M64 is the collaboration of vocalist, Ragen Fykes & emcee/producer Ohmega Watts.
"The M64 Collabo is when Ohmega and I link together and we make music. It stands for Messar 64. It's also known as the Black Eye galaxy." Messar 64 was created when two other galaxies collided in space, causing the smaller, inner galaxy to spin clockwise. The gases from this galaxy in turn, make the larger, outer galaxy rotate counter-clockwise. Fykes discovered Messar 64 while at work one day, researching, "things that were spacey." Watts liked the sound of the shortened version and the two of them agreed that the name represented their creative collaborative efforts.
“Before Grillade was actually a band, project or even a concept, Ragen Fykes was visiting the Bay Area. The plan was to meet up with Ragen maybe grab some food and hang out.” - Keelay What actually ended up happening is Keelay and long time friends and collaborators The Park eventually found themselves at Bird and Egg Studios along with Ms. Fykes. That night there was no plans of making anything specific, rather just wanted to make whatever came to mind. What actually did come to mind is this remake of M64's "In the Pocket". Since then Ragen Fykes, The Park and Keelay have embarked on a full length project calling themselves Grillade. Here is a taste of what is to come mixed with some good old M64. It has truly been an honor to collaborate with M64 and Record Breaking to bring you this remix.
