“Happy Bornday to my man Preservation and the late great Barry White”

“SePtember 1200 is a 12-track instrumental album inspired by Preservation’s sharing of the same birth date – September 12th – as the one and only Barry White.  The concept of the album is based on material sourced from the maestro’s discography and produced solely on the 10-second sampling time of the classic drum machine, the SP-1200.  The result is an outstanding 30-minute presentation of Preservation’s approach to constructing albums with a deeply personal touch that takes the listener on a journey of styles and moods.”

Greg "Cognito" Barr first entered the hip hop world as a dancer during the early 1990s in the DC metro area. Later his love for hip hop brought him to Atlanta, GA where he formed the underground group massinfluence. With massinfluence, the relationships within the music industry grew both here in the US and abroad during their many European tours with the likes of the Company Flow, Beat Junkies, Jurassic 5, De La Soul, Blackstar and many others. Also during these years is when Cognito, also known as "Nito", put his mark in hip hop iconography by introducing his line of t-shirts "Nonstop Hip Hop" which was featured in classic video by De La Soul and Jeru the Damaja. Over the past 10 years, Nito has captured classic footage of some of hip hops greatest, including Jay Z, Mos Def, The Gorillaz, Nikka Costa, MF DOOM, De La Soul, Pharoahe Monch and The Roots. Recently, Cognito shot and compiled 4 years of concert and behind the scenes footage of Talib Kweli for a still to be released documentary.
