Rapper Bugzb releases new single ‘Freak’ feat. Jamillions

The rapper from Philadelphia known as Bugzb has released his latest single, “Freak” feat. Jamillions. In addition to the talents of Bugzb and Jamillions, it has been produced by the popular DJ, DIM-C. The track has been proudly published on the Nefertiti Entertainment independent record label without the control or financial support of the corporate music industry. Mixing elements of the old school with sonic styles of the new millennium, “Freak” feat. Jamillions stands as proof that Bugzb is a name to watch for fans of hip hop everywhere.

Bugzb cites as main artistic influences such legends of hip hop and pop as Tupac Shakur, the Notorious B.I.G., Lenny Kravitz, and Jay Z. His own signature sound takes attributes from each of these to make a spacious, groovy dance floor track based almost entirely on razor-sharp rapping and minimal melody lines. Except for the rhythm provided by Bugzb and Jamillions themselves, a whumping bass carries nearly all percussion through each verse, more than enough for dancers to feel the move.

“Freak” by Bugzb is a track excellently suited to DJ play lists, bumping in cars, and personal listening in headphones alike. It is a clear example of how well-written hip-hop vocals make great music when paired with masterfully crafted, unobtrusive production.

Asked to describe the message of his latest single, Bugzb writes, “Music is the only true source of pleasure, life without music is only error, a grueling task, an exile.”

“Freak” by Bugzb feat. Jamillions and produced by DJ DIM-C is available at over 700 digital music stores online worldwide now. Fans of hip hop and nightclub music everywhere should get in early.

Joseph Paul Freije releases second summer album ‘Electric Phlower’

Composer and visionary Joseph Paul Freije has released his second album of the 2016 summer, “Electric Phlower.” The album contains 14 original Freije tracks for an approximate total listening time of 50 minutes. Like his other records, “Electric Phlower” has been proudly published on the Phrygian Music independent record label without the direction or support of the corporate music industry. Upbeat, energizing, and entirely fun, “Electric Phlower” is electronic dance music for the youthfulness in all of us.

Phrygian Music’s Joseph P. Freije is an eclectic experimental composer with a wider variety of original music in his repertoire than most highly creative musicians working today. He has composed music in categories as disparate as jazz, electronica, pop, adult contemporary, EDM, experimental, rock, and yet more. He is also one of today’s most prolific independent musicians. “Electric Phlower” represents the second of six full-length records from Freije which will be made available in 2016 (four this summer alone).

“Music is the highest form of spiritual communication that exists,” Freije said last May in an interview for his “Elements of Evidence” LP. “The world uses music for purposes that cloud the reality of what music really is: medicine and a reason for living.”

This sonic medicine and raison d’être is especially invigorating in “Electric Phlower,” as it is 100% undiluted dance music, the most danceable record to come from Freije yet. While the sound of it may surprise some of his most loyal fans, Freije’s personality still shines throughout, elucidating yet another facet of his ever-unfolding character.

“I like having fun,” writes the artist. “Dancing is fun, so I play dance music as well as the other genres.”

It may be hard to imagine the avant-garde composer of jazz and experimental piano himself on the dancefloor, but the truth is it’s close to his heart.

“I used to love to roller skate to this kind of music, was a real wild man on skates.”

Constantly haunting the rink, fellow roller addicts had a name for him: “Superman.”

It’s a feeling “Electric Phlower” communicates directly. The album doesn’t just give the listener a reason to move, to groove, to shuck and jive – it empowers the dancer to make an instrument of the body and join the orchestra in a celebration of being alive.

“Electric Phlower” by Joseph Paul Freije is available online worldwide at over 700 online music stores now. Be sure also to hear “Elements of Evidence,” also available for listening and download now.

Big Flame Thrower releases new rap single ‘I Be Working’

The hip hop performer known as Big Flame Thrower has released his latest rap single, “I Be Working.” The track has been proudly published on the Flamed Up Records independent music label without the control of the corporate music industry. Booming with bass and flexing with healthy aggression, “I Be Working” by Big Flame Thrower proves that hip hop in 2016 is stronger than ever.

New Orleans’ Big Flame Thrower cites as main artistic influences Jay-Z, D.M.X, Soulja Slim, Jadakiss, the Notorious BIG, Lil Wayne, 50 Cent and Birdman.

“Really everyone who’s making a living doing music,” writes Big Flame. “Successful artists influence me. Young Thug, Future, 2 Chains, Drake, and Yo Gotti are the artists of this era that I look to for influence.”

Big Flame Thrower’s name hints at his style of hip hop production. “I Be Working” brings big, big sound and intelligent, even inspiring lyrics. Flame raps from the heart with drum and bass to back him in a solid, sonic wall. Synth melody lines are clever and surprising, unique and effective. While it’s a positive, empowering hip hop track, the sound of “…Working” is ominous and dark.

“I Be Working” is the first single from his upcoming project, “Real Talk Vol II.” It’s also a personal track.

“My album will tell my story,” Flame writes. “How I live, how I came from nothing and against all odds – I still do this. It will display pain, raw talent, strong sexual music, and also songs that’s thought provoking, just something a little different from the normal. It will give you a look into my life.”

Big Flame Thrower broke into the scene with his debut solo project, “My Time to Shine.” He has been called by fans and friends by several names: Black Sheep, World Wide, and simply, “Rap.” He has been freestyle rapping since 12. He has shared the stage with popular Louisiana artists such as Lil Josh & Lil Earnest, Sam I Am, U.N.L.V, Outlaw Music Group, 5th Ward Weebie, Webbie, Asia Sky, Lil Boosie, Hot Boy Ronald, U.T.P, BDMG, Mr. Magic (No Limit), Lava House Records, and more. He has opened for acts as well-known as the Party Boys, B.G., Huey, Canibus, and U.G.K. Records.

The rapper is a humble man but one with plenty of ambition.

“Though very few people outside of Louisiana and Mississippi have heard of Big Flame Thrower,” he says, “make no mistake that my drive, persistence, humility, and talent will take me just where I’m destined to go – to stardom.”

“I Be Working” by Big Flame Thrower is available online worldwide at over 700 digital music stores beginning 19 July 2016.

Country star Rhea Francani releases new LP ‘Now or Never’

The singer and songwriter of country music known as Rhea Francani has released her debut full-length album, “Now or Never.” The track has been proudly published on the Limestone Records LLC independent music label. It contains 12 original songs for an approximate listening time of 45 minutes. These include her hit singles, “Dizzy” and “Shotgun Baby,” which have won her country and pop music listeners all over North America. Populated with catchy hooks, danceable rhythms and the genuine, warm singing for which fans have come to love her, “Now or Never” showcases Rhea Francani as the most important new country artist of 2016.

Rhea Francani cites as artistic influences Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert, Lady Antebellum, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, and Michael Jackson. The overarching character present in her “Now or Never” record is her own, however. This is partially due to sonic roots which stretch far into her past.

“I started singing when I was really young,” notes Francani. “Being around my family inspired me a lot with music.”

The familial aspect of Francani’s “Now or Never” debut is such that two of its 12 tracks are written by her sister, Adria. It’s an album of much emotional and tonal scope, with traditional rock-tinged country songs like “Runaway,” harder tracks like “Whatcha Gonna Say,” delicate ballads like “I Want You to Know,” and songs of great intensity like “Is this Love.” It’s a highly personal record, one in which Francani wears her heart on her sleeve.

“My debut shares honest experiences with listeners I think they are familiar with,” Francani writes. “It’s filled with lyrics about life and love. Both can be beautiful and fleeting at the same time and I believe the songs off the album portray the beautiful experiences, as well as the challenges that come throughout the journey of life.”

Pressed to describe “Now or Never”’s overall theme, she writes:

“Take in every moment and live in the now.”

Francani’s first single, “Dizzy,” has reached #11 on the global HotDisc chart and is in rotation on All Access Nashville radio services. Raised in New York but living now in Nashville, TN, her debut EP, “I Want You to Know,” was the anthem of a city girl with a country spirit.

“Although I am from New York,” she writes, “I am drawn to the southern charm of country music’s heartfelt lyrics – songs about love, life, and good times. I bring a bit of the city to the country.”

Previous to her career as a singer-songwriter, Rhea Francani performed jazz and theater, and nurtured her future career as a musician by listening to Motown soul.

“Now or Never” by Rhea Francani is available at over 700 digital music stores online worldwide beginning 19 July 2016. Get in early, country fans.

Davis Cooper releases inspirational single ‘Jesus’

The singer and songwriter internationally known as Davis Cooper has released his flagship inspirational single, “Jesus.” The track has been proudly published as an independent single outside the control of the corporate music industry. Mellow, uplifting and unerringly true to the Christian tradition, “Jesus” is a track showcasing Davis Cooper’s musical intuition and earnest spiritual depth as both a writer and performer.

Toronto, Canada’s Davis Cooper cites as main artistic influences Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones, and Jimi Hendrix, as well as those he refers to as “the great classical musicians of long ago.” The common elements of these are most present in Cooper’s 25-song LP record which is available for streaming online, but his “Jesus” single remains the track for which he is best known and most loudly lauded.

Published in its definitive form in 2013, the single has remained popular and prominent since that time though it has always been a download-only offering. Cooper himself calls it his proudest work to date.

“This is a very precious song for me,” Cooper writes. “It was largely inspired after a very difficult period in my life.”

The religious aspect of the song stands out as its most compelling feature in spite of beautifully minimalist chord progressions and unassuming folk-rock vocals by Cooper. With careful and deliberate lyrics Davis Cooper narrates the story of Jesus Christ in poetic, yet simple language which paints familiar imagery in a way that is fresh and new.

Fans of artists like Elton John will appreciate the elegant piano playing and pop-minded, infectious music structures, while listeners of Bob Dylan will hear a similarly heartfelt tenor in Cooper’s words and vocal performance. Longtime music aficionados are certain to note the live aspect of his “Jesus” studio recording. Hearing the song is a very close experience to being in the room as the artist plays, one which is palpable and in some ways the song’s best feature – a trait many musicians and producers attempt to create which can never, ever be imitated.

All in all, Davis Cooper’s “Jesus” is a track which Christians and fans of great songwriting should hear at their earliest convenience.

“Jesus” by Davis Cooper is available at over 700 digital music stores online worldwide now.

Announcing: Break These Chains Music Video by Master Mark featuring K-Rino

Announcing: Break These Chains Music Video by Master Mark featuring K-Rino

Hip hop artist Master Mark took the gardening world by storm with his recent “Gardening is Gangsta” Music Video.  Today he released Break These Chains, a song about the invisible chains that keep us in bondage.  Mark believes these metaphorical chains have been used to turn modern society into one giant slave plantation.

Mark argues that there is a spiritual realm that coexists with our physical realm, “It’s real, it’s there and it’s important.  If you are not aware of it’s existence then YOU ARE ASLEEP!”

The typical image of a slave brings up memories of whips and actual chains, but Mark says credit card debt, mortgages, car notes, and student loan debt, are the modern day slave’s new chains. Parking tickets, late fees, overdraft fees, over the limit fees, taxes, etc.. serve the same purpose that the whips and lashings once served.

Instead of plantation owners, we have politicians and militarized police who are still as violent and brutal as ever.  In fact, modern policing was developed to return slaves to their owners before and during the Civil War. Mark argues that new slave masters are elected by the slave population under the guise of a Democrat Republican form of government that creates a false illusion of freedom.

“Stop playing their silly democrat/ republican games.  This is so blasphemous!  A bunch of old men dressed up in suits trying to create division within the masses to protect the corporatocracy that they created out of our once great nation.  Ignore them.  Don’t vote.  Their phony system will then soon come to an end.” – Master Mark

According to Mark the public school systems and television programming contribute to the slave-like mind state of modern Americans. This upbringing convinces people that they are free, even though they are met with force and theft at every turn.  Mark gives the analogy of a no seat belt ticket;

“Say you get a no seat belt ticket for $300 and you pay it.  And say you work hard every day for $60 per day after taxes and deductions.  A $300 ticket equals 5 days of work.  So you had to serve 5 hard days of work for free just because this cop wanted to protect and serve you.  You were just sentenced to be a slave to the system.”

The message Mark brings with this video is that you don’t have to wear these chains. They are voluntary. Stay out of credit card debt by not getting credit cards, or stop using them if you have them. Eliminate all debt in your life and stop taking on new debt. If you cannot pay cash you cannot afford it.

In the video there is a fight sequence. Mark says the fight scenes represent the spiritual battle that goes on inside each and every one of us.

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”  -Ephesians 6:12

Roland Parker releases new album ‘Gonna Make It’

The singer and songwriter known as Roland Parker has released his latest LP record, “Gonna Make It.” The album contains 11 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 45 minutes. It features the popular Parker single, “Better Not Quit.” Both have been proudly published on the Roland Parker Records independent music label outside the creative control of the corporate music industry. Funky, groovy, full of bass, rhythm ‘n’ blues, “Gonna Make It” by Roland Parker is a soul album for the new millennium.

Chapel Hill, NC’s Roland Parker cites as main artistic influences Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Ernie Isley (the Isley Brothers) and Frank Marino (Mahogany Rush). As a result, his guitar style is steeped in the funk-infused classic rock style of the late ’60s and ’70s, particularly with regard to Hendrix and Marino, whose seminal guitar modes are most like the playing and songwriting of Roland Parker on his “Gonna Make It” record.

Upbeat, positive and even heartwarming at times, Parker’s “Gonna Make It” is a friendly, welcoming collection of soul songs with a good sense of humor and more than its fair share of groove. Sporting songs with titles such as “Luva Hata,” “Put that Funk in My Face” and “Fried Chickhen and Wallamellon,” “Gonna Make It” is an album with variety in spades. This variety is indicative of Parker’s own personality and manner of songwriting and performance.

“Don’t be afraid to play what you wanna play!” exclaims Roland Parker on being asked to describe the major theme of his new LP. “These days you must be rap or rock or pop. I play from rock and jazz to country, and whatever you hear, it is from my heart.”

A self-taught professional from the old school, Roland Parker has been performing live for more than three decades. He isn’t afraid of painting with unconventional colors, either.

“I like to take chances,” he says. “If it works, fine. If not? Oh, well. I’m an artist and I love people!”

Asked to provide a copy of his current bio, Parker is quick to reply.

“Love is my bio.”

“Gonna Make It” and its single, “Better Not Quit” by Roland Parker are available now at over 700 digital music outlets online worldwide.
