Natural Mystic the Trumpet releases new single ‘Christmas Time’

The songwriter and producer of pop and modern soul music known as Natural Mystic the Trumpet has released his latest official single, “Christmas Time.” It has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Warm, inviting, and filled with the holiday spirit, “Christmas Time” is the latest reason to give Natural Mystic the Trumpet a fresh listen.

“Christmas Time” is Natural Mystic the Trumpet’s most recent official release since his popular “Save a Little Love” single which appeared in spring 2020.

Bermuda’s Natural Mystic the Trumpet describes himself as “an alchemist in the making,” saying that he writes songs specifically to change the world around him for the better.

“My music is meant to promote love and positivity,” Natural Mystic writes. “It is very catchy and groovy, containing the elements of fire and seasoning to get you in the mood.”
Asked to describe the overall theme of “Christmas Time,” Natural Mystic the Trumpet writes, “It shares a love relationship between a couple at Christmas, also the love of family and friends at this important time of the Season. It reminds us of God’s unconditional love for us, and the true meaning of Christmas, which is Christ’s birth.”

This knack for infusing music with deeper meanings is a consistent thread in Mystic’s repertoire, as can be seen in his comments about his April release, “Save a Little Love,” about which he wrote:

“The message in my music is very deep and has a story and meaning behind it. Like a riddle from the wise and a proverb from the old, each song has a way to put it or explain itself. The message is always meant to be positive and spiritual. I’m hoping to touch and enlighten others with the light in my music, hoping it will encourage them to find their purpose and true calling in life.”

This true calling is something Mystic, himself, seems to have happily found.

“I was raised up listening to music on the radio,” he says of this, “hearing old school dancehall, soul, and R&B. Later, I discovered I had the gift to sing. So, I wrote my own music, and put myself out there to develop myself as artist.”

“Christmas Time” by Natural Mystic the Trumpet is available from over 500 quality digital music stores online worldwide now. Get in early, holiday music fans.

He began singing onstage at the age of five, and soon relocated to Canada’s cultural epicenter of Montréal. Through the ’90s and until 2004, Moore-Hodge performed as tenor in two of Montréal’s premier gospel choirs, Genuine Faith and the R.O.C.K.

Both choirs took him across Canada and the U.S. to play at venues and events such as local churches, gospel concerts, jazz festivals, the Gospel Music Workshop of America, for Governor Generals, Queen Elizabeth II, and at the Summit of the Americas which hosted 35 heads of state from the western hemisphere.

Additionally, Roger Moore-Hodge has shared the stage with such performers as Ginette Reno, Shirley Caesar, Twinkie Clark, Lisa McClendon, Craig Hayes and James Hall, as well as singing backup for gospel legend Marvin Sapp. He performed onscreen in the year 2000 in a quartet for the Growing Pains reunion movie. 2004 saw Moore-Hodge in Atlanta, GA, as a member of Destiny Metropolitan Worship Church, and five years later he returned home to Montreal.

Asked to describe the overall theme of “Run from Love,” Adam John’s representation writes: “From soulful heartbreak records, to hard-hitting trap songs, this sonic masterpiece of work portrays it all. Over ’80s synth beats (Meant to Be) (Promises), and high-impact trap/club instrumentals (Gucci Fedora) (Wet Spot), Adam John depicts his story of love, and of life without it.”

Adam John says of his start in music that he started writing songs in 8th grade.

“Teachers would be teaching lessons and I would be laser focused on a piece of composition paper writing notebooks full of lyrics down,” says Adam John. “I always loved to create and loved it even more when people connected.”

Even earlier, the artist became used to drawing an audience.

“When I was 9 I used to stand at the local shopping mall and belt out Jackson 5 songs,” he writes. “People would crowd around me from the entire mall and fill up my hat with money. One time I made a stack doing it. My friends and I went upstairs afterwards, and I bought us all skateboards. I didn’t do it for the hustle then, It was the thrill. I’ve always loved to perform and was never concerned about what someone thought about me doing it. My grandfather instilled that in me. I knew I had a gift.”

New Orleans rapper E.D. Nix releases fifth album ‘Stay Out The Way’

NEW ORLEANS, La., 2020-Nov-10 — 

The songwriter and producer of rap and hip-hop known as E.D. Nix dropped his fifth official album at the start of 2020, “Stay Out The Way.” It has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry on the Blvxk Supremc Creative Collective record label. Gritty, real, and overflowing with clever lines and rhymes, “Stay Out The Way” spotlighted E.D. Nix as one of the most intriguing artists of the year, and paved the way for his forthcoming sixth record.

New Orleans’ E.D. Nix cites as a main artistic influence his education at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, which he attended on scholarship.

“One of the greatest experiences of my life,” writes Nix, going on to say that partially as a result, he’s “influenced by almost any kind of art” today. Nix also mentions names such as Jay Electronica, Benny the Butcher, Rick Ross, J. Cole, and Kendrick Lamar, with whom he feels a professional kinship. E.D. Nix’s sales were quoted as solid for more than six consecutive months without an official video or any paid promotion. When it shakes out, Nix may prove to be just as good (if not better than) them all. With an emphasis on bass-built beats and razor-sharp urban poetry, “Stay Out The Way” by E.D. Nix has a little something for every fan of the sound.

He hasn’t been sitting on his hands, either.

“Next album is done for sure,” writes E.D. Nix. “It will be out this winter.”

That record, “Blvxk Economics Vol. 1,” will mark Nix’s sixth official LP release.

“I’m definitely more of a quality over quantity person,” he says of this. “My music is raw and I’m opening up more and more being a little more vulnerable with my audience. I’m only getting better.”

Asked to describe the overall theme of the present “Stay Out The Way” album drop, E.D. Nix writes, “My message shares a recap of my hustle. I want to personally let everyone know I appreciate all the support. We got the Master rating on Tidal, 5 Stars on Apple Music. That’s a pretty cool accomplishment for us at the label.”

In addition to hip hop polished to a high shine, E.D. Nix also comes brimming with social commentary he’s not half shy to talk about.

“If you aren’t familiar with the concept,” he writes, “do some research on Dr. Claude Anderson. We at Blvxk Supremc Creative Collective LLC will continue to support the growth of black owned businesses in America and the fight for justice and equality for Black people around the world. Protect black women because Black Lives Matter. Love and peace to everyone ✊”

E.D. Nix extends gracious thanks to Mico Davis, Johnny Beatz, E.F. Cuttin, Josh “SUMO” Guidry, Knick Gunna, and “everyone else who played an integral part of making the ‘Stay Out The Way’ album happen.”

“Stay Out The Way” by E.D. Nix on the Blvxk Supremc Creative Collective label is available from quality digital music stores online worldwide now. Get in early, rap and hip-hop music fans.

Alt hip-hop and rock artist Tabusha drops debut LP ‘Contrast’

The songwriter and producer of alternative hip-hop and rock known as Tabusha has released his official debut album, “Contrast.” It contains 13 original Tabusha tracks for an approximate total listening time of 45 minutes. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry on the Urban Genie record label. Fun, classy, and with a suave delivery on rock-solid back beats, “Contrast” introduces Tabusha as one of the most intriguing West Coast artists to emerge late 2020.

Asked to cite some main artistic influences, Orange County’s Tabusha says only that he pulls inspiration from all facets of music.

“I take influences from many different places,” Tabusha says. “Tough to pin it down to a few.”

Asked to label his music as a genre, he settles on two subcategories, Alternative/Experimental Rock and Indie Hip-Hop. The artist has also called his new LP “modern, personal and psychological.”

“The lyrics on each song are moreso epiphanies and struggles that I ponder on the daily,” says the artist. “It’s music intended for a community.”

Asked to talk about the overall theme of “Contrast,” Tabusha writes, “One theme is depersonalization and awakening. Even the title, ‘Contrast,’ alludes to differing from the norm. Adjusting the contrast can make for a better picture.”

With an emphasis on groove, impact and emotional evocation, “Contrast” by Tabusha has a little something for every fan of fringe alt-rock and hip-hop sounds. Still, “Contrast” is more than mere rhythm and flow, a record with purpose behind its notes.

“Obviously other than my love for music,” Tabusha writes, “this album was inspired by “the current climate in the world.” He notes, too, that the album’s having 13 tracks alludes to a number with particular significance to his family.

“As this is my debut album,” he says, “I thought it was right to pay respects to my family and to myself to be blatant about a message. I think it’s clear in the listening.”

Tabusha extends thanks and credits to Loren Fleisher for tracking and extra polish, Logan McGarry for co-production on “All Alive,” and Luis Finsterwalder for album artwork.

“Contrast” by Tabusha on the Urban Genie label is available from over 500 quality digital music stores online worldwide now. Get in early, alternative hip-hop music fans.

The songwriter and producer of rap and hip hop music known as Cruz Cartello has released his official debut album, “O2: Life N Da Game.” It contains 10 original Cruz Cartello tracks for an approximate total listening time of half an hour.

Mississippi’s Cruz Cartello cites as main artistic influences Tupac, Jay-Z, Eminem, Master P, and Playa Fly. With an emphasis on creative, colorful bass and melody lines and fun back beats that bear repeating, “O2: Life N Da Game” by Cruz Cartello has a little something for everybody.

Asked to describe the overall theme of “O2: Life N Da Game,” Cruz Cartello writes in no uncertain terms: “My message is my Memfhmiz Campaign is here and I want the world to witness it.”

Cruz Cartello has been performing as an MC since middle school. Originally from Memphis, TN, his parents moved the family to Southaven, MS to keep Cruz from gang activity. His current official bio says of this:

“Here he would begin making mixtapes flowing over popular radio songs and other beats he liked. Teaching himself how to count bars by studying his favorite rap stars, he also produced his own songs by recording instrumentals only a few seconds long, but over and over again until the tracks were long enough. Honing his skills all along, Cruz would begin stockpiling songs that have yet to be released, until now.”

Cartello has called “O2: Life N Da Game” the first of a series of projects yet to come. Italicized by its flagship single and accompanying official music video, “Bou Dat,” “O2: Life N Da Game” is set to showcase Cruz Cartello to the world in live streaming performances for 2021 and onstage ASAP.
