F E R G U S O N releases new album ‘From the Door’

The songwriter and producer of hip hop known as FERGUSON has released his latest official LP album, “From the Door.” The album contains 14 original FERGUSON tracks for an approximate total listening time of just under an hour. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry on the Stone Table Music Group record label. A gritty, true set of tales from the urban way of life, “From the Door” showcases FERGUSON as one of the most intriguing hip-hop artists of the year so far and promises that we can expect plenty more in the years to come.

This album has not a lot of fiction but my life growing up and surviving the streets of Brooklyn,” FERGUSON writes.

Brooklyn, NYC’s FERGUSON (often stylized “F E R G U S O N”) cites as main artistic influences Samuel Harris, his grandfather (“for the great collection of music we listened to”), Rakin, Big Daddy Kane, Tupac Shakur, and Jay Z. FERGUSON’s own sound takes elements from each of these and adds something fresh and unique for a result unlike anything today’s music fans have heard before. With an emphasis on rhymes, beats and bass lines, “From the Door” by FERGUSON has a little something for every avid hip-hop listener.

“From the Door” was produced by FERGUSON and CMT Miraculous.

Commenting on the overall meaning of “From the Door,” FERGUSON says, “It shares a gift with word play, smooth but rugged voice and vocals. That I never give up or gave up. That I am a very colorful personality. It says the ladies will be pleased that I am here, and that I’m consistent. I love what I do, and don’t think it’s sweet.”

Asked to describe his start in music, FERGUSON writes, “My close friends had a group, MADSTYLE. They gave me the opportunity to shine on their album, ‘Redrum.’ Moving in the Madstyle circle, I then hooked up with Sting International and worked on my first project.”

FERGUSON has worked in various capacities with popular artists such as The Masterful CMT Miraculous, Shaggy, Ziggy Marley, D’Wyze of the B.U.M.S, CPO Boss Hogg, RBX, and the Sting International label. FERGUSON also published a feature on the movie soundtrack, “Showtime,” starring Eddie Murphy and Robert Dinero.

There’s always truth in my songs,” FERGUSON writes. “Even if it’s a story from me, it’s a truth about you!”

From the Door” by FERGUSON on the Stone Table Music Group label is available from over 600 quality digital music stores online worldwide now. Get in early, hip-hop fans.

Rapper Hanuman releases debut LP ‘Nirvana’

The West Coast rapper known as Hanuman has released his long-awaited LP record, “Nirvana.” The album contains 11 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of half an hour. It has been proudly published on the Blue Lotus Ent. independent label outside the control of the corporate music industry. Thumping, grooving, and packed with rock-solid rhymes and lines, Hanuman’s “Nirvana” debut proves him to be a hip-hop force to be reckoned with.

Originally from CA’s Bay Area music hotbed, Hanuman cites as main influences Talib Kweli, Mos Def, Guru (Gang Starr), Common, early Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco, and Immortal Technique. Music fans familiar with these hip-hop titans will recognize the artist’s good taste, the same good taste on which “Nirvana” is built.

Hanuman’s seemingly innate understanding of what will sound best pervades every track, from the tone of each percussion instrument to the careful space between each beat, and from the deliberate choice of every lyric to the natural, unpretentious flow of his delivery. “Nirvana” has plenty of variety between the tracks, but each of them is as good as the last. Fans of Hanuman are not likely to pick favorites, and if they can do so, their favorites are likely to change. This is that kind of record.

Hanuman takes his name from the Hindu god of the same name, just as his debut LP takes its name from the Buddhist and Hindu concept of attaining reunion with the godhead. There’s a positivity in his music that makes these titles fitting.

“There’s always good in the bad,” Hanuman writes of the themes of his record. “No matter how bad things are you can rise above it.”

Philosophical ideas often crop up in his rap, too.

“Some things can’t be understood unless you experience it personally,” he writes. “Your actions create your reality. There’s a lot of gray in certain human beliefs. We’re all connected, even if we don’t realize it.”

Hanuman has lived in Oakland, around the Bay Area, in Los Angeles, in Las Vegas, and in the northern California town of Alturas where his rap career began.

He tells it, “I basically hit the ground running late 2010 with the writing, finishing a mixtape and an EP. I finished four more mixtapes and four more EPs by December 2014. I worked on my debut album all of 2015.”

Hanuman’s plans include music videos, promo shows, radio interviews and features, as well as ground-level street promos. With the top-shelf quality of this record, there’s nothing stopping him from taking it much, much further.

“Nirvana” by Hanuman is available online worldwide at over 700 digital music stores now. Get in early. Very early.

David Crown releases single ‘Rehab’

The singer of hip-hop infused electronic dance music known as David Crown has released the second in his pair of newest singles, “Rehab.” It has been concurrently published by Crown in February 2015 alongside his “Girls” track, both of which are being proudly published as independent releases without the support of the corporate music infrastructure. An official video for “Girls” is expected to appear from Crown online in coming weeks. Packed with drum ‘n’ bass, cutting-edge EDM effects, and the arresting vocal performance of one of the dance scene’s most rapidly rising stars, “Rehab” is a track DJs around the world can begin to spin immediately.

David Crown’s characteristic knack for crossing hip hop with electronic dance music is perhaps showcased nowhere better than it is in “Rehab.” Vivifying, innervating, and sure to amp the vibes of party goers in virtually any situation, the track is the latest sign that the EDM juggernaut hasn’t slowed down one iota since its sudden leap to prominence in the mid- 2000s.

Unlike many EDM songwriters and performers, however, David Crown takes pride in crafting meaningful, sculpted lines and rhymes which have more in common with rap music than to the more-simplistic singing which often accompanies electronic dance music. In this, “Rehab” makes a fine example, as it is not a song about drugs and rehabilitation but rather a romantic ode to a woman who acts as a rehab of the heart for the singer of the song.

This emotional intensity is something Crown’s fans have come to love him for.

His official bio says of this, “With his appreciation for life, Crown believes that time is of the essence and lives each day like it’s his last, which manifests in the lyrics he delivers and his spur-of-the-moment lifestyle.”

Commenting on his lyrical content and humble nature, it continues:

“A true artist on the come-up, Crown is committed to bringing fans uplifting material with substance that is still cool enough to make you dance. While his star may be rising, he is still that guy hailing from the ‘City of Kings’ who went after his dreams and never gave up.”

“Rehab” by David Crown is available online worldwide. Be sure to watch also for his “Girls” single and upcoming video.

Hip-Hop Artist Bob J.r. Releases New E.P., “Real Hip-Hop”

Bay area hip-hop artist, Bob J.r., has released the first EP in his Truth Music movement, “Real Hip-Hop.”

Bob J.r.

California Bay area hip-hop artist Bob J.r. has released an EP titled “Real Hip-Hop,” his first officially published album. The EP primarily features Bob J.r.'s vocals, lyrics, and orchestration as a contemporary example of the Berkeley hip-hop sound, and solidifies his claim to the local mainstream.

Far from the typical beats and cliched chord progressions of contemporary top-40 hip-hop, Bob J.r.'s “Real Hip-Hop” is a fresh, honest treatment of the genre's roots, utilizing classic rhythm patterns and minimal background fill, a style with the space and deep groove of nineties hip-hop that also manages to sound raw, edgy, and modern.

A musical autodidact, Bob J.r. taught himself to play the drums while growing up in Oakland, California, as Bobby Nathaniel Hamilton Jr. His first live performances were for the congregation at his family church, which he played at the age of ten to much acclaim and encouragement, but it was in secular hip-hop that Bob found his musical inspiration.

High school found him collaborating with friends on live instruments such as a snare drum, saxophone, trombone, and bass guitar (occasionally onstage) and rather than attending classes, he soon found a home on the UC Berkeley campus where he could experiment with lyrics and refine his freestyle-rap technique. He began to produce, engineer, and record his own tracks on an old Casio keyboard with an audio cassette input.

From the beginning, Bob has always emphasized the importance of truth in lyrics, which is part of his “Truth Music” philosophy. Bob says of this, “We have to change the format of hip hop and talk about real life situations. The time has come for the younger generation get some kind of structure and guidance.”

Bob J.r.'s EP, “Real Hip-Hop,” is available online now.

The EP “Real Hip-Hop” is distributed globally by MondoTunes (www.MondoTunes.com) and is available at iTunes for convenient purchase and download

Hip Hop Artist Golden Boy Releases EP, “Top Hits Generations”

Cameroon-born danceclub artist Golden Boy (Fospassin) has released his third major record in as many years, “Top Hits Generations,” including six complete, all-new tracks

Golden Boy (Fospassin)

 

Golden Boy (also known as Fospassin) has recently released a new EP, “Top Hits Generations,” to broad fan and critical acclaim worldwide. Having pressed material in 2005, 2006, and 2007, Cameroon-born Golden Boy has spent the last three years honing his stage performance all over the world, but with six full-length dance tracks under his belt, he has decided to publish a new EP rather than make fans of Fospassin wait any longer.

 

Living now in Marietta, GA, Golden Boy’s music has been awarded more than 15 times in 2 years. Some of his accolades are: Special Mention, Music Aid Awards 2006 (United Nations); Best Video of the Year Nominee, LA Music Awards 2006; and Honorable Mention, Indie Music Awards 2006. He receives more than 15000 weekly radio airplay reports worldwide.

 

Golden Boy is at once the composer, producer, engineer, lyricist and performer of his tracks, which find acceptance in locales as disparate as Moscow and Tokyo. He has been called “The King of Monkey Dance,” a “Bob Marley and Tupac revolution,” and the “ultimate singer/songwriter for the 21st-century music lover.” His 2007 single, “Hot Crunk,” continues to garner attention on Internet radio stations, iTunes, and YouTube a full 5 years later.

 

Golden Boy’s influences are exotic and widely varied, which give his art a “world music” feel, occasionally causing him to be filed in record stores under surprising genres. His remarkable vocals (often written and sung in his native French) lend heavy, rich overtones that compliment his female background trio and lend ballast to each track. His orchestration is melodic and simple, and never overproduced. Of his own music, Golden Boy has said, “[I am] surrounded by energy, emotions and people from all over the world…bringing to the world something hot for people to forget their worries.”

 

The LP “Hip Hop Generations” is distributed globally by MondoTunes and is available at iTunes for purchase and download

Canadian Underground Hip-Hop Artist, Kareem Live, Releases Powerful New Single “Bionic”

Kareem is releasing his most explosive, most recent contribution to French electronic hip-hop with his new single “Bionic,” stamping his name in the rich history of Quebec’s musical underground.

Canadian underground Hip-Hop artist Kareem Live is releasing his most powerful single yet: Bionic.

 

Kareem moved to the Outaouais region of Quebec from Morocco at the age of 2. Inspired by alternative music such as Nirvana and Metallica, he learned to play guitar, and formed the band No Self Control when he was 15 years old.

 

By the time he reached adulthood, however, his tastes changed. French hip-hop, fueled by popular artists such as MC Solaar and Iam, were blowing minds all over Europe and Canada. Kareem was no exception. He listened, he learned, and found his passion for lyrical poetry in underground hip-hop.

 

Kareem met his friend and producer, Da Heala, in 1999, and right away they collaborated to create hip-hop music as The Symphony, Kareem’s first regularly performing group. During this period Kareem earned the respect of Francois Carrier, president of the Association of Professionals of Song and Music (APCM, Canada). The president’s respect proved well-placed: Kareem succeeded to the annual Hip Hop 4-Ever semi-finals twice consecutively.

 

This led to a pair of publicly broadcasted appearances on Le Garage, hosted by Veronic DiCaire on Radio-Canada and ARTV. A wave of encouragement and popular demand ensued, prompting Kareem to record his first professional track at Raven Studios, where he was introduced to a Quest sound technician who would become his right-hand man. They opened a sound studio together.

 

Soon afterward in 2002, Kareem was awarded the Embassy of France’s grand prize in a music competition and was sent to Paris to learn and collaborate with French artists. He appeared onstage more and more frequently, and his writing became prolific. He performed a duet, “Persuing My Dreams,” with Canadian Idol Eva Avila.

 

Kimberly Graveline of Tag Radio, the voice of the Outaouais, invited Kareem for a series of interviews on the air, and having decided him the obvious candidate, took him to a press conference organized by the Regional Office of AIDS Services (ARMS). It was here that the media became infatuated with Kareem, thinking him a symbol and example of the best art in the region, and a slough of interviews in print as well as on the airwaves continue to keep him busy.

 

Now Kareem is live and ready to release his most explosive, most recent contribution to French electronic hip-hop, stamp his name in the history of Quebec’s musical underground and help it attain the global attention it clearly deserves.

 

Kareem’s video “Bionic” is available for viewing at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mc1y4iTC02Q.
