Blurb
Pages unleashes a blatant challenge to all pseudo-rappers and Hip-Hop posers with the release of his latest single, "Mainstream Nightmare." The song features strong yet soothing vocals by Juliet, contrasting the edginess of Pages' lyrics and backed by the glitch-heavy drums and eerie, distorted sounds of Nick Fury (of Liquid Shields), whose resume includes production with the likes of Anthony B., Ras Kass, Skam2?, Omniscient, and countless others. Pages has spent the last several years making his mark in the South Florida scene with consistent shows alongside the Out Of Hand band, who, together, have created a nationwide movement coined "Hip-Hop-N-Roll," merging the worlds of Indie Hip-Hop, Alternative Rock, and Skating. Look out for more from Pages in the upcoming months, including the official music video to "Mainstream Nightmare," which was partially filmed underwater and contains heavy, cinematic visuals.

yU released the first single from The EARN titled "If U Down" The track debuted this afternoon on Al Lindstrom with an Interview discussing yU's musical progression and the business of making records. The EARN hits stores everywhere December 13th. Enjoy the song!

"If U Down" starts with the question what's going on? yU then reveals the struggle and march of life he's been living through. With a keen eye yU comments upon Uncle Sam's destructive forces, prayer, honest living, and asking people who are down if they want to get up. The musical backdrop is laid by yU's 1978er collaborator SlimKat78 who uses piano keys to pull a rainy heartstrings while the drums drive the beat forward into a fruitful blossoming of chorus "Hearts frozen, why do we be on that cold sh*t, We used to be cultured, influenced by the vultures they've been scoping, analyzing with a motive/Its.. like we've been tied up with an invisible rope and, Them jails open, they get paid when they put month in-side, kinda currupt.. Its time for us to just expose them/Its wild, especially when ur skintone's brown, but right now we boutta turn it around, U wit me? Hit me if u down.."

After garnering success with Oddisee and Diamond District, then his solo debut Before Taxes, which was named to the Best of 2010 List by HipHopDX, Al Lindstrom, About.com, Passion Weiss, and Above Ground Mag, yU sharpened his skills through performances on a European tour and appearances at CMJ, SXSW, A3C, and the Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival. Now, yU is back with his sophomore pro ject The Earn a progression that is as fluid, lyrical, and thought provoking as his critically acclaimed debut.

Artist Name: Savant aka Stanstro
 
Artist Mini-Bio: Tucson, AZ resident, by way of El Paso, TX and Chicago, IL, Gregory "Savant" Daggett has always possessed a passion for music and literary arts. Involved in general music since age 7, and a trumpet player since age 10, he wasn't officially exposed to hip hop until age 12. Although no particular emcee caught his ear right away, he was intrigued with the entire concept of an individual or a group of people speaking over instrumentation in an intensely rhythmic lyrical form, oftentimes telling semi-autobiographic tales relating to a fictionalized counterpart. He became inspired to write and partake of the art of emceeing after hearing the 1999 classic "Black on Both Sides" by Dante Smith and honed his emceeing chops at the lunch room ciphers of Chicago high schools Whitney M. Young Magnet and George Washington Carver. He has since dedicated every verse, every bar and every word to achieving the ever elusive sense of balance in this hallowed art form. Follow the flow...
