MP3: Fly Moon Royalty - "The Birthday Song"

Earlier this month, Fly Moon Royalty announced their new EP, Dimensions. The EP, which will be released as a free download on May 22nd, is a thank you to fans that supported Fly Moon's self-titled debut, and following the recent release of lead single "My Heart Keeps Pumping," AdraBoo and Action Jackson are excited to give fans a brand new track today, "The Birthday Song."

Despite a potentially deceiving title, "The Birthday Song," says Fly Moon Royalty, isn't meant to be taken on face value. "This song isn't your average Happy Birthday song," explains AdraBoo. Inspired by a close friend, the song is instead about how being around a close friend or loved one can brighten even the darkest days. For his part, Action Jackson delivers a bright, bouncy instrumental, complete with keys, bells, and chimes, as Adra sings on the song's hook, "You make everyday feel just like it's a birthday/ Can I share 365 more with you?"

Press Release: Jeury San Releases "San Back"

Recording artist Jeury San has been in the studio 24-7 lately creating musical goodness. Whilst finishing up his work with producer Villain, the lyricist decided to drop this new song.  Jeury San wanted to comeback with a heavy hip-hop flow over a gritty beat, a step in a different direcion from all of his latest releases which have had a more mainstream sound; he wants to show everyone that he can still flow with the best of them & that J. San never left!  This track is a taste of what's to come from his upcoming mixtape "Barely Human" which is a compilation of freestyles on beats from your favorite radio hits and even a few originals such as "San Back".

PR: Check Out What DJ Spade 1 Got Goin' On

WHO IS DJ SPADE 1
       
Since the age of 10, djSpade1 has learned every aspect of music. In middle school he learned to play the saxophone, and while in high school he learned how to motivate crowds with a pair of 1200’s and a microphone. Growing up in a military family, Spade1 started his career as a DJ in various project basements in Berlin, Germany.

In 1992, he returned to the United States, and he enrolled in Virginia State University where he immediately immersed himself into the local music scene. While in college he swept the area nightclubs, house parties, and took over college scenes throughout the Mid-Atlantic. Performing alongside names such as Biz Markie, DJ Flexx, Ron G, DJ Kool and DJ SNS, Spade1 proved that he could rock just as hard as any big named DJ. Soon after, producing music became inevitable as he worked with many unsigned artists on mix-tapes while working to form his own independent label.

Spade1 has been creating his own brand and sound for the past 20 years and continues to expand his scope. Recently he has started to branch into video, commercials, movies, and video games. He’s currently working on several music and film projects including his self produced solo album, Uncle Spade: Life of a DJ.

Sir Tomz aka Shadowless Tomz went on to remix Roots Manuva's 'Bashment Boogie' for the Big Dada Records label compilation 'Extra Yard' which was mixed by DJ Excalibah, as well as the track 'Sky Fall' by Shadowless featuring on Tim Westwood's well respected CD compilation album 'UK Hip-Hop 2002 Vol.1'.

More recently Tomz has been back on his grind and making waves here in the UK and in the USA. Sir Tomz decided to remix five of the tracks from the album over industry beats and then dropped two music videos for them both having over 4000 hits on You Tube. The US unofficial remixes have been used on mixtapes from DJ Ames and Tricksta from UK Runnings, as well as featuring on the US released mixtape from DJ 5X & Coast2Coast Mixtapes entitled 'International Speaker Box 2' which was also hosted by Sir Tomz. He recently got commissioned to do a remix for Chicago label Knowledge Giving Birth (KGB) as well producing a ten track street album for MKD from Royalists. With a new energy and a new focus, Sir Tomz is bringing us back to reality. Bubblegum free, Sir Tomz is conscious Hip-Hop with a message and an artist with staying power.

His latest release 'Lockdown' drops as a collaboration project between his own imprint Jailhouse Records and UK Runnings Mixtapes. Mixed & hosted by one of the UK's leading mixtape deejay's Tricksta, who has released official mixes with the likes of French Montana, D-Block, Red Café, Papoose, The Jacka, Stat Quo, Chamillionaire, DJ Paul from Three Six Mafia and UK acts such as Iron Braydz, Skriblah from Terra Firma, M9, Big Cakes, Big Narstie and many more, this is an essential release for the UK Hip-Hop community. Featuring the production & the song writing talents of Sir Tomz, 'Lockdown' also features guest appearances from Nih'illi, Cyrus, Blackitude and Juice Aleem from New Flesh For Old.
