PR: Marc Mac's Visioneers Album "Hipology" Is Coming Mid-June

Since the late 80s Londoner Marc Mac has been converting audiences with his sophisticated take on urban soul. Even if the London Wonder's name does not ring any bells, his music probably will. A hybrid concoction of breakbeat, nu-jazz, neo soul, drum and bass, and Hip Hop, its a polished sound plugged directly into the emotional highway of 21st century city living. Working under a variety of guises, his prodigious output includes his work as one half of 4hero, Visioneers, Natures Plan and Nu Era. In the late 90‘s Marc signed to Gilles Peterson's Talking Loud Records with 4hero. 4hero went on to produce two classic albums with Talkin Loud icluding the award winning "Two Pages" & "Creating Patterns" they then set up their own label where the critically acclaimed "Play With The Changes" was released.  Somewhere in this timeline, between producing music for Jill Scott to Roy Ayers, Phonte to Terry Callier, Marc started another project called Visioneers releasing a set of limited 7" singles getting the attention from top eclectic DJ's including Jazzy Jeff, Kenny Dope, Gilles Peterson & Norman Jay. Visioneers was then picked up by BBE records who released the debut album "Dirty Old Hip Hop".

While recording this new Visioneers record, Mac began thinking how hip-hop had been a (sometimes invisible) guiding hand in his life. "The music, the fashion and culture. Although producing all kinds of music from jungle to jazz, hip-hop (or at least what is was) has always been a part of what I do in some strange and sometimes very subtle way." Documenting this influence on, his very own digital scrapbook (that has also spawned the record of the same title), it's easy to see the depth of Mac's appreciation of hip-hop. HIPOLOGY; the album includes hand picked guest John Robinson, Notes To Self, TRAC & Baron alongside some featured musicians Luke Parkhouse, Ariya Astrobeat Arkestra & The Support Horns. The result is a real cool, funky eclectic mix of breaks, beats, soul/jazz and freaky squeaks a great follow up to the debut album.

G.Huff & Vice Souletric f/ JTronius & AC - "Tears in a Bucket"

From PR Dean:

MP3: G.Huff & Vice Souletric f/ JTronius & Alison Carney - "Tears in a Bucket"

G. Huff and Vice Souletric have quickly become two of the most respected new Hip-Hop artists to come out the Midwest. The Ohio MC/Producer duo made waves in 2011 with their debut album, Where Do We Go From Here?, which featured a who's who of talent such as Guilty Simpson, REKS, Termanology, and more. In addition, Vice will have production on upcoming albums from Scarface, Reek Da Villian and others in 2012.

As a duo G.Huff and Vice are now set to follow up with a new EP, Are We There Yet?, a carefully crafted masterpiece packed with lyricism, soul, and energy. It’s a recipe the duo knows how to cook up so well! Not only do Huff and Vice receive the co-signs of hip hop legends Pete Rock and Scarface (who grace the intro of “Tears In A Bucket”), they create their own lane with an original sound that is unique yet universal enough for all to enjoy!

"Tears In A Bucket” was created and influenced by a domestic violence incident as G.Huff explains "Tears In A Bucket” is a song that is based loosely on an event that took place not too long ago involving an acquaintance of mine. Domestic violence is a subject most artists shy away from, but I felt we could bring light to this issue in a dope way, without being preachy, and still making good music. I hand-picked male vocalist, JTronius, and female R&B singer, Alison Carney too add authentic emotion to the track. The sample Vice chose for this beat provided the perfect backdrop for the story I told. I think this song will hit home with both men and women."

Mixtape: @AkhilSesh - "SeshedUp"

From Yo! PR:

Mixtape: Akhil Sesh - "SeshedUp"

With the rise of Detroit-bred artists making their mark on the music industry, it was without a doubt that artist, songwriter and producer Akhil Sesh would get his piece of the pie. Being compared to Kanye West, you’d think that an artist would feel a sense of entitlement to live up to those expectations placed upon them, however, Akhil is taking his 808 bangers and creating a lane of his own.

With a new album on the horizon, a clothing line under his belt, and years of production on his resume, Akhil is a pure musical genius. His music reflects his diverse background and upbringing and showcases his incredible skills. He has been singing and playing piano since the age of 5, which culminated into the creation of SeshedUp Records in 2012.

"The whole concept behind 'SeshedUp' is about my journey to accomplishing my dreams and gives the listener an insight into my life -- both adversities and triumphs," said Akhil.

With his highly anticipated and explosive debut project, "SeshedUp", which is now available on and officially released on June 5, Akhil Sesh is proud to present 17 original tracks completely self-written and self-produced. The lead single, "SeshedUp", off of the mixtape is making an impact among DJs and fans alike. The mixtape is cinematic, motivational, memorable, exciting, different and passionate.

"'SeshedUp' is a movement all about finding your niche and going after your passions to the fullest of your capacity and this is what the album portrays. This project being my debut, it was important for me show the world what I'm capable of. Hence, the reason why I've meticulously made sure that the album features only myself from the production to the writing. I really wanted to show off my versatility and let the people get a genuine sense of who I am," the Detroit artist added.

Music is an outburst of the soul. Music is what feelings sound like. Music has the ability to convey what cannot be expressed and this Detroit artist is the essence of music. Creative, powerful, and dynamic are the best words to describe the sound and style of Akhil Sesh.

Below you can watch the blazing music video to the project's first single and get a taste of what this amazing and much talented musician is all about.

Adam's World Weekly 6/11 - New Column + 5 Great Albums

Welcome to the new week everyone. I'm really excited about the work I've been putting out the past few weeks, and what I have coming up in the next few weeks. My interview with LMFAO's producer, GoonRock, is a fantastic read, and it's in this week's email. I also have a great interview with soul singer Nicholas Howard, a look at five albums that are worth your time, and possibly even your hard earned money, a brand new Pop Shots that features a music video you have to see to believe, pictures from Notar's birthday party show, and a true school hip-hop Vid Pick from The Rising Sun Quest and Dirt E. Dutch. Last, but not least, I have a new addition to Adam's World - my bi-weekly NYC scene reports that I've been doing for 101Distribution for the past few months. These reports have been given their own category on the site under Columns, and you'll find the most recent one in this email.

If you dig any of these features please feel free to forward this email to a friend. I'd really appreciate it. Thanks, and enjoy!

Five Albums in Five Minutes - More Spring 2012

The year in music may have started slowly, but it’s really hitting its stride in spring. Some of the albums that have recently been released, or are about to hit stores, aren’t just good, they’re great, and they’re unique, and they’re reasons to get excited about music again. For this edition of Five Albums in Five Minutes I have albums that have that unique greatness from Amanda Mair, Kimbra, Illus, Parallels, and Molly Moore. I’m pretty sure there’s something for everyone in this mix, and if you’re like me, you’ll be digging all of them.

GoonRock - The Long Hard Road to Party Rockin

GoonRock’s production work with LMFAO has been heard literally everywhere. From the top of the charts, to ad campaigns for M&M’s, Kia, Budweiser and the NBA, songs like “Party Rock Anthem” and “Sexy and I Know It” have been in constant rotation and made LMFAO a household name.

Although life’s a party for GoonRock now, when I caught up with him he told me about his fifteen year climb to fame, how a kept promise from a friend helped him out, and why he says he had to learn how to be successful. GoonRock also discussed where the inspiration to create his Party Rock style came from, and the reaction he has every time he sees an M&M dancing to his music.

Nicholas Howard Invites You Into His Living Room

For most of people, their living room is a place of respite, where they can kick back, watch some TV, and let the concerns of the day drift away. For Queens, NY, soul singer Nicholas Howard, his living room is where he recorded his just released EP, aptly titled The Living Room Sessions.

The Living Room Sessions is a diversion for Howard, whose previous two releases are 2009's God is in the City and 2006's A Rip in the Sky. "It's a very big transition from what people are used to hearing from me," he explains...
