Gettin' Gatsby Rises to the #2 Spot on the CMJ Charts!
Mad Dukez and Fresh Kils' "Gettin' Gatsby" tour is heating up on the west coast, and so is the album on radio charts! In five short weeks, Gettin' Gatsby, the concept album which combines the smooth mic skills of Buffalo-born rapper Mad Dukez as well as banging beats from Toronto producer Fresh Kils is flying high at the #2 spot on the CMJ Charts!
This debut album is a return to the glory days of the roaring twenties, where style, decadence, and corruption was king. It brings in smooth, modern lyrical wordplay, and blends in soulful and clever background beats, which includes the #1 single "Bootleg Bartenders." Be sure to also watch out for "Sookie Sookie," with the music visual to be released soon.
Gettin' Gatsby is available now at Deep Thinka Records/DTR45 in digital, CD and 12" vinyl formats, and finds this unique pairing at their very best: smooth, energetic flows eloquently tap dancing over completely original golden era hip hop inspired beats. Find it on iTunes, Amazon, or any of your finer outlets, and be sure to catch Mad Dukez and Fresh Kils live on tour in a town near you.

New Alliance is an Independent Hip Hop Group from Tallahassee, FL consisting of Chris Fiore and John Rains. However, New Alliance is more than the individual artist on a song; rather, a family of the artists, producers, designers, businessman, promoters, etc. that are responsible for getting the music in your hands. We are heavily involved in all aspects of the creativity behind our projects, from video shoots to marketing plans, because we value the importance of involving ourselves in the entire creative process. Otherwise, how would we call ourselves artists? Our goal is to create a movement among independent artists, music and non-music related, pushing for a resurgence in the value of hard work and originality within our culture.
