Jay Z's Life + Times Premieres French Horn Rebellion vs. Database "Poster Girl". EP out 11/6
Courtesy Girlie Action.
The French Horn Rebellion Wisconsin brothers David and Robert are gearing up for a return and will play new tracks. Their debut album had killer tracks like "Up All Night", "This Moment" and their track with Database "Beaches and Friends" is still a frequent party starter. "Orchestra Geeks Gone Wild" is band's mantra and "Next Jack Swing" ((New Jack Swing, but with heavy beats and funkier dance lines) describes genre of their second album that they're about to finish in their You Too Can Woo-studio.
Written, produced and mixed by brothers Robert and David Perlick-Molinari, The Infinite Music… is a debut album that warps the fabric of dance, electro, rock and funk and was possibly last year’s most ambitious, multi-faceted and engaging debut album. Crucially, the album also follows an intergalactic narrative that tracks the physical and emotional journey of an unknown French horn player, with a story that loops into itself - being infinite. “The album is basically the result of countless hours in the pit orchestra of operas, and thinking how fun it would be to score something like that, only with hot beats," says Robert.
The band have also remixed the likes of Sleigh Bells, MEN, Two Door Cinema Club, OMD and Alex Winston.

Mad Dukez and Fresh Kils: This Halloween... We're MONSTERS
Mad Dukez and Fresh Kils met each other at an Atherton concert. They started work on an album together, called GETTING GATBSY'D. It's bringing back the Roaring Twenties and is conceptually based on the novel. But they keep making new and better songs for it, so it's not coming out until next year. Rather than wait, they're getting their trick or treat on and dropping five tunes before heading out on tour with Blueprint. It's only five bucks, and if your pre-order it now, you get an instant download of the lead single, so go get it.

The human race is over exposed to images of violence, sex, and materialism more than ever before; a saying that has never found its way to cliché. It's a vivid illustration of the human mind, intelligent, yet ignorant. An inherent contradiction at the root of whom we all are, stemming from pains of growing up and facing our fears or possibly much deeper. The black void each of us trying to evade, and there doesn't seem to be any clear escape, just a lot of ways to numb the pain. Essentially everyone has one; it's the part of us we often try to hide. We've all faced a time where we are attracted to the thing that could destroy us. We're only human and everyone makes mistakes. In the end, if we are willing, the only thing standing in the way of reaching our dreams is thin air.
Superheroes dominate pop culture. From blockbuster summer movies to Halloween costume choices – kids and adults want to identify themselves with humans who exhibit supernatural abilities sacrificially used for the benefit of others. With his third studio album, Florida rapper/producer Brinson aims to proclaim that there are No Other Heroes. The only heroes the world will see is us as Jesus' representatives.
He emphasizes this idea through an album filled with a variety of hip hop, street anthem, and dance hits. No Other Heroes’ first single, “3D Standout,” features Stellar-nominated singer Jai (Trip Lee’s “Hero”) over a synth-driven beat. It forms the background for Brinson’s raps about his desire to live a fully rendered life visualized by God’s redemptive love for others.
The party continues with the energetically joyous “Hit the Floor” (just wait until you see the song’s video treatment) and “Not Too Far” – an 80’s pop-inspired offering featuring vocals from Rossi and NBC’s “The Voice” contestant Niki Dawson.
“Bodyguard” also resonates the album’s hero theme when Brinson and friends celebrate the safety they find in Christ. And later, storytelling dominates tracks like “Gold” and “Shoulda Told ‘Em.”
The album ends with a radio-ready mash-up of rap and worship called “I Am Yours” that is sure to be a Sunday-morning and Christian radio favorite. Finally, No Other Heroes includes the bonus track “Tebowin” - a hip hop tribute to NFL quarterback (and vocal Christ-follower) Tim Tebow that was featured on ESPN.com.

Deveraux “Sheet Music.” EP will be in stores and available for download and purchase October 30, 2012. Press Release
SEATTLE, WA October 24, 2012 /PR/ -- A new chapter in R&B music begins this month, as Seattle crooner and SMG artist Deveraux releases “1,000 Paths,” the latest single from his debut EP, “Sheet
Music.” “1,000 Paths” is set to debut during Deveraux’s Listening Party hosted at Seattle’s Lucid Lounge on November 11, 2012, with the EP hitting stores on October 30, 2012. The single will also be featured in Olympic Hopeful Norris Frederick’s documentary “Beyond the Stats;” chronicling his road to the 2016 Olympics.
The success of “1,000 Paths” is underscored by Deveraux’s numerous musical talents: being an artist on the newly revitalized SMG; holding a position as a ⅓ of the songwriting group Brill Building 94; and working alongside Anthony J. Shears; Chairman & CEO of SMG, and producer; Marcus the Magnificent, a member of Shear Genius Productions, to name a few.
“Sheet Music” is the next step in Deveraux’s musical accomplishments; following three successful singles and feature spots. His arrival at SMG in 2011 capped an incredible run as an independent artist, during which time, he co-wrote the songs “Dear Hip Hop” by Anthony J. Shears and “Go Hard” by another well-known local artist – both of which hit the Seattle charts.
In addition to his burgeoning career as a recording artist and songwriter, Deveraux also has a passion for increasing awareness of the lives of children who have incarcerated parents. He has committed himself to working alongside organizations like The Annie E. Casey Foundation, the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, and the Post-Prison Education Program to help educate the public on the drastic impact incarceration has on the children of those incarcerated..
What’s his next step you ask – a move to Los Angeles in November to continue his part in the rebirth of R&B alongside SMG’s CEO, Anthony J. Shears.
Masta Killa may not be the most high-profile member of the Wu-Tang Clan, but he's undoubtedly among the most consistent. The last original member to go solo, Killa has released two critically acclaimed albums in No Said Date and Made In Brooklyn, and has repeatedly stolen the show on recent Wu classics like Ghostface's Fishscale, Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx Pt. 2 and RZA's Man With The Iron Fists soundtrack. Now, more than six years after the release of his last studio album, Masta Killa is back with Selling My Soul, a brand new collection to be released December 11th, 2012 through Nature Sounds and Royal Lion Music.
The title Selling My Soul may imply something sinister, but it has a deeper meaning for Masta Killa. "The music for this project was more in a soulful chamber," he explains. "Anything from the inner self is a part of the soul. I put my soul into my music, and I'm in the business of selling it." Featuring production from 9th Wonder, Mathematics, PF Cuttin, and more, Selling My Soul is a cohesive collection from an artist who doesn't feel pressured to change his sound. "I would describe it as soul and substance," says MK. "Soulful music and lyrics of substance."
In addition to the new album, Masta Killa is also launching a new website, which currently has exclusive pre-orders of the album. At mastakillamusic.com, fans can now order the standard edition of the album, as well as a deluxe version. Limited to only 200 copies, the deluxe edition comes in a custom hand-numbered box with a lyric book, autographed poster, MK wool cap, and download card giving access to all three MK albums plus his live album. In addition, Masta Killa has teamed up with RAW Rolling Papers to include a handful of RAW papers and an exclusive "Ooh Baby I Like It RAW" T-shirt in each deluxe box, paying tribute to the late Ol' Dirty Bastard, who is featured on Selling My Soul. Both the standard and deluxe versions will ship from mastakillamusic.com by December 4th, one week prior to the album hitting stores.
