Audio: Statik Selektah & Termanology - "What the Streets Want"
2012 was a crazy year... and album, that’s how hip-hop heads worldwide will remember it. Following in the footsteps of great DJ/Producer and MC duos like Eric B. & Rakim and Gang Starr, Statik Selektah & Termanology once again combine to form the powerhouse group 1982. The formula is perfected and flawless as Statik crafts the perfect sonic landscapes for Term’s more mature and sophisticated delivery; see the uplifting first single “Shining.”
Holding Term down on the microphone side of things are great guest spots from some of the hottest new talent in the game; Mac Miller, Roc Marciano and Freddie Gibbs blend nicely with iconoclasts Bun B., Havoc of Mobb Deep and Lil Fame of M.O.P and Shawn Stockman from Boyz 2 Men. 2012 has already garnered high praise as this month’s Source Magazine has given the full length it’s coveted “Independent’s Day” column and XXL has a great review ready for it’s May 22nd issue. The duo will also hit the road in both the states and abroad, April - July for full tour support of the album. 2012 will indeed be the year of 1982.
Statik & Termanology’s 2012 LP will be released on 5-22-2012
Included is a link to “What The Streets Want,” which is a bonus track from 1982’s “2012” LP.

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?"
After introducing two album cuts, "Don't Have You" & "Lonely Roller" (ft. J.Nics), Steven A. Clark released the non-album cut "Chemistry" a couple weeks back, a spontaneous collaboration with production team Mr. Familiar. Steven added his own spin to what was originally an instrumental release for Mr. Familiar's upcoming Time Traveler EP. Steven A. Clark and The Free Lve Collective, a Miami based lifestyle brand, presents an "out of this world" interpretation of visual chemistry. "Chemistry" promo video created and edited by Free Lve.

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".

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.
