Salutations party people! Been too long since I updated you all, so here I am at the month's end with a LOT to update y'all on and of course to share with your chosen few, who graciously signed up to my mailing list, my monthly FREE download...
So, first off and this is BIG as in MEGA as in Mega Ran who I'll be performing with at two big gaming-music events next month- Bit Gen 8 in Baltimore and the grand daddy of them ALL bka PAX PRIME in one of my fave cities to rock- Seattle! We will have lots of merch to sale and new music to perform, so make sure you come out and support (if you can). And speaking of support...
...As myself and Raw Poetic, collectively known as Panacea, start work on our 6th studio album for release (hopefully) this winter, we are celebrating 10 YEARS as a group this Fall, and got my man Jay Roeder to design these dope limited-edition tees that feature our first album's title! These tees went on pre-order last month and I only have a few of the first exclusive pressing left... so grab one ASAP, they'll be shipping next month via my new tee pressing partner, the artist, Jay himself ;) Click the image or button below to get yours! Also, I am almost out of the original CD pressings of Thinking Back, Looking Forward so make sure you grab some Panacean history too- as once they are gone- they are GONE!
So, now to the FREE ish ;) This instrumental is a flip I did recently of the SNES classic The Legend Of Zelda: A Link T o The Past; It was intended for myself & Ran's Forever Famicom DLC 3 which will be the FINAL installment of our Forever Famicom series... maybe?!? BUT the beat didn't make the cut, albeit I love the way it came out so I wanted to share it with you all exclusively! Click the button below to download and shoot me an email reply, facebook comment or twitter mention telling me what you thought, thank you kindly & enjoy!
The project has been in the works since early 2013, with the official release currently pencilled in for the late summer. Nova Scotian-born Shane Russell of 9Block Productions, a regular collaborator with Cee on many of his projects this year, linked up with the boys to shoot (along with Richard Bastarache), direct and edit the video for the debut single from the EP, 'When The Chips Are Down'.
Video: Mr. Live x Drama Class "Flipped + Un'ed You"
As a follow up from the previous weeks 'Flipped + Un'ed You' release, the BK based emcee, Mr. Live is giving the tune a fresh set of visuals, which highlights the humorous side of his personality, as he and some members of Drama Class Recordings seize control of a New York train carriage, and bring this Dotmatic produced banger to life, this is only a short sneak peak of what to expect from the forthcoming 'Conflicted EP' which is due for release sometime this September.
Greenhouse (Blueprint and Illogic) Premieres New Video

In the video, which chooses symbolism over performance in the visuals, Blueprint and Illogic appear as salesmen carrying lugging their wares around in big briefcases. “Willing To Bleed” compliments the album’s underlying theme of artists who struggle with the balance of real world responsibilities with the seemingly glamorous world of an hip hop entertainer. Speaking on the suitcases in the video concept, Greenhouse states, “it represents the past experiences and burden that each artist carries with them. You’ll see in the video how the characters have no choice but to bring this baggage with them wherever they go and any time they try to distance themselves from it, it inevitably returns to them.”
Reborn as Romelo X, the up & coming artist presents his debut project "Gemini Season". This new mixtape features from fellow Monstar crew members Marly & Chuck Paradise as well as Don Loso. The production being provided by Kajmir Royale, TrendSetterz, FlyLife, Blitz Beatz, Superstar O & many more! Special thanks to Roscoe Wiki for mixing & mastering this project! Stay tuned for much more from Romelo X.
