Latest Single From LA Duo Shows Off Burgeoning Hipno Scene
In the star-studded town of Los Angeles, California, Supernova and Mozenraff a.k.a. Young Mozart, two young musicians bearing the same musical vision, and birthday, came together to form the group Cisum (pronounced kiss 'em) Tomorrow, and a brand new genre, hipno (hip-hop + techno) along with it. With Nova focusing primarily on songwriting and Mozart meticulously perfecting the duo's production, and now are excited to release their brand new single via Clear Label Records.
Cisum Tomorrow's "U Wanna" has all your favorite parts of both the hip-hop and the techno worlds. At the single's core you will find a booming beat, but the next layer is where techno flair shines, sporting phasers and assorted synthesizer licks to fill things out. And beyond the unique production of "U Wanna" lies a hard-hitting Wes Nyle feature as well as Supernova's super-catchy hooks and steady flowing verses, as he raps, "Make news like me and you on the Boulevard/ I got you girl, let the top down and reach for the stars," while signing-off in the final seconds of the track with the vow, "Kiss 'em tomorrow, tomorrow's music."
In honor of Yom Hashoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day), Bekay is pleased to release a moving Holocaust tribute record titled "Remember". Here's the trailer for the video that will be released next week. The record, which is produced by Dbefekt, tells a gripping story of a family torn apart during the Holocaust and the events that follow. Be sure to download and please pass this song around!
MP3: Ace Reporter - "Stick To" + Brooklyn Show This Saturday
Ace Set To Perform in Williamsburg, Releases Latest Single From Arcadia
Fresh from a jam-packed show at The Delancey, Ace Reporter is on assignment again. This time the Brooklyn singer-songwriter heads to Cameo Gallery (93 North 6th Street, Williamsburg) on Saturday, May 7th for what promises to be a raucous night of rock and electro-sizzle courtesy of Ace and his all-star band. Ace Reporter hits the stage at Cameo at 9PM and is set to serve up offerings from his threesixfive project to the ever-eager crowd. Sharing the bill with Ace are friends and collaborators, Swingset Committee, whose kinetic combo of electro and energy will serve as the perfect complement to Ace Reporter's dynamic set. Tickets for the show will be available at the door for $8.
Ace Reporter is also excited to release "Stick To," the second single from his recently released Arcadia EP. Distorted organs dance with the energy of the city in "Stick To" as Ace loses himself in a Manhattan night and imbibes in both drink and think. "It's hard to say what I do" contemplates Ace, "I make plans I should stick to." The song finds its inspiration from a friend of Ace, an everyman who finds time to write poetry at night following his 9 to 5. "It's a bit insane really," says a pensive Ace. "No one pays the bills, let alone gets rich, from writing poetry (which is too bad). It's just about the purist art I can think of, and I really admire that." Ponder along with Ace and download "Stick To" today for free.

MP3: The Freeze Tag (Cassettes Won't Listen & Bisco Smith) - "The Visions (EchoesAlike Remix)"
Hamster Kid EP Release Celebrated With Brand New Remix
Back in the summer of 2010, Los Angeles producer Cassettes Won't Listen and Brooklyn emcee Bisco Smith hit the studio together in what developed into a week-long collaboration, quickly developing into a new group, The Freeze Tag, and eventually birthing the duo's concept EP, a project that deals with battling through restrictions and limitations, in art and life. Now, nearly a year later, that EP Hamster Kid is being released, aided by the artistic efforts of world renowned street artist Bishop 203 and director Mike Vidoli, along with a handful of remixes from the EP.
And to celebrate today's EP release, The Freeze Tag are giving fans one of those remixes, this one from EchoesAlike, a frequent and long-time collaborator with Bisco, who builds his electro-inspired remix around an infectious, repeating staccato synth line. "Echoes helped produce one of my first songs I ever put out, "The Basics;" I've know him for a while, 5 or 6 years," Bisc explains on the connection. "CWL and I passed out acapellas and stems to the people we have around us – our friends – and let them go where they wanted with it. I love Echoes' remix; it's upbeat and feels like it has epic movement to it, which is what "The Visions", and Hamster Kid, is about – movement."
