PR: DJ Nu-Mark Releases Second 10" in Broken Sunlight Series
DJ Nu-Mark explains the magic behind the new tracks. "On ‘Tonight,’ I remember feeling kinda bad that I told J-Live to re-write the lyrics to the song because he’s just one of those artists that you have great chemistry with. In the end he came back with a true depiction of the heart aches, money struggles and financial woes that most people face in today's economy. What goes up must come down eventually. With ‘Feel the Way About It,’ I can't help but think there's a bit of a disconnect between the Middle School and New School Hip Hop. I really wanted to incorporate upcoming MC's in the Broken Sunlight Series. Tiron & Ayomari made “Feel the Way About It” dynamic and heartfelt revealing their process of moving from one girl to the next or simply staying in the relationship.”
As a member of the critically acclaimed, gold-selling Hip-Hop outfit, Jurassic 5, DJ Nu-Mark graced the group with precision production and cutting edge stage routines. He’s also appeared on countless TV Shows with J5, including David Letterman, Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Kimmel and Craig Ferguson. After more than three years of brainstorming, experimenting and collaborating, he has finished his debut solo album Broken Sunlight, which reveals his influences and innovations into a jaw dropping collection of heartfelt music.
Broken Sunlight also mirrors the marketing behind the album. Instead of releasing all of the songs at once, Nu-Mark plans to post two songs per month for seven months. “At the end of the cycle, I’m going to release the full album with instrumentals, accapelas, and a documentary style DVD of my collaborations in the studio and on the road”.

New ScholarMan Project "The Lasting" Now Available!
ScholarMan returns with a new instrumental project, “The Lasting” that features over 20 beats ranging from hip-hop to alternative sounds. Read what he had to say about the digital album below. Link follows.
The Lasting is a collection of beats that I have created over the past year or so. Some of these beats actually had lyrics recorded to them but were never released. I have included a range of sounds on this project – everything from boom-bap hip-hop to alternative melodies. The inspiration and fuel behind the title is simply achieving a level of respect and notoriety that is lasting instead of gaining temporary, trivial attention. In a nutshell, The Lasting creates the legacy.
Block Starz Music Launches Summer Release Schedule With "The Manual Procedures"
Block Starz Music in association with Money First Music Group has released The Manual Procedures, now available on iTunes, by Trenton, New Jersey emcee Boom Blake as the lead off to the German-American digital imprint's summer schedule.
Block Starz released two street singles and music videos from The Manual Procedures, the radio-friendly "Got It On Lock" and raucous street anthem “Conquer Rap”, in the fall of 2011 and grabbed the attention of major urban outlets like All Hip Hop, World Star Hip Hop, and XXL Magazine. Boom Blake, who has shared stages and collaborated with the likes of Cassidy, J.R. Writer, Styles P, and Beanie Sigel, is now filming third music video for the 13-track album's official first single, the hard-hitting “Wilt Chamberlain”, which takes its name from the legendary Hall of Fame NBA center.
"A procedure manual is simply a step by step directional guide on how to get something done," says Boom Blake of his Block Starz Music solo debut, which will be followed by new releases by 24-year-old Sacramento, CA hip-hop artist Lady Remedy, Hispanic rap trio Block Movement, hardcore Alabama rap group Loced Out Ent., and a compilation of various indie artists from the Carolinas.
"I went through a really rough patch, going to court over charges, losing friends to either jail, the streets, and random acts of crime, lost my job and was back into the streets for a bit -- really negative things that could prevent me from doing music. Luckily, I found somethings that switched my attitude and got me focused back on track and to getting this money. So, the concept of The Manual Procedures is me explaining to others on how I bounced back, so others can do it just like I did."
Block Starz Music and Money First Music Group have scheduled an aggressive campaign for The Manual Procedures, which will include a combination of online marketing, street promotion, and local cable advertising spots on Black Entertainment Television and VH1.
