PR: Shwayze & Cisco Adler's "Island in the Sun"

From Cat @ Big Hassle:

PR: Shwayze & Cisco Adler's "Island in the Sun"

Duo Also Set for Seedless Summer 2011 Tour with Slightly Stoopid and Rebelution
Starting July 21-August 27

LOS ANGELES, May 2011 - With two major label albums under their belt, years of touring, a MTV reality series Buzzin', and Bananabeat, the burgeoning one-stop artist collective which includes recording and TV production facilities, as well as divisions for internet and street marketing, brand alliances, tour promotion, management and booking,  Shwayze and Cisco Adler have accomplished quite a great deal since their momentous meeting just three short years ago.
On Island In The Sun, their first truly independent album, slated for release August 16th under Bananabeat Records, the duo now officially goes by the name Shwayze & Cisco Adler (abbrev. Shwayze & Cisco) to express the true nature of the collaboration.
"We've both grown as people and as artists," says Adler, who first met Aaron Smith a.k.a Shwayze when the rapper jumped on-stage during Adler's previous band's set and began freestyling. The pair immediately hit it off. "We were really just two dudes in a Malibu studio having fun and making music as a soundtrack. It all came from that."
"The core of this record was just us jamming together," says Shwayze. "The little break we took from the last record, made us each stronger in our areas. I think we're back to where we were when we started. We've been a duo since day one. Shwayze and Cisco Adler is a better representation of what it really is."
The album, produced by Adler in Bananabeat Studios, will include the title track, a breezy acoustic number, and "Butterflies," a song first previewed on the FREE The W's mixtape released earlier this year. Adler, who has recently worked with Mike Posner, G. Love, and Unwritten Law to name a few, was eager to get back into the studio with his partner in rhyme and write the next chapter in the duo's career.
Shwayze & Cisco will hit the road with Slightly Stoopid and Rebelution on the Seedless Summer Tour 2011 tour, starting July 21 in Missoula, MT., running through August 27 in Chicago, IL.
"We just want people to know that 2011 is the summer of Shwayze and Cisco," says Adler. "We've rekindled the magic between us. Without major label constraints, we're free to do things our way. Our collaboration is key. We consider ourselves a career band."

MP3: Rockwell Knuckles - "Play Catch"

From Audible Treats:

MP3: Rockwell Knuckles - "Play Catch"

Just last year Rockwell Knuckles burst onto the scene with the release of Choose Your Own Adventure, a project that garnered the budding St. Louis emcee critical both acclaim and droves of fans. Since then, as those fans eagerly awaited a follow-up project Rockwell has been hard at work in the studio – not to mention performing on stages alongside Lupe Fiasco, Pac Div, BIG K.R.I.T.,J. Cole, GZA, Yelawolf, and more – and he's emerged stocked and loaded with a plethora of forthcoming projects. First up will be Rockwell's highly anticipated full-length album, sporting the bellicose title You're Fucking Out, I'm Fucking In, an album he'll be following soon after with Take Me To Your Leader, all to be released through Mech Industries LLC.

The latest single from YFOIFI, "Play Catch," succeeds magnificently at what other rappers are often too incompetent, or just plain bad, at doing – calling out clones, endlessly chasing the looks and sounds they see around them and in the media. Produced by Ryan McNeely, the track boasts a thumping bass line, but beyond that lies a spacey anthem that sports flaring horns and chopped, hazy vocal samples. "The clones/ Who get scared to roam/ From home/ Cause home is all they've ever really known," sings Rockwell on the song's chorus, continuing, "They feel so alone/ Until they find more clones." In writing lyrics for the track, Rockwell explains, "So many people spend their entire existence under false pretenses, and it can become sickening if you are aware of it. My message was to posers: 'You're living a lie.'"

Video: The Unspeakable Chilly Gonzales Medley

What do a volcano, a werewolf, a talking bust and a shark have in common? The new Chilly Gonzales video, obviously! Only the self-proclaimed musical genius of Gonzo would be able to tie together all these amazing visuals into one story for the medley of his upcoming orchestral rap album The Unspeakable Chilly Gonzales out this Summer courtesy of Arts & Crafts. 
Accompanied by Hollywood style swells, tympani rolls, noble French horns, hypnotizing bells and influenced by Prokofiev, Morricone and Phillip Glass, this record is Chilly Gonzales’ professional confessional, revealing more of himself on these monologues than ever before. In addition to his “Gonzipiration” of the rap game, the lush arrangements found on The Unspeakable Chilly Gonzales were done by his Hollywood-film composing brother Christophe Beck, whose film credits include The Hangover, The Pink Panther and Under the Tuscan Sun, as well as his Emmy Award-winning work for the cult TV show “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”
