Joining the ranks of Bilal, Quadron, Exile, Elephant & Castle and more, Oakland-based producer Shortcircles is the newest signee to LA label Plug Research.

Inspired by Teebs, DJ Shadow, 50s jazz records, and more, the EP is a gentle, rolling wave of sounds that both soothes and galvanizes. Shortcircles describes his music as a, "peaceful sound. I try to make music that is as honest to myself as possible." The EP is an exceptionally strong release and serves as an introduction to a producer we will hear a lot from in 2012.

Press Release: Crosby - "New York Posterboy"


Press Release: Crosby - "New York Posterboy"

Courtesy Timeless Machine.

Straight up from the steaming streets of the Big Apple, a young, ambitious rapper called Crosby just released his digital album "New York Posterboy" online, available through the website http://www.NewYorkPosterboy.com. The budding artist, also known alternatively as Crosmopolitan and Clockwork Cros, was born in Bellevue to a noted multidisciplinary artist couple from the East Village.

From an early age, Crosby became a public figure; he appeared in promo breaks for MTV, fashion photographs by Steven Klein and Tom Munroe and spreads in L'Uomo Vogue, Soma and Pop; posters for the Winter X-Games; music videos by Spike Jonez, Jim Spring, Micheal Gondry and R. Kern and an album cover for Cop Shoot Cop's "Ask Questions Later". He interned at Def Jam, worked at Jeffrey Dietch Projects and for 5 years Crosby produced the multi-artist showcase Hip Hop Howl for the Howl! Festival in the East Village, while also bringing that troupe to the SXSW Festival 3 years running. Currently, Crosby directs music videos for his company Photo-POW and is also the visual artist behind all the cover art and web design for Swizz Beatz' weekly series Monster Mondays.

Crosby has built a vast reservoir of musical material in collaboration with a host of emerging local talent and is now poised to take Gotham by storm with a series of solo album releases, one per month for the next several months, of which "New York Posterboy" is the first. The record is unified by a series of sketches placed within none other than the newsroom of Murdoch's flagship and New York's most popular newpaper, the Post, as a cub reporter that reminds me of my younger self convinces his editor to allow him to break the story of Crosby's splash into the NYC music biz. Using industry beats and a wide range of sampled sounds, Crosby's aural montages express postmodern sensory overload and the funky syncopation of the life of a native New Yorker.

Songs such as "The Wait is Ova", "Born in the City" and "Museum Music" show a hip intensity and cultural savvy in his poetry and delivery. Though this is a Hip Hop mixtape, it reminds this pundit of the highly entertaining, hyperkinetic sound of one of his favorite rock records from back in the day: The Mothers of Invention's "Freak Out." His future releases promise to be even more eclectic and innovative.

"Highest Mountain" was produced by Clip Smoke, and appears on Sam Scarfo's new project The Package slated for release on April 3, 2012!

With music embedded in his bloodline, at a young age Devin Hailey knew exactly where his talent would take him. Born in Nyack, New York, the pressures of getting into the entertainment business surrounded him. Stemming from a loving family with a hard working mother and multi platinum selling father, Hailey was destined for success. With his father on the road, Hailey's mother took on the responsibility of both parents. Though she was an amazing parent, things weren't always easy. Growing up an only child, Hailey, known then solely as Devin, was forced to occupy and humor himself, thus his creativity was displayed.
