Based out of Seattle, Washington, the pairing of Vocalist AdraBoo and DJ/Producer/Emcee Action Jackson make up Fly Moon Royalty, an electro-soul duo that's drawn comparisons to artists such as Gnarls Barkley and Janelle Monáe, among others.
Preparing for their self-titled EP which is due out in the Spring of 2012, Fly Moon Royalty gives us a preview of what to expect with "Do What You Say," a far cry from your average love song. "'Do What You Say' is about, mainly, wanting someone who maybe you're dating – or close to, or admiring from afar – to physically make the move," explains AdraBoo. "But it also speaks to what happens when you step back for a minute, and how you can get more than you thought you might be able to get, all with a little bit of patience."
Underachiever, the next song in our Lost Letters series, is out today and it's free to download from our Soundcloud page. Think of it as a seasonal gift from 3 not-so-wise men.
The Lost Letters are songs that got "lost" whilst working on other projects, and none of them will be appearing on our next album. However, we like them too much for them to stay lost forever, so we decided to release them one by one. If you like what you hear, feel free to share them around.
Enjoy the holidays and we'll be back up in this with plenty of new music in 2012.
As an early Christmas Gift, Mixo of the Stereo Boyz releases his solo mixtape "Truth Be Told" for free download.
After several group releases, Mixo finally shows his talent as not only an MC but also beatsmith, with more than half of the songs produced by himself and the rest featuring beats by the likes of Sleepy Biggs (USM), Eddie Logix (Midcoast Most) and Oddisee.
"Truth Be Told" is a collection of solo songs that have been created over the past three years. It is a high energy, exciting, live, creative project. In Mixo's words: "It's everything that an album should be, but in the form of a mixtape."
The mixtape features fellow Detroit MCs Marvwon, Ketchphraze (Street Justice), Metasyons (USM), Supa Emcee, Miz Korona, Blake Eerie and the Stereo Boyz crew.
Globe-trotting New Jersey emcee Mazzi of S.O.U.L. Purpose presents the Rafael Mayoral Parracia-directed music video for "Get What I Got", produced by D-Zilla of GED. "Got" is a song from his most recent release The Inspection, also featuring Jadakiss, Vast Aire of Cannibal Ox, Homeboy Sandman and Breezly Brewin.
