The iPad is many things, but not a.professional-grade audio system - until now. SRS Labs and Cali emcee Murs present the MyTunes Pro HD Music App, the most advanced, feature-rich, audio enhancing music player application ever developed for the iPad, also available in non-HD for the iPhone and iPod.
“When I’m done putting tracks together in the studio, my hope is that my fans get to hear them exactly the way I recorded them, but that’s not always possible,” says Murs. “MyTunes uncovers layers of audio and details that normally get buried somewhere in the mix, allowing me to hear my tracks and other music the way they were meant to be heard." MyTunes seamlessly pulls music, podcast and audio book files from your iTunes® music library, and offers innovative features like Party Mode (where the app reorganizes a selected playlist to fit your party style), Workout Mode (where the app automatically adjusts your music to fit the speed and intensity of your workout) and Speed Control (which allows you to speed or slow your podcasts with no effect on pitch and tone). HD sound, a fully adjustable 10-band EQ, listening device presets, volume normalization, Airplay and iTunes Match support, advanced drilldown search, special driving mode and DJ-style transitions are also included. MyTunes Pro HD for iPad and MyTunes Pro for iPod and iPhone apps can be downloaded FREE from the iTunes® App Store. Users will enjoy the fully functioning music player with advanced features for a limited time each day until they decide to fully unlock the app’s advanced features via a one–time in-app purchase. iPhone / iPod version - $6.99; iPad version - $9.99. To commemorate the launch of MyTunes Pro for iPhone and MyTunes Pro HD for iPad, SRS is giving people who have downloaded either version of the app a chance to win “The Ultimate Paid Dues Festival Experience,” which includes an all expenses paid trip for two to Los Angeles, CA to hang out backstage with Murs at the Paid Dues Festival, plus side-stage access to an artist performance of their choice.

It's been five months since Southpaw's release and I felt that the video which I share with you today is a befitting "end" so to speak to the entire tale that is Southpaw. This song, "Look of Love" happens to be one of my favorites off the project and I believe sums up the reason why I embarked upon it in the first place; to tell my story of heartbreak, pain, loss and eventual healing/triumph in the face of depression and confusion that stems from lost love and broken promises.
Dallas new comer, by way of Tucson, AZ, emcee/producer Dibbz Dreek of Fresh Life Curriculum has been cultivating his craft since age of 11. Early motivation to be a hip hop artist came from his uncle who was a house party DJ and had every virtually record related to the genre released in the late 80’s. The true inspiration to rap came from the first CD he ever owned, Ice Cube's "Death Certificate". Shortly after his freshman year at Tucson High School he became known for his knack to freestyle about everything from current events and to high school rumors and do so with detailed imagery. Not long after high school he teamed up with high school friends to create" The Corp", a 4 emcees- 3 producer collective. Several years later, The Corp would split into 2 factions, one of them called "Fresh Life Curriculum" who Dibbz Dreek remains aligned with. Now residing in Dallas, TX the artist has reemerged and has begun to showcase his talent and passion via his newly claimed solo stage.
"True Lies" is a trip through the mind of Dibbz Dreek as he explains odd things that he notices day to day. The song touches on everything from the Occupy Wall Street Movement to coercion in politics and religion. The jazz sample is taken from “Norman Connors - Land of Passion” and the quote at the beginning comes from none other than Huey Freeman from the Boondocks cartoon series. Guest vocals were performed by Savant aka Stanstro which gave the song that much needed sultry emotion and provided a bridge between the two 24 bar verses.
Today sees the release of West Coast producer E-Train's debut album ON SOLID GROUND. Available through all digital retailers today, ON SOLID GROUND boasts features from Talib Kweli, Wordsworth, Keith Murray, The Aztext, Akrobatik and more while displaying the raw talent E-Train exudes in the studio. Teaming up with Bay Area femcee, Holly Saucey for the smash Fiyah Burn, the combination of artist and producer with nothing to lose yet everything to gain comes shining through.
Speaking on the Dexter-esque video its main star says"When I wrote the song Fiyah Burn, I was kind of talking to myself and being an Aries (Fire) I was talking about myself. There are times when you have to laugh at yourself, and say 'I knew better'. Well this song is about that, about just backing up from the current situation (whatever it is, love, money, haters) and if you don't, do not be surprised when you get burnt. When E-train asked me to shoot the video, we had no ideas... the first thing that popped in my head was Dexter(HBO). I have no idea why, maybe it was the contrast with the real message in the song. I know if you fall for the 'trick' and wake up strapped to a table its not ideal, but your mistakes can build you or end you... So I made some adjustment to the 'Dexter' story in my head and we shot it... it was the most fun I’ve had to date shooting a video... and I may take up "serial killing" if music don't work.." Holly Saucy
