Hip-hop Artist Zo0ky is Ready to Share His Music with the World 

Inspired by Tyler the Creator, Lil Ugly Mane, and MF Doom, Zo0ky is a recently started DIY hip-hop artist from Glasgow, Scotland who’s  in the industry to have fun and celebrate music. 

And although he’s ready to make himself known for his craft, Zo0ky still knows the importance of staying true and caring for oneself.  

An Outlet for His Music 

Zo0ky wasn’t always into hip-hop as he is now. 

His career started after injuring his arm while on a gig with his band where he was a drummer. Needing an outlet to unleash his creativity, he looked for other avenues until he came across hip-hop.
With this new venture, the artist from Glasgow is satisfied that he’s found something that he enjoys doing. 

“[I’m] just happy [that] I can make music again. And having people around that want to help me make it happen is all the success you could ever ask for to me. No better trophy than belief from those you respect,” he said. 

Zo0ky added that if he can position himself to have even one song that would make him known throughout Scotland, he’ll already be happy.

Ready to Release Music

“I have new stuff in the works [that] you could consider singles or an EP (extended play) but no working name yet. My goals are to keep building my fanbase and getting better at what I do for myself to prove I can do it,” Zo0ky said. 

For the DIY hip-hop artist, hard work means everything in making things happen. 

“From someone that is quite lazy usually, I’ve never put so much work into something in my life,” he said. 

Keeping Himself in Check 

Although he has been working hard on his music and gearing himself to make it accessible to more people, Zo0ky hardly forgets to make sure that he’s still mentally well to continue what he started. 

“Keeping your mental health in check and not letting it control you, if you feel like going for something just do it as the only person stopping you is you. Never go into it like it’s got to be done but rather that you want to get it done,” he said

By doing so, not only does he secure the creation of quality music, but also his well-being to continue doing what he loves to do.

“Edurk Black Pablo”: Taking over the music industry with indie label “Awol GCode Promotions”

“Awol GCode Promotions” has become one of the rising indie record labels in the music industry.

Over two decades, “Edurk Black Pablo” has paved the way for several indie rappers in the music industry. As the co- founder of Awol GCode Promotions, and original member of the rap group The Dayton Family, the Flint, Michigan born rapper’s musical journey began when he was just ten years old. “Michael Jackson inspired me to pursue music, and many others like Eric Breed, Run D.M.C., Kool G Rap, Awesome Dre, Bootleg, Gangsta Nip, Scarface & Tupac played a crucial role in encouraging me to become a rapper.”

In 1996, The Dayton Family signed a major record deal with Relativity Records. The group then dropped their debut album “FBI” in October of the same year. The album succeeded and peaked to #45 on the Billboard 200 Charts. It was the beginning of their journey to “street success”.  The Dayton Family then earned two Gold Albums, by being  on albums from Master P’s (Down South Hustler) and 36 Mafia’s (Chapter II World Domination).

 While on the road to stardom, Edurk had to serve time in prison, lost his parents a week apart from each other,  and lost his brother years later.  Edurk remembers how hard it was being in the music industry as an independent artist. He says there were times in Chicago when he and the group had been scammed by a “janky concert promoter” and also when group members “Bootleg, and Ghetto E” got kidnapped and attacked on 79th and Halsted. Edurk says” it was one of my worst memories he ever had growing up”. He also shares about how he almost “gave up on life, but decided to move on, because God has a plan”.

Since bouncing back and overcoming the trials, and tribulations of life Edurk has managed to achieve tremendous success along the way. One of his notable memories during his music journey was going on a 50 state tour with the “Insane Clown Posse”.

Currently, Edurk has released the hot new single and music video for “Tear Me Down”, that features  R & B singer T. Rell, and down south rapper Ziggy Zig-Zag.  He also has songs currently on radio air waves (ranked as high as #60 on The Top 150 Independent charts and #161 on The Top 200 Global charts) and music videos trending on video channels worldwide.

Edurk and Awol CGode Promotions are currently on an 8 city tour with Gucci Mane’s new artist “Enchanting” that started May 7th and ends in late June.

Edurk’s new single will drop July 1st, and will be produced by platinum producer “”Faided Beatz”  and he and The Dayton Family will be filming their self-proclaimed street documentary titled, “Dope Dayton Ave” this Summer/Fall (produced by “Flint City Media”).

Jake DeMichele is a LoFi Mastermind

Published

on

Earlier this year, American-bred musician Jake DeMichele announced a debut album on the way for 2022, but gave scant details about the project, leaving listeners to speculate about just what the ambient breakout artist had in store.

Fans need no longer worry, as DeMichele’s first studio album, Floating, has arrived in grand fashion.

In the hands of a lesser artist, the formal rigidity of Floating would likely become tiresome, but every one of the album’s five tracks is a testament to DeMichele’s breathtaking compositional skills. The producer builds much of the record around a theme of repetition; melodies and rhythms start off simply, and DeMichele adds layer upon layer of complexity as they progress. The album as a whole is itself a repetition of structures and forms of arrangement that shift from track to track. But, like all great songwriters, DeMichele knows how to surprise the listener — and the surprises on Floating are some of the producer’s best yet.

Take the opener, “Cloud Cover.” The song begins with sweeping, sweet syth arps the drift over a rolling drum beat as the space around them fills with harmonic textures. But as soon as this pattern is on the verge of becoming predictable, DeMichele switches gears to a lyrical, brassy melody and kinetic bassline. He then brings the song full circle by combining the two ideas into a glimmering, crystalline climax.

The songs on Floating are like expertly crafted puzzle pieces that interlock and fold into each other to form one complex, complete unit. The album as a whole fits in this analogy as well. Just as each song is a collection of parts that fold into a whole, so to is the album made of individual songs that add up to make something greater than the sum of its parts. The way the energy flows from track to track is hypnotic, and the album moves form uplifting, soaring choruses to mysterious and sombre bridges with confidence and ease. There’s a refreshing amount of dynamic variation throughout, and the melodic and harmonic movements of Floating come across like narrative.

All in all, it’s hard to say what the best thing about Floating is. Maybe it’s the funky flutes and steady shuffle of the title track, or maybe it’s the cascading keys that open up “Crisp Air.” It might be the deliciously crisp guitar tone of “Night Walk” and “Rainy Drive,” but it could also be the intertwining counterpoint of the album’s closer, “Sundown.” The sound design is beautiful, the arrangements are subtle and nuanced, and the overall effect is triumphant, even bordering on transcendent.

Suffice it to say that Floating sounds like the soundtrack to a science fiction film that we wish we could see, and DeMichele has produced one of the most entertaining albums of the year.
