“Kizz Q”, formerly known as Quincy Moore released a new single titled “Stevie Wonder ” recently and has struck up a lot of buzz on popular social media platforms such as Apple Music Instagram, Spotify, Tidal etc. 

Moore was inspired to write this new track from overcoming tough times he would encounter. While developing as an artist, Moore has been exploring his identity and growing as an individual as well. He created the track through perseverance of unsupportive peers which helped the emergence  of his creative genius.

“I could hear the keys inside of my head just playing. Anytime I was going through a tough time, I kept hearing this melody and I was wondering why. From then on, every time I would feel down or discouraged I would hear it again which encouraged me to keep moving”.

Focus is one of Moore’s number one facets of his music when bringing his vision to life for new tracks. He is even meticulous on who is present when he is recording which allows his creativity to run wild.

“When I’m in the studio I don’t like 30-40 people trying to come around and party. I like to be surrounded by my producer, my cameraman and my manager. That’s all. I like to get straight forward and to the point”, Moore stressed.

His producers  are A.Swain and Lipe of NWP ,(Network Productions) , CEOs Of Network Entertainment Records distributed through Sony the Orchard.

“We see life itself as a flow. Anything we do has to flow. You have to be comfortable , laugh and remember to have fun. When you are comfortable you make good music and if you’re not comfortable, it takes away from your creativity and causes you to be distracted”.

They encourage Moore to always have full creative expression and voice.

Kizz Q summarized the track as being a motivator to move past issues hence, the reference to “Stevie Wonder” which means not being able to see them.

“Before I made the song, the message that came to mind was when things in life became issues I would think of them as being minor annoyances. I would see past them. That’s where the line ‘If its minor I don’t see it, I play them keys like Stevie Wonder’ came from. I choose to keep it moving forward and I keep elevating despite it all”.

Moore remains hungry for knowledge from his producers and inspiring artists before him to perfect his craft.

Along with his new single, Moore is picking up wind on his previous single “Pop Star” which was referred to as a feel-good party anthem. Pop Star has a music video on YouTube that has approximately 10,000 views and has been featured in national magazine sites and media platforms, his single “Grindin”which has 21,000 views & 50,000 streams on Spotify and was published on YouTube just a year ago.

Moore is a man of many talents. He is  a promoter and Radio personality for Saint Louis’ the Streetz 105.1 owned by Celebrity Dj Trumaine Barrett Epps “Dj Tab” He co -creates with DJ Flightt during  their radio show to complete production. Their show is called “THEMIXX”sponsored by The Hype Magazine and Yahoo News, and Succees Over Everything Clothing Brand.

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

Published

“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.
