PETER HADAR:::AT IT AGAIN!!!! New Release!!


Peter Hadar always seems to impress me with his consistency of releasing quality music into the universe. It's been about 4 years since I was first introduced to Peter Hadar and his music. On tour with my homie Choklate, they both stirred things up along the east coast as they epitomized and really ignited the indie grind! It was crazy! Peter's on stage delivery is just as vicious as his studio recordings. Smoothed out, ear gravitating vocals laced over some of the dopest tracks orchestrated by very dimensional concepts of sound. Eargasmic the Peter Hadar sound is, indeed. His latest project titled "Take Off Victoria" is available for FREE DOWNLOAD!!!! Treat yourself today and support this artist buy purchasing his other titles which are available for purchase and worth the investment!!! You Gon' Learn Today!!! lol

TIOMBE LOCKHART releases new EP


Some of you know of Tiombe Lockhart through her affiliation with the group Platinum Pied Pipers or the group Cubic Zirconia. I got wind of Tiombe through another songstress-Purple Saint James, who let me know that this lady was a serious matter and that I needed to check her out.. I did and fell in love with Tiombe's voice and vocal delivery right away.When I heard her first solo project with songs like Johnny Walker, G.P. and Tip Of My Tongue, I was put on a floating cloud. I was also diggin her underground duo with Bilal Oliver titled "Strange". Well this songstress has creeped back into the light with the release of her EP titled Augustus & Me- a project where she lays orignal vocals over the orginal works of August Pablo....Simply Dope!!!

The Layabouts feat. Portia Monique - Do Better (The Layabouts Vocal Mix)



For all you house lovers! There's a new project on the way. THE LAYABOUTS featuring producers Leigh Darlow and Alex Paschali have work to restore the quality, excitement and classic sound of house music in their upcoming release on Real People Music titled FUTURE RETRO VOL.1. This is a teaser of what to expect from the highly anticipated March release.

First off the album and new single is 'DO BETTER', with vocals by blazing new Seattle talent PORTIA MONIQUE. An emphatic soul-dance hustle, Monique's cultured lyrics and delivery sliding assuredly over a multi-layered bed of stirring pianos, rich, flanged keys, spine-tingling breaks and key changes, and irresistible rolling house drums.

THE LAYABOUTS-FUTURE RETRO' VOL. 1 also features new collaborations with OMAR, TONY MOMRELLE, PORTIA MONIQUE, IMAANI & SHEA SOUL.

Peven Everett's Latest Craze 2012.....


Quality as usual...I've always enjoyed this brotha's style...Peven Everett 2012 y'all!!!

Peven Everett is a musical genius in his own right. His presentation of song brings forth a meltdown,soundclash,musical affair with fusions of house, soul, jazz, and hip-hop. A native of Harvey, IL, he received a scholarship to Berklee College of Music at the age of 17. However, he ended up leaving to perform live with the likes of Betty Carter, Branford Marsalis, and Winton Marsalis. Since then, the multi-instrumentalist has played trumpet on a handful jazz recordings (including Curtis Lundy's Against All Odds) and has become a prominent figure in Chicago's house and R&B communities.
