TimingIsEverything-TheMusicSpotInterview

Having already endorsed his new album “Timing is Everything” in an earlier review, the UK’s online magazine The Music Spot sat down with Detroit MC Kid Vishis to get a better understanding of the man behind the music.

They discussed the origins of his stage name, how he first started recording and which hip hop artists had the most profound influence in the way he developed his own style. Kid Vishis then explains the turning point in his career which ultimately led him to record the debut album, and outlines the writing process and the concepts behind the tracks.

The interview then ends with a focus on the future, both in terms of the immediate year ahead with international tours and further releases, and his aims longer term.

The feature focuses mainly on the new release, while providing some background : “Being the younger sibling of an already established musical force can often be of detriment to your success…however, when it comes to Detroit-style rap, with all its grit, Kid Vishis isn’t finding it difficult to escape from Royce da 5’9”.

RighteousFury-Musiceyz

Long Beach rapper Matt Maddox, currently based in Kansas in America’s mid west, releases his second solo album Righteous Fury on 25th February, four years after his solo debut “Asylum Artistry”

Been some time in the making, however he’s been on the heavy grind recently, releasing two official videos and a single in quick succession and putting together a live performance schedule for the year including an appearance at SXSW, a tour with Slaughterhouse and dates in the UK, Europe and Australia.

The ex Guerilla War Tactix member is recognized for his trademark raw & raucous delivery style, a verbal onslaught of wordplay and lyricism while working with a range of quality international producers. UK online multi genre magazine Musiceyz took a listen through Righteous Fury and found it to represent the key hip hop musical elements to the max.

Read what they had to say HERE

The album which releases via Red Phone Records & Seven 13 Music includes features by Tragedy Khadafi, Reef The Lost Cauze, King Magnetic, the UK’s Edd Bundy, Swann and cuts throughout by DJ TMB, while production comes courtesy of The Snowgoons’ Sicknature, Skammadix, Jedi Mind Tricks’ C Lance, Vanderslice, Nemesis, Hellzwind, Engineer and Sultan Mir. Although 19 tracks long, it still comes in at under an hour in running time – a no nonsense, good ol’ fashioned hip hop banger from start to finish

The international iTunes pre order link is http://georiot.co/3ILt and expect to read much more about the release in the weeks ahead. Meantime, check out his single “Street Art” featuring Tragedy Khadafi, produced by Skammadix with cuts from DJ TMB

All press, magazine and media enquiries, including requests for promo copies of the album for review or artist interviews can be addressed to UrbanElite PR HERE

MagnaCarta-HitTheFloorMag

Latest in what has been a long line of UK and international media coverage secured by UrbanElite PR for London’s Melanin 9 and his debut album “Magna Carta” which released on 3rd December 2012.

This time Sean Cloherty gives it his full seal of approval on behalf of British multi genre online magazine Hit The Floor.

Don’t mistake M9 for another rapper who ignorantly spits about drugs and guns either, the talent he has with words is extremely impressive. He paints a picture in the mind’s eye; there is a lot of wordplay revolving around meaningful subjects” again follows in the same vein of many previous journalists’ analysis of what has been a landmark release for the artist, his first official album since releasing mixtapes 144,000, High Fidelity and the Orion’s Stencil EP.

Similarly, comparisons in lyrical approach to Nas, Mobb Deep, Wu Tang & Biggie have been a common theme in many of the reviews and interviews, and this one is no different, summarizing :

Magna Carta is embedded with hyper-visual lyricism, dark soundscapes, gritty narratives, and hard beats, and really gives the impression that Melanin 9 is out to spread knowledge.

Available now on iTunes, and also in CD format by mail order via http://m9ether.bandcamp.com We understand that due to the large number of orders placed via his Bandcamp, there had been a slight backlog in shipping, however this has now been resolved and turnaround is expected to be only a few days.
