Introducing Perfeck Strangers! "Ghetto" Video Release Party, Nov. 16
Don't be a stranger!
On Wednesday, November 16th inside Toby's Famous Eatery @ 411 College St. W. in Toronto, we celebrate the release of the debut Perfeck Strangers video "Ghetto". And you're invited!
Music will be played by Stylus Award winning DJ LAW and there is NO cover! That's right it's FREE! Great music, cheap drinks, videos on the big screen and more!
Presented by EasParkPro and URBNET, this is the industry party of the month that you don't want to miss!
It's easy to say that Perfeck Strangers are an unlikely pair, but when listening to their music you would think they have been rhyming together for years.
Both accomplished rappers in their own rights, the union of Dan-e-o and Promise presents a “perfeck” melding of talent in the vein of Hip Hop's most heralded duos, such as Black Star, De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest and Little Brother.
Perfeck Strangers have even been compared to legendary tag-teams like EPMD and Das EFX for the way they effortlessly flip lines back and forth with each other.
Joining forces after years of blessing eardrums as impeccably brilliant soloists, veteran Toronto emcees Dan-e-o and Promise are now tackling the world of music as the tandem, PERFECK STRANGERS!
Yo! I'm out in Philly getting ready for a show (Haverford College, Saturday at 9, if you're in the area), and realized that It's 10PM on the 10th, so even though I wanted to officially launch on 11.11.11, What better time to launch an album about Mega Man 10?
Phoenix, AZ – After recently wrapping up a massive 44-city tour with mc chris and MC Lars,Hip Hop artist and educator Random returns to the past for a final time for another Mega Ran project, this one based on the new Capcom game Mega Man 10.
The album, Mega Ran 10, samples and interpolates tunes from the soundtrack of the top selling game and transforms them into all new Hip-Hop, rock and dance tunes. Ran is quick to point out that this is not a direct sequel to the previous titles.
“I planned on putting out a song every few months, and soon I had an album’s worth of material on my hands. I’ve been asked by fans to finish the album and release it, so finally, I agreed.”
After accomplishing the impossible with an official license and co-sign from Capcom USA, Random’s last few Mega Man based albums, “Mega Ran” (2007) and “Mega Ran 9” (2009) have landed Ran in major publications from Nintendo Power to Playstation: The Official Magazine.
The album will feature production from Random, Mustin, DN3, K-Murdock and newcomer Derrick Canton. Guest artists include Open Mike Eagle, Beefy, Phill Harmonix and more.
The sad news? This is Random’s final Mega Man tribute album. “It’s been a great run,” Ran says. “I’d never want to keep doing something to the point that it becomes expected of me. I’ll always love the Blue Bomber, and I think my catalog proves it.” He and executive producer K-Murdock will be taking their talents to the Land of the Rising Sun for a week of touring in Japan December 7 to 13. visit morebarktour.com for details.
Get the album NOW at megaranmusic.com through digital download, CD or limited edition “Blue Bomber” vinyl.
Peep video game blog Kotaku's latest blurb on the album:
I really want to know you guys thoughts, as this album took a lot of work, and revision, and retooling. Big Thanks to K-Murdock for mixing and mastering the project, our first joint venture together as RandomBeats Music/Neosonic Productions. So let me know what you think when you hear it! Thank you so much for all of your support. You are truly the greatest friends a teacher-turned rapper could ever have. Spread the word, and enjoy SKYRIM tomorrow, and play this at the same time, haha.
In anticipation of his forthcoming EP, Whatever Happened To Baby Jaymes, and following the release of his single "Heart & Soul," Oakland bred singer/songwriter Baby Jaymes is excited to release his latest single, "Bump My Head." On "Bump My Head," a combination of lush keys, pulsating horns, and a smooth bassline provide the perfect backdrop for Baby Jaymes to tell a tale of falling victim to the temptations of a pretty lady, all the while ignoring the warnings of friends.
As he continues to trail blaze his self-anointed genre of Ghetto Retro, Baby Jaymes is refusing to be put in a box, pushing the envelope and redefining what a modern day urban singer is 'supposed' to sound like. Refreshingly soulful, with "Bump My Head," Baby Jaymes gives an answer to those who wondered Whatever Happened To Baby Jaymes: he's doing just fine.
Baby Jaymes' new EP, Whatever Happened To Baby Jaymes, will be released November 15th.
