PR: Soulcare Music Announce Kick Rocks EP


South Dakota’s own Soulcrate Music are currently in the studio finishing up their new EP, The Kick Rocks Collection. The seven-track release will feature new material and is set for release on May 23. The first single, titled “Believe It”, features Minneapolis’ own Prof, and is available for free download here:

Building their following from scratch in their hometown of Sioux Falls, DJ Absolute and siblings Attention Def and Dirt Dee focus on creating new styles of energetic music with a high regard for soul and classic hip-hop. The trio quickly exploded, selling out 800-capacity venues as a must-see headliner. Soon focus turned to regional touring and caught the attention of Black Clover Records, who took their road show national. The past few years have been spent relentlessly touring and recording, and have given the group a boost to national success and recognition.

This hardwork has paid off, as Soulcrate was offered a spot on Rhymesayers’ Soundset Festival, also featuring acts such as Big Boi, De La Soul, and Atmosphere. The performance will be followed by a co-headlining tour with Midwest up-and-comer Prof.

Prof recently finished two tours as well as several SXSW appearances. First was a five-date run throughout Minnesota with underground hip-hop legends, Atmosphere, on the Welcome to Minnesota Tour. Following was The Lookout Tour, which brought Prof down to Austin, TX, where he performed three sets (including an official showcase with Asher Roth) at the world-renowned SXSW music festival. Prof’s highly awaited new album titled Gampo is set for release this summer.

Video: Donwill - "Shake It Easy"

For Immediate Release:

5846 Films Presents: Official Music Video For Donwill’s “Shake It Easy”

New York, NY - April 14, 2011 - 5846 Films is proud to present Tanya Morgan member Donwill’s official music video: “Shake It Easy” on Friday, April 15, 2011. “Shake It Easy” is a single off Donwill’s February 2010 release, “Don Cusack In High Fidelity.” 

The song focuses on Donwill’s failed relationship and his inability to let go. He stands in his tiny apartment, disconnected from the world. In true John Cusack fashion, Donwill obsesses over his lost love.  He questions his former lover, Laura, and remains shocked by her abrupt disappearance. 

The video has a warm look and feel, which adds a low-fi, retro vibe. The minimalist approach taken by 5846 Films creates a stunning visual, which perfectly compliments Donwill’s track. This blend is just another example of 5846 Films ability to create a superior production, which captures the essence of the artist. 

In the past, 5846 Films has produced several music video mash-ups, which match popular songs with rare and old movie footage. Previous mash-up from 5846 include: Kanye West's "All Of The Lights" and Drake's "Lust For Life x Houstonatlantavegas", which was featured on Drake's OVO blog. The production company also produced a music video for, underground production duo Night Creatures single, “Pound For Pound", which features Mandeep Sethi.

5846 Films is a production house that specializes in short films, music videos, live music performance footage, artist EPK's and behind the scenes montage. The production house also focuses on viral mash-up videos with a cinematic twist and a modern edge. All footage is shot exclusively in HD.  Full editing and DVD authoring services are also available.
