Product is made up of 6 musicians who began playing music together in Boston at Berklee School of Music. Although they met in the classroom, the group soon took their sound to the coveted Wednesday night weekly gig at the esteemed Wally's Jazz Club. The group now brings their sound to New York. The individual band members have played for Me'shell Ndegeocello, Estelle, Jessie J, Raekwon, and more. Together, they create their own musical style that blends together r&b, jazz, emerging electronic sounds, and rock. The band is heavily influenced by a wide-reaching range of artists including J Dilla, Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis, Little Dragon, Eric Dolphy, Roland Kirk, God’s Property, Radiohead and Roy Hargrove.

La Coka Nostra "Masters Of The Dark Arts" Press Release

Courtesy Matt B.

Always known for tackling controversial topic matter, the group's sophomore project, Masters Of The Dark Arts, (available now everywhere and currently #5 on iTunes Hip-Hop Chart) finds them once again in torch-bearing mode, addressing subjects that most artists shy away from as ILL BILL illustrates "as conceptually and musically dark as this album appears to be, there's also a flip side layer to it that you may not notice until you listen to it a few times. Masters Of The Dark Arts is a storm before the calm and a celebration of the good things in life that can only be achieved by walking directly into the heart of darkness and facing your inner demons head on."

While the group's roster has been trimmed slightly due to Everlast having to leave the group (for personal reasons), La Coka Nostra returns re-invigorated and fresh off of a recently completed seventeen-city European tour which saw them rock crowds in eleven different countries "I think we approached Masters Of The Dark Arts with a chip on our shoulder and really took it back to our original mission of hardcore Hip-Hop amidst all the circus bullshit that is so prevalent in the current landscape of the genre. We are aware of the perception that somehow the group has suffered a loss we can't recover from and in response we made an album that is the most conceptually focused and hardest hitting soundscape in the group's history” Slaine asserts.

@MadChild57 of Swollen Members Solo Album From Suburban Noize

Madchild of Swollen Members Solo Album From Suburban Noize

Courtesy Kerosene Media.

Madchild of Swollen Members, was on a kamikaze run with the drug oxycontin) that had pushed him to the brink of oblivion. Madchild had finally hit rock bottom. His drug addiction had spiraled out of control and destroyed everything the successful emcee had worked so hard to build with his platinum selling hip-hop group Swollen Members. The fancy cars, lavish houses and rock star luxuries were all gone, as his addiction had consumed over 3 million dollars worth of assets and finances in just over four years.

Clean from drugs for the first time in his adult life, Madchild removed himself from temptation by walking away from his previous social life and bunkering down in his home studio secluded from the outside world. For the next 10 months, Madchild feverishly wrote and recorded his first ever solo album "Dope Sick".

Not only is "Dope Sick" a story of triumph over adversity, but it has allowed Madchild to be reborn creatively. Unshackled from the chains of his past indiscretions, Madchild has confronted his darkest demons and used them as a source of inspiration to create one of the most insanely captivating hip-hop releases of 2012.

New Audio: @DoeCigapom/CagedBirds "Summertime Stroll"

New Audio: Doe Cigapom/CagedBirds "Summertime Stroll"

Courtesy Matt B.

Doe Cigapom (“Deliver On Emotions” & “Can I Get Peace Of Mind”) acronym illustrates his mission to shed light on the very real healing powers of music. Throughout his own difficult life experiences, music has been the remedy for Doe’s peace of mind.

Doe was born and raised in Washington D.C. at a time when our nation’s capital was undergoing historic struggles. This undeniably had a direct impact on his upbringing, but as Doe emphasizes “there was always music” as his main source of solace.

As it often happens for many of our most cherished artists, as a child Doe became mesmerized by the music (particularly the drums) of the church services he attended as a child with his mother, prompting him to pursue teaching music and eventually becoming one of the most preeminent timbales and conga players in the effervescent “Go Go” music scene of D.C. while still only a teenager.

After college, Doe’s interests gradually began shifting towards a more Hip-Hop related sound, which combined his rhythmic abilities with his love of poetry. Soon thereafter, he began rapping at local venues, using it as a therapeutic platform to confront the painful experiences of his past; and as Doe states “giving him a new lease of life.”

This summer, Doe Cigapom will release a collaborative EP entitled, CagedBirds, with producer Soulful via the upstart Indie Love Enterprises Company.
