Artist: Fdot1 Title: 'So Grimey EP' Label: fM Inc. (independent) Style: Grime, Hip Hop, R&B and Bashment
Born in Barbados and raised in NY, Toronto, Manchester (UK) and Harare (Zimbabwe) Fdot1 (or Flo as he is known to most) brings a melting pot of international experiences to his music. Now based in London, Fdot1's style is influenced both musically and lyrically by his global upbringing. You will hear a mix of American, West Indian and UK accents in his flows and a fusion of Jamaican bashment, Bajan calypso and Zimbabwean rhumba on top of a foundation which is firmly rooted in Hip Hop. Fdot1's style is truly unique. Since returning to the UK Fdot1 has been the catalyst behind a number of the UK and Jamaica's most prominent artists. Fdot1 has produced tracks for Tony Rebel, Queen Ifrica, Sizzla, Fredi Kruga, Asher D (So Solid), Malarchi, Giggs and produced over 40 tracks for Durrty Goodz.
Fdot1 now comes out of the studio and into the spotlight with the release of his EP "So Grimey". The EP features 4 tracks all of varying musical 'flavas', displaying his versatility as an rapper, lyricist, singer, songwriter and producer. "So Grimey" is Grime/UK Hip Hop, "Put it On Ya" a more soulful R&B feel, "Gal Ah Bawl" Bashment, and "Fyaah..!!!" is a throwback to the traditional boom bap days of Hip Hop. Fdot1 has appeared on Ras Kwame's 1Xtra show, winning his Home Grown talent competition and been a regular on DJ 279's Friday Night Flava on Choice FM. Fdot1 has performed with Ms Dynamite, Hip Hop icons De La Soul, Immortal Technique, Omarion, Lil Wayne and Malarchi. Fdot1 was previously known as Floriginul and you can find his first studio album "Part of Me" on iTunes. Fdot1's next studio album "Money MusicK", a fusion of Hip Hop, Grime, Bashment and soulful R&B, is out 4th May 2011.
"this album came about out of frustration with the current state of the industry. Being in the studio and being given so many demos that all sounded the same, no depth, whether it be a singer or a rapper, in my opinion, it was the same song just by a different person. The lyrical content either glorified violence, cash, cars and jewellery or sang about broken hearts like there is nothing else to talk about. I just stopped listening to music. Instead of complaining about it I decided to challenge myself creatively to show there are still artists out there who are creative and not just a machine marching to a major label's drum. Money MusicK is an album full of good music and good vibes proving that you can make money without selling your soul. Fdot1
"So Grimey" is the first single from the forthcoming "Money MusicK" album. A sampler of the album can be listened to at Fdot1.com

PR: Helecia Teams w/ Spider Loc For a Joint Effort
Fresh on the heels of her controversial page-turner, The Diary of Helecia Choyce: The Hustle Within Part I, released in the fall of 2010, the Los Angeles, California, rapper-turned author, Helecia "S.uper K.razed G.oddess" Choyce, has recently returned to her Hip-Hop roots, teaming up with G-Unit signee, Spider Loc, for the upcoming arrival of their highly anticipated, joint street-tape offering, the DJ Lazy K hosted, Filthy Clean. The fourteen track outing will be "officially" unveiled on Saturday, March 26th, on www.skgflava.com, as well as other major mix-tape websites.
Having originally gotten her professional start at the tender age of thirteen, it was actually infamous, then, Death Row Records' CEO, Marion "Suge" Knight, who initially gave the young upstart her first big break in showbiz. S.K.G. later went onto appear alongside the legendary Tupac Shakur on his second posthumous collection, the multi-platinum Until The End Of Time, before finally being granted her release from the troubled imprint in '04.
The Diary of Helecia Choyce: The Hustle Within Part I, which is still available online and at select retail outlets, documents both her personal and professional journey, revealing her true testimonies of a rough and tumble upbringing; including, surviving childhood with a drug addicted, mentally ill mother and incarcerated father, physical abuse, living within a violent gang environment, single motherhood, among many other trials and tribulations. Choyce, a doting mother of four, has designated 10% of all proceeds from the tome to be donated to non-profit cancer organizations, specializing in helping children with leukemia and providing further research towards a cure for the fatal disease.
Filthy Clean will be followed by four additional mix-tape projects, ultimately leading up to the subsequent mid-to-late 2011 release of her anxiously awaited, still untitled Hustlegurl Entertainment/Universal Music solo debut. S.K.G. is also working on a stage version of The Diary of Helecia Choyce: The Hustle Within Part I, as well as a second volume of her still in-demand premiere literary body of work.
Filthy Clean will be available for free download March 26th.
