MP3: Paul White - "Evasive Action"

From Nora Ritchie.

Diplo: "I'm his biggest fan."

The Guardian: "a 21st century DJ Shadow"

Fader: "conjures a hallucinatory world which owes as much to guitarists dressed as wizards and epic songs about Stonehenge as it does to turntables and microphones." (on White's previous release, The Strange Dreams of Paul White)

Sandwiched somewhere in between straight-ahead hip-hop bangers, waltzing drum machines, and ethereal electronic soundscapes lies one of UK's most promising producers; Paul White. His new upcoming hip-hop album Rapping With Paul White , a playful and exuberantly experimental smorgasboard of sounds, features a host of hip-hop heavyweights including Guilty Simpson, Homeboy Sandman, Danny Brown, Marv Won and others. Rapping With Paul White is out on August 23rd via One-Handed Music.

To drum up anticipation for his new album, One-Handed Music and Paul White are releasing the instrumental track "Evasive Action" today, an escapade of layered rhythms, guitar riffs, and a children's choir.

New Jersey Rap Group's Debut Album Is First Release Through CD Baby, Tunecore Competitor

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Money First Music Group has released, "Digital Money", the debut album from Trenton, New Jersey rap outfit, Money First. "Digital Money" is the first project to be serviced through Block Starz Digital,, the newly-formed distribution arm of German-American digital imprint Block Starz Music LLC, />
Money First, which consists of members Boom Blake, ILL Kayn, Tranzatick, and JLP, originally appeared on 2009's "East Coast Block Starz" compilation alongside rising underground stars like Wiz Khalifa, Sha Stimuli, and Red Cafe. Money First followed up their national exposure from "East Coast Block Starz" with their first official promotional release, "The Blog Goon Mixtape", whose title referred to the group's aggressive online promotional efforts in "attacking" Hip-Hop blogs.

The first song released from the 13-track "Digital Money" album, "Nothing Less", produced by Ill Kayn, was made available in April for free download and immediately struck a chord with fans who gravitated to its infectious "Gucci Louie" hook. Money First has now released the first official single and video from "Digital Money", the pop-tinged aspirational track entitled “We Soaring”.

Created as an alternative to CD Baby and Tunecore, Block Starz Digital offers promotional services from the self-described "world's most talked about independent digital label" in addition to placement on e-stores like iTunes, Amazon, and Rhapsody. "Digital Money" will be part of a soft launch for the service which is scheduled to officially launch in December 2011 with a new e-commerce website.

"Our company's ongoing mission is to provide a true link to the marketplace for independent artists at various stages of career development," says Block Starz vice-president of A&R Jonathan Hertz. "We believe Block Starz Digital is a unique service that will greatly assist business-minded artists, like Money First, affordably self-market and promote their music online."

"Digital Money" by Money First is available on iTunes.
