Hot combo of master storytelling and mixed genres on EMG’s new EP “Growing Pains”


LOS ANGELES, CA - Evan Michael Green (also known as EMG) treats listeners to superb music and highly crafted stories at the same time. His new EP, “Growing Pains” is the loosely autobiographical personal journey of a man trying to evolve into a better musician, a better artist and a better person. When this east coast songwriter headed out to LA two and a half years ago, he wanted to document his relocation adventures as they were happening. On “Growing Pains,” Evan delivers a mix of three genres he loves most: R&B, Pop and Hip Hop. Every song has a certain feel to it which puts you in that world for a short time, then immediately takes you out on the next track. Evan tries not to stay in any one genre for too long which expertly drives the flow of music and story. As a storyteller, Evan developed a character based upon himself to take us through some challenges of settling in a new place. “New Identity,” actually released a year ago, was incorporated into this project because it works so well as an introduction to the narrative.

The story progresses with troublesome relationships in “Bad Girls,” and leads to the realization that relationship problems have been brought on by himself. Guys often chase after what they’ve been warned against. Evan said “I feel like we try and address our problems and sometimes we end up right back where we started.” After discovering that pursuing “Bad Girls” doesn’t give him what he really wants, the solution comes out in the track, “Good Chick,” where he paints an image of the woman he truly desires. A perfect extension of his storytelling, Evan’s YouTube channel has millions of views. His tremendous success comes from making highly creative videos with convincing characters (which Evan enjoys playing). His powerful performance as a manipulative smooth talker in “Nice Voice,” for example, got the reaction he was aiming for. He always wanted to be a visual artist and feels that video gives a song new life.

More quality videos followed for the new EP including “Bad Girls” and “Good Chick,” which picks up where the previous video left off. Evan grew up in a household surrounded by creativity and music which naturally led him to become a creative teen and expand his ideas in adulthood. After attending Berklee College of Music for Music Business and Marketing, Evan later made the decision to live in his car for six months while saving to relocate to LA to pursue his music career. “It was a roll of the dice but it paid off for me,” he said. His other passion of building people and companies led him to start his independently operated label and production company, Ten Sixty Seven. While maintaining creative control of all aspects of his music and having the freedom to be self-sufficient are advantages to running the company, the time involved and large learning curve meant that he was only able to put out two songs in 2018. With processes now in place, Evan has time to do more of what he loves.

He took a year and a half to train his voice for his crowning achievement, a track first written in 2017 called “No Ceiling.” Evan has learned to master and disguise his voice which is evident on “Growing Pains.” He changes his voice on nearly every song depending on the desired vibe. Dedication and a lot of hard work have gone into creating the new EP, and it shows. “Definitely grinding on this EP for a good amount of time,” said Evan, “just to get everything right!”

Real, raw uncut performer King Rawzky creates laid back melody ‘Since You’ve Been Gone’ 

                        LISTEN TO THE PODCAST BELOW!

PORTLAND, OR – If there’s one thing you should know about R&B singer Antonio Blue (AKA King Rawzky), he’s raw, he’s real, and he’s uncut. There are no pulling punches with his music. But he’s also not the kind of artist who goes out of his way to tear someone apart or take things to a negative place. In fact, he’s just the opposite – he’s a musician who uses his art to bring light and life to the world. He just does it with complete, unfiltered honesty.

He puts that music on full display with his EP “Life’s Metamorphosis,” which is currently available across all streaming platforms. It features five songs of a diverse nature – there are summer songs, pop songs and even a soul song on there. The debut single from that EP is “Whatever You Want.”

He has also dropped a new single called “Since You’ve Been Gone,” which features a laid-back, melodic vibe with King Rawzky playing piano throughout and vocals that are reminiscent of pop
legend Michael Jackson. Inspired by a previous woman he’d been involved with, the song tells the story of a man who still cares for a woman even after they’ve parted ways.

“I basically wrote a song to let her know how much I did care about her,” he said. “I write a lot about trust and love when it comes to my music. I’ve had relationships that fell apart because most of them never could contribute to my dream of music, or they never understood that I’m married to my music and my company. I’m passionate about being an advocate to the world. I got tired of giving myself to women who weren’t worthy. I need a person with the same spirit and who can understand what I’m trying to accomplish. But even after all that hate and betrayal, I never lost my love for the ladies. There is so much they have done for me over the years, and I know that a lot of where I am today is because of them. There are not a lot of people going through the world with this kind of positive energy. As a result, I feel like I’m invincible.”

Born and raised in the streets of Portland, Oregon, King Rawzky quickly learned how to adapt and survive through the trenches of a hard knock life. From an early age, he developed natural singing abilities and an affinity for music. He picked up instruments easily and was fascinated by music theory. Over the years, he has developed a unique genre that he calls “rhythm and pleasure.” He said it touches on his raw lyrical poetry which often is in-your-face but also paired with “bedroom melodies.”

Even with his natural gifts in music, King Rawzky considers himself an underdog. He credits his father who was himself a professional musician, for helping give him the encouragement he needed to keep pursuing his dream. But the road to success was not an easy one. King Rawzky had to overcome homelessness and battles with record companies that enticed him to sign bad music contracts. Depression took a hold on his life through much of that turmoil but he never let it derail his dreams. His passion for music drove him to succeed, and he eventually worked enough to pay for his way to university where he studies music education.

Today, he’s passionate about helping others. He not only works to help homeless people in his community but also rescues animals and works with organizations throughout the region that care for animals. He also helps other young musicians realize their dreams and uses his company to help young artists. He also uses some of the profits from his company to give back to the community – specifically helping the homeless in the area with food and clothes.

Soulful R&B artist DaMarcus Wilkins drops hot new club track ‘She Knows My Weakness’

                 LISTEN TO THE PODCAST BELOW!!

ORLANDO, FL – It’s been quite a journey for Orlando-based artist DaMarcus Wilkins. In the early 2000s, he was a young artist making a name for himself under the moniker D’Ville. He was signed to a record label, had created some modest hits and was even opening for people like Jagged Edge, Carl Thomas, The Game, Lloyd and 50 Cent. But when his manager passed away unexpectedly and the industry started to become a burden, DaMarcus decided to take a step back from being a front man and instead focused his time and energy on learning everything there is to know about the production side of the recording process.

In the years since, DaMarcus has developed a unique sound and style that is truly original. He has become a master at making beats and his vocals have evolved from the bar-spitting rapper of his youth to the silky smooth R&B artist of today. His most recent single, “She Knows My Weakness,” is the perfect example of the maturity now found in his music. Fusing elements of R&B, Dance, Reggae and Latin Vibes, the song examines the many ways that women can knock men off their game.

“It’s a sexy club song about how sometimes a man’s weakness is women,” DaMarcus said. “Like
if you’re out at the club and you see a lady dancing and the way she dances really catches your
attention and you really dig the way she looks, next thing you know it’s all you can think about.
It’s basically going off that vibe in a way that any guy will be able to relate to.”

Born and raised in Danville, Illinois, DaMarcus originally got his start in music by singing in his
family’s church choir. He soon learned that his gift was broader than simply knowing how to
sing, and he quickly learned how to play pretty much any instrument he picked up. He learned
guitar and saxophone just by playing it by ear, and other instruments fell in line after that. That
love for music eventually led him to pen his own lyrics, and the rest is history. As he has
developed his unique sound and style over the past few years, the artist he keeps coming back
to for inspiration is the R&B singer Tank. In similar ways to that artist, DaMarcus said he brings
soulfulness to his R&B that lends an extra layer of connection with an audience.

“At the end of the day, I just want my music to be known for being real genuine, heartfelt

music,” he said. “You can dance to it sometimes. Or sometimes it’s just a groove. You know, I
want to be the artist who keeps you engaged while you’re driving down the street, or the artist
you throw on because you just need to hear that special song. I want to move people from ages
18 all the way up to 60s. Anybody could hear my music and like it – Black, White, Chinese,
Spanish … everybody.”

Lebanese music producers drop and make an 'IMPACT' in the music scene on world stage with new album ‘IMPACT'

                   LISTEN TO THE PODCAST BELOW

BEIRUT, LEBANON – A new duo from the Middle East is bringing an intriguingly dark new sound to the world stage of music with an exploration of multiple genres fused into one. Dark Note – made up of friends Saiid Zeidan and Anthony Nemnoum from Beirut, Lebanon – represents cutting edge music with sounds that range from EDM, Trap/ Future Bass, Techno, Hip Hop, Pop or even Rock. Dark Note - named after their discovery of finding light in the dark - takes inspiration from ideas that seemingly pop up out of nowhere during times of introspection.

“When you’re in the dark and hear a cool voice in your head and you start thinking about how you could make that into a song, that’s what Dark Note represents,” Zeidan said. “There is no one who can make the same music we are making. We can do EDM,Trap/ Future Bass, Techno, Hip Hop, Pop or even Rock … all genres you might think of.  And when we bring that to a crowd, the crowd will go crazy and dance like never before. We will be known for our massive raves.  We won’t stop until we’ve reached the biggest stages of TomorrowLand, UMF, EDC, Ibiza and many more.”

Their journeys in music started separately. Zeidan started DJ-ing when he was 16 and was discovering his path in music production, while Nemnoum started exploring production and instruments at age 15. They eventually came together while studying mixing and mastering at a music academy in Beirut. They clicked almost immediately and discovered that the sounds and styles they were independently interested in sounded even better when brought together. The fusion of their two styles grew into a one-of-a-kind sound unlike anything in Lebanon … or anywhere else in the world! 

After six months of hard work in the studio and sampling new music to live crowds during DJ sessions, Dark Note is ready to release their sound to the world through their new album “IMPACT.” According to Nemnoum, it’s a project that shows you a sneak peak of their skill through a diverse range of sounds – with one Pop song, a lot of Trap, and some heavy EDM along the way.

“It’s our first album and with it, we want to make a big impact,” Nemnoum said. “We have four tracks right off the bat that we think might make a hit.”

Those four tracks include “Demise” – an EDM/Trap fusion about breaking into someone’s dreams; “IMPACT” – another Trap song that is tailor-made for making a big impact on the club scene, like a “meteoroid striking land” ; “Star Crossed Lovers” – a slower-paced love song that touches on religion and traditions underneath a catchy hook that listeners will have a hard time shaking out of their heads; and “Trust In Me” – a commercial-ready  Radio/DJ friendly Pop song hit that will make you  dance and shake that ass. 

The album is out now and distributed under EDM REKORDS LTD. They aim to provide the best music experience possible, shaking the ground by using their marvelous 808 drums and original sound designs. They currently have three other artists on the label and are excited for what the future might hold for them on the international stage.

     Allocai uses deep pain to fuel new music in single ‘Cloud9

                   LISTEN TO THE PODCAST BELOW!

LOS ANGELES, CA – Allocai is a 21-year-old LA-based pop recording artist whose unique sound and style brings a breath of fresh air to the music industry. He’s not a one-trick pony when it comes to art but rather a well-rounded artist who pushes boundaries of stereotypical genres. A broad vocal range and versatile dance routines enables him to fully captivate an audience in his live performances, inevitably leaving them to reminisce their experience for years.

Born in Jamaica, this young performer grew up experimenting with his curiosity for music and used it as a form of self expression to gain freedom from an adverse life that was constantly being molded by his draconian father. Perhaps the lowest point in his life came about five years ago when his father got romantically involved with his girlfriend, kicked him out of the house, wrote him off from their family company, got his girlfriend pregnant and later on got married to her!

“A few months passed after that when I barely hung on to my sanity,” he said. “My depression got worse and worse, especially with the added pressure of being a medical student. It almost drove me to suicide. At my lowest point, my grandmother, whom I was living with at the time, encouraged me to go back to my roots and find a way to express my emotions that I’d been keeping to myself. Her words led me to rediscover my voice and talent, and to find a deeper purpose for it all. I used music as a form of emotional therapy and to express feelings that I couldn’t get out even in conversations with a therapist.”

After months of training and developing his craft, Allocai decided to drop out of medical school and venture to LA to pursue a career in the arts. He found a freedom of expression that he never knew before, and soon tapped into a side of his sexuality that he had kept hidden for many years. He started openly having romantic relationships with men until it eventually led him to find love in the eyes of another man. That combination of newfound joy and freedom of expression found its way into his music, and he hasn’t looked back since.

In the years since, he has partnered with a record label, Tree4ort Records, and has put together his first album, “Cruelty.” That album is already highly anticipated along the West Coast and will display his ability to interweave different genres to create original sounds that are rooted in pop, but incorporate a variety of other influences.

Most recently, Allocai has released his new single, “Cloud9,” which is the first track to be released from "Cruelty". A music video for the single is slated to drop in August. The album will tell the story of the ordeal with his father while creating vibes that he hopes will help audiences emote with him.

“It’s a way of experiencing emotions rather than listening to words,” he said. “Each song represents a particular emotion I experienced on my road to recovery. ‘Cloud9’ is a song that represents one of my lowest points and the drug abuse that came with it. It’s a chill, vibey type of feel, and it shows off the kind of music I want to make – anything that can give you a different flavor. My base genre will always be pop but I want to fuse that with things like reggae or hip hop or rock – just anything that will give it a different feel. The ultimate end game is to create music that stays true to a unique artistic sound and is still able to appeal to a contemporary audience. I love dancing as much as I love singing so a lot of dance jams are coming up on this album.”

Allocai said that he’s working hard to release the album before the end of the year.

West Coast artist inspires others to ‘Rank Up’ with new music

                                          LISTEN TO THE PODCAST BELOW

Regardless of what we go through in life or what we face, no matter the adversities, we can always elevate.That’s the core concept behind everything that West Coast artist Rank Rated does. His music, his art and his message is all about being better. And the long road he’s been on – from homelessness to successful entertainer – is a testament that with determination and a dream, you can fulfill your destiny.

Two of his most recent singles by upcoming composer PacoTheProducer– “Valid” and “Baggage” – speak directly to that life motto and tap into depths of his talent in ways that bring forward a new wave of sound and style for a generation desperate for something original. With “Valid” which is slated to drop on July 26, Rank Rated rails against the social norm of validation that pops up in multiple places of our lives.

“Everyone is looking for validation today,” he said. “We live in a time where everything has to have validation – whether it’s a credit score or experience in whatever industry you’re in, or even likes on social media. Whatever it is, we’re all seeking some type of validation and more often than not, we’re seeking that from other individuals. I had people who told me I couldn’t do certain things, but here I am. I validated myself and pushed forward based on what I knew I could do.”

Rank also reveals how through social media and mutual friends he has met people like DJ FiveVenoms, director JDfilms, and Quavo. He also stated an affiliation with JGreen (of YNW), whose manager Rank has been in contact with for a while and who he respectfully calls “Unc.” Rank also noted his independence through platform United Masters which features other artists such as Lil Tecca and Choppa on their roster. With “Baggage,” which was released in June, Rank Rated explores the hard work it takes to attain success. And once you achieve that success, the symbols that come with that, such as the baggage you bring with you as you’re traveling the world, can be an affirmation of that hard work that brought you to this point.

“I’m doing my thing right now, living my life and catching flights,” he said. “That’s what this song is about. It’s about getting to the money, a fun song that really says, ‘I don’t care what anybody else has to say.’”

“At the end of the day, I hope my music is known for being inspirational, in a way,” Rank Rated said. “I was able to do it so you can, too. Ranking up is something everyone can and should do, whether that’s getting a promotion at a job or trying to create a better life for yourself. Rank is having status. Rank is everything. So tell your haters to Rank Up.

In addition to his two most recent singles, Rank Rated has also released a new EP called “Far From Regular” which is available on all digital distribution outlets. With catchy lines about baggage and baguettes that slide on the beat, fans will definitely be eager to hear more.
