No Comments

This week was a special one, while at a music video shoot I ran into a duo from New York who goes by MLCMxNOVA.  They are currently living in New York but have lived all over and are constantly traveling back and forth between New York and Florida. They make contemporary hip hop and have many projects in the works including the “Break It” video, which is why they were down here in Miami. The latest project they are currently working on would be “Forever KL.” There is no release date as of yet because they are going to let the fans decide the release date.

Young and Educated: Kevin


No Comments

This week we had Kevin from Young and Educated tell us a little bit about the group. They will be releasing their first mixtape as a group on February 26th, 2013. They were formed back in 2011 with just Kevin and J.T. They later added a few more members and have been building on the team since then. Their name originated because they are all young in their early twenties. They are also all in school and working towards bigger things. When it comes to the music they all jump off of each and have come to consider each other family. Kevin says, “They’re all like my brothers and Kenza is like my sister. They have two singers on the team one female and one male.

Prince Hakeem: A Producing Engineer


1 Comment

As we all know it takes more than just an artist to make a hit. There is so much talent behind the scenes and sometimes they don’t get as much credit as the artist.  Prince Hakeem is a self-taught producer and engineer but you would never be able to tell by the diversity and unique sound that he delivers. He has been doing music for 8 years. Growing up he wanted to be a brain surgeon until one day his uncle introduced him to Fruity Loops. He was intrigued by the program and was immediately hooked.

Matt Porche: A laid back Writer and Rapper


1 Comment

If you take one thing from listening to  Matt Porche’s  music is the pure creativity and passion he has when it comes to word flow. Originally from New Orleans Porche moved to South Florida at a very young age. As a kid he dabbled with writing and poetry always writing things down in a journal. At school he was always freestyling during recess and after school.  As a teen he would still freestyle in the halls but he never took music seriously until he met Op at school. Porche saw how at only 16 Op had such a passion for music and Porche was hooked. This is when he really started getting into the music scene. Porche wanted to be good at it and with everything else he wanted to excel. He started spending more time writing songs for himself as well as other artists. As with everything in life you have to network and Porche was on a roll.
