BLACKSTRAP

Release new single and Video for MONUMENT

Stockholm Sweden’s BLACKSTRAP offer their new song “Monument”, the third track released leading into their forthcoming album. “Monument” shows the band delivering a synth-driven rocker reminiscent of classic NIN, Primal Scream, or Jesus And Mary Chain. The B-Side is remixed and reimagined by Minneapolis, MN based band BNLX taking on the band’s recent dreamy shoe-gaze single “Make Sense Make Change feat. Victoria Bergsman”.

Montreal rapper CeasRock presents the ilovenewyork.usMedia-directed video for “All My $”, the new 514IndoRecordz-produced single from his Zero Gravity EP which features Uness, Loe Pesci, I.Blast and Boy 6lue as well as production from Vincent Pryce and DeeJay IZ. Born Sam Karimi, Ceas is a spokesman for Montreal urban site Mook-Life.com, as well as founder of his own movement, REAL LIFE. Videos have already been released for “Faceless” (click to watch), “10.5” (click to watch), “Mook Life Pt. 1” (click to watch) and “M.O.E.” (click to watch). “While I was writing for this EP, money was definitely on my mind,” says Ceas. “From how I was to earn it, to how much of it I needed to spend, it was looming over my thoughts heavy. I wrote All My $ from this perspective. I was hungry and I didn’t know how I was supposed to eat. The verses depict that hunger from a young desperate man’s view, and an older, equally hungry, man’s perspective. I didn’t feel like performing the verses in the video because the verses weren’t necessarily about me. So I focused on the feeling instead of a literal depiction of the lyrics. I recently graduated from university, but I have no intentions of using my degree to get a job. So, with that in mind, one day I was cleaning out my garage of about ten years worth of school papers, textbooks, old bills, etc… I thought to myself, I didn’t want to just toss it out, I wanted more closure. So I had the idea of burning them in a ceremonial bonfire. I’m burning the old me..I’m burning All My $.” Zero Gravity is available now on Ceasrock’s Bandcamp page.

Born Sam Karimi, Ceas is a spokesman for Montreal urban site Mook-Life.com, as well as founder of his own movement, REAL LIFE. Ceas believes that every single object, person, place or theme can be rapped about in an interesting way. “It’s all about the context” he says. Ceas has done R&B-flavored collaborations with the Uness and Crime In The City collective (click to listen) as well as live interpretations of soulful cuts on his Coolest Cats tape (click to listen). Videos have already been released for “10.5” (click to watch), “Mook Life Pt. 1” (click to watch) and “M.O.E.” (click to watch). “Faceless is my way of saying we’re all just numbers,” says Ceasrock. “It’s that feeling you get when you watch everybody go to work on the train in the morning. All these people have a story, but who cares? In the first verse I speak on my own story as an emcee, and how being relatively unknown is shaping me and the decisions I make. The second verse addresses the female population that is faced with a double standard of expectations on the daily. Both verses end with words of encouragement to keep it moving in this rat race we call life. The video is meant to symbolize this feeling of censorship through different depictions of facelessness.” Zero Gravity is available now on Ceasrock’s Bandcamp page.

Los Angeles rapper/songwriter/guitarist/producer Chris Jones a.k.a. Jonezen presents the Raul Perez/Red Zone L.A.-directed music video for “Dedications”, the first single from his forthcoming album Beautiful Disaster, the followup to his Live From Rehab mixtape. “Dedications” comes hot on the heels of Jonezen’s win at the Los Angeles Music Awards for Best Hip-Hop Artist. Told by doctors after an arrest that he may not live another year due to excessive drinking, Jonezen refused to go to rehab unless he could bring his recording studio. He found a treatment center in Los Angeles that would let him do just that and upon entering he began working on Live From Rehab. After leaving treatment Jonezen landed a distribution deal with Famous Records/ Fontana/ Universal. His single “Buried By Six” was produced by Father MC and released on Famous Records in August of 2012. This year Jonezen has done two independently booked tours, performed at the Speak Your Mind Hip Hop Festival alongside Blackalicious, been featured on several radio stations including The Weekend Top 30 ‘What’s Poppin Next’ and has been nominated for two Los Angeles Music Awards for Best Hip Hop Artist and Best Social Media. This year Jonezen released videos for two Live From Rehab singles, “On Me” (click to watch) and “If I Die Young” (click to watch). “I wrote ‘Dedications’ intending for it to be the intro song for my shows…it just turned out too dope to not put it on the album. The name says it all…this is my dedication…to the fans..my city…my people!” Beautiful Disaster drops March 2014.
