“Take these hard times as lessons and keep going”

mame-hope-cover-F.jpg

TOKYO, JAPAN - On Friday, August 11, 2017 - Japanese rapper and songwriter Mame officially releases “HOPE” as a short film and audio single, under Flourish$Prosper with distribution through Empi.re. HOPE is available across download outlets including iTunes, Google Play and Amazon, and streaming platforms including Spotify, Apple Music and Tidal. Available via pre-order on August 4, 2017.

Born in 1990, and at the age of twenty, Mame left Japan in order to pursue his dream and went to study at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. During that time his father became ill. Upon the worsening of his father’s condition, Mame returned home to help take care of him and his family.

“Life was in extremes, up and down when I was pursuing a career as a fashion designer. I was emotionally fucked up, living alone, and trying to reach where I thought I wanted to go.  Life wasn't easy, then I turned back to my country because of my father's illness. At that moment, I definitely hit the rock bottom leaving everything in New York, I had to start a new life. That was hard, and by taking the hard times as lessons, I kept going. That's how I felt when I could be on next level.
The experience made me realize my true passion and deeper dream in music and entertainment. Since then, I have transitioned from fashion designer to artist and have been working on lyrics and production, combining Tokyo flows with New York sounds in collaboration with super producer Dj Journey / Trip Digital Inc. Hope is the first song and music video of my struggles, and is what helped get me through them to now."

“You ain't ever ever ever had a sound like this - W.O.P"

Kris Payne - W.O.P

NEW YORK, NEW YORK - On Friday, July 21, 2017 - Baldwin/Brooklyn rapper and songwriter Kris Payne will officially release the “W.O.P”, under Flourish$Prosper with distribution through Empi.re across download outlets including iTunes, Google Play and Amazon, as well as streaming platforms including Spotify, Apple Music and Tidal.

Kris Payne - W.O.P is the first studio single of a series, in collaboration with Trip Digital founder Dj Journey and executive production duo Sweet Chuck Ravin Dave (S.C.R.D.). The club and car bumping single features a catchy vocal hook, sax lick and beat produced by Anthony “Tone T1” Fenner. Arranged into four verses of heat, the first of which will arguably rival a young Busta Rhymes or Twista, all three versions (Clean, Explicit and Instrumental) give djs and remixers all the the tools needed to slice, dice or sample this hot summer jam.

Kris Payne is not your average rapper. His flow and lyrics will take you back in time, while his smooth, raw vocal delivery is poetic and wistfully visual. Kris often draws comparisons to the likes of the Notorious BIG, LL Cool J and Dr. Dre, which considering his childhood upbringing, and being a Leo with the same birthday as Chuck D and Professor Griff, may be an indication. Payne grew up in Brooklyn, and then moved out to Baldwin, Long Island for high school.

Kris worked his way into regular rotation on BET’s 106 & Park and then found himself in a cipher with Run DMC. Payne drew the attention of Public Enemy’s Chuck D and The Bomb Squad super producer Keith Shocklee, both local Roosevelt, Long Island natives. Kris invested the past five years into building trust, which led to his mentorship from Hip Hop legends and eventually projects with Common and Rakim. Most importantly, Kris made the transition from playground battle rapper to recording artist now is now poised to set the stage on fire.

Sweet Chuck - Breaking News (Feat. Dj Journey)

Friday, November 4, 2016 - New York City:  Breaking News is a refreshing perspective on an over saturated topic we've all seen time and again this year. Local actor and artist, Charles J. Jugans III., also known as “Sweet Chuck”, finally brings an honest “spin” on current events in “Breaking News.”

Unlike other contemporary music videos, major network news, or late night satire – Breaking News” is a real, unabashed and irreverent sketch , which happens to also be a kick ass song (the first of four singles off his forthcoming album titled, “The Adventures of…” due to release in 2017.

Sweet Chuck features super producer Dj Journey, and directly tackles fundamental philosophical, race, and gender and issues juxtaposed with facts and sources. In order to bring the song to life visually, the unlikely production duo enlisted New York based Rock and Roll photographer, Jason Sheldon and co-founder of S.C.R.D.Ravin Dave as co-directors to shoot and edit the short drama.  

Breaking News actually goes deeper beyond that of a typical music video or even a short film. This video captures individual characters, who are playing the roles of those delivering the news. As a result each character comes to life in an authentic and  vulnerable manner; in the roles where they are not allowed to break character when reporting the worse of news stories.

The music video represents and speaks directly to today's sharing culture, the participants of which often pass along informations and react to content without digging deeper or knowing anything greater than just headlines.

Charles J. Jugans, III. is a professional actor that plays the character of Sweet Chuck, an artist and co-founder of S.C.R.D. In the past, Charles played roles in both film and music videos including:  Alanis Morissette ”Unsent” and “Lucky Days,” directed by Anglica Page, as well as been featured in “Man on the Moon,” “Finding Forrester” and  many commercials. The character of Sweet Chuck is limitless, and fans are able to live vicariously through his character and adventures.

Rhymes with Orange

 

 

DJ JOURNEY RELEASES FIRST ALBUM OF THE YEAR

Rhymes with Orange - Available NOW on iTunes

 

New York, NY (February 10, 2015) - Turntable artist extraordinaire and composer DJ Journey released a unique, surprising, versatile and intriguing instrumental album based on his experience from his Chicago hometown for providing his eclectic style and musical palate.

 

Rhymes with Orange is DJ Journey’s sixth album available on iTunes, and the first in a line of new compositions slated to be delivered throughout the year. What makes this album different than its predecessors is DJ Journey’s open approach, featuring a host of collaborators including, Anna Awe, Ladypills, Ravin Dave, Bill Ray, Mr. MC Clane, The Chicago Family, JAMO Wordart and Ason.

 

Rhymes with Orange is a spinoff of our lives. Orange rhymes with nothing. From DJ Journey’s point-of-view,

“We as artists do not fit into anyone's box. We exist before our time. We create things that don’t necessarily go with the culture mindsets of today. We are a group of individuals that create for the future. Meaning the future of tomorrow, the next minute, the next hour, the next day, the next year.”

 

As the creators of tomorrow, the instrumental album "Rhymes with Orange" represents the fact that these artists’ creations are relative to nothing, now. But will in fact be the inspiration for what will be tomorrow, and when looked back upon in the future. Does Rhymes with Orange represent the future of pop culture? Everyone different in their own way. Every online profile, every outfit, every hairdo, every voice, is different these days, and only time will tell. Until then, download the new album from iTunes for true inspiration from top talent.

DISNEY FANTASIA MUSIC EVOLVED

In anticipation of the October 21, 2014 worldwide launch of Disney Fantasia: Music Evolved, a diverse group of creatives, technology enthusiasts and executives met in The Event Space #DTLA (Downtown Los Angeles) in order to gain a first look and chance to experience the award-winning game.

But it’s important that in the mixing process, we mix in real, live experiences and human interaction as well. That’s why the collaboration makes sense.”
