[Video] Mr. MooQ ‘No One’ | @mr_mooq

Mr. MooQ writes songs that are, at times both “Old Fashioned” and also very contemporary. Pulling emotions from the deep well of his experiences, Mr. MooQ writes and produces music alive with “feeling.” His thought-provoking lyrics are sung with a different spin, combining beautiful melodies with powerful grooves. Though the beats may change and the production will vary, every song tells a story and is written from the heart.

With the release of his latest video for the song “No One”, Mr. MooQ brings us through the haze into the side of reality that is his realm. Mr. MooQ romances the world of groove to a whole new level, Inventing a hybrid genre he calls EDM-Lite/Synth/Pop his music is passionate, unique ,and witty.

“No One” is most definitely a love song of both meaning and character, the narration of one saying, and seemingly admitting that he may not have anything of “this world” to offer, may not have wealth and fame.. but they have heart, true love, honesty and honor.. which is all that really matters. a great song we really need to hear and have in our lives these days.

For as long as he can remember the young man felt the music coursing through his soul. No matter the day’s activities and distractions it seemed music was ever present with melodies and lyrics in his thought processes. So it was natural for him as he grew older to explore how he could incorporate music more fully into his life.

After high school he trekked to Los Angeles because at that time if you were serious about music that is where you went, sleeping in his car to save money for pay for studio time. He met, and played with a lot of veteran professional musicians gleaning industry and composition knowledge from everyone he encountered.

Returning back home he founded a group called The New Occupants that delved into a new music genre – EDM. This talented group produced a number of electronic dance tunes that quickly earned significant international acclaim. Despite this success the man was unable to completely sate his musical muse because he was finding his primary love, musical composition could not be limited to just one genre. More and more he was drawn into studio production work so that his wide ranging muse could be released to develop music in a variety of formats, and for a wide variety of purposes.

As an award winning musical artist and performer, he has enjoyed the accolades of success, including a Cleo in the advertising industry and developing music for numerous industries and commercial productions. He became sought out for his production talents, but still stove for perfecting his personal genre and style.

A few years back the man awoke from a dream to recognize the missing component was his initial foundation of developing and playing full songs as he did in his youth. He drew upon those long-ago memories to introduce an imaginary childhood friend by the name of Mr. MooQ who would serve to provide voice to his desire to once again return to some of the roots of his musical motivations. He became this persona, and now Mr. MooQ is no longer imaginary, but very, very real.

Mr. MooQ has worked hard to refine and evolve his musical sound into a hybrid genre that he refers to as EDM-Lite/Synth/Pop. Calling upon his life experiences this new music reflects on life’s intricacies and nuances combining thoughtful and witty lyrics with catchy melodies that often are very ‘danceable’, but also thought provoking. Check out Mr. MooQ’s latest musical efforts. You might just find that musical voice for which you have been looking.

[Video] Elektrohorse ‘Po Folk X-Mas’

Produced by Elektrohorse from Chicago/California, “ Po Folk X-MAS”, is a heavy hearted Christmas song that rings true for many. Highlighting a not so glamorous Christmas.

Everywhere you look you see breathtaking Christmas lights, beautiful decorated reefs and joyous shoppers filled with holiday cheer. The air smells of freshly baked cookies and is filled with sounds of jingles, bells and familiar toons. With all this holiday bliss, it can be easy to forget that Santa won’t be making a stop down everyone’s chimney.

Hundreds of children around the world will be wondering why Santa forgot them?

Country music Dj Elektrohorse has a new holiday jam “Po Folk Xmas”. This is the untold story that actually shows you how messed up Santa truly is to less fortunate people. He is also assisted by hick hop artist Apalachee Don from Georgia, Terell Skreetzz from Sc and Babe Animal from Ga. Elektrohorse is signed to Create music, the same label as Marshmello.

Apalachee Don, from Monroe Georgia, has the first verse. Pointing all four fingers at Mr. Clause, blaming him for a shitty Christmas with the lyrics, “Mr. Ho Ho Ho trying to stop my fun”.

Vocalist, Babe Animal from Atlanta Georgia, continues to set the tone with the heart breaking hook “I hope, I hope, I hope, Santa show love to the Po Folks”.

Rapper Terell Skreetzz of Spantanburg, South Carolina, uses clever puns to paint a vivid picture. His lyrics emphasize how Christmas looks entirely different for families that are less fortunate.

This Christmas anthem is a clever reminder that for families struggling to make ends meet, the magic of Christmas is more of a thorn in your side than a time of celebration. Terell Skreetzz does a great job highlighting the lack of magic and wonder for Po Folks on Christmas with lyrics such as “In the hood I ain’t never seen a reindeer’” and asking Sana,” is the ghetto on your shitlist”.

If Santa skips your house this year, just know you are not alone

[Video] @WavyBanx ‘My Fault’

Eric Johnson, also known as Wavy Banx is a Greensboro, North Carolina native currently residing in Atlanta, GA.

After graduating from college in North Carolina, Banx wasn’t surrounded around much motivation. Many of his childhood friends either turned to drugs or the streets, so Banx had to make a decision on the type of person who he wanted to become.

Isolating himself, he began to pursue and practice music as a way to channel his frustrations. Many people who graduated knew what they wanted to do, but it just wasn’t the same for Banx. Music opened up another avenue for him to express himself.

He practiced the craft by taking up freestyling and other styles of music. He also found lots of inspiration from his childhood when his dad would send him CDs to listen to while he was deployed. Fast-forward, Banx has released a few singles to the public and plans to release more music and videos to garner the attention of industry heads.

When asked about his inspiration, he says he’s inspired by many artists but most importantly, Lil Wayne, Tupac, and Juicy J. Versatility is important to Banx, so he says he loves to create music that can put you into various moods. He plans to release his first project “Rachet and Rewarding” and also plans to roll-out more content for his growing fanbase.

“This year, I’m going to make people feel me.  Just watch.

[Video] @OfficialJonB ‘Priceless’

jonb2

The singer has now returned with another new single called “Priceless”. He shared a preview of the song and video on his official Instagram account which you can watch below. The song and video was released in full on his birthday today, November 11th.

Although we can only hear a small portion of the song, it certainly has that Jon B. trademark swagg on it we’ve become accustomed to over the years. Now, the wait is really on not only for the new single, but for the new album.

In case you missed it, in a recent interview with youknowitgotsoul.com’s website, he discussed his single with Donell Jones, when to expect a new album, and much more.

From the video, we can see that our boy is on point, with hooks that thrill, this track, like so many of his past, will make the floors move in many a dance clubs. Jon B’s Priceless is just that.
