Steve the Rapper (Hip Hop)

 

Steve the Rapper is a Zanesville, Ohio hip hop artist & record label owner discontent with the status quo. Refusing to conform to industry expectations & arbitrary social norms, he is a voice for individuals who don’t fit the mold. Through disruptive criticism, punchy humor and moving confessions, Steve calls for a revolution in the music industry. Steve’s newly released album, Welcome to the World, is now available on all major online catalogs: iTunes, Google Play, Amazon, Spotify, Apple Music and more.

In the album, Steve the Rapper addresses racism, stereotypes, spirituality, life struggles and the music industry. From a violent free verse describing a physical altercation with Satan to a revealing confession of insecurity and hypocrisy, Steve takes listeners on a raw, controversial and moving journey through his misfit mind.

One album single (The Basement: Part 1) has already gained praise. “The heavy bass and beats overall have this great, old school hip hop vibe . . . a really talented MC . . . this track is fresh and real, and I’m into it!” -Arielle J. (Blogger & Mix247EDM Content Creator.) “Slappin’ track, and the wordplay is amazing.” – Jerry Doby, Editor in Chief of The Hype Magazine.

Influenced by Hopsin, NF and Eminem, Steve’s aggressive & intricate rhymes make for a boldly positive version of confrontational west coast-style rap. Also inspired by artists Macklemore and Lecrae, Steve’s music always has a larger purpose. In Steve’s words, “my vision is simple: to change culture with good music.” With raw lyricism and missional purpose, Steve invites young listeners into a powerful movement of change for the coming generation.

Earlier this year, Steve founded a record label called Zaney Records. Welcome to the World was the label’s first release—but this is only the beginning. “After releasing my own debut album,” says Steve, “I will be actively searching for other local artists to bring onto the team at Zaney Records. Long term, my goal is to create a platform for tons of independent artists who are passionate about making a difference in the world.” Connect with Steve the Rapper and Zaney Records on their Official SiteYoutubeFacebookTwitterInstagram and Soundcloud.

First in Flight (Indie Pop)

 

Hailing from San Francisco, First in Flight emerged at the end of 2015 when best friends Richard Mier (guitar) and David Topete (bass) looked at each other during a Walk the Moon concert and said “we can do this”. After weeks of jamming in their gear stuffed rooms, they teamed with drummer Max Huss, who jumped over from David’s brothers band, and found singer/songwriter Pat McCloskey through Craigslist (I know right?). Hailing from Chicago with a pretty falsetto and stories of too many one night stands, Pat brought the pop dynamic the band needed to project their Neo-80s rock into the modern age, and the group became official on September 1, 2016.

With their new found chemistry, FIF quickly began polishing their songs for the stage and studio. Their goal was simple: make the tracks for your “get hype” playlist. Their energy on stage was contagious and after playing packed Friday/Saturday shows at Bottom of the Hill (SF), The Catalyst Club (Santa Cruz) and Brick and Mortar (SF), they realized that there was a solid market for their type of music.

Though First in Flight are an incipient band, they have crafted a rock solid debut EP. Each of FIF’s tracks has its own unique personality while the Neo-80’s vibe weaves the record together into a cohesive unit; a brash but friendly melding of genres that invokes the 80’s without making a definitive declaration. Their debut EP Hold on the Highs was released onto Spotify and Apple Music on January 6th, 2017 and they look forward to their tour of the West Coast in late 2017. Connect with First in Flight on SoundcloudFacebookTwitter and Instagram.

Unlikely Heroes (Hip-Hop/Punk)

 

It may come as a surprise to younger folk, but there was actually a time when hip-hop artists and punk bands would cohabitate, and even play shows together. Starting in the 70’s and early 80’s, oppression, poverty and political resentment converged, leading to a surprising amount of collaboration and acknowledgment between such counter-culture renegades (“of Funk” lol, had to).

“Main stream” innovators of the cross-over genre are often attributed to the early works of the Beastie Boys, with the most credit given to the 1986 rehashed hit “Walk This Way”. But if we’re talking about the purest convergence of urban and punk culture, that first cannot and will not be taken from the Detroit born pioneers of proto-punk, Death. (Seriously, a band of black dudes making punk music IN DETROIT could not have been easy in the 70’s. Mad respect)

Flashing forward through an endless sea of 90’s rap-rock garbage that was Limp Bizkit, Crazy Town and countless others, Rage Against the Machine stood the only victor. Since the fabled 99’ Woodstock disaster, few hip-hop/rock bands have emerged, let alone hip-hop/punk bands. This gaping void has made way for such unlikely heroes as…Unlikely Heroes.

Unlikely Heroes is Hip-Hop/Punk Rock band from San Francisco, Ca. This eclectic group is synthesizing Hip-Hop and Punk with beats and melody that are fresh, exciting, and long waited for. Boasting high energy, venue rocking jams, they find balance with spacey, vibey anthems to create a well-rounded sound and depth in their form. Comprised of members Enon Gaines (vocals), Ruth Marin (bass), Atlix Martinez (guitar) and Jeff Wilson (drums); these Heroes truly cater to their “more than meets the eye” appeal. Aesthetically, they are a diverse group with a wide range of cultural and musical backgrounds. Sonically, they are insane Hip-Rockers that can cater to any crowd or venue without losing their power in translation.

Cited as “A moshpit of no bullshit punk and hip-hop born on the streets of San Francisco” (SF Gate), the Heroes’ presence cannot help but be felt. Lead singer Enon Gaines is the x variable in the equation. With a Kid Cudi-esq sound and flow, Gaines drives each track along with the high energy backed punk triplet. Martinez’s lively arrangements slap the auditor with classic punk grooves giving way to tooth grinding solos and bridges. Marin is a lick-laying female bassist who frequently contributes backing vocals and Wilson’s speed and power often shines through the mix.

The Bay-Area quartet was slated to release their debut EP in 2016, but has yet to gift the world with their inaugural declaration. Collecting accolades along their journey including winning the Music City – San Francisco Battle of the Bands and Virgin Mobile/America FreeFest Freestyle, the band is clearly stamping their name on the scene. Frankly, we are bursting with anticipation in wait for their future sounds. Connect with Unlikely Heroes on their Official Site, Youtube, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
