Kottonmouth Kings; latest LP, Mile High, was released in 2012 and charted at #10 on the Rock and Alternative albums charts, as well as #36 on the Billboard Top 200. The Southern California band has sold over 2 million albums over the course of their career in the indie music scene and continues to perform sold out concerts across the country.It all started seventeen years ago, deep in the suburbs of Southern California, in the aftermath of a punk rock & hip hop revolution - an unlikely group of stoned misfits formed a musical partnership that would ignite an entire generation of weed loving, free thinking, bass bumping, rip hop junkies. KMK has become one of the world’s most radical and savagely independent underground musical forces.
Rock's biggest underdog, Deuce was one of the genres breakout artists of 2012. "America" – the lead single off of Deuce's debut album, Nine Lives, which Revolver Magazine proclaimed is "A slick, nasty record that sounds like Eminem fronting Linkin Park" – was one of the highest selling rock tracks of the year. Deuce is a lyricist, songwriter, producer and knows-no-boundaries singer/rapper hailing from Los Angeles, CA. As the co-founder, former lead singer and main songwriter/producer for Hollywood Undead, Deuce emerged as the creative force that led the band to staggering albums sales of their debut, Swan Songs, which also reached #1 on the Alternative, Hard Rock and Rock album charts. Deuce is known for his signature masks and ability to jumpstart any party with his often raunchy and explicit lyrics. Since his departure with Hollywood Undead in 2010, Deuce has performed in front of thousands and released his debut solo album Nine Lives in April of 2012, which debuted at #2 on iTunes' rock albums chart and #16 overall.
Las Vegas-based rapper Dizzy Wright began rapping at just 8 years old with the group “DaFuture” with his brother and very close friend. At 17-years old with several years of experience Dizzy decided to take his rap career seriously. Formerly known as Dizzy D Flashy, Dizzy was a winner on BET’s “Wild Out Wednesdays,” winner of the Sheikh Music “Rip the Mic” Competition and released 5 mixtapes, which lead him to rack up over 1-million views on YouTube. Wright wants for people to learn something when they listen to his music by discussing situations that his fans can relate to. In November 2011, Wright signed to Funk Volume after being discovered at the Sheikh Music “Rip the Mic” Competition in 2010. Impressed by his smooth flow, confident stage presence and energy that won over the crowd, Funk Volume knew he was a special talent and would be valuable addition to the team. On the heels of his latest mixtape “Soul Searchin’ Next Level,” Wright will release “Smoke Out Conversations” on February 20th, and says the tape was inspired by Don Miguel Ruiz’s widespread book, “The Four Agreements.” “I live the four agreements …. The first agreement is be impeccable with your word. People will learn something from this mixtape.”
Snow tha Product
Snow tha Product (aka 22-year-old, Claudia A. Feliciano), a native of California, but resident of Texas, is an underground phenomenon and sensation taking the scene by storm in a way that has put male MCs on alert. She’s a beauty and a beast – looks and lyrical skills on the microphone, respectively. Physical stature aside, she stands as tall as any female MC in the game and can wreck a track in fluent Spanish or English with a handful of male MCs trying to match her lyrical level, as she did on Capea El Dough P City Remix.
Everything we want in a Latino - excuse us - Latina, hip-hop artist.
"I am versatile and even though I've been taught the industry wants you to pick a lane and stay there, I'm too hyperactive for that. I'm going to just swang this Cadillac I call a career."
Follow Snow Tha Product on MySpace and catch her web shows there every Wednesday at 9 p.m. CST. You can also catch her on Twitter, and download her free mixtape, Run Up or Shut Up here.
For ten years, the six musicians of Eskimo Callboy wandered through this cosmos called “Rock Music“, until they found each others in 2010. With their self-described, “Danceable porn-metal, with a pinch of psychedelic glam rock“, the creativity of these six mid-twenty fellows from Castrop-Rauxel, Germany is evident in their live performances and on their latest self-titled 6 song EP.
