Yo world. My name is Jeremiah Jae. My music is hear for you to listen, comment on, and be entertained. At the end of the day its all entertainment right? Naaaw son, Im really trying to reach the chakras, help heal and rid the body of musical toxins that are filling the frequencies of the planet today, and express freely and honestly through the platforms of hip hop, jazz, pop, rock, and healing frequencies. If you listen closely you can hear within each track the vibrations of god manifested into sound. So in honesty, the music I make is for the god heads. For my own enlightenment and struggles to be. Don't get it twisted with some shit it isn't. SO ARE YOU ENTERTAINED???? IF SSOO MORE MUSIC TO COME! I like to release shit on my own. I have people now, and non-corporate legitimate organizations that are supporting the art and music that Im making. So if you hear some compositions or songs that are crazy, know that In some shape or form, you will be able to purchase my music within the coming seasons. or (if your like me) steal my shit for yourself. But know this, if you steal my shit, shit might come back to you like them 44 shells of love and karma. POP POP! PEACE - jae
L.A. native Giovanni Marks A.K.A. Subtitle often takes his music to terrains that others don't. His sound can't be classified by one album, song, verse or instrumental, since the description won't do justice to the classification of the next album, song, verse or instrumental. Often times classified under "nerd-rap" due to the lack of understanding in regards to his musical background, Subtitle's music instantaneously explores multiple genres, as well as ideas, cultures, principles and sometimes even languages!
The Koreatown Oddity
Koreatown, Los Angeles. Epicenter of the 1992 Rodney King Riots and America's largest concentration of Korean culture and commerce, the densely populated and often visually overwhelming neighborhood contains at least one anomaly lurking amongst the panoply of BBQ take-out spots and karaoke bars: for over 28 years it has been home to hip-hop producer and M.C. Dominique Purdy.
The Koreatown Oddity is the embodiment of continuity and commitment, absent qualities in the countless drifting dreamers who flood Los Angeles in search of redemption, reinvention: promises equally diluted and delusional. As a child he experienced backyard cookouts with Ice-T's DJ Afrika Islam and his pet iguana and dropped in on impromptu Tecmobowl matches with Grandmaster Caz and friends -- all through his mother's affiliation with hip-hop's legendary Zulu Nation. Later, as a student at Fairfax High, he and friends would call each other after school to phone-in their raps, taking turns recording verses on a boombox at the other end of the line, cultivating along the way an appreciation of the absurd and profound -- the B-movies of a certain North Hollywood video store and his parent's record collection at his disposal. Call it truth-seeking or just staying true, Dominique's productions are chapters in an ongoing legacy, each beat, each sound, each edit an organic outgrowth from his continuum of experience, absorbing wisdom and memories, shedding excessive layers 16 bars at a time.
Cunning and efficient, a wolf masks its ruthless instincts under the appearance of stoic repose. And Dominique, who beneath his beloved wolf mask becomes the K-town Oddity, inhabits a liminal space between the primal and the present, alternating serene passages with feral breakbeats divided across two tape sides, both sprawling and finite.
