Jiggz & Damis – Red Room

Industry Spotlight, ME Blog, Music, Videos

Party vibes take center stage with club banger
‘Red Room’ from South Florida natives Jiggz & Damis

MIAMI, FL – Three South Florida friends with an ear for great music and a talent for connecting with people have joined forces to create a genre-defining new sound. Artists Jiggz and Damis together with producer Ray Ali have dropped a new single called “Red Room” that is quickly becoming one of the most talked about club bangers throughout the South. Its upbeat vibe and party-time theme is connected with fans from all walks of life and is poised to be the kind of viral sensation that spreads like wildfire around the globe.

The trio of performers first came together about three years ago when a mutual friend introduced Jiggz and Damis to Ali. The two rappers had been working together on music off-and-on, and when they stepped into Ali’s studio it was like lightning struck. 

“That first day we started making music and everything just clicked,” Ali said. “We’ve been making music ever since and we’re working on our third project together. The sound just keeps evolving and it’s cool to see this fusion of melodies and high lyricism come together. It’s a whole different vibe that people haven’t heard before. Our beats are current but we’re also bringing out a whole different vibe. We are confident in our sound. If it gets heard by the masses, it will blow.”

At an early age, Jiggz and Damis knew they were destined for greatness with music. Jiggz performed frequently for large crowds, and Damis discovered early on an ability to bring words to life through his expansive vocabulary. When they linked up with Ali and immediately fused their talents together, magic happened. After that first day of work in the studio, the trio started talking about what they wanted to represent with their music and the legacy they wanted to leave on the world. The idea of high-quality diamonds was brought up as a metaphor for the type of music they wanted to create shortly after the idea of Diamond Global came about. Not just an independent label, Diamond Global will also encompass multiple other entertainment endeavors – from short films and videos to clothing lines and production for other artists.

“It’s our way of encouraging everybody out there to be the best version of themselves,” Damis said. “Not everybody is a perfect diamond, but everybody is a diamond and is a perfect version of themselves. And that’s what we want to show with our music – that people can be themselves. We want to motivate people to do better and to strive to be the best they can be. The whole reason we linked up together is because we saw that all of us have talent and we all want to strive to be better every day and push each other.”

In addition to “Red Room,” the trio has also been riding waves of success off their EP “DMND Vol. 1” as well as their debut single “Regardless.” With the release of “Red Room” and a music video that’s about to drop for that song, the group knows they’re about to become nationally recognized artists. They’re already hard at work on a follow-up EP with the intention of creating a “collection of what our sound is” over the course of multiple projects.

Roetarantino – Hard Living

Industry Spotlight, Music, Videos

Raspy rapper R.O.E. launches next wave of success
with new single ‘Hard Living’

PLEASANT, TX –  Up-and-coming rap star and entertainer Cordarro “R.O.E.” Wright – AKA Roetarantino – is a hot new talent out of East Texas whose one-of-a-kind sound is the kind of music that people all of the world need to sit up and pay attention to.

His newest single, “Hard Living,” is a track that simultaneously displays his unique talent and original sound while also giving fans an inside look at the life experiences that have molded him into the promising young artist that he is today. Growing up in the unruly parts of East Texas, R.O.E. dealt with a dysfunctional household with little parental guidance. But he was born with a gift for music, and his father had him on stages performing in front of audiences as a young boy. By age 12, he was writing his own lyrics and rhymes and by age 18, he knew he was destined to be a global entertainer. Since that time, he has written songs about the things he saw in the streets and the things that intrigued him about the lifestyles of true hustling. 

“This single is basically the story of my life,” he said. “It’s about when I was young and had a rough coming up. I think there are a lot of people who can relate to that. It’s a struggle song about real situations, and I think it will get a lot of steam out there when people hear it and know that they can connect with it. More than anything, I wanted a song that would let fans get in touch with who I am and give them a little more personal information about who I am.”

Described as a “laid-back riding track,” “Hard Living” showcases R.O.E.’s uniquely raspy voice. At times he harmonizes with the melodies on the track, making for an original sound that is rarely found in the music industry today. It’s a style that R.O.E. said he’s worked hard at perfecting over the years. Learning his craft was important to him, and he modeled some of his mannerisms from artists who inspired him over the years. He paid attention to the industry and acquired the art of knowing how to brand himself as an artist. Taking all of those things, he applied them to his own unique take on music and adopted the moniker “Real Ova Everything.” 

“My dream is to be an international artist and entertainer whose legacy is built from the ground up,” he said. “Success to me is doing what you love to do and getting paid for it. Living your dream. It doesn’t have to be with music – just whatever your dream is. Mine just happens to be music, and I want my music to be known for representing the people who come from nothing and attain success. You don’t have to be born with money. You can make it if you work for it. So I want my music to speak for the world and give them hope that they can do it if they never give up. My slogan is: ‘There’s no expiration date on your success.’”

R.O.E. said “Hard Living” is available across all streaming platforms and is just one of the six songs off his first EP “Broke Pockets, Rich Dreams.” A follow-up EP is slated to release in the next two months.

Adriano – Raw Hardcore

ME Blog, Music, Videos

East Harlem rapper brings ‘Raw Hardcore’ music
to the world with new singles

NEW YORK, NY – One of the best musicians who has flown under the radar for the past few years will soon be a household name, thanks to a couple of new singles that are already creating major buzz in and around New York. 

The artist’s name is Adriano and this hard-hitting rapper from East Harlem has been in the game for a minute. He has a signature sound that is familiar yet different and unique in a way that immediately makes people sit up and listen. His two new singles are “Raw Hardcore” and “Rock and Roll,” both of which are available across all streaming platforms. A new video for “Raw Hardcore” was recently released on his YouTube channel, and a video for “Rock and Roll” is slated to drop sometime in February.

“Raw Hardcore” is a song that Adriano describes as “fun, but still serious.” Underneath a rugged lyrical delivery, Adriano examines the journey that Hip Hop has taken over the past 25 years and begs listeners to consider what it takes to be pure to the craft and excellent in the things that are required to make one’s dreams a reality.

“I’ve been lucky enough to have been around people who showed me the old school game, and Raw Hardcore means taking it back to that New York hardcore mentality of just going for yours,” Adriano said. “It’s about knocking on doors and trying to break your way through. I’m stepping to the stage and into the spotlight. I’m going for everything this year. And I’m bringing that hardcore mentality of stepping out of your comfort zone and into yourself as a person. This is a song about that growth and journey.”

Adriano couples those thoughts and expands on them with his second single “Rock and Roll.” Slightly braggadocious in nature but in a way that’s fun and upbeat, the single examines those lifestyles that people choose to live and how often it’s easy to get caught up in the everyday routine and ignore the fun side of life. 

“Everything gets moving so fast and we get caught up in things like social media and work and everyday life – but we still have to maintain that rock and roll,” Adriano said. “This song is about what’s real and what’s not. Rock and Roll to me means showing you that magic of how this Hip Hop thing is done, but at the same time understanding we go through everyday stuff. So how do you do both and keep that rock and roll a priority? It can be done. It has to be done.”

Adriano said he’s excited for a wider audience to get to discover his music, and he knows that these two singles will help open more doors for him in the future for things like live performances and maybe even a tour.

DiVinci SanTana – OK

Music, Videos

14-year-old entertainer DiVinci SanTana drops new single ‘OK’

LOS ANGELES, CA – One of the hottest young entertainers in the business today is a teenager named DiVinci SanTana. Soon to be 14, he has already made a name for himself in Hollywood, and he’s preparing to take the next step in his career by launching new music that’s set to drop before the end of the year. 

Born in Los Angeles, DiVinci started in theater at merely 7 years old. He did numerous plays and eventually auditioned for America’s Got Talent. Opportunities continued to present themselves, and he was able to land acting roles on “Judge Hatchett” and Jeneen Robinson’s “I’m 13 Yo!” In the midst of those acting jobs, he began to realize that though he loved acting, his first true love was music. So in 2018 when he was introduced to the CEO of BTMR Entertainment Group, he knew he wanted to pursue music in a major way. 

In the year-and-a-half since that meeting, DiVinci has worked closely with super producer Malcolm Harvest (AKA Mal G) on an album that is tentatively slated to drop in May of 2020. The first single from that project is already complete and is slated to drop on Dec. 20. It’s called “OK” and it features DiVinci’s unique sound and style in ways that will make people sit up and pay attention. 

“It’s crazy how that song came together,” he said. “We were in the studio for so many hours and it was like 4 a.m. and it just kind of came together out of nowhere. The vibe is something different and new – not like anything else out there right now. We knew what we wanted to do and we accomplished that … and that feeling is very satisfying. Basically, it’s a song that says I was always OK and money will never change me. It’s a very upbeat, radio-ready song that I’m anxious for people to check out.”

DiVinci said one of the things that sets him apart from others in the music industry today is that his music is all clean. He’s also able to incorporate sounds and styles from multiple different genres. He said his influences come from people like Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, The Weeknd, Jimmy Hendrix and XXXTentacion. 

“I just want to make music for everyone,” he said. “Whether you’re sitting in the car with your mom, or your grandma, or your auntie, or whomever – they all can listen to it with you. I’m just trying to make music for everyone.”

DiVinci said while he’s working toward completing the album that will drop in 2020, he’s also continuing to act and will take the lead as Josh in the Emmy-nominated Christina Cooper feature film “South Central Love.” He’s also working on a music video for “OK” which he said he hopes to drop in early 2020.

FH (Fortified Hustlas) – Swerve Talk

Industry Spotlight, Music, Videos

Hip Hop duo out of Michigan brings genre
back to its roots with new single ‘Swerve Talk’

LANSING, MI – Hip Hop is music that comes from the streets. It’s a genre that was born as a
voice for the people – a reflection of the gritty reality that times are not always easy, good
people don’t always get ahead, and opportunity and justice are just pretty words spouted by
the privileged few who have never known life without them.

Two relatives out of Lansing, Michigan want to bring Hip Hop back to those foundations and
their unique style of music is gaining attention throughout the Upper Midwest. Mo Betta and D
Eagle don’t play the fake game. From the moment they started rapping together as children,
they’ve made a pact to serve their listeners a more authentic brand of Hip Hop. Holding their
art to a higher standard, these two talented wordsmiths are bringing a refreshing realism to the
game – a genuineness born from their collective hardship.

“We’ve been fucked with and we’ve served time,” D Eagle said. “We’ve seen the world for what
it is, put that into words and strapped a fat beat on it. All we ask now is that you listen.”
Operating under the name Fortified Hustlas (FH), this rap duo has dropped a new single that is
turning heads both for its originality and its nod to old-school Hip Hop. “Swerve Talk” is a song
that uses the rich life as a metaphor for the struggles of the streets – with powerful imagery

serving as a testament for the hard things people have to do to survive. Paired with an upbeat
tempo, the hard-hitting lyrics are exactly the kind of Hip Hop rap that the genre was created
for. And though it’s not exactly a club-driving tune, it does have a beat and vibe that would fit
right in with those who love having a good time at the club.

The song features well-known Michigan artist El’Zappo, who brings his unique flow and witty
lyricism to the single in ways that the duo says perfectly rounds out the message they were
trying to get across.

“We touch almost all areas with our music,” Mo Betta said. “We’re lyrical but at the same time
we mix in our music with new sounds of today. Plus, there aren’t too many duos out there
today. In the last 10 to15 years, there haven’t been a lot of duos that you’re actually familiar
with. We’re blood cousins who have been rapping together for about 10 years, and we’ve
developed something that is very professional and sounds like nothing else out there today.”
D Eagle said he and his cousin have been inspired by some of the legends of Hip Hop over the
years – from Wutang to Jadakiss, Jay-Z and Fabulous. Some current artists also serve as
inspirations including J.Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Lil Baby and Quando Rondo. Like those big name
artists, they want FH to become a known household name not just for bringing good vibes but
for having a unique voice in the world of Hip Hop.

“Our music is about realism,” he said. “We’re teaching people something. We’re not just
rapping but are trying to teach and send out a message through the stuff we say.”

In addition to “Swerve Talk,” FH just finished a new song in the studio and is working toward its
release before the end of 2019. The duo is also working on developing music videos for their
new singles and plans to drop an EP sometime in 2020.

REME – Move

Industry Spotlight, Music, Promo

Houston rapper REME turning up the heat with new single, “Boom”

HOUSTON, TX – No matter what you do in life, there will always be folks who don’t take you seriously. REME is dishing up a soundtrack for everyone who’s not getting the respect they deserve with his new single, “Boom.” Tired of people not believing in what he is doing, and how he’s doing it, REME sought to take the heat to another level with this heavy hitting track. With its very aggressive and speedy style, “Boom” is meant to make a statement about how serious REME is about his craft.

While his previous single “Move” was more of a dark remnant, the new single has an uptown, space-the-chase vibe. REME’s lyricism is characterized by a rapid delivery of metaphors and a lot of phrasing. REME brought his aggression into the studio to make his point and to put out a hype song to get the fans going. The new single is slated to drop during the third week of November, and will be his first track published on all major digital platforms.

A serious and committed artist, REME writes from personal experience and what he has seen others go through. He also views what’s happening in society in a different light and puts that perspective into his art. His music speaks to those who have suffered from an unhealthy state of mind. “My music is for anybody who has been in that dark place,” REME stated. 

While other rappers are content to rhyme about topics that aren’t positive, REME is conscious about directing his energy towards more fun and uplifting themes. He believes that “money, drugs and jewelry don’t make the artist” and works to have a beneficial impact. “If you’re gonna do all this, you have to give back or show a way where others can make their way. That’s what I plan to do.”

Born and raised in Houston, REME grew up listening to a diverse range of artists, including Outkast, Busta Rhymes, Snoop Dogg, Biggie Smalls, Gucci Mane, Missy Elliott and Kanye West. He has always been around people involved in music and others trying to get the experience. Being exposed to music for so much of his life lead REME to pursue his own music career.

An immensely popular local performer, REME is currently putting together a new set of local shows in and around the city of Houston. He is always open to explore new places to play. Venues and fans should hit him up at REMEMUSIC@gmail.com.

The new single follows on the success of REME’s “DREMELAND” album, which has over 30 thousand streams on SoundCloud. “Boom” launches a new project which is in the works, and another single is set to follow. Before that, look out for a snippet from the new music video for “Boom,” dropping everywhere on social media before the single’s release.
