Talking With Rock City

Rock City

Calling brothers, Theron & Timothy (aka Rock City), just rappers or singers, would be to barely scratch the surface.

They are artists – in every sense of the word.

I spoke with Theron aka Da Spokesman about Rock City’s entry into the music business, writing for the biggest artists on the planet, and of course, their movement – PTFAO.

3 New Artists You Need To Know

As you know, I don’t really post music on here really. It just confuses the message of my site and people start confusing this is a promotional outlet rather than a personal weblog for sharing information.

Today’s an exception though, so I’m going to post some new music. (Please read this before asking me for features)

This year, I’ve been fortunate enough to work with quite a few talented artists, so I decided to take the time today to showcase 3 of those acts with recent and/or upcoming projects:

Back In Effect

In my last post, I said I’d be gone for a week, and yet – I haven’t posted in 2 weeks.

My bad.

I didn’t forget; just got sick when I got back & been playing catch up on a ton of work.

Atlanta was great (as always). Got a lot done and met up with a lot of great folks.

I didn’t end up getting any pics or video (even though I brought my Flip Mino HD with me EVERYWHERE I went). I just can’t get in the habit of stopping what I’m doing to capture it. It’s like documenting life as opposed to living life.

I guess I have to get used to doing that – for the blog’s sake.

Anyhow, back to our regularly scheduled programming…

Gone For A Week

MTL 2 ATL

I’m heading down to Atlanta this morning, so I won’t be posting anything here for a week.

I’ll try to snag some pics and video, but I’m generally not the type to stop what I’m doing to take a pic/video, so no promises on that.

If you’ll be in town for the Core DJs Retreat or any other reason, make sure to hit me up and let me know.

In the meantime, I’ll still be updating my Twitter account, so you can add me there to stay updated/connected.

Peace! (until next week)

Talking With The Trafficker Management

Producer Manager, E, of The Trafficker Management

Producer Manager, E, of The Trafficker Management

Can you introduce yourself a bit and tell us what it is that you do and who you represent?

I go by the name of E.  I own and run The Trafficker Management.

We manage several producers, most notably: MegaMan, Tommy Gunnz and Boi-1Da. We also manage one rapper, Richie Sosa.

What’s the big difference for you as a manager, representing producers vs representing artists?

I would say managing an artist is a bigger challenge then managing producers.

The reason I say that is; with an artist there are more politics involved. It’s a lot more work and it takes a lot of patience. When handling artists you are not just selling a sonic product but a visual one as well.

Remember, an artist’s career is a lot more complicated than that of a producer. With producers, if they are talented then their beats can be sold.

My theory, is a great record will always find a home, no matter if it is a unknown producer from England or Timbaland. But don’t get me wrong, I do believe producers have a certain image to uphold. I also believe they should be out and about making sure people put a face to their beats.

MTL 2 ATL & Back 2 MTL

MTL 2 ATL

Sorry for the lack of updates this past little bit. I was in Atlanta for a bit, where the weather was so incredible, I’m trying to remember why exactly I came back to cold & snowy Montreal.

My trip was a mix of business & personal; as I went to take care of some work as well as celebrate my birthday with my fellow Feb 9’er, DJ Hotsauce (who shall now be known as Sawce, along the style of Rick Rawse the Bawse).

The entire trip was incredible and let me tell you, Southern Hospitality is very, very real! (Major shoutouts to Sawce & DJ Jelly)

Probably the funniest moment of my trip, was when I was walking into a venue to watch a live showcase and someone outside yelled out, “Yo! Are you Moe? You’re on Twitter right?”.

I’m sorry, but that right there is some cool-ass sh*t. Being recognized in a different city, and solely based off of Twitter? Eff yeah! Anyways, I digress (I still feel special though).

There were several people I was looking forward to meeting with, however due to the fact that many people were in LA for the Grammy’s and other scheduling conflicts, it didn’t work out – for this trip anyways.

Rather than shouting out everybody I met with (there are too many and I know I’ll end up forgetting a bunch), just know that everybody I met with down there is good peoples and it was a blast.

I’ll be back sooner rather than later, so I definitely look forward to meeting with everybody I connected with & all those whom I’ve yet to do so.

Interestingly, I kept getting the same comment from several people while there: that I need to update my blog more often.

I definitely intend to.

This counts as one.
