“Good Morning” from Rufus Martin & P.S.Y. (by PtodaS)
READ THE WHOLE STORY:
“Makin Money Now” - the first single off my forthcoming promo-album “STILL More Where That Came From”. I decided to make this my first single, because I think that track is unique, it’s different. The bass line is recognizable and the strings that come in, in every half of the verses and in the chorus are just sounding different to what you’ve heard before in a hip hop track.
The video was shot on one day in Ingolstadt (Bavaria), Germany by P. Frey formely known as DJ Enix for Suprime Pictures, visual company of A. Konrad, who is a gold & platinum awarded hit producer.
I’m happy to appoint the video release to be this month, April 2012.
I decided to release one last promo-album. This means, one whole album for free. Sometimes I think, I must be stupid for putting out my music for free, given the fact that I spent a lot of, i mean a WHOLE LOTTA time for this. My excuse, or better yet my argument is, that hip hop is not really successful in Europe at the moment. And if, they’re solely US-artists. Me being a blonde, white German dude that raps in English got it a little harder in that genre.
So I said, fuck it, I put out the album for free and reach as much people as possible. i call that promotion.
It’s very important for me, that my album drops 1 month before summer. So when people listen to my tracks, they’ll always connect it to summer, good weather and good moods. I’m a very positive and optimistic person, so summer is my time of the year.
STILL More Where That Came From. That’s the title of my new album. My first promo-album was entitled “There’s More Where That Came From”. It’s a statement that fits in perfectly with my situation as musician. Because I know, that I still can get better and work more professional. And the situation didn’t change, so there is STILL more, that I can offer or achieve.
Here’s a little preview of 12 tracks that will make on my album, dropping this summer 2012. Let me know, what quickened your appetite the most. :)
DUBSTEP. It will probably not conquer the charts as genre itself (although guys like Skrillex already won grammys), but it definitely won ground, attracted new fans and influenced the pop music industry the past year. You could find a dub step element in a lot of songs.
Me, being an open-minded musician and a thirsty producer, that wants to produce every type of music i had to jump on that train for a few miles too. But as always, I did it my style. I mixed dubstep with hip hop, rap and neo-soul.
Don’t want to dwell on the lyrics, though, just listen. :)
See, when you’re doing, what I’m doing, you will always have critics, doubters, haters and of course also people that respect what you do, maybe even love what you do, the fans. I feel blessed but most of all honored, that I can say my fan base is increasing daily.
Nevertheless, some people just like to be against something or someone. Maybe it’s envy, perhaps it’s jealousy… sometimes I really think it’s boredom.
I just know, when I get on stage, grab this microphone and start rapping, I leave these people shocked. I been told a story once… The first gig I did with a live band, I got up on stage and none of the band members heard me rapping before, because I was invited to their gig, because they were looking for a new rapper. So I got on stage and they played a cool beat for me.. It was not really a big deal for me…. of course it was an honor for me to play with a live band, but at the end of the day, it was a gig like all the others too.. So I performed. I’ve been told, that two or three band members behind me, stood there, mouth open and totally impressed by the way I rap. I guess they did not expect that white boy spittin fire like this… :)
I guess I left’em shocked.
