Are you tired of that song that’s in rotation 3x’s every hour at your local radio station?
Mainstream music doesn’t seem to rekindle that excitement you used to have in your youth?
Well have no fear because the journey in search of real hip hop ends here! Jov Stellar guarantees you’ll be nodding your head to those funky breaks, boom baps and sick-ass lyrics as fast as you can say, “Give me deceptiveness or give me something else.”
Odes to some far and vague past, attended by grey organs and old strings, delivered by a horn and raw electronica. That cool quiet just before faith hits. However filled with suppressed nostalgia, they keep looking towards the future. They, that’s Float Fall.
A duo that succeeds in taming the silence and dreaming dreams until everything turns out all right just once more. Rozanne Descheemaekers’ voice guides you straight through the freezing tracks, but afterwards quietly snuggles up to the hoarse vocals of Ruben Lefever.
Float Fall’s songs make you move into another world, one lacking any final description, but a good place to be nonetheless. A place where the dull rustle of the past gets its second chance. Right up to the moment that dream and reality collide.
Born in 1988 as the 3rd of 4 children, Fritz initially wasn’t into hip-hop until he was about 8 years old. This was the year when The Fugees dropped The Score in 1996. It was then that Fritz developed a love for the artform and started writing his own raps. It wasn’t until he turned 15 years old that he started to take music seriously, when a chance encounter with a mutual friend brought him to his first recording studio. It was there that he met the group Black Mobb and, while he was still raw in terms of musical ability, they saw potential in him and asked him to join the group.
After a few years, Fritz eventually grew to become leader of that same group and went on to do dozens of features on various projects throughout the city of Boston. After a fallout over creative differences, Mr. Fritz then decided to branch out and start his own group with producer J. Capone (also formerly of Black Mobb affiliation) and they went on to form the Klean Up Krew.
The name Klean Up Krew, according to Mr. Fritz, is from the lack of a positive mainstream reputation on a national scale as far as Boston is concerned in the hip-hop scene. So Mr. Fritz and J. Capone have taken it upon themselves to “Klean it up” on their own terms.
On July 10th, 2011 Klean Up Krew debuted their first project T.R.U.T.H. or D.A.R.E. independantly, which was a double EP with 2 different styles of production. Mr. Fritz made a decision to base all of his records conceptually off of Batman’s rogues gallery, so that his discography would follow a certain theme throughout his musical career. He based his first record off the villian Two-Face, because he felt like he was “…taking a chance doing this record this way because I might alienated a lot of people based on how I put it together. I have old-school and new-school kind of clashing on here, but it was also sort of an experiment, too. Because I’ve been making music for everyone else, I never really made music for myself, so I wanted to see what would work for me best” Although there were several different producers on the project, the bulk of the production was handled by J. Capone and Mr. Fritz themselves. Many listeners praised the production and wordplay that was exhibited on the record and it went on to generate 1000 downloads from multiple sites as a free download.
Currently, Mr. Fritz and J. Capone have been working on the follow-up record to their first record, entitled Bragging Rights which is set for a 2012 release date. They are also working on the 3rd record entitled Address me as Mr. which should be released sometime after Bragging Rights.
Sweet As Revenge Were formed in the late 2003. They’ve been through lots of formation changes since that day. Their first single, “Broken Lines and Empty Smiles” was released in August 2004. The single reached the first position in MTV Cutting Edge and lasted for 7 weeks. And later on, the single was re-recorded for the Anthems of Tomorrow v/a album which was released by dE records.
And in 2008, they released “Birth Of Expectation” EP with 6 tracks: “Langkah”, “Between Logic and Sense”, “Potret Kehampaan”, “My Sweet Lullaby”, “I’m Fading Away’, and “Serenande”. Their hits single “Potret Kehampaan” was a total bomb til now, reached almost all over the nation.
Sweet As Revenge now are more likely to be called as one of the best performing band. The energy delivered in every of their shows made the crowds feel the emotional atmosphere. They are constantly wheeling on the edge of losing control, toeing the line between pure insanity and self-control.
In 2012, with Dinand on Vocal, Qzoot on Guitar, Febri on Bass, Akmal on Guitar and Nanda on drums, are ready to launch their new album called “Live Life. Regret Nothing” with hits single “Bebas” and “Summer”. They are truly hold their dreams continue to be the best.
Some might say, this is their best formation ever!
