New Mexico artist Phoenix of Be Known Records joins forces with Bazanji out of North Carolina for the cool, self-possessed track “No Hesitation”. Over a bass heavy, piano driven beat composed by East Coast producer $ledge Beats, “No Hesitation” is an unruffled anthology of three musicians coming together in an attempt to grab the proverbial brass ring.
Be Known Records artist out of New Mexico Phoenix drops the track “The Game”. Taking aim at that one person you’ve had your eye on and convincing them to see the light. Come here, girl…
Unafraid to show vulnerability in a line of work usually embodied by bravado, New Mexico artist Phoenix and his Be Known Records counterpart 10 MP shed a bit of light on those they may have loved and lost. The sample taken from Roxette’s 1988 hit “Listen To Your Heart” is a perfect match for the old school boom-bap beat from the same era. Keep an eye out for a new project from Phoenix, while 10 MP’s latest release SummersEnd is available now.
Available for download on Live Mixtapes, 10 MP builds on his free-thinking musical style with his seasonal celebration, SummersEnd. Prominent on the release are open-minded, educated concepts and lyrics from the New Mexico artist and collaborators including Pacheco and Phoenix; highlighted by the previously released Johnny Diplo produced “Melting“, featuring Kayden$e and CLVPRO. Also contributing production to his own project, 10 MP’s SummersEnd also has joints from LaFrance, Mad Money, Uncle Dave and C – Rock Beats.
On a dope beat provided by L.A Chase, 10 MP teams up with fellow New Mexico MC Phoenix for his first release of 2015 with “Knockin'”. Fresh off the success of 10 MP’s last project, The Awakening, the upcoming Lights EP is expected to be something special. While no release date is set for Lights, the project is slated to feature Hostile Youth’s Uno Hype as well as production from C-Rock Beats and Chicago’s Odd Couple. Keep an eye out for that.
