Fausto

Recently back from New York filming his new music video titled “LPNY”, directed by Diego Cruz and produced by Runaway Muzik. “LPNY” is a song about living life to the fullest, going places you’ve never been and chasing dreams.
BIO:
Born and raised in southwest Detroit Michigan music has always been a part of fausto’s life since the earliest days of his childhood. When he was in the 1st grade his dad gave him his first radio and on that day you can say “The music was born”. taking a major interest in genres such as heavy metal,rock alternative, etc. Fausto always had a different take and outlook on music although he didn’t immediately began making music he expressed it in a different way often writing poems and short verses. by the time Fausto reached 9th grade he had already started playing guitar and at the time was in a band which he formed with a couple of his classmates called “Worlds Upside down” many called him weird and gave him funny looks for the genre of music he was into, but that didn’t stop him he continued writing songs and making music. by the time “Worlds Upside Down” split up Fausto had met Moziah “Verda Styles” Foster one of the guys behind the whole reason that Fausto Raps now. moziah came across a couple of Fausto’s poems(Short songs) and would always say to him “yea that sounds good but now rap it for me” Fausto would always reply “na man idont rap” eventually Moziah got Fausto comfortable with rapping and listening to hip-hop music you can say he stumbled across hip-hop kind of late. moziah “schooled fausto on everything that was hip-hop the style,culture and everything he knew. now influenced by rock and hip-hop fausto resembled a style similar to one of his favorite artist Eminem. Fast foward years later Fausto has created a style of his own and has a lyrical ability that seems to grow with every verse he drops. if you dont believe it just “let the music play” Forever dropping Metaphors,punchlines,and references that will often have you saying to your self “now why didnt i think of that?”now a days fausto is branching out and reaching out to all sorts of genres of music jazz,hip-hop,electro,pop, etc.and if he isn’t already… its only a matter of time before hes on your radar. stay tuned….”let the music play” “May love be everything you Wished For” -Fausto


Introducing: Touch Somebody

Touch-Somebody

Allow me to introduce Sterling Heights-based Touch Somebody; a pop-infused quartet with an attitude. If you’re a fan of Blink-182 or Say Anything, you’ll definitely want to stay tuned.

After some less than successful experiments, the guys of Touch Somebody finally came together for the purpose of writing what they really feel, rather than conforming to a particular style. Last year Touch Somebody recorded and released a DIY album entitled Is it Wrong to Say I Love You?  and begun to play shows around the Metro Detroit area.

Lead singer and guitarist, Thomas Dameron, spent his fair share of hours behind the board before heading off the recording and producing the band’s debut album. Previously, he spent many years writing and recording electro-pop tunes under the moniker, Audio Summer, while he was only in high school. Now working with a full band, he upped the home-studio ante to produce the first Touch Somebody album. Dameron explained that the greatest challenges in producing a record in his basement came from recording live drums with his brother, Jon. Through a number of technical issues, delays, and unfortunate mishaps, the guys were finally able to release the album approximately 1 year ago via Bandcamp. The album is free, and I encourage you to check it out right away.

In more recent history, the group has recorded a few singles with legendary producer, Rob Freeman, of Hidden in Plain View- who is know best by his work with Gym Class Heroes, Hit The Lights and Armor for Sleep. We’ll have to wait to see when those singles appear, but in the meantime the boys are making some additions to the home studio as they prepare to hunker down and record a wealth of new tracks that have been written since the release of the first album.

Get to know the band by checking out the first video from a two-part series about the band, produced by Habitat Media Group:

 


The HandGrenades Release New Video for “Wrapped in Plastic”

hg

Detroit favorite, The HandGrenades, just released the best (more like whatever the superlative of bomb-ass is) video I’ve seen come out of Detroit in a long time.   This eye/ear-gasm for their track, “Wrapped in Plastic” off of their awaited EP, 52, was directed by their very own, Jesse Shepherd-Bates.  The crew lets us sit-in on a rustic black-and-white concert, which quickly becomes as personal as a basement jam session with close friends.  Each character in the story transforms from blurry to sharp as we get to know them.  Meanwhile, the video gradually becomes more chaotic with its soundtrack, as images layer on top of one another and the band members’ faces grow jumbled.  So, in the glorious end, we are left with the real madness of things once, but no longer, wrapped in plastic.

 

Check out their video below and get stoked for their new EP, which comes out May 13.
