A Closer Look at the Hottest Movement in New Orleans: New Orleans Union For Entertainment(1 Yr. and Counting)

Tuesday, November 6th, 2012

Sample Artwork designed by Brandon Brumfield

 

Systematically, it is normal for top music industry stakeholders in particular markets to consolidate current music releases and forward it to the masses within that market.  Bloggers, deejay pools, well-known  producers and deejays, journalists, and radio personalities are responsible for delivering new music to the audience.  Although this is an effective model, some areas often have a slower movement related to the advancement of music as a whole within their area.

 

 

 

 

 

A year ago, New Orleans stakeholders addressed that concern by developing a music union, New Orleans Union For Entertainment.  Within one year, ten releases via mix tapes have been presented locally and nationally online.

 Several articles have been written by Arlene Culpepper of The Heat Magazine, and music has been added to rotation on Robgradio.com by Legendary Dj Erv.  Original Ice Mike 1200 has mixed  several independent artists’ mix tapes, and also released his individual mixtape series, High Definition, via Coast 2 Coast mixtapes.  Bigg Ramp has spread the word regionally with his executive Christopher Roberts of  Phat Phat N All That.  Socialite and community activist Kali Red has promoted NOUE within the southeast region also.  The movement is equipped with a multitude of services including LaJoan Williams of Dream Management who offers email marketing, management services, etc.

Now with a NOUE solidified movement, KCRR, owned by Charlie Martin, a NOUE member, just added a new radio show featuring Cise HD. Cise HD,  a well known producer from New Orleans responsible for production on Mystikal, Ghetto Twiinz, and other classic New Orleans releases, adds another dimension, “The Hot Boy Radio Show” to NOUE.

As it relates to artist development, a cast of hot growing artists have branded or added to their name and sound.  Majesty Sozey, Redd, Marcy, Da U Boys, Youngest 1s, Jack Spratt, Jay Jones, TNC Boys, L.A.W., Choice Rhymez, Phat Coast Records, ViGi and Trinidad, Young Torrento, Hoghead Productions, Ape Squad Divaz, Bruce Lee Roy, and others have etched their insignia on the New Orleans scene and the mixtape circuit internationally via NOUE.  Accompanied by veteran artists such as Partners N Crime, UNLV, Ms. Tee, Bigg Ramp, Mr. Serv On, Juvenile,UTP  Skip, Lil Cali,  Fiend, Kunta Fly Snooka, Currensy, Ice Mike, Sess 4 5, Ghetto Twiinz, Devious, and more, the NOUE All Stars have become a mainstay within the industry.

“Heart of The City” , NOUE’s  anniversary edition mix tape,  represents the deeper meaning of the union which is to “collectively advance.”  As the release date nears, NOUE continues to realize the vision that true New Orleans artists share which is to preserve and promote the heart of New Orleans urban  talent locally and abroad. New Orleans Union For Entertainment has been in operation since June of 2011 and has quickly developed over a short period of time in hope of a more productive music scene in New Orleans.

Diggin’ In The Crates: Kendrick Lamar, Alley Boy, Jay Jones

Saturday, September 29th, 2012

 

Many opinions circulate when the topic of hip hop surfaces.  Truth of it, hip hop is a multicultural art. Additionally, it is a subculture rooting from urban communities. The 21st century supplemented by the new paradigm in technology, has allegedly suffered from deculturation (forgetting the roots) according to many.  However, there are artists who create music for all listeners and continue to offer unique tunes that encompass literary skills and substance.  This is not a legitimate argument to some.  At the end of the day, the fans have liberty to decide what music they enjoy and want to experience.  In the mind of the original hip hop head, themes and messages are still the “nuts and bolts” to “good music.”  Personally, being eclectic is vital to appealing to the masses.  As I perused the crates of new music, I discovered three important records out of many.  Kendrick Lamar, Alley Boy, and Jay Jones all have new tunes that offer the same message.  What is that message?  Many may believe the message is “keep the essence” in urban music.  Lamar “Swimming Pools” uniquely crafts a song which promotes “drank” in its hook while ironically giving the audience the heads up on overindulgence of alcohol.  Alley Boy incorporates bits and pieces of the late UGK icon Pimp C’s  controversial interview within the intro of his new mixtape, “The Gift Of Discernment.”  Alley Boy apparently wishes to assert the importance of being consistent and accountable as an artist to the youth.  Jay Jones “King Leon Remix” is an antithesis to what some 21st century New Orleans locals generally drop in the popular arena.  Jones reinforces lyrical prowess.  Certainly, Jones lives up to his hood’s reputation, “Hollygrove,” a New Orleans neigborhood with innumerable lyricists.

As the fourth quarter approaches, it appears that a resurgence of the “blueprint” could be forming.  The underground obviously wants to preserve creativity and skill within urban music.  Whether it has been compromised or not, is in the ear of the listener, but implementing the “roots” in music definitely speaks volumes.
