linkedIn - Ice Cream Release Date!
Instagram

If you haven’t heard the noise yet of the hip hop duo THookz & Purcella then be sure to stay tuned, because there is a fire brewing!

Both recently shot their music video for “Ice Cream” in Brno, Czech Republic.  There features in the film, a number of different scenes.  One of which being the notable Špilberk Castle, constructed around the later part of 1200 AD.  Shots were taken through the streets of Brno right in the same location where Rihanna had gathered footage for one of her feature films.

Catching The Vibe

84FEFA27 04C3 4605 95BF E5D3EC6CC776 - Catching The Vibe

The “Wow” Factor

Have you ever found yourself in a position where people are bobbing their heads back and forth with their jaws open and all they can get out of their moths is “wow” or “yes?” Well that would be the “wow” factor, or the “vibe” of the music. As a musician, I find that I come up with the best material when I can wow myself. It doesn’t stop there, though.  After I find myself salivating over the recent chord progression that I created, or sound that I orchestrated, I like to get others opinion about what I have made to see if they also can feel the same energy that the track is putting off for me.  Sometimes, it’s not near to the same amount of “wow” factor and other times it’s just a head nod and a continual “that’s it!”

It is Crutial!

I cannot emphasize the importantance of not getting caught up in your own sound enough. As a producer, you always want to keep your audience on their toes, with their jaws dropped. To get to a position to where you are always doing that, you have to be able to accept constructive input and that sometimes means even dumbing down your sound (Taking our that secondary or only having one snare that hits besides an off snare).  Dumbing down might be the wrong word for this, a better term is “keeping it simple.” In 10 years of producing hip hop I have learned that simplicity is key to creating the most catchy music 🎼. It’s not all about YOU (the artist), it is all about your listeners and what they want to hear.  Most people don’t want to feel like they are doing math problems in their heads when they are listening to hip-hop. They have progressive metal for that.  Fans want to hear an eloquent yet simple beat that drives the lyrics.

Emc vibing out

So, just remember, if you want to keep your listeneners on their toes, make sure that they don’t have to try to catch their feet, because they will look to some other producer to supply the right remedy.  Artists and fans alike want to hear music that they can VIBE out to, not number crunch! 📚

Making Moves to the Czech Republic

“Be the change you want to see in the world”

Prague, Czech Republic

From Raleigh to Brno

FROM RALEIGH TO NEWARK TO GERMANY TO VIENNA, THEN FINALLY A 2 HOUR TRAIN RIDE TO the Czech Republic MADE FOR A WHOLE DAY OF TRAVEL. WHAT A JOURNEY AND A NICE A COUPLE THAT HELPED US ROLL OUR BAGS TO THE HOTEL BARCELÓ BRNO PALACE. IT’S AMAZING TO ME HOW THE PEOPLE IN MOST OF EUROPE ACTUALLY WALK EVERYWHERE AND A FRIENDLY COUPLE WOULDN’T MIND HELPING US LUG OUR LUGGAGE FOR A MILE. LOVE IS A LANGUAGE THAT IS SPOKEN BY ALL CULTURES. BELOW IS A PICTURE OF THE HOTEL I AM STAYING AT.
Hotel Barceló Brno Palace

FOOD AND BEER

BRNO IS A BEAUTIFUL PLACE TO BE DURING THE HOLIDAYS. THERE IS A PARTY IN THE STREETS THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE NIGHT. IF YOU LIKE DRINKING BEER, WINE AND VODKA THEN THIS IS THE PLACE YOU WANT TO BE. NOT ONLY IS THE ALCOHOL OF BETTER QUALITY BUT THE FOOD IS NOT GENETICALLY MANUFACTURED AND THERE ARE NO ADDITIVES WHICH MIGHT SEEM BORING TO THE USUAL AMERICAN PALATE, BUT FOR ME IT MEANS EATING TO MY HEARTS DELIGHT. NO GMO’S MEANS FOR A HEALTHIER SOCIETY AND HAPPIER PEOPLE.

MUSIC

THE MUSIC SCENE HERE IS ONE IN WHICH CAN DEFINITELY BE MOLDED BY THE RIGHT HANDS. SINCE EVERYBODY IS OUT WALKING AND HAVING A GOOD TIME, LIVE MUSIC IS QUITE POPULAR. CAN’T WAIT TO BRING MY MUSIC FROM THE STATES TO THE CZECH. IT’S CLEAR THAT NICKI MINAJ AND CARDI B ARE TWO ARTISTS THAT YOU HEAR OVER HERE, BUT I HAVEN’T HEARD MUCH ELSE.  THERE IS A LOT OF GROWING FOR THE MUSIC INDUSTRY TO DO OUT HERE AND A BIG IMPRESSION FOR ME AND MY TEAM TO MAKE.

MUSIC PROMO IN EUROPE

EXPECT TO SEE POSTERS UP AND DOWN THE STREETS OF PRAGUE, VIENNA AND BRNO SHOWCASING MY SERVICES FOR DOING MUSIC PROMO AND SELLING BEATS. ME AND MY PARTNER PURCELLA (FIND MORE ON PURCELLA
HERE)HAVE FOUND THAT THE HIP HOP SCENE IS NOT MUCH OF A SCENE WITH A “GANGSTER” APPEAL HERE IN THE CZECH, SO WE AIM TO CHANGE THAT BY STARTING WITH THE NIGHT CLUBS AND STRIP CLUBS A LOT OF THE MUSIC IN THE DINERS AND BARS IS STILL FROM THE 80’s AND 90’s, SO THERE IS A LOT OF WORK TO DO, WHICH I AM EXCITED TO BE A PART OF.

Reasons to be Thankful

THookz besides the lake and the fountain in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Happy Thanksgiving!

Wild Turkey from Eastern USA

It’s that time of year again, where food is on the minds of every American family. A good tip for anybody to gain a little happiness in their day, is to give back. If it’s not feeding the hungry, then calling a best friend an letting them know how much you appreciate them. Being thankful for what you have, no matter how great or small of wealth, is the key to getting more. It is also the key to finding happiness in the smallest of things, no matter how large the circumstance.

You Source of Happiness

The best music is made with true emotion.  For some, writing dreary and depressing songs can help bring their happiness out, because it gives room to let out what’s impending on the heart.  For others, being thankful about all of their surroundings in the immediate can bring them out of a depressed mood.  Whatever your ‘choice type’ of coping mechanism is, you will recognize that being thankful is the end or the beginning result of being happy.

Making Art is Giving Back

Remember that if you are an artist, then you can contribute to the world with your abilities! Most musicians have a sense of altruism behind what they do, if they don’t even know it. Search deep within’ yourself before you write your next song, or play your next note and find where the vibrations leads to in your heart.  The same vibration that is felt when something good is done for you or when you do something good for somebody.  Take that vibration and send it down the world’s spine!
