MS. DJ. DESIM

DJ Desim is a new force in the House/NYC music scene. Dropping the sounds that isn’t easily defined on eager ears, DJ Desim is emerging as a sound to be reckoned with…

Born to a mother who was a ballet dancer and a musician father, Tunisia has the arts practically embedded in her DNA. Raised in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, she spent her childhood snooping through her Dad’s record collection, playing all the Prince, Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix and Pink Floyd she could get her hands on and her home was always filled with the sounds of reggae, Brazilian jazz, and the emerging hip hop beats of the 80s.

During her childhood in the city, Tunisia connected with her family’s musical roots by joining the Middle Collegiate Church Choir in the East Village, singing in the prestigious St. Bartholomew’s Choir in Midtown and as a teenager attending the LaGuardia Performing Arts High School.

She also started exploring the underground NYC rave and skateboard scene, and found herself captivated by the music, especially drum n bass. Motivated to explore this scene in other places, she moved to San Francisco and found herself getting down to the sounds of Derrick Carter, David Harness, DJ Laird, JT Donaldson, Mark Farina and Miguel Migs. Inspired by the music, it was at this point when she decided to revisit her childhood love for records and start spinning her own house mixes. This is when Desim was born.

DJ Desim’s first gigs were in Vegas at the Red Room and Ra Sushi. From there, she moved back to the East Coast and found herself opening for Lord G, Hector Hex, and Darryl James at Bar 13 in NYC and has been spotted spinning at weeklies, art galleries, store openings, and other special events around the NYC.

Keep an ear out for DJ Desim cause you just might discover that she is the one responsible for turning you out..

E.D.Y. brings the”French Connection” to the Global Attack Mixtape Series!

Posted by: Scott

E.D.Y. from his first name Edouard, comes from Paris, France. Born into a wealthy background, the connection with

E.D.Y.

rap was not obvious. It is from the age of 14 that he has started travelling to the United States, especially in Monticello, New York where he discovered a very different culture than the one he was raised in, that of hip hop, its music and values. After several trips to the United States, his outlook had changed, E.D.Y. resents its environment and naturally turns towards the music he adopted more and more, American rap. Thanks to G-Unit’s Beg For Mercy album, E.D.Y. found his passion for American rap and this is just the beginning. His willingness to denounce codes, rituals, habits of the French bourgeoisie, and share his life’s vision and feelings, urges him to write and rap in the language he loves, English. At the age of 16, he met Kip, beatmaker and DJ, who became his close friend. At the same time, he met Tim, beatmaker as well. Sharing the same passion and same ideas, E.D.Y. and Kip&Tim decided to start working together in 2007. August 2009: Concert at Megeve (France) October 2009: Concert at La Loco (Paris, France) September 2010: Single “I’m Here” on iTunes, Amazon and main digital music stores. October 2010: Single “Playtime In Paris” feat. Ill Skill in stores. Kip&Tim produces almost entirely E.D.Y.’s 1st album: expected release EARLY 2011.

JIN

Jin Akanishi had fans lining up in droves outside MTV’s Times Square studio recently, and you may have never heard his name before, but that’s why we do what we do here at Buzzworthy, we school you on cool people. You’re welcome.

Jin Akanishi is big in Japan.  And not just like your weird neighbor that wears a shirt that says that.  Jin is actually big in Japan.  As a former member of the huge J-pop group KAT-TUN, he already had a ton of fans when he began his solo career in 2010. Within a year, Jin has sold out his first North American solo tour, “Yellow Gold Tour 3010.”

MTV Iggy caught up with Jin Akanishi when he was in New York for a secret three-song performance and a round of fan-questions Q&A. You can catch the whole thing through the link below.

+ Watch Jin Akanishi perform “Bass Go Boom,” “Oowah” and “Yellow Gold” Live In NYC.

Fabolous – You Be Killin Em

Posted by: Scott

FABOLOUS

Fabolous scored a bit hit, “Can’t Deny It,” right out of the gate in 2001, instantly establishing himself as a rising East Coast rap star, the song’s combination of street-savvy toughness and pop crossover appeal representative of the rapper himself. Streetwise and hardened yet young and graced with poster-boy looks, the Brooklyn rapper (born John Jackson on November 18, 1977) was one of the first East Coast MCs to embrace the bling mentality of the South as well as the gangsta swagger of the West Coast, all the while incorporating a subtle undercurrent of pop-rap into his music.

He was among the first of a new breed of New York City rappers, later and most notably to include 50 Cent, who were able to cross over well among multiple markets without losing street credential. His youth was key, but so was his bravado, and when Fabolous could balance this persona optimally and find himself a production formula to fit, commercial success resulted.

His breakthrough single, “Can’t Deny It” — (a Rick Rock production featuring a 2Pac sample and a Nate Dogg feature, as well as a catchy hook) — preceded his debut album, Ghetto Fabolous (2001), and generated quite a bit of buzz.  The album also featured production work by the Neptunes, but only managed one other single, “Young’n,” which failed to match the success of “Can’t Deny It.”

When Fabolous returned with his sophomore album, Street Dreams (2003), he capitalized on his initial renown, racking up three major hits: “Trade It All,” “Can’t Let You Go,” and “Into You” — the latter two breaking into the Top Five of Billboard’s Hot 100.  Later in 2003, More Street Dreams, Pt. 2: The Mixtape hit stores just in time for the holiday season. Comprised of various street-level recordings originally released on mixtapes, this compilation didn’t spawn any hits, but it did reaffirm Fabolous’ hip-hop credentials in the wake of his string of pop crossover singles. The following year brought with it another album, Real Talk (2004), which didn’t offer any major pop crossover hits (“Baby” was a minor one) yet did boast a monster Just Blaze production, “Breathe,” which further shored up Fabolous’ hip-hop credentials.

The young rapper took most of 2005 and 2006 off, and shortly before the scheduled release of his next album, in late 2006, he made headlines when he was shot in the leg and subsequently charged with weapons possession (police found two guns in the car that transported him to the hospital). Def Jam — which signed Fabolous after sending Musiq to Atlantic in a unique trade situation — released From Nothin’ to Somethin’ (2007). The album debuted at number one on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart (number two overall) and spawned a series of singles, including the Top Ten hit “Make Me Better” featuring Ne-Yo. Two years later the hit single “Throw It in the Bag” would land on his album Loso’s Way, a loose, conceptual full-length inspired by the film Carlito’s Way. In 2010 he released There Is No Competition 2: The Grieving Music, a “concept mixtape” which aimed to bury rival rappers.

Bobby V. – Words

Posted by: Scott

BOBBY VALENTINO

Born in Mississippi but raised in Atlanta, smooth R&B crooner Bobby Wilson (also known as Bobby V) had a hard time convincing his skeptical parents that the music business was the place for him. When the 16-year-old Wilson hooked up with the Organized Noize Productions team, his parents knew he was serious and that his dream of a record deal was entirely possible.

With a group of friends, he formed Mista, a Boyz II Men-styled singing group that made some waves with their single “Blackberry Molasses.” The group’s self-titled album appeared in 1996 but failed to match the single’s success. A second, unreleased album was recorded with producer Timbaland’s help but management problems split the group and Wilson decided to focus on college. After earning his degree in 2003, he returned to demo work. One of his demos ended up in the hands of Ludacris, who made Wilson the first R&B singer in the rapper’s DTP (Disturbing tha Peace) crew. The sultry “Slow Down” announced the singer’s rebirth as a DTP member in early 2005 and soon became a BET and radio favorite. As the ballad was landing on numerous schools’ prom ballots, Def Jam/DTP released his self-titled debut, a Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart-topper. Special Occasion equaled that success in 2007, yet Wilson left his label on good terms and aligned with EMI. His first album with EMI, titled The Rebirth and released through his boutique label, Blu Kolla Dreams, was released in February 2009 and featured productions from longtime collaborators Tim & Bob, as well as Carlos McKinney and Raphael Saadiq. Wilson was known as Bobby Valentino until a legal settlement was reached with a British Bobby Valentino.
