LOCKOUT RECORDS BRINGS “MAFF TEST” and “JON WAIN” TO THE GLOBAL ATTACK MIXTAPE SERIES.

Posted by: Scott

 

LOCKOUT RECORDS

From a less fortunate life all the way to a successful music career, the last few years have been an amazing adventure for IL mc professionally known as MAFF TEST. Maff always knew that the music business would make way in his life for as long as he could remember. Unlike many young adults growing up less fortunate in a single parent home, TEST would never allow this type of stigma to slow him up from what his ultimate goal was and that is to make a name for himself as a recording artist and songwriter.

When asked the details of the hood or city he was from, TEST simply states that he was from “Harvey” and then tells

Maff Test

reporters to do their own research and be the judge. We found Harvey to be a poverty stricken suburban city of 3 or 4 projects, corrupted law enforcement, complete with gang and drug pollution. Later in life, TEST’s would be nicknamed YOUNG HARVEY, since he is the first to represent their city by “putting it on the map.” While he doesn’t talk much about his painful early years, fans learn about his childhood as his struggles are often expressed through his songs.

In the early days of rap, TEST wrestled with the transition from the streets to the music industry, although it was obvious right from the start, he had a way with words. MAFF was not at first inclined to choose music, “its a gift i was chosen to be given”. Hustling simply to survive, he sought the few extras in other income producing forms that he believed he could not obtain working at a 9 to 5, hard work and risk here & there. Before long, he was addicted to the fast life, one that provided not only for himself, but for his family as well. But, his family and friends observed his incredible ability to create, not only a verse here and there, but richly filled complete songs with very little effort.

With critics saying his skills are beyond equal to many of today’s acts, he is a true lyricist delivering incredible narration of not only the streets but night life and plenny more. He combines pain and struggle through clever metaphors fueled by raw energy and confidence. To quote TEST: “I bring forth significant realism and add in a sense of security that demonstrates I’m not afraid to be myself. People accept you as you are, not some made up image that appears as something you’re not.

After moving to Atlanta a year ago and benefiting from the progressive flow of the rap scene with help from the likes of DJ Khaled on Big Bizness; Volume 1, Test is back adding and multiplying his buzz with his second mixtape, Big Bizness; Volume 2 and the message is clearly one that everyone can relate to: “It don’t come like that”.

Currently on tour with stops in The Bay Area, Ohio, Indiana, Jacksonville and New York, Maff Test is on a mission to make his sound known, which he describes as well rounded and versatile enough to reach a broad audience. “You may hear one song that sounds completely different than another song. My music is like gumbo,” a well rounded variety.

jon wain

The credits or lack thereof for producer John “Jon Wain” Frazier shed little to no light on what this creative genius is more than capable of. Born the oldest son to a mother struggling to find her way in a southern suburb of Chicago, Frazier was inspired by an uncle at an early age to explore the world of music. As he grew, he dedicated more and more time to the seriousness of his undiscovered talent. By his teens, he wanted to become a singer and decided to form a trio, which caught the attention of his close family and friends. His first attempt at a professional singing career didn’t come until after high school, when a local independent label signed John and his then group “Kwiet Storm” to a recording deal, during which time the group shot two music videos and recorded an album which was prepared for a national release. Aside getting radio play and national exposure for their music video, in 2001 Frazier served the label with his letter of resignation from any dealings with the trio for personal reasons. Shortly after regrouping from the breakup, Frazier decided to turn his musical creativity to the production side of the industry. It was 2-3 years of trial and error for the perfecting of his craft as a music producer when the name “Jon Wain” was given to him by one of his rap artists. He has since worked with countless local and professional acts (none to credit), none of which has had the consistency to take him to the next stage in his career. Realizing that there are more ways to break into the industry than through the “front door”, he decided to take the opportunity given to him by a former friend to compose music for the “Oprah Winfrey Show”. Frazier signed a deal with Harpo Productions in the Spring of 2005 and has had countless spins on the show. Today he’s being offered commercial spots for “Mc Donald’s” and the “Pillsbury” companies. At the age of 26, John is far beyond his talent years and on his way to becoming the production powerhouse he’s longed to be. With styles and inspirations coming from influences such as Rodney Jerkins, Dallas Austin, Warren Campbell, and Rich Harrison to name a few, Frazier is a force to be reckoned with and well deserving of his rightful place in the music industry.

THE GLOBAL ATTACK MIXTAPE SERIES WANT TO EXTEND A WARM WELCOME TO “JAHN Q. PUBLAQ”.

Posted by: Scott
HipRoc-SoulRag: New Wave, New Genre 

JAHN Q.

Music’s new born genre, HipRoc-SoulRag, shows generations today, creativity at it’s’ best. For 2 years and counting, New Jersey artist, Jahn Q. Publaq compiles a collaboration of new age hits with old school classics, blending the familiar sounds of icons; Biggie Smalls, Jimmie Hendricks, Bob Marley, and Sam Cook paying homage to pioneers who inspire him to begin this new wave that supporters follow.
“I am paying my dues like any other artist only in a different way,” Jahn Q. Publaq said.

According to Publaq, the mixture of hip-hop, rock & roll, R&B/soul, and reggae, taps into the four main foundations of music, each exhibiting the makeup of today’s music. Music heads that tend to have an unsatisfying taste in search of a little more to fulfill a musical urge are now able to hear the familiar sounds under one category, all the while receiving a message many can relate to.

JAHN Q. PUBLAQ

The title HipRoc-SoulRag is complex within itself, but gives vivid insight of the artist, Jahn Q. Publaq. Explaining how each genre is a part of who Publaq is as an artist expressing his understanding and passion of music.

“HipRoc-SoulRag explains who I am. I have a Hip-hop swagger, Rock star mentality, Soul in my blood, Reggae in my history,” Jahn Q. Publaq said.

While music constantly evolves, the message still remains the same. Publaq tells the only story he knows best by simply calling it as he lives it, translating his message into a universal language of music. Lyrically expressing his continuous internal and external growth through everyday issues can be witnessed. Publaq touches on topics far from your typical signed artist, portraying an image they really do not live. Focusing on ways to get signed is far from Publaq’s list of goals, but paving his own way to success is his only plan.
“Many artist feed into focusing on what gets them signed. Not me!” Publaq stated. “Looking at the top artist of today such as the Jay-Z’s and Kanye West’s and date back to their path of success, they made a path of their own,” Publaq added.

Now with the Internet as one of the top places to market, Publaq’s new genre can be heard on all popular sites, from Facebook to his own website titled,  thatsmyq.net

THE PRYDE LANDZ REGIME

. Publaq is now updating his supporters on the latest with Hiproc-soulrag and Pryde Landz.

Police say the 32-year-old deejay, born Corey McGriff, was found dead with a gunshot wound to his chest. No arrests have been made.

Rising to the on-air ranks after starting as an intern, DJ Megatron began his career at New York’s WKRS-FM, better known as Kiss FM, where deejays remembered him on the air and online Sunday.

He also worked at what was then Boston’s Hot 97.7, or WBOT-FM, and at Philadelphia’s The Beat, or WPHI-FM, according to a bio on his MySpace site.

In recent years, he’s appeared on BET’s popular “106 & Park,” where his “What’s Good” spots took him onto the streets to ask bystanders about topics ranging from sports to “The Five Elements of Hip-Hop.” Viacom Inc.-owned BET had no immediate comment.

Sometimes known as Mega or Mega McGriff, the deejay also appeared in movies including 2005’s “State Property 2,” starring Roc-A-Fella Records co-founder Damon Dash and rappers Beanie Sigel and N.O.R.E., formerly Noreaga.

A father of three, DJ Megatron also devoted time to charitable events on Staten Island, his manager said.

What is the Global Attack Mixtapes Series in a Nut shell?

Posted by: Scott

The Global Attack Mixtapes Series is a newly launched music entrainment source destined to take compilation-style recordings to yet unseen worldwide heights – and beyond. The Series was created by entertainment and business impresario Elevated Scott (Scott McDowell); since its conception, Scott and his company Elevated Entertainment Solutions, LLC.

The creative direction and concept of Global Attack Mixtapes is a first of its kind, a pioneering effort for hip hop music worldwide. Scott wanted to take an outside the box approach to the traditional mixtape concept, which is exactly how this series came together. When one thinks of Mixtapes, they think of DJ’s dropping crazing sounds and voice drops, then mixing and scratching. Traditionally mixtapes of this design target an underground audience, not a mix of established Top 40 artists or unsigned indie up-and-comers from all over the world. Global Attack Mixtapes changes that landscape immediately.

Elevated Scott likes to call the series a “HYBRID” of 2 popular music brands: compilation series “NOW THAT’S WHAT I CALL MUSIC”, and the most downloaded mixtapes in the world – Coast 2 Coast Mixtapes. Global Attack Mixtapes takes the international commercial appeal of “NOW THATS WHAT I CALL MUSIC” brand and blends it with the aggressive grassroots marketing of Coast to Coast. Both ideas together create an unmatched framework of sound, creativity, and global marketability.

The Global Attack Mixtapes Series prides itself on worldwide commercial appeal, which separates it from traditional mixtape outlets. Tracks within its catalog feature major American recording artist Rza, Jadakiss, Kid Capri, Gucci Mane, Styles P, Naughty by Nature, Wu-Tang Harlem 6, and Cory Gunz; they’re joined by various emerging artist from such locations around the globe as Belgium, Paris, Tokoyo, United Kingdom, Korea, and Kawait, with more from United States and beyond getting joining this series daily! It may only be a matter of time before the ambitious Global Attack series is comprised of at least 1 artist from every city in every country around the world.

The executives behind The Global Attack Mixtapes Series considers each contributing artist a partner with the project, for the viral marketing campaign to be successful it is imperative each artist uses all available tools to help build awareness of Global Attack Mixtapes.

Elevated Scott says, “I think to cover every surface of the universe, as we all know things always work better when we work together. Global Attack Mixtapes A&R and Account Executives are scouring the Internet through various social network sites and industry relevant sites – Reverb Nation, Sonic Bids, Facebook, Myspace and Twitter – looking for serious artists that are ready to take their music to the next level. When you treat the entertainment industry as a business you will get business results. It’s called show business, not show fun.”

The Global Attack Mixtapes Series will release a new volume the first Friday of each month, digitally distributed through Island Def Jam Digital; marketing and promotion for the release handled by Elevated Entertainment Solutions LLC and Entaprise Entertainment. The official blog site for Global Attack –  www.International-HipHop.com – reached over 110 countries the first two and half months after its initial launch, and growing rapidly daily.

The official website www.GlobalAttackMixtapes.com includes a built in social network for fans to become frequently-returning users. While there they can interact with one another, read monthly newsletters, post in Forums,  an exclusive mp3 player, all with instant Twitter and Facebook access for instant connection to their other favorite online social networks.

The Global Attack Mixtapes has already caught the attention of many notable industry heavyweights, and its rapid increase in press suggests it will not be long before this series becomes a household name around the world!

Global Attack Mixtapes pays each artist placement quarterly royalty payments through a wire transfer by means of a 60/40 split through a royalty and distribution agreement in favor of the artist. Each artist with a tracks placed will be paid a .60 percent of sales per track placed per unit sold.
