Tom Robinson selected (Dark Matter Pt.2) Insult To Injury for his Mixtape which was aired last night on 6 Music : http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b07w1krp
I’m pleased because I initially thought the song was too deep a hip hop song, musically & lyrically for airplay! The song has no chorus, no hook & no gimmicks… Just straight up head nodding hip hop beats, samples, free thinking lyrics as well as organic cuts from DJ Tones…. forging a sound that’s sorely missed these days! Perhaps that’s why it got chosen.
It’s never about fame or making money, this music malarky, but now & then its good to be appreciated & played to a wider audience, wider than the underground hip hop scene can provide! The songs I’ve made with producer Crespo are musically very diverse, gathering momentum from indie, psychedelia, soul, funk & gospel genres, creating platforms for me to write original concepts & lyrics too… Our back-cat is purposfully radio-friendly. Gaining more exposure from 6Music highlights the chemistry we have & the accessibility of our songs.
The task at hand for myself is to continue on-line promotion on all social-media platforms, for Insult To Injury (Dark Matter Pt.2).
I’ve just set up a new Facebook page @ https://www.facebook.com/CrespoAndTheRemarkable1/
Sending links (including the Mixtape link) to music sites, mags & blogs for reviews… Along with finishing two video’s for my 7″ #vinyl that’s due to arrive in a few weeks & begin the campaign for that… with live performances along the way…. As well as writing new songs!
Creative, exciting & for-filling times ahead for this independent artist. 🙂
