Uk hip hop artist Dragg is bringing a sense of hearing and feeling to his music that most artist can’t envision.

When recently approached by Ms. Jazzy Ayer of Jaz PLR Promotions and asked if I mind posting one of her artist to the blogs, I thought, "cool, I love indie artist."  Once she explained to me that this young hip hop artist is also vision impaired, I thought this experience will be a bit more special.
  I have a theory that if you are forced to hear the musical creation with the heightened sense of hearing, listening and identifying sounds by ear, that the music will be formed into a more pleasant sound.  In this case I seemed to be right.
Who is this hip hop artist?  His title is Dragg.  Dragg is a young man, who has stayed in positive spirits and focused into completing his craft.  Drag is from the United kingdom via Johannesburg, South Africa.  Johannesburg is where this hip hop artist started in his rap roots.  Composing his lyrics in a way more satisfying to him, opposite the way that many of his favorite songs went astray, Dragg strives to uplift the spirit of his listeners.
According to the opinions of Dragg, one thing he noticed in his native Africa, was the need for music containing less violence.  Dragg seems to be troubled that in most of his favorite music, violence was the only option and everything great was just given to those with an aggressive, obnoxious attitude.  Dragg solution to this is exposing listeners to lyrics that demonstrate that there are struggles and how he approaches them and overcomes them.  The interesting thing about this artist is that his messages do not sound forced.  He understands how to melodically create a song.  He along with his production staff are creating excellent music.
Dragg is established and focused for and indie artist.  In September, 2009 Dragg was invited to join Project Feenix for a performance on The Sesh Stage at Freedom Festival in Hull. He has also made appearances on BBC Radio Humberside was with Sarah Burton and was broadcasted twice on Andy Comfort’s breakfast show. Alan Raw also invited Dragg into BBC Radio Humberside on 2 occasions in 2011 were he performed live in the studio on the Raw Talent Show.You can check out his sound @  or or or or or  or and understand what I mean when I say that Drag is very melodic.

 Dragg has just released a mixtape, and he would love it if you could check it out and review it for him.
It is called The Warm Up Vol .1, Check it out at .

Caught in the mix with twice "Band of the Year" winner, D.J. Anthony Provalone.

This week's Indie, D.J. is Anthony Provalone, a native of Buffalo, NY.  He's not your average joe, not your average D.J. either.  This D.J has simply paid his dues but he has sold stocks in himself, invested in himself, then bought himself as an entirety.  It might sound crazy but sometimes genius can take you there.  D.J Provalone makes mixes that range from your mixes that you'd hear in a high speed action movie fight scene, to the type of mix for vampire movies, skateboarding scenes, intense sport scenes, or eye opening clarity.  Though Anthony Provalone is Indie, he's no "new jack".  
D.J Anthony Provalone started off with the ambition to do a solo project but considered the difficulties of conducting business by himself, so he took on band mates.  With band mates comes selling percentages, so that's what he did.  Bands break apart when band mates have other priorities ahead of a band and so did this one.  So this D.J bought back the percentages and using his d.j skills, mixed each band mates parts to his satisfaction.  Believe it or not, this little adaptation done in the pursuit of happiness happen to work in this d.j's favor.

His mix CD " The First Time" was rated best of 1996 according to Night-Life music editor Kevin Hosey.  His single "Look" on the "Elevation of Depression's" CD,  was included on the "Buffalo Music Collective Vol.1". Also Mr. Provalone won the "Best New Artist" at the Buffalo Music Awards.  His single mix "Chigger" was included on "Buffalo Music Collective Vol. II".  
  Elevation of Depression won "Best Experimental Artist" at the WBNY local show music awards and was named "Best of Buffalo" for a second time, only this time in the category of Best Local Industrial Band".  Mr. Provalone also won Buffalo Music award for Top "Hard Core/Metal band".
His mixes, like most icon D.J.s of today, held fans attentions during the 90's all the way in to the 2000's.  This D.J is one of the coolest that I have met in a long time.  He not only mixes for show's where he opens for bands like Vast (Electra Records) and Twelve Rounds (nothing Records), but he also D.J.s mixes at weddings.
Being an indie d.j of a unique genre, starting in the 90's, a period where great music was being produced in massive amounts, he is still mixing it up, producing, recording artist and doing a solo band.  I'm on him to set up his band site and as soon as it's up, I'll have it posted here. Don't hesitate to contact this d.j and have him send you a sample via email, because he will.  D.J Anthony Provalone can be contacted for bookings or music samples @ .
