Today Brian welcomes two very special guests, along with Wayne D. CEO Come Get It Records and Scott Guiterrez of Gute Productions and Princess Blue Publishing, here to Debut EP "Staring Back At Me" is the very talented MARUSHKA. Inspired by a colorful range of classic songstresses, Nina Simone, Janis Joplin and contemporary influences like The Black Keys, Amy Winehouse and Mos Def, Los Angeles born artist, Marushka is quickly distinguishing herself as a versatile force of musical innovation.
With writing skills that belies her years, the debut EP "Staring Back At Me", stuns and surprises, creating a unique style of combination Blues-Infused-Hip Hop, invigorating long beloved drum sounds with soulful bass lines, sultry vocals and alluring electronics. Head nods to the beat and hips bounce back and forth, but never at the compromise of compelling, poetically timeless lyrics.
Spending years barefoot on Hawaiian shores, strumming her grandmothers ukulele and later running rampant, adolescent wild, howling to her father's Pink Floyd, Marushka finally reached the rocky piers and monstrous steel of New York City at 18, heart broken and wallet busted, where she fell in love with her best friend's guitar.
Also joining us today legendary Hip-Hop Artist Binky Mack of All Frum Tha I. All Frum Tha I is comprised of well-known west coast hip-hop rap artists Binky Mack and Squeak Ru. All Frum Tha I stands for "All From Inglewood" and these proud Inglewood California residents and strong west coast style rap artists.
Fans of Binky Mack and Allfrumtha I will be able to cast their minds back to the mid-2000's when "The Black Republican" was an album title being promoted under Hoo-Bangin/Priority Records but, never saw the light of day after Hoo-Bangin and Priority parted ways. Binky Mack has now released "The Black Republican" as a free mixtape.
