This weeks ‘Featured Artist’ goes by the name of Marcus BLACK, a very talented rapper indeed from Manchester, United States. Lets just get straight to the point… dude has skills.
Here are a few tracks I personally liked and from listening to these you can hear for yourself that Marcus BLACK is very versatile.
TRACK 1: Scratch Tickets
TRACK 2: Vicious Circle
TRACK 3: Let You Go
Below is Marcus BLACKs bio and social network information
Props to Marcus BLACK, keep grinding!
Most artists hit their audiences in waves. They begin as a “diet” version of themselves and slowly break out of their shell as more money and acceptance receives them. MarcusBLACK does not observe this rule … or any others.
I am have added new page to the site ‘Featured Artist‘where I will pick 1 up n coming artist per week (rapper or singer) listen to their music and review it via this page absouletely FREE and all for the love of music. Doing this not only introduces me to new music and unsigned talents but also gives YOU as the artist some great exposure and the opportunity to reach out to a wider audience.
Whats The Benefits Of Becoming A Featured Artist?
- Great Exposure
- Your work reviewed and featured on my site for FREE
- Will add links to your personal website, Twitter, SoundCloud, YouTube, ETC
- All featured artists receive 1 FREE beat from the ‘beat store‘ (Leased License) Check ‘FAQ‘ for more information
TWITTER: Great for micro blogging and keeping in touch with your fans / followers, also good tool to use when promoting a new release.
FACEBOOK: I don’t have one myself but we all know facebook has somewhat taken over and there are millions of people signed up to it.
YOUTUBE: People like to see visuals it keeps them interested, Producers can put beats on YouTube but the viewer may become bored very quickly if you do not have a visual to go with it so make a little video for the next beat you upload or even better make some tutorials or vlogs (weekly or monthly) and keep people interested.
SOUNDCLOUD: I think everyone pretty much knows about this one now but in case you don’t SoundCloud is a great way to put your tracks out there and for people to directly comment on particular tracks leaving you with valuable feedback.
BANDCAMP: Similar to SoundCloud but not really. (LOL, if that makes sense) I would say check it out, a lot of people sleep on bandcamp but its a great tool to have.
NOTE: This is from a old thread (July 2010) on Future Producers.. I did not write this and to some extent agree with the information, so I copied and pasted for all to benefit.
To understand EQ and its intricacies you need hands-on experience, but to help you get started, here’s a table of general uses and the different ranges that EQ can affect. As every sound is different, though, these are necessarily very general guidelines…
Any apparent muddiness can be rolled off around 300Hz. Try a small boost around 5-7kHz to add some high end.
50-100Hz ~ Adds bottom to the sound
100-250Hz ~ Adds roundness
250-800Hz ~ Muddiness Area
5-8kHz ~ Adds high end presence
8-12kHz ~ Adds Hiss
Try a small boost around 60-120Hz if the sound is a little too wimpy. Try boosting around 6kHz for that ‘snappy’ sound.
As you can see my site is currently under construction having some re-designing done and changing things around a bit giving the site a fresh look for 2013 and overall making it easier to navigate. The “Home” page will eventually have a beat store installed where you can easliy and quickly purchase any instrumental of mine. I will also be giving away the odd FREE beat and custom drum kits.
If you subscribe you will be notified on all updates as they happen and this also ensures you dont miss a thing that happens on messybeatz.com
