Earwaxx Sessions week 14 Channel Zero and Horror Fam

words by Drew Spence

 

The energizer showcase keeps showing and we like who shows up

 

In a previous post [Located here] I went in to detail about why it is important to put rappers over your music- more important than trying to sell a beat to someone you don’t know for chump change. Working on a career starts with working in the field you have an interest in. It’s an old saying (maybe not that old since I stole it from Griffin Avid) that

 

“Whatever you want to do for money, you will first do for free.”

 

It’s a simple truth that you cannot claim to do something, and even be good at something you have never done. But that’s what we, as hobbyists, do too often. We say we are producers– yet we haven’t produced anything or anyone. Moving on from semantics and word-definitions we touch the reality of your resume.

 

Presume to resume from you resume

 

You can create a nice logo or banner for your website. You can write a nice bio that tells the world how great you are. What counts is what you can do. What you can do is backed up by what you have done. What you have done is what ends up on your resume. Yes, before you get a career, you get the job. Before you get the job, you’ve shown an ability to do the job. That’s your portfolio. That’s your catalog. That’s the show your work part of the answer.

Dox_Amillion Opens up

Last night was week 14 of the ongoing showcase Earwaxx Sessions. [Read the opening blog post here]. The line up included a hard-rocking metal band called Go Deep and the rap collective Horror Fam as Channel Zero and Swerve Boyz. Horror Fam is a deep roster of artists that center in Amityville New York. I came across them a few years ago by their manager and mentor Bone. They have dropped numerous mixtapes, videos and pretty much rock out as an army.

Horror…Hs….

The forming up formula

 

They also figured it out. – How to crowd the stage with friends and fam, but make it work by everyone knowing the songs and performing as one mass. That energy translates to the crowd and they put on an awesome show. The Earwaxx Sessions continues to be a party that we are all invited to. More than that, they have become a community conscious organization that puts on food drives for the holidays. They have been featured in the paper (Long Island’s Newsday) and the their sponsor list continues to grow week by week. Connect and get involved here.

 

Connecting the Dots….

 

So how does this all relate? After their show, while they were making their way through the crowd. One of the artists said ~ You know we did some of them songs at your studio right? Yeah, I was reminded that I have done something– that I am connected to a large body of artists that are putting in work. It’s really all the stuff I’ve done before that makes the doings of tomorrow easier. That why I say Pursue a place and be patient for a paycheck. No one wants to pay for potential or possibilities. The current state of the industry is Risk Management. No development, no investing, no betting or hoping that someone pans out. You need to think the same way and start your journey today. Get involved with your local talent and be a part of what’s happening. For Long Islanders, Earwaxx Sessions is a perfect launch point and networking system. Find your resource and become a resource.

EarWaxx Sessions Week 4 recap

EarWaxx Sessions Week 4 recap

                        Going…going…STRONG! And a legend surprises all.

words by Drew Spence

I would never say that I hate on something, but I am a skeptic. I mean, when news about the EarWaxxSessions first hit my Editor’s desk I said “Every damn week?! These kids crazy. It’s Long Island; you can’t get kids offa that couch and outta that house EVERY week. Nah, son, they need to do this joint monthly.” I was wrong and I can admit it.

Crowd still strong? Yes.

Still enthusiastic? Yes.

Still well-organized and starting on time? Yes.

Tight Acts? Yessir

 

So, now that I see this engine has got no quits in it, let’s recap, rewind and reflect on week 4 for Long Island’s freshest artist/producer/talent showcase. The night opens with hosts @ChadLaw & @Rah_licious welcoming the crowd at exactly 10pm. [Yep, they be starting on time] After a few barbs and well-deserved attention to the lovely Rah_licious, ChadLaw brought out Fallout Shelter for the opening producer showcase part. Conflict of interest aside (ahem), it was a live hybrid-set of beats, bumpers and skits. The energy of rap arrived right after as Keez, YRA, CASTLE HEAD and the crowd that is Frank Buick by himself, tore up the stage.  Shaun Sutton got the ladies going with some sultry R&B. A.T.E BOYZ and AMA rounded things off before a surprise appearance by rap veteran and Juice Crew member Craig-G dropped his science for a new generation that’s more trappy than backpacky. It was an angry old man showing showmanship and why you still want a few veterans active in every war. Now that they’ve added guest appearances to the mix, there’s no telling what you’ll get next week.

Why should you care?

Every artist and entertainer needs a place to show out and the EarWaxxSessions is providing a dope atmosphere by having a dope crowd assemble to enjoy and support good music. If you was thinking of doing it, get it together and do it there. Finally, we have a growing spot that combines generations, genres and future greats. Make Tuesday more than the day that follows Monday. They have.

 

Born-on-date a little early? Don’t know as much about hip hop as you should? Read into the history and career of rap veteran Craig G. There’s a lot more than the legendary verse on Marley Marl’s posse cut “The Symphony” and his own rap classic “Dropping Science”. Oh and if you are a fan of those battle rap leagues, this guy was doing it when it was raw.
