Suicideyear: "James Prudhomme, better known as the artist Suicideyear, is an American electronic music composer, turntablist, and songwriter from Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Prudhomme rose to popularity with several unofficial remixes of artists like The Pack, Danny Brown & Three Six Mafia. In May of 2014, Prudhomme released his second mixtape titled “Japan,” a conceptual piece detailing the last 7 months of his life. The tape was applauded for its convergence of southern trap andmid late century minimalism. The track “cccxxv” was used by swedish artist Yung Lean for his single

“Hurt.” Shortly after Japan, Prudhomme was sought by Parisian artist Brodinski. Suicideyear released the single “Finale” on “Bromance #10” and “Don’t Worry” on

“Homieland Vol. 1.” on Brodinski’s Bromance label. He will be featured on Homieland Vol. 2 in 2016. Suicideyear has produced for the likes of Bones, OG Maco, Denzel Curry, Rome Fortune and Yung Lean among other vocalists. Suicideyear signed to Software Recording Co. in July of 2014 after Japan caught the ear of contemporary

artist and label head Oneohtrix Point Never. Along with the signing, Software announced the release of his debut EP titled Remembrance. The album was

written and produced between Florida and Louisiana reflecting on themes of love and loss against the backdrop of the deep American south, according to the label. The release was met with critical acclaim, portraying themes of melancholy and warmth and ended with a cover of My Bloody Valentine’s “When You Sleep.” Prudhomme is currently preparing his debut album which will be his first ambition to feature vocalists."

 

Craig Xen: "Our boy Adam 22 of No Jumper beat us for the breaking of Fifth-ward Houston emcee Craig Xen (but it’s all good, shout out to the No Jumper Podcast). The 24 year old rapper has been skyrocketing out of the underground and has aligned himself with other independent southern rap sensations like Pouya and Xavier Wulf. Craig Xen’s sound is a hard hitting trap flavored fire, similar to that of Waka Flocka Flame. “Untamed” and “Bare Flesh” are two of his hardest tracks, but he has a catalog of mixtapes including his latest release Waist Deep. Despite the lack of music videos, Craig Xen has climbed to the forefront of the underground scene and is continuing to grow towards his bright future." -One.Avenue TV
