FDM

FDM, better known in the UK as Fun*dmental 03 were pretty much our version of B2K, consisting of Varren, Kyle and Jermaine, the group rose to prominence quite quickly, however recently not much had been heard, many felt that they were no longer performing, that is not quite the case, they are indeed patiently developing their brand after being signed to a major label in the states ‘Geffen Records’ (home to Mary J Blige and Wale to name a few) in conjunction with Ne-Yo’s label ‘Compound’.

A favourite of mine, Playground:

check this video out, they go to the Geffen exec to display their ability, amazing:

Seeing all this is great for me, I was just a kid listening to their tracks, watching their videos on TV, I was a fan without a doubt, their ability was so evident, they have personality, talent and the desire to do this.

Well done Geffen records for recognizing the ability and giving them the chance, and Good Luck to the boys, Compound (Ne-Yo’s label) and Da Works, their talent and hard work should ensure a bright future.

Sef – Need A Hero ft. Swiss

The former So Solid crew singer is back to claim his spot as one of the UK’s finest talents.

After creating a buzz with the single ‘Out of the Ghetto’, Sef has truly delivered with the follow up ‘Need a Hero’. Upbeat and definitely one to have the heads nodding, using a video game-sounding sample over a slick beat adding a few synths and strings, with the singer lacing the beat with his vocals, letting his damsel in distress know that he’s here to save her from her heartbreak. The addictive chorus just flows smooth as he sings:
“Girl You Need A Hero..Someone who is just like me, A Hero..Who can give you what you need, I’m just trying to show ya, Baby I’m the one for ya, I was sent just to love ya, I’m your Hero!”
Featuring the additional vocals of emcee Swiss (Also of So Solid fame) who from the sounds of it has stepped his game up, certainly giving the song more depth. ‘Need a Hero’ really stands out amongst the majority of the current commercial R&B songs in this country. Certainly a hit for Sef and the Music Kidz team who are back with a banger!!

..They are shooting a video for it very soon, Shout out to Shabz the professor, Sef and the whole of Musik Kidz, keep making those hits!!

Jay-Z signs Music Kidz to ROC Nation!!

This is big news people,

Music Kidz, consisting of producer Mr Shabz (who is the founder of Music Kidz) & former Reelist producer K1, emcee Swiss and singer Sef (the trio that were behind many of the So Solid Crew’s hits), have been working hard with their group, production team, label and movement.

Proof of their hard work has come when Sef himself recently announced that Music Kidz has signed to Jay-Z’s new imprint ROC Nation, this is big news for the scene and the country, it means our hard work and talents are being recognized and with such an array of talent here in the UK, it is the next step, it shows the progression we are making, recently Jay Sean signed to the one and only Cash Money Records (Home to none other than Lil’ Wayne).

The first release I’m looking forward to and have been waiting for a while is Sef and his album ‘Every Piece of Me’, after releasing ‘Out of the Ghetto‘ and the soon to come ‘Need A Hero‘, Sef has proven that he has a voice to match some of the best R&B singers out there, having already worked with the likes of platinum selling Robin Thicke on the track ‘Tonite‘, as a fan of music it is increasingly frustrating to not hear his material and his name being mentioned among the greats.

Also, Swiss, how can anyone forget his heartfelt flow on So Solid Crew’s smash ‘Broken Silence‘, Swiss then gave us ‘Cry‘, so the soon coming album ‘One In A Million’ is still antiscipated the Music Kidz are capable of classics so it is only right that they venture with ROC Nation (one of the most expensive labels created) with the legend Jay-Z himself to create more of their own history.
