His musical prospects were hampered by a life of crime, which eventually caught up with him when at age 21 when Mynature was sentenced to 6 years in prison. Determined to turn his life around Mynature turned to rap.
Over this EFX produced track Mynature proclaims the he is rap personified, a massive statement that he can back up with his trademark wordplay, lyricism and flow. On Mr Is Rap he poses the question "why so many wack rappers are getting airplay when all they talk about is money and clothes or they rap abut a lifestyle that isn't true to themselves". Seeing the demise of Hip Hop and its culture, he proclaims himself to be its savior in effect saving hip-hop from itself as his superheroesque alter ego Mr. Is Rap.
Upon his release and following a chance meeting with EFX and Ben "Billionaire Ben" Wynter from Unstoppable Music Group, Mynature burst onto the scene when he started his Mini-Mondays series. This saw him release a video every week for 9 weeks to critical acclaim. The Myni-Mondays series secured Mynature roughly 200,000 Youtube views in 9 weeks, whilst the likes of SEMTEX (1Xtra), SHORTEE BLITZ (Kiss), 279 (Choice FM), ANGUS BATEY (Guardian newspaper) and more tipped him as one to watch.
MYNATURE "MR IS RAP" will be released by UNSTOPPABLE MUSIC GROUP on the 23rd June 2013

If you have been keeping tabs on music industry news recently it will have been hard not to notice the attention Music Gateway has received. There is much anticipation and support across the board (including an April feature in Music News)for their much needed global platform which stimulates new revenue from existing masters and makes it easy for everyone to A&R their own projects or for management and labels to tap into new talent and work their roster.
"I'm not going to lie, it's been tough! What with the downturn in the global economy, IT development hurdles, investment seeking and a number of barriers to overcome to get the company into this position, it fills me with great pride and joy that we are now ready to fully launch. This isn't some simple brochure website or another social media platform, no, it's got focus, it's functional with purpose, it's simple yet delivers features like file transfers & electronic payments, all geared towards supporting your career development and generating work opportunities for both individuals and companies alike." explains Founder & Managing Director Jon Skinner LinkedIn.
Jon spent 26 years in the Music Industry gaining a wealth of knowledge and experience from being a DJ, producer and record label owner to working closely with international artists and running his own independent record store in the '90s hay days.
"I was in a good place to bring to the table what I felt, was a much needed business platform and saw a huge gap in the market. Music Gateway was developed by my in-house IT team, not by some outsourced techies trying to second guess what the industry & musicians may want. Music Gateway connects all the creative roles, allowing them to work, get hired, paid and collaborate on the global stage."
Jon goes on to explain that there are a host of websites offering a wide range of distribution, social media for music, such as Soundcloud and ReverbNation, licensing / sync portals and other Artist-to-Fan services, all of which deal with the end recording or end user. What is clearly different about Music Gateway, is that it is strictly Business 2 Business; it provides a service for people during the creative process and a development / project stage for any recording, person or company.
"Content is King"Jon states. The Music Business isn't some sugar-coated industry, it is hard work and to be successful, you need a lot more than just talent. Music Gateway will certainly improve your chances of making the right connections and reward you financially for your hard work.

'Kiss The Fire' which is described as neither an EP nor a mixtape, shows L Marshall's true self as an artist as he gives this project away to his fans as a gift. The singer/rapper/songwriter, who has written for the likes of Cheryl Cole, Loick Essien and co wrote as well as featured on Wretch 32's 'Tracktor', demonstrates his ability to write captivating songs most specifically 'I.L.Y' 'Live All The Way' and 'Fire'. You can understand why this is more a project as it allows L Marshall to experiment with different sounds. The track 'Kiss The Fire' has a strong dub step sound and 'Gas Man' has an edgy rock vibe to it while the rest of the project as a collective is almost split in two, with the first half having more rap leading to more singing and softer beats towards the end of the project. 'Focus'brings a soulful and orchestral feel to the project making it one of the standout tracks on the project as L balances rapping and singing on the track exquisitely. 'Kiss The Fire' shows off L Marshall's skills as the versatile artist he is with this exciting project.

Over the past 12 years, Jon Chambers and Bob Bhamra have created 50 miniature electronic space loops as DATA 70. Previously only available as a much loved series of limited edition 7” vinyl’s, totalling three volumes. The Complete Sessions brings this
To listen to the album, follow the link:
Jon and Bob have been friends for a very long time. Age six, they first collaborated in Mrs Harbut's music lessons by miming the recorder and ignoring any technical musical tuition whatsoever.
These beginnings mutated into an early teens' obsession with mod culture. A tender age meant clubs, pills and scooters were out. Walking up Maidenhead High Street in dog-tooth, owning the best 7" record collections in town and posing down alleyways in Slough were definitely in.
Musical activity took the form of DIY cassettes using homemade instruments and a lyrical fixation on girl groups, wallpaper shops and dinner ladies. Other shared activity included the BIFF! BANG! POW! and Last Orders fanzines.
Jon later went on to release numerous singles, EPs and three albums with the band SUNRAY and also founded the Strawberry Recording Co. label.
Bob, meanwhile, developed a fever for knocking out House and Drum and Bass twelve's and recently established West Norwood Cassette Library and WNCL Recordings imprint.

DJ/PRESS (LINK NOT FOR PUBLICATION)
They say Hip Hop is something you live, not something you do. Rediculus, born Todd Dahn, is the perfect example of that saying. Born in the early '70s, he has lived with hip-hop in his blood his whole life. Through his talent he now brings it to life in his tracks, which are steadily building up steam and popularity and the rebirth of "real hip-hop".
2013 has started off with a bang, seeing Rediculus release two smash singles; 'Off the Turnbuckles' feat J57, Venoumous2000, Fdot1 and El Gant and 'Lets Go' feat. FDot1 and put out his first of many instrumental projects, Dirty Concrete, presented by Kevinnottingham.com. There's also a few singles with Red Pill on the horizon, and projects with Nutso, Ruste Juxx, Verbal Kent, The Day Laborers, Big Dutty Deeze, Pat Starr, Rich Malone and more instrumental projects.
Regardless of who he's making the beats for, it's not hard to say you'll be hearing a lot of music from Rediculus this year and in 2013. For production inquires please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow on Twitter @Rediculus @KGB_Productions.
