Double Vision is #Flyah



To those who meet them, hip hop artists Jarred and Johnathan Lindsay, better known as Mackamillion and Mr. Mackmore, present a Double Vision, and not just because they are twins. Their group is DV, short for Double Vision, and their music captures a bold vision of both simplicity and intellectual intensity. The vision is unmistakable in their latest EP, (Ra)w Form. Mackamillion explains that “Raw form is about finding the God in you or the Creator within yourself.”
Even the title’s spelling, (Ra)w, has deeper meaning: that the process of creating anything, be it music, money, or even another being, starts from the same source, the raw energy that permeates the whole universe, known by some as God, or love, or universe, or Amen Ra, aka the Egyptian Sun God. And Ra, explains Mr. Mackmore, is “a primordial sound which holds a vibration of creation.”
The duo hail from Venice, CA, and have spent most of their years shuffling back and forth between the midwest and west coast.
And they’ve been making rhymes before they were out of their Underoos and shaking up hip-hop stereotypes ever since. “When we started, it was the bling era of hip-hop,” explains Mr. Mackmore, “so we were different from the norm.” Their “ahead-of-our-time style” has been magnetizing audiences by addressing issues of the common folks, a far cry from the typical “iced out jewels” and drug dealers stories of the notorious past. It was in '08 that they released the independent full-length, "No Explanation!" Two years later they dropped their label debut "Bifocal," an EP released on No Sleep Records. Now, with the release of (Ra)w Form, they have simplified their name (DV) as well as their music. Simplified or not, DV consistently holds ultimately to just one vision: to make music that is, as Mackamillion describes it, “innovative and creative, and made for those who actually have a brain."

CHECK OUT GEM - FLYAH EXLUSIVE INTERVIEW

GEM is to headline the Los Angeles Power Women Summit in December, bringing this new style of medical-music to the masses. She has been able to make use of her time in isolation: perfecting her EP, creating a YouTube channel and working on a plethora of collaborations with other global artists. The new single, If I’m Honest, is arguably the first of its kind. It has been specifically produced in the key of B. The musical note B is associated with the crown chakra, the 7th chakras in the Buddhist tantric system. Buddhists believe that by listening to music in this key, corresponding to the crown chakra, it can heal and awaken the listener, helping to release stored negative energy and energetic blockages in the body.

Michael Coleman Is back with another Anthem!

  WE HAD A CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH MICHAEL COLEMAN, READ WHAT HE HAD TO SAY ABOUT HIS MUSICAL JOURNEY!   Michael Coleman, where are you from and what's it like in your hometown and how did you get the nickname "The Metropolitan Cowboy"?   I was actually born and raised in San Diego, California.  San Diego is just an awesome town although like everywhere else in California, it costs a fortune to live there.  My nickname, “The Metropolitan Cowboy” actually comes from a television project I was doing a few year’s back. I wrote and produced an adult-oriented sketch comedy show and since I was always dressed with a cowboy hat on and looked metrosexual we decided that should be the name of the show and my brand and I have been called that ever since.   How long have you been songwriting and where do you find the inspiration?   I’ve been writing since I was a kid, however I didn’t decide to take it seriously until I had a milestone birthday , I won’t tell you which one and it wa
