Art Morera has been pretty busy over the past few months. In December, he dropped 12:01Visual EP, days before Beyonce dropped hers with the same concept but with her LP. However, Morera did not stop there, he followed up 12:01 with his first LP entitled Around Midnight where you can purchased at iTUNES. Now Art Morera has delivered the first visual from Around Midnight and it’s for the song “Loud”. The visual mimics the vocals perfectly and fits the chilled smoker vibe that is set in the track. The song was already a stoned masterpiece produced by Mr. Nixon yet Kimber Vasquez, NikkiSiixx and YoungWildPanda perfected that with the video that resulted from it. Take a look at the video and if you haven’t already purchase Around Midnight, your ears will thank you.
BEAT ALERT! Miami Producer Nixon releases his first beat in his Club 50 Series, to bring in the new year. The Club 50 Series every Friday Night Nixon will release another beat from his very diverse catalog. ‘EPISODE ONE’ gives me a vibe from Sleepy Hollow mixed with Final Fantasy VIII ODIN search scene. I can only image what a talented artist is going to do with this beat.
Good evening Ladies and Gentlemen, Happy New Year. Club 50 is a project I will be starting in 2014 where every Friday, I will drop a new beat on my soundcloud to showcase my diverse beat catalog. This being the first one I decided to make something special today and started with a sample I’ve had in my crates since the beginning of my musical journey some 7 years ago. I appreciate the time you took to listen to this and I hope you like it. Thank you and God Bless.
What a way to illustrate an EP with a short candid film following a night in Art Morera’s life. By bringing us his EP 12:01. The thirteen minute visual takes you along with Art on a night to escape from reality. Playing out the five tracks from the EP. (TwentyFour) From hanging out with his friends in Coconut Grove to (Welcome Mat) daydreaming finding a bag of cash on his welcome mat, (Volume) then heading out to a hip-hop show. Then unwind at a lobby with beautiful b-roll of fish in an aquarium (Drown), and bringing a rose to his girl back home (Don’t Come Home).
Sick Production from iLLMurray (Mr.Nixon & Mydus) and what a great eye with direction from Kimber Vasquez behind the lens. Can’t wait for the EP’s official release on iTunes.
12:01 is a great listen! It’s hard to pick your ultimate favorite track, since all of the songs are unique, dope, brings a great vibe, and its different. iLLMurray brings out the best of Art Morera’s wordplay and confidence. From my favorite track to a little less favorite track will be Volume, Drown, TwentyFour, Don’t Come Home, and Welcome Mat. This order is still not right! Very hard to choose. Better yet why don’t you take a listen to Art Morera’s visual EP and don’t forget to HASHTAG #1200AM A THOUSAND TIMES!
Art Morera releases his second EP, MORERA. An instant free download when you click the cover art above. The 8 track project takes you on a journey through the realest lyricism, amazing production, and it rides through. Collaborations with producers Mr. Nixon, Draz, Kiko Haze, Yarlen, and Frank Sassone. Also, this is the second time Art has a feature from another artist, which was QuESt on their track called ANSWER MACHINES. All of the tracks are my favorites but if I had to chose it will most definitely be WORK, TOO WELL, ANSWER MACHINES, ON DECK and DOLLARS FOR DREAMERS.
