Featured Artist *Maciej Smoreda*

FancyJLondon ©2015 All Rights Reserved This blog post is a bio feature representing rapper, singer/songwriter Maciej Smoreda 
  
FancyJ: “Hello Maciej; could you first before anything else tell me how to pronounce your name?” 

Maciej: “Sure, my name is pronounced Ma-Che. It means gift from God. 

FancyJ: “Your name is quite unique, what nationality did your name originate from?” 

Maciej: “I was born in lodz, Poland, it is a Polish name.” 

FancyJ: “That is impressive you are not American, yet your English is good?”

Maciej: “At the young age of 13, I moved from Poland to upper state NewYork not knowing any English at all, though I am proud to say I was able to pick it up quickly.”

FancyJ: “I must say I am not only intrigued by your name and your heritage, but also the video I saw of you hitting hard subjects like 9/11 with inspiring messages. Could you tell me what or whom inspired you to rap about such hard subjects, like 9/11.”

Maciej: “The 9/11 poem I wrote shortly after it happened. I was attending high school in NewYork. It was the first artistic positive message I ever wrote, at that time my hiphop was much different, mainly focusing on freestyle battling and murder rap in those days. Actually it became a huge turning point for me because I realized I could inspire people with my music.

  
FancyJ: “Did anyone close to you inspire you to get into music?”

Maciej: “Yes, in fact I owe it to a close friend of mine Michael Williams who does not rap, but writes poetry, I heard his 9/11 poem and was inspired to write my own version with my views. To this day I like his poem far more, and he likes mine far better…LOl! Since then he became a firefighter as well as partaking in multiple trips to Iraq and Afghanistan. I admire and respect him greatly. 

FancyJ: “Wow, he sounds like an amazing person, you know what they say here in our country; “You are the company you keep.” You know how to pick friends, that is a great quality to have.” Ok, If you could pick a famous artist you have great respect for, who would it be and why? 

Maciej: “Thank you for your compliments, as far as your question, It is hard to pick just one. I have always been a huge fan of Tupac and all the revolutionary talk at the end of his career same goes for Michael Jackson. That was an idol of mine since I was 5 years old. More recent artists that I have huge respect for are Hopsin, Logic, and McLemore. All very smart individuals, Independent thinkers and just aurora filled exuberant people. I can’t forget to mention Jim Morrison, that man was so ahead of his time he basically predicted “EDM” music in the 60’s, Hats off to Jim!”

FancyJ: “You really know your music, I agree those are some unforgettable people that taught us so much. So, tell me how did you choose your style of music? 

Maciej: “Guess it chose me when I was watching power rangers, Lol!” I love most music, though I can not sing to save my life or play any instruments, but I enjoy writing and expressing my thoughts in a way that makes people think more and hip hop was the perfect way for me to be able to do that.” 

  
FancyJ: “I have to say the Power Rangers comment took me by surprise? What did you mean by that?” ( For those of you reading who have no clue as to what we are talking about here is a link to explain: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power_Rangers )

Maciej: “Lol, I fell in love with hip hop at the age of 7 by watching The Power Rangers Show. The Black Power Ranger “STATIC” often broke out breakdancing, I thought to myself now that is hip hop!”

FancyJ: “So, at what age did you think you become enamored with music?”

Maciej: “I would say I have been interested in music, since I was a baby. Both my grandmothers sang in church choirs and in opera. I was quite fascinated with the passion in there voice and the feedback they would receive.

FancyJ: “It is amazing how influential music can be for all ages. Have you ever taken up lessons for an instrument?”

Maciej: “Yes, music is powerful. I actually took a lesson for one day on guitar and gave up. Tried again years later and only learned the basics of smoke on the water.” 

FancyJ: “I think we all fall victim to that, I too took classes on clarinet in school…hated it! 

Maciej: “Lol!”

FancyJ: “Can you tell me what you hope to accomplish by spreading your message filled lyrics? Do you believe that music has the power to change the way people think or feel in a positive way?” 

Maciej: “I just want to inspire people. It blows my mind that I already have inspired people in places I never been and around the world. It blows my mind.”I believe music is one of the most influential forms of art, ever. No matter what mood you are in, hearing a song with lyrics full of imagery and emotion can put you in whatever place the artists mind was in when they were writing it. It is the best form of story telling in my personal opinion. If you’re having a bad day and you put on a record like Tupac’s, it changes you automatically you instantly feel the positive vibration through your body, making you desire accomplishing something great.”

FancyJ: “I have to say I couldn’t agree more. I am sure we all have that specific singer or special album we enjoy, that pumps us up or motivates us.” 

  
Maciej: “I am happy you agree, yes it would be a dull world without music.” 

FancyJ: “Speaking of that, your lyrics are not even close to dull! Where do you draw your inspirational lyrics from?”

Maciej: “I draw my lyrics from personal experiences, as well as those close to me. One example is a song I created with Supa Russ, titled: ANSWERS. This song was one of the toughest and most emotional songs I have ever done, being that it was dedicated to our best friend that unexpectedly passed away earlier this year due to a heart attack at the young age of 26. Other songs I have written to show my point of view of world influences for myself and others that are relatable. Like the song titled: NICOTINE. I’ve been battling with nicotine addiction for over ten years, so that became my positive outlet in a negative struggle.”

FancyJ: “That is very inspiring for so many who have lost loved one’s and for those who battle addictions of all types.” I think your outlet is commendable!” 

Maciej: “I have been lucky in terrible situations, so for me this goes a lot deeper.”

FancyJ: “Yes indeed you have from what you told me privately, care to share any of them?” 

Maciej: “I was kicked out of high school, got in trouble, hustled a bit decided to put music on hold for while, then worked many different jobs from Walmart, Holister to running my own tree removal business. Finally up and moved to Florida in late 2011, I decided to buy an old graffiti’d school bus to move my things. My good friend and I drove it down with all my belongings and my pet snakes. The very first month in Florida, I was hit by a car going 65 mph. To my shock I didn’t have one broken bone and I was released from the hospital the next morning! I then moved my beautiful fiancé from NewYork to join me. I started to get serious about hip hop late last year when I had the pleasure of meeting BZK JOE (my producer/ also the top holding 3rd place breakdancer of Florida) we formed Affiliate’s and started making music!”

  
FancyJ: “You have quite an amazing story, and I am almost positive that people can relate to you. We all have a story and I am happy to share those stories with my readers. Who would you like to thank out there, for where you are today?”

Maciej: “I would like to thank my family, friends and my fiancé. Most of all my partner/producer BZK Joe who is my other half of affiliates. He pushes me all the time, couldn’t do it without him. Also, my fans from all over the world and people such as yourself FancyJ London for taking interest in my work.

FancyJ: “Thank you Maciej, it has been a pleasure getting to know you, but not wanting to get to know those snakes!” Lol!” So tell me, If you became the next rap icon, what would you do with your fame?”

Maciej: “I take it you are not a snake fan, Lol!” Well, If I became a rap icon I would build some community studios for kids to be able to make music where the resources are not available. If we can influence the youth in a positive way we can alter the future.” 

FancyJ: “That sounds great, you should start a campaign on Kickstarter for that! I guarantee you would reach the masses. Ok, last question, what do you think are your music life goals?” 

Maciej: “Music life goal is to make people think more. Respond not react. I think my lyrics convey that message. I want to show that anything is possible, if I couldn’t speak English at 13 years old then I can come up with complex lyrics, anyone can do it!” 

  FancyJ: “You are right about that, you can do just about anything if you put your mind, heart, and soul into it! 

 I am going to leave you with the video that inspired me to feature Maciej and want to say that my featured artists are all talented, but each have an incredible story. Everyone should be valued and appreciated from all four corners of the earth whether your famous or not! ~FancyJ London

Featured Artist~ JANANI

 FancyJLondon ©2015 All Rights Reserved
This blog post is a bio feature representing the Alternative Rock Band JANANI  
 JANANI is an alternative rock band from Orlando, Florida. The band was formed by Janani Vaidyanathan and Erick Campos in January of 2011. In early 2014, JANANI released their very first extended play titled, Three Step System EP. The Three Step System EP was produced by Brett Hestla, former member of Creed. 

  
  The EP spawned moderate success for the band, most notably with their hit single, “Where Was I?”. Kat Coffin of Examiner.com wrote, “Songs don’t get much catchier than ‘Where Was I.’ JANANI’s spunky vocals are full of attitude as they cascade over a steady walking blues rhythm…” and “[Janani’s] strong voice takes lyrical delivery beyond heartfelt to a more character driven place conveying toughness, anger, bitterness, passion and a host of other feelings…”. 

  JANANI released their hit single, Run (Pick Up The Gun), in May of 2015. Shortly after it’s release, the single won the Akademia Award for Best Alternative Rock song. ExposedVocals.com wrote, “[Run (Pick Up The Gun)’s] killer chorus latches itself in your memory after the first listen. It’s a well-crafted song that acts as a wonderful homage to the classic rock sound but also just a good piece of songwriting in itself.” 

  
Their music has been heard on radio stations such as CKCU 93.1 FM in Ottawa, Canada, KISS 104.7 FM and Orlando’s own XL 106.7 FM. It has also been featured in DIRECTTV’s documentary, Gone Until December. JANANI’s latest single, Run (Pick Up The Gun), will be the theme song of the upcoming television series, Hit Women.

     

  From over two-hundred competing bands, JANANI was selected to compete in the top 8 for the Hard Rock Rising Orlando competition, where they performed in front of a panel of judges including Chris Kirkpatrick of NSYNC. Of over 70 acts in the Tampa Bay Acoustic Music Festival at the Hard Rock Cafe Tampa, JANANI walked away as one of five bands selected to be a Hard Rock Energy Ambassador.

  
  JANANI is currently number 1 on ReverbNation Alternative Orlando charts and collectively has over 36,000 fans spanning over 5 different social networks.

  
SHOUTOUT Straight from JANANI ~ Sending big love ❤️ to our Manager Ranelle Golden, all our fans, and of course FancyJ London, YOU ROCK!
Thank you, JANANI …..OH, by the way I am a major fan myself! ~FancyJ

Featured Artist *DJ Ross Tha Boss* 

FancyJ London©2015 (All Rights Reserved) This is a blog interview representing The Producer/DJ, Ross Tha Boss. 

It is my great pleasure to introduce you to DJ Ross Tha Boss! DJ Ross is a young lady with an extreme passion for beats! She mesmerizes you with her powerfully eclectic take on Electronic Dance Music. Upon speaking with her, I was instantly taken back by her creative vibe. I have never heard any club mixes quite like hers. DJ Ross mixes mother nature with drums, hard beats, and rhythmic blends that make you instantly feel as if you stepped into rainforest nightclub. Listen here to get an idea of what I mean. 

  

Her very unique style is definitely worth listening to. I am honored to be able to share our interview with you.  

FancyJ: “Hello Miss DJ, it is so nice to meet you!”
DJ Ross: “Thank you, I feel the same way about you!” 

FancyJ: “Could you tell our viewers a little about yourself?” 

DJ Ross: “Well, I am 22 years old and I am from Louisiana. 

FancyJ: “Wow, you look younger than you are, which is great when you get to be 40, you’ll look 25! So, tell me how did you become inspired to be a DJ of all things?” 

DJ Ross: “Lol, Thanks. My love for music started around my toddler years. Every time I heard a song on the radio, when I was in the car with my mom, she said I would always dance and try to sing the lyrics.”

FancyJ: “I did that a lot in my youth too, who know maybe that is what inspired me to become a singer as well?”

DJ Ross: “Maybe.” 

FancyJ: “Do you own any instruments, or did you take lessons as a child?”

DJ Ross: “I got my first guitar at the age of 9 then two years later, I got my first drum set just because I wanted one and thought they were cool. Playing drums became my natural talent without taking any lessons I managed to play quite well.” 

FancyJ: “Impressive, you could say you play it by ear so to speak!”

DJ Ross: “Ya, Lol!” 

FancyJ: “Can you tell me how you ended up going from guitar and drums to DJ’ing turntables?” 

  

DJ Ross: “Seven years later, I discovered my true passion in music, which became DJ’ing and I knew that This was my dream career. I discovered EDM (Electronic Dance Music) from watching youtube videos of DJ Pauly D from the Jersey Shore TV show, as I was searching for videos of Pauly, I found DJ Bl3nd which is a DJ that started out doing DJ sets in his room, dancing around with his chucky mask on and now he travels around the world to DJ for his fans. Since then, he has become my idol. Shortly after I started to pursue my career by investing in my first DJ system, it was very cheap and small. I spent all summer watching videos on how to DJ and teaching myself the basics. After I learned what I needed to know, I started to put my mixes out on soundcloud to share with my family, friends, and the world.”

FancyJ: “I must say that your dedication is admirable, most kids nowadays are not dedicated enough to stick to something and follow through.”

DJ Ross: “Thank you, I guess you have to really love what you want to do to stick to it!” 

FancyJ: “What age would you say that you mastered the art of DJ’ing? Do you feel it is now getting you closer to your dreams?”

DJ Ross: “By the age of 20 I began to master my DJ’ing skills, I decided to take my talent to another level by learning how to produce my own music. When I finally completed my first full song, I decided to post it on soundcloud and I continued to keep working harder to get better. Now, I am getting the recognition I’ve been waiting for all my life. I have gained thousands of followers on my social media sites and hope to continue to gain more. I have a huge passion for music and I am always thinking of what production I would like to do next! My dreams are coming true!” 

  
FancyJ: “Yes, they are! It was a pleasure to chat with you. Know that in me you always have a friend. I will continue to share your story and your music. I thank you for sharing with me. I wish you all the success in the world on your journey to the stars! Would you like to take a moment to send out a special message?”

DJ Ross: “Yes, Thank you FancyJ London for featuring me and listening to my music. I also want to thank every single person, whether you’re a family member, friend or a fan that has believed in me or is believing in me and my dreams. I hope you will continue to show your love and support, and I will continue to give you great music.

Featured Author “Hiraeth Phoenix”

 FancyJLondon ©2015 (All Rights Reserved) This Blog post is a Bio Feature representing: Hiraeth Phoenix Author, Writer and Poet.
Hiraeth (n.) – a homesickness, tinged with grief or sadness over the lost or departed. It is a mixture of longing, yearning, nostalgia, wistfulness, or an earnest desire for the past.

 Hiraeth writes about the longings of the heart. A sensitive, sensory soul, she has been writing as a coping mechanism since she was twelve. As a teenager her poetry won several awards and was published in anthologies.

 Often raw, straight-to-the-point, her writing is stripped down, bare and layered with emotion.

 Her debut novel, Hiraeth Phoenix, was published on Amazon in March 2015. It is the culmination of a year of writing and sharing on her blog and Facebook page. 

  
 

 Hiraeth Phoenix tells the story of a young couple’s relationship by exploring each person’s version of events. It begins with Phoenix, who is in shock and anger following Hiraeth’s sudden departure with no plausible explanation, apart from her realization that they are no longer growing together, expressed in her poetic style. At the end of the first half of the novel, the reader sympathises with him and finds it difficult not to judge Hiraeth for her seemingly selfish behaviour. However, in the second half Hiraeth has a chance to explain herself, to explore the cavities of her soul, her sensitivity. The novel takes the reader on a journey through the heartbreak of a break up, a divorce, the unexpected challenges, the loss that follows, but also the renewal and beauty of second chances. And at the end, it beckons, if you had that chance to see both sides of the story, would it change your behaviour, your ultimate choice?  

  Some reviews of the book are available on her website.
All characters in the novel are entirely imaginary and any resemblance to persons living or dead or actual events is purely coincidental.

 The novel is available on Amazon Kindle here:

http://www.amazon.com/Hiraeth-Phoenix-ebook/dp/B00UR5415S/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1426584456&sr=8-1&keywords=hiraeth+phoenix

 

 Readers who are interested in reviewing the novel are welcome to contact Hiraeth directly for a complimentary copy.

 Hiraeth is passionate about women’s causes and the fight against ending violence against women and children. The theme of not loving another at the expense of oneself is a recurring one in her poetry. When she isn’t exploring fabric of her soul, Hiraeth likes surfing and gardening.

Featured Artist *Allante 

FancyJLondon ©2015 (All Rights Reserved) This Blog post is a Bio Feature representing: Allante Singer, Songwriter, and Rapper. 

“I believe we as artists must support our fellow talented wandering souls out there that also carry a dream! The best success comes when you unite, not divide!” -FancyJ 
I want to take a moment to properly introduce to all of you an extremely talented 17 year old artist with an incredible new approach for rap music. I was introduced to Allante by his brother who was extremely proud of Allante’s talents. I started to grow quite curious of this young artist and decided to write him to find out more. He was very upbeat, energetic, and eager to share his music with me. I listened to a track he sent me and instantly became amazed! I thought to myself this young man is going places. His message was captivating, his lyrics were like no other rapper I have ever heard, his passion shined through his music clearly painting a picture of what could be an amazing new rap era! I was stunned and delightfully surprised by this young man full of spirit, he is definitely worth listening to! 
So, without further a due I present, 

Allante:

 
 “I am a multi-talented artist, rapper, singer, and songwriter.

I was born in Detroit, Michigan and currently live in a small township named Redford. I constantly see Detroit rappers in my age group rapping about drugs, money, and hoes. They’re not making any type of positive change in the rap community. For myself on the other hand, I want to rap about my come up, my struggles, my failures, and my accomplishments. I want my messages in each of my songs to be heard. I want to show teens such as myself, that you should be proud of your talent and never be afraid to express yourself and try something new!”

  
“Music has always been a huge part of my life. 

I often find myself using music to help me get through tough situations. 

I owe a lot of my success to my Mother, because she’s always been there for me, 

and for that I am very grateful. 

My Father left my life at a very young age. I use to cope by using negativity in my song lyrics, but now I feel I have grown and developed a better outlook on my life.

In 7th grade I was often bullied, it became emotional, rapping stuff from my head helped me gain strength.”

  
“I started jotting down ideas and writing songs and rhymes in the beginning of 9th grade. I thought that was the best way to channel my pain, anger and disappointment rather than being destructive. I started to add something about my life that emotionally effected me in each and every song, because I was sure other people could relate to my struggle. Now I have made it to 12th grade, I pretty much mastered my talent, writing hits left and right. Now that I’m getting older, I feel like I am getting better and better. I strongly believe that I will hit a huge milestone before 21!”
“I want to thank everyone who has supported me along the way and those who continue to support my dream and of course the people who just came into my life, for example I am blessed to have an amazing brother that brought you FancyJ, to me. No support is too big or too small as long as it helps me during my journey!”
 “I am an unsigned artist that strongly wishes for a chance at proving myself in the music industry, I possess all the abilities, full determination, and complete dedication.

  
My dream is to one day change the bad reputation that most rappers have and bring out inspiring, real life, feel good messages through rap music.”

“I believe we as artists must support our fellow talented wandering souls out there that also carry a dream! The best success comes when you unite, not divide!” -Fancy J 

 The name is PU an amazing artist with a unique new approach in the music industry, his sound is intriguing pulling you in and making you crave more. PU creates mixes with bass filled beats and melodic tones that invigorate the soul inspiring you to sing all types of genres. If you haven’t heard PU you are missing out on a powerful mix that is hitting the sound waves of the public and very soon everyone’s heart! Without further a due I present a great supporter and friend PU……

   

 
  My career began in 1986, at the time I did not realize it would become just that due to the passion, and blood line of music and musicians in my family, such as the “Rat Pack “from Hyde Park in Chicago IL. Stemming from the late 50’s and 60’s. Listening to Zapp, One Way, Prince just to name a few of my inspirations of R&B. Van Halen, Rush, ZZ Top to name a few of my rock inspirations.   
 Worked in the corporate management world of sales to support my love of music, new gear, and light traveling from 1995 to the present. My music is different, because it has what most of today’s music lack, which is emotions, stories, and uniqueness, as we had in the 90’s R&B sound. Even though R&B is my main genre, I will always push my boundaries and potential for new opportunities and genres which classify me as a crossover producer.
 
 Finally coming out of my shell in 2015, taking my passion from home studio to the web and across the states meeting and collaborating with many new artist in the making such as True Sensei, KonstanteenKaly from the East Coast to the West, my sound can be heard. In this digital age, anything is possible. Not just about me with my gift, but I also volunteer and mentor young teens, with my campaign “Beatz B4 Streetz”. Teach them that music can be a way out, not the streets.

 I am always looking for new artists to work with as I am also tapping into social media marketing and promotion. I now work under PU Productions in which my label Latuda Records is in house, so you get the triple play, production, marketing, and promotion with option with label. Music is my passion. It helps me get through life’s trying times and life’s good times. It also allows my instrumentals to tell a tale of many. Because sometimes in life there are no words…
  
 I believe in the true artistry of being an artist/producer. No matter how many times you request beats and tracks to sound like another artist, you will never be that artist. I am from the era of being yourself and letting your talent shine. There was never a need to be another, just amplifying your talents to a new level. This is why I believe my music is misunderstood or underrated, because I try to bring out the artist with original music that sings with you and for you.

 Shout out to my Kunientmusicgroup, I have worked with this team a little over 6 months and are doing big things! Shout out to True Sensei, an artist that works my beats over into his own creation, doing crazy numbers on the web.

Now you can submit your music!

Featured Artist *CLAIME

   FancyJLondon©2015 (All Rights Reserved) This blog post is a bio/interview representing the Producer/DJ -Claime

“I believe we as artists must support our fellow talented wandering souls out there that also carry a dream! The best success comes when you unite, not divide!” -Fancy J ❤️
Today I am featuring a fellow artist that I had the pleasure of chatting with on several occasions!

 The Name is Claime an 18 year old talented Producer and DJ of Progressive House/Big Room House Music from Antalya, Turkey.  

 

His story began 3 years ago in high school, when a close friend named Berkay changed his life completely by introducing Claime to the world of music. 

Claime wasn’t interested in music as much as his friend, but with time Claime quickly developed a love for electronic club beats deciding to begin producing music.

 It was not long after, that Berkay and Claime started organizing live events for their high school and other high schools in the area. Berkay was more than a friend in the career and life of Claime, without his constant support and friendship Claime wouldn’t have been able to reach as far as he did. 

  
  Claime was contacted by coordinators of the annual Golden Pomegranate Festival. The Pomegranate Festival is an annual festival that is usually held in May every year in Turkey, attracting on average 5,000-7,000 people a year. This festival is filled with an abundance of culture, generally a parade is held with traditional dances, music and celebrity performers.

 Claime listened as the coordinator said: “We have been waiting for you, to be our festival DJ.” This was the greatest news Claime had heard in a while, of course he eagerly accepted. 

Claime was excited to see so many famous artists one in particular, “INNA” a Romanian singer. 

  
 Claime has received several offers from management companies and labels for track releases, but was unable to sign with them due to his family not accepting the agreements, but Claime was able to produce a soundtrack for a short film that he is very proud of. 

Claime continues to fight for his dreams and goals and I strongly believe this young brilliant DJ is bound to reach stardom. 

  
Claime you take it from here…. 
Claime: “Music is my life, I think there is no end to learning, I am continuously learning new styles, tips and tricks to producing and more.”
  “Most of my inspiration comes from listening to pre-made accomplished tracks, like Tiesto, Martin Garrix, and Nicky Romero, just to name a few.”

“I am overwhelmed by all the love and support I have received from Andres Fresko, Joachim Speidel, BL3R, New World Sound, Fancy J London, my friends and many more. I am thankful to have built such great friendships with other DJ’s, producers and musicians from around the world.” 

  
“I think music opens thousands of doors for people. When someone says to me: “You are so talented!” 

“I think talent isn’t that important, people do not make anything with a knack, they make them by believing in their dreams.”

“One day, eventually I will be there, this I know!” 

“Follow your dreams, never give up.” -Claime
