Alex Moccia

10246042_626389330774313_1444064029_a We are excited to be introducing a new artist to be on the look out for, Alex Moccia. With a look very reminiscent of Iggy Azalea, but a completely different voice, Alex has the SRP team intrigued for more. Her latest work can be found on YouTube - a remixed and reworked version of Purity Ring's song, "Lofticries". Alex explains that "the lyrics and sound really inspired me to make a full length creative video about overcoming fear and freeing yourself from abuse of any sort". Her deep and melodic tone is unlike most of what we've heard - this small-town singer/songwriter is something to watch out for!

How did you start your music career?

Gifted Miinds started their career in 2011, all it took was 1 upload on youtube and the reaction from the public. All of our 6 recording artist developed thru a pen and a pad or just a instrumental and rhymes of the top. The Gifted Miinds eclectic group the Trinity has been the face of music since 2011 who include artist Lokii Jay, Lotus and Laze. The Trinity have been creating a buzz with the help of the Gifted Team, performing at gigs, and promoting online. The rest of our recording artist Pharoah, Wize, and Profit have been working on their come up as they hit up the GM studio working on new music. The Newark NJ, based group is sure to bring a new essence to the culture with their rhymes and clothing, be sure to check us out www.GiftedMiinds.com

What is your first memory/encounter with music?

There is a limitless amount of memories in this family, we aren't only a group we are family wether it be just hanging in the basement and freestyling a crazy verse, a funny scene shooting a video, or rocking a crazy show. The most memorable encounter we've experience was our 1st performance at Union County College NJ. It was our 1st show, and there was 2 prizes, $100 from the judges and $50 from the crowd, we were the winners for both prizes taking the $150 home that night! We Performed our track called Armageddon and the crowd immediately connected, we also threw free shirts for the crowd they loved it and so did we, by far that is our most memorable. #JERSEY

Tell me a little bit about the idea behind your group - Gifted Miinds? 

The idea behind Gifted Miinds is to connect with the world all the gifted people out there, most importantly our YOUTH. The Gifted is a reference of our talents, our movement, and most importantly our fans, and Miinds includes the double "ii" to reference the groups logo the 2 brained alien that sums up together "Gifted Miinds". We all have a gift, sometimes we feel discourage because of where we come from, the daily struggles we face, or the way we are made specially in our hometown Newark NJ. The ideal purpose and heart of this movement is to inspire the youth, guide them through our music and open their eyes and mind to the world, stick up for Jersey and walk with them thru their life and welcome them to walk along with ours musically.

What inspires you on a daily basis?

    Our inspiration is everything. Where we started and where we stand is an inspiration, the love from fans, our family, and the life in Jersey. The drive comes from our personal struggles, we all have a story to tell, we all have a point to come across, we all have someone to reach out to, we all have lost before, and are searching to gain thru our passion and live through our dreams. You inspire me.

How did you start getting involved with fashion/merchandise? What year did you release the brand?

We first got started with our brand and designing late 2011, we designed through an iPad and sketches and officially released our brand on April 2012 dropping the GM Alien snapback design. Since, we have been producing and have released, sweaters, t-shirts, pins, beanies, and snapbacks for our customers. The brand was created as another outlet for the music to get to consumers, to show a different talent in our art and to give our fans high quality designed products at an affordable price, not for the gain of money but a connection which is richer than anything in this world. All designs are created in-house by Laze and the GM crew. The Newark based brand has gained exposure through music and online sells touching grounds like NY, Texas, Maryland, VA, LA, NJ, all the way to the UK and growing daily. Be sure to check out our clothing. "We all have a Gifted, Lets Wear it"

What are some of your proudest accomplishments over the past couple of years?

One of the proudest accomplishments would be when kids messaged us and said they're dream is to meet us, or how we inspired them to do music. Another one is the faith we give people, the strength of believe they shower us with, claiming we are the future for Jersey, it's what means most to us. 

What are the future plans for Gifted Miinds?

Gifted Miinds Entertainment will be releasing new music from our artist, new videos and clothing. We hope to keep reaching out to people across the world and inspiring the youth. Our plan is to be the future, the best is yet to come. follow us, one love, one Gifted. #Giftedmiinds

Stay tuned for more Gifted Miinds...

Mr. Marty Marr

Have you ever felt like no matter what you do, something is missing? The puzzle is just never quite complete... Well, I am happy to tell you that StreetRacer Productions has found a missing puzzle piece, one that goes by the name of Marty Marr. For those of you who remember, Mr. Marty has already made a small dent with StreetRacers about a month ago with the track "Do It". Today, he is an official StreetRacer - a promising music producer and engineer, with a unique story. I couldn't be more excited to share it with you!

When and how did you start engineering/producing music?

-  I got into recording music when I was 11. I'm 20 now, so that makes for about 9 years of experience. But my dad got me into it. He needed someone to record his commercials for radio and had me learn. At the same time, I was getting into music and so I started recording tracks whenever the studio wasn't in use.

What have you been doing prior to becoming a StreetRacer?

-  I just recently graduated from IAR in New York, I was interning at Kaleidoscope Sound for a minute, doing live sound and recording with other artists in the South Jersey area.

Who has influenced you musically?

-  Definitely Kanye West. I see a lot of innovation from him and always try to do the same when I'm producing. Also, MGMT is something I listen to when I need to explore boundaries.

What makes you want to become a StreetRacer?

-  The fast life. Haha, StreetRacer Production is so focused and organized. Everyone has a part to play. Everyone builds off of the others' success. I figured out that I should be around people that have the same goals as myself.

How did you get your name, "Marty Marr"? - it's really cool and original!

-  Thanks! It really just came as a nickname. My real name is Martin and for some reason people started calling me Marty. I wish I had a cooler story for this aha!

Could you tell me a little bit about your favorite music memory?

-  I think my favorite music memory was the first day I interned at Kaleidoscope Sound. I didn't sleep the night before. I was anxious and I didn't want to oversleep. I spent the whole day trying to pick up on the routine of cleaning and making coffee (and trying not to fall asleep). But by the end of the day, the chief engineer asked me to come into the control room. When I heard the music, it reminded me why I was there in the first place. I love music !

Newz

The creativity is flowing and the beats are flying left and right StreetRacer friends! I would like to emphasize that a new super star beat has been released, produced by our very own Wala Beatz. Check it out at therealstreetracers.com! But that's not all, something salty has come our way... Yes, salty. I have a confession to make. I am a hopeless salt and pepper lover... Are you like me; the one at the dinner table who always reaches for the salt and pepper shaker? It's almost like a natural instinct. Now I sound like a crazy person ranting on about the two inseparable spices..but my point happens to be a valid one. Our StreetRacer producer, Waju Beats has been inspired by this mundane yet metaphoric concept of salt and pepper..black and white, opposites attracting and complimenting one another. One might call it togetherness. Take a listen..and hopefully you too will smile the next time you reach for the salt.
