Gone With the Rising Sun

Can love be a monster? Can it captivate you in a way that you eventually feel the only option left is to pick up all your stuff and leave? Does love ultimately help us look out for no one but ourselves? All these questions are vividly painted in the lyrics of Gone With the Rising Sun, written and sung by Alex Moccia, produced by SRP's very own WajuBeats. The inspiration behind the production of this beat came from romance drama, "The Fault in Our Stars". Moccia's powerful voice brings it to a different dimension. The final product is the complete package - we are proud and excited to release this heartfelt hit. Take a listen and if you feel what we feel - share it with your friends and followers!

Nothing can compare to the amount of beauty and excitement packed into one short week - yes, Fashion Week, Fall 2014 is upon us. We've been through some of the inspiring pieces and chosen a few favorites. More can be found HERE. To top it off, we want to share with you some of the tunes that have been playing out of our speakers this weekend. Route 94 and XXX88, the perfect club/lounge mixes, wouldn't you say?

All for one and one for all

A while back we started introducing new artists every week - ones that we collaborate with or are inspired by. Last week was all about that soft singer/songwriter sound, this week we're bringing back the hardcore and raw, more specifically - a mixture of Logic, A Tribe Called Quest and Yelawolf. Yes, a flow that you will rock your boat. A few weeks ago StreetRacer Productions met Joshua Andrew Boyer, more commonly known as DOSENATION, a South Jersey rapper striving for something bigger than just the fame and success of his own words. From 2007 to today the solid work has paid off and you will find Joshua across the web, on many different platforms - growing his nation. We've had the pleasure of learning a bit more about the artist and his vision, keep reading and you'll see why this rapper has so much more to give!

What is your earliest memory of music, and how has it impacted you?

My earliest memory of music is watching my Uncle Steve make beats in his apartment. I was so fascinated with how everything worked that I became eager to learn the language of music at any cost. This Art had me at Hello.

Who are some of your greatest influencers, and who do you hope to one day influence?

My greatest influences are A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul and B.I.G. I hope one day to influence our youth into doing the right thing and spreading a message through music. Drop beats not bombs.

What do you think sets it apart from all the other great rappers/artists out there?

What sets me apart from the rest of the artist are that I never spit the same flow. I have the ability to switch it up in a moments notice and not think twice about it. I've always seen it like this "Create your own lane, competition can't compete with originality"! I have the ability to connect with people by the masses. Being a artist your fans need to be your number one priority, without them you are NOTHING.

What can we expect to hear and see from DOSENATION in the near future?

This year will be filled with a lot of Shows (expect a great time with a lot of excitement,energy and good vibes), my clothing, contest held by me, meet-and-greets and a possible tour (as of right now my locations are NJ|PA|NY). I am very excited for what the future holds.

What are three things you cannot live without?

There are only 3 things in this life I cannot live without and that is my family, music and God. I find faith in all of them, become part of something bigger than this life, follow the movement and become part of the nation #DOSENATION.

Louder Than Words

In light of the upcoming 'Born to Create' campaign, we would like to share with you the very talented photographer that StreetRacer Productions has as of recently been working with - Maggie Wilson. Not only does her work capture the many essences of life, but they also inspire us to explore several corners of our own creativity, and to reach just a little further to what it is we desire. This recent feature on A Plus is a great depiction of what Maggie's photography represents. Take a look here! 0ea14c30-cc81-469b-b32e-c40ca78e1ddf_medium

Nimba

Sweet spots are not always easy to come by, but when you do find them there is not a lot like it. This sunny weekend was spent in the heart of Brooklyn amongst its incredibly eclectic and inspiring environment. A particular fave of mine turned out to be café Nimba. If you haven't already been, you definitely should! The rustic, yet simple atmosphere enabled us to sit back and soak up the peacefulness of the place. Not only were the bookshelves, brick walls and urban photography making me want to dream bigger and pursue larger, even the hot tea between my hands had my mind twitching for more.

Limitlessness

We are working hard to get our StreetRacer music out there. Limitations are fostering creativity and the drive to produce great content is bigger than ever. We are now not only available on SoundCloud, YouTube and your other mainstream social media channels, but also on sites such as Amazon, iTunes and Google Play, just to mention a few. Whichever way you prefer to consume music, we want to be there!

New Inspiration

photo 1-2

We all reach a point in our lives where adversity hits us in the face, and we begin questioning our purpose, why we are where we are and where we ought to be going. It is not easy answering your own questions in life. Contemplation. This exact word is one of the many reasons that this blog exists, for you, for me, for everyone. A creative outlet. A place for imaginative contemplation. I invite you to contemplate with me and the rest of the StreetRacer Team. Stay tuned for our upcoming, idea generating, creativity sparking post...

And to top it all off.. here's a little something from our very own WajuBeats.

Remarkable Isa

We absolutely love the combination of music and modern art. Have you ever heard of Isa Genzken? Most people probably haven't, but listen up, because this German artist is one of very few females to have her first retrospective at the MoMa in New York. She explores elements of audio using photography and sculpture in a way I've never seen before. As I did my research on Isa, I learnt that she is not your ordinary sculptor...her fascination with New York's architecture has transcended into multiple works of urban, expressive, and quite explosive bodies of art. We absolutely love her raw style, making all of us question what "good" taste in the vast world of the arts actually is. What do you think good taste is? And how do you feel about her portrayal and interpretation of New York City?
