Happy 2011 from Heavy Gun

1 Feb

Heavy Gun kicks of 2011 with new music from Oreo Jones & Sinclair Wheeler, alpha.live & J. Brookinz, and Andy D. & Grey Granite!:

2010 saw Heavy Gun grow and mature from a group of like minded musicians into a full fledged label and movement within the Midwest hip-hop community and culminated with Heavy Gun being honored by Nuvo Newsweekly.  As a means of saying “thank you” to all of the fans, blogs, djs, and anyone that supported Heavy Gun in 2010, we give you this taste of what we have in store for you in 2011.  This sampler includes a Oreo Jones‘s and Sinclair Wheeler‘s remix of “Blame Game” by Kanye West, alpha.live rocking a J. Brookinz production, and a remix of Grey Granite‘s “Not A Robot” featuring Andy D.  With your help, Heavy Gun is set to make 2011 bigger and brighter than 2010!

Oreo Jones made a ton of noise in 2010, and he’s not about to stop in 2011.  On January 13th, Oreo is going to release his collaborative indie rock EP Oreo Jones & Friends featuring Jookabox, Woodhands, Ko of Slothpop, BLKNHBD, We Are Hex, Laura Balke, Grey Granite, J. Brookinz. DJ Metrognome, and Fair Fjola, which is a benefit project for VH1’s Save The Music between X103, Butler Scion, My Old Kentucky Blog, and Heavy Gun Recordings.  If you’re in Indianapolis, make sure you check out the free release show @ Local’s Only that night!  Also, Oreo is set to drop his follow up to the Delicious EP with producer 90lbs titled Super Model Death Dive sometime early this spring.

J. Brookinz, the highest man alive, had an extremely uplifting year with the success of his album The Gateway Drug: THC.  2011 will find the smokin’ producer rolling up the sequel to The Gateway Drug, as well as producing an EP for one of Indy’s dopest emcees alpha.live.  We’ve always considered alpha a member of the HG family; it just took the right set of circumstances to get him to wrap a project for us.  6 Shot is a 6 track of alpha getting live on J. Brookinz beats and will serve as the precursor to his album Soul Cinematic 1.5.

One of the founders of Heavy Gun, Grey Granite will continue his steady output of music from 2010.  Grey’s first new project of 2011 will be the release of a deluxe edition of Pixelated Lazer Face Bass Monster featuring a new original and remixes from Aaron Hogan, Andy D, Cool Hand Lex, Dave Wrangler, Infuze, J. Brookinz, Twenty-five Lighters, and Sonkin.  Watch for that to hit digital and Indianapolis music retailers in late February.  Additionally, Grey is completing work on a more traditional hip-hop release with DJ Metrognome featuring exclusive J. Brookinz production that should be dropping sometime before summer.
