Born I Music (G&D) releases “Blue” with MMG

Born I Music returns to his hip hop roots in this raw, lyrical autobiography of the artist as a young man. This is the story of Born, his origins, and his fight to find himself in the midst of darkness and light, joy and sadness, tragedy and triumph.

Born I Music (G&D/MMG) releases “Havana” single and video nationally

Single and video exec produced, co-produced, and mixed by AJ @ MMG!

Available on Beatport

From the start of his career in both hip hop and electronic music, Washington DC’s Born I Music has always been about defying genres. His new single “Havana” featuring Niqqi and AB Logic takes that approach several steps further.

A tune that is both bright and dark, “Havana” was conceptualized by Born I Music and his DJ and longtime collaborator, AB Logic. Production duties were handled by DC producer Skai Nine, AJ Halpern of Monomental Music Group and AB Logic. Pop/R&B vocalist Niqqi channels Madonna with her Vogue-esque bridge, adding an element of vampy sexuality to the record: “Call us creatures of the night/sleep all day avoid the light”.

The perfect anthem for spring and summer, Born I Music’s “Havana” is certain to be the soundtrack for many a long, twisted night.

MMG presents Born I Music feat Justine – Champion (Sony Korea)

This single was globally released 1/23/14 on Sony Korea (K Pop). It is rare and pretty special to release an English language single off of there… Born I Music breathes out decade-stamping bars and Sony writer / rap newcomer Justine hits it out of the park on this. Me and MMG were going for a long-lasting sound, meshing centuries old timbres with the latest boom.
