Michael Christmas
Michael Christmas
Born and raised in Boston, Michael Christmas began his career as a rapper in his early teens and went on to release his debut mixtape, Is This Art?, at age 19 in February 2014. Christmas spent the remainder of 2014 making waves locally and throughout the northeast, eventually leading to a supporting slot on Logic’s 40-date ‘The Under Pressure Tour’ in early 2015. Having temporarily relocated to Los Angeles just prior to the tour, Christmas continued his music-making process on the West Coast and has since been preparing for the upcoming release of his sophomore project, What A Weird Day, due out October 23
Joey Aich
Joey Aich
Joey Aich is a 22 year old hip/hop emcee from a small suburb of Cleveland, OH, Woodmere Village. He has always been around music from church choirs where he was a regular soloist, to school musical productions in high school. He was introduced to writing music back in middle school when he would frequently use poetry to complete creative assignments. In high school he continued to write music, but it was more of a means to vent and channel inner frustrations.

Joey chooses to create music that subverts today's hip hop norm. He pays homage to the 90's golden age: focusing on flow and story development. Yet, he is not stuck in the past. He hops on some cutting edge beats and peppers his flow with a hard-nosed, all-knowing personality. When listening to Joey's music one can simultaneously feel like they can sit down and have a real conversation with him, and feel like they are being enlightened. This is intelligent music we are dealing with, and its already caught the attention of multiple music critics and fellow artists.

Joey's music has been featured in multiple independently owned hip-hop blogs such as Stop the Breaks and Underground Media. He has also performed with the likes of Asher Roth, Curren$y, Cal Scruby, Super Duper Kyle!, many others, and soon Dizzy Wright and Audio Push. He has even founded his own entertainment company by the name of Joey Aich Entertainment LLC. Having already garnered a significant amount of attention in the past couple of years, and with a highly anticipated project upcoming, Joey Aich will be on the radar for a very large community of music listeners in the coming years.
Dom Deshawn
How does one, "standout" in such a crowded hip hop scene?

A question Columbus, OH native Dom Deshawn(born Dominique Mattox) had to ask himself. He soon realized the answer was simple... "Be you.� With influences such as Slum Village, Nas, Timbaland/Missy, and Phonte, shaping his outlook on music, they set a foundation of quality he strives to uphold. 2011 he finally began his musical journey with his release of, "A Work In Progress". Followed up with, "The 23 EP" in 2013. He finally hit his stride with the 2014 release of, "Moods & Interludes". He was featured on YouHeardThatNew.com, Boi-1da.Net, RESPECT-MAG.com, Hiphopsince1987.com, Hot 97’s Enuff.com and more. Carrying over the momentum from Moods, he has big plans for 2015. Noir EP being the first.....
Bobby Booshay

Latchkey
Latchkey
LatchKey, Born Kevin E.M. Martin, is a hip-hop and R&B songwriter and recording artist hailing from Shaker Heights, OH. LatchKey's stage name is a nod to his original inspiration for writing: as a latchkey kid, often home alone with nobody to talk to, he took pen to paper from an early age as a medium of self-expression. LatchKey's vocal versatility is evident in his songs, as he seamlessly transitions from the wordplay of uptempo verses into soulful, ear-catching hooks. His music explores issues in daily life and in relationships, finding humor, heartbreak, and everything in between.

Latchkey cites Cal Scruby, Fabolous, Lupe Fiasco and Kid Cudi as artists who have directly influenced his music. On a larger scale, his influences are extensive and eclectic, and include Sam Cooke, Led Zeppelin, Matt & Kim, and Little Brother, among others. Latchkey has worked with Cleveland-area producers Ray Coupe and M Stacks, and he has previously released a mixtape entitled "Latch Key Chronicles Pt. 1," under the name Kemmistry (available on datpiff.com, produced by L_E_IT, Ray Coupe, and DJ Dubstronox).
