„Pastor Zaster ist zurück, jetzt wird wieder geschossen.“
Der Fürther Rapper und Produzent veröffentlicht mit Zasterdamus seine vierte EP
Auf dem neuesten Machwerk von Pastor Zaster geht es hart zur Sache. Nachdem er Hollywood den Rücken gekehrt hat, ist der Fürther zurück auf den Südstadt Streets und zeichnet ein düsteres Bild seiner Nachbarschaft. Die fünf Anspielstationen wirken wie ein Drive Bye Shooting: Aus dem Nichts wird plötzlich das Feuer eröffnet, dann geht alles ganz schnell und am Ende ist man froh, heil aus der Sache herausgekommen zu sein.
Musikalisch ist die EP vom Westcoast Gangsta Rap der Neunziger inspiriert und pendelt zwischen G-Funk und oldschooligen Samplebeats. Unterstützung hat der Fürther für dieses Projekt vom Produzenten Clav Split und Rapper Farmer MC erhalten. Das Cover wurde von Daeni Chrome gestaltet und Mr. Hedgehog ist für das Mastering verantwortlich.
Die ganze EP kann kostenlos auf Bandcamp herunter geladen werden, einzelne Songs stehen auf Soundcloud zum Download bereit.
Rod Weygant and Mark Williams grew up as neighbors and started writing and recording songs before they were teenagers. Fast forward to the 90’s, and as adults they wrote and recorded 15 albums of original material. Finally in 2013 they decided to record in a professional cd. With the help of longtime friend Dennis Gage on drums, their lifelong dream of making a professional album came to life.
From its smooth Rhodes opening to the tastefully layered percussive grooves which evolve throughout, the new single from enigmatic Australian based producer and songwriter Mad Article exudes an alluring warmth. Coupled with fresh electronic overtones, the track is sure to find a home both in clubs and on the airwaves.
Featuring deliciously hooky vocal contributions from UK based singer / songwriter Kate Wild, ‘Better With You’ makes a powerful statement for celebrating independence in love and life. A fusion of neo-soul, classic house and future disco, the single has a stylistic confidence and evokes a nostalgic sentiment which will be appreciated by fans of these genres.
The architect of this sonic design, Mad Article, is on a trajectory to international recognition; all the while remaining a shadowy identity who prefers the music to take centre stage. Clearly a master of the craft, one can only anticipate the finely polished gems which are to follow this debut release.
‘Better Without You’ has already attracted the attention of some industry heavy-hitters, with acclaimed mix engineer Arthur Indrikovs (Calvin Harris, Clean Bandit) and Yoad Nevo (Sia , Godfrapp, Sugababes) contributing their Midas touch to the final release.
With its top shelf production and across the board appeal, ‘Better Without You’ is destined to hit the charts with an unforgettable impact this season.

Attention-grabbing videos are getting to be dynamic country crooner Robby Johnson’s thing. After bursting onto the scene with the viral smash „South Of Me,“ he’s back with a new single, his ballad „Together.“ The music video is available now here:
Written by chart-topping country performer Chris Young, „Together“ is the first song Johnson was offered a chance to record after he moved his family to Nashville. In fact, Robby first heard the tune while working as a demo singer for legendary tunesmith Frank Myers. At the time, he could only dream of being able to make the song a master recording for his own debut album.
The upcoming video for „Together,“ which is the second single from his James Stroud-produced debut album Don’t Look Back, is a high-drama imagining of just how deep true love runs:
Together we are stronger than apart and now Forever we’ll be joined here in our hearts like A puzzle with a missing piece Did I find you did you find me It’s crazy how two lives are meant to be Together
More than just a title, „together“ is also how the video was made, as Johnson’s 8-year-old Pierre plays a role in the clip. „My son and I have lots of things in common,“ Robby says. „Like me, he loves Elvis and Michael Jackson, and he dreams of playing Superman in a movie. He did an amazing job and I hope Hollywood is watching!“
Odds are they won’t be the only ones watching, if Johnson’s career to date is any indication. His introduction to national audiences came with the video for „South Of Me,“ which drew an astounding three million views within a few months of release. The viral success propelled him to radio airplay and major network television appearances.
