So me and KenSon have been putting this EP together for a while. It’s mainly a boom bap styled EP, most of the beats are sampled and pretty dusty, so if you like 90s hip hop, this EP will be your shit. One of the bonus tracks is a trap song too, so anyone who digs the dirty south, there’s some stuff in here for you too.
It’s available on my Bandcamp for streaming and free download. YOU GET TWO BONUS TRACKS THAT AREN’T AVAILABLE FOR STREAMING WHEN DOWNLOADING!
If you dig this, please put it on your blogs/social networks and anywhere that will get it more love.
Submitting your music to blogs can be very beneficial, it will help get your name out there to a new audience, but you have to do it right in order to reap these benefits.
- DO: Make a personal connection with the blogger, try to find their first name on their “about” page. Bloggers like to know if their blog is just a one-stop in your submission quest or if you’re actually interested in their blog specifially
- DO: Include any relevant links such as social networks like Twitter and Facebook as well as your personal website/blog.
- DO: Send streaming links to your music rather than attaching MP3s. Sites like Soundcloud, and Bandcamp are great for this as they have embedding options
- DO: Do some research on the blog you’re trying to be featured on. Don’t submit a dirty south song to a blog dedicated to indie rock.
- DO: Include some info about yourself. Bloggers don’t like to just post a music link and nothing else, include your location, a little bit about yourself and your music and the cover art.
- DO: Have a relevant subject line. Something like “DOPE NEW RAP SONG BY LIL RAPPER” is just going to make a blogger send your message to spam. A simple subject line such as “Music Submission: KenSon and Backspacez – Give Me Now (Hip Hop)” is fine.
- DON’T: Mass email multiple blogs without using BCC. BCC means “blind carbon copy” meaning the recipients can’t see who else you sent the message to. You shouldn’t even mass email at all though, even if you are using BCC. A personal email to a blogger is the best bet.
- DON’T: Send an email with your music not specifying what you want the blogger to do with it. Do you want it reviewed? Posted in the X section?
- DON’T: Send a bunch of music at once, unless it’s an album. Don’t just leave 8 links to 8 different songs and expect the blogger to listen to them all.
- DON’T: Send to their personal emails. Make sure the email you’re sending to is meant for music submissions.
- DON’T: Stop submitting to blogs when you don’t get featured. Bloggers get lots of emails a day, a lot of which they don’t even open.
- DON’T: Send old music to blogs. Nobody wants to feature an 8 month old song on their blog, bloggers want new, fresh music.
- DON’T: Send badly recorded or scrap music to blogs, that will be their first impression of you as a musician. If they think of you as an unprofessional musician, any future submissions they get from you won’t be taken seriously.
What’s up guys? Me and KenSon have an EP planned called “Law Of Demand”. It is set for release on October 3rd of this year. If you don’t know who we are, I’m Backspacez, a producer from Long Island, NY. I cook meth in my spare time. KenSon is an emcee from Berkeley, California, and also one half of the Bottom Notch crew.
We already have one single released which dropped last week, Give Me Now. And we are planning to release another single before the EP drops.

It released yesterday but this blog only gets a couple of hits a day so I wasn’t rushing to update it.
Anyways, here is the link to listen or download for free.

On this track I hooked up with Berkeley, California native KenSon. I produced the track and he did the rapping. This track is the second release off my upcoming mixtape “A Dying Culture”. It will feature all my production with rappers I meet on the internet rapping over them.
This track is good vibes, KenSon speaks on wanting to get his life together and just having fun.
