J. Brookinz - Future Ninja ft Oreo Jones, Flaco, Grey Granite, Lisa Berlin, and Young Carolyn

Grey Granite and J. Brookinz continue to prove that Gateway 2 is going to be an all-city affair on the second single “Future Ninjas” featuring Oreo Jones, Flaco, Lisa Berlin, and Young Carolyn:

J. Brookinz - Future Ninja ft Oreo Jones, Flaco, Grey Granite, Lisa Berlin, and Young Carolyn by Heavy Gun 2011

After a 48 hour studio lock-in, J. Brookinz and Grey Granite have wrapped the recording phase of Gateway 2! In celebration of their smoking accomplishment, the Heavy Gunners are linking up with Indy Mojo to exclusively release the second single via the Indianapolis social networking site. “Future Ninja” picks up where “Stuck” ended with spaced out guitars in Brookinz’s production, a stellar hook from Lisa Berlin of Jookabox, a fly bridge from Young Carolyn, and slick verses from Grey, Oreo Jones, and Flaco. With 20+ artists recorded during the lock-in and 28 artists on the final project, Indianapolis needs to get prepared as if it were 4:19 for one of the most collaborative albums in the city’s musical history! Oh, and we have to send a HUUUUUUUGE shout out to the Kemps for letting us takeover their studio Helter Shelter for the weekend!

Let’s Do Lunch w/ Oreo Jones ft. Beta Male

Beta Male brings a touch of class to Let’s Do Lunch with Oreo Jones!:

So far Let’s Do Lunch has made chili, grilled cheese, and a Bunch of Old Ladies, but in this episode, Oreo’s switching gears and having a tea party with the band Beta Male.  That’s right, one-man concept-band turned new wave sex-rock hula-hoop band Beta Male classes up the set of Let’s Do Lunch with some Earl Grey tea and cucumber sandwiches on pumpernickel bread.  The group even hosts a guest of honor, Teddy Ruxpin.  We’re going to go ahead and say it:  you’ve never truly partied until you attended a Beta Male tea party.

WATCH ON YOUTUBE NOW!

Beta Male started out as the introspective solo project of David Hazel in 2005.  With a lot of hoopla and hula hooping, David began conspiring with performance artists Allison Hazel and Jessica Hack on Beta Male’s now sexy live performance.  As their artistic relationship blossomed, Allison and Jessica became integral members of the group, respectively playing bass guitar and keys.  With the addition of guitarist TJ Briggs, Beta Male took on the appearance of a tradition four piece, but in all honesty, they were so much more.  Between their adventurous production, fearless lyrics, and eerily erotic live performance, Beta Male proves to be a provocative exploration of emotion rendered in sound and light.

Oreo Jones rallies Friends to Save the Muisc!

Oreo Jones rallies all of his friends to benefit VH1’s Save The Music:

When a city embraces a new artist, it only feels right to give back to the community. In that spirit, for his upcoming Oreo Jones and Friends EP, Oreo has joined forces with X103, Butler Scion, My Old Kentucky Blog, and Heavy Gun Recordings to assist VH1’s Save The Music. Protecting music programs in our schools is a cause near and dear to Oreo as his mother and aunts are public school teachers. The project features collaborations between Mr. Jones and Jookabox, Woodhands, BLKNHBD, We Are Hex, Laura Balke, Grey Granite, and J. Brookinz. The EP will be released on Thursday, January 13th for free, with listeners being encouraged to donate whatever possible to Save the Music via Heavy Gun’s Bandcamp.

Happy (Belated) New Year from Heavy Gun

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 + Sinclair Wheeler - Blame Game by HeavyGunRecs

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.

alpha.live - The Come Up (Prod. J.Brookinz) by HeavyGunRecs

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.

Grey Granite - Not A Robot Remix Ft. Andy D. by HeavyGunRecs

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.

Oreo Jones & Friends Save The Music!

Oreo Jones drops “Guiding Light” ft. Jookabox as the lead single from his upcoming indie rock collaboration EP in connection with VH1’s Save the Music:

Oreo Jones + Jookabox - Guiding Light by OreoJones

What do you get when you combine one of the hottest up-and-coming hip-hop emcees with a powerhouse indie rock band?  In a word, a jam!    The new single “Guiding Light” is a feel good song that seamlessly blends the clever word play of Oreo Jones with the psychedelic vibes of Jookabox.  From the onset of Jookabox’s infectious instrumental, the listener is compelled to nod their head, so by the time Oreo begins his first verse, they’re ready to follow wherever his rhymes may lead.  “Guiding Light” is the lead single from Oreo’s upcoming Oreo Jones and Friends EP.

With the holidays upon us, it only feels right to give back to the community.  In that spirit, for his upcoming Oreo Jones and Friends EP, Oreo has joined forces with X103, Butler Scion, My Old Kentucky Blog, and Heavy Gun Recordings to assist VH1’s Save The Music. Protecting music programs in our schools is a cause near and dear to Oreo as his mother and aunts are public school teachers.  The project features collaborations between Mr. Jones and Jookabox, Woodhands, Pravada, We Are Hex, Laura Balke, Grey Granite, and J. Brookinz.  The EP will be released on January 13th for free, with listeners being encouraged to donate whatever possible to Save the Music.  The release will also be accompanied by a free show and benefit auction at Local’s Only that night.

Who is Oreo jones?  This past spring, Oreo Jones took the hip-hop and indie music scenes of Indianapolis by storm with the release of his Delicious EP on Heavy Gun Recordings and was recently voted the 2nd favorite hip-hop act in Nuvo Newsweekly.  The Delicious EP was led by the success of his single “Good Times” which has been featured on several national music blogs and charted up to #4 on the Hypem.com Twitter chart.  In short, Oreo Jones is an artist that should be paid attention!

Grey Granite & Oreo Jones - Turn It On (Prod. by El Carnicero)

Grey Granite and El Carnicero’s journey to Pixelated Lazer Face Bass Monster continues with second single “Turn It On” featuring Oreo Jones:

Grey Granite - Turn It On ft. Oreo Jones by HeavyGun

Picking up where "Not A Robot" left off, Grey Granite and El Carnicero roll out their second singe from Pixelated Lazer Face Bass Monster “Turn It On” featuring Heavy Gunner Oreo Jones.  “Turn It On” is a pure party jam with a bouncy beat and psychedelic synths that compels the listener to have a good time and dance.  Both Grey and Oreo bring their spit game on this one.  Grey is at home rhyming about his love of High Life, women and parties.  And Oreo doesn’t care because he “ain’t got no underwear.”  Pixelated Lazer Face Bass Monster is coming this summer!
