SEDATED “PUSH PAUSE” JNN EXCLUSIVE DOWNLOAD
FROM TEAM SEDATED:
Outside of the obvious, we have been growing and now developing a true international fanbase. We had no idea to the amount of influence Sedated music had until , well, he went there to co-headline the Minsk & Russian tour. The people seemed to go nuts when he came on stage… he didn’t know why. They sang along to the songs. Especially “Mocking Bard” , “One Day”, & even “True Will”.. The issue was, the international numbers were not being reflected on our outlets like Youtube and the website. Matter of fact, Russians already had their own sedated.ru website that had been “GIVING” all of our albums away for free and their social media was set up more like myspace, So we had found thru research, Sedated had been circulating for over a year before the tour. “Mocking Bard” has tally’d millions of plays thru video and audio thru means we had no clue about. That explained why one of the top agencies in Russia contacted for a joint tour with one of their largest hip-hop artist. They sent plane tickets and had merch ready when he got there. That all sold out by the way.
Since the first appearance at the Gathering, things have moved steady for Sedated. With the support of the Juggalos and a select few, such as the staff at Juggalo News (obviously), we have really done this on our own. No funding, no influence, no permission. Our first performance was a “by chance” kinda thing to begin with. From the first time I heard Eric’s music, I knew it had a sound Juggalo’s would eat up. When I was Afroman’s Booking Agent, I took the chance to score x amount of passes for the “Afroman” crew.. So I took that chance to load up team Sedated and Gather for the first time ever.. Before Afroman’s set on the Underground stage, an act didn’t show.. Someone Said “Put Sedated on!” as a joke, but I said, yea why not… Off to the stage we went, Put a cd in Diego’s hand , did some talking , then around 15 min later.. someone came and got me saying, “Get Eric, they’re putting him on”… that started the fire. Here we are now, years in, several Gatherings, and a million miles later. We are now a common figure in the scene. Things keep growing.
Midwest Music Awards – Hip-hop Artist of the year this year. The first to win in the category ever..funny thing is, we didn’t even know we were nominated…lol . An Overseas Hit. New opportunity around every corner, we have been very blessed to say the leased.. But this has came with blisters and wounds. We really have came from the ground up. And really “Made” something.. and “Made” an impact. He has spend hours with a pen and in a booth, Scotty has spent hours behind a board mixing and tuning, and I have spent hours knocking on doors, shooting and editing, sending emails, and so on. We do this out of so much passion and carried on so long where so many have faded out or gave up, you would think we did this for a living.. but not true. Blood, Sweat, & Tears all the way. Uphill and all, we have kept moving forward, when we get overlooked here in America, it is crazy to think, he is a star a half a world away.. Like, what are these CEO’s and Labels NOT seeing?? But this has molded us into the independent mindset that has gotten us to this point now. We have prepared ourselves into knowing we may have to do this all alone with no help. But luckily we have caught a few breaks here and there.
We have new videos coming soon. “Blowback” which will be the final video from Hit Record. Then we will be dropping videos from the new EP. We have some visuals coming that will raise the bar for the artist out here on our level.. We will be bringing the same if not better visuals and quality than artist and labels that invest thousands in their projects, and we will be doing it all inhouse. As we came along we continued to develop and get better in our creation process in all aspects. We “all” got better in time, never have we had to carry any other persons weight. Very solid trinity we have. Being his manager has been crazy. I got his cd from a girlfriend when I was a DJ at a strip club (Satan Doll’s in KC) working aside Kriz Kalico and Kutt on certain nights in 2005. I called them, had him come perform at an open mic I hosted also where I seen and heard “Local Institution” from his first release “Thank God for Satan”. From that to now, wowzers.. Just keeps getting better.
In the past few months we have been very busy. We developed our own Radio Show (Sedated Nation Radio) that hit FM in Kansas City, created custom leather mask, a new stage show, and so on. We are working on new ideas daily. There is a new full length album in the works that will be part 2 to the trilogy and the follow up release to the new EP “Push Pause” This one will change the game and bring a level you have never seen. Just saying, be prepared..
Speaking of Push Pause, we want to allow you to be the exclusive source, but also express that we are doing this as a way to give something back to the Juggalos for the support and we know times have been rough for them, just like our Russian fans. Even tho we wasn’t able to attend this year, this will be our way of showing them we still hold them in our thoughts and promise to return and shake the shit out of the place.. Hopefully they will see the true gem Eric is and finally bring him more to the front of the festival with a better stage and slot.
We are now routing tours and want to push people to demand us and for promoters to hit us up and bring one of the truest acts in the market to their stage.
We have some great things ahead that I can’t speak on, but when they happen, you will get the exclusive..lol
I am sure you can pull info from our bio on the website along with what you have gotten from interviews. There is just so much I can say about him, that this would turn into an auto biography, just really, whatever you write, all we want is people to know the truth. We will never bullshit our fans. Honesty is a strong matter with us. hints the track “Mocking Bard” & “Fake’n Jack” (featured on new EP) If there is anything else you may want to add or think may interest your readers, just hit me up. At the end of the day, we make this music for the people. Money has never been the motive. It’s about awareness. Lifting people up. He truly cares about his fans and friends.
