DENZIL PORTER RELEASES NEW MUSIC VIDEO “BRING IT ON”

With “Ray Bans” Supplement

 

BRONX, NEW YORK MAY 1, 2012 – Denzil Porter releases his newest music video to “Bring It On” with a B-side sample of “Ray Bans”.  “Bring It On”, produced by Trent is a feel good track off of Denzil Porter’s newest project Home Made Music.  The video can be viewed via YouTube here: http://youtu.be/d2H1GiI6gLc.

 

The video, produced by Stein A., is soulful, nostalgic and easy-going.  Inspired by A Tribe Called Quest’s “Award Tour” video, Denzil Porter gives you the visual to a song representing that special time in hip hop when music gave the listener a feeling of freedom and jubilance.  On this playful track, Denzil is able to just rap with no barriers, allowing him to “rap and say what he wanna” just as long as the “music don’t stop”.  “Bring It On” was created as a timestamp so that whenever one hears the track, be it today or 20 years from now, the listener will be able to reminisce on that good feeling this song gave them then and for years to come.

 

“Ray Bans”, produced by Christopher “Claws” Stevens, who is featured in the video, is a more current sounding track that blends right in at the end of the video with it’s smooth, futuristic beat and contemporary style.  Allowing listeners just a minute long taste of the track, Denzil Porter gives viewers a combination platter of music, which leaves us all only wanting more.

Denzil Porter Re-Releases “Intuition”

NEWS RELEASE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

RAPPER DENZIL PORTER RE-RELEASES HIS VIDEO “INTUITION” IN HONOR OF WORLD AIDS DAY

 

A Year After Its Original Release, “Intuition” Continues to Spread a Valuable Message

 

 

BRONX, NEW YORK DECEMBER 1, 2011 – After so much positive feedback, rapper Denzil Porter has re-released the video to his popular track, “Intuition” off his newest project Home Made Music.  The video can be viewed via YouTube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rwOmHxwWdoQ.

 

“Intuition”, originally released in October 2010 for National HIV/AIDS Awareness Month was soon followed by its theatrical music video release just a couple months later on December 10, 2010 during World AIDS Month.  In just three short days, the video had already gained 8,000 views.  Not even a year later, the video has skyrocketed up to over 53,000 views and has been seen in countries as far as Canada, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands.  “Intuition” has been featured on AIDS awareness and prevention sites as well as thousands of popular blogs including Rap Radar, Vlad TV, Nah Right and Real Talk NY.

 

“Intuition”, produced by Christopher “Claws” Stevens with video shot and directed by Jaison Williams and Fiona Amara, brings home the severity of the HIV virus and how easily it can be contracted, especially in a relationship lacking communication but full of intuition.  HIV and AIDS are not only issues within the African American and Latino community, but also issues worldwide.  “Intuition” is a track that not only hip-hop and rap listeners can appreciate, but also one that everyone can find significance and understanding in.

 

Though the video was released a year ago, the message will never get old.  “I’m re-releasing it because I don’t think enough people have seen it,” Denzil Porter says.  “Communication needs to be recognized as a form of contraception”.  Denzil Porter allows this message to be seen and heard across the world.

DENZIL PORTER RELEASES HIS 3RD PROJECT

HOME MADE MUSIC

Like a Plate of Homemade Food, Home Made Music is Released Just in Time for Thanksgiving

 

BRONX, NEW YORK NOVEMBER 22, 2011 – Rap artist Denzil Porter has just released his 3rd project titled Home Made Music that is now available for download here: http://www.datpiff.com/Denzil-Porter-Home-Made-Music-mixtape.286508.htmlHome Made Music features 14 original songs plus 1 bonus track including some of Denzil Porter’s most popular hits such as “Haymaker”, “Intuition” and “ Kanye West”, gaining recognition from their music videos on YouTube which have over 120,000 views collectively.  The track list features names of some of the hottest underground producers including Christopher “Claws” Stevens of WreckHouse Ent., Mark XLnce of LXG, Hitman D, Trent and more.

 

Home Made Music is a collection of songs written, recorded, engineered and mastered by Denzil Porter in his bedroom studio making this mixtape literally “homemade”.  Denzil gives his listeners a great quality of music that was made straight from scratch.  “I’m cooking up that raw music to give to the people,” Denzil Porter says.  “It’s the food for thought.  I’m hoping this food can bring the listeners to life”. With two mixtapes under his belt: On My Way Home and Live From The Other Side, Home Made Music is the first project released after Denzil changed his name from “Young Flame” to “Denzil Porter”.  Home Made Music combines Denzil Porter’s witty lyrics, abstract thoughts and clever punch lines while still maintaining the fun in hip-hop which is the missing element in much of today’s music.

 

When making Home Made Music, Denzil Porter wanted to introduce his listeners to all aspects of his art.  Not only is Denzil able to write ingenious lyrics, but he can also formulate them into great songs.  He can naturally make different types of music without ever contradicting who he is.  Denzil Porter beams, “I really think people are going to love Home Made Music because it’s a breath of fresh air.  It’s just artistic.  Home Made Music will be a collectors item”.

 

 

With Home Made Music being released just two days before Thanksgiving, this is the perfect 14-course meal to fill every listener’s appetite.  We all know food is the way to the soul and the best type to cook up is always homemade.  Join the fun on Twitter and tweet #HMM along with all the homemade food you will be devouring this week while bumping that new Denzil Porter Home Made Music.

DENZIL PORTER RELEASES HIS NEWEST SINGLE, “KANYE WEST”

Is Being an Asshole a Natural Thing?

 

BRONX, NEW YORK SEPTEMBER 27, 2011 – Rapper Denzil Porter releases his newest single “Kanye West” off his upcoming project Home Made Music.  The “Kanye West” video can be viewed here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KC8qS7j24qI.  “Kanye West”, produced by Mark XLNC, was inspired by the stereotypical New York City resident.  New Yorkers: hardworking, tough and outspoken are often viewed to those outside of the city as just plain assholes.  Denzil explains, “I feel like it’s just in our blood to do what we do and say what we say when we want to.  Although we look at it as how we live, outsiders look at is as rude and obnoxious”.

 

After adding some witty lyrics inspired by real life events, Denzil Porter knew he needed a chorus that the crowd could chant when performed live like “Haymaker”, but a lot more comical like the song’s storyline.  When asked why not just name the song “Asshole”, Denzil responds, “The title was selected because I wanted to use the most famous asshole that accepts his role as an asshole as much as the rest of us do.  No diss intended”.

 

Since the song debuted in Canada when Denzil Porter opened up for Kendrick Lamar, the demand for a video and the song’s release were high.  The video, directed by Ulysses Adams and Fiona Amara stars Wreckhouse members being assholes in different ways.  This ranges from stealing candy from a little girl to beating up a homeless man.  The visuals were easily laid out in the song.

 

Though the word “asshole” has such a negative connotation, the song is meant to be funny and embraced by New Yorkers and assholes all over.  Laughing, Denzil Porter concludes,  “I’m pretty flattered when people call me an asshole nowadays”.
