Jamal Batiste releases new EP 'All Rock'd Up'
February 2, 2018

Url: http://indiemusicnewsworldwide.wordpress.com

The drummer, songwriter and music producer known as Jamal Batiste has released his latest EP album, “All Rock'd Up.” “All Rock'd Up” contains seven original Jamal Batiste tracks for an approximate total listening time of nearly half an hour. Like the rest of Batiste's repertoire, the extended-play album has been proudly published on the Jam-All Pro. Music Group independent record label. Innovative, high-impact, and packed with lyric gymnastics and urban poetry, “All Rock'd Up” is an EP to put Jamal Batiste on the map once and for all.

Jamal Batiste cites as his main artistic influences Lecrae, Kendrick Lamar, Dee-1, Linkin Park, the Roots, Mint Condition, and Russell Batiste. His own style mixes elements from a great many genres, primarily including soul, funk, and R&B, but also rock, hip-hop, classical, and jazz. While his new EP, “All Rock'd Up” comes out of the gate sounding like a straightforward hardcore rap record, listeners will find much more in store for them as the EP carries forward.

In addition to the considerable talents of Jamal Batiste, himself, “All Rock'd Up” also features the skills of Mik Jag, Ka$h Akbar, Vegas Cola, Sammi Joy, Fya Tha Phenom, Candace Sharper, Alana Creecy, Darryl "Baby D." McCoy Jr., Cognac, and Shaggadelic.

Asked to comment on the overall themes of his EP, Jamal Batiste writes, “Know and believe in yourself and your worth. Fight to stay positive, righteous, motivated, and inspired to work towards your dreams and goals in life. Be God's living example, a light for others to see.”

Jamal Batiste's music has been featured on 50 Cent’s website thisis50.com, as well as CNN’s “Go New Orleans” program. He played James Brown's drummer in the “Get On Up” 2014 biopic and received a proclamation from the New Orleans City Council presented by Councilmember James Gray for his performance, as well as a certificate of recognition that acknowledges him as “The Unorthodox Drummer” from New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu. Batiste also earned a Lifetime Achievement Award for community work from President Barack Obama.

Batiste has been featured on CNN, CBS Nightly News, USA Today, Ebony, WGNO’s “News with a Twist,” the Times-Picayune/NOLA.com, Offbeat, and Gambit and also played snare in Ne-Yo’s video “Never Knew I Needed” from Disney’s “Princess and the Frog.” Jamal Batiste has performed and recorded with: Jon Batiste (The Late Show with Stephen Colbert), Aloe Blacc, Dee-1, Trombone Shorty, Jonathan “Sugarfoot” Moffett (Michael Jackson), Bill Dickens (Janet Jackson), D’Wayne Wiggins (Toni Tony Toné), Bill Summers (Herbie Hancock), Jon Cleary, Christian Scott, and Leo Nocentelli, Art Neville and George Porter of the Meters.
