Long Beach, CA (PressExposure) May 16, 2014 -- The rapper, songwriter, and performer of hip-hop music known as Klutch has released his latest single, "That's Klutch." The single has been produced by Hollywood Legend and published on the Halo Nation LLC music label. "That's Klutch" is the first official release from the hip-hop artist which will be promoted over public radio, and has been edited for radio play. Rhythmic, bassy, and packed with lyrical flips and turns to entertain listeners with ears for urban poetry, "That's Klutch" is the most recent reason why fans of rap and hip hop have been paying so much attention to this rapidly climbing star of the street.
Klutch cites as main artistic influences such musicians as Eminem, Tupac Shakur, Dr. Dre, Jay Z, Drake, Lupe Fiasco, Metallica, Guns 'n' Roses, and Michael Jackson. As this widely varied grab bag of monumental talents may imply, "That's Klutch" showcases Klutch's sound and style to be an eclectic mix of tones from the old school and the new, with polished horn samples and catchy piano melodies, sonic elements in both the high and low frequencies. The back beat leaves plenty of space for groove while remaining one of the song's best attributes. The beats don't try to be the main attraction, however, which spotlight is appropriately taken up by Klutch, himself.
Asked to comment on the direction he and Hollywood Legend took with his new single, Klutch writes, "[I think] the song shows my lyrical ability flowing smoothly on a non-traditional hip-hop beat, showing my diversity of skills."
Hailing originally from the Philippines, Klutch was born in 1987 and raised in Abqaiq, Saudi Arabia. He moved to America for schooling without his family when he was 15 years old, and is now based in Milwaukee, WI. Klutch had learned to play guitar by the age of 12. Talent shows and other public venues gave him all the room he needed to develop his stage presence and delivery, and by the time he had reached his junior year of college, the public started to take notice.
"In 2010," writes Klutch, "my junior year in college, it transitioned from a hobby to a career. The rest is history."
Klutch is expected by many audiophiles to be the first Filipino/Asian hip-hop artist to break out of the underground scene.
"That's Klutch" by Klutch, produced by Hollywood Legend, is available online worldwide. Get in early.
