Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey (PressExposure) July 15, 2009 -- There's not much good news coming out of the Motor City these days ... until now!
Detroit's trio crew Black Lagoon, (BL) may just well be the stimulus package this country needs.
Hip Hop is alive and well and evolving thanks to the talents of Detroit's own Black Lagoon (BL). Kain Bang, Empact and Amadeus each lend their talents to create the unique sound that is Black Lagoon. An opening act for superstar artists like Jay-Z and Lil Wayne, BL has launched their new single, "Fever." With hypnotizing beats and insightful lyrics, Black Lagoon both thrills and inspires audiences wherever and whenever they perform.
Black Lagoon has been working in the studio for the last several months perfecting their latest offering titled Certified Stars. The much anticipated album is due to drop this year on their own BL Record label. Certified Stars represents the synergy of many musical elements. The main ingredient is hip hop but it is sweetened with elements of blues, rock, jazz and gospel creating a sound that is as diverse as its audience. Adding to its innovation, BL has created this outstanding album with live instrumentation. It's no surprise that the first single, "Fever" is having success on multiple radio formats. This talented trio has been described as possessing "the soul of a Marvin Gaye, the sex appeal of LL Cool J, and the polish of an Antwerp diamond." (Jetset Magazine).
Success is no stranger to BL. Their lead single, "Star", launched in 2005 got heavy radio rotation nationally and throughout the UK. "Star" was voted Detroit's #1 song, receiving both a coveted Detroit Hip Hop and Spudd in the Hood Award.
"On our next project, we've scaled down. This is a more focused and collaborative project," says Amadeus, describing the bond the group has maintained while working on their second album. "This album is an honest reflection of all three of us."
Certified Stars, is a poignant album centering on contemporary issues like politics and religion "Our music brings light to dark situations," Amadeus explains. "The name Black Lagoon describes the visual aspects of life in the city. "There's always light at the end of the tunnel. We want to be that light."
"Fever" available on iTunes
