97.9 The Beat Featured Video

I have a love hate relationship with my alarm clock. I need it to get me going to pay these bills but I hate the way it rudely slices into the solace of my REM sleep. R&B singer MeLa Machinko and Mr Len have tapped into this ubiquitous condition on their new EP, “9 AM Blues.”

“The project, produced almost entirely by Mr. Len (Company Flow, Dirty Disco Squares), is a snapshot of my life right now,” says Mela. “And it is some of my most honest, heartfelt and introspective work to date. (I talk like this is my 17th studio album, right? “Get a load of this broad, thinks she’s Eric freakin’ Clapton over here, amirite?” My bad. It’s true, though.”

The EP is available for sale on her Bandcamp page , BUT, in a #newrulesy-ish move, she will be offering the first two tracks for the price of a tweet! Meaning you’ll have to send a tweet about the project and then you can download the track for free.
