New Album: Femapco – NORTH AMERICAN IDOL

a2263418041_10

 

Femapco, known for his “in your face style” rap, is making serious inroads across North America, with a style that ranges from fast double time articulate flow, to serious touching emotion, to downright grimey and humorous, he is crossing many musical boundaries. Featuring songs with Hopsin, Kool Keith, Madchild, Moka Only, Snak the Ripper, Evil Ebenezer and a song produced by Dame Ritter of Funk Volume (Hopsin, Dizzy Wright) NORTH AMERICAN IDOL is powerful and diverse,. The album captures multiple hip-hop genres ranging from radio friendly singles, to deep underground sound. Femapco is a master of using very artistic, clear and concise way of painting a musical picture through lyrics. Noted for his catchy hooks and distain for unrealistic image, Femapco stands out in a crowd of hip-hop that is otherwise saturated by rappers too focused on bling and swag.

a2304001873_10

 

 

My name is Don Miguel and I am a producer from Long Island, NY. I just released my debut production album “Waiting For Carmine”. It features many artists including ST 2 Lettaz of G-Side, Guilty Simpson, Percee P, Blacastan, Big Remo, Boldy James, Rapsody, Rashad, and many more.

As a session musician (Guitar, Bass, Drums, Keys, Vocals) I’ve worked on records for Ne-Yo, Stalley, Meek Mill, TT, The Block Beattaz, and more. 
I am currently promoting “Waiting For Carmine.” My next project is a collaborative album with an artist from London SamueL. That album is called “LDNYC.” I am also playing in a band called Gamblers, we are set to release our album in 2015 and it is called “Small World.””

The Spotlight on: Don Miguel

The Spotlight is on…

Don Miguel

When did you fall in love with H.E.R.

- Don Miguel: I fell in love with hip hop in the mid 90s when I was a little kid. I used to watch MTV all day and that’s when they played videos from all those great artists. When Wu Tang Forever came out I would go to this older kid’s house across the street from me and listen to that and he would smoke cigarettes. I remember Biggie and Snoop from that time as well. Then when The Chronic 2001 and The Slim Shady LP dropped I was addicted.

 

MC/DJ/Producer/Graff Writer/Bboy ?

- Don Miguel: I am a producer first and foremost, I do a little spitting for fun. Just sitting around free-styling and bullshitting with my friends mostly. Other than hip hop production I play guitar, drums, bass, and sing. I can fart my way around a keyboard melody too but I can’t really jam on the keys that well.

 

Dayjob or no Dayjob?

- Don Miguel: I have two day jobs, I work for an independent medical courier service and I wait tables at a bar my family owns and1237119_10151895472314136_1317021008_n operates in manhattan. I work on music everyday though, it’s what I work hardest at. When you’re passionate about something it’s not really work it’s like food that you need. You have all this extra energy and super human powers when you’re in the throes of the music gods and that’s the place I love the most. Whether it’s playing in a band or making a beat or just doing other music/work related things I’m always trying to do something.

 

5 All time favorite records?

- Don Miguel: Wow, that’s hard. Ok since this is a hip hop site I’ll just stick to that genre. I have to say, Fugee’s- The Score, Dr. Dre The Chronic 2001, Notorious BIG- Ready To Die, Mr. Muthafuckin eXquire- Kismet, The Roots- Undun. If you ask me that question again tomorrow it could change though! Too much good shit out there.

 

Internet: gift or curse?

- Don Miguel: The internet is a gift. My album “Waiting For Carmine” couldn’t have existed if email and Twitter weren’t around. I am very grateful for the opportunities and relationships that came to me because of the internet. If you want to get into things like my generation’s attention span, or a “Her” situation, that’s a whole different conversation.

Biggest accomplishment:

- Don Miguel: The biggest accomplishment in my entire life so far is completing my album “Waiting For Carmine.” It was a three year process and I collaborated with over 30 people. It was my first experience doing a lot of video work as well. It was an amazing ride. Now I hope people hear it.
 

Why should people check you out?

- Don Miguel: People should check out the album because I spent a lot of time and energy on it. It’s the best music I have to offer right now and the rappers are all on point. It’s got some serious content on there and the musicality is at a high level because I have a lot of amazing musicians and singers on there as well. It’s more dense than what you are going to hear on the radio but you can absolutely nod your head to it. There’s some pretty serious features on there as well for hip hop heads. Guilty Simpson, Boldy James, Rapsody to name just a few.

 

Inspiration?

- Don Miguel: I’m inspired by all the wonderful artists in the world and by my family and by my musician friends in Long Island. I also like to eat delicious foods of the universe and drink beer and watch sports with my buddies as well. And coffee is also a big inspiration.

 

 

Favorite song you produced/MCd on?:

- Don Miguel: My favorite song I’ve produced is probably the intro to “Waiting For Carmine” called Cabrón. It encompasses what the album is all about and I recorded sounds in my bar and at an attorney’s office. It also has my buddies Rice Cultivation Society and Delicate Steve playing beautiful music on it.
 

 
Why do you still love H.E.R.?

- Don Miguel: I still love hip hop because just like any form of music there’s no shortage of amazing material always coming out. I’ve also been playing drums since the age of 6 so I’ve also loved things that were rhythmic. When I got into sampling that took it to a whole different level.
