One of the most anticipated albums of the year, sad to announce, is also the last for Detroit native artist RenCen CoolBeanz. The album was released as a digital download only on Tuesday, March 13th, 2012 in respects to the world he created online. His last studio recording will be followed up by massive performances and videos that will keep RenCen CoolBeanz legacy alive. With the last recording rightfully titled, Inspiration: My Last Album, the eclectic musical influences that helped him hone in on his effervescent sound is sure to captivate listeners across all genres.
With years of hard work, blood, sweat, tears and then some under RenCen’s belt, he is definitely the ideal artist to make a soundtrack relatable to all independent artists, despite the craft. Every song on the 32 track album are considered scenes to a movie that depicts the euphoric highs and sometimes miry trenches of indie artistry through RenCen’s eyes. So it was fitting for the album to be mixed in actual surround sound. “This album is like the adventures of the downside of trying to be successful and being on the verge of quitting and fighting through all of those obstacles and monsters to continue the quest for success.”Inspiration: My Last Album will also give the universal music lovers an earful being that it does not shy from multiple genres. “Every track was made with a movie scene in mind. I literally wanted to make an album full of movie scores. This is why it’s 2 hours long… just like a movie. I would say that it’s a musical experience that you’ve never had in life- period. If you’re a fan of multi-genres of music and creativity you are going to lose your damn mind when you hear this.” When asked to describe the sound (which was all recorded live) CoolBeanz’s painted it as: “it’s a musical mixing pot of: Nirvana, The Chronicles of Narnia(the movie and sound track), Scott Pilgrim VS the World (the Movie & Sound Track), Jay-Z, Cold Play, Alanis Moresette, Tron (the movie), Paramore, Gym Class Heroes, Daft Punk, Coreen Bailey Rae, Linkin Park, RadioHead, Portis Head, Flogging Molly & N.E.R.D., all smothered in CoolBeanz and real emceeing!!! #EPIC!!!”
Inspiration: My Last Album features emerging talent, strategically placed by RenCen CoolBeanz, such as producers Jay Norm, Randy Lynch, Que (Lead vocalist of Final Cue), Diff Jones (vocalist) , Steffanie Christi’an (vocalist), and a host of others. “I wanted to only work with people who aren’t known or popular yet to give them a chance to be heard and inspired. I met Ashley Christine at a fashion show,she told me she was a big fan of mine and wanted be a singer. I made her sing for me right then and put her on the album the next day.” If that isn’t enough to convince you of his passion for the independent artist, allow yourself to indulge in his latest and final masterpiece- digital downloads only-. The album is available on major online retailers such as iTunes, Amazon.com, Spotify, Myspace Music, and more.
