San Diego’s REMEDYBYREQUEST is one of the great undiscovered hip-hop artists of California. He’s a platinum artist waiting to happen for the right lucky record label. A seasoned veteran of the hip-hop scene, Remedy has been plying his trade and perfecting his craft to the delight of rabid rap fans all over the region.
REMEDYBYREQUEST'S skills shine through bright and clear in his chosen genre. Combining a mastery of verbal flow and production know-how, every detail of his hip-hop music merges in a synergy of talent and profound musical instinct.
His crisp wordplay, smooth lyrical continuity and focused delivery make for punchy, addictive rhythms that summon major grooves, even without considering the DJ aspect of the game.
But then there’s that. Besides his compositional skills and his ability to shape those words and images into cutting edge rap, there’s the matter of REMEDYBYREQUEST'S beats. The hooks unleashed by the fine-tuned textures of the instrumental side of his craft attack with razor-sharp points, sinking in deep and pulling hard on the listener.
REMEDYBYREQUEST'S music conjures a sense of power – the energy of a smart, charismatic personality releasing his art through potent music. “Music makes me feel invincible,” he says. And he doesn’t take that power lightly. Music is a tool, a powerful mechanism for shaping minds and culture.
“It has the power to influence, the power to heal, the power to bring people together from all backgrounds, the power to control minds,” REMEDYBYREQUEST asserts. “I’m very passionate about music. I breathe, eat, sleep music. There’s not a day that goes by where my life is not influenced by music.”
REMEDYBYREQUEST"S lyrics find their strength through an artist’s eyes wide open to reality in all its manifestations. He is open to more than just the stereotypical negatives often associated with his genre. There are the “trials and tribulations that we all go through,” he says. But there are also the “joys and triumphs in our lives, the simple things in life that may not mean much to some but to others, a great deal.” He finds his ultimate inspiration in others who, like him, live by dedication and passion and, most importantly, who never give up.
Writing his music is an everyday – and intimate – part of his life. He always opens himself up, becoming a channel for the music, letting the song speak for itself. “It’s important for the chemistry of the song,” he says.
REMEDYBYREQUEST has not only proven his mettle in the studio – he’s also captivated audiences from behind the mic on stage. He defeated the best 50 hip-hop groups in the San Diego area and was awarded the Open Mic Massacre Undisputed Heavyweight Championship Belt. He also finished high in the rankings – against 75 others – in Long Beach’s Open Mic Massacre, taking second place in a hair-breadth-close decision by the judges. REMEDYBYREQUEST'S new project is due to hit the streets sometime in 2013, with the first single slated to reach fans’ ears in the spring.
