Portland's hip hop and r&b scene has really come into the public eye within the last year, and Eyrst Records, an imprint that was started by producer Neill Von Tally and former Portland Blazers player Martel Webster, is in the middle of that scene. The label's next release is LA-by-way-of-Portland MC, Myke Bogan. Past Bogan releases hit the number 14 spot on iTunes Top 100 and the Bandcamp hip-hop charts the day it dropped, and he's been covered by AllHipHop.com, The Source, Flood, Okayplayer.com, Hip Hop Weekly, Hip HopDX, Paste, and even XXL’s The Break. He has successfully set the precedent for his stylized visuals and dynamic delivery, coupled with a charismatic and fiery persona, earning him more than 800,000 video views and landing on the same stage as hip-hop legends Snoop Dogg, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Wu Tang Clan, and more.
Myke Bogan will release "Pool Party" (with contributions from Michael Christmas, Blossom, Neill Von Tally, and The Last Artful, Dodgr) on Aug 18 via Eyrst Records. Fall tour plans are firming up.
