Mackadenice – My Own – New Music video

Mackadenice
Mackadenice

Mackadenice‘s (MD) music is a prime and dominant influence in his life’s pursuit of the hip hop industry which has been a source of exhilaration for him over the years. As a native of the State of Virginia, born November 11, 1985 in Alexandria, Virginia, his musical influences were surrounded by notorious talents such as Timberland, Pharrel Williams, Chris Brown, Trey Songz and Missy Elliot. Nurtured and raised by his mother, he lived in a fatherless household. The minute details that he does recall concerning his father are that he possessed considerable musical gifts and is of Italian decent. The lack of a father-son relationship in his life still lingers on and continues to affect him in ways that is only felt by him. The genesis of “MD” came when he discovered his musical gifts displaying tuneful and lyrical talents at a young age by performing in various shows when he was growing up and also while serving in the military. The one outstanding accomplishment that resonates the most was his performance in the Youth Alcohol & Drug Abuse Prevention Project when he was 16 years of age. Upon graduating high school, “MD” explored the need to serve on a more elevated level.

http://www.mackadenice.com/

After joining the Military in 2004, “MD” aspired to be a part of something bigger than himself and contribute his military service to his country. Painstakingly believing that it was a privilege to fight for his country, “MD” would eventually learn that this decision would result in being the ultimate sacrifice with a huge price tag. After serving one tour of duty in Norfolk, Virginia, “MD” decided it was time to make a serious endeavor within his career which eventually resulted in a transfer to Manama, Bahrain in 2008. This decision led to the birthing and creation of the third part of “Cerberus, Ven-Roc”. While in Bahrain, he established himself in the entertainment arena by performing in local contests and live shows such as the esteemed Red House Hiphop Festival in 2009.

 

This venue landed “MD’s” picture in the Gulf Weekly. Subsequently, he was fortunate enough to network with Italian Director/Producer Pierro Ali Passatore. Mr. Passatore has since become a valued and promising asset to” MD’s” team. As the state-of-the-art in his profession, he is prominent for his noteworthy and distinguished talents as an actor, editor and director. Preeminently, he proceeded to collaborate with “MD” on multiple tracks, including the 2015 single “What Now – A Journey Into the Mind of a Soldier.”

Biography

After the release of “MD’s” first two mixtapes in 2009, “World Tour” and “Katching Seazon”, this marked the start of his legacy. These mixtapes provide you with a taste of “MD” aka Ven-Roc’s origin and exploits while serving overseas. However, through all the ladies and late nights, “MD” still had his military obligations first and foremost. Throughout his 3 years in Bahrain, “MD” was sent to war-torn areas and experienced things that would in turn mold him into the man he is today. In an effort to build a relationship with his only son whom he recently determined that he had fathered, “MD” decided to return to the States in 2010. Not returning home as the same man he was when he left, his music became a source of therapy, giving him a mental outlet and the ability to portray his military lifestyle and experiences as well as the difficulties faced with his return to the States. Struggling with the adaption of the familiar yet new environment and being deterred from the main reason for his return, “MD” found himself in constant battles with depression, anger and confusion. MD would not let this chain of events take him away from his passion and he would go on to release “Real As it Gets: The Mixtape”, “S.N.S. EP”, and the 3-volume series “O.T.H.” between 2010 and 2013. Each mixtape transmits to the listener a little more of “MD’s” life–another slice of his story. As “MD” prepared to separate from the military in early 2012, he was unceasingly being tried and tested by the mother of his son. After unsurpassed suffering from parental alienation from the time it was discovered that he was a father, he still compassionately and diligently continues to fight to build a relationship with his son….

Taking away the opportunity to be what he longed for as a child has put a dark hole in his heart that only his son can fill. In the same year “MD” separated from the military, he came upon some alarming yet awakening news. Unknowingly, “MD” had been battling cancer for a number years, having experienced intense symptoms since 2007. While trying to digest the news of his cancer, “MD” also discovered he was impaired with a new syndrome of mental instability that plagues many veterans once they are no longer on active duty known as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). After years of doctors’ appointments, copious amounts of pills and surgeries, “MD” has made it through his battle with cancer yet still suffers from the debilitating side effects of PTSD and the pharmaceuticals he has been required to take throughout his treatment. Although stricken by life and its unknowns, “MD” continually manages to turn these series of shortfalls and medical conditions into fuel.

Having had a chance to work with the likes of Ryan West and Just Blaze at Stadium Red Studios, his first official single was released in 2014. The single entitled “Someday” featuring I4NI artist David Ray and is an inspiring single displaying “MD’s” ‘Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop’ attitude. Coupled with the release of his 9th project, I.D.G.A.F. We still had to do it…, he puts together one of his greatest collections to date. This unpredictable, high intensity mixtape will be one to remember as “MD”” continues to tell his story every step of the way.

Now in 2016 “MD’s” odd intensity style and lyrical delivery continues to bring you his stories of pain, pleasure, love and reality. On the verge of completing his tenth project, “MD” turned a couple tracks for an online contest into what will be his first official album entitled “The Contestants.” Slated to be released at the end of 2016, “The Contestants” has turned out to be a compilation of songs that will open your eyes to what a man is capable of doing when given a proper cause. In an effort to establish himself on an international level, “MD” traveled to Italy for 35 days to once again work with Piero. This trip was a monumental moment for “MD” as he stepped out of his comfort zone and laid it all on the line.

New single from featured on on ABC Jan 14 at 9pm CST visit

https://twitter.com/delcastilloband/status/420984755803258880

DEL CASTILLO began as a CD project for family back in the winter of 2000 and has become a symbol of the cross-cultural power of music with their eclectic blend of Flamenco, Rock, Latin, Blues, and World music.

Between the release of their first CD, Brothers of the Castle back in 2001, to their 2006 release, Brotherhood, Del Castillo has received an astonishing 18 awards including SXSW/Austin Music “Album of the Year” Awards for Vida (2002) and Brotherhood (2006), “Band of the Year (2003)”, ASCAP’S “Best Independent Group of the Year (2005)”, and Austin Music Pundits “Best Live Act (2004)”.

Rolling Stone calls Del Castillo “tumbling brilliance on nylon-string classical guitars” with “eruptions of technique and taste (that) conjure images of Eddie Van Halen fronting early Santana (with an assist from the Gipsy Kings).

Film Director Robert Rodriguez attended a Del Castillo concert in 2002 and a great friendship developed between the two. Rodriguez then enlisted the group to contribute music to the soundtracks of his movies, such as “Spy Kids 3D”, “Once Upon a Time in Mexico”,“Sin City”, and “GRINDHOUSE”, and perform with him at the premieres. Rodriguez was so impressed with Del Castillo that he wanted to record with them, so together, they formed CHINGON and recorded an amazing electric rendition of the Mexican classic song, “Malaguena Salerosa”. Quentin Tarantino loved it so much that he re-did the ending sequence of “Kill Bill Vol. II” to fit the song into his movie.

By 2004, Del Castillo was touring nationwide across the country playing with such diverse acts as Styx, Los Lonely Boys, Ozomatli, Don Henley, Los Lobos, and Willie Nelson and continued tour non-stop through 2006. They have performed at three of Willie Nelson’s 4th Of July Picnics, and at Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival, and they have made numerous national and local TV appearances.

Willie Nelson enjoyed Del Castillo so much that he re-recorded his song “I Never Cared For You” with the group (which is included on Del Castillo’s Brotherhood CD) and calls it “his favorite version”. Nelson has become a good friend of the band as well and the two look forward to touring together again soon.

During 2008, the band began playing major festivals all over the country and even Canada and widening its audience at a much more rapid rate. At California’s famous Strawberry Music Festival, they were deemed the highlight of the festival and broke the merchandise sales record. Immediately after their incendiary debut performance at the Vancouver Folk Festival in Canada, they were selected to play the headlining stage for 2009.

Rick and Mark del Castillo were recently selected in December 2008, by Gibson Global, to be two of only about SIX guitarists in the world to launch their new state-of the-art Dark Fire Gibson Les Paul guitar line.

The band continues to tour throughout the country, thriving on performing live and building new audiences, and songwriting and recording are a priority during breaks in their tour schedule.
