MCMI REPORT: CHORDZ CORDERO - A Day With My Favorite Producers (Soultape)

Intaphaze/MCMI Records’ Chordz Cordero finally returns with his new solo project, “CHORDZ CORDERO – A Day With My Favorite Producers (Soultape)”. The songs were recorded in between albums, as a way to keep the creative juices flowing. Now it is available for free (or optional donation) on Bandcamp.

MCMI REPORT: CHORDZ CORDERO - A Day With My Favorite Producers (Soultape)I decided to release it now, to show love to all who have supported my official group album with Sir Manley, The HighBred and all my projects over the years. This gives fans some more music to listen to while I am working on a solo album and some more group projects, coming soon. – Chordz Cordero

Born out of his passion for Hip Hop & Soul, this “Soultape” explores Chordz’ many thoughts and emotions on his journey through life! “A Day With My Favorite Producers” was completely recorded and mixed by Chordz himself in his basement studio. It’s straight up Soul, unpolished and raw! Even so, he did do a video for one song, produced by Black Milk, called Street Life. The video was shot and edited by Chordz brother J’Mel Lu, who has been building his directorial resume with videos from King Jerz, V2, Rell Peso and of course, his brother Chordz, who co-directs some of the videos as well.


You can stream or download the rest of Chordz’ homage to his favorite producers from Bandcamp and if you missed The HighBred LP dropped last year, it is available as a CD and digital download as well. And don’t forget to check out the last HighBred video, 3rd Stone Blues ft PH aka Pumpkinhead, here. #ripPH

CHORDZ CORDERO

Chordz Cordero is a Jamaica Queens artist that has been perfecting his skills as an emcee, singer, producer, and musician since a child. He has collaborated with artists such as St. Joe Louis, Brokn.Englsh, Daniel Joseph, Swave Sevah, PH and GMS, to name a few. A few years ago, a chance encounter with PH led to some musical collaborations with MCMI.

 “I met PH at a Jean Grae concert at Highline Ballroom a few years back, when he was performing with his former group Brooklyn Academy. After a few chats we got together to do some tracks for both of our projects.“ – Chordz

PH introduced Chordz to GMS and Blitzkrieg, co-founders of MCMI Records.  Hearing great talent and potential, they decided to work with Chordz to release some music. Chordz’ first work on the indie label was a collaboration with GMS, who laid the musical foundations for the song FREEDOM: How We Get.

FREEDOM-cover-art-570

The song is an ode to personal spiritual freedom, with production by GMS and vocals by Cordero. Besides making the beat, GMS plays flute on the track, while Chordz takes ’em to church with his original heartfelt lyrics about struggle, perseverance and redemption. Released digitally on January 15th, 2012, just in time for freedom fighter Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday, the song was very well received all over the world, getting airplay as far away as South Africa, where some producers put out an unofficial, unauthorized dance remix of the record. An official dance remake of the song is in the works and will appear on an upcoming project.

After Freedom, Chordz dropped a project with label mate PH (“This Is Not a Tyler Perry Movie“) and an EP with DC producer JUDAH (“Catalyst: [E]volution (EP)“), on DubMD Promotions. The two projects received a flood of positive feedback from the blogosphere and have expanded Chordz audience, doing well throughout Spain, Germany, Australia, Japan, the UK and the United States.

In 2015, Chordz dropped “The HIGHBRED LP“, a collaboration with fellow MC Sir Manley and producer Boonie Mayfield, on MCMI Records. He is available for collabs and choruses and will be putting out more music soon.
