The creative minds at Syntax Records have come together in full force to create a five song EP entitled “Syntax Records is Justified” inspired by the FX show Justified. With the premiere of the show’s second season premiering tonight at 10 p.m., Syntax is offering the EP as a free download
“The two main ingredients of Justified are country-living and street life which is what I know the least about” admittedly says Tim Trudeau, President of Syntax Records, “However once we were in the studio we were able to commandeer these fictitious characters and essentially let them write these songs.”
Trudeau, who goes by alias rocdomz (pronounced rock-domes) when in the studio, used his years of experience in production and songwriting to lead an all-star lineup that included in-house producer and Syntax Recording artist Shane Newville, member of Sackcloth Fashion, Sam Hart, Syntax Records own Director of Customer Development, Jeremiah Bonds, and of course brother of rocdomz, and Syntax Records co-founder, MaxOne.
The goal of this project was to create music that could be synchronized in the show. “Writing from the perspective of someone else throughout this whole project was a new endeavor for me, but the experience was awesome, the chemistry in the studio was irreplaceable” said Jeremiah Bonds, one of the project writers.
Justified is based on the works of crime novelist Elmore Leonard, including Leonard’s short story Fire in the Hole. It follows fictional character Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens getting tangled in the new criminal organizations moving into Harlan County. Season two picks up with a cliffhanger after an epic gun battle.

Back in the day it was often said, “Everything revolves around the DJ and the drummer.” While the elements of music are constantly being arranged, the DJ and the Drummer have always stood in the gap to keep the timing strong and the records spinning.
muzeONE is wrapping up work on his full length debut solo album for Illect Recordings. The Cold War will feature 14 new tracks of fresh raps that you’ve come to expect from him. On this record he bares his soul on several songs including the somber “A Grief Observed” which details the struggles he and his wife faced with their daughter’s health.

Role Model Records Artist, Spoken, gears up to release his newest project, 'Bright Days, Dark Nights', on April 26th 2011. “A lot has happened since “Up By 13: The Mixtape”. I knew what I wanted to happen, but I also understand that God in His sovereign will, may not agree and consequently not always give me what I think I need or want. With that in mind, I released Up By 13 having no idea what would happen. As far as I was concerned, it was just another drop in an ocean of music. Although I’m confident I’ve been blessed with a gift, as a young kid coming out of the Maple Leaf (Canada), I frankly didn’t know if I would measure up beside the amazing artists of today, putting out God-glorifying, and professional quality music. So I was pleasantly surprised when in such a short time, the Lord took me places I never imagined.
