Their first single “Return To Zion” #RAS refers to the Promised Land, promises fulfilled, which are there for the world to benefit from according to a Divine plan. A plan that loves life, respect between men, justice and true peace. A positive message that brings an understanding that all that happen is for the good.
This plan talks about a people on his land, with the heart turned to heaven but also to others …
“Retour a Sion” is the result of precise work, which is only the first draft of a sensitive and musical approach but more importantly, the beginning of a great story … that of an album that wants to be born and whose heart beats already.
The creation of this album will depend in part on your active participation, and if you are seduced, will result in you being the first beneficiaries of its fruits. Shmoolik, Saadya and friends plan to go far in the demand for quality in the transmission strong messages, deep and timeless values, but above all, in love that integrates music and sharing.

“Retour A Sion” #RAS parle de Terre Promise, de promesses acquises pour que le monde en bénéficie selon le plan établi. Un plan qui n’aime que la vie, le respect, la justice et la paix : des messages positifs révélant que tout cela est pour le Bien de toute la création.
Ce plan porte un peuple sur sa terre, avec le coeur tourne vers le Ciel mais surtout vers autrui…
“Retour A Sion” est le fruit d’un travail minutieux, qui n’est que le premier jet d’une approche sensible et musicale et surtout le début d’une grande histoire… celle d’un album qui veut naitre et dont le coeur bat déjà.
La création de cet album dépendra donc en partie de votre concours actif et, s’il vous séduit, vous en serez les premiers bénéficiaires car Shmoolik, Saadya et leurs amis projettent d’aller loin dans l’exigence de la qualité, dans la transmission de messages forts, de valeurs sûres et intemporelles, mais avant tout, dans l’amour intègre de la musique et du partage.

Before Diwon’s debut record, “New Game” there were the beats and pieces that brought his singles and full album to life. “Pre-Game” is a collection of never before heard instrumentals as Diwon shines a spotlight where his heart really lies, he is a true-school hip-hop head. DJ Booth called Diwon a “beatmaking buzzsmith,” and with the release of his instrumental album “Pre-Game” he keeps the focus on just that taking you into his world of instrumental madness.
The instrumentals are a breakneck journey through the strange loops of his unique artistic process, the instrumentals are variously built from funky-drummer style percussion or bass-heavy West Coast production, laced with everything from crunchy psychedelic guitars to Middle Eastern melisma. It’s the producer as auteur, every track taking you through the emotional space of the artist, like Kanye or Godard.
People talk about hip-hop going “post-regional,” but the Diwon’s instrumentals are post-national. New York kicks and snares meet Turkish melisma against funky basslines and live guitars. This is the music you wish you heard on airplanes.
“Pre-Game” sets the stage for Diwon’s future production. Who can say what that will sound like? It’s a big world, and Diwon is global.
In Kosha Dillz’s latest vlog , he attends a Macklemore show at the Nokia Theatre and trades freestyles with Macklemore backstage, rapping about “the irish guy and the kid with jewish star.” He also discusses toasting bagels with Ryan Lewis, and even pulls off some antics with the Thrift Shop guy Wanz.
With Macklemore beat boxing for Kosha Dillz and the vibe feeling so right, perhaps an official collaboration will happen in the future(?)
Gideon Raff is the creative mind behind the Israeli drama (Prisoners of War) that the award winning ‘Homeland’ series is based off of. Raff spends his time between Los Angeles and Tel Aviv, writing, directing and filming his next two, soon to be hit, tv shows. The first is Dig which will air on USA Network this fall and the second, which we are really excited about is a sort of reverse Homeland and is dubbed, Tyrant. Tyrant stars Israel’s own Moran Atias, model turned actress and producer, known for The Next Three Days (2010), Crash (2008) and Mother of Tears (2007). Tyrant premieres this month on FX. If you want to binge watch this like Homeland, you may have to wait a bit.
