SAN FRANCISCO, California- May 18, 2010 – Beatrock Music is proud to present the release of Power Struggle’s forth coming album REMITANCES, lyrics written by Nomi and production by Fatgums and Mister REY.
REMITTANCES- takes the listener on an intimate journey through the American landscape from the perspective of a working-class immigrant disillusioned by the American dream. With guest appearances by comrades and friends, verses rap stars and tastemakers, REMITTANCES reflects Nomi’s nomadic life-story that represents Minneapolis, Brooklyn, San Francisco and the Philippines. Remittances balances between subtle social commentary, to outright blood knuckle rage.
Over the past few years lead-vocalist Nomi has created an impressive resume releasing albums with groups like Oddjobs (Third Earth Music) and Kill the Vultures (Locust/Jubdoor). His music has been featured in Urb Magazine, Blow Up (Italy), Mixer, Yellow Rat Bastard, Time Out NY, SF Weekly, etc. Nomi has done extensive touring with groups like De La Soul, Atmosphere, Lyrics Born, Dj Shadow and Brother Ali. With a strong belief in Social Justice, Nomi is also committed to worker’s rights advocacy, working as a community organizer at the Filipino Community Center in the Excelsior District of San Francisco.
Producers Fatgums and Mister REY have also been prolific in their musical endeavors over the past few years. Notable production credit for Fatgums includes Bambu’s two latest solo albums, …exact change… and …paper cuts…, as well as the collaborative FATGUMS X BAMBU ep. Mister REY is responsible for the entire score to Denizen Kane’s latest album Brother MIn’s Journey to the West.
Together, Nomi, Fatgums and Mister REY deliver an album abundant in musical pleasure that addresses the discontent of exploited people, yet serves as an inspiration to keep struggling for power.
