F.M. is the combination of the yin and the yang that is C-lew and Chazz. Both we're raised with heavy musical influences, Chazz "grew up next to the speaker" as he puts it. His father, a performer himself would often bring him along to band meetings. And his grandmother made sure he was always at church listening when the choir rehearsed. C-lew comes from a similar background and recalls long drives to school listening to kblx and piano lessons in the evening... The two California kids Formed an immediate bond upon meeting in high school gym class after realizing they were both raised largely by their mothers and 90's television.
Soon They began recording tracks using the built in mic on C-lews home computer but their passion for Music eventually led them to bigger things in Hollywood around 2008. While living together during C-lew's stint at sound engineering school they created the GENRE and style of hiphop they like to call "FRESHMUSIC". It is described as "Eclectic HIPHOP... With the Originality and flavor of the 90s." In other words, "Raw messages often put to uptempo, pop-style beats." The combination lends to a sound that is both futuristic and nostalgic with messages directly relevant to the present urban issues.
They had been steadily building relationships within the LA music scene but Their progress was halted when they were robbed for all of their studio equipment and personal belongings. They were then forced to make their way back to the bay area. A few years a brand new studio set-up and some crazy new music can wipe away all sour memories though. Chazz (23) and C-lew (22) believe they have observed the industry from the sidelines for long enough and seem to have been putting their knowledge to good use with the recent release of the Beloved "Benjjytape" which has listeners comparing the duo's dynamic to a younger Outkast. Such a statement feels good to two students of the old AND new school. HipHop is in need of new outsiders and F.M. intends to fill that void while encouraging self-improvement and individuality in a world of robotic clones
