"HYPEM.COM CISCO ADLER Feat. MOSES HAUGHTON -APPOLLONIA"

? Cisco Adler feat. Moses Haughton – Appollonia / Shwayze sidekick Cisco Adler continues his coattail ride with an pleasantly surprising mixtape that I actually listened to all the way through. “Appollonia” jumped out as an appropriate sample for no particular reason so just head over to his BandCamp for the whole stream/download.

"Hot Out The Oven: Moses Haughton"

I've had the pleasure of discovering a lot of underground, developing, and unknown artists while running The Baker's Dozen. Through the wonders of social networking, I give you Moses Haughton. I heard this guy's music and instantly got hooked. As I stated earlier on when talking about Aviator, hip-hop is transforming.

An ongoing transition to an alternative/pop sound is becoming more common and honestly I find it much more aesthetically pleasing in terms of sound and melody. Moses Haughton captures exactly what I'm talking about; an electronic blend of pop/alternative with a strong urban flow. If you've been skipping out on all the less known artists...this is the one to give a listen. He's on the rise so check out his Blog, become a fan on Facebook, Tweet, do whatever you can to spread "The Good Life" as he likes to call his music. Don't sleep on this one, his shit bumps. Spin the track!! - KudZiLLa


"cisco adler | supercali mixtape"

Moses Haughton has been on my radar for a while as he pursues his musical career, so it’s exciting to see he’s teaming up with Cisco to showcase his talents. Moses has a fresh voice, so we’ll definitely be following him as he expands into the scene."

"MOSES HAUGHTON"

"Moses Haughton is a diverse musician in the aspect of being able to use different genres and incorporating it into hip hop. His influence from pop, alternative, Motown, and hip hop creates a unique sound similar to this years breakout artist, B.O.B. He seems to continue to grow as an artist in which the comparison to Diddy comes in. The beat and the effects that he creates has that similar flow and rhythm as Diddy's group, Dirty Money. Moses seems to be one musician that we can definitely see/hear on the radio."

"Laurel grad goes back to class for music video shoot"

Holy Moses, this kid is good! Last month I watched the filming of a music video featuring 2005 Laurel High grad Moses Haughton Jr. that was shot in and around his alma mater. This kid is going places.

I have to admit that when I heard there was a music video being shot at the high school, I envisioned upper classmen doing karaoke with a camcorder. When I arrived, however, I immediately realized how wrong I was. This was a professional shoot from top to bottom, with all the attendant people and gear. I wonder if all music videos are this much fun to make?

Everyone was relaxed and having a good time, and I think the comfortable atmosphere was created by the easygoing direction of Old Town native John Lofton IV and his crew from Lofton Films, and by the roll-with-it attitude of Moses and his musical collaborator for this effort, Joe "Thursday"Capoluto.

Joe and Moses met two years ago at the Musician's Institute in Los Angeles. Moses had been performing locally since the age of 13, with appearances at The Bar None in D.C., our gone-but-not-forgotten Montpelier Festival, and a talent show and festival at LHS in 2005.

He had other prominent successes, winning MTV's Say What? Karaoke contest in 2003, with prizes that included a mini vacation for Moses and his family at a house in the Hamptons. At the famed Apollo Theater in Harlem, he placed third and was the only rapper to win an Amateur Night in 2004, and in 2007 he won first place on one of BET's Wild Out Wednesday's talent competitions.

While at the Musician's Institute, Moses interned with the Universal Music Group as a project manager for new media marketing, making lots of friends and musical contacts. During Friday morning meetings he got to rub shoulders with some current big names in the music industry, artists like 50 Cent, Maroon 5, Heavy D and Chester French.

Joe Thursday is an L.A. native who was in his second year at the Musician's Institute when he and Moses met. Joe had been wanting to put together a hip hop group for some time when he saw Moses perform and thought they'd be a good fit. From the sound of "Never Met Her," the song performed in the video (see a clip here), theirs is a winning combination. It's a fun song with a driving beat, young love lyrics and a definite California sound. On their soon-to-be-released debut CD, it is one of 11 songs that were either written, produced or performed by Joe or Moses.

Moses is a born performer; he's got the musical chops, the effortless dance moves, an engaging personality and an easy smile that will light up stage, screen and magazine covers. And to this observer he has the "it" factor, that certain something that can't be quantified but elevates some talented individuals to the level of stardom.

But perhaps the biggest thing Moses has going for him is the loving support of his family. His mom and dad, Renita Haughton and Moses Haughton Sr., were high school sweethearts and have been married for 25 years.

They live in Laurel and were both there during the video shoot, providing encouragement, advice, and enthusiastic praise on every take. And it's not just parental praise: Mom and Dad are real fans, they dig his sound. The fact that it also swells their hearts with pride and joy is just an added bonus. The same can be said for Lakieya and Chynna, who are not just Moses' sisters, they are also his biggest fans.

To top it all off, Moses is a nice guy. It's evident in the way he deals with people, from the people he works with, to strangers like me, to the kids who showed up to be extras in the video. Among those answering the casting call to play high school students in the video were three current LHS students: 11th graders Britnie Strait and Jessica Pinkney, and Jessica's sister, 10th-grader Jasmyn Pinkney; and Jessica and Jasmyn's mom, Marcella Callender, whom Jasmyn says is in "13th grade."

Among the Laurel High alumnus were Kevin Merrick (Class of '07), who has known Moses for 15 years. Kevin, who is playing for the "Big Red" semi-pro football team in Arbutus as he contemplates attending college, was a self-described "class clown" when he was at LHS. So it was no acting stretch for him when the director asked the extras to be rowdy for the classroom scene, causing Renita to comment, "If a high school class knows anything, they know how to be rowdy."

"Shoutout…Moses Haughton Jr"

"Not only does Washington, D.C. artist Moses Haughton Jr. have the potential to be the next big thing, but his style is impeccable. Moses and I became Facebook friends a few months ago, and since then I’ve downloaded his Pre-EP and am awaiting the arrival of his EP. Moses’ style is smooth like N.E.R.D. meets Kid Cudi meets B.o.B., and I think people will really dig him. My personal favorite track is Crashing Down (Lights,Camera, Action) (YouTube video Link below). Check out these links below to check out Moses’ stuff. The music isn’t enough though. Moses’ personal style is street sophisticated, and he’s lookin really fly in his recent DC Photoshoot. Moses has accomplished a lot already with appearances on “Say What Karaoke” and BET’s 106 n Park So whenever you’re starting to hear his tracks on the radio, and seeing him all over the place, I’ll be saying I told you so. Keep it up Moses."
