"ArchRyval "Southern Hostility""

As independent artists continue raising the talent bar, it's only a matter of time before they're competing directly on airwaves with major label opponents. Until then, Flave and Shlep will make their mark in the hip-hop world with their Oct. 13th U.S. debut, Southern Hostility. On Southern, the duo commence themselves as multi-talented singers, lyricists and producers on 16 tracks merging hip-hop, rock and rhythm and blues. Production quality is high; the beats are inventive, groove-able and at times buoyant. Although the album title may denote violence, Southern Hostility is a surprisingly clean and positive album, mute of the tired "bling-bling" talk and raps about drive-by's, partying and degrading women found in so much of today's mainstream rap and hip-hop. ArchRyval's writing is at a caliber where they don't need to overuse such references to make an impact. ArchRyval released the single "Rock You" to radio, a light, club-friendly, danceable track with music and vocal samples from Yarbrough and Peoples, classic "Don't Stop the Music". The song is the first released by the duo in the U.S. The next released single will be the standout second track, "Finer Thangs", a pop-based hip-hop tune with a positive message contemplating what life would be like with the "finer
things." - ReviewYou.com

This musical odyssey has been a tumultuous road for N.O.M.A.D.72, but he remains vigilant while being a member of the U.S. Army. He formed his own production company, Sound Barrier INC, and is currently seeking management. Through it all he has amassed a catalog of over 400 songs and continues the pursuit for that one opportunity to shine and be heard. In the face of adversity, No Optimistic Mind Accepts Defeat…

N.O.M.A.D.72 purchased his first keyboard in 1998 and basically hasn’t looked back since. He churned out tracks for local acts in his native Pensacola, Florida, also solely producing for the Hip Hop group Live Wire that he was a part of. In May 1998 his military service took him to Tokyo, Japan, and in May 1999 he put together tracks for the first official Live Wire release “Real Til I Die”, an underground disc on Megaforce/Schooler Records Japan. Through some valuable connections he also featured with BMG Japan major recording artist Showlee on her single "Faith" and recorded video game songs for KONAMI and keyboard demo songs for YAMAHA. Live Wire also performed at several venues throughout Tokyo, the two most notable being Club Fire in Yokohama and having the honor of being booked at Don Cornelius' SOULTRAIN CAFE for the month of March 2000. After returning to Florida in 2002 he became co-owner of Undaground Sector Entertainment where he began assembling his own roster of artists. During this time he created "The Wake-Up Party" radio introductions for "Ray-Ray", 92.9 WBLX's morning show disc jockey reaching over 2 million listeners daily. He produced the release “Southern Hostility” in August 2004, the first project from the label for the group ArchRyval (formerly known as Live Wire). The disc received critical acclaim and included work from Steven Stewart hailing from Helsinki, Finland, and the sultry vocals by Yarbrough and Peoples on the sampled classic, "Rock U". The song “Rock You” and The Roots' "Don't Say Nuthin'" were the only Hip Hop/Rap singles included on the CMJ On Air Sampler, a compilation disc that was given to an estimated 10,000 people attending the CMJ Music Marathon October 13th-16th 2004, and distributed in issue #850 of CMJ New Music Monthly.

The moniker N.O.M.A.D.72 perfectly describes the mentality of this Piscean artist, producer, engineer, songwriter, and visionary. The acronym standing for “No Optimistic Mind Accepts Defeat” makes it clear-- sheer determination, perseverance, and a bit of stubbornness aren’t enough to keep one focused in today’s music world for you must love what you do. It is this unlimited love for Hip Hop and music in general that separates N.O.M.A.D.72.from the vast majority of so-called beat makers looking to make that quick buck. His style is an eclectic blend encompassing the elements of Hip Hop, R&B, and Funk with touches of Rock influences. Intense energy is poured into his work and the results are immediately evident when you press play.

N.O.M.A.D.72 is a member of BMI.
