Turn Me Up – Music Video
“Turn Me Up” the latest Single to be taken from @Scrillamc highly anticipated album “Bangers & Cash” is immenently due for release following the video shoot.
Somewhere in Birmingham (March 2014) U.K @scrillamc met up with 360 productions for the video shoot in a studio location. The shoot was planned weeks earlier following the introduction of the track to Major Cash of 360 productions, who immediately took a liking to the music. Following extensive discussions between the team, the story board was presented pending agreement on a decision to set a date which in the end was a formality once @Scrillamc approved the work. Ease of approval was due to the high end creative ideas put forward for this project by everyone involved.
The video project has been in pipeline for a few months now, following initial discussion with the team. The track, produced by Elementree, mixed and mastered at lmp studio (liquidmusic Productions) was first introduced to Cat Park of Ten Letter Pr in 2013 for video production. Highly impressed with the track, referred the job onto Mastermind media (Flava Tv) for video production. However talks stalled as agreement could not be reached between both parties and the project was put on hold, until now.
The progress of the project continued in a meeting btw @Scrillamc and Pete Bassett of “Quite Great Pr” which took place 1st of May 2014. Following the meeting, Pete and his team will be coming on board with PR & Marketing services to formulate a plan for the release and distribution of material to associate press.

With experience in P.R for a host of key contacts and clients, the project will benefit immensely form his input and strategic direction in acquiring placements in the press. The release date for the project will be announced in the coming weeks once agreement has been reached on the plan and target press aimed at for the project.

Interview and Performance on BBC Introducing Radio
After a busy summer schedule, one of the projects Scrilla worked on (The Blues Master) was picked up by BBC Radio (BBC Introducing regional radio station). From Scrilla’s perspective the track, a collaboration between himself and another rapper (72theSign) was a last minute decision based on previous commitments. The beat (Hip Hop) produce by Kingpin Nineohfive sent across for work captured his imagination and exact mood at the time as he decided to work of the saxophone insert within the beat structure. When asked, off the record Scrilla said the beat took him back in time hence why he came up with the Hook lyrics associated with “The Blues”. The beat was structured with the verses leading up to the hook but he had to come up with a concept for the rap song and the saxophone served as inspiration for “The Blues” Concept. We would like to use this opportunity to thanks the BBC Introducing platform for supporting “music uk”, “music hip hop” and “music grime”
Rapper Scrilla was scheduled for a series of meetings with media and PR firm Mahvrick Networks in Salt Lake City Utah. Firm owner Richard Mahee planned the meeetings for the rapper who was due at this year’s Sundance Film Festival in January 2013. Due to unforseen circumstances Scrilla was refused entry citing section 214b of the Immigration and Nationality Act even though British Nationals are thought to be under the waiver programme. This unfortunate event meant the cancellation of a series of meetings which included a studio session with Damon Elliot CEO of Presidential Records, under which he has produced and released hit singles for various music artists such as Keysha Cole, Gwen Stefani,including his mother Dionne Warwick. Following this event the rapper has sort to reschedule these meetings while the team finds a solution to the root cause of the issue with the Consulate authorities.
Consequentially, Scrilla has teamed up wit LMP Records a UK based production label to finish work on his B&C project. To date a series of songs have been recorded with LMP over-seeing production and the next Single has already been reviewed by top music video directors in the UK who all expressed an interest in directing and producing a video for it.
You can catch Scrilla performing his next 2 gigs at the BYT showcase on the 3rd of April 2013, Cambridge Corn Exchange and 4th April 2013 @ the RMS showcase London.
After week’s of promo and voting the Coast2Coast song competition hosted by Grammy Award winning singer Chrisette Michele has finally ended with Scrilla picked out as one of the winners in the competiton. The song in question entered in the competition by the SMR team is titled “Cry For Love” which was produced my CG Productions features vocals from RnB singer Nira Diana, now living in Montreal Canada. The song once again showcases the finely polished talent of Scrilla, whose renouned song writing skills and talent is ahead of the times as quoted by the Coast2Coast A&R.
His ability to tell a story and captivate an audience backed by the soulful vocals of Nira Diana makes the song a sure fire hit. From concept to the finished product Scrilla took creative control and worked with Nira to deliver another timeless hit which has now been confirmed through the song being picked up by the Coast2Coast A&R for a feature on Grammy Award winniner – Chrisette Michele’s Mixtape.
After a two year hiatus, Chrisette Michele is coming back and teams up with Coast2Coast for her new mixtape Audrey Hepburn: An Audiovisual Presentation. To gear up for the epic release she will be hosting the 226th volume of the world famous mixtape series.
