When Bangs dropped his track “Take U To Da Movies” he was serious in succeeding as a rapper, unfortunately everyone else thought he was a joke. It seems like his delusions of grandeur paid off, believe it or not I just received a press release announcing that Sudanese born, Bangs just signed a new distribution deal for his debut release, the single “Take U to Da Movies” with HSM Distribution.
BANGS becomes the flagship artist for this emerging distribution and entertainment label which tout itself as
the Distribution (R)evolution. An entirely new way for artists to reach their target consumer and record buyer.
19-year old BANGSʼ fast-rising popularity is directly attributed to his video clip for “Take u to Da Movies”, going viral and catching on quickly without the help of any label backing. As BANGS had already captured international attention, it was important that his distribution company have the means to make his music available worldwide in a short time frame. A week after the contracts had been exchanged; HSM Entertainment has his single online with fans from all over the world able to purchase BANGSʼ music with the click of a button.
BANGS was born in North Khartoum, Sudan and spent two years in Egypt with his family before settling in Australia. A short 5
years after learning English BANGS recorded his track through a community outreach initiative at The Artful Dodgers Studios,
Gateway, Jesuit Social Services in collaboration with Living Music, a community centre and outreach program in Australia.
HSM Distribution is very excited about working with this budding artist and look forward to furthering BANGS’ music globally!
The release also reveals that Bangs recently performed to an audience of 53,000+ at Australia’s Big Day Out Tour with shows in both Syndey and Melbourne and is currently working on finishing his debut album “Hard to Be Up.”
If I was Jo Jo Simmons I would feel really bad right about now, EVEN BANGS GOT SIGNED SON!!!
