May 1, 2017 - The polls have closed for ROCKWIRED.COM's recent ARTIST OF THE MONTH campaign. Voters from all over the North America  made their vote count and rapper CHINO XL and singer RAMA DUKE are ROCKWIRED.COM's newest ARTISTS OF THE MONTH. This is the first time in the competition's history that we have had dual winners. During my talk with hip hop artist CHINO XL and rocker RAMA DUKE, I got to thinking about the shaky relationship between rock n roll and hip hop and how we don't hear much of the cross pollination of the two genres of music anymore. Therefore it's been a delight to hear both CHINO and RAMA come together and generate some serious sparks with their take on the RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS mainstay UNDER THE BRIDGE. It's hard for me to believe that it was 25 years ago that ANTHONY and FLEA and the rest of the CHILI PEPPERS dropped the somber ditty about alienation and finding one's sense of self in a world that has gone mad. Inspired by KIEDIS' battle with heroin addiction, UNDER THE BRIDGE has managed to stroke a broader meaning with listeners over the years and now CHINO and RAMA with the assist of GRAMMY winning producer JARED LEE GOSSELIN have molded this classic into a hard rocking, hip hop tour de force. Yes, new life has been blown into a classic that has hardly grown tiresome or trite with age but the real story for us is the coming together of these two formidable musical forces. In our interview with both CHINO and RAMA we were excited to learned that the chemistry between the two of them is still there. In fact the two of them, along with producer GOSSELIN, are currently working on a additional material for a new joint project called A BAD DAY FOR SORRY. In a time where rock and hip hop need each other more than ever, we've got to hand it to this dynamic duo for taking a stab at unity and putting out  a positive message. Not even our current president can claim that.


Other nominees for ARTIST OF THE MONTH included A WAR WITHIN, BLAMESHIFT, A LITTLE IT MORE, REMADA, DOCFELL & CO. and KRISTI LANE SINCLAIR.

ROCKWIRED.COM will be launching its latest ARTIST OF THE MONTH campaign on MAY 3, 2017. The nominees include C-NICE, SIGNALS OF BEDLAM, NO MORE MOMENTS, JAY GOREN, VAJRA, RUGBY ROAD and MEGAN FLECHAUS.
