New York, NY (PRWEB) March 6, 2009
Transitioning from traditional boom bap Hip Hop to international club success is no easy task, but David RUSH is up for the challenge. The young performer/songwriter is positioned to take the world by storm with his single "Shooting Star," which hit radio in February via Mr. 305/Universal Republic. The song is currently enjoying Top 10 airplay on Miami's Power 96, and is available on iTunes.
Featuring Cash Money rock singer Kevin Rudolf and Miami rapper/Mr. 305 CEO Pitbull, the "Shooting Star Party Rock Remix" was finessed by famed producers LMFAO, and club DJ's are latching on quickly. The up-tempo dance track is a step away from the original version, which was produced by Hip Hop producer AYB.
David RUSH is also preparing a video for the 'Party Rock Remix' of "Shooting Star" as he readies a new street album entitled Moon Music for March release with his partners at Xequtive Board Music Group, and his full-length debut album for later this year.
David RUSH began writing music as a child in his home of Highland Park, New Jersey, and by high school he was immersed in Hip Hop culture. Although he loved music, he pursued a career in video production and enrolled at the Art Institute of Atlanta. David, then known as Young Boss, took advantage of his collegiate experience by learning as many technical skills as he could, including production and mixing.
Up-and-coming Atlanta producer Soundz sparked a cord with Young Boss, and the two stayed in touch after David moved back to New Jersey. They eventually created the song "Go Girl," and after a remarkable stint in clubs throughout the Mid-Atlantic region, David's music landed in the hands of Miami rap superstar Pitbull, who quickly signed Young Boss to his Mr. 305 label. Pitbull officially released "Go Girl," which featured Trina and Young Boss, on his 2007 Boatlift album. The song continues to be a club favorite with fans.
Although things seemed to be going well for Young Boss in his career, he was actually quietly coping behind the scenes with a condition known as Focal Glomerulosclerosis (FGS), which is scarring in the kidneys. Although doctors gave him only a year to live upon his first diagnosis in 2006, David kept his spirits high as he pressed on with his music. He did suffer a major setback early in 2007 with the illness, and began doing his own dialysis at home each day. He continues to live with FGS, but never allows the condition to affect his passion for his dreams.
Young Boss ultimately made the decision to become David RUSH, a more tangible version of the man behind the music. Accompanying the dash of realism in his name is David's magnetic, witty personality, lending to the creative force behind his own brand of "Moon Music." In late 2008 he released a collection of entirely original songs on the promotional project Feel The Rush Volume 1: Signing Season, featuring production from Trav, DJ Noodles, Lynx, AYB, DJ Wonder, AG, Pointblank Pro and Soundz.
David RUSH knows that there is so much more to come for him, and "Shooting Star" is just the beginning.
"I want people to think of me as a true artist and a person who really breathes and loves this," he explains. "The rush for me is the rush of the game; the rush when I record and do shows; the rush of wanting to get on and help my family, myself and the people around me who have rolled with me through this whole experience. It's the rush that I'm in to get everything going, because of the health issue that I have that lessens my time here on earth. To make sure I was on my grind harder than everybody else, to get where I'm at quicker than everybody else. When people think of David RUSH, I want them to think of somebody who took it there because he had to."
