CEG Presents & Capitol Agent Media CMJ Showcase King Mez, Dee Goodz, Kwame Darko w/ The Post, & NUEX

Nuex (7:05-7:35PM)

Camille, a budding singer songwriter from DC, and Teddy, a well-traveled and seasoned musician, met serendipitously one day at a local eatery where they ended up chatting for hours about their musical pasts, present and future over lunch. Weekly phone conversations and long threads of text messaging eventually culminated into the two of them drinking mint juleps in Camille's backyard, romancing over shared musical influences and imagining futures of sublime success. Out of the clouds and out of the blue, it was there that something was born between the two. Something NUEX.



The Post (7:40-8:10PM)

The Post was born in a dark basement on Rivington Street... and the rest is historical fiction. They are the first hyperanalytical, ultrarevisionist rock band of the modern era. One might even call them Postmodern. Made of technology and gumption, The Post explores diverse topics such as frogs, quantitative easing, and Memphis, all within the framework of progressive-psychedelic-folk-blues-pop rock. #ThePostIsNice #ThePostIsFuture #ThePostIsABand #PostMoBills


Kwame Darko (8:15-8:45PM)

Born and raised in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., New York based Hip Hop/Pop recording artist and songwriter Kwame Darko commands his own lane. Blending catchy lyrics with anthem-like production Kwame‘s sound and stage presence has turned heads and opened ears. 
Since moving to New York to further his career, Kwame has been a featured artist at the 2013 CMJ Music Festival and performed at some of the counties most renowned music venues. Having gone on tour and appeared with artists like Big Sean, Wale, and Sean Paul to name a few, Kwame has developed into a seasoned vet looking to continue the momentum into 2015. With his hit single “Bet They See Me Now” featured at professional sporting stadiums across the country, be on the lookout for Kwame in a city near you. 
Beyond the stage and studio Kwame’s success as an athlete led him to the University of Maryland, where as a member of the school’s nationally-acclaimed soccer team he stepped away from a promising professional soccer career to pick up the mic.  Kwame’s eye for talent, songwriting, producing, business savvy, and overall marketability furthers his value as a rising star. 


Dee Goodz (8:50-9:20PM)

Tennessee spawned rapper/ producer Dee Goodz combines the southern cool with an ever-evolving thirst to bring the listener something fresh. When Dee Goodz is not in the studio he can be found trotting the globe keeping up with the street-wear fashion world he so avidly values and contributes to. An endless stream of next level projects and visuals have garnered Dee Goodz praise from the biggest names in the fashion and Hip Hop industries...


King Mez (9:25-10:05PM)

Ambitiously battling to emerge as a respected lyricist and emcee from North Carolina, King Mez has managed to differentiate himself with a righteous delivery unsullied with superficial content too familiar these days in popular music. Instead, the young emcee brings to the table a flow far more personal, executed with a demeanor that demonstrates he deserves every ounce of respect he’s ever received. 
From collaborating with esteemed producers J.Cole, Ski Beatz, Omen, Soundtrakk, to his recent features with XXL, MTV, Spin Magazine, Life + Times and the New York Times, Mez is building a network of talent around him while honing his skills and staying true to his unique sound. To add to his network, he collaborated with clothing brands Stussy, 10Deep and Raleigh Denim. In addition to perfecting his lyrical skillset and occasionally stylin’, Mez’s music video can be seen in heavy rotation in Footlockers and Foot Actions across the United States. 
With three incredibly solid mixtape releases under his belt (The Paraplegics 2010, The King’s Khrysis 2011, My Everlasting Zeal 2012), Mez is steadily marching the path paved by his NC forefathers, with no signs of stopping where the sidewalk ends.
