Milton “Cayne Marko” Dewar – Renaissance Manhattan
In the words of the legendary Slick Rick, “There is no competition.” Milton “Cayne Marko” Dewar is an award winning Writer, Director, Producer, and Author, who has worked with some of the biggest recording artists and media organizations in the entertainment arena, from Nas, to Wu-Tang, to A & E Television, to CBS, and more. As a seasoned Music Producer, and former member of the Grammy nominated music production team, The Arkatechz, (formerly known as The Infinite Arkatechz), the quadruply skilled talent and Filmmaker, Milton Dewar, best known for his scripted independent feature film mockumentary, “Hi Hater: The Documentary,” returns to his music roots, with his debut cross-genre solo instrumental beat album, Renaissance Manhattan: the quintessential intersection of Hip-Hop, Pop, R&B, Soundtrack, and Soul music.
The eight track banger whets the auditory appetite for more, as it shuttles the listener through several different genres of original music production without missing a beat, (pun intended). Wow!
From the Hip-Hop kissed eastern music inspired introspection of “Masterful,” to the sensual, string quartet laden, Neo-Soul stirring groove of “Moscato,” to the electrifyingly trippy boom-bap Pop sound of “Acid Cabana,” Renaissance Manhattan is a tantalizing tapestry of distinctive melodies, pulsating percussion, and complex compositions, both with and without samples, that scream for the vocals of your favorite artists.
This acoustic ride of an album, thrills, with its delivery of the foreboding rap anthem-ready instrumental, “Ominous,” and absolutely whisks the listener away with the epic movie-like soundscape of “New Empire,” an original, sample-free orchestral masterpiece of a track, amongst more, that may very well find itself and Milton Dewar, readily sampled by others.
Look for more incredible offerings and collaborations from the quadruple talent threat, Milton Dewar, in music, film, and television, in the near future. With his second feature film in development, and a groundbreaking television series on the way, the Writer, Director, Producer, and Author, shows no signs of slowing down. Renaissance Manhattan is available for listening now, on all major music digital streaming platforms.Tweet
