Deaux (Justin Kleindienst, born in '94') is a multifaceted artist and producer residing in Atlanta, GA. Raised collectively by his mother and grandparents in the subdivision Powder Springs, Deaux spent a great majority of his childhood skateboarding, playing music with various bands, and mobbing throughout his neighborhood. The loss of a close friend struck Deaux deeply and served as a wake up call.
Finding comfort in music, Deaux directed his energies towards his artistic talents as a way of expressing himself, learning how to play guitar, violin, cello, drums, and piano. Influenced by a wide range of artists from Modest Mouse to Mac Miller gave Deaux a strong appreciation for the many approaches to making great music. Having his uncle (also a musician) hand down to him an electric guitar previously own by Phish guitarist was a great honor that Deaux took to heart. From that moment he knew exactly what he wanted to do with his life and hit the ground running.
Working with local Atlanta labels Freakstep Records, and The Block Society, Deaux found coverage as a producer with releases on influential blogs Doandroidsdance? and Trap And Bass. Early success gave way to production placements and feature verses on songs with artists A-Bomb, Zip Lock Holmes, and Trinidad Jame$. While building his production credits, Deaux also made a name for himself as a legitimate feature performer doing sets at A3C Hip Hop Festival, Moonshine Music Festival, 404 Day, and 808 Fest. His professional relationship with producer/engineer Wes Green (formally of Zac Brown's Southern Ground Artists) eventually led to him working with Atlanta artist development company MOREDOPE, LLC. Deaux has released singles “Cook” and “Gold”, which have garnered nearly 100,000 spins on Pandora Radio, and is currently working on his upcoming debut project that's being described as Indie Rap/Pop.
Frank Mayson (born Rodney Francois Maison) is a Haitian-American rapper currently residing in Atlanta, GA. From his early youth in Stamford, CT to his young adulthood in Atlanta (Gwinnett County to be exact) Frank recalls always having a deep interest in all forms of music and a natural love of being on stage and performing. His ability to pull off trap life and charm keeps his audiences entertained and creates a genuine, loyal fan base.
Frank's debut single "Touchdown" (prod. by Drill Cosby) launched in late 2015 and quickly found prominent mixtape placement (HOT107.9 Durtty Boyz 'Battlegrounds Mixtape', Mixtape Monopoly's 'Catch The Wave', DJ Tyrek.s 'Trapping Thru America', among others). Frank is currently working closely with producer/engineer Wes Green (formally of Zac Brown's Southern Ground Artists) and Atlanta-based artist management group MOREDOPEMUSIC in preparation for the release of his debut full-length project, "Trap Standard".
The perfect cross-roads between the classic soul of Atlanta and today's vibrant trap scene. Gregory Lamont blends an edginess that keeps and ear to today's global trends with a mature sound that is warm as bourbon straight-up.
Wes Green is the creative glue for some of Atlanta’s most loved indie artists. He signed his first deal as a teenager and moved to LA. to work with acts such as Travis Barker, and even living in the same house as Khloe Kardashian. After a stint in California, Wes ventured to Atlanta with lifetime buddy A-Bomb and starting working on projects with The Wheeler Boys which landed them, and him a deal with Zac Brown’s Southern Ground Artists label. While with Southern Ground Artists, Wes worked on a long list of projects including production and engineering credits on projects for Zac Brown, Sonia Leigh, Mighty High Coup, and The Law Band.
