The New Talk of HAITI's music scene! PSMG! A label launched in early 2014 by well known Haitian-Producer Serge "Power Surge" Turnier.
Serge "Power Surge" Turnier,known for producing songs like "Bouje" of Admiral T & JPerry, "Toi et Moi" of the group T-Vice, "Se Paw Mwen Ye" featuring Alan Cave, "Im Loving My Life" of Michael Benjamin, and executive producing JPerry's first album with the hit song "Dekole", amongst other multiple songs, has launched his own label "Power Surge Music Group" with members:
Scottish DJ, singer, songwriter and record producer Calvin Harris (We Found Love- Rihanna) shows off the first human synthesizer, aka "The Humanthesizer", using technology in his favor to create interactivity with music creation. This could be used for an amazing live show in my opinion.
Everyone is talking about the new YouTube video which has gone viral in our community. "Sh*T Zuzu Girls Say" with a bit more than 51,000 views in 4 days. Someone (not Mario by the way) even created a twitter account! and I even know some producers working on a music remix lol

Dr. Dre, Snoop Using Star Wars Technology to Reanimate Tupac, Nate Dogg for Coachella
Reports broke yesterday morning that Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg are bringing a very special guest on stage with them at this weekend's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival: The late G-funk legend Nate Dogg.
Rumor has it Dre and Snoop will be employing holographic technology to bring their deceased collaborator back from the dead.
Late last night, California-based radio station KROQ announced on its site that Nate Dogg wouldn't be the only expired Death Row alum set to apparate onto the Coachella stage: Tupac Shakur, who was gunned down in 1996, will also be ressurected via hologram.
Musion, the company behind the futuristic gimmick, helped bring a Mariah Carey Christmas concert to five different European cities at once last year as part of Deutsche Telekom‘s "life is for sharing" campaign
A handful of non-dead guests are also rumored to be joining Dre and Snoop during their performance. Among these are Eminem, Wiz Khalifa, and Nate Dogg's partner in regulation, Warren G.
YouTube is streaming Coachella concerts live for the second year in a row. You can learn more about that here.
Kendrick Lamar Duckworth (born June 17, 1987), is an American rapper and songwriter from Compton, California. He first gained major attention after the release of his 2010 mixtape Overly Dedicated. In 2011, his album Section.80, released exclusively through iTunes, instantly ranked as one of the top digital hip hop releases of the year. Lamar has amassed a large internet following, is a member of hip hop collective Black Hippy, along with Jay Rock, Schoolboy Q and Ab-Soul, and has worked with Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Wiz Khalifa, Game, Drake, Busta Rhymes and Tech N9ne among other popular artist.
On February 15, 2012 a song titled "Cartoons & Cereal" featuring Gunplay was leaked. Lamar revealed later that the track was for his upcoming album and he was planning to shoot a video for it.
In March 2012, MTV announced that Top Dawg Entertainment, the independent record label Lamar is signed to, have closed a joint venture deal with Interscope Records and Aftermath Entertainment, marking the end of his career as an independent artist.
Under the new deal, Kendrick Lamar’s projects, including his upcoming debut studio album Good Kid in a Mad City will be jointly released via Top Dawg, Aftermath and Interscope, while releases from the rest of Black Hippy will be distributed via Top Dawg and Interscope.
Lamar premiered "The Recipe", his debut single and the lead single from Good Kid in a Mad City, at Power 106 on April 2, 2012. The track was released for digital download the following day. The song was produced by Scoop DeVille and features Dr. Dre.
