Rich Christians is a song that illustrates the importance of spiritual wealth in a world that worships material possession.

Good City Music is home to some of the brightest up-and-coming talents in the Christian music industry.

Among the impressive roster of artists is Ohio’s own DJ and producer, JIMMY ROCK.

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic impacting an already difficult-to-navigate music scene, JIMMY ROCK has seen his trajectory increase sharply over the last two years.

In 2020, ROCK’s Ep ‘World of Drops’ debuted at number 112 on the iTunes Dance charts. Since then he has been busy building his catalog with a string of singles, bootleg remixes, and a follow-up EP, all while garnering highlights from media outlets such as New Release Today, Nashville Unsigned, Where’s The Vibe, and Atlanta-based Trackstarz. ROCK was also chosen by TunedUp as one of 2021’s “Artists to Watch”.

This April, JIMMY ROCK is releasing his new EP Word of Vibes: Remixes which features re-imagined versions of songs from both ‘World of Drops’ and 2021’s ‘Summer Vibes’ EP.

 

The lead single, Vibes [Remix], featuring Marty of Social Club Misfits and Light Ends Darkness, hits digital music retailers on February 25, 2022. The record beautifully blends EDM elements with Pop and a touch of Hip-Hop in perfect preparation for the upcoming project.

World of Vibes: Remixes will release on April 15, 2022, and features collaborations with Fern (Social Club Misfits), Steven Malcolm, Joe Maz (Pitbull, Ty Dolla $ign), Pettidee, KJ-52, Reyer, Sean McGee, and ShaVazz The Weirdo, as well as the aforementioned Marty and Light Ends Darkness. The project is executively produced by JIMMY ROCK with mixing and mastering from acclaimed production team The Brewz (Thomas Iannucci).

Continuing to build off of his 2021 release of the album In the Ruins of Dreamland, Tentmaker Music’s A.K.A. Fisher drops his newest single.

Shooting Gallery features Christian Hip Hop legend KJ-52 along with Tentmaker labelmate Old Man Xero.

This track, and video, are so hot the very demons of hell are sweating bullets!

The song speaks directly to the enemy of the Church. It challenges his grip on humanity by reminding him of his true place…the bottom. It is a reminder to the people of God that they have the power and authority to vanquish the whiles of the devil. Stay vigilant through adversity by prayer, supplication, and faith in Christ.

“I like to talk trash,” says Fisher in reference to his gun-play style lyrics in the song. “Instead of cowering in fear and misery, why not remind the enemy of what happens to him in the end?”

In the Ruins of Dreamland was released on January 2, 2021. Check it out now via Tentmaker’s Bandcamp page here.
