George Stapel roots from a family of engineers and was born on 7th May 1987 in Rostock (Germany). He started his musical education at age 3 and started dance training at „Tanzhaus Düsseldorf“ after moving to Düsseldorf at age 4. By the age of 15 he made his way to being a professional dancer being proficient in Break-dance and Hip-Hop. Through these performances he got interested in creating mixes digitally and soon taught himself to play the keyboard to be able to create his own remixes and later compose his first own pieces. Later he started studying audio engineering at the SAE in Cologne Germany .
During his career he met lots of more or less professional artists and manager who recognized his talent and kept asking him to produce beats. However, he still hadn't reached his breakthrough. In 2009 he met the music manager and graphic designer Rafay Inam and together they formed „Symphonic Entertainment“, a company that specialized in professional production, graphics and marketing. In his role as chief producer he soon added two fellow composers (Florian Maier & Dragon n Beats) to the project to create a unit of highly professional musicians.
One year later, George and his long-time friend R-Sin (Teeage Beatz) composed the smash-hit „Shawty's on fire“ for a small American label. In 2011 he met the Dance/House-Combo Miami Inc. and together they produced the song „No Sleep“ that peaked in the Top 20 of the European Dance Charts. George's Radio and Club edits were featured on the „No Sleep“ album alongside works from renowned professionals like Sean Finn and CJ Stone. He's currently working with U-Jean, Carlprit, Jason Mcknight, Miami Inc., , Heidi Anne, Jason Cerda
Today, his reference list is filled with many international top artists and he's bound to entertain the public with his futuristic and orchestral sounds. Keep an eye on him as he's going to rock the charts with his catchy tunes that appeal to a large audience.
release on Radium Records:
Radium Records is back with a new chart stormer!
In September 2012 the time has come: With the launch of their new single “Hey – Yo”
the band Blaq Swag will “wow” their fans! Starting this autumn, for the next few
months several gigs are planned in the most “happening” clubs in Germany. While
born in the USA, both artists Jay O. Ay and Januliss P. spent most of their youth in
Germany and therefore want to release their new single here. At the same time, Blaq
Swag is working on their first studio album together with the “Radium Records” label.
Blaq Swag represents an unusual new style that the band describes as „Gentleman
Rapper Style“. Their individual “Gentlemen Rapper Style” together with extraordinary
creativity, great ideas and hard work is the recipe for success for this duo. No baggy
pants or profanity, but danceable melodies with good texts. Chic outfits and carefully
engineered optics are important to them.
House and HipHop are among the most popular music styles among young people. It
is exactly these two which are combined in an exciting way by Blaq Swag in their
single “Hey – Yo” – hit potential here is virtually guaranteed.
Jay O. Ay & Januliss P. has gained a lot of experience in the music scene: For
example they provided tour support for Snoop Dogg, Jeremih and other US-stars.
Moreover they have played in several musicals and TV-shows. At only 21 and 22
years of age they have already done more than 50 shows and gigs.
The music video directed by video clip icon Dirk Hilger, supported by the producer
team “The Audiokillerz”, shows the fascinating new style and brilliance of the rappers
„Really ingenious, these guys” – such charisma and talent on the stage made it easy
for us to to decide to manage Blaq Swag. They fascinate anyone who listens to
them!”, says Jerome Voland and Benjamin Korth from “Allure – Die Künstleragentur
(The Artists Managers)” in Germany.
