If it bears the anchor , it ’ s a certified banger . followed by the release of his first EP , Waves On Da Top , featuring the single , “ Waves On Da Top ” ( also featured on Supathowed Playa ). In 2014 , he released the single “ She ’ s The One ,” along with the EP , Stilll Coastin . After the release of three rap singles and two EP ’ s , Colacoast began focusing its business on the production and development of new independent artists , breaking into other markets and genres . Approaching 2017 , the Colacoast Brand is emerging in new regions while acquiring Colombia ’ s Paul C , extending Colacoast ’ s territory south of the equator . Paulo Cesar Carvajal Galvez aka Paul C , is an urban music artist , singer and songwriter from Pereira Colombia in South America . His music , laced with vibes of Hip-Hop and Reggaeton , is a hardcore depiction of the struggle , the grind , and the good , bad , and ugly of the mean streets of Colombia . His 2013 release , Contrabando Pa La Calle ( Smuggling For The Street ), has won music awards in different categories including the Billboard Award for most requested artist in independent music or underground hip hop ( 2015 ). Under the executive production of Da Gumbo Kooker , His new single , “ Perrenque & Sabrosura ,” is a theme that honours Colombia ’ s people and traditions . In a recent interview with the Colombian news publication , El Diario , Paul C announces Colacoast as his new label . He also reveals that his new songs feature luxury collaborations with artists such as Wyclef Jean , Peppaboy Trill McCoy , and others .
While the music industry is constantly changing , it is imperative to evolve with it . In the past , it may have been more difficult for artists to get their music out to the people , but in today ’ s super digital age , there ' s no excuses . “ We don ' t want to miss any opportunities !” says Pepp . “ That ’ s why we aggressively network to create opportunities , and to find unique artists and styles of music from under the underground . We aim to provide entertainment for everyone , delivering quality you can trust . All we need is distribution !” Built on in-person PR , with a promotion and marketing team second to none , Colacoast Entertainment is focused on building the music , culture , and capitalising through corporate branding . “ We ’ d love to get into more film and television projects ,” says Pepp . “ Our brand is clean , unique , and pure .”
In sweltering heat , there is nothing more refreshing than the cool “ Sea Breeze ” and the sound of “ Waves On Da Top ” crashing against the beautiful Florida coast . Admire the sight , listen , and take a deep breath of fresh air , because Colacoast Entertainment is about to blow , literally .
