Are You Ready For ‘Booty Music,’ R&B Quartet Git Fresh Inks Deal With Def Jam

Fresh off a new deal with Jermaine Dupri’s So So Def and Def Jam, R&B group Git Fresh is ready to take the R&B game by storm with their first single “Booty Music.” Previously signed to Jive under the name DeepSide, the Florida based quartet changed their name to Git Fresh upon signing with Def Jam who had somewhat of a bidding war with other interested labels. “Though there were other labels were interested in us, we signed to Def Jam because we thought they were more artist driven.” – According to group members their new name Git Fresh represents a new beginning. Immediately after meeting with Def Jam President LA Reid, Git Fresh hit the studio to record what has become their lead single entitled “Booty Music,” a hypnotic dance track that is bound to be one of this summer’s hottest songs. “We recorded that song down in Atlanta, and somehow it leaked to a few stations,” says Rudy who is also the groups primary producer. Along with Sly, Brent (Penny) and Mike (Mike Easy), the group has been together for ten years. “Though I do most of the production, all group members contribute to the lyrics and vocal arrangements. We are own worst critics, so we have no problems trashing a song if it isn’t up to par.” Originally formed when all the boys were still teenagers singing at local talent shows and performing at parties around the state, Git Fresh is far from another prefab boy band. “With the exception of Sly, we all went to the Dillard Performing Arts High School, and have been working together for years,” explains Mike. “As a unit, we love working together.” Citing various artists from El DeBarge to Jodeci and Elton John to The Temptations as influences, Git Fresh works from a harmonic paint palate of many colors to create their impressionistic soul. So, while the group can wild out on party jams “Booty Music” and “Naked,” the can also slow down the pace on joints like “Cheaters” and “Blow Me A Kiss.” Smiling, Penny says, “As a group, we’re just so excited about where our music is going. Though we make slamming club records, we also like making ballads that give us the opportunity to show heartfelt emotions.” “Our sound represents all that is culturally diverse in music.”
