Premo.Dee – ‘Satellite.Blvd’ [EP]

By: Shamus Hill

Brockton, Massachusetts has played a sort of mitochondrial role within the Bay State’s music scene over the last year or two, with notable acts such as DTheFlyest and Van Buren Records spreading the City of Champions’ influence far beyond its borders. Attached with this surge in music coming out of the Brockton area has been an influx of truly profound artists that — together — have assisted in shining a light on the diverse landscape of music that exists within Massachusetts. Helping to validate this statement is Premo.Dee, who recently gifted his listeners with his first project — Satellite.Blvd.

Since releasing his first song more than two years ago, Premo.Dee has been making strides with respect to developing his sound. His recent string of releases prior to Satellite.Blvd were extremely promising, as each showcased a different side of Premo’s artistic capabiities. Satellite.Blvd is where he really ties everything together, with each of the EP’s five tracks being a fitting addition to his discography.

Featuring Van Buren’s Saint Lyor, Lord Felix, and Jiles, in addition to James Boy — Premo.Dee included the perfect cast of individuals to bring this body of work to fruition. Some notable standouts on this release are “Watch It” and “How We Get Here” as both of these songs do a superb job at detailing why Premo.Dee is as promising as an artist as he is. If you’re a fan of Satellite.Blvd, be sure to listen to Premo’s verse on Briefcvse’s new album as well.

Premo Dee – “The Tab” (Prod. by Emani)

By: Shamus Hill 

Brockton-native Premo Dee makes his debut onto the Graduation Music site today with a smooth new release titled “The Tab”. Sampling Kool and the Gang’s “Summer Madness”, Emani did a phenomenal job with production on this track, achieving a warm, reminiscent feel throughout. Largely centered around late night reflection and restlessness, Premo Dee beautifully showcases his polished raps with this release, adding another well put-together song to his discography and further proving his prowess as a Massachusetts standout.

That said, Premo’s ability to blend his life into his bars is nothing less than astounding. I genuinely possess a feeling of excitement when I see that he’s dropping something new, which can largely be derived from his nonchalant, warming presence over the accompanying instrumental. While his delivery at times seems almost effortless, bar after bar he hits you with a wonderfully well-written line that demands your attention. It’s this combination of easy-going feels and hard-hitting lyrics in Premo Dee’s music that will have listeners returning for more, and he only furthered my belief in this with the release of “The Tab”.

Premo.Dee – “VSOP Water”

By: Seamus Fay

Here on Graduation Music, it always feels the most rewarding to promote our newest finds that people may not be familiar with as of yet. Today, we introduce Brockton artist Premo.Dee to our pages with the release of his first single, “VSOP Water”. Swept into the warm weather with wavy sounds and well-placed, deeply-cut bass, this track will have you hooked in from the first second to the last with ease.

Upon first listen, what tied me into this song most was the way that Dee is able to take such illustrative sounds and still twist them in his own, unique way. Additionally, adding to the track in a complementary manner, Dee’s infectious flows and feel-what-you-hear approach to music clearly make for entertaining sounds, and with “VSOP Water” to lead the charge, you may just be hearing his name quite a bit in the near future. Considering that Premo.Dee’s potential is easily noticeable even in his first song, we had no option but to make sure that everyone gets prepared for Brockton’s latest talent.
