Alucard is unique from all other emcees and that’s a good thing these days. In an era where artists lack imagination, creativity, and edge, Alucard rises above in all aspects. Also known as Alu, the Brooklyn, NY native is an original founding member of Creative Juices Music. He designed the first logo, first few album covers, promotional stickers, and visual direction for the brand. What started as casual work for mixtapes later spawned into an official music label. “IDE and I would record track after track together. That was the beginning of Creative Juices Music”. Alu has made countless guest features on the microphone, including appearances with Killah Priest, ILL BILL, Nems, U.G. (Cella Dwellas), Steele (Smif-N-Wessun), and more. Alu released his own debut album, Watch Them Fall, and designed the album layout as well. He has consistently and effortlessly played the role of both emcee and graphic designer. Some of his work expands to brands like Methods NYC and Sun Cycle NYC, as well as album cover designs for Roc C, cRITICAL, L.I.F.E. Long, IMAKEMADBEATS, and more. Alucard is currently recording a new album called Alusions, as well as comic books and animated music videos. He states “My vision is to bring more art and creativity to Creative Juices Music; not only for Hip Hop heads, but for creative individuals in any genre“.
Watch Them Fall was pre-released in 2008 as a limited edition mixtape. It was accepted as a top underground indi record for the year, and was soon sold out everywhere. As opposed to re-press the mixtape, Creative Juices Music has decided to re-release it as an official LP. The Watch Them Fall re-press has been re-mastered and includes 5 brand new tracks; With new original art done by Alucard himself. Watch Them Fall is a collection of some of Alucards best material over the last 10 years.
