After over a year of working this project aptly titled 'GRAND,' Anderson, IN born and raised producer Maja 7th and Columbus, OH's own Dominique Larue as a newly formed duo, have put together an 8 track extended play of cohesive rhymes and production. Maja 7th is the epitome of musicality with his background in music theory, aswell as being highly skilled on piano, french horn and trumpet. This one producer, one emcee project brings you some of Dominique Larue's most personal lyrics to date with songs like'Freedom' and 'Feels Good,' the album also showcases her fun side and highlights her underrated storytelling ability. 'GRAND' has minimal collaborations with only Columbus based artist features, in Valure, Micah Robinson and Kim Joyce, which first and foremost allows Dominique Larue to convey her own brand of raw emotion on each song alot more freely than some of her previous offerings, over this well crafted, distinctive Maja 7th soundscape. The #GRAND album release party will be held on March 15th in Indianapolis, Indiana at Sabbitcal, presented by BringingDownTheBand.com, there will also be a Columbus, Ohio release party this April 4th at Double Happiness. https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/grand/id835930272
With #GRAND on the horizon, Maja7th and Dominique Larue decided to release #SOON as a teaser back in April and after garnering great reviews, shooting a video for the song was necessary. Larue then linked with director Mario Hensley who was able to bring #SOON to life with its colors and Larue's ability to command the viewers attention. Stay tuned for more updates concerning #GRAND in the near future.
Eight months after organically assembling diem., D/Will & Dominique Larue felt like the less pressure, the better. After knowing each other for five years and developing a musical chemistry with Larue being in Ohio and D/Will being in Missouri, following up their 2010 EP, carpe. (presented by RockTheDub.com) could only come at ease. diem. certainly has a relaxed undertone with Ms. Larue showing her emotional struggles on songs like I'm Good and telling vivid stories on The Boulevard. They were also able to capture a lighthearted Larue on Make Love/Make War and her a little cocky on But I Will. Regardless, the goal is satisfy the listener with a multitude of ideas on 7 tracks with the privilege of not skipping a track.

The first leak of their upcoming project, diem., is Larue painting picture over D/Will's production of dealing with the ills of society. Taken from a sample that we're all familiar with but yet flipped in a way where Larue rides the beat perfectly while being clear with the point she is trying to make, we never let the dollar circulate.
Part two of their carpe. diem. series, set to be released sometime in April, is almost opposite of it's predecessor with a more relaxed under-tone. Although they are in different states, D/Will in Missouri and Larue in Ohio, the duo has been able to obtain a chemistry that shows throughout their history together. Please stay tuned because there is more to come.

With diem. on the brink of being released, Larue & D/Will decided to link up with Boston emcees M-Dot and Boycott Blues for the remix of their lead single, Circulate. Going along the same lines as the original, all three emcees capture the idea of succombing to the pressures of sheer survival. Though Circulate Remix is the second time Larue and M-Dot have linked up, it is the first for her and Boycott. And with all three on the same track, it can only mean that they will be linking up again in the near future.

With the help of director Chuck You, D/Will & Larue were able to capture the idea behind, Circulate, with images of life in the lower income areas in Columbus, Ohio. They also capture the journey of a young boy trying to provide for his family while risking his life. Until the release of the full project in July, please enjoy their first video from diem.
