For those in the know, Aima the Dreamer has been rockin' crowds for years as
a vocalist and MC with groups such as J-Boogie's Dubtronic Science, The
Mamaz, Goddess Alchemy Project and Jazz Mafia's Brass, Bows and Beats
Hip-Hop Symphony. All of this in addition to her own solo project has
given her a variety of outlets with which to harness her energy as not only
a talented MC and vocalist, but also as a strong, feminine woman who easily
holds her own amongst a male-dominated industry.
As a freestyle rapper, poet, singer and versatile MC, Aima the Dreamer
brings her array of talents and influences to the masses by way of her
mixtape, available August 3rd, 2010. In addition to the mighty J-Boogie,
the mixtape features a who's who of underground and independent artists
including Lyrics Born, Bassnectar, Crown City Rockers, DJ Vadim, Bunny Mack,
Sola Rosa, Brass Mafia and many others.
The mixtape, simply titled, 'AIMA THE DREAMER MIXTAPE featuring J-BOOGIE'
takes the listener on a musical roller coaster with vibes ranging from
Hip-Hop and Rap to Funky Soul and Electronica-infused R & B.
This reflects not only Aima the Dreamer's versatility as an artist,
but also as an
individual. "I would like to think that I can be sexy, intelligent,
cultured, and sassy
without compromising any of those aspects," she says.
Spending her childhood moving across the United States from the Mid West
of Detroit and Chicago towards the West Coast via Salt Lake City and Los
Angeles, Aima finally found solid roots in Hawaii at the age of 9, where she
lived for the next 10 years until planting herself firmly into the Bay Area,
where she has resided ever since.
A troubled childhood led her to write poetry as a way of coping with the
stresses of life. This skill would serve her well as she began going to
open mics at the age of 16 as a spoken word artist and later finding her
calling as an emcee in the Bay Area by way of meeting her other half of The
Mamaz, Persia. "She really took me under her wing and transitioned me from
spoken word to emcee".
Nearly 10 years later Aima has taken her lifetime of experiences and lessons
learned and brought them together in a perfectly blended mix of music
that reflects a woman who is independent, sexy, strong, spiritual and intelligent.
Coupled with her exquisite rhymes and flows, Aima the Dreamer's mixtape gives the
music world a taste of an artist who knows what she wants. With plans for a
full-length album in the works, there's no doubt she will get it.
Inspired by her family and friends, Aima cites the Bay Area as one of
the biggest influences in her music; "I want to make music for all ages and
especially for the young girls and women out there. I am inspired by all the great music that comes out of the Bay Area on a daily. It is truly a blessing to be
surrounded by such open mindedness, revolutionary ideas, and beautifully talented people."
