Fuse fearsome dedication with five diversely talented musicians, a mind-boggling work-ethic and a positive mission, and you’re facing an unstoppable force. Welcome to Detroit Mutant Radio, an Atlanta via Detroit/LA rock-fusion hybrid, whose tasty tunes, stylistic diversity and frenetic live show are paying dividends with a hard-to ignore street buzz!
Originally formed as a backing band for a Detroit rap duo featuring now front man Cleaven R. Creech, Detroit Mutant Radio crystallized into its current format after relocating to Los Angeles in mid-2004. Now residing in Atlanta, they are poised to breakout nationally. Having graced stages up and down California’s Sunset Strip: Whiskey A Go-Go to the LA House of Blues, as well as the ATL’s Hard Rock Cafe and many more venues. The vanguard outfit of rock fusion visionaries...have crafted an intense stage performance that receives a positive reception everywhere they play.
This acclaim is reason for ‘DMR’ being featured as the backing band in major recording artists, Currency and Wale (What it Look Like) music video. The video which was shot by director G. Visuals ( Wacka Flaka feat. Rick Ross and P. Diddy, Young Jeezy, Tip, Goodie Mob, and Dallas Austin) has been on MTV, MTV2, and numerous other major outlets. Most notably, ‘DMR’ was voted the # 1 breakout band of Atlanta ‘2012 by the fans and also were winners of RAWards Musicians of the year.
The bands effort in the studio has garnered many industry professional interests. This includes ‘DMR’s debut album, Cash N Burn. A truly multi-faceted record produced by LA producer/engineer Matt Forger (Michael Jackson) and 11 time Grammy Award winner engineer/mixer Rafa Sardina. ‘DMR’s current ep, (MUTANITE: Rise of the MUTANTS!) also shines with a soundscape of pure stylistic diversity. Produced by platinum producers Saint Denson and L. Stro Maxwell (Rick Ross, Pink, Styles P, and 112) and co-produced by DMR. The band continues to fuse uplifting, socially-concious lyrics with raucous rock dynamics, all kept captivating with cultured twin guitar interplay, bustling turntables, and a muscular, in-the-pocket rhythm section.
However eclectic Detroit Mutant Radio’s sound gets running the gamut from Faith No More groove-metal to Run DMC hip hop - the heart of their songs remains constant: It always flows around the structure of the words and what the message is, Creech stresses. We’re about awareness...Live; ‘DMR’ is all about energy, as Creech and his cohorts fully realize their unique inner stars, true born performers who simultaneously evoke the impact of Queen, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Linkin Park to Rage Against the Machine.
With an arresting debut album on the streets, new project just released, and a snowballing live rep, Detroit Mutant Radio is set to reap the rewards of their skills and sacrifice. “I guarantee that if you come at us with an open mind you’ll be blown away knowing that we put 110% out there, and that it’s truly genuine GHETTO RoCK!” Creech promises.

Lord Q here, Founder of LA PUNK NOIR andLAPUNKNOIR.com. In an effort to promote Black and Brown bands and artists that don’t fit within the narrow perceptions of mainstream radio, I have started an online show,LPN RADIO. I am writing to ask that your band submit songs and links to your site to be featured on the show.
As you may be aware, LPN is the hub of West Coast Alternative Urban music, news and style. For bands and artists that Black radio has no room for and mainstream radio is afraid of, the LPN platform is available to you. LPN RADIO features alternative urban bands in the genres of rock, punk, metal and alternative hip-hop. I am also interested in introducing your band, via the LPN interview series,Q:15, a daily 15 minute segment, where two songs of featured guests are played, with an interview in between.
If your band is interested in these opportunities, follow the submission guidelines:
