Demarious Cole – “All In” ft. DJ Luke Nasty

Published

Today Demarious Cole releases his new single “All In,” Ft. DJ Luke Nasty. The song is a love song about trying to convince a woman that he’s 100% invested in trying to be with her.

Bred in the heart of the South where Friday night football and Saturday night college parties were a regularity, Demarious Cole was raised singing in the church his whole life. Similar to other great singers like Whitney Houston, Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye and John Legend, the church and gospel music helped develop Demarious Cole’s standout voice over the years.

“I’ve been singing in the church my whole life but I didn’t start taking R&B music seriously till I was about 18 when I started recording. My uncle in Huntsville had a little recording booth set up at his house at the time, so I went through and recorded my first R&B track. That night I played it for a few girls and after seeing their reactions, it was a wrap,” Demarious Cole said in a statement to the press.

Produced by Atlanta based producer Dominic Gordon, “All In” was co-written by Brandon Hesson. For the music video Demarious Cole called on Berlin the Photo God to produce and shoot the video. Berlin’s vision to shoot the video in black and white brings out a different type of aesthetic, bringing to life the timeless feel we have come to love from out R&B artists.

“All In” can be found on Demarious Cole’s album WildHeart which is set for release on August 29th. While he had plans for touring and special guest appearances at meet and greets throughout Atlanta and adjacent Southern states.

“Right now with everything going on in the world with social injustice still playing a major role in our society along with the Covid it’s just hard to tell when the world will start returning back to normal,” Demarious Cole said in regards to touring. “But just know that as soon as they approve a schedule on dates, we’ll def be out on the road. To everyone who’s been supporting me this far, I appreciate y’all. To everyone else just now seeing this, or hearing about me, get ya headphones ready cause we finna go crazy for a while!!”

What city are you from/ Where are you based now?
I was born in Bronx, NY and moved when I was five to Queens, NY. I always lived in NY but I have visited and performed in Atlanta, South Carolina, North Carolina, New Jersey, Virginia, and a few other states.
What is your artist name? What is your real name? How did you get your artist name?
My artist name is Aaron Reflex. My real name is Mustafah Aaron Steele. I came up with Aaron Reflex by mixing my middle name with Reflex. I also wanted something that a million other people didn’t have. When I googled it no one came up so I claimed it. Now I come up on Google and it’s a blessing to see the growth over time. Reflex honestly use to be part of my Xbox gamertag so I put it together. At what point in your life did you decide to pursue a career in music?  Music has always been something I wanted to do. It doesn’t matter if it was singing, playing instruments, or trying to teach myself from YouTube. I always had fun doing it and enjoyed seeing myself level up. I taught myself how to sing. I have always known music is something I would like to do because it’s fun to create. I like being in control of what I’m doing and have fun doing it. Who wouldn’t want to do what they love? Where I come from, a lot of people are not successful. Music started out as a recreational activity that I took very seriously but is constantly turning into something bigger. I would always work on music and my sound after school or work. All of college I made music and constantly released to SoundCloud and did singing covers and remixes consistently to different songs.
Has your upbringing played a role in shaping who you are and defining your sound today? If so, how?
Music has been part of my life since I was young. I always liked singing and was dared by my friend in third grade to raise my hand and audition for a solo in chorus class. He bet me $5 and I was thinking this is an easy $5 at the time. I raised my hand and actually sounded okay. Fast forward, I sung every year after that in elementary school and did many solos in chorus class. In middle school I learned to play guitar and piano thanks to my music teacher and many YouTube videos. I performed for the graduation playing guitar every year in middle school. In high school I was still singing but not performing as much as when I was younger.  I was performing for friends. I got better at rapping because I use to sing and my friend rapped — they said I just liked singing to the girls so I worked on my rapping a lil bit more and got better. Now I can freestyle really good and can even have people throw in words. As I’m rapping and incorporate them well into the freestyle.
