Song of the Day: Made For Me – David Versis

Slick spitter DAVID VERSIS features on today’s hotspot with smooth banger, ‘Made For Me.’

This new solo must listen mixes downtempo trap percussion with an upbeat classic hip-hop swing to match the vibes in the verse and chorus.

David’s work as a producer has seen him working alongside artists such as Wiz Khalifa, Yo Gotti, T.I. among others and landed him a Grammy nomination for Wiz Khalifa’s ‘Blacc Hollywood’.

So you’re not messing with some hungry one-hit wonder…it’ll be a crying shame if you pass this one up.

Song of the Day: Jaws of Love

‘Jaws Of Love’ is the latest single by Local Natives’ Kelcey Ayer solo project, JAWS OF LOVE.

The delicately powerful piece is the first release from his upcoming album, ‘Tasha Sits Close to the Piano’, set for release via House Arrest digitally on September 22nd, with its gatefold coloured vinyl release available in the UK on 3rd November.

The first solo project  sees Ayer – the songwriter/vocalist/pianist of the critically acclaimed L.A. band (Local Natives) – hone in on his master craft: the emotive piano ballad as highlighted on the five-piece’s well-received second album, ‘Hummingbird’.

The talented singer-songwriter will play his debut solo headline show on 21st September at The Masonic Lodge, Hollywood Forever Cemetery in L.A with plans to take his compelling live set to the UK and Europe in Autumn.

JAWS OF LOVE‘s upcoming album  is the first taste of Kelcey Ayer’s solo adventure…so go on, have a listen!

Album Review: Eight Days A Week – King Blitz

After a loooong spell away from the scene, KING BLITZ came back bolder with track, ‘That’s Real’, featured on NEW LEASE MUSIC back in January. Now the Indiana wordsmith is keeping the momentum at full speed with his ten-track album, ‘Eight Days A  Week’, released late last month.

A downtempo and menacing bass dominates and runs riot in the latest project, where this young emcee slams down his flow at varying speed. Somehow this smooth operator always comes out on top as his spats seamlessly weave throughout in every single track – well I guess that’s why he’s called KING BLITZ!

There’s some real gems in this set for those who are into alternative hip-hop; go and check it!
