Premiere: Hip-Hop Duo K.O.A Drops Track, ‘Classic’ Today!

Consisting brothers Austin & Jagger Spacy, K.O.A. has dished up a rather mesmerising number entitled ‘Classic’, out now for your inspection on all good download and streaming sites. Wrapped in a seamlessly soothing hip-hop/bedroom pop fusion, the duo’s latest offering is inspired by their friends who parted waves from them once they made it or ditched them over some girl.

Speaking of how the single’s release came to fruition, K.O.A says: “We never intended to release it but we played this for fun on one of our weekly lives and everyone was telling us to put it out.”

Between them, these guys from Arizona holds a very impressive CV. Austin, a multi-faceted talent, started out as a professional dancer and actor, before teaching himself to produce music whilst dancing on the 1989 World Tour with Taylor Swift. Jagger is an accomplished musician, songwriter and rapper previously signed to MMG (Timbaland’s mgmt company). While their initial releases lived in the alt/pop world, they are now leaning more into an alternative rap sound that feels honest and completely genuine.

Check out their new venture into alternative hip-hop world below…

Song of the Day: Half of Me (Acoustic Version) – Yasmeen

The acoustic version of ‘Half of Me’ is a brutally honest portrayal of how YASMEEN felt when she met her ex’s girlfriend for the first time – which happened one night in the studio.

While working on another song, she felt the need to do something more stripped back musically. Something more real and honest. She wanted to let out the raw emotions, of letting her ex go, and how meeting his new girlfriend forced those feelings onto paper. Her manager, heard the song, and said it was her best vocal performance. Have a listen…

Now here’s something very soothing after a rowdy weekend…have a listen to Never Letting Go by brand new artist GREG FREEMAN.

Hailing from Phoenix, Arizona the melodic rocker is looking to release his three track EP in November, produced and written by the man himself. With that real classic raspy/bluesy vocals and the lone acoustic guitar, this Sterling Studio Productions recruit has definitely found the winning recipe.
