Vincent Barrea Shares Fiery Video For Single, ‘Chemical or Love’

Moscow-based vocalist, producer and rapper VINCENT BARREA has dropped some blazing visuals for his new single ‘Chemical or Love’, premiered on VENTS Magazine. The three-minute production is tipped to follow suit Barrea’s success with his previous outputs, ‘Zoom Zoom’, which has racked up over 800K Youtube views; ‘Save My Life’ and ‘I’m Not Afraid’ racked up well over 400K views.

Mixed and mastered by Grammy-nominated engineer Alex Evans (Skrillex, Rag N Bone Man, Basement Jaxx), ‘Chemical or Love’ is based on the uncertainties experienced during the beginning stages of a new relationship. The track opens with an upbeat piano intro and a cuban-style sound palette before Vincent’s vocals slide into the first suave stanza. Forward thinking beats blended with retro instrumentals and an urbane approach to songwriting, make ‘Chemical or Love’ catchy and compelling.

Speaking of the track, Barrea comments: “This song is a musical transformation of the experiences of a real person. A person who is so strongly in love that he cannot determine whether it is just chemistry occurring in his head, or a very persistent feeling from the bottom of his heart. These thoughts annoy and create doubt and anxiety, and don’t give the opportunity to move further in the relationship – thereby spiraling it to a dead end.”

Otish Mensah Unveil Video For Track, ‘Grand Finale Funeral Show’ & Releases Debut EP

Exploring the idea of rap as a form of intellectual art, radical hip-hop artist and storyteller OTISH MENSAH  releases his debut EP ‘Rap Poetics’ – a six track project challenging and breaking down the white-washed elitism of the art world.

Otis’ work reads like a stream of consciousness, documenting journeys of thought as he manoeuvres expertly throughout the project. Valuing art as a fundamental form of activism, Otis is opening up an important dialogue between himself and the ruling establishment, positioning emotional vulnerability at its core.

Lead single, ‘Grand Finale Funeral Show’ tackles the pressures of the art world – to continue to create, design and compose. Otis documents these journeys of thought with artful introspection, his experimental hip-hop rippling with themes of displacement and artistic vulnerability.

Recently making his debut book premiere with SAFE METAMORPHOSIS!!, a collection of poems and philosophical ideas exploring the voice of unspoken trauma, ‘Rap Poetics’ is a continuation of this earnest human expression, taking rap as an art-form in its own right – one that is raw and impassioned.

Describing the artist as “dynamic, skillful and radical”, former Lord Mayor and current MEP Magid Magid appointed Otis as the first hip-hop Poet Laureate of Sheffield in 2018. Having performed with the likes of Mahalia, Arrested Development, Killah Priest, Oddisee and Open Mike Eagle, as well as garnering support from The Guardian and EARMILK, Otis articulates societal injustices with innate precision and candidness.

SS Is Living His ‘Best Life’ In Brand New Video

Having written and produced with Burna Boy, Samini and Dappy, SS has been a creative musical genius amongst some of the biggest names in music of recent times. Stepping out to his own records over the last year including joints such as ‘Gasonlina’, ‘Late Nights’ and ‘How I Stay’, the young music prodigy is becoming the name on everyone’s lips as the heat starts bubbling around him and eyes are flickering in his direction.

Dropping his latest track ‘Best Life’, the track is pumped hip-hop energy and a blend of lo-fi, a sound becoming synonymous to SS. The syncretic and dark vibe is unmistakably mixed with his melodic and soulful high-pitched ad-libs and the laid-back yet confident delivery that he showers across the beat.

From the success of the audio so far, the visuals are immaculate, following a theme from the vocals, there is a darker eeriness with the thick bass, whilst SS shows off his best life in London. Collaborating with HoneywoodSix on the production this is pure, unadulterated vibes as the young music boss captures everything about what it is right now to stand out, and he does it with defined clarity and confidence.

Steven Christopher Delivers His New Video For ‘In My Head’

STEVEN CHRISTOPHER‘s music video for his single ‘In My Head’ feature his friends and R&B/pop singer himself storm Area 51, causing a little chaos along the way…

Taking off on a road trip in search of aliens, the group eventually find exactly what they’re looking for. The video’s concept of alien abduction plays on the song’s lyrics about being a loner and feelings of not fitting in.

Speaking of the latest visual, Steven says: “When writing the treatment, I tried to think of another way to express a sometimes dark but very real desire to get away besides the obvious. Being a Sci-Fi nerd, the idea of being taken to an entirely new galaxy seemed a lot more interesting.”

The video is Steven’s first stab at directing along with frequent collaborator Joey Lopez…check it out below…
