It’s been some time QUINCY has graced to this blog, but he’s back with a spanking new video for track, ‘Jetty’ which premiered yesterday (18th September) via YouTube.
Known for wooing the ladies with smooth R&B tracks such as ‘On Yo Azz’, ‘No Stress’ and ‘Special’, Quincy switches direction and arrives with a heavy dose of trap-style beats to deliver his silky smooth bars…something we haven’t heard for a while.
Now you know what to do…hit that play button on the ‘Jetty’ video below…
With his new single, New York-based pop artist JVSTN. continues his journey into a synthy, sample-based pop sound, but this time experiments with Hip Hop and Psychedelic elements. After the successful release of his first original song earlier this year, JVSTN. is excited to build his discography with another ethereal creation.
Out today, ‘LOST & FOUND’ started when he attended the Governor’s Ball music festival in NYC 2021, his first festival since the beginning of COVID. JVSTN. wanted to capture the feeling of looking around the crowd and seeing lovers kiss, friends smile, and strangers groove to the same beat. He cuts these dopamine-heavy emotions with more depressive and anxious thoughts in the verses and bridge to build up to a psychedelic explosion in the song’s third act. This song was co-written with his longtime writing partner and friend, Charlie Aldrich.
‘LOST & FOUND’ follows JVSTN.’s previous well received offering, ‘Dancing With The Enemy’, an euphoric formula of layered sampled vocals, trip-hop-like beats and an elegant topline. The Brooklyn-based pop hero manages to deliver a track that will appease not only big playlists and radio outlets, but also listeners on the edgier part of the spectrum, effectively bridging the gap to art-pop.
‘LOST & FOUND’ is out today on various music platforms… Check out the official video for the single below…
SON OF TONY’s single, ‘I’m The Son’ ( released via Aim 1st Entertainment), stays true to this unique and exciting combination of creative and musical values. With production by Tobes and mixed by “Dazzle ” The Machine” Fowler the single is highly recommended to fans of classic boom-bap tones.
Following the release of his reflective new album The Rear View, Grammy-winning Hip-Hop legend DIAMOND D shares the official music video for the project’s celebratory standout ‘Live My Life’. Released yesterday (30th August) via YouTube, the Varras Tower-directed video plays out over sunny scenes of palm trees, beaches, and bikinis, which compliment the song’s warm production by Focus… and hook sung by Ashtin Martin.
“This song is about living in the present and celebrating the good life. It was written post pandemic when everything was shut down and morale as a whole was down globally. Rising out of that whole ordeal was the premise of this song. We should all live our lives to the fullest.” – Diamond D
Harlem NYC’s own RAYNE STORM is back with his latest eclectic rap album ‘Audiocity’. Within a month of its release the album has gained over 60,000 Spotify streams, over 100,000 across all platforms with the momentum rising. AudioCity also reached #4 in Hip-Hop/Rap and #21 in All Genres on iTunes in the country of Bahrain off the strength of the single “Revenge” ft.
