LWTGG

Today’s post comes from a unique individual named Oliver Francis whom if judged by his cover might be mistaken for a pop star instead of a rapper, but honestly after hearing “LWTGG” I recant my statement.

ABRAKADABRA

Atlanta-bred beauty takes her music into her own hands: she writes, sings and even is a self-taught producer. Abra kicked off her flourishing career by covering popular southern hip hop songs on YouTube. It wasn’t long before Awful Records (Atlanta based label) brought her under their wings. The vocal goddess sound is completely different and refreshing. The sultry singer has combined her love for R&B, house and 90’s pop with an upbeat dance vibe which can be heard on her latest EP, Roses. Abra has not lost her hunger and still writes her own lyrics and creates her own beats, she still records out of her walk in closet that’s in her parents’ house. She may not have the bells and whistle of a professional studio which creates a competent polished sound, but it’s original. Abra’s music tends to favor low bass lines and distortions, which pair well with her high-pitched, slightly edgy voice. Each song deals with real life situations we all can relate to, clarifying topics about friendships and break-ups, to mistakes and lessons learned from personal experiences. Since embarking in the music scene Abra has released two mix tapes: “BLQ Velvet” in January of last year, and “Rose” five months after. Below is her latest 12-track project “ROSE” press play and get lost inside her world. And as always…

Jacuzzi La Fleur 

The dreadlocked whiz kid from the six is back with more nostalgic visuals for your pleasure. Jazz Cartier a Toronto nomad teams up with director Kyle Sanderson to drop two videos in one, combining “The Valley/Dead or Alive.” Both songs coming off his debut mix tape “Marauding in Paradise” which was released in 2015. The mysterious rappers versatility radiates over the boom-bap production while adding a unique OVO-contagious style that analysis his hometown from a bird’s eye view. Starting off trekking through the night Jazz welcomes everyone to the dark side of his city during the first part of this video, while subtly transforming to a softer lighter tone during the second, all while retaining the same intensity and creating an effective sound that embodies duality. The cinematography is filled with cryptic material which accents the artist lyrics to perfection. Demonstrating his strong will to survive and succeed in spite of the surrounding hate. We expect this year to be Cartier breakthrough year and look forward to more content. Press play on the link below and tell us what you think.
