Hope It don’t Kill Me

Arin Ray blesses our page today with his romantic language of love on his latest single ‘Hope It Don’t Kill Me’ which features the talented guru Boogie. The two discuss love and relationship and how they sacrificed themselves for love, in hopes that it’s not their demise. Taking a road less traveled by most youth in our generation, living in a over saturated society that promotes one-night stands and emotionless hook-ups, making love more about lust than feeling. Which is why it’s so important Arin releases this single to let his listeners know that chivalry isn’t dead by showing positive images of minority youth together in a relationship.  Providing an outlet of simple reality, showing vulnerability and a human element instead of the far-fetched happy ever after stories or one hitter quitters we are so use to seeing. Make sure you do yourself a favor and stream the video below and as always…

The Afrikan Space Program

Today’s post comes from a talented producer who goes by the name of Ras G. Not too often does a sound tickle the ears as well as blow you away mentally, but leave it to Ras G and his comrades to produce a sound so unique that it requires you to listen numerous times before catching everything that is going on. Manipulating melodies and creating the perfect imperfect beat, making off-beat weirdness sound cool. Not only does he deliver sonic-ally but he accompanies his sound with intense visual concepts that accent the song well. The Los Angeles producer prides himself in making unconventional brilliant music while mixing genre’s creating a fusion that’s international. Delivering sounds seldom heard on the western hemisphere, opening a new world for the listener to explore. Make sure you check out Ras G song below and as always…

D’Artiste

Often times music producers get the least credit for helping create great music, but in actuality they are the reason most magic happen. Many hear Willow and Jaden Smith sound and attribute them for creating a new wave of frequencies and style. While their uniqueness needs not be overlooked neither should the production work of the young guru Daniel D’artise. The California native has generated much of the two superstar’s tracks by blending beautiful ambient sounds with abstract drum patterns creating a futuristic wave. Taking you thru a psychological mind floss of vibrant sounds, while stimulating balance with his selection of chords and melancholy feels. Below is a beat/mix-tape of his latest production placements in the industry, I highly recommend you take the time and check this entire tape out.

Run!

The London-based Tanzanian artist Tiggs Da Author releases his latest uplifting energetic single “Run” featuring the magical Lady Leshurr. The 25 year old poet, rapper, singer, songwriter and producer is inspired by obscure 60s narrative film, East African Jazz and Motown. His resulting sound is very rare to say the least. In his latest track “Run” Tiggs explains escaping life’s troubles with a distinctively reminiscent style of a modern day Ray Charles. Encouraging listeners not to let life’s dramas bring you down and sometimes it’s better to just run! Tiggs is accompanied by the lovely Lady Leshurr who adds a warm vibe that makes you want to dance and sing along instantly. Already making headway this track appeared on Fifa ’16 and ITV’s 2015 Rugby World Cup trailer.  Shot in South Africa this video accents the catchy lighthearted lyrics perfectly with shots of people hanging out of cars while gusheshe drifting (a popular phrase in South African culture), dope breakdancing and choreographed dancers running throughout the fun kinetic clip. Check out the video below and as always…

Anderson .Paak| Malibu

“Music is not music without soul” and the 29 year old Oakland native Anderson .Paak is the definition of soul. Following his debut album Venice .Paak delivers yet another masterpiece with Malibu. The 16-track project is full of energy thanks to his funky beats, witty wordplay, and a charisma that the music industry has been lacking for a while now. You definitely can see the fruits of his labor from Dr. Dre’s Grammy nominated Compton album as he scored features from BJ The Chicago Kid, Rhapsody, and hip-hop legend Talib Kweli to name a few. .Paak shows his versatility as an artist as well as he not only sings but displays his rapping ability. The album doesn’t just sound good though, his music has a message highlighting the real life situations and perspectives many artists of his stature seem to either conveniently forget or consciously neglect for financial gain. .Paak is gearing up for a huge 2016 with his band The FREE NATIONALS as they are set to tour Europe in February and to perform at Coachella this upcoming April. Malibu is available for purchase on iTunes and Google Play.
