Fake Friends – [Katya Mila]

By Brodie Harvey // 23 Feb 2021

Yesterday we got a new video from rising R&B/Pop star Katya Mila based out of LA. While she may only be 3 songs deep in her catalog, Katya has already built a solid foundation and fanbase. Her latest single “Fake Friends” released at the end of last year, but Katya just dropped the visuals for the sultry track produced by Jaye Locke. The song touches on themes of sham relationships that surround her, trying to identify what’s really real. Katya has an immaculate voice, this track verges towards a sad yet sensual vibe which showcases her vocal talents. The video directed by Jayoh helps brings these feelings to life, beginning with Katya drowning before being surrounded by fake people in every situation she finds herself in. Sometimes, a strong video can really bring you into the world of an artist. With Katya behind the creative direction on this video, it shows she has a strong visual sense in tandem with Jayoh and Colin Shepard’s cinematography. We have seen some quality content come from Katya in her first three releases, this video being a major highlight. I’m excited to see how her platform continues to skyrocket once people experience these visuals. …

Hakuna Matata – [DaamCP]

By Brodie Harvey // 22 Feb 2021

It’s been some time since we last heard from Vancouver’s DaamCP. The energetic artist has taken the past few months to work on an upcoming EP, the first single being a strong introduction for what’s to come. On Friday, DaamCP dropped “Hakuna Matata” which is one of his hardest tracks to date. His focus has always been to make music that sounds best at loud volumes, paired with a ferocious live presence his sound is something to be experienced in a moshpit. This track has CP touching on his upbringing, not letting tough times prevent him from reaching the heights he was destined for. Along with the single, DaamCP dropped some insane visuals to accompany the single that take things to a whole other level. Directed by Marble Blu, the video has an amazing look to it with intriguing shots that keeps you engaged the whole way through. The use of color in the video makes the various backdrops look otherworldy, teleporting viewers into the world he’s created. This track has me very much looking forward to his upcoming project Kill CP due later this year. Watch the video for “Hakuna Matata” below! Produced by anthonydluxe & jayrewind  

New Jam Freestyle – [Trapland Pat]

By Brodie Harvey // 22 Feb 2021

Today we are featuring an artist who has been making some serious noise out of South Florida. He goes by the name Trapland Pat, if you’re a fan of quick-spitting energetic rappers then he is one for you. Pat has a very recognizable look, with his videos being the main source people have been discovering his music. I was incredibly curious after seeing a snippet of his latest video and immediately had to learn more about the rising emcee. His catalog is already fairly deep but his incredibly catchy new single “New Jam Freestyle” is the stand out thus far. This one really connected with me leading to me playing on repeat all weekend long. Trapland Pat’s new track is incredibly bouncy, using the playful key breaks in between the 808s to jampack incredible verses in between the infectious hook. South Florida has always produced artists that know how to combine melodic cadences with lyrics inspired by the streets, Trapland Pat is an artist that is up there with the best of them in terms of flow. The visuals for this track keep the energetic pacing you would expect from a bouncy banger like this. Overall, I am incredibly excited …

I C U – [Isaac Zale] ft. [Kota the Friend]

By Brodie Harvey // 19 Feb 2021

Over the past year, Isaac Zale has quietly been releasing some incredible music that I feel deserves to be in more conversations. The Canadian artist is special, he has the ability to create music in a multitude of styles and today we have an amazing new track that flexes his vocal talents. On his latest single “I C U”, Isaac opens the song by crooning over an amazing string pattern provided by SwuM. His singing abilities have been displayed on songs before but Isaac is really showing what he can do in this territory. Isaac enlisted Kota the Friend on this track, a combination I have been eager to hear together for some time. Kota has become somewhat of a heavy hitter with his outstanding lyricism, he does not disappoint on this one playing off Isaac’s playful chorus. Isaac has been staying very consistent with his release schedule and has teased a new album to follow up 2020’s None Of The Keys Fit. He has a new single dropping March 4 with Chuuwee, so there will be a lot more music coming from Isaac all year long! Listen to “ICU” on all platforms here!

BACK ON TRACK – [O2worldwide]

By Brodie Harvey // 19 Feb 2021

If you haven’t taken the time to get into the music of O2worldwide yet, you really have to question what you are doing with your life. The Oklahoma City-based collective consists of 16 members that all bring something beautiful to the table. It’s been 2 years since O2’s last full-length project was released and since that time, they have developed their sound as a whole. They have been teasing the release of their full-length project BACK ON TRACK for some time, with their fans waiting patiently for new music the group has finally released an album that is timed perfectly as brighter days look to bring us all back to the path we were on prior to this stupid pandemic struck a year ago. O2worldwide is comprised of members who almost all are fresh out of High School, while they are young their sound is timeless beyond their years. What stands out above all when listening to this album in its intended order is how the tracklist transitions seamlessly from song to song, the attention to detail that went into crafting the project is evident. Once you press play on the intro “TOO SOON”, you are locked in for a …

beem – [916frosty] [ILYMAX] [Zcxr]

By Brodie Harvey // 11 Feb 2021

One thing is for certain, 2020 marked a major shift in music. There’s a number of ways this can be interpreted, but the dramatic rise of formerly niche genres like hyperpop and digicore has seemingly exploded with a high percentage of teens spending a majority of their time on the internet. 916frosty has always been an artist at the forefront of this digitized new sound, however, he recently just made his first foray into digicore. Teaming up with ILYMAX and Zcxr, 916frosty’s new track “beem” has him leaning fully into the new genre that seems to fit his vocals perfectly. If you’ve been a fan of frosty then you know he has always been an artist to stay private but there’s no doubt he has been putting in work lately. The glitched-out song features stellar verses from ILYMAX, Zcxr, and 916frosty who all are artists you should be paying close attention to if you’re into this quickly growing subgenre. Hopefully, this year sees 916frosty getting more experimental with the music he makes. His voice has become iconic, a lot of artists coming out now probably were influenced by his approach to music so to see him now testing the waters …

BONES – [Elroy]

By Brodie Harvey // 11 Feb 2021

Last year, we covered Pennsylvania native Elroy who’s voice immediately grabbed my attention. Elroy is another artist who doesn’t feel limited by any one genre when making his music, being able to pull from various influences is what makes so many new artists coming out right now exciting and fresh. While not feeling boxed into any one style of music, the creative freedom young artists have is unparalleled. Elroy is a prime example of that. On his latest single “BONES”, the rising star is at his best using his gruff voice overproduction that drifts from electronic,  to alternative, to hip-hop and constantly keeps the listener engaged which all leads to a gut-wrenching drop. Elroy’s tone is ominous throughout, as the beat builds you can’t help but feel like moving as the energy builds even though the subject matter of the lyrics is a little dark. Can’t wait to see the madness that goes down at his live shows in the future. With a solid catalog underneath him, Elroy continues to level up his sound. Seeing the progression, I would not be surprised if he becomes a well-known name by the time December comes around. Be on the lookout for new …

LOVE – [Shordie Shordie] & [Murda Beatz] ft. [Trippie Redd]

By Brodie Harvey // 11 Feb 2021

If you haven’t been aware, Shordie Shordie and Murda Beatz have quietly become one of the most dominant partnerships in recent memory. Since exploding on the scene with “Bitchuary”, Shordie Shordie has always been an artist we’ve expected to leap to another level. We’re now three releases deep and each single seems to keep getting better, their most recent track “LOVE” features Trippie Redd and is a certified hit. The way Shordie Shordie uses his unique voice to effortlessly glide over this perfectly timed modern-love ballad is something nobody else is doing right now. We’ve always known what the Baltimore-native was destined for greatness, but Murda seems to have unlocked a different beast inside of Shordie Shordie. We’ve seen Murda Beatz turn people into superstars time and time again, his taste in selecting artists to work with is impeccable and this latest single is just evidence of what he saw in Shordie. Trippie Redd’s feature fits the tone of this one, his raspy vocals make for the perfect addition to a song that will surely hit deep with anybody looking to reconnect with the one that got away as Valentine’s Day approaches. This is the first time Trippie has worked …
