NIGHTMARE – [93FEETOFSMOKE] ft. [guardin]

Some artists are people who have been on my radar for months and sometimes even years, but there just seems to be something that lacks in my mind because it takes something big to actually get around to listening to them. Sometimes the results make me feel dumb because I can’t believe how long I missed out on their music, and other times, it makes sense why I never officially got in tune with them in the first place. Well, 93FEETOFSMOKE is a clear example of the ladder in my previous statement, because although I had heard him on various songs throughout the hyperpop community, I knew that he was going to have that punk vibe that I grew up on and so often crave, so when I finally officially decided to check his Spotify out a few months back, I was absolutely stunned at the talent that the Richmond, Virginia artist possessed. Ever since then, I have made it a point to check out every new release, so when he dropped his latest song “NIGHTMARE” with the legend guardin, I didn’t even blink before listening. The song itself (produced by SMOKE and Aaron Osborne) is as completely high-energy and …

Unexpected – [Eman Get Dough]

Being cold-hearted is something that not a lot of people like to do, but some people have to do it, depending on certain circumstances. Whether you’re a person who has been lied to a lot, been crossed over by one of the homies, or just have developed trust issues, having a cold heart is something that many people take pride in. Hailing all the way from North Miami, Eman Get Dough knows what it feels like to come from certain environments that force you to build up a wall on who you let into your life and who you do not. The best way to speak on the subject is to put it in a song; that said, Eman is making a debut on the Lyrical platform with the release of his latest single, “Unexpected”. Rapping over what many would call a “pain beat”, Eman raps and harmonizes about how the environment he grew up in caused him to become an individual who closes out and trusts very few. “Gotta keep a cold heart where I’m from” he raps during the chorus, as he continues to double down on exactly why he feels that way throughout the duration of the …

Church – [Tommy Ice] ft. [Guardin]

Tommy Ice has long been one of my favorite underground artists for more reasons than one. He has perfected his craft throughout his years in music, proving that he’s not just a threat behind a mic considering he often produces many of his own hits as well. His dexterous abilities have helped him shine through brighter than other artists in the scene because he has the uncanny ability to sound great over all different styles of production. Due to the fact that he produces himself, he is able to walk the fine line of pushing himself out of his comfort zone while also giving himself a chance to still remain consistently brilliant on all sorts of instrumentals, so I think it’s this variety that he shows off that keeps fans on their toes and helps him continuously add new sounds to his sonic repertoire. Most recently, he decided to team up with the New York-based singer Guardin for their brand-new song “Church”, and I was blown away with the results. Guardin was an artist I was previously unaware of, but after hearing this track, I’m excited to see what other music he has brought to life because his voice is …

Premiere: Polaroid – [Saiah] [Guardin]

Whether singing a hook or dying his hair in the middle of a performance, Arizona artist Saiah has always stuck out with dedication. In every facet of his artistry thus far, he’s communicated the sentiment that he would die for this art, which is reflected in the honesty of his music, from the lightest of moods to the darkest. If not anything else, AZ’s own is among the most heartful when it comes to penning a song, just as we’ve heard in his impeccable new single, “Polaroid,” alongside Guardin. Today, Saiah’s passion receives a visual component, as “Polaroid” gets a well-deserved music video to match. Based on body language alone, it’s clear from the very start of the video that Saiah’s full energy is put into this song, with every lyric tugging at his heart more than the last. Pictured alongside an arguing love interest, as well as Guardin, himself — who poses as a scarecrow, at first — “Polaroid” turns its sincere acoustic instrumentation and frenzied emotion into a naturally-compelling visual, bringing Saiah and co. together until they scream the song at the top of their lungs, holding one another close. The constant between it all? A sing-along hook, confessing, …

November – [Saiah]

It may be January according to the calendar, but if you ask Arizona artist Saiah, we’re already headed past Fall again. Today, the budding talent is back and better than ever, releasing his first track of the new year, “November.” Guarding a supply of glistening melodies, “November” is structured with a set of knocking drums, hard-hitting to an extent while just in line with the song’s emotive tone. Meanwhile, in a lyrical sense, Saiah presents a fairly somber mood, speaking on the troubles of lacking loyalty in a relationship. Passionate by default thanks to this subject matter, his cadences fit the occasion, and offer a contemplative side of Saiah’s artistry, complete with infectious vocal inflections to match. After discovering Saiah via his Loverboyraceway Lostboy EP, 2019 became quite a promising year for AZ’s own. Now heading into 2020, it’s clear that Saiah is more than ready to turn things up a notch. Leading the way with “November,” get hip and peep the brand new offering below!
