Bobby Sessions To Release Debut EP

RVLTN – Chapter 1: The Divided States of AmeriKKKa BEING RELEASED ON JULY 20TH

LISTEN TO “LIKE ME” HERE & WATCH VIDEO HERE

LISTEN TO “PICK A SIDE” HERE & WATCH VIDEO HERE

“My RVLTN EP series is about taking the politically incorrect conversations from the barbershop and expressing them through music. Chapter 1, “The Divided States Of AmeriKKKa” highlights the root of race issues in this country. It addresses white supremacy, systematic oppression, as well as introspective realizations about the responsibility of becoming a leader. RVLTN will continue to unfold and evolve throughout upcoming chapters in my quest for viable solutions, black empowerment, and justice. This only the beginning.”

– Bobby Sessions

Bobby’s a highly talented rhymer and lyricist, and he raps over production that pulls from both real-deal funk and real-deal jazz… He’s really the whole package: good delivery, a good message, and an ear for picking good beats. 

Sessions confronts racism with a captivating flow that’s both acrimonious and awe-inspiring.

“Like Me” embodies everything we love about hip-hop: punchy, poignant, political, and powerful.

Ari Lennox

Alternative soul singer, Ari Lennox (Dreamville/Interscope), has just whipped up a sweet and sultry single; a well-deserved treat for fans everywhere. The single is today’s Zane Lowe Beats 1 World Record and is now available on all digital platforms. Written by Lennox and produced by Elite, “Whipped Cream” finds the vocalist pining for an old beau over a laid-back melody and amid stately horns. Lennox’s riffs and lyrics take subtle yet powerful turns, making this track easy to digest while leaving it flavored with substance; just as its name alludes. Take a listen HERE.

“‘Whipped Cream’ is my little baby that expresses how I feel about an ex that I’m still not over. He’s the same n***a that I talked about in PHO,” says Ari.

“Whipped Cream” is the latest release from the Washington D.C. native who dropped her debut EP, PHO, in late 2016. PHO showcased Lennox’s immense talent while highlighting her position as the only female and sole vocalist of her crew. The young talent has described her music as “modern, relaxed, turned up soul… reminiscent of the beautiful music from the ‘70s” while labeling her voice, “imperfect, but pretty.”

LORD HURON, VIDE NOIR:

“cinematic”

Vide Noir adds touches of garage-rock distortion to a narrative of love and fortune found, inspired by classic pulp fiction writers like Raymond Chandler and illuminated by a mysterious emerald glow. It’s the spookiest entry yet in a growing catalog of the atmospheric, the melodic, and the arcane.”

“They evolved into an expansive festival-folk juggernaut that will take their fizzy

and fuzzy upcoming third LP, the Dave Fridmann-mixed Vide Noir, to a large outdoor amphitheater near you.”

“More than ever before, it sounds like Lord Huron had the ambition and the confidence to take their sound to all kinds of new places, with no rules, and no concern for what anyone expects Lord Huron to sound like.”

“The tracks are robust and muscular, hitting on the tune-fulness and warm

melodies that fans of the band would expect, but sounding more ready than ever for the big stages that they will be playing.”
