DREAMstate” aims to exhibit the exclusive artistic approach of these four internationally known and trendsetting talents that are bringing new vitality into a specific technical and aesthetical idea, through the use of patterns, optical illusions, decontextualized images and ambiguous imaginaries that lead toward the creation of a new dimension. The strong familiarity of this with actual reality will destabilize the viewer, throwing him in a confused state of deja vu’. Solid bold lines, illusive interiors, surrealistic figures, hypnotic arrangements, thick brushstrokes, subconscious revelations and visual puzzling, will channel their energy into a clean and dreamy form that affects the whole environment, able to immerse the spectator into a dreamlike atmosphere.

HipHop artist AK Releases New Single

HipHop artist AK gets emotional on self-produced “Ignorance Is Bliss”

On “Ignorance Is Bliss,” AK gets real and reveals the all-too-relatable truth behind the feelings of the rise to success – claiming it to be ‘a gift and a curse.’ The single sonically mimics the peaks and valleys of this emotional journey. While his quick-witted verses reiterate the raw emotional battle of figuring out who can and cannot be trusted on the rise to the top; AK’s aching chorus evokes the intense desire to remain ignorant to the deterrents discovered along the way in the people and places in life that once felt safe and secure.

With lyrics ‘blessings around me / still feel like I’m sinking,’ AK takes a deep dive into the reality of the rarely touched on emotional side effects that come along with a fast track to success – a track that AK can definitely relate to as he has become quite the chart topper in a mere couple of years since first releasing music.

AK’s series of original singles have garnered the #1 spot on the U.S. iTunes Hip Hop Chart, the U.S. Top 20 iTunes Hip Hop Chart, graced the Top 25 iTunes Charts in four other countries, and landed on YouTube Music’s ‘Flow Superior’ Playlist. With his recent releases “Why Would I?,” “Déjà Vu” and “Like I Got It,” AK has hit a sweet spot of blending Hip Hop and R&B genres that pack the perfect punch of his versatility as an artist in terms of tone, lyrics and vocal range.

While his single “Broken” strikes an emotionally raw chord, with an accompanying music video to match. The single perfectly portrays AK’s masterful vocal ability, carried by a chorus of his raw and emotive vocals. While the dark and dreary music video for “Broken” mirrors the tormented tongue-twister verses and pained falsetto-laced vocals evoked by the feeling of a purely broken heart and the one who broke it. With each music release bigger than the last, it goes to show that AK is the next big thing in Hip Hop.

Scarlet Pleasure

DANISH TRIO SCARLET PLEASURE SHARE NEW SONG “GOOD TOGETHER” VIA VIRGIN RECORDS

Band Will Make U.S. Live Debut At School Night On October 23 And The Peppermint Club On October 25 In Los Angeles

LISTEN HERE:

https://VirginRecords.lnk.to/Spgoodtogether
Scarlet Pleasure are back with the new single “Good Together“- yet another soul warming post card from the Danish trio, who in 2017 delivered two major Danish hits, wrapped in their own unique sound and strong lyrics about escapism, paranoia, karaoke, and Vespas. “Good Together” is available for streaming and purchase via Virgin Records HERE.

Scarlet Pleasure will make their U.S. live debut in Los Angeles, CA at School Night on October 23 and The Peppermint Club on October 25.

 “It’s a song about a shipwrecked relationship, a feeling of uncertainty and what it could have developed into – but sometimes destiny decides differently,” says lead singer Emil Goll about “Good Together.” And namely destiny is practically synonym to the stories that Scarlet Pleasure has unwrapped on their latest releases. Goll further explains: “Life is in many ways a series of coincidences that are reflected by the choices we have made in the past. And we like to dive into these choices, both the good and the bad.”

With the single “Déjà VuScarlet Pleasure introduced a brand-new sound built around the DNA of the band: drums, bass, guitar, and vocal. The song went number 1 on the Danish Airplay Chart four weeks in a row and “Déjà Vu” is now certified Platinum in Denmark.

In June, the single “Limbo” and an EP by the same name followed. 15 weeks after the release, the single is still in the Top 5 and both the single and the EP have been certified Gold in Denmark. The two massive hits have set the course for a totally sold out tour in Denmark in November. In March 2018 Scarlet Pleasure, will perform their biggest shows so far at the two Danish arena venues – Scandinavian Congress Center in Aarhus and Forum in Copenhagen.

 Scarlet Pleasure consist of childhood friends Alexander, Emil and Joachim, who formed the band in Copenhagen in 2013 and quickly got their big commercial breakthrough with the single “Heat” (2x platinum in Denmark). Since then, the band has since their debut been nominated “Best Danish Group” at the Danish Grammys 2016, played the biggest venues and festivals in Denmark, toured with Lukas Graham and streamed more than 60 million times on Spotify.
