DAYDREAM MASI × “STARDUST”

DAYDREAM MASI PREMIERES NEW SINGLE “STARDUST”

NEW PROJECT SLOW RAGE DUE OUT SOON

OHIO-BRED ARTIST TO PERFORM AT SMOKIN GROOVES FEST ON 6/15

 

Emerging singer/rapper/songwriter/producer daydream Masi has shared a magnetic and moody new single called “Stardust.” Released via Interscope Records, “Stardust” is available now through all digital retailers.

Listen to “Stardust” by daydream Masi HERE

Hailing from Akron, Ohio, daydream Masi merges hip-hop, soul, R&B, and electronic music into a lush yet bold sound that defies all genre boundaries. On “Stardust,” the 21-year-old artist dreams up a smooth but unpredictable sonic palette, unfolding in airy textures and ominous beats, subtly sweet melodies and jagged distortion.

Last month, daydream Masi made his Interscope debut with “Nightlife,” a hazy and hypnotic track built on tropically inspired production. Now at work on a full-length project titled Slow Rage, he aims to instill a certain sense of emotional purpose into each song he creates.

“I always write something for someone,” says daydream Masi. “It’s rare [that] I’m writing songs for no reason. I’m always thinking of someone in my mind when I’m creating music and the vibe I can give them, the vibe shared together.”

On June 15, daydream Masi will take the stage at Smokin Grooves Fest in Long Beach, CA. Headlined by Usher and Erykah Badu, the festival also includes performances by artists like Ella Mai, Common, Kali Uchis, and The Pharcyde. Go here for more info.

About daydream Masi:

Born and raised in Akron, daydream Masi grew up in a musically inclined family and began to release his own material around the age of 17. Along with mining inspiration from the inventive artistry of Childish Gambino and Kanye West, he’s continually focused on bringing both raw sensitivity and purposeful world-building to his music — a dynamic he defines as “emotional escapism.” Prior to signing with Interscope, daydream Masi caught buzz with self-released songs like “Marguerite” (a track that’s now amassed over 446K streams on SoundCloud) and “Eucalyptus Tree” (now at over 245K streams).

STEVEN MALCOLM

Steven Malcolm’s sophomore album on 4 Against 5, a division of Curb | Word Entertainment, The Second City (available 1/25/19), is a vulnerable look into Malcolm’s own journey to find his true identity. Dedicated to his father who immigrated from Montego Bay, Jamaica, nickname, “The Second City.” At the age of 10, his father was deported back to Jamaica by U.S. authorities where he later passed away leaving Malcolm fatherless and with a broken heart. Yet, it was through being without a father, he found his calling to music and true identity as a man.

This album is a musical and cinematographic representation of this young man’s journey in search for his true self. Reality is portrayed lyrically like never before – the battles, the dark valleys, failures, to ultimately showcase the redemptive light that conquers the darkness life throws at each of us. This is Steven Malcolm’s story; his hope, his pain, his joy, and his truth.

Stylistically merging hip hop with reggae and inspirational, The Second City features dynamic tracks unlike any sound available today. Featured songs include: “Redemption Song,” “Fuego (feat. Anderson Michael),” “Even Louder (feat. Leeland),” “Devil Is A Liar,” and “The Beauty of Dreams.”

Follow Steven Malcolm to The Second City as he lets you in on his story as a way to inspire you and others to achieve their dreams.
