DJ SNAKE RELEASES “ENZO”

DJ SNAKE RELEASES NEW TRACK “ENZO” FT. OFFSET, 21 SAVAGE, GUCCI MANE & SHECK WES

DJ Snake has shared his new single “Enzo,” a powerhouse hip-hop anthem featuring Offset, 21 Savage, Gucci Mane, and Sheck Wes. Released via Geffen Records, “Enzo” premiered today as Zane Lowe’s latest World Record on Apple Music’s Beats 1.

Listen to “Enzo” by DJ Snake ft. Offset, 21 Savage, Gucci Mane, and Sheck Wes HERE.

Revealing DJ Snake’s deep roots in hip-hop and its enduring influence on his music today, “Enzo” features some of the genre’s most vital artists: Offset (of the platinum-selling, Grammy Award-nominated trio Migos), 21 Savage (whose critically acclaimed 2018 album i am > i was debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200), Gucci Mane (the trap pioneer and founder of 1017 Records), and Sheck Wes (a 20-year-old songwriter/rapper from Harlem known for his triple-platinum breakthrough single “Mo Bamba”). With its menacing beat and undeniable hook, the hard-hitting but hypnotic track also showcases DJ Snake’s boundary-warping ingenuity as a producer.

Last Friday night, DJ Snake teased “Enzo” as part of his explosive set at Coachella Weekend 2. During Weekend 1 of the festival, DJ Snake delivered one of Coachella 2019’s most-talked-about and instantly iconic moments by bringing Cardi B, Ozuna, and Selena Gomez onstage for the first-ever live performance of their massive hit song “Taki Taki.” The second global #1 record for DJ Snake — his first being “Lean On” ft. MØ, a 2015 collaboration with Major Lazer — “Taki Taki” premiered last September, and quickly became the ninth-fastest music video of all time to hit 100 million views on YouTube.

DJ Snake will be in Las Vegas this week for the Latin Billboard Awards, where he has five nominations including Crossover Artist of the Year, Producer of the Year, and Hot Latin Song of the Year for “Taki Taki” (with Selena Gomez, Ozuna & Cardi B).

Maggie Rogers

[On Give A Little] Rogers churned out a cathartic pop song about empathy and unity

Toss in a righteous guitar riff, plus a cascade of affirming handclaps, and Rogers emerges with a much-needed sunbeam of a song.” – Pitchfork

Give A Little is a natural and groovy extension of her stunning organic soundscapes.” –V Magazine

Like every song she puts out, [Give A Little] is a surprise that further proves her dexterity and versatility as an artist.” –Paper

It’s a warm, rippling pop song that makes the most of Rogers’ graceful, approachable voice. It already sounds like a hit.” –Stereogum

Today Maggie Rogers debuts the video for her new track Give A Little from her forthcoming debut album on Capitol Records. Filmed in Pacoima, CA the video was co-directed by Rogers and Alan Del Rio Ortiz and features Rachel Matthews, Camila Mendes, Myriah Rose, Firefly, Makayla Menard and Bridget Gamble.

Watch it HERE.

I had so much fun directing this video alongside Alan Del Rio Ortiz,” says Rogers. “I was obsessed with 70s skate culture in high school and really just wanted to have a silly day recreating my favorite scenes from Lords of Dogtown and paying homage to my favorite Farrah Fawcett photos. Those early skate videos feel so raw and powerful, it was important to me to show that that energy could also be female. It was super special to have my two college pals, Rachel Matthews and Camila Mendes, along for the ride. We’ve been friends since the first week of our freshman year, but our schedules have gotten so beautifully and amazingly kind of crazy since we graduated a couple years ago. It was so much fun just to spend the day dancing and giggling with each other like the old days.

Produced by GRAMMY winning producer Greg Kurstin (Adele, Sia, Foo Fighters) and Rogers, the upbeat, effervescent song can be streamed / downloaded HERE. Give A Little follows the acclaimed single Fallingwater, which NPR hailed as a powerful, mesmerizing depiction of Rogers’ transition over the last two years a celebration of the terrifying yet thrilling process of change.

Rogers will kick off a North American headline tour on October 15 at The Fillmore in San Francisco, CA. The run will include shows at The Observatory in Santa Ana, CA (October 18), The Vic Theatre in Chicago, IL (October 30) and Royale in Boston, MA (November 5). Mallrat will support on all dates- see all dates here. The outing marks Rogers’ first headline tour since her summer 2017 outing, which sold out in minutes.
Rogers will also headline two sold out shows at Koko in London (August 29 + 30) following her performances at the U.K.’s Reading and Leeds festival. She will also perform at the Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival in Franklin, TN (September 22 + 23) and co-headline the 2018 All Things Go Fall Classic, one of Washington, DC’s largest signature festivals. She and LPX (Lizzy Plapinger) curated for opening day, October 6.

Maggie Rogers is a producer, songwriter and performer from Easton, Maryland. After her education at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, she released her breakout single Alaska and subsequent critically acclaimed debut EP, Now That The Light Is Fading. Alaska has since charted in Spotify’s Viral 50 in 40 countries, hit #1 in 23 countries and now has over 100 million global combined streams to date. The BBC, Tidal, Google Play, Vevo, Pandora and numerous publications including Rolling Stone, NYLON, SPIN, Billboard and more have tipped her as an artist to watch. NPR named her one of its Favorite Musicians and The New Yorker declares, Maggie Rogers is an artist of her time.

The Spencer Lee Band

The Spencer Lee Band reveals a live rendition of the classic “With a Little Help From My Friends” (Live In Studio) via SB Projects/Republic Records.

Get the song HERE and video for the song HERE.

The group teamed up with Fader to give the song a first look and share the soulful cover this morning. Of the song, the outlet wrote, “Spencer Lee’s voice is already a classic.” Known for their unbelievable live chemistry, the song is a perfect representation of their unparalleled live energy. Read full interview here.

Led by Kansas-born and Los Angeles-based singer and multi-instrumentalist Spencer Lee, the group has quietly become a burgeoning phenomenon. They contributed “The Wolf” to the chart-topping 50 Shades Freed Official Soundtrack Album, and it’s already generated nearly 7 million Spotify streams and counting while their debut single “Kissing Tree” continues to climb the charts.

Next up, The Spencer Lee Band storms the festival circuit this summer with performances at Governors Ball,BonnarooFirefly, and more.

Be on the lookout for more news on The Spencer Lee Band soon!

EDEN RELEASES ALBUM

Dublin-based vocalist-producer and multi-instrumentalist EDENborn Jonathon Ng, releases his debut album, vertigo, today via all digital providers. An exclusive T-shirt is available for purchase along with a digital album bundle for one week only beginning today here: https://shop.iameden.eu/.
EDEN also premieres the video for the song “float” today.  “Walking the line between stirring beats and subdued lyrics, “float is a literal medley of earnest emotion and ingenuity,” saysLadygunn.
Shot in Ukraine, the “float” video completes the trilogy directed by Zhang + Knight, who also lensed EDEN’s videos for gold and crash.” Watch it HERE.
On March 1st, EDEN kicks off the North American leg of his headlining vertigo world tour. The 21-year-old musician sold out several shows almost immediately and added additional dates and upgraded venue sizes in over ten cities due to high demand. Fourteen shows, including two nights at Irving Plaza in New York City and one night at The Fonda in Los Angeles, are sold out. Tickets for the remaining shows are on sale now at http://iameden.eu/tour. All dates can be found below.
Several tracks from vertigo have been released, including “gold,” which flew to No. 10 on Spotify’s Global Viral Chart upon release and has over four million Spotify streams to date, as does “crash.”
Pigeons & Planes declared that “‘gold’ showcases [his] songwriting skills and forward-thinking arrangement choices, and it’s an exciting look at an artist poised for a breakthrough year … EDEN is set to have a big 2018.” “gold” followed “start//end,” which Billboard called,striking … a nostalgically cast reflection on youth and all-too-relatable feelings of desperation and hope – there’s a secret depth to [EDEN’s] sound.”
V Magazine declares, “both (EDEN’s) music and his persona seem reflective of his overall goal on his upcoming debut album – to make something grand and magical out of something that seems much smaller… Given the captivating and utterly intriguing output he’s given us so far, the task should be easily doable.”
On his 2016 breakthrough EP i think you think too much of me, EDEN struck a rare balance of ingenuity and intuition with its guitar-heavy take on electronic pop. With vertigo, he takes an even more instinct-driven approach to his music, a process he perceives as a form of exploration. “Even when I’m writing, I don’t feel like I’m actually creating anything,” he says. “It’s more like I’m uncovering something that’s already there. Like how an archaeologist doesn’t create a fossil – they’re just finding it and uncovering it, and maybe rearranging it if it’s broken. Releasing this body of work is terrifying and exciting and overwhelming for me. A lot of it is so personal. This album is not a coming-of-age story, but it caused one.”
Racking up over 90 million streams on Spotify to date, i think you think too much of me EP hit No. 1 on the iTunes Alternative Chart, and No. 2 on Billboard‘s Heatseeker chart. From the bedroom of his childhood home, Ng initially began to cultivate a large online following and made his EP debut with End Credits in August 2015. Despite making no effort to promote it, he soon found the work gaining major attention – ultimately amassing more than 145 million streams combined across his two EPs. EDEN’s first U.S. tour sold out immediately and he spent that summer performing at major U.S. music festivals including Governors Ball, Bonnaroo and Firefly.  He also performed at the Reading and Leeds festivals in the UK and Fuji Rock in Japan.

“…gripping” – Billboard

“A unique combination of electropop and post-punk styles” – Boston Globe

Liverpool trio The Wombats have unveiled a dark, cinematic music video for their new single “Lemon To A Knife Fight” PRESS HERE to watch via NME. The visual puts a twist on the song’s exploration of a toxic relationship’s emotional rollercoaster with a sinister plot involving kidnapping and attempted murder, which finds the heroine turning the tables on her attackers thanks to a phantasmagoric transformation.

Director Finn Keenan shared, “The idea for this video came from the line in the brief ‘David Lynch meets Power Rangers’. I wanted to make something that started off dark, surreal and little bit disturbing but then flip it on its head with a big ole’ twist that led to a ludicrous ending. These hunters do this every month, but this time they picked the wrong werewolf.”

“Lemon To A Knife Fight” is The Wombats’ first release from forthcoming album  BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE WILL RUIN YOUR LIFE, out  February 9, 2018 via Kobalt Music Recordings, and premiered via  The Fader and as the “Hottest Record in the World” on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 showBEAUTIFUL PEOPLE WILL RUIN YOUR LIFEis available for pre-order now, PRESS HERE to pre-order and receive “Lemon To A Knife Fight” as an instant grat track.

Written from three corners of the globe – drummer Dan Haggis in London, bassist Tord Øverland Knudsen nursing his new family in Oslo and frontman Matthew “Murph” Murphy in Los Angeles –
