Listen to “Your Love” by Drama Relax ft. Tory Lanez & Lil Tjay HERE.

As the follow-up to his Interscope debut single “Private,” “Your Love” again showcases Drama Relax’s melodic flow and emotionally honest lyrics. With its bright and airy beats, the track also builds a brilliant contrast between its smooth texture and the powerful intensity of verses from Tory Lanez and South Bronx rapper Lil Tjay.

Your Love I’m sure is very relatable to a lot of people who are in a new relationship and have those really intoxicating feelings.” Says Drama Relax. “Working with Tory Lanez and Lil TJay on this was amazing, those guys killed their parts” 

Along with “Private,” “Your Love” is set to appear on Drama Relax’s upcoming debut project, due out soon from Interscope.

Tonight in Portland, Oregon, Drama Relax continues his run of West Coast dates as the support act for hip-hop artist Mike Stud. Later this month, he’ll embark on a national tour supporting Texas-bred singer/songwriter SoMo. Kicking off on March 29 in Nashville, the SoMo tour wraps up on May 11 in Dallas.

Dramatic Improvement in Neutral Machine Translation

There has been a dramatic drop in the cost of translation services for major corporations in the past year and the savings amounts to at least 30%, according to One Hour Translation (OHT). The company, the world’s largest online translation agency, attributes the drop to the improved capabilities of NMT (Neural Machine Translation) technology.

The downward trend in translation costs is expected to continue as NMT engines are being trained to identify thousands of new words and phrases using the latest machine learning technology. That is good news for global e-commerce companies like Booking.com, Hotels.com, Agoda, Trivago, Amazon, Alibaba and others who depend almost daily on quality translation of large volumes of content for their millions of customers worldwide. 

“Around third of corporate content that we assess can already be translated using only NMT with no need for human input in the process,” said Ofer Shoshan, CEO and co-founder of OHT. He adds that the percentage is increasing all the time as the capabilities of the various translation engines continue to improve. The remainder is translated using hybrid translation that combines NMT and human post-editing, a process pioneered by OHT and utilizes human translators. 

OHT has developed a content assessment process for its corporate customers that is conducted by five or six experts who review the content. They quantify the content into three distinct categories that are defined and based on the amount of human input that will be necessary. The range is from no need for human input with the translation solely based on NMT engines, hybrid translation which combines NMT and human post-editing and a final category where human translation is required. As part of the process, OHT also recommends to its corporate customers the NMT engine that is best suited for a specific translation. 

“The translation services industry is being revolutionized with the cost of translation declining at a time when demand for rapid quality translations is skyrocketing,” noted Shoshan. The technological advances in the field, he believes, will lead to a further savings as the percentage of content translated by NMT or by hybrid translation approaches 50% or more. That process is enhanced as the NMT engines are trained and constantly updated to identify more and more words and phrases. In the coming years the trend is expected to completely change the global translation service market and sharply reduce the number of human translators. 

Shy FX Releases “Bad After We”

Legend, soundman, DJ and all-round UK pioneer Shy FX has released new track Bad After We featuring Ghetts and Kojey Radical.

Premiered simultaneously last night by Annie Mac on Radio 1 as her ‘Hottest Record In The World’ and DJ Target on Radio 1Xtra, Bad After We ft. Ghetts & Kojey Radical is lifted from Shy’s forthcoming long player project, Raggamuffin SoundTape. It follows the release of Rudeboy Lovesong ft. Sweetie Irie & Cara Delevingne and Roll The Dice ft. Stamina MC & Lily Allen.

Featuring a broad spectrum of both established and upcoming artists – including Cara Delevingne, Chronixx, Gappy Ranks, Ghetts, Kojey Radical, Lily Allen, Maverick Sabre and Sinead Harnett (to name but a few) – Raggamuffin SoundTape flawlessly switches through Hip Hop, R ‘n’ B, Dancehall, Breakbeat and Jungle to form an eclectic soundscape that melds together seamlessly into a satisfying whole.  

Raggamuffin SoundTape, released 15th March and available to pre-order now, is the first long player Shy FX has made that he feels truly represents him as an artist: 

“Everything fits together – its tight, it feels like one piece. The 15-year-old me would be overly gassed by this record – I wouldn’t have been able to imagine making all these genres, all these styles… And now I’m able to put it under the same name and it makes sense to people.” – Shy FX

To celebrate the release of Raggamuffin Soundtape, Shy FX will be hosting a one off culture night at Night Tales (London) on 15th March. Tickets available to purchase here: https://dice.fm/artist/shy-fx

Of the EP, Mark says, “Making Hummingbird One was such a special experience. I’ve never made music this quickly before in my life. It makes it even more special because these songs are me, right now, in this exact moment. I can say confidently say that these songs are exactly the way they want to be. I feel very connected to this universe after making this.”

With his music, Mark wants to make people feel every emotion possible. “I have never had more fun making music in my entire life. Music should make people feel good more than it makes them feel bad. Not necessarily ‘happy’ songs, but songs that make you feel better about life than when you started listening to it.”

So, I wrote this song as a last straw; as a ‘Hey, you’re not fooling anyone, we’re perfect for each other, and you should choose me.’”

Juice WRLD “Death Race For Love” Album

Chicago artist Juice WRLD has released his second studio album Death Race For Love, out now on Grade A Productions/ Interscope Records. Death Race For Love includes the single “Robbery,” released February 13, which debuted at #27 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and peaked at #2 on the Soundcloud chart. “Robbery” accumulated over 21 million global streams in its first week of release, and the accompanying Cole Bennet music video has over 26 million views. The album also features the single “Hear Me Calling,” which hit 6.7 million global streams within the first 3 days of its release.

Death Race for Love arrives as the follow-up to Goodbye & Good Riddance, Juice WRLD’s massively successful 2018 debut. Along with his double-platinum single “All Girls Are the Same,” the platinum-certified album features his biggest hit to date: the four-times-platinum “Lucid Dreams,” which earned over a billion total video and audio streams last year. In addition, Goodbye & Good Riddance includes Juice WRLD’s chart-climbing single “Armed and Dangerous.”

Juice WRLD will be performing at this year’s Coachella festival. He will then begin his headlining North American tour on April 25 at the PNE Forum in Vancouver, BC and wrap the tour June 8 at The Bomb Factory in Dallas, TX, with support from Ski Mask The Slump God and The Lyrical Lemonade All-Stars. Tickets are available here, along with a limited run of exclusive merch collaborations, with VLONE, Lyrical Lemonade, Half Evil, and Ransom.

Born Jarad Higgins, Juice WRLD got his start by shunning major streaming services and building a major following on Soundcloud. Within weeks of the February 2018 premiere of his video for “All Girls Are the Same,” he scored a deal with Interscope Records. Soon after the signing, Juice WRLD made his debut with Goodbye & Good Riddance and drew critical acclaim from the likes of the New York Times (who called it “one of the year’s most effective hip-hop releases”.) Juice WRLD also completed his sold-out debut headlining tour of North America in 2018 and is set to do the same again this year’s tour.
