Monsieur Job Latest Album BASS PA$$I

Blending Latin Grooves with Pumping Electronica, The LP and Its Follow Up Remixes Album Are Bringing Familiar Blend of Urban Beats Mixed with New World Dance Grooves to New Heights with Lead Single & Video

“Chow Chow Eyyy Pow Pow” Feat. No Mercy

Bogota, Colombia (May, 2018) — With their imminent debut on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart this week, South American based Latin/Electronica group Monsieur Job are taking worldwide radio charts by storm with the release of their Single and Video “Chow Chow Eyyy Pow Pow” Feat. No Mercy off their latest BASS PA$$I album and remixes release BASS PA$$I 2 which dropped just last week via Basswalk Latino and Musik and Film!

WATCH: Monsieur Job feat. No Mercy – Chow Chow Eyyy Pow Pow (Official Video)

For their debut release, Monsieur Job’s fuse diverse talents by inviting artists such as; Marty of No Mercy, Kiño, Luis Carlos Toro, Alejandro Gomes Caceres, Sarah Sophia, Elemece, Thiago, Christian Gimenez, Vojke Djans, Diego Caceres, Oscar Moncada, Denis Dzigal, Cholo, Vick D, Mc Lions & Bingi, Kid Corrupt, Dave Floyd, Nacho Alvarez, Pablo Bendov and Aldo Cadiz therefore mixing a variation of many styles recreating genres like Reggaetón Electrónico, Dancehall, Reggae, Dub, Tropical House, Rock, Chill Out, Rap, Trap, Hip Hop, Worship, and Son Montuno involving Afro Cuban and African Succu rhythms.

“It makes some demands of the listener, but none they won’t be happy to oblige. The demands are centered on how artfully ‘Chow Chow eyyy Pow Pow’ upends expectations for pop music in this vein thanks to its strong musical pedigree and vocal presentation. The performance is unfailingly accessible, but there’s a real sophistication present in the song as well.The three and a half minute radio edit of this initial offering from the quartet is augmented by the presence of guest star Martin Cintron, lead singer for the band No Mercy, and the Bronx born vocalist is the added cherry on top of what will likely prove one of 2018’s more delectable musical confections” – No Depression

Monsieur job is an eclectic band formed by Toby Holguin from Cali, Colombia; Stan Kolev from Sofia, Bulgaria; Charlie Illera from Barranquilla, Colombia; and Leo Jaramillo from Bogota, Colombia.

All coming as live band performers, Toby, Stan, and Charlie also regularly spin records as DJs for different pools and venues around the world. Monsieur Job was born out of Toby’s idea to start doing Urban Music along with Chill Out and Electronic Music, which they were making for the album “Bass Passi.” They all agreed and started dropping broken beats with a more festive, shaky, groovy Caribbean Latin flavor resulting in Monsieur Job, an international exclusive mash up of world talents.

The album “BASS PA$$I” album was recorded in Bogota and Miami at Basswalk Studios, Outta Limits Studios in Miami, and Barba Studios in Belgrade and mastered at Sterling Studios, New York.

Who Is She, Meet Julia Michaels, A Gifted, Multitalented Artist Killing the Charts With Her Unique Sound And Voice

Since emerging in 2015, JULIA has transformed pop not only from behind-the-scenes as a songwriter whose credits span everyone from Justin Bieber to Selena Gomez, but in the spotlight as a solo artist. Her rapid rise can be attributed to identifiable honesty in every lyric.Within just a year since arrival, she garnered 2018 GRAMMY® nominations in the categories of “Best New Artist” and “Song of the Year” for “Issues.” That honesty is also why “Issues” received a triple-platinum certification from the RIAA, cracked 1 billion global streams and consumption of 10 million, became “the top-selling debut single by any artist in 2017,” and placed on Variety’s “30 Most Consumed Songs of 2017” as the only solo female contribution. It’s why the industry recognized her with nominations everywhere from American Music Awards,Billboard Music Awards, Teen Choice Awards and RDMA’s to the MTV VMAS and MTV EMAS.

Extending and expanding her influence, she traffics at the forefront of numerous genres. She lent her voice to Clean Bandit’s international hit “I Miss You,” which became her first Top 10 entry on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Dance Songs chart. Right now, she also features on Keith Urban’s latest single “Coming Home” and rising artist Noah Kahan’s single “Hurt Somebody.” Other recent collaborations include a duet and writing credits on Shawn Mendes’ upcoming album, songs on Christina Aguilera’s upcoming album, a co-writing credit for Janelle Monàe’s latest “Make Me Feel,” Anne-Marie’s “2002,”and a sample of her vocals on Migos’ “Gang Gang.”Moreover, she’s written on recent albums from P!nk, Maroon 5, and Jessie Ware.

Julia continues to shine on stage as well. Following sold out shows alongside Shawn Mendes and Niall Horan overseas, she embarks on her first official U.S tour, joining Maroon 5 for the Red Pill Blues Tour beginning this June.

Prior to making her debut as a solo artist, JULIA MICHAELS became one of pop music’s most in-demand songwriters, co-writing a string of Billboard Hot 100 hits alongside Justin Tranter including smashes like Justin Bieber’s “Sorry,” Nick Jonas ft. Tove Lo “Close,” Selena Gomez’s“Good for You” [feat. A$AP Rocky] & “Hands To Myself,” Hailee Steinfeld “Love Myself,” Britney Spears “Slumber Party,” Gwen Stefani’s “Used To Love You,” and Linkin Park’s “Heavy,” Ed Sheeran’s “Dive,” John Legend’s “Surefire,” with titles on recent album releases from P!nk, Maroon 5, Jessie Ware, Keith Urban, Years & Years and more. The cumulative worldwide stream count for songs MICHAELS has co-written exceeds 10 billion to date. As a songwriter, she has co-written eighteen titles that have charted on the Billboard Hot 100, eleven of which have hit the Top 40, including “Issues.”

NAV’s Highly Anticipated Debut Album “Reckless” Out Now!

The wait is over! GRAMMY® Award-nominated platinum-certified Toronto rapper and producer NAV unleashes his full-length debut album, Reckless [XO/Republic Records], at all digital retailers today. Get it HERE.

Among a stacked tracklisting, he preceded the release with the release of “Freshman List. Driven by hypnotic piano, airy production, and his inimitable flow, it quickly churned out 14 million-plus Spotify streams in just a month’s time. Meanwhile, the first single “Wanted You” [feat. Lil Uzi Vert] has already surpassed 110 million Spotify streams.

Elsewhere on the record, “Reckless (Intro)” showcases his impenetrable bars, while “Faith” [feat. Quavo] has “summer smash” written all over it as NAV and the Migos leader turn up. “Champion” [feat. Travis Scott] storms out of the gate with an arena-size hook and warbling melodies. Check out the full tracklisting below.

Known for high energy shows, NAV’s first headlining tour is well underway, playing to sold out venues across North America. The remaining dates are below.

NAV has quietly arrived as one of rap’s most innovative and infectious voices. Early last year, he unveiled his self-titled RIAA certified platinum mixtape NAV and joined forces with powerhouse producer Metro Boomin for the collaborative album, Perfect Timing. Meanwhile, 2016 saw him not only co-produce the GRAMMY Award-nominated “Back To Back” for Drake, but he also featured on and produced the platinum-selling “beibs in the trap” for Travi$ Scott’s blockbuster Birds In the Trap Sing McKnight. A streaming phenomenon, he regularly averages over 7.6 million monthly listeners on Spotify making him one of the top most-listened-to artists worldwide. In addition to selling out solo shows coast to coast, he also joined The Weeknd for The Starboy Tour. This tastemaker favorite has also received praise from Rolling Stone, ComplexBillboard, and The Fader and is currently gearing up to release his debut album Reckless.

‪Nine Inch Nails Physical World Presale Events

LISTENING STATIONS DEBUTED TWO ADDITIONAL SONGS FROM 

BAD WITCH, OUT JUNE 22

COLD AND BLACK AND INFINITE NORTH AMERICA 2018 TOUR 

STARTS SEPTEMBER 13

@nineinchnails Wow. NIN fans are the fucking best. Humbled by the massive turnout today. THANK YOU for trying something different with us. We cannot wait to see you in the fall. 

Tens of thousands of people descended on venues across North America as Nine Inch Nails tried a different approach to getting tour tickets directly into the hands of their fans. Taking place in fourteen cities, fans who waited in line at The Physical World presale events had first shot at the best seats for COLD AND BLACK AND INFINITE NORTH AMERICA 2018. 

Lines were long at The Physical World presales often wrapping multiple times around city blocks but fans made the most of their time as they connected with other like-minded individuals. A locked box in each city contained a NIN listening station playing 2 new songs at loud volume on a loop, giving Ahead of Ourselves and Play the Goddamned Part their world debut.

Limited edition presale t-shirts and lithographs, customized for each venue, were available to the fans who made the effort to show up. Local businesses got involved, with Alamo Drafthouse in Dallas creating a custom Nine Inch Nails menu for the day and Chicago coffee roaster Dark Matter delivering a custom blend to the throng of fans outside the Aragon Ballroom. The events had their challenges, and venue and promoter staff worked closely with the band to resolve issues as they came up.

Trent Reznor says:

We’re playing a limited amount of shows in a more intimate setting this time around, and we thought we’d try something different regarding ticketing. Our goals wasn’t simply to combat scalping and resellers, but to turn the process into a communal activity. Although not without hiccups (we underestimated the turnout – Jesus!), it was incredibly rewarding to see actual fans getting great seats at face value and experience something together. We are very much looking forward to the shows – thank you as always for your support! #NINOnTour

@rogershepard 8 hours later, Row 4 for #NINONTOUR #Boston – humanity restored

@LTamasfi This #ninontour #nineinchnails event was amazing! We hang out all night, out tickets that came with a beautiful display envelope, I picked up a pre-sale limited edition lithograph, an event only t shirt, and got to listen to 2 unreleased tracks from the incoming album!

@blackcelebrantt You can only imagine the success we felt after waiting 6 hours. Last batch of VIP tickets in hand!

@earlypaintbrush Itߣs like the 90s but with less hair and more phones

@YogiJoshKenobi Aaaaaannnddd we got tix!!! waited in line for 2 hours, but worth it!haha and no fees too!!!

@trent_reznorߣs sinister plan succeeded after all

@StuntmanSeth We met some cool folks in line. And the staff was providing drinks and stuff. Much better than fighting with bots online getting nosebleeds

Instagram user Jennaxarkansas: Totally worth all of this. 4th row.

@LexiNicole85 Thank you @nineinchnails @trent_reznor for giving us an experience today. I had human interactions and met some awesome people! From the merch table to listening area of album. Everyone kept talking about how it reminded them of good ole days

@NannyNouvelle Scalper showed up, bought $500 in tix. Turned around and tried to sell GA $300 a ticket. Got hauled off immediately.

Reddit user TheJVR: Like most of you, I went to the venue nervous; not knowing what to expect, not knowing if I’d get tickets for sure…We were there for 4 1/2 hours, but the time flew by. I’d been planning to see this show alone (my wife isn’t interested), but me and two of the other guys ended up buying seats next each other for the same night (the seats in the section I wanted!). I’m no longer going alone. It’s my first show, so I’m excited to have company.

Instagram user Girlswannabeher: After 10 hours of waiting, standing in the rain and having endless conversations about this music and the gift if has brought to so many, these are mine. It was an incredible day to talk to so many strangers learn about their lives and share pieces of mine. Many of these people I would have never crossed paths with otherwise. The human experience is alive and well, the requirement isnߣt money or status, it is a desire to participate.

@wolves_lower: Yo Trent Reznor pulled the biggest trick of all and actually forced me to talk to total strangers.

A Jovial Jashn

Superheroes walking the corridors, live art performances, a car show, and a DJ night. What sounds like a unforgettable music festival was the star attraction of the Dubai International Academic City where its annual event titled Jashn was celebrated. Literally translating to ‘celebration’, JASHN 2018 stepped up to the occasion by centering on a theme that seemed to be at the tip of everyone’s tongue-comic books and movies. The Dubai Campus of BITS Pilani raised the bar once again by setting up one of the most elaborate stages in the region inviting the best to showcase their skills. And with the atmosphere of Marvel and DC to drive the festivities, the event proved to be a great crowd-puller for students and teens. The inaugural ceremony occurred on the 16th of April and was marked by a musical evening by the musicians of the campus followed by a stage play round and a fashion show by the group called Drape. To conclude the evening in a round of laughter and splits, popular Indian comic Biswa Kalyan took to the stage and left the audience wanting for more.

The second day for was an energetic extension with further competitions defined by quizzes, musicals, musical battles and a lot more. The next day attracted a great crowd for the detective themed scavenge hunt titled ‘CSI’ followed by instrumental competitions, dancing doubles, a fashion show round and a guest performance by the artist Rooh. All the while, the crowd outside were being entertained by a high octane road show featuring the best cars. But the level had to be raised further as the campus closed the event with a awe-inspiring round of competitions attracting students with an artistic touch with a solo stage play round, a poetry slam competition, a group dance show off and finally a DJ performance by the duo Sunburn- Siana Caherine and Zephyrtone.

JASHN 2018 La Comic Fiesta had achieved the same mass appeal of the very comic brands it endorsed and plans on scaling new heights with the coming years.

NEW YORK, NY (May 21, 2018) — Today, Chloe Kohanski releases her brand new single “Come This Far” produced by MXM. Get it HERE via Republic Records.

Chloe speaks passionately to the song’s message of empowerment:

‘Come This Far’ is for anyone who has faced adversity. For anyone who has come from nothing… struggled and fought for their voice to be heard. For anyone who has manifested their own path and created their own destiny. I want anyone who hears this song to experience two minutes and fifty-seven seconds of bold faced encouragement to achieve every single one of their wildest dreams and then some.”

From the time she was a young girl, Chloe always wanted to pursue music. The road wasn’t easy. Early on she fronted several local bands but nothing ever seemed to stick. Chloe took a leap faith and auditioned for “The Voice,” season 13. Since winning the show, it has been a nonstop whirlwind. Currently, Chloe is in the studio working on her debut release. The new music will showcase her distinctly raspy vocal style and pay tribute to her rock and roll heroes. Stay tuned for new music via Republic Records soon.

When we met Preme in Las Vegas, he showed us the vocals he and Post had been working on and it seemed like the perfect opportunity to collaborate. I’m really excited to put this out for you all to hear. We’ve definitely created a summer anthem with this one.”

Tiësto continues to bring his music to fans worldwide by  headlining more than 40 festivals in 2018 and around the globe – from Dubai and China to Mexico, Europe, and the United States.

ALEX DA KID RELEASES NEW SINGLE “GO”

FEATURING H.E.R. & RAPSODY, AN ARTIST DISCOVERED WITH THE HELP OF AI

THE FIRST IN A SERIES OF SINGLES TO BE RELEASED SOON

NEW YORK, NY (May 18, 2018) — Continuing a tradition of blazing trails and breaking ground, Emmy® and GRAMMY® Award-winning music producer, songwriter, and KIDinaKORNER C.E.O./Founder Alex Da Kidmakes history once again.

In partnership with IBM and Spotify, Alex’s latest single, entitled “Go,” features an artist discovered with the help of IBM’s AI technology, Watson.

Get the song HERE via Republic Records.

The creation of “Go” sets a new standard for the music industry at large. To identify the perfect artist for his collaboration—rather than employ century-old A&R methods or spend countless hours casing the internet for new voices—Alex enlisted the help of IBM Watson. The technology allowed Alex to work smarter and more efficiently to uncover talent, changing the concept of A&R forever.

Initially, critically acclaimed songstress H.E.R. jumped at the chance to join forces with Alex. With those two key pieces in place, IBM proved instrumental in finding the song’s missing piece.

IBM Developer, Joshua Carr, worked closely with Alex to gain insight into his vision and sensibility to drive discovery. Carr created a custom Watson solution to aid Alex’s search. A technology and entertainment industry first, Watson learned the language of music from the producer’s natural speech.

Based on a subset of Spotify data, provided by Tim Ganss of Spotify Music Intelligence, Watson pored over enormous amounts of unstructured data like articles, social media, interviews and fan sentiment to help Alex uncover Rapsody as the best artist for his new track. From the tiny town of Snow Hill, North Carolina, Rapsody is known for her intricate rhyme patterns, metaphors, and wordplay.

Now, the vibrant and vital “Go” comes to life as an organic union between Alex, H.E.R., Rapsody, and the Watson Artist Discovery Tool and a game-changing moment.

This is the first in the series of numerous singles to be released soon. Stay tuned for more very soon.
