D.C.’s Beau Young Prince Drops New Single and Video

Washington, DC rapper Beau Young Prince, whose cool demeanor leveled his hometown audience at last weekend’s Trillectro Festival, has released “Price– the hotly awaited follow-up to his debut single “Kill Moe.”

His first EP, Groovy Land will be released on October 5th via Def Jam Recordings and includes a remix of “Kill Moe” featuring Shy Glizzy.

About the Artist..

Beau Young Prince, a self-described “Southside kid with a North Side education” bred in urban Southeast DC, attended one of the highest ranked private schools in the Northern part of the city.  “I was given a really unique experience,” he speaks of that duality.  “I have the ability to combine both worlds where most people can’t.”

BYP’s training on classical and jazz upright bass was tempered by an eclectic playlist of sounds at home, from Marvin Gaye and Curtis Mayfield to A Tribe Called Quest and André 3000, from Lenny Kravitz and Bad Brains to DC’s legendary Go-Go scene.  As a teen he hit local talent shows, open mics, and rap battles, even burning CDs that he sold on the street.  A graduate of Guilford College in Greensboro, NC, BYP kept the music going, hitting the Soundcloud wave early on, and performing three years in a row at the SXSW Music Conference.

In 2016, Beau Young Prince grabbed over a million streams with “Half & Half Tea” (Top 50 Viral U.S. Spotify chart, and Spotify Most Necessary playlist), off his critically acclaimed project Until Then, produced by longtime friend, New York City producer Yalamusiq.  A year later, BYP connected with French producer YMNO for the Young Futura project.  BYP’s subsequent release of his Sunset Blvd EP ensured that he was destined for greatness. Def Jam A&R soon caught the vibe as the DC star finally won his seat at the table.

Designer to Watch: Pierre Garroudi

London Fashion Week 5519 saw the arrival of Pierre Garroudi’s Spectacular Fashion Show: a high-octacaine, glamorous, and unique mardi gras of style, creativity, and fun.

On Sunday the 16th of September at 9 PM, The Strand Palace Hotel played host to Garroudi’s riot of colour and exuberance, seeing his vision come to life on the catwalk. Distinctiveness made up the foundation of this show with a diverse cast of models, each dressed and styles uniquely, shunning the industry standard of uniformity.
“Outrageousness is in, get ready and dress up!” is the way designer Pierre Garroudi explained his show made up of 50 looks in total. Key looks from the show included a baby pink, lace, “show girl” outfit, complete with tulle boa, with the model using a children’s doll to cover her modesty, a ringmaster-esque outfit which saw hot-pants teamed with a copped-striped jacket and a show stopping head piece topped with a golden deer to DEMAND attention.

Other notable outfits included a cutesy ‘holiday’ look comprised of a ditsy floral mini-dress with peach sequin detailing matched with an oversized straw sunhat and completed with a pair of sky-high studded stiletto Mary-Janes. Perhaps one of the most eccentric of al the looks was dominated by a hat made from a child’s doll towering on the model’s head. This was matched with a  shoe necklace and belts tied around her ankles, making for a truly eclectric outfit which left Garroudi’s audience curious about his inspiration as well as desperate for an encore of his ‘circus of style.’

Each outfit was styled with one of Garroudi’s famous leather handbags, an accessory the designer is well known and loved for. Pink, blue and gold acted as the main color pallet, but certainly didn’t limit his use of other shades. Hair and make-up only added to the beautiful chaos of Garroudi’s fashion performances taking theatrical make-up to new levels , leaving any sign of minimalism truly outside the doors of the hotel.

Want to get to know the designer?

Now based in London, Pierre Garroudi was founded in New York City 1993. Garroudi is formerly known for mastering the techniques of draping and his attention to fabrication, shape, and detail. His design inspirations derived from futuristic elements experimenting with new shapes and fabric manipulations–appealing to those who are interested in the aesthetics of a futuristic world. With 12 collections, Pierre Garroudi has showcased at fashion weeks in New York, Paris, and London. His international experience enabled him to become more creative and original.

Mondo Cozmo’s ‘Your Motherfucker’ Lyric Video feat. Rose Villain

Just recently, Mondo Cozmo releases “Your Motherfucker” lyric video through Republic Records. The visual features Rose Villain and you can watch it here.

“‘Your Motherfucker’ is the best love song I’ve ever written. Musically, it’s probably the furthest I’ve ever gone out of my comfort zone but maybe that’s why I love it so much. We needed a visual to bring it home, to be as striking as the lyrical content, it was a visual that only Rose could bring. I was honored to have her be a part of this,” says Cozmo.

In support of his recent Your Motherfucker EP, Cozmo will be on tour this fall with The Revivalists. For more information on dates and ticket prices, click here.

Ari Lennox’s “Whipped Cream”

Singer Ari Lennox releases her music video for “Whipped Cream” and it is EVERYTHING.

As Ari croons over unrequited love, she is whisked away by “vivid dreams” of an old beau which leaves us all to ponder if these are true meanings or figments of her imagination.

Director Ryan Doubiago and producer Darius Turbak embrace Ari’s essence beautifully; capturing her sultry appeal and affinity for classic soul to produce a visual which is timeless with a touch of nostalgia.

Watch the video here!

The Washington D.C. native dropped her debut EP, PHO, in late 2016. PHO showcased Ari’s immense talent while highlighting her position as the only female and sole vocalist of her crew.

In 2017, Ari joined J. Cole on his 4 Your Eyez Only Tour. She is slated to perform alongside her labelmates at the Dreamville Festival September 15th in Raleigh, NC.

WELLES – “Rock N Roll”

WELLES video for “Rock N Roll” is a nostalgic, animated trip premiering via JUXTAPOZ.

WATCH + SHARE NOW

  • Debut LP, “Red Trees and White Trashes,” available via 300 Entertainment
  • Touring with Dead Sara this September/October
  • Praise from NPR, Pigeons and Planes, NYLON, Consequence of Sound, Paste Magazine and more.

Via Juxtapoz: Take a step inside the world of 23 year old musician, Welles in the psychedelic video for his track, “Rock N Roll”. A song that in Jesse Wells’ words is “a tune in the style, in reverence to, and for the sake of rock n’ roll.”

Having just released his debut record, “Red Trees and White Trashes,” with his unique and jarringly emotive vocal stylings that might sound something along the lines of Kurt Cobain collaborating with Zeppelin, Welles is continuing where the rock greats before him left off.

It comes as no surprise then, that the video for “Rock N Roll” is a nostalgic, animated trip. Created by Diego Huacuja from Basa Estudio out of Mexico City, the visual artist wanted to “visually communicate the personality and vibe of the song,” noting how there’s a “heavy rock and roll tone mixed with a certain indifference and absurdness within the lyrics that I was really drawn to.”

Huacuja continues – “All of the elements and characters represent the lyrics at that moment of the song as well as how I think Jesse would imagine and draw those lyrics. Like the “square” parents. We all know parents are (sometimes) square. The fictional character of Jesse just wants to be free, hang out everywhere, and enjoy the moment.”

“The same happens with the style of illustration. We decided to represent that freedom in the strokes, shapes, colors and adding a fanzine texture which I personally love and think really fits great with the whole video. The artwork has no rules, no walls or floors, we just wanted to create a rad animation video for this cool song.”

Wells is already writing hooks that any of his heroes would envy… The sound on this album is huge, putting Welles in the same league as the smart bands reviving rock’s mainstream… “Red Trees and White Trashes” has the heft and complexity to likely earn a few Grammy nominations.” – NPR
