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.

The 1975’s “TOOTIMETOOTIMETOOTIME”

The 1975 recently dropped their official music video for “TooTimeTooTimeTooTime.”

The English rock band’s video consists of various faces of just regular, average day people as they sing along and dance to the beat of the song. An unlimited amount of smiles are seen through everyone’s expressions in the entire video.

An even greater moment is when the lead singer, Matthew Healy, interacts with the guest stars as it personalizes the music video. He sings and dances with the people and one can definitely tell how much happier that makes the guests featured.

The song’s upbeat vibe has a lot of The 1975’s fan base claiming that their music is changing–moving away from their original type of music from the past. Whether this be a negative change or a positive one, one thing for sure is that the band is definitely trying something different and the world should be ready to listen.

Don’t forget to check out the music video for “TooTimeTooTimeTooTime” right here!

Rilès releases “!I’ll Be Back!” & Tour

NEW YORK, NY (June 22, 2018) — Today, buzzing French hip-hop artist Rilès releases his new single “!I’ll Be Back!

Get it HERE via Republic Records.

Driven by roaring horns and an airtight beat, the track showcases his off-kilter creativity and inimitable charisma. Over this unpredictable soundscape, he drops clever rhymes and a catchy chorus. It’s emblematic of his outlier approach and show-stopping style.

The song represents the culmination of a massive undertaking by Rilès. It all started in his bedroom—which doubles as a creative hive. He produces, writes, and records music in this tiny space (it’s also where you can find him often painting and crafting visual art as well). From that D.I.Y. headquarters, he made the decision to release one new song per week (52 in total) as part of his highly touted Rilèsundayz initiative. He kept the promise with a slew of songs on a weekly basis, and it finally concludes with the unveiling of his new major label single “!I’ll Be Back!”

“!I’ll Be Back!” arrives hot on the heels of his U.S. debut single “Should I, which has already cracked 4.8 million Spotify streams. Meanwhile, the song’s self-directed music video just crossed the 4-million-mark on YouTube within a month’s time.

Be on the lookout for more from Rilès soon as he is currently on his Summer Festival tour, the remaining tour dates can be found below.

Out of a tiny makeshift bedroom studio, Rilès became the talk of Europe and Africa. Between graduating from a French scientific high school and studying English literature at the University of Rouen, he began painting, producing, writing, recording, mixing, mastering, and engineering an undeniable underground catalog in this tiny space. His YouTube channel impressively exceeded the 100-million-mark on YouTube by dropping one song per week from September 2016 through September 2017. Additionally, he sold out every date of his first tour as “Brothers” cracked 11 million Spotify streams with “Thank God” eclipsing 9 million on the platform.

Bria Lee Debut Single “Purple Clouds”

NEW YORK, NY (June 22nd, 2018) – Today, New York-based vocalist and songwriter Bria Lee makes her debut with her song, “Purple Clouds”—listen and share here.

Backed by a fuzzed-out cackle of an old school phonograph, Bria Lee intoxicates and intrigues on her debut single, “Purple Clouds.” A puff of smoky soul strained through glitchy beats, her voice immediately seduces on confessions, “The liquor it keeps taking over” and “Lately, I be gettin’ so high I feel like a pilot.”

Of the track, Bria Lee says, “With ‘Purple Clouds,’ I tried to take my listeners to the place that I go when I’m writing and recording music, sort of like going to another planet. This song is special to me because it evokes the outer-body experience that I have when I’m making music that I love.”

Of the video, frontman Sam Getz says, “We wrote ‘Sanctuary’ about finding your peace and safe place in someone you love and being that comfort for someone else. The video has a feeling of uncertainty and discomfort with the ominous light following everyone around, but in the end they’re able to turn it around and return to their peace. It represents the craziness of the world we are living in right now and how important it is that we all find our sanctuary.”

SG LEWIS RELEASES ‘DUSK’

Songwriter and producer SG Lewis shares ‘Dusk’. The 6-track release is the first chapter of his three-part dedication to club music: ‘Dusk, Dark, Dawn’ and is available to buy and stream now via all partners.

Presented over three phases, ‘Dusk, Dark, Dawn’ maps the trajectory of one night out over the course of an album, matching genres and tempos different stages of that night, beginning at sun-down, both inside and outside the club. On ‘Dusk’, SG Lewis plays with disco, west coast hip-hop and 80’s electro references to start the story. “Disco has always had the association of the start of a night for me. I spent a lot a time as a resident DJ in clubs and disco was always that magnetic genre, always brought people onto the dancefloor.” Lead single ‘Aura’ blends SG’s signature warm, uptempo house with disco inflections. “There’s an undeniable beauty to this part of the night. The apprehension, excitement… ‘Dusk’ is the warm-up for the heavier, darker things to come.”

The 6-track release includes features with J Warner and Kartell (Roche Musique) and will be released in full on April 6th via Casablanca/Republic Records. The project will soon segue into ‘Dark’ – a phase dedicated to harder, post-midnight club music styles like techno and hip-hop – and finally ‘Dawn’, dedicated to euphoria and chillout. Throughout the week SG Lewis has been touring across the UK with his final sold out show happening tomorrow at London’s Electric Brixton where he’ll be bringing out some very special guests.
