PRESS HERE To Listen To “Disappear”
London based bedroom-pop songwriter Beabadoobee has released her sophomore EP, Loveworm, on Dirty Hit Records. Billboard, who released a track by track of Loveworm, highlighted Bea Kristi’s “languid vocals, pointed songwriting chops and jangly, grunge-inspired sound” on the new EP, which you can PRESS HERE to stream.
“This EP Loveworm was inspired by all the music I listened to during a hard time in my life,” Bea told Pigeons and Planes who named her one of the Best New Artists for April. “It helped me forget about everything. From The Moldy Peaches to Pavement to Daniel Johnston, music was always a means of escapism for me. I wanted to make songs that could belong to one of my playlists. Something people can dance and cry to. The songs on Loveworm pretty much sum up what I was feeling at the time… love is hard, complicated and I’m pretty fragile. Sometimes it’s hard to balance that with school and music but I guess writing the songs for the EP helped me a whole lot. And I hope it helps some people out too.”
Born in Manilla and raised in London, Bea Kristi began recording music as Beabadoobee in 2017. Her first track, “Coffee” gathered hundreds of thousands of streams in a matter of days, through a fan-uploaded video. Since then, her songs have amassed millions of streams between her own self-released recordings and her debut EP, Patched Up (released via Dirty Hit) which features “If You Want To” and “Dance With Me“, and has received support from Noisey, Nylon, The Fader, Bustle and The Guardian, amongst others with NME already crowning her as one of their 100 essential artists to watch in 2019.

Amidst a tumultuous climate, all it takes is one minute to speak up and make a change he proves that with the new body of work.
Check out the full tracklisting below.
Give Katori Walker 1 minute of your time, and he’ll undoubtedly leave a lasting impression.
Rap music can affect more than the culture; it has the power to change the world. Just ask Katori Walker. He picked up a mic with a purpose in 2017. Clocking in at barely 10 minutes, his independent five-song Ignorance EP offered a powerful portrait of a gang-related gun violence following the murder of his brother Ormoni. The video Ormoni generated 4.2 million views as it surpassed 1 million Spotify streams in addition to being featured in Eminem’s Untouchable lyric video. It topped Spotify’s Most Necessary Playlist for four weeks in a row. Watch him make a difference in hip-hop and the world.
The Young Stoner Life signee just released his mixtape, Trapped On Cleveland 2 this past summer and sparked attention with records like “Blicky Blicky” and “Fetish” featuring Young Thug. He was also featured on the Young Stoner Life’s 2018 compilation mixtape, Slime Language. Recently, Keed partnered with Lil Uzi Vert and Lil Gotit for their record, “Heavy Metal.” Keed’s sound has been recognized by Pitchfork, Complex, The Fader, Hypebeast, Highsnobiety, Hot New Hip-Hop, Hip-Hop Wired, and more.
Of the song, Bassy says “‘Love Her Too’ was that end of the session jam that turned into a real song—it was me waking the guys up and convincing them this last jam of the day was something special.” He continues, “Postmodern Depression is me battling with culture. It’s about trying to grow up in a scene that glorifies the opposite of what it is to be a wholesome individual. It’s about me always coming back to music and being forever saved by songwriting.”
Singer, songwriter and producer Marc E. Bassy made waves with his critically acclaimed 2016 debut Groovy People EP. Among a tracklisting of hits such as “Morning” and “Dirty Water,” it vaulted “You & Me” [feat. G-Eazy] onto the Billboard Hot 100 as the track generated 260 million-plus Spotify streams and achieved a platinum certification from the RIAA within two years. Hot on its heels, he dropped his first full-length, Gossip Columns, and landed yet another smash in the form of “Plot Twist” featuring Kyle. In the album’s wake, he co-headlined the Bebe & Bassy Tour alongside Bebe Rexha and launched his Gossip Columns Tour, selling out venues coast to coast. Along the way, the artist received widespread praise from Billboard, Complex, Hypebeast, XXL, Hot New Hip Hop, The FADER, Spin and many more. Positioned for pop supremacy with his forthcoming second full-length set for 2019, Bassy’s rise to the top is just beginning.
