Leven Kali Releases “I Get High When I Think About Us” Three-Song Pack

L.A.-based singer/songwriter/producer Leven Kali has released three new songs, “Mine,” “Thursday,” and “Too High” featuring fellow West Coast artists Buddy and Na’Kel. The tracks, written and co-produced by Leven himself, showcase his ability to display modern romance as a colorful, funk-inspired, and dreamy entity. Leven is due to release his debut full length project in the spring of 2019 on Palm Studios/ Interscope Records. A lyric video for “Thursday” is also out today, directed by Palm Studios.

The new tracks come as a follow up to Leven’s October double-single pack, NunWrong With a Lil’ Good Lovin’, which Billboard said “encompass lush, mellow R&B vibes that resemble Anderson Paak’s surreal sounds and the pop elements of Bruno Mars.” This fall, Leven joined Snoh Aalegra on the west coast leg of her tour.

Leven dropped his acclaimed single “Do U Wrong” ft. Syd back in January. Produced by Zack Sekoff (Vince Staples, Thundercat), the track features a writing contribution from Swedish singer/songwriter Snoh Aalegra. In its glowing review of “Do U Wrong,” Pitchfork stated that Leven “is out to write the next episode of California hip-hop: buttery neo-soul vocalism growling electric guitar, and G-funk thumo.” Leven is scheduled to release his full-length project in 2019.

CO-HEADLINING U.S. TOUR:

BEBE & BASSY TOUR 2017 KICKS OFF OCTOBER 16

                                                                                                     

Bay Area singer-songwriter Marc E. Bassy has released his debut album, Gossip Columns, via Republic Records today. Listen HERE. The album features star-studded assists from Kehlani, KYLE, YG, Bobby Brackins, Hailee Steinfeld, Thundercat and G-EAZY (including their platinum-certified song “You and Me”). Earlier this summer Bassy launched the first single and remix from his new body of work with “Plot Twist” f/ KYLE and “Plot Twist (Remix f/ Hailee Steinfeld),” which have garnered a combined 16M+ Spotify streams. “So Simple” f/ G-EAZY has already racked up over 1M+ Spotify streams in merely a couple weeks.

While Bassy has been a much buzzed-about singer/songwriter since the release of 2016’s Groovy People EP, Gossip Columns further showcases Bassy’s recognizable crooning, amplifies his song-crafting capabilities and takes the listener on a themed-journey into his personal world. “I chose this album title because these tracks are essentially sensationalized stories from my personal life, experience and observation,” says Bassy. “I have always dug into these stories as sources for inspiration, and being based in the muck and mire of Los Angeles, a tabloid-ish picture is what I have painted within this album.” Catch Bassy reveal more about the songs on Gossip Coumns and air some of the new tracks this weekend on Beats 1’s Noisey Radio (Saturday at 9amEST/6amPST & Sunday 9pmEST/6pmPST).
