“Valee is a quiet rapper making a lot of noise.” ——RollingStone

“Valee’s innovative style makes it impossible to predict what might come next.”  ——-Pitchfork

“Valee doesn’t sound like anything happening in Chicago hip-hop right now.” ——-Noisey

ABOUT VALEE:

In an era when aspiring public figures broadcast constantly in an effort to maximize their brand value, Valee’s coolly laconic stands apart. With short songs and a soft-spoken style, his unpredictable raps sketch subjects with a droll eye for detail over a bass-heavy canvas. This is trap music for the connoisseur, for fans of clever lyrics and effortless style. Valee grew up on Chicago’s South Side. When he received toys as a child, he would break them apart to figure out how they worked, a method he applies to his own process with music today:  “Sometimes I rap and cut and copy and paste and move parts around and it changes the whole song, for the better.” His music career began when, intent on buying a gaming system, he stopped at Guitar Center instead. “I just wanted to make beats better than what I hear on my mixtapes or on the radio, and I wanted to rap on it. I wasn’t thinking about anyone else at all.” His counterintuitive approach across five mixtapes and his G.O.O.D. Music debut EP, GOOD job, You Found Me, has captured the ears of artists and music aficionados alike, drawn to his unorthodox approach.

Evie Irie “5 Weeks In LA” EP

Sixteen-year-old Sydney-born singer/songwriter Evie Irie unveils her debut EP, 5 Weeks In LA, today.

Listen HERE via Republic Records.

The five-song collection threads together a tale of personal emotions and evocative stories over an unpredictable sonic backdrop. She introduces the project with the undeniable opener “Bitter.” Off-kilter production punctuated by handclaps, glitchy electronics, and strains of guitar gives way to a hypnotic hook as she encourages, “Try not to get bitter.”

Watch the video for “Bitter” HERE

Of the track, she comments, “I’m singing to myself, because in the song I’m the reason why I’m being bitter, because I’m judging myself and I’m thinking everyone is judging me—when really I’m my own enemy. The song is me escaping that mindset.”

Hailing from just outside Sydney, Australia, Evie Irie is quietly emerging as something of an alternative soul-pop wunderkind at just 16-years-old. Grabbing a guitar, she penned fully realized pop anthems rooted in the experiences of her sisters and their friends. With her family supporting, she moved to Nashville and attracted the attention of top songwriters and tastemakers at open mics and performances. As the title reflects, she wrote and recorded 5 Weeks In LA over a 5 week trip to Los Angeles that also landed her a record deal with Republic Records.

ROCKETMAN: Music From The Motion Picture

Interscope Records will release ROCKETMAN: Music From The Motion Picture. The set sees celebrated producer and composer Giles Martin re-interpreting and re-imagining Elton John’s iconic hits, tailoring the music specifically to support the narrative of Paramount Pictures’ upcoming major motion picture, ROCKETMAN, with a truly show stopping vocal performance from lead actor Taron Egerton.   The first track from the album, “Rocket Man,” was Zane Lowe’s World Record today on Apple Music’s Beats 1. Fans can pre-order ROCKETMAN: Music From The Motion Picture now and receive “Rocket Man” instantly.  The video for “Rocket Man” premiered today on Good Morning America.  Watch the video HERE.

Elton John says: “It was so important that the music I composed and recorded had to be sung by Taron. I wanted his interpretation of me, through Bernie’s lyrics & my music – not just acting. I left Taron in the hands of Giles Martin, who I trusted implicitly because he’s brilliant. I didn’t want to be in Taron’s shadows, watching over the process, I trusted them to do what they needed to do, artistically, and listening back I’ve been astonished with the results. Getting the music right was the most important thing, as the songs in the film are integral to the story.”

“The beauty of having Elton involved with the film is we’ve been able to work with him to see how far we can take these classic songs” says Taron Egerton. “Giles Martin has impeccable taste and massive skills to bring the songs to a place where they are faithful and daring as well.”

 

“The great thing about Elton is that he is a true artist and he wants people to expand on his work – he wants interpretations done, it’s refreshing for him, says Giles Martin.  “We had scope to play around with things and think how we address the songs. The songs are the story of the movie, the heartbeat of what happens. Once the songs start a whole world opens up. In Taron I’ve never known a singer who dedicates himself so much to the process. I don’t think anyone else could have played Elton.”

Tasked with taking Elton’s unparalleled back catalogue and reimagining it to fit the film’s narrative, soundtrack producer Martin worked closely with the filmmakers, supervising all the music for the production and pulling a vocal masterclass from Egerton in the studio. From transforming Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting’ into an epic ensemble piece, to morphing ‘I Want Love’ into a heart-breaking moment of conflict around little Reggie’s family meal, each track has been sculpted to form a unique part of the narrative of this most incredible of stories. The soundtrack also contains a brand-new Elton John and Bernie Taupincomposition ‘(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again’ performed by Elton and Taron Egerton. ROCKETMAN: Music From The Motion Picture is produced by Giles Martin (except “(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again” is co-produced by Giles Martin and Greg Kurstin)and was recorded between 2017 and 2019 at London’s legendary Abbey Road Studios. Executive Album Producers are Elton John, David Furnish, Matthew Vaughan and Dexter Fletcher.

ROCKETMAN: Music From The Motion Picture will come in a standard and deluxe version of the album and is available for pre-order now at http://smarturl.it/RocketmanSoundtrack A Target CD version will feature two exclusive tracks – “Don’t Let The Sun Go Down In Me” (Taron only) and “Breakin’ Down The Walls If Heartache”.   Pre-order the Target cd starting May 2 at Target stores or online at Target.com.  

 

Paramount Pictures presents, in association with New Republic Pictures, A Marv Films/Rocket Pictures production ROCKETMAN; an epic musical fantasy about the incredible human story of Elton John’s breakthrough years. The film follows the fantastical journey of transformation from shy piano prodigy Reginald Dwight into international superstar Elton John. This inspirational story – set to Elton John’s most beloved songs and performed by star Taron Egerton – tells the universally relatable story of how a small-town boy became one of the most iconic figures in pop culture. ROCKETMAN also stars Jamie Bell as Elton’s longtime lyricist and writing partner Bernie Taupin, Richard Madden as Elton’s first manager, John Reid, and Bryce Dallas Howard as Elton’s mother Sheila Farebrother. ROCKETMAN was directed by Dexter Fletcher, written by Lee Hall and produced by Matthew Vaughn, David Furnish, Adam Bohling and David Reid, ROCKETMAN will open on the U.S. on May 31.

Kate Tempest “Firesmoke”

Today, critically acclaimed British spoken word artist, rapper, poet, novelist and playwright Kate Tempest returns with her new song “Firesmoke”—listen HERE! Tempest also announces her third studio album, The Book of Traps and Lessons, is set to be released on June 14 via American Recordings/Republic Records. The album is available now for pre-order HERE.
 
Of “Firesmoke,” Kate says, “I think of the song like a cleansing moment in the wider context of the record, in the same way that a relationship can be a cleansing moment in the wider context of a life. A kind of a turning point. I wrote it for my woman. Inspired by her and everything that falling in love with her has taught me.”
 
Consequence of Sound, who spoke to Kate about the origins of “Firesmoke,” praises the track saying, “The slow, soulful track sounds how wrapping a soft feather down comforter around yourself and a lover feels: comfortable, quiet, and eternal.”
 
The highly anticipated album was crafted with Rick Rubin and Dan Carey over the course of the past five years. It follows Tempest’s previous releases, 2014’s Everybody Down and 2016’s Let Them Eat Chaos, both of which were shortlisted for Mercury Prize in 2014 and 2017, respectively. Last year, Kate Tempest was nominated at The BRIT Awards for Best Female Solo Performer.
 
A handful of words often tell you everything you need to know. When asked, who is Kate Tempest? She gives a brief, albeit telling answer. “Kate Tempest is the words,” she responds. You haven’t ever seen, heard, or experienced anyone quite like her. Tempest uncovers the missing link between the Golden Ages of literature and hip-hop. The London-born BRIT Award-nominated spoken word artist, rapper, poet, novelist, and playwright rhymes with a century-turning fury. Since her emergence in 2011, she has redefined what it means to be a wordsmith in the Modern Age. To date, she has published three poetry collections, staged three plays, and released two studio albums. Along the way, she entranced audiences on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy FallonNPR’s “Tiny Desk,” and more. Not to mention, she garnered widespread critical acclaim from The New York TimesThe New YorkerForbes, and more, to name a few. In the midst of this whirlwind journey, she performed a passage of her popular 75-minute narrative poem, Brand New Ancients, on Charlie Rose. Legendary producer and American Recordings Founder Rick Rubin caught the show, tracked down her phone number, and made a call. This set a series of events in motion that led to her 2019 debut album for American Recordings, The Book of Traps and Lessons, set for release on June 14.

“Thirsty”

OMB Peezy “Preacher to the Streets” Mixtape

OMB Peezy releases his latest mixtape, Preacher to the Streets, with guest appearances from G-Eazy, Boosie Badazz, Lil Durk, Sada Baby and more via 300 Entertainment and Sick Wid It Records

Lil Durk joins Peezy on “100”, which stresses integrity and appreciation. Wise beyond his years, OMB Peezy thoughtfully narrates explicit tales that lead right to your front door. Born in Alabama and raised in the Bay, OMB Peezy offers life lessons that show growth and discipline through his experiences and thoughtful processes. In “Ms Lois House”, the rapper reflects on hard times, lessons and blessings that occurred at or near his grandmother’s infamous home. 

“I really feel like the is the most satisfied I’ve been with putting together a full body of work. On certain songs like I tried digging deeper into my thoughts and feelings. However, I still show my day one fans that I’m having fun with life mo matter how tough the trials and tribulations are. I am Pastor P. I am a preacher to the streets,” said Peezy.

On his previous project, Loyalty Over Love, the 21-year-old rapper was adamant about showing the world who he really is and keeping the features to the minimum. Now, he is ready to show the magic created when he bounces off the energy of his peers. OMB Peezy maneuvers through beats with a sense of arrogance that could come from nowhere else but the streets. Pitchfork stated that “Peezy often structures his verses like rants, swinging between thoughts while simultaneously reacting to them.” He plays with different tempos and delivers stories through respected hip-hop techniques that have allowed him to create and dominate his own lane. 

Be sure to listen to Preacher to the Streets below and keep a look out for Peezy and Lil Durk’s music video to “100.”

Mat Kerekes Releases Album “Ruby”

Toledo, OH singer-songwriter Mat Kerekes has released his new album Ruby, via Black Cement Records. The album is available digitally HERE and physically HERE starting today.  

Best known as lead vocalist of celebrated alt rock band Citizen, Kerekes presents his softer side and showcases his versatility as a singer-songwriter on his new solo material. Incorporating elements of pop and alternative, Ruby boasts massive choruses, dynamic arrangements, and infectious melodies. 

Kerekes began writing and demoing Ruby at home with no particular goal in mind besides self-expression. However once longtime collaborator Will Yip heard the demos, he asked that Kerekes consider releasing them on his newly formed Elektra Music Group sub-label Black Cement Records. Kerekes tracked most of the instruments himself, and produced and engineered Ruby in a studio that he built with his brother in his garage. 

Since I recorded and produced the album myself, without having anyone talking in my ear, it honestly makes me feel more personally attached to it. It feels like mine,” shared Kerekes. 

Ruby follows 2016’s Luna & The Wilde Blue Everything as Kerekes’ fourth solo album. Kerekes began unveiling songs from the album late last year with the release of title track “Ruby”. In February, he shared the album’s anthemic second single “Diamonds”. Kerekes collaborated with director Johnny Chew on music videos for both tracks, and is expected to release an additional music video for “Hawthorne” in the coming weeks. 

Last month, Kerekes wrapped a headline tour that saw him debut songs from Ruby to sold-out rooms across North America. This evening, he will celebrate the release of the album with a hometown in-store performance at Toledo, OH’s Culture Clash Records. Upcoming live dates and ticket information can be found HERE
