Hardy Caprio x DigDat “Gluten Tag”

Fast rising British rapper Hardy Caprio has released new single ‘Guten Tag’ via Virgin EMI today.

A collaboration with formidable London rapper DigDat ‘Guten Tag’ is the latest track to be taken from Hardy’s highly anticipated debut album set for release this summer. The perfect recipe for a vibe filled summer the video was directed by previous collaborator Wowa and continues to tilt a hat at Hardy’s success. 

Known as one of the game’s biggest hitters, DigDat’s tales from the jailhouse and the roads combined his immersive imagery and witty wordplay has established his place in the UK scene. The remix of his song ‘Air Force‘, featuring UK rap heavyweights Krept & Konan and K Trap, reached the Top 20 in the Official Singles Chart and made drill history in the process.

‘Guten Tag’ drops off the back of a stellar rise for Hardy Caprio. Most people would be absolutely delighted to either achieve a first-class degree in accountancy or to launch a thriving rap career. Incredibly Hardy Caprio did both at the same time.  After gatecrashing the UK rap scene, the charismatic young south Londoner has been on a vertical rise making waves and scoring chart hits with summery r’n’b-rap like Unsigned and Best Life, (both feat. One Acen), and the harder-edged dancefloor swagger of Rapper.  He has sold more than 1 million singles, sold out two national tours (many of which sold out within minutes of going on sale) and accomplished a gold and two silver records in one calendar year. 

Earmarked by The Guardian as an artist who’s “on the edge of breakthrough” and GRM Daily as “a rapper that is going to blow” and described by The Independent as “poised to break into the mainstream”, Hardy has delivered on the hype, cementing his reputation as an upcoming British MC to watch.

Following the release of ‘Guten Tag’ x DigDat, this year will see Hardy perform at a string of festivals over the summer and release his debut album.

ALMA Releases New Single & Music Video for “When I Die”

Finnish pop powerhouse ALMA releases new single and music video for “When I Die” via Casablanca Records / Universal / Warner / Virgin EMI & PME today.  Listen HERE.  Watch HERE.

Produced and written by ALMA, Justin Tranter, and Mike Sabbath “When I Die” is the second installment from her highly anticipated debut album Have You Seen Her? set for release on the 5th of April 2019. It also marks the start of a period of continuous activity, which will see fans receive a new track with accompanying visual episodically into its release.

Shot in her native Finland and directed by celebrated Finish director Miikka Lommi, the video for “When I Die”depicts a gothic last supper scene and ALMA digging her own grave. “This song was born from a big conversation about when and how we leave the world is so out of our control. We spend so much time worrying about things out of our control, we’re always trying to be better, richer, more successful. We rarely appreciate the moments in front of us. Go to the party, blow your money (even if you have work tomorrow) you will survive!” says ALMA. “I wanted the video to look like our last party, what might the night look like if we knew this was it.” 

“When I Die” highlights ALMA’s unique voice as a writer; honest, brave and fresh. As she says, “I’ve spent a lot of my life being told who to be, what to say or how to behave by the world. There’s constant pressure on us all to fit in and my music is about exactly the opposite. I want my fans to feel like they can be whoever, say whatever and look however when they listen to my music. Here you are accepted no matter what.”

ALMA – a 23-year-old with neon green hair, a magnetic punk attitude and a voice that could demolish buildings is part of a new wave of female powerhouses that have something say. Engaged and opinionated on issues from women’s rights to body positivity and sexuality ALMA is forward thinking and making a change.

Following her critically acclaimed EP “Dye My Hair” with platinum single “Chasing Highs”, smash track “Phases” FT French Montana (including an exclusive Charli XCX directed video) and her 2018 mixtape Heavy Rules;  ALMA has garnered over 350 million combined Spotify plays and topped iTunes charts around the world.

ALMA’s worked extensively with her friends Charli XCX, Tove Lo, Zara Larsson, Dua Lipa, Halsey, and Miley Cyrus but to name a few, both live and in the studio and garnered support the world over.

Wrapping up 2018 on the road with long term collaborator and friend  this year’s headline dates promise an entirely new show, new music and some very special surprises along the way.

Isaac Gracie’s Debut Album

Isaac Gracie’s highly anticipated, self-titled debut album is out now via Virgin EMI/Republic Records. 

 

The album was largely produced by Markus Dravs at RAK Studios in London and features eleven tracks, including Gracie’s recent tracks, “Last Words,” “Terrified” and “The Death of You & I.” See the full tracklisting below.

 

Of his debut album, Gracie says, “Over the course of the two years it took to complete this record, I learnt more about myself and about music than I had in the entirety of my prior life. It was the biggest test I’ve ever undertaken and a winding journey that I won’t forget. To now have the record as a physical representation of a heavy and formative time in my life, that can be traced and re-remembered through listening to it, is an awesome and unique reward for the time and effort and love that was spent.”

 

In celebration of the album, Gracie is set to embark on a UK tour throughout April, followed by a European tour throughout May. See the full list of show dates below. Tickets are available now here.

 

23-year-old London-raised singer-songwriter Isaac Gracie has been finding his feet, working out who he is and discovering what he wants since the industry spotlight fell on him. The fuss was caused by a dusty-sounding, careworn home recording of “Last Words” that was uploaded online without expectation and any anticipation of what was to follow. The voice behind it was completely new to the premise of where writing a great song might lead him. Even now he’d tell you that he’s still slowly working it all out, but this debut collection sounds as fully-realized and confident as any of recent memory. Isaac Gracie is a new British voice, poetic in his placement of words and accomplished in their delivery.

ISAAC GRACIE

Following his recently released EP, Death of You & IIsaac Gracie is pleased to share his new single, “Terrified”.

 
STREAM AND SHARE “TERRIFIED” HERE 
 
There would be a way to introduce Isaac Gracie that could make these early days of his music career sound golden: the 23-year-old London-raised singer-songwriter who sent the music industry into a fever with his debut track ‘Last Words’ — a song so finely-wrought, so tenderly poetic, as to mark him out as Britain’s brightest young thing. But that would be disingenuous. Because while Gracie is of course all of those things, he is also a young man in flux, a new artist in the midst of working out just who he is, what he wants, and what he’s doing. Bewildered, and at times frustrated — but sowing those frustrations into his music.
 
Yet the success of his recent EP, an emotive but direct and pressing spate of recordings, and now here its successor Terrified, suggests that inner turmoil might well have been shed at the last corner as Isaac tentatively strides forth. Having spent the last days of Autumn nestled neatly on the Radio 1 playlist (with the EP’s title track) and captivating audiences out on the roads of Europe and the UK, Isaac’s graph of success is cautiously, steadily heading in the direction of top right. The venues are becoming bigger, the live performances are now backed by a band to make the sound that much broader, and the confidence is starting to show.
 
If you’ve been following Isaac’s releases carefully, you’ll perhaps already recognise Terrified as a self-produced demo right back where it all started, on an EP of rough but hugely promising acoustic solo tracks. It was as melodious then as it is here, but the song now soars, swells, and glides. It sounds noticeably ‘big’ without sounding busy, and it’s Isaac’s economy with words that gives it the room and space to breathe.
 
With a debut album currently being finished and expected in the Spring of 2018 via Virgin EMI, and further live dates across the globe being added to almost weekly, Isaac Gracie could well become the household name that these songs threaten.
 
It might have taken him a minute or two to work out who he is, what he wants, and indeed, to work out why on earth the spotlight looks set to fall on him next year, but Isaac Gracie has found his voice, his words, and ultimately his resilience to place himself front and centre of whatever is to follow. It’s a journey worth following. Join him.
