Sydney, Australia based singer/songwriter/rapper Nick de la Hoyde begun expressing himself through music when he was 16 and pursuing a professional, football career in Barcelona. Music quickly became an outlet through which Nick could express the frustrations that come with chasing your dreams and the result was a unique and deeply personal insight into youth, dreams and determination. Growing up in a multi-cultural home with a Syrian mother and British father, Nick was exposed to many global influences which he weaved into his music melding sounds of hip hop, rock, alternative, R&B and spoken word, together with introspective lyrics that read like personal journal entries. Nick and his long-time producer/collaborator/older brother Joseph (ZUZU) de la Hoyde, have crafted a sound that is simultaneously intimate, expansive and engaging. Now at 22, Nick has penned confessional, real life anthems such as Thinking Bout You, Never Gonna Beg For It, By My Side and Changing, that take you on a free-spirited, hypnotic and sometimes soulful sonic journey to find the path forward. Nick has quickly made a name for himself in the social media space cultivating a large and dedicated on-line following, becoming a powerful voice for youth empowerment and positivity.
LOVE TAKES TIME
Nick’s newest installment ‘Love Takes Time’ is a sultry electronic track that bends the line between pop and future, showcasing Nick’s evolution into a very capable pop artist. In the lyric, Nick’s yearning for love turns into the realization that love truly does takes time and can’t be forced. Nick’s delicate falsetto sits upon a bed of mallets before crescendoing to an intense swelling of synth and percussion in the choruses.
MANILA GREY is a Filipino duo made up of Soliven & Neeko. The ‘1z’ music video was created in early 2017 and was inspired by the distinct visuals of the Filipino culture . Working with director M64, the duo pushed to modernize the culture's tropes by choosing locations with character, capturing flaws and imperfections and creating an aesthetic that has never been seen before.
The Midwest music industry is one of the most underrated in the nation (well of course with the exclusion of Chicago). Telling someone that there are a bunch of talented well doing musicians out in a state like Iowa would almost sound like a conversation about the rearing of farm animals and the mime of country music. But guess what? The likes of Lyrikal do not just exist as hip hop musicians living in Iowa, he survives and feed his family on money earned from music produced by his entertainment company; The Teknitions LLC manned out of Iowa.
In 2014, the Iowa raised Minnesota native produced and released the Vol 1 of his NoizeMakerz project. This is a project that should be classified as one of the best projects out of the Midwest if given the right attention by the national media community. Lyrikal and The Teknitions toured about 18 cities performing songs off the project and sold Merchandise branded after the project on the NoizeMakerz tour in the summer of 2014. Word on the streets has it that some boobs were signed and it is on record that a good number of CDs and merchandise were also sold on the tour.
Ever since, the fast rising artist and producer has been growing and strengthening the wheels of his production company; The Teknitions LLC. This earned him the reputation of opening for Tech9ne’s tour two years in a row and he is again on the Strictly Strange Tour 17.
Just shortly after coordinating the release of the Q1 mixtape for his team, Lyrikal is officially announcing the release of his forthcoming project billed to drop in the summer of 2017 with a single titled “All about the Pay” featuring Nigerian born USA based Afro Pop music head – Ajofe StreetMic AKA StreetMic Tha Virus.
All about the pay x-rays the struggles of these two young men in achieving life goals and meeting family needs. It tells stories of victory over past travails and the continuous strife of securing a better tomorrow.
Artist: 88 Killa featuring YKK
Song title: The Code
Produced by : Ish D
from the 88 BPM EP
This song resonates with me because I wrote it at a time when I felt that everyone that I once respected let me down. Although I learned a lot of valuable things from various mentors and peers, I soon began to piece together that they often weren’t living by the same standards that they were holding me too. So I took that frustration and channeled it into this record as message to them. I hope that whoever listens to this, can either relate or use this song as a way to convey the same sentiment to whoever they feel is living up to the code.

It’s been an incredible 12 months for Texas duo Tritonal, with an extensive US tour, selling out legendary venues like Terminal 5 in New York City and The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. The act is just starting their accent into the pop stratosphere with the release of their new video and single for their song "Strangers".
The video features Lil Buck who's been on a meteoric rise since the premier of his Louis Vuitton x Nowness piece and his Superbowl Lexus Commercial . The video for "Strangers" starts with Lil Buck dancing opening and with large, exaggerated movements, only to have his physical space reduced as the song progresses. Lil Buck's performance is beautiful, full of energy and raw emotion. Let the song and video take you on a journey.

Indianapolis hip hop artist Willis, just released his Game Of Thrones inspired music video for "Stories of Old". Willis produced the record himself, as he does all of his music, engineered it, mixed it, and mastered it himself. He wrote and directed the video, which was filmed by Ball State University film aficionado Nevin Markitan, who's developed a reputation for himself after having a few of his videos featured on Indianapolis news stations and media sources. This medieval short film stars up-and-coming actor Sam Anderson as the "hero" being chased by the armor-clad "villain" played by fellow Indianapolis rapper, Paper Cleveland. This video is a perfect reflection of Willis’ personality as the quiet smart kid you’d never picture rapping. It’s now safe to identify Willis as one of the most thought-provoking rappers in the city of Indianapolis. Even without the city-backing expected from such a high performing artist, Willis is providing a fresh approach to hip-hop all by being himself and being honest about it. Isn’t that all we ask for?

In the fast-paced world of rap music, some artists are lucky enough to have opportunities fall into their lap and blow up instantly. Then you have the ones who have to toil behind-the-scenes before they finally get their chance to shine. K Camp, the man behind the hit singles “Money Baby” and “Cut Her Off” can relate to being a little bit of both. With his newest single, “Rockstar Crazy,” K Camp is proving that it is no longer about luck, just his determination and unrelenting skills behind the mic.
The new video, “Rockstar Crazy,” (premiered via WorldStar) is drops a fiery piece of minimalist opulence that gives K Camp the opportunity to light up the screen and show that his larger than life persona is enough to fill the screen. Set deep in the desert flats out west K Camp spits endless fire with just a few select props to illustrate just how bodacious he can be. A Fender Strat, a sexy lady on his arm, and an over-the-top fur coat are all hallmarks of the “rock star” lifestyle repurposed for K Camp, who definitively shows that this hip hop artist is more of a rockstar than any modern rock band!
As Jacob Lee's 2nd single, 'I Just Know' has achieved over 310,000 streams on Spotify. Released late 2016, 'I Just Know' was written about the arduous journey one takes to discover & achieve their purpose. It conveys a message that someone always believes in you, even when you think you're alone.
