Born of Brazilian, Filipino and Jamaican descent, Jevon has always strived to bring new sounds and influences to the table. After working behind the scenes with artists like Stefflon Don, Yxng Bane and RAY BLK plus helping a new generation of UK artists find their sound, Jevon is now staking his place amongst them as one of the frontrunners. Not concerned with following musical cycles Jevon draws from styles not typically associated with UK Rap and R&B. His first EP, due out Fall 2018, is an insight into the battles Jevon faces when dealing with scenarios that are beyond the norm for a kid growing up. It reveals a vulnerability and a stripping back of the ego that has helped shape his music and character to this day.

M.I.A., Santigold, fka twigs and Christine and the Queens are just some of the comparisons that were made when French genre-bending R&B / pop modernist SÔNGEreleased her self-titled debut EP in 2017. Yet much like those boundary-breaking artists, SÔNGE is a creative force in her own right with a distinct and uncompromising musical vision. Equally inspired by synaesthesia, mythology and post-impressionism, SÔNGE is one-of-a-kind.
That’s a trait that SÔNGE resolutely demonstrates with her brand new track ‘Roses’. The song represents the first taster of her full-length debut album, which will follow in 2019.
Produced by Myd (Club cheval, Theophilus London) of Ed Banger Records, ‘Roses’ finds SÔNGE contrasting the languid, regret-filled grooves of the verses with a defiant hook fuelled by echoing synth shots and skittering beats. Her vocals organically capture the emotional heart of the subject matter, from heartfelt regret to strutting self-confidence. The creative vocal production embellishments add to the track’s singular style, especially when her voice is pitch-shifted down to a near baritone.
The track was mixed and mastered by NKF, best known for his work with PNL and Orelsan.
Directed by Arnaud Giacomini, a former collaborator with Olivier Assayas and Mia Hansen-Løve, the video exudes a hazy, late summer vibe. It depicts SÔNGE undertaking a road-trip accompanied by two enigmatic sidekicks known only as A and M. In keeping with the song’s theme of impermanence, the trio ultimately engage in visceral scenes of destruction.
In addition to her more esoteric influences such as Paul Gauguin and Lars von Trier, you can trace echoes of contemporary greats such as Björk and Kendrick Lamar in SÔNGE’s exploratory soundscapes. Whether based in her hometown of Brest in Brittany or dating back to when she lived in Germany and Amsterdam, SÔNGE’s insomnia has provided a silver lining of creativity: an opportunity to write songs free from the distractions of the daylight hours.
Look into the roots of strong R&B vocalists, and you may find they spent time singing in church. The modern soul approach of Queen Naija, which can be heard on tracks such as "Bad Boy," "Mama's Hand" and "Medicine," is partially due to getting schooled early on - she was part of a choir as a child in her native Detroit. That was way before she became a YouTube hero, of course. For the last few years, she's been pleasing fans by inviting them into her all aspects of her life as a wildly popular vlogger. Boasting three million subscribers, her YT channel has focused on delivering personal candor to an ever-growing fan base. When she and her husband split last year, it prompted her to hit the studio and not only vent some frustration but stand up for women everywhere. "Medicine" busted the the 23-year-old to the next-level success that she's riding right now. Her follow-up track on the same subject, "Karma," is just as revealing, with a message attached. "I'm just letting him know, 'I might be sad right now, you might be happy, but the table's gonna turn.'" She really brought the drama, and a little bit of that church vibe, when she stopped by to perform it, and explained her feelings on its double-edged sword effect. "While it makes me feel good that other women can relate to what i'm writing, it makes me feel bad that they have to go through it."

“Last year I took a trip to London for 3 weeks to chase a girl I barely knew…I thought I was in love with this girl I had never even met in person.
Long story short…I realized she was fake and that it wasn’t gonna work out. This was only a week into the trip…I was stuck. I didn’t want to be there. And even though I was the one who ended it with the girl, I still walked around for the next two weeks in a state of heartbreak and in a drunken stooper.
The strange thing about traveling the world is you feel like you could almost be anywhere. You look at time zones and see how its only 5am at home as you’re eating a late lunch. Or how, if you were in Hong Kong, the sun would have long gone down. Time becomes lucid.
This song is about being trapped in “the in-between.” This song is about going across the world to break your own heart. It’s about being a ghost in a faraway place that doesn’t seem real.”
“GOLD RUSH” arrives at all music retailers and streaming services on Friday, October 5th.

”Turn up on Sunday" is a rare gem of a Hip-Hop track from Washington D.C.'s own Grateful Edmund. The gospel-inspired track produced by Hits By Jude brings back a feeling the culture has been missing for quite some time. Although the overall tone of the track feels like a gospel track, it actually feels more like a day party or grown man infused party record that you could even play at a wedding. "Turn up on Sunday" could be this generations version of DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince's Summertime song. Check out the song on Youtube or stream "Turn up on Sunday” on Spotify and Apple music right now.
Bio: Grateful Edmund the emcee from Washington, D.C. helps keep the culture of Hip-Hop alive bringing back soulful beats and sharp lyricism. His music inspired by some raps caviar like AZ, PUSHA T, NAS, and JAY-Z, his music quickly reminds you of some of the greats of the 90s but still has a fresh take on the music for today’s audience. He released his first single "FREE YA MIND" in February (2018) and has since released a second single "Every N**ga is a Star" in June as a smashing follow-up both singles give a solid perspective of what we can expect down the road from the upcoming project "THE LAST 10" Mixtape. Grateful Edmund has toured internationally, visiting the UK, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and North America, as well as shows in South America, Canada, Australia, and Japan.

Songwriter, producer and musician SG Lewis today shares the video for his collaborative new single ‘Better’ with rising US star Clairo. The result of a chance writing session in LA, the track instantly became a viral hit last month and was labelled “addictive” by Pigeons and Planes” with Hypebeast calling it “the perfect summer jam”.
The innate chemistry the duo shared in the studio has now naturally translated into the fun, care-free video for ‘Better’. Shot in Chicago and produced by Weird Life Films (Ravyn Lenae, Soccer Mommy), ‘Better’ features both artists as they drive around the city in full-length tracksuits in a loving homage to classic Hype William’s directed videos of the later nineties, early noughties.
Speaking on the track, SG says “I played Clairo the instrumental and she jumped on it straight away! The process was so natural, I kept the beat unquantized from the jam as I felt like it gave the record an old disco feel”. The single is the perfect marriage of SG’s signature warm, sunny house production and Clairo’s dreamy vocal delivery. Clairo reflects, "Sam is one of the most talented producers I know. We met the same day that we made this song, and just clicked instantly. “Better” is one of the first real steps I’ve made into ‘pop music’ and this collab feels like a match made in heaven!"
‘Better’ is the latest in a long run of exceptional collabs for SG, with his upcoming album featuring J Warner, Kartell and a host of others yet to be announced. After an incredible run of dates across Europe, America, Australia and Asia so far this year, SG also recently announced a landmark headline show at London’s iconic superclub Printworks on December 7th. In addition he will return to the US for a full tour starting in September making stops at Brooklyn’s Elsewhere on September 28th & 29th and LA’s The Fonda Theater on October 19th.
This year, SG Lewis began releasing music from his ambitious three-part album ‘Dusk, Dark, Dawn’. Currently in phase one - ‘Dusk’ - SG imagines the trajectory of one night out in club music and is a loving tribute to club and youth culture. Referencing a wide breadth of styles and genres, ‘Dusk’ uses disco, west coast hip-hop and 80s electro to set the scene. Soon to move into Phase 2 - ‘Dark’ - he’ll use heavier styles like techno and rap to move the crowd into the night before heading off on his worldwide tour.
US pop prodigy Clairo is on an undeniable ascent, with collaborators including Rejjie Snow and Danny L Harle and her ‘diary 001’ EP receiving major accolades across the world.

Dropped on GRM Daily, the video follows his remix of Not3s’ ‘M3 Not You’ from earlier this year, with both tracks showcasing what’s to come from the burgeoning producer/mc/creative.

As CEO of Sound Records Ltd (a label he set up himself), the ambitious youngster aims to put out music from other acts as well as his own. Having already made some serious moves in 2017, at 16 he produced the award winning afrobeat star Samini’s single ‘One Shot’, a song which earned radio plays on BBC 1Xtra, Capital Xtra and further interviews with DJ Edu and Abrantee. Off his own back his second release ‘Know’ was championed by HotNewHipHop, indicating a potential cross-Atlantic appeal for his music also.
Whilst having a vibrant sound in line with his peers, SS’ music is deeply rooted in artistry and musicality from the past, as he embraces the classic records he was brought up - from Reggae, Hip Hop, R&B, Rare Groove, Jungle, Garage and the like. His music covers the emotions of a young man finding his place in this ever changing world.
