NorCal's own Rayven Justice refuses to be boxed in by topic or genre, opting to carve his own lane with a hypnotic blend of R&B and Hip-Hop. The singer/songwriter has been making noise the last few months, with the release of his singles " Too Late ," " Between Your Thighs " and recently appearing on Mally Mall's " Purpose " featuring Rich The Kid. On his upcoming new single, "Why Me," Rayven cleverly croons about a fling with a girl, who has a boyfriend, and doesn't want to go back. "Why Me," sonically adopts the familiar Bay Area sound, with radio friendly, mid-tempo production. Rayven's shows a knack for catchy songwriting and choruses, blending genres with seamless crossover potential on his forthcoming new single.
TY is back with another banger... ‘Discovery’. This time he enlists the help of a man many consider to be the future of R&B in New Zealand – Mikey Mayz.
Produced by long-time collaborator Willstah, TY’s new song is about a special person he has met, and this is an ode to her - his ‘greatest discovery’.
Scotti Bishop is back with a new single “Huey,” and it is nothing like the music you’ll find on the charts in today’s climate. Hailing from a small town just outside of Sacramento, CA, Scotti suffers from the same angst that any young person with ambition feels when they find themselves outgrowing their surroundings. “Huey” was written to express the sense of entrapment that Scotti deals with growing up in an environment where success is equivalent to graduating junior college and settling for the first job that pays slightly above minimum wage. What makes “Huey” standout from the other songs on the airways is the abstract nature of Scotti’s songwriting, the vivid details coupled with the vague references to Scotti’s personal life plays beautifully into the “young and hopeless” tone of the single. Overall, “Huey” is a song that will undoubtedly slap when your friends’ pass you the AUX cord; but at the same time, will resonate with any with anyone who’s ambition is bigger than their opportunities.

Just months after the release of the infamously, dark and thrilling "Tupac Murder Confession". The self-deified shaman, Cambatta returns with "God Lived (Devil Dog)," a hard hitting lyrical barrage over Superstaar Beats production to get fans ready for his next full length project. Lyricism over trap beats is a rare occurence in today's melody and dance-driven Hip Hop landscape but Cambatta once again shows why he stands out amongst his peers. Witty punchlines, double entendres and deep knowledge backed by 808s will make your head spin. The new Project LSD will be available this summer.

As anyone who has heard the track can attest, the two multi-talented artists crafted a seriously catchy banger with “Let’s Get Lost.” The song balances the concepts of lust and love over bouncy electronic production, which actually serves as the pulse of these eye-popping visuals.
Super-talented visual artist GeD (peep his Instagram: @ged_kid ) is the man behind the video, which features some slick editing work and even more impressive animation. Beyond the creative nods to Lex and Hellz’ lyrics and instrumentation, GeD pieced together some scenes that will have any video game fan feeling some instant nostalgia. We’re talking references to Pac-Man and that damn dog from Duck Hunt, the latter of whom finally gets what’s been coming to him.

Armed with gripping lyricism and his own jazzy production, DMV artist Sheik Kargbo reveals the vivid new visuals for “Trapped (Buck Feeva).” It’s a stirring look into his hometown of Alexandria, VA, while providing another example of why he’s about to make some major noise this year.
The video’s directed by Aye Waiter, who was beyond the lens on Kargbo’s preceding video/single, “New Neighbors.” And just as that effort was instantly captivating, the same goes for “Trapped” and its portrayal of street life in the Virginia city. The simple touches of color here and there make every scene pop, while serving as visual accents to what’s already a compelling narrative.
And that narrative, as Kargbo repeats on the hook, is about being “Trapped in the trap” and everything that entails. With his pen as his weapon, he takes aim at snitches, task forces, and anyone else trying to stir the pot in his city, while also showcasing his impressive chops as a producer. Just listen to that smooth beat-switch during the third verse, and just try not to run it back.
Check out the visuals, and then head over to iTunes where the track is available for download as the second instant-grat track off The Speakeasy Experience, which is also available for pre-order through Amazon and Google Play . The 20 track self-produced LP is set to drop May 12th, via Kargbo’s own Renaissance Republic imprint.

Paul Junior sends a powerful and emotional message with his new Music Video of his debut single 'Firing Line'. He brought in one of Denver's best and well known videographers to work with; Jeremy Pape of Collective Culture. The video tackles issues we are dealing with in today's world such as Police Brutality, racial profiling, PTSD, and the Healthcare system.
Paul Junior is currently making his transition from a Hip Hop artist to a prominent Pop/R&B artist, Soul singer, and Producer. He spent his last 7 years of his professional career primarily as a rapper a part of the group Fresh Breath Committee. During his tenure with FBC, he handled all of the recording and mixing, and helped with some of the managerial duties which included marketing, promotions, and booking. Fresh Breath Committee gained a 'Denver's Best Hip Hop Album' award in 2010, followed by 7 years in a row of 'Best Hip Hop Group' nominations by Westword, before being named a 'Denver Music Icon' in 2014. Because of his hard work with the group, it was hard for him personally to pursue a solo career at the same time. Most of his FBC counterparts were able to work on side projects and focus on their solo careers, while he made the choice not to because of the group.
The last 4 years he began focusing on his singing much more and branched out into the Denver Funk/Cover Band scene and headed bands like Funkiphino, Over Soul'd, Hip Pocket, and a being a member of a big Michael Jackson Tribute Band called Forever Dangerous. These band experiences enabled him to perform w/ Funkiphino at the Denver Broncos Super Bowl Parade in 2016 in front of a crowd of 1 Million, opening for 3OH!3 and Big Head Todd.
The last 2 years he has been working with his partner Nick Torres on opening and running the recording studio Mint Audio, located in Denver's Art District.
It's been a long journey, and now it's finally his time. Paul Junior's new music video and solo debut is upon us. Released on April 19, 2017, this single will eventually lead up to his debut solo album titled 'Santa Fe Drive' in late 2017.
'Firing Line' is co-written by Jon Portillo and Paul Junior, features prominent Guitar work by Denver singer/songwriter David Henning, and is also produced by Paul Junior. The video stars Brian Milton in a powerful lead role, along with songwriter Jon Portillo as the Police Officer. You can also catch a cameo by Denver Hip Hop favorite, Bianca Mikahn.
Baldwins is an eight-piece progressive-soul band hailing from Sydney, Australia. Combining elements of soul, jazz, and rock, the band have developed a distinctive sound with lush jazz-tinged harmony and dense polyrhythmic writing. A multitude of eclectic influences have informed the band’s sound – a genre they themselves call ‘progressive soul’ – which takes cues from such neo-soul/hip-hop artists as Thundercat and D’Angelo, the textural composition of producers such as Taylor McFerrin, as well as influences from alternative artists such as Radiohead. All of these inspirations have amalgamated in an unconventional sound that is entirely their own.
Dirty Sheets is about the journey we take through the exhilaration of love and lust. The excitement that pumps through your body; the butterflies that lift you, making you feel weightless; and the touch of a lover that melts you in an instant. Then there comes a moment when that exhilaration is stripped away, leaving you confused as to why it has gone or whether you really ever had it at all.
Baldwins are set to drop their debut EP in mid 2017.

Rising north London rapper IYKZ (formerly Ikes) is back with brand-new single “They Know (Wan Mo)”, a collaboration with fellow Londoner Maleek Berry.
Written and produced by IYKZ and Maleek, the single is part of the growing Afro Bashment movement and is already a hit on streaming platforms, with almost 150,000 streams on Spotify alone since being released independently only a few weeks ago. The track’s success also extends to radio, with notable support from renowned UK radio DJs Twin Band DJ Target on BBC Radio 1Xtraand Jay London on Capital XTRA.
With the single off to a strong start, IYKZ is keeping the momentum going with the release of the music video directed by Meji Alabi(Zak Abel, Maleek Berry, Sneakbo) for JM Films. Shot in an underground warehouse in Hackney, east London, the monochromatic visuals provide the perfect backdrop for the gritty, hard-hitting street anthem, which also pays homage to the two rappers’ Nigerian heritage.
Speaking on the record, IYKZ says, “‘Wan mo’ means ‘they know’ in the Nigerian Yoruba language. I’m Igbo but Maleek is Yoruba, so we blend both dialects throughout the record. It’s a patriotic street anthem. We want our voices to be heard. We linked up and did everything in Maleek’s bedroom. By the end of the session, we knew we had something special.”
With Maleek producing much of IYKZ’s early material, it’s not the first time they have collaborated or appeared in the same video together. "Working with IYKZ is always magic”, Maleek says of their partnership. “I love working with people who have a deep understanding of music, so it's always bound to be something special when we collaborate."
“They Know (Wan Mo)” is available to buy and stream now and is one of several new singlesIYKZ will be releasing over the coming months. Keep up to date with all future releases and news by following him online:
