Regnault Monday is a Hip Hop artist from Atlanta, GA making his debut into the music scene. Let us know what you think.
"Almost two years ago, I performed a song for Columbia University's Black History Month that I called "Power." The opening line, something I was sure of then, and that I am even more sure of now, was "I've got the power, the power is in my hands, and you, you only wish that you could understand."
Today that message is even more important to remind us all that we deserve good things and that we are the authors of our own story. We have power over our lives that we need to reclaim. I teamed up with my talented friends of the Art Girl Army to create this music video. I'm releasing this video to the public at a party in Brownsville, Brooklyn, as a part of my belief in radical joy. We are offering opportunities to send letters to the electoral college, featuring performers who believe in our message and bringing live artists to embody the message."
Copenhagen born and London based singer, songwriter & producer Marie Dahlstrøm hit the scene with her unique twist of alt-R&B when she released her first EP
'Feelings'. The EP catapulted Marie into the industry earning her a whopping three Scandinavian Soul Awards in 2013. Two EP's - and a master in Cognitive Neuroscience of Music later, Marie released her Tom Misch-produced single ‘One More Reason’ and is now back with her single 'Mine', and a full EP dropping later this November.
"This video was so much fun to make. Keita (the choreographer based in Tokyo) had created a routine for Look The Other last year, so when I figured I was going on a mini-tour to Japan, I thought it was a good opportunity to work with him and his dancers face to face. We met up with the Australian videographer Matt De Sousa, and filmed the video in the middle of Shibuya in Tokyo at 4 in the morning.
I edited the video myself when I got back to London, so this video is a perfect memory of Japan."
