Pop | Alxxa Teams Up With Gazzo For “Umbrella” Cover

Posted by on September 18, 2017

We had a chance to meet Alxxa over the weekend in Los Angeles and she’s the real deal. Her brand new take on Rihanna & Jay-Z’s “Umbrella” has us instantly hooked. Of the Gazzo produced cover she said:

“’Umbrella’ is such a badass song, and Gazzo and I knew we could do something different with it. That’s always the test of a good song, whether it’s stripped down, produced out, thrown into different genres, does it still work? Rihanna definitely got it right with this one and we had a good time putting our own spin to it.”

Keep your eye on Alxxa. She’s on the rise.

House | MK’s “17” Is A Ridiculous Smasher That We Can’t Get Enough Of

Posted by on September 15, 2017

MK. What a legend. The guy just dropped “17” and it’s straight quality, just like we expected. “17” is one of those tracks that you listen to with the windows rolled during the golden hour on the 101 trying to get home Friday rush hour. It’s a stellar track that grows on you the more you listen. It’s one of those pop a pacifico by the pool while you grill out with your mates and your main check (while your side-chick texts you). If you haven’t heard “17” you need to smash that play button courtesy of Selected.

Be sure to put this bad boy in your Spotify playlist.
