It’s been a few months since we have heard from Los Angeles duo ACADEMY. Following the success of their EP The Beat Generation, Evan and John spent the last few months playing shows all over the country with the likes of Vic Mensa, Aer, Misterwives, Smallpools and many others. Now that they are about to hit the road on a Fall tour they teamed up with the other half of the billing, Matt Easton for a very dope track enlisted Can’t Teach. The new track gives off more of a hip hop vibe than we are used to getting from them, really showing their versatility. Be sure to throw the guys a follow on Twitter (@Academy401) and Like their page on Facebook!

Finally, after numerous exciting singles and building of anticipation, the duo Aer has unleashed their full length album “One of a Kind”. While it stays true to their old reggae-rap sound, the album is a complete step forward for Aer. I’ll leave it there and let the album speak for itself.
Download the project from iTunes here!
Also, if you missed it, check out Aer’s cover of “Up Up & Away”.

In preparation for their newest album One of a Kind, the Boston duo Aer drops off “Keep You Here”. An alternative reggae-rap song that entices listeners with soft-sung melodies and booming drums to accompany the hook.
While the video doesn’t add too much depth to the song, it’s a great look in to the setting of the song and shows that Aer is just as positive and happy as they’ve always been. Perhaps a highlight of the song is the short bridge towards the end which comes in with a light trumpet before returning to the upbeat chorus.
If you pre-order their upcoming album, here, you will receive an instant download to “Keep You Here” and two other songs!

The California duo RKCB made waves with their latest single “Ignite,” a sexy alternative RnB ditty with hints of electronic feels. It’s been a good week that this track was released, and I was on it early, and I’m happy to see that it’s picking up steam. Currently at #2 on Hypem’s Popular chart, give it a <3, and let’s get it to #1, time to get good music back in rotation, worldwide. This is a must listen!

WOW, Down in Flames is probably the best releases I have stumbled onto this summer, its an absolute smash. Cleopold, who recently signed to Chet Fakers label is definitely making music that I think will make you just jump in your car, put the top down, and just drive for hours. A super catchy hook, and a groovy beat produced by the legendary Bag Raiders, nothing gets better than that. Make sure you take a listen to this one, cause if you didn’t know who Cleopold was , now you do!

One of my favorite two artist right now Jahkoy and Vasta on one record, this is a dream come true. Jahkoy, who is a Toronto native is probably the most talented up and coming RnB acts on the scene now and is definitely about to have his year. Vasta, who I spotted a few months ago is working his way up the ranks in the dance world taking on an impressive set of remixes including The Chainsmokers last single as well as up and coming stars XYLO. Either way, make sure you grab this release for FREE and definitely keep an eye on Vasta as he selects some of the best artists to remix!
