Originally discovered by FNT, Academy has made huge strides since their debut back in October of 2013. The duo has been well overdue for new tunes as it’s been almost a year since their freshman EP ‘Moving Methods‘ was released. Full of funky bass, horns and catchy guitar riffs by producer Matt Osenton, not to mention some fresh turntable scratching provided by DJ Smiles, this new single shows Evan and John’s versatility and progression as artists. Hold Me Down is the first single off their sophomore project set to drop later this Spring and if this is any indication, it appears your summer beach playlist will be full of Academy. Be sure to throw the guys a follow on Twitter (@Academy401) and Like their page on Facebook!

It’s been a minute since we have heard from the rapidly growing duo Academy. Unlike most, Academy had yet to release an official set of visuals despite having great success with their Moving Methods EP which dropped last June. That changed yesterday as the LA transplants connected with up and coming director Elemen† and dropped visuals for their most recent single We Ain’t Never. Head over to their SoundCloud to grab the free download and be sure to stay up to date with Academy by giving them a follow on Twitter (@Academy401).

Coleman Hell is a singer/songwriter that I introduced you guys to a few weeks back with his record “Heat Of The Night” which I had on repeat since. This week Mr. Hell dropped his EP titled Vena, and his latest “Red Rover” featuring La+ch was the only unreleased track off the EP. With mellow vibes, and retro feels, Coleman is on to something, and I’m excited to hear his follow up work. If you’re a fan of Passion Pit, or Chromeo, this is a must listen, and support by purchasing the EP today!

Juventa displays his versatility once again, opening the gateway into the heavens with an “Alternative Mix” of his original “Superhuman.” There’s no question or doubt that Juventa is well on a path to shaping the direction of this industry, unafraid to take chances and push the boundaries into arena’s untouched. Kelly Sweet’s voice engulfs you, helping her audience transcend reality into a world of dreams. To that I say, dream on little dreamers.

Alternative, Indie | BEND – Four

Posted by on October 7, 2014

 BEND   Four

Nothing excites me quite as much as young people with a passion for music.

Enter: BEND, the duo of college students who make indescribable Pop/Indie/Alternative sounds from their respective dorm rooms. Both originally from Los Angeles, vocalist, Sean, relocated to New York while producer, Garrett, stayed close to home at the University of Southern California.

Limited by their time apart during the school year, BEND spends countless hours during the Summer writing, producing, and recording. As they prepare to release their next project, Sean and Garrett unleash, “Four”. The song is co-produced by blackbear and shows the immense all-around talent of the band.

It had been nearly a year since last putting out a song. The artistic growth is palpable, and one can only imagine what is still in the vault, awaiting the public’s ears.

If you’re a fan, check out Garrett’s solo cover of the Baby Bash smash, “Suga Suga”, here.

Alternative, Hip-Hop | Aer – Whatever We Want Remix ft. Dizzy Wright

Aer Whatever We Want ft. Dizzy Wright 500x500 Aer   Whatever We Want Remix ft. Dizzy Wright

Do you like bars?  Candy bars, mobile phone service bars, RAP BARS?  Well, if you like the latter, you’re in luck.  Warming fans up for their House Party tour with 2013 XXL Freshman Dizzy Wright, Carter & David remix their last hit “Whatever We Want” with a new verse along with a guest cameo from Dizzy himself.  In my mind, Dizzy is one of the most promising MC’s still grinding on the come up – a focused flow with a message, so naturally he delivers a killer verse.  Carter though, DAMN he went in on this.
