Zak Downtown has been at it for a while now, and I keep loving every release! The most recent release is exactly what I think a smash sounds like, roll down the windows and turn up the volume. Not only is the flow on point, but it pairs perfectly with the production as Zak takes us on a sonic journey and the catchy “Kylie Kendall” helps bridge each of the verses.
Make sure you grab the Free Download and definitely give him a Follow on Twitter and Like on Facebook and I can’t wait to hear whats next from this rising star!

Fans of Aer, Cris Cab, or Academy take notice, William Bolton is up next and is easily becoming one of my favorite artists. The Detroit native is bringing back old school Mo-Town and mixing in some Pop, Hip Hop and Summer vibes for a scintillating sound that has you playing it time and time again. On My Mind is going to be on his forthcoming project, ‘Love Supreme‘ set to drop this summer which should be one of the top projects set to drop in 2015.

As Winter turns to Spring in New England, Boston native TJ Hickey delivers some summer-esque acoustics vibes with Good Girl. The Sean Devine produced track is extremely smooth and a much slower change of pace relative to TJ’s previous work. Good Girl is the last of four releases from TJ as he continues to prepare for the release of his album Undeniable coming this summer. Stay connected with TJ on Twitter and Facebook!
Hip-Hop | Clinton Sparks Raises Human Trafficking Awareness With “The Reaper” Video Featuring Snoop Dogg And Problem
Posted by BIGLIFE on April 22, 2015
Clinton Sparks is taking a stand against human trafficking in his latest music video, “The Reaper” featuring Snoop Dogg and Problem. In his cunning new visuals, Sparks plays a man out to save a group of girls from being kidnapped and sold. It’s an extremely personal video for the Boston based DJ/producer as he’s currently working with a non profit Not For Sale and wants to continue to help those who have been through similar traumatic experiences.
“My whole life is about evoking emotion and I’m being selfish by keeping this in and not sharing it. There could be somebody out there who hears my story and they see how happy and successful I am and say, ‘He did it, so can I’.”
Get familiar with Clinton’s all new “The Reaper” video above.

Frank Leone – River Beat
Currently residing in Chicago, Frank Leone is wise beyond his years. He conveys that wisdom along with a newly developed knack for singing in his latest release “River Beat”. The song is meant to tide us over until visuals from Frank’s latest project Enter Wild are ready for the world. At the rate that I’m playing this song on repeat, I’m not sure if it will be enough to keep me from wanting more.
Love at First Sound – Songs Written About Girls
Sometimes it’s best to simply play right in to the cliches that everyone can relate to. Love At First Sound knows this and crafted just another “Song Written About Girls”. What might appear as surface level at first listen, quickly reveals itself as a personal ballad about some of the women in everyday life as well as in Love At First Sound’s past. Monotone and melodic, this one is undoubtedly worth the listen.
Witty Rock – Benzo
Hailing from Baltimore, Witty Rock released a chilling new video for his song “Benzo”. The drugged-out rap hints at something deeper, and begs a second listen. Enjoy the visuals which are self-/edited by Witty himself.
Nicx – Indo
Nicx is a talented young gun from Atlanta who manages to fill every pocket every track with intrinsic and meaningful rhymes. While “Indo” doesn’t dive quite as deeply in to his story-telling as usual, it gives listeners a good sense of balance coming off of his aggressive “Merk” Remix.

R&B is a genre that gets lost in the shuffle, with EDM, Pop and Urban dominating most of the mainstream media outlets and blogs there is a significant amount of talent that goes unrecognized. Though, with the prominence of acts such as The Weeknd, SoMo, PartyNextDoor and others, some light is starting to get shed on one of the few genres that has proven to withstand the test of time.
Boston native Dylan Reese is one of the most promising talents in R&B in quite some time. Smooth vocals, incredibly original content and a work ethic that is required to make it in this industry. Dylan wrote ‘Miss America‘ back in 2013 but only recently put the finishing touches on the track with his very talented producer, October. This track really encompasses all of Dylan’s talents as the content is on point, the hook is extremely catchy and you even get Dylan spitting on a verse.
Be sure to give Dylan a follow on Twitter and a Like on Facebook!
