Newcentz’ fight with adversity has molded his heart into a chilling organ. Growing up in West Baltimore, life has not been the easiest for this budding artist. It all started with Newcentz being incarcerated at 16 years old, serving a three and a half year sentence. And then recently the 23 year old artist just lost his friend to a senseless murder at a Baltimore lounge. Putting all of this pain into his music is what will push his progression. The end goal with a career in music is for his three daughters, so that they don’t have to live with the battles that he has faced.

Alternative, Indie, RnB | LAUV – The Other

‘You have the voice of an angel’ is what I said when I first heard LAUV; No, I am not John C. Reilly and I am not talking about Will Ferrell in Step Brothers. Ok, thats not even what I said, but, ‘Holy shit, I didn’t know you could sing!’ was what I said when LAUV gave me a sneak peak of his debut single a few days prior to its release. Formally known to those in the industry for his EDM producing skills  under a different stage name, LAUV is coming out of the gates swinging with his debut single ‘The Other‘.

With a voice you’d expect to be in the next big boy band, ‘The Other‘ consumes you from the first few notes all the way through to the last. There was no doubts about his production skills but he has absolutely outdone himself putting his writing skills on display. LAUV is going to be huge, very huge.

With the style and creativity of Jon Bellion and a voice somewhere between SoMo and The Weeknd, Dylan Reese is someone you need to get familiar with. This up and coming R&B artist brings a certain attitude, style and work ethic to the often times forgotten genre.

 

Recently, Dylan has taken a pause on his original music and has been crafting unique medleys of well known songs. Today, Dylan let go the second installment in which he takes pop superstars Maroon 5’s ‘She Will be Loved’ and ‘Sunday Morning’ as well as ‘Say You Will’ by Kanye West’s favorite person, Kanye West. Dylan’s ability to fuse the three songs into one medley and really make it his own is spot on; be sure to check out the initial medley ‘Often/3005‘.

Indie, RnB | Usher – Yeah (Pat Lok Remix)

Posted by on December 8, 2014


So I’ve had a lot of coffee this morning, but I just realized I’ve played this track 13 times already today. Honestly though, Pat Lok has brought the fire once again. What else is new. This prolific Vancouver producer has been gaining serious momentum in 2014 with some huge tracks including remixes for Alunageorge and Olympic Ayres. And with this remix of a club classic, we expect it to have some serious success. This is the definition of catchy, don’t sleep on Pat Lok!
