Pop, Videos | Gallo Delivers Debut Single “Sugar Daddy” With Wild Video

Posted by on July 18, 2017

Gallo may just be my new favorite pop act. The thing that makes her so special is that she’s not your average pop princess. She comes straight out of left field with some jarring things that make her unique. Just take the music video for her debut single “Sugar Daddy” as evidence of that. It’s out there in the best way possible with its provocative edge and vibrant imagery. It comes as no surprise she’s a fan of Quentin Tarantino. As for the beautiful singer, we’re all on board the Gallo train and you will be too once you get a taste of “Sugar Daddy” today.

Posted by on June 28, 2017

I don’t know the last time I saw a music video for a remix, but they should be made more often if they come out as good as VenessaMichaels’ did. The LA beauty is one of the area’s most unique songsters, pushing her own brand of dance music that has swayed audiences since her very first release. She’s geared up for a huge remix EP, complete with remixes of urban hits from her past. One of those is “Get Busy” by Sean Paul. Instead of simply remixing it, she did that and put together a booty-filled music video that is 100% fun. Check out the video today and make sure to grab the free download of the track from Soundcloud!

Videos | Point Blank Teams Up With Smirnoff To Put Women Artist’s First

Posted by on June 23, 2017

In 2016 just 17% of electronic music festival headliners were women and only 5% of music producers were female. Thankfully Smirnoff Sound Collective recently collaborated with Point Blank Music School to address this imbalance of power within the music industry through their “Women Shaping Tomorrow” initiative, which featured an evening of panels and workshops with industry heavyweights like Mandy Parnell.

It’s all part of Smirnoff’s “Equalizing Music” campaign, a three year initiative that aims to double the number of female headliners by 2020. Based on the success of “Women Shaping Tomorrow”, it seems like they are well on their way.
