Alternative | Bre Kennedy Releases Nostalgic Video for “Where Did Summer Go”

Posted by on November 17, 2020

Bre Kennedy has taken this year to write her first full length record and through the process found herself writing inevitably about her own experience of seeing this heavy year come and go all from her window. Although she is still in the thick of writing her debut record, she wanted to release this song as an introduction of what’s to come for 2021.

“Where Did Summer Go” is a nostalgic fall ballad written with one of her favorite co-writers, Brian Brundage, Kennedy from her apartment in East Nashville and Brundage from his family home in Jersey over zoom. The song starts by listing all of the things Bre was dreaming to do this year but could not because of the state of the world. This song symbolizes the passing and loss of time and dreams that never got to see the heat of summer. Watch the video above now!

Chill, House, Pop | Fast-Rising NICOLAS First Original “TEST DRIVE” Begins Take-off

Posted by on November 15, 2020

NICOLAS is new and not much known is about him. Yet it’s songs like, “Test Drive,” and very new, very hype releases that keep people sharply eyeing the stir being generated by a seemingly unknown, yet experienced musician.

Vocal works collides naturally with synth-infused production, tempos and atmospheres bring out the spirit of the creative nature at hand, and a bit of undefinable zest straps together and completes something rich and time-testing within the framework of a song.

Featured on a collaboration with David Dann, “You & Me,” in 2020 and now laying out singles which are part of a bigger EP launch, NICOLAS is given fans and listeners plenty to latch onto at an early stage.

Momentum is building and NICOLAS as front-and-center of the action.

I’m still figuring out a way to find who I am and what my life will be and I’m using music to express my feelings and internet to have a record of who I am. If you want to remember, be part of my, your, our project.’

– NICOLAS

Hip-Hop | Sugi Dakks Gets Deeply Rooted on new EP

Posted by on November 12, 2020

If you’re a fan of Anderson Paak and Eminem you will likely be a fan of Sugi Dakks music, especially this new ‘Deeply Rooted’ project. The soulful/funky/jazzy influenced hip-hop stylings are a breathe of fresh air in the current clip of rap. The 7-track-release can be streamed above, check out a quote from Dakks on the project below.

‘Deeply Rooted’ is an EP that explores my personal identity, the identity of others, and how we come to shape our identities. When it comes to racism, self-hatred, prejudice, bias, discrimination, and all forms of inequality, all of these are deeply ingrained in our society and deeply ingrained in most everyones personal story. Through this EP, I was able to share my story of how I viewed myself, how it differed from the viewpoints of my peers and the general society, and how bigotry is such a destructive engine that ruins people’s lives, livelihood, and self-worth.”
