Posted by on October 26, 2022

Hailing from Broward County, Florida, fast-rising rapper Ghostluvme only debuted on the music scene in 2020 but has already achieved so much success early on. Having worked with renowned hitmakers such as Scott Storch (Jack Harlow, Megan Thee Stallion, Young Thug), Zaytoven (Travis Scott, Lil Wayne, 21 Savage) and TRGC (Yeat’s “Monëy so big”), he has quickly racked up over 50 million streams across all platforms (including 30 million on Spotify) as an independent artist, and he doesn’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon. 

Fresh on the heels of his recent project, Mixtape, he has returned with his brand-new single, “Hydro”, produced by multi-platinum producer Brandon Finessin. Speaking further on the new release, Ghostluvme says, “This is the first track I’m dropping produced by famed producer Brandon Finessin. It came out of one amazing session, and I’ve always wanted it to be the first single off my next project. It’s inspired by the pirates and the sailors (One Piece anime).”“Hydro” is yet another impressive entry into Ghostluvme’s growing discography, and he continues to show he is one of hip-hop’s great new talents with a huge future ahead. With upcoming collabs lined up with megastars such as Future, Trippie Redd and Lil Uzi Vert, Ghostluvme will be one to watch over the coming months.

Albums | cozy kev Teases Heavier Sound With Incredible New Single “Holy Rain”

Posted by on October 25, 2022

cozy kev is a Chicago-based producer taking listeners on a celestial journey through sound by blending together elements of ethereal future bass, shadowy hip-hop beats, and raw electronic trap. His new track “HOLY RAIN” is a great introduction to his music if you have not yet heard it, so tune in to the song above now and read a quote from cozy kev on the release after the jump!

“The first drop was really intended to make you feel cool. I thought of riding through a city with the top down, just feeling myself haha. The second drop was made to intensify the emotion of the song and really just summarize the whole idea as a constant buildup into that second drop. It gets heavier as well, as I’m trying to show people that I’m gradually getting into a heavier style of music.”  – cozy kev

Albums | Rapper Austin Fox ? Returns With New Album SCORIAN VALLEY

Posted by on October 22, 2022

Virginia rapper Austin Fox ? has returned with his brand-new album, SCORIAN VALLEY. The 15-track project follows his Ranger396v album, which was released last year to a great reception. Featuring a rugged boom-bap sound with some funky neo-jazz elements intertwined with lo-fi beats and Austin’s smooth rap flow, the album is a must-hear and delves into issues surrounding betrayal that can occur with those closest to you when striving for success. As seen in several of the track titles, fire is the theme of SCORIAN VALLEY (derived from the word “scoria”, which is a volcanic rock).

Elaborating further, Austin says, “SCORIAN VALLEY is the next instalment in my discography and my most exciting project to date. The story continues with my point of view as I journey down the rabbit hole of my pursuit of musical independence within the industry. Since the journey began, it seems like things have started to ‘heat up’ and thus where the fire analogy sort of began. As the album progressed, I wanted to hit a few pockets that I have been leaving out of my music, notably singing and harmonising. The tape promotes the ideals of being content with yourself and learning how to ‘harness the flame’ that can be hard to hold in times of envy and competition.”

The album’s focus track, “Relatives”, features rising UK rapper/producer Tony Bontana, who produced several tracks on the album. The track touches on self-alignment and learning to harness the energy within oneself and is reminiscent of artists such as MF DOOM. Speaking further on the track, Austin says, “‘Relatives’ is a statement on surrounding yourself with those who have your back and are in your best interest. It’s about dealing with that trauma of betrayal from those closest to you.”

Albums | Jachym Borax Shares New Album OSTENTATIOUS STRUGGLES WITH MONOGAMY

Posted by on October 20, 2022

Jachym Borax is an eccentric yet highly detail-oriented rapper/producer, who burst on the scene earlier this year with his debut album, DRUG INDUCED PYSCHOSIS. The rising Los Angeles-based artist presents a nuanced take on trap music by creating genre-bending conceptual albums that are heavily psychologically charged, presenting his flaws and vulnerabilities unapologetically through his unique production and vocal style. 

Keeping the momentum rolling following the release of his debut album back in June, Jachym has just unveiled his scintillating new album, OSTENTATIOUS STRUGGLES WITH MONOGAMY, which is led by new single, “THREE 6’0 B******”. Standing out with Jachym’s versatile rap flow, candid lyricism rooted in heartbreak and infectious hooks, the album shines the spotlight on a talented new artist with a huge future ahead. A 10-track conceptual album best consumed in its entirety, it starts off in the midst of a relationship and is a fascinating listen from start to finish. 
Elaborating further on the new single and album, Jachym says, “This single serves a very specific role within the context of the album. It’s a story of heartbreak and flawed people interacting with each other. This song in particular provides a dichotomy. It’s not a one-dimensional song and provides both sides of a certain type of lifestyle. It captures the internal conflict of living a high lifestyle while being in a regular lifestyle. People can relate to the concept of heartbreak.” “THREE 6’0 B******” and the rest of the conceptual album are available to buy/stream now on all platforms: https://jachymborax.lnk.to/oswm.

Posted by on October 17, 2022

Just in time for the chilly weather of Fall, Los Angeles based artist Rjhoff has released a new single entitled “Love for the Summer” that most people will resonate with as I’m typing this due to the fact snow is coming soon and cold weather is on the radar for the foreseeable future. His new indie pop jam is a great introduction to his music if you are not yet familiar. Written and produced by Rjhoff himself, it’s a special piece of music that deserves your attention so be sure to check it out above now. Read a quote on the release below now!

‘love for the summer’ is an anthem for rebound relationships. Conflicts often cause us to act in crazy ways, but these moments of honest self-discovery are some of the greatest moments in life. The highs and lows can be hard to handle, but keeping an honest dialogue with ourselves can help us take the actions necessary to grow past any low moment, even if we’re simply looking for a temporary distraction from our feelings.”

Albums | mithrilblue Drops New Track “GET WITH YOU”

Posted by on October 15, 2022

mithrilblue is the experimental bedroom pop project created by William Bucker, who has devised a quite unique path to get to where he is today. Starting off initially as a rapper and inspired by the likes of Kid Cudi and pop rap act Jon Bellion, the Portland based artist started rapping in HS and has evolved a lot since then. While he is a new artist to me I was thoroughly impressed by his new track, “GET WITH YOU”. The song is a chilled and dreamy self described ‘trip-pop’ single that holds so many different angles and delicate moments throughout. Love his hybrid-ness on this one, showing off both his singing and rapping ability. Check out “GET WITH YOU” by mithrilblue above now and keep him on your radar.

Albums | Are We Hunting return via “California Kurt Cobain”

Posted by on October 15, 2022

One of the more interesting song titles I’ve read in a long while comes in through Are We Hunting, the moniker of Northern California based singer/songwriter, Ryan Ayala. After releasing his debut album in 2020, he is finally back with new music. Taking a cinematic approach to his craft, Ayala loves to write as the narrator of a script, and channels this energy into a lovely blend of indie and shoegaze, full of chorus drenched guitars and an ambient, full band sound. While this is the first piece of music I’ve heard by the upcoming artist, I plan to keep him on my radar as this piece of music is truly something special. Check it out above now!
