Hip-Hop, Rap | San Williams – Really Good To Me (ft. Eyukaliptus)

Posted by on May 6, 2014

The other day I premiered to you Daye Jack, a young Atlanta kid who moved to New York to pursue his dream of music. Today I have the newest from San Williams, a young gun of a similar story. San has been putting out music from a while now, but he seems to be finally finding his voice.

“Really Good To Me” is a vulnerable record oozing with emotion in the short one verse that he spits. Accompanied with the production from high school phenomenon, Eyukaliptus, the song pulls at the heartstrings as San depicts himself and his lady running away together.

Freestyle, Hip-Hop, Rap | Vonny del Fresco – Studies

Posted by on February 19, 2014

Vonny del Fresco is fresh off the release of his After the Fall EP and decided to keep his fans on their toes with a short burst of music. “Studies” is a minute long freestyle/video that oozes energy and takes you on an robotic-sounding ride. The song was originally produced by Mr. Carmack, a name that is becoming increasingly popular in hip-hop production, and del Fresco decided to give the new-school production wave a spin with some sharp rhymes penetrating the already complex instrumental.

Exclusive, Featured, Interviews | Oliver Heldens Talks Evolution, Beard Care, Upcoming Productions and More (FNT Exclusive)

Holland made its way onto the global dance music scene with dutch house and then trance. It soon, alongside Sweden, became one of the powerhouse nations for dance music. In 2014 there is a new sound emanating from its cloudy, flat and rainy populace, something deeper and more groove driven, the sound that Oliver Heldens is bringing to the world.

The 18 year old had an abrupt change in sound at the end of 2013, going from a harder, electro sound to the current, “big room deep house” style that adds energy and style to a genre that can be flat and monotonous at times (yes some deep house can be boring). His career has exploded since then with the release of “Gecko” on Musical Freedom, first unveiled as an “ID” tune, an idea he loves, and has landed him the high-profile remix for Martin Garrix’s “Animals” and acclaim and support from DJs across all genres. He is set to blow up this year and we were able to ask him a few questions about his change in style, ghost producing, labels marketing songs as “IDs” and much more. Read on for the interview.

Brooklyn producer Blackedout releases “Vessel” the second single off his forthcoming sophomore EP. “Vessel” is a memorizing track  which includes a progressive buildup, layered with chopped high pitched vocals that will transport your soul and bring out bitter-sweet emotions, like that old school Mariah Carey, except this is house music. “Vessel” is a dream and an experience, the more I listen to it the more I can’t help but feel touched by it’s warmth and beauty. It’s Monday and everything’s going to be okay, this is hands down a must listen!
