DISCOVER NEW MUSIC EVERYDAY

  


'STEP RIGHT IN' is a new single from hip hop-rapper by the name  A.K.A. THE TRUTH. This vibrant jam has a fresh and upbeat feel, that is brimming with jovial vibes. 

The song is creatively structured, with a range of vocal effects being employed to transform the track into a dreamlike, rhythmic collage. It’s complex and well-choreographed. I’m not sure how the artists managed to stay on point with the timing with every note hit.

Overall, the mix is full and powerful. Competent production blends with genuinely good music to make this jam a worthwhile release.


I expect we’ll be seeing more releases from A.K.A. The Truth. There’s a lot of enthusiasm and initiative here.


Press play right now:

Definitely an artist you should keep your eyes on. Listen to Boba Fett right now and discover Easy Grimm in 7 questions below. 


1.Tell us about your new song? And what’s the story behind it? 

First things first, i'm a huge star wars nerd. I was just making music in my basement studio and came across the beat on youtube. Ended up writing and recording it in like 20 minutes or something.


2.What makes your music unique? And how would you describe it? 

I started making music with FL studio when I was 14, and made a lot of EDM and dubstep songs. I was super into all that for a while. When I started creating what you hear today, I feel like because of my history, there are a lot of elements of different genres incorporated into my songs. I don't like to stick to one sound because i think the possibilities are endless when it comes to creation. stay open-minded. 

3.Which is the best moment in your musical career that you’re most proud of? 

The moment I'm most proud of so far would probably be helping my friends figure out this music thing. As much as I love my own craft, I also love seeing my friends do things they never thought they were capable of. It's a magical thing when you are in the moment and you listen to the result of what was made and its super hype. 

4.How do you balance your music with other obligations – family, friends or work? 

I work graveyard shifts so my sleep schedule is super fucked up all the time. It kind of works for me though because when the world is sleeping, I'm grinding on music. Nobody can bother me and I like that. Outside of music I always make an effort to see my family and do fun bonding stuff. My friends are amazing and I keep my circle close. Recently I've had to cut a lot of toxic people out of my life and I've been way more focused ever since. 

5.What advice would you give to aspiring musicians? 

My advice to all the young artists out there would be to never doubt yourself. Surround yourself with people who will always be honest with you and have your best interest in mind. Cut the excuses and bullshit. I've known people who have always had an excuse up their sleeve for why they haven't made any progress in their career. it's a waste of time and will never get you anywhere. Stay focused and live life. Don't sit around watching youtube all day, do something. The creativity will come if you let it. 

6.If you had one message to give to your fans, what would it be? 

We all go through the same shit, it's okay to cry. Don't carry pain around because you are never going to heal. Confide in good friends or family. Don't Idolize anyone, be yourself. 

7.What’s next for you? Any upcoming projects?

Going to continue releasing new music and videos over the course of the next year, and I have a project in the works. Lots of different sounds I'm working on right now and I can't wait for you all to hear. thank you


OUR INTERVIEW WITH EASY GRIMM FOR HIS NEW RELEASE “BOBA FETT”


Captivating and outstanding, here are two words that come to mind when you listen to the first note of “LOST  IT ALL”, by WILLV, a Colorado  Artist, Singer, and Rapper.

Willv's new single is arguably one of his best, defining his sound with a sense of control and confidence that bolsters his already impressive lofi style. Opening with a smooth, but undeniably ensnaring sound, ‘Lost it all’ delivers a deft stream of melodic beats that shine with a unique, wonderfully cultivated lightness. It’s a rhythmic and engaging piece, and as the vocals fade into view, the song evolves into a golden strand of brilliance.


Adding to the weight of the track, Willv's flow is simply unstoppable, and he delivers every bar with perfect accuracy, laying down a fresh line of rhymes that shine amongst the instrumentals. 


There’s so much to enjoy about ‘LOST IT ALL’, that it’s better left experienced than just read about, and there’s no better way to do that than to dive into the single alongside on playing the track by clicking on the Spotify link below.



SONG OF THE DAY " LOST IT ALL" BY WILLV



We were thrilled to meet with Antoni to discuss his musical journey.

Press play on “Racks Calling” and read our full interview with the artist.


1.Tell us about your new song? And what’s the story behind it?

My latest song “Racks Calling” was the last single I released before I started working on my new project, it features a catchy hook that promotes other cultures as well as telling a story of how people will change up on you once they see you reached the point you wanted to be at. 


2.What makes your music unique? And how would you describe it?

What makes my music unique is that no record I ever do ever sounds like my last record, which isn’t intentional but rather how I make music in general in regards to what my mood is at the moment in time. 

3.Which is the best moment in your musical career that you’re most proud of?

I’m most proud of the whole journey I took to get to where I am in this point in time, from having to wait hours to audition to the xFactor / The Voice in my early stages of my career when I was just writing my own records with no listeners to now finding my own lane and cultivating a following all across the globe and having other people relate to your songs is really the best moment every single time. 

4.How do you balance your music with other obligations – family, friends or work?

I balance it by making music one of my main priorities and setting goals for myself to help push myself to where I want to be and being selective with how I spend my time. 


5.What advice would you give to aspiring musicians?

The best advice I can honestly give is to never give up on yourself or your craft if this is what your passion is, not everyone travels the same road to success and not everyone has the same time-frame. You’ll get to where you want to be if you keep striving to do better. 



6.If you had one message to give to your fans, what would it be?

Thank you for sticking with me so far. This is only the beginning 


7.What’s next for you? Any upcoming projects?

I’m planning to release my first project called “No Promises” in early May - June that will feature different types of sounds and will feature limited merch alongside with the project with all profits being donated to St Judes Children Hospital

OUR INTERVIEW WITH ANTONI FOR HIS NEW RELEASE “RACKS CALLING”

 

Viava is another exciting up-and-coming producer that fits in the electronic lane.

His latest offering Nighlife” is both energetic and captivating as the artist blends EDM with House music to create a banger that will make you dance all day.

We know the beat drop is coming. About one minute in, a hard and heavy Industrial groove takes shape. Ancillary percussion fills the periphery. Through the course of the track, the beat intensifies and then retreats into ethereal arpeggios and cinematic synths and strings. It is a dynamic groove with a bass that will shake your bones. 

It’s no secret that a beautiful song has the power to take you to a parallel universe, surrounded by good feelings. On a grey day in the week, when you need to set the tone, some artists are able to spread energy and positivity in your soul. “NIGHLIFE”, by Indian-based electro-funk Viava has this power for our greatest delight. 


VIAVA DELIVERS EXCELLENT NEW SINGLE “NIGHLIFE"



Talent and success at a young age can be a blessing and a curse. It’s easy for the age of a young artist to outshine the actual reason they’ve gotten where they’re at. 21-year old producer who is making his name ring bells. Jordan Knows is that talent, he isn’t your ordinary producer either. The high-caliber ability he has behind the boards is unbelievable. He’s produced for thekidszn multiple times and many more well-versed artists. His age does not live up to the experiences he has endured. We talked about the ups and downs in his life, his background in music, and much more below.



1.Tell us about your new song? And what’s the story behind it?


After my first release “wassup?” I thought it was time to release a new catchy song with a hook of thekidszn on it. Was stuck with this idea in my head of making an emo drill song. I wanted it to be different from the melodic sad trap songs but at the same time also the fresh/harder sound that drill gives. That's how I came up with the combination. I send the beat to thekidszn, a few hours later I received his vocals back after I started to look who’s voice would really fit the song. Brandon thakidd really killed that verse. The rest was history!



2.What makes your music unique? And how would you describe it?


I am involved within every part of the song process, from the loop, recording with the artists to the final mastering of the song. I really want to have everything the way I would like to listen to the song, cause If I really like it there will probably be more people that like it. Also, I think because I’m from Europe I really got influenced by a lot of different styles. We listen to afro/Latin/European & American songs over there.




3.Which is the best moment in your musical career that you’re most proud of?


Every time I can give an artist one of his better releases/songs it gives me the feeling that I’m really doing a good job and add something to the artists career. That makes me proud



4.How do you balance your music with other obligations – family, friends or work?


Right now there is not a lot of family involved in my life because of all the work and traveling I do. I really miss them, but they know what I am trying to achieve. The same with friends, the people who I work with became my friends. But my actual real friends that I grew up with all study or live away different life from what I have right now, they don’t really care about all the music stuff. They are just there for me and that's what I really appreciate about them. 


 

5.What advice would you give to aspiring musicians?


Just try to have fun with what you do and who you do it with, set goals & take that first step! You don’t need a label or management to get in contact with artists & producers these days. You can create your own job & network thru the internet.



6.If you had one message to give to your fans, what would it be?


It is weird for me to realize that I have fans now that click on every song when It just dropped, I am so blessed to have you guys really like my music and support me in every way you all are doing. I wish I could meet all of them, hopefully, one day I will so I can thank them for what I have right now!



7.What’s next for you? Any upcoming projects?


There is an EP coming up produced by me for thekidszn and also one for Lxst. Besides that I am also dropping songs with big artists over there where I come from in The Netherlands, I can’t say too much about it yet. But I expect things to be really big! I won’t forget about my US releases tho. I have a song coming up with a lot of features on it, a DJ Khaled type of anthem but in a Jordan Knows vibe ofcourse! 

OUR INTERVIEW WITH JORDAN KNOWS FOR HIS NEW RELEASE “SO WRONG”



Our discovery of the day goes by the name of Dylhutch and he is on our list of the top 2021 creative artists. thanks to his latest offering: a single entitled “Paradise”. You should listen to it right now! 

We were thrilled about this release that we waited for many months and were not disappointed. He shows a bit of a softer and lighthearted side here, while still keeping the action fresh and lively. An impressive and versatile rapper on his own, he also makes use of some trippy vocal effects that give the song an experimental, ethereal edge, truly in the spirit of a DIY  project.

His jams often feature exquisite and ambient beats, fronted by passionate and expressive vocals. The sound is ethereal and the vibe is inspirational. You can tell he really puts his heart into creating and performing these jams

There’s a lot of artistic versatility here, and plenty of creative variety in his catalog, as Dylhutch is something of a jack of all trades. We don’t even have the words, you just need to listen by yourself, loud and on repeat:
