MUSIC RECORDING ARTIST 'YEVAE' TALKS NEW ALBUM RELEASE "UNCHAINED" AND MORE!

International sensation Yevae tackles tough topics with catchy electro-pop grooves


LISTEN TO THE PODCAST BELOW!

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Electronic-tinged jazz and blues riffs with deeply meaningful lyrics and an attractive international sound have been making their way to the world from Yevae for years. The Ukrainian-American singer blends an eclectic mix of mesmerizing vocals, pulsing electronic rhythms and memorable melodies with a message of uplifting positivity. And her latest music is created with a purpose of empowering and helping everyone to realize their strengths, to gain confidence, and to find a sense of independence through music. 


Yevae’s nine-song album “Unchained” is slated to drop later this year, but already four songs from the project have been released. And now a fifth song, “Free Me,” is coming to the world. With its release, this electropop artist shows how she’s using her music to start a conversation about mental health issues, suicide prevention, social justice and women’s rights. She has a new way of raising uncomfortable topics and delivering heavy messages with the help of modern dance music. Music lovers and electronic dance fans will definitely find her sound and style attractive and want to dive more deeply into her records.


“I have a deep and theatrical sound with an electronic mix of music and beats that fuses in the jazz and blues techniques of my voice,” Yevae said. “I really love jazz and blues, but I also really love electronic music and have wanted to mix those things together for years. Also, all of the lyrics I write actually have meaning. I get so tired of songs on the radio today that make the English language sound very poor. That’s influencing the masses in negative ways. I want to elevate that and put some meaning behind the words I’m choosing to use. With ‘Free Me’ I’m talking about a girl who understands she has been in a dysfunctional relationship for quite a while, and when she realizes how much the relationship has drained her – physically and mentally – she decides it’s time to get away from it. I want it to be a song that serves as a message to other people who might be going through something like that. I want all of my music to be about empowering people. No matter what you’re going through at the moment, there’s always a light at the end of the path. Keep pushing. It’s OK to feel whatever you’re feeling right now, but have hope.”


Born and raised in the Ukraine, Yevae moved to the U.S. as a young adult. She diligently built a career in the tech industry, but when her father passed away in 2019 she decided to follow her heart and pursue her passion for music. Over the past two years she’s developed her signature style while building an international audience of fans that are eager for more and more music from her. In coming months she plans to release another song from her upcoming album called “Breathe,” which continues the conversation of mental health.

HIP HOP RECORDING ARTIST 'TROY REMEDY' RETURNS TO TALK ABOUT HIS NEW SINGLE "NEXT TO YOU" AND MORE!

Troy Remedy Shows Elegance With Soulful Single “Next To You”


LISTEN TO THE PODCAST BELOW!
!

For Troy Remedy, to live is to endure. Life makes for an uphill climb. One must claw and scrape to gain even a morsel of advantage. When in need of solace, Troy Remedy turns to music. “Music has always been an element to some of the things that have happened around me,” said Troy Remedy. “When you're in a bad spot, in a bind, mentally stuck or trying to find your way through the maze. music has always been there.”  


Troy’s fresh lyrical delivery and organic production hearkens back to the days of old but with a bold new twist. His songs burrow down into the heart, revealing concealed pain and sorrow. “My professors taught me the method,” said Troy. “I took the lessons that they taught me and I had to show my own version of it. And in my own style. I take great pride in the production side of things.”


Troy brings listeners his own lesson in the form of the rich, soulful new track “Next To You.” The song sees Troy Remedy collaborating with singer (and fellow Texan) Molly May Rockwell. “I created the harmonies and wrote all the lyrics,” Troy explained. “I tried to find a distinctive voice that fits this type of song.” “Next To You” sees Troy Remedy reminiscing on romance and regret. “It’s about the kind of enjoyment that you have when you meet somebody,” said Troy. “But also the missed opportunities that come with that. The realization that you did have something good but you let it slip away.” 


Regarding Molly May Rockwell’s sultry vocal harmonies on “Next To You,” Troy said, “she did exceptionally well!” The music video for “Next To You” features Troy and Molly performing in what appears to be a local jazz lounge. “[Molly] added some grace and elegance with her performance,” Troy recollected. “Everybody from the Randy McGill band to acclaimed saxophonist Andrew Landell did a spectacular job!” 


Fans of Troy Remedy’s “Next To You” have time to brush up on his other singles while he records new material. His emotive, moving song “Gratitude” features guest vocals from hiphop legend Bizzy Bone. “I felt like all the stars aligned with that song,” Troy Remedy remembered. “Everything from the beat to the video. I just felt like everything came into place perfectly.” Troy recalled feeling the pressures of being an independent artist reaching out to an established veteran. “That’s a serious conversation you have with yourself. You’ve got to ask, ‘Are you capable of doing this? I personally feel we did a great job with the finished product and were able to meet the challenge.” 


Anyone who enjoys “Next To You” won’t have to wait long. Troy Remedy revealed that he has 2 upcoming singles in the works. “Temperatures Rising” and “Lost The Flame” that will both be released later this year. Troy also announced that he is currently booking live shows. He will perform at Texas’ independent music festival, Loudfest, in December.

HIP HOP RECORDING ARTIST 'DAZ PAYNE' STOPS BY AND TALKS ABOUT HIS NEW SINGLE "RICH BOY TRAP" AND MORE!

Daz Payne blends underground rap vibes with R&B approach on upbeat new hit ‘Rich Boy Trap’


LISTEN TO THE PODCAST BELOW!

LOS ANGELES, CA – Daz Payne is a veteran artist who is introducing a new spin of sound and style that music lovers around the world have been familiar with for years. His mix of Trap, traditional rap and a more underground hip-hop vibe contrasts in intriguing ways against a smooth R&B approach, and the end result is a truly original take on music. If you’re a fan of artists such as The Weeknd, Bruno Mars, or Anderson Paak, you’ll love what Daz Payne is bringing to the table. 


His latest single “Rich Boy Trap” is a perfect example of this signature style. Described as a vibe that feels a bit like the popular Netflix series “Black Mirror” mentality, the song explores what it takes to stay centered when there are a lot of distractions going on in life. 


“It’s a response to my life now,” Payne said. “I have a new daughter who is 11 months old and doesn’t always sleep through the night. I wrote this song late at night when I was frustrated and had sleep deprivation. I channeled that energy into this song. It’s pretty upbeat with a good dance tempo, and the lyrics blend pretty well. It’s the kind of song that makes you want to go to the club and just put your head in a drink and have some fun.”


The title of the song comes from an idea that Payne has been exploring for the past couple of years. Compared to where he used to be in his life, he’s now doing well financially with a strong family life and stability. He’s an artist who has transitioned out of the streets and now has a more legitimate situation. He’s making money as an entrepreneur which is where the Rich Boy name comes in. But with more money comes more problems … it’s a trap, so to speak. The name of the song, therefore, serves as a warning to himself and others not to let ego run away out of control.


Originally from Fort Worth, Texas, Payne initially set his sights on playing in the NFL. He played cornerback for Army at West Point until a devastating knee injury and the sudden death of his father saw him transfer to the University of Houston and ultimately ended his football career. The experience unlocked his new life mission: to become the world’s biggest superstar. 


“I always felt I had a special talent for making music,” he said. “God gave me a gift that I wasn’t using at all. My father’s passing was like a wake-up call. I couldn’t waste another moment.”

FLYGHT CLUB STOPS BY AND TALKS LATEST SINGLE 'OLIVIA' AND MORE CURRENT PROJECTS!

International artist Shauvik Sharan explores diverse range of sounds and styles with new single ‘Olivia’


LISTEN TO THE PODCAST BELOW

LOS ANGELES, CA – A contemporary music project that has its origins in India and has fully bloomed through the influences of American Pop Culture is making its way to the masses from up-and-coming young artist Shauvik Sharan, AKA Flyght Club. His music prioritizes extreme versatility while showcasing a dynamic range over all the popular genres of today’s industry. Every song is made to cater to a different type of mood and emotion. 


His latest single is a song called “Olivia,” which will be available across all digital streaming platforms on March 30. The chill Indie-Pop vibe lays the foundation for a mellow yet uplifting song that displays the intense immediate infatuation one feels when meeting a stranger and instantly establishing a connection. The electronic elements beautifully convey the heat of the moment, while the melody justifies the impracticality of the situation and pairs perfectly with a beat that represents the strong, flowing anxiousness that accompanies such a moment. 


“The feeling of meeting a stranger and immediately seeing your possible significant other in them is so common yet so rare,” Sharan said. “I met a girl last year and fell head-over-heels for her in a very short period of time. There was just an instant sense of familiarity I felt with her, but it was too soon to tell anyone about it so I decided to make a song about it. Every song I write is different. I might want to talk about love at some point, and another song might be a social message. And every song I make caters to a different genre and audience. I’m extremely diverse and versatile with each song. One might be upbeat and Pop, the next one might be rap, the next one rock … you can never classify me into any one particular genre. It just depends on my mood when I’m creating. It’s that diversity of lyrics and style and singing that makes my sound so unique.”


Sharan grew up in Pune, India, and decided to move to Los Angeles about five years ago to pursue a career in music. His early influences in music were classic rock artists such as Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton and Pink Floyd, and it was because of them that he first picked up the guitar. He played for many years as a guitarist in bands in India, and eventually decided ot get into electronic music and start DJ-ing as the scene started growing in his city. After a couple years playing in rock bands and winning DJ competitions, Sharan decided to move to LA to test his skills in the hub of the music industry. It was there that he mastered the art of production and engineering, as well as singing and songwriting. This is what gave birth to “Flyght Club” – a name that is based on the concept of anyone who is trying to rise above the challenges of life and achieve their goals. Anyone who supports that vision of success is a member of the Flyght Club, he said.

HIP HOP RECORDING ARTIST 'KG KRIID' TALKS NEW SINGLE "SMOKIN" AND OTHER CURRENT PROJECTS

KG Kriid offers chill vibe for stress-filled audiences worldwide with new single ‘Smokin’


LISTEN TO THE PODCAST BELOW


MANSFIELD, OH – In Damarias Fuller’s, “Kriid” is a word that’s often on the tip of his lips. It’s a word his brother made up as a synonym for the moments in life when something is great. If he were to see some flowers on the side of the road, or if he was having a great day, they would be “Kriid” flowers or he’d be having a “Kriid” day. It’s a word that represents a way of life, and anyone who comes alongside him and embraces that way of life is part of his Kriid Gang. 


His music is the through-point of the Kriid Gang, and he inspires people all over the world with new sounds and styles born from a life of making music. His latest single, “Smokin’,” is a straight vibe ready-made to help people relieve stress and let loose at the end of a tough day.


“If you’re going through some stress or your stressed, just roll up and smoke your stress away,” KG Kriid said. “It’s like a spiritual song for people who stress out and go through hard times. It’s a song that just says, ‘Sit back and take a breather and relax and think about stuff.’ Inhale and exhale.”


The chill vibe of the song features some melodic undertones that serve as a perfect foundation for his equally chill vocals. It’s just the most recent example of how diverse he is as an artist. Over the course of his young career he’s shown the world how he can sing, rap, play the piano, mix and master, produce, compose, write, engineer, and just about anything else that one might associate with a career in the music industry. Chris Brown is his No. 1 inspiration, and he said he hopes to emulate the R&B legend’s career by creating songs that showcase his own “crazy vocals.” 




“I make positive, chill music,” he said. “I make music to help people to feel and understand there are other people going through the same things they’re going through. With my music, I can change others hopefully. Music is my everything, and I know how it can help others, too.”


Following “Smokin’,” KG Kriid said he’s already hard at work on an album called “Pain, which he expect to release later this year. He also recently released a video for “Smokin’,” which features fellow artist and his older brother, Tae Da Khid. KG Kriid has a feature on Tae Da Khid’s single “God’s Child,” as well.

HIP HOP RECORDING ARTIST "MADDI MADD" STOPS BY AND TALKS ABOUT HIS NEW SINGLE "ON READ" AND MORE!

 


MADDI MADD returns to ├╝ber-successful career with new hit single ‘On Read’

LISTEN TO THE PODCAST BELOW!

AKRON, OH – MADDI MADD is highly regarded as one of the top emcees in all of the Midwest. Hailing from the same hometown and NBA legend Lebron James, this internationally known juggernaut of hip-hop delivers superior metaphors laced with powered street anthems and lyrical content that’s proven time and time again to both inspire and challenge listeners of all ages and demographics. He has been shot but not stopped, imprisoned for his mission, surveilled and trailed, and he has a story that very few have lived to tell. 

His latest hit is a song called “On Read,” which is set to drop across all streaming platforms on April 9. It’s the first single off his forthcoming album “Success 2,” which should be released this June. Inspired by an interaction with legendary artist Rihanna (displayed on the cover art for his song), the single is a shout out to all the women of the world who don’t give good guys a chance.

“I sent (Rihanna) a DM and she looked at it and kept it pushing,” MADDI said with a laugh. “She left me on read. There are a lot of women out there we feel like we’d be a good match with and some aren’t taking that chance. They’re looking at the messages and not responding to them. I’m not one of those guys you shouldn’t respond to. You should respond. I have your best interest at heart. I’m not a weirdo just sending you random messages.”


As the first single off “Success 2,” MADDI said “On Read” is the perfect song to introduce a project that will touch on a little bit of everything. Though he’s been in the music industry for more than a decade, he had to take a bit of a hiatus due to circumstances beyond his control. He also lost more than $1 million of money invested into his craft and his own label, Blimpcity Records, due to a federal case that targeted people close to him. In his words, he was “too close to the fire not to get burned.” Those experiences put him in a different mindframe, he said, and directly led to the music he created on “Success 2.”

“I want to do music the way I want to do music,” he said. “Those experiences dampened the way I created music, and I didn’t like that I couldn’t execute my business to the fullest degree. Earlier in my career I had a lot of success. The first project I ever sold was 200,000-plus. I collaborated with a plethora of artists – Jodeci, Flo-Rida, Bizzy Bone from Bone Thugs N Harmony, Rah Digga, The Outsidaz, C-Bo … I was awarded with two five-time multi-platinum plaques for Flo-Rida’s ‘Whistle.’ But it’s been a long, hard road since then. I had to rediscover my fanbase, and with this new project I want people to understand that these are lyrics and this is a real album. It’s not just a bunch of singles slapped together. The subject matter all comes together as one movement. It’s an album full of substance. I’m a lyricist and a storyteller, and I focus on the artform. I’m not your everyday rapper. I’m someone who has depth to his lyrics. I want to bring that back to music, and I want this album to be something people can play 25 years from now.”

“On Read” will be available to stream across all digital platforms starting April 9. MADDI MADD will also be starting in a hip-hop horror film called “Rhyme Slaya” due to be released April 27. To listen to MADDI MADD’s music, or to follow him on social media, please visit the following links:
