Adam Ness Impresses With Silky New Single “Houzkatz” Featuring Durand Bernarr

Published

on

When it comes to the silky-smooth sounds of Neo Soul, there are no finer artists than Adam Ness. Raised in Detroit but now based in Chicago, he is the epitome of a fully-formed talent who is intricate, refined and simply sublime. He’s back with new music, and this time he delivered “Houzkatz” with talented R&B artist Durand Bernarr. The song is a masterpiece and puts Ness’ talents on full display.

Benefitting from an education in Gospel, the lush sounds that tug at the emotional heart strings gave him the building blocks to pursue a career that is delivering music of the highest quality. Touching people on both a spiritual and musical level, he has uniquely developed a style that sits comfortably alongside artists like Frank Ocean, D’Angelo, Maxwell and the eternally brilliant Erykah Badu.

Lush harmonies, deep grooves, inspirational lyrics and fresh perspectives await the audience as Adam delivers on every single promise he has ever made. Destroying stereotypical storylines with his sumptuous songs, he is building on his first critically acclaimed album released in 2019 titled ‘Sagittarius Volume 1’.

Completing the emotional circle, ‘Sagittarius Volume 2’ is about Adam’s journey through young adulthood and a testament to an artist led by the flames of desire. Meticulously crafted with exquisite touches, the album is a clear example of why he sells out venues in Chicago and beyond.

With nearly a million plays on Spotify alone, audiences are beginning to take serious note of Adam Ness as his music is undeniably spreading the positive message the world needs right now. His humility and burning desire to share a message of love, peace and hope transcends the every day challenges that people endure. There is so much beauty in his work that it is hard to imagine a future without it.

“It’s ok to be yourself and get the things you’re deserving of. Being soft doesn’t diminish your power. It elevates and inspires.”

Roya1 Is Setting The Tone For What To Expect This Summer With ‘Nasty’ EP

Published

on

By


In a recent interview with producer and artist Roya1, the music architect talks about his latest EP titled NASTY, his ambitions to grow beyond The Bay, his musical beginnings and more.

Featured by publications such as Thizzler, a multi-cultural media outlet and thought leader from The Bay, over quarter million subscribers on his You Tube handle, to placements with established acts such as rapper Mozzy – Bay Area bred music man Roya1 or YR Beats to some, is steadily becoming a force to reckon with in the game.

“I was born in Fresno CA but I mostly grew up in the Bay area between Pittsburg CA and Richmond CA practically my whole upbringing. I was about 15 years old when I even considered the thought about making music” he tells us.

Growing up in a middle-income home, the progressive producer “in love with sounds” as he describes, intimating his influences stem from growing up listening to R&B, Neo Soul, Jazz and Hip Hop personally inspiring him and his sound palette.

Not only did music generally help him carve his craft out, he shares music has sufficiently served him being a tool for therapy, a hobby that helped keep him out of trouble, and acted as a safe space for him to dwell in.

“I’m obsessed with sounds when it comes to music, competing with myself is one of the things that keep me inspired as well as finding new good music” he shares. “Music kept me out of trouble a lot of the time growing up, it’s my therapy and my safe place ‘til this day.

 In the wake of his self-realization at just age 15, he has honed his skills gradually and has scored multiple accolades across the board including producing underground hits such as Bankroll Raedoe’s “559 Baby” that recently surpassed 1 million views on You Tube alone.

Such milestones are riling him up, helping his notable beat tag gain further traction and notoriety, simultaneously granting him credibility as a music producer in a competitive industry such as the music business. But much like mainstream names like Kanye, like Pierre Bourne, like dare we say Russ, or olders in Pharrell or Dre – he is more than that. He is a jack of all trades; recording & vocals engineer among a plethora of roles, and with relative success behind the boards he will introduce himself as an artist through his latest project Nasty EP — out now.

 “This project is about embracing the sensual side of things; love, passion and pleasure” he elaborates.

“I just wanted to show the real me with this project, I plan to get a lot of female fans from this.”

Roya1 admittedly concedes he is a flirt, and this vulnerability is a side he finds comfort in sharing in his art on this project, so we should expect a lot of soft, fuzzy, honest and sexually pleasant music as a concrete direction.

As he embarks on this transcending journey, Roya1 also notes there has been a stark growth to his craftsmanship as far as production, and the goal is to continue extensively applying himself into “musician” levels.

“The simple fact that I’ve evolved into making beats, engineering vocals, and getting into acoustics etc I wanna set the bar of being a one man versatile musician”

Toronto’s AD22 Drops Off “Night Shift”

Published

on

By

AD22, a promising Toronto rookie, has released his new track “Night Shift,” which is available now.

His single “Night Shift” follows his “Oasis Interlude,” a little uptempo dance song with his easygoing vocals and piercing lyrics that pervade our hearts and brains quickly raising racy thoughts and sensations irrevocably.

His most recent offering, on the other hand, comes with the promise that “this will usher in a new era” for him and his audience, as the Egypt-born artist declares.

“(Night Shift is) an introduction to an AD22 that is more vulnerable and honest.” ‘Night Shift’ is the first of a new series of songs from AD22 in which he speaks up about suppressed previous traumas.

“Night Shift” marks a significant shift in direction for AD22 in terms of context and sound, and listeners are in for a treat when they hear it.

“In terms of instrumentation, lyrical matter, and intensity, ‘Night Shift’ marks the beginning of a new era, “According to AD22. “This single is basically about broadening the variety of listeners, being able to appeal to a wider audience, and gently peeling back the layers to reveal who AD22 is.”

Toronto has it all, from the larger-than-life OVO roster to underground emoters Ramriddlz, producer Stwo, Frank Dukes, juggernaut and multi-platinum producer Boy1da, River Tiber, and frontal mega superstars The Weeknd and Justin Bieber, and their latest star-in-the-making is none other than reserved impassioned record producer and songwriter, AD22.

The music mogul’s razor-like voice cuts through the soothing and euphoric ambient instrumentals as he spews passionate tales about his past, goals, and a slew of love-themed poems strewn across the dark, wintery, and snuggly chords.

So far, he’s been able to put out a catalog of impressive records like “High Fashion,” “Vibe With Me,” “Till We Die,” and “Down For You,” which have helped him build a fan base, and as grateful as he is, his eyes are set on the future as he aspires to be as big as his idols like Jay Z, Nipsey Hussle, Drake, and UK’s Santan Dave, with whom he’s met

“I’m an avid listener,” he says. “I enjoy listening to music from a lot of different genres.”

“I’ve found that listening to genres outside of the context of the music I make is both stimulating and a good way to keep my individuality,” she says “He keeps going. “Jay Z, Nipsey Hussle, Drake, and Santan Dave, who I had the pleasure of meeting and who offered me with inspiring advice, were some of my significant influences that motivated me to pursue music.”

Look out for his “Night Shift” single, which will further cement his place among the greats, despite the fact that he is still in the early phases of his highly anticipated career. The song will take us on an endless journey of what it means to be “on the grind.”

“It’s about capturing the energy of what a typical night out for me is like. It is a combination of different stages throughout my life, reflecting on times where I would work long hours throughout the night, making records, making money. Through the mellow, calm sound that encompasses me as an artist, I created a record that people who always strive to achieve more can relate to. In simple terms, ‘Night Shift’ is inspired by the grind.”
