Asia Graves Fires Off Her New EP, ‘If You Knew Better’

Published

on

Asia Graves is the quintessential girl next door. The Atlanta-based songstress is nowhere near her prime, but she is genuinely making veteran moves in this industry. Her newest United Masters distributed EP, If You Knew Better, is the perfect precursor for her debut album. Clocking in at 14 minutes with six tracks, If You Knew Better is a soulful project perfect for the forthcoming fall weather. With cuffing season around the corner, relationships will form, and some will fall out. As a young 20-something-year-old woman finding her way through life, Asia’s music is refreshingly relatable. After time in college and now years in the industry, she has seen it all regarding men. 

If You Knew Better is as well put together and succinct as you can get for an R&B project. The seamless transitions between the soulful tracks make the listening experience just as beautiful as the ATL songstress herself. Furthermore, Grave’s has decided to pair it with a full-length mini-movie if the project was not enough. The Overdose Studios-directed/shot visualizer helps tell the story that all six tracks were attempting to convey. Her latest EP features production from AVBClint FordSangria, and Cee B The Producer mixed it in its entirety. She and her decorated team at The UCMG went crazy from the sequencing to the sound and beats. 

Tracks like “Long Distance,” “Feel A Way,” and “Blame” show Asia is evolving right before our eyes. Moreover, the range of her voice and her soulful tone is steps above her previous work. After winning the first Audiomack STAMPED Contest, Asia has been in the lab. She and her team decided to use the pandemic to truly settle down and lock into the next steps of her career. Asia Graves is a gem and has next-level star potential if she keeps going on the path that she is on now. Moreover, her trajectory is limitless, and If You Knew Better is just the proof. 

Please take a listen to her latest EP on all streaming platforms and check out the full-length visualizer here below!

Houston, Texas Native Mike Atlas looks to go worldwide with his new single “Graveyard Story.” With his lethal and melodic sound, he looks to inspire many throughout the world, showing that anything is possible through his hard work and dedication. This lyrical nightmare is inspired by some of the greats. (Michael Jackson, Tupac Shakur, Kendrick Lamar, to name a few).

2021 was a hard year for the independent artist. Losing two of his closest friends and biggest supporters through his journey was tough, but added more fuel to his fire and desire. “I feel they driving me to a higher purpose with my talents to truly live out my dream not only for them but myself.” Through his strength and determination the Houston rapper looks to make his mark in 2022 after a rough 2021.

Pluggworld Drops Anticipated Album, ‘Tug of War’

Published

By

LA based music group Pluggworld is ready for the world to hear their newest album “Tug of War”. This will be the bands fifth album, already making moves with two singles: “Chick Filet” and “Show & Tell”  which received over one million views on Worldstar and over a quarter of a million views on Youtube, respectfully. Pluggworld offers a fresh and raw perspective to live instruments in hop hop, as well as the fusion of various styles and genres within their work. As far as their latest body of work, Pluggworld describes their album as being “a sonic journey through our experience maneuvering and making our way in LA trying to get money and dealing with relationships and women issues. The tug of war is money and success pulling for our time on one side, and the relationships and love pulling us on the other side.” Pluggworld is proud of their skill and very excited to share their newest album with the world.

Q: What inspired your Band name? 

A: Pluggworld , we want to connect people to the source. Also in the studio there were always plugs everywhere due to the various instruments we play and the equipment we use and amps, etc. So the name just kinda fit.

Q: What genre of music do you produce and what is your favorite to produce? 

A: We make music from several different genres, primarily Hip Hop, Soul, Rock, and R&B. We often like to fuse these styles into one song, that’s probably our favorite thing to do. It’s like cooking, and creating new recipes.

Q:  How would you describe your sound/style?

A: Our sound can be described as Vibey. We love to incorporate the heavy low-end and percussions of modern Hip Hop, and then layer lush guitar chords on top, then we finish off with undeniable vocal melodies. We play instruments, so that’s something we like to highlight in our music as well. Whether that be guitar, bass, keys or Saxophone. Also, when it comes to rapping, we do it at the highest level.

Q: In your opinion, what makes you stand out from other/current producers out there?

A: Other artists in hip hop right now, don’t play guitar and rap and produce. They usually have to call in a guitarist, we don’t. We also are able to maneuver between different genres seamlessly. You’ll hear that on the project. You could go from a banger to a ballad the next song, and it doesn’t feel out of place.

The album “Tug of War” is available on all streaming services.
