JAZ ELISE RELEASES NEW VIDEO “RADIO” FROM HER DEBUT EP “THE GOLDEN HOUR”

Published

on

Jaz speaks on the inspiration behind the song: “Sometimes during this time period when we can’t be around someone who we have that emotional or intimate connection with, it can be frustrating. ‘Radio’ was my way of channeling those feelings. When push comes to shove we have to just let people know how we feel and what we want. It’s a fun and freeing song.”

In addition to “Radio,” Jaz delivers breezy confident melodies throughout her 7-track EP, whether it be the self-loving opener “Elevated” or her recently released hit Fresh & Clean” feat. GovanaThe singer also practices a positive mindset in order to execute the vision on Good Over Evil.” The latter part of The Golden Hour is filled with slow burns, allowing her soft sultry vocals and honest songwriting to float over spacious and thoughtful instrumentation. “After 3” is a cosmic exchange between her and rising singer Mortimer, and “Breathe” soothes the soul over light jazz and dub grooves. The EP’s infectious mix of beats are composed by a variety of In.Digg.Nation Collective’s go-to producers including IzyBeatsNatural HighJ.L.L., iotosh, Ziah .Push and Protoje.

Jaz Elise explains the deeper meaning behind The Golden Hour“Photographers speak of this peak, magical moment at sunrise and sunset where the sun casts a golden hue in the sky. Almost like earth and sky is just washed in this mood and feeling- this magic. This is known as the golden hour. The feelings and emotions that manifest for me when I’m looking at the sky during the golden hour is how I feel when listening to this EP and I want people to feel when listening to this body of work. To me it’s like this beautiful collection of feelings and moments. A mood, a meditation, a reflection and a vibe all in one. I have put my all in it. My dreams, my hopes, my feelings, my experiences, my vulnerabilities, my pain. Everything. I am looking forward to sharing these feelings and stories with people. You’re gonna hear the most personal music so far from me and none of it was possible without the other creative hands that came together to make this project possible.”

Jaz Elise is the newest member of In.Digg.Nation Collective’s roster, the record label and management company founded by Grammy-nominated artist Protoje. She joins Lila Iké, Sevana, and Protoje in the label’s joint venture with Six Course Music and RCA Records.

Key Glock Celebrates Glocktober With “Da Truth”

Published

on

By

It might seem like he exaggerates the extent of his flyness, but Key Glock only traffics in cold hard facts. Channeling Paul Pierce as he pulls up from center court, Key Glock shares Da Truth,” his latest single. Produced by rising trap sound architect Pyrex Whippa, “Da Truth” mixes entrancingly atmospheric keys with a relentless subwoofer assault. Sitting firmly in the pocket as he cuts through the beat’s ample negative space, Glock works a nursery rhyme-like cadence as he aims to silence those who doubt he’s one of the South’s best emcees: “Roses are red, violets are blue/I put money over b*tches, I don’t know bout you.” “Da Truth” is the latest flex-heavy banger to emerge in the lead-up to Yellow Tape 2Key’s next album, following the chaotic, Tay Keith-produced Ambition For Cash.

The follow-up to 2020’s Yellow Tapewhich peaked at #16 on the Billboard 200 and featured fan favorite songs like Dough,” ‘Word on the Streets,” and Look At They Face,Yellow Tape 2 finds the 24-year-old artist refining his style, unleashing tighter flows, delivering cleverer punchlines, and giving even fewer f*cks. Blessed with production from an A-List of sound architects including Tennessee legends Tay Keith (Memphis)Juicy J (Memphis), and Bandplay (Nashville), plus heavy-hitters from across the rap spectrum like Sosa 808Budda Bless, and more, the upcoming project finds Glock once again demonstrating why he’s one of the most respected lyricists in his city. The latest step in Glock’s fast rise to stardom, Yellow Tape 2 arrives later this fall via Paper Route EMPIRE.

The upcoming Yellow Tape 2 continues a busy year for Glock, as he’s spent time collaborating with his Paper Route EMPIRE associates. Earlier this year, he connected with his label boss and frequent sparring partner Young Dolph for Dum And Dummer 2, their second full-length collaborative album. Debuting at #8 on the Billboard 200Dum & Dummer 2 generated nearly 36k sales equivalent units across platforms and scored the fifth-biggest streaming debut on Spotify during its first week of release. Earlier this month, the album received a glowing review from Pitchfork, who awarded the album a 7.5 score and cemented Young Dolph & Key Glock as a “once-in-a-generation” rap duo, akin to 8Ball & MJG or Method Man & Redman, and “one of the most in-sync alliances in the genre today.” Dum & Dummer 2 is the duo’s second Top 10 album, following the original Dum and Dummer, which also debuted at #8 in 2019. Glock also made multiple appearances on PAPER ROUTE iLLUMINATithe first-ever label compilation tape by Paper Route EMPIRE. Along with collaborating with fellow PRE signees like Snupe Bandz on “Blu Boyz” and Bandaid” and Paper Route Woo on “Big Ol Racks,” Glock connected with Gucci Mane for project highlight “I Do This.

My Favorite Color Sounds the Alarm in Jazzy, Chaotic “Mayday” Single

Published

on

By

Acclaimed for his malleable flows and witty pen game, My Favorite Color specializes in a strain of rap music that’s somehow both ignorant and erudite. Sending a blaring message aimed squarely at anyone who hasn’t yet recognized his titanic talent, MFC shares “Mayday,” a new single. Blessed with an unconventional instrumental that mixes saxophone bleats, white noise, and a hummable keyboard turnaround, MFC paints over the beat like Jackson Pollock, gleefully switching up cadences and contorting his voice into cartoon-like shapes. Lyrically, MFC has fun mixing party-positive flexes with tongue-twisting geopolitical analysis: “I ain’t f*ckin’ with no socialism, communism, chauvinism/Quit votin’ for the puppets, n****, don’t nobody give a f*ck so f*ck it, n****a.”

The latest glimpse of his upcoming project, due early next year, “Mayday” finds My Favorite Color in a rarified spot–he’s confident enough in his abilities to experiment with his craft and to have fun while doing it. “Mayday” immediately follows Old News,” a bouncy, lyrical banger that takes the time to emphasize why the L.A.-via-Pittsburgh artist is different from your favorite rapper, complete with hilarious music video where MFC plays multiple parts a la Eddie Murphy. In the wake of “Old News,” My Favorite Color was named one of the Best New Artists of September 2021 by Pigeons & Planes.

Signed to Rostrum Records, the label that broke Pittsburgh legends like Mac Miller and Wiz Khalifa, My Favorite Color looks to follow in their footsteps as the next artist from the Steel City to make it big. “Old News” heralds a return for the L.A.-via-Pittsburgh artist, who is working on his follow-up to Velma, his ambitious debut album. A tour through the Rostrum Records signee’s inventive mind and finely-tuned aesthetic, Velma is a revealing and relatable album–listening feels like catching up with an old friend about his life. On songs like the lead single Funeral,” My Favorite Color contemplates complex questions about faith, mortality, music, and love. Acclaimed by DJ BoothKAZI, and more, Velma is available everywhere via Rostrum Records.

Stay tuned for much more music and eye-popping videos from My Favorite Color in the coming weeks and months.
