NIA ARCHIVES SAMPLES BRAZILIAN CHOIR ON EUPHORIC END OF SUMMER SINGLE “Baianá”

Published

By

Following a sold out Secret Summer Rave, Notting Hill Carnival headline slot and latest single “No Time” (1Xtra B List) with Clipz, Beenie Man, ShaSimone and Cristale, today [Friday 30th September] new gen junglist and inimitable rising star Nia Archives returns with her first solo single since her breakout EP Forbidden Feelingz in March called “Baianá”. Sampling the traditional Brazilian choir Barbatuques, this instrumental euphoric club track has been a staple of Nia’s sets all over world this summer from All Points East to Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds, Los Angeles, New York, Miami, Rio De Janeiro and Australia where she is currently on tour with fans eagerly IDing and awaiting its release.

Alongside the track today, Nia Archives takes us on a whirlwind trip to Brazil in an incredible video co-directed by herself and her long-time friend and collaborator, Delphino. Shot earlier this month in the country’s most famous city, Rio De Janeiro, in her trademark fast paced, lo-fi VHS docu-style aesthetic, we see the city through Nia’s lens, from epic views of Christ the Redeemer, a dip in the waters of the Copacabana, football in the Rocina favela with some local kids and crate diggin for some rare Samba, Bossa Nova and Baile funk. An artist becoming known for her unique style and attention to detail as much as her cutting edge productions, everything from the Brazil manicure to the “Baianá” grill is given its moment in this soon to be classic Nia Archives video.

Speaking on the creation on track, Nia says:

“I’ve always been a massive fan of Samba Music, Bossa Nova Music and Brazilian culture and had been a fan of the Barbatuques for a while. When I was looking through my samba / bossa playlist and thinking about songs to sample, “Baianá” was the one that stood out for me. When I started making it, the original version was quite bouncy which I wanted to make harder… so I flipped it into this crazy amen break roller with a Reese bass line. I feel like this one really showcases my work and style as a producer.”

Jay Fizzle Hosts a Paper Route Party in New “Won’t Cost Sh*t” Video

Published

Jay Fizzle floats above Tennessee trap instrumentals, delivering sturdy street stories with a fast-talking flow. Celebrating his success with his chosen family, the Paper Route Empire rapper shares the new video for Won’t Cost Sh*t.” Riding an atmospheric instrumental and toe-tagging the thudding percussion, Fizzle puts on a master class in flexing like only he can: “So much ice around my neck I coulda bought a ‘Rari/Plus I walk in with my strap, reach for my chain you get it poppin/Got all these racks they think I sold my soul to ‘luminati/They say ‘how he get so rich but he ain’t never went to college’?” In the video, Fizzle shows the world how he moves in Memphis, flashing his racks and his ice, sitting in the front trunk of his purple Tesla, and hosts a raucous party in the city, with guests like PRE brethren Key GlockPaperRoute Woo, and many others. “Won’t Cost Sh*t” is the latest clip from DonaFizzo, Fizzle’s latest album, following in the wake of the star-studded “Dust Town Livin” ft. Big Scarr & Big Moochie Grape.

Released last month, DonaFizzo finds Jay fitting his flow into unexpected pockets on each stellar instrumental–including beats from heavy-hitters like BandplayAyoza, and Sosa 808–with mutant-like machismo. With a style inspired by his own Master Splinter, Young Dolph, Fizzle’s desire to ascend from the gutter can be felt in every track. From the arcade villain-esque “Nike Check,” to the Mission: Impossible-esque bounce of “50 Freaky B*tches” ft. 21 Lil Harold, to the furiously flex-heavy “Nothing Into Something,” DonaFizzo hits harder than a bo-staff from start to finish.

With a knack for invention embodied in every flow he creates, it’s not hard to see why Jay Fizzle identifies so closely with his favorite purple Ninja Turtle, Donatello. Enlisting Big Scarr and fellow Paper Route Empire artist Big Moochie Grape as his fellow Memphis Mutants, Fizzle shares the new video for “Dust Town Livin” from his recent mixtape, DonaFizzo. The track finds Fizzle laying the groundwork for the trio’s pursuit of the paper, casting Scarr and Moochie as his Leonardo and Rafael with each artist’s unique talents combining to heighten the strength of the team.

DonaFizzo is the latest salvo in a busy year for Jay Fizzle and the rest of PRE. Fizzle kicked off the year with purpose, sharing “LLD,” a heartfelt tribute to his mentor Young Dolph. Adorned with lush harmonies and a star vocal turn from Ricco Barrino, “Long Live Dolph” finds Jay Fizzle baring his soul, the South Memphis native audibly emotional when he relays his gratitude to his mentor for teaching him everything he knows: “The way I talk, the way I walk, the way I act, the way I dress/The way I do my thing up in the booth, I learned it from the best.” With over 1.8 million views on YouTube, “LLD” is the opening track from Paper Route Empire Presents: Long Live Dolph, a compilation album from the independent label, which features appearances from nearly every artist on PRE, including Key GlockBig Moochie GrapeKenny Muney and more.
