Why @ShamefulNatalie’s new song “100 Bands” Is Music For Your Ears

Published

on

Every so often, we step outside of our regular realm of sounds and gift our readers/listeners with something out of the ordinary. It keeps us, just as much as our readers, on our toes. We listen to so much, so, when we find a song that sounds unlike anything we’ve heard in recent days, we are eager to share it with the world. Today’s find comes from Natalie, an NY-based artist from Houston, and her new cut “100 Bands.” We’re going to keep it all the way real and give you three reasons why you should check it out.

Natalie knows her shit

Natalie grew up in both Chicago and Houston, meaning that she’s equally knowledgeable in drill music and the chopped and screwed scene. In a recent interview with ELEVATOR, she revealed that her music attempts to mix some of the stylings that she found in the DJ Screw tapes that she grew up on. There aren’t many people on this wave, so hearing that she’s learning from her influences should pique your interest.

Her sound is off the well-beaten path

Describing Natalie’s sound is a little harder than you could imagine. For all intents and purposes, lets just label it as “techno.” Natalie then brings in a number of creative touches that meld genres and make her music a product of all of them.

Her attention to detail is uncanny

Even something as simple as cover art, Natalie puts a hundred and ten percent in. “100 Bands”‘s cover  continues a theme that her last project SHAMEFUL utilized – a simplistic item-centric cover system. Her songs also sound similar in a sense that she’s writing her own musical series – all of the pieces connect in their own special ways. That’s what makes her one of the most special artists you’ve heard recently.

Featured in Respect MagazineHip Hop N MoreThe News-Gazette and more, Champaign’s-own Gatson is here with his new EP “Holding On”! With an emphasis on giving people hope and letting them know they’re not alone, Gatson aims to have his listeners walk away in a better mental space than they were in before pressing play. “I want the listener to feel hope and invigorated with a new energy knowing they can conquer anything that they truly want and believe in.” – Gatson

Jamie Gatson didn’t start making music because he had ambitions of money and fame. It was his best friend – Kiwane Carrington’s – death that gave life to Gatson’s beginnings as an artist. Kiwane was murdered by the police when he and Gatson were 15 years old. Since deciding to pursue music professionally, Gatson has released 4 projects, collaborated with members of Spillage Village, and been featured in several publications.

Joined by Rick RossMasego, and Xavier OmärElhae (@ELHAE) makes his Motown (@Motown) debut with Aura III. Marking the next phase of the Georgia-native’s already remarkable career, the follow up to 2017’s Billboard-charting EP Aura II finds the singer/songwriter showcasing off melodic, mesmerizing vocals and progressive production to create textured songs for every occasion.

U Know” is an island-tinged jam primed for slow winds in dimly lit clubs. “Separated” is a pained song about a necessary romantic split. “Fun Fact,” which features Grammy-nominated rapper Rick Ross, is both a tender request for physical intimacy and an avowal of self-confidence. The Masego-assisted single “My City” remains a standout. A lounge-leaning slice of downtempo soul with touches of jazz, the C Gutta-produced track finds Elhae delivering smooth come-ons to the woman of his desire.

Elhae on his latest release:

“I think the ‘Aura’ series over time has become a bit of an escape for me, where I can let off steam and vent about things I’m going through at that current moment in my life. Much like anyone else, this is just another chapter in my life symbolizing growth and maturity.”
