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.

Published

Making their GRAMMY® Awards debut and appearing during the most powerful moments of last night’s GRAMMY® Awards, fast rising brotherly R&B group WanMor joined forces with none other than the legendary Stevie Wonder to perform “The Way You Do The Things You Do”, originally by The Temptations to honor Berry Gordy and Smokey Robinson for MusiCares Persons of the Year.

Representing a passing-of-the-torch from one generation to the next, WanMor’s performance stands out as a superstar-making turn. They paid homage to The Temptations alongside one of the most influential artists in history. This only hints at a massive year for the group though.

They started the evening and graced the red carpet for a nonstop series of interviews. During this media blitz, they broke the news of their forthcoming self-titled debut, WanMor EP.

Recently, the group shared the single “Mine” and Every Pretty Girl in the City” Right out of the gate, it earned widespread critical acclaim. Last year, WanMor’s two-month Every Pretty Girl in the City Tour announced their arrival as a phenomenon. Among many highlights, they turned up at The American Dream Mall for a pop-up performance, igniting the crowd into a fervent frenzy. They impressively delivered pop-up performances at elementary, middle and high schools up and down the coast, rolling through Atlanta, Baltimore, New York, Florida, North, and South Carolina, and beyond. Making headlines, they’ve also recently appeared on Good Day Atlanta and News4Jax Morning Show as part of their fall promo tour.

Smokepurpp Prepares for a Big 2023 with 3-Song ‘Anti’ Capsule

Published

on

By

Smokepurpp surged out of South Florida with a penchant for firing up fans with quick-hitting, head-banging singles. Collecting three adventurous new bangers into a three-song “capsule,” Purpp shares Anti, his first new release of 2023. Anti debuts a new experimental format for Purpp, where he can follow his iconoclastic muse in short-form bursts. Capsule opening track “Draco” offers sirenic synths and subsonic bass for Purpp to dance over with his clipped cadences. “Chop Off The Top” fully embraces the euphoric “rage” sound, as Purpp skates atop Supah Mario‘s carnival-esque synths with easygoing melodies. Purpp turns up the intensity on final track “Out My Body,” snarling over DSC Sunny & Bido production with hedonistic fervor.

The new Anti capsule is a high-energy follow-up to Shoot First,” released in November. “Shoot First” was Purpp’s first new single as a lead artist since 2021’s “Not Your Speed” ft. Lil Gnar, but he has kept busy in the meantime collaborating with the likes of Masked WolfRarri, and Mike Stone. Purpp is hard at work on more “capsules” and a new project, his first since Psycho (Legally Insane) EP and his first full-length since the ferocious 2020 mixtape Florida Jit.

Stay tuned from much more from the iconoclastic artist as the year moves on, including a performance at the inaugural Rolling Loud Thailand in April.

Rising Philly Rapper Bumble Bee Releases her 4-Track EP Titled ‘Trapped In My Hive’

Published

By

With no pun intended, newcomer Bumble Bee is creating quite a buzz for herself as a rap artist. The rapper has already piqued the interest of major platforms like Generation Now, Dirty Glove Bastards Off the Porch, Hood Affairs, The Progress Report, Doggie Diamonds TV, A&R Bigga Rankin and more and is easily becoming a more notable act out of Philadelphia. She boasts over 22K followers on Instagram and has even worked alongside rap icons, but now more than ever, she feels it’s time to make a name for herself in the industry.

Bumble Bee, whose birth name is Zojuanna Bennett, grew up in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where she started rapping at just 9 years old. By 15, she was catching her stride as a rapper, but it wouldn’t be until 2022 that she’d begin to take the craft seriously. Since pursuing music, Bumble Bee has gained a lot of attention online with her versatile sound which she features on tracks like “We Outside”, “IDGAF”, and “Ride Still” and has even collaborated with fellow Philadelphia rap artist KUR and Omelly who’s been connected to Meek Mill’s label.

Philadelphia is known as the city of love but what sets the city apart, is the individuality among its artists. Bumble Bee remains lyrically free and offers a perfect balance of feminine and masculine energy and regardless of gender, she can hold her own on the track. Fans can expect to hear this authenticity on her 4-track project Trapped in my Hive.

Bumble Bee also gives back to her community by regularly speaking to the youth and volunteering at charity events. Bumble Bee’s rap career may just be getting started but she’s already achieved much success in such a short amount of time. Bumble Bee has been able to work with super producer Swagino, Breezy, and Philly’s top DJ, DJ Cosmic Kev. She has also had the opportunity to tour and hit prominent stages such as the MET. What’s next for the femcee is to remain consistent in delivering great music for her audience.
