Rochelle Bloom doesn’t seem to care much about what other rappers are doing these days. Her debut album “Partly Cloudy” is not trendy, you surely won’t find anything on the radio that sounds quite like it. Her music projects her own individual aesthetic; sexy but not sexual, dark but positive, cerebral yet poetic. Clean mixes not needed. The album release arrives with a beautifully filmed music video for the lead single “Stories I Create In My Head”, directed by Derek Evans. The video is stark and unsettling, as is the video’s emotional narrative about the struggles of family life, what defines success and living up to the expectations of others. Still fairly new to the Atlanta hip hop scene, Rochelle Bloom has already developed her own unique sound on her own terms. Having just had her very first placement earlier this year with her song “Dandylion” on CW’s “Charmed”, things […]

Here in Brooklyn this time of year is a big deal, it's when we finally get to enjoy our first taste of warm and breezy weather. And after the brutal COVID winter, it’s all the more special to finally be able to get outside and bask in the sun! This feeling isn’t lost on native New Yorker turned L.A. music supervisor Russell Manning, aka Rush Midnight, whose new single “Wine & Summertime” is the perfect soundtrack to getting back to enjoying the simple things in life. The second single off his upcoming album “Delilah”, the song is dreamy, sensual and subtly funky. Somewhat reminiscent of Tame Impala, “Wine & Summertime” strikes a balance between retro and futuristic depending on the perspective of the listener. As you might expect from a band led by an Oberlin-trained jazz bassist, Rush Midnight’s music is centered around Manning’s flawless melodic basslines. With less emphasis [...]

So like, who hasn’t been snatched by aliens at some point in their life? It’s a huge problem. But when you see those little bug-eyed extraterrestrials coming down at you, there’s only one thing to do. Blast them out of the sky with that BASS! UK producer DirtySnatcha has you covered with subsonic blasts from his new EP “Snatched, Vol 2”. The five song EP opens up with the massive track “Alien Shit” featuring Detroit rapper Chase The Dream, which is admittedly far too filthy for network television. Looking at you though, Netflix. Sup? Organically building his following through collaborations with artists such as Riot Ten (Dim Mak), Rico Act, Boogie T, Lucii, and Monxx, DirtySnatcha has made a name for himself as a premier producer and remixer in the bass community. With his own independent label and several million streams across platforms, he’s surely responsible for neck injuries to [...]

“Underdog Running W/ My Head Off” by Blayne B. is being featured in ESPN Music live programming from April through the end of July. Co-written by Welsh producer AstoriaBLVD, this song has also been featured by ESPN in their “Music Of The Month” series. About ESPN Music Led by Musical Director Kevin Wilson, ESPN has been curating sports programming with incredible music for decades. Their monthly artist features are also a great platform for independent artists, a promotional opportunity that is rarely included in most traditional sync licensing.

One of the best things about working with indie artists nowadays is that the internet has all but shattered the paradigm that brilliant artists are only found in major cities. The truth is there is incredible art being made everywhere, and it’s inspiring to live in a time where you can write a song and get it out to the world with little more than a laptop. 22-year-old Blayne B. lives in Great Bend, a small town in Kansas with a population of just under 16,000. Releasing his first single at just 12 years old, he’s spent the past decade prolifically writing songs exploring themes of intimacy, identity, anxiety, substance abuse, and depression. Equally adept at both rapping and singing and with a talent for melody far beyond his years, Blayne’s music doesn’t fit neatly into any one genre. But the raw emotion in his songwriting is universal and undeniable. […]

Nate Rose doesn’t need anyone’s help. Seriously, you could throw the prefix “self” in front of just about anything and it would apply: -written, -produced, -mixed, -mastered, -released, -managed-, -promoted, -published, -incorporated, and certainly not least of all -confident. In his newest release “By Myself”, this dapper rapper vents some steam while also bragging on his personal drive, determination, work ethic, and DIY attitude: “I originally made this beat for Gunna, but he passed on it. Rediscovered it one day while sifting through beats and at the time I was feeling really sour about a few individuals I had been doing business with. In that headspace of anger I felt inclined to write a reminder of how I came to build my career over the years doing all my own production, writing, recording, mixing & mastering, graphics, video production, marketing etc.” All that hard work has truly paid off, with […]

Having just authored the definitive guide on how to write your own bio and then five days later getting a piece he wrote published in the New York Times, it seemed only fitting that this week’s update is guest-written by the brilliant Adam Schatz. We just added in some hyperlinks and corrected the typos. Please enjoy! Landlady’s newest album is called “Landlady”, and it could not arrive at a better time! That’s because Landlady’s chief songwriter and executive director Adam Schatz has absolutely no other work at the moment, so he can put his full body-weight into promoting the new album, their self-determined most mature album to date that continues to tackle the evergreen topics of loss, joy, and the cosmic anchor that can be latched onto by a seemingly simple act of playing in a band. “Landlady” the album is a capture of the magic that can come from […]
