“Wave” was initially released as part of her EP titled “Great Escape” earlier this year.

Beautifully shot in a California landscape made up of mountains, greenery, water and wildlife, the music video captures the song’s lyrical comparison of relationships to weather perfectly. It is directed by Andy Hines, who has worked with Lizzo, Logic and Anderson .Paak.

Capturing heaps of praise from critics, Rogers has been called “the new ‘It’ girl of alt-R&B” by NYLON while V MAGAZINE’S “NEXT GENERATION” said she has “an unapologetic uniqueness, a creative presence, and a strong voice.”

Billboard said, “Destiny Rogers marries a gift for personal storytelling with a sumptuous percussion palette.”

“Great Escape” also included her single “Kickin’ Pushin’” and two other previously released tracks titled “Euphoria” and “Lo Lo.”

It is the 21-year-old artist’s second EP after her 2019 EP titled “Tomboy.” She has also performed at festivals and toured North America and Europe with Ruel.

Duckwrth Coming Closer visual

Duckwrth – Coming Closer

Critically acclaimed Los Angeles rapper Duckwrth releases his new track “Coming Closer” feat. G.L.A.M. and Juliana Romana today.

Listen to “Coming Closer” feat. G.L.A.M. and Juliana Romana HERE.

On the track, which is produced by LA based twins Two Fresh and G.L.A.M., Duckwrth once again instigates unpredictable and unprecedented genre alchemy. He threads together bouncy rhymes while G.L.A.M. fires back with a seductive counterpoint as their bars come together before the dancefloor-ready hook sung by Juliana Romana. This anthem glides between hip-hop and electronic only to border on unexpected pop bliss.

“Coming Closer” arrives hot on the heels of his buzzing feel-good anthem “Find A Way” feat. Alex Mali, Radio Ahlee, & Bayli. HipHopDX praised its “melodic message of perseverance,” and Brooklyn Vegan described it as “powerful.” HYPEBEAST wrote, “The single serves as an uplifting anthem during these troubling times, featuring lyrics that showcase the artist’s ability to reminisce about the past and see a way forward.” Earmilk put it best, “The single plays as a welcome beam of light during a dark time.”

Over the last five years, LA-based wunderkind Duckwrth has quickly risen up the ranks as a promising star of the future of music. His collection of critically acclaimed projects including Nowhere (2015,) I’m Uugly (2016), Xtra Uugly (2017) and The Falling Man EP (2019), have transcended streaming platforms and landed in films, TV series, and brand ad campaigns and have received critical acclaim from a vast amount of outlets including NPR, The FADER, Complex, XXL and more. This cumulation has led the rapper to become an international touring staple, headlining shows globally and performing at Austin City Limits and opening for superstars Billie Eilish and Anderson .Paak. Duckwrth’s music has appeared on shows like CW’s All American, HBO’s Insecure and Real Time with Bill Maher and his song “Start A Riot” was featured on the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse soundtrack. His music has appeared in campaigns for the likes of Cadillac, Microsoft, Peloton, Amazon and Apple Music, and he’s worked with fashion legacies like Levi’s, Vans and Fila, as well as high fashion men’s suit designer Paul Smith.

SOLE DXB

SOLE DXB 2017 ANNOUNCES HEAVYWEIGHT PROGRAM FEATURING KANO, PUSHA T, GOLDLINK, HIROSHI FUJIWARA, JEFF STAPLE, MELODY EHSANI AND MORE

THIS DECEMBER 7-9, THE ANNUAL DUBAI-BASED STREET CULTURE FAIR RETURNS FOR ITS 6TH EDITION at DUBAI DESIGN DISTRICT (d3)

Tuesday 24 October, 2017, Sole DXB in partnership with d3, announces its full program for 2017, with the support of Cadillac, Coca Cola and in association with Dubai Tourism. The three-day global street culture festival returns this December 7th, 8th and 9th at d3, Dubai, revealing a heavyweight billing that brings together some of the world’s finest names from across art, food, music, sports and style. Having celebrated American Hip Hop heritage in 2015, and its British street-evolved counterpart in 2016, Sole DXB returns in 2017 to spotlight the legacy and influence of Japanese contemporary design.

Reflecting the booming appetite for alternative culture that Sole DXB has steadily cultivated since its inception in 2010. Sole DXB is again delighted to call Dubai Design District (d3) home to the region’s only street and urban culture festival. Mirroring what d3 has set out to achieve; to build a thriving creative neighbourhood for a diverse community that share common interests.

The confirmed music billing for 2017 welcomes hip-hop greats of both present and future. Artists to perform most notably include award-winning musician Kano, G.O.O.D Music President and rapper Pusha T, American silk-soul rapper Goldlink, German rapper Serious Klein, and Manchester urban jazz singer IAMDDB, hailed as one of the breakout stars of 2017 and already amassing streams in excess of 1 million hits per track. And it wouldn’t be Sole DXB without some intimate after-parties, with the OGs DJ Stretch Armstrong, DJ Shortkut, streetwear icons PATTA Soundsystem, and DJs Tom Crane, Dave Lubin, and Andy Baxter providing the flavours this year.

Opening night Thursday 7th December welcomes all to a now-ritual free-to-public annual film screening. This year, with the international premiere of Word is Bond is the turn of Mass Appeal and their recently produced hip-hop documentary, to take centre stage. Directed by Mass Appeal’s Chief Creative Officer, Sacha Jenkins, the documentary examines the

transformative power of lyrics in the world of Hip Hop. With an open door policy, it’s the first in a long line of socially driven moves from Sole DXB aimed at providing legitimate, culturally-weighted entertainment, stimulating grass roots artistry.

On Friday 8th December, Sole DXB opens in its entirety, with a series of cultural talks unveiled, including intimate ‘no holds barred’ conversations with some of the biggest names in design, fashion and music. These include: headlining musician Pusha T; Fragment Design founder and much heralded Godfather of Streetwear Hiroshi Fujiwara; designer and style icon Jeff Staple of Staple Design; Peter Bittenbender, CEO of New York-based media company/record label Mass Appeal (of which hip hop legend Nas is a partner); founder of global alternative culture platform Highsnobiety, David Fischer makes a guest appearance; jewelry designer and famously the only woman to own a store front on notorious LA shopping destination Fairfax Avenue, Melody Ehsani; and Peter Jansson and Mubi Ali – founder and head buyer respectively of Sweden-born cult classic (and previous Online Retailer of the Year winner) sneaker retailer Sneakersnstuff.

From conversation to conversion, a host of highly sought after brands will show and retail never-before-seen wares across the weekend, each individually housed in bespoke retail units taking design cues from the finesse of Tokyo architecture. In parallel with some of the world’s biggest lifestyle brands on display including Asics, Nike, PUMA, Reebok. Japanese designers will provide some of the most highly-sought-after and hard-to-find product over the weekend, from brands including Neighborhood, Visvim, Wacko Maria, Undercover, Non-Native, and White Mountaineering. A sign of the growing importance of streetwear in the fashion sector, Sole DXB also enter into the world of luxury for the very first time – partnering with two standout luxury brands to preview their forward collections and create unique retail experiences for guests; the brands, both luxe icons: Dior Homme and Kenzo.

It was in 2010 that Sole DXB was founded, back then in a small Dubai community arts centre. What began as a small gathering of like-minded sneaker and hip-hop lovers coming together to swap kicks and share tracks, has rapidly grown into a 17,000 person, 3-day annual event with the support of the world’s leading cultural figures. A testament to the rise of the event and the region, Sole DXB is now a mainstay in the global events calendar and, when it comes to pushing cultural boundaries, is proving itself again as the one to watch.
