12AM – After Midnight

12AM releases new AFTER MIDNIGHT EP via Sony Music Entertainment in Canada. “VOICES”; featuring the Hxliday out now. “12AM has an innate ability to draft big choruses which is why more and more artists are tapping in to use his melodic talents.” LYRICAL LEMONADE. “It seems like everyone is trying to glorify the turn up right now, and 12AM definitely does that.” HIP HOP CANADA.

LA-by-way-of-Toronto artist 12AM redefines his sound and enters a new era on After Midnight. The EP arrives with the video for the new single Voicesfeaturing Motown rapper The Hxliday, out now via Sony Music Entertainment Canada. 360 Magazine is pleased to see this new release as it associates with Sony Music.

In the “Voices” video, directed by Logan Meis (Polo G, The Kid Laroi, Trippie Redd, Tyla Yaweh), the viewer is invited into the minds of 12AM and The Hxliday, both fighting against the darkest parts of their psyche and inner turmoil. With their thoughts tearing them apart, symbols of the past make their way in the form of angels, demons, and physical scars. They seem numb to the pain and reach a point where they might just be enjoying it. Each scene gets more and more violent as the story comes to a final climax.

On his major-label debut, the rising act’s pain and passion shine through as he forges a connection with his listeners worldwide. Introducing a bold sound, the lyrics equally shed light on his challenging upbringing and showcase his hard-won elevated lifestyle. Tapping Jutes, Pyrex (Whippa), and The Hxliday for the new project, 12AM continues to add to his impressive list of collaborators which includes 24kGoldn, Iann Dior, Jez Dior, Trevor Daniel, among others. Now sitting on top of over 26 million total streams, he appears on Spotify’s coveted New Music Friday and teardrop playlists, as well as Post Malone’s post’s playlist on the platform.

12AM states, “This music is what I’ve created throughout my time moving to LA from Canada. It’s a new sound and a new lane. All the hardships I’ve gone through over the last few years, I’m surprised I even got to this point because it was a really long road to get here. It was something that seemed impossible to put together and have be released, but itߣs coming out now and Iߣm really proud of it.”

The production on After Midnight illustrates stark differences from 12AM’s first album, Afterparty. Working with producers Evan Gartner (Iann Dior, Jutes, MASN) and Mason Sacks (Dominic Fike, Lil Tecca), the new EP has a dark and nocturnal trap palette that lives up to 12AM’s name. He states “it’s the type of music you like to play or listen to after midnight super happy, energetic, depressed and alone or with somebody getting down…I wanted to embody every feeling you get After Midnight, life is usually the most real at that time.”

After Midnight gives us a deeper look into the world 12AM has navigated and created for himself. His endless hustle, effortless bravado, and all-or-nothing attitude have certainly earned his place in the game. The EP’s opener “Cold Season” sets the scene around 12AM’s life before moving to LA, living in the frigid cold of Canada with an inescapable feeling of isolation. For most of his life, he was responsible for taking care of his sick mother, until he tragically lost her in his teens. “If I could see my momma one more time Iߣd tell her that I’m all good,” he sings on the track, “I’d be lying but it’s all good…” At a young age, he struggled to financially support himself alone and eventually faced homelessness. Hit with these insurmountable burdens, he bottled up his emotions and channeled what he could in his writing. “Voices” paints a picture of the aftermath, torn emotions, and a heavy guard up due to inner child wounds. The lyrics describe the fallout of heartbreak, one day having the support of a loved one and left for dead the next. With distant distorted and melancholic piano strings, The Hxliday joins in seamlessly on the back half of the track with a striking feature that matches 12AMߣs energy. Paired with a booming 808 and stuttering high hats, alongside the duoߣs unmatched flow, the song explodes into an anthem about love and loss. The EP isnߣt all moody bangers though “come over” is a playful, sultry groove with a “Netflix & Chill” kind of vibe that garnered success on TikTok over the summer, including a post from influencer Sommer Ray who joined in on the dance trend. Other tracks on the EP include “Lights” featuring Pyrex (Whippa) and “Ski Mask.”

With more music on the horizon, the future looks incredibly bright and 12AM’s repertoire is only at its inception. Prolific in his dexterity, 12AM is consistently writing for other artists as well as himself. He can be seen frequently working with Elijah Woods and Omer Fedi (Kid Laroi “Without You,” 24kGoldn & Iann Dior “Mood,” and Lil Nas X “Montero”). Touring accolades include shows with Internet Money, Iann Dior, Jez Dior, 24kGoldn, Jutes, Trevor Daniel, and Souly Had. No stranger to media coverage and acclaim from tastemakers, praise has rolled in from industry key players such as Complex, Elevator Mag, idolator, Lyrical Lemonade, and Vice’s Noisey.

Reflecting on his work, 12AM says, “My main focus is just to help people. That’s why I make music. When I get messages from fans saying Iߣve helped them through depression or whatever they are going through it means the world to me, I canߣt really believe it. That’s what I do this for. Whenever I play a show and fans are singing the lyrics back and when they meet me after the show I just want to have a positive impact and be there for them, because they are all that matters in this music industry.”

About Trippie Redd:

One of the most versatile and creatively daring artists in hip-hop today, Trippie Redd makes music that’s both wildly experimental and massively appealing. Since delivering his debut mixtape A Love Letter to You in 2017, the multi-platinum-selling, chart-topping rapper, singer and songwriter has continually defied genre boundaries, embedding his melodic take on rap with frenetic elements of rock-and-roll and heavy metal. And with his penetrating lyrics and nuanced but hard-hitting vocal performance, the 21-year-old Ohio native matches that endless ingenuity with a powerfully raw emotional impact.

A self-professed workaholic who’s now debuted five consecutive projects in the top 5 of the Billboard 200 chart —Trippie got his start as a teenager “living in a basement with roaches recording music,” as he tells it. Born Michael Lamar White IV and raised in Canton, Ohio, he grew up on hip-hop icons like Tupac Shakur, Nas, and Jay-Z, but later became fascinated with the shock-rock of Slipknot and Rob Zombie. As he recalls, the urge to create his own music arose soon after his older brother (an aspiring rapper who went by the name Dirty Redd) died in a car accident when Trippie was 10. (“I took his dream and did it myself,” Trippie says now.) Drawing much of his inspiration from the free-flowing style and inventive lyricism of Lil Wayne, Trippie began recording in his cousin’s basement and later relocated to Atlanta to further hone his skills, quickly landing a record deal with 10K Projects.

Though 2020 brought its fair share of adjustments, Trippie used his time in quarantine to make some of his boldest career moves yet, including making his acting debut during an episode of Lil Dicky’s critically acclaimed DAVE and headlining Rolling Loud’s Loud Stream. Trippie also dropped his highly anticipated album, Pegasus, on Halloween. The mythical LP, which debuted at #2, included the intoxicating “Excitement” featuring PARTYNEXTDOOR and highlighted Trippie bridging the generational gap with the legendary Busta Rhymes on “I Got You.” The deluxe version of Pegasus comes in the form of NEON SHARK: Presented By Travis Barker, released in February.

12AM x Jutes — Ski Mask from Jenny Hossain for use by 360 Magazine

12AM × JUTES — “SKI MASK”

Prolific alternative Pop, Hip Hop and R&B artist 12AM taps Jutes for his latest single “Ski Mask” out now via Sony Music Canada. The new heat arrives with a Spring Breakers-inspired video co-directed by 12AM himself and Chris Villa (Post Malone, Tyla Yaweh). You can listen to “Ski Mask” HERE. You can watch the new video HERE.

The hard-hitting track encompasses infectiously melodic vocals escorted by 12AM’s ability to captivate audiences with his storytelling prowess. With lyrics outlining love and what can be put on the line to keep it, “Ski Mask” is one of many chapters to come.

“Me and Jutes have been wanting to put out a song for so long together but we had to have the right one… we made a couple records here and there but once I free-styled the hook for “Ski Mask” we both knew this was the one. He laid his verse down and bodied it and it made me step my game up on my verse,” explains 12AM.

“12 played me just the hook and said, yep this the one. I went in, recorded my verse in 15 mins, it just came out mad easy, showed him and he went crazy for it. Definitely feels good to finally have a track together. We’ve lived together and been grinding this music shit together for so long and never released a song together but it was worth the wait,” Jutes adds.

On the making of the video, 12AM also notes, “I’ve always been super hands on with everything I do. I was directing my own music videos in high school and just always had a vision for it. Chris and I work easy together and I’ve learned a lot from him from doing multiple videos and he let me do my thing for this one. He had ideas, I had ideas, and we met in the middle but when I wasn’t in the shots I loved being behind the camera and having my vision come to life.”

“Ski Mask” arrives as a follow up to “come over” and “Voices” whose success resulted in early rotation on Apple Radio 1, premieres with Travis Mills and media coverage from cultural tastemaker Lyrical Lemonade, among others. Adding to mainstream radio and media coverage, praise for upcoming releases can be seen on social media from artists such as Travis Barker, Tyla Yaweh and Elijah Woods.

Los Angeles-based, Ottawa native Matthew Dubois better known as 12AM is an emerging alternative R&B singer stemming from the ever-expanding Canadian music scene.

Earning love from streaming platforms and radio alike, 12AM’s releases have landed consistent debuts on new music playlists in the US and Canada, garnering early support in rotation on Apple Music 1 Radio which led to premieres with Travis Mills for “love dies” and “come over.” Notably 12AM boasts over 15 million streams with 6 million of those branching from viral tracks “Voices” and “come over.”

No stranger to media coverage and acclaim from tastemakers, praise can be seen coming from industry key players such as Lyrical Lemonade who said “12AM has been having a massive year without being able to tour, the Canadian [and LA-based] artist has an innate ability to craft big choruses which is why more and more artists are tapping in to use his melodic talents.”

A prolific storyteller, 12AM consistently writes for other artists as well as himself. 12AM can be seen frequently working with Elijah Woods and Omer Fedi (Kid Laroi “Without You”), (24kGoldn & Iann Dior “Mood”) and (Lil Nas X “Montero”) also regularly working with producers Midi Jones, Bizness Boi and NGHT NGHT. Apart from writing and making music, 12AM has an extensive touring background, in his most recent run touring North America with Souly Had, 12AM completed over 30 show dates on a single tour amassing sold out venues in Salt Lake City and Toronto. Touring accolades include dates with Internet Money, Iann Dior, Jez Dior, 24kGoldn, Jutes and Trevor Daniel. A one-of-a-kind artist, 12AM’s passion and pain shine through his music-making and unique narrative ability.

With highly anticipated upcoming releases with Travis Barker, Jutes, and Pyrex, paired with the heavy hitting management team of Tes Siyoum (Tyla Yaweh) and Alec Strasmore (ex-Post Malone), 12AM is creating the pathway for a summer 2021 takeover. 12AM’s repertoire is only at its inception, the future looks incredibly bright for the multifaceted and highly talented singer.

Joined by fellow 10K Projects artist iann dior, and fast rising Atlanta artist SoFayGo, Trippie’s 25 stop tour will kick off on August 25 at The Armory in Minneapolis, MN and wrap up on October 6 at the Performance Venue at Hollywood Park in Los Angeles. Tickets go on sale this Friday 6/18 at 10am local time at Trippie’s website.

Despite the odds, 2021 has been one of Trippie’s biggest years to date. His latest single Miss The Rage with Playboi Carti debuted at #11 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (the highest chart debut for either artist) and its music video surpassed 1M views in four hours. He also kicked off the year with his first-ever rock album NEON SHARK, produced by close friend and collaborator Travis Barker. NEON SHARK features appearances by Machine Gun Kelly, Chino Moreno (Deftones), blackbear and more, and acts as the deluxe edition of Trippie’s October 2020 album, Pegasus, which debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 chart.

Following his biggest year to date, multi-platinum selling rapper and singer iann dior will be opening for Trippie Redd on the tour. With a Billboard #1 for his feature on Mood with 24KGoldn, which spent 10 weeks inside the Top 10 and is 4x Platinum, four RIAA-certified gold singles, and collaborations with everyone from Travis Barker to Lil Baby, iann dior is a genre-agnostic force to be reckoned with in pop music today. The tour arrives shortly after the April release of iann and Trippie’s second single together, shots in the dark, a sequel to their 2019 collab, gone girl, a favorite among fans.

ABOUT TRIPPIE REDD

One of the most versatile and creatively daring artists in hip-hop today, Trippie Redd makes music that’s both wildly experimental and massively appealing. Since delivering his debut mixtape A Love Letter to You in 2017, the multi-platinum-selling, chart-topping rapper, singer and songwriter has continually defied genre boundaries, embedding his melodic take on rap with frenetic elements of rock-and-roll and heavy metal. And with his penetrating lyrics and nuanced but hard-hitting vocal performance, the 21-year-old Ohio native matches that endless ingenuity with a powerfully raw emotional impact.

A self-professed workaholic who’s now debuted five consecutive projects in the top 5 of the Billboard 200 chart —Trippie got his start as a teenager living in a basement with roaches recording music, as he tells it. Born Michael Lamar White IV and raised in Canton, Ohio, he grew up on hip-hop icons like Tupac Shakur, Nas, and Jay-Z, but later became fascinated with the shock-rock of Slipknot and Rob Zombie. As he recalls, the urge to create his own music arose soon after his older brother (an aspiring rapper who went by the name Dirty Redd) died in a car accident when Trippie was 10. (I took his dream and did it myself, Trippie says now.) Drawing much of his inspiration from the free-flowing style and inventive lyricism of Lil Wayne, Trippie began recording in his cousin’s basement and later relocated to Atlanta to further hone his skills, quickly landing a record deal with 10K Projects.

Though 2020 brought its fair share of adjustments, Trippie used his time in quarantine to make some of his boldest career moves yet, including making his acting debut during an episode of Lil Dicky’s critically acclaimed DAVE and headlining Rolling Loud’s Loud Stream. Trippie also dropped his highly anticipated album, Pegasus, on Halloween. The mythical LP, which debuted at #2, included the intoxicating Excitement featuring PARTYNEXTDOOR and highlighted Trippie bridging the generational gap with the legendary Busta Rhymes on I Got You. The deluxe version of Pegasus comes in the form of NEON SHARK: Presented By Travis Barker, released in February.

GLASS ANIMALS FEAT. IANN DIOR – HEATWAVES

GLASS ANIMALS RELEASES NEW VERSION OF “HEAT WAVES” FEATURING IANN DIOR

“HEAT WAVES” HOLDS #1 AT ALTERNATIVE RADIO AND #1 ON BILLBOARD ALTERNATIVE CHART FOR SECOND WEEK

“HEAT WAVES” CONTINUES TO CLIMB SINGLES CHARTS – HOLDS #1 IN AUSTRALIA AND #36 ON SPOTIFY GLOBAL TOP 50

LISTEN TO “HEAT WAVES” FEATURING IANN DIOR HERE

Heat Waves” by UK band Glass Animals was first released in June 2020, ahead of their third album Dreamland, which was put out later that summer. An instant hit with the established fan base, “Heat Waves” paved the way for the album. But this new version, which features rap star iann dior, is the tipping point of a song that has been on a serious journey of growth these last eight months. Listen to “Heat Waves” featuring iann dior HERE.

Since its initial release, “Heat Waves” has experienced a global rise in support that shows no signs of stopping. Having originally resonated with their fans, word of the song quickly spread, and the track started getting healthy traction on radio stations globally. Next came a sync placement on FIFA, which opened up a whole new audience for the band and helped the track begin to climb charts all over the world. “Heat Waves” was then notably crowned number 1 on Triple J’s Hottest 100 – an accolade not given to a UK band since 2009, with previous winners including Kendrick Lamar and Billie Eilish. A third surge in attention came more recently with an organic Minecraft affiliation. YouTuber LoverFella (2.3M subscribers) rebuilt a Glass Animals fan’s base and surprised her with a meet-and-greet with the band, who were waiting inside. Watch it HERE and the Extended BTS HERE. Dave Bayley recently sat down to chat about the track’s creation with Hrishikesh Hirway on the coveted Song Exploder Podcast. Listen to the interview HERE.

“Heat Waves” currently sits at #1 on the Alternative Radio Chart for the second consecutive week, a first for the band in their career. The song also climbed to #1 on Mediabase, #1 on Billboard Alternative Airplay Chart and #1 on Apple Music’s Alternative Genre Chart. The track continues to grow in popularity on the Top 40 Radio Chart (currently sitting at #23) and made its debut on Apple Music All Genres Chart.

Currently “Heat Waves” holds the #1 spot on the ARIA Official Singles Chart in Australia for the fourth consecutive week (the second longest positioned #1 song in 2021 for Australia after Olivia Rodrigo) and is holding strong on Spotify’s Global Top 50 Chart. It has over 2 million global adjusted single sales and 310 million global combined streams (200M on Spotify / 80M in the US). To date, “Heat Waves” peaked at 1.88 million daily streams and has received 14 million views of the video on YouTube. Glass Animals recently hit a new Spotify monthly listener peak of 16.3 million, surpassing the likes of Tame Impala, Gorillaz, The 1975 and The Strokes.

Bursting with all the wonderful tricks that we have come to expect from Glass Animals’ enigmatic front man and producer Dave Bayley, “Heat Waves” is a scorching, bass-heavy pop-trip hit, and the addition of iann dior brings a refreshing new dynamic to the track.

iann dior was born in Puerto Rico and raised in Texas. He found instant success with the first song he ever wrote. In early 2019, he signed a deal with Elliot Grainge’s 10K Projects and established himself as a lo-fi hip hop artist to watch, with early songs like “cutthroat” and “emotions.” iann went on to release “gone girl,” featuring fellow 10K Projects signee Trippie Redd, which provided a perfect lead up to his debut album Industry Plant. In mid-2020, iann dior featured on 24KGoldn’s “Mood,” and the single immediately began to climb the charts, becoming both 24KGoldn and iann dior’s first #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 Chart.

Glass Animals’ album Dreamland entered UK charts on its opening week at #2 (their highest ever scoring chart position, a massive 21 spots above their last album, the Mercury Prize-nominated How To Be A Human Being) and charted inside the top 10 in the US, Australia, New Zealand and Ireland. The album clocked up 160 million streams in its first week of release.

About ZHU:

Since emerging from the underground in 2014, ZHU has brought a cinematic sense of world-building to his music. Born Steven Zhu and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, he began playing piano at a young age. After making his debut with Moves Like Ms. Jackson a 2014 release that drew widespread attention despite ZHU’s deliberately concealing his identity ZHU dropped his debut EP The Nightday and soon earned a GRAMMY Award nomination for Best Dance Recording for his breakthrough single Faded. Arriving in 2016, his debut album Generationwhy found ZHU illuminating his emotional life to a greater degree, in part by adding more of his lithe vocal work to the album’s channeling of desert psychedelia. It debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronics Albums chart. ZHU continued that sonic exploration on his sophomore album Ringos Desert, a 2018 effort featuring guests like TOKiMONSTA and Tame Impala. He has recently collaborated with Kito (Follow ft. Jeremih), Tinashe (ONLY), partywithray (CAME FOR THE LOW) and Bob Moses(Desire).

As his profile has risen over the past few years, ZHU has passionately pursued his interest in fashion, playing an essential part in the design of his fashion-forward merch. With ambitions of including a runaway at upcoming live shows, ZHU aspires to shed light on the left-of-center sensibilities of the more daring corners of the electronic-music world in all aspects of his artistry. ZHU has recently launched partnerships with Luminosity Gaming and Leica.
