ARI LENNOX – REMIX

Esteemed vocalist Ari Lennox (Dreamville/Interscope Records) displays her sultry stylings once again as she presents the Shea Butter Baby (Remix EP). Lennox solicits stellar crooner Durand Bernarr, rapper Smino and the popular cross-genre Doja Cat for the three track EP, released today. Each track offers its own unique take on the original, while still maintaining Lennox’s soulful vibe; with production courtesy of J. Cole, Craig Brockman, Omen, Ron Gilmore and Elite. The project includes remakes of “I Been” and “Facetime,” while Doja Cat lends her distinct sound and verse to “BMO.” The latter served as the third official single from Lennox’s acclaimed debut album, Shea Butter Baby, which also spawned the hit records, “Shea Butter Baby” with J. Cole and fan favorite, “New Apartment.”  The album landed on eight year-end lists for “Top Album,” including those compiled by the Associated Press, Billboard, NPR and Complex. You can listen to the Shea Butter Baby (Remix EP) HERE.

Ari Lennox’s unprecedented success was marked by an exciting 2019. The DC-born singer-songwriter preceded the release of her debut album by performing in front of 40,000 fans at the inaugural Dreamville Festival. The songstress continued on to headline the sold-out Shea Butter Baby Tour before joining Lizzo’s Cuz I Love You Tour. In August, Lennox headlined Live Nation Urban’s Femme It Forward music series in Philadelphia, PA. Her work earned her nominations at the 2019 Soul Train. This year, Lennox earned nominations at the NAACP and iHeart Music Awards, and she received a GRAMMY nomination for her work on the Dreamville album, Revenge of the Dreamers III. Lennox continues to work on new music as she looks forward to an equally captivating 2020.

RISING ARTIST OLIVER MALCOLM RELEASES NEW TRACK “HELEN” — LISTEN NOW

RISING ARTIST OLIVER MALCOLM RELEASES NEW TRACK “HELEN” — LISTEN NOW

Swedish born, London raised artist Oliver Malcolm has followed up with a brand new single, “Helen” (out on Darkroom/Interscope Records). The track (LISTEN HERE) is a poignant tale of salvation with staccato beats, blurry blues melodies interlaced with outré samples forming a sonic collage that’s fast becoming a signature of the young artist. Written and produced by Oliver himself, “Helen” follows the release of his debut single “Switched Up” which was critically praised by the likes of New York Times, FADER and SPIN who all went on to call it a masterful debut. Speaking on his sound and inspiration, Oliver has this to share:

“Last year I moved back to England. The song feels gritty and raw because that’s how I felt being back home in that environment. This guy owned a small complex behind an automobile warehouse and agreed to let me make as much noise as I want if I paid him 500 quid. I’d ride my bike back & forth every day with all my equipment in my backpack. This is the first song I made there.” — Oliver Malcolm

Praise for Oliver Malcolm & “Switched Up”:

“A sleek hybrid of rap and R&B” — FADER

“The drums lurch toward the offbeats, some looped guitar picking tugs against that pulse and Malcolm’s voice is a rattled, quavery moan…Everything stays off-kilter for the two and a half paranoid minutes of “Switched Off” by Oliver Malcolm” — New York Times, Playlist

“Oliver Malcolm’s ‘Switched Up’ Is Intoxicating… new single ‘Switched Up’ is a mesh of influences, a confluence of sounds, a mosaic of techniques.” — CLASH

About Oliver Malcolm
Oliver Malcolm got his start early, teaching himself how to spin records at 12 years old. Shortly after, he downloaded Logic and taught himself how to produce – working with IDK, Aluna George, Joey Bada$$, Jay Rock, Masego Tinashe and more. Now twenty, Oliver has developed his own voice. Touching everything from the production, vocals, songwriting, engineering, mixing and mastering, Oliver’s sound is unique and does not fit the mold of one genre. A multidisciplinary at heart, this is just the beginning of music lovers can look forward to from the new artist.

LUTE × MINI-SERIES

DREAMVILLE’S LUTE RELEASES NEW MINI-SERIES, “GOLD MOUF CHRONICLES”
 
In the ever-creative Dreamville fashion, rapper Lute (Dreamville/Interscope Records) has announced the release of his very own mini-series, “Gold Mouf Chronicles,” to aid in the promotion of his latest single “GED (Gettin Every Dolla).” The eight-episode online series, directed and edited by Alexander Hall, features the artist’s alter ego, Gold Mouf as he partakes in a host of activities and pranks. Just shy of five minutes, the first episode, “The Joy of Painting with Gold Mouf” is styled after a classic PBS program hosted by the late Bob Ross (The Joy of Painting).

The episode opens with a mild-mannered Lute who quickly transitions into the charismatic, though slightly foul-mouthed, Gold Mouf, who walks viewers through the painting of a Keith Haring-inspired spaceship. Both intriguing and informative, viewers will appreciate the rapper’s intellect and ability to seamlessly slip between his two personas. You can watch the first episode HERE.

The online series serves as the second wave of promotion for the recently released “GED (Gettin Every Dolla),” which serves as the opening theme song. The single was first teased through a barrage of cryptic commercials which appeared heavily on social media early this year. The accompanying Neal Farmer-directed video has racked up over 1MM views on YouTube. Lute continues to generate buzz for his undeniable skills as an emcee, as well as his incredible fashion sense. He can be heard on the Grammy-nominated RIAA certified Gold compilation album Revenge of the Dreamers III; receiving significant praise for his work on the track, “Under the Sun.” The certified Gold collaboration features the Charlotte-born, Lute, and fellow North Carolinians: superstar and label head, J-Cole, and popular rising artist, DaBaby. With regards to fashion, Lute has been featured on Vogue and Refinery29’s “Best Dressed Men” compilations. Most recently, Lute shined when he performed a halftime set during a Hornets vs. Rockets showdown at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. As part of the event, Dreamville gifted 7,500 fans with limited edition apparel.
