BMF EPISODE – LOVE ALL, TRUST FEW

BMF Debuted as the #1 Premiere on the Starz App this Year 

BMF is inspired by the true story of two brothers, Demetrius Big Meech Flenory (Demetrius Flenory, Jr.) and Terry Southwest T Flenory (Da’Vinchi), from the inner-city streets of southwest Detroit in the late 1980’s, who fostered the most prominent drug trafficking organization in the U.S., known as Black Mafia Family.

Their parents Charles Flenory (Russell Hornsby) and Lucille Flenory (Michole Briana White), as well as their spiritual advisor, Pastor Swift (Snoop Dogg), push the brothers to pursue formal educations. The tension between Meech and Terry’s blood family and the criminal family they formed to eradicate themselves from poverty creates inner conflict as the brothers pursue the ever-elusive American Dream.

“BMF” stars Demetrius ‘Lil Meech’ Flenory Jr., the son of Demetrius ‘Big Meech’ Flenory; Da’Vinci (The Way Back, grown-ish), Russell Hornsby (FencesThe Hate U Give), Michole Briana White (Dead to MeShe Hate Me), Ajiona Alexus (Empire, 13 Reasons Why), Eric Kofi Abrefa (Blue StoryFury), Myles Truitt (Black Lightening, The New Edition Story) and Steve Harris (The Practice, Diary of a Mad Black Woman). Snoop Dogg (Dolemite Is My NameSoul PlaneTraining Day), Arkeisha ‘Kash Doll’ Knight, Wood Harris (Empire, Creed), Lala Anthony (The Chi, Think Like a Man) and Serayah (Empire, Favorite Son) star in recurring roles.

PROSPA – VOYAGE

UK Duo Prospa Reveal New EP “Rave Science Vol. 2” With the Release of New Track “Voyage”

Legendary UK dance music duo Prospa announce their forthcoming EP, “Rave Science Vol. 2′” along with the first single from the project, Voyage.” Very few UK artists have had such an impact on the return to live music as Prospa. The London-via-Leeds duo have tirelessly toured the country’s festival and club circuits since their reopening, bringing with them a slew of new music ready to make its mark for the first time.

Among these tracks is their soul-rendering electronic anthem “WANT NEED LOVE, an uplifting omnipresent force through car stereos this summer, and now a fully-fledged singalong moment at the likes of Warehouse Project and as they headline the North Stage at 2021’s Field Day. With the nation’s re-emergence on to dance floors, Prospa are ready to cause damage once again, announcing the follow up to their acclaimed Rave Science Vol. 1″ EP with a brand new single, ‘Voyage’.

The Rave Science ethos is the bring the stadium sized energy of Prospa’s work and distill it, creating tracks that sound as at home in sweat soaked basement venues as they do in cavernous warehouses. ‘”Voyage’” is a perfect distillation of this mission statement; with a processed break as it’s rhythmic centrepiece, vast ambient textures and a dizzying synth line that disorientates as much as it hypnotizes. The track builds towards a stunning apex with distorted bass tones and a suitably infectious vocal sample, spotlighting Prospa’s deft ability to create wildly imaginative works of club euphoria from seemingly nowhere – taking cues from the past while abstracting them enough to feel completely future facing.

“Voyage” and the forthcoming “Rave Science Vol. 2 EP” are stunning examples of Prospa’s distinct club energy within their compositions; full bodied enough to cause a visceral reaction on the dance floor, yet inviting enough to attract massive crowds nationwide. With club’s reopened and the UK’s hunger for new, boundary pushing sounds at an all-time high, now’s the perfect time to reacquaint yourself with Prospa, the duo repurposing rave euphoria for a new generation.

More than 100 photorealistic dinosaurs are ready to delight families and ring in the New Year when Jurassic Quest® heads indoors at the Los Angeles Convention Center for the holiday weekend December 29 – January 2.

Jurassic Quest is one of the first indoor family edutainment shows to re-launch since March 2020 due to the pandemic — its drive thru iteration sold out two Rose Bowl runs earlier this year — and will return to the SoCal with its most beloved and unique indoor experiences for the whole family including more than 100 life-like dinosaurs, dinosaur themed rides and attractions, live dinosaur shows, interactive science and art activities, a “Triceratots” soft play area for our littlest explorers, photo opportunities, and more.

OH WONDER DROPS NEW TRACK “DON’T LET THE NEIGHBOURHOOD HEAR”

SURPRISE ALBUM 22 BREAK OUT OCTOBER 8TH

Oh Wonder has released brand new track “Don’t Let The Neighbourhood Hear” – a further preview of surprise new album “22 Break,” which is set for release on October 8th. The project was launched recently by its powerful title track, and swiftly followed by news of a 52-date world tour for 2022 (an intimate London date at The Albany Theatre this week sold out in seconds and will be streamed globally on October 14th). All this is the unique duo’s first new material since 2020’s “No One Else Can Wear Your Crown,” and back-to-back top 10 albums from the band who have—on their own distinct terms—become one of UK pop’s more unsuspecting success stories (2.7 billion streams, 1.7 million adjusted album sales, and vocal fans in the likes of Billie Eilish, who covered “All We Do” during her Apple documentary).

“Don’t Let The Neighbourhood Hear” is an emotive highlight of 22 Break, a soundtrack to screaming fights (and keeping them from next-door) amidst the pressures of the pandemic. This tumultuous and deeply personal time in their private lives is the subject of Oh Wonder’s fifth studio album, which they shared news of recently in characteristically open style. It’s a brutally honest and powerfully beautiful record, and one that lets listeners into the Oh Wonder fold like never before. As Josephine puts it: “We were just writing songs. We had no idea we were writing a break-up album.”

“22 Break” is a portal into the emotional states surrounding “Don’t Let The Neighbourhood Hear” and the life-changing, universal breakup themes (loneliness, inadequacy, resentment, fears for the future) as experienced in real-time by one couple in their garden shed. In the pandemic’s early phases, Anthony and Josephine worked hard to fill the gap created by the halting effects of lockdown: Anthony even decided to open a coffee shop in Peckham (the gorgeous, meticulously designed Nola), which soon saw round-the-block queues and put many of their touring crew back in work. As they started working on new music, however, all the unspoken tensions between a pair who’d never really known a relationship outside of the band tumbled out. Ultimately, though, the album that almost ended Oh Wonder proved to be the making of them: “22 Break” is a cathartic, quietly hopeful project, the light at the end of the tunnel that was Oh Wonder’s quite particular pandemic.

Not many bands can make a break-up album that culminates in them tying the knot, but then again, Oh Wonder have never been like other bands. Coming out of “22 Break” and all the soul-searching that it forced them to do, Josephine and Anthony finally got married in August this year. Whilst their relationship now has its own space to exist outside of Nola and Oh Wonder, the duo’s crossroads period has accidentally resulted in their most profound work to date.

“It’s awkward, it’s vulnerable, but it also saved us,” adds Josephine. True to their DIY spirit, Oh Wonder has since thrown themselves into a stunning short film that will accompany the full album and is previewed in the visuals unveiled thus far. Oh Wonder also played a very special, one-off show at The Albany Theatre in London yesterday, which sold out in seconds, ahead of a global YouTube stream on October 14th.

NEIKED X MAE MULLER X POLO G

NEIKED X MAE MULLER X POLO G PREMIERE MAGNETIC NEW SINGLE “BETTER DAYS”

British singer/songwriter Mae Muller has joined forces with Swedish hitmaker NEIKED and platinum-selling rapper Polo G for a euphoric new single calledBetter Days. Out via Capitol Records, the track is a high-energy pop anthem whose optimistic outlook is undeniably catchy.

Produced by NEIKED, “Better Days” delivers a dance-ready collision of radiant horns, glittering synth, and pulse-pounding beats, an irresistible setting for Mae’s lush and lovely vocal work. As she voices her longing for a brighter future, Polo G drops in for a heart-on-sleeve verse that perfectly amplifies the tracks hopeful mood.

“Me and NEIKED have been sitting on this song for so long I can’t believe it’s out everywhere, and with Polo G,” says Mae. “I’m such a big fan of him, so to work together was such a dream. I want people to listen to this song and feel happy, to dance, to sing, and just enjoy life. We’ve earned that.

NEIKED adds, “I feel privileged to work with amazing artists like Mae Muller and Polo G. Two great people, and together we’ve created something special! I have been working hard on my upcoming music this year and now is a perfect time to finally share the first piece of the NEIKED puzzle. ‘Better Days’ is like a gracefully cooked palak paneer.

The video for “Better Days,” directed by Tom Dream, is due out soon.

“Better Days” arrives as the latest in a series of exciting collaborations from Mae, including tracks like “When You’re Out” (a June release created with chart-topping British duo Billen Ted). Last year, Mae made waves with her much-acclaimed debut EP, no one else, not even you,” an eight-track project built on her fearlessly honest yet free-spirited approach to songwriting. Made with producers/co-writers like Rick Nowels (Madonna, Lana Del Rey), Jimmy Napes (Sam Smith, Alicia Keys), Skyler Stonestreet (Ariana Grande, Dua Lipa), and Kenny Beats (FKA twigs, Ed Sheeran), the EP brings Mae’s raw vulnerability to an immaculately composed but unpredictable brand of pop music.

About Mae Muller

She’s also stormed her way through the live world, selling out an early 2020 headline tour of the U.K. and earning an adoring worldwide following who’ve come to rely on her uncompromising self-expression. Ahead of her 2022 rescheduled UK tour (including the O2 Forum Kentish Town) this summer has seen Mae take to festival stages across the UK to huge crowds including the likes of Reading & Leeds, Bestival, Latitude and Sundown Festival.

Big Loud Records, Back Blocks Music, and Republic Record’s breakthrough artist Lily Rose continues to deliver new music with the release of the title track from her forthcoming project, “Stronger Than I Am” available everywhere. With the “vocal presence and writing talents that make her poised to take her career to the next level,” (CMT) Rose will release her introductory project Stronger Than I Am, due Oct. 1st.

Marking the fifth song Rose has released from the highly anticipated project, “Stronger Than I Am” dropped alongside a performance-driven lyric video featuring Rose. The ending implies there is more to come and leaves fans hanging as she prepares to release the full project.

“When it comes to ‘Stronger Than I Am,’ I’ve honestly never been more excited for a song,” shares Rose. “When I first heard it, I knew it was a story I would be able to passionately tell and create a moment with fans. It includes everything a great Country song needs: a little bit of sadness, a little bit of drinking, and an incredible hook.”

Written by Griffin Palmer and Geoff Warburton (Shawn Mendez, Demi Lovato), “Stronger Than I Am” is about the struggle of trying to stay strong through heartbreak, admitting sometimes the heartache wins out. Rose walks the listener through the steps she has tried taking in order to move on singing, “I’ve tried taking our pictures off the wall / I’ve tried working from dusk until dawn / I’ve tried all of the friends I can call / Oh but none of it’s helping at all / Something’s that stronger than I am” Rose delivers in the raspy, soulful title track. The project will include two unreleased tracks, accompanied by previous releases “Villain,” “Overnight Sensation,” “Remind Me of You,” “Know My Way Around”, and “I Don’t Smoke.”

Recently featured as part of CMT’s new digital series Viral to Verified, the “rising star” (Billboard) opened up to fans about her whirlwind path to success, from being down to her last dollar to striking a chord with millions of fans worldwide, seemingly becoming “an overnight sensation, 13 years in the making.” Racking up over 78M streams since her Dec. 2020 debut, Rose notched her first number one on Sirius XM’s The Highway Top 30 Countdown and has received critical acclaim from Billboard, Rolling Stone, CMT, Music Row and SPIN.
