Dreamer Boy × All Our Dreams Came True Tour

Nashville’s genre-blurring singer/songwriter Dreamer Boy has announced his first ever headline tour. The All Our Dreams Came True tour will kick off on September 22 in Atlanta, GA, and run through October 4 in Los Angeles, CA. Dreamer Boy (Zach Taylor) will have support along the tour route from GRANDMA, Jack Larsen, May Rio, carwash and others.

Back in April, Dreamer Boy released his critically acclaimed album All The Ways We Are Together via slowplay and Harvest Records. The release on Earth Day was tied into various activations core to who Zach Taylor is as an artist and as a human. Streams from the album helped to plant 1,500 trees in partnership with One Tree Planted. This fall, fans will have the chance to hear the hazy, sentimental tracks off of this record live, as they were intended to be enjoyed. Purchase tickets HERE.

For Zach Taylor optimism is a calling. With a smile that hardly ever leaves his face, the 24-year-old songwriter/singer explains that the misty, shape-shifting pop music he’s made for the last few years as Dreamer Boy has been a way of accomplishing a grander aim. “I want to spread love and light and joy,” he says, matter-of-factly. And spread that he’s done, whether on the road with friends Clairo, Omar Apollo, and Still Woozy, or on the themes of his new release, All the Ways We Are Together. Dreamer Boy’s purpose has become clearer over time, and, in the spirit of unity and harmony, the Nashville-based singer and songwriter chose Earth Day as his album’s release date.

Toosii × Head Over Hills

Toosii, a member of the 2021 XXL Freshman Class, is back with a brand new song, “head over hills.” While his previous record found his “heart cold” after a break-up, a renewed sense of hope infuses “head over hills,” as Toosii delivers a moving declaration of love and devotion, accompanied by emotive keyboards and a soulful guitar. The track was produced by ThatBossEvan (Lil Durk, YXNG K.A) and Rocky. Download / stream HERE. View the official video HERE.

The Syracuse-born, North Carolina-raised rapper who has surpassed one billion combined global streams across all of his songs  will return to the road next Friday, July 23, with an opening day performance at Rolling Loud Festival. He’ll launch his first-ever U.S. headline outing in the fall. Tickets are on sale HERE.

Being selected as a member of the 2021 XXL Freshman Class has given Toosii a new platform for creative expression. Earlier this week, he and fellow freshman Blxst shared this cypher. In hisFreshman Freestyle, he took the opportunity to pay tribute to his mother.

Released earlier this month, “heart cold” was included in Uproxx’s round-up of “All The Best New Music From This Week.” Brooklyn Vegan said, “[Toosii’s] croon sounds great on this catchy, melancholic song” and Okayplayer hailed the accompanying visual as one of the “Best Rap Videos of the Week.”

Toosii’s early 2021 mixtape, Thank You For Believing (South Coast Music Group/Capitol Records), earned praise from critics and tastemakers alike, including The Fader, Complex andThe Source. HotNewHipHop observed, “He’s one of the strongest young faces rising in the rap game, impressing the masses with his emotional melodies and his raw storytelling.” XXL hailed “55” ft Latto as one of the “Best Hip-Hop Songs of 2021 So Far.”

Propelled by his gift for drenching real lyrics in rich emotion, Toosii has proven himself to be one of rap’s most relatable rising stars, able to touch hearts and minds with his honest tales of street life and lost love, detailing his journey from a lost kid surrounded by tragedy to a national sensation full of promise.

Mabel – Let Them Know

Mabel is back today with the brand new single “Let Them Know,” which is available now on Capitol Records. Listen here and watch the video here.

It’s the first new music of 2021 from Mabel, who in the last year or so alone has won the BRIT Award for Best Female Solo Artist, surpassed 4 billion streams and 2.2 million adjusted album sales for first album “High Expectations” (the biggest-selling debut by a British woman in 2019), and added to her formidable catalogue of smash hits like “Don’t Call Me Up” with 3 more top 10s under lockdown.

Futuristic, fearless and feel-good, “Let Them Know” is the unmistakable arrival of a new era and mindset for Mabel. Written alongside friends and close collaborators Raye, SG Lewis and MNEK, it’s an anthem about dressing up (with nowhere to go), and projecting confidence (even in times of trouble). On “Let Them Know” – and much more new music to come – Mabel’s girl-next-door candor remains, but her superstar-status shines brighter than ever before.

Mere weeks after she won her first BRIT Award – and midway through touring “High Expectations” – the world stopped: and for Mabel, a rare moment to pause and process an astonishing few years in the public eye came with it. At the beginning of the pandemic Mabel moved back in with her parents, threw herself into dance classes, and channeled everything she missed (close friends, the big night out, young love, feeling unafraid) into this brand new musical chapter. Within, songs distil the sweaty, grotty and frankly unglamorous side of noughties club land – as lost to the pandemic – alongside deeper cultural influences for Mabel: “Let Them Know”, for instance, was inspired by obsessively re-watching “Paris Is Burning,” “Pose” and “Drag Race,” while reflecting on dance music’s generational ethos of expression, liberation and inclusion.

While “Let Them Know” sounds, inadvertently, like the world opening up again, its unapologetic spirit is ultimately dedicated to anyone who’s ever felt less than. For herself as much as her legion of young fans, in 2021 it is time – finally – to “Let Them Know” that you’re that bitch.

Terrell Hines Releases New Single Radon Dungeon

Today, Georgia-born, Los Angeles-based pop visionary Terrell Hines released his new single, “Radon Dungeon.” On the effortlessly smooth, funk-laced track, Hines conjures up visions of a toxic, worse-case scenario but emerges with a seductive anthem worthy of a post-apocalyptic discothèque. As Substream Magazine observed upon the release of his 2019 debut EP, he’s “an artist that knows there’s nothing he can’t turn into song.” Listen HERE. The accompanying visualizer, which was shot in his hometown of Atlanta, was directed by Jelani Miller (SoFaygo, Tony Shhnow, 10KDunkin). View HERE

“’Radon Dungeon’ is world of fun -an underground space for the outcasts of society,” says Terrell Hines.

“Radon Dungeon” is the follow-up to the euphoric “Who Do You Love?,” which Netflix tapped to fuel its summer movie preview. Hines, hailed as a “Breakout Emerging Artist” by Billboard, has already amassed more than five million streams without releasing an album or touring the U.S. He displays a polymathic musicality, honed in part during his studies on scholarship at Berklee College of Music. In 2019, he appeared on the title track to Beck’s Hyperspace album and saw a major boost after his song “Get Up” was used during an Apple Keynote.

In 2020, Hines released his first tape, Portal One: The Mixtape, a nine-track project that featured the raw energy of live instrumentation. Watching the events of the summer unfold prompted him to remix “Get Up,” adding a new verse from Vince Staples. NPR Music observed, “…in the context of this summer’s movement, lyrics like ‘I’ve been waiting my whole life’ along with the driving percussion and the increasing desperation in Hines’s voice, begin to take the shape of shouts for justice in a protest moving down a city block.” In October, he released the electrifying single “We’re All Gonna Be Killed,” which reflected on “the tension of 2020 so far.”

Hines creates an entire ecosystem for his songs, where sonic structures and lyrics are just as likely to be inspired by the sociopolitical as the personal, by functional architecture as abstract art, by the austere science of survivalism as the limitless potential of technology. The best part is, you don’t have to know all that to feel the holistic magic of his work.

STREAM THE VOICE OF THE HEROES HERE

Lil Baby and Lil Durk have unleashed their long-awaited project The Voice Of The Heroes via Quality Control Music / Wolfpack Global Music / Motown Records / Alamo Records. The Voice Of The Heroes is one of the year’s most highly anticipated albums, with the Atlanta and Chicago rap giants teaming up for a supercharged project that features the likes of Travis Scott, Meek Mill, Young Thug, and Rod Wave. The album release is accompanied by a cinematic new Daps directed video for “How It Feels” that follows Baby and Durk on a jewelry heist, symbolizing their newfound ‘Robin Hood’ roles of taking from the rich and returning to the less fortunate.

NBA superstar James Harden is credited as an executive producer of The Voice Of The Heroes, as he was played a role in the inception of the project and Lil Baby spent considerable time in Harden’s studio to record.

Harden also previewed snippets of the album on Instagram earlier this week, giving fans another taste of what the album had in store. 

Lil Baby recently added to his trophy case last week at the 2021 iHeartRadio awards, bringing home the award for Hip Hop Album Of The Year. His recent track “We Win” with Kirk Franklin from the Space Jam: A New Legacy Official Soundtrack has garnered widespread acclaim, amassing over 4 million streams and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Gospel Songs chart. This marks the 8th Hot Gospel Songs No. 1 of Kirk Franklin’s career and the 1st for Lil Baby.

Slatt Zy - East Lake Projects

Slatt Zy – East Lake Projects

Rising Chattanooga, Tennessee, rapper Slatt Zy introduces the world to the neighborhood that shaped him to be the 18-year-old man he is today through his new project, East Lake Projects, out today on 100k Management. The release is named after the housing development he was raised in alongside his musically inclined family of 11 brothers and sisters. Fans of Slatt Zy will quickly recognize his effortless flow, which moves from melodic, growled bars to more mournful, introspective lines. Listen HERE. Watch the new video directed by Jordan Spencer for  “First Year (feat. Pooh Shiesty) HERE.

“East Lake Projects is where I became a man. It was tough to value life there, and getting over that made me a man. To me it ‘s more than projects – it ‘s my family, and we got through together. 17 people in 2 rooms, 12 people sleeping on one floor ߝ granny, 11 siblings, auntie. We been through struggles together.” Says Slatt Zy.  “We been through everything -shoot outs, hungriness, shoeless, people dying. East Lake Projects is where all my problems came from and made me grown early, but my happy times came from there too. I couldn ‘t imagine any other way to be. The projects may have given me scars and bruises, but also motivated me to be the nigga I am today. “

While Zy ‘s April debut, Zy Story, introduced audiences to his unique vocal approach and innate ear for melody, East Lake Projects showcases a more vulnerable, personal side of the rapper. On the first track,  “Straight Out Them Projects, “Zy immediately establishes the tone of the record. Over melancholic piano chords, he sings,  “We come from poverty / We had to find a way / Straight out them projects, ain ‘t had shit, I had to find a way. “East Lake Projects is deeply indebted to Zy ‘s childhood, and on the project, he aims to shine a light on the community he grew up in and the violence that still plagues it.

Zy offered a preview of East Lake Projects back in October when he released the video for  “How It Go (feat. Hotboii),” which is at nearly a million views. On the track, Zy takes on the vivacious hook while Hotboii delivers smooth melodic verses. The song is one of the more playful, freewheeling cuts on the project, showing that even when Slatt Zy is excavating his emotions, he ‘s able to turn up too.

Zy prides himself on his incredible work ethic and desire to provide his family a better life. In less than a year, he has released over 10 music videos, in addition to Zy Story. With early support from HotNewHipHop, WorldStarHipHop, SAY CHEESE!, Lyrical Lemonade, and ELEVATOR MAGAZINE, it ‘s clear Slatt Zy is on the way up. Zy has come a long way from sleeping on the living room floor with 11 other people and having to attend school with no shoes to now trading in his braces for his first set of diamond grillz.
