Rosemarie Releases EP Sinnergy

R&B’s newest addition, Rosemarie, has released her debut EP, Sinnergy (Bird Vision Entertainment/Interscope Records). The gorgeous nine-track EP comes packed with poetic lyricism, insatiable melodies and a feature from rap legend Juvenile on track “03 Love” — Rosemarie continues to carve her own space in the ever-evolving genre. Alongside this, fans will also hear previously released tracks “Vision” and “Henny Talk” on Sinnergy. For a full tracklisting see below, and listen to the EP in full here.

Speaking on the EP’s unique title and making of the project, Rosemarie had this to share:

“Personally, I have always struggled with balance, as do many others, and my life and work has mirrored that. The good, bad, light, dark. White lies, hidden truths. It’s a line we all straddle at one point or another. The title is telling of that synergy — the Saint versus Sinner, with an emphasis on Sinner. A quote by Nelson Mandela resonated with me deeply, “I am not a saint unless you think of a saint as a sinner who keeps on trying.” That, in a nutshell, is what I thought prefaced this particular body of work perfectly. I am ecstatic to share this music and have these emotions and moments out in the atmosphere. My highest hope is to have someone somewhere connect with me through my music, like my favorite artists and inspirations, do for me. It’s healing. That energy exchange is powerful, and I can’t wait to further my contributions.” — Rosemarie

THE LAST ARTFUL, DODGR – Lightwork

Undoubtedly one of music’s favorite enigmas, The Last Artful, Dodgr, has been quietly putting in the work catching the attention of music greats like Mark Ronson, Aminé, Anderson .Paak as well as syncs on shows like HBO’s “Euphoria.” Today, the Grammy winning songwriter releases a brand new song called, “Lightwork.” And as the title suggests, creating hook friendly pop music comes effortlessly to Dodgr and it’s no different on this new track. “Lightwork” is groovy in nature and reminiscent of early 80s, new romantics production that is bound to have listeners bouncing in their seats. “Get in… get in… get in a groove” with Dodgr.

Listen to “Lightwork” by The Last Artful, Dodgr here.

About The Last Artful, Dodgr

Born and raised in LA, the genre-bending talent didn’t fully discover her artistic voice until attending Humboldt State University (CA). After graduating from Humboldt, Dodgr took yet another step further into the “fish out of water” mentality, moving to Portland in pursuit of music despite the city’s known reluctance to hip-hop. Noticing a local scene beginning to grow, she quickly developed a loyal following whom she compares to the love of an “adoptive” family. Offering refreshing, genre-agnostic music, she became one of the city’s premiere talents, and eventually met fellow Portland artist Aminé, who invited her to accompany him as a background vocalist during his first late night television performance in 2016. Since then, Dodgr has grown her loyal audience exponentially, even boasting collaborations with Mark Ronson, Anderson .Paak and Portugal. The Man, among others. Now signed to Interscope Records and at work on her debut album, she dares to be different in the age of immediacy — a prideful testament to her resolute character and even more so, a reflection of Dodgr’s artistic integrity.

Rising Hyperpop Artist midwxst New Song – Made It Back

Midwxst, born Edgar Sarratt III, shares the new song and video “Made It Back” via Geffen Records. Directed by Elan Bia / No Soap, the visual is a cinematic sci-fi thriller that merges animations with surrealism for the perfect counterpart to midwxst’s glitched out, genre-crossing sound. The song follows the previously-released single “Ruthless” and his Summer03 EP released earlier this year.

Midwxst is the next generation’s ideal superstar. He’s a cutting-edge artist from the oft-overlooked state of Indiana, a genre-defier combining hyperpop and digicore with hip-hop alongside candid lyrics that reveal he isn’t afraid to let his true feelings show. Midwxst shares, “A lot of people expected me to be a trapper, rapping about guns and all the generic mainstream stuff. When I talk about how your own mental health and emotions can be the most dangerous thing you possess, especially as a teenager or young adult, people get such a different vibe from me and that’s what I strive for.” Midwxst will be performing at Overcast N Friends on October 9th and Day N Vegas Festival November 12th — 14th.

Listen to and watch “Made It Back” above and stay tuned for more from midwxst coming soon.

Tour Dates:

10/9 — Philadelphia, PA @ Overcast N Friends

11/12-14 — Las Vegas, NV @ Day N Vegas

Khea × Julia Michaels × Becky G × Di Genius – Only One

KHEA, JULIA MICHAELS, & BECKY G COME TOGETHER ON NEW SINGLE ONLY ONE FEATURING DI GENIUS 

Buy and stream the song here.

Set To Launch Blockbuster Music Video From Three Perspectives On Each Artist’s Facebook Page

Watch The First Visual Exclusively On Julia Michaels’ Facebook Here 

Three of the hottest artists in the world, KHEA, Julia Michaels, and Becky G, have united for a joint single entitled Only One featuring Di Genius. Get it HERE via This Is M Records/Interscope Records.

This blockbuster collaboration embodies the intersection of genres and cultures on one instantly irresistible bilingual anthem with Argentine trap phenom KHEA, Mexican-American global superstar Becky G, and Southern California-raised Grammy nominated,  multi-platinum singer and songwriter Julia Michaels. It all happens over a laid-back guitar-laden beat from Grammy winning Jamaican producer Di Genius (Drake, Shakira). Read about how the song came together on Rolling Stone, HERE.

This one of a kind effort required an equally massive rollout, so (instead of just one) three music videos will accompany the track. Directed by NAVS and produced by Compostela Films & Arts, the visuals depict a high-octane escape from a futuristic prison shot at the real-life Mira Loma Detention Center in Lancaster, CA (previously used by I.C.E.). In order to tell the story, the artists star in their own respective narratives. Additionally, Di Genius makes a very special cameo, becoming a catalyst for the big break…

The first video, told from Julia’s point-of-view, just premiered exclusively on her Facebook Page. Watch it HERE. The second drops on Becky G’s Facebook Page on July 22nd. The final video premieres on KHEA’s Facebook Page and all video platforms on July 29th.

Oliver Malcolm Remixes Glass Animals – Tokyo Drifting

Rising artist Oliver Malcolm joins Glass Animals front man Dave Bayley for a new episode of “Cereal Bars” — a show where artists share their come up story and freestyle over a beat made fresh by Dave. The result is a cowboy inspired apocalyptic anthem that combines Dave’s beat prowess and Oliver’s imaginative storytelling. In the very special edition of the episode, the young producer/songwriter also shared a remix he made of a Glass Animals’ track; “Tokyo Drifting” featuring Denzel Curry. Watch the full episode and sneak peek of Oliver’s remix here. Listen to the remix of Glass Animals’ “Tokyo Drifting” feat. Denzel Curry here.

The appearance comes at the heels of Oliver Malcolm’s debut EP, Are You Living in The Real World? which features critically acclaimed tracks like “Switched Up,” “Skywalker,” “Helen” and more. Listen to the project in full here.

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. Quick to be praised by the likes of New York Times, TIME Magazine, Pigeons & Planes, Interview Magazine, CLASH, NME and more, Oliver Malcolm is priming his trajectory to be a long and critical one. A multidisciplinary at heart, this is just the beginning of what music lovers can look forward to from the new artist.

Praise for Oliver Malcolm

“Oliver Malcolm is the dynamic rising star ready kick up a storm with his diverse, new punk-indebted EP.” — NME

“With its deep bassline and bluesy melodies alchemizing jazz and pop influences, he crafts an almost tangible atmosphere of melancholy [in “Helen”] as pleas to a woman echo throughout.” — Pigeons & Planes, Best New Artist

“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

“Oliver Malcolm [is] The UK’s Most Talented Bad Boy.” — Interview Magazine

“A lot of artists claim genre-blending style, but Malcolm’s is altogether impossible to define. Is it alt-blues? Dark electro-pop? Folk-hip-hop? Does it matter?” — TIME Magazine, Best New Song

“The hip-hop producer-turned-twisted musical anarchist is making songs for nobody but himself. You’ll love them anyway.” — i-D Magazine

“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 – Are you Living in the Real World?

Rising artist and multi-disciplinarian Oliver Malcolm has released his much anticipated debut project, Are You Living in The Real World?, out now on all platforms via Darkroom/Interscope Records. An eight track effort that cuts through genre lines and mixes punk rock, funk, hip hop production and imaginative storytelling. The end result is a signature catchy, punchy sound that I can’t get enough of. The brilliant debut was written and produced largely by Oliver Malcolm between his two homes in Los Angeles and the U.K. In honor of the milestone, Oliver joined Zane Lowe earlier this morning for his show on Apple Music to share the single “Runaway” exclusively as the day’s World First premiere. Simultaneously, Oliver unveiled the official music video for the track directed by collaborator Kay Ibrahim. To watch the music video, click HERE.

Speaking on his debut EP and inspiration for the title, Oliver had this to share:

“Are You Living In The Real World?” is an introduction to the world of Oliver Malcolm. This EP was made between the UK and LA and is the sonic documentation of the first two years of experimentation with my own artistry. The prologue.” 

Oliver Malcolm has been steadily releasing tracks over the past year in anticipation of his debut project all while gaining momentum and admiration from music critics like the New York Times, TIME Magazine, CLASH and Pigeons & Planes, who named Oliver an “Artist to Watch” last year. Are You Living in The Real World? is a project long in the making and one that marks Oliver’s transition from producer to bonafide artist and performer.
