Mufasa × Hypeman × Dopamine

Following the runaway success of the viral single “Friday”–which has garnered a staggering half a billion streams, shot to the Top 5 in the UK and been certified platinum with over 750,000 UK sales – the exciting duo Mufasa & Hypeman recently teamed up again with DJ/producer collective Dopamine for their new single ‘Weekend’ via Ministry Of Sound Recordings/RCA Records. They release the video for the single which sees Mufasa & Hypeman travelling back in time to an ‘80s house party with a special throwback performance from Dopamine.

The Alexander Lamburini directed visual is the perfect pairing for the infectious single “Weekend” which was released in time for the August Bank Holiday weekend and offers a sprinkling of nostalgia with its reworking of Madonna’s 80s pop classic “Holiday.” Hypeman & Mufasa, with Dopamine on production and vocals, have set the agenda for many weekends to come with the addictive track that has already racked up over two million streams since release and been added to playlists on Capital FM and Kiss FM and received numerous plays on Radio 1 Dance Anthems.

Speaking on the single, Mufasa said: “We wanted to do something different and pay homage to Madonna with the 80s classic song, ‘Holiday’ but with our little twist. We decided to declare the weekend a Holiday because who doesn’t love the weekend?” Hypeman said: “We always try to be better than our last and with this new single, I know we did just that. Creating the weekend was not only fun for us, but relatable for everyone around the world” Dopamine vocalist Sam Harper added: ‘It feels like the right time to bring joy to the world by getting everybody back on the dancefloor. We’ve been working hard to capture that energy in our records and can’t wait to see everyone’s reactions.” Dopamine DJ, Ethan Porte added: “I can’t wait to start playing this one in my sets. If ‘Friday’ is anything to go by, people are going to love this one”

Mufasa & Hypeman are the unlikely duo that shot to global fame following the release of their iconic viral adaptation of MK’s legendary remix for Nightcrawlers’ club classic ‘Push The Feeling On’. The video has spread joy to millions of people around the world during lockdown and became an instant hit on TikTok with the likes of Katy Perry, Kanye West and Gordon Ramsay paving the way for a challenge which would see tens of thousands of people get involved. The viral video was also picked up by BBC’s The One Show and featured as part of Radio 1 Greg James’ Lockdown Awards. 

Dopamine is the brainchild of a set of visionary music producers who have produced multi-platinum smashes across the globe under various other guises and have dominated the charts with feel-good, club-ready dance records. The DJ/producer collective also includes vocalist Sam Harper who also provided the vocals for the last smash single “Friday”.

half•alive – Make of It

Long Beach based trio half•alive released their new single “Make of It” along with the music video via RCA Records. Watch HERE. “Make of It” is written by half•alive and OJIVOLTA (Kanye West, Shawn Mendes, Justin Bieber, Halsey, Jon Bellion) and produced by OJIVOLTA. The video is directed by Emma Portner.

Josh Taylor from half•alive says, “as always, there’s so many stories that went into the making of this song. writing, production, etc. but there was one moment of clarity in the writing process one night that felt like the crux to unlock this very personal story of mine which became Make of It. That moment happened when our producer Mark (of OJIVOLTA) stared at me during one of our writing sessions & abruptly asked “do you ever get mad? if so, would a half•alive fan who doesn’t speak English be able to tell if you were just from your tone?” After thinking about the question for a while, I came to realize that there was an anger-sized hole missing in our songs. There were stories that I was restricting myself from writing because I wanted them to be perfectly processed, with happy endings to tie everything together. but sometimes the unprocessed, unhindered emotion is what the song needs. when that was realized, i turned on my mental faucet of unfiltered anger, 45 minutes later, the song was done.”

“Make of It” follows previously released tracks “Summerland,” “Time 2,” and “What’s Wrong” which came out earlier this year. “What’s Wrong,” which was “Most Added” at Alt Radio around its launch, had garnered over 12.2 million streams worldwide. half•alive also performed it on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! last month. Check it out HERE.

Additionally, the band is wrapping up a run of headlining west coast shows with a stop at The Wiltern in Los Angeles tonight and Life is Beautiful Music & Art Festival this Sunday. Next week, half•alive will be hitting the road with Twenty One Pilots on their almost sold out “Takeøver Tour” which starts in Denver, CO on September 22nd. Find the tour schedule HERE.

Keep Cool × Yours Truly × Adidas Originals – Songs from Scratch: Volume 1

KEEP COOL PARTNERS WITH YOURS TRULY AND ADIDAS ORIGINALS TO RELEASE SONGS FROM SCRATCH: VOLUME 1, A COMPILATION EP

SONGS FROM SCRATCH: VOLUME 1 FEATURES NEW MUSIC FROM VANJESS, BIBI BOURELLY, TONE STITH AND MORE

LISTEN HERE

In 2019, Keep Cool partnered with creative agency Yours Truly and adidas Originals to bring 80+ vocalists, instrumentalists, producers, songwriters, and the one and only Babyface to a historic mansion in Los Angeles to write, record and build together. After a full week of sessions and 120 songs recorded, Keep Cool/RCA Records finally release the compilation EP, Songs From Scratch: Volume 1. Listen HERE.

Songs From Scratch: Volume 1 is a continuation of the adidas Originals and Yours Truly’s long-running Songs from Scratch series that has produced songs from Chance the Rapper, Kelela, Brent Faiyaz, Kehlani, Ty Dolla $ign, Mura Masa, Danny Brown, and more. 

Songs from Scratch curator, Will Abramson says, Songs from Scratch Vol. 1, is a natural extension of our ambition to put artists into positions where they can make things that surprise them, and us. For 9 years we’ve curated smaller 1:1 pairings but we always wondered: what would happen if we put a whole bunch of artists and producers in one place, took really good care of them and let them run free? We’re grateful to Keep Cool and adidas originals for helping make that dream a reality.

Keep Cool co-founder and EVP of A&R at RCA Records, Tunji Balogun says: We started Keep Cool with the goal of bringing people together in the name of creativity, inclusivity and great art. Partnering with Adidas on Creator Camp was a magical opportunity to connect artists from all walks of life in an unfiltered, authentic environment that exemplified the power of music in creating bonds and bringing creatives together.

The official camp documentary, produced by Yours Truly, is a kaleidoscopic vision of camp, featuring appearances from Babyface, Smino, Ant Clemons, Victoria Monet, Jozzy, Dijon, Umi, Ruel, D’Mile, Xavier Omär, and more. Watch HERE.
