About Trippie Redd:

One of the most versatile and creatively daring artists in hip-hop today, Trippie Redd makes music that’s both wildly experimental and massively appealing. Since delivering his debut mixtape A Love Letter to You in 2017, the multi-platinum-selling, chart-topping rapper, singer and songwriter has continually defied genre boundaries, embedding his melodic take on rap with frenetic elements of rock-and-roll and heavy metal. And with his penetrating lyrics and nuanced but hard-hitting vocal performance, the 21-year-old Ohio native matches that endless ingenuity with a powerfully raw emotional impact.

A self-professed workaholic who’s now debuted five consecutive projects in the top 5 of the Billboard 200 chart —Trippie got his start as a teenager “living in a basement with roaches recording music,” as he tells it. Born Michael Lamar White IV and raised in Canton, Ohio, he grew up on hip-hop icons like Tupac Shakur, Nas, and Jay-Z, but later became fascinated with the shock-rock of Slipknot and Rob Zombie. As he recalls, the urge to create his own music arose soon after his older brother (an aspiring rapper who went by the name Dirty Redd) died in a car accident when Trippie was 10. (“I took his dream and did it myself,” Trippie says now.) Drawing much of his inspiration from the free-flowing style and inventive lyricism of Lil Wayne, Trippie began recording in his cousin’s basement and later relocated to Atlanta to further hone his skills, quickly landing a record deal with 10K Projects.

Though 2020 brought its fair share of adjustments, Trippie used his time in quarantine to make some of his boldest career moves yet, including making his acting debut during an episode of Lil Dicky’s critically acclaimed DAVE and headlining Rolling Loud’s Loud Stream. Trippie also dropped his highly anticipated album, Pegasus, on Halloween. The mythical LP, which debuted at #2, included the intoxicating “Excitement” featuring PARTYNEXTDOOR and highlighted Trippie bridging the generational gap with the legendary Busta Rhymes on “I Got You.” The deluxe version of Pegasus comes in the form of NEON SHARK: Presented By Travis Barker, released in February.

Machine Gun Kelly – papercut

Fresh off his newly minted VMA nomination for “my ex’s best friend,” Machine Gun Kelly embarks on his new journey this week. After announcing his sixth album, born with horns, via a tattoo posted to his social media on Monday, Machine Gun Kelly tapped renowned director Cole Bennett to helm Bennett’s first-ever rock video “papercuts” and the results prove excellent. The video will make its online debut on Cole Bennett’s Lyrical Lemonade Channel. There’s a black and white clip at the start that finds a bald and tattoo-less MGK riding down Sunset Boulevard in a motorcycle with horns. As he continues his expedition as rock’s newest superstar, MGK candidly acknowledges his constant struggles with fame and more. The “papercuts” video made its broadcast premiere on MTV Live, MTVU and the ViacomCBS Times Square billboard.

Watch HERE

MGK’s upcoming album, born with horns, follows his 2020 platinum album, Tickets To My Downfall, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and received multiple awards, including an MTV VMA, Billboard Awards for “Top Rock Album” and “Top Rock Artist” and an iHeart Radio Award. Tickets To My Downfall has been called a “game changing record” by Nylon Magazine and W Magazine recently noted “the album’s outstanding commercial success has recalibrated the landscape of the music industry.”  Travis Barker will serve as the project’s executive producer for the second consecutive album.

Last week, MGK delivered a surprise performance at Chicago’s Lollapalooza Festival. There, he performed “my ex’s best friend,” “bloody valentine,” and a cover of Paramore’s “Misery Business” for his ravenous fans. This fall, he will kick off his sold-out Tickets To My Downfall Tour, beginning September 9 in Minneapolis, MN, and concluding December 18 in his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio. So far in 2021, Tickets To My Downfall is the biggest rock album, according to MRC Data.

Written By Wolves × Trenton Woodley – Better Luck Next Time

New Zealand’s highest streaming rock band, Written By Wolves, have recruited Trenton Woodley of Hands Like Houses for a reimagined version of “Better Luck Next Time.” Stream here.

The new single takes a tongue-in-cheek look at one of the only inevitable facts of life: no matter what we do, no one gets out alive. Woodley not only contributed vocals, but also co-produced/mixed the track and starred in the corresponding music video directed by Written By Wolves guitarist, Bahador Borhani.

“Better Luck Next Time” is the second single from Written By Wolves’ upcoming EP, The Collab Project, due out on September 17 (self-release). The 5-track EP is a collection of re-imagined collaborations of tracks from their debut album Secrets, released in late 2019. In addition to Woodley, Kellin Quinn (Sleeping With Sirens), Sonny Sandoval (P.O.D.) and others have collaborated on tracks for the EP.

Written By Wolves vocalist Michael Murphy shares, “The Collab Project is an on-going initiative to try and spread awareness, and to remind our fans and our followers, that no matter what they are going through, no matter what mental health struggles or demons they are going through right now, they don’t have to do it alone and they don’t have to deal with it on their own.” He adds, “The aim is to help normalize talking about our mental health issues and to help to breakdown the stigma attached to mental health.” Watch the band’s video explanation of The Collab Project here.

Written By Wolves are a fresh and progressive cinematic rock band and one of the most exciting new rock acts to come from New Zealand in recent years. Renowned for their highly energetic live show, the band have already shared the stage with international heavyweights such as Machine Gun Kelly, Limp Bizkit, Pendulum, Sublime With Rome, Suicidal Tendencies, We The Kings and Four Year Strong, to name just a few. Since forming in 2014, the band has amassed over 310,000 monthly listeners and more than 36 million streams on Spotify, as well as over 100,000 subscribers and 46 millions views on YouTube.

Siiikbrain × Silence

Siiikbrain, aka Caroline Miner Smith, released the music video for her most recent single Silence.

Experimental rock artist Siiickbrain has unveiled her latest single, Silence, today. The intoxicating track pairs the artist’s unique blend of sensual singing, soul-capturing screams, and emotionally gripping lyrics. The accompanying video is premiering exclusively with NYLON today.

“The song, which kicks off as an angsty and tumultuous hyperpop track about the trappings of love, gets amped up several notches during its screamed intermission.” – NYLON

“While recording this song, I was thinking about how love can make you blind to how toxic a situation can be,” Siiickbrain shares on her release. “The video is based around the idea that in your mind you see things differently than how they really are when you’re drowning in emotions. For the video, I also wanted it to be really stylized and just lean into the fashion side of things in a really creative way.”

Siiickbrain is the musical persona of Caroline Miner Smith. She grew up in a rural town and was always drawn to music but was afraid to dive in fully. While establishing herself as a highly desired model in New York City, Caroline started writing poetry as a means to cope with her own anxiety and personal demons. After moving to Los Angeles, Caroline was hit with a very close personal loss. “I really was hit with the reality that life is too fragile. I want to do what makes me happy and realized that I had nothing to lose by taking this leap. I just want to reach people and help them feel empowered to be themselves.”

Most recently, Siiickbrain joined Skrillex and Swae Lee on their propulsive track, Too Bizarre. She also teamed up with incomparable Russian protest art collective Pussy Riot to unleash an electrifying anthem, POWER, which drives home the idea that women can take back any power that was ever taken from them. Inspired by her favorite movie Fight Club, the music video showcases an all-female cast of bright, young rising stars like phem, Chloe Chaidez, and more fighting it out, highlighting the raw power of women. The video was directed and produced by Andrew Sandler and part of the team behind Machine Gun Kelly’s Downfalls High, which Siiickbrain appeared in.

The visually-stunning music video is yet another iteration of Siiikbrain’s edgy, intoxicating, impactful style. Paired with her unique vocals and heart-thumping beat, this video is a must-see.

JENA ROSE — CHECKMATE

JENA ROSE’S “CHECKMATE” DEBUTS IN TOP 10 ON MTV

The larger-than-life music video has amassed just shy of 1M views since dropping on Friday

‘Jena Rose is entering the race for song of the summer with her latest single, “Checkmate”’ – US WEEKLY

Following its release on Friday, Jena Rose debuted her latest music video “Checkmate” in the Top 10 on MTV’s Friday Live show with Kevan Kenney. The larger-than-life music video is quickly approaching 1M views since dropping on Friday. You can watch the video HERE.

Featured by Entertainment Tonight, US Weekly, BELLO Magazine, Just Jared and more, Jena’s latest track, released via Gem Street Music and Sweety High, was inspired by “The Queen’s Gambit” and her lifelong fascination with chess. “Checkmate” visually follows Jena as she takes the power back in a toxic relationship.

Christened a “tour de force” by American Songwriter, Jena broke down the new track saying: “Relationships and chess have a lot more in common than I ever considered, until I had one that woke me up… ‘Checkmate’ is a homage to all the girls who’ve had to act strategically to protect their hearts.”

Written with Nick Furlong (Machine Gun Kelly, 5 Seconds of Summer) and produced by Chapters (Simon Jay and Luke Shrestha), the high-energy track features Jena’s signature brand of pop with nods to 80s influences Duran Duran and Depeche Mode.

“Checkmate” kicks off an exciting new chapter for Jena Rose and previews her forthcoming debut EP “Baby, Maybe.” The project is slated for release later this year and will feature collaborations with all-star co-writers/producers including Furlong and John Feldmann (Blink 182, Panic! At The Disco). The new track follows her 2020 release, “Forever Yours (ft. Casper Magico)” which earned global recognition, over 6M streams, and was featured on the soundtrack for the 2020 Netflix film Work It.

ABOUT JENA ROSE:

Growing up with a father who immigrated from Cuba and a mom raised in Chicago, Jena was inspired by a wide array of musical influences from a very young age. Displaying a precocious talent early on, she started playing her own songs on tour with AJR, Echosmith and Why Don’t We when she was only 17-years-old. Trained as a multi-instrumentalist, singer and dancer, with over 1M social followers and 10M likes, she is an artist to watch in 2021. Gearing up for a slate of releases, fashion week, and her debut EP, Rose will be back on tour just as soon as the world allows.

Gem Street Music, based in LA and Nashville, was created as a solution to a new music market that requires artists to drive continual growth across their digital platforms. Their core business, spanning from A&R and content production to growth and distribution, delivers the cultural scale essential to building real fan bases and driving positive ROI.

Presale Begins Thursday June 10

General Onsale Monday June 14

BUKU Music + Art Project, New Orleans’s premiere multi-faceted boutique music festival, announced the lineup for BUKU: Planet B, a one-time-only fall iteration of its flagship spring event. Planet B offers up an alternative way to dance through the rabbit-hole of BUKU on the banks of the Big Easy. Aiming to celebrate the resiliency of New Orleans and the triumphant return of live music, BUKU: Planet B is purposefully boutique in size but captures the expansive multi-genre curatorial ethos of BUKU, welcoming over 50 acts to its creative playground on October 22-23, 2021.

For the past decade, BUKU has fostered a boutique festival experience that proudly reflects the diverse and progressive subculture of New Orleans. It’s birthed the #BUKREWE, a community of festival lovers, carnival kings and queens, ragers and twerkers, that come in all shapes and sizes, flowing together along the banks of the Mississippi. Those in the know can attest to the wild costumes, unhinged self-expression, and myriad of personalities that set the BUKU vibe from start to finish and have made it one of North America’s most authentic places to party. 

Continuing its melting pot approach to curation, BUKU: Planet B welcomes a lineup that spans genre and style. Topping the bill are some of modern music’s biggest stars like powerhouse hip-hop icon Megan Thee Stallion, melodic bass music’s ultimate champion Illenium, pop-punk vocalist Machine Gun Kelly, experimental rapper Playboi Carti, and Memphis rap chart-topper Pooh Shiesty

As you would expect in New Orleans, dancing takes center stage at Planet B with the cutting-edge eclecticism of producers Kaytranada and Jamie xx, Australian dance music producer and vocalist Alison Wonderland, and the trio of bass titans Zeds Dead, Subtronics, and SVDDEN DEATH: VOYD. Adding to the diverse vibe, Chris Lake and Purple Disco Machine will also treat the #BUKREWE to their discography of genre-defining house heaters. 

Forward-thinking live performances remain in focus at Planet B with feel-good frequencies from singer Still Woozy, bone-crushing vibes from industrial rap/metal artist Ghostemane, next gen star British singer-songwriter and poet Arlo Parks, genre-bending rap/electro-pop performer Ashnikko, and high-energy rappers EARTHGANG, Flo Milli, slowthai, Yung Baby Tate, and $NOT. 

As a barometer for the sounds taking over tomorrow, BUKU: Planet B welcomes breakout stars like Remi Wolf, Dua Saleh, Moore Kismet, VNSSA, 박혜진 Park Hye Jin, TVBOO and others, plus over 20 local New Orleans acts in an effort to showcase and support the local arts community, including the first festival performance by Pell’s GLBL WRMNG collective.

“For the past year, we’ve watched our fans step outside of their comfort zones and persevere through weird times,” said Dante DiPasquale, BUKU’s co-creator.  “PLANET B is the result of us being inspired by them to do the same, and all of us at Team BUKU are excited to finally party with them again.”

Set against the uniquely New Orleans backdrop of the haunting Market Street Power Plant and the historic grounds of the old TwiRoPa venue, Planet B aims to harness the chaos of the last year and release it in the form of raw creativity. Attendees will be guided between multiple stage environments, a dizzying landscape of art installations, street-artist performances, and a multitude of surprises. Fans may find themselves mesmerized by a local graffiti artist, enhancing their costume with a custom face painting, joining a marching band procession, catching a pop-up breakdancing crew or just hanging with friends while gazing at the New Orleans skyline. It’s an urban oasis as much about oddities and community as it is about the headliners.

Civic duty too remains at the heart of the BUKU spirit, as the event organizers continue their Social Responsibility Commitment to fostering a diverse and inclusive environment geared towards social justice, reducing the environmental impact of the event, and supporting New Orleans community organizations. BUKU doubled down on this commitment in 2020 alongside its charitable partner Upbeat Academy by launching their Take Action Project (“TAP”). Thus far, the project has completed three fan-mobilizing campaigns raising over $10,000 for racial justice, voting rights, and environmental sustainability organizations. BUKU will continue this mission in 2021 alongside Upbeat Academy, a non-profit that inspires and empowers New Orleans youth through music education, who also act as the beneficiary of proceeds from every ticket sold to BUKU or Planet B. Learn more about these programs here

BUKU: Planet B will be the ultimate release for music fans in dire need of connection and creative exploration. It will continue to provide an inclusive home for the technicolor characters that call New Orleans home while welcoming #BUKREWE far and wide to experience the city’s eccentric culture for themselves. Come and get it.
