About BUNT.

BUNT. is a multi-instrumentalist duo from Stuttgart, Germany composed of Nicolas Crispin and Levi Wijk. True to their name – a word that means colorful in their native language – their sound is a vivid combination of genres, including folk, Americana, soul, jazz and pop. With over 55M streams worldwide to date, BUNT. is one of the most successful and streamed artists from their hometown and is attracting a global following. Their previous single “Sure Don’t Miss You” follows the duo’s early-2019 track, “Oh My Other,” a sweetly lilting track threaded with whistled melodies, stomping rhythms, and high-powered acoustic strumming.

Rolling Stone hailed BUNT. as “the next generation of folk-house” following the release of the single “Harmonica.” Idolator said, “[BUNT.] hits the sweet spot between pop and folk” and Billboard praised their “unabashedly upbeat amalgam of electronic dance music and folksy Americana.” In 2016, BUNT. was selected to co-star alongside Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, as well as produce the music bed, for the Kia Motorsport ‘Soul’ campaign following the duo’s critically acclaimed  single “Old Guitar.” “Old Guitar” reached # 4 on the US Viral chart and #8 on the Global Viral Spotify.

BUNT.’s songs have since been heard in advertising campaigns for ABC, Hollister, Abercrombie & Fitch, Spotify and Fujifilm, among others. Their mixtape series, “Folk-House Chapters,” featuring remixes of popular songs from artists including Vance Joy, Mumford & Sons, Lumineers, Elle King and more, has won the support of major YouTube channel Proximity, which has hosted all five parts of the series to date.

The duo’s official remixes for OneRepublic’s “Let’s Hurt Tonight,” Avicii’s “Without You,” Gryffin’s “Nobody Compares To You” and Spanish singer Alvaro Soler’s “El Mismo Sol” have charted around the world. Their remix of “El Mismo Sol” hit the #1 slot on the Spotify Viral Chart in Spain upon release.  BUNT. will release their upcoming EP later this year via Interscope Records.

WizTheMc – WhoWho

Today, WizTheMc releases his new single “WhoWho,” out now via 10K Projects/Homemade Projects. His latest single shows the South African/German artist moving between singing and rapping as he talks unrequited love. “WhoWho” arrives shortly after the release of singles “For a Minute” and “Lied,” garnering over 9 million streams on Spotify combined.

LISTEN TO “WHOWHO” HERE

Born in Cape Town but raised in Germany, gifted in multiple languages and able to move between genres, from reflective hip-hop to the brightest iteration of pop, 21-year-old WizTheMc is poised to be a global superstar. His breakout single, “For a Minute,” was recorded during quarantine and has already been streamed millions of times. Built around an acoustic guitar loop, the self-produced track has a sweetly sung chorus and a rapped verse, encapsulating Wiz’s dynamic sensibility and skillset. “It’s such a vibe that you don’t realize it’s such a sexual song,” Wiz says. The experience gets deeper with repeated plays.

There’s an ease to Wiz’s latest material—he’s in the midst of recording an album right now—that elides the years of grinding and uncertainty that led him here, to a new deal with Elliot Grainge’s 10K Projects and Homemade Projects. Just days after completing high school in Germany, Wiz flew to Toronto, where he knew no one, to immerse himself in the city’s music scene. Though he initially wrote music in German, he realized he wanted to write in English, both because he wanted to reach more listeners and because he loves the possibilities of the language. Toronto seemed like a good bet—not unlike Germans, Canadians are known to be kind, not as imposing as, say, New Yorkers to a stranger. What was meant to be a short stay turned into a six-month-long trip. It made him realize how much opportunity is waiting for you, if you leave your comfort zone. “Being open can be the most important trait,” he says.

In Toronto, he sharpened his production skills and met close collaborators, like the producer and songwriter Jeff Hazin. Hazin is a crucial part of the team in this new chapter of Wiz’s career. His goal now is to showcase his abilities in full. “I want to change how people think about what a rapper can be. I started rapping on Tyga-type beats and now I’m making pop songs and still staying authentic. I want to have a catalogue where any person in the world could find at least one song to connect to on emotional and musical level.”

A perfect figure for a post-genre world of unbridled expression, Wiz is a globe-trotting singer-songwriter-rapper who learned how to make music with YouTube and who sees borders as arbitrary lines that are easily crossed. “I want people to think and live free,” he says, “and music helps us do that.”

The Brummies Release “After Midnight” Music Video

The Brummies offer a little spice and flavor to the work week with the 80s themed, black-lit music video for “After Midnight.” The Nashville-based, Alabama-bred trio rock out in the basement alongside choreographed aerobic dancers and some creatures of the night inspired by the 1989 family fantasy flick, “Little Monsters.” The band even enlisted some family members and close friends to jump in on the adventure.

“Dazzling summer jam…an irresistible listen, effortlessly riding a wave between shiny pop and rock ‘n’ roll.” – Variance

“Polished, rhythmic rock” – AL.com (Alabama)

“A fluffy hug of indie rock touched with soulful harmonies, funk rockish guitar licks, and blessed by a synth wave softness. The production feels like the all-inclusive hybrid funk rock jams of the 70’s with a twist of big pop that makes it timeless.” – American Pancake

“Certainly a welcome slice of escapism.” – American Songwriter

“Lush” – Rolling Stone

“Shimmering” – Billboard

The Brummies are composed of John Davidson, Jacob Bryant, and Trevor Davis. Known for their fresh blend of urgent rock & roll, dreamy indie-folk, and piercing songwriting, the band has a timeless sound crafted by three players in possession of an almost telekinetic musical shorthand.

“This is our dark disco song,” said Jacob. 

“It started with me playing this rhythm on keys one night,” continued Trevor. “At first, it was this long rocking jam that went into this dark halftime outro.”

“[The harmonies were] particularly fun. I was looking for something that deviated from the main melody in the chorus.” said John. “This song started on a synth, which is the first thing you hear in the song. That was always compelling and it eventually evolved into what is now “After Midnight.”

Variance Magazine, who originally premiered the track, said “It might seem like summer is quickly disappearing (or maybe it feels like it never arrived), but “After Midnight” may just have you thinking twice about that, delivering the perfect escape from these weird times.

Only two years ago, The Brummies made their debut in 2018 with the full-length album Eternal Reach, which received high praise from critics and featured GRAMMY award-winning, singer-songwriter Kacey Musgraves on the song “Drive Away.” The band returned this year with “Hillside,” which featured in the trailer for Dads, a film-festival favorite directed by Bryce Dallas Howard. Their last single “Sunshine” captured the essence of the late Bill Withers, and now “After Midnight” takes listeners to the darkside.

“What a Wonderful World” Music Video

For the first time ever, the Louis Armstrong classic, “What a Wonderful World,” is getting a music video.

The song, which was released in 1967, has become as iconic as Armstrong himself and is Verve‘s most streamed jazz song with more than a billion streams.

You can see the video by clicking right here. With every single frame created by hand by Springtime Jellyfish, it’s beautiful and meticulous enough to make you believe that the world truly can be wonderful, even with everything going on today.

Written by George David Weiss and Bob Thiele, it was meant to heal a nation in the middle race riots and anti-war protests. Does that sound at all familiar? Maybe this is the perfect time for the song’s video to be released.

Louis Armstrong is also the perfect voice for the song of multiple generations.

Bob Thiele said, “We wanted this immortal musician and performer to say, as only he could, the world really is great: full of the love and sharing people make possible for themselves and each other every day.”

Released by ABC Records, it wasn’t originally a hit. It topped charts overseas, but didn’t become a megahit in the United States when it was featured in “Good Morning Vietnam.” It cruised up the Billboard chart to No. 33 and became a mainstay in American pop culture. It was eventually inducted into the GRAMMY Hall of Fame in 1999.

The video was released in honor of Armstrong’s birthday, premiering on Facebook and reaching over 5 million views.

It’s now available right here for anyone to see and be reminded of how wonderful the world truly is.
