Muni Long – Hrs and Hrs

Leauxfi‘s The TEN Music Group just earned the #1 R&B single in the country by producing Muni Long‘s “Hrs and Hrs” for her 2021 album, Public Displays of Affection. 

On the track, a steady bassline sets the tone for sultry instrumentals to shine as Muni Long’s angelic voice details a longing and passionate love. The single builds momentum as Muni brings the heat, breaking into a vibrant refrain of “A love like ours, I prayed for it on my knees every night for some hours and hours and hours.”

“Hrs and Hrs” was co-produced by TEN Music Group member Dylan Graham and rising producer Ralph Tiller. The 29-year-old Graham originally hails from Ontario, Canada, but he currently resides in Orlando. He has notably cooked up and composed samples for the last five years and produced the melodies for the track. It also marks the first beat placement for Tiller. He calls Tunisia home, and he started producing seven years ago.

Of the process behind this banger, Tiller states: I got the pack from Dylan. After laying the drums, I made the first version and a second version. The second version is the one that ended up on YouTube, and it had 1 million plays over the course of 8 months until she found it. After a month of the record being out, I saw the song taking off on TikTok. I saw Muni’s Instagram and YouTube, and I knew this record was special. It was getting bigger and bigger every day, every time I looked at it. I received a call from her at that point to handle the business side. We were all so excited! The challenge really took off and it was so crazy to see. We’re all super excited to see where this goes.”

The TEN Music Group is a collective of talented producers all at the launching point of their careers. They’ve already had high-profile placements on tracks for artists such as Lil TJay, Yung Bans, Boosie Badazz, and more.

Stay tuned for even more to come from this talented group of producers and artists.

JOHN K – A LOT

The RIAA-certified platinum pop singer/songwriter John K celebrated the new year by releasing his hot new single, “A LOT.” Listen to the song HERE via Epic Records and watch the music video HERE.

The track produced by WYNNE [MGK, Jaden Smith] was created and written in collaboration by John and songwriter Steph Jones. Steph, too, co-wrote John’s critically acclaimed single, “if we never met.” Throughout his new single, “A LOT,” John seemingly sings out to an ex-lover while guitar riff blends in the background. John references his ex directly, pondering, “Do you ever wear my sweatshirt when it’s colder?” As the chorus sets off, John declares, “I think about you a lot.”

John spoke about the single and its meaning, stating, “I never realized how often I say the word ‘a lot’ until I wrote this song. The story is about that feeling when you can’t get someone out of your head, except for now that person is out of the picture. It’s about replaying memories over and over, thinking about the person you wish you never lost. A simple concept really, but I felt like it was one my fans would relate to right away. You ever mess something up so bad and then all you have left is the memory of how good it used to be? That’s A LOT.”

The music video was directed by Erik Rojas [Jessie J, Dillon Francis] and illustrates the lyrics that John sings to a tee. Throughout the video, the camera cuts to reminiscent times shared between lovers to scenes of John alone at the bar.

John joins Marc E. Bassy on his North American winter tour. The tour is set to begin on February 14 at the Varsity Theater in Minneapolis, MN, continuing through many top locations throughout the country, concluding March 12 in San Diego, CA at Observatory North Park.

Eddie Vedder Newest Single From Earthling

Eddie Vedder releases a new single entitled “Brother the Cloud.” It heralds the arrival of his highly anticipated new album, Earthling, available on February 11th via Seattle Surf/Republic Records. The digital/cd/vinyl/cassette pre-order for Earthling just went live on all streaming platforms here.

 Earthling, which was produced by Grammy Award® winning producer Andrew Watt, is Vedder’s first album since 2011’s Ukulele Songs and his first solo tour in over a decade.

 The track is the latest single off the new album and joins previously released tracks: “Long Way,” which Variety noted, the strident, guitar-driven “Long Way” finds Vedder narrating a tale of a man haunted by a lost love,” and “The Haves” which Stereogum described “a searching heart ballad about personal connection, and it addresses the increasing divide between rich and poor.”

 Earthling illuminates every side of Vedder and includes collaborations with some of music’s most iconic legends including Stevie Wonder, Ringo Starr, Elton John, as well as Andrew Watt, Chad Smith, and Josh Klinghoffer.

 In order to bring the album to life on stage, Eddie Vedder and bandmates the Earthlings will hit the road in a series of U.S. concert dates in February for The Earthlings Tour 2022. The shows kick off on February 3 in New York and wrap up on February 22 in Vedder’s hometown of Seattle. Special guest Glen Hansard will open the shows. See full tour dates below.

About Eddie Vedder

Eddie Vedder has served as Pearl Jam’s frontman, in addition to a guitarist and primary lyricist, since 1990. Inducted to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2017 as a member of Pearl Jam, Vedder’s trademark vocal style inspired a generation. His energetic and unvarnished stage presence coupled with his honest conversations with the audience led Pearl Jam as pioneers in live performances and social justice.

Vedder’s signature ethos carries into his solo work. His first project came out in 2007 with the soundtrack album for the film Into the Wild and earned him a Golden Globe for the song “Guaranteed.” In 2012, Vedder’s sophomore solo album, Ukulele Songs, received a Grammy nomination for Best Folk Album. Most recently, he collaborated with Glen Hansard for the Flag Day Original Motion Picture soundtrack and has released tracks off his forthcoming solo album Earthling.

Eddie Vedder was born in Evanston, Ill., on December 23, 1964 where he became a lifelong Chicago Cubs fan before moving with his family to San Diego County in the mid-1970s. It was in southern California that Vedder began to play guitar and learned to surf.

In 1990, Vedder received a tape of a band from Seattle that needed a singer. Vedder wrote lyrics for three of the songs, mailed it back to Seattle, and the songs ultimately became the Pearl Jam songs “Alive”, “Footsteps” and “Once”. Vedder moved north and was recruited by Ament, Gossard and McCready to join their new band, known then as Mookie Blaylock before becoming Pearl Jam.

Vedder’s lyrics address many of the key issues of our times including gun violence, racism, and climate change. In addition to the activism inherent to the music, Vedder is an outspoken advocate for several progressive, social, and political causes, most notably abortion access and the environment. A longtime supporter of Surfrider Foundation, Vedder has most recently been vocal in banning offshore drilling along the US coast.

“Though some may think there should be a separation between art, music and politics, it should be reinforced that art can be a form of nonviolent protest,” Vedder says.

In addition to his activism, Vedder and his wife Jill McCormick Vedder co-founded the EB Research Partnership, dedicated to finding a cure for epidermolysis bullosa, a family of rare genetic disorders that affects the skin. The Vedder family is active in supporting both the work of the organization and the children who are impacted by the disorder.

Vedder and his wife reside in Seattle with their two daughters.

YLONA GARCIA RELEASES NEW TRACK

“[Ylona Garcia is] an international superstar in the making.” — Flaunt Magazine

Today, 19 year old Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Ylona Garcia has released an absolute banger of a song called “Entertain Me via PARADISE.

Much like her 2021 single “All That,” “Entertain Me” is a straight up female empowerment anthem and destined for club greatness.

Produced by DNA and co-written by DNA and Ylona herself, the song finds the Australian-born Filipino artist asserting her independence and dispelling the notion that she can be fooled and controlled by anyone.

Coinciding with the single’s release is the launch of a new playable character in Riot Games wildly-popular video game, Valorant. The new character named Neon, who has been described as hailing from Manila in teasers, speaks Tagalog language, and is described as one of the youngest agents “who can outpace the rest of the roster, shocking the competition, and sliding straight into the fight.” Indeed, the launch of the character Neon perfectly compliments the empowered persona Ylona exudes in “Entertain Me.”

At only 19 years old, Ylona Garcia has set her sights on the global landscape in the next stage of her creative journey. With multiple song releases under her belt already, in addition to appearing on two of the biggest reality/talent contests shows in the Philippines, Ylona Garcia has become one of the fastest-rising, most prominent young voices in the Filipino music community. She currently has over 4.1 million Followers on Instagram and nearly 1 million followers on TikTok in addition to over 265,000 monthly listeners on Spotify and 170,000 subscribers on her YouTube channel.

Ylona Garcia’s music is released by 88rising’s sister label PARADISE RISING, which was launched in 2020 to help bring Filipino music to the forefront of culture.

Giantz and iconic West Coast rapper Suga Free for an unapologetic Gangster Rap track “Kanye Should’ve Never Married (That B*tch)” via his own independent label Division Movie Company.

On Saturday, April 30 fans can watch Glasses Malone perform live at 93.5 KDAY Krush Groove event happening at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, CA. Tickets, available HERE.

Martin Jensen × Cheat Codes × Theresa Rex – Running

Producer/DJ Martin Jensen kicks off 2022 with new collaboration “Running” alongside Los Angeles-based electronic trio Cheat Codes and Danish singer Theresa Rex. The single is the follow-up to Martin Jensen and Theresa Rex’s hit “Solo Dance.” Listen to “Running” HERE, out now via Astralwerks

The musical synergy from the collective artists on the collaboration is palpable as “Running” ignites into a primed dancefloor player. Addictive and memorable, thanks to warm piano tones and Theresa Rex’s vocal, which is snappy and is striking from the first listen.

Cheat Codes have expertly crafted countless electronic music anthems, spanning dance, pop, hip-hop, and alternative. A formula has seen them excel in the streaming world, clocking in over 6 billion total streams, amounting to them being one of the “Top 200 Most Listened to Artists in the World”. The LA-based trio that consists of Kevin Ford, Trevor Dahl, Matthew Russell has also collaborated with a string of high-profile artists that include Afrojack, Wiz Khalifa, Travis Barker, Tove Styrke and Demi Lovato.

Cheat Codes said, “We are excited to kick off 2022 with ‘Running’ alongside our friends Martin and Theresa, we wanted to bring as much positivity and vibrance into the production and accomplish something anthemic! We hope everyone had a Happy New Year and are ready to hit the ground RUNNING in 2022.”

Danish singer Theresa Rex is the voice behind numerous hits, working with great artists like Jonas Blue, Alle Farben, and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike. However, perhaps her most significant success came in her team up with Martin Jensen on the wildly popular “Solo Dance,” Martin’s breakthrough single, which stands at over 653 million streams on Spotify alone. 

On the collaboration, Rex says, “It was so special working with Martin and the whole team again. It has been a moment since ‘Solo Dance’ came out, but I think that ‘Running’ is the perfect follow up and adding Cheat Codes to the mix has made it pure magic.”

Martin Jensen added, “The energy working with this whole team was incredible. Reuniting with Theresa meant we had to do something extraordinary, so who better to do that with than our good friends Cheat Codes.”

Arctic Lake – Breathe

English alternative pop duo Arctic Lake is back with the emotionally bare single “Breathe,” out now via Astralwerks. The slow-burning, gently driving song, produced by member Paul Holliman, comes with a fittingly evocative and intimate video. Listen to “Breathe” HERE and watch the video HERE.

“Breathe” finds vocalist Emma Foster pleading with a partner who’s closed off, she’s desperate for more connection, feeling suffocated by the relationship’s limitations. Shimmering synths slink around her voice as she asks, “Can I find what’s underneath, won’t you let me know you?” Eventually, a rush of vibrating electronics takes over, but not without her slipping in one more simple request: “I’m just wanting you to hold me.” The video for “Breathe” feels just as personal, with Foster front and center against a blood-red background, her soul-baring lyrics projected right on her face, exposing every vulnerability.

“Breathe” follows 2021’s electro-kissed single “Lonely,” Arctic Lake’s “steamiest track yet” according to House of Solo. The duo also recently built up a following with a handful of collaborations, like their ZHU team-up “Yours“, which peaked at #16 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, as well as the feel-good track, “House Music” with German DJ Boris Brejcha, and “Road” with producer Lane 8. But “Breathe” builds on Arctic Lake’s more minimalist, sultry soundscapes, which Tongue Tied Magazine describes as “breathtaking, electromagnetic anthems” that are “simply unmatched.”

Arctic Lake’s blend of emotional songwriting and inventive production has won the attention of fans and critics since they self-released their debut single, “Limits,” in 2015. Since then, their following has grown to over 1 million monthly listeners on Spotify. As they prepare more new music for 2022, Arctic Lake is ready to lure more listeners into their colorful world.
