Sasha Sloan – Lie

Critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Sasha Sloan releases her new single “Lie” today. Written by Sasha along with King Henry and Emi Dragoi and produced by King Henry, “Lie” unpacks the denial and fallout of a failed relationship. With a breathtaking visual to follow next week, “Lie” sets the stage for Sasha to unveil her debut album, Only Child coming this Fall.

On Only Child, Sasha finally steps into her own as one of music’s most gifted lyricists and a profoundly affecting artist. “This album is a very mature version of me,” Sasha says. “It’s the most honest I’ve been. And there’s even a twinge of hope in there, which is new for me!” The album, which Sasha has been working on since last year and finished in quarantine, is equal parts arresting and affecting. It’s bold, confessional, funny and real. It builds off the beautiful foundation Sasha set forth with her trio of prior EP’s.

About Sasha Sloan

After emerging in 2017 and appearing on a handful of high-profile collaborations, 25-year-old singer/songwriter Sasha Sloan released her debut single “Ready Yet.” Since then, she has established herself as a true wordsmith, an artist’s artist, who crafts potent melodies filled with poignant lyrics. As a songwriter Sasha has amassed over 3.5 billion streams by penning hits for some of today’s biggest artists. In 2018 Sasha released her first two EPs, Sad Girl and Loser. Her track “Normal” has been heralded by Billboard as a “catchy introvert anthem.” These emotionally-rich, left-of-center pop releases lead to her late night debut on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in 2019 with a performance of “Older.” That year, Sasha completed her first North American and European headline tours (sold out) and released her 3rd and final EP Self Portrait, which had her single “Dancing With Your Ghost” as Idolator’s 6th “75 Best Pop Songs Of 2019.” She also recently scored a #1 on the Dance Chart for “I’ll Wait,” her collaboration with Kygo. Remarkably before she has released a debut album, Sasha has garnered over 2 billion streams worldwide to date.

Alec Wigdahl – Summer is Over

Singer, songwriter and guitarist Alec Wigdahl releases his third single “Summer is Over,” out now via 10K Projects/ Internet Money Records. Following the release of past singles “Lipstick” and “Cologne,” “Summer is Over” is a pop-rock anthem that shows Wigdahl singing over a dance-floor ready, guitar-led beat. His recent breakout “Cologne” has gained over 2.4 million plays on Spotify and holds a coveted spot on its “Young and Free” and “Anti Pop” playlists, and his catchy July release “Lipstick” has been heralded as the song to “soundtrack your summer romance” by Earmilk. The release is also accompanied by a music video, directed by Molly Hawkins (Harry Styles, The xx, Kelsey Lu), featuring bright colors and trippy visuals.

Based in L.A. but originally from outside Minneapolis, Alec Wigdahl took up songwriting at the age of 15, initially using music as a form of therapy. After teaching himself to play guitar by watching videos of his favorite musicians, he put out a self-produced EP called On My Mind his senior year of high school. Upon graduating he headed to Boston to study at Berklee College of Music, but quickly dropped out and returned home to enroll at the University of Minnesota, compelled to continue with his D.I.Y. approach to music. Those instincts proved to be right on target when the Internet Money team reached out to Wigdahl after discovering his songs on social media. By the end of last summer, Wigdahl had signed his deal with 10K Projects, and soon set to work on Strawberry – released December 2019, the EP showcases Alec’s stripped-down sonic palette.

Alec kicked off 2020 with a brutally honest but infectious new single called “Cologne.” His most popular to date, the track was produced by Wigdahl along with Internet Money founder Taz Taylor, Nick Mira, and OkTanner and featured more elaborate pop production than his previous record, Strawberry. Despite the differences in its production, “Cologne” offers up the same raw emotion that Wigdahl has always brought to his songwriting. As Wigdahl explains, that fearless honesty ultimately serves as a vehicle for personal connection.

“I love the kind of songs that are incredibly specific to the artist’s life, but when you listen it hits you right in the chest — almost like it’s happening to you,” says Wigdahl. “In my own music I try to be as personal and vulnerable as I possibly can, so that everyone can feel like the song was made for them. I want them to feel like I’m narrating their story at the same time that I’m narrating mine.”

Fredo Bang – Monsters

“’Monsters’ is a record about people who hide their true nature and intentions. In life you come across many different monsters… from being in this business to the average person you meet. With everything happening around justice and equality, it’s my way of letting people know to be careful of who you trust.” – FREDO BANG


“Fredo delivers his nastiest effort to date. Most Hated is equal parts grimy and triumphant.”  – DJ BOOTH

“With the 2015 arrest that threatened to derail his rising career now decidedly in the rearview, Fredo is back with a newfound sense of purpose: more viral, more hardworking, and more determined to advance than ever before.” – FADER 

“New Gen Winter 2019–His city’s favored up-and-comer and its most versatile rising act. Songs like ‘No Mo’ show his penchant for soul-searching narratives and music-as-medicine melodies; the success of ‘Oouuh’ proves he has a one-of-a-kind ability to reach all sides of the hip-hop and R&B spectrum.” – HYPEBEAST

“Known for his tales of life in the streets, the rapper behind records like “Story to Tell” and “Oouuh” shows just how it goes down in his hometown.” – XXL

Fredo Bang made his mixtape debut in 2018, with 2 Face Bang (containing “Oouuh”). Fredo’s brand was established on Big Ape, his eponymous 20-song mixtape (with “Story To Tell” (Remix) and “Gangsta Talk” featuring NLE Choppa). Shortly after entering a partnership with Def Jam in the fall, Fredo issued the 16-song Pain Made Me Numb, containing the singles “Cap A Lot” and “Slidin.”

Prior to the Covid-19 hiatus, Fredo was looking forward to hitting the road as the highest-billed supporting act on Moneybagg’s 26-city cross-country “Time Served Tour,” with dates running from March through May. Details of the rescheduled tour will be announced soon.

ABOUT FREDO BANG:
With his deep, barking drawl and a natural affinity for melody, Fredo Bang (Fredrick Givens) is the next rhymer to rise out the Bayou. The highs and lows of his life encompass turning down a scholarship at Texas Southern U. in order to study closer to home, and a stiff jail sentence for aggravated battery that was commuted in 2018. At age 23, the Baton Rouge native’s rhymes have now won the South. He has collabo­ra­ted with everyone from YNW Melly to Moneybagg Yo to Kevin Gates. 2018’s 2 Face Bang mixtape put Fredo on the map with the breakout single “Oouuhh” and a streak of hits including “Shootas on the Roof” and “Father” (over 22 million YouTube views). The street took deeper notice in 2019, with the Big Ape mixtape and a non-stop string of regional single + video hits that included “Oouuh” Remix featuring Kevin Gates, “Gangsta Talk” featuring NLE Choppa, and “Story To Tell” (Remix) featur­ing Moneybagg Yo. Fredo entered into a partnership with Def Jam in the fall 2019. The hits continued unabated with “Face Down” and “Vest Up,” then “Yo Slime,” and “Waitin 4” (with a beat from Hard­body B-Eazy and DJ Chose). Fredo’s next mixtape, Pain Made Me Numb hit in November, with the single + video releases “Cap A Lot” and “Slidin.” April 2020 brought the back-to-back releases of the single + video “Trust Issues,” and Fredo’s fourth mixtape, Most Hated. Fredo’s next string of new releases, “Receipts,” “Top,” and “Monsters” point the way to his fifth mixtape, In The Name Of Gee, coming soon.

TMG Fre$h × Tee Grizzley

Recording artist TMG FRE$H releases his newest single this week titled “Champagne Cry“, featuring Detroit rapper, Tee Grizzley. FRE$H brings his synthy vocals and parabolic lyrics about seeing his kindness being taken as weakness to the Audi produced after hours track.

“Champagne Cry” stands as the first collaboration between TMG FRE$H and Tee Grizzley. The pair take to the 808 heavy beat to show out for the harsh truth of the champagne lifestyle.

“We’re both very laid back – almost reserved. I think we both sensed that integrity in each other and we’ve been good friends ever since.” says FRE$H about meeting Grizzley and recording their first single together. “This single came about while we were playing different records and when I played Champagne Cry Tee’s eyes lit up. He was like, ‘Bro, let me jump on that.’ Everything else was history.”

With FRE$H’s melodic vocals and Grizzley’s hard-hitting raps, the duo perfectly bounce their styles off each other in this single celebrating the hustle of holding true to your principles, rising to every occasion and to keep on shining!

“Champagne Cry” drops months after FRE$H debuted his single, “Anybody”, earlier this year. The accompanying music video, directed by Chancellor Warhol, racked up over one million views and became an instant digital hit. TMG FRE$H has successfully positioned himself as “one-to-watch” for the remainder of 2020 and doesn’t plan on slowing the momentum in his music career anytime soon.

Biig Piig

Biig Piig x New Track

Today, London-based artist Biig Piig has debuted her brilliant new single “Don’t Turn Around” via Annie Mac’s Hottest Record in The World. Listen HERE. Having amassed a broad global following – with fans ranging from Billie Eilish and Clairo to Virgil Abloh and Bella Hadid – Piig has also shared a stunning video for the track, which was directed by BEDROOM (The 1975, Beabadoobee). Watch HERE.

“Don’t Turn Around” perfectly captures the culture-colliding talent that is Biig Piig (born Jess Smyth). Blending the core influences across her early work (soulful hip-hop, dance music, soft-focus R&B) into effortless modern pop, it’s all held together via Jess’ instantly-identifiable, bilingual vocals and just as unique life-experiences.

In speaking about the track, Biig Piig says: “‘Don’t Turn Around’ is my post-breakup, pre glow up tune; finally getting to confidence through self-love and letting go of toxic relationships. JD Reid [slowthai, Mabel, Kojey Radical] showed me a song he had saved in his sample collection called ‘Love for the Sake of Love’ by Claudja Barry. The energy of that track instantly just made me wanna move so badly. You might have heard the sample before in Montell Jordan’s iconic tune ‘Get It On Tonite,’ but it slaps every time and the feeling Claudja Barry captures is absolutely timeless.”

At just 22 years old, Biig Piig’s quiet wisdom and winning naiveté has seen her trilogy of EPs to date develop an eclectic worldwide audience. With millions of streams and a sold-out European tour under her belt, Piig’s year may have taken an unexpected twist: it is, however, also a period in which Jess has found her voice. Under lockdown, she has developed the confidence to lead everything from Spanish tutorials and bedtime stories over Instagram to protesting in the BLM movement, selling posters in support of NHS frontline works, and organizing a pay-per-view, socially-distanced gig at Moth Club in aid of Refuge and Trans Women of Colour Survival Fund. Full details of the August 9th event are revealed today, with confirmed sets from Biig Piig, NAYANA IZ, Scutti, and Enny (tickets are available via Dice).

It has, to say the least, been an interesting journey for Biig Piig up until this point. The oldest of four, Jess was born in Ireland, but spent her formative years in Spain before moving to Shepherd’s Bush. Despite speaking English at home, Biig Piig initially only knew how to read and write in Spanish; a rocky transition through which she eventually found her people. These proved to be college-mates NiNE8 Collective, the eight-person-strong network of London-based creatives which Jess founded alongside Lava La Rue (and are now at the epicentre of London nightlife). Having gone viral with early tracks like “Vice City,” Biig Piig has emerged a vivid writer on relationship power-dynamics, identity, and how to navigate the changing world around us.

Biig Piig is currently working on her next longer-form project, due out later this year – stay tuned!
