Caleb Lee Hutchinson 'Slot Machine Syndrome' from Emily Ginsberg, Big Hassle Media for use by 360 Magazine

Caleb Lee Hutchinson new song – Slot Machine Syndrome

“The Brent Cobb-produced project sees Hutchinson breaking down barriers”

“if there is anyone who has been authentic from the get-go, it’s Hutchinson”

“The project’s title track shows a more grown-up, more defined talent, blessed with a gritty baritone that has some shades of Sturgill Simpson. The title tune is a three-quarter time ballad with lots of walking bass and guitar lines, about a guy who ‘feels just fine, puttin’ it on the line’ when it comes to gambling with his heart”

“Caleb Lee Hutchinson flaunts some major songwriting maturity”

“Twangy and swampy – and undeniably country”

Nashville-based, Americana-tinged Country artist Caleb Lee Hutchinson has released “Slot Machine Syndrome,” the title track from the forthcoming Brent Cobb-produced EP. Hutchinson and Cobb teamed up to co-write the new song which premiered exclusively via Taste of Country last week who says Hutchinson “flaunts some major songwriting maturity” on the new track and Rolling Stone Country adds that the new release showcases a “more grown-up, more defined” Hutchinson.

“Slot Machine Syndrome” follows the release of “Who I Am,” a song that addresses Hutchinson’s past, and what people think they know about the singer/songwriter. “A lot of people see me as this 18-year-old kid that has no clue what to do with his life,” Hutchinson told American Songwriter, “this song is a perfect way of saying, ‘here’s what I am; here’s what I do. You can love it; you can hate it, but here’s what it is.’”

The new collection of music will release wide on September 17. Ahead of the release, Hutchinson will be playing a handful of dates including his first headlining performance in Nashville at Brooklyn Bowl on August 29.

Slot Machine Syndrome marks the beginning of a bold new chapter for the singer-songwriter, full of outsider’s pride and the sense of bold conviction shared by his heroes. It’s a chapter where he is finally the author of his own story.

Produced by Grammy-nominated Americana talent Brent Cobb, the set moves hard country’s bleeding edge into a new, modern era, with one of Nashville’s most dynamic vocalists embracing a grittier version of himself.

With his second EP, Slot Machine Syndrome, the rising star plants a flag deep into his Southern roots – standing proudly apart from the country mainstream proving his talent goes beyond what fans thought they knew.

Culture Wars – teche

Austin, TX trio Culture Wars share the release of their debut EP, teche, along with their latest single “Lose Money” from the EP.  The band, Alex Dugan, David Grayson, and Dillion Randolph have amassed over 7 million streams independently, inciting a flurry of activity on TikTok charting a top 30 on Alternative radio.

The band shares about the track, “’Lose Money’ is one of those songs that could have easily not have happened. After I tracked a handful of vocal ideas at Sonic Ranch in El Paso, it took our producer Caleb and bandmate David to point out the chorus section, otherwise, I would have completely missed it. Thanks to them, and some insane prophet sounds from Dillon afterwards, Lose Money came to life. A testament to the strength of working as a team, this song stands out as one of my all time favorites.”

Earlier this year, Culture Wars released the single “Hunger,” a twist and turn of warbling bass, shimmering synths, and a hypnotic high register hook before dissolving into a cathartic drum and key freak-out punctuated by otherworldly guitar. “I was at a weird place in my life,” Alex Dugan admits. “For me, it was a release of energy. Retrospectively ‘Hunger’ could be about distancing yourself from emotion in a relationship where you’ve had to disassociate due to dysfunction.”

Inspired by seeing New Order live in Houston, the band recorded a series of demos in 2016. Those demos eventually morphed into Culture Wars‘ self-titled 2017 debut EP. The lead single “Lies” eclipsed 2.2 million Spotify streams followed by “Bones” peaking at #43 on Alternative radio. In 2019, they retreated to the famed Sonic Ranch Recording Studio in Tornillo, TX, which sits on a massive pecan farm thirty minutes outside of El Paso directly on the Mexican border. Over the course of “drunk summer camp, as Alex describes it, they brought teche to life with producer Caleb Contreras. The isolation, yet intimacy of the locale seeped into the push-and-pull of the music. They recruited ten-time GRAMMY Award winner Manny Marroquin [Kanye West, Imagine Dragons] for mixing and put the finishing touches on the EP just as the Global Pandemic set in. Throughout the next year, they teased out teche.  “Faith,” which Alex describes as “a rock song, an electronic song, and country song,hinted at the scope of the project. Meanwhile, “Leave Me Alone” quickly approached 1 million Spotify streams as it generated a flurry of activity on TikTok fueled by videos from mega-influencers such as Bella Poarch, Nessa Barrett, and Sienna Mae. Not to mention, it landed on the GRAMMY Award-nominated Bill & Ted Face The Music Original Motion Picture Soundtrack and ascended into the Top 30 at Alternative Radio.

BIG BRATT – FIRST CLASS

Today, rising Chattanooga-bred rapper Big Bratt releases “First Class,” an energetic new single powered by crushing bass, rapid-fire flexes, and irrepressible attitude. The track arrives with accompanying video, watch above or listen at all digital retailers here.

Over a minimal, speaker-rattling instrumental, Bratt serves up confident bars about her approach to romance. “Told him he can be my trick, but he can’t be my man,” she raps in her deep Southern drawl, “Every time I leave a nigga, make him go insane.” Elsewhere, she dives into some casual flexing, flaunting her knack for stacking money and detailing the life of luxury that’s resulted from her success. “I’m in first class with my feet up,” she raps on the infectious chorus.

 

With hard-hitting bars and a memorable hook, “First Class” is further proof that Big Bratt is well on her way to big things. This new song arrives just over a month after the Cinematic Music Group rapper’s “Paid in Full,” a song and video made in the spirit of the 2002 film of the same name. In the video, she plays her own version of the movie’s kingpin protagonist while still making time to hit up the basketball court and kick it with her crew. It’s a visual that is rooted deeply in hip-hop culture and it demands you pay attention, something plenty of new listeners are starting to do with every Big Bratt release. 

 

This recent run of singles, which started with the reflective 2020 track “Rich Rollxn,” shows off why she’s caught the attention of critics and tastemakers — DJ BOOTH has already identified her as one of “10 rappers you should know right now.” With the fierce charisma and natural dexterity on display on songs like “First Class,” Bratt seems poised to continue making noise throughout the rest of 2021 and beyond. 

 

About Big Bratt: 

Raised on Southern hip-hop legends like Boosie and 8Ball & MJG, Bratt stepped into the studio for the first time as a little girl. During her high school years, she learned how to make beats and started sharing her remixes on social media, and soon began putting her fierce work ethic to the test. “Before I got my vehicle I was always catching the bus or getting an Uber to Nashville from three hours away,” says Bratt. “It was hard but I didn’t care what it took; I just knew I needed to get to the studio.”

 

Now at work on her debut project, Bratt has teamed up with producers like Bankroll Got It (Stunna 4 Vegas, Smokepurpp, Lil Pump) to further develop her sound. “The whole goal of this project is to be motivational,” she says. “I want all the females my age to know they deserve more, but they can’t be lazy or depend on anybody else to make it happen. It’s time to go get it on their own.”

“Hunger” twists and turns through warbling bass, shimmering synths, and a hypnotic high register hook before dissolving into a cathartic drum and key freak-out punctuated by otherworldly guitar.

Birdman & Juvenile “Just Another Gangsta”

BIRDMAN & JUVENILE RELEASE NEW ALBUM Just Another Gangsta AVAILABLE TODAY

Available at All Digital Retailers Now

Nodding to the golden age of Cash Money Records, Birdman & Juvenile team up to release their collaborative album J.A.G. at all digital retailers today.

Short for “Just Another Gangster,” both the album title and lead single “J.A.G.” take you back to the bouncy bling era of the label by reuniting legendary Co-Founder and multi-platinum rapper Birdman with Southern luminary and fellow icon Juvenile. The larger-than-life music video already surpassed 4.3 million YouTube/VEVO views, and the song impacted radio in February where it continues rising.

On the track, these two New Orleans titans lock into a lyrical back-and-forth before delivering a chanting refrain over a slick bass line and steady beat. With a whole lot of swag and style. It’s as infectious and icy as anything they’ve ever done together, and it evokes the timeless nature of their chemistry initially honed by way of collaborations from dozens of classic releases.

“J.A.G.” is stacked with bold and big bangers. “Dreams” featuring Choppa showcases more slick Southern flows over acoustic guitar and piano. Choppa brings his own fire to the track as Juvenile turns up with another hummable hook. “Broke” unfolds with street wit and charm, while a bluesy guitar lead gives way to rhyme fireworks on the nostalgic “Back Then.” “From The Bottom” could serve as a mission statement for either Juvenile or Birdman as it documents the come-up to triumph in vivid detail. The album concludes on the hard-hitting and bounce-driven “One Two.”

The entire project sees Birdman and Juvenile rapping with focus and fire that’s always fresh. Additionally, it features production courtesy of Rich Gang in-house team.

Birdman and Juvenile recently engaged a full court press blitz that saw them appearing on multiple television and radio shows. They notably guested on The Wendy Williams Show to perform the title track and speak on the project. Additionally, Juvenile guested on The Breakfast Club, and his appearance racked up a staggering 100K views in under six hours as it approached the 400k mark now.

Be on the lookout for more big news and moves from Birdman, Juvenile, and Cash Money Records in 2019.
