Ski Mask Cover Art via WMA Agency

12AM × Jutes – Ski Mask

Prolific storyteller 12AM has enlisted Canadian R&B artist Jutes for his latest single “Ski Mask” out now via Sony Music Canada.

The hard-hitting track encompasses infectiously melodic vocals escorted by 12AM’s ability to captivate audiences with his storytelling prowess. With lyrics outlining love and what can be put on the line to keep it, “Ski Mask” is one of many chapters to come.

“Me and Jutes have been wanting to put out a song for so long together but we had to have the right one.. we made a couple records here and there but once I freestyled the hook for ‘Ski Mask’ we both knew this was the one. He laid his verse down and bodied it and it made me step my game up on my verse,” explains 12AM.

“Ski Mask” arrives as a follow up to “come over” and “Voices” whose success resulted in early rotation on Apple Radio 1, premieres with Travis Mills and media coverage from cultural tastemaker Lyrical Lemonade, among others. Adding to mainstream radio and media coverage, praise for upcoming releases can be seen on social media from artists such as Travis Barker, Tyla Yaweh, and Elijah Woods.

Los Angeles-based, Ottawa native Matthew Dubois, better known as 12AM, is an emerging alternative R&B singer stemming from the ever-expanding Canadian music scene. Earning love from streaming platforms and radio alike, 12AM’s releases have landed consistent debuts on new music playlists in the US and Canada, garnering early support in rotation on Apple Music 1 Radio which led to premieres with Travis Mills for “love dies” and “come over.” Notably 12AM boasts over 15 million streams with 6 million of those branching from viral tracks: “Voices” and “come over.”

No stranger to media coverage and acclaim from tastemakers, praise can be seen coming from industry key players such as Lyrical Lemonade who said “12AM has been having a massive year without being able to tour, the Canadian [and LA-based] artist has an innate ability to craft big choruses which is why more and more artists are tapping in to use his melodic talents.”

A prolific storyteller, 12AM consistently writes for other artists as well as himself. 12AM can be seen frequently working with Elijah Woods and Omer Fedi (Kid Laroi “Without You”), (24kGoldn & Iann Dior “Mood”) and (Lil Nas X “Montero”) also regularly working with producers Midi Jones, Bizness Boi, and NGHT NGHT. Apart from writing and making music, 12AM has an extensive touring background, in his most recent run touring North America with Souly Had, 12AM completed over 30 show dates on a single tour amassing sold out venues in Salt Lake City and Toronto. Touring accolades include dates with Internet Money, Iann Dior, Jez Dior, 24kGoldn, Jutes, and Trevor Daniel. A one-of-a-kind artist, 12AM’s passion and pain shine through his music-making and unique narrative ability.

With highly anticipated upcoming releases with Travis Barker, Jutes, and Pyrex, paired with the heavy hitting management team of Tes Siyoum (Tyla Yaweh) and Alec Strasmore (ex-Post Malone), 12AM is creating the pathway for a summer 2021 takeover. 12AM’s repertoire is only at its inception, the future looks incredibly bright for the multifaceted and highly talented singer.

3Breezy – Message to Her Music Video

3BREEZY RELEASES THE VIDEO FOR MESSAGE TO HER TODAY, WATCH HERE

Today newly-signed Capitol Records hip hop/RnB artist 3Breezy releases the video for Message To Her. The record, self-released by 3Breezy last November, already has 2,817,445 views, and overall in his short career 3Breezy has amassed nearly 25 million streams in the U.S. alone.

WATCH HERE

On Message to Her, Breezy tells the story of a woman who’s been neglected by her lover. Alternating between the woman’s perspective and his own, Breezy offers words of encouragement that are as tender as his vocals: Pick your head up, baby, know you got a purpose. Inspired by a direct message he received from a fan who wanted him to sing a story she couldn’t tell on her own, the song is both a literal embodiment of his mission to provide musical therapy for fans across the globe. The comments most shared from listeners are how the felt every word and that the song hits hard, As Breezy prepares his new project, Catch a Breeze, he’s just at the beginning of exploring this sensitive side of himself more fully.

3Breezy has only been making music for around a year, but already has a growing legion of fans ensnared by his crooning, hazy confessionals, and uplifting aphorisms. Raised in Pennsauken Township, New Jersey, he grew up surrounded by sisters and aunts and did a lot of listening, the background soundtrack for Message to Her and his understanding of both a man and a woman’s perspective — a born shoulder to lean on.

Gifted with a reassuring baritone and the empathy of someone who listens more than he speaks, 3Breezy colors in tales of heartbreak and healing with smoky melodies and wide-eyed sincerity, creating optimistic anthems for lost souls in search of happy endings. After debuting his first song in October of 2020 he began a consistent pattern of releasing singles & his debut mixtape Murda She Wrote. His sincere lyrics and detailed story-telling quickly captivated audiences across Tik Tok, YouTube, & locally. Through his music 3Breezy hopes to uplift, empower, and spread positivity through crooning his hazy confessionals, and uplifting aphorisms.

Breezy’s burgeoning rap career was born from a global catastrophe, a dream deferred, and bad weather. Raised in Pennsauken Township, New Jersey, the man born Nihee Wesley could see peers embracing the negative influences in the neighborhood, but he mostly kept to himself and steered clear of trouble in the process. By the time Breezy graduated, he planned on becoming a veterinarian technician, he realized he liked working with animals. Another reason was because I didn’t like working with people, he recalls with a laugh. After going to college for two years to get his vet assistant certification, Breezy was set to take on a job in his field. Then, the COVID-19 pandemic began and he was unable to do so.

One rainy day, after playing video games got old, Breezy noticed a TikTok user who said he’d recorded a song through his phone. After checking out the song and deciding it sounded pretty good, he downloaded GarageBand to his phone and got to work himself. Spitting over a dreamy guitar line, Breezy recorded his first song, the free-associative and casually braggadocious Kiss My Automatic. After creating the tune, he called his friend over to his house to see if he was hearing it right. After getting the cosign, he posted it to his TikTok account, which already had a sizable following, and proceeded to rack up likes and comments. Seeing the response to the song, Breezy began to consider new career possibilities. That was like one of my biggest videos I posted on TikTok,; he recalls. I’m like, What if I took this seriously?

By 2021, Breezy got his answer when he signed to Capitol Records and released Murda She Wrote, which, it should be said, he recorded entirely through his iPhone. While the first song he ever made was smooth for a debut, Murda She Wrote showcase a crystallized version of 3Breezy, one who’s not afraid to veer from the boasting to instead embrace his sensitivity. Growing up in a house with his aunts, he’d hear stories of their trials and tribulations in romance, and he’d get advice from his great-grandmother on how to speak to women. Songs like Message to Her and Mental Love reflect that upbringing. On newer releases like Move On and Message from Breezy (a spiritual sequel to Message to Her), he’s only doubled down on his emotional explorations, which heߣll surely continue to do on Catch a Breeze.

While he refers to himself as the voice of the heartbroken now, there was a time when he was afraid to embrace his emotions in song. I always had a thing for making this type of music, but I never really posted it because I didn’t want my homies to be like, Bro, why are you making this soft music? Nobody wants to hear you in your feelings, Breezy says. The second I stopped giving a fuck what anybody else thought and did what I liked is when I started seeing progress.

Valley Release New Song SOCIETY

On the heels of their explosive track, “Like 1999”, today JUNO nominated, alternative-pop band, Valley shares their new song “SOCIETY” via Capitol Records. Valley – comprised of Rob Laska, Karah James, Mickey Brandolino and Alex DiMauro – have spent the past two years developing organic buzz through a personal and intimate connection with their fans.

“SOCIETY” hinges on a hummable, clean guitar riff. Its head-bopping beat thumps in the background as Valley gleefully nods to “You Get What You Give” by The New Radicals and “Teenage Dirtbag” by Wheatus. Laska comments, “To us, both those songs have such an uplifting chorus but lyrically deal with some frustration with the world / pop culture and just not letting it get you down. They both lyrically touch on not following the rules just because you’re told to; trusting your own beliefs and making your own decisions.”

If TikTok happened in 1998, it might sound like this song. Underpinned by dancefloor-ready piano, the track rides this momentum towards the sweeping and shimmering hook. On the song’s meaning, Laska explains, “’SOCIETY’ tells a story of how our career can sometimes feel. We exist within an ever-changing creative industry full of opinions and music machines making everything go round. At times, what you truly have to say as an artist can feel diminished or not as important when it comes to the context of making a product or something that people will label as sellable and listenable. At the end of the day, ‘SOCIETY’ is Valley accepting the terms and conditions of our identity, songs and career, the fact that we’ll never be able to please everyone but also coming to terms that no matter what the public considers to be a ‘hit,’ we tell ourselves we’re always going to follow our own artistic arrow.”

“SOCIETY” follows Valley’s unanticipated release earlier this year, “Like 1999.” Its genesis traces back to a TikTok post that featured the chorus of an unreleased song. In only a few short days, the TikTok had over 700,000 views and over 100,000 likes with Johnny Orlando and JESSIA posting duets of the song on their own accounts. Valley rushed to finish “Like 1999” in under 48 hours for fans and the song went on to inspire thousands of creators and amass 2.5M+ views on the original TikTok post. Now their fastest growing song to date, “Like 1999” has helped push their catalog to eclipse over 100 million streams while breaking borders, appearing on viral charts in the U.S., Philippines, Korea, Japan and more.

After an unprecedented year for live music, Valley is excited to reconnect with their fans to perform across North America. The band is gearing up to play Wunderbus Festival in Columbus, OH and Bottlerock Festival in Napa Valley, CA at the end of the summer and then joining COIN on a 17-date North American tour this fall. See full list of tour dates below.

Surf Mesa and Madison Beer celebrate the euphoria of young love in the new single, “Carried Away,” released today by Astralwerks—just in time for Valentine’s Day. Coming of age and falling in love maylook different in quarantine, yet the duo evokesthe timeless essence of romance that remains unchanged. After opening simply with Madison’sexquisite, emotive vocals and acoustic guitar, the tender ballad swells as Surf imbues it with rich, ethereal layers. Download / stream “Carried Away” HERE. View the lyric video, created by Katia Temkin (Ariana Grande, Drake) as well.

“‘Carried Away’ is about the butterflies in your stomach feeling you get when you meet someone new and fall in love for the very first time,” explains Surf Mesa. “Working with Madison was a dream. I hope this song spreads love during this time when we need it more than ever.”

“When writing songs about love,” says Madison,“I’m often drawn to the ups and downs and heartache that can result from a relationship gone bad. It was refreshing to explore the other side of love for ‘Carried Away,’ the excited nerves you get from meeting someone and falling in love for the first time. I’m so grateful to Surf who made the whole process so fun.”

“Carried Away” follows Surf Mesa’s breakthrough hits “ily (i love you baby)” ft. Emilee and“Somewhere” ft. Gus Dapperton. Recently certified Platinum by the RIAA, “ily (i love you baby)”has amassed nearly two billioncombined global streams. Hailed by Rolling Stone as an ”earworm of a song,” it hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales chart and reached No. 2 on the U.S. Top 40 radio tally.Surf performed both songs in an exclusive live performance for Vevo DSCVR ARTISTS TO WATCH 2021.

ABOUT SURF MESA

No matter how dark things get, Surf Mesa remains a dreamer. The 20-year-old songwriter and producer spent much of 2020 honing the escapist energy of the nostalgic electronic ballads he’s been working toward since he got a copy of FL Studio in third grade. The Seattle artist makes “music for good feels,” which made his music a breath of fresh airin a tough year. Both of his beloved 2020 singles—“ily (i love you baby)” featuring Emilee and “Somewhere” featuring Gus Dapperton—offer romance and refuge for tired minds, drenched in gossamer synth and fueled by insistent drums. The delicate “Carried Away” with Madison Beer, continues in this windswept tradition.

This placid mindset has clearly connected. “ily” was recently RIAA certified Platinum after almost 2billion global streams and nearly 4 billion TikTok videos. The song hit #1 on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic chart and #2 on Top 40 radio.“Somewhere” is right behind it, landing on Spotify’s hallowed New Music Friday out of the gate and garnering placements on dozens of playlists across platforms since. His whirlwind rise also earned him remixing duty on Marshmello and Halsey’s “Be Kind,” and Shawn Mendes’ “Wonder”—both fitting titles for Surf’s heartwarming music to enter mainstream EDM and pop.

By year’s end, “ily” placed on Spotify and Amazon’s top songs lists, setting him up for even bigger successes this year—VEVO has already named him a DSCVR Artist To Watch for 2021. And yet, after all this, he continues to make music at home alone, the same way he’s worked since he was a kid,holed up in his room making beats between Counter-Strikematches. He has humble aims: to make catchy, chill pop music and give others a way to “feel better about their day.” Listening to Surf, it’s hard not to.

ABOUT MADISON BEER

Prior to signing withEpic Recordsin 2019, Madison Beer achieved unprecedented success as an independent artist with her partnerFirst Access Entertainment.

Her latest single “Baby” was included on PAPER’S “10 New Songs You Need to Hear Now” and MTV’s “SONGS WE LOVE” list, with the video amassing over 4 million views on YouTube within its first week of release. Last year, feverish fans mobilized and left thousands of comments on Epic’s Instagram page to demand the release of “Stained Glass,” Madison’s most personal song to date, after she teased it during an Instagram Live session. Continuing on her hot streak, Madison has consistently beaten her daily best streaming numbers with “Selfish” after the single was added to Spotify’s coveted Today’s Top Hits playlist and is now certified Gold. Madison’s debut album, a strong personal and artistic statement, is slated for release in February 2021viaSing It Loud/First Access Entertainmenton exclusive license toEpic Records.

Alan Walker – The Aviation Movie

Billboard Music Awards nominee and diamond selling DJ/producer Alan Walker announces the release of his in-concert film The Aviation Movie on YouTube.

The film also features appearances by Walker’s collaborators Steve Aoki, Au/Ra, Isak, Iselin Solheim, Juliander, Julie Bergan, Omar Noir, Sophia Somajo, Tomine Harket, and Torine.

Walker also released The Aviation Game, an arcade-style iOS & Android mobile game developed by award winning indie studio Hello There Games. The game’s action, steering a drone through a challenging obstacle course, is directly derived from the plot of The Aviation Movie

Alan Walker explains: “Live music has obviously been on hold throughout the pandemic, and I know that I’m not the only one who misses the magic of concerts. My hope for fans who watch The Aviation Movie is for them to experience that special feeling once again and to look forward to the day when we can connect in person.”

Grace Aimi – Rainbow

Japan-born songstress Grace Aimi (eye-me) released her new video for “Rainbow” off her debut EP PICNIC. Watch HERE. “Rainbow” is a haunting and hypnotic love song. The video is directed by Takuto Shimpo is eerie and spellbinding as Grace’s vocals charm a hotel’s naive bellhop. The song is complemented by trap-pop beats. “Rainbow” is a darker take on PICNIC which showcases Grace’s knack for creating airy pop-fused R&B music. The song is at the same time catchy and beautifully strange.

Merging the intimacy and imagination of bedroom-pop with the lush and languid grooves of R&B, PICNIC includes previously released singles like “True Feelings” (a sweetly melancholy piece laced with bluesy acoustic guitar work), and “My Eyes” (a piano-driven song that landed on Apple Music’s New in Pop playlist). In addition, PICNIC opens with Grace‘s debut single “Eternal Sunshine,” a gorgeously quirky meditation on the meaning of happiness. All throughout the EP, Grace shows her gift for crafting unforgettable melodies, as well as her soft and subtle but endlessly commanding vocal presence.

About Grace Aimi:

Twenty-year-old biracial songstress Grace Aimi began her career with her brother posting covers in both Japanese and English on their YouTube channel, “Gracie and Gabe.” Grace’s radiant but raspy voice complemented her brother playing his ukulele as they performed covers of artists like Ed Sheeran, Anne-Marie, and Post Malone, among others. Their videos quickly garnered buzz, earning over 10M views in total before Grace made her debut as a solo artist. In August 2020, Grace released her summer-y debut single, “Eternal Sunshine” (a track produced by Chaki Zulu, who’s known for his work with Japan’s hottest hip-hop artists). With her debut EP due out soon, Grace’s global upbringing and angelic yet husky vocals make her a force to be reckoned with.
