Neneh Cherry remix of Manchild by SIA via 360 Magazine

NENEH CHERRY – MANCHILD

Neneh Cherry shares the TOKiMONSTA remix of Sia’s version of her hit “Manchild.” TOKiMONSTA has re-imagined Sia’s take of the Neneh Cherry classic into a technicolour mandala of futuristic melodies, house, and IDM (Intelligent Dance Music) that encompass the Grammy-nominated DJ and producer’s sound. The remix arrives ahead of her upcoming album The Versions, a collaboration album of covers from her expansive catalogue by an all-female lineup of some of the most exciting and revered artists of our time, drops June 10th.

Alongside Sia, other artists involved include a long-time friend, one of pop’s treasured musical geniuses, and the woman behind some of the most memorable songs of the recent decade, Robyn, who teamed up with Mapei to re-imagine the seminal track “Buffalo Stance” into a slinky, scandipop song with the help of Dev Hynes on production. Pop provocateur, ANOHNI lends her haunting vocals to “Woman”, delivering an arresting remake of the empowering track, and south London nomad Greentea Peng transforms “Buddy X” into a garage infused number. Singer-songwriter and poet Jamila Woods added her soulful touch on “Kootchi” with artist and violinist Sudan Archives completely reconstructing “Heart” into a sparse and delicate offering. Seinabo Sey adds Scandinavian soul to “Kisses On The Wind”, Kelsey Lu’s ethereal vocals on her version of “Manchild” transports the track into unworldly heights with Neneh’s daughter TYSON bringing her sensual attitude to “Sassy” before Honey Dijon wraps things up, taking things to the dancefloor with her house remix of “Buddy X”. 

Neneh Cherry has continued to define and redefine culture, style, and music, releasing five studio albums, including 2018’s Broken Politics, produced by Four Tet, which was met with critical acclaim by the likes of The Guardian, Rolling Stone, The Times, Q, and Pitchfork. 2020 saw her reissue her radically influential debut album Raw Like Sushi to celebrate its 30th anniversary and recently received the honorary Icon Award at the NME Awards 2022.

Gemaine × Charlie Heat – No Questions

Compton singer/ songwriter Germaine and distinguished producer Charlie Heat teamed up to produce their upcoming album New Jack City, with top single “No Questions” dropping January 21. The debuting single drops with a music video, in which Gemaine’s vocal capabilities are highlighted, showcasing old-fashioned R&B ballads. The arrangement showcases simplistic production from Charlie Heat, making room for Gemaine’s diving vocals, before captivating keys and percussion swoop in.

Gemaine speaks about his inspiration for the single, stating, “I was inspired to write “No Questions” by a tweet that I saw from Issa Rae. She mentioned she was listening to Mint Condition’s “Breaking My Heart” and said she wished men today would be more like the R&B singers from the past. She was bringing attention to the fact that loving a woman used to be cool. It inspired me to make a record that had a similar energy but with a modern sound. I wrote this song to remind men that there’s nothing wrong with being soft-spoken and romantic with your girl.”

The debut of “No Questions” precedes the release of Gemaine’s Lefty EP, issued in 2020. The EP received critical acclaim by HotNewHipHopHipHopDXRated R&B, and more. With the arrival of the forthcoming collaboration album New Jack City between Gemaine and producers Ymtk and DJ Charlie Heat, we can only expect out-of-this-world work. The production affiliates operate as executive producers for the album, featuring credentials with artists Madonna, Ye, Kehlani, Lil Uzi Vert and more. The producers join forces in the project to illustrate Gemain’s creative concept with impeccable execution.

Gemaine and Charlie Heat knew that they struck gold working together on early studio sessions, shortly after deciding to team up on an artistic project. The upcoming album channels reference from old-school gangster films like edgy 1991 thriller New Jack City. Gemaine and his collaborators have generated a distinguished sound and essence for the album, producing brilliant tracks that highlight creative brotherhood stemming from the teams’ cooperative work ethic.

360 had the opportunity to chat with Gemaine about his distinctive R&B spirit, what he wants for the future of his career and how he plans on accomplishing it.

What makes you stand apart from other R&B artists?

I am genuinely moving with love, and being fearless about it. I think it’s bigger than me and my selfish needs. I love the music that inspired me and want to bridge the gap of where r&b is now and where it came from. I think my approach will do that, and I am a student of the game. If my music becomes popular, people will have to understand where it came from to do it and I’m not afraid to fail while doing so. Being a trendsetter ain’t easy but that’s what I’m striving to do. [To] create a new wave and a new appreciation to a different approach.

What can we expect from your upcoming album New Jack City?

Authentic chemistry from a group of guys who really love music, and who are not afraid to be themselves. I’m the voice to the music but the attitude and tone of the album is a collective effort

What is your goal for your career in 2022?

I would just love to be in the discussion of the “up next” artist to take over the game. I think I belong, and I know [that] if I get my foot in the door I’ll really do my thing

What is the biggest goal you aim to accomplish within your career?

Longevity and impact. Money is cool and fame is nice but having a legacy that outlives me is something I would be most proud of and strive for and what motivates everything I do. I want to be remembered. I want to be great.

Yung Pooda could be Houston’s next hip-hop star

Houston Chronicle 

Yung Pooda is winning the battle between life and art…

Rolling Out

Nothing holds more weight than a promise.

In 2019, Yung Pooda found himself at a crossroads between the streets and the studio. After performing alongside legends such as Boosie Badazz, Slim Thug, and Z-Ro, recording with platinum icon Paul Wall, and igniting a buzz of his own throughout the country, the Houston rapper made an important pledge to himself. His pledge changed the course of everything to follow in its wake.

 “In the middle of recording and getting in all kinds trouble, I promised God I would get out of the streets and just do music,” he admits. “I stuck to my word.”

Long before this vow, hip-hop called to him as a kid in Orange, TX. Pooda’s mother bumped Naughty by Nature’s “Hip Hop Hooray” throughout the one-bedroom and one-bathroom house built by his grandfather that he and his mom shared with his grandma. As he puts it, “I used to go nuts to that song!” He used to listen to classics from OutKast, JAY-Z, Lil Wayne, Master P, Ludacris, DJ Screw, and more. When Pooda visited dad, pops actually built a home studio at his spot to cook up beats and DJ.  Growing up, he practiced his skills on the mic and sharpened the wordplay, developing a signature style. He sent shockwaves through the city after a successful showcase, earning endorsements from the likes of DJ Hi-Cof Houston’s 97.9 The BOX who said, “He’s always been a lyricist.” Inciting local excitement, he performed multiple tour dates with Boosie Badazz and teamed up with Paul Wall for the single “Beat Up The Block.”

Relocating to Prairie View, he moved into a two-story house with his cousin and two friends where they “were trapping and getting money, but shit got too hectic.” At this point, he reset everything. “There were fights, threats, and all types of shit,” he recalls. “I ended up saying that prayer.”

His music made its way to Jeff Aronson, CEO of It’s A 10 Records, a boutique label with a distribution deal with Empire, who immediately signed him in 2019. Now, he properly introduces his signature sound and vibes on his upcoming LP, Vivid Pictures. In 2020, Pooda made waves on Tik Tok and mix show radio with the release of his first single, “Repeat Dat” which was produced by GRAMMY® Award-winning duo Cool & Dre [JAY-Z, Beyoncé, Nas] along with a reflective song, “Lies Told”- his thoughtful response to social unrest and police brutality.  This year, his critically acclaimed newest single, “Chicken N Grits” is bringing him to the forefront. C&G has earned over 30 million Tik Tok views, was the #4 “Most Added” song at urban radio and is in rotation at BET Jams, Revolt and YO! MTV Raps. 

 The title track “Vivid Pictures” places cinematic verses in between soulful samples and is at the heart of Pooda’s approach to music and life.  “There’s a deep meaning,” he explains. “I aspire to be an artist and more than a rapper. I’m inspired by Picasso and Leonardo Da Vinci. When I listen to a beat in my head, I’m putting art together. The eyes are the windows to the soul. Everything is clear. Each song gives you a visual like a movie. That’s Vivid Pictures to me. It’s the frequency I want to be on.” 

In the end, Pooda fulfills every promise and leaves his mark on the culture in the process. “When you listen to me, I want you to feel enlightened and great,” he leaves off. “I hope you relate to the emotion and know you’re not alone. I’m young enough to make mistakes and old enough to know better. I’m telling my story. I’m human.”

YUNG POODA #1 NEW SINGLE “FOREVER TIPPIN” #1 MOST ADDED AT URBAN RADIO

Independent Label It’s A 10 Records’ Promo Efforts Put Yung Pooda At The Forefront

This week, Houston-based, emerging rapper Yung Pooda continues to make a name for himself as his new release, “Forever Tippin” beats out stiff competition from major label artists to be the #1 “Most Added” record at urban radio. Get it HERE.

Yung Pooda joined forces with fellow Texan rapper/producer DJ Chose to collaborate on “Forever Tippin” which is a reworking of the classic “Still Tippin'” by Mike Jones, Paul Wall and Slim Thug- who makes a cameo appearance in the riveting “Forever Tippin” video. Less than a month to release, the video has already garnered over one million views and counting and received widespread critical acclaim. See the video HERE.

Signed to It’s A 10 Records, an independent label distributed by United Masters, Pooda has been stealthily building a name for himself with an onslaught of buzzing releases over the past year including “Chicken N Grits” featuring Dream Doll and Trey Songz (on the remix), “Repeat Dat” and “Lies Told.”

“Pooda is the real deal,” says It’s A 10 Records Miami-based founder and C.E.O. Jeff Aronson who tapped the top-selling songwriter/production duo Cool & Dre to oversee Yung Pooda’s forthcoming album. “He is talented, versatile and has a lot to say. We are committed to putting the resources behind him and his upcoming album.

James Vincent McMorrow × Paradise

James Vincent McMorrow shares the music video for Paradise from his upcoming album, Grapefruit Season, to be released on September 17.

“McMorrow has a soul voice to cherish” – Guardian

“The ever-shifting Irish singer-songwriter…it works” – Sunday Times, Hottest Tracks

“A deft collaboration, with James pushing his music onto a different realm, whilst maintaining that recognizable emotional pull” – CLASH

“Lyrically raw and immensely quotable” – The Forty Five

James Vincent McMorrow shares the video for new single Paradise, which is available now via Sony Music UK/RCA Records. Paradise is the latest taste of James’ much-anticipated new album Grapefruit Season – which also features teaser singles Headlights, Gone, and I Should Go (with Kenny Beats) – and is now set for release on September 17.

Produced by James alongside Paul Epworth and Lil Silva, Paradise is about pretending everything is fine when, beneath the surface, it really isn’t. Initially struggling to find its visual concept, the Paradise video started as an off-hand remark (“why don’t I just dig out my rollerblades and film myself learning to skate again in the park behind my house?”) but now feels like the perfect fit to the track’s uplifting, feel-good but melancholic center.

Paradise further previews Grapefruit Season, James Vincent McMorrow’s upcoming, fifth studio album – and one in which the artist, producer, and songwriter pushes himself (and his sound) in all new ways. The record was recorded between London, Los Angeles, and Dublin, largely before the pandemic struck. It embraces the timeless yet timely fact that life is chaos; the idea of growing up, but as Paradise suggests, still feeling none the wiser. Each song is held together by McMorrow’s instantly-identifiable voice, an untethered musical imagination, and (from dancehall to soul, country to R&B) purposefully little else in its pursuit of fear-free pop music. Even the title, Grapefruit Season, seems to signpost doing simply what you want, rather than what you are supposed to do – it was inspired by James watching his mum eat grapefruit as a kid, and the idea that what’s good for you may not actually be pleasurable.

Throughout the emotional highs and lows of Grapefruit Season, you are reminded of the risks James Vincent McMorrow has taken since the singer-songwriter roots of debut album Early In The Morning (which turned ten in 2020); but also that those same instincts – to follow inspiration wherever it leads, and to be as brutally honest possible – remain a refreshing constant. Whilst there may always be trouble in Paradise, what’s emerged is James Vincent McMorrow’s most essential album to date.

James also made headlines recently playing the first concert in Ireland with a live audience since the beginning of the pandemic (tickets sold out in just 30 seconds). With festivals including Latitude and Isle of Wight confirmed to follow this summer, McMorrow’s UK and European tour for early 2022 includes a London date at Kentish Town Forum on February 21 and two homecoming shows at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre on April 19-20.
