Rarin Q×A – Toxic Ends

By: Ally Brewster

Fast-rising artist Rarin has released his liberating, pop-rap debut mixtape Toxic Ends. An aspirational, ambition-fueled introduction which champions human connection and self-growth, inspiring listeners to be themselves free of insecurity, Toxic Ends unites Rarin’s recent string of hard-hitting singles and adds six new tracks to his prolific catalogue.

Originally recording music for fun and continuing to create in his bedroom despite his success, Rarin has racked up over 75 million global streams with his string of viral singles including “GTA” and “YESSIR!” which topped Spotify’s viral charts and trended on YouTube. Adding to his hot streak, and distilling rap, pop, and relatable storytelling into his own unique sound, Toxic Ends will follow his recently released singles: deceptive flex anthems that speak to what is achievable in life if you free yourself from insecurity. “Toxics Ends” imagines what life would be like if we let go of the negative thoughts that hold us back, while Rarin “levels up” to become the most polished version of himself on “Big Spendin’,” a version without heartbreak or self-consciousness, that is excited for the future. “SO WHAT! ft. Brxkenbxy” speaks to brushing off minor issues to find value in mistakes without letting them derail you from seizing big opportunities.

“I think we’re all destined for something greater than our expectations. We just have to let go of what’s holding us back,” says Rarin on the inspiration for the mixtape. “This project is mainly about letting go of our ‘toxic ends.’ People are tempted to commit themselves to things they cannot obtain, especially in relationships, leading their emotions to consume them. Just because you want something, doesn’t mean you need it.”

We had the opportunity to ask Rarin about his career, Toxic Ends, and what’s next for the artist:

How did you get your start into music? When did you know if it was something you wanted to pursue?

I originally got into music because of my parents. They had me learn to play the piano because they wanted me to try out new things when I was younger. I think that really gave me an ear for making music and it helped a lot. Singing and rapping came many years later and that really started out of boredom. Later, with time, I found myself enjoying recording music more and more and eventually I recognized music as something I wanted to pursue professionally.

Who were your biggest inspirations for going into the music industry? How has their careers inspired/impacted your own decisions and direction for your music?

My biggest inspirations are Lil Peep, Travis Scott, and Billie Eilish. The career of Lil Peep has made me see how important fan interaction is, and how being close with your fans can bring a really special connection. I also love Travis Scott’s live performances and seeing him perform made me realize that your fans and listeners will reflect your energy, so you need to show your enthusiasm in everything you do. Billie Eilish inspires me to go out of my comfort zone and to be more confident. In one interview she had said that you should embrace your mistakes in your music and keep them because that’s what makes it unique. That saying has stuck with me for the entirety of my career and has really given me motivation.

How does your new work compare to your other works you’ve done in the past in terms of process, production and message? Do you notice differences in creating singles versus mixtapes?

Overall, the production has gotten much better, but I also have more purpose when I record and write music. Currently, I tend to make faster and happier songs compared to my past music.

What was it like when you realized that your work was connecting with people? Was there a specific moment you remember realizing how your music impacted others?

It was honestly very motivating. I’ve had fans tell me that my music has helped them stay mentally strong in their hardest times, and that really means the world to me. I use music to help myself feel better so being able to provide that for others makes me really happy.

Were you surprised that your work became popular in gaming communities? What has that experience been like as you watched you work be appreciated by many different communities?

I never really expected my songs to blow up through video games. I used to edit gaming montages so it’s crazy to me that my music is being used in videos similar to what I used to edit.

Toxic Ends is a mixtape with “deceptive flex anthems that speak to what is achievable in life if you free yourself from insecurity.” What inspired you to make a mixtape that is vulnerable and honest about overcoming insecurity? Is there anything you hope fans take away from the mixtape?

My life inspires my music and, in my life, I’ve found myself unable to rid myself of toxic relationships and situations because I thought those situations were normal and that I didn’t deserve better. After listening, I hope my fans recognize the importance of loving yourself and what you do. I think it is the key to being successful and happy in life and I wish that upon everyone.

What are you most excited for next once your new mixtape is out?

I’m most excited to start doing live shows and possibly touring.

Combined global streams of Bissett’s first three tracks and his Capitol debut single, Communication, are nearing 11 million.

Born in Florida, Bissett was raised on classic rock bands like Led Zeppelin and AC/DC. He moved to Oregon with his family when he was five and started playing electric guitar in second grade. By the time his family moved back to Florida, he was a teen. Enamored with indie rock, he began teaching himself to produce his own music. Channeling the pressures, anxieties and wildly heightened emotions of adolescence into songs, Bissett has forged a high-energy breed of indie-pop built on his shimmering guitar work, heart-on-sleeve sincerity and self-effacing humor.

Delilah Montagu – Baby EP

DELILAH MONTAGU RELEASES BABY EP

WATCH THE VIDEO FOR COMING FOR YA HERE

COLLABORATES WITH FRED AGAIN.. BENJY GIBSON AND TOWA BIRD

Woozy and glowing, but the London pop star packs seemingly endless, subtly insistent hooks into this surrender from a relationship’s dying days – The Guardian

The hotly tipped singer combines vocal nuance and restraint, nagging hooks, languorous slow-disco grooves and candid lyrics, with beautiful results – The Sunday Times Culture

Keep your eye on this one – L’Officiel

London based singer/songwriter Delilah Montagu today releases the 9-track ‘Baby’ EP. ‘Baby’ marks the 23 year-old’s third EP and signals a sonic departure from last summer’s brooding and melancholic This Is Not A Love Song EP.

LISTEN TO THE BABY EP HERE

Produced by Benjy Gibson, who co-wrote every song with Delilah, the EP steers away from the autobiographical nature of her previous releases, instead creating characters in a hedonistic, passion-fuelled fantasy world that the pair lived vicariously through as the world was at a standstill. The EP features additional production work by Benjy Gibson’s brother, BRIT Award winning producer Fred again.. on opening track BABY, as well as guitar lines from Billie-Eilish approved TikTok sensation Towa Bird on Coming For Ya

Current single Coming For Ya sees Delilah embrace a new sense of self and freedom as she becomes the narrator on this project born out of lockdown isolation. Delilah discovers a new acceptance in her own sexuality, whilst in the official video she explores real life couples of all sexualities and backgrounds; I’ve had girlfriends and boyfriends, but I don’t identify strongly with being gay, straight or bisexual, says Delilah. I now know that this fluidity can be freeing. It doesn’t mean I’m confused and I don’t need a label.

Above all, Delilah’s new EP Baby is about freedom, feeling and taking back control of your happiness. There’s been a huge shift for me in my ability to express myself, says Delilah. I used to be so afraid of being a woman, ashamed of feeling sexual, scared of falling in love, but I’m embracing it all with this EP.

Baby EP Tracklisting

  1. BABY
  2.  I’m All Yours
  3. Runaway Car
  4. Lost Keys
  5. Coming For Ya
  6. die 4 u
  7. I wanna FEEL

About Delilah Montagu

Debut EP In Gold introduced Delilah in 2019 with its pensive soulful rumination on coming-of-age. This energy soon flourished further with the release of this year’s This Is Not A Love Song EP and it’s streaming hit Loud, produced with Robin Hannibal (Drake, Rhye, Anderson. Paak). Reeling from her performance of Drive (a collaboration with Black Coffee and the #1 most streamed domestic single on Spotify ever in South Africa) at the online Global Citizen concert, curated by Lady Gaga – Delilah then released singles Version Of Me, Loud and Us, all garnering critical acclaim from the likes of The Sunday Times Culture, i-D, The Independent, Wonderland, Numero, The Guardian and L’Officiel to name a few.

Influenced by the likes of Leonard Cohen, Phoebe Bridgers, Carole King, Arlo Parks, Lizzo, Bon Iver and St. Vincent, Delilah is taking a total departure from the melancholy, to “just fucking express yourself” on her latest project. Written and produced with Benjy Gibson, and featuring collaborations with Fred again… and guitarist Towa Bird, the ‘Baby’ EP will be the soundtrack to your post-lockdown freedom, as Delilah matures dramatically both as a songwriter and as a person.

About Tesher

Tesher, a multilingual rapper, singer-songwriter, producer and mixing engineer is bringing South Asian influences to the global soundscape in ways never heard before. His Canadian upbringing and Indian heritage have led him to create genre-defying and energetic music that resonates with audiences beyond his dual identity. Following in the footsteps of K-Pop and Latin acts before him, Tesher authentically bridges the gap between the cultures – owning the narrative and his South Asian identity through his innovative music. After years of independently uploading his music to YouTube and Soundcloud, Tesher earned widespread recognition for his remix of Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” ft. Billy Ray Cyrus. The remix, which sampled music and lyrics from AR Rahman’s Bollywood hit “Ramta Jogi,” became a hit on social media and grew Tesher’s online profile. Tesher’s “Young Shahrukh,” an original hip-hop song inspired by Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan, continued Tesher’s string of viral hits and was his first to reach #1 on the BBC Asian Music Chart following its release in 2020. Standing at the forefront of the globalization of music, Tesher equally belongs to both the East and the West. His career skyrocketed in 2020 when he added his own vocals to his remix of Justin Bieber’s “Yummy.” After his vocals blew up on TikTok and Instagram, Tesher found fans begging him to create an independent solo record. With that vote of confidence, he was inspired to create the viral hit “Jalebi Baby,” which he later reimagined with Jason Derulo.

About Jason Derulo

Forward-thinking, genre-defying, and massively creative, Jason Derulo has staked his claim as one of the most dynamic forces on the global pop landscape. Since breaking through with his five-times-platinum single “Whatcha Say,” the award-winning singer/songwriter has sold more than 200 million records worldwide. His latest triumphs include emerging as one of TikTok’s most influential users, boasting the 11th overall biggest account on the video-sharing platform, prevailing as the fourth-most-followed male, and regularly amassing over five million views per TikTok post. Now at work on his highly anticipated fifth album and full-length debut for Atlantic Records, Derulo recently delivered a series of smash singles while operating as an independent artist. Those tracks include the wildly catchy “Lifestyle” feat. Adam Levine, “Take You Dancing” (a pandemic-era love song that’s inspired over a half-million videos on TikTok), and the double-platinum “Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat),” a collaboration with New Zealand-based producer Jawsh 685 that hit No. 1 on Top 40 radio, with its official BTS remix reaching the top slot on Billboard’s Hot 100. A truly multidimensional creator, Derulo has also established himself as an actor and businessman, investing in enterprises like Catch L.A. and Rumble Boxing and becoming part-owner of Bedlam Vodka. With his most recent ventures including launching an innovation-minded podcast and developing a line of supplements and fitness products with the Najafi Group and BodyBuilding.com, he’s also partnered with Z2 Comics to create a graphic novel, a project based on a superhero called Uzo, the crime-fighting character he first introduced on TikTok.

ABOUT KIDD G

Growing up in the small Georgia town of Hamilton (population 1,130), Kidd G first found fame online through TikTok and SoundCloud, where he got his start posting songs he’d recorded with his friend Nolie Beats. In spring 2020 he caught the attention of Rebel Music, who signed him on the strength of his genre-warping talents. While early tracks like his debut single Sorry lean toward traditional hip-hop, he later brought an element of old-school country into his songwriting. As he continued posting his music on SoundCloud, Kidd G soon amassed a dedicated following undeniably drawn to his down-home charm and the honest detail of his lyrics. 

As he continued exploring his country roots, Kidd G soon came up with Dirt Road —a nostalgia-soaked ballad that quickly went viral, its video surpassing 5 million YouTube views in little over a month. I love country because it feels so natural to me, and you can really tell stories in the songs, says Kidd G, naming Hank Williams Jr. among the artists he was raised on. Now having surpassed 1.5M monthly Spotify listeners, his tracks have seen radio play from KIXX Country Radio in Australia, and reached new peaks on highly coveted country playlists including Amazon Music’s ‘Country Heat’ (peaked at #2), and Spotify’s ‘Hot Country’ (peaked at #3). Following his new partnership with Big Machine Label Group’s The Valory Music Co., Kidd G is now back in the studio and eager to share all new music that will continue to showcase his unique raw talent.

Christian French – Avalanche

CHRISTIAN FRENCH RELEASES AVALANCHE ALONG WITH THE MUSIC VIDEO

24-year-old pop singer-songwriter Christian French releases his new track Avalanche along with the music video via Disruptor Records/RCA Records. The video, which is directed by Olivia Shapiro, is Christian’s first taste of new music in 2021. Watch HERE.

Christian has spent his career centering his music on the hardships of anxiety and trying to rationalize its impact on mental health through an optimistic filter. But during the pandemic, he found himself stuck: he was struggling with his songwriting prowess, unsure of how to mine inspiration from his experiences in life at a time when quarantine limited the opportunities at hand.

For Christian, most of that soul-searching came from the demise of a three-year relationship which jostled the foundation of his approach to writing music. Avalanche is a byproduct of Christian reflecting on all his past relationships. It pivots from the introspection of prior releases to an interrogation of what exactly waters the seed of romantic doubt. It is a brisk pop song that gallops with passion, contrasting the sober realization that the time has come to move on from his partner. He worked with songwriters Jacob Kasher (Charlie Puth, Selena Gomez) and Jake Torrey (Justin Bieber), as well as producers Andy Seltzer (Maggie Rogers), Pink Slip and inverness.

Christian French says, I’ve found that in every relationship I’ve been in, there always comes this initial thought of me wondering what life would be like without this person, where I start to fantasize a better life on my own.  This thought starts out so innocent, but over time, the more I give that thought attention, the more and more it snowballs into what I actually want.  One simple thought grew into an avalanche.

About Christian French

Christian French, 24-year-old Indiana native has become one of America’s fastest-rising indie-pop stars. He learned to play piano by watching YouTube instructionals and started posting covers online, but it wasn’t until college that writing original music became a reality. He soon chased his dreams to Los Angeles. It was there in 2017, while sleeping on friends’ couches, that he penned his first single, love ride, which has amassed over 33 million streams globally and helped him build a rabid fanbase, setting the tone for his bright future. Just a year later, Christian joined friend and fellow pop artist Chelsea Cutler on a nationwide, sold-out North American tour followed by another, even bigger tour with Quinn XCII. He introduced a crisp, guitar-plucked sound with the independent release of 2018’s debut natural colors EP, which has racked up more than 76 million Spotify listens to date, and chased it with 2019’s breakthrough bright side of the moon, a six-track manifestation of his ruminations on mental health matched with tales of romance. bright side of the moon featured Christians hit track head first, which has amassed over 97 million streams worldwide. He followed this up by embarking on his debut headlining tour. In fall 2020, Christian released his third EP good things take time which embodied a more confident sound that straddled pop and rock without losing the clarity of its predecessor. The tracks featured on the EP received praise from TIME Magazine, Billboard, Ones To Watch, BELLO Mag, American Songwriter, and CelebMix. Additionally, Christian will be playing at Lollapalooza in Chicago, IL on Thursday, July 29th.

Traveling in a time of COVID – How Parnell Pharmaceuticals nasal spray can help protect travelers 

Traveling in a time of COVID – How Parnell Pharmaceuticals nasal spray can help protect travelers. 

As many are starting to venture out on vacations and air travel the must have items to take include hand sanitizer, and disinfecting wipes but recent research has shown that nasal sprays can help protect against some viruses. Especially during this critical time when many are still hesitant to be vaccinated, consumers will look to products such as these to provide an extra layer of protection.

A successful ENT specialist and a board-certified dermatologist took their talents to develop, manufacture, and market prescription and OTC products that maintain and restore mucosal and skin integrity. These nasal sprays, mouth sprays and wipes are the must have products for consumers to arm themselves to combat viruses, bacteria and provide another layer of protection against COVID-19.

Dr. Francis Parnell, a practicing Otolaryngology-Head and Neck (ENT) Surgeon for over 30 years is Chairman and C.E.O. of Parnell Pharmaceuticals, the pharmaceutical company he co-founded. In 1986 with his wife Dr. Diana Parnell. Diana Parnell is a board-certified dermatologist with extensive experience and expertise in cosmetic and laser surgery as well as general dermatology and head of Cosmetic and Laser Surgery Institute, Kentfield, CA. Together the couple bring years of consumer health experience, treating patients and developing oral, nasal and personal care products so that consumers could have options to protect themselves.

Parnell Pharmaceuticals announced the development of the topical nasal spray called Nomovid. Nomovid is based upon a substance licensed by Parnell from New Mexico Tech University to treat drug-resistant bacteria and fungi such as MRSA and Candida auris.

Our products provide an extra layer of antiseptic protection which is so helpful especially for those who travel frequently. Since it breaks down lipids in the viral envelope, we tested the nasal spray against the novel coronavirus, says Parnell. An independent, outside laboratory has confirmed our findings and found it to be greater than 99.7 % effective in vitro within five minutes against the SARS-CoV-2 virus which causes COVID-19.

Parnell’s newest patented product, Mouth Kote-MD Mouth Spray, contains MycoDelens and Natural Yerba Santa and has been shown with in vitro laboratory testing to be an effective antiseptic against Antimicrobial Resistant (AMR) pathogens including bacteria, fungi, and coronaviruses such as the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Mouth Kote-MD is an excellent pre-rinse before dental exams to help prevent COVID-19 and, in addition, it helps dry mouth and restores enamel. It has also been shown to be effective as well against Streptococcus mutans, a major cause of dental caries (cavities) and Candida albicans (yeast).

For the convenience of travel, individually packaged DermSol-MD® Antiseptic Face & Body wipes were developed specifically for topically decontaminating dangerous viruses like Coronavirus (COVID-19) and Antimicrobial Resistant (AMR) bacteria like MRSA. They moisturize the skin and contain natural Yerba santa. Unlike standard wipes and sanitizers, DermSol-MD® is free from alcohol, biocides, and other toxic chemicals and it does not cause skin irritation and destroy skin cells.  Conveniently packaged and individually wrapped they are perfect for on the go.

For more information about the product please visit  Parnell’s website.

In addition, as viral infections tend to start in the nasal passages, keeping the nose healthy can protect against colds, flu and respiratory issues. Parnell offers the following travel tips:

  1. Especially during this challenging time….if required, always wear your mask to cover your nose and mouth. As airplane and summer travel season picks up, have a travel kit ready before you board or head out on an adventure – extra masks, sanitizing wipes and nasal spray
  2. Keep nasal passages moist – Parnell’s Pretz-MD/Nomovid Saline Nasal Spray adds an extra layer of protection even if you are vaccinated
  3. Drink water, stay hydrated – always so important when it comes to cold/flu season. Fluids can help avoid dehydration especially with air travel.
