“Head Over Feet” – MXRTY THE PXRTY
A fine combo of old-school funk and alternative hip-hop, exciting new artist, MXRTY THE PXRTY brings the summer party with the latest single “Head Over Feet”! The American artist wrote this song with long-time friend Chazei, who is also featured on the single. They drank a bottle of their favorite gin with the goal to write something fun, rather than micromanage the creation process.
“Yakusoku” – Low Mak
“Yakusoku” by Low Mak is sonically the perfect marriage of soft and hard, with a singer with soft, dulcet tones, and a heavy bassline!
Low Mak is a Portuguese music producer/dj based in Madrid, Spain. His debut was in 2018. Within a year, he played in the biggest electronic music festival in Portugal “RFM Somnii” where he shared the stage with acts such as Steve Angelo, Alan Walker, Garmiani, Cesqeaux and Corey James. A year later, he released his first single “YGUOL”, his first EP You Can’t Fucking Stop Me, and later on the singles “The Heartless”, “Le Noir”, “Le Rouge”, “Xenia”, “Existence” and “Enceladus”. Low Mak’s musical influences include different genres such as industrial, metal, mid-tempo and bass music, as well as artists like Rezz, Gesaffelstein, Nine Inch Nails and Deftones.
“Said It After” – Summy
Los Angeles, CA
What really caught my attention about this song is the unexpected fairy theme in the video! The stunning, whimsical aesthetic and serene visuals are such a contrast to the subject matter, which I love!
“This is a song about being in love with someone whose words can put you into a deep trance by saying all the things you want to hear. Only to realize that it was all a cover up for their demons and battles that were placed on you and ultimately, broke you. So when their words come out again, they mean nothing anymore because they ‘Said It After’ struck the heart for the last time.” Summy confides.
“Too Close To Call” – Ladybyrd
At just 18 years old, British songstress, Ladybyrd possesses artistic sophistication and talent beyond her years! The stage name, Ladybyrd is a term of endearment that her maternal grandfather gave to her mum, and then passed down to her. She learned to express her emotions creatively from a childhood.
Ladybyrd says, “‘Too Close To Call’ is a fictional story of a secret relationship. It’s from the perspective of the girl, trying to come to terms with the impossibility of the situation. She is secretly wanting to leave as she knows it’s wrong and unrealistic, but she is still infatuated with the person. That said, I hope listeners will use their imagination to find their own special interpretation.”
“Prada Ma” – Yeloboi Tommy
22-year-old Australia (via Hong Kong) rapper, Yeloboi Tommy is taking the hip-hop world by storm with his latest single, “Prada Me”!
With sick flow, raw, poetic lyricism, accompanied by impeccable production (by longtime producer/little bro, 99hurts), “Prada Me” is the anthem for anyone who can relate to going after your dreams, encountering obstacles, successes and fake friends. A catchy chorus to sing along to with both middle fingers up in the air!
