Paying homage to old school RnB, her EP encapsulates the nostalgic essence that radiates from everything composing the records, from instrumentals, lyrics her powerful voice and the delivery.

David Guetta Talks Hip Hop Culture and Lucky Number 7 –

By Allison Kugel

David Guetta has become a music impresario, churning out beat banging, genre busting pop songs that have been topping the charts for nearly a decade with mega hits like Titanium featuring Sia; Where Them Girls At featuring Flo Rida and Nicki Minaj; Club Can’t Handle Me featuring Flo Rida; Who’s That Chick featuring Rihanna and I Gotta Feeling featuring The Black Eyed Peas. Guetta is the King of Collabs. His creative input on a song almost assures chart topping status and his fans have dubbed his music, “Guetta-blasters,” an homage to his bold immersion into hip hop culture, and his constant and effortless ability to blend hip hop and pop music with an addictive beat.

Born in France to liberal intellectuals who shunned materialism, Guetta says he yearned for a more glamourous life, which he soon discovered in Europe’s underground club scene where he began deejaying as a teenager. He also fell in love with all things American, as he described to me, delving into American books, movies and music, and yearning to conquer the stateside music scene.

Rapper Arabb Luciano On Debut Joint ‘Don’t Understand’ feat. Rick Ross and More –

When we discuss artists going from the streets to the suites, it’s often a long-running journey with lots of super-grind and disappointment as well as horror stories. Rising Chicago rapper Arabb Luciano has those stories as well, however, his debut single Don’t Understand Ft. Rick Ross, precisely one-year after his release from prison has him well on his way in an industry that is easy to get overlooked in. Co-founder of Crescent Records along with his managers Ayman Baker and Tamer Refaie, the business-minded trio caught the ear and business imagination of Ross who flew into Chicago to lay his verse on the joint AND appear in the music video for the single. Crescent Records now has a collaboration with Ross’ MMG…I’d say that is a heck of a story!

Alt Pop Band Exnations Glow On Debut Ep “Tiny Sound In The Dark” –

Alternative pop trio EXNATIONS bring light to a darkness on their debut EP “Tiny Sound In The Dark,” out TODAY. The band, comprised of Sal Mastrocola, Taylor Hughes, and John O’Neill, combines two obviously opposite emotions in their music and meshes them together to create a relatable (and danceable) sound. Although self-defined as a ‘sad’ band, their color palette remains pastel, splashing hues of pale pink and aquamarine throughout their graphics, seemingly representing the dance-able side to their music (and exploring the clear contrast between both emotions). Dream-like, somewhat hazy, synthy; “Tiny Sound In The Dark” is a more-than-promising debut release, laced with sparkle and anticipation. The elements of pop music are clear, but what’s even more fascinating about EXNATIONS is the anthemic sense of empowerment the trio produces on their first effort. To promote the EP release, EXNATIONS has a string of four EP release shows this month to promote “Tiny Sound In the Dark,” sponsored by idobi radio’s Spinning Thoughts. About the release of “Tiny Sound In The Dark”, the band states:

“Tiny Sound in the Dark is the most immediate collection of songs I’ve ever had a hand in. The band gave ourselves permission to lean into the unabashed energy and aesthetic of our favorite pop music in a way that still feels true to where we came from. As a guy who has been in punk and emo bands for my whole life, the sounds, textures, and themes we explored on this record brought such a jolt of new energy and enthusiasm to my songwriting process. This EP is the first of many permutations of that enthusiasm and love. We hope you love it”

New Single “Pullin Up” Out Now from Eric Bellinger and Compton Rapper AD –

R&B king Eric “EAZY” Bellinger has been in the studio with frequent collaborator AD, and news dropped today (along with first single, “Pullin Up”) that the duo will be releasing a full-length project together soon! On “Pullin Up” Eric and AD are singing and rapping their praises for the bad chicks who pull up to the curb and catch their eye. But even though “ladies man” is no new role for Bellinger, he is exploring a new side of himself with this project. In fact as soon as Eric and AD caught a vibe in the studio, they adopted nicknames that became the alter-egos this concept album will be based on. ‘Poncho Belly’ and ‘Dizzle’ are the duo’s new monikers, and with new names comes a totally new chemistry. As Bellinger himself explained, “We adopted nicknames for each other in the studio instantly! I had recently just come back from Mexico and I bought every color poncho I could find out there, and AD was on his classy hood player shit as always, so it was only right to call him Dizzle. What started off as a joke birthed into what will be a proud moment for us when this album drops.”
