Flare – “Bad Ting”

September 20, 2017

By Kaitlin

Up-and-coming New York artist Flare embraces his more melodic side and delivers the incredibly catchy “Bad Ting,” the latest track stemming from his studio sessions as he preps for his next project.

The Washington Heights native made some waves the past few years following the release of his debut, 2015’s NoToNoise, and its standout single​s​, “Real Ones” and “Greatness.” Whereas those tracks were more steeped in pure Hip-Hop, “Bad Ting” finds Flare switching things up and spitting with a Caribbean-tinged sing-song flow. He’s clearly been inspired by a certain someone, and let’s hope her role as his muse doesn’t wear off anytime soon.

Check out “Bad Ting” here.

CD-Rám – “Diverse” [Album]

September 18, 2017

By Kaitlin

p what you live. The Egyptian/Lebanese born artist is unique in the sense that he freely merges today’s rhythmic energy with the delivery and authenticity of those that he looks up to. If experience is a measure of anything, it’s fair to say that CD-Rám (or Ramee) has lived what most will consider good enough for one lifetime.

Today, he shares those experiences with us in detail on his debut mixtape, “Diverse.” Led by singles “Through the City” and “My Party,” the project will find you hoping to play the summer back with its intoxicating energy.

“Every project I create has to do with how I’m feeling and the shit that’s going on in my life in that point in time. Thank God life’s been good right now, the vibes are right, the energy is right, the people around me are just the perfect fit to my life so
everything’s moving smooth…” CD-Rám says of his 5-track EP.

Stream “Diverse” now on Spotify or Apple Music, and if you’re in New York, catch him at SOB’s tomorrow!

Azia – “Pull Up On Ya” [Video]

September 16, 2017

By Kaitlin

Brooklyn’s Azia drops a brand new visual for her single “Pull Up On Ya.” The carribean-tinged anthem is brazen and gutty, with Azia taking viewers to the trenches. Paying homage to her Haitian roots, Azia integrates the history of Voodoo, a cultural rooting that many slaves often called upon for spiritual freedom and enlightenment. Azia makes it clear that voodoo is not the negative connotation of “black magic” that people often assume but rather a jovial culturally enriched vital spark.

These are the only people that Delrondae keeps around him–they’ve been there since day one.
