[Audio] Supa Slackas – “Brillance” [Prod: MKSB]

supaslackabrillance
Compromised of Pro Era members Dyemond Lewis and Swank Master Raw, the Supa Slackas are a down to earth, expressive, and laid back duo. Passionate about raw authentic hip hop, the two have released their third single together “Brillance”.

Produced by MKSB, the jazz influenced guitar loop and hard hitting kicks and high hats provide a perfect landscape for the Slackas smooth flows. Possibly inspired lyrics by recent socials controversies, Dyemond and Swank Master Raw rap about fair judgement, equal rights, spirituality, and the freedom of artistic expression and breakdown to give every listener relatable content.

With no word of any projects in the works, besides the affiliation with Pro Era, the Supa Slackas definitely have the potential to become a pivotal hip hop group in New York scene and are already gaining a cult following.

[Interview] TiRon & Ayomari talk self-love, getting out of their comfort zone, and why they make music

Interview by: Martin Bauman

As they’ll tell you, TiRon & Ayomari are tired of hearing the same old music. With their latest full-length effort, The Great New Wonderful, they offer an alternative — boasting that “happiness is guaranteed,” and then following through on that promise. “The best music has not been created already,” says Ayomari. “The human condition always changes,” adds TiRon, “so as the human condition changes, so should the message. Yeah, we want you to jam, but we’ve been jammin’ for a long time. Yeah, we want you to party, but we’ve been partying for a long time. There’s so many things going on within society that are little nuances that the music doesn’t reflect, and [we’re seeing] a disconnect [as a result].” TGNW is at-times uplifting, reassuring, dance-inducing, a call-to-action, and at all times, refreshingly different.

If you haven’t yet heard of the Los Angeles-based duo, now’s the time to get on board. After their superb A Sucker For Pumps release, followed by the strong offerings of HNGRY and The Wonderful Prelude series, they’ve made fans out of the likes of Q-Tip and Diddy and proven themselves as much more than a one-album success. More than being great artists, though, the two happen to be thoughtful and profound individuals with plenty to say. We caught up with TiRon & Ayomari to talk about the importance of self-love in the black community, getting out of their comfort zone, why they make music, and much more.

[Audio] Daye Jack- “Save My Soul” (Prod. Matthew Engst)

Say hello to Daye Jack, the NYU student turned artist hailing from Atlanta, Georgia, and his new track “Save My Soul” from his upcoming “Soul Glitch” EP. “Save My Soul” has Daye rapping some powerful bars over an electronically inspired production, courtesy of Matthew Engst.

Daye Jack had a bright future ahead of him in the world of soccer, though decided to leave it behind to create music, and study computer science, which has been working out quite well for himself. With a couple of releases under his belt, including his debut “Hello World”, Daye is ready to take it to the next level. His sound is a blend between soul, and hip-hop with a modern influence that sits in the era of experimental rap, and alternative R&B.

“Save My Soul” begins with an interesting use of samples to intrigue the listener, when before long, Daye Jack jumps in with his catchy hook. Next up has Daye tackling the chorus where he states the name of the track, with some focus on the pristine production brought to us by frequent collaborator Matthew Engst. Overall, “Save My Soul” is a really well done tune, from the lyrics and hook, to the production, which leaves the listener clicking that repeat button over and over.

Daye Jack is just about to drop his “Soul Glitch” release, which is slated for a June 30th release. With the ability to switch up his style at the blink of an eye, Daye has the unique talents required to please a wide variety of fans.
