2019 Freestyle Has A Music Video Now

2019 Freestyle Has A Music Video Now

An artist who alters R&B with his visionary approach, sobhhï just released a new video for his 2019 freestyle track. sobhhï has been on a grind lately since he dropped his Black I EP in February. His innovative alternative R&B style with a sentimental focus makes sobhhï stand out from the crowd, and his artistic growth can be observed from the unique way he combines Rap, Hip-Hop, R&B and Pop elements in his work.

sobhhï’s self-directed video is a work of art. The stunning black and white visuals with an occasional splash of colors emphasizes the reflective nature of the video, and allows the audience to see the world from his eyes. Although much shorter than traditional music videos, 2019 freestyle captures a contrast between real and fake, serious and frivolous. The imagery of sobhhï driving a Lamborghini with the doors fully open and people sitting on top of the roof conveys a self-confident attitude unaffected by judgement. The pop-up lyrics that appear every now and then draws the attention away from the stark theme of the video and offers a comedic side note. Just like the rest of his EP, the music video for 2019 freestyle might appear like a minimalist, stripped down product, but a tremendous amount of work has been put into the making of the video as it was recorded in three distinct locations: Dubai, New York City and San Fransisco.

sobhhï had the following to say about his EP:

“I wanted to create an experience of night time and nocturnalism through the music; to experience something moving, extremely visceral; romantic, sensual, and dangerous… I would consider the BLACK series of EPs to be my most essential work, this is only the introduction”

2019 is a strong year for sobhhï since he is establishing his position as one of the up and coming Alt-R&B geniuses of the year with Black I and three other EP’s that are yet to come. In the meantime, check out the music video for 2019 freestyle from below:

The 6 Year-Long Wait Is Over, Hayden James’ Debut Album Between Us Is Out Now

Australian producer Hayden James is back, and this time with his most ambitious long form project yet, the Between Us album released via Future Classic. James previewed the album last week at Sidney as he headlined in Curve Ball. The album reflects on James’ 6 year long journey building a fan base that earned him over 300 million streams. James is on the verge of sharing his music live with his audience through an Australian, U.S. and European tour, which will be kicked off this August in New Zealand.

With Between Us, the artist elevates his heavenly electronic melodies to a new level, heavily inspired by synth pop. The lead single for the album, Nowhere To Go feat. NAATIONS, forces the audience and dance to the rhythm with its groovy bassline.

James’ sound becomes more spacious as the low ends get amplified with the double-platinum song Just Friends feat. Boy Matthews. Then comes Better Together feat. Runnin Touch, an exotic dance song or rather the missing part of our lives that we have all been searching for.

The self-titled Between Us emphasizes Panama’s soft and passionate vocals and prepares the audience for another euphoric tune with playful melodies, Remember You feat. Elderbrook. Fans should also check out the beautiful visualizers, especially the soothing technicolor-esque visualizer for Between Us.

James is on his way to share a live experience with his audience through his upcoming Between Us tour, starting in August.

Disciples Throw An Epic Party In A Photo Booth For “No Ties”

Disciples Throw An Epic Party In A Photo Booth For “No Ties”

The brilliant UK trio Disciples are back again with a colorful music video for their new single No Ties that takes place solely in a photo booth. Disciples prove they deserve the multi-platinum status once again with this cleverly designed party atmosphere within a small booth.

“After a crazy night out in Shoreditch with just the three of us… we noticed that people’s real characters come out when they go inside a photo booth,” Disciples said. “It was time to bring all that energy/wildness into four frames on the big screen. ‘No Ties’ is the perfect party tune to bring out that vibe in people, so it just felt like the right concept for this track!”

In the beautifully designed video, Disciples disorient their viewers by implementing a vertical video frame unlike the traditional horizontal frame. By doing so, they achieve a visual that resembles animated photo booth print-outs. Although the whole video is taped inside a booth, the creative trio managed to create a party atmosphere by utilizing colorful lights, a DJ stand and party items like cups that occasionally appear in the frame. The striking visuals combined with the high energy of the team conveys a party mood that appeals to an outgoing party-lover audience.

Soon after the release, No Ties earned the praise of Radio 1, Danny Howard in Friday’s Fire, Annie Mac as the Hottest Record in the world and Pete Tong with an exclusive live mix on the release day.

Disciples amassed over 2 billion streams with their hit songs How Deep Is Your Love and On My Mind, which earned them a platinum status. On My Mind was also the most played song in 2017 on BBC Radio 1. The song stayed on the iTunes Singles Chart Top 10 for ten weeks and BBC Radio 1 A-List for six weeks.

The trio is getting ready for an eventful summer as they will be performing in Hideout, Tomorrowland and S4 in the upcoming months. Good news for Ibiza-goers who missed Disciples on their last visit because they will put on several shows at the most iconic nightclubs in the White Isle, including Pacha, Ushuaia and the Ibizia Rocks Hotel. They will also be playing with their good ol’ partner Calvin Harris.

New Video From The Code Forces Us To ‘Slow Dance’ In Times Square

New Video From The Code Forces Us To ‘Slow Dance’ In Times Square

Merely weeks after the release of their new EP Mercury, The Code is back with a stunning audio-visual masterpiece for slowdancinginamerica.

The Code’s classic production style defies the conventional genre expectations, just as the unprecedented visuals used in the video offer a more post-modern twist to traditional music videos. The focus shifts from exciting visuals to two people dancing in front of a white backdrop, a sudden switch from grandiose effects to simplicity. The enticing dance performance gets streamed across te billboards in the Times Square as it keeps catching everyone’s attention.

The video’s innate complexity supports The Code’s notion that music has a potent effect that does not need to be bolstered by other sources of media.

The director for slowdancinginamerica was the legendary Joseph B. Carlin from TRANSFIXION who also directed the music video for The Code’s song moments and various other projects for XYLØ, CADE and Computer Magic.

Mercury EP is The Code’s most authentic work so far that also emphasizes their sole purpose of fostering a platform for original music free from the restrictions of classical genre expectations. moments, the lead single, has gained 450,000 streams and was premiered at 1Xtra by DJ Target.

The Code has a huge following as a revolutionary artist with their unique sound, but on another level of operation, The Code is also an amazing team player as they have collaborated with the likes of Miguel, Bryson Tiller, Quincy, Smokepurpp, Cassie, Les Twins, Justin Love and Kaleem Taylor.

The Code’s initial success with Gravity feat. G-Eazy was followed by other long format projects like Blue Electronica and Paramount, both have earned an accolade from outlets like Pigeons & Planes and The 405.

The Code Revolutionizes R&B-Electronic Music With New EP

The Code Revolutionizes R&B-Electronic Music With New EP

The Code’s new EP “mercury” is out today, a few months after teasing the us by releasing “moments”, which was first played at 1Xtra by DJ Target. On their mission of bringing down the barriers that distinguish genres, The Code is putting their advanced R&B/Hip Hop production skills to use and creating a space travel experience for people who are exposed to their artistic vision.

The Code opens up the EP with “system” to set the tone and lets the audience know that even though you can only hear with your ears, you will be immersed into a 3-D experience by just listening to this EP. The precision of the beats juxtaposing with a melody that resembles lo-fi but is also in harmony with every aspect of the production are the main reasons for this EP to sound like a message from distant galaxies.

In The Code’s own words, “This is what it must feel like to be retrograde”.

The Code keeps their identity anonymous to avoid distorted social media representations and to speak only through their art. This strategy has helped them a lot as it can be observed from the 8 million streams they have gained from “Gravity” featuring the rap legend G-Eazy.

The Code has also been praised by outlets like The 405 and Pigeons & Planes for their debut “Blue Electronica” and another long project “Paramount”.

Holly Gets Personal With Fans In New Music Video

Holly Gets Personal With Fans In New Music Video

Today is a strong day for Holly, Portuguese producer/DJ, as he unveiled the music video for his new single Encontrar feat. Slow J. The hip/hop artist is building anticipation for his upcoming EP – Avenal 2500 – which will be released on May 17th. The EP is speculated to be a very introspective work, as it can be interpreted from the reflective nature of this new single. Holly decided to team up with his close friend and successful Portuguese rapper Slow J for the production of this personal project.

Holly describes the meaning of the song and working with Slow J with these words:

“’Encontrar’ is an extremely important record for my soul at this point in my life. Every day, I’ve been facing this process of self-betterment and striving to become the best artist and person that I can be rather than fearing that I won’t achieve my goals, which makes me feel like I’m climbing up a never-ending stairway. It makes this record even more special to have the energy of Slow J, since he’s one of my closest friends in music and is also an artist that I look up to immensely.”

The music video was shot in Lisbon and directed/edited by Made in Lx, produced by Sente Isto and features the talented dancer Elohim Atons performing an evocative dance routine. Holly and Slow J also appear in the video, connecting with the audience through imagery.

GRiZ triggers emotions in “A New Day” (Feat. Matisyahu) music video

GRiZ triggers emotions in “A New Day” (Feat. Matisyahu) music video

GRiZ shines a light on gun violence and the horror it’s caused in his latest music video for “A New Day” (feat. Matisyahu). The empowering video follows the track that was written just days after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland and released on February 22nd as part of GRiZ’s upcoming album Ride Waves.

The raw video commentary features victims and families that have been directly affected by gun violence in some shape or form and footage from past shootings, including the recent tragedy at the Route 91 Festival in Las Vegas. Also highlighted in the video are activists and past protests in support of stronger gun violence prevention like the student-led March For Our Lives demonstration in Washington D.C.

Along with the new music, GRiZ calls on fans to support Brady (formerly the Brady Campaign Against Gun Violence) which encourages the community to #TakeActionNotSides and unite against gun violence. Visit bradyunited.org/act and add your voice to the millions urging senators to support S.42, legislation needed to expand background checks on gun sales and save lives.

At its core, the powerful music video reveals the damage gun violence can cause anyone no matter their age, sex, or race. It offers a plea to end this cycle of violence and hope for a new, better day.

One of my favorite bands (PERIOD) dropped a new song & music video last month and it’s fucking great. The vibe that Jungle creates with their music is just infectious. Their sound is classic but at the same time it just makes you want to dance. Please remember that this is coming from a guy who hates to dance but what are you supposed with something like this. I can barely sit still listening to it now as I write this post. If you aren’t familiar with Jungle I feel sorry for your life! Go see them live and stream everything you can get your hands on asap.

Soul Bandit – Living A Dream [VISUAL ACCOMPANIMENT]

Soul Bandit – Living A Dream [VISUAL ACCOMPANIMENT]

The every so talented Soul Bandit is back with something new for you to sing your eyes into. Besides being an incredibly talented producer and DJ, Soul Bandit now takes her turn at video production with her first ever original video. She made this whole thing by herself (which, all things considered, is pretty awesome since she is not a video producer or director of any kind)) and she had this to say about her latest piece of art:

“Although conceptually the video is completely separate from the meaning behind the song, I feel like the track has a very spacey/outer-worldly feel to it. I just wanted to have fun with making some visuals to go along with the song, so I just put together what felt right in the moment. This is my first attempt at (single handedly) making a full length visual accompaniment to a song, so although it isn’t perfect I enjoyed experimenting with making it and I feel like, when combined, it creates an appropriately enhanced experience.” – Soul Bandit

Video: St. Tiimbre – Body Moves

St. Tiimbre sure does make some beautiful music. Natashaa Adorlee Johnson’s voice is unique in all the best ways and really has a way of sticking out in your mind. The visuals that the bay area trio (which also includes AlwaysHustle favorites JULiA LEWiS & executive producer Amp Live) have given us for “Body Moves” are striking. The production quality is top shelf and I really think they did a fantastic job putting this entire project together. Now that this video is out, St. Tiimbre has also announced that their new ep “Body Moves” will be dropping on itunes on on 11/19. We will keep you posted on that but for now enjoy the video.
