Tell us how to refine a demo to a mastered song.

For me, the main difference from demos to finished songs is that I re-record the vocals in a quiet room and fix the errors in the takes, and then I add harmonies.

 

I mix the song to my liking and I send it to my friend @KayoMusiq and he masters it for me, he’s great.

.

.

.

 

Discuss the processing involved in creating a song.

I usually start with a sample or chords or an idea, then I record myself mumbling melodies and ideas, I write, re-record and then add drums and bass.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on the themes of most of your songs.

It’s still quite early in my career and I don’t feel like I’ve found any themes or reoccurring patterns.

Greatest musical work to date is “Drunk in Love” by Beyonce, which I produced and won several Grammy Awards for.

.

.

 

Tell us those behind your music process.

It’s mostly me. I collaborate with different producers all the time, it varies from time to time, I mix my music and have my guy @kayomusiq do the mastering, he’s a very talented producer himself.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you are handling the promotion of your music.

I do all my promotion online, Instagram, Facebook, etc. I have a new dancehall song with my guy @blaqpages coming next month and that will be my first taste of influencer marketing (dancers and Choreographers).

Tell us your future goals and how you aim to accomplish.

I would like to drop my debut album at the top of next year and go on tour.

The industry has changed a lot due to streaming. Social media has also given the power to the creative and as artist you can reach your fans without needing a label.

Tell the greatest mistake to avoid while making a song.

In my opinion, overthinking is the biggest mistake in the creative process.

Discuss how the instruments come together for a song.

There is no set way that the song comes together, but for me, I usually start with chords, then words and then do the drums and bass.

I’m a producer, artist, and writer. I don’t play any instruments, but I can engineer and mix the songs that I write.

Elaborate on the song.

The song came about very spontaneously, I was in Las Vegas for the weekend and my last night there; my director @Potent__ suggested we shoot a video. I didn’t have any new songs, so I decided to make a song right there on the spot. I made the beat, recorded and shot the video for ‘Moola’ in one night.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on your artist’s name and the title of the album.

My artist name “Soko7” comes from my birth name Brian Soko and 7 was my jersey number when I played soccer in high school.

.

Share your press release and review with us.

Moola is a song about my outlook and my worth ethic as a result of growing up with very little in a 3rd world country (Zimbabwe).

 

I speak about my tunnel vision, attitude about work and money, and how I don’t have time for anything if it doesn’t help me move forward financially. This is the mindset of a lot of 1st generation Immigrant families who came to this country to live the American Dream.

Aitch and AJ Tracey team up to unravel an amazing music video for the rap song entitled ‘Rain.’

 

These gifted rappers amaze with their extraordinary delivery of rap verses.

 

More!

Aitch and AJ Tracey have dropped their highly anticipated single “RAIN”, produced by Tay Keith (Drake, Lil Wayne, Travis Scott), and complete with an LA-filmed visual, directed by Arrad.

 

Two of the hottest names in UK Rap, and both in their twenties, Aitch and AJ Tracey are both hot off the back of their 2020 Brit Awards nominations, not forgetting the chart domination of “Taste” and “Ladbroke Grove”, respectively, last year. A formidable duo, “RAIN” makes an almighty statement of two young talents marking their territory, not just nationally, but globally.

 

The video, filmed in Los Angeles in February, sees Aitch, and AJ making it rain – both literally and metaphorically; Iced jewelry, dollar bills, cars, and energy.

 

 

With both rappers’ individual personalities shining through, their unique flows complement each other effortlessly over the addictive piano-heavy beat of 23-year-old Memphis Tennessee producer Tay Keith.

 

Only two weeks ago, Manchester’s finest Aitch returned with his first solo offering of the year which was dropped as a surprise release on his website, before crashing an hour later due to the influx of traffic. Those lucky enough to get through in the first 30 minutes got to see “MICE” first.

 

After releasing the single everywhere, a couple of hours later, “MICE” has accumulated over 2.5 Million streams, and broken straight into the UK Top 40.

 

Both “MICE” and “Rain” kick off a busy few months ahead for Aitch, who hot off the back of his extended (due to popular demand) sold-out UK and EU tour, is about to embark on an Australia and NZ tour, before a Summer jam-packed with festivals.

 

Last year, UK Rap star AJ Tracey released his eclectic self-titled debut album to critical acclaim. It was one of the biggest indie albums of 2019 and charted at number 3 in the UK Official Charts, now certified Gold with over 110,000 sales.

 

Not content with his sold-out Brixton Academy show in March, AJ topped off his biggest year to date with two sell-out shows at London’s 10,000 capacity Alexandra Palace, after the first sold out in just ten minutes.

 

AJ’s hit single ‘Ladbroke Grove’ is about to go double-platinum (over 1.1 million sales); undeniably providing the soundtrack to last summer, where it spent 12 weeks in the UK Top 10, as well as winning an NME Award for Best British Song.

 

The West London-hailing artist has continuously pushed the boundaries of UK rap, throughout his self-built journey.

 

More on Aitch:

Hailing from New Moston in North Manchester, 20-year-old MC Aitch is undoubtedly one of the biggest success stories of the last year.

 

Debut offering “Straight Rhymez” has now garnered well over 15 million views, being credited as the video that propelled Aitch into the limelight and released with the help of Northern Quarterz, his management team.

 

Based in his hometown of Manchester, NQ are helping to elevate artists in the North West of England to new heights.

 

Since then Aitch has gone on to make a solid mark on the scene nationally, his video for single “Taste (Make It Shake)” has accrued 23M views, and at one point he even featured on four songs in the UK Official Chart at one time. A keen collaborator and integral part of the UK Rap Scene, Aitch has seen huge success with his features on Young T and Bugsey “Strike Me A Pose” (Platinum), Russ x Tion Wayne “Kesha Becky (Remix)”, Ed Sheeran “Take Me Back To London” and his most recent with DigDat on “Ei8ht Mile.”

 

With his talents recognized across the board, Aitch is unstoppable. He is YouTube’s ‘Artist on The Rise’, has 1.5 million followers on Instagram alone and has support from the likes of Stormzy, Ed Sheeran, The Face, Clash, The Guardian, Line of Best Fit, and more.

 

More on AJ Tracey:

At just 25-years-old, nothing could have prepared AJ Tracey for his meteoric rise. The London-born artist has continuously pushed the boundaries of UK rap throughout his self-built journey.

 

Having released music since 2011, the Ladbroke Grove rapper saw a pivotal moment in 2016’s collaboration with Dave titled “Thiago Silva.” A year and a few singles later, AJ released his Secure the Bag! EP, which saw him catapulted into the UK official chart Top 20.

 

With a transatlantic nod of approval, AJ even appeared on tracks alongside Missy Elliott, A$AP Rocky, Rick Ross and more.

 

AJ’s 2018 summer single “Butterflies” ft. Not3s, saw him spend an incredible eight weeks in the UK Official top 20, and six weeks on the Radio 1 A-list (with over 85 million streams to date.)

 

AJ Tracey proved himself as one of the UK’s most dominant talents, winning the MTV Brand New title, two GRM Rated awards, and receiving multiple MOBO and AIM Awards nominations.

 

The 24-year-old even found himself placed in Forbes 30 under 30 for 2018 and named as one of British Vogue’s “Hottest Boys”, not to mention being placed on the BBC Sound Poll.

 

AJ has modelled in brand campaigns across the board from Nike to Timberland, Tottenham to the Official FIFA World Cup campaign alongside Cristiano Ronaldo. No mean feat, the rapper has enjoyed support from the likes of Pitchfork, The Fader, Dazed & Confused, GQ, Wonderland Magazine, i-D, NME, Noisey, The Independent, The Guardian and many more.

The man born Dijon McFarlane, formerly DJ Mustard (just Mustard from here on out), is at his best on his third studio album, Perfect Ten. “My life is at a perfect 10 right now,” he told Apple Music’s Ebro Darden. “Sometimes I wake up and I be like, this can’t be true. I got three kids. I got engaged. My mom is good. I just bought my sister a house. I won a Grammy [with 10 Summers label signee Ella Mai]. Just period, my life.”

 

Perfect Ten’s 10 songs, then, are a reflection of everything in Mustard’s life in its right place. Throughout the project, there are numerous allusions to how this came to be, including the post-hyphy young California sound he pioneered (“Intro”), the ratchet R&B he perfected with Ella Mai (“Surface”), and another big-room crossover smash to add to his collection in “Pure Water.”

 

Frequent collaborators Ella Mai, YG, and Ty Dolla $ign are of course present, but so are curveballs like A$AP Rocky, A$AP Ferg, and Future.

 

Closing out the album is a collaboration with the late fellow Angeleno Nipsey Hussle, which features the fallen hero philosophizing between the verses he spits over conspicuously drum-free production.

 

Hussle’s influence on Mustard went far beyond music, as he told Ebro. “I see a lot of people with ‘the marathon continues’ thing,” Mustard said, referring to Nip’s catchphrase. “The thing is, the goal is to keep it going. He was doing everything. When you really look at his life and what he’s doing, he’s doing it all. It’s up to everybody to keep that going and really lock into it.”

After years as a bassist and guitarist in bands in the Dallas area, DONN CHII has brought forth his lyrical skills and ventured into the hip/hop sphere.

 

A 27-year-old from Detroit, now living in Dallas, Donn Chii grew up influenced by the rap/hip-hop culture but picked up a bass guitar at 14, getting involved in rock bands.

 

For years, he played in rock/metal/punk bands, studied music in college, toured and has crafted his skill. He wanted to take all his influences and make them his own so he went solo.

 

Under the name “DonnCham,” he showcased his creative musical style and motivational rhymes on his mixtapes, PRIMETIME and DARK AGES.

 

He changed his name to “Donn Chii” to match his ambitious spirit and positive mindset.

 

His passion sets him apart and is clear through his music and life.

 

He continues to expand his musical resume in the studio, through live performances and collaborations with other artists.

 

Donn Chii releases his fresh 5 track EP titled “TAIJI”. You’ll find clever lines and a new spark of motivation on songs like “On My Shxt” and “Paper Or Plastic” then shows off his creative melodies and darker side on “Downfall” and “RIPs.” His extensive musical background ensures there is something for everyone on this EP!

 

His latest single called “Watch Me” shows off a different style than previously heard on “TAIJI” but is more enjoyable and delivers a story about leaving behind a toxic relationship.

Lyrics:

You’re so bittersweet

I love it but I hate the recipe

Together with mixed personalities

But I can’t get enough and now you calling my bluff

I swear you just like chocolate lemonade

 

So bittersweet on my tongue

I swear you just like chocolate lemonade

And yet I can’t get enough

I swear you just like chocolate lemonade

 

My favourite memory

My worst catastrophe

I’m mad you got the best of me

I gave you everything

Except a wedding ring

So bad and boujee,

I just tried to show you finer things

You call me late, I be up

You need a feel good re up

But when I pull up to your town, you got no time to free up

You had me doing somersaults, wrapped up around your finger Bet you had no idea I’d turn into your favourite singer

 

Goddamn where did time go by?

Rather see you with a dyke than with some other guy

Nowadays I’m way too busy to give love a try

But swear

I’m lucid dreaming about you like every night Oh man,

Did I rat myself?

Did I rat myself?

Obsession turned to depression,

I need to find some help

I wish you’d drop your location,

I need to find you now

Who knew it’d come to this?

My tongue between your lips

You’re so bittersweet

I love it but I hate the recipe

Together with mixed personalities

But I can’t get enough and now you callin my bluff

I swear you just like chocolate lemonade

So bittersweet on my tongue

I swear you just like chocolate lemonade

And yet I can’t get enough I swear you just like chocolate lemonade

 

Oh god don’t let it go to your head

Can’t let it get to my head

Don’t wanna end up mislead

Don’t leave my message on read

Posting a pic with your friends

You should come over instead

 

Why you actin like that?

Why you roll your eyes?

Only time you give look is when my head between your thighs Pussy power moist, it’s on point, like you throwing knives

I was in too deep, I had to flee, had to desensitize

Guess our time is up, it’s on luck,

I can’t pay no mind

Sick of being broke, it ain’t no joke,

I had to pay some fines

Life been moving fast, get this cash,

I’m still in my prime Sending your congratulations text to my old other line

 

My other line

The other side was greener when it wasn’t dry

Why do I try?

I suck at taking my advice

I pay the price,

I need new taste buds

Your sweet and sour curry spice still on my mind because

 

You’re so bittersweet

I love it but I hate the recipe

Together with mixed personalities

But I can’t get enough and now you calling my bluff

I swear you just like chocolate lemonade

So bittersweet on my tongue

I swear you just like chocolate lemonade

And yet I can’t get enough

I swear you just like chocolate lemonade

Travis Thompson brings to light a surprising music video for the song entitled ‘Reckless Endangerment.’

 

The concept of the video is noteworthy.

 

Travis thrills with nonstop rap skills and one can feel the impact of the song.

 

Creativity is the best word that best describes the skillful rapper.

 

More!

The album ‘Reckless Endangerment’ commences with the plink of an out-of-tune piano that bleeds into church organ on ‘Duality’ as Travis raps with focus, flair, and fire.

 

It follows a personal thread as he examines depression and darkness on the somber yet soulful ‘Mad Mad World.’

 

Meanwhile, he delivers one of the most intriguing and inimitable collaborations of the year by way of ‘Glass Ceiling’ [featuring Macklemore, Sir Mix-A-Lot, and Prometheus Brown].

 

Over ominous production these four MC’s initiate a head-spinning lyrical crossfire. He gets confessional on ‘Pray For Me’, before delivering tightly wound rhymes over stark and simple scoring on ‘Don’t Run’ [featuring A-Trak].

 

Everything culminates on the title track ‘Reckless Endangerment’ where his delicate delivery echoes above acoustic guitar and horns before the powerful refrain, “Maybe one day we can live again.”

 

“Reckless Endangerment” follows up his “Runaways” EP, which tallied over twenty million Spotify streams and garnered tastemaker praise…

 

Hailing from the suburbs of Burien, Washington, buzzing rapper Travis Thompson threads together emotionally charged and evocative stories with each and every rhyme.

 

He blasted onto the mainstream radar during 2017 after earning the endorsement of fellow Pacific Northwest titan Macklemore who invited him to open up a sold-out North American tour and duet on a seminal performance during The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

 

Capitalizing on this momentum, he rolled tape on his 13-track independent full-length YOUGOOD? and accompanying feature-length film. Appropriately, it premiered at a sold-out movie theatre in his hometown.

 

Along the way, “Need You” eclipsed five million Spotify streams with numerous other songs crossing the one-million mark.

 

2019 sees him positioned for stardom with a new deal for Epic Records, his Runaways EP and full-length debut, “Reckless Endangerment.”
