Tabares24 – Drop It on Site

Industry Spotlight, Music, Promo, Videos

Miami native creates club bangers perfect for the end of social distancing 

MIAMI, FL – If there’s one thing Tabares24 is known for, it’s making club bangers and good quality music. The fast-rising musician from Little Havana in Miami, Florida has been making a name for himself over the past few years with his hard-hitting tunes and his one-of-a-kind flow. His most recent single, “Drop It On Site” is yet another sure-to-be-hit.  

Influenced by an eclectic melting pot of different music over the years – from Hip Hop to Rock to Bachata and Salsa – Tabares24 fuses different sounds across bouncy beats in ways that get people moving. He is making his mark on the music industry with his 305 style of Hip Hop and Club anthems. And over the course of the stay-at-home orders following the COVID-19 pandemic, he has slowly put together a catalog of songs that are now ready to release to a world that’s ready to get out and party. He is the producer of these music releases as well. 

“This new single is going to be a huge club song,” Tabares24 said. “It’s kind of my way of pushing back against these stay-at-home orders. I’m basically saying if you want to shut the clubs down, that’s fine, we’ll bring the clubs to the gram. It’s definitely a club banger and people are going to love it.” 

Tabares24 is utilizing the help of some strippers to help market the song and the forthcoming music video, which is set to drop later this month. By utilizing the social media platform Tick Tock, Tabares24 has recruited strip club dancers who are currently out of work and having them dance to his song. Eventually, he said the music video will bring the strippers back to the club scene, as well as showcase them dancing around him on a party boat with him in the center entertaining everyone.  

“We all have cabin fever right now and we desperately want the normalcy of Miami life back,” he said. “That’s what this song is about – getting back to what we love and having a good time.” 

In addition to “Drop It On Site,” Tabares24 has released another single called “Where’s My Freedom At.” Unlike most of his other music, this song takes a different approach and is a bit more slow and soulful. It samples bit of Kanye’s music and features “hard lyrics” that explore everything going on with the global pandemic in ways that commiserate with others wanting to rebel against the negative side effects of social distancing. 

Both singles will soon be available across all digital streaming platforms, with a music video for “Drop It On Site” to follow later this month.

Dissolver No. 7 – Move Along

Industry Spotlight, Music, Promo, Videos

Country Rocker Dissolver No. 7 offers America a different perspective
on current affairs with new album ‘Star-Spangled Punch’

MACON, GA – Cosmic Country, Southern Rock and Gospel collide in a hot new album from
Dissolver No. 7, led by Georgia-based singer/songwriter Jerry Akin. The musician has made a
name for himself in the industry as a go-to songwriter, with credits for bands such as Innocent
Ivey, The Hog Mountain Brothers and Atomic Sun, just to name a few. But with the release of
his second album “Star-Spangled Punch,” Akin hopes to let the world see a different side of him
– one more transparent and honest and deeply personal than anything he’s previously put out.
The album features nine songs that all explore, in one way or another, the various allegiances
to which we pledge ourselves and the motivations that go into those commitments. Akin said
it’s a timely album for the state of affairs the U.S. finds itself in these days and in some ways,
the challenging messages in his songs will cause listeners to look at the world around more

“The overarching theme is being mindful of what you serve,” Akin said. “What Kingdom are you
crowning? It starts off with a critique of our tendency to cling on to politics over identity – to
dig our heels into something and pledge allegiance to ideals and convictions. All those human
things are going to spoil at some point, and it’s sort of a letdown whenever we invest ourselves wholeheartedly into anything. So I’m admonishing people to be careful of what we’re pledging
our hearts and minds and lives to, because there can be a brokenness to it if we’re not careful.
Part of the human condition is recognizing that the things that divide us aren’t going to be the
things that save us.”

Akin said that though he does touch on spiritual things in his music as a natural outflow of the
faith that plays such a powerful part in his life, he doesn’t consider himself to be a Gospel artist.
In fact, he doesn’t like to label his unique sound and style into any one genre at all. He’s just
someone who writes songs about real life – his faith is part of that, but so are heartbreak and
love and joy and all the other stuff that humans experience in life.

Akin has been writing songs for more than 25 years. In 2014, he launched his own label
DixiePhonic Records, and started recording all original material from his Southern Mystic
Studios. Sometimes a rebel, always a maverick, Akin has a sound that kicks back against
mainstream Country music trends. And though he frequently recalls outlaw Country and roots-
based Rock & Roll styles, he is never afraid to experiment – sometimes combining unusual
sounds, backward tape loops, or otherworldly noises in an otherwise traditional-sounding
production. The resulting sound is one that reflects his personal motto: “Rooted in the earth,
reaching for the heavens.”

“First and foremost, I want people to enjoy the music,” he said. “I feel like the songs I create are
catchy and the music is infectious, but there’s also something deeper to the lyrics that I think
people can listen to and find hope. I’d like my music to be something that presents a message
that even in our brokenness there’s always a way forward. There’s hope out there and a way to
come together and a way to heal. I think people need a lot of healing right now.”

“Star-Spangled Punch” is slated to drop across all streaming platforms on July 4. Two singles
from the projects – “Move Along” and “Navigator” – are already available for download.

Lendpha – Fire

Industry Spotlight, ME Blog, Music, Promo, Videos

Haitian-born artist inspires others to overcome challenges
in pursuit of dreams with forthcoming album ‘Fever Dreams’ 

MIAMI, FL – Marc Sans Souci – better known by his stage name Lendpha – is a firm believer in the idea that anyone can follow their dreams and make it. His own personal journey of humble beginnings in Haiti to fast-rising artist in Miami is a perfect example of how hard work pays off in the end. And his debut album “Fever Dreams,” which is set to be released June 30, is a diverse musical examination of that journey. 

The 10-song project features a variety of different sounds and vibes, all underneath the idea of chasing success and the challenges that come along the way. The title is derived from the notion of having good dreams while sleeping, though sweating through the night – a metaphor that mirrors the hard work that so often accompanies ambition. Lendpha is no stranger to hard work and challenges along the path to success. 

“Growing up in Miami, I eventually met a guy named Martin Luciano who encouraged me to get into music,” Lendpha said. “I moved to New York and was starting to make a name for myself. But in 2016, I had a major breakdown in life. My daughter was being born and her mother had cheated on me while she was pregnant. It broke my heart and destroyed me, and it was hard for me to find myself again. I also found myself being a single father raising a daughter. Through all of that, I realized I needed to channel my inner self, and for me, the best way to do that was through music. I started writing and with Luciano’s help, I’ve been rocking ever since. I’ve put some singles out here and there, and a lot of people have been vibing then and liking them. This project is the culmination of the body of work I’ve been developing over the past year, and I think it will really show people not only my journey and what I’m capable of as an artist, but also inspire them to push through their own challenges as they chase their dreams.” 

Lendpha said his sound and style are definitely unique not only because of his original content but also because of his sound – which takes inspiration from his Caribbean roots while also nodding to some of the great Hip Hop artists of the past.  

“I want my music to be known for positive energy and good vibes,” he said. “My music represents anyone who can follow their dreams and make it. It’s about self-belief. A lot of people are going through stuff and don’t know how to channel that energy from the inside. My music is here to help them believe in themselves. If they can hear my songs and see me doing it, then it will help them believe that they can get it done as well.” 

The initial single from Lendpha’s forthcoming album is called “Fire” and is also coming out on June 30th. The upbeat, energy-filled song has a predominant Afro-beat, with a vibe that is reminiscent of French Montana’s “Unforgettable.” Lendpha said it’s a track that women will be especially attracted to.

Naj8 – Be my Peace (Prod: Pharaoh Vice)

Blog, Industry Spotlight, Music, Promo

Young East Coast artist, Naj8 combines genres with fresh beats for unique love song, “Be my Peace” 

BOSTON, MA – Najja Lee is confident that his choice for his artist name Naj8 will bring him good luck. Born in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on the 8th day of the 8th month, Najja’s lucky number has always been number eight. Rising from the hard times of losing his mother at an early age, he moved from Florida to Atlanta, where, as good fortune would have it, Naj8 was exposed to music that spoke to him. 

Growing up, music provided a world for him to escape to. Now as an artist, Naj8 is making music for others to escape to as well. Primarily a rapper and R&B singer whose potential is still being unlocked, Naj8 can kick it in many different styles. 

Recorded in Atlanta, his song “Be my Peace” is a love song about finding the right one. After he and a friend started working on the same beat, the song came together in the studio as a combination of each artist’s take on the track. “It was at a time when we were both a little heartbroken,” Naj8 said, and the song talks about all the feelings they wanted to have and to know personally. 

Naj8 uses his songwriting skills to make music that is real and truthful, creating an atmosphere that connects emotions. Naj8 says what people are thinking about love, depression, heartbreak and more, and the music is captivating because he writes about what people are really feeling inside. “Either you’ve come to terms with these feelings or you’re running away from these feelings, but you’ve felt these feelings before.” 

Although he didn’t initially think about making his own music, Naj8 has always loved listening to music from all genres. While living in Atlanta, his circle of friends was filled with artists who were rapping and free-styling. In 2016, during his sophomore year in high school, Naj8 decided to get serious about his own music career. At first, he wanted to have the same vibe as rappers he was listening to, such as Lil Uzi, Migos, The Weeknd and Future. He moved on to naturally craft a style that was different and more his own. “I started to put my own influences on the music like how I know music,” Naj8 said. “That’s when things started to change.” Becoming more confident in his ability, he was able to create music that gives a truly unique experience to his listeners. 

Naj8 is working hard to make sure that his message is heard. He returns to the recording studio next week to begin work on a new EP. Ready to push his limits as an artist, he is determined to help as many as he can through his music. “If people feel like they’re alone, I will show them that there is no alone – we’re together in this!” The power and emotion of Naj8’s music is worth delving into.

Ooday – Pussy Demon

Multitalented Ooday offers mixtape for multiple audiences with ‘It Factor’ 

NEWBURGH, NY – Legacy … so it begins.  

Those are the first words on the new mixtape from New York artist Ooday, but they’re also the prophetic words for a young new artist whose unique sound and style are destined for greatness.  

Having survived the streets of Newburgh, New York – often the victim and the suspect of violence – Ooday not only found himself in prison for more than three years but also found a love for telling stories through music. Each song he creates takes you through a different journey, all of which is encapsulated on his mixtape “It Factor.” 

“What I was aiming for with this first tape is to show my versatility and that I can rap lyrically,” he said. “I can make songs kids want to listen to with rhythm and bounce to dance to. And I can make songs for the females to listen to and go to the clubs. This is a project that shows that I can do all these things musically. I put lyrics into catchy rhythms, and I can deliver both good rhythms and good content. That’s more than most other artists out there today.” 

 “Pussy Demon is one of the singles on the mixtape It’s a bouncy song perfectly suited for the clubs with lyrics that bounce back-and-forth between a man and a woman talking about a sexual encounter. A music video for this single is coming soon.  

Other singles also featured on the mixtape are “That’s Crazy” – a “real smooth gangster kind of song” and “Explosion” – an R&B track made especially for the ladies. 

Ooday said after he returned home from prison, music was something he focused on as a way to turn his life around. The more he put out singles and the more he built a fanbase, the more the buzz grew about his sound and style. Today, he’s developed a signature style that accommodates a wide range of audiences. 

“I want my music to be known for music lasts,” Ooday said. “It’s not temporary. I want to make music that people listen to repetitively. When they come back to it, they still get that feeling they got when they first heard it. I want to make music that is timeless and sticks around. That’s why my name is Ooday. When people hear my music, they’re gonna say, ‘Oooh! There he is!’” 

All of Ooday’s music is released under the independent label No Equal Management, which also features a handful of other artists and producers from the Newburgh area. He said there is a lot of music soon to be dropped from that crew.

Lil Snook shares ‘Letters From The Midwest’ with hot new single 

SHAWNEE, OK – Tyler “Lil Snook” Johnson is a 22-year-old rapper from the Midwest whose unique blend of Hip Hop and Pop is the kind of sound that fans are going to want to start paying attention to.  

His newest single, “Letters From The Midwest,” is currently available across all streaming platforms and is already turning heads in its first two weeks of release. Exploring themes of lost love and rebuilding, the song is a great display of Lil Snook’s upbeat Hip Hop style. 

“It’s about trying to move on from the past and looking at the letters me and my ex used to write to each other,” he said. “It’s more upbeat and shows how I tend to write about a little bit of everything from my life. I write about anything I’ve been through or seen or am currently going through, or even things others are going through. Sometimes, like with this song, I draw from past relationships. There are just a lot of different things that inspire me. I also sing and rap and produce my own music – I do everything by myself from my home in my own studio.” 

Born and raised in Shawnee, Oklahoma, Lil Snook first became interested in creating music when he discovered Lil Wayne when he was 10 years old. That Hip Hop legend’s passion behind the lyrics was what caught Lil Snook’s attention.  

“You could tell he was in love with what he was doing and he was driven to do something to change people’s lives by rapping and making music to tell about their lives,” he said. “I caught that at a young age.” 

By 12, Lil Snook was writing his own stuff and experimenting with different sounds and styles. He’d perform for his family from time to time, and his aunt gave him the nickname Lil Snook after hearing him rap. 

“She thought my sound was old-school,” he said. “We’re from the South and she thought it sounded right from where we’re at. She said that it was a sound that was gonna be so different that it was gonna sneak in and be real popular. She started calling me Lil Snook and it just stuck.” 

Today, Lil Snook said he hopes to create music that will be long lasting legacy of others who have come before him. With two more albums set to drop in the next month as well as more singles that he’s preparing to release, he said he has an archive of music to share with the world. 

“I put out music a lot,” he said. “At least once every other week I’m putting something out. I’m trying to blow up real fast. I want my music to be popular and a lot of people to relate to it. I want to create something people like, but if they don’t like it – oh well, it’s still my music and I’m still gonna put it out there and a lot of people will still relate to it. I get a lot of passion in music and through music… it drives me to live every day and to write. And I want to share that with the world.”

TPTSpotlight – Stepped On

Industry Spotlight, ME Blog, Music, Promo

Spotlight shines on Lake City, SC with new mixtape ‘Trailer Park Thug’ 

LAKE CITY, SC – There’s a spotlight about to be shined on the small East Coast city of Lake City, South Carolina – on a trailer park, in fact. The spotlight will shine bright on new Hip Hop artist Eric Robinson whose slick YouTube music videos have already been gaining attention worldwide and whose new music is set to become the talk of the industry in upcoming weeks. 

Adopting the stage name TPTSpotlight (for Trailer Park Thug), this young rapper is set to drop a new mixtape called “Trailer Park Thug.” The debut single from that project, “Stepped On” is already available across all streaming platforms and has started gathering plays on YouTube for its video. Featuring TPTSpotlight’s brother Sdaii Slimey, the song is one of those hype songs that’s perfect for the summer. 

“It gets you turnt up,” TPTSpotlight said. “Like some sneakers, you can get stepped on – that’s basically what it’s about. I think it shows off the authenticity of my flow. I don’t sound like anyone else. I’m still rapping on most of it, and this song is really gonna pop.” 

TPTSpotlight said he wants to honor his hometown and the neighborhood where he grew up for more reasons than just the loyalty that comes from that close-knit community. The story behind how he and his brother reunited after more than a decade apart plays a part in his music. When their father was incarcerated for 10 years, the two of them were separated with Sdaii heading to Virginia and Spotlight going to live with his mother in Florida for a time. Sdaii’s mother was shot in the head down the street from their house and he ended up in the foster care system. When their father was released from prison, Spotlight found out from him that his brother was in Virginia, and the two reconnected. 

“It’s one of those small-town secrets, you know.” Spotlight said. “We’re from a small town – you can literally walk to anywhere from where we live. If we make it, it’ll be major. That’s why I wanted to add TPT to my name so that we can show the world what it’s like to be a trailer park thug. We’re looked at like underdogs, like we’re not gonna go anyplace. But we’re gonna show the world that’s not true.” 

The entire mixtape will showcase Spotlight’s hood – with stories and experiences from a life growing up in a trailer park. It will also continue the high-energy vibes of “Stepped On” with music that Spotlight promises will “make you snappin.”  

“When people hear my music, they’re gonna say, ‘That boy goes crazy on the beat!’” he said. “I want people to get up out of their seats when they hear my music. You can’t sit down when you listen to my music. You have to stand up, put a light on and do something when my music is on.”

Pastor K-ICE – My Spiritual Freak

Music, Videos

 South Florida minister educates people about love with new album ‘Sex, Money and Attitudes’ 

MIAMI, FL – Kenley La France – better known as Pastor K-Ice – is a man put on this earth to help people. This recording artist, speaker, author, sickle cell advocate, actor and certified life coach has a relentless passion to help society overcome its fundamental problems such as violence, hate, obsession with money and difficulty cultivating happy relationships. He addresses all of these issues and more with his latest book “Sex, Money and Attitudes” which he’s also making into an album. It’s part of his multi-phase plan to inspire people around the globe to have deeper, richer relationships. 

“I’m a life coach and love coach and relationship coach,” K-Ice said. “In addition to my book on Amazon, I’m also working on an audio book and I have a script for the movie and I’ll have the album and a podcast. My goal is to get a package deal for the entire project. The album will have skits that are inspired from the book and samples from the audio book. It’ll have some educational stuff in there, also. I was married when I started writing my book and I got interested in teaching people about relationships. I had a lot of girlfriends in the past and I’m married and I thought that I have a lot I could teach people about relationships. As I got deeper and deeper into teaching about it, I started exploring all kinds of things like spirituality and the benefits of deeper relationships. I believe that with everything going on in the world today, we need more love and more romantic love to help calm some stuff down that’s going on. It’s my mission to do that through the book and movie and music and podcast and everything. I’m not just an artist, I’m an educator.” 

The first single off the album is a song called “My Spiritual Freak.” It’s a love and romance song that could be played anywhere, K-Ice said – at a club, in the lounge, in a bedroom or even at a barbecue. As a minister who adheres to a higher calling, K-Ice said it’s often misrepresented that passion in the bedroom isn’t allowed. 

“Basically what I’m saying is that just because I’m freaky doesn’t mean I don’t believe in God,” he said. “My girl is a spiritual freak because she’s spiritual and she’s freaky.” 

The song is a blend of Pop and R&B for a vibe that is reminiscent of legendary artist Flow Rida. And though K-Ice describes himself as a rapper, it’s not the kind of hard-core rap that most people would associate with that genre. He has more of smooth sound that combines his ability to sing and rap.  

“At the end of the day, my music and everything I do, is about helping change lives,” he said. “That’s my whole mission. I want to touch lives and help people become better people. That’s my job. That’s what I’m on this earth for.”

RoyaltyPm – Spend It All

RoyaltyPm drops hot new EP Summer is Over’ 

CHARLOTTE, NC – Bryson Adams – better known by his stage name RoyaltyPm – has just dropped a hot new EP that sets the right kind of vibe to get fans all over the world through the last days of summer.  

Appropriately titled “Summer is Over,” this nine-track EP pairs melodic sounds with RoyaltyPm’s smooth voice for a radio-ready vibe that is sure to offer plenty of ear candy for listeners from a wide range of places. That’s because RoyaltyPms music explores a wide range of experiences from his life that are stories that connect with other people. 

“A lot of stuff I speak on includes struggles and issues with my everyday life,” he said. “The vibe I’m going for with most of the music I make is to paint a vivid picture with my lyrics while still remaining sonically pleasing. I just want to be transparent and honest as possible while giving people something they can gravitate to and listen to in any setting.” 

The debut single from the EP is a song called “Spend It All.” RoyaltyPm released the song earlier this year and has gotten rave reviews. The song explores the high-end trends of the world and the influence designers have on culture and behaviors. The music video for the song which was recently released on his YouTube channel, brings this idea to the forefront by having RoyaltyPm perform next to a Ferrari that’s parked in front of a heavily graffitied wall in Houston, Texas.  

“It’s really vibrant, which is what the song is supposed to be,” RoyaltyPm said. “Basically, I’m saying I’m into designer things and all the nicer things – like nice cars and clothes. It’s up-tempo and upbeat because we’re trying to push that high-end vibe, and people have been really gravitating to that sound.” 

RoyaltyPm describes his signature sound as a combination of three different styles. There’s his street sound and stories, then there’s his unique vocal abilities that takes listeners on a journey from low octaves to high, and then there’s his ability to rap. He takes the influences of his home in Charlotte, North Carolina as well as the influences from nearby Atlanta, and then adds his own signature sound to the mix for a truly one-of-a-kind offering of new music. 

“There are people who rap but don’t sing good, or people who sing good but don’t rap good, or who rap good and sing good but don’t have anything real to say,” RoyaltyPm said. “I do all three. I’m eager for people to hear my music because they’ll get to a point where they know what to expect from me. My music is about creating a certain vibe. When you go somewhere – a party or whatever – I want to be the first guy you put on because I’m gonna set the tone. I want people to recall me without me having to put it in their faces… to remember my sound and to remember that I’m somebody they can relate to.”

Musician, singer and songwriter, Abideen “Abblaze” Omisola adds an extraordinary international flavor to the music coming out of the East Coast. His unique Afrobeats music, an uptempo, playful blend with percussion-heavy rhythm and American lifestyle influences, appeals to music listeners around the world. Abblaze is poised to light up everyone’s weekend with the launch of his new weekly program, “Blazing Fridays.” 

To build excitement and serve his fanbaseAbblaze will be dropping a new song on Friday of every week as the perfect way to jumpstart the weekend. He kicked off the new project last Friday with a video along with new music. His fans, known as The Blazers, were treated to a new music video for “High Life” (a single from his latest EP, “Rhythms & Heartbreaks”) along with a brand new track, “At Last.” 

The artist has committed to releasing new music weekly and will use SoundCloud for the first two installments. After another single follows “At Last” on SoundCloud, the remaining singles will be dropped on all the major digital platforms. 

“At Last” was written as motivation to move from where you are. No matter what the situation is now, things can always change. “The money and the situation right now…? Things change. Back then, I was nobody,” Abblaze said. “Because I put in the work, I started realizing and discovering myself. With time and hard work, things started to change. Things started to look great again!” The song was written specifically to inspire new young artists. 

“Blazing Fridays” follows the release of Abblaze’s 9-track heartbreak and love songs EP, “Rhythms & Heartbreaks” from earlier this year. While working on the EP, Abblaze focused on one main idea for all the tracks. “On the EP, no matter what song I wanted to make, I had to make sure it came around the circle of the topic I was trying to get across to people,” he said. “Blazing Fridays” showcases a new dimension of his work. Releasing a series of singles gives the artist greater freedom to explore his songwriting and each new track promises to be different and dope in its own way. 

Abblaze has been creating Afrobeat rhythms with a unique American flavor and worldwide appeal. He has been dropping EPs and he knows that he can complete a major project. Right now, he is switching to weekly single releases to create an intense buzz for the coming months.
