Out Of Drugs by KelsyKarter

This track is lyrically so much on point and nails the current, modern destabilized relationship status of modern society so much. The way Kelsey comes across is as somewhere between Lana Del Rey and a grande dame of 60s music. The entire retro sound design feels like a window to the the past where we get to witness time travelling Amy Winehouse meeting with Lana Del Rey and they trying to recreate a Nancy Sinatra song. Well done Kelsey!

Deep End by ShelBee 

I heard this tune the very first time a few weeks ago and instantly liked it, not only bc of it’s sparse use of instrumentation but mostly bc of Shel Bees phrasing, intonation and the way she delivers the top lines. A seriously good singer in the making, with an honest voice that needs more attention on the streaming world of today. That’s why i sent it off to our team to work and release the track. While i am currently on vacation i think the signing is on the way and we can look at pitching it properly when the summers over and all the streaming offices and bureaus are all back to business as usual. Won’t be earlier than mid to late September sadly, but no worries, a good solid tune takes longer to grow these days. And even longer for an artist to finally break into the mainstream. Consistency is key in releases, and if one or two do not work make sure to keep on keeping on. I am writing this well in mind that Shel Bee might read this, so i just want to encourage young striving acts to maintain the course and not get discouraged if things do not shape up instantly as one would wish. In the long run, they will.

There’s an old Chinese proverb that says : “If you wanna go fast, go alone. But if you wish to go far, go together.” And that’s how is see our relation with this young talent!

Ps i heard one of our most talented young cats, Wolfskind, will be working with you in October in LA. So we went full circle w/o knowing that this would happen, and that it would all stay in the family. Wolfskind aka Lucas is a key producer in our deal with Universal Music and sincerely my adopted son (musically), whom you will have lots of fun with ;)

Finish Last by Brothers Prince

Hell of a love song, with a sweet mellow hip hop feel. Thx for the vibes Brothers Prince.

Here’s what they wrote in their Press Kit:

Brothers Prince has been bringing their indie-soul-hop sound to the Bay Area since March 2016 and have sold out shows at the Ivy Room, The Starry Plough, and The Legionnaire. With thoughtful lyrics that invite reflection and a feel-good vibe, the music will bring you to your feet. From 4-part harmonies to front men Ambrose and Austin dancing in the crowd, the 7-member band brings listeners into the experience. Influenced by artists like Lauryn Hill, J. Cole, and Alabama Shakes the sound is a varied yet cohesive mix of mellow soul, indie grit, and evocative rap. The sheer number of people in the band is a nod to the group’s community-oriented mindset. Whether at a barbeque, in the car, or at a live performance, Brothers Prince music is meant to be experienced with other people.

Skin Collection by Lara Antebi (Full Album)

Just hanging out on holiday and this sweet album came across. Lara dropped us a line, for her awesome track “Voodoo Doll” but i think her entire album deserves some attention. Voodoo Doll is my favorite after many a listens, but still her work needs to be listened and appreciated as a whole or holistically ;)

I think many can get with this, after everything these days is music, cut down, designed and portioned as fast food for easier and faster digestion. Lara makes honest and real music and that is something i came to appreciate a lot after even more things become, not only politically and in the media, an echo chamber, but even in music, which i think is even worse. So i salute this sweet artist and here sincere album. Welcome Lara Antebi ::: :::  :::  :::
