Many of us fantasize over living a life that we have always desired. On her new single "Presidential," off of her upcoming EP "Gold Decisions," Cakes does just that. She paints a vivid picture for the world to see that if you want it, you have got to go get it. Steering clear of drama, focusing on your money, and taking charge are indications of what being Presidential is all about. "Presidential" video coming soon.

Cakes is more than just your typical female artist with an alluring look. She’s notably one of the most versatile rappers/songstress coming from Virginia, with a manner that is delivering a breath of fresh air to many genres in the music scene. Her rebel style can be heard through her songs such as “Who Gon Check Me”, “Vibez”, and her reputable party anthem, “My Section.” Throughout her music, Cakes conveys her struggles with growing up as a woman consumed in a man’s world; in turn, giving strength and encouragement to women worldwide.

New single - Bakkah: The History of Humankind by Emay

2016-10-29 22:46:06 UTC

Emay

This new song "Bakkah: The History of Humankind", was initially just a poem about humanity as a whole. When it began to rhyme Emay basically just ran with it. It was also a great opportunity for him to experiment with his writing as he was always self-conscious about using a more poetic/metaphorical style of writing so with this track Ihe allowed myself to get completely lost in that form.

For the video, him and the director, Aaron Hall, bounced a lot of ideas off of each other and eventually Aaron thought of using riot gear for the video. The video is a battle displaying Emay's ideological development and the conflict of ideas taking over and building off of one another.


Genre : experimental, hip-hop, hip-hop/rap, indie, instrumental, rap, downtempo

Escuri has been actively producing and performing experimental music in the Philippines.  He released several EP which include Parallel Worlds (2013), a compilation of avant-garde analog sound works which took inspiration from the literary works of Haruki Murakami and Kobo Abe; Coloring Book (2015), a collection of purely digital audio works; and ORBIT21 (2016), a collaborative sound work with music producers from California, UK, Texas, Netherlands and London.  

His musical works has been featured in local radio stations and publication. His current musical project involves performing electronic music in various settings (public, semi-public and private spaces) in an attempt to explore how these physical spaces contribute to and/or affect sound and performance. In addition, the project also explores how synthetic sounds interact with natural sounds and how this interaction affect the binaural perception of the listeners . Other on-going projects include field recordings with visual artists .

He is part of Pixel Collective, a local group of emerging digital/electronic/analog/lo-fi musicians; and Buwan Buwan Collective, a record label dedicated to unearthing substantial electronic art forms. 

A collaboration Purveyr and adidas Originals.

Around August 2016, they roamed around the streets of Escolta, Philippines and did a soundwalk.

This opportunity paved way in exploring field recordings. In the process, they recorded ambient sounds and collaborated with the locals by asking them to do rhythmic beats using familiar objects (coins, hammer, basketball and even coffee machine!)

Like photography, music also has the power to capture a moment, make it eternal and deliver euphoria and nostalgic memories.

Review for the new EP "I Wanna Be Exploited" by Tommy Red

A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit. The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
