Tafari Anthony's new single "To The End" was created according to him for anyone pushing to accomplish their dream while working through their own self-sabotage.
"Over the course of my childhood and adolescence, I realized I was gay. I felt pressured by my family and the industry to accept that I would have to become what was expected of a young black man. With the expectation of fitting into the status quo, I focused on a more urban R&B sound, where I began to find some local success.
However, that success came at a price and I found out quickly that hiding my true self from those I loved was taking its toll on my personal life and inevitably my music. I found some relief when I started to meet writers and producers who didn't feel the need to force me into one specific genre but instead encouraged me to discover and explore many forms of musical expression. It was during this time I started to become more comfortable with myself musically, which ultimately lead to becoming more confident in my personal life.
I attribute my recent accomplishments to overcoming those expectations placed upon me by others and I’m grateful for those who helped support me to find the courage and confidence to live honestly with my convictions."
"TRE is a music composer and producer from India. He has a very chilled vibe to his tracks with some fresh new sounds to his electronic music work. The music created by TRE has a great composition value with his chilled melody tunes and sweet Bongo work. This perfectly gives a great summer vibe to his tunes. He recently remixed an official track with Texas Pop/Rock band "January May" for the track "The Road". He is definitely on his way to create more new sounds with his electronic project TRE."
Grej is the solo project and performing pseudonym of Greg Harrison, a Canadian-based percussionist from Fredericton, NB. This is Grej's first single and video “Part 3” of the new album i/Variations. The video was choreographed /performed with dancer Mateo Galindo Torres with artist Carlos Delgado. It explores the process of expressing and absorbing rebellious actions. The work is built from traditional Colombian folk songs, which cater to the perpetual rhythmic layers. This eventually gets swallowed by waves of synth and bowed metal objects - the thematic motif of the album. The album is a four part project where each musical work navigates through a physical and emotive journey that features manipulated cymbals and a Roland Juno synthesizer.
This self-produced EP is the first work by Go Ask Alice: eight instrumental tracks, composed between 2012 and 2013, recorded and mixed by Matteo Spinazzé, in collaboration with Curzio Ferri playing drums and Andrea Oggiano with his acoustic guitar. Perfection is terrible is the first verse of Sylvia Plath's poem "The Munich Mannequins". "Perfection" here is completeness, closure, inability to evolve and reborn, perfection is death. Perfection is indeed terrible, can't have a child, just as Plath's Munich Mannequins, cold marble statues, beautiful and perfect, frozen with us in a never ending present, the immense futureless present of the "capitalist realism": the end of history.
