Anthony Levone’s latest single, Peacekeepers, featuring Fooly23, is for everyone that has been cognitively wrapped up in the senseless brutality of our contemporary existence a little too much lately. And when I say everyone, that is especially in reference to genre preference. The articulate nature of Levone’s lyricism means that the smooth sonic old school and sun-bleached hip hop instrumentals fall by the wayside as his bars pull parables from religious icons to prove that we’ve scarcely moved on in terms of civility.
The West Palm Beach-hailing artist has been releasing music since 2019, in that time, he’s developed a staunch fan base with his J.Cole, Nas & Common reminiscences. He’s also been in heavy rotation on international radio stations and landed a plethora of coveted playlist placements. Yet, judging by the socially-minded tenacity in Peacekeepers, it is safe to say that none of his philosophical work will ever be over-amplified.
The lyric video for Peacekeepers premiered on April 22nd; it is now available to stream on YouTube.
With a uniquely different style that has you looking deeper into her sensitively strong soul, Miliah knows that she can mostly save herself from all the love-torn hurt and childish games from selfish former lovers, with the breathtaking story about falling down sometimes on ‘Common‘.
Miliah is a St. Petersburg, Russia-based music producer, and indie singer-songwriter. Influenced by various genres such as electronic, RnB, neo-soul and hip-hop, she blends a magnificently fascinating mixture of pure music vibrations for our hungry ears, that is rather intoxicating.
As she sings with such a vivid style that opens the curtain inside her life that has made her so strong, her willingness to do something special really sets her apart. Criminally underrated, you feel her pulsating passion and desire to do things her way, but does need to be caught every now and again, when she does stray too far down under.
‘Common‘ from the stylishly elegant and highly talented Russian music producer and neo-soul singer Miliah, shows us a woman who knows that she needs help sometimes, but only wants to be with a soul who truly believes in her. After way too many falls and heartbreaks – she is so determined to rise over the small-mindedness – to find her destined path that she has earned through hard work. She is not like the rest and is totally okay with that. Only the brave shall survive anyway.

Even with the amount of new music being made every day, with sheer weight of collective imaginations, the genre splicing experiments, the fusing and fusion of styles Garrison Carver seems to be on to something new here. Yes, there is a trippy trap beat, a cool R&B vibe and a rap delivery but that is then cocooned in something totally unexpected. Around these more expected elements he wraps a dream-pop haze, chilled psychedelia and electronic washes.
It’s confusing, but experience tells us that is a good thing, expectations are made to be subverted, rules are made to be broken and new musical horizons are their to be explored and DD does all of those things and more. Blissed out hip-hop? Ethereal R&B? Dream-rap? Are those even a thing? The fact that you have to invent whole new genres to put the music in is an indication of just how original this music is and how singular and lateral Garrison Carver’s thinking is.
Shaded Profit dropped his new track I’m Coming Home just 10 days ago. This Hip Hop & Rap was well influenced by his home town on the Bronx. He’s no Baller attempting to adopt some grandiose Gin and Juice persona. No, the talented solo artists music is influenced by his awkward experiences as a child as he struggled with his self-proclaimed Nerd persona. To be honest it was just nice to hear a rap artist that had respect for women.
To put it lightly Shaded Profit is adorable and so is his sound which mixes contemporary pop with lyrics that are actually a pleasure to listen to that offer endless introspective poetry. I’m Coming Home is dedicated to the men and women in the Armed Forces, it’s probably the best Hip Hop track of it’s genre since Eminem brought out Toy Soldiers. He takes a tragic subject and puts his lyrics against a traditional upbeat Hip Hop track that take away the gravity of emotion and just immerses you in the music.
