Showing how it should be done: Kelvin D’artegnan drops top shelf Hip Hop single ‘Gimme Dat’

Kelvin D’artegnan is back with his undeniable quality on the passion-filled Hip Hop laced single ‘Gimme Dat‘.

After being forever-inspired by his father playing old school Hip Hop records in the house while growing up, that true love for proper music was firmly entrenched, deep inside his body and has stayed there ever since. The experienced podcaster, producer, composer and emcee was born in Warner Robins, Georgia and grew up in Prattville, Alabama where his passion for performing live only blossomed from there.

Right now, he is worldwide where his music is only growing day by day as he took time to build the foundations, and that core is so strong, he feels like he can only go upwards and never look back.

After dealing with multiple losses of his recorded music due to hard-drive issues, he never gave up and is now flourishing whilst doing what he loves. When you listen to him rap, you can feel the true realness and passion of a man that is a deep soul who respects the old school feel of a magnificent genre, that has sadly been watered down by so many narrow-minded rappers. Thankfully, he shows us what that true Hip Hop should sound like and lays down a barrage of clever lyrics and a busty bass production that will have you sweating in delight.

He feels like he has made it and now the next step is here. While so many others only want and won’t give, this story of being humble and working hard is a great example to the kids out there. With so many fake role models that flash in the pan and are soon washed down the drain due to their obvious shortcomings, this is an emcee who raps with skills that are due to many hours of perfecting them, when the days might of seemed dark but now the lights are on so bright, you will need UV-tinted sunglasses to fully enjoy this music.

Gimme Dat‘ from the multi-skilled Kelvin D’artegnan shows us that if you want it bad enough, you will go to great lengths to achieve your goals. Keeping it real to those you care about and meet in life, is the only way forward in this wild world.

Atlanta R&B singer Diamonn shows us her incredible vocal ability on ‘Blame Me’

Atlanta R&B singer Diamonn shows us her incredible vocal ability on ‘Blame Me‘ and this is such a strong effort from a musician with substance. She certainly delivers on this new single and we need to all take notice.

A recently enrolled student at the prestigious Berklee College of Music, you get the feeling that this young artist is just getting started. She has that quiet confidence which has to be admired. This is a well-brought up young lady, she has class and is creative, her strength is clear to see. She wasn’t accepted at Berklee last year so what did she do? Give up and blame everyone? No, she applied again and won. That is called backing yourself.

You blame yourself for what has happened and are taking the time to have a think about everything. They have a hold over you and you blame yourself for catching feelings, you couldn’t help it. You are now going to be stronger and wiser from this experience.

Blame Me‘ from Diamonn is a bright song, full of fantastic visuals and she shows the world that this is an artist who is here to stay. The Atlanta singer is a shining light in a dark year for the world.

Head down the rabbit hole with Winter Rae’s new Alt Electropop single “One of Us”

Atlanta-based Pop artist Winter Rae has invited you down the rabbit hole with her latest single “One of Us”. With a touch of archaic experimentalism within the infectiously fresh Alt Electropop mix, you can’t help but be immersed in the ingenuity which boasts quaint nuances of cabaret. Yet, One of Us stands as one of the most stylistic Pop drops of 2020.

“Fuck you but have a good day” may just be my new favourite lyric of all time. Winter Rae’s sound exceeds expectation on every single level. The authenticity, the alluring vocal timbre, the witty sass-dripping attitude in the lyrics, the commitment to ensuring that a song like One of Us has never been on the airwaves before, it’s all there. Watch this space.

You can check out One of Us on all major streaming platforms via this link.

Georgia’s John Omen is brilliant on ‘Changing History’

Changing History‘ from John Omen is a reflective piece from the Atlanta singer-songwriter who’s voice transcends this new single.

John Omen is a songwriter & poet from Atlanta in gorgeous Georgia. John’s diverse musical background has seen him work on a variety of songs from Metal & Industrial to Spoken Word & Rock. His contemplative musings dive into the depths of the human psyche while exploring sonic realms ranging from folk & bluegrass to neo soul & ethereal atmospherics. With his latest full-length release ‘Changing History‘, John takes us on a meditative journey that transcends musical & philosophical boundaries.

Despite the diversity of his sound, there’s an esoteric thread that runs through all of John Omen’s work. With the full album called ‘Changing History’, he ties his diverse influences together in historic new ways.

The self tilted single from the album, ‘Changing History‘, is a wonderful indie-folk song from the fantastic John Omen and he sings so powerfully on this new track. You can hear in his voice that he is an absolute pro and his guitar skills leave one knowing that a true master is at work here. You can’t changing history so making your own mark is of the utmost importance.

‘Hurricane Bride’ from Lyn Avenue is a story of a wedding that was like no other

Lyn Avenue gets us dancing with their brand new story here with their country song called ‘Hurricane Bride‘.

Imagine having your wedding on a hurricane-filled day? This is the starting point from this quality duo from Savannah, Georgia. The stupendous vocal ability is for all to see from Cc and the guitar output from Patrick morphs this act into a high level.

I love the story of a wedding that turned into something movie-like. You are about to get married and then a hurricane hits. What is left to do? Drinking moonshine and dancing the night way for one. The country-fused indie style is a pleasure to listen to and I find myself getting lost in the music.

Hurricane Bride‘ from Lyn Avenue is an abundance of joy from a sad situation. This is the best way to deal with any issues. Take the positive spin from the tracks and spin them to your way.

PANDDA & Young Drumma join forces for Hip Hop and R&B laced ”Emotions”

PANDDA was born in Fayetteville, Georgia. He now calls his Orlando his home. and has moved up to near the top of the Hip Hop ranks. I like how he wants to take out the materialism in the music game and this effort must be appreciated.

The song is well-produced and I like the feature from Young Drumma as he spits truth bombs on this one that deserves our eyes and ears. This lyrical ability from PANDDA is very easy to see and he rhymes about real like stories. Life is emotional so we need to keep out cool when the pressure is at it’s highest.

Emotions” is a tight track and these two make a good team. This could be the call for a new sound in the world as we move past what was old and slide in the new future music stars. A new dawn is here.

Head to Soundcloud to hear more from this Hip Hop team.
