Artist Jahbrae has embraced the anger and despair he felt witnessing violence targeting People of Color, in his EP ‘The Black Lives Matter Collection’
With a Cape Verdean Heritage and a SoCal Uncensored upbringing, musical artist Jahbrae never genuinely fit in. That lack of tribal identity mirrors a musical sound that draws on making genre-bending music that uniquely stands out.
When creating music or writing lyrics, each verse’s highest intention is to help others feel that they are not alone. Carrying this same versatile approach into a mixture of soulful deliveries coupled with a poetic cadence Jahbrae, 25, challenges every genre to innovate or get left behind. Writing has always been a way Jahbrae expressed himself, but it wasn’t until he stopped hiding his raw emotions on every song that the industry took a closer look at this rising artist.

Megan L. Divine is a singer-songwriter based in New Mexico.
The song ‘Heart On Her Sleeve’ is about a woman being vulnerable and always being unconditional. It refers to a popular phrase meaning she is always giving all her love and always running back to her partner because no matter what they go through she loves him too much to ever leave him. The phrase “she wears her heart on her sleeve” is referred to in the song as saying she’s always vulnerable in her relationships.
It concludes her putting herself out there because she has a big heart and because she learned in life to never give up on people.. she’ll never give up on the people she loves even if they’re breaking her heart.. she still loves with her whole heart even when it feels broken and sometimes she wants the same love she gives in return..
“If you really love someone you give it everything you have and love with your whole heart genuinely and sometimes you don’t care if you get the same in return because you love them so much and it doesn’t seem like a big deal.. “ says Megan

DJ and Producer Eduke has already made a name for himself as one of the top 30 Tech House artist in 2020 and 2021 according to Beatstats.com. Eduke did not start making dance music until 2013, even though he has been producing and writing for over 20 years. Prior to 2013 he made commercial pop music and wrote acoustic ballads which many in the underground dance scene shy away from. It was not until he lost his mother from a battle with Cancer that Eduke decided to pivot into House music, Tech house and Techno with a little stint in Edm.
When asked what was it about the loss of his mother that inspired him to start making House music, he said “After I lost my mother to Cancer, I didn’t want to make or listen to sad music any more. Dance music to me was the perfect alternative. In fact, I started producing dance tracks on my lap-top as a way to deal with the pain of watching a loved one wither and die. Producing uplifting, high energy tracks was my distraction. It took me to a place away from the gloom and hopelessness”.
The name Eduke is an African name borrowed from his mother after her passing on May 14th 2014. The artist decided to use the name as a way to pay respect to someone whom he says “sacrificed her entire life for her Faith and her children”.
Eduke says his need to spin music was the result of fate and survival. The music literally saved him in one of his darkest hours. In 2015 Eduke joined UK’s Concrete promo LTD as the exclusive promo company for his releases following the example of House music icons like David Penn and a slew of others. Via concrete promo the artist has released ground breaking records making waves across the globe and garnering the support of icons like Claptone, Benny Benassi, David Guetta, Roger Sanchez, Richie Hawtin, Don Diablo, Dash Berlin just to name a few. His “The Wished EP” reached #2 on the Music Week dance chart and #9 on the commercial charts. More than 4 years after, “The Wished EP” (March 2021) charted on Apple music at #13 of House Albums albums in China following some features from the EP on the Chinese fantasy comedy Wished (2017) by Award winning movie director Dayyan Eng. His releases have been regulars on the Beatport, Apple Music and Traxsource top 100 charts. In 2020 Eduke released some of the best selling tracks on Beatport. His track “One House” was ranked among the top 10 Best Selling tracks of 2020.
Still in the first quarter of 2021, Eduke just released the island inspired Tech House banger “Lucea” on the Juicy music label run by Robbie Rivera. One week in, Lucea has charted on the Best of Tech House, Mixtank, the weekly digs, Beatport Weekend Picks and Peak Hour tracks of 2021.
It is an incredible time for Eduke as DJs and Fans are really loving his sound across the globe, from Ibiza to London, Berlin to Sydney, Amsterdam to Miami, Paris to Johannesburg there’s so much love growing for his music.
