‘Checking In’ by Abi Mia was inspired by her regular Zoom chats with her Grandfather during a time when connecting with family and friends is important

Abi Mia’s next single ‘Checking In’ is being released on April 30th and was inspired by her almost daily Zoom chats that she has been enjoying with her 93-year-old grandpa over the past year; something which has become more poignant as time goes on.

‘I wrote it from the perspective of talking to him so it has an intimate, comforting feel to it and the message of the song it is to check in with friends and family on a regular basis even if they seem ok, as you never know when someone may be struggling, just need a chat or feel connected with other people. Recent times have made this more prevalent but it has always been very important to me.’ says Abi Mia

Abi Mia is an independent singer/songwriter from London, UK. Abi Mia writes her original songs from the heart – always inspired by her experiences and things happening in the world. She also finds it essential to get that emotion across in her performance so she can connect with the audience, something that is reflected in her lyrics.

Hip-Hop fusion band tackles the social and political issues behind what separates us!

Raw, passionate, and real. These are just a few terms that could best describe Subconscious Culture. Born from the mind of Erin Miller, Subconscious Culture aims to target and address the issues behind what affects our society for the better and for the worse. The lyrics: unrelenting. The music: skillfully crafted. With songs co-produced by Paul Paresa, this band is dedicated to delivering an organic experience, unadulterated by anything artificial or over-edited. Hot on the heels of the recent singles, “Still Moments”, “Paper Thin”, and “Almost Love” comes a new EP, “What Separates Us” which is available on May 24, 2021. The new EP features lush soundscapes and tight grooves aided by horns, strings, and the usual suspects. “What Separates Us” is provided in collaboration with Matt Brewster, Salvatore Manalo, Laryssa Birdseye, Sarah Wild, RxN, DTW, and more!

“What Separates Us” is ultimately a round-trip journey within; a story told in 7 parts.
It will sweep you into a place of bohemian bliss, tethered by alternative soundscapes that are rooted in hip-hop. As the EP progresses, it’ll transport you to smoother pastures laden with jazz and soul influence. The return trip once again embraces bohemian ideals that are ripe with harmony and rich brass. The journey finally culminates with a thought-provoking intensity that can be best described as authentically raw.

Subconscious Culture is ever evolving with its members and genres that are blended with hip-hop. While the first full-length album, “Philosophy Unraveled” featured rock and funk influences, the first EP, “What Separates Us” relies more heavily on jazz tones. In many ways, “What Separates Us” is the first of a two-part release. The followup EP, “What Unifies Us” will close the circle of the duality surrounding human nature. It will be focused on what brings us together, while drawing inspiration from funk and soul. Regardless of the release, listeners should be prepared for intensity and to think, analyze, and interpret.

Mr White Dogg and his fleet of cars are unstoppable, so turn the volume up and enjoy the vibe of his latest single “Picture me Rollin”

When Mr. White Dogg went away to a Federal lockup six years ago, everything went on hold and a new life emerged. Now he’s been out two years to the day and he’s the CEO of White Dogg motors.
Depending on the day of the week you may see an S-Class Mercedes, a Maserati, a Suburban, E-Class Mercedes, Multiple Chevy Tahoes or maybe a dependable Honda, depends on how he’s feeling.

Whatever the choice in car is for the day, his new release “Picture me rollin” (out on all platforms) is surely a fitting title. If you’re going to manifest new cars and money into existence then crank the volume up on this song and picture yourself rollin thru CA on a hot day with music turned all the way up, or if you’re already rollin’ and have everything going your way, you can turn the volume up and cheers yourself. Definitely a great vibe for all.

From the “The West Coast Offense” album re-release, Independent Artists “Independent rap duo ‘Cohorts’ overcomes Coronavirus lockdown by re-releasing an album”.

Cohorts has rearranged, remixed, and remastered their previously released album “The West Coast Offense.” The idea for this was sparked after an unfortunate hard drive crash, which resulted in this version having less songs than the original. A crashed hard drive, and a pandemic lockdown doesn’t have to be all bad, evidenced by this artistic endeavor. Cohorts’ musical projects are all geared towards the grown and sexy crowd, and are all produced by Kartuush. Parental Advisory label is required. RawNaked Entertainment is the label that releases these offerings. “The West Coast Offense” was originally released back in 2011. The re-release version will be available soon.

Banded Future is an American hip hop duo and have just released their new single ‘Good Day’

Banded Future is an American hip hop duo formed in 2021 in Los Angeles, California, consisting of rappers/singers Zap Rath and Jericho Law. In addition to their intricate lyrics, catchy melodies, and positive messages, the duo is best known for their musical abilities as both members play over a dozen musical instruments. The name Banded Future has several meanings. It projects the ideal of a more unified world. But, it also refers to bringing back the “band” or musicality to a very electronic and automated music industry. The name also refers to the duo earning their “bands” or stripes as successful veterans in the entertainment industry.

If there’s one word to describe this group, it’s “different.” They break all the rules and don’t think twice about it. They will mix genres, dress in costumes, address social issues, reach across generational gaps, and produce unconventional content. Banded Future is about more than music, and this isn’t another group trying to create an audience; instead they are creating a community. They want their fans to be involved and inspired by their mission. The goal is for their music to be a springboard for positively impacting the lives of their listeners.

Banded Future’s new single “Good Day” once again highlights their talents as they play every instrument on the track and literally form choirs of melodies just between the two of them. If that wasn’t enough, the song has a familiar catchiness that will instantly remind listeners of Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off,” or Andre 3000’s “Hey Yah.” Banded Future, however, remains true to their depth with Good Day taking us where hip hop rarely goes. The song actually addresses mental health issues, and the infectious chorus is really a faith-filled mantra. A stark contrast from their debut single “We Don’t Care,” this song is “fun music” that is more in line with the nature of the group. All it takes is one listen, and “Good Day” will have you hooked!
