With a seductive sensual melody this one will surely help raise the awareness of maintaining and building serious relationships with whose in your inner circle. A long-time friend interceding for his best friend interest; yet offering his love. Shallow relationships can only go so far. To love the one you’re with, takes commitment beyond physical attraction. There is no reason to be caught up in a three-way entanglement. Healthy, non-toxic relationships is what we all need.  

There’s a thin line of what true love is. To become emotionally charged in someone else’s love affairs is not a wise choice. But, to be their support partner with sound practical advice without being physical is a wise thing to do. PleasureMore approach through music is to help build healthy and meaningful relationships without toxic drama. Can you love the one you’re with; without having another lover on the side? “Love is kind, does not envy, does not parade itself, is not puffed, does not behave rudely, or seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil, does not rejoice in sin, but rejoices in the truth; bear all things, believe all things, hope all things, endure all things, Love never fails.” I Corinthians 13 4:4-8a.

PleasureMore latest single “I Can’t Tell Ya” is a song of friendship, honesty, and total commitment with the one you are currently with and making your relationship work. It is through the power of music, love and hope that makes the world go round. Continue to listen, laugh, love, and live your life to its fullest. Though, I Can’t Tell Ya, how to run your life.

The new single ‘Alive’ from ‘Giles’ with it’s excellent classy and sleek production, soulful voice and big beats is on the Hollywood FM digital playlist now

The head of music for said he loved the new single ‘Alive’ from ‘Giles’ with it’s excellent classy and sleek production, soulful voice and big beats that keep you grooving all the way through to the end. The single is now on the daily playlist.

Few doubt the talents of Alvin Giles. He is an accomplished producer, audio engineer, arranger, composer, multi-instrumentalist, and songwriter. After a ten-year hiatus, and under a new moniker; Giles, formally known as Vthov, makes his return as a musical artist.

Blending genres like a pro, Giles fuses hip hop, r&b, and soul with a myriad of intriguing elements from other genres. While his resume proves he can perfect any style, he returns to his hip hop roots for “Alive.”

“I’m reintroducing the world to me as an artist and feel that ‘Alive’ perfectly encapsulates what I have to offer,” said Giles.

“While seeing my contemporaries’ careers grow, it felt like my career as a rapper was dead. I needed a reboot,” he said. “‘Alive’ is first, a message to me. I’m letting myself know that I am standing on the shoulders of giants and have what it takes. I can overcome adversity.”

But after ten years, can Giles get back in the game as a contender?

While the world is coming out of a long pandemic, Giles’s return could not be timelier – and he delivers. “We’ve all suffered,” he said. “This pandemic is the first time in modernity that the human race can unite under the shared title of survivor.”

Back Rank Records will drop the single on March 11th, along with a lyric video on streaming platforms. Giles is the CEO and founder of Back Rank Records.

“Alive” begins with a soulful keyboard and is transformed into a big synth anthem. Giles takes listeners on a trip over the decades to create a timeless classic. Giles combines soulful vibes and hip-hop elements to create “Alive.” From the energetic big synth hook to the verse that flows with groovy 70s keyboard licks, the bass drum is the track’s heartbeat. When you think the song cannot get any better, Giles throws in some rock power chords for good measure making the hook explode with energy.

“My hip hop seeks musicality via instrumentation, chord progressions, and basslines,” explained Giles. “I write songs with rich melodies and harmonies as the framework.”

Sonically Giles’ style stands out, but there is more to his music – a deep meaning resonates in “Alive.”

“There’s so much clout and swag rapping, but for me, there is so much more that hip hop can bring instead of just talking shit. My music is introspective and self-reflecting. I dive deeper than just material possession and machismo,” said Giles.

Born and raised in Orlando, Giles’s mission is to bring music to the people. He hits all the marks with “Alive” that exceeds its lyrical context and propels him back into the industry as a performer to watch.

“‘Alive’ is very relevant for the times we are living in. It’s an anthem for people who feel they need a win,” said Giles. “When you hear the chorus, you’ll want to get back in the game, and get that W.”

While Giles plans to release more singles in the future, listeners love the 3:33 minutes of “Alive.”

“This song is for people who have suffered, which is all of us,” he said. “Hopefully, ‘Alive’ can reach the underdogs of the world and put a little wind in their sails.”

Make sure to stay connected to Giles on all platforms for new music, videos, and social posts.

After Graduating from the renowned Musicians Institute in the heart of Hollywood, ‘Shabam’ releases new single “Sleepless Nights”

Born and brought up in India, Shabam moved to Los Angeles three years ago to pursue his dreams of becoming a singer-songwriter. Graduated from the renowned Musicians Institute in the heart of Hollywood, he released his first single in October 2020 which got more than half a million streams on streaming platforms, not only that but he was also featured in various known blogs/websites.

His second single “Sleepless Nights” came out on January 28 which is already doing great on streaming platforms and also received attention from International media publications like India Today, Mid-day, Eastern Eye and many more. The song talks about two people where one person is trying to help the other person who is kinda in a place to see what’s on the other side of the tunnel. We often tend to give up when things get hard, we never want to leave our comfort zone and hence giving up always seem to the be the easy option. He also adds that “it was merely a story in my head initially and it wasn’t something that had happened in reality. This year while I was in the process of recording with my producer, he was just going through the song and he realized that what

I had written about a year ago was actually happening in reality in my life. I know it sounds crazy but that’s how music works. All of a sudden the song became really personal and I was able to relate to the song like never before”.

He talks a little about himself saying that “If I am being completely honest, my journey hasn’t been the easiest, although I also can’t deny that if certain things hadn’t happened, I wouldn’t be the person I am today. I remember working hard for every single thing I wanted in my life, that’s how I was
raised by my parents. I am lucky they instilled these things in me.

I remember my Dad would always talk about things like never compromising when it comes to your self-respect, dignity etc. He always told me that he wanted only one thing from me and that was being a good human being, he always believed that if you could do that, you have won half the race and he wasn’t wrong. After I moved to Mumbai to complete my graduation, there were certain people who didn’t like the way I was progressing towards my goals. You’ll always meet such people in your life, in that moment you think why is the whole world against you? Why isn’t anything going your way? Is this how it feels like to follow your dreams? This is the test all of us have to pass.

This is where I had to apply everything I was taught by my parents. I was always big on self-belief, even on the bad days I never stopped believing in myself. I consider myself lucky that I was able to go through these experiences because they made me stronger as a human being and gave me a completely different perspective towards life. I guess that’s the reason I was able to reach where I am today.
