Rising New York artist MEMBA returns with an incredibly unique single “NY -> LA” which features standout vocal accompaniment from Alex Mali. MEMBA has seen rapid growth recently, having remixed Emmit Fenn’s “Painting Greys” and dropping his collaborative single “Pull Up”. This most recent offering “NY -> LA” is a hard hitting trap-influenced release that showcases MEMBA’s intricate production.
The song captures a unique vibe right away with head-nodding production combined with Alex Mali laying down some fire. The song breaks down with sharp synths and minimal percussion, which eventually leads listeners into a bass heavy drop with contagious vocal chops. MEMBA continues to impress more and more every release, and “NY -> LA” is sure fire. Enjoy!
Chance The Rapper is one of the most unique artists in the world. He’s has an unlikely rise to fame and has maintained a massive level of stardom while staying true to himself and independent. While it seems everyone knows who Chance is, many people may not be familiar with his manager behind the scenes, Pat Corcoran.
Pat Corcoran sat down with Complex for a 46-minute interview about how he’s taken an non-conventional route to reimagine the music industry. The special piece has Corcoran speaking openly about how he linked up with Chance and started his rise in the industry. The video is interesting from start to finish as Corcoran sheds light on how two young kids from Chicago linked up without any experience in the music industry and built their empire from the ground up to bring Chance to the forefront of music, all while staying independent.
Chance The Rapper’s father Ken Bennett was very involved with his music project in the beginning and was the one who actually approached Corcoran to be Chance’s manager. From there he took on the role, dropped out of school and never looked back. He touches on everything from his first big show, to navigating the label meetings, to making lists for Forbes 30 Under 30 & Billboard 40 Under 40. Chance and Corcoran overcame some big obstacles in the making of Coloring Book, taking the project on entirely themselves, taking phone calls with executives to get features cleared from artists like Kanye West and Justin Bieber. The video is incredible throughout and gives an incredible inside look at how two young individuals took on a massive industry on their own. Enjoy!
Minnesota is back with one of his heaviest releases to date! Just last month we had the opportunity to premiere the Berkeley-based producer’s impressive 53-track set from the Oregon Eclipse Gathering, and today he’s proving that he has no intentions of slowing down with his latest single, “HiLow.” We’ve been waiting on this one for a while, as Minnesota’s been teasing it for weeks during live performances. Needless to say, we’re very impressed with how it turned out.
“HiLow” is no doubt one of Minnesota’s hardest creations ever. The track guides you in with atmospheric synth melodies, sharp percussion and ominous vocal samples shortly before exploding into a filthy drop. The breakdown alternates between those same otherworldly synths and some downright grimy bass that only deepens with each passing second, all with old school vocal samples mixed in perfectly. Check out the single, which is available for free download, below and enjoy!
