LA-based artist Stephen has impressed us time and time again with his genre defying creations. Although he initially grabbed our attention with the first song he released in over a two years called "Remembering Myself," Stephen continued to kept us hooked with tracks such as his electro-rock cover of Adele's "Hello" and follow-up single "Fly Down."
Now today we have one of Stephen's most impressive cuts yet. "Crossfire" is a gut-wrenching song dealing with the unjust, widespread suffering around the world. Skillfully blending indie-styled guitar and drums with subtle electronic layers — all done by Stephen himself — "Crossfire" evolves from a slow burning indie-electronic track into an all out rock fueled anthem complete with soulful female vocal harmonies. Check out his inspiration behind the track below and stay tuned for more from this 2015 stand-out. Enjoy!
"There are people out there who are suffering and there's very little they can do about it. Sometimes I feel guilty when I'm happy because I know that these people are hurting."

We’re a week out from the release of Ty Dolla $ign’s debut studio album Free TC, and now we have the intro track of the album to hold us over until it drops. Free TC has a star-studded tracklist including Kendrick Lamar, Brandy, e-40, Trey Songz, Kanye West, Diddy, Wiz Khalifa, Fetty Wap, Future, Rae Sremmurd, R. Kelly, and more across the project’s 16 tracks.
The intro track to the album is titled “LA” and fittingly features the current king of the city, Kendrick Lamar, alongside vocalists Brandy and James Fauntleroy. Ty Dolla $ign put together an ode to the west coast on this new track as he lays down smooth vocals for Brandy and James Fauntleroy to offer their soulful melodies while Kendrick comes in for an on-point verse offering homage to his city. Stream this ode to the west coast below and preorder the album here.
