Imad Royal Pell Art

D.C. to LA based artist Imad Royal who we heard on single "Passenger" is a multitalented artist who is not only a gifted singer, but also expands his skillset as a producer and songwriter. We have the pleasure of premiering his first track of 2016 as a collaboration with New Orleans’ rapper Pell.

Down For Whatever” is a dreamy, blissful track brightened by airy synths and a hip hop instrumental with trap style hi hats and kick drums allowing the uplifting vocals lay atop seemingly effortless as the falsetto vocals shine on the catchy chorus. Pell hops on the track with a groovy verse showing why he’s an exciting new rapper on the rise as he rounds out the vibe of this pleasant tune. As a former refugee, Iman’s situation inspired him to not waste time, so kick back and  enjoy the uplifting vibes he brings on this colorful single.

R&B / soul singer Gallant has had quite the breakout year, and it seems it's not even close to over. Mind Of A Genius, the blooming label that he shares with ZHU, has been the perfect home to launch his career. It's with MOAG that he released his first big single Weight In Gold". He also made an appearance on ZHU's new EP with the collaboration “Testarosaand let's not forget Sir Elton John giving him the ultimate shout out saying "Gallant is an artist to watch. He is going to be huge.”

Chance-the-Rapper-Tinashe-Snakehips RE

In the past, Snakehips have teamed up some great vocalists on a handful of tracks including stellar works with Tory LanezSinead Harnett, and Syd (of The Internet). Now the UK production duo have fittingly enlisted the talents of both Tinashe and Chance The Rapper on their latest track “All My Friends,” as they prep for the release of their forthcoming album via Sony Music. The production style works as the perfect foundation for a swaggy Hip-Hop / R&B sound as Tinashe and Chance fit perfectly over the soft percussion and sexy instrumental with their slick vocals. Although this new one sounds club-ready, the lyrics reflect those times when all your friends are too drunk at the club and you just want to go home. Enjoy!
