Said The Sky
Pray For Me (feat. Origami)

I’m going to go ahead and throw down the gauntlet and say that Said The Sky is currently the best song writer you are going to find anywhere. I keep thinking to myself, “How will he top this one?” and then he goes ahead and does just that. His newest track “Pray For Me” featuring Origami may be his most captivating song yet, which is saying a lot.

From writing, to production to performing, Said The Sky can do it all. We recently caught him at Moonrise and it was our favorite performance of the entire festival. Literally, the crowd was growing from start to finish as though he was at the mainstage. Said The Sky will continue to do his thing until he’s at the top of the game, which won’t take long with work like “Pray For Me” and his previous releases. He’s got more coming, that we promise you. Get “Pray For Me” today.

RAY VOLPE
Reality

On September 5th, Ray Volpe will be releasing his EP Reality. Luckily, you don’t have to sit and wait until that date with nothing to show for it. Ray’s dropped the title track and if you pre-order the EP on iTunes, you’ll instantly get a copy of the song.

Ray goes all out hybrid with song, bringing trap and dubstep together in epic fashion. “Reality” also sees the producer jump back into the driver seat as the vocalist on the project, which is something he’s increasingly done over the past year or so. The top notch sound design is the highlight for us on this one though. Ray’s always managed to keep his technical skills at the top of the game and they’ve gotten him where he’s at today alongside his talent for emotional songwriting.

[Music Video] Ekoh feat. Almost Normal – Daudrie

Las Vegas rapper Ekoh has put out an emotional new single called “Daudrie” alongside Almost Normal. Not only do we get a song, but also a video, both based on the Netflix documentary Audrie and Daisy. Hence the name that had us confused at first.

With a topic such as sexual assault, it’s not easy to pull off something that sounds so genuine and stays true to victims involved. Ekoh does justice to the cause with a heart-dropping project that doesn’t miss a beat on any front, aural or visual. Artists are often not standing for things anymore, unless it will help their social marketing and look like they care, but Ekoh’s true intentions shine through a wonderful project. He took it as seriously as he could and it shows.
