Music has the power to stimulate the senses. It can make one see, taste, touch, smell, and even feel differently. It is rare in today’s industry for artists to bring the type of flavor that insights that from a crowd.

This is where the south Chicago native, Energe shines amongst the few. He brings unique sounds that tease the ear of listeners into wanting more. Rapper/Singer/Songwriter/Producer/Engineer hybrid has always been connected internally to writing and creating music.

EnergeBorn July 14, 1990, the pen found its home in his hands early in his youth. He began writing poems and short stories while also playing instruments, which led him to produce his own music accompanied by his lyrics. Heʼs been making his brand of music since 2010, displaying a plethora of different “moods”.

 

Being from a city like Chicago, a place that is famously known as a melting pot, the mood there is always up and
down.

When asked about his ability to combine various genres he replies “Webster says energy can neither be created nor destroyed; rather, it transforms from one form to another. So drop the “Y” and
add an “E”. You see how I just leveled up there?”

Having had his music described by Pigeons and Planes as “effortlessly commanding” Energe, as of late has been playing the shadows for the last several months before completely ‘disappearingʼ from most Social platforms for “fear of ingesting his peers’ style”, which is a common thing amongst artists in this day and age. Energe embraces his habit of morphing into a recluse because it is in this creative space that his distractions are few and vibes are plentiful.

As a bi-coastal performer, Energe dominates the stages with his captivating tunes in past captivating tunes in past performances such as sharing the stage with Big K.R.I.T to winning 2nd place at SXSWʼs 2013 Coast2Coast. Energeʼs style of performance is refreshingly engaging and intimate. He is no stranger to weaving his way throughout his crowds sending many of his fans into a tizzy with his fluidity as a rapper-singer.

To date, his crowd favorites such as “High Note”, “I Get It”, and “Answer The Phone” pushes fans to want more from the artist In 2017, Energe has strategic plans to continue igniting The rhythmic flames with weekly releases. All while working on an album he also plans to release this year.

[MUSIC] YOUNG SAINT NICK – “GOLD”| @YOUNGSAINTNICK

International Recording Artist, Young Saint Nick teams up with Canadian producer Victor Ardene on latest single, “Gold” 

Young Saint Nick was born in Newmarket and raised in the studio. At the age of 16, YSN penned some lyrics and gave his best shot on the mic. It was a hobby until he met his partner in crime, Victor Ardene. The young producer’s interest piqued at the age of 15 and Victor decided to attend college, where he was in the top rankings of his whole class. The partnership was a God-send because Young Saint Nick lacked the knowledge and skills needed for his newly released project. At that moment, they re-recorded/re-mastered every track on the mixtape “Raised in the Studio.”

The self-titled song appeared on the mixtape, which debuted on YSN’s Soundcloud and Youtube accounts. “Raised in the Studio” – a creative metaphorical semi-fictional story about Young Saint Nick’s upbringing in the studio- was created during the compilation process of the project. During this time, the dynamic duo pumped out original music that was getting good responses. After their first song, “Moving On,” they dropped it on an eight-track album across 150 music platforms.

At that time, YSN proved that he is a contender in this game. He started developing his musical technique quickly which could be heard in his delivery. In his own right, he was beginning to surpass some of his idols like Eminem and Nonstop mainly because he studied their lyrical punchlines and dance styles. With his natural touch and work ethic, YSN has been told by fans that they would rather watch him than Nonstop.

Young Saint Nick worked hard to get to where he is, and it’s safe to say he’s on his way to reaching much-aspired fame. Only time will tell where his extraordinary work ethic will take him. Connect with Young Saint Nick to watch his journey.

[MUSIC] Nyasia Chanel – “Do it Like That” Remix Ft Jay Bankz |@Nyasia_Chanel_

Nyasia Chanel and Dancehall artist, Jay Bankz  remixed her latest single, “Do it Like That”

 

On a balmy summer night surrounded by family, young R&B songstress Nyasia Chane’l excitedly listened as her song played. That Sunday night on July 29, 2018, DJ Norie of Power 105.1 FM debuted the remix to her single “Do It Like That” featuring Dancehall artiste Jay Bankz.

Nyasia Chane’l grew up in the small town of Fallsburg in the Catskills region of Upstate New York. Known then as Nyasia Harris, she began to express herself creatively at an early age. “I’ve been singing since I was four years old. Music has been my passion and my creative expression all my life.” She says. Through the years she was always singing, dazzling both parishioners in the pews at church and her classmates in the halls of her high school.

It was always evident that Nyasia had raw talent, so at the age of 20, she began exploring her music more seriously. Nyasia recorded a demo, and after hearing her voice through the microphone, she knew that this was something she could enjoy doing professionally. With the encouragement of her friends and family, Nyasia began to write her songs and record them. She started to create her sound based on the R&B and Soul singers she grew up listening to.

Her music began to spark local interest and she was invited to perform at various venues across the tristate, including playing with the legendary Blues performer, Grand Slam Allen, at the Resorts Worlds Catskills Casino, and as an opening act for award-winning R&B crooner August Alsina at the Chance Theater located in Poughkeepsie, New York.

Initially released in January of 2018, “Do it Like That” was written by Nyasia Chanel and produced by Vic On The Beat. It’s well received by both industry insiders and the public alike.  “Do it like that” began to garner moderate success, receiving airplay on local and internet radio stations across the country. Audiences enjoyed the track during her live performances. Nyasia felt that the Caribbean vibe of the song needed to be refreshed, enter Jay Bankz, who contributes an authentic “dancehall deejay” element which perfectly complimented the sultry vocals on the record.

Jay Bankz is an up and coming independent artist, hailing from Jamaica and currently resides in the United States. Jay Bankz latest single “Success” is making its way up the independent Dancehall charts in Jamaica and is one of the most sought-after rookies in the game.

The musical chemistry between Bankz and Nyasia has been prominently on display all summer long during their live performances “Do It Like That” is currently available on all major streaming platforms.
