Southern Artist, Golden captures his listeners with his single “Golden- Zone”

The underground artist named Golden is from Birmingham Alabama with a Toronto-based sound. Coming from poverty with an absent father and mother, he grows up moving between Chicago, Atlanta, and his native land. Never spending much time anywhere hinders him from establishing real relationships. Most life events pertaining to his relocations are short term and translates into his relationships now. He has never been able to give any lady, all he can, in fear that it will all just up and disappear when he gets comfortable. 

GOLDENGolden has very few friends due to causing much trouble in his younger life. In pursuit of respect, he wouldn’t get due to wearing the same clothes and never having money or anything his peers had, which he turned to violence to do so. He thought, if they wouldn’t respect him, they would fear him. Due to abusive siblings and poor parenting, his emotional trauma has bled into his adult life. Trusting no one and very few people in his reclusive circle numb him to desire any relationship with anyone and even still distrusting his closest friends with the deep truth that everyone is temporary. Creative expression has been the only permanent force he has known to have never left him. Golden uses music as an outlet to express his pain and make a better life for himself and the people around him. Be sure to connect with him on all social media and digital music platforms.

[NEW MUSIC] SOWILO – “SCREAM AND SHOUT” FT. SIR THE BAPTIST

Sowilo, The International Producer teams up with Chicago Artist, Sir The Baptist on his new single “Scream and Shout”

Meet Sowilo, the newest addition to the up and coming indie label, IDAP Music’s roster. The enigmatic producer Sowilo is a one-stop-shop kind of artist, a true one-man band, playing an assortment of live instruments as well as being a world-class engineer & programmer. The mysterious Scandinavian music maker/producer searched the globe and found a hip-hop saint from the streets of Chicago. Sir the Baptist lends his musical talents to combine a unique blend of hip-hop-infused with rich gospel soul, a dash of pop sensibility, and something as unique as a “hip hop EDM drop”.

“Scream & Shout,” an uplifting and playful track for any season-it’s irreverent, it’s rebellious, and it doesn’t give a damn what anyone thinks. The song is a battering ram of fun energy that unapologetically kicks the door in on traditional notions of female empowerment. This marks the 1st collaboration as well as a musical debut for the artist. But if you think you have a style identified or a sound locked in, you’d be mistaken. We should expect unlikely and unexpected collaborations ahead in any genre from urban to EDM to world music and beyond.

“I love combining different genres by latching onto the underlying emotion which is what we all have in common.” says the producer. The head of the label Julian Alexander concurs with this creative philosophy and forecasts interesting new releases, “Sowilo pushes boundaries, and effortlessly blends genres when the songs call for it. Expect some exciting singles from Sowilo with big A-list artists as well as obscure world music collaborations.” 

The single is now available on digital music platforms worldwide and recently was featured in the global digital campaign for Apple Watch. For more on upcoming releases follow Sowilo on IG @sowilomusic.

Chicago native, Energe teams up with Ray Illa on his latest single, “Two Twelve”

 

 

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.

Energe describes his new work as “a gap-bridger”. Not sure exactly what he has in store but his fans cannot wait! It will be the feature for his summer tour and the focal point of his thought-provoking visuals
