Dylan Mccarthy – ‘LOVE IT’ OUT NOW
LOVE IT by Dylan McCarthy is a very unique song because of it’s wordplay, mixed with catchy melodies and funny/creative video. This fun and upbeat song acts as a fresh new kind of pop/hip-hop music from a young man from Buffalo, NY. Dylan, although a relatively unknown act, is currently signed and represented by his manager, Johnny Vieira, who has founded several big acts. Dylan has potential to blow up and be one of these big acts soon due to his infectious hooks and happy personality that both shine in this video. With more exposure and time for this young man to grow a fan base and an audience, there is no telling the limits he could get to.
She recently amped up excitement for the project with the single “Try Peace.” Touted by The Line of Best Fit, Rated R&B, and more, Billboard named it among the “R&B/Hip-Hop Fresh Picks of the Week” and wrote, “On the vulnerable single, the British singer-songwriter details growth after heartbreak, opting for a healthier route with her latest love.”

1300, Korean-Australian rap collective, share ‘Rocksta”; “energetic, unmatched” (VICE)
Foreign Language is the dialect of 1300: merging the raw volatility of Soundcloud rap with the high-budget sheen of K-hip hop. The 5piece have created a singular sound pulling from trap, hip hop, dance, hyperpop, and more. High on chaos, energy, and adventure through a blaze of bass and synths, Foreign Language is indicative of the space 1300 occupy as cross-cultural artists and performers; not quite entirely ‘Australian’ nor ‘Korean’ but wholly rako, goyo, DALI HART, Nerdie and pokari.sweat. 1300 is able to convert any crowd into speakers of the group’s own foreign language.
