NEW VIDEO: Jose Conde Announces New Album “Souls Alive in the 305,” First Single “Dale Ya ‘Ya” Out Now
Jose describes the new single stating, “Dale Pa ‘Ya is an absurd mantra to empower those who need to exorcise demons or ex-lovers, gun freaks or dictators, or any other bad energy ~ just DALE PA ‘YA! It is a simple forceful phrase over a funky groove.” He adds, “The phrase is Cuban and it literally means ‘GET OVER THERE! Inspired by my dog, I used to sing it as a joke to him and then decided to put it together as a song!” Now the funk treatment was directly inspired by George Clinton’s Atomic Dog, but mixed with Jose’s unique style that brings the song to life.
DATAROCK’s Fredrik Saroea teams up with acclaimed ensemble BIT20 for bittersweet “Heaven Knows Those Songs Weren’t Heaven Sent” single.
“This is the last song on my Rona Diaries solo album, and I guess it’s basically me pardoning the fact that I let myself write, record and release such a sad and depressing collection of lockdown songs that the listener just endured to the… bitter end, so to speak,” says Fredrik Saroea about his new single “Heaven Knows Those Songs Weren’t Heaven Sent” that premiered on BlackBook. Best known as the frontman of the critically acclaimed global disco punk outfit DATAROCK, the Norwegian multi-genre artist re-envisioned his recent solo album Rona Diaries (2021) as a live piece with award-winning string quartet BIT20 Ensemble, merging his contemplative indie rock with the exquisite air of a chamber orchestra.

Post-punk, trance & deconstructed opera collide on Sky Creature’s double EP

Ghanaian Canadian recording artist and songwriter, Bugatti Bonsu dropped his new single “Glow Up” featuring Toronto female rapper, Keesh. Following the success of his second EP, ‘Ladies Love’ Bonsu’s popularity continues to rise. The artist combines Afro-beats, Dancehall & R&B to bring a unique sound that has become synonymous with his work. Fans and media recognize Bonsu’s music and the natural ease he brings to it. It’s hard to believe that the confident artist is so comfortable with making music in studio or on stage. Bonsu was a reluctant artist. Fear kept him from turning his dream of making music into reality. It was the death of his brother that gave him the courage to move forward. Bonsu’s debut EP titled ‘No Fear’ says it all.

The first new music release of the year from Richmond rock band, The J.O.B. is here. The new single, “Here For You” is a reassuring promise of love in tough times.
