Bukola – A Good Thing (Video)

“Our lives may not actually be as we wish, but from time to time good oportunities appear. Do we recognize the good things or let them pass away? Listen to this cheerful song from Bukola and find out what we mean.”

-Nagamag.com

Vancouver musician Bukola has been dreaming of releasing her own music since she was 9 years old and now her dreams are coming true with the launch of her debut single and video ‘A Good Thing’.

The first single from her debut EP The Chronicles of A Teenage Mind which is set for release this summer, ‘A Good Thing’ is all about knowing your own worth and not settling for anything less.

“‘A Good Thing’ was originally written as a way of me poking fun at the ‘player’ mentality that quite a bit of people my age adopt,” says Bukola. “So when you listen to the song, you’ll notice a bunch of witty lines and references to them needing to grow up and to ultimately recognize ‘A Good Thing’ when they see it. However, as I’ve gotten to live with the song, it’s also taken on an anthemic role as it serves to remind myself and hopefully others that we are all deserving of someone who will treat us right.The song reminds us we are good things, and if someone can’t see that – it’s on them.”

Recently hailed by the CBC as one of the Top 10 Soulful Female Artists in the 2020 CBC Searchlight competition, Bukola blends the sounds of contemporary R&B and Jazz music to create her own soulful sound. She’s deeply influenced by artists such as India.Arie, Daniel Caesar and H.E.R., and worked with Grammy Award-winning producer, Chin Injeti, and Juno Award-winning producer Ben Kaplan on her soon to be released debut EP The Chronicles of A Teenage Mind.

Bukola’s new single ‘A Good Thing’ is available now on Spotify, Apple Music/iTunes, and other digital retailers and streaming services worldwide. For more info, please visit www.bukolamusic.com/

Vancouver musician Nickolaj (pronounced Nickolai) is excited to announce the release of his new single ‘First Place’ out today on all digital platforms. The track is the lead single from Nickolaj’s debut EP Step Into The Light, which is set for release this summer.

Step Into The Light is produced by award-winning composer Adrian Emond and was recorded entirely by Nickolaj and Adrian in their respective home studios. Working remotely between Vancouver and Calgary, they were able to find ways to collaborate on the album virtually during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The uplifting pop-driven first single, ‘First Place’, is a song about feeling victorious, successful and confident.

“I wanted to affirm that I believe in myself and my abilities,” says Nickolaj. “‘First Place’ is ultimately a song about greatness, and by sharing this song, I strive to inspire others to pursue their definition of greatness.”

Choosing freedom over fear is the driving force behind Nickolaj. After living in Denmark during his adolescence, Nickolaj moved to Vancouver where much of his formative years were spent listening to The Beatles, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Alicia Keys, Prince, and Michael Jackson. He spent his early 20s performing in intimate lounges, historic venues and local festivals, gaining acclaim among his peers, and then two years at music school further nurtured the prospering songwriter. Nickolaj’s unrelenting devotion and energy now propel him into a blossoming solo career.

Raina Sokolov-Gonzalez – Better For You (Spotify)

“Jazz elements, funk and soul flavor and an impressive improvisation. -Better For You- is the successful combination of live and electronic music, in which the incomparable and exceptional vocals of -Raina Sokolov-Gonzalez- are just crazy!”

“Джазовые элементы, колорит funk и soul и впечатляющая импровизация. -Better For You- это удачная комбинация живой и электронной музыки, в которой бесподобный и исключительный вокал -Raina Sokolov-Gonzalez- просто сводит с ума!”

-Nagamag.com

Raina Sokolov-Gonzalez is a singer/composer based in Brooklyn, New York. Born into a family of musicians, music was Raina’s first language and it runs deep within her veins. Rooted in Jazz and R&B, the songwriter invites us into her unique sonic world with harmonic nuance and lyrical poetry.

Raina’s cross-genre style is built from the bottom up. With improvisation as a starting point for her songs, Raina draws on her emotionality and leans into her perception of the world around, uncovering hidden depths within daily life and articulating personal truth with vulnerability and bravery. Songwriting is her way of processing and understanding life in all its complexity.

Her latest single “Better For You” grapples with the gaze, focusing on the experience of being objectified and the ambiguous response to this reality. The song is most explicitly about sex and the ways in which heterosexual dynamics often prioritize men’s pleasure. “Better For You” highlights the ways in which women contort themselves physically and emotionally to be more desirable. Raina shares, “It also depicts the flip side of this, where we become or can become hooked on being the desired one; the way we come to need it, the way our identity becomes tied to this positioning. This is the ambiguity, the grey.” Drawing on her Latinx heritage, the rhythmic piano phrases, dynamic instrumentation and a grooving rhythm section provide a hypnotic backdrop for Raina’s clear and concise vocals.

The accompanying video is a depiction of different aspects of self and their varied responses to the same encounter. The parallel progression of the character in the orange world untying the ribbons and the character in the yellow world becoming emotionally undone, represents an unraveling, a release from the constraint of the gaze, a coming into her own rawness and vulnerability, co-existing with her strength all at once.

With over 600k streams on Spotify and a budding global audience, RSG has packed rooms at prestigious venues such as Brooklyn Bowl, SOB’s, Rockwood Music Hall, MoMA PS1 and many others. Opening for artists such as Starchild and the New Romantic, Raina has a deep connection to the New York City music scene. She has performed for 3-time Grammy Award winning singer Marc Anthony, who took a strong interest in her music, as well as having had the honor of working with Jazz composer William Parker, performing with him on stage and appearing on his albums.

“Better For You” is the first single to be released off of the upcoming album IF THEY’RE MINE, due spring 2021.

Gabrielle Current – Down the Line (Video)

“Gabrielle Current is responsible for this awesome work. Low bpm R&B, full with elegant loops, relaxing beat and the super hot singing voice from a favourite artist. The last in playlist is usually the best. “Down the Line” could be last too!”

-Nagamag.com

24-year-old Gabrielle Current returns to the forefront of moody, bedroom R&B-meets-pop scene with her newest track “Down The Line,” due out next week.

In “Down the Line,” gorgeous melancholic piano reels you in and soon after, Current’s silky and nostalgic vocals follow. The broody melody quickly evolves as the tempo shifts in the chorus and gives us some classic ’90s throwback feels. Current muses on the importance of independence and self-love as she hums the poignant line “I’m satisfied with being on my own.”

Gabrielle shares, “‘Down the Line’ definitely set the tone for this project. It was the first song I wrote for the EP and all the songs that followed are really just extensions of the struggle I felt during that time. It’s a reflection of my ability to process change and experience the freedom that comes with it. It was through the letting go of a familiar relationship that I gained an independence and a type of freedom that could only come from me.”

Proclaimed as a “stellar talent” by tastemakers like This Song is Sick, Earmilk, Indie Shuffle and numerous others, “Down The Line” is a strong follow-up to Current’s highly praised singles “Plenty” and Undercover” and bound to put the rising act on your artists-to-watch radar in 2021.

“This sultry new tune has everything you could want from a proper slow burner.”

“tasteful sensibilities and stellar talent make it clear that Gabrielle Current has musical maturity beyond her years” -Earmilk

“hits the sweet spot between pop, jazz, and R&B.” – Neon Music

“soul-steeped weightiness.” – Indie Shuffle

The Los Angeles born-and-bred Gabrielle grew up surrounded by the arts. Having spent much of her childhood and teen years modeling, Gabrielle was exposed to the creative industries at a formative age and spent her free time at a weekend performing arts school. After high school, Gabrielle discovered the magic of songwriting. Littered with metaphors and poetic structure, Gabrielle’s authentic and raw lyricism is at once refreshing and relatable.

Current has worked with notable producers including FINNEAS, Kaskade, Cassian, and Felix Cartal and her voice has reached the ears of millions. Now she is stepping out as an artist in her own right. Additionally, she’s worked with notable producers Mark Pelli (Sabrina Claudio, Shakira, Jennifer Lopez) in LA, and Charlie Perry (Jorja Smith, BTS) in London and her forthcoming debut EP was created in collaboration with Austin Brown (Hablot Brown).

I’ve been there and that isn’t always an easy thing to do, so I hope this song serves as a reminder for any of my fans out there who need it. You’re worth so much more than someone’s BS.”

Duwende – Fantastic (Spotify)

“Light and cheerful R&B from Duwende. Don't forget to add this in your playlist as it brings a positive feeling and you will definitely want to listen again!”

-Nagamag.com

‘Fantastic’ is a Hip-Hop ode to transparent intentions, consent, and to socially awkward folks shooting their shot.

In creating their debut album, Duwendé set out to make a body work from the perspective of a night out complete with friends, drinks and good vibes. A challenge was presented to the band to make a Hip-Hop drenched track from a different perspective. That led the band to the inception of their third single from the upcoming album, ‘Fantastic’.

With a sound described as a 'grown and sexy Pentatonix', the NYC-based sextet doubles down on “their fiercely original, bass-and-beatbox-driven style of music” with their latest release.
