“The groove here is so minimal but in a good, very smart way, becoming soon very addictive and leaving the right space of these spacious sensual vocals, why someone been angry with love? Twitch 4EVA explains…”

Fresh on the back of the success of his recently released debut EP LOST, which has been garnering strong support and critical acclaim since its release, adding to the over 3 million plays already under his belt, and with his latest collaboration with revered UK producer Juls (Kojey Radical, GoldLink, Mr Eazi, Ms Banks) titled ‘Mmayewa’ starting to heat up with over 300,000 streams in two weeks, Ghanaian artist, songwriter and musician TWITCH 4EVA is excited to reveal the music video for one of the standout tracks from his EP titled ‘CHASKELE’.

Produced by East London musician Rayf (Kwollem, Kwesi Arthur, PBGR), ‘Chaskele’ sees Twitch 4EVA in fine form once again, as he brings his genre-bending ‘Coastal Music’ fusion sound, driven by his lush R&B, pop and afrobeats sensibilities, to the forefront. Twitch 4EVA’s excellent vocal prowess, captivating singing style and delivery, and honest songwriting, as can be heard throughout ‘Chaskele’, continues to set himself apart as one of the best new artists crossing over from West Africa into the global music landscape, and certainly one to watch for 2021.

The cinematic and emotive music video for ‘Chaskele’ sees Twitch 4EVA collaborating with burgeoning video director Andy Madjitey to offer a compelling tale of black love and heartbreak, driven by stunning cinematography and landscapes – from its veiled homage to Black Panther, to how the visuals beautifully capture the Aburi Botanical Gardens in the coastal city of Tema in Ghana, to the contrasting colours throughout the story, the ‘Chaskele’ visuals rely on symbolism to show us how love and relationships can be an emotional roller coaster.

Speaking about the inspiration for ‘Chaskele’, Twitch 4EVA says, “With this ‘Chaskele’ track, I wanted to be more open about my love life – I really loved this girl and thought it was true love, but apparently she was just in for fun. I was heartbroken, and for someone who finds it difficult to express his feelings, I really let out my emotions on this song. I kept asking myself when this pain in my heart would end and I believe this track was the only way I could describe my hurt since I couldn’t show it physically. It’s a piece of me and how I really felt at that time, because I was really in love with this person and never wanted to lose her, but it is what it is”.

Khamari – Other Side (Spotify)

“Khamari and Jae Stephens team up and deliver you a heartwarming R&B, called -Other Side-, the 5th track of Khamari's album -Eldorado-. Through a top notch production and soulful vocals making the right soundtrack for your night rides or night hugs ;) ”

-Nagamag.com

Other Side brings the narrative arc of Khamari’s debut project into its nostalgic post relationship state. The final single from his Eldorado EP reminisces back to how they were, how they felt, and leaves the door ajar in case it's worth revisiting. Over production from Alex Delicata and Trackside, counterbalanced with Jae Stephens’ vocal harmonies, he continues the intimately musical vibe of the project. As a body of work, the full sequence of songs illustrates the rise and fall of love, expectation, and fulfillment.

Khamari's career debuted with a trio of Spotify New Music Friday placements, including a #10 spot with his sophomore release The Heat. His editorial support rounded out as the cover artist for Spotify's Fresh Finds, and further playlisting on Apple Music FEELS, Amazon's The New Black and Breakthrough R&B, and as cover artist for Tidal's Pop:Rising. With over 4 million cumulative streams in his first 3 songs - including 500k in The Heat's first week on Spotify alone - Khamari's first chapter is off to a powerful start.

A multifaceted independent artist, songwriter, and producer, Khamari grew up in the Dorchester neighborhood of Boston, MA. His first project wraps his powerfully earnest songwriting around contemporary sonics, with stellar production from Trackside throughout, as well as his own production. Skilled as a vocalist, pianist, and guitarist, Khamari's music is distilled from influences ranging as wide as The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, and Sly Stone, to Frank Ocean, Kid Cudi, and Mac Miller.

“Low Key is a part of a trilogy recently released under a single named The Sun from talented new artist Erik Frank who comes into the international music scene with vigour to thrill all those who are excited by a mix of R&B and Hip Hop hearings”

-Nagamag.com

Nicknamed Melody Genius by Grammy Nominated producer Jayson DeZuzio (Imagine Dragons), and anyone Erik works with, the 22-year-old had humble beginnings.

Duckwrth, KIAN – Quick (Spotify)

Critically acclaimed rapper Duckwrth announces the release of his label debut album SuperGood coming out on August 21.

To coincide with the announcement, he releases his new track “Quick” featuring Republic Records labelmate KIAN today.

On the track, the friction between a skittering guitar riff, off-kilter beat and smooth harmonies underscore nimble wordplay from Duckwrth before a chantable hook from KIAN. An unpredictable one-two punch of alternative energy, funk spirit and hip-hop fire, it pops off as yet another anthem from this musical maverick.

“Quick” follows the recent track and video release of “Coming Closer” feat. G.L.A.M. and Julia Romana. Met with tastemaker praise UPROXX proclaimed, “Duckwrth Channels Disco’s Heyday In His Vibrant ‘Coming Closer’ Video.”

Of the song, HYPEBEAST also claimed, “The song sees Duckwrth finding his pocket on the bouncy instrumental that you’d normally hear on dance floors throughout the states if it wasn’t for the current era of isolation and quarantine.” Additionally, Variance dubbed it “a dancefloor-ready anthem.”

In other big news, he launched his weekly NTS radio show SuperGood Nights Presented By Duckwrth, featuring guest sets from Louis The Child, Kyle Dion, Channel Tres and more surprise guests coming soon. The show airs every Friday up to August 28th at 8-9 pm PST. Be sure to tune in here.

Earlier this year, he dropped off “Find A Way” feat. Alex Mali, Radio Ahlee, & Bayli. HipHopDX praised its “melodic message of perseverance,” and Brooklyn Vegan described it as “powerful.” HYPEBEAST wrote, “The single serves as an uplifting anthem during these troubling times, featuring lyrics that showcase the artist’s ability to reminisce about the past and see a way forward.” Earmilk put it best, “The single plays as a welcome beam of light during a dark time.”

Over the last five years, LA-based wunderkind Duckwrth has quickly risen up the ranks as a promising star of the future of music. His collection of critically acclaimed projects including Nowhere (2015,) I’m Uugly (2016), Xtra Uugly (2017) and The Falling ManEP (2019), have transcended streaming platforms and landed in films, TV series, and brand ad campaigns and have received critical acclaim from a vast amount of outlets including NPR, The FADER, Complex, XXL and more. This cumulation has led the rapper to become an international touring staple, headlining shows globally and performing at Austin City Limits and opening for superstars Billie Eilish and Anderson .Paak. Duckwrth’s music has appeared on shows like CW’s All American, HBO’s Insecure and Real Time with Bill Maher and his song “Start A Riot” was featured on the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse soundtrack. His music has appeared in campaigns for the likes of Cadillac, Microsoft, Peloton, Amazon and Apple Music, and he’s worked with fashion legacies like Levi’s, Vans and Fila, as well as high fashion men’s suit designer Paul Smith.
