UTP SKIP Floods The Street With ‘No Features’

Saturday, March 25th, 2017

The Heat Magazine was able to get a listen and early live performance of “24” in the streets of New Orleans by the UTP recording artist a few weeks ago.

However, UTP Skip has a sense of humor and sometimes you can’t take him literally. The homie said he was releasing a mixtape with featureless  artwork meaning without face or eyebrows.

Skip kept his word and rekindled the streets with a super dope project laced with BlaqnMild production.

Track Listing

01 – 24 Intro
02 – No Features
03 – Bubble Head
04 – Movie
05 – Drip
06 – Perks And Zans
07 – No Features Skit
08 – 24 Radio

Be sure to catch the 24 wordplay as well as the hit Perks and Zans. It didn’t take long for that one to take off.  UTP Skip transcended while maintaining his lively aura and street demeanor. The Heat Magazine wanted our readers to be in the know. Utp Skip is definitely a lyricist and No Features is an understatement related to this body of work. At the end of the day, it contains good music and lyrics and that’s the iconic feature music needs today.

Brass-A-Holics Unveil Tracklist Artwork For New Mixtape

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017

Some may call it fusion; others may call it synthesis. The internationally renowned Brass-A-Holics, natives from the birthplace of jazz, call it a language being spoken between music colleagues. This language they are referring to manifests within their musical compositions on stage and recordings.

As a follow up to their debut album, “I Am A Brass-A-Holic”, Heat Magazine readers and faithful fans are soon to hear “Word On The Street-The Prequel”, an intriguing mixtape that serves as a precursor to their highly-anticipated upcoming album. Both the mixtape and album were recorded live in New Orleans. The Heat Magazine just received the tracklist artwork for the mixtape which is scheduled to be released as early as March 27, 2017. On March 30th, the Brass-A-Holics will be performing in Washington, DC at the Hamilton. Then, they will perform at the  Ardmore in Philadelphia on March 31.

As always, we wanted to share good vibes with our readers and Brass-A-Holics aficionados. “Word On The Street-The Prequel” will be available on most digital mixtape sites and reputable blogs.

The Heat Magazine: Why do a mixtape?

The Brass-A-Holics: We wanted our fans to have a tangible body of work that captures what we do best and that’s playing great music live on stage. Our audience loves the music we play that touches on various genres.

As a result, The Brass-A-Holics have created a phenomenal blend of well known songs but it is the manner in which they perform these melodic masterpieces that makes it unique.

“It’s not a whole lot a band can do with limited instrumentation when it comes to playing certain songs but our band has been able to produce a mixtape without restriction. We have guitarists, keyboardist, percussionist, and horns to assure our goals musically,” said Brass-A-Holics trombonist Winston Turner.
“The music is great. It sounds really good,” added Brass-A-Holics saxophonist Robin Clabby.

It’s a rare achievement for a live band to create a mixtape with so much rhythmic depth. “We can appeal to all audiences. The young and the old,” said Brass-A-Holics trumpeter Tannon Williams.
With such an eclectic fan base, The Heat Magazine is certain several music listeners will enjoy their body of work. We will be sure to feature “Word On The Street-The Prequel” mixtape audio once released.

Yung Juko scores another hit

Wednesday, March 1st, 2017

After a whirlwind year spent recording, shooting videos and hitting the road for radio promo with Bigga Rankin, Yung Juko unleashed his debut project, “YNFA” (Ya Next Favrite Artist) on the front page of My Mixtapez yesterday. Hosted by Bigga Rankin himself, who recently came on board as a co-manager, this project is eight solid, no-feature tracks of Juko’s signature rap-ish R&B that will keep ya head nodding from start to finish.

Featured are hits, “Trust Nobody”, “Learn From The Streets” and the soulful “Pray For Me” which combined, have garnered Juko close to 3.5 million views on YouTube. “Trust Nobody” also had the good grace to chart on two Billboard charts, hitting the Top 5 on both.

Be sure to look for the kid if you are out and about at SXSW next month and until then, give “YNFA” a spin or two. It will definitely be time well spent.

BLUSH – “Cinderella” ft Mystikal | @OfficiallyBlush

Music World Entertainment’s new girl trio, BLUSH releases visual to debut single, “Cinderella” featuring Mystikal

 

 

Music World Entertainment’s new girl trio, BLUSH releases visual to debut single, “Cinderella” featuring Mystikal. Their new single, “Cinderella” from their debut album, “Old School Back Past, Present, and Future” is currently available in the digital marketplace.

Comprised of Sunni, Tali and Bunni Ray, together they present something indeed fresh, yet reminiscent of favorites like TLC, Destiny’s Child and Salt-N-Pepa. Sunni, a Woodland Hills, California native moved to Houston at age 6 and quickly found a passion in writing rhymes and poetry, while heavily influenced by artists like Mc Lyte, Lauryn Hill and Tupac. Tali, a Houston native, incorporates her Colombian roots throughout her lyrics and style while complementing the rap duo with her vocal prowess. The newest member is Bunni Ray, another Houston native, who synchronizes her fast rhymes with a high-pitched, sassy swagger.

“We’re 90s babies,We’re bringing that old school hip hop back. We’re going to trend set with that.” ~TALI

Now when it comes to rap, many lovers of the genre argue that these times call for something, that is in the best hip-hop vernacular—fresh. Known for introducing uber-talented artists to the music industry, including his own offsprings (Beyonce & Solange), Mathew Knowles prepares to deliver on that order. The music mogul found phenomenal success grooming and managing the mega group Destiny’s Child. Now, he is now handing out mics to BLUSH, a harmonically blended hip-hop and R&B trio (est. 2013) and they are using them to mix fiery rhymes and hooks reminiscent of the 90’s hip-hop era— but with a trendy twist. Their debut album is filled with upbeat and mid-tempo tracks; ones that reveal the sharp versatility of blending two passionate rappers with a sultry, powerhouse vocalist.

Be sure to follow Blush on all social media networks to stay in tune with all of their upcoming features and events.

February 3rd at The House of Blues in New Orleans on Decatur Street, they will embark on a new milestone.
