#NewMusic DJ DB405 drops EP titled “Lapwing Rd” | @DJ_DB405 @PromoMixtapes

Dj DB405 aka Mr. #GodisTrill is an up and coming DJ from Oklahoma. As an Oklahoma native this is the place where he first fell in love with music. This is where it all began before being in the streets selling mixtapes, DJing nightclubs,  and grinding all around OKC at the young age of 16.
DJ DB405 is a Christian DJ who is working with artists to create music with a positive message. Dj DB405 seeks to change lives through his music. Dj DB405 named this album Lapwing Rd. after the street he grew up on in Edmond, OK.  
Let’s get into “The Lapwing Rd. EP. Overall this is a crafty project. I am feeling the energy, the delivery, and production. Dj DB405 may be a christian DJ, but he delivers a positive message over trappy beats, and highly crafted engineering which is up to par with any of his peers. 
Historically “Christian” rappers have left a “corny” taste in my mouth with their over produced beats, boring lyrics and overly “churchy” sound. We need more Christian DJ’s like Dj DB405 to bring out the dope Christian artists. I am rocking with this dudes music and I love the positive message he exudes through his projects.

James Flow releases a visual for “90’s Baby” | @JamesFlow_

With a high amount of “mumble” rappers getting the spotlight James Flow comes thru with a new single that’s reminiscent of a time when rappers really could spit. James Flow is an artist from Brampton a City in Ontario, Canada that takes pride in his music. “90’s baby” was created when James Flow realized the only real currency is time. Personally I rock with this record. James Flow keeps your attention, his delivery is clean, the production is on point, overall he keeps it short and sweet, with an abrupt ending which leaves you seeking more.

Major Singer/Songwriter KD Young Cocky Drops New Single “Lifestyle” (Credits: Dreezy, David Banner, Lil Durk, Demetria Mckinney)

R&B is making a major comeback, but not without newcomer KD Young Cocky. Known for his major placements as a songwriter with national artist including David Banner, Lil Durk, Dreezy and more, his new single “Lifestyle”, is a game changer for the R&B world. The infectious hook “Do you love me or do you love my lifestyle,” speaks to the intentions of women. Produced by Law Beatz, KD speaks to his chic coming from the heart and being in love with the lavish life from cars to strip clubs but looking for longevity.

The mid tempo classic R&B single speaks to a deeper meaning than just what’s on the surface. KD showcases his songwriting talent on “Lifestyle”, from riding the beat to switching up the flow mid verse. The single encompasses more than just a song for the present, the signature sound speaks to KD’s longevity as an artist and proves he’s up next.

Florida singer-songwriter Villz scores a Pusha T feature on “Drugs.”

Villz is a singer-songwriter from Florida whose most notable project to date is the 2014 Till The End Of Summer.

He returns today with a new single “Drugs” that features a lyrically exquisite verse from tha gawd Pusha T. Villz invites a potential love interest to come and do drugs with him, expertly navigates autotuned falsetto melodies like a a tightrope walker. Syk Sense and Fademajah uncork twisted harmonies that mesh well with Villz’ somewhat anguished vocal bursts.

Dj Smoke broke this single first on his mixtape “Smoked Out Radio 48 (Hosted By E-Reign)”

[New Music] Psychosis Slim – Verses of Vengeance | @Psychosis_Slim @DjSmokeMixtapes

Psychosis Slim makes music which represents all the underdogs in life. He’s not looking to please the mainstream. He’s trying to stand up for the little guy and use his music to vent some of the frustration life brings us. I’m sure many can relate to that.

Slim left home at the early age of 17, he joined the Army and now has 3 years under his belt and is currently stationed in Hawaii. At 20 years old Slim is a husband, and a father to their 5 month old son.

This single “Verses of Vengeance” is from his new mixtape titled “Everyone’s a Psycho“. Verses of Vengeance is produced by Boundless Beats, and appears on Dj Smoke – Smoked Out Radio 48 hosted by E-Reign. Psychosis Slim is making a name for himself and he is an artist you need to check for!

Never hesitate to reach out and contact Psychosis Slim via email: psychosisslim@gmail.com, or Twitter @Psychosis_Slim. Make sure to stop by his site and sign up to his e-mail list on psychosisslim.com before you leave!
