HDC – Drunken Love

Small town friends join forces to create hot new duo HDC 

SANTA PAULA, CA – Jose “Joezee” Gutierrez and Israel “Short” Ruiz always knew they were destined for greatness, despite the fact that they are from such a small town in Santa Paula, California. And though many people have discouraged them from chasing their dreams of being professional musicians, these two friends are putting their passion to sound and letting the fans around the world speak for them. Together they have formed the group HDC. 

“We’re trying to create a future for ourselves so we can give back to the community and to this small town,” Joezee said. “So many people we know are trying to do better and be entrepreneurs, and they’re being talked down on. We want to start something new and fresh and keep growing ourselves as artists. We want to keep releasing music that people will enjoy and relate to and that they will love.”  

Their most recent offering to the world is a new single called “Drunken Love.” Told from their mutual perspectives, it’s a song that explores the relationships they have with their girlfriends and how they both met their women at a party. The coincidence in the way their love stories are so similar mirrors the way their lives have seemed on the same path for many years. And as they weave this story underneath a chill vibe, it creates the kind of sound that is perfect for driving late at night with that special someone. That vibey laid-back groove is one that fans of HDC will come to recognize going forward as it is part of their signature sound. 

“We want to keep it real to what we like, not change to what’s hot right now,” Short said. “We’re making music that we like doing and that’s fun to us. We write about our personal lives – heartbreaks or things with our families. It’s very personal and we put that in our music because we feel like people can relate to us. We’re talking about things that could happen to anyone.” 

Two other songs that were recently released by HDC are “Dreaming” and “About You,” both of which have been getting strong feedback from those who have listened to them. The first is about the aftermath of a drunken love – the moments after the ecstasy when you realize that person really isn’t the one you want to be with for the long haul. Short said it’s a song that “people can feel in their souls and hearts.”  

The second song, “About You,” is a little different than their other releases in both sound and style. “It’s a song about how one person can change your life for the better,” Joezee said. “During the relationship – when you’re in the middle of it and the happy times – everything about that person is exactly what you want. That’s what this song is about.” 

HDC said they’re working on more music to release later this year. To listen to their music or to follow them on social media, please:

Tynch – Nephilim

King of the South prepares to drop hot new album ‘Nephilim’ on Aug 4  

HEBER SPRINGS, AR – Tyler “Tynch” Blanchard is on a mission to be the king of Hip Hop in the South and put Arkansas on the map. His latest album, “Nephilim” is already starting to gain some attention across the country, and his debut single of the same name is the perfect showcase for this up-and-coming new performer. 

The laid-back vibe of the “Nephilim” single is the perfect kind of song to just chill with, Tynch said. Using the analogy of a fallen star and the “destroyer of gods” definition of the term NephilimTynch said the song examines what it takes to bounce back from the hard knocks of life.  

“There are other artists out there who call themselves Rap gods sometimes,” Tynch said. “Nephilim symbolizes that I can rap as good as anyone else. I’m very diverse and I’m an artist who has a lot of styles. This single is just one of many that you can see on the whole album, which has 20 total tracks.” 

While the single is currently available across all streaming platforms, the full album isn’t set to drop until August 4 which is the fifth anniversary of when Tynch started his company South Side King Productions. However, pre-order will be available on July 1st. 

Tynch produces, writes, mixes and masters all of his work and has been developing his own unique sound over the past five years so that today, his signature style is undeniable.

“I can modulate my voice and basically hit any beat as long as I can vibe to it,” he said. “I feel my lyrics are very creative. I put a lot of thought into that. You have to dig deep beneath the surface to get the full meaning of what I’m saying, which I think makes people engage more. At the end of the day, I want my music to be known for being real. I only write about stuff going on in my life – issues I’m dealing with or things I’ve experienced. But I do that in a different way than anyone else. Most important is that my lyrics are real and I want people to know that. And through that, I can relate with anyone who’s going through a similar circumstance.” 

Tynch said he’s always been a fan of Hip Hop music and recalls listening to artists like Lil Wayne when he was as young as age 6. Today, he said he leans more toward the NF kind of vibe, and loves how NF creates lyrics that always seem to relate to him. 

“I feel like if he heard my stuff, he’d feel the same way,” Tynch said. “We write about similar scenarios, just in different ways. It’s funny because originally, I wasn’t going to be a rapper, but I really like writing and I just fell in love with the art of Rap. No one else can portray what I’m seeing, but a lot of people can connect with what I’m saying. That’s what I love.”

Jon Swaii – Contagious

Jon Swaii expands on legacy of inspirational messages with powerful new music 

BRONX, NY – When Jon Swaii was a teenager in school, he remembers learning about the Vietnam war. One image from that period of time hit him deeply – the image of a Buddhist monk setting himself on fire in protest of the war. Jon saw that image and realized that the monk believed so much in his message that he knew his act of self-sacrifice would inspire others to take a stand. 

That’s the kind of impact he, too, wants to leave on the world.  

The young artist from Bronx, New York is already starting to inspire people with his unique sound and style. As an artist and producer, Jon Swaii is using his talents to create meaningful messages that motivate the masses. He brings a diverse background of influences to the table too, which makes him the perfect artist to connect with a wide range of audiences. 

Due to instability at home at an early age, Swaii relocated every couple of years – at one point living in Italy for two years. He also lived in Florida, Albany, Long Island, Virginia and Pennsylvania. He often felt like the “new kid” as a child and found himself the easy target for bullying. Instead of lashing out, he turned to poetry to release his emotions – turning his fear and rage into words that others started to connect with. He became obsessed with perfecting his craft, turning poetry into Rap and studying some of his favorite artists such as Kid Cudi, Jay-Z, Nas, Eminem, Andre 3000 and J. Cole. As a result, Swaii has created a sound that is real Hip Hop – lyrical, genuine and versatile. 

“It’s not made for any one specific type of person,” he said of his music. “My main objective is to influence the growing minority to grab power. There’s a genuine real-ness about my music. I want to be one of those artists that people listen to and whose music is timeless. When you listen to my music, I hope you get the same emotions 10 years from now as you do the first time you listened to it.” 

Swaii has quite the pedigree when it comes to music and inspirational messages. His great grandfather, Leonard P. Howell, was the founder of Rastafarianism and preached a message of black power and anti-colonialism in Jamaica, Africa and the U.S. Swaii said he wants to expand on that legacy and use his music to connect in meaningful ways across the world. 

He released the single “Contagious 8 months ago and a re-release date is set for June 20th. The song is a play on the way we all currently use and abuse technology, from the simple use of our cell phones, to the over sharing on social media. “Contagious” brings awareness to the flaws of being dependent on technology by today’s youth. What is meant to keep us all connected quickly turns into a voice in our heads demanding “POST IT”. 

He is also working on a bigger EP called “Paradise” which he hopes to release later this year.

DARKSTARGRAVER Debuts ‘Burning Bridges’ EP

PORTSMOUTH RAP ARTIST AND SONGWRITER DARKSTARGRAVER UNVEILS DEBUT EP ‘BURNING BRIDGES’

Hailing from the south coast of England in Portsmouth, DARKSTARGRAVER is an exciting UK rap prospect for 2020, who comes highly recommended if you like the hard-hitting sounds of Octavian, Skepta, Denzel Curry, A$AP Rocky, or Kojey Radical. Led by introductory tracks ‘CodeRED’ and ‘Snakes & Ladders’, which were released earlier this year to rave reviews, Burning Bridges is the debut EP from the 22-year old British Zambian rapper, singer and songwriter DarkStarGraver.

While he cut his teeth and honed his skills in the south of England, and has established himself at the forefront of the emerging Hip Hop scene in Portsmouth, DarkStarGraver draws his influences from diverse cultures and backgrounds, having experienced life all over the UK in his very young 22 years, from Birmingham to Kensal Green to Richmond to Glasgow – travels and experiences which have shaped his perspective, musical tastes, and styles, as is evident on his new Burning Bridges EP.

Sonically, Burning Bridges sees DarkStarGraver taking an international approach, working with producers from Russia, Germany, and America to help map out the global rap sound of the record, including Minnesota producer P.SOUL, who has worked with YBN Cordae, Trippie Redd, XXXTENTACION, and Joey Bada$$, Russian beatsmith Roman RSK, whose credits include producing for Nasty C, The Underachievers, and ELLEVN, and NC-based producer Airavata, who has worked with German chart-topper Apache 207, French pop star Maxenss, and Venezuelan trap music frontrunner Big Soto.

As for the themes the Burning Bridges EP addresses, DarkStarGraver is vulnerable from the start as he discusses fake love and cutting off dead weight on the defensive ‘Without A Heart’ and the EP’s title track ‘Burning Bridges’, and on ‘Last One Standing’, ‘Snakes & Ladders’ and ‘CodeRED’, he is in defiant self-motivational mode, while ‘Seeing The Signs’ sees him learning a hard lesson on trust and loyalty, with the Portsmouth rap artist coming to terms with the conflict in his life and letting go on ‘Walk On By’, and finding the peace he needs to move forward on ‘Winning Lane’.

Speaking about the inspiration behind his Burning Bridges EP, DarkStarGraver says, “this project explores the mental & spiritual changes I went through, my personal chrysalis from light to dark, the road from chaotic rage into compassion & tranquillity. It’s all about the paths we can take, even the track titles make reference to this, as well as the artwork, being a Japanese Torii Gate, which symbolizes the transition from the mundane into the sacred. Around the time of writing this ‘Burning Bridges’ project, I came to realize that the people I had close to me weren’t on the same vibration as me, when I was striving for more in my life.

I’m not afraid of showing my deepest vulnerabilities or being open with my emotions, I feel it’s important to share my personal truths, and while this can be intense, I want to be real with my thoughts and experiences. Making this EP was a moment of self-discovery for me, as I had to let go of the people and things that were no longer doing any good for me, in order to serve my highest purpose. I had to burn a couple of bridges along the way to find peace within myself, this feels like a real journey start to finish”.
