[VIDEO] Tremayne- City Lights


Prior to one’s belief, the growing culture within Canada surpasses any thoughts of ‘The 6′ that may end at Drake. Known for the sports, arts, and other major events coming out of Canada, there has been an eye-opening conversation with people such as Tremayne that suggests we pay attention.

During the A3C Festival, we came across Tremayne, who is an upcoming artist and had a one-on-one conversation on how there are many things about Canada that one would not know about at first glance. We are well familiar with artists like Drake, The Weeknd, P Reign, Kardinal Offishall, Tory Lanez and newcomer Alessia Cara, who all  pride themselves in being from the Canadian grounds.

However, what appeals most to us is the grubby, not so mainstream culture that ties the Canadian territory to the US in more ways than one. Artists such as Tremayne relate to a more the grimey, not so polished upbringing of the culture. Don’t get us wrong, we enjoy the artists listed above. However, the grimey, culture-driven artists are where the foundation comes from. We plan to dig more into the culture of Canada, but today we release Tremayne’s newest video for his single “City Lights.” You get a raw look at the arts, dance culture, fashion sense, and lyricism we hope to familiarize you with soon. The video was directed by Miguel Barbosa, edit by Ryan C. Glover. Check it out below and follow up with Tremayne via Soundcloud

[VIDEO] Milly Roze- Beat of the Night (dir. Cakemaster)


Upon meeting R&B songstress, Milly Roze at a local café, one would assume she’s a bashful,  free-spirited individual who simply loves to live life and have fun. However, that isn’t the case for the Milwaukee bred singer/songwriter, who now resides in Nashville, TN. Promoting a youthful, yet sophisticated message through her music, Roze presents the listener with a welcoming introduction through her new single, Beat of the Night.

Influenced from new social media craze, Snapchat, Roze takes us on an adventure through the streets of Music City. After being scooped by her girlfriends, the trio visits various places that suggest an authentic ladies night out. Cakemaster 3000, who visually executes anything he’s apart of, does a great job capturing each scene of the video. Milly’s Beat of the Night is the first single off her upcoming project. If you’re located in our neck of the woods, Roze is hosting a “Beat of the Night” Party at Queen Ave Art Collective. Join the fun!

[VIDEO] Machine Gun Kelly ft. Victoria Monet- A Little More

Machine Gun Kelly is currently working on his new album. As the album is set to release later in the year, the Cleveland native releases his latest track “A Little More,” which came equipped with a visual. You catch a POV visual from MGK as he wakes up in a bed and heads out to venture through his hometown seeking to bring peace and positivity. It doesn’t work in his favor, however.


2 days ago, L$D, the fourth preview of A$AP’s upcoming album At.Long.Last.A$AP, was leaked along with some stunning visual edits directed by Dexter Navy.  The track, itself, is completely different from anything we’ve ever heard from Flacko.  It’s obvious he’s been going back into the archives of the 60’s and 70’s, and we are not complaining.  A watery guitar riff, reminiscent of some lovely flower child daydream, plays as Flacko sings a surprisingly deep and contemplative love ballad. The song is best understood in the context of the tripped out, slowed up, fashion love story that is this music video.  Accompanied by Ambush Clothing street-style star Yoon as his love interest, the two wander around the colorfully lit city of Tokyo, viewed from the dreamlike perspective of a drugged out hippie couple.  Check out the artistry.

[VIDEO] Scotty ATL- Cloud IX (Go Up)

He previously was on tour with fellow Atlanta native B.O.B.
