Nikki Williams- Rising Pop Starlet

I’m a sucker for good pop music so I’m always looking for who we could be hearing on the radio next month, Nikki Williams could be that pop star. Nikki Williams is another one of those singers who spent a lot of time writing music for other artists and makes the transition into becoming a performer herself. Other artists that took similar paths were Ke$ha, Neyo, and former sick new music artist Sia.

Nikki Williams co-wrote the hit song for Demi Lovato, Heart Attack. What’s strange about that connection is that Nikki Williams has a similar look and sound. Her sound also reminds me of Cascada. When you hear Nikki Williams talk you might be confused by her accent. Her accent comes from growing up in South Africa before moving to Nashville at age 16.

Another interesting fact that I have to mention is that she was married and recently got a divorce from Nicolas Cage’s son.

The song that is getting her a lot of attention right now is titled Glowing. It’s got a lot of electronic dance influence which should make it a popular track for hearing at a club or getting remixed by other artists. Give it a listen and let me know if you like her sound.

Rush Da Russian Rapper- Love me til you hate me

rushdarussianrapper

 

Rush Da Russian Rapper is a sick new rap artist that just burst onto the scene with “Love me til you hate me”.  In the song he raps about real things and calls out other rappers for their lyrics about money and sex.  When I first read the phrase “Russian Rapper”  I will admit I was not expecting the song I listened to sound as good as it was, not because he is Russian because it seemed like it was going to be just another gimmick used to compensate for the lack of lyricism, flow and song quality.  That is why I never judge a book by its cover even though I was very weary of the fact they compared him to Eminem like do to every white rapper to try to sell more singles/records.  After listening to the song I realized that there was no gimmick just an up and coming rapper with flow, lyricism and actual value in his song.  It is not fair to compare him to Eminem but Rush is definitely a sick new rap artist to look out for.  Enjoy the song!

 

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros – Home (2010)

Happy Memorial Day!! It’s a Monday and that means it’s Music You Might of Missed. This week I’m featuring a track that I stumbled across just within this last month. It sounded like a new song because it has that really popular folky sound that is trendy thanks to bands like Mumford and Sons, The Lumineers, and Of Monsters and Men.

However I was surprised to do some research and found out that this track was ahead of the curve and was actually released over 3 years ago.

The song has a real throw-back sound and is super catchy. When I hear this track it almost sounds like something I might hear in a Quentin Tarantino movie. I know it has been used in commercials but I couldn’t remember which one I heard it in. The track just feels like it would be a good soundtrack for a lot of situations so hopefully I do hear it in a movie in the future.

Anyway, enjoy your holiday and hopefully you are soaking up some sun and can put this track on.

Breaking Benjamin – Simple Design (2004)

bb

Let’s start Monday off right with some Music You Might of Missed: Sick Rock Artist, Breaking Benjamin’s singles such as “I Will Not Bow” and “Diary Jane” are quite often heard on rock stations but unless you dig deeper and listen to their entire album you will quite often miss a gem such as the song “Simple Design”.  This song is a perfect example of how a sick rock artist creates a sick rock song, blending together most of the best aspects of rock into one pretty awesome song.  Benjamin Benjamin is definitely a sick rock artist that makes great rock songs as demonstrated by the song below, Enjoy!

Emily Underhill

Emily Underhill is a composer, vocalist, and producer for electro, indie, ambient music. Emily is influenced by Sia, Apparat, Trifonic, Regina Spektor and The XX. Emily’s music is very chill and some what comforting in some ways. Makes me imagine the world or time just moving away in slow motion. Emily’s music is just so exquisite and many producers must feel the same way because even though she isn’t famous she has a ton of music out there that has been remixed, especailly for DubStep.

Lost In Me – lyrics
Any step you take

Like the frost you’ll see
I’ll be feeling it all
And you’ll be lost in me…

And you’ll be lost in me.
(2x)

Any step you take
(any step you take)
Any breath you breathe

Emily Underhill – Wait For The Night

Lupe Fiasco

lf

 

Welcome to Slept On Sundays, where we highlight sick music artists that have been slept on by the mainstream.  Our first sick music artist is Lupe Fiasco, who is without a doubt one of the most slept on music artists that is in music today.  There is really no better song to start this off with then “Dumb it Down”  where Lupe brings attention that his music is being slept on because he refuses to dumb down his music like most of the artists in the mainstream are doing to sell records.  This song has a comical undertones but a serious message encouraging us to not put up with the dumbed down music of the mainstream.  It sends a message that intelligence should be appreciate and applauded and we should not let anyone force us to dumb it down.  Enjoy!

 

 

C2C – French Turntable Group

C2C is an awesome group with a really unique sound. You’ve probably heard or will recognize their track “Down the Road” from a popular Dr. Pepper commercial that was in heavy rotation earlier this year. As is the case with a lot of commercials that use songs by new artists, you’ll often find a lot more to enjoy beyond the 30 seconds you heard from the TV.

C2C is a French group like Daft Punk and much like Daft Punk they have a deep understanding of combining electronic music with older music styles for a unique sound. The sound of C2C can be described as turntabilism mixed with gospel.

The group has been DJing together for a while and just released their first album last year titled, Tetra. It did not receive much attention in the United States, but it rose to number one in their native country of France.

Hopefully you take some time to listen to 3 of their tracks below. If you only have time for one song listen to the entire track that was used for the Dr. Pepper commercial, Down the Road. If you enjoy it and want some more, enjoy the track Happy featuring D. Martin. Happy is a heavily gospel influenced song so if you want something that is more electronic heavy you should enjoy the C2C track, Arcades.

Cash Cash featuring Lacey Schwimmer & Spose – Red Cup (I Fly Solo) (2010)

M.Y. M.O.M. Monday – Music You Might of Missed Monday is featuring a track by Cash Cash and friends. If you aren’t familiar with Cash Cash then you are missing out on one of the best pop bands of the last 10 years.

They had brief commercial success with their single in 2009, Party in Your Bedroom. After that one track fell off of the radio rotation I’m sure that most brushed off Cash Cash as a “one-hit wonder”. However. Cash Cash has continued to tour and produce music and their sound has developed since 2009 and I believe they are definitely poised for another commercial success very soon.

As for the track, Red Cup, I love this song because it sounds like a house party anthem. It’s so catchy and I can’t help but think about good times in my younger days when someone’s parents would go out of town for the weekend and the red cups would come out.

Give Red Cup a listen and if you like electro pop music please download more Cash Cash. I will post one of Cash Cash’s newest tracks below Red Cup to let you hear how their latest music sounds. Lyrics for Red Cup can also be found below.

Hey baby, why you being so shady lately?

Tell her bring her friends
Do it every night
Party never ends.
Like a drink that I can’t stop sippin’

Go tel your parents. I’m not awesome, I’m awful.
I won’t settle down, like jamestown, drive ’round hat crooked lookin’ for the brothel
Yeah man, I’m tired of being single.
Dude maybe I should settle down a bit
PSYCHE!!

Red cup, you know I fly solo
Yeah. Solo.

Skepta

Skepta is 30 years old born in North London. He is an English MC, Producer and DJ. His main style of music is Grime and British hip hop. He is very nice to listen too with feel good party songs and also hype club rap tracks! He is lyrical with his raps and can sing decently with some auto tune. P.Diddy reached out to Skepta when he was looking for new talent. Skepta said he thought Diddy’s phone call was a joke. Diddy had Skepta Feature on a Dirty Money song, Grime, which was definitely his biggest break yet. Skepta says his goal is to be successful in music to show young African Americans in the Uk that there is a future in music, if you work hard enough. I will definitely be looking for Skepta to break out in the U.S. in the future. Comments are welcome below, let me know what you think of Skepta.

Skepta – Amnesia

The Man – G FrSH ft. Skepta

Skepta – Ace Hood Flow

The Neighbourhood- California Cool

The Neighbourhood is an up-and-coming band out of California. The sound is kind of moody in a way similar to Lana Del Ray. After listening to some of their tracks I also am reminded of Pumped Up Kick’s artist Foster the People.

One of the cool things you’ll notice about this band, if you get into them, is that the majority of their artwork and music videos are all done in black and white. I like that they are choosing to have a signature art style to compliment their music.

Their single, Sweater Weather, has been getting them a lot of attention for the release of their first studio album titled, I Love You. The single has recently risen to #2 on the Billboard Alternative Chart.

Give a listen to Sweater Weather if you haven’t heard it yet and leave a comment on the site or our facebook page letting us know if you like The Neighbourhood. The lyrics for Sweater Weather can also be found below.

Sweater Weather Lyrics

All I am is a man
I want the world in my hands
I hate the beach
But I stand
In California with my toes in the sand

Use the sleeves of my sweater
Let’s have an adventure
Head in the clouds but my gravity’s centered
Touch my neck and I’ll touch yours
You in those little high waisted shorts, oh

She knows what I think about
And what I think about
One love, two mouths
One love, one house
No shirt, no blouse
Just us, you find out
Nothing that wouldn’t wanna tell you about no

‘Cause it’s too cold
For you here and now
So let me hold
Both your hands in the holes of my sweater

And if I may just take your breath away
I don’t mind if there’s not much to say
Sometimes the silence guides our minds to
So move to a place so far away

The goose bumps start to raise
The minute that my left hand meets your waist
And then I watch your face
Put my finger on your tongue
‘Cause you love the taste yeah

These hearts adore everyone the other beats’ heart is for
Inside this place is warm
Outside it starts to pour

Coming down
One love, two mouths
One love, one house
No shirt, no blouse
Just us, you find out
Nothing that I wouldn’t wanna tell you about, no no

[2x]
‘Cause it’s too cold
For you here and now
So let me hold
Both your hands in the holes of my sweater

Whoa, whoa…
Whoa, whoa… whoa
Whoa, whoa… [x2]

‘Cause it’s too cold
For you here and now
So let me hold
Both your hands in the holes of my sweater

It’s too cold
For you here and now
Let me hold
Both your hands in the holes of my sweater

It’s too cold,
It’s too cold
The holes of my sweater…
