NEW MUSIC: @Jamie___XX x @PopcaanMusic x @YoungThug – I Know There’s Gonna Be


Jamiexx

Considered an odd collaboration, today’s new music comes from UK Producer Jamie XX, Dancehall artist Popcaan and Rapper Young Thug. Titled “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times)“, this is a single that celebrates life and enjoying it to the fullest over some very wonderful production and samples that add to the theme. For those who aren’t familiar with Jamie XX, he’s the producer behind the late Gil Scott-Heron’s “I’ll Take Care You” which was sampled for Drake’s “Take Care” single. An odd combo but a great listen from the three different artists. Check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

PRESS RELEASE: @EladGideon’s New Militant Sound


Elad Gideon

Recording artiste Elad Gideon showcases his raw and militant style with the release of his new single ‘Wile Life’. The song produced by himself, Douglas Flannigan and Farel Richie was released on SoundCloud recently. The highly anticipated single, is a tribute to resilient Jamaicans who have found themselves affected by the harsh realities of the society. Elad explained, “The people in our society have become almost beast like in order to survive their everyday struggles”.

Elad grew up in the town of May Pen, Clarendon. His stage name begins with his first name ‘Dale’ being reversed to spell ‘Elad’ and then coupled with the Hebrew word Gideon that means ‘Mighty Warrior’. His name highlights his calculated, militant, rebellious and nonconformist personality that he fervently portrays through his music. Elad’s music is packaged and presented on a live music platform and is an unorthodox fusion between reggae, dancehall, hip hop, and some alternative rock/RnB influences. Elad added, “My music is limitless. It is not restricted to any one genre but is rather a mixture of all the genres of music that I love. My music also speaks to those relatable topics, thoughts and ideas that are rarely highlighted in Jamaican music.”

The ‘Wile Life’ artiste has also produced singles such as ‘Just Life’ and ‘The Worst’, both of which are now available on his SoundCloud profile, www.soundcloud.com/eladgideon. Elad is set to start his promotional trail for ‘Wile Life’ and is eager to premiere its video. The video will be shot and released this summer.
