Cold War

NYC's Kiah Victoria emerges today out of the smoke and into the skies with her official debut "Cold War". Having been around the NYC music scene (spending a lot of time in the NYU scene to be specific), this artist comes ready for the world to embrace her as a true talent that will defeat the tests of time. "Cold War" comes smooth as silk with its chill R&B production that only compliments Kiah's phenomenal vocals that are almost sent from the heavens. One listen and you'll feel a rush of emotions hit you; you'll feel grief but happiness all locked into the melodies and lyrics. It's the perfect intro to who we believe will be one of the next biggest female stars to shine in the pop-sphere. It's a great first taste of what's to come in her forthcoming EP. Until then, embrace this one as it's bound to be the start of something wonderful.

Superstitious (Chris McClenney Remix)

Typically when a track receives massive attention the remixes tend to go unnoticed. In the case of MKTO's "Superstitious", this is the complete opposite. Teaming up with Maryland's Chris McClenney, this track launches itself into a club ready track that delivers a totally funky vibes laced with classic R&B. There's couldn't have been a better combination on a remix of this level. It's hot and heavy yet cool to the touch. The perfect jam to fuel those summer nights. Let your summer start below.

[PREMIERE] Little White Lies


NYC's Micky Blue first caught our attention last year with her stellar debut EP that was a power-packed bundle of excellence. Today, Micky is back with the premiere of the video for her latest track "Little White Lies". Teaming up with Michael Hazani (Qualia) and Harlan Silverman, this Jay Marcovitz track centers itself around the energies of a relationship sinking into a sea of lies. The video stars Micky herself, along with the Ilana Gabrielle and Ryan Castro, locked in a darkened scene that plays with notes of eeriness. It's a revenge seeking brilliance that stays true to Micky's DIY roots. The song itself shines with its 90s pop production and those dynamic vocals that shine through the darkness. Check out the premiere above, and prepare to have you dreams haunted in the best way possible.
