Nile_ (Deonte Neely) - Post-Modern Abyss ep & [Adult Swim] (video submission)

Untitled.png

Today’s music submission comes from Nile with one of his latest ep’s “Post-Modern Abyss.” We think the entire ep is great to listen to, but our personal favorite is the second track, “Kismet.” The chords in the song are beautiful. Also, the production is smooth and soft, a little slower than the rest of them, but it works for what he’s talking about in the song.

“Post-Modern Abyss” is available on all streaming platforms. We suggest you listen to it and let us know what y’all think!

& shoutout to the #NorthSide #ganggang

Satori IV - Took A Risk (Video Submission)

Have you ever watched a music video and immediately knew it was a hit, like a legit bop? That’s exactly how we felt after watching Satori IV’s video “Took A Risk.” The production of the video itself gets a round of applause and not one, but two hand claps, OK! The black and white visuals really gives it a vintage feel, making the few scenes of color really pop and stand out. And we can all relate to it because c’mon, everybody gotta take a risk sometime!

“Satori IV returns with his second single for his Underdog Season project, Took A Risk. With visuals to assist, Satori brings the essence of what it means to be an underdog and how to use it to your advantage. As the Milwaukee native traverses through L.A., he reminisces on the sacrifices and risks made to get thus far. Produced by frequent collaborator 4Keys, the 808s carry the crooners melodies into the leap of faith that some are afraid to take.”

You can find “Took A Risk” on all platforms. And make sure you support Satori IV’s upcoming project, Underdog Season, dropping this month.

Now add this song to your playlist, get in ya car and ride out!

Tae Spears - Night Cap (Video Submission)

Today’s submission is from the talented Tae Spears and when y’all hear this...whew chile...can we say relatable?!

Tae Spears has created a beautiful introspective story in his latest video titled "Night Cap." This is a great display of romance and lust with clear vivid imagery, soft sensual lighting and a close visual of Tae and his main character played to be his wife. Coupled with lyrics that flow through a male's internal rationale of losing the one he loved through his own bad decision making. How many fellas can relate?

All in all, this video is definitely one with amazing replay value, thanks to the combo of Tae Spears and Damien Blue.

The production of this video is top notch and really proves how hard Milwaukee goes in the music scene. Keep up the great work because you got us all watching.  *prayer hands emoji*

Clear Pioneer - What I Already Am

The new era of Indie Pop is here with the Milwaukee music group Clear Pioneer! The members, Grant Clementi, Jesse Carl, and Kyler Schmor, have made their way on our radars since winning multiple talent showcases in 2018.

“Mastered by Timothy Wolf of Four Giants Studio (N43 records), their new single “What I Already Am” plays on the theme of 1980’s synthwave with a modern pop twist. The driving rhythm section, paired with haunting synths, paint a soothing backdrop for a familiar and tumultuous narrative.”

The video for “What I Already Am,” filmed and directed by Julian Valentine, welcomes fans to the band's refreshingly dark alternative universe; hypnotic lighting and colors draw the viewer in to this new, mysterious world.

If you don’t know them yet, you’re going to want to because they are on the rise. You feel me? #youfeelme.

Kaylon Raps - Solitary

Today’s submission was sent in by Kaylon Raps! At CopyWrite, we want artists to be able to communicate their creative message the way they want it to be received. Music is always up for interpretation, however for this review, there was no better way to introduce you to Kaylon than to let his words speak for himself. Vibe out! ✌🏽

“Sometimes we don’t realize what we have until it’s gone. Solitary is a song that describes the struggle between our natural ability to Love, yet the rejection of that same Love. An endless battle within oneself until something valuable is lost. It's only then do we feel the regret.  

Solitary is available on all streaming platforms and will be featured on Kaylon's upcoming debut EP entitled "Everything In Between", which is set to be released on October 23rd, 2018.  

Milwaukee-native, Kaylon Raps, aims to move a culture with paradigm shifting messages to excite and inspire the listener's ear. His journey towards reshaping the identity of a culture through music began when he was 21. Kaylon crafted his first mixtape in the Fall of 2012 (Despite Opposition Vol. 1), followed by the release of Despite Opposition Vol 2, in December of 2014, known most notably for the track “Jesus Piece” which gained over 25 thousand listens when featured by Rapzilla, showing early on, that Kaylon was an MC to be reckoned with.

The transformation of his music over the years has been evident. Treating each project like the pages of a diary, Kaylon’s music reflects his deepest personal experiences; the very experiences that have helped to shape his unique sound. This unique sound is both familiar and distinctive—greatly influenced by classic hip hop, jazz and the gospel melodies of his youth.”

unnamed (3).jpg

“Dom McNeal is an up-and-coming hip-hop artist from Milwaukee who has a flow that really stands out and is hard to compare to anyone else. With summer vibes and being produced by Tyso Sprme and Deuce LB$, it’s definitely a project that’s opening ears.”

...and this song has us listening!

‘Lake Drive’ is the second track from McNeal’s latest project ‘SummertimeDOM’ and it’s a song we can all relate to -taking those summer drives to the lake with ya boo, just chillin’. But also the idea of us all having dreams and wanting the most out of life. The production of the song is smooth with melodic snares carefully placed within the beat for a nice soft touch.

And we can’t forget to mention the dope visuals of the downtown 414 skyline in the background.


Dom McNeal’s project is available on all streaming platforms, make sure you check it out!

Chloé - Outta My Face ( Feat. Chay Milan and Frances King)

Today's submission comes straight from one of our Chi-town neighbors, Chloé.

“Outta My Face” featuring Chay Milan and Frances King has that soft but punchy production that Chicago is known for. With wispy undertones, “the ladies pay homage to those summer vibes riding with your crew or a side piece in a cool ride”.

We love to hear the ladies come through with some witty bars & attitude! #WeSeeYou

As we break away from those summer nights (it just feels so far away *tear*) and get straight back to business, lets put this track in rotation!

Oh and yo... “Back up out of my face” lol
