“Face is truly a females’ anthem. It’s about getting dressed looking fly and most importantly being confident in your own skin.” – Steph Lecor
Steph Lecor returns with Face, a beat heavy single that kicks off in time for her appearance on Love and Hip Hop Miami. Established prior to the show, as an artist on Poe Boy Records and We the Best Music, many are familiar with Steph’s music and her social outings in the hottest clubs within South Beach, Miami. As a native, Steph began
in 2012 becoming 1/3 of the EDM/Pop trio Kulture Shock. This new song, takes us back to that trap heavy, hip-hop, EDM wave..
As part of We the Best Music, Steph released her first debut single “Saturday” charting on Billboard at #38. Steph was also the host of Complex’s show “Her Take.” This was a web series sponsored by Champs retail store. Her debut album is slated to drop in a few months.
After teasing us with “Childs Play” and “Circles,” in addition to performing a plethora of live shows throughout 2017, 8 Track liberates their highly anticipated LP Rewind. Described by the genre-bending DMV based collective as “the soundtrack of our lives over this past year…,” it features 12 unique yet cohesive cuts that will surely appeal to new and old fans alike.
8 Track on the project:
“The album opens up with candid clips of us just expressing our current state -whether it was a simple as wanting to go to the record store, as relatable as rent being due or as profound as recognizing moments in which our lives changed. Rewind tells these stories of overcoming personal struggles like in ‘Childs Play,’ dealing with relationship issues like in ‘BMW (Be My Woman),’ recognizing social issues within society like in ‘Family Ties’ and just exuding confidence in ‘Dope Game.’ All of this being done in 8 Track’s genre-jumping fashion that they describe as the sound of the times we live in.”

“Having an all around good time to music is a family pastime. Whether we were driving to New Orleans for the summer, hanging out with friends at the skating rink, at the park for a bbq, or out on a date, there was one common denominator. Music. It was the soundtrack to some of my life’s most memorable moments. My hope is that “Excited”, a song inspired by my love for skating, dancing, and live music, will be played during those same memorable moments in the lives of others. So Tie up your skates real tight, grab a partner, and get off the wall!” –Lloyd

En-Treeg Records and OuttaSpace Entertainment are proud to announce the release of Vanessa Bling‘s most intimate and personal project to date. Released today, Still Standing is a collection of six tracks that embodies every facet of who the artist formerly known as Gaza Slim has grown into: a determined business woman, a vulnerable lover and above all else, a survivor. Click here to listen to Still Standing. Along with the new EP, Vanessa Bling delivers the visual for the project’s first single, “10 Bags.” The high energy video showcases Vanessa as various interpretations of the tough talking boss chick whose diceptively sweet vocals flow over the “Bookshelf” riddim inspired track before demanding in no uncertain term that her opposition “run her check.” [Click here to watch “10 Bags.”] With songs like the melow, inspirational “Broken Heart” and the upbeat global vibes of “What To Do” standing in sharp contrast with the single, Still Standing paints a complete picture of who Vanessa Bling has become over the course for the last few years. In 2011, just months after her mentor Vybz Kartel‘s single “Clarks” catapulted Vanessa Bling and fellow newcomer Popcaan onto international airwaves, the Kingston native found herself embroiled in a high-profile legal ordeal that would take nearly three years to resolve. Standing accused of “perverting the court of justice” or interfering in Vybz Kartel’s murder trial, Vanessa would spend a total of six weeks between Kingston’s Central Village Police Station and the Fort Augusta Adult Correctional Facility before finally being granted bail. For the next three years, she found herself unable to travel and barely wanting to record music. Once the charges were released in 2014, Vanessa Bling set out her mind to do whatever it takes to regain her positionon the international stage. Still Standing makes that return official.
New York’s rap scene has undergone a facelift over the past few years. Gone are the days of a strictly rugged appeal, having been replaced with aesthetics that reach far outside of the city. Though the grittiness remains on full tilt in certain pockets, counterculture is still very prevalent. It is from this amalgamation that an artist such as Tally Bands is spawned. Hailing from the notorious Soundview & Throggs Neck neighborhoods of the Bronx, Tally’s musical sonics are heavy on the melodic side of things but with a closer listen it becomes clear that dark undertones are a consistent theme. Newly signed with The Orchard / Sony Music’s recently launched Urban Division, Tally Bands is ready to kick things into another gear. Today, he gives Elevator Mag the green-light to premiere his official debut single “How I Ain’t Die.” Produced by BlackMayo, the track finds Tally lamenting about the aftermath of lost love and almost going off of the deep end. For more on Tally Bands, check him out on Instagram at @IamTallyBands and follow him on Spotify, Apple Music, and all other digital streaming providers.
