Troposphere Ep by St. Wave Touches Millennials BROUGHT TO YOU BY              THE GOOD TASTE PR

If you’re on the lookout for an MC with a mellow flow that forms a killer pair while experimenting with beats that swing from club joints to tracks experimenting with rap, you’re going to love St. Wave’s new EP Troposphere.  The EP’s title justifies the title as St. Wave is committed to his lyrics being a reflection of his true self, which come off as self-deprecating while the artist describes, investigates and questions trends on how he experiences the decadent lifestyle of his generation. He gives us a view of clubbing so vivid it might bring back some memories.    The mixtape kicks off with a psychedelic inward look, than take a turn into what keeps St. Wave afloat in the places where lust and the hustle rule. It’s hard not to get caught up in all of this, even if you’re not the type. He shows flashes of his full potential as an MC on “Echoes”, where “got a lot of raps, a lot of lines, not a lot of daps, a lot of lies – echoes most of the time” resonates on a deeper level. As St. Wave gets personal on all of the tracks, the project gets a heavier tone on “Live – Evil”, it righteously goes for more laid back vibe in the end track “But... x GettaGripGriffey”, explaining why St. Wave got into rap in the first place and giving out some pretty straightforward explanations on the why behind his points of view – he’s been raised by the night life, already seen bullets – but he still makes music for the sake of it. He’s clearly not trying to fit the mold and work as sincere like this is one of those subtle gem’s that might pave his way in the future. The instrumentals by Jay Villa change the pace just right for this to sound like the wholesome project it is.  Listen to Troposphere here:

Good Taste PR brings you Shayne's Guava Juice

Shayne’s single Guava Juice starts off as an up-tempo mojo track then switches to a melancholic beat in the middle of the song, as he changes the story into a self-confession of sorts. The minimalist trap beats let Shayne’s flow reach the forefront. What really stands out is his lyrical ability on a topic that’s covered so often – swag and relationships. The first part of the track talks about his adventure as a playa while the second part is about emotions, ending in sobering up and him realizing both “we’re just a drunken fantasy” – may be caused by all that Guava Juice. He’s obviously got the charisma and he’s photogenic, but that’s not all he’s about. He likes to have fun on beats and on camera but has also put in some work to polish his skill, as his tongue twister isn’t the basic nursery rhymes seen too often in new artists. The second beat is a mellow classic beat where Shayne does a little storytelling, switching his tone and his act, showing us his true reach as an MC. The flow adapts to the beat, but he drops a few notable lines like “Maybe she’s someone to lean on – chiropractor”.  His video is directed by ProLoveVisuals and he appears as a co-producer which means he’s got an eye for visuals. What makes it exceptional though is his body language and his sincere youthful appearance, which makes the video so engaging in the first place.

Check out his recently released mixtape, "Most Doubted" here:

Ayo Ma is one of my favorite spoken word pieces I've written. After noticing the reception I've always gotten from performing this poem, I knew I had to make a video. The countless conversations I've had, especially with women, inspired this visual masterpiece. I've spent many years silencing my own views on this oppressive patriarchal society...scared of being shunned by men and even basking in the comfort of my own privilege. As an artist who prides himself on using his art to critique the ills of world It would be a dishonor to not mention the hardships that women endure, especially if seen on a daily basis. This one is dedicated to all the women who endured any form sexual harassment while trying to walk peacefully to their destination. A special shout goes out to all my women in NYC, where it feels like catcalling is second nature. Written by Dilson - @Dilson_93 Filmed and edited by @victoriatarantino

Rouge Is Very Dapper 

Meet Rouge.... She has arrived and she's dropped a killer track dubbed “Dapper Dan."  Rouge always pulls up squad deep. Her dope crew of dancers revolve around her through neighborhood territory and midnight New York streets. The video was inspired by the fashion icon Dapper Dan as the whole team comes dress to kill. Rouge is straight fire with bars only a fine female would understand.

It is not every day we see a female rapper go above and beyond in creating different sounds and diversity. Rouge's rap and flow pattern is remarkably unique and distinguishable to her character. From her gritty demeanor to the underground New York sound meshed with 2017's trap production makes Rouge an artist we're excited about...and there's no doubt that her lyrics are hard af.

“Pretty, pretty, gotta stay pretty, that’s the only way that you stay petty.”

Some lines are so crack, we had to play it back a few times.

We root for dope Black women killin' it in the music game and providing an experience. Rouge is much more than an artist, she's a visionary as well, crafting the whole look and vibe of the video. - The GoodTaste PR

Started From Scratch brought to you by Good Taste PR

Started From Scratch is a song by Reem Ali and Poe Hussle’s brand new album. This release is a collaboration offering a fusion of classic and fresh hip-hop. The opener starts by takes a thick and soft beat, an innovatively distinctive backdrop that embraces a trendy and dominant piano part, and also a distinctly impressive hook section, uniting it all at once to produce a new and unique touch of originality. The vocal effect highlighted all through the song gives the track equally a modern and somewhat haunting feel, something that definitely enhances the strength and emotion of the portion that is in progresses.

The force of the music constructs and builds for amount of reasons, not slightest of it is because of the heartfelt and contemplative nature of the words. The production nourishes into it healthily and the quality of the entire album has got a definite vibe about it that appears to be soft and even downhearted. The resonances and illustrations all fit a certain strand, yet there’s a distinctive level of deviation among tracks.

The themes differ and the story telling stays to be very authentic and real to the artists involved through their own angles and practices. Permanently however, in relations of substance matter, the indication of starting from scratch, starting from the lowest, is prevailing – mentioned and resumed over and over again. The stability is approximately that further associates the whole thing together and enhances the disposition and in fact the genuineness and candidness of the album. 

Admirers of modern hip-hop would respond well to the tracks presented in collaboration. Instrumentally there have been plenty of positioned articulately yet imaginatively strong soundscapes to lose yourself within, and in terms of lyricism and personality there’s a lot to enjoy and appreciate.

Tay Sunchild brought to you by Good Taste PR

Tay SunChild is a Wisconsin born, Illinois raised vocalist, now currently manifesting & pursuing her dreams in NYC. Her musical roots  run deep from years of Baptist choir performance to background work for local independent artists. 

"Although growing up in a small community limited my resources and even discouraged my creative drive at times, the universe always allowed music and art in general to be my escape. As I grew into my own destiny, life's trials and tribulations pushed me to take my writings serious."

Those writings, whether it is poetry, stories or even notes from church or college, began to transform into sweet, sultry songs. 

"As a young girl once lost in the madness of my own world, my purpose for writing was to free myself. Now as a young Queen out in the real world alone, I write to heal. Not just for myself but for anyone who can relate to my lyrics and my story."

 Her goal as an artist is to compose and perform music that feeds more than the flesh but also the mind, spirit and soul.

" I want to use my voice to decompose topics that affect my life and the lives of my people while creating elaborate reflections of my journey along the way."

Her latest single, "Black Madonna" is an upbeat, anthem for the strong, ambitious and magical Queens making strides on a daily within the music industry. Starting off with strong lyrics like "I ain't gotta have a d*ck just to get respect" sets the entire tone for the female empowering tune.The song begins with the chorus which coincides with the original song that Black Madonna was sampled from, "Clouds Never Get Old" by Bas from Dreamville Records, but in a woman's perspective. The song is compiled of a looped hook and a featured rap verse from the engineer of the track itself, Mykle Desir.
