#tbt ‘Ready’ by Tairey ft. Kirko Bangz

The only time I’ve seen Tairey live was in 2018 at Spirit for The City Music Festival, it was poppin’ – good energy, legitimate rapping and overall talent. I’m READY to see another performance, so I’m hitting today’s beat with a tbt on this track by Tairey ft. Kirko Bangz !

The chill-laidback production, piano, and beat Tairey and Kirko Bangz made for this song make it highly underrated, for real. I mean under 4,000 plays on Spotify is whack…

‘Neverland’ by Tommy Girl & Nikola

Mysterious, trippy, intriguing, apocalyptic??

A lot of thoughts come to mind when hearing this song, and I always enjoy songs that make me think.

Synthy piano rifts with cinematic, explosive yet subtle background sounds and bumpin’ bass make for a stellar production by Nikola @sincerelynikola

Tommy Girl matches her tone and energy perfectly with the sound put out in this track.

I’ve never been to Neverland, but no one is truly in control, so why not?

‘The Fool’ by The Hills and the Rivers

A sweet melody opens up with guitar, followed by timely violin and banjo.

The three instrumental pieces combined with double vocals makes this such a memorable piece.

I’d rather be the magician than the fool, but this song was too good not to highlight for today’s beat.

The Hills and the Rivers (Pittsburgh ya dig) released their latest album The Fool and The Magician on May 18, 2018.

Love the truth as much as you love yourself and others, and you will no longer be the fool.

OR to continue NOT being a fool, check out The Hills and the Rivers on all streaming platforms and check out ‘The Magician’ – a song and music video below!

‘Monkey Around’ by JACK SWING

Jack Swing released their latest single ‘Monkey Around’ along with a music video on December 31st 2018:

Immediately starting off with heavy bass and low-pitched lyrics, the edgy song gets off to a fast start.

The pace picks up with the chorus showcasing some funky guitar rifts during and after.

Then interestingly enough, the beat turns into a slow paced segment leaving the listener curious to where the song will be heading, only for it to get back to Monkeyin’ Around 🤘🏼

Check out the intriguing video above and check out more of Jack Swing on all streaming platforms.

‘Train of Thought’ by Brittney Chantele & Treble NLS

Brittney Chantele & Treble NLS dish out the thoughts that quite often all of us are going through. Our minds can run a million miles a minute, and our thoughts tend to never be silent. Yet, this song is all about letting that train pass, so that there can be clarity and serenity within our thoughts.

The two remind listeners that life is a balance, and it would be foolish to ignore our thoughts completely. It’s essential to hone in on the thoughts that help us grow, and let the ones that drag us down stay on the train that passes us by.

‘Honest Man’ by Fat Night

For 2019, all I want is to do the best I can. Man, does this song motivate me to do just that.

No matter what happens in 2019, one foot in front of the other is what I want. I want to succeed, fail, try, do, and all while doing that, I simply want to do the best I can while being an honest man.

Honestly (ha), I feel good about being an honest, good person towards others and even myself. But, if I’m being honest with myself, I have room to grow in 2019 from 2018. I want to move more in 2019 in all phases of life.

Movement > Stagnation.

Ambition > Complacency.

The funk, R & B, soul jams that Fat Night has created have caught my attention in only 24 hours of listening. With that…

Fat Night plays at Spirit Lodge in Pittsburgh tonight, and I can’t wait to see them play!

Local artist Isaiah Small and band Lofi Deplhi will be opening. Show starts at 9!

‘happyBB’ by MOD SUN

One of my favorite songs to listen to in 2018, I wish everyone happiness in 2019 and onward!

A crazy banger all about individuality, energy, and inner happiness.

Cheers to me not giving a shit about filming this song live and just vibing in the moment:

MOD SUN – Movement On Dreams Stand Under None

Whatever brings you happiness, go get it in 2019!

‘Bravo’ by Uptowne Buddha

Uptowne Buddha’s ability to mix rap, jazz, and hip hop to produce a soul, funky sound is what’s up – Bravo!

Uptowne Buddha is based out of Cleveland, and after seeing them perform in 2016, I have been following them ever since including a show in Pittsburgh this year.

My favorite song from them is ‘Written In The Stars’ but the trumpet, beat, and vibe to ‘Bravo’ is what makes it today’s beat.

Go check out Uptowne Buddha right now!
