Grammy nominated artist/songwriter, Ant Clemons, moved across the country from New Jersey to Los Angeles only a couple of years ago in pursuit of his dream career. He started 2018 by writing a song a day in exchange for a floor to sleep on. By June of that year, he landed a feature as the iconic voice behind Kanye West’s hit single, “All Mine” and found himself atop the billboard charts. Clemons’ overnight success is years in the making. As the epitome of a “rags to riches” story, the artist spent nights on park benches, couch hopping, and using songwriting as a means of currency.
Today, he is recognized as one of the most in-demand songwriters and upcoming artists, due to his work with Beyonce, Camilla Cabello, G Eazy, Pharrell, etc. In late Feb of 2020, Ant released his debut EP, “Happy 2 Be Here,” which is currently nominated for best r&b album for 2021 Grammy Awards Ceremony.
Most recently, Ant released his single “Better days” ft. Justin Timberlake, which they performed together at the 2021 Biden/Harris Inauguration.
Gov Ball After Dark x Mercury East Present… CHIIILD with Shungudzo
Beth Million with Doov, Zay Lewis
Doov has always carved his own sonic path, writing and producing his own projects since he was 15 years old. The versatility in his influences is reflected in Doov’s discography with tracks veering from hip-hop to pop rap, afro beat to soul, jersey club to grime, while always embodying his own unique style.
The 22 year old rapper and producer from East Brunswick, New Jersey released his debut album, Separation, on March 15th, 2019 reaching nearly 300k total plays within the first two months.
Entirely written and self-produced by Doov, Separation is an album about reflection that will resonate with anybody going through change and growth, especially individuals in the process of becoming an adult.
The title of the album alludes to Doov’s separation from his previous self as he raps about transitioning away from previous friendships, relationships, insecurities, behaviors and the mental and emotional states that come with leaving a past life. As his first full length project, Separation also marks Doov’s separation from other musicians as he evolves into his own unique artistry. Equipped with sonic versatility, melodic brilliance, and elevated storytelling, Doov brings it all together for this expansive hip-hop album filled with anthems, bangers, and fresh sounds.
Doov has recently played opening sets for Pop Smoke, G Herbo, and 100 gecs, and continues to headline shows throughout New York City at Bushwick Public House, Mercury Lounge, The Cutting Room, Paper Box NYC, Diviera Drive, and Bowery Electric.
Angélica Rahe with Jake & Abe
Angélica split her childhood between Spain, Japan and landed in the U.S. as a young teenager, gaining the musical influences of Sade, Jorge Drexler, John Mayer and Erykah Badu along the way. While her early singles “Pa’lante,” which Target selected for its 2020 Latin American ad campaign, and “Extranjera,” which touches on identity and the experiences of immigrants, show an impressive range of vocal talent and songwriting, it’s the intimacy and sensuality in her debut album, REINA, that has media and fans likening her to artists ranging from Sade to Solange.
On Valentine’s Day 2020, Angélica gave the world her debut album, REINA, which speaks to her personal journey of reflection, rebirth and self-love. REINA, recorded across studios in Brooklyn, features Angélica on vocals and guitar with Cleon Edwards (Erykah Badu, Jill Scott) on drums, Jake Sherman (Nick Hakim) on keys, and Nick Clark (Kanye West, H.E.R.) on bass. Her North America tour scheduled to begin in mid-March 2020 to support the album was cancelled due to COVID-19.
Jake & Abe
It’s got the temperature of the yacht rock paradise that everyone today longs to visit, but the details make it more than just a retro recreation. No one should be blamed for reaching for comparisons to Hall & Oates, but the admixture is a little more unexpected–rather than replicating an album from the 70s, they’re formulating something that never quite happened. Imagine Stevie Wonder producing a Loggins & Messina album–or The Isleys working with Captain & Tennille. Don’t dismiss the Captain! “Muskrat Love” was diaphanously funky. Abe and Jake would understand.
You can tell the duo has session experience–they show the taste and restraint that comes from playing behind greats, from doing more with less, from crafting a statement out of something small. The songs are breezy and easy but each has its little ingenious touches. The way a bassline is configured against the beat in “Selfish Endeavor”; the way a chorus turns around and melts into the bridge on “It’s Easy.” They tuck the magic tricks and sonic surprises into the folds of pop songs, which reminds me a little of 10cc, but with way less layers in the cake.
