Versis’ first mixtape was released in January of 2011, called Hate To Say It, and garnered legitimate recognition from established industry professionals, including Dave being named the Young Money Artist of the Month a little while back. He has since played various shows, highlighted by his late-August sellout of the popular Parkdale spot Wrongbar. His upcoming album is executively produced by accomplished Toronto producer Arthur McArthur.
In anticipation for PSALMS, Versis is in the midst of releasing a trilogy of songs unrelated to the tape just for the fans. His first release of the three was dropped on October 31st, and has since attracted over 16,000 youtube views and a slew of new fans on twitter. The song, entitled Bon Voyage is Dave’s take on a Childish Gambino beat.

I’m afraid to fly, and I don’t know why
I’m jealous of the people who are not afraid to die

Acclaimed New Zealand combo SOLA ROSA are bringing their special blend of hip hop, reggae, jazz, Latin, soul and funk to lucky U.S. audiences for the first time later this month, but first, they have a special treat for us all. Yesterday the group’s second U.S. debut video for “Love Alone,” premiered on Baeble Music.
The stellar piece features Spikey Tee (Jah Wobble, Mr. Scruff, Bomb the Bass) and the band inside of different definitive album covers. You’ll never know which one will turn up next as SOLA ROSA brings each one to life. The artsy and creative video is certainly an eye catcher, leaving you wanting more. Waiting to hear what’s next in line from the group.
Eager U.S. fans will also get the full SOLA ROSA experience in a matter of days.
Starting November 29th, frontman Andrew Spraggon will take the stage alongside Spikey Tee and Lila Tomlins (Kiwi vocal sensation) for a Sound System tour of ten North American cities, beginning in New York, NY and ending in San Diego, CA. SOLA ROSA is ready to prove to the U.S. audience that they have that special element it takes to make it in the ever-growing musical world.
SOLA ROSA’s debut North American album, Get It Together, was recently released on October 11th, 2011, and already garnered a mention in the Village Voice, and praise for Pop Matters and Baeble alike. This is not surprising, as the album has stayed at #1 in NZ for over four months.
SOLA ROSA frontman Andrew Spraggon ignores the niceties of genre boundaries and opts instead to blend his diverse influences into an otherworldly aural experience. Since 1999 he has been honing his craft by keeping good company on the road and in the studio, eventually earning himself a nomination for Best Producer at the Vodafone NZ Music Awards in 2006 and 2009. Get It Together was nominated for Best Electronica Album, and the album’s second single, ‘Turn Around’, was nominated for Best Video.
Raised in the Roxbury neighborhood of Boston, a city not known for its hip hop, Moufy has quickly burst onto the local, national and international scenes with the fastest growing fanbase of any urban artist in New England. The 20 year old Dominican’s vast experiences from growing up in an area with one of the city’s highest murder rates to going to competitive private schools give him the ability to make crossover songs and appeal to a world audience. Since he released his first project ever, City Dreamin’, in February of 2011, Moufy has gone on to sell out a 600 person venue in Boston (8/22); get press on the cover of the Boston Globe and Boston Phoenix; be the main opener for Mac Miller at the Boston Urban Music Festival in front of 50,000 people, do a song with country mate David Ortiz of the Boston Red Sox, accumulate more than 1.5 million youtube views as well as a combined 30k mixtape downloads and get his song Boston Lights played at every New England Patriots home game. The Star Gang movement is quickly taking over Boston and spreading throughout cities internationally. Get connected to Moufy’s movement by liking his Facebook page, following him on Twitter (@Moufy617) or checking out his website at www.Moufy.com. 2012 is going to be a big year, GET READY!

With the November 22nd release date of You And What Army just under a week away, Tanya Morgan is excitedly rolling out the EP’s latest single, “We Rollin’,” a track that will serve as the final leak before street date. Donwill and Von Pea have chosen to release the FCC clean version of “We Rollin’,” so you can share it with your grandma or the neighborhood kids worry-free, but fans need not fret – the full, explicit version will be available with the release of You And What Army.
“It’s about the road life, and some of the perks and indulgences that come with it,” says Von Pea about the Brizzo-produced song, which was inspired by real events and experiences from past tours. With lyrics like, “And if you see me in your city then take off work/ You got a pretty pair of t——s then take off shirt,” the unapologetic and funky jam transports the listener to a post-show party, where Tanya Morgan is found wading in a baby pool full of rumbling piano bass lines, handclaps, and supreme DJ cuts, compliments of DJ Low Key.
Download “We Rollin’” for free here: http://media.audibletreats.com/Tanya_Morgan-We_Rollin_Clean.mp3
