Ben Deignan releases the first single off his forthcoming debut EP to be released in 2013. “Addiction,” was previously recorded for one of Deignan’s mixtapes, but when a friend heard the rough recording she convinced Ben to re-record the track. The single is a story of a man who thirsts for a woman so badly that it becomes unhealthy. For the video Ben linked up with Jason Lee Denton of Tesla Rossa whom he shares management with through Bowe Inc. out of Atlanta, GA. The treatment was shot throughout downtown Nashville, TN during a cold winter night.
As of yet, Jones 2.0 may not be a name you are familiar with, but as part of the independent urban UK scene, the 22 year-old rapper will certainly be hot on people’s lips by the end of 2013. The young musician has spent the last six months playing gigs such as the ‘Live and Unsigned’ finals infront of a 10,000 capacity crowd, as well as The Comedy Pub Leicester Square, Vibe Bar Brick Lane, Beck Theatre Hayes & Berties Bar Wimbledon, as he continuously works hard to perfect his live show performances.
“I’m not trying to make it big off of a certain gimmick. I’m just trying to be me and make the music I’d like to make,” says Jones, as he tries to stay away from the cliche rapper tag. Taking his inspiration from the likes of Kid Cudi, it is the rappers unique and engaging lyrics and honest view on life that sets him out from the other unsigned rappers out there.
‘Bright Lights’ is the first official release by Jones 2.0, and sees him present a hard-hitting piece of rap music. To accompany the release, the talented MC now presents the incredible visual for his debut single, taking viewers through the Bright Lights of London city.
Jones 2.0 is currently working on various new projects which are set for release later this year, so keep your eyes peeled.

The talented Jade Alston releases a follow up to her debut EP, Single on a Saturday Night with “Sunday Morning: Single on A Saturday Night Pt. 2.”
The 10-track EP deals a little with heartbreak and moving on, but mostly focuses its attention on love and attraction. With records that pull from 90s R&B, soul, funk, and even a little bit of reggae. Alston provides a range of powerful ballads and infectious upbeat tunes on the EP.
This is the official, unofficial release of the shelved “Beats N Tetas” – if any of that makes any sense. Peace to the homey Mike Black (www.twitter.com/MikeBlack_), produced the project in its entirety. This got that gritty 90′s east coast vibe through out, a must-listen to hip hop heads all over! Why the title “Beats N Tittys” – definitely no disrespect to women, but it’s the 2 things I love in life – music and women. Its kind of hard to sugarcoat that but its a raw album for the raw consciousness, no party concepts or molly/lean references included. Please be on the lookout as well next month, 3/15: LoadedPencilzEP

E4RTH is the multimedia art/music project from songwriter/producer Alan Astor. During the winter of 2010 when the blizzards were hitting hard in Brooklyn, N.Y., the isolation of several feet of snow and freezing temperatures became the catalyst for a new creative outlet. Alan took refuge in his apartment to watch the glorious digital nature scenes of BBC’s Blue Planet HD series with the sound off, the seemingly existential party music of his favorite radio station (Hot97) served as the soundtrack. In a moment, E4RTH was born.
