We have so much love for Stanaj, and now he releases his second EP, From a Distance. Stanaj just gave us his first EP, The Preview, back in August which is exactly what it was. From A Distance is giving us a more in depth look at what this guys career is going to become.
The EP gives us 4 all new tracks, and the remix of Romantic which he has previously released. In just 4 tracks, Stanaj has managed to captivate us with all his talent being showcased. Below we included our favorite track off the EP, “Changed”, which is just amazing on all levels.
We have said so much about this talent in previous posts, but the best thing for you to do right now is just dive in to this amazing EP. Catch Stanaj on tour with another one of our favorites, JoJo, in the next few months! Tickets here!
If you haven’t seen our Ones to Watch 2017, we gave Stanaj the Number 1 spot, for a very good reason. Check out the rest of the talents so you don’t miss out!

Just days after we announced our Artist Spotlight for the month of August, he goes and announces his debut EP. Stanaj gives us The Preview, a short but epic EP of what is just a taste to come.
It features four very different tracks, one you may have heard from our feature, “Romantic”. The biggest standout for me is his obvious vocal talent, but don’t let that take away from the many other talents this guy has. The production, the lyrics, the flow, everything just fits perfectly to make some serious good R&B flavored vibes.
Go buy this, support some soon to be huge talent. It is even available for stream on Spotify.
Been a big supporter of M.O for quite some time now, and they have finally given us some new music in the form of the Good Friends EP.
M.O has been slowly improving their craft and finding exactly where they fit in, and this EP is everything we needed in the industry. There are times where it sounds like a modern version of Destiny’s Child, the harmonies are just fantastic.
The EP has everything from slow jams to some serious bangers, all the while keeping a very 90’s vibe. There is a huge standout on this EP, and that comes with the title track, “Good Friends”. There is some serious production going on there, and we have to shout out to Bless Beats for that. I’m not taking anything away from the EP has a whole though, it is fantastic from beginning to end.
Take a listen below!
If you don’t know the talent that is Jody Brock by now, I highly suggest you dive in right now!
I have been following his career for quite sometime now, and I am highly impressed with everything has put out. After what feels like forever, we finally get an EP that was definitely worth the wait titled ‘Phoenix’. The one word I would use to describe Jody Brock and this whole EP is “Raw”. His sound is verging on rock with a soul which is definitely a sound we don’t have anywhere right now. If I had to compare it something, it would definitely be The Black Keys, but don’t let that get stuck in your head, because Jody adds so much more to that sound. Each track has a very distinct sound but keeps a very rock vibe going for it. I can’t even begin to describe the vocals on this EP, I thought I had heard it all, vocally, from him but he continues to impress.
Although I love the EP as a whole, I have to admit ‘User’ is definitely a standout track for me, so much depth and meaning behind every word in that song. I have posted the video for the song after the jump, which I highly suggest you watch right now!
Thank you Jody Brock for creating this, and I definitely hope this gives him enough momentum to cross over and play some shows in the USA here soon!
After falling in love with his talent, go buy the EP right here —–> Phoenix EP

Ladies and Gentleman, we finally have some real talent from the USA, and I’m super excited to share this with you!
Heard a little buzz going around from this EP, so I decided to give it a spin and let me tell you, I wasn’t the least bit disappointed. Brayton Bowman is a sort of soulful, yet funky mixed with a little R&B talent. This short 4 track EP doesn’t do justice to the amount of Talent this guy has. I don’t really know anything about him just yet, but I intend to keep a close watch on him, he is just getting started and I can’t wait to hear what he has in store.
YES YES YES
BOOTS has slowly made his way on to my radar after some fantastic releases. After finding out he basically produced Beyonce’s newest album, I was very intrigued to see what he was able to do on his own. He released ‘Howl‘ and many other tracks that I have grown to love and keep on repeat. Now he finally graces us with his ever so smooth and haunting mixtape WinterSpringSummerFall, and even though I have just begun to listen to it, I can tell, just like everything else BOOTS has put out, this will not disappoint!
favorite track so far: No More
