PartyNextDoor
PARTYNEXTDOOR is a 21-year old producer, songwriter and singer from Mississauga, Ontario signed to OVO Sound. He released his self-titled, critically-acclaimed mixtape in July of 2013 led by the singles "Over Here" and "Break From Toronto" on iTunes. PARTYNEXTDOOR contributed to "Own It" and "Come Through" on Drake's Nothing Was the Same album and would join him, Future and Miguel on the "Would You Like A Tour?" concert that fall. PARTYNEXTDOOR released his follow-up album PARTYNEXTDOOR Two July of 2014 led by the Drake-assisted single "Recognize" and then joined seven dates on the Drake V.S. Lil Wayne Tour, which was followed by his own sold-out 14 city "PND Live" tour.
Travis Scott
At only 20 years old, Travi$ Scott's music has already taken him quite a few places, even if he isn't famous enough to be recognized in any of them yet. He's lived on the east and west coasts, as well as the "third coast" of his native Houston, Texas, but has seen exotic locales while traveling with the most famous of his early fans, Kanye West. Since meeting early last year, the two have spent countless hours in the studio, the fruits of which can be heard on "Sin City," Scott's standout contribution to the G.O.O.D. Music compilation album, Cruel Summer. In his verse, Scott paints a vivid picture of a girl caught up in the allure of the fast life: She stepped into hell, cause when it got cold/Don't look in her eyes, you might see straight to her soul/Don't say yes to that good cause you'll never know/Cause we lost in the city, where sin is no biggie! he raps. The charge is something Scott himself can identify with, his music career having taken flight at an astronomical speed over the course of just a few short years.

Travi$ Scott grew up in Houston the son of a drummer and grandson of a music scholar, bitten himself by the music bug after witnessing the showmanship of late 90's rap videos from Mase and Diddy and then later on, experiencing the revolutionary production of Kanye West and Pharrell Williams. Scott began making beats when he was just 17 and sought out the tutelage of the local names he had access to, who just so happened to be dirty south hip-hop legends N.O. Joe and Mike Dean. It wasn't long after that he would venture out to New York to see what he was actually made of. "I'm really into depicting what's in my life," Scott says. "Anything I say in these verses, that's who I am. Those are real stories." Things didn't quite take off the way he imagined in New York, Scott having to couch surf when money got low, so he bounced to Los Angeles for another fresh start. The leap of faith paid off with Scott catching the ear of the "King of the South" himself, T.I., who signed him immediately through his GrandHustle/Epic imprint. With Scott working with T.I., it wasn't long before Kanye West got wind of him, both superstars still utilizing the young prodigy whenever possible.

And though he continues to work on music with his mentors, Travi$ Scott's own Owl Pharaoh EP is soon to set the world ablaze, Scott using everything he's learned from his forefathers to make the project he's sure will satisfy a rapidly growing fanbase. "People are gonna feel the imagery, what my life consists of, what the world of Travi$ Scott is," he says. "What is this kid thinking? Who is this kid? What is he trying to tell us? That's what they gone feel through these songs." So far they've had only morsels to chew on, but the demand grows with each leak like "Blocka," the song he co-produced with Young Chop and raps on with Pusha T, or the super-stylized "Quintana" video or the riot-inducing, Mike Will-produced, "Pus$$y," which features Chuck Inglish, Fredo Santana and Gunplay. Travi$ Scott has collaborated with some of the biggest names in rap and he hasn't even released his EP yet. "It's like becoming friends," Scott says of his music. "Once people get to hang around you more and more, they'll start to understand you. They'll either catch on or they'll get left behind." And soon enough, the world will know what so many of our favorite rappers already do: That Travi$ Scott is the future.
G-Eazy
G-Eazy
Dressed in black with his hair slicked back, G-Eazy adds a touch of class to hip-hop. For as traditionally dapper as he may be, he's got both feet firmly planted in the future. So what does the future look like for the producer, songwriter, and rapper? Well, it's just as bright as he is…



Raised in Oakland, CA, G-Eazy made the decision to enroll at Loyola University New Orleans because of their strong music industry program where he started to cultivate and craft his own inimitable style while still in college. For the budding artist, the partying wasn't nearly as important as creating. He missed more than a few keggers so he could lay down tracks in his dorm room for a series of buzz-generating mixtapes culminating in his 2011 breakout, Endless Summer.

With the release of Endless Summer, G-Eazy started to garner attention from both the backpackers and the mainstream. Diploma in hand, he hit 2012 running. During that summer's Warped Tour, he produced, wrote, and recorded what would become his full-length debut, Must Be Nice. Blending elegant production with a sly, slick, and smooth flow, the album landed at #3 on the iTunes Hip Hop Chart completely independent of a label.

That next chapter is already unfolding. 2013 saw G-Eazy complete his first headline tour, selling out shows everywhere from New York, Milwaukee, and Salt Lake City to Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. Looking more like a Tarantino hero than a standard MC, he stirred up a frenzy among the heavily female crowds, dodging a bras or two from the stage on a nightly basis. From the overwhelming success of the tour Paste Magazine named G-Eazy in their top artists to watch in 2013, High Times Magazine named him the "Best New Artist of 2013," and Lil Wayne tapped him to join the America's Most Wanted Festival nationwide tour.

The response has only grown more fervent, with G-Eazy's second nationwide headline tour leading to the release of his highly anticipated new album These Things Happen, which topped the Billboard Hip-Hop/R&B and Top Rap Albums Charts, also earning the #3 spot on the Billboard 200 and the Top Digital Albums Chart. The critics are in agreement with G-Eazy's legions of fans, with Billboard dubbing G-Eazy "The Young Elvis" in a multi-page feature story and The New York Times stating that G-Eazy is "clever, approachable and extremely legible" on These Things Happen. Even after an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers and VIBE's proclamation that "G-Eazy is, in fact, already a star, or at the very least destined to become one," his goal remains the same as it did when he first started.
Kaytranada (with Louie P)
Born in Haiti and raised in the city of Montreal, Canadian artist Kaytranada has experienced an explosive rise in the past couple of years with his irresistible production and live sets, but the hard work and success did not happen over night. Before touring the globe and amassing millions of hits online with his series of beloved tracks and mixes, the young man came up as a true disciple, absorbing hip hop and RnB culture since his childhood and finding ways to make the music his own.

Since the age of fourteen, when he first began to DJ and the following year when his brother introduced him to music production software, his output has been relentless. As he explains, "after he showed me the basics, from that day on I couldn't stop making beats," pumping out a beat a day for the next couple of years and soon after self-releasing a series of EPs and beat tapes that quickly began to expand his reach. Official releases on HW&W and Jakarta Records soon spread his name like wildfire and some instant-classic remixes by the likes of Missy Elliot, Janet Jackson, TLC, Danny Brown and others have cemented his reputation and his sound; an undeniable swing of the drums comparable to Dilla's, a signature soulful touch in the melodies, and a healthy dose of funky bass lines.

In the past year, he was approached by Brodinski to drop the single "Free Things In Life" on the hotly-tipped French label Bromance, has headlined tours in Europe, Australia and North America, and released his newest single and video "At All" which has already conquered dance floors worldwide and introduced his face to the world with an unforgettable video. Now, as he continues to bridge the gap between the dance world and hip hop/RnB, he is prepping a solo album for 2014 and a series of high profile collaborations that will confirm his position as one of the most important producers in today's musical landscape.
Vic Mensa
Born in 93, Vic Mensa is an independent recording artist from Chicago, Illinois who released his mixtape INNANETAPE online last year to critical acclaim. Vic has toured North America with J Cole and Disclosure and Danny Brown on his recent European Tour. Vic is also the leader and co-founder of the SAVEMONEY collective.
Flatbush Zombies
Flatbush Zombies
Shocking, hilarious, sometimes revolting, and yet completely endearing, the Flatbush Zombies are a genuine mystery in a musical landscape where few still exist. Meechy Darko and Juice, Brooklyn bred youth with a penchant for gold grills, Charles Manson and dropping acid, make up the high energy trio alongside producer and lifelong friend Erick Arc Elliott. The Zombies rose out of complete obscurity on the back of a synth heavy, weed laced banger entitled "Thug Waffle," an ode to marijuana and breakfast foods which immediately propelled them to the forefront of New York's fresh crop of talent. Their seamless recipe of can't-look-away visual appeal and deft lyricism had them opening for Slaughterhouse and Schoolboy Q within a month while peaking the interest of everyone from Lana Del Rey to VICE, and garnering them a show stealing guest spot on the first A$AP Rocky single, "Bath Salt." Their first full length mixtape, D.R.U.G.S. (July 2012), released with over 50,000 downloads in the first week and provides the backbone for their hypnotically abrasive and off the wall live show.
Hucci
Ollie O'Neill, better known under the alias HU₵₵I, is a Brighton-based trap producer.

"With a few BBC Radio 1 features under his belt, this up-and-coming DJ is already sharing sound waves with the likes of Diplo, Flosstradamus and Brodinski." - HypeTrak
Mick Jenkins
Jayson Jenkins, better known as Mick Jenkins (his stage name), is an American hip-hop recording artist born in Huntsville, Alabama on April 16th, 1991. He was then raised on the south side of Chicago, Illinois. He is a member of Free Nation, a hip-hop group that promotes creative thought without accepting narrow views imposed by the powers that be. This group believes that when you find a way to combat the status quo, you are free.

At an early age, Jenkins' mother introduced him to contemporary soul greats such as Prince, Erykah Badu, Sade and Jill Scott, thus promoting her son's musical sensibility. The young artist was charmed by the emotions carried out in this musical genre and later found hip-hop music to be another effective vehicle for these same feelings due its lyrical richness. As he grew older, his passion for music developed into an ever-increasing rap talent. This led him to enter a rap competition called "Who got Bars"During his sophomore year at the University of Oakwood in Hunstille, Alabama. When he was awarded second place, the prospect of a career in hip-hop crossed his mind and the chemistry he had forged with FreeNation throughout the competition inspired him to take his lyrical persuasions seriously.

In the Fall of 2012, Mick returned to Chicago and began attending YCA (Young Chicago Authors) a youth center where his first acapella verse caught the attention of local artist and leader of Chicago's Pivot Gang collective, Saba. Shortly after, the two collaborated on "Heaux" for Saba's 2012 mixtapeGETCOMFORTable.

In the spring of 2013 Mick Released a mixtape entitled Trees and Truths. It quickly became a local favorite, buoyed by acid jazz-influenced production, biblical allegory and lacerating lyricism. The project was by far his most lyrical body of work and caught the attention of Chicago's incipient gatekeepers. A few months after its release, a collaboration with Chance The Rapper and Vic Mensa came in the form of a single entitled "Crossroads", which was a summer hit.

In recent months, Mick has been receiving a lot of attention after the release of his single/ Visual "Martyrs". This song juxtaposes harsh truths about our society with a catchy hook, creating a thought-provoking single with various underlying messages and subtle notions. "Martyrs" has led people such as Timberland, among others, to reach out and praise Jenkins for his musical talent and intricate lyricism. Mick continues to find creative ways to convey his message and has recently released a new project entitled The Waters, which has grabbed national attention and received rave reviews.
Goldlink
To call GoldLink an aspiring rapper would not do him justice. The DMV-bred emcee accrued over three million plays on his Soundcloud and captured the attention of an entire industry with the first project he ever released.

GoldLink's sound doesn't throw it all the way back to the boom-bap, New York style, nor is it entirely a product of digital production. Instead, the music mixes the buttery grooves of 90's R&B with classic hip-hop breaks to give it an essence of nostalgia, and then turns on its head with bouncy, forward-thinking production style led by the likes of Ta-Ku and Kaytranda. Add that to GoldLink's ability to fill every pocket of the dynamic instrumentals he tackles with a roller-coaster delivery, and suddenly your head is bobbing to the self-proclaimed "future-bounce" genre.*

The racing mind of a 20-year old is usually not a romantically stable place, so you will often hear GoldLink battling the worries and woes of his love life. However, with the mental and social acuity of someone far beyond his years, it is not out of the ordinary to find GoldLink tackling a larger social injustice. Whether it be dealing cocaine, gun-toting friends, an absent father, or the general hardship of growing up in the ghetto, there is substance behind the sound.

With a catalog of less than twenty songs under his belt, GoldLink has still been able to receive the support of outlets like FADER, Complex, Noisey, and XXL. The recognition spread further than the web though, as GoldLink played several showcases at SXSW, a Los Angeles debut alongside future-bounce Soulection conglomerates, as well as numerous other concerts in New York and elsewhere on the horizon.

The short career of GoldLink thus far has shown him relative success, and with a summer filled with new music right around the corner, we are all excited to watch, experience, and dance to his progression.
Denitia & Sene
Smooth like smoke from the tip of a Cuban cigar, and as sensuous as morning love, electro-soul duo denitia & sene not only exude sexy through their music, they invent it. The Brooklyn-based musicians came together a year ago with a shared vision to bring truth and ingenuity to stylistic music, and they've held their ambitions high ever since. Simple. Rare. Sumptuous. Bold. They've been influenced by a range of sonic proclivities. Thus, their work is distinguished not by genre, but attention to free verse, and the magic that transpires between darkness and light. It's film noir for audiophiles – chic, hip and alluring – and together, they have broken down personal limits to forge a bond surpassing all expectations.

In true Brooklyn custom, the two artists met while attending a party one night at a spot they refer to as the "The Clubhouse," an old Victorian home serving as a residence, community space, and recording studio for a collective of local artists. Sene, a rapper, was looking for someone to sing hooks on his new album, and denitia, a singer-songwriter, welcomed the challenge. He gave her the scratch vocals; she nailed it and then some; and suddenly, they were part of the New York fairytale so many artists call a dream. It's Brooklyn at its finest – it's serendipity. It's denitia & sene.

After their initial collaboration went better than expected, denitia & sene decided to take it one step further and form a twosome, allowing sene, a Brooklyn native, to tap into his musical skills beyond hip hop, and denitia to explore a more sultry, theatrical side of her character. Both were inspired by a variety of artists and backgrounds, listing Sade, the Fugees, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, The Beatles, and Janet Jackson as a few of their shared favorites. Such diversity is reflected in the dynamism of their own sound, from smooth bass lines and reverberating vocals to synth-laden blues and abbreviated narratives. It's kind of like nothing else out there, and that is the intention.

denitia and sene's first EP, blah blah blah was released in August and presented by OkayPlayer.com, a three-track assortment blending definitive soul with electronic bebop. Their track "Casanova" won the attention of many music tastemasters, with Fader magazine calling it "an effortless, snuggly gem primed for late Saturday mornings tangled in rumpled covers." Because their partnership has been effortless and magical from the get, they intend to continue down the same track, aiming to create authentic and intuitive music that is accessible to a wide variety of people. No fronts and no concessions – it follows only the rules they set for themselves, compromising nothing that might contradict their signature sweet panache.
Metro Boomin
Metro Boomin is an American record producer from St. Louis, Missouri, and now based in Atlanta, Georgia. Metro is best known for producing instrumentals for rappers such as Future, Ludacris, Gucci Mane, Young Thug, and Wiz Khalifa, among others. The 20 year-old is coming off of his latest single, "Chanel Vintage" featuring Future and Young Thug from his upcoming project Metro Thuggin' , and is poised to take the rest of 2014 by storm.
NADUS
It's safe to say that New Jersey, and specifically Newark, has not been shown in the best light in the public eye. With extremely high crime, murder and unemployment rates, NADUS seems to bring light and a positive message from within a city fighting to rise above this stigma. 22-year-old Nadus Bright, Jr is a true cultural product of his city. He's used the negative surroundings of his upbringing to shed a positivity light from his neighborhood to global appeal.
The THREAD co-founder, Jersey Club and future bass pioneer, was co-signed as a Brick Bandits member at the young age of 15. With support from G's like Diplo, Dirty South Joe, Sliink, Tim Dolla, it's time for NADUS' story of life, music, and triumph to shine Bright >
