Join us as we feature guests on our Weekly show.
Multi-talented entertainer Elozonam came back to the PGM Club after 2years to premiere his debut project “A Weird Mix Of Trumpets And Hi-Hats.” He also broke down how he self-taught himself everything from audio production to video editing etc. In his words, “Learning is Key.”
We finally caught up with the new wonder boy JujuBoy Star, who has been on our online radar for some time now. We also got a chance to chat with the rap duo Teeto Ceemos & Rae Slick about their long-awaited new rap project titled ‘LATAARO‘.
New acts are popping up every week and it’s our mission to unveil them as it happens.
Abuja based act, Kyrian Asher has proven himself time and again as an act to look out for. With his artistic depth and distinct style, experimenting with different sounds, the multi-talented act has been steady with his delivery of premium quality releases over the years. The singer, songwriter, and producer is one to wear his heart on his sleeves, coating his stories and experiences in piercing melodies that are easy to sink to.
His 2018 releases Noctem Drive Neon and Jokers & Joyrides are the latest testaments to his undeniable talent and artistry.
On ‘Jokers & Joyrides’, Kyrian turns his romance with his demons into poetry. He is clouded by his thoughts and he sinks into it with his greens to help him fly and enjoy the night. Later in the song, Kyrian acknowledges his hiatus but assures us that he is nowhere to stay.
Opening with auto-tuned hums, ‘Noctem Drive Neon’ is an anthem of resilience. On the record, he is relaxed but assertive and abrasive as he openly declares his refusal to succumb to industry pressures for mainstream acceptance. With his chest-thumping affirmations, this record feels like a soundtrack to the current state of our creative industry where creatives are refusing to cave into the laid down structures and patterns but staying true to their art to produce something genuine.
Given the industry climate at the moment, these records might not be necessarily set up for radio or commercial success, but they come highly recommended from us PGM Club as a sound that will leave you awestruck. If you love good music, you’d definitely love these songs.
Noctem Drive Neon
Jokers & Joyrides
Burgeoning alternative sensation, Eri Ife has released a new single titled ‘Let Me‘ featuring Wapo. This is his first offering since the double release “November” which surfaced on the last day of the month it was titled after last year.
This record is produced and engineered by JayTrix (PsychoTerror) who provides a smooth blend of Afro-pop, folk and Congolese Rumba.
‘Let Me’ is a groovy tune which is rich in both Western and African instrumentation, with cool percussions, a stifling bassline, and piercing guitar riffs. Over the scintillating production, Eri Ife and WaPo provide a love number, professing love and affection to a lady who they hope to deliver from the effects of the toxic relationship she is currently in. The pair both promise to treat the scarred lady way better if allowed to.
This is indeed a very lovable tune that reinforces Eri Ife’ s position as one of the acts to look out for this year.
What’s new in Music this week? That’s the question we aim to answer.
Nigerian-Bohemian act, Stiques who also goes by the name ‘Stiques the god’ is a multi-talented creative. Born in Kaduna, the singer, songwriter, producer, audio engineer, and sound design artist has always sought to project his culture through his music. And his latest effort, ‘Sani Abacha’ is no different.
Supremely-gifted Abuja based creative, Tay Iwar has consistently proven himself as a niche artist who is carving out a name for himself through his unique and intriguing sound. His latest single ‘How’ is no exception. Produced by DoOzyBeatz, ‘How’ is off Tay’s highly anticipated debut album, “Gemini” due for release on March 29.
This record fuses trap and Afropop, with occasional rolling hi-hits and piercing African percussions to create a piercing and addictive number. Known for telling his love-themed numbers filled with romantic tales, ‘How’ explores Tay walking away from a toxic partner as he declares “No more loving you, I’m good, straight”, pointing out her excesses and affirming that he is at peace with her exit. Even great in fact.
Tay Iwar is known for his artistic brilliance on records and this effort doesn’t disappoint. It is set to reignite the crave and anticipation for his soon-to-be-released “Gemini”.
Enjoy this single.
