SirBastien Brings Along AYLØ, DAP the Contract, Jinmi Abduls, Eri Ife and More On New Album, ‘Mango’

This year has been such an exciting year for Nigeria’s new-gen acts. Asides having some of the biggest songs in the country fielded by   Fireboy DML, Rema and Joeboy, several other members of the new wave have been exploring sounds, experimenting new musical complexities and sharing the outcome with the world via beautiful projects all year long. Among the numerous 2019 releases include Santi‘s “Mandy and the Jungle,” Lady Donli‘s “Enjoy Your Life” – a strong contender for album of the year, Remy Baggins‘ sex tape “Hentai,” Dami Oniru‘s “Bri’s Lounge” as well as AYLØ’sDnt’Dlt.” These projects and more have helped greatly in restoring confidence about the future of the Nigerian music scene which is currently getting the world’s attention.

SirBastien is, however, the latest in the long list of new-gen acts to treat us to a solid project. Just a few days ago, this multitalented act released a new album titled “Mango” and we can’t just seem to get enough of this beautifully crafted body of work.

On this 9-track (actually eight tracks and one bonus) project, SirBastien brings along a striking cast of the new wave including DAP the Contract, Jinmi Abduls, Ilaye, Eri Ife, Keenah, JayHadADream, Bio and AYLØ.

Across these tracks, SirBastein switches smoothly between singing and rapping as he explores themes centred around love and enjoying good times with the ones we care about. A plethora of sounds, the sonically rich album is majorly self-produced with co-production credits for Saucy and Damiore. 

Falana Kicked Off Her Chapter One (EP) Tour With A Night Of Indelible Artistic Experience

On Friday, August 16, Falana kicked off her Chapter One Tour. The Neo-Soul and R&B singer had fans, family and friends gathered at the Terra Kulture, Lagos, for the first stop of her tour which is set to hit other African cities like Accra, Kigali, and Abuja.

AYLØ serenading on stage

After thrilling performances by opening acts, Deena Ade, Celeste and Aylø -who just put out an impressive project “Dnt Dlt“- the star of the night, Falana was ushered on stage to a rockstar’s welcome, as she quickly takes us to church with “O God, here I am...”

Backed by her beaming six-piece band, the Nigerian-Canadian singer took us through her recently-released “Chapter One” EP, delivering acoustic renditions of some of the standouts of the well-received project, thereby giving them a flavor different to the way they were consumed on the tape.

Radiant and commanding on stage, Falana ran us through a run of old picks such as ‘To Zion‘, ‘Feel Your Energy‘, ‘Start Again‘ and ‘Dynamite‘. One of the highlights of the night was her performance of ‘Woman’, her somber record centered around women empowerment, highlighting the outstanding contributions of women in our society. Mid-performance, she broke into a monologue that accentuates the grim realities of single women in a patriarchal society such as ours.

Falana saved the best for the last as she closed her 1 hour 30 minutes set with her popular single ‘Ride or Die‘. The live rendition of this song filled the room with a gripping air of nostalgia, inciting the already captive audience to sing along to the standout record.

That wasn’t the end of the fun though, as everyone headed to Club 57 for the Culture Custodian-hosted after party.

The Lagos show was indeed a night to remember loaded with a pure and indelible artistic experience that left the audience roaring in appreciation. Her next stop is Accra where she would be treating unsuspecting Ghanaians to her thrilling performances. What a way to kick-off a tour!

 

AYLØ Releases New Mixtape “dnt’dlt”

Burgeoning alternative sensation, AYLØ has released his highly anticipated project titled “dnt’dlt.” This tape is a follow up to his stellar “Insert Project Name” mixtape released in 2017 making this his third project in three years.

Described as a soulful fusion that evokes daytime warmth and hazy night whispers on Apple Music, “dnt’dlt” is a 10-track mixtape that features appearances from FasinaPsycho YP, MOJOSugarbanaCheso and Myquale.  The project is led by singles like ‘Paris‘ and ‘Sassy‘, two sultry, trippy and appetizing records that kept us on our toes for the now-released mixtape.

Speaking about the mixtape in a recent interview with SG-Mag, AYLØ revealed that “DNT’ DLT is about regaining confidence. About not deleting your existence, metaphorically and physically. My favourite song is ‘indo smkn‘, a lot of things, mojo and I spoke about on that song, stuff that made me want to delete.”

This project comes highly recommended from us at The PGM Club as AYLØ never disappoints. Enjoy above.

AYLØ Joins Forces With Fasina & Psycho YP On ‘Sassy’

The rollout for AYLØ‘s forthcoming project “dnt’dlt” has officially begun. Just last month, the sensational singer treated us to the first single off the project, ‘Paris’ which has garnered favourable reviews and reactions. And now, the AYLØ is taking it a step further by releasing the next single off the project titled ‘Sassy’. On this record, the singer teams up with fellow new gen acts, Fasina and the raving Abuja-based rapper, PsychoYP.

In an interview with Complex, AYLØ revealed that the Eke-produced is “sort of an ode to feminine sass. The chase they make you chase. Knowing fully well that this is 2019 and we no longer condone intimacy, relationships or the idea of marriage as a concept that renders women a subservient and, in essence, a slave.”

Enjoy the single above.

AYLØ stops by the PGM Club to premiere his new single PARIS!

On this episode, AYLØ stops by at the Push Good Music Club to exclusively premiere his new single PARIS and he also touched on his soon to be released EP, ‘Dntdlt’,

In the second half of the show, we had DJ Java exclusively play us his album SOUNDS OF THE LADIES MAN scheduled to drop on Friday, June 14.

Listen To AYLØ’s New Single ‘Paris’

Burgeoning alternative act, AYLØ is back with his first offering for 2019 titled ‘Paris‘. This comes after fervent calls from fans all over social media for a record from the singer. ‘Paris’ therefore provides a taste of what AYLØ has been cooking and also gives the fans something to hold on to as they await further information on the release of his next project titled “Dnt’dlt” (Don’t Delete).

With ‘Paris‘, AYLØ delievers a soothing and melodious record over a simplistic and minimalist production. With his emotive vocals on full display, he croons about how he is helplessly in love with his sweetheart. “We are all damaged …” he resigns.

Paris is about finding beauty in everything. Beauty is in our damage and in our stories. Paradise is what you make it. ‘Paris’ is the subject’s favourite city, so hence the concept of. Beauty, if in, is out, and as above, so below. Me never having being to Paris, it wouldn’t matter because I’ve found paradise in Lagos… Right now, in this (that) moment.” He reveals in an interview with Tmrw Magazine

This song is co-produced by Le Mav and Odunsi The Engine.

Enjoy this new single above.

Listen To ‘You’ By Zarion Uti

Zarion Uti is set up to end the year on a great note.

The singer has stayed adequately consistent with his music this year to keep us listening with his singles Rebel, Ayé (featuring Psycho YP) and Finito (featuring AYLØ), the singer has done enough to keep his presence tangible throughout this year.

On Wednesday, Zarion Uti came out with his latest titled You, produced by Chillz. The song has Zarion giving his crush undivided attention and showing an equally intense desire to meet her with lyrics If Uber no dey work/Make we call Taxify.

The song is a catchy one with just enough feel-good to lift your spirit.

Aylo – LITT

We’re pleased to inform our readers that Aylo’s latest release is a pleasant surprise. The new single titled LITT is just that; but not in the way you’d expect, especially if you thought littuations only happen fast-paced.

Laced with calm instrumentals and soothing vocals, the song once again proves that less is more. The music is seamless and gets you nodding and moving to its designs.

LITT is Aylo’s promise to his fans that he’ll be dropping a series of singles building up to the late summer release his next project. And furthermore a message to all the nay-sayers that he fully intends to keep dropping gems his way.

LITT is a nice break from all of the noise and we all deserve a break, don’t we? I know I do.
