FNK RECORDS Announces the Brand New EP “Revival” by FL Jones

The modern era of music has given way to enigmas and artists of all shapes and forms who break the norm of what we have come to expect as far as what an artist truly is.  ​FL Jones is one such artist that epitomises the essence of the modern era. A multi-talented vocalist and musician from Beaufort South Carolina. FL Jones is an educator and entrepreneur who owns a professional development and coaching company by day, and goes by the alter ego moniker of FL Jones as a professional recording and artist. ​FL Jones is making music that is thoughtful, conscious and driven by a desire to motivate, inspire, comfort and spread love and joy to all those that hear it.

He then returned to the US and following performances in New York at venues such as the Jazz Standard, Sullivan’s Hall, the Bitter End and the Cutting Room he eventually transitioned into recording his own music. This period of evolution led to the growth of ​FL Jones’s creativity and undeniable talent. He has ultimately developed a style of songwriting and performance that is transparent, daring and full of hope and reflective of his experiences, thought and ambitions, turning his pain and passion into purpose and lessons into studio sessions.

​FL Jones has had a vast array of musical influences however he accredits the pivotal influences in his music to Prince, Stevie, Funkadelic, House music, Soul music, Sting, The Police, Bowie, Coltrane and World Music. This all culminates in ​FL Jones producing a musical experience that is enjoyable, easy going and fun but still seeks to provoke thought. FL Jones uses his music as a vehicle to express his perspectives and tell stories. His overarching ambition is to leave everyone a little happier and more inspired than they were before. FL also scored the feature film, “200 American” and served as a composer and music supervisor on the films “Whirlwind” “Raw Moves.”, and most recently “Naked As We Came In”.

He will be releasing his latest EP “Revival” on the 13th of February 2021 that will showcase his lyricism in a uniquely constructed piece of musical artistry. His music exhibits not only his versatility and vocal prowess but has surely cemented his style and has paved the way for the varied expressions of his musical ideas and artistic craft.  This is the music that will push the boundaries of our perception as well as inspire and drive us to introspective conversations. It’s the music that may not change the world, but can change the people in the world

Olivia Rodrigo Plays Heartbreak Scene Again: Her New Track Deja Vu Is A Hit

Remember Olivia Rodrigo? Yeah! She is back again with another hit track titled Deja Vu. Following the groundbreaking success of her debut single “Drivers Licence” Olivia Rodrigo has released another top song.

Remember Olivia Rodrigo? Yeah! She is back again with another hit track titled Deja Vu. Following the groundbreaking success of her debut single “Drivers Licence” on streaming platforms and music charts around the world, Olivia Rodrigo has released another top song. There are little deviations from her “Drivers License” hit to her latest hit “Deja Vu”. Many patterns in the video for Deja Vu reminisce some scenes in “Drivers License”, like driving a car at the beginning of the video and thinking about her ex. What is with Olivia Rodrigo and her ex?

First, it was Drivers Licence and all the breakup saga on the track. At a time Olivia Rodrigo admitted she had a painful breakup before the song was released. Now it is “Deja Vu,” and she is still talking about her ex. Olivia Rodrigo must have been left devastated about her previous relationship. There is no proof that she is traumatized from her previous relationship, but it is only a fact that you can only paint a vivid picture of what you have witnessed.

On the bright side, Olivia Rodrigo has been able to paint a melodious picture of heartbreak scenarios in two of her songs. Deja Vu debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 chart at number 8 while Drivers License topped the chart on its debut. With these achievements, Olivia Rodrigo became the first artist in history to have his/her first two songs debuted on the top 10.

Background

Deja Vu was released on the 1st of April, 2021 by the artist’s label, Geffen and Interscope Records. Before the released date was announced, Olivia Rodrigo had deleted all her Instagram photos which kept fans guessing her next move. On wiping out her Instagram photos, she explained to fans that it was for the release of her new single Deja Vu.

Late in March 2021, Olivia Rodrigo started posting cryptic teasers of the song on all her social media accounts. On the 29th of March, she announced the name of the track and even posted the song’s artistic cover that same day. When she announced that the song would be released on April 1, 2021, she assured fans that it was not the April fool prank.

When Olivia Rodrigo teased the announcement of Deja Vu with three flickering clips of a melting ice cream cone, floating clouds, and a car speeding along the coast, fans may have wondered if the song would be similar to “Drivers License”. In an interview, Olivia Rodrigo told MTV News that the track was not like ‘Drivers License’ and that she was both excited and anxious about her fans seeing a different side of her artistry on it.

So far, Deja Vu has been lauded by fans, artists, and music analysts, with many calling Olivia Rodrigo the next pop music heavyweight. Deja Vu debuted at number 8 on the Billboard Hot 100 music chart, and it has been streamed over a million times.

Composition and genre

Deja Vu hit track can be categorized as pop, Indie pop, alternative pop, and psychedelic pop song. The song was written by Olivia Rodrigo and Dan Nigro. While the latter was attributed to the song’s production, other important individuals like Randy Merrill and Mitch McCarthy who mastered and mixed the song respectively should also be noted.

The video

Olivia Rodrigo premiered her new single “Deja Vu” on YouTube and MTV before it was launched, and she confirmed that the music video for “Deja Vu” was filmed in Malibu. Allie Avital directed the video for the song. Talia Ryder was starred in the music video. Olivia Rodrigo’s first appearance in the video was in a car driving and eating ice cream as she approaches a building.

She looks through the window of the building and smiles at the girl inside, who is dressed in a green dress and seems to be reminiscing. Olivia Rodrigo stared at the lady for a while until she left for her convertible vintage Mercedes Benz parked outside. When she returned home, she changes into the exact green gown she saw earlier and enters a room with several TVs stacked on top of each other, all of which are playing videos of the girl she saw.

As Olivia Rodrigo rewinds the video, it shows her and not the other girl doing the same thing. When she eventually realizes that the girl is stealing all of her true memories, she smashes the televisions with a hammer. There’s just one TV left when she’s done, and it’s showing the other girl lip-syncing the words “I know you get Deja Vu.”

The ending scene is a repetition of the first scene, with the exception that the other girl is driving instead of Olivia Rodrigo. Since the premiere of the music video of Deja Vu, it has been view over 28 million times on YouTube. Watch the video of the song below.

Olivia Isabel Rodrigo is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. She was born on the 20th of February, 2003 in Temecula, California. The artist rose to prominence in acting before branching out to music where she broke a lot of music streaming records as a debutant.

After signing with Interscope and Geffen Records in 2020, she released her debut single “Drivers License,” which went to number one position on top music charts in several countries around the world, including the US.

Currently, Olivia Rodrigo is working on her debut album titled “Sour” which is due to be released in May 2021. So far she has only dropped two singles from that album, of which Déjà Vu is the latest of them. Click here to read about Olivia Rodrigo’s record-breaking debut track “Drivers License”.

Meet MadLeo The Exceptional Artist

Okay, guys! MadLeo is an exceptional artist and I am not flattering. She does good music and recently the artist released her new track titled Reminisce. I wrote the title of this article just to get your attention but sorry I lied about calling the song (Reminisce) a hit, I think it is way beyond it. I could also say Reminisce is a top-quality track but is slightly above that context too. It is so hard to tell you what Reminisce is. MadLeo is something else! The phrase “out of this world” would do.

After listening to Reminisce by MadLeo over and over again, I was tempted to rate the track. Although the meticulous trait in me would not allow me to give Reminisce a 5(five) star rating, I think MadLeo overwhelmingly deserves a 3.9 to 4star rating. The track, Reminisce, is just 3.23 minutes of pure bliss and artistry. MadLeo announced the release of the Reminisce on her multiple social media accounts on and on June 24, she released a teaser video for the track much to the delight of her fans.

About the track

MadLeo released a teaser video for Reminisce on YouTube on June 24, 2021, while the audio of the track was released the following day. The song is available on multiple music streaming platforms and it has been streamed over a thousand times at the time of publishing this article. Reminisce is an emotional song, its lyrical composition is made up of two verses and pre-chorus, a chorus, and a bridge.

In Reminisce, MadLeo paints a melodic picture of an emotional quagmire, where she is lost in two minds. The first verse of the song talks about how MadLeo has moved on from her past relationship and now in a better place but she still has dreams of her ex-lover that she battles so hard to rid herself of. From the chorus to the rest of the song, MadLeo has pretty much given in to the innate feelings she had for her ex.

See the lyrics of the track below.

Reminisce

[Verse 1]

I’ve moved on I’m long gone

And I’m happy

But I’ve been having dreams

Of you coming back to me

Don’t know what to do

Or who to talk to

My subconscious mind

Seems to want you

[Pre-chorus]

I don’t know why I still feel you at night

All this time, I really thought I was fine

[Chorus]

But I keep falling

Can’t let go

Won’t let go

Even though

I know I don’t wanna feel this

But I keep falling

Wanna forget

The words that you said

But my mind goes back to reminisce

Cause my fires still burnin for you you you

I’m tired of tryna be cool cool cool

I can’t keep hiding the truth truth truth

That there’s no replacing you

No replacing you

[Verse 2]

I’m sure you’ve moved on long gone

I hope you’re happy

But can’t stop myself from hoping

Something’s reminding you of me

Un-Memorized your number

Delеted every picturе

Can’t hurt if I don’t remember

But my body can’t forget you

[Pre-chorus]

I don’t know why, I see your blue eyes every night

All this time, I really thought I was fine

[Chorus]

But I keep falling

Can’t let go

Won’t let go

Even though

I know I don’t wanna feel this

But I keep falling

Wanna forget

The words that you said

But my mind goes back to reminisce

Cause my fires still burning for you you you

I’m tired of tryna be cool cool cool

I can’t keep hiding the truth truth truth

That there’s no replacing you

No replacing you

[Bridge]

I still see your face as you drove away

I’m stuck here and I’m still tryna replicate

Everything we had but I just let it break

Couldn’t make you stay

But I just gotta say

I just gotta say

[Chorus]

But I keep falling

Can’t let go

Won’t let go

Even though

I know I don’t wanna feel this

But I keep Falling

Wanna forget

The words that you said

But my mind goes back to reminisce

Cause my fires still burnin for you you you

I’m tired of tryna be cool (tired) cool (tryna be) cool

I can’t keep hiding the truth truth truth

That there’s no replacing you

Genre and composition

The mind-blowing song, Reminisce is under the Pop music genre. Harry James produced the song, while Katie Sky, April Panaggio (MadLeo), and the latter composed the lyrics. Reminisce is a mix of melodious vocals, synth beat, beautiful piano syncopation, intense kick, and rhythmic hi-hats. Listen to the song below.

The artist

MadLeo is a songwriter, singer, and actress who is making a name for herself in the music industry. The young artist came from a family of athletes that lives in Daytona Beach Florida, United States. While growing up, MadLeo has always nursed the ambition of becoming an actress and a songwriter. She spent her days like the rest of her family playing competitive basketball, but her nights were spent penning songs till she fell asleep.

MadLeo started releasing songs after graduating with a degree in acting and at that time, her stage name was Aprilann. During the lockdown due to the pandemic outbreak, MadLeo composed and released two hit singles, “Bad Friends” and “8th of November”. The songs were a huge success on streaming platforms as they both got streamed over three hundred thousand times. This year, MadLeo continues to thrill fans with new hit tracks in “Chemtrails Over The Country Club” and “Reminisce”.

18 Karat Reggae Brings The Latest And Greatest Dancehall & Reggae Music Straight From Kingston Jamaica

Mr. Bertus whose given name is Marlon Ainsworth was born in Portmore, St. Catherine on the island of Jamaica, the same place where the king of dancehall, Vybz Kartel, is from. The versatile songwriter and singer was born on August 6th which also happens to be Jamaica’s Independence Day.

While growing up, Mr. Bertus was influence by some of the greats of reggae like Dennis Brown, Beres Hammond, Josey Wales and Michael Buckley. Over the years the singjay has done collaborations with I-Wayne, The Mighty Diamonds and I-Octane.

Mr. Bertus was the first ever reggae artiste to perform in Turks and Caicos. The artiste has also toured The United States, South America, The Cayman Island, Suriname and Europe.

The first song ever released by the queen of the dancehall, Spice, was actually written by Mr. Bertus.

Press Release:

18 Karat Reggae Gold 2021” is an entertaining 18-track compilation set of Dancehall and Reggae Music produced by 18 Karat Reggae crew. The selection brings the listener tunes from Luciano, Mr. Bertus, Save the World, Diligent CityBoss, Little Kirk and other top reggae artists of 2021.

Mr. Bertus, one of the top artists out of Portmore, Jamaica, has made collaborations with reggae greats like the Mighty Diamond and I-Wayne. His song “Brain Food” across a remixed version of an Alton Ellis rhythm is a tribute to Marijuana and Marijuana smokers all over the world. It’s an infectious ganja anthem worth hearing.

Mr. Bertus is also featured on another must hear song called “Come and Go” which features fellow Portmore artist, Ico Flames. The production and overall arrangement of the song is perfect and it proves that great Reggae Music is still being made in Jamaica. The song definitely dispels the rumor that Reggae has taken a backseat to Dancehall.

Like Mr. Bertus paying tribute to cannabis, Atlanta based artist, Ras Fraser, also pays major tribute to Jamaica in the song “Nuh Wey like Yawd”. Although the song sometimes sounds like a Jamaican Tourist Board commercial, the production is very good and the artiste’s delivery will have lots of people singing along.

You can’t pay tribute to Marijuana and Jamaica but not pay tribute to Rasta and that is exactly what reggae legend, Luciano, is doing on this compilation.  This is definitely nowhere near the best material we have heard from the reggae great over the years but it is still an enjoyable listen.  Mr. Bertus, Diligent CityBoss and even Ico Flames are shining brighter than the Messenger on this release but it could be just the passing of the torch from one of reggae’s greatest ever to some of the genre’s future greats.

One of, if not the most outstanding song on the compilation is a cross between afrobeats and Dancehall. The title of the song is Maneeza and it is performed by Diligent CityBoss and Moni. One this is certain about this song, it will be played at most parties for the summer of 2021.

Other bangers on the compilation are “Call from God” by Jango Fresh, “Sound Boy” by Counsela and “Love wi Style” by Lenz and Nykka.

As we move out of quarantine and try to get back to somewhat of a normal life, 18 Karat Reggae Gold 2021 should assist in the transformation, musically.

“Perry Michael Allen” An Award Winning Classical Composer & Arranger “Session-Man” With RIAA Certified Gold Platinum Albums

 Worldwide:_2021 

Artist/Composer Perry Michael Allen Memphis, Tn.  Allen continues to make his own space in the Indie arena.    © Nugen Group Itnl_U.S._HOLLAND_ITALY

Years of recording hits for other artists pushed him to master the art of producing independent music. 

Perry Michael Allen was born and raised in Memphis U.S.A., the heartland of Soul. Allen’s’ musical roots run deep into the contemporary music marketplace. His father Perry Allen, an educator and Memphis’ foremost jazz radio disc-jockey, left a lasting impression on the young and talented musician. During high school, Allen was awarded the unique opportunity to study the art of record making with some of Memphis’ greatest session musicians. You can hear his Memphis roots and the influences in his music. For example, early in his career under the wings of master producer “Papa” Willie Mitchell and Stax hit writer David Porter (of “Soul Man” fame), Allen sharpened his song writing and production skills and later became an artist / writer and arranger for both Stax Records, and the legendary Hi Records where he worked for many years with Mitchell and soul legend Al Green during their chart topping careers.

…”the whole experience was very humbling and unreal at times” says Allen.

Since then, Perry Michael Allen has collaborated on numerous successful albums. In addition to his own records for Stax, Hi and other record companies, Allen penned three hits for Al Green; “Hanging On”, “So Good To Be Here” and “Soon As I Get Home” as well as recording and arranging for other well-knowns such as Boz Skaggs, The Sweet Inspirations, Albert King, Wilson Pickett, Anita Ward, The Memphis Horns, Bobby Rush, The Soul Children, Syl Johnson, European groups “Wet Wet Wet”, Axelle Red, Zucchero  and many others. 

As a composer and arranger, “Session-Man” Allen has received many awards including RIAA Certified Gold and Platinum Albums and the coveted Memphis Blues Foundation “Blue Note Award”. His songs and tracks are also licensed to many movies and TV shows.  Some are: “C.S.I.” -”Dr.  House MD” -”JAG”, “Ally McBeal”, and for movies “Pulp Fiction”, “Munich”, “Mickey Blue Eyes”, “American Pimp” and many more. 

Berklee College of Music recognized Master Perry Michael Allen as a Music Production Specialist. Adding to an ongoing career Allen now offers “The Clinic”: “Session Man” courses and Music Production Counseling to emerging artists/musicians and European music institutes and studios. 

When asked why he wanted to take a break from recording and offer his courses, Allen replied:

 “ I was lucky to be inspired by great artists and producers and to have them as mentors I  want to convey inspiration and knowledge to musicians and artists who feel they are on the outside looking in. For me, there is nothing more rewarding than the feeling that you get when someone tells you that their success is due to what they learned from you and the things you’ve been able to convey to them”

Worldwide Update: Artist / Composer Perry Michael Allen Memphis, Tn. releases his single “JUST LIKE THAT” on all music streaming platforms. Allen continues to make his own space in the Indie arena.

Allen says “I wanted to do a single with a new personalized sound, my take on where Memphis Music could be. Collaborating with friends , I was able to do what would normally be done in a recording studio environment. The sessions were a smooth online exchange of tracks and ideas leading up to the final master.”

After a two-year hiatus, Perry Michael Allen has returned with “Just Like That”Allen’s last album “Tracks Vol 1” introduced “The New Easy” the Jazz / Funk version of Adult Contemporary. “JUST LIKE THAT” .. is a very strong return for Perry Michael.  .. A breath of fresh air
