New Release: Jenna Andrews – ‘Kiss and Run EP’

 

By now singer/songwriter Jenna Andrews has got to have you feeling some sort of way with that totally unfair cooing voice of hers. We’ve shared a few tracks to whet your appetite so far: “Mourning Sickness,” “Kiss and Run,” and “I Didn’t Mean It.”

And today, you can have all the rest with the release of Jenna’s 7-track Kiss and Run EP, featuring an all-star production cast: The Messengers (Justin Bieber, Chris Brown), Dan Heath (Lana Del Rey), Doc McKinney (The Weeknd, Drake, Mary J. Blige), Adam Pallin (Cobra Starship), Jake Gosling (Ed Sheeran, Paloma Faith, Lady Gaga, Far East Movement), and Wayne Wilkins (Beyonce, Jordin Sparks, Cheryl Cole).

The determined artist’s passion seamlessly translates from her story to honest, real lyrics that she aims to use to help give ‘little girls and young women hope that their dreams can come true.’ We can get behind that, no doubt.

Also today, Jenna released her video for “Weapon,” which happens to be one of our favorite tracks off the EP. And yet another gorgeous video to complement a candid song about the double edged sword that love can often be.

Timothy Bloom Announces US Tour Dates

 

Having already written and produced songs for Ne-Yo, Chris Brown, and Smokey Robinson, Timothy Bloom is well on his way. Most recently, he’s left swooning audiences eagerly awaiting his forthcoming debut album with his The Budding Rose EP. The EP’s sultry lead single, “Til the End of Time” created much buzz, due in part to the ballad’s tastefully provocative video directed by David Rodriguez.

Catch Bloom across stages nationwide this summer. The tour starts in Los Angeles on July 29th, and ends on the east coast with Philadelphia on August 30th and Vienna, VA on September 1st.

Diplo Releases New Mix Using Legitmix

 

For the first time ever, the revolutionary Legitmix platform is allowing musicians to legally sell songs using copyrighted music without having to go through the arduous and costly sample clearing process. Further, anyone can recreate a DJ set, remix, or sample-based song on their own computer utilizing the original samples used by the artist!

Crazy exciting. We will certainly be nudging our pals sitting on uncleared sampled music, for starters.

Diplo has partnered with Legitmix to release Mad Legit, a 40-minute DJ set including 9 exclusive remixes that draw from Tupac’s “California Love,” Chris Brown’s “Look at me Now” and Belle Epoque’s “Miss Broadway,” to name a few. Sample the mix below.

The pricing is quite clever as well. To purchase Mad Legit, you pay $3.00 “plus the retail cost of the 14 copyrighted tracks needed to recreate the Diplo DJ set and its 9 remixes.” What’s even more fancy is that Legitmix will search your hard drive for the copyrighted source tracks and only charge you for ones you don’t already have.

Legitmix cites a very simple goal: “deliver on the promise of copyright: to encourage artistic freedom while protecting a creator’s right to profit from their work.” You can learn more about the company’s story by viewing their video.
