From Terrorbird Media:

Sole Taps Lil B the Based God for New Album

On Hello Cruel World, Sole aka Tim Holland returns with the Skyrider Band for his first full length since the split with Anticon, and his third album with the Skyrider Band. While much was made of Sole leaving the Anticon empire he helped create, there's a refreshing, new found confidence and focus not seen since his now-classic albums Selling Live Water and Bottle of Humans. On Hello Cruel World sees Sole has assembled an army of the most exciting voices in indie culture to be apart of the new record, recruiting everyone from Lil B THEBASEDGOD, Xiu Xiu, Pictureplane, Sage Francis, Ceschi, and more, to create a pretty stunning tapestry that is a new high water mark in Sole's creative output. The first single, "Hello Cruel World," is now streaming on Sole's Soundcloud page. The album drops July 19th on cd, vinyl, and digital via Fake Four Inc., with the European release being handled by Equinox Records.

Perhaps even more interesting, listeners will notice that Sole has adopted the most deliberate flow of his career--abandoning the freewheeling, hyper-timed assaults of his earlier work in favor of a biting clarity and all around accessibility. The record draws on the wealth of his newly found freedom, tapping into the positivity and ethics of a DIY tradition he has always known and embraced throughout his career - transforming his past cynicism into a call to arms and personal empowerment. The Skyrider Band itself has been similarly transformed; trading in their dense soundscapes and organic touchstones for an impeccable attention to detail and more studio-centric productions.

On Sole and the Skyrider Band's last record, Plastique, Sole claimed, “I've been digging my grave since age 15.” Since then, he's been hard at work converting his grave into trenches that span from California to Barcelona, and the bottom of the ocean to the moon. Hello Cruel World occupies these trenches, steadfastly refusing to be flushed into a niche.

From Park Street PR:

Video: TonyAs f/ Raggo Zulu - "Loving It"

TonyAs describes himself as an artist that has evolved over time, inspired by many and has now ultimately come into his own. The art started as a musician- Rapper turned Singer but TonyAs has also embraced his other passion- writing (as a song writing and feature writer). Formerly known as theSaint - TonyAs has taken it one step further opting to strip it $bare, go back to basics, whereas theSaint was a straight talking hip-hop artist, TonyAs the musician has embraced other influences and as well as rapping- also sings, adding another dimension to his works.

As a musician the style is charismatic, easy listening emotional type music, in his own words 'he wants people listening to be able to feel what he's saying- to empathise, whether having experienced it or witnessed the content of his verses'. Sound wise it's fundamentally hiphop- though his evolution as an artist has lead to incorporations of Reggae, Soul, Funk and other such genres. Lyrics are still his forte if you like, and he prides himself on being a vivid and lyricist. 2011 promises to be an interesting year, the SexDrugsPoetry brand grows from strength to strength, there's the music, the 'Y Is It' articles and videos that TonyAs himself produces. 2011 will see the release of his free download EP 'Introducing TonyAs' project. Singles to look out for include 'Back Into My Groove', 'Real Money' and 'Loving It'.

Snoop Dogg's New Label Signs Lynda Sayyah

Block Starz Music LLC is proud to announce the signing of beautiful Indianapolis, Indiana recording artist Lynda Sayyah to rap icon Snoop Dogg's newly-formed Dogg Town Music Group.

Lynda, whose debut single "Tickin'" is featured on Block Starz Music's first all-female compilation, "She Got Next 2011" (June 21), is a trilingual (Spanish, Arabic, and English) singer with 5-octave range. Voted "Indy's Sexiest Musician" by Metromix Magazine, Lynda's sound is a fusion of Pop, Rock, R&B, and contemporary middle eastern melodies combined with lyrics that reflect her own life struggles.

"I come from a very strict Arab-Muslim family," says Lynda, who is of Palestinian and German descent. "I grew up feeling suffocated by double standards against women and just trying to be a normal kid. A lot of my music exudes these struggles and I think a lot of girls of every nationality can relate to me."

Lynda Sayyah's undeniable beauty and talent immediately caught the eyes and ears of Dogg Town Music Group, a new Los Angeles/Long Beach, California-based record company founded in 2010 by Jason "Cup" Brown, his cousin Calvin "Snoop Dogg" Broadus, Charles "Beach Dogg" Howard II, and Shatto Brown, who promptly signed her to the upstart label.

"We are looking for one timers or one-in-a-million talent, meaning talent that can only exist once in a lifetime,” says Dogg Town COO Shatto Brown of the decision to sign Lynda as the First Lady Of DTMG. "There can only be one Michael Jackson, one Madonna, one Snoop Dogg, one Metallica -- we only want talent like that. Lynda is every bit of that. She is an amazing vocalist, beautiful, a great songwriter, and she deserves the opportunity to have the world know all of this."

In addition to Lynda Sayyah, the Dogg Town Music roster includes rap artists Poppa Heat, M-Dot, and the label is currently working a merger with T-Pain's Nappy Boy Productions to release the incredibly talented quartet One Chance.

"We feel very strongly about working with T-Pain on this [One Chance] project," says Shatto Brown. "We feel that Pain is an amazing talent and to get Dogg and Pain to come together with Dogg Town we can do things unheard of."

Lynda Sayyah's explosive dance single, "Tickin'", will be available for download on iTunes June 21 as part of Block Starz Music's anticipated "She Got Next 2011" compilation EP.
