Judah Gives you..... @DBBantino @EdgarEstevess - Low [VIDEO]

DB Bantino is hitting his stride during a major year in his career. After working with hip-hop’s finest like French Montana, D.R.A.M, Bone Thugs, and Boosie Badazz, the singer/songwriter from Washington D.C. finally got his international shine when his single with Zoey Dollaz, “Bad Tings,” took over the national airwaves, and sparked a reggae remix of the single — straight out of the Caribbean — from Junior Reid. Now more than ever, DB is ready to cross the finish line to win on his own.

DB is doing the most to prepare us for his solo project 5 In The Valley. He linked with video director Edgar Esteves, who also crafted videos with G-Eazy, Russ, and G4$HI, for his first visual off the project, “Low.” Well before the threat of hurricane season, DB escaped to the islands to shield his new love from the public eye.

Look out for DB Bantino’s project 5 In The Valley coming soon, and watch the world premiere of his new video “Low” below. (Words by Tony Centeno)

Judah Gives you...... @larryharrisjr - Phat Kid Tendencies 2

Larry travelled to sf to write pkt2 and recorded it in Atlanta. It was mixed and mastered in miami by dj d-up, who is also from dc. the producer is an old friend that I played football with in hs at georgetown prep. His name is deep and he is one half of the nyc production duo 2 hungry bros. They produce for a slew of talented rappers including homeboy sandman. Deep sent me these beats while I was in miami, but I never got around to using them. I'm glad i did now. the beats are fire!

Pkt2 is a continuation of my story picking up where the first pkt left off. It is lyrical, has weight and is fun. I tell some stories, get political and look to the future. the reception so far has been warm!

Judah Gives you... @JDVBBS - Halsey X JDVBBS - Walls Could Talk (Remix)

JDVBBS adds his own feelings on a duet of Halsey's "Walls Could Talk" from her latest album, hopeless fountain kingdom. Originally produced by Lido, JDVBBS strips the track and responds with raw emotion.

JDVBBS continues to make waves both domestically and overseas with his diverse array of talents and catchy, upbeat tunes that span across a variety of genres. He's garnered over 500,000 plays in 100+ countries on his single, War Paint, through digital jukeboxes, internet radio and domestic FM radio, and streaming apps. He's been the Deli's Artist Of The Month, Touchtunes' Breakout Band Finalist and as high as #2 on Hype Machine's Popularity charts.

  About JDVBBS...

"I make Pop/R&B music with hip-hop sensibilities. Imagine Pharrell Williams and Missy Elliot had a baby, Justin Timberlake was his godfather and Kanye West his high school bully. Onstage, I'm a one man band. I recreate my tracks on the fly, live looping bass lines, guitar riffs, beats, grooves and vocal harmonies. It’s production meets performance in a way that’s interactive, improvisational, and impressive AF."

Judah Gives you....@BrainRapp @PadillaSp - Protect Your Neck Single off Roller Coaster Album

Roller Coaster, the latest album from DMV emcee Brain Rapp, was inspired by the ups and downs of his personal life. A cancer diagnosis of a close family member, a falling out with a close friend, the spark of a new relationship, and continued success in his career, provided the fuel for much of the project. The twenty-five minute, seven track project produced by Steven Padilla, takes listeners on a ride, exploring the reality that life can be both up and down, good and bad, all at the same time.

Stream the project's lead single, "Protect Your Neck." a warning shot to anyone hoping to halt or slow Brain's progress, on Soundcloud below and purchase Roller Coaster in its entirety via iTunes here. 

Judah Gives you...... @JayTheHomie @MikeyyySoL - "PLAYGROUND"

How does one cap off an absolutely phenomenal summer of music, with the level of originality & creativity on display via new & old artists alike? Take 5 of VA's most talented, under-turned-on the radar musicians and put them on a single track, and let the magic shape itself. With some assistance from Noah Kenton, Vin Atlas & 4-ill, the latest gem from dynamic duo RoesShamBeaux (consisting of MC JayTheHomie and producer Mikey Sol) serves as a victory lap for the pair, after the success of the wildly-popular summer anthem 'Tequila Toes,' which was released earlier this summer.

'Playground' is a powerful ode to the unknown and unspoken - a message made even more powerful once the backbone of the track takes center focus. With a peering eye on every artist featured, all 5 creatives manage to take the song to a new level via their own individuality, while simultaneously combining their greatest strengths and accomplishing perhaps the most impressive feat of all - coming together as one. Emotions as vast as the ocean are blended; from hope to sorrow, depression to joy; and back again - yet the track is wholly transparent in its meaning and intent, it walks the thin line between pure and tainted - something everyone who listens will be able to relate with.

With all eyes on the Washington D.C. metro area’s budding music scene, rising artist Lambo sees his big break just over the horizon. So of the city’s soil that his birth certificate reads District of Columbia General Hospital, the 24-year-old wordsmith was born in 1992, the second youngest of six children, and raised in neighboring Capitol Heights, Maryland, on the D.C. borderline. It was there that his mother and father, along with his older siblings, exposed him to a myriad of musical genres and sounds from numerous eras.
From his older brothers’ love for Tupac, Scarface, and The Notorious B.I.G. to his parents emphatically playing early Motown acts like The Jackson 5 and Marvin Gaye, along with D.C.’s homegrown genre Go-Go, throughout the house, Lambo pulls from an extensive frame of reference when creating his music. For many, the challenge would be embodying these influences and the DMV’s soul without sounding dated or like a caricature of artists from previous eras. Not an easy feat. And yet Lambo manages to do so seamlessly due to his natural penchant for lyricism and melody displayed on songs like “Amen.”
Lambo writes lyrics with a perspective much wiser than his years – a testament to his tribulations and blessings. When mentioning the former, no single event has affected his life like the untimely death of his older brother, which left him shell-shocked at the tender age of seven-years-old.
Losing someone so close lit a fire in Lambo, ultimately causing him to approach each day with a higher level of urgency, considering that any day can be your last.
In come the blessings. The timeliest being Lambo’s greatest gift: his daughter. Born in 2016, just as his career began to ascend, she’s given him laser-focus – a reason to stay grounded through the madness that comes with fame and stardom. Like life, music is about balance. With the omnipresence of the Internet, quick, microwaveable product has supplanted for songs of substance. Fortunately, the proverbial cream always rises to the top, making the game look rather appetizing for Lambo.

Judah Gives you................. Jay Millz on the Cover of Working Mother Magazine & Featured Article

"DC community program owner Jay Mills has a different anxiety: managing her time. She runs the Green Life, where moms line up to take courses like Cooking with Cannabis 101, Pot & Policy: Know Your Rights and Marketing Your Cannabis Business—she’s not selling edibles, so her legal risk is lower. While the mother of a 4-year- old son says running her own company allows her the flexibility to create her own schedule (dream!), she points out that “when you’re the boss, you don’t call in, you call off.”
