Steven A. Clark Shares Track Off New Album

There is always that one that got away and Steven A. Clark's soul filled track “Seashore” off his upcoming album Fornication Under the Consent of the King (September 11th, on L&E Media Co. & BloodyGround USA) represents just that.  Clark tells Rolling Stone, who just premiered “Seashore,” that the track is a metaphor for losing someone and just hoping they'd come back. I'm at fault for losing her, yet I long for her to return to me like the waves. I wrote this song while living in a windowless warehouse thinking about my ex and watching Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind on repeat."

Last week Steven also shared his video for “Don’t Have You,” which was directed by Unkleluc. Steven A. Clark disclosed that the “song is a confession to my ex, it’s all the things I didn’t say to her when I had her.” The video represents Steven moving forward in his life by burning the memories with her from his past.

Alongside Frank Ocean and The Weeknd, the Fayetville, North Carolina native is a top forerunner in the Future RnB movement, spearheading a confident and new type of indie-rock and hip hop infused rhythm and blues that belies their young age. Wearing his heart on his sleeve, Clark’s songwriting reflects his absolute acceptance of the effects of love, including the adoration and despise, bliss and pain, and drinking and drugs. Building on the self-produced, written, and performed sound of STRIPES, Clark takes his synth-kissed sound one step beyond, cutting away niceties and digging into the core of his personal afflictions with F.U.C.K.

Clark is adding some needed seasoning to R&B, handling his own production, songwriting and recording. Like his peers, the musical artisan croons gut-busting lyrics about his personal life. But it’s his artistry that’s more vast, incorporating rap, R&B and funk into his skin-burrowing confections.

Trace it back to his matriculating at High Point University in High Point, North Carolina, where he found solace in relationship therapy through singing. He put collegiate life on the backburner in his junior year, chasing his musical dreams down to Miami where he cut his teeth working in a professional recording studio and set initial groundwork for STRIPES. But it was when he began recording F.U.C.K., that he finally learned to let go.

Freddy Hefner is a 21 year old, LA native (currently living in NYC and recent St. John's University graduate) and a dynamic rapper, singer-songwriter and the pioneer of a new style called STRAP, which she defines as a jazzy flow mixing hip-hop, r&b and pop delivering an infectious sound that is designed to sing along. Her first official street single is "NEW BODY", produced by K. Roosevelt (Dom Kennedy, Jhené Aiko, Casey Veggies).

Crew54 (Austin, TX) recently released their single "My Life" off their upcoming BRB... EP, and they follow it up with DVZN Media produced epic video. Depicting the story of one evening of decisions that can lead to a single choice between life and death. Shot on the streets of Central Texas over a few weeks, that even involved someone catching a charge, this video is the next level for Crew54.

"1st Degree Murder" features underground stalwarts Roc Marciano, Vinnie Paz, and Celph Titled, and the song continues Stu & Vander's impressive streak of bringing together some of hip-hop's most talented artists. "After the beat was done," says Stu Bangas, who produced the track, "it fit perfect for Roc Marciano." He adds, "I always thought Vinnie Paz and Roc Marciano would make an ill combo; Celph Titled came through to bless the hook and torch a verse."
