The 6th annual OVO fest

ovo-fest-2015-01

Claiming it was one of the biggest moments of his career, Drake turned last night's OVO Fest into a memorable one, to say the least: announcing Kanye West as one of his idols, dropping lines on Meek Mill, sharing the stage with Travis Scott (who stated he'd broken out of jail to make it there on time) and music connoisseur Pharrell. All in one night - perhaps what most artists try to squeeze into a year.

We can't wait to see what's up next in the career of this Toronto native sensation. And, with his newest recruitment, Roy Wood$, blasting on a Tuesday afternoon, all we can say is: keep it coming.

Black Caddy

Our SRP artist, Tijon from Apache Collective, just dropped his latest single, "Black Caddy" with a hot new music video to go with it. Its chill sound and crisp quality makes us want to just sit back and enjoy the summer vibe. And, who doesn't like a good love story? With music is produced by NJ producer, Clammy Clams and the visuals by OBfilms, the StreetRacer Team is feeling proud to be working with this up and coming NJ artist.

Touching upon timelessness and universality, Kanye West together with Adidas Originals released their Autumn/Winter 2015 collection during this season's NYFW. We love how each individual piece speaks for itself - allowing for endless combinations, as Mr. West himself puts it: the world's first "solution-based" clothing line. Creativity for everyone - contemporary, yet minimal and basic. What do you think?

For the love of music

A glamorous show is always worth showing off. This year's Grammy Awards reminded us of our goals and aspirations, the artistry and passion we share for music. We love watching the many characters, couples, fashionistas and one-of-a-kinds. Find all the great highlights HERE!

One Dream

It seems we always claim we have a long way to go, and yet we also say we've come such a long way. We wonder what this man would have said at the age of 86 this year if he hadn’t been assassinated in Memphis in 1968, Martin Luther King, Jr. People all over the world come together on this day to commemorate a man of so many wise words, a man full of inspiration, a man who spoke up about the truth and belief that many of us share to this very day...and perhaps gave us all a dream with his infamous words.

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.

Voyce* is born to create

IMG_6626 “Born on the moon, raised on Mars, stuck on Earth, reaching for the Stars” - the tattoo on his chest defines this award winning Montreal based singer/songwriter/music producer's life, and the art that he creates.  

This week's #BTC, Voyce*, embarked on his journey back in 2008. Two years later he was signed to a Nashville based record label. Well respected in the music industry, his work has now reached over half a million views on VEVO. However, just like for many of us, it has not always been easy. Pain – in one word – he will tell you, is his greatest motivator. It is the pain and struggle that compels him to grow and expand with each day. This artist holds firmly onto the belief that even through darkness there will always be hope. As a striving catalyst, this artist has immensely inspired the SRP team and we cannot wait to see and hear more of Voyce*.

Alex Moccia

10246042_626389330774313_1444064029_a We are excited to be introducing a new artist to be on the look out for, Alex Moccia. With a look very reminiscent of Iggy Azalea, but a completely different voice, Alex has the SRP team intrigued for more. Her latest work can be found on YouTube - a remixed and reworked version of Purity Ring's song, "Lofticries". Alex explains that "the lyrics and sound really inspired me to make a full length creative video about overcoming fear and freeing yourself from abuse of any sort". Her deep and melodic tone is unlike most of what we've heard - this small-town singer/songwriter is something to watch out for!

Nothing can compare to the amount of beauty and excitement packed into one short week - yes, Fashion Week, Fall 2014 is upon us. We've been through some of the inspiring pieces and chosen a few favorites. More can be found HERE. To top it off, we want to share with you some of the tunes that have been playing out of our speakers this weekend. Route 94 and XXX88, the perfect club/lounge mixes, wouldn't you say?

All for one and one for all

A while back we started introducing new artists every week - ones that we collaborate with or are inspired by. Last week was all about that soft singer/songwriter sound, this week we're bringing back the hardcore and raw, more specifically - a mixture of Logic, A Tribe Called Quest and Yelawolf. Yes, a flow that you will rock your boat. A few weeks ago StreetRacer Productions met Joshua Andrew Boyer, more commonly known as DOSENATION, a South Jersey rapper striving for something bigger than just the fame and success of his own words. From 2007 to today the solid work has paid off and you will find Joshua across the web, on many different platforms - growing his nation. We've had the pleasure of learning a bit more about the artist and his vision, keep reading and you'll see why this rapper has so much more to give!

What is your earliest memory of music, and how has it impacted you?

My earliest memory of music is watching my Uncle Steve make beats in his apartment. I was so fascinated with how everything worked that I became eager to learn the language of music at any cost. This Art had me at Hello.

Who are some of your greatest influencers, and who do you hope to one day influence?

My greatest influences are A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul and B.I.G. I hope one day to influence our youth into doing the right thing and spreading a message through music. Drop beats not bombs.

What do you think sets it apart from all the other great rappers/artists out there?

What sets me apart from the rest of the artist are that I never spit the same flow. I have the ability to switch it up in a moments notice and not think twice about it. I've always seen it like this "Create your own lane, competition can't compete with originality"! I have the ability to connect with people by the masses. Being a artist your fans need to be your number one priority, without them you are NOTHING.

What can we expect to hear and see from DOSENATION in the near future?

This year will be filled with a lot of Shows (expect a great time with a lot of excitement,energy and good vibes), my clothing, contest held by me, meet-and-greets and a possible tour (as of right now my locations are NJ|PA|NY). I am very excited for what the future holds.

What are three things you cannot live without?

There are only 3 things in this life I cannot live without and that is my family, music and God. I find faith in all of them, become part of something bigger than this life, follow the movement and become part of the nation #DOSENATION.

A superior September

The month of September will be an exciting one - the Born To Create campaign is cooking up with lots of new ways for you to share your art, a new set of artist interviews will be shared on the blog, and of course, new music for your ears to enjoy! Today I want to highlight some of our new sounds. Diversity and uniqueness is what we strive to embody.. These two beats have completely different sounds, but come from the same creative mind.

We also want to highlight some amazing talent that has been inspiring us lately. Billy Marten, a 14-year old singer/songwriter from the UK. Her soft tunes and melodic tenderness is mastered to perfection, take a listen here. In contrast to the dreamy sound of Marten, we are also in love with FKA Twigs, another singer/songwriter, and former dancer, also from the UK. Her track, "Two Weeks" has us hooked! Not only is her music unlike anything else we have heard, her unique and futuristic imagery speaks a language of its own.

Louder Than Words

In light of the upcoming 'Born to Create' campaign, we would like to share with you the very talented photographer that StreetRacer Productions has as of recently been working with - Maggie Wilson.
