Portland artist sadeyes (Nate Lewis) shares his new single “dropout,” (Epitaph Records)which sees him venturing from lo-fi into cloud-rap with a menacing track featuring a loop of twinkly keys infused into a trap beat. Stroking his own ego with boastful rhymes, he lyrically flexes on his haters and anyone else who’s doubted him, creating the perfect song to vibe to during your next blunt rotation.
He comments on the track, saying:
“I’m ready to be vulnerable with my music again in new ways. I’m not the same 19-year-old kid I was when lo-fi was all I felt like I could express myself with.”
Dave Luv – “Some Days” [Song Review]
Dave Luv drops “Some Days,” revealing the frozen-in-time sensation of pervasive sorrow fused with a nomadic melody and insightful storytelling.
Chicago-based rapper Dave Luv recently dropped his new single/music video, “Some Days,” a track exploring the emotional mutability of being human.
Luv explains, “Life happens one day at a time, and each one is different.”
According to Dave, “Some Days” was designed to convey melancholic feelings, feelings associated with those days when we’re especially vulnerable and sad. Simply because life is made up of variables upon variables, and no one is always cheery.
“Some Days” follows on the heels of “Gunfire,” featuring Reo Cragun, released last year. Where “Gunfire” was more of a party banger blending savors of hip-hop and R&B, “Some Days” rolls out on a moody piano riding a thumping kick drum. Luv’s melodic, rapping flow imbues the rhymes with a poignant singsong flow reminiscent of Post Malone.
The video, directed by Nicholas Jandora, depicts Luv at work, ensconced in a toxic blue office. Wearing a glum clown face, he googles ‘how to be happy’ and consults a self-help book entitled be happy! At home, he moves listlessly, sinking in the quicksand of heartbreak. Kitschy smiley faces materialize throughout the video, underscoring Luv’s absent serenity.
“Some Days” reveals the frozen-in-time sensation of pervasive sorrow fused with a nomadic melody and insightful storytelling.

Rapper Formz’ Music Video Pokes Fun at “Keyboard Warriors” Ahead of Manchester Gig
Rapper and Content Creator Formz takes aim at “Keyboard Warriors” in his new music video. Check it out here…
Hotly tipped UK rap newcomer Formz has quickly emerged through social media where he has
gained over 900K followers with his high energy and relatable music, freestyles and football
related content working with the likes of Google, Pepsi, BBC, The FA and Amazon as well as with some of the UK’s most exciting producers, including Nastylgia, R14 and Roddy Beatz.
His recent single “Keyboard Warriors” is a tongue-in-cheek drill track that pokes good-natured fun at internet trolls. Formz wrote the track after an appearance on Sky Sports to do a summary rap about last season’s Premier League lead to a torrent of abuse on social media.
His natural response was to channel his reaction into his music, so he hopped in the studio with R14 (whose credits include Potter Payper, Clavish, D-Block Europe and Nines) and wrote “Keyboard Warriors”, a shameless flex on people who hide behind their computer screens to troll others.
Check out the music video here:
Off the back of a sold-out debut headline show at London’s Camden Assembly last year, and a nation-wide schools tour, Formz has announced a headline show at The Deaf Institute (The Lodge) in Manchester on February 21st, 2024. The north Londoner, will also be returning to the capital the following month, to headline the O2 Academy Islington on March 14th.
Embodying the message of “Keyboard Warriors”, Formz is currently on a national wide schools tour, talking to thousands of children about his experiences of being an influencer, online abuse and music.
Dom Rivers & Dre Taylor Release New Single “Looking For Love”
Dom Rivers and Dre Taylor, have dropped their latest single, “Looking For Love”. This single, marks a significant comeback for the duo.
The much-anticipated collaboration from the dynamic duo, Dom Rivers and Dre Taylor, is finally here with their latest single, “Looking For Love”. This single, which premiered exclusively on Vents Magazine, marks a significant comeback for the duo, breaking the silence and setting the stage for their upcoming album.
“Looking For Love” is an ingenious blend of classic and contemporary sounds, creating a musical time capsule that resonates with both nostalgia and modernity. It’s a marriage of the shiny suit era of early 2000s hip-hop/pop collaborations with the introspective and innovative vibes of contemporary bedroom pop. The single artfully combines the reminiscent sounds of Frank Ocean and Drake‘s ”Passionfruit,” channeled through the creative lens reminiscent of Kanye West‘s pre-Graduation era.
The song presents a unique juxtaposition of summer warmth and winter chills, perfectly encapsulated in its icy, downtrodden vocal hooks and fiery lyrical delivery. The duo traverses the theme of unrequited love with a backdrop of snapping snares and lo-fi interludes, creating a soundscape that is both sharp and spicy, yet smoothly melodious.
As the track progresses, listeners are taken on an auditory journey through highs and lows, with each verse and hook designed to evoke the best memories of a bygone musical era, while firmly planting its roots in today’s sound. The result is a song that’s far from the typical sappy love track – it’s a sharp, incisive hip-hop piece that demands attention and repeat listens.
Dom Rivers & Dre Taylor have once again proven their versatility and ability to push the boundaries of genre, creating a song that’s both reflective and forward-looking. “Looking For Love” is a testament to the duo’s artistic growth and their unerring knack for blending diverse musical elements in production that is pushing the envelope.
Don’t miss out on experiencing “Looking For Love.” The single is available for streaming and download across all major platforms. Be sure to check out the media kit for more information on Dom River & Dre Taylor and their groundbreaking new release.
