One of Australia’s most unique and prolific artists, BLESSED has become renowned for his ability to blur the line between hip hop, punk and everything in between. A guitar-wielding rapper, singer and producer inspired by Jimi Hendrix, Kanye West and Kid Cudi, his new mixtape Music Is The Medicine is a testament to his ability to transcend genre.

On the mixtape, BLESSED explains; ‘Music Is The Medicine is a sonic piece on self love, growth, understanding and the generational hunger for hope. This mixtape is a multi-genre sequence of songs shifted into different frequencies that affect the body and subconscious mind in an enlightening nature. Music can match moods and influence positive or negative emotions. With this project, I want to use the ethereal feeling of sound alongside introspective and reflective lyrics to reach a broken generation.’

Since releasing his debut single as BLESSED in 2016, Ghana-born, Western Sydney-raised Blessed Samuel Joe-Andah has been challenging the ideals of a traditional rock star with his multifaceted talents in songwriting, production and creative direction. Aside from his own overflowing catalogue, BLESSED has an impressive inventory of collaborations, including his ongoing relationship with 404 HUMAN, a French production-house known for their work with artists like Migos, Young Thug, SAINt JHN and Kojey Radical. Other close musical-confidants include the likes of Manu Crooks, the Kid Laroi & Milan Ring, while he’s also lent his considerable talents to the likes of Bikini Trill and COL3TRANE.

With his production influences spanning across hip hop, punk rock, RnB and folk, he spends his days perfecting his craft inside his studio. BLESSED has built a music world that encourages creative expression, imparting his influence on not only his collaborator’s releases and his own, but the wider musical landscape.

On the live front, BLESSED has played Field Day Festival and supported Matt Corby on his national tour last year. Under his previous moniker Miracle, BLESSED toured with Tyga, Rick Ross, Childish Gambino, ASAP Rocky and ASAP FergHe also sports some impressive credits; having three songs featured in Netflix’s On My Block as well as his track ‘Superfly’ featuring on the NBA 2k20 video game.

With a passion for working with up and coming talent from across the country and an incredible ability to challenge genres, BLESSED is a force to be reckoned with. The world has never seen an African-Australian rock star and BLESSED is destined to break the mould of what modern music is.

Ghanaian Duo Brisen And Sikapa Release Their Debut EP “Salvation Story”

Published

GHANAIAN DUO BRISEN AND SIKAPA RELEASE THEIR DEBUT EP SALVATION STORY scaled

Bright Senanu Tsa ‘Brisen’ and Emmanuel Sikapa ‘Sikapa’ make up the Ghanaian duo Brisen and Sikapa. The duo’s style of Christian music is distinct, fusing Afrobeat, Hip Hop, and R&B. Through familiar melodies and captivating rhythmic views, their approach advances the gospel. They create music for every occasion, setting, and emotion. The goal of Brisen and Sikapa is to spread the message of Jesus to everyone in the world through their music and way of life.

‘Salvation story’ is, in essence, our salvation story. We are the result of God’s grace. God’s grace, love, and mercy came at no cost to us. However, they cost God everything! They cost Him His only son’s life.

God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it (Ephesians 2:8).

 

Sonically, the EP is made up of songs from various musical genres (Afrobeat, HipHop, and R&B).

We poured our hearts into these songs, and we pray they are a blessing to you.

‘Salvation story’ is out now, and is available on all major streaming platforms.

dESH.DUBS collaborates with Jo Elle for exhilarating new song ‘Luna Shine On’

Published

DOS 191
dESH.DUBS’ collaborative new single with Swiss artist, Jo Elle has him deliver yet another infectious sound and a critical, exhilarating message to anyone battling suicidal thoughts. Stream or download ‘Luna Shine On’ across all major music platforms here: https://li.sten.to/lunashine
‘Luna Shine On’ opens with inviting whistling sounds that segue into a chorus of creeping basslines, soft guitar riffs, and hard drum drops; soon introducing the now-familiar toasts of the Zambian-Dutch artist alongside his new guest: Jo Elle, a singer-songwriter and former snowboarding champion. With light vocals, she brings a sweet distinction to the new song, beautifully complementing the DUBSTAR’s raspy tone. Together, their voices create a powerful blend of melodies that are bound to keep listeners hooked and as dESH admittedly shared: “The moment Jo Elle recorded the vocals for the hook, I knew I had to release this song as a single!”.
 
But there’s more to the new song than its melody and the answer lies in its inspiration: “I have struggled with suicidal thoughts and depression for a long time myself”, dESH revealed. “I had to address the elephant in the room and let anyone battling with such thoughts know that no matter what, the sun always shines! I want these wonderful people to stand up and fight against these ill feelings while flaunting their individuality, which is why I capture the song in a positive light”.
 
dESH.DUBS, whose previous release – ‘DUBSTAR’ – saw him tinker with Drill, continues his recent trend of versatility here as well. His new single again seeks to prove that he is an artist of no limits: “‘Luna Shine On’ reiterates that my music is all about experiences, expression, and the inspiration that I get from around me. That is why I want to be remembered for my versatility and experimental nature, and trying more new sounds is the way forward”. Aside from this, dESH.DUBS is also hoping his new song finds many, as his message highlights an issue that is widespread yet relatively undiscussed in today’s society.
 
‘Luna Shine On’ was produced by Tom of Big Bad Beat (Finland), recorded by Marcel of Mosound Production and mastered by dESH’s long-time collaborator from Amsterdam, Ivo Statinski.
