The talented collective of bars-focused rappers from Brockton, Massachusetts, Van Buren Records, has released a new video for “JUMPSTREET”, a key track off their new EP, Black Wall Street. The high-energy and animated track is only enhanced by these captivating visuals, with the video capturing the allure of “JUMPSTREET” perfectly. The video is an exciting exhibition of the diverse artistry in the group, showing off the boldness of their style. In the fashion of Van Buren Records, everyone on the song shines, with each of Jiles, Luke Bar$, FELIX! & Invada’s verses building on vibrancy of the last––all amounting to an outstanding track.

With a name inspired by a fictitious street gang from an episode of Seinfeld, Van Buren Records is a 13 member collective comprised of rappers FELIX!, Luke Bar$, Jiles, SAINT LYOR, Meech BOLD, Invada, and producer/emcee multi-hyphenate, Andrew Regis. Regis is joined by fellow producers Ricky Felix and Kiron Akil, and engineer, R. Louie. The crew is rounded out by the designer, Moses Besong, and creative directors, Shelby Narcisse and E. Each group member plays an integral role in the collaborative process, and each emcee has their own unique voice, style, and identity. Together, Van Buren Records are an eclectic group with an original sound, best exemplified on their recent singles “MEDIC” ,“BRAINDEAD”, and “CASH RULES”. “JUMPSTREET” follows this month’s “CULT” featuring Jazz Cartier, another visual highlight from the five-song collection produced by frequent beat-maker AzizTheShake.

Hailing from Brockton, Massachusetts, the first majority Black city in New England, Van Buren Records boasts a cohesive sound that has catalyzed mosh pits across their home state and beyond, igniting a new phase in the greater Boston area Hip-Hop renaissance and creative community at large. Receiving critical praise from Pigeons & Planes (Best New Artists of April), NPR (“Favorite Albums Of 2021” list), Lyrical Lemonade, and UPROXX, as well as an Instagram story cosign from Brent Faiyaz, Van Buren Records is commanding 2021 with a Bad For Press full-length album and now, a fresh, follow-up Black Wall Street EP. This month, Van Buren Records performed for the first time in New York in L.A., finally engaging their dedicated fanbase face-to-face and bringing with them the charisma and skill one would expect from the group. They will also be playing in their home-state of Massachusetts on 9/24 at the Paradise Rock Club in Boston.

Minister Yvonne releases official music video for “Give Me Rest”

Hot on the heels of her recently released ‘Faith’ album, UK-based singer-songwriter, Minister Yvonne releases a powerful fifth video off the album, titled ‘Give Me Rest’.

The mouthwatering visual is available now on YouTube and can be viewed below

The singer who doubles as an HR Specialist with the British Armed Forces said that this song was inspired by Matthew 11:28 “Come unto Me, all you who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

The 2021 UK-based Gospel Artiste of the Year at the Ghana Music Awards UK added that “the world is full of stress and we face challenges, hardships, trials, wearies everyday of our lives that sometimes makes it difficult for us to subdue and have dominion. The song is therefore a sweet invitation for those who are labouring to seek rest from God”.

The melodious ballad-themed song since its release on last Friday night has been garnering numbers on social media.

“Give Me Rest” was produced at the UBBS Studio. The song is powerful, edifying and refreshingly soothing – from the lyrics that cry out to the soul of the listener to the production.

In the music video, Minister Yvonne is seen in multiple locations throughout the bold aesthetically appealing video – including sprawling and lush outdoor nature scenes and a dungeon where she is choreographically surrounded by dancers and eye-popping costumes.

The video features Minister Yvonne in a number of incredibly striking looks, donning a slew of designer looks in the song’s accompanying visual. Then the scene switches to a dungeon where chained Minister Yvonne is seeking for rest, salvation and freedom from hardships.

The fashion doesn’t stop there, however. Never one to miss an opportunity for a head-turning costume change in which Minister Yvonne later switches into a custom print ensemble—a gothic yellow Victorian ball gown.

Directed by FiMenz, the ‘Give Me Rest’ visual is a well-conceptualised piece of work, full of pleasant activity, gripping images brought to life by the sheer sweetness of sound. The production concept, scenery, costume and lighting beautifully synchronise with the sound rhythm.

Minister Yvonne has always believed that Gospel music videos can compete on a level playing field with many mainstream videos in the industry.
