DUCKWRTH – Fall Back (Live) | Vevo DSCVR

DUCKWRTH – Fall Back an exclusive live performance for Vevo DSCVR, the channel for the best in new music. LA rapper Jared Lee doesn’t care for overly specific genre designations or stylistic approaches. So even though newcomers might hear him as an MC, this dread-laden whirlwind, who dropped his first album ‘I’m Uugly’ in 2016, swerves around enough to be deemed a crazed black rocker or a postmodern R&B envelope-pusher or, simply put, an imaginative producer who can equally impress you with a guitar riff or synth line.

True, he came up in South Central when Snoop, DJ Quick, Pac and others ruled the local radio, and their subject matter was gang banging. But thanks to his mom’s heavy hand at child-rearing, Duckwrth stayed out of trouble and was more into X-Man and comic fantasy characters. He fell for music before too long, though. Wielding the kind of try-anything vibe you find in OutKast’s best work, Duckwrth moves with the kind of experimental vibe you hear in Jaden Smith’s work. That’s what made his collab with The Kickdrums so unique. Spend an hour absorbing everything from the burb beats of “Bernal Heights” to digi-groove of “TAMAGOTCHI” and you’ll know why we were excited when he came in to roar through the new “Fall Back.” Crank up our exclusive performance – Duckwrth gives it his all on this one.

Drake ‘Nonstop’ by Theo Skudra

Theo Skudra takes inspiration from the most iconic music documentaries of the 70s, in this Super 16mm fly-on-the-wall-style music video, for Drake. We follow Drake from backstage at his performance at Wireless Festival, to a private party at Annabelle’s – where Quavo, French Montana, and his OVO comrades make cameos. Then a quick high tea on the rooftop of the Dorchester before riding through the centre of London on a double-decker with Giggs.

Less than a month after he released his chart-topping Scorpion album, the 6 God delivered the Theo Skudra-directed video for standout cut “Nonstop.” It takes place in London, where Drake enjoys a tea party solo, as well as turns up at the club with his OVO crew. The video includes a few special cameos from the likes of Quavo and French Montana. It also explains what Drake was up to earlier this month when he was filming something on a double decker bus. Footage from his performance at Wireless Festival is shared throughout.

Drake’s got another video in the works for his No. 1 single “In My Feelings.” Based on what’s been shared on social media, the video is directed by frequent collaborator Karena Evans, is set in New Orleans, and will likely feature cameos from City Girls‘ Yung Miami, Big Freedia, and Shiggy, the latter of which played a pretty significant role in the song’s success with the #DoTheShiggy viral dance challenge.

Next month, Drake and Migos will embark on the appropriately titled Aubrey & the Three Migos Tour, which kicks off Aug. 10 in Kansas City at the Sprint Center. The start of the tour, which was originally scheduled to begin July 26, was pushed backearlier this week “in order to deliver the high standard tour experience our fans expect and deserve,” according to a Drake spokesperson.

Phoebe Bridgers – Scott Street (Live)

Phoebe Bridgers – Scott Street an exclusive live performance for Vevo DSCVR, the channel for the best in new music.

It’s a real skill to wax forlorn without submitting to the depths of despair. In the last two years Phoebe Bridgers has shown us just how articulate she can be regarding the troubled side of life while still touting the small joys that mark most day to day experiences. Again and again, the singer-songwriter revels in the marvels of the emotional deets that shape who we are. After critics erupted over the eloquence of the 23-year-old’s ‘Stranger In The Alps’ (get the ‘Lebowski’ reference?), the Silver Lake-based Bridgers went through a wave of Joni-Jackson comparisons. Elements of the masters dot her songs, but some of her more recent heroes are Sun Kil Moon’s Mark Kozelek and Elliot Smith – tender wordsmiths whose best work is both vulnerable and poised. If you know Bridgers’ “Smoke Signals” and “Motion Sickness,” you might’ve heard her “Scott Street” before, too. But not like this. Our DSCVR performance turns the tune, inspired by a sunset stroll through her Echo Park hood, into an epic lament. Swirling fiddle lines and cloudy guitar flourishes prove the singer knows exactly what she needs to bolster her designs as she closes with farewell line of “don’t be a stranger.” Masterful.

Boyzone – Because

Boyzone have just dropped the lead single from their upcoming final album, a catchy, country-tinged number co-written by hitmaker Ed Sheeran called Because.

As well as Sheeran, the emotive song features writing credits for Ronan Keating, Amy Wadge and John Shanks and will be released as part of their final record Thank You & Goodnight which will be released on November 16.

The song’s singalong attraction is highlighted in the video, which sees Boyzone perform in all-white suits on a TV screen while Ronan, Keith, Mikey and Shane all belt along with the track at karaoke.

The video also features clips of Boyzone fans from all around the world singing the hook.

Thank You & Goodnight also sees the Irish boyband collaborate with another special guest songwriter in the shape of Take That’s Gary Barlow on Love.

Boyzone recently announced details of the Thank You & Goodnight farewell tour that commences next January including a show at Dublin’s 3Arena on January 24.

While announcing the tour they said: “When we started out as five young Dublin Northsiders, eager to face the world, we never imagined that we’d still have an army of fans some twenty-five years later…

“If you’d seen our famous first TV appearance on The Late Late Show (skip to 6 minutes for that epic dance routine!), you’d probably be surprised too!”

They continued: “But what followed was the stuff of dreams. We’ve played stadiums and arenas all over the world, released six albums, and had almost two dozen hits. We really can’t put into words just how much you, the fans, have supported us along the way. Without that support, we would have never achieved what we have, and for that we’re eternally grateful.”

Ebenezer – 53 Sundays (Live) | Vevo DSCVR

Ebenezer – 53 Sundays an exclusive live performance for Vevo DSCVR, the channel for the best in new music. Ready to hear a little gospel? Good, because Ebenezer is ready to preach.

The UK singer showed up to our performance space with a chorus of four vocalists and took everyone to church on one of his newest songs, “53 Sundays.” It puts the passion in the foreground, and it makes you want to watch the young performer a whole lot more. A handful of artists know that Ebenezer has plenty of skills. He’s worked with Craig David, Ty Dolla $ign and Jeremih, and split tracks with Rejjie Snow and Col3trane. Last year he caught a nice buzz with “Cliché,” which he deemed “a testament to who I am.” So is last year’s “Ask Around,” which finds the young MC hitting the gas on his swag. Ultimately, it’s that kind of authority and daring you hear in his voice – there’s no mistaking the spirit when Ebenezer has the mic in hand. Roll through our exclusive take on “53 Sundays” and wait for the goosebumps to arrive. Ebenezer gives it everything he’s got.

Jax Jones, Mabel – Ring Ring ft. Rich The Kid

Hello, are you there? Are you ready for a summer song with dance-pop appeal and island rhythm? Jax Jones wants to be your go to hip shaker with “Ring Ring,” a collaboration with London-based singer Mabel with a feature from New York City’s Rich the Kid.

The English producer is no stranger to chart success. His breakout “I Got U” with Duke Dumont reached No. 13 on the Hot 100 in 2014, and he’s held strong with solo productions “You Don’t Know Me,” “Instruction” and “Breathe” in the past year.

“Ring Ring” has a certain richness to it, a sensual depth to counterbalance the catchy pop hook, a definite groove to get things heated as the sun goes down. Rich the Kid, who you can catch this summer at Hot 100 Fest in New York, also helps out on the chorus.

Jones released “Ring Ring” with a playful visual that’ll have you reaching for the snacks. Enjoy the guiltless ear candy below.
