Kev Gray & The Gravy Train released their new single “Time To Live Again” on July 14th, 2021. The title received the “Best Alternative Release 2021” award from the english-language ELITEMAG.ONE and positioned itself in the top 10 of the pop charts in Germany shortly after its publication.

Kev Gray & The Gravy Train are an alternative pop rock band formed in Tokyo in November 2008, with members from America, Canada, England and Japan. After being chosen as a feature band in the government-sponsored, UK-Japan Year 2008, the group achieved mixed success on the Japanese music scene, after signing to Hemlock Music and twice winning the national music award, Gaijin Sounds. Based around the songwriting of lead singer, Kev Gray, their sound has drawn comparisons to melody driven artists such as Paul McCartney, The Smiths and Antony Hegarty. After starting as an acoustic trio, the band later went electric and became known for its array of vocal and musical styles, before the band rebuilt its original sound in 2013 with new personnel in Tokyo: “Pon” (guitar); Shokei Konno on percussion, Mari Uga on sax, and Rob Moreau (mandolin). They developed a national following after touring in Japan, including Hard Rock Cafe, The Crocodile Club, and headlined events at the international music festival, Japan Music Week. The group have also played in England, Australia, Canada and America, and much of SE Asia.

The group featured frequently in the Japanese media, including TV, radio and press, receiving strong reviews in Metropolis,Japanzine, and Time Out, whose editor, Jon Wilks, described the songs as demonstrating “lyrical genius”. Their first release, Shipwrecked, in November 2008, was closely followed in May 2009 by I Should’ve Stopped There, with their troubled album, Antidote, finally released in October 2011.

The young artist CINDO69 has obviously created the best conditions for the success of his new song “Traphouse”. An established producer team, a strong label and internationally acclaimed promoters and members of the Grammy Recording Academy® are behind the rap artist Mete-Can YILDIZ, who started on July 23, 2021with his “Traphouse” number. Freely under the motto “Tell me what you dream of?”, the song is about a spot of a gathering of young people with visions and the only desire for social recognition through only material values. The title describes the thoughts of many young people who are conveyed wrong values in society and in the media.

The title was first introduced by Dj Superjam on PELIONE and Dj Doc-Tone on BIGFM and currently occupies second place in the Top20 urban charts in germany.

DJ Superjam, producer from Germany, who led WEA/FOUR Music recording artists Prophets of Rage in the 90’s and worked with several Hip Hop Büro Berlin artists for the then label Def Jam Germany in the 2000s. Now in 2021, he releases a new album with Republic of Georgian rapper, Pash Lyfe and the multi talented American male vocalist Chivas Kimber to bring you Game Time! This 14 song Hip Hop Hop / RnB album is as versatile as the countries where these artists originate from.

From the energetic club banger Game Time, the grimy relationship track Lackin Love and coming up track Bad Bad, smooth tracks like Something Real, the street sounds of Facts and even the anthem with a reggaeton style titled Georgia, there is something for everyone in this collaborative effort that was created simultaneously in three countries.
