More about Azealia Banks:

Azealia Banks is a 20-year-old lyricist from Harlem, NYC. Since her first steps as a child in off-broadway theatre productions to her training at La Guardia High School of Performing Arts -a breeding ground for stars- she’s been steadily perfecting her craft and making a name for herself.

Her very first recording “Seventeen” placed her on the radar of many record labels right away. Word about Miss Banks kept spreading online and in the streets until she caught the eye of several record labels and tastemakers. Classically trained in the Performing Arts, Banks is a truly versatile artist, as showcased on tracks like the infectious Fader co-signed “L8R” and her celebrated cover of Interpol’s “Slow Hands”. A collaboration on the Major

Lazer EP and her appearance in the Nike Sportswear 1Love video series upped her profile in the past couple of years and kept fans waiting in anticipation for her next release.

Now prepping her debut album, Azealia has been teasing her audience with gems like “212” – a certified club pleaser on rotation in dance floors around the globe- in addition to a slew of other records that showcase her range as an artist and will let people know what all the buzz is about. Whether her music hits you with seasoned bars or her angelic voice and hooks, Azealia Banks gives everybody a reason to rewind that track.

Headliner of the Day: Tay Dizm

The music industry is so full of boasting and big egos that it’s refreshing to come across an artist who is both talented and down to earth. Tay Dizm is that kind of artist. His friendship with T-Pain has been a bonus, but at the end of the day, you have to stand on your own. Tay Dizm may have gotten his start in Miami, but there’s no limit to how far his skills and charisma are going to take him. Watch for him at a gig near you.

More on Tay Dizm:

Tay Dizm, songwriter and artist, is the blooming threat in pop-hip-hop music. The down to earth and high energy Miami artist ignites the world one city at a time. This incomparable artist -born Artavious Smith- has made a name for himself with his animated stage presence and humble spirit. “Talk to me and I’ll talk back,” he says.

In 2003, the Miami-native began his journey in Tallahassee, FL with best friend, T-Pain. The two traveled the globe extensively for close to four years, before Tay Dizm was ready to become an artist in his own right. Tay Dizm was able to jumpstart his career by appearing on two of T-Pain’s albums, Rappa Ternt Sanga (2005) and Epiphany (2007). When it came time to pick his first artist to represent his brand new venture Nappy Boy Digital, Pain chose Tay Dizm. He was also handpicked to appear on hard-hitting tracks which includes “She Got It” with 2 Pistols, “Who Da F*** is Dat” with Dolla which charted on the Billboard Year-End Hot 100 singles of 2008. Tay Dizm also appeared on “G-5” with Huey. The release of his first single in August 2008 “Beam Me Up,” which featured T-Pain and Rick Ross has brought him into the limelight.

A strong push at nationwide radio mix shows has helped him gain a strong fan base. The eccentric artist began focusing more on his solo career in 2009 which also was the release of his second single “Dream Girl,” featuring Akon. It was a global success with over 16.2 million views on YouTube. With Tay Dizm’s first leak “Smoke” ft T-Pain, produced by Mr. Beatz ( YMCMB producer) off his “Thank you For Being a Friend” all over the internet, the world is now hearing the best of what Tay Dizm has to offer. As he moves forward in this New Year, the Tay Dizm sound is catching on worldwide. With several awards at his side, including the 2008 songwriting award from ASCAP, and four hot new singles to be released this year, nothing can stop him.

Tay Dizm’s mixtape “Thank You for Being a Friend” was released February 17, 2011, presented by Coast 2 Coast DJ’s and Datpiff.com via Nappy Boy Digital. With a strong love for every individual fan he has, the mixtape cover will be an abstract colleague of pictures of his fans forming Tay Dizm’s face. As a follow up project to his mixtape, Dizm has a new street anthem “Gettin’ to the Money” featuring T-Pain and J-Bo which has spread virally. The energetic artist that fuses pop and rock into his music is making a buzz and the world is now receiving what Dizm has to offer.

“This is what we doing and this is where we going,” says Tay Dizm.








Headliner of the Day: The A-Team

Kevin Lazaroff (producer/engineer), Jon Packles (producer/engineer), Eric Alvarado (rapper), and Travis Dickerson (rapper)

It all started in 12th grade English class when Kevin and Travis met up and discovered a shared passion for music. After recording a demo together, they showed it to Jon and Eric (who had been working on some demos of their own). From there White Lighters was crafted over the course of 3 hardworking weeks in Kevin’s basement recording studio on a $0 budget. The A-Team’s debut mixtape, White Lighters was filled with fun lyrics about life aspirations, and the joy of growing up. Since then, with college approaching they have released a music video for “The A-Team” and played with artists such as OCD: Moosh & Twist and Julius Myth – and this is just the beginning of a new hip-hop scene… one with a soon-to-be ubiquitous question: “Are you fuckin’ with The A-Team?!” Check them out!

Headliner of the Day: Ray Molina

Some musicians have always known what they wanted to do and dreamt of it as far back as they can remember dreaming. Others find their way to it by sometimes unexpected paths. However you come to your musical awakening, chances are once you’re there, you can’t imagine being anywhere else. Today’s Headliner of the day is Southern California native, Ray Molina.


“During the past 5 years though I have lived in Helsinki, Finland, London, England and of course within SoCal. My career (sport scientist) took me to those places, but I have DJed for 14 years, and whilst in those places was fortunate to feel the culture of electronic dance music, especially the European side.

It was not till last year whilst living in London to get my Masters degree that I serendipitously polished my DJ skills and started getting my feet wet with production. This happened because the topic of my dissertation involved helping an established producer/DJ and A&R man improve his performance (thats a whole ‘nother story!). My research for my Masters degree helped polish my own personal DJ skills by being around the culture; upon my completion of my dissertation I began a blog and making mixes under the series, “Pirate Satellite”.

In March I will return to London, and I am in the works of confirming a VERY big date.”

Check out Ray’s beats at his links below, and keep an eye out for promotion requests from him. As he has already proven, Ray is a go-getter, and will go wherever he needs to in order to make his dreams a reality.
