VIDEO: Grammy Nominated Kumar’s “It’s Alright”

VP6628

Singer/Songwriter Kumar has released his single It’s Alright. The track is the first single from his forthcoming full-length album on VP Records. Produced by Robert Livingston and Llamar “Riff Raff” Brown and written by Kumar, the pop infused reggae track is a perfect introduction to the artist. Listen here

 

Kumar first captured the spotlight as the lead singer for acclaimed roots reggae band Raging Fyah. With distinctive haunting vocals, Kumar picked up a 2017 Grammy Nomination for his work on Raging Fyah’s ‘Everlasting’ as well as millions of streams across Spotify and YouTube. With extensive touring in Europe and the States, Kumar has shared the stage with artists such as UB40, Tribal Seeds, and The Green, to name a few.

In the studio Kumar has put out a steady stream of collaborations including recent duet alongside Alborosie (still with Raging Fyah), the re-imagined Metallica classic “The Unforgiven” in a reggae style, receiving millions of streams across Spotify and Youtube and mainstream radio support in the states. In late 2018 after lengthy deliberation and meditation, Kumar made the decision to leave Raging Fyah and pursue a career as a solo artist focused on pursuing his own artistic vision.

Synopsis: One of the biggest characters in funk history, Morris Day was an aspiring drummer who became the embodiment of cool. The iconic frontman might have had a different life altogether, if not for childhood friend Prince Rogers Nelson, but he made a Faustian bargain with the future superstar, and the result was Morris Day and The Time. Though the band skyrocketed to the top with hits like “Jungle Love,” resentment festered and the rivalry between the two singers reached a breaking point. Years later, a reunion show at Prince’s Minnesota mansion brought The Time back to the stage, allowing Day and Prince to make peace before the latter’s untimely death.

GEORGIA ANNE MULDROW Shares Video for Album Title Track “Overload” Out Now On Brainfeeder

unnamed-1

Georgia Anne Muldrow unveils the video for “Overload” directed by Capricorn Clark of Harun Creative. Addressing “the process of building loving relationships in spite of the malfunctions of Western society”, it’s the title track from her new album – widely regarded as her finest work to date.

 

Released on October 26, 2018 via Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder imprint (a record label deeply embedded in her birthplace Los Angeles, with a ton of shared history, shared beliefs and a united vision of the future). It was justly acclaimed by Pitchfork (8.0) who paid tribute to her eclecticism, experimentation and individuality: “The restless avant-garde soul singer is still reinventing rhythm and blues for the future.. the epic scope of Muldrow’s body of work forms the funkiest of odysseys.”

 

“Overload felt like such a contrast between chaos and control that I wanted to find a subtle way to relay – in a way that allowed the non-core fans to meet her and gave the core a champion,” explains Capricorn Clark. “Aretha Franklin kept coming to mind, and an image of her in her dressing room kept coming back to me, so I built a world around that. Georgia is a huge being. She emotes this light, but she isn’t aiming for the spotlight, so I had to bring the light to her.”

Watch the video for “Overload” HERE.

Los Angeles, CA  (December 4th, 2018) - Red Bull Music  will return this February to the City of Angels for the next installment of the critically acclaimed international music series. Kicking off February 7th, Red Bull Music Festival Los Angeles 2019 (RBMF LA) will explore how music intersects with film, gaming, photography and more, as well as partnering with groundbreaking artists from Los Angeles and around the world for special performances and lectures. The festival made it’s Los Angeles debut in the Fall of 2017 and this year’s installment follows six acclaimed Red Bull Music Festivals in New York City, and the festival’s Chicago debut this fall.

 

 

The 2019 festival’s programming includes the launch of Swedish pop-royalty Robyn’s North American tour, taking place over two nights at the historic Hollywood Palladium. She re-emerged for the first time in several years this past May at Red Bull Music Festival New York to deliver a powerful public lecture and re-teams with Red Bull Music to bring her spectacular live show to the city for the first time since 2010, performing songs from her new album Honey.

 

 

Some of hip-hop’s brightest young names will also be part of RBMF LA. Valentine’s Day will see a special evening with rap’s dynamic duo Rae Sremmurd. Couples and singles will be treated to their eclectic and energetic live show which will also include some very special covers of iconic love songs of past and present, all within the halls of a historic bank vault in Downtown Los Angeles. Acclaimed hip-hop photographer Gunner Stahlhas documented the rise of a new generation of hip-hop stars. RBMF LA will bring Stahl out for a DJ set featuring a range of special guest performances with recognizable faces from his work.

 

 

Rockstar Games’s Red Dead Redemption 2 is an epic Western outlaw story with an equally impressive 80-hour score, spearheaded by composer Woody Jackson of Grand Theft Auto V soundtrack fame. Red Bull Music has partnered with Rockstar Games to reimagine this extraordinary piece of dynamic score as a unique auditory installation. Fans will be able to experience a full ensemble performance featuring Woody Jackson, experimental Indonesian duo Senyawa and more musicians featured on the game’s score.

 

 

The festival is also working with the Los Angeles-based multi talented collective Illegal Civilization. Known initially for their skate videos, IC has become a leader of youth culture. Headed by polymath Mikey Alfred and fresh off a collaboration with Jonah Hill on his film Mid90s, Alfred and his crew are programming Illegal Civ Movie Motel–a day-long event at the iconic ’50s-era Pink Motel. The event will feature a crew of IC musical affiliates including Tierra Whack, Tommy Genesis, Show Me The Bodyand more, a mini-skate park, late night film screenings, a community swap meet and more.

 

 

San Cha, who will take her explosive and visceral artistry to new heights. The show will be based around the telenovela programs of her childhood, and will feature artists across a range of LA’s artistic disciplines.

 

 

Center Channel, an ambitious film series exploring the most compelling intersections of sound and film. Red Bull Music has collaborated with curators from LA’s local music and film scenes for premieres, screenings, panels, and live performances. Center Channel will offer a vibrant and versatile community space in the historic Ukrainian Cultural Center on the border of Hollywood.

 

 

Stay tuned for more programming announcements and festival details to be shared in early 2019.
