ICYMI: PRETTYMUCH AT THE PALLADIUM
8/12/19

 The Hollywood Palladium recently welcomed SYCO/Columbia’s PRETTYMUCH on Friday (8/9) for their 2019 FOMO Tour. The summer tour kicked off on 7/11 in Dallas, Texas and will wrap up in Vancouver, BC on 8/16 after hitting 24 cities across America in support of their EP, Phases. The group, which consists of Brandon Arreaga, Edwin Honoret, Austin Porter, Nick Mara and Zion Kuwonu, brought non-stop energy and a full choreographed set to the show, which was directed by Arreaga.

In addition to opening act kenzie, one of Arista Records newest roster additions, pop duo WJM also joined the FOMO tour in mid-July. Kenzie closed out her set with her latest single, “Hot,” before a computerized voice introduced the fivesome by describing the 5 phases of FOMO.

PRETTYMUCH opened with new single “Lying” f/Lil Tjay and covered fan-favorites like “Would You Mind,” “Solita” f/Rich The Kid, “Phases,” and “Open Arms” for their encore. The band also performed an unreleased single “Rock Wichu,” but it comes as no surprise that fans were already familiar with the song thanks to YouTube snippets. Check out their remaining tour dates here.

A GLOOMY RELEASE
8/9/19

Freshman artist glooms, aka Josh Sweiven, released his third single, “Superficial,” alongside a music video on 8/9. The L.A. based singer/songwriter has been developing his sound since early 2017, when he released his debut single, “Voices.” His second single, “Little Hearts,” dropped earlier this year and gave listeners a taste of his genre-blending abilities. His music is an amalgamation of urban, alt and rock elements.

Glooms is repped by OYG RecordsBrendan Barone and LiveYoung.LA's Chris Cary and plans to release a new single every month. Check out the video for “Superficial” below.  

A T.K.O. FOR VALENTINO KHAN
8/9/19

Mad Decent’s Valentino Khan transformed L.A.’s 1720 into a pro wrestling arena on the 8/7 release event for new EP House Party, which dropped on 8/9. Between matches in a wrestling ring directly in front of the DJ deck and surprise guests like Flosstradamus, Phantoms, and 12th Planet, the night was a knockout. Or, to use a more thematically appropriate metaphor, an inverted body slam.

L.A.-based DJ/producer Khan started his career in 2012, making music for hip-hop artists such as T.I., 2 Chainz and B.o.B. After co-producing Major Lazer’s 2013 single “Bubble Butt,” Khan began releasing his own trap-oriented originals. His “Deep Down Low” even earned him the “Most played Track” of the year among DJs in 2015, reported by 1001tracklist.

Khan has since collaborated with the likes of Skrillex, Flosstradamus and Wiwek, among others. House Party brings features from Chris Lorenzo, Wuki and Mad Decent’s own Diplo. Check out House Party below.
