B.A.D.A Drops a Statement about Injustice With “Sound of Violence”
While trying to stand out in the overpopulated electronic-indie-pop scene is an ambitious mission.
This is how the duo of NY/LA based artist/producer/multi-instrumentalist Carey Clayton and brazilian artists/producer Pedro Cesario created B.A.D.A.
The NPR-featured self-produced trilingual visual album was recorded throughout 2019 in a cabin in Woodstock NY, the Abbey Road studios in London by the hands of John Barret (James Bay, Daniel Ceaser, George Ezra) – where features of fellow musicians Emmavie, Rayon and the British Youth Choir were added – and then finished in Clayton`s bedroom in Greenpoint Brooklyn, with mixings by Luke Moelman (synth pop duo Great Goof Fine Ok) and masterings by Chris Gheringuer (Lizzo, Janele Monale, Harry Styles).
“We had the opportunity to collaborate with amazing people, but 98% of the recording process happened in isolation” says Pedro.
Their newest track is called “Sounds of Violence” and it has some amazing vocals to really get the listener in their feels. The song makes you really think about the state of the world currently. It combines both psychedelic elements with some funk. Check out the track below.

Trickstaer Wants To Know “When Does It End”
Tony Truong (born October 17, 2001), better known by his stage name Trickstaer, is a Vietnamese American rapper, singer, composer, and record producer. He received initial recognition from the third collection of music, Phantoms of Reiterations: released in September 2020.
Meet Trickstaer, a very odd case from New Braunfels, TX who has just recently put on a mass following, with his latest EP “Phantoms of Reiterations”. Is this just another average wanna-be kid nobody? Underground Hip-Hop fans have turned eyes and answered this question for us. Trickstaer is no stranger to being the underdog, and while newcomers to his music might not understand at first, watching his fans it’s definitely clear to see how much they love what he’s doing.
Our favorite song on his new EP, is called, “When Does It End”, as it has some very unique production. The track has a bouncy feel to it, while also having an underlying emotional aspect that really engages the listener. You can check out the track below.
Josh Fudge is Thinking About the “Second Date”
Josh Fudge is an 18-year-old singer-songwriter that is really making a name for himself in the music industry. He is from Oklahoma City, but is being heard all over the world. Not too much is known about him just yet, but that should change very soon.
His newest track is called, “Second Date” and it reminds us of a Mac Demarco track. The song is about getting bored too quickly in a relationship and growing to miss how things used to be. Nostalgic undertones tucked under a smooth and quaint mix make for a deep yet easy listening Indie/Bedroom Pop experience. As we listened we were brought in by the soothing production, and comforting guitar and synth chords. This song is a stepping stone for Josh Fudge on his journey to stardom. Check it out below.
Pawl and Discrete Drop, “Type Like That”
Pawl is an artist, songwriter, and producer based in Stockholm, Sweden with roots in Lebanon. He began producing songs at 13 years old, and hasn’t looked back. Pawl has since been gaining international recognition through the support and likes of The Chainsmokers, Cheat Codes, and other famous artists.
His newest track is called, “Type Like That” and he teamed up with an electropop connoisseur also from Stockholm, Discrete. The song is one that makes you want to dance from start to finish. It’s a great club track, and as the world starts to open, I’m sure you’ll hear this when you go out to your nearest club (maybe DuPont Circle?). The lyricism is unbelievably catchy, specifically the hook, as it is balanced with the bouncy production. Check out the track below.
