Drummakid _ "Here Goes Nothing"

The brand new Krugang/Zip Records release by Drummakid "Here Goes Nothing" is racking up major action on the American Hip Hop charts. 

Late September/early October shows positive traction at #15 on the NACC Hip Hop charts!  This includes all the non commercial radio stations in the entire US that have any hip hop programming!

Regionally in the US, Drummakid is #2 at WDWN (Auburn, New York) and a shout out to Whitewater, Wisconsin where the EP is also at #2. Who would have predicted that Drummakid would be #3 at the powerful CUH in Honolulu, Hawaii??

And say "aloha" to being #9 in Walla Walla  (Washington).

Check out for yourself what the Americans are putting out on their airwaves - listen and love "Here Comes Nothing" - out all over the planet. 

Drummakid has taken his act on the road. Currently on a tour in the Netherlands with Dope D.O.P. See below for tourdates.

Ed Rogers live in NYC

The definition of "pop music" is elusive.  However, if we assume that pop music is rooted in a sense of time, melody and culture, Ed Rogers is a master of the genre.

New Yorker Rogers' newest album "T.V. Generation"  has deservedly been receiving glowing reviews and he has recently traveled west to Los Angeles and east to England to share his talents with new and old audiences. 

Ed Rogers  appears next in NYC on October 6 at Pangea (178 2nd Avenue). Together with special guests, this will be a night you won't want to miss. Tickets available here.




New single Drummakid "Go Down"

With well over three million streams for his first two singles, it is time for a new one!  Dutch "jack of all trades" (drummer, rapper, arranger, producer) Drummakid is dropping single "Go Down"  on August 25 and it ain't like you've heard before.  With more than a tinge of Afro-Beat , the song is easily recognized as a close cousin to "Zonin" and Hi-Freq Girl".   

Drummakid is gaining strength at US radio and this fall we expect "Go Down" and the new EP to continue his heavy rotation/chart action in the US. 




Jelka van Houten - First the Benelux.... then the World!

The debut album of Amsterdam's Jelka van Houten is now available outside the Benelux region!  August 25 is the official launch of "Hard Place for a Dreamer"  and now the rest of the world can enjoy the 12 sweet and sincere songs which give the term "singer/songwriter" a good name.  Dutch fans know Jelka from numerous movie and television appearances yet "sight unseen", she has also drawn the praises of numerous music veterans in Nashville and Memphis. 




"Here Goes Nothing" - HERE comes something! New EP by Drummakid

Zip Records and Krugang announce the new EP by Amsterdam's Drummakid is out. It is in stock wherever you lay your head. "Here Goes Nothing" is a five track album and it is chock full of beats and instantly likeable tunes. Drummakid's first single from earlier this year ("Zonin") has two million plays on Spotify alone. "Burn some" and the other four songs are heading in the same direction. College radio will be the target in September for "Here Goes Nothing'".



Snowapple Europe Tour

Snowapple are crisscrossing the European and Baltic zones this summer.  Not only are they gracing the stages in their native Netherlands; these formidable girls are teaming up with their Mexican counterparts to play festivals and clubs in Italy, France, Germany and Latvia.

This is a rare opportunity to see the expanded band and the cambia inflection which drives their songs almost (and sometimes) into dance music. 

From July 20 to July 30 Snowapple play a trio of venues in Riga, Latvia and they will bring more smiles to the faces of folks in the Latvian outback when they sojourn to a couple of smaller cities. People of Latvia will not know what hit them. 

The Latvia tour is a homecoming of sorts for Snowapple's Laura Polence. When she left Riga, little did she suspect  she would ever return with a couple of Dutch songstresses and a Mexican wonder band.  

The Low Country also has a lot of Snowapple in store for them. Between August 3 and August 19, Snowapple +  (Osito, Cynthia, Omar and Dante) carouse the audiences at "the coolest" of the many August festivals in Holland. 

Wanna see Laurien (of Snowapple) dazzle the Baby Burn Festival (Amsterdam) with an impromptu climb to the outer edge of a construction crane?  This is a GRAPHIC 20 second video so please be warned!  (see below)

Snowapple's latest album "Tracks" can be heard wherever and whenever you are ready.
