Flame-haired singer/songwriter, beatboxer, and guitarist Ed Sheeran’s eclectic blend of acoustic pop, folk, and hip-hop has been championed by everyone from the underground grime scene to American Oscar winners. Born in Halifax, West Yorkshire, England in 1991, Sheeran released his first EP, The Orange Room, while still at school, and his first two albums, his self-titled debut and Want Some, by the age of 16. After moving to London to gain more live experience, his performance of the self-penned “You Need Me, I Don’t Need You” on YouTube channel SB.tv gained half a million viewers and attracted the attention of actor/R&B star Jamie Foxx, who invited him to appear on his Los Angeles Sirius radio show.

Securing a deal with Elton John’s management company, he supported Example on his U.K. tour and, after signing with Atlantic Records, he became only the third artist to score a Top 75 album purely on download sales, when his No. 5 Collaborations project, a star-studded seven-track EP featuring Wiley, JME, and Devlin, charted at number 47 in 2011. That same year he released his major-label debut studio album, +. The album was a massive hit, selling over a million copies in the U.K. alone in just six months, and charting highly in many other countries. Sheeran then went about boosting his profile, co-writing songs for One Direction and Taylor Swift. He toured the U.S. with Swift on her massive 2013 arena tour, and saw his song “I See Fire” featured on the closing credits of the smash hit movie The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.By the end of 2013, Sheeran shifted his focus from performing to recording his sophomore album with Rick Rubin and Pharrell producing. Keeping with the mathematical theme, the album was titled x (“Multiply”). Appearing in June 2014, x encompassed his acoustic/hip-hop hybrid sound, but also had an R&B feel in places along with straight-ahead pop. The record debuted at number one on both the U.S. and U.K. charts, reached gold or platinum status in 15 countries, and the singles for “Sing” and “Thinking Out Loud” both topped the British charts.

Phil N Good & Shurwayne Winchester – Stranger

phil-n-good-shurwayne-stranger-coverThe concept behind Phil N Good is pretty simple: make and play music that will make people feel good. Although the group is just gaining a footing and new to the scene, it’s headed up by industry veterans, DJ Hapa (co-founder of Scratch DJ Academy LA and host of Feel Good Sound on DASH Radio) and J Rythm (Another Dirty Night on DASH Radio). The third member in the group is rising producer/DJ, Dirty D, who brings his youthful energy and sound to the trio.

“We feel like our sound is pretty unique. We blend our DJ and dance music background with live instruments and vocalists to give our remixes texture while still maintaining the groove. We also bridge a lot of genres and sounds and above all else, its always gotta feel good.”

Phil N Good has been received well through its handful of remix releases in the early part of 2016, garnishing close to 1 million total plays on Soundcloud. Their remix of Rihanna’s “Work” is over 500k plays and has been shared and praised by notable blogs The Dancing Pineapple, Tropikult, and AUX London to name a few. The track sat on the Top 10 for Hypeddit for a record 6 weeks in a row and was a sought after download by DJs all over the world through sites like DJCity and BPMSupreme.com.

Originals are on the way too, with the first one “All To You” which gives a nod to Ghost Town DJs, My Boo, but gives it a deep, tropical treatment.

Cherish – One Time

16797712_10154597723019011_238479404361123191_o
Atlanta-based R&B quartet Cherish debuted in 2003 with the single “Miss P.” produced by Jermaine Dupri. They had inked a deal with Warner Bros. imprint Ashanti Records, but for undisclosed reasons, their first release, The Moment, was shelved and never saw the light of day. Nonetheless, amid the “snap music” craze in the mid-2000s, Cherish rebounded in the summer of 2006 with hit single “Do It to It.” The single stood for several weeks in the Top 20 of Billboard’s Pop and R&B/Hip Hop Charts. The four King sisters — Farrah, Neosha, and twins Felisha and Fallon — began singing when they were between two and six years old, but started doing it professionally when they were between seven and 11. After they left Warner Bros., they found a rapport working with popular Atlanta producer Jazze Pha.

They signed to Pha’s imprint Sho’Nuff Records and obtained a distribution deal through Capitol Records. To help promote their “Do It to It” single, Cherish released an instructional video over the Internet on how to do the snap dance. Unappreciated, their Capitol debut, was released in August 2006. ~ Cyril Cordor
