“Partyat4’s artistry allows him to combine rap and classic R&B effortlessly to establish his musical style and flow. This talent inevitably seeped into his bones at a young age, as he is a Milwaukee, Wisconsin native. A ground that is known for producing artists with natural finesse and cool character. His name, originating from a mixtape he spontaneously dropped years ago, speaks to all those that encouraged him to pursue music from the beginning. From his school friend to his uncle and cousins, he knew a love for music would forever exist within him. This passion drives his desire to mix, produce, and write most of his tracks. He cherishes the opportunity music provides to be authentically himself.” // Discover more on Spotify…
Most Editorial Placements
“The Heavy’s osmosis rise was swift. Within a year of their 2007 debut album Great Vengeance And Furious Fire the band made waves Stateside, tipped by the likes of Rolling Stone and SPIN, then a live performance of ‘How You Like Me Now?’ – the lead single from 2009’s The House That Dirt Built – on The Late Show With David Letterman punted them straight into the American psyche… The band expanded the scope and ambition of their sound over 2016’s Hurt & The Merciless and 2019’s Sons. They return in 2023 with their sixth album AMEN, an exhilarating maelstrom of ‘60s R&B riffs, horns, and gospel harmonies, which is set to be the freshest and most revitalized record in their canon yet.” // Discover more on Spotify…
Best Sync Placement
“Bryce Green is a rapper, singer, and hip-hop artist whose fierce lyricism bursts forth from the speakers like a Spartan warrior charging into battle. While his rap verses jab and weave, as if grappling in a death-match with unseen enemies, Bryce’s melodic singing seems to float above the fray, with all the grace of a seasoned R&B star. This “float like a butterfly, sting like a bee” attitude, combined with his electrifying charisma, make Bryce one of the most exhilarating hip-hop artists to emerge on the scene in recent memory. Bryce has landed placements on Bel-Air, Peacock, HBO Max, Bally Sports, ABC, VH1, Hulu, Red Bull, and he’s not done yet. More to come!” // Discover more on Spotify…
