We have some new projects that are collabs within G1 Muzic. Carl Lovett added Shut up, Bat to a new son that is definitely going to be a record to remember. This song tells the tale of love and the twists that can come with it. Carl Lovett has two other records where he teamed up with additional artists like "Mr. Loving You For Life" Methrone on a record that is bringing R&B Back. This is going to be one to fall in love with. Carl is also releasing a record with DTO which is another great R&B based Hip-hop record that's already a favorite to the people that have had the opportunity to review it.
Shut up, Bat has a record with hitmaker Prod By Seck tentatively called "Project 82". There is not a release date set yet for this on but the duo are going into the lab and working on a project that is reshaping hip-hop in a respectful manner. Hip-hop used to be about the individual and it was different artist to artist. This collaboration is bringing it back and then some because the Producer and artist are both unique in their approach to music so I can't wait to see, I mean hear the outcome..
The beautiful and talented G1 Muzic Star Nsjae' has a new single and video that will be dropping real soon for the record "The Countdown" as well as working on the visual for her Hit Collaboration with Prod By Seck entitled Stay Weird Stay Free. Stay tuned for more upcoming news from G1 Muzic.

G1 Muzic and G1 Cares partners with the Rock The Vote campaign so we can do our part in making sure people at least know the rights they have. The right to vote is a privilege that many lives were lost in pursuit of so that we all could have the right. This is one of the few rights one can have that is under utilized because it is misunderstood by many.
We at G1 Muzic take part in the campaign not to choose any political side but to make people aware that they have a choice to protect the right to vote. This right is what separates our country from many other countries in the world and there are certain people that do not want your voice heard. The only way to prevent that is to come out of the shadows so they know you are here. Do not wait for things to happen when you can get ahead of them by being informed and aware of the real issues facing your life and what the people you can vote for intend to do about them.
For those that believe in it for themselves, do it for someone who can't or for someone you love. Click on the link and spread the word! Thank You!
Shut up, Bat along with VIDEN, the artist who recorded the original, had recently come out of destructive relationships. On this remix, Shut up, Bat tried to reflect an angry sadness through apocalyptic lyrics mixed with my hip hop track reinvented and infused with an experimental sound.
This record crosses genres because the mood, rhythm and meaning are infectious to a variety of listeners. My label, G1 Muzic, will promote through Spotify ads, social media, internet radio and other platforms.
VIDEN is a musical act consisting of solo artist-cross-producer Alice Kosmicki, based out of the humble town of Lakeland, FL. She has released two albums and numerous singles and is currently in the works with an upcoming EP titled "to think the world owed me anything." She can also be found writing poetry and comic books or hiking up a nearby mountain. She draws inspiration from artists such as Paramore, Florence + The Machine, Stevie Nicks, PVRIS, Banks, and authors and storytellers like Richard Siken and Stephen King.
G1 Muzic Star Nsjae' covers this song by XXXTentacion called Sad which is about suicide. Nsjae' is accompanied by Heather DeSanctis. This was the first of a series of performances by the two songbirds and they promote the fight against suicide.

1. What made you realize that music was your path?
I grew up participating in all sorts of different artistic outlets, and I even considered pursuing music a few times, but there are two main things that happened to me that made me finally decide to go for it. First, I spent a summer (following a pretty disastrous break up) working full-time as a corporate accountant. I was pretty depressed, and the job was only making things worse. I didn't have the time to pursue music, and being taken out of it made me realize it was the one thing I needed. Second, motivated by all of that, I reconnected with Alice (a.k.a. VIDEN), a friend from high school that had started working at a studio and producing stuff on her own. She really helped me out and convinced me that I could do it. That's how BAATS started.
2. How would you describe the music that you typically create?
I used the term "ghost rap" earlier, but that's not too specific. I want to take modern hip hop and trap production, with its full, colorful sound, and marry it to older musical tradition and theory, so the result is familiar, but still complex. My vocals are always meant to tell a story, but like with The Things They Carried, I don't think it's important that the details are all true—only that the emotion is.
3. Who are your biggest musical influences?
Primarily, I love the sound of artists like Jesse Rutherford, Blackbear, and 6lack. It's smooth, it's dark, and it's lyrical, but still moves. I also love the vocals of Lil Uzi Vert—I won't prop him up as a great writer, but he does great things with his voice and really understands melody. And I have to admire Kendrick for all of his thought. You can't listen through To Pimp A Butterfly without sitting in awe of his conceptual genius. Out of place on this list, but a big part of my musical thought is Debussy. I love romantic-era piano compositions, and his are, by far, my favorite.
4. What makes your music unique?
My music is unique because I pull from so many traditions, timbres, and styles across music history. It's one thing to sample a 40s swing track, but it's another to understand how it worked, and to apply that to completely different sounds.
5. Has there been one particular moment in your musical career that you’re most proud of?
No moment can compare to midnight on April 20, 2018, when I saw my music go live on streaming platforms and stores. I worked on that project for well over a year, and I couldn't have been more proud. I had thrown stuff up on Soundcloud and Bandcamp before, but it was my first official release, and it felt like at that moment I had sealed my fate. I ended up running around the entire dorm shouting at people to listen.
6. What’s next for you?
I'm going to keep creating. It's nice to have industry goals, and personally, I do want to hear my songs on the radio, and perform more, and build a fan base. That's the dream, isn't it? But "what's next" for me is always going to be writing something better. I just want to bring art into the world.
7. If you can close this interview by telling your fans and the world one thing you really want them to hear straight from you and not from rumors in the street, What would that be?
I'm not sure if you actually wanted me to answer this, since I'm not really big enough to have any rumors to follow me around. But yeah, I grew up in a suburban middle-class neighborhood, and I'm not about to pretend like my life was hard, or I came up from nothing, or did it on my own, or whatever else people like to throw into their lyrics. I just love music, and that's enough to me.
