Born in The A (Atlanta), but raised in L.A. (Los Angeles), Roxanne Luciano is an Artist to keep a watchful eye on in 2022 and many years to come. As we slowly ease our way out of a global pandemic, Roxanne Luciano is a sure bet to bring some sick energy back onto the dance floors and into our living rooms across America!  Her mass appeal, driven by high energy beats and dope lyrical delivery, will no doubt guide Luciano to eventually becoming a global Crossover Artist, sure to break-off other female MC's, much like A.I. (Iverson) did to M.J. (Jordan) back in tha day!

It should be no real surprise that Roxanne Luciano is heading down this musical path, as she is the only daughter of 90's music industry mogul, Tony Mercedes.  For those too young to remember, Mercedes burst onto the music scene in '92, prior to Luciano's birth, with the mega Booty-Bass anthem, "Dazzey Duks" by Duice. Mercedes was also the liaison responsible for bringing "Dunkey Butt" (12 Guage) & Tag Team's "Whoomp! There It Is", to both Scotti Brothers & Bellmark Records respectively.  He later became an Executive at LaFace Records, where he would go on to work with the likes of TLC, on their mega-hit "No Scrubbs".  Then, out pops Luciano from the womb and the rest is now evolving into musical history!  "I believe I was born to do this music thang", boasts a very proud Luciano.  "I remember seeing all those Gold & Platinum plaques hanging up in our house and then, of course, learning exactly what they represented as I was growing up".


Twenty years later, nobody could've predicted that Roxanne Luciano's most successful single to date, "Whole Lotta A**/Whole Lotta Cash", would be gaining momentum at such a rapid pace Nationally.  "People automatically thought I'd end up doing Southern Trap or West Coast G-Funk, based on my ties & roots to both Atlanta & L.A.", states Luciano.   "I do love that type music, like Cardi B, Megan THEE Stallion, Gucci Mane & Saweetie, to name a few, and would absolutely love to collab with them in the future... I always loved the energy of Bass music as a kid, but never thought I'd end up doing a Bass record.  My dad & I get a real kick out of the fact that my very first National breakthrough, may actually be a Bass record, of all things".  Luciano's very first single, "Rich Rich", had some sporadic regional success and actually aired on BET JAMS & The Real Housewives Of Atlanta.

The rapid rise up the charts of "Whole Lotta..." is due in large part to its familiarity with DJ's, on the heels of the "Whole Lotta Choppa's"/Sada Baby record, as well as "Whoomp!..." and even the original 80's Techno-Funk anthem "I'm Ready" by Kano.  Add to the equation a super-dope, DJ friendly Remix by DJ Richie Rich from Ultimix/Funkymix, along with the hype vocals of legendary Bass Hype Frontman, 3 Chain Shawty (Formerly of STYLZ & The J.I.Z., Quad City DJ's, Southsyde B.O.I.Z., Southsyde Conn X shuN & Blackout fame), and it's clear to see how THIS formula for success came together... "I'm truly blessed", states the 25-year-old Luciano, "...and I appreciate ALL the support from my 'Roxii's' & the DJ's alike throughout the World!"

Kupid aka Q Drops New Video for "Good Vibes"



Music artist Kupid aka Q has dropped a new music video for his latest song titled “Good Vibes” featuring $kip and TJ Da DeeJay. “Good Vibes” is a track on his highly anticipated sophomore album titled “Thank You", featuring Caribbean artists such as Freezy, Army Guy, Ziggy Rankings, Marzville, King Nitti, Adan Octave, Young Godd, and Cubanis.  His hit songs, “Hey Girl”, “Rant” and “Who Shot Ya” are prime examples of this artist’s universal style. Kupid aka Q has grown an impressive fan base and has been touted by as one of the “10 emerging artists in Hip Hop and R&B music to watch." 

With hits like “Who Shot Ya” and "Rant", Kupid aka Q has been performing at festivals and shows throughout the U.S. while also working on other tracks.  The hit songs have received generous airplay on Pandora, Spotify, and indie radio stations.

Dance has always been an important part of Kupid’s life. It was how he first got a taste of performing in front of a crowd and what eventually led to his start in a music career. A group of high school friends formed a dance group, The Fam, who choreographed their own routines and performed at festivals and events. From that, four of the members created another group consisting of R&B, hip-hop, soca, and reggae artists and called themselves, Crossovah, to describe the movement of how they were bridging the gap between mainstream and Caribbean music. You can find Kupid aka Q performing at shows throughout the U.S. including in his hometown of Orlando, FL.

You can download his album at the link listed below.

Florida music artist CJ The Visionary has released his first single titled “Fall Back”. The upbeat hook in “Fall Back” is catchy and fun. “Fall Back” is a song about enjoying life, having fun, and telling people to be themselves instead of trying to be like others. The single is available on all major streaming music platforms.

“Stop trying to be like everybody else. Fall back and be yourself”, says CJ The Visionary.”  

CJ The Visionary is a Central Florida-based R&B music artist, host on the Reality Intercepted podcast, shoe designer, and CEO/co-creator of the On Repeat music video channel. The single trails right behind the launch of the On Repeat streaming channel that is on Roku and Amazon Fire TV.

CJ always had a passion for music and started singing in the church choir during his childhood years. He was inspired by artists such as Michael Jackson, Prince, James Brown, Marvin Gaye, and Teddy Pendergrass. He was drawn in by the passion and soul that was infused in their music. When he saw Michael Jackson perform at the Grammys, he knew that he wanted to pursue music.

CJ was a member of a few music groups throughout the years, but since the members weren’t on the same page, the plans fell through. Life hit him and he put his music on the back burner, but continued to write songs over the years because he knew he would eventually come back to his first love…music.


“Fall Back” is out now.

Out today through recently relaunched label New Dawn Records, the new single "Smoke Filled Rooms" b/w "Skitzophonetic" by hip hop crew Belles in Monica.
Already on international rotation, "Smoke Filled  Rooms" mixes electronica, turntablism and South Asian flavas to journey into the dark underbelly of the inner city with rhymes depicting a vision of drug squalor hell, while the booming kicks and soaring strings of "Skitzophonetic" provides the dramatic backdrop for a verbal tirade against generic conformity.  Bonus cut "That All U Got?" invokes the spirit of Ali & Foreman leaving industry machinations slumped in the corner, towel thrown.  The art of storytelling has returned on a release spanning all eras.
Taken from the "Natsukashii EP" out June 7th, the second in their 'Lazarus' series following April's "Y'All in Meltdown EP".
More news about New Dawn Records is available from their official website and via their new official social media platforms on twitter @newdawnrecs IG @realnewdawnrecs & FB @OfficialNewDawnRecords

1. Where are we talking from today?

A. I am from Chicago originally but Florida currently has my heart.

2. Where did you get your artist name from?

A. Well, I went through maybe 3-4 name ideas but I ultimately went with the name I was born with, Dahshanae. It felt the most right and really further pushed the motive of truly showing my audience who I am.

3. Music wise what are you working on right now? Are you currently promoting a single or album?

A. I just finished working on my first mixtape, "Relapse" and it is truly my most personal project yet. "Relapse" will be available on all platforms June 17th and the first single and visual from the project, "R.I.A" will be out April 19th followed by a few more really amazing releases so I'm very excited about it.  I found my sound while writing this project. I learned so much about myself and what is and isn't love through this project. More importantly, I learned how to accept my flaws and to take everything that I've learned to make better decisions in life and hopefully be a beacon for others that hear this project and relate to it in some way to help them understand that repeated behavior will have the repeated results. 

4. Who or what were the most significant influences on your musical life and career?

A. I would say who inspired me most was definitely Janet Jackson and Beyoncé. I was literally 4 years old staring at my TV studying Janet Jackson's music video choreography until I had it completely down packed. Same with Beyoncé as I got older. I've just always been obsessed with their confidence, their creativity, their drive. Everything they did was completely genius and legendary and I think myself as well as many girls growing up saw that as an example of true brilliance. When I got more so into my teens, I got into Erykah Badu and fell in love with her voice and her vision. I would say I definitely look up to so many strong women that inspire me to be the artist that I am today.

5. Who are your favorite musicians?

A. I love so many artists and I'm always finding new ones to add to the already long list of my favs but off the top of my head, I'd say Jessie Reyez, Mickey Shiloh, Chloe X Halle, Jhene Aiko, Erykah Badu, Nicki Minaj, and Ariana Grande.

6. What have been the greatest challenges/frustrations of your career so far?

A. My greatest challenges have definitely been feeling unsure of myself and allowing others to make me feel unsure of myself when I am confident in something. I'm a Libra so I'm already very indecisive by nature so getting to a point where I'm completely happy with something can be a long process and can become an even longer process when I have other people in my ear telling me they don't like something I do and that I should do this instead than someone coming behind them and saying they don't like that. I kind of had to come to the realization that not everyone is going to like everything I do and no matter how hard I try, you simply can not please everyone. I had to give myself a mini pep one day and tell myself that I got this and to just go with my gut and that has definitely helped me overcome some of my self-doubts.

7. As a musician, what is your definition of success?

A. Being a musician, many people would say success is selling out shows, getting a #1 on Billboard, and having millions of dollars. Don't get more wrong, I think those things can play a factor in the look of success but I'm more worried about the feel of success. Being able to connect with your audience through your music is huge to me because there are so many people around the world going through things and always have that feeling that it's just them feeling crappy or low key weird or whatever is it. With my music I want my audience to see that they are not alone so people messaging me or coming to my shows saying that one of my songs made them feel better about their situation or made them feel empowered then that means true success to me.

8. What is your idea of perfect happiness?

A. My idea of perfect happiness is being able to create art. Rather it's music, visuals, performances, paintings, etc. As long as I'm creating freely and being able to fully express myself through my art, that is the definition of a happy Dahshanae. Well...that and food.

9. What is your present state of mind?

A. My present state of mind is solely on making my mark. I remember seeing something Left Eye from TLC said in an interview and it really stuck with me. She said that if you can see something you want in your head clear as day, then it is possible. When you believe in it, It starts manifesting into reality. For me, always believing in myself and keeping the doubters far away from my creative thought process and execution is key.

10. What is your most treasured possession?

A. My most treasured possession is hands down my laptop. I feel like my entire life is on it so I'm super protective over it. You can take away my entire studio but as long as I got my laptop, I'm good.

11. What do you enjoy doing most?

A. I enjoy being in my studio from sun up to sun down just writing. For my "Relapse" project, in particular, I really freestyle many of the songs and now it is probably one of my favorite ways to create. You never really know what you're going say so sometimes the melody is everything but I have to go in a switch a few words around and sometimes the melody and the lyrics just fit so perfectly that I leave it alone so it's a pretty interesting process for me.

12. Where would you like to be in 10 years’ time?

A. In 10 years, my only real goal is to be happy and to continue to make music that makes people feel human and inspire them to be unapologetic.

13. Where you @ online?

A. You can find me on all social media platforms @IamDahshanae
