CHARLIE PUTH IS MAKING MUSIC HIS WAY!


Charlie Puth says of his recently released sophomore album “Voicenotes” –“I’ve wanted to make music like this for a very, very long time, but I almost wasn’t, dare I say, allowed?” “The hardest thing was just getting people on board, convincing people that I did write good music. “Granted, I mean, just four years ago my music was not nearly as – in my opinion - good as it is now,” said Puth, “So I don’t blame A&Rs for looking at their phones while they were in meetings with me and half listening to the songs.” “No one wanted to hear too much jazz in pop music”. Charlie wanted to prove that it was possible. “It just took a couple years for me to get better at producing and get better at writing and then I didn’t have to try to explain it to them anymore. I would just say, “Here’s the 3 min. MP3 proving that you can put jazz chords into a pop record and it could do really well on the Billboard Chart.”

Puth is doing more than really well on the Billboard Charts and about to kick off his 2018 tour this week with gal pal Hailee Steinfeld! I’m gonna help kick off your weekend featuring a custom HK remix on Charlie's new track.

DON'T SAY "NEVERMIND" TO DENNIS LLOYD'S HIT TRACK


Dennis Lloyd grew up in Tel Aviv where at the age of 8 he began playing piano and at 13 taught himself to play guitar. He attended an art school for Jazz where he says people told him not to sing. Lloyd states “If I would have listened to them I wouldn’t be here”. At 21 he moved to Bangkok to focus on writing songs and producing music and it was there that he wrote Nevermind. Lloyd attributes the success of the song partly to an article that his mom gave him about a kid in Denmark who made a remix of a Nathan Goshen song and it blew up on Spotify. “So I remixed my own song and it worked. No one knows I did it, most people do not know that I’m producing it myself from beat stage to the master.” His self-remixed track has been a pan-European/international hit and just entered the U.S. Top 40 Pop Chart this week.
