Toryia - No Favors
Toryia gently reminds us that she doesn't need nothing but the truth on her latest release, No Favors.
Releasing tones as light as air, Toryia harmonises over slow strummed guitar strings, attention grabbing drums and a textured beat created by UK producer, Jsuis Roman.
It's a co-write by Toryia and Syon that narrates a story that many individuals have endured.
The two express the duality within love itself on No Favors, highlighting the standard concept of when love is good it's great, but on the flip side? It can become sour, toxic, soul diminishing, empty if you don't get a grip on yourself. Thankfully in this narrative, love is found within thyself.
"I wanted to express how I felt in a situation from my own experience.
I wanted to be able to support others in the same situation.
We as humans tend to loose ourselves when in toxic, love - life situations and in times like these we are in dire need of uplifting. I wanted to say something that I needed to hear during this time" - Toryia.
No Favors dwells within relatability, and its aural delivery instantly claims the status of a hit.
Toryia and Jsuis Roman covered heartbreak and healing with their musical combo.
Toryia has a garden full of seeds ready to sprout with an EP on the way along with multiple live performances.

News flash, emjaysoul and Station Hayds are viciously killing it on their track, DEVIL'S WATCHIN'.
Featuring a sample by Dennis Farnon, DEVIL'S WATCHIN' is submerged in instrumental theatrics.
emjaysoul added extra seasoning with his arrangement, and it's hella spicy.
On the flip side, Station Hayds rushes in verse after verse spilling lyrical eminence. He's like a raging bull without the excessive shxt, aiming straight for the head and leaving listeners in a satisfying Hip Hop coma.
It's devilish, blazing with heat, sonically delectable.
"DEVIL'S WATCHIN'was written during the peak of COVID in 2021, hence all the Corona bars. I was in a massive creative block and Emjay started sending beats through after we connected. The production on this song sounded futuristic yet aggressive. It gave me space to get all my frustration out about working during quarantine, watching the music scene from the sidelines and the mindset every artist has / should have of being the best. I’ve definitely found my flow and perfected my personal style subsequent to this, but it indicates the start of a new wave of artistry.
Shoutout to emjaysoul - Station Hayds.
If the DEVIL IS WATCHIN', these two most definitely clocked it.
emjay and Hayds remind us that musical chemistry is essential, while showcasing the essence of Aussie creatives.
It doesn't stop here, emjaysoul has confirmed that they have more collaborative releases stored in the pit, waiting to be released.
So while y'all do the waiting, we'll be running up DEVIL'S WATCHIN'' on the IYCM rotation.

J.B.T - POP SHHH
With one eye open, J.B.T stays heavy exposin' on his controversial track POP SHHH.
Bar after bar, J.B.T serves witty-conscious rhymes, a sharp flow and an energetic bass filled beat, created by J.B.T's long time producer Soappy.
Spittin' honesty and good intentions, he captures listeners by flexin' on his reality check.
He's a man with passionate delivery on worldy discussions regarding the government, though he isn't afraid of getting personal about his roots and influences. It's simple, he POPS SHHH.
"I was going through a bad situation at the time, and i just kind of wanted to let out my frustrations about how life can bring and keep you down even while you're out here grinding.
I wanted to talk about the dishonesty of the government, how our voice doesn't matter, and how we should be aware of all the agendas going on.
The words POP SHHH means to me,
handling your business even though theres alot of things trying to bring you down, and anyone that knows me, knows this is what i do" - J.B.T.
Chosen just like Jordan, J.B.T has a mission that is clear on POP SHHH. He's committed to revealing his truth and THE truth, and that truth comes bouncing with some HYPE production!
"Soaapy and I have been making music the last 4 years now. He produced most of my first
mixtape “BURN SZN: CITY ON FIRE” (2020). Since then we've been making music non stop. I orginally wrote POP SHHH to a Freddie Gibbs song, Soaapy just matched the bpm of the song and made the beat around it"- J.B.T.
We can reveal that J.B.T has more music releases dropping this year, complimenting his latest tracks DiffRents featuring rapper Kiid Koda and his First Class cover.

Tee - outro / everything
Ethereal meets a composed delivery, swaying in a midnight blue depth on Tee's track outro / everything.
Tee never hesitates to share her inner dialogue, and she does it so well over her signature dreamy, decelerated beat produced by her right hand, Ayten.
outro / everything indulges in transparency, BOLDNESS and a touch of bittersweetness.
Tee's endowed with vulnerability as she softly expresses organised chaos, accepting her regret of a chapter ending.
"Outro / Everything focuses on healing.
It's a song that signifies a chapter closing and a new season opening, and coming to terms with what could have been.
A certain peace that passes understanding - Tee".
Harp chords transport you to an angelic realm while the slowed down tempo leads to a remote frequency, that only few are courageous enough to tap into.
"We wanted a soulful melodic sound, almost like I was whispering.
Ayten has this way of blending and merging sounds together effortlessly, my vocals only added to the original sound and it was honestly an honour to have them merge together" - Tee.
Witnessing the chemistry between Ayten and Tee is musical magic, they effortlessly present harmony and balance and turn those principals into sound, while diving deep into their artistry.
Tee has plans to release two more songs that include collaborations from two different producers and hopes to announce a performance in the coming months! Tap into Tee's frequency by listening to outro / everything on the IYCM UNCVRD playlist, available below.
