103.7 Da Beat Artist Spotlight Alex Takton

When I found out Al wanted to do a song with Too $hort I was like yeah ok, I will see if I can make it happen. One call to the Yay and I was on the phone with DJ Xtra Large and boom it was on like Donkey Kong.

You can't do a song with Short Dog and not spit some nasty rhymes so we chunked down this booty clapper called A$$ and Tiddays. I felt like we might have a problem with radio so I flipped the title to "Tigoldbiddies" In this DJ Service Pack you have the TNA Mix which is dirty and the Tigold Mix which is radio! Thanks for the support! We have a fun year planned!

103.7 Da Beat Artist Of The Week-Kyera


103.7 Da Beat Artist Of The Week-Kyera

You might say that Kyera, a singer, songwriter and instrumentalist, is a unicorn in the music world. Her long, flowing, natural wavy hair, supermodel height, athletic body and "no nonsense" approach to life will command your attention. Kyera's magical energy combined with a deep, haunting, beautiful voice will reach the depths of your soul and take a strong hold of your ears.

A recent transplant from Hollywood, California to New York City, Kyera comes out into the spotlight with the debut of her single "Passion" on iHeartRadio stations 105.1FM in Greater New York, 103.5FM in Greater Miami and 102.1FM in Greater Philadelphia areas.

The studio release was produced by Grammy Award-Winning Mega Producer Narada Michael Walden and features multiple award-winner guitarist and international icon Carlos Santana's legendary musical signature on Kyera's electrifying single.

"Kyera reminds me of the incomparable Nina Simone, "The High Priestess of Soul," said Walden. "She has a distinct sound, look, and delivers timeless music." Kyera counts Simone as one of her influencers, along with Sia, Queen, David Bowie, and Tracy Chapman.

"Ms. Simone was really outspoken and didn't play around, neither does Kyera," said Walden. "We are not used to hearing Nina Simone live, we are not used to hearing that kind of low voice with such natural vibrato like Kyera's and it's wonderful."

Who knew that Kyera's unwavering passion for music and unique sound would lead her on a mystical journey across the country- from New York to Northern California - onto the stomping grounds of Walden, the hit maker.

"My introduction to Narada happened through Entertainment Consultant and Music Producer Raffles Van Exel," said Kyera. "I recorded my song on my iPhone and sent it to Narada, hoping he would like it." Her unique vocals slayed the song. A well-rounded musician, she plays the clarinet, bassoon, piano, and guitar.

"It's her vibe, her music and lyrics that breathes life into her sound made for the world to hear," said Van Exel whose circle of close-knit friends have included musical giants (past) Prince, Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston; and (present) George Lopez, Elton John, Chaka Khan, just to name a few. "Kyera is a breath of fresh air."

"With my music and performance, my intention is the same; to reach out, grab you and indulge your emotions... your heart... you," explained Kyera. "My music ranges from simple to epic, from country to contemporary imbued with Latin strumming and some tribal influences."

That said. It was time to take her skills to the next level. "My life didn't truly start, until I started singing the songs in my heart," proclaims Kyera.

"It is an interesting experience because right now I am living a dream, and yet it feels like it was supposed to be," said Kyera. "I don't have a fluttering feeling that I have to hold on to this because I am going to lose it. I feel I have created a new norm that I am stepping into and it feels very comfortable."

Walden has an impressive 57 number one hits and produced for superstars like Aretha Franklin; Vesta Williams; Al Jarreau; George Benson; Steve Winwood; Phyllis Hyman; Stacy Lattisaw; Al Green; Shanice Wilson; Ray Charles; Diana Ross; Gladys Knight; Tevin Campbell; Angela Bofill; Natalie Cole; Elton John & Kiki Dee; Eddie Murphy; Pointer Sisters; Sister Sledge; Sheena Easton; The Temptations; Whitney Houston; Mariah Carey; and more.

"I am very aware of the magnitude of that new level from which I stepped onto from where I was," said Kyera. "I feel I have always been at that magnitude but the timing wasn't right." She says that everything in her life is now aligned including the purpose of her life and everyone around her.

"My next steps in my music career are: revisiting the old which I may or may not do, creating the new Kyera and forging more collaborations," she said. "My success is a reality."

Kyera shares the inspiration behind her song,"Passion."

The lyrics of "Passion" carries the message much like an anthem to empower people to be courageous and believe in themselves. The track, composed by Walden, is powerful and evokes a sound made to fill up big spaces and ascend to the universe from an amphitheater such as the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, California.

The production of her single is nothing short of what the power of musical geniuses can accomplish and shoot Kyera to new heights in the music industry.

"Kyera's lyrics are on point," said Santana, who has sold more than 100 million records and reached more than 100 million fans at concerts worldwide. To date, among his many accolades, Santana has won 10 GRAMMY Awards, including a record-tying nine for a single project, 1999's Supernatural (including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for "Smooth") as well as three Latin GRAMMY's.

"You will only achieve happiness if you are passionate about what you are doing," explained Kyera. "People don't know that they are missing out of life because they are not tuned into that."

Kyera's mantra is "I'm not going to apologize for my greatness.

103.7 Da Beat Artist Spotlight-Kane Koka

Standing out in a music industry filled with
flashy hype and false bravado makes for
a large challenge. Louis Funches Jr. aka,Kane Koca, took on this challenge with a
focused heart and sharp mind. This
charismatic rapper encompasses a rare blendthat some hip-hop artists' lack. He carries the
soulful, charm of asouthern gentlemen and
the work ethic of a self-made, millionaire;which allows him to deliver a blend of
hype lyrics and feel good music for all fans.
Kane calls two cities home, St. Louis, MO hisbirth home and Blytheville, Arkansas, his
childhood home. In 1999, when Kane moved
back to St. Louis, he took a slightlydifferent journey than most hip-hop artists.
While working on his craft, he pursued his dream
and hustled daily by, maintaining aneveryday job like many people, listening to
all varieties of music, and playing the drums.
This pursuit also allowed him to build aninfluential network within the music industry.

Kane Koca's entrepreneurial spirit,
hustle and musical ambition caught the
eye of rap sensation J-Kwon. In 2008,
he went by the name of Lou Kane and
started performing as J-Kwon's hype-
man, to warm up the crowd for shows.

While on the road his love for
performing grew and he also started
working with music producer, Martellas
Penny. Penny started mentoring Kane
and helped him to sharpen his music
industry knowledge, writing and
freestyling skills. Kane continued to
push himself by developing his brand,
fan base and music network. He knew
his journey took the right path when he
later met famed, producer Tar Boy of
the platinum selling production team
Track Boys, and the management team
of Face Up Entertainment LLC.

After Sean "BD" Caldwell and Mark
Johnson of Face Up Entertainment heard
Kane's song, they knew without a doubt
they had an incredible hit on their
hands. His song "Moneybag" hits all the
marks of a feel-good, hype track with a
catchy hook. Johnson and Caldwell
decided to immediately book a studio
session with music producer, Tar Boy. The
team pulled an all-nighter and recorded
another major hit called "The Gram"; they
plan to release this song as the second
single. Kane also collaborates with the
music production company Three Kings.
He stays grounded in his music
collaborations and family which also
motivates him to make great music.
Kane believes that with the music network
he started building, that they can create
music with positive energy for all fans.

103.7 Da Beat Artist Spotlight-David Ben David


103.7 Da Beat Artist Spotlight-David Ben David

While some of you may know Dream Doll from hit reality television shows such as "Bad Girls Club," and "Love & Hip Hop: New York," Dream Doll is more than just a reality star, she's an artist.

Dream Doll has recently teamed up with Sprayground owner, David Ben David for his new record "I Am Legend."

According to Ben, the collaboration came about when he was creating an Avant-Garde zombie world collection.

Dream Doll was asked to come by the office to initially discuss her collection of bags, which turned into a musical collaboration.

"Dream Doll and I got together, and we brainstormed this whole world that also includes animation. In the music video you'll see this live action and animation going back and forth in this post-apocalyptic world," Ben said. "I'm the last man surviving, and I create my kingdom, but Dream Doll is the queen, and there are these Avant-Garde zombies."

Sprayground was founded almost eight years ago due to a void in the market.

"It was just boring, solid color bags, but I came to mess that up with putting art on good quality bags," Ben said.

For Ben, music and his business of creating bags go hand in hand.

"I would say a lot of my inspiration for the bags comes from music. I was limited as an artist to tell my story because I can only inspire with a visual representation of the things I create," Ben said. "I just jumped right into the music."

Dream Doll, who wrote her verse in 20 minutes for "I Am Legend" hopes that people understand the creativity of the music video.

"This is something new for me because if you check out my body of work, I never did anything like this before," Dream Doll said. "We brainstormed all these ideas and to see them all come true is super dope."

Check out the "I Am Legend" music video below:

Ben has worked with big names in Hollywood like Chris Brown and Odell Beckham Jr. Currently, he is working on projects with Asian Doll, Sand-flower, Valley Baby and Nyemiah Supreme."I've been working on a collaborative effort where you're creating fashion; you're creating music and merging all that and putting it out visually for people to see," Ben said. "The next song and products that I have coming out are with Valley Baby, and that drops New Year's night."

103.7 Da Beat Business Spotlight-StarCrowd


103.7 Da Beat Business Spotlight-StarCrowd


StarCrowd is a completely new approach to the music business. Our online platform systematically develops new music stars - with artists owning all their music and rights, and fans directly funding and profiting from these artists. Record labels sign and pour tremendous resources into only about 3% of music artists. Many of the millions of unsigned, undiscovered artists are very talented and would have great success with this same kind of support. We give them that support and much more on a major scale.

StarCrowd was co-founded by superstar songwriter, producer, artist, Jason "Poo Bear" Boyd. Poo Bear is a 5x Grammy Award winner, who wrote 16 of the 19 songs on Justin Bieber's last album. He also made history by recently co-writing the #1, #2, #3 top songs on Billboard, which included the smash hit single, "Despacito", featuring Justin Bieber.

Benefits of StarCrowd

StarCrowd gives the 20 million+ unsigned and undiscovered artists a real chance at stardom and much more.

Artists simply upload their music and videos. Our music superstar partners, like Poo Bear, will then select the best artist, or they will be chosen by fan vote, for a chance at funding and StarCrowd's major label support.

StarCrowd prepares selected artists for funding by forming their corporations, etc, at no cost. Fans, alongside music superstars and experienced investors, then invest (as little as $50) in these artists via the StarCrowd online platform, or the StarCrowd Reality TV Show, which will showcase our top 10 artists each week.

After funding, artists receive 360 major label support through StarCrowd and its major record company partners. This includes videos, promotions, and global distribution. As Investor Fans track their star artist's rise on the charts, they can track and count their profits on the StarCrowd platform
