Hampton, VA-raised D.R.A.M., born Shelley Massenburg-Smith, stepped into the music scene two years ago. D.R.A.M. is neither strictly a singer nor a rapper, instead, he’s both. He’s inspired by a range of soundscapes and artists, from George Clinton, Bilal to Dipset and Snoop Dogg. He’s garnered success with his #1EpicSummerEP, released in September 2014, which featured the viral single “Cha Cha.” Since then, he’s scaled down & re-released the project as #1EpicEP. GAHDAMN! EP, a collaboration with the Social Experiment, and a slew of singles that are climbing the charts, with the latest being “Broccoli,” featuring Lil Yachty, D.R.A.M.’s collaborated with a handful of notable artists, who he considers friends, such as Chance the Rapper, SZA and E-40.
River Tiber
River Tiber, aka Toronto producer, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Tommy Paxton- Beesley, has announced his long-gestating and highly-anticipated debut full length Indigo will be self-released on June 24, 2016. The new album furthers the silky, midnight-hued electronic R&B aesthetic of the wunderkind's previous EPs [2013's The Star Falls and 2015's When The Time Is Right], and joins an ever-growing catalogue that features collaborations with Kaytranada, Pusha T, Daniel Caesar, Jazz Cartier and more.

Indigo sees Paxton-Beesley demonstrating his unique ability as a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, producer and creative force. He writes, arranges, plays, and records almost every element on every composition, but also uses collaboration as a tool to generate and hone ideas. "Acid Test" is a shining example, as Paxton-Beesley lays drums, bass, synth and cello as a powerful, psychedelic base beneath layers of his airy, soulful vocals. The track also features contributions from members of his live band - Thadeus Garwood, John Mavro, Danny Voicu, and David Lewis.

In two short years River Tiber has developed a global reputation as a producer, not only for the acumen and singularity of vision demonstrated in his own music and collaborations, but also for his work with beat maker heavyweights like Frank Dukes that have lead to vocal placements and session credits on songs by Drake, Travis Scott, Mac Miller, Freddie Gibbs, and more. Last year he also worked closely with friends BADBADNOTGOOD in arranging and playing cello, violin and trombone to the group's Ghostface Killah collab Sour Soul and was one of just three Canadians selected to Red Bull Music Academy Paris.
