Who is Cherele?
Give me a day in the life of Cherele.
I wake up, thank God, and proceed to put energy towards my purposes.
Besides music, do you have any another passion that keeps you motivated?
Hard to say, but sources of motivation for me stem from love, nature, architecture, visual art, film. Things like that.
What drove you to start creating music?
I feel like it was just engrained in me. Since a child, I had a natural ability to make melodies and write lyrics.
What is your opinion about the uprising Florida underground music scene?
I think it’s beautiful. the scene has definitely evolved, and it
excites me to see all of the talent that’s coming out right now.
From moving to Florida to Atlanta, has the transition evolved your sound?
During the transition, I really evolved as a human and more importantly as a woman, so my sound reflects that.
“I wake up, thank God, and proceed to put energy towards my purposes.”
If you had to work with anyone (alive/deceased/local/mainstream/legends) who would it be and why?
I’d hit that Ye button real fast. And Missy Elliott as well. Maybe get Amy Winehouse on a hook. All different energies and creative minds I’d love to collide with.
After not releasing music for almost a year, do you think it leads you into a clear direction with your upcoming project?
I believe so. it allowed me to take a step back, grow, and find new inspiration. It was almost like I hit a refresh button.
What was the original concept behind your latest video “Yetti”?
The power of women and nature and how they both intertwine. We purposely cast 2 powerful creative women (love to Kangie and Dash Romero) to represent the different types of feminine energy.
What can we expect from your upcoming EP?
Expect a new experience, expect amazing production. LeMieuX and I always make magic together.
What message do you want to send out to any new coming artists who are searching for their own sound?
Don’t be too hard on yourself. be patient and allow the growth to happen naturally. Always remain in tune with your true self; that’s most important.
Miami native K.Charles looks to start off the Summer with a bang with his new single, “Comeback”. Instead of his usually flow, K.Charles fused some demonic type rock essence into the track which is sure to grab everyone’s attention.
On the day of the release, he later on tweeted “Haven’t Dropped A Track In Over A Year But I Promise It Was For A Reason. Ya Bump That Pressure“.
“Comeback” is the first official offering from his upcoming project God Speed dropping later this year. Stream the latest above.
“I expect anyone who’s listening to this project to find a track which correlates to their everyday life or struggle.”
After putting in a lot of work this year, 7Eighty6 member JackCheddah returns with his latest body of work entitled Biscayne Vol. 1. Complete with 8 tracks and all the vibes, the sole feature comes from fellow South Florida artist, SKBABYRUTH.
Speaking with the upcoming Miami artist to get a little more insight of the new release, JackCheddah stated that “The meaning behind the project was to set the vibes for the summer creating a wavy atmosphere for my city. Metro Boomin’ tweeted & he said whatever project you are doing make sure it’s some of the best music that your able to produce if it’s 10 tracks they all gotta be fire and that’s what inspired me to create Biscayne Vol 1.”
Press play and listen to Biscayne Vol. 1 above and hear the dope summer vibes pumping through your speakers.
Miami’s own Space Jam is making his debut on our pages with his latest visual “Tell Me Where.” Director NTRO4K made sure to capture Space Jam in a more mellow state while being joined by his lovely main lady, Le Cherry. From his futuristic tone, you can already tell that Space Jam is bringing something different to the underground South Florida music scene. Be sure to check out his previous EP The Pilot King Kenobi Vol. Iand watch “Tell Me Where” above.
An upcoming Broward artist emerges on the scene with a new hot visual entitled Stop Hating. He goes by the name Remy 99(don’t forget the “99” when you say it). Since rapping at a young age, 99 has been productive with his music and has been making noise ever since his “OOOUUU” freestyle in August. The visual shows 99 getting electrified with his crew, “Troubled Kampers” and they are repeatedly telling the disbelievers to simply Stop Hating ! You can clearly see that he doesn’t care about what others think and believes that he is bound for greatness. You should be on the look out for Remy 99 as from here on, but for now take a peep at his visual, “Stop Hating”.
