Agolo – Skales

By admin on Oct 11, 2017 in New Music - 0 Comments

With his career on a steady rise, Afro Hip-Hop act; Skales has hit the Nigerian air waves with his new single titled ‘Agolo’.

Produced by Chopstix, ‘Agolo’ is a blend of Yoruba traditional sounds and contemporary acoustics that makes it suitable for contemporary and traditional dance steps.

‘Agolo’ is a refreshing blend of old and new sounds which give the song a whole new vibe that looks sure to become the toast of music and dance lovers.

In the intro, Skales sings in Yoruba; ‘Mo le jo lori agolo’, an interpolation of an old folk tune stylishly reinventing music from the yesteryears.

On the release of the song, Skales said “I decided to do something truly African, something dance, something hip, with a tinge of the culturally old school. No matter your mood, you must move your body to this one”!

‘Agolo’ is definitely a hot club banger!

Beat234 – CEO – Open Letter – Finally We made it !

By admin on Sep 10, 2017 in Uncategorized - 0 Comments

It’s 3 years now in Celebration since the establishment of Africa’s biggest Online Instrumental Store BEAT234.COM.

Our birth month September means so much to us and we have decided to show our appreciation and love to our visitors and customers. We have a positive and Inspiring message to every Music Producer Out there.

They said you couldn’t do it. They said internet producers’ worth to the industry was insignificant in measure compared to the rest of the music industry. They called us the crazy kids who “leased” beats online and sold themselves short. They said leasing beats was unprofessional and some even said they would never stoop this low to collaborate with independent artists. Some even called the internet producer movement a cancer.
I wholeheartedly disagree. I call it a revolution and clash of the music minds. Like all new disruptive things, most don’t understand it and are quick to demonize its unfamiliar purpose. Those who do understand will be the first to relish in its glory. Which many of you already have.

WE ” BEAT234.COM ” are the result of an oppressive industry that never really embraced technology and collaboration. The same way Hip Hop was created as a voice for disenfranchised artists, online beat selling is built from the same foundation of rebel kids that refuse to be told how and where they can establish their voice.
So today, I am proud to proclaim that YOU did the unthinkable, the unfathomable, the unquestionable and the undeniable. YOU didn’t let anyone form your purpose for you. YOU made the decision to be your own entrepreneur and control the fate of your music career. YOU and thousands of others contributed to the largest grossing month in online beat selling history generating over $1 million dollars for the month of August in the United States of America. We are slowly growing in Africa and music producers are advancing to the Online marketing of Music beats with Us.

For them, this might not seem like a big deal. But for US, those that worked tirelessly to spread the gospel of this beat culture, those directly responsible for millions of songs created and shared around the world, this is a huge milestone. The 1st of many.

With all of this said, I’ve never been so proud to be part of a movement that’s not only in the business of changing the landscape of music but also in the business of changing lives.

Wherever you are in this world reading this, just know the community see’s your hard work. Every hour you put into building your career is not going unnoticed. I applaud you, I am grateful for you and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for all of us. Beat makers & Music producers rise.

One Love,
Ogun Thomas
Managing Director / CEO

Adewale Ayuba – My Lagos

By admin on Aug 25, 2017 in New Music - 0 Comments

Just like you must have heard alot about many people who arrived Lagos with just a pair of trousers, two shirts and a pair of shoes well Ayuba would proudly tell you he was one of them.

In those young years of all fun and play, Ayuba who was the last child of his parents took the bold step of visiting Lagos and this is where his wild dreams would emerge.

He reminices on his youthful days where he would stand in the presence of potential record label owners and sing for them, these gentlemen then would laugh so hard at his unique style of music, it would take them a very long time after the western world could see and feel his uniqueness to know how valuable the African voice of a youngstar who wanted to stand out would be. His journey would continue and in Lagos his dream would gain the light that spread beyond his dreams and across oceans.

 

‘My Lagos’ was written by Ayuba and specially dedicated to every single person who has made it big; Igbo, Hausa, Yoruba, Black or White

Listen to some part of his daring lyrics below, he has still maintained his style nonetheless.
