Independent artists are now taking control of their careers and making names for themselves in a big way. Chox-Mak and DJ YRS Jerzy are independent artists working to establish their name in the industry. Their latest single Night Shift has a smooth early 90′s hip-hop feel, mixed with a nice guitar sample that completes the track. The beat smith on this production was brought by common collaborator Dr.G out of Manchester,UK. Peep the track below.

New Jersey duo Joe & Box drop off a visual for their track entitled Splinter, from their debut album, Never Grow Up, that was released today. In the visual Joe & Box find themselves held captive in a prison that seems to be in total darkness, until they begin to tear away the black abyss and discover an unknown world full of possibilities. They must then choose whether to stay in the safety of their known world or stray out into a world where anything is possible. With the help of Charlie X, the duo delivers a solid track that is worth the listen. Peep the visual above.

Devine Carama brings us a new song in collaboration with producer and repeat collaborate DJ Well Blended. This track sheds light on what a lot of men and women can relate to, being friended by a love interest. The record will be a track on Caramas upcoming project Believing In Forever. Carama says “We’ve all been there. The one please that nobody wants to be, but a place you don’t mind hanging out around until you see the opportunity to get to the place that you really want to be. This song breaks down a situation where a guy is feeling a woman that has placed him in that dreaded “friend zone”, only for him to escape and find love with another woman.”
