C.P DUBB works with RamRiddlz again on this new release, “Dem Callin” featuring Playboi Carti.
It’s been quite a year of transition for Ramriddlz, the Mississauga singer who first came to prominence with the spring one-off “Sweeterman.”Something like eight months since that drop, he’s embarked on a new wave, linking up with OVO and playing shows across the U.S. and Canada. Finally, he’s releasing his first piece of new music since this summer’s P2P EP. The track, produced by frequent collaborators Jaegen and C.P Dubb, features a verse from new friend Playboi Carti. Over a characteristically slow-burning beat that sounds like the post-Hennessy slump he sings of, Ram delivers some of his most memorable one-liners to-date: Babes just wanna Ramriddlz and chill; Eating good, call me Uncle Phil; Everything halal so no pepperoni. We’re crying.
“I’ve been out in L.A. for the past couple months working on my next project and did a few appearances and show. At one show, Playboi Carti was also there. We kicked it off and vibed with each other. Brought him over to a studio where I record at, Jaegen cooked up a beat and C.P Dubb threw his touch on it. With all the drugs and drinks being passed around, the idea of being fucked up and have bitches ringing up our phones too often became the song itself,” Ramriddlz told The FADER over email. “Ring ring for the dingaling,” he added.
Premiered a day early via Billboard, exclusively listen to the brand new collaborative EP, Work, from Chet Faker & Marcus Marr. From Detail Records/Downtown Records, grab the EP: http://geni.us/7xV

Congratulations to Izzy Bizu on being nominated for a BRIT’s Critics’ Choice Award.
via The Telegraph
Twenty-one-year-old Izzy Bizu has been on track for this kind of nomination for the past couple of years. The South Londoner first pricked the attentive ears of Emeli Sandé and producer Naughty Boy during an open mic night in 2013.
Within months, her self-released EP Coolbeanz debuted at number three on the iTunes RnB chart and she had supported her Critics Choice predecessor, Sam Smith, on his tour. She’s already brought her infectious blend of soul, pop and RnB – think Solange meets Ella Fitzgerald and Florence Welch, whose records sound tracked her childhood – to Glastonbury twice. She is set to release an album next year.
Izzy Bizu has been named by VEVO as ‘One To Watch’ for 2016. Previous VEVO ‘Ones to Watch’ have included James Bay, Years and Years, George Ezra, Ella Eyre and Sam Smith.
Artists chosen for will be showcasing their talents at a series of exclusive performances for the website during November and December available to watch at www.vevo.com Here is the full list and video:
