Honcho Eazy showcases Drippy type of sound on new EP ‘Blue Magic’
BRONX, NY – Milton McDonald’s story is your story. Surrounded by concrete jungles and glorified street life, the artist who goes by Honcho Eazy was determined to monopolize any opportunity he was given. His ambitions come from the same place as legends like Jay-Z, Fabolous and DMX. Growing up in a single-parent home with multiple siblings encouraged him to be the “one who made it.” He’s an inner-city child with Hollywood dreams, and he’s living out those dreams with a fast-rising and successful music career.
His latest EP “Blue Magic” is causing quite a buzz in the music industry and gaining and ever-widening global audience thanks to its blend of unique sounds and styles. Self-described as “Drippy type of music” Honcho Eazy’s brand incorporates the pain and poverty of the projects alongside a modern and catchy sound that is undeniable. He makes Drippy, dance-ready music that captures the pain of life’s hardships but simultaneously helps you forget your worries.
“I’m very creative and different,” he said. “My content is real-life things that have happened, but I’m able to create a different feeling and tell a different point of view of poverty. I have a different, Drippy, unique sound. When people hear my music they’re going to know I’ve overcome a lot of situations and now I’m a person who lives like a boss and overcomes like a boss and aims like a boss.”
With “Blue Magic,” Honcho Eazy showcases four songs that display this unique sound and style. It starts with “Love Standards,” which has a groove that many of the ladies have loved since its release. He calls it his “proclamation of my standards on love,” and an exploration of what it takes to love yourself first before entering into a healthy relationship with someone else.
This is followed by “Drip Step,” featuring his younger brother Q-God. He said “everything about this song is different,” and as such it’s a track that lets people know that he’s coming different with his music. It’s a hype song that turns pain into something good, while presenting a different point of view on the world.
The third track on the EP is “Allstar,” which is Honcho’s most bragadocious single on the project. It’s literally a song that shows how confident he is with his craft. As a display of raw talent and ability, “Allstar” is the perfect single to put himself on display.
The single that’s been getting the most attention, however, is the last track on the album called “Get Treeshy X Flex.” Honcho said it’s really two songs in one, and combined they make for the most hype energy on the entire EP. It has a more “popular” sound, he said, with a party vibe that will certainly get audiences up on their feet and dancing.
“Treeshy can be related to many different things,” he said. “Everyone in New York knows what the word means, so I decided to get more creative and crafty with the word – putting my own style of Drip to it and giving it more feeling and meaning. And then I paired it with ‘Flex,’ which is more of an empowerment type of song. Ultimately it’s me talking about how I got to where I got to and inspiring other people to do the same.”
Honcho said “Blue Magic” is actually only one of three EPs and a full album that he has complete and plans to release this year. “83 With A 30” will be the next release, which should drop before the end of the summer.

Stand-out producer showcases his own music with new double-single release
STOCKTON, CA – Eric Alexander Hall – better known by his stage name Alxndr Blue – is an American singer, songwriter and producer. For the last few years he’s carved out a niche within the music industry as one of the standout producers currently working in the game, operating under the name OFASHO. He’s collaborated and worked with many big artists in California, and now he’s ready to showcase his own artistry with a handful of new singles.
His first official showcase of his sound to the world will be a double-single release of “Right Now” and “Seasick.” Though different in tone and vibe, the two songs play off one another with content. Alxndr Blue calls them a duality of love, with “Right Now” focusing on the positive and happy sides of a relationship with a woman, while “Seasick” focuses more on the toxic things that can come with an unhealthy relationship.
“I wanted to display some versatility and range with this release,” Alxndr Blue said. “Both of them are similar in a way because they’re summer songs. They’re different but similar. I wanted to put them together because it’s like opposites attract. One of them you could play riding in the car, and the other you could play at a party.”
Alxndr Blue said “Right Now” has more of a Pop/Alternative feel to it, whereas “Seasick” has more of a mellow, moody vibe. Both of those styles are indicative of the sounds he has perfected as an artist, though they merely scratch the surface when it comes to the bevvy of genres and mashups he brings to the table as an artist.
Like many musicians, Alxndr Blue started on his journey of becoming a professional musician when he was a child. He would create raps in his bedroom, and had his own little setup for recording. What started as experimenting with Garage Band grew to become a full-fledged producing and songwriting career in his late teens and early 20s. He has since built up a name for himself on the production side over the past decade. But he’s always had the itch to create his own music, and today he’s finally taking that opportunity to show the world what he’s got.
“I think I can go any direction with my music,” he said. “I really want to dive into so many different lanes. I want to do Pop and Hip-Hop and R&B – you name it, I want to dive into it. There are no boundaries. There are no labels. I’m just an all-around artist who uses music to make people feel emotions. If it’s a time when they’re going through something sad, they can listen to a sad song. If they need something to make them happy, they can listen to one of my happier songs. That’s what music has always been for me. And I’ve always gravitated toward the artists who are more vulnerable. I want to be that for other people. I want to be the artist that someone grows up listening to and becomes a fan forever. I want my music to live longer than me.”
Alxndr Blue said he has a number of songs he plans to release this year, and will next be offering acoustic versions of his already released singles before the end of the summer.

I wrote this song with alot of imagination. At the time, I had a lot of creative ideas about a beautiful land with different animals, flowers and fruits and things to do with swings, boat rides ect.. It’s about two friends of 10 years (a boy and girl) that go on an adventure and start off in a forest. They soon end up in this world called “TOKNOWSOMEWHERE” which they age 7 years more. They are excited about their age and bewildered but they journey onward to an adventure they soon will find there’s more to this land than its beauty.
I was entered in a contest hosted by Dj Rick Lee: called “Show me what u got vol.3”. I got my first music achievement award from One Look Entertainment I opened up for Sage The Gemini at the Agenda Lounge in San Jose, CA. My inspirations comes from Sisqo from Dru Hill, Usher and Michael Jackson

Quietchild won’t be quiet with powerful message behind new hit single ‘Quicksand’
MADISON, WIS – The slow, sinking feeling of despair from a broken relationship is beautifully depicted in Quietchild’s new hit single, “Quicksand.”
With sounds that crossover and explore the worlds of Pop and Trap, the music duo from Wisconsin – Cuyler Monahan and Galen Austin – have just released what they proclaim is their “best song yet” on Spotify. It was written as a personal message to a friend, but was instantly realized as a form of art everyone could relate to and enjoy.
“The message was that I understand because I’ve been through the same thing,” Cuyler said. “There’s so much euphoria in a new relationship but sometimes it can end in catastrophe. Those ups and downs – sweeping changes – are life, and we get through them. This song is so much like a painting – you see it once and like it, but the more you stare at it, the more you see and the more you gain from it. We worked very hard on this song to capture this emotion of quicksand.”
Galen’s brilliant Trap beat sets the rhythm to Cuyler’s deep and intimate voice, and then the beautiful contrast that joins the melody is the sweet and angelic voice of Drew “Dru” Dravis. The energy is in the chorus, and the emotion is found in the verse.
“Dru’s voice needs to be out there in the music world and we loved her sound for ‘Quicksand,’” Cuyler said. “There aren’t a lot of artists pushing the limits right now between Pop and Trap, so there’s opportunity in that space. Galen loves making Trap beats and I love EDM so our songs compromise those elements. The best part of making music is surprising the listener – giving them something they didn’t expect to love, or find out it’s something they learn later in life how much it meant to them.”
Galen and Cuyler have come a long way since they started making music together five years ago as high schoolers. But they knew they had something special when they won the 2018 Madison Area Music Award for Youth Album of the Year for their debut album “Euphoria.” Both with musical backgrounds, the friends actually hold two very different perspectives – Galen as an incredible drummer and audio engineer, and Cuyler as a long-time pianist, writer and vocalist.
“That’s what makes music good – differences,” Cuyler said. “We can argue on a single snare sound or how to pronounce a word, but at the end of the day that’s what makes our music so unique and good. We understand the music market is pretty crowded, but there’s space for something new and exciting. I think as music evolves over time, things have changed and we’re a part of that change.”
Quietchild will continue to be everything but quiet with another hit single on the way called “Paris Riviera.” Listen for yourself and find Quietchild on the following links.
Isaiah McKenzie was born and raised in the small city of Greenville, located in South Carolina. He has grown into quite the outstanding artist that fans worldwide have come to know as Zay. His musical influences were magnified by the inspiration of greats like Eminem, Drake, and Lil Wayne, among others. He took this fire for hip hop and combined it with the encouragement and impact of his family and the many experiences that life has brought his way. This gave rise to the talent that has been gaining recognition for his genre blending music and the artform he holds when composing his songs. With his range and diversity in his songs, he is able to create any feel that he wishes. Whether nostalgic, uplifting, motivational, lyrical or even intimate, his is versatile and creative enough to accomplish either. The album is the culmination of Zay’s talent and growth in the music industry. It showcases his diversity along with his wittiness while creating songs that suck the listener into his world. The album isn’t meant for one group of people but was curated to resonate with any that comes into contact with its sound. “Vengeance Without Fear” revolves around hip hop but splices in other genres like dancehall to give a memorable musical experience. The project shows Zay in all his glory, unfiltered with walls let down for the world to indulge. He speaks on a variety of topics that touch the soul, transitioning between not settling for less, valuing the opportunities that await, not letting the outside noise dictate the future, and the dangers of involving the wrong people within your life.
