Dude Low Embarks On A Synth Pop Adventure With New Single “Amnesia”

“Amnesia” introduces a cosmic synth adventure that’s bound to take listeners on a therapeutic trip. 

French indie pop-rock artist Dude Low is back on January 13 with his latest single, “Amnesia,” to introduce a cosmic musical era. The single surrounds the idea of escapism and embarking on an otherworldly journey. This is the first single of many new tracks to come from Dude Low, all of which will explore the artist’s Ego Trip – which is the name of his upcoming album – and personal discoveries through solitary therapy. Melancholic synth layers and a punctual hip-hop beat create an almost magical sensation of following a rabbit hole, even if you’re unsure of the ending.

Releasing with Fogwood Records, “Amnesia” will be available for streaming on January 13.

The lyrics in “Amnesia” hit home for anyone feeling lost or uncertain about any aspect of life – “I’m just looking for some lightning coming out from the dark. I’m just looking for action buried in the abyss,” Dude Low sings. Certainly, everyone can relate to yearning for an escape from reality the last two years. “Amnesia” provides a sense of comfort in knowing you’re not alone in wanting a break from the real world. “We’re waiting, searching, and maybe for nothing,” says Dude Low.

Dude Low, the modern proletarian, is back for 10 tracks with rich sounds that explore his wandering Ego trip. From his headquarters (Rennes), he calls for a journey after a year of solitary therapy, far from his tribe: humans. Neither too political, nor too fatalistic, Dude Low spits on what annoys him without claiming to know the solution. Through beats that rub up against hip hop, the artist wants to be uncompromising by creating his own artisanal mix ready to swing his left hook in the unbearable gloom of routine, or by enhancing it with a melancholic caress. Who said romance was dead? Not Dude Low. Life is like a Wes Anderson movie, it all depends on how you perceive it. Gathering momentum from a run of shows in France, Dude Low has wrapped up recording sessions in anticipation of his upcoming album Ego Trip on Fogwood Records due to be released April 2022.

Kendrick Lamar’s Houston Blockade, ‘Not Like Us’ Allegedly Banned from Local Hotspots

Kendrick Lamar

The decade-long feud between Drake and Kendrick Lamar has reached new heights, marked by a series of scathing diss tracks that have captivated fans worldwide. It all began with “Like That,” followed by “Push-Ups,” and escalated with “Euphoria.” However, the night of May 3rd was unforgettable, as “Family Matters” sent shockwaves through the hip-hop community, only for “Meet The Grahams” to leave everyone stunned.

The day after this historic showdown, Kendrick Lamar dropped another bombshell with “Not Like Us.” This track quickly became the anthem of their beef, holding the number-one spot globally for weeks. Yet, despite its immense popularity, Houston seems to be a notable exception. Reports suggest that several establishments in the city have allegedly banned “Not Like Us.”

The reasons behind this apparent ban remain unclear, but speculation points toward Drake’s influence. Drake, known for his frequent visits to Houston and ties to local mogul J Prince, could potentially sway such decisions. However, no concrete evidence supports these claims. DJs in Texas, beware—playing “Not Like Us” might not go down well.

What do you think about this situation? Is Drake pulling the strings behind the scenes? How do you feel about Houston clubs acting as if this track doesn’t exist?

Soulja Boy Dodges $10M Bullet in Assault Case Linked to Alleged Miscarriage

Soulja Boy

Soulja Boy is breathing a sigh of relief after a major win in a long-standing legal battle. The rapper, known for his hit “Crank That,” was on the hook for a $10 million lawsuit filed by a woman identified as Jane Doe. The lawsuit, which dates back to 2021, accused Soulja Boy of sexual battery, assault, and infliction of emotional distress, claiming the incident led to a miscarriage in 2015.

Doe’s allegations painted a disturbing picture, asserting that a simple conversation with Soulja Boy quickly turned violent. According to her, the rapper became irate, punching her in the face and chest, and then kicking her in the stomach after she fell to the ground. These actions, she claimed, resulted in her miscarriage.

The hefty lawsuit sought $5 million for pain and suffering and another $5 million for emotional distress. However, in a surprising turn of events, Soulja Boy managed to avoid the massive payout by attending a deposition before the end of the month. During this deposition, he denied all the accusations, and it was revealed that Doe’s claim that he hadn’t attended a deposition was false.

With this development, Soulja Boy has successfully dodged the $10 million judgement. What are your thoughts on this outcome? Does it cast doubt on Jane Doe’s accusations, or does it highlight flaws in the legal process? Share your opinions in the comments, and stay tuned to Honk Magazine for the latest updates on Soulja Boy and other music industry news.
