Cleveland artist Tweak on the Beat has dropped off his latest project, titled One & Only. This 7-song EP showcases the rising producer’s signature style, consisting of unique melodies and crunchy drums that draw the listener into this EP’s versatile soundscapes. With a growing discography that includes previous collaborations with standout names like E the Profit, Paris Bryant, Freshie, Slatt Zy, YFL Kelvin, Ezri, and more, Tweak has been rapidly gaining momentum for his infectious, character-rich production. His latest, One & Only, is chock full of memorable points, with dynamic beats that range from hard-hitting hip-hop to melodious, bright R&B.
One & Only kicks off with the poignant “Like A Dawg,” featuring Cleveland legends Kipp Stone and DJ Kristyles. “Like A Dawg” includes an elegant soundscape built around graceful strings and unique keys from Tweak that makes for a silky, emotionally dense backdrop for Stone’s dextrous, sharply lyrical flows. “ICE,” featuring powerful vocals from E the Profit, makes for an EP highlight with its dense, hard-hitting rhythm section and wintery keys.
“Want it Bad” finds Tweak and collaborator Paris Bryant delivering a versatile cut that is different in sound than the first two songs, with its more musical, airy style that draws from R&B.
Closer “MUD” is poignant as well, with its layered, grand instrumentation containing bouncy 808s, raw, elegant keyboards, and crisp, slapping percussion underscoring Yayo da Cartune’s urgent, captivating flows.
Overall, One & Only is a hard-hitting, dynamic project that captures a variety of influences and sounds for an eclectic and engaging offering.

Know Self Is A Valid Standout For Pioneering His Musical Masterpiece Diverting Him Into A Viral Sensation
Know Self sounds like a valid standout for pioneering his musical masterpiece, diverting him into a viral sensation in a time when music can seem overcrowded, and everyone is always looking for super dope music to take in. To stand out as an artist, you must have a presence, commanding energy to you that everyone knows you’re the person they came to hear as soon as you speak on a track. That is a significant factor in standing out, and that’s what Known Self is all about.
This week we talked with Know Self, who was kind enough to share his journey through the music scenes. Who is Know Self? Sounds unfamiliar? How does he intend to carve a mark with his music? Check out the interview below and let us know your views in the comment section below.
Let’s start by introducing ourselves. You know the basics, like name, age, and where you’re from, as much or little as you’re comfortable sharing.
Know Self: My name is Jereme, and my stage name is Know Self.
I’m 30 years old, was born in Burbank, California, and moved to Denver, Colorado, when I was 2.
What’s the best advice you ever received concerning music?
Know Self: The best advice I’ve received is persistence is the key to success.
What would you have done differently if you knew then what you know now?
Know Self: I would not have taken all the no’s so personally If I knew then what I know now.
What is still your biggest challenge?
Know Self: My biggest challenge today is getting my music to a more expanded audience.
What keeps you going when things get tough in the music industry?
Know Self: When things get tough, I check out of the industry and go back to writing mode. Writing is my therapy to keep going in life and music.
If you could open a show for any artist, who would it be?
Know Self: I’d like to open for Brother Ali and go on tour with him if I could open for anyone.
Please talk me through your creative process.
Know Self: I typically always write in my car in a beautiful nature spot. I park and listen to the beat repeatedly until something comes in. Sometimes I ask the higher power what to write about and will get inspiration quickly after that. If I get blocked, I move energy, get out of my car, and go for a walk. The rhymes usually begin to flow again at this point. I always write, then re-write and edit. I have multiple drafts typically.
How do you solve productivity/scheduling problems and reduce overwhelming situations?
Know Self: I find returning to “self” is the best way to maneuver stressful situations. Yoga, working out, getting in nature, and meditation are how I get back to balance when stress is high. I work, make music, and take care of a family now. It’s a lot to maintain.
What are you focusing your time on now?
Know Self: I just finished an album that will be releasing 11/11/22 called R.I.P. (Replenishing Inspiration Proper)
I plan to play shows, and I have a baby girl on the way, due in February, which will fill my time.
How do you currently feel about the state of “Your genre” in general?
Know Self: I feel like the hip-hop genre requires help, it’s lost a lot of its original elements, and my goal has always been to “bring it back,” interweaving conscious, heart-centered hip-hop into the mainstream.

See Your Shadow Songwriting (SYS) Gets Crazy on New Single Release
See Your Shadow Songwriting (SYS) releases “Crazy Things Like That.” It’s the follow-up to their Top 10 National Radio Hits Top 10 single, “Take it to Your Grave.”
With a mission to create truly iconic music that has been crafted by a diverse group of musical geniuses, See Your Shadow Songwriting (SYS) has announced the release of their latest single, “Crazy Things Like That.” Releasing on Friday, October 28th, 2022, the single is already picking up steam at radio, where it was among the Top 5 country singles added this week, according to the National Radio Hits chart. The new single follows up their Top 10 NRH Country chart hit, “Take it to Your Grave” (#7.)
Artistic Director for SYS, Michael Coleman explains the song: “Crazy Things Like That’ was originally written for a finalist for the television program, ‘The Voice.’ When that finalist was a no-show for the meeting that was scheduled in Nashville, the song was placed on the shelf and See Your Shadow held onto it. It wasn’t until SYS relaunched and formulated its new sound that the piece was finally given life.”
Michael continues, “I sat out to write something very visual and very fun. The beauty of this piece is that you can close your eyes and listen to it, and it is like you are watching a video, you really get the visuals.”
