Suga Boom Booming on up to THE TOP OF THE CHARTS! Dominating PlayMPE!

If you’ve been paying attention to the news from Blue Pie and DJ Central lately, you might be asking yourself what else could go right for Down3r? With all his new releases and advancements in plays, it’s not hard to see his career as peaking. But if you’ve ever climbed a mountain before, you might know the sensation of thinking you’ve reached the summit, then as you scramble up to the next ledge, you can see the peak stretching up higher than anything you’ve climbed so far. When you’re on the grind, your perspective changes, and every goal seems like the final frontier, but we can see from today’s news that it clearly isn’t – because DL Down3r has topped the charts on PlayMPE with his classic hit, Suga Boom Boom.


This is a huge occasion, and if you think that he can’t go much further, well… he’s proven you wrong today already. Wanna place a bet again?

Pictured above are the top 20 streams and downloads for the original slapper that’s generated 1 BILLION streams across all networks. From cocky bangers talking smack like “No L’s” to introspective sad pieces like “Long Road Ahead”, Down3r has proven many times over that he’s the king, and that whatever he attempts, he does with the utmost care and love that will bring each of his hits to success, no matter what form they take! And Suga Boom Boom is definitely no exception. To see it up there with the likes of superstars like Justin Bieber feels right – Down3r deserves recognition of that stature, and it’s refreshing to see things unfold like this.

With that level of versatility and talent, Suga Boom Boom is absolutely prime territory for not only chart topping, but remixes. And indeed, it’s had quite a few in the past! But what if I told you that one of those very remixes, in fact, one that only came out quite recently… had also topped the PlayMPE charts?


It’s no wonder that DL Down3r’s work is so suited to new interpretations like this one, whether they be from his own hand, or from the community his music has fostered. He’s that damn adaptable! But to say the least, one particular remix stands out. Check out these numbers!

Of course, recent readers will recognise Jack Parry’s stellar remix from our latest headlines. And what a whopper of a remix it is! It’s good to see that PlayMPE seems to agree with that, eh?

This new remix features the intoxicating vocals of DL Down3r’s original that will help you chill and vibe in a whole new way. Combining the many remixes and covers of Suga Boom Boom with the original, the iconic track has reached 35 million streams on just Spotify alone, and has a colossal cult following! So to see a new remix for it now is just the perfect cherry on top.


The remix was overseen by Jack Parry, mixed/mastered by Tom Polce and Chris Garcia, pre-produced by Gabe Rizza, and produced by Damien Reilly. Jack’s unique vision has really helped bring the track to life in a wholly different way, and we’re absolutely here for it. The team has worked hard on adding another feather to Down3r’s cap, and you can see that effort shining clearly through the mesmerising hooks and beats of the timeless banger. The original has been creeping up the charts for years, and various versions have seen great success on other platforms that even rival 35 million, and the versions of this classic track are numerous! So numerous that there’s a billion strong. We’ve had acapellas, remixes in numerous genres and styles, retellings, and all sorts of different spins on the classic formula, including by DL Down3r himself trying new styles out! The summery vibes of this particular version put the listener in the mood for a chill and electric party by the poolside, the synths rippling like the water, the soothing sounds of electric pianos and a peppy brass section bringing the remix home in one hell of a way. And that’s exactly why it stands out… and why it’s topped the charts along with the original.

Jack Parry’s vision in particular was strong with this new direction, causing the old reliable earworm to inherit a new life along with the remix’s cheerful aesthetic. The original Suga Boom Boom is a melancholy head-nodder, letting you into DL’s vulnerable side with a metaphorical discussion of his experience with illegal drugs. Artists have previously brought out the happy side of melancholy before with the track, especially of note are the Key Crashers and their EDM dance mix of course.


But this particular track adds another element that isn’t typically seen in remixes and covers of this track that tend to take it in a new direction: it remains relaxing. This identity of the track synergised well with the original, for while it was melancholy, it also had a bit of zing to it. Usually covers and remixes of Suga Boom Boom take these elements and separate them – not necessarily a bad thing, especially when you hear how good the energetic Key Crashers’ EDM take of the song is, or how cruisey the more methodical and chilled recent trap remix by DL Down3r himself is. But it’s impressive to see a remix that is both chill and relaxing, and retains the spicy energy of the original, while keeping it distinct and different from the original – and that is exactly what the Jack Parry remix accomplishes today. We’re expecting even more big things from it due to the bold direction it takes! When you hear some of the other work Jack Parry has done in the past, it really drives anticipation through the roof as to what might come next for him and DL…


Through fierce and funky west coast rap, Down3r shares his prolific work with the rest of the world, and the stage with west coast rap legends such as Coolio, Brown Boy, Jay Tablet, Lil Young, Snoopyblue, Baby Bash, Steel City Hustlers, King Z and DJ Kane to name a few. From powerful messages, lyrical poetry and sharp comments on society, to G-funk and Trap/EDM hype songs, he proves that age and experience is the opposite of a liability in today’s rap game. Suga Boom Boom is the flagship song of his talented repertoire! This remix and the original are both out now on all major online retailers and streaming services, so get ready to buy a new pair of speakers!

She’s A Mod, She’s Hot, and She’s Got The Lot! A new vid from Dino Jag and Ray Columbus!

The triple threat of Dino Jag, Ray Columbus and the Invaders, as well as Damien Reilly, have launched a new video for a classic hit! We would of course all remember the classic groovy hits from Dino and the gang in their previous outings. The various versions of She’s A Mod are all funky and dance worthy to say the very least! Released on Spotify in 2018, this EP fast became legendary.


Now, in a new and fantastic development, the last track on the EP is finally given a sexy music video!


Steamy, to say the least. And the blues-like guitar number mixed with the modern stings and filters, along with the harmonious backing vocals, all really make this track stand out… not just among the three on the EP, but among songs in general! “Feels so hot” is right! This takes us all the way back to the Mods and Rockers movement… it’s as if that movement took place in the 2010s! This aesthetic is unbeatable, even though it’s hypothetical. She knows she’s good, she feels so hot! And if you can’t get enough of her, we have what you need right here!

Dino has produced a series of remix projects with Blue Pie’s Damien Reilly, including these sweet collabs on Ray’s work. Together these two greats have remixed one of New Zealands biggest selling physical singles of all time “Shes a Mod”, Rusty Andersons “Hurt Myself“, featuring Sir Paul McCartney on bass, backing vocals and guitars and Australia’s singing legend “Mr Barry Crocker” and his song “Shine a light”.

As Damien Reilly says: “Dino is one of the best artists that I have ever worked with. He is quick of the mark with his ideas are always overflowing with infectious melody”. You can surely see that this holds 100% true with this! Everything from the visuals of the video to the addictive flow of the track is reflective of that very statement.

Dino is gaining more and more worldwide recognition, and with names like this to his recording credits, already the world is at his feet. Download Dino Jag’s work now from your favourite platforms such as iTunes, or stream these great songs from Spotify!

Yep, as you can see, in that last link, we reposted the vid on our Tik Tok. And we might just do that some more! Okay, here’s what we’ve been building up to.

The Key Crashers, when we last covered them, were enjoying the fans’ reception of their Suga Boom Boom remixes, as well as the meme we made! Their Suga Boom Boom remixes have garnered tens of thousands of plays since the recent release across multiple platforms, as well as direct fan tributes in the form of #StayHome video clips, even in this dire pandemic, KC have something to smile about. Well, we want to add to that, and we have a feeling YOU GUYS are the best way to do that! Yep, we want you to send us videos on our Instagram and our Tik Tok with the hashtags #SugaBoomBoomKC and #TikTikTikBoomBoom… why those? Because we wanna set off a bomb of dancing and style with these songs!

Check these out! These are just some examples of the kind of vids you could be sending us!

There are a few good things that come out of these bleak times, but some of them include the ingenuity and supportiveness of communities such as these. We can see that clearly in creative tributes such as the dance videos, or in the videos encouraging each other to stay home. A simple, yet difficult, solution to the perils we now face – the difficulty lessened, in part, by the support we give each other, whether it be the #StayHome message, or the message of simple fun and hype music! That’s why we want you to submit everything you can! This is a small list that we have so far, and there’s a couple vids floating around that aren’t here, just to spare the article from being a wall of links and embeds. But we want to eventually show all of them that we can find in an article just like this one! So we’re lighting the bomb on Instagram and Tik Tok, and you’ll be able to hear it Tik Tik Tiking on its way down to a big payoff! But why stop with Key Crashers? Why not do the same thing for the original by Down3r? Or some stuff by Josh Young? Or even Tekno? Send us your vids! Down3r and the Key Crashers may have started the #TikTikTikBoomBoom movement, but there’s no reason it can’t be continued with any of our other artists! Get creating, send it to our Instagram or Tik Tok, and get yourself out there! There may even be some form of compensation beyond exposure if we like your stuff enough 😉

Facebook Loves Our Partner, Blue Pie Records USA!

We have a big juicy update for music lovers across the world! Since the last quarter of 2019, much has happened! Our partner company Ordior reported that during the last quarter of the year, our top artists generated 730 million streams… That’s during the last quarter of 2019 – all things considered, that’s a long time since the last update. Well now, our partner company and main branch Blue Pie is poised to be knocking that out of the park even further! In just one month, April 2020 saw us generate over 165 million streams across our top 15 artists! Our top artists include, but are not limited to, BlackFaceNaija aka BlackFace and his monster hit song African Queen, Sarkodie, Tekno aka Tekno Miles, DL Down3r, African China, Eedris Abdulkareem, the Key Crashers, and Obesere to name a few. Though with that being said, the main plays were on Sare, TEKNO, African China, BlackFaceNaija, DL Down3r, Zya Mou, Sam Pollard and Runtown, as they accounted for 95% of the plays alone!





When you factor in that our last milestone was over a much longer time period, this new stat report is looking to be promising too! People all across the world are discovering these artists, and it’s little wonder that we’re dealing with a collective few million plays with the talent on display here. With Tekno featuring on Beyoncé’s Lion King tie-in album, and Down3r making waves in the circles of those who need hope, as well as many other shining examples, these artists are ones that make a difference, and it’s wonderful to see them being rewarded accordingly. That’s a mantra we live by, and so we love to spread it again and again – we want to work with these artists because we feel their works are important as contributions to music as a whole!





Until the next milestone, this article and these Spotify players will act as a gallery – a reminder of the musical visonaries that work through us and our partner companies, including Blue Pie and Ordior. And while this is hardly the end of our journey with these artistic minds, (nor would we want it to be,) we take a moment now to reflect on our mutual efforts and be thankful for this collusion between our groups and talents.

Amazing work team! We’d also like to sincerely thank Sprout Social for letting us get news and our messages of love for our artists out into the world with such ease.

Until next time, keep those playlists flamin’!

randowis cat meme face

Nice meme! The Key Crashers and internet animator Randowis in one package!

Who’s up for a cheeky little bit of fun? We certainly were, when we made this! See, we took the Key Crashers’ remix of Suga Boom Boom…


And this amazing animation “Monday Blues” from Youtuber Randowis…And combined them!

@bluepierecords

##suggaboomboom#suggaboomboom#suggaboomboom the Key Crashers remix! Original animation by RandoWis on Youtube!

♬ original sound – PlanetBluePictures

Yeah, like we hinted at last time in our latest DJ Central TV news blast article, we made a Tik Tok, and that’s our very first video. You proud of us? Well, we made a longer version of this meme for other websites… here’s the player, and a few links!


GOOD TIMES WITHIN:

Yeah, okay, we had some fun at work, what of it. Yeah. We spread it everywhere. Yeah. We got excited. So WHAT! It was for the good cause of some banging tracks that we really can’t get enough of, and the bobby bouncy stretchy style of Randowis that we can’t stop watching! His talent and that of the Key Crashers have given us cause to create a tribute to the music we love… and of course we can’t leave DL Down3r, original creator of Suga Boom Boom, out of the accolades!


Yeah right, as if we would. Well, now that everything’s accounted for, that just leaves you! Did you like our meme? Would you enjoy seeing tik toks and other memes like it in the future? Has this inspired you to check out Randowis, the Key Crashers, or DL Down3r? If so, why not share it around? Click on the links or the embedded players and there’ll be a button, begging for your attention. :^) Much like the other dancers around the cat girl in the animation. Is it safer to ignore them, or will that just make it worse by making them angry…? Only the cursed squad knows. That, and the mischievous damned cat at the end.

But this is far from all – be sure to check out this article for a refresher on just how many different ways KC and Down3r’s fans are contributing towards the Suga Boom Boom remixes!
