Down3r clown 150

A new DL Down3r single and a new merch store! Don’t miss out on CLOWN!

DL Down3r, AKA Mr Suga Boom Boom, continues his style of throwing down hard hitting bars that have something to say. Where an amateur rapper would just load their flow with threats and hate towards imaginary rivals, DL Down3r uses his expert rhythm and smoky voice to hammer a message home. That’s right, there ARE still rappers who put their heart into their lyrics, and DL is a prime example of one.

Clown is a track that combines the anger of a diss track with the emotions of an introspective song. It’s a pissed track, but a sad kind of anger. The kind of disappointment you feel when someone close to you has let you down, or changed for the worse – that’s this song incarnate, and you can feel that in both the melody and the lyrics. This isn’t the first time Down3r has impressed us like this either! Providing hope where there is often despair, DL Down3r opened up every pore of his living being, giving the world a collection of war-songs that tell a story as real as it can be told. From walking down roads that some of us never travel, to providing hope and compassion from a man that has lived a hard life, Down3r delivers it all. And luckily for you, Cotton Cart delivers his merch to your door! Show the man your support if he’s ever touched your heart, and check out his and our other artist’s merch stores on Cottoncart!

But what’s Clown all about anyway? Sharing his experiences of life on the inside of the big house, Down3r outlines the experience of a toxic relationship as he waits to be released. The song isn’t a typical diss track, trying to tear down an opponent, but rather a look back at a pathetic person who used to have a hold on him, going over everything she did wrong by him, and ultimately dismissing her as irrelevant – taking the “high” road in more ways than one. It carries an aloof attitude – it lacks the whiny anger of a typical breakup song, and showcases a combination of maturity and savagery that showcases the hell that Down3r has been put through. People who have seen the worst in life know what’s important, and to Down3r, some petty clown who screwed him over couldn’t be less important to him. He simply dismisses her with one song, then moves on, like crushing an ant. Destroyed. IRRELEVANT!

The syncopation of the trudging beats and DL’s flow puts you in mind of carnival music – quite fitting considering the theme and title of the song. But make no mistake, this is still real hip hop, and it sounds just as good as any of DL’s other classic songs that have brought in the fans time and time again. This is a call we would love to receive from a prepaid prison phone, although we can’t say the same for the nameless target of the song, huh?! In any case, another classic to add to Down3r’s arsenal. Hype, fam, hype. It’s out now on all major online streaming services and retailers, so plug into it wherever you can! Links down below.

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, LadyDice, 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. Blast it loud, get ready to feel something, and rest assured knowing that hip hop never died… you gotta be a real clown to think that it did!

Jack Parry Suga Boom Boom Remix 150

Another Suga Boom Boom remix from Jack Parry and DL Down3r!

Suga Boom Boom, the smash hit that generated 1 BILLION streams across all networks, has yet another excellent cover to add to the repertoire! 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.

This particular 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 if you’ve ever heard any iteration of his killer hit Suga Boom Boom, you’d see that effort shining clearly through the mesmerising hooks and beats of the timeless banger. It’s 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.

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 big things from it due to the bold direction it takes!

And with all this talk of Suga Boom Boom, don’t think for a moment that Down3r hasn’t branched out past his flagship song. 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! So it’s no wonder that his 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.

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 is out now on all major online retailers and streaming services, so get ready to buy a new pair of speakers!

DL Down3r Ft. Lady Dice - Save Me

Down3r and LadyDice save Spotify! SAVE ME releases worldwide!

It’s finally time – the acclaimed single Save Me is now live on Spotify, as well as all other music streaming services and online retailers! It’s a rolling stone on Spotify in particular, with plays from just a few days rivaling the playcount from months of exposure, so that’s definitely the network to keep your eye on… as it often seems these days!

The latest track from the iconic duo of DL Down3r and LadyDice is already off to a good start, with over a thousand plays on Spotify just a few days after it was loaded to the service! Known for their monolithic song “Suga Boom Boom”, the pair return with something quite different. “Save Me” is an introspective and sombre look at the darker side of life, and the hope that can maybe be found deep within. Last time we commented on it, it had just released on most other networks barring Spotify. It had also featured on episode one of 2021’s local radio show/online podcast Blue Pie Radio, making a notable radio debut under MCs Mighty and Pyrite! Now it’s finally here on ALL networks INCLUDING Spotify, and is ready for the world on demand, so play it loud and listen proud wherever you’re at! Let’s see that slick Spotify plug one more time, plus the other dope uploads that have already been up!

With a killer and emotional instrumental backed by a solid trap beat, these lyrics are a plea to save the singer from themselves. LadyDice’s sweet vocals complement Down3r’s smooth and sultry vocals as always, and the lyrics aren’t afraid to cut to the bone. Featuring callbacks to the “chasing dragons” motif of the original Suga Boom Boom, Down3r and LadyDice let you into their lives and show your their pain, show you that they are human. Of course, as far as the duo’s music goes, this is a very familiar motif…

The emotions in “Save Me” in particular are plain to hear, and it’s yet another example of the amazing synergy that LadyDice and DL Down3r have with each other. Down3r’s monologue to the heavens at the end hits you right where it hurts. If you’ve been there, you know. This isn’t the usual G-Funk that Down3r is known for, but his flow is still tight and his style fits perfectly when taken outside of its comfort zone. His is a talent that blends naturally into LadyDice’s style, bringing a bit of a gritty edge to her heartfelt pop aesthetic! But that isn’t to say she’s all sunshine and rainbows, this girl is hardcore too, and her tracks “Beast” and “Freakshow” are sure to remind you of that! This duo can dance to any tune, and “Save Me” is the latest chapter in a shared legacy of excellent bangers that are sure to light up any room in any corner of the world… you just gotta pick the right flavour for the crowd, and this versatile pair have plenty on offer! You oughta know that already though, if you’ve been running with this duo for long enough… where are the true OGs at?

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, LadyDice, 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. And LadyDice is not one to be understated either, and is definitely someone to keep your eye on. Raised on classic rock and growing up as a fan of punk rock and metal, she has found her love for hip-hop as an adult. From this musical background she has developed her unique edge and sound, making her stand out from the crowd. She has touched the hearts of so many with her empowering songs, and her social media fan base is a testament to the growing legion of fans. This little number is just another flex from the duo’s talented repertoire, and their fusions of style and passion really make their music pop! Blast it loud, get ready to feel something, and rest assured knowing that neither hip hop nor pop died… they work together about as well as peanut butter and jelly! We’re super glad that this new single is out on Spotify – straight into our playlists you go!

soularflair

A whole lotta Soularflair to help you through lockdown!

Since the last time we checked out what Soularflair was up to, his interstellar vibes and beats had us reeling from all the content he released in rapid succession. And it appears as though that may even become the norm – who knows? All that we can say is that he’s done it again, the madlad! We have a ton of new releases and videos to show off, plus a few teasers for some stuff still in the works! Soularflair fans have their plates full with this one. And just as well, with how wretched the pandemic is becoming in Soularflair’s home country of Australia. Bunker up, get your snacks, and bust these beats to get you through it!








And as if that wasn’t enough to chew on, most if not all of these excellent pieces have music videos to accompany them, as well as many more Soularflair videos besides! They can be found on Soularflair’s personal channel, as well as Blue Pie’s channel and DJ Central’s channel, of course!



















Yep, there’s a lot to see, and we just unloaded a bunch on you – but it’s only a fraction! Could the missing component to superstring theory be Soularflair’s tracks? Because they all transport us to a chill new dimension to vibe and lose ourselves in! These tracks all are quite different pieces, which shows Soularflair’s ability to embrace many different styles and weave them seamlessly together. It isn’t often that you see someone with this kind of talent, and the more notice he gets for it, the better! So go ahead and binge, because even if lockdown lifts, it’s probably not gonna be a quick process of getting back to normal.

But, at least there’s a couple things to look forward to… two teasers from Soularflair, one for a song, one for an album! Presenting SOLO and TUNES WITH EXIT WOUNDS! Gotta love how many puns Soularflair includes in his titles, eh?


We’ll definitely be keeping our ears to the ground for when these officially drop. And don’t worry – you’ll be the first to know! But knowing Soularflair, they’ll be released all at once along with a few other releases on the side, so brace yourselves for a ton of amazing content consumption!

Soularflair’s work has given us much to smile about, whether it be his music video work on acts like Sam Pollard or Southpaw, his incredible music, or his work under his DJ alias, Attarraxx. He’s a diamond in the rough and we couldn’t be happier to have uncovered him – because it’s in these sorts of times when diamonds can really shine!

Southpaw – Coast To Coast from Planet Blue Pictures USA on Vimeo.

And of course, his Spotify work speaks for itself – his score work with Stuck In The Q in particular has gotten him noticed on that platform, and we’re eager for every single bit of new content he’ll have for us… waiting on it gladly, Soularflair! We’ve got an eye on your profiles. 😀


And recently, his Westworld Theme remix just got noticed too…

It was added to a community playlist on Spotify alongside titans like The Weeknd, Eminem, Toto, and many many others! It’s an honour to see this, and the playlist overall makes for good jamming material! Excellent taste on behalf of the creators!

So with that kind of clout and these kinds of releases, it’s only a matter of time until Soularflair reaches escape velocity and transcends the atmosphere itself! Keep your radars on…

To find out more about Soularflair, send an email to pr@bluepie.com.au and we’ll answer any questions that we can about this rising star… or you could always check out his links!
