ShiGGa Shay - What's Wrong

Crew leader takes a musical direction

New year, new song and new music direction. ShiGGa Shay releases his first new song in 2016 as a free download on SoundCloud shortly after the release of his self-titled album in 2015. ‘What’s Wrong’ is produced, mixed and mastered by Shorya Music at AOR Studios, and contains a sample from fellow Singaporean artist Charlie Lim’s ‘Rust’.

The song holds a significantly different vibe from what one may be used to hearing from him. The song lyrically takes on a more mysterious direction and musically strikes a deeper emotion.

ShiGGa Shay explains, “My music is constantly evolving everyday as much as I’m growing as a person. The matters and situations I speak about in songs are snapshots of what’s going on in my life as an artist.”

Fizzy Pop drops his debut Music Video ‘Save Money’

Debut of Fakkah Fuzz's comedy rapper alter ego

‘Save Money’ is a song by Singapore Stand Up Comedian Fakkah Fuzz who goes by the rap monikerFizzy Pop and produced by Shorya Sharma. Released on Wednesday 18 November, the song is inspired by the everyday financial troubles of the common Gen Y Singaporean. The concept of the video depicts the different common jobs that we do everyday. These are the different occupations that Fuzz has experienced in his life before he became a full-time Stand Up Comic, except for the saman auntie, of course.

Fakkah Fuzz has been working in the Stand Up Comedy scene for 5 years and is now venturing into different passions – Music primarily being one of them. For Fizzy Pop, this video speaks about the woes of average Singaporeans and how they wait for their salaries when it’s close to the end of the month.

ShiGGa Shay releases 'Never Learn' MV

Last MV from ShiGGa Shay's self-titled album

Crew leader ShiGGa Shay releases the last Music Video ‘Never Learn’ off his self-titled full-length album on Monday 16 November. ‘Never Learn’ is a piss-take at the naysayers who has given him flak for pursuing music full-time in Singapore and his passion for his art.

ShiGGa Shay the album drops on 9 August 2015

ShiGGa Shay releases self-title full-length album

Singapore rapper ShiGGa Shay drops his self-titled full-length on 9 August 2015. This is an accumulation of his music journey for the past 3 years, showcasing uptempo Hip-Hop bangers to soulful beats and ballads. Still perfecting his craft as a wordsmith, ShiGGa Shay’s lyrical themes range from personal tribulations to comic observations in life on this album.
Mastered by long-time music partner/ Singapore music producer extraordinaire Don Richmond, the music is mainly produced by Don, upcoming music producer Shorya Tha Reign and ShiGGa’s fellow Grizzle Grind Crew member, LINEATH.
Besides the 2 singles ‘Lion City Kia (Kid in Hokkien dialect)’ and ‘Wussapa’, the album features collaborations with indie folk singer Gentle Bones, pop group The Sam WillowsBenjamin Kheng and fellow Grizzle Grind Crew members Tosh Rock and Wang Weiliang. In fact, ‘Siala’ features Weiliang’s debut in rapping as well.
The real-life buddies collaborate again on ‘Brothers Forever 兄弟’ which samples from Don’s work on the Ah Boys To Men musical. Lyrically, it spun off from a deep conversation about their childhoods, particularly Weiliang’s harsh growing up period in a single parent family. ‘Ang Moh Pai’ revisits the successful pairing of Tosh Rock and ShiGGa Shay (which gave birth to ShiGGa’s viral hit ‘LIMPEH’) on an energetically playful cut where the duo trade jibes and cheeky adlibs effortlessly. It is not exactly family friendly, we would say.
‘Red & Blue’ is a slow RnB tune, inspired by the ladies. The Sam WillowsBenjamin Kheng takes a dive into his love for R’n’B and soul music, singing a beautiful hook/ chorus.
Every rapper has a song about their mums. ShiGGa Shay is no exception. ‘Mama Don’t Cry’ is an ode to the greatest woman in his life, his mother and a particularly traumatic experience in his childhood. In this tune, he states his wish to give his mother the most comfortable life possible, as any filial son would think of.The physical album will contain bonus tracks and a lyric booklet.

LINEATH - Ground Works

New EP from the GGC beatmaker

On Saturday 27 September 2014, young Singaporean beat maker and producer, LINEATH will be releasing his 5-track solo EP. Ground Works can be bought via www.lineathmusic.com and be found on most music streaming sites. The EP has been lovingly put together with the guidance of his mentor, music producer Don Richmond. All five tracks have been written, produced, mixed and mastered by LINEATH.

The lead single from the EP is ‘Rumble’. It’s a rowdy, up-tempo and rudely driven song. Crossing between English and Tamil, the lyrics touch on personal matters, “re-introducing” LINEATH as a rapper and also showing a glimpse of his full potential as a beat maker.

The other 2 standout tunes ‘Ratchet Girl’ and ‘Australia’ are intertwined as both songs revolve around the same topic. ‘Ratchet Girl’ has that pop, Hip–Hop and EDM vibe running throughout the entire song. That particular style sums up the entire EP. Starting off with a Hip-Hop beat, it morphs to a pop chorus, creaking down to a Trap drop.

‘Australia’, on the other hand, was supposed to be a simple 20 seconds interlude after ‘Ratchet Girl’ which took on a new life, evolving into a new song. The 20-year old producer shares, “One thing I really love about this song is that it’s a really fun song to play live!” ‘Can’t Wait’ features a killer scratch routine from fellow Grizzle Grind Crew mate DJ LeNERD, winner of Live Mix Maestro 2013.

ShiGGa Shay - Lion City Kia (feat. LINEATH & Akeem)

Debut single from ShiGGa Shay's new album

It’s ShiGGa Shay’s tribute to Singapore, exploring what he loves about his home country and celebrating the diversity found in this small island-state. Besides his penchant to spewing Hokkien slangs and phrases, he has gotten his fellow Grizzle Grind Crew member LINEATH to contribute a verse on the track. LINEATH throws down a sick verse in both English and Tamil on the song which he has produced the beat. Celebrated Singapore underground Malay rapper Akeem joins the boys, paying homage to his ‘hood of Woodlands.

The video is primarily shot in Dakota Crescent which is scheduled for demolition end 2015. He hopes to be able to preserve memories of that old ‘hood through his music video.
