Stefan – “Ahead Of You” ft. Kam Carter & “I’m Fly”

By: Seamus Fay

Just in time to end off the week on a high note, Brockton native Stefan is here on Graduation Music today to show us the fruits of his labor in recent months, dropping off two brand new singles entitled “Ahead Of You” and “I’m Fly”. As always seems to be the case, this rising talent shows great improvement with his two newest offerings, shedding a notable light on the way that he has honed in on his skills in order to find a signature sound. The sonic direction that we hear on these two singles seems to be the precursor to an incredibly bright future, and I hold no hesitation in saying that Stefan is something truly special.

With this, it’s also important to note the versatility shown between the two unique works. “Ahead Of You” finds its strength by way of a hypnotic world of airy, bubbling melodies, topped off with a perfectly-placed feature from Kam Carter. On the other side of things, taking to a groove-filled sound, “I’m Fly” seems to thrive when reinforced by the unforgettable baseline and Stefan’s undeniably alluring vocal talents. Both songs are produced by none other than Unicorn Waves, and all things considered, they provide ample reason as to why we need to watch out for Stefan in the future.

The Brockton native shows great promise with his “Ahead Of You” and “I’m Fly”, so click play at the link below and get hip!

Andy Poorhol – ‘Ummm, The Mixtape’

By: Seamus Fay

For those who have been close attention to Graduation Music throughout the past few weeks, you’ve probably stumbled upon the name Andy Poorhol before. The last time we covered this rising talent was with his song “Mud Munkei“, which acted as a quick taste of what was to come in his forthcoming project. That being said, today, the wait for new Andy Poorhol is over, as he hits our pages once again to unleash a brand new, 9-track mixtape, Ummm, The Mixtape including features from Stefan, Kam Carter, and Benjy Ali.

“Mud Munkei” first caught my ear due to the lyrical skill and sky-high potential that Poorhol’s personality seemed to hold on the mic, and thankfully so, the full mixtape follows these positive attributes up perfectly. Listeners are blessed with 9 different reasons why the 508 native is slated to do some special things in the future, as his energetic deliveries and brutally honest charisma are nothing short of infectious. Ummm, The Mixtape is also an incredibly easy and entertaining listen, partially thanks to stellar production credits from Jerm Sherman, Mission, Trevor Powers, Joostan, MRCLFLR, Kendowray, and Benjy Ali.

That being said, check out Ummm, The Mixtape in all of its passionate glory at the link below!
