We are excited to announce our Music Collection. Music is one of the most personal forms of self-expression, and here at ISlide you already know we're all about Standing In What You Stand For. The Collection features a diverse array of artists over different genres and styles who are expressing themselves and representing their art via our custom slides. Some chose designs that speak to their background, beliefs, or something meaningful they haven't been able to express through their traditional music platform. Others have chosen designs to represent past or upcoming projects

Up and coming artists have the opportunity to have their custom-designed slides merchandised and sold on our website alongside designs by artists such as Dave East, KISS, and Trevor Jackson, and the collection will continue to grow. Each artist has their own page (found under the Lifestyle section) with their slides and a description of who they are, where they come from, and what they stand for. Most importantly, all sales from the Music Collection will support Project Bread; Project Bread is working to support the Boston community throughout the COVID-19 crisis and they need our help. Programs such as COVID-19 Rapid Response Emergency Grants support school districts and organizations providing free meals for children; in addition, they provide information regarding Hunger and Food Resources for families. ISlide is honored to partner with Project Bread to support the community throughout this public health crisis

Now let's check out some dope slides.

 

Dave East, @daveeast 

 

A strong lyricist adept at telling gritty street narratives, Harlem-based MC Dave East has a style heavily reminiscent of '90s New York hardcore rap, while sounding fresh enough to compete with the contemporary hip-hop landscape. After building a buzz with several independent mixtapes during the early 2010s, East caught the attention of his favorite rapper, Nas, and was signed to his label, Mass Appeal. In 2016, he was featured as part of XXL magazine's Freshman Class. Since then, Dave East's growth has been unstoppable. With multiple nods in top Billboard R&B/hip-hop charts as well as all-genre charts for his singles as well as albums, he is committed to providing his fans an authentic sound. His latest work, Survival is available to stream and download everywhere.   

  

 

Trevor Jackson, @trevorjackson5

Named as one of Ebony’s “25 Young Guns of Black Hollywood”, Trevor Jackson’s fearless artistry is exploding in 2020. You may know him from his work in the American sitcom, "Grownish"or his act as the lead role in the 2018 film, SuperFly. A true triple threat, Jackson breaks out of all your boxes. His creative vision and sonic momentum set him apart as a singer/songwriter, producer, and actor. Trevor’s family-owned production company Born Art focuses on inspiring creatives to embrace their individuality by embracing their imperfections and differences through art. He is excited about rolling out this collaboration with ISlide and bringing his own creative styles to the brand for his fans”.

Mic L, @microphone_l

Adam 'Mic L' Lawn, is an artist, songwriter, producer, and mix engineer from Lynn, MA. His journey into music started after a childhood break-up with his girlfriend. From there, his coping mechanism turned into a passion and he quickly realized his innate talent. 90% of his music is recorded, mixed, and mastered in his home studio that's he's built over the years. Spending his day as a successful electrician and his nights using that expertise to create... what was once a closet has now because a room of it's own with working parts similar to that of record label studios. Some of his past work includes producing credits on records for Wst Taylor,  C. Wells, Kaleo Jacobs, and Trés as well as a lead role in the award-winning short feature film “The Process”. Which he also created the soundtrack for. Right now Mic L is working on his own custom studio down to the studs. His goal is to eventually have full control over the creative process to create a custom music lifestyle. He envisions himself capitalizing on his studio to have the best creative experience possible. 

C Wells, @livefamouswells

Christopher Williams most known by his street turned stage name “ C Wells” (born August 8, 1993) is an Independent Entrepreneur, Hip-Hop artist based out of Lynn, Massachusetts. Some would describe his style as a blending of genres, which contain versatile flows mixed with witty wordplay. While still being able to catch your attention through maintaining catchy hooks alongside melodies that’ll be stuck in your head for months. His most popular work to date is his previous mixtape Before The Tour Bus hosted by Don Cannon. Before The Tour Bus was the tape that caught the attention of the Massachusetts scene having names like Dave East & G Herbo featured on the track-list while also getting the attention of respected sites such as Mass Appeal, 2DopeBoyz, Vanyaland, Respect-Mag & Nah Right. Wells latest singles “New Whip” & “Crew” were released in 2018, which turned out to be the introduction to his self-titled project C Wells. With the amount of work that has been put in the last few months closing up 2019 the right way like opening both Boston and New York shows of Jay Critch’s Hood Favorite Tour along with being mentioned in an article for the Grammys as a representative of Lynn. Everything will only lead up to the perfect light at the end of the tunnel making the vision that much more clearer. 

Luke Bar$, @lukebar$

Equipped with unique and calibrated intonation, Luke Bar$ has mastered a keen balance that is equal parts menace and maniac. As a documented introvert, Bar$'s catalog is one rooted in clear observational skills and a clever translation of such skills into vividly memorable lyricism and an infectious persona. This much is displayed on the emcee's debut GOODEVEIL project, praised by the likes of 2DopeBoyz, DJ Booth, and HotNewHipHop.  

Twisted Sister, @twistedsisterofficial
