1. Nice company
Cool Company makes Future R&B music.
Brooklyn’s Cool Company duo – singer Yannick Hughes and producer Matt Fishman – sumptuously blend hip-hop, R&B, electronics, pop and funk. Frequently bringing home energetic bops to Spotify’s Nu-Funk, Choice Edits, or I Love My ’10s Funk playlists, their live show retains the same uplifting soul energy as their productions. Recently touring with Magic City Hippies and sold out in New York City, they continue to bring funk wherever they go.
An improv artist who builds songs from scratch! All of his published songs were composed entirely by himself in one take. Marc Rebillet is an American electronic musician and YouTuber from Dallas, Texas, currently based in New York City. He is known for his improvised electronic songs with humorous lyrics. Self-proclaimed “Loop Daddy” Rebillet primarily distributes his work via YouTube videos and Twitch live streams, in which he uses loops, keyboards, vocals and percussion instruments to produce funky songs in his apartment. Over 3 studio albums and EPs, he has formed an original catalog of upbeat, moving nu-funk records.
CAPYAC FOREVER /// TIME IS AN ILLUSION
I would like to point out that Capyac is two things: 1) the production + songwriting duo formed in 2015 by P. Sugz (tall one) and Potion (shorty). 2) the ever-expanding performing arts, involving up to 12 musicians and often including mimes, dancers, comedy sketches and cooking.
CAPYAC exists in this hybrid state – writing, production, remixing and DJing as a duo (+ collaborators); and live with all their friends.
Their second debut album “CAPYAC FOREVER” was released in 2021. They hope you will like it

“The only time you wear a tuxedo is when it’s time to party.”
That’s what legendary West Coast player Snoop Dogg said on the opening track of Tuxedo II. The Doggfather’s Blessing was of particular significance to Mayer Hawthorne and Jake One, whose second album found them at the forefront of the new wave of gangster boogie – one owed as much to G-funk as to P -funk. This is the territory of pre- and post-hydraulic low riders: a mix of Californian boom-bap, analog synth bass and sleek funk that resonates with truth and authenticity in an era when so many people pretend.
Bonding around a shared love for Chic, Parliament, and the other signs of the greatest Zodiac funk, Mayer Hawthorne (Aquarius) and Jake One (Taurus) were the earliest predictors of the marine changes American music would undergo in 2016. Their first released in March of 2015 debuted at No. 1 on iTunes America’s RnB charts, dubbed “Dance floor catnip” by the Boston Globe and “Pure disco-funk hot fire” by Okayplayer. The second album on Stones Throw Records was premiered with a special performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live and dubbed “Straight-up funk magic” by Noisey. Given their individual successes (Mayer’s four solo albums, Jake’s production work for Drake, Future, The Weeknd, and De La Soul) and eight GRAMMY nominations between them, it’s no surprise that their combined powers have once again given an absolute slapper, perfect for dance parties in 2019 and beyond.
