Chicago's Own Aisha Adair

Aisha Adair is not your typical R&B singer. Her impressive vocal ability, outstanding songwriting skills and overall star quality separate her from the run-of-the mill singers that currently saturate the airwaves. Her melodic, yet extremely edgy and poignant voice is reminiscent of the authentic soulful sound of yesteryear that seems to have been replaced by synthetic studio techniques. Her sultry tone is unique, but is still within the realms of the traditional formula that has always made R&B so popular amongst music fans. 

Aisha met and befriended the Jive-recording artist, Syleena Johnson.  Johnson quickly appointed her fellow alum to sing backup for her promotional tour. After lending her vocal expertise to Johnson's team for nearly four years on countless dates, including R. Kelly's TP2.com tour, Showtime at the Apollo and the legendary Soul Train, Aisha decided that it was time to venture out and do her own thing.
  Chicago's
Most recently Aisha's voice can be heard on WGCI's Block Party, one of most popular urban radio stations. She also performed alongside Geffen recording artist Avant on Power 92's morning show. She also returned to her gospel roots for a family project. Aisha is the featured vocalist on the single Hands Toward the Sky which is currently being played on WYCA 102.3 Chicago. 

Aisha's exceptional talent has created a tremendous buzz with the industry insiders in both her hometown Chicago, as well as the Big Apple.  Aisha Adair is well on her way to becoming one of the most gifted artists in the business today.

YOUNG TECH IS ....ACTING OUT


Somewhere on the south side of Chicago, a star was just waiting for his time to shine in the entertainment business. On August 12, 1991, Daniel Christian Morris was brought into the world by Cherita White. As a child, it was evident that Daniel was destined for the arts. He loved being the center of attention from the cradle to school performances to acting and music classes. Daniel was always involved in activities centered on the arts.
Daniel started rapping in the 6th grade with influences from local artist and friends. Some of the artists that influenced his love for music include: Jay Z, Jadakiss, Fabulous, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Drake and other up and coming local artist in Chicago. Daniel embraced the name, Young Tech, after he joining his first group called “The Blackout Boyz”. Everyone in the group had Y.T. in their name. The members included Young Tip, Young Thrillz, Young Twilight, and of course, Young Tech. As a young group, they recorded many songs together but, some of the member’s passion for music wasn’t as strong as others.
Tech’s love of music, on the other hand, was as evident as his heartbeat – he did not live a day without it. As a result, he devoted all of his free time making music and worked towards coming into his evolution into a “true” artist. He took piano and guitar lessons and spent countless hours in the studio trying to find his voice – his sound and his style. In 2005, Young Tech flew out to LA after receiving a letter from Chicago TV One to host the red carpet event for the movie “Waist Deep” featuring Tyrese Gibson, Megan Good, and The Game. This opportunity initial exposure to “Hollywood” only confirmed to Young Tech that this was place for him and provided this young star in the making with an exceptional opportunity to begin networking and meet many celebrities face to face such as T.I., Nia Long, Anthony Anderson, Gorilla Black, Kayla Pratt, and many more. While in LA, Tech was afforded a fabulous opportunity to record one of his first songs in the Westside Connections Studio called, “What It Iz”.
In 2008, Young Tech went on to release his first mixtape entitled, “Welcome to Confliction”, a project that proved to be a good start for this up and coming young artist. That same year, Young Tech went on to become a finalist in the Dance Down 2008 to open up in Chicago for Soulja Boy, Lloyd, and Omarion. Over the past few years, Young Tech has had the privilege of opening for major artist such as: Willie from “Day 26”; The Hot Stylez who had a smash hit “Looking Boy” ft. Yung Joc; Def Jam Recording Artist, Jeremiah, with the single “Birthday Sex” and many others. Tech has also hosted various local fashion shows, T.V. shows, and local Juke Jams at Rich City Skate on the first Saturdays of the month. Winning various talent shows and performing in schools throughout the Chicagoland area has created a buzz for the new artist. He has even had the honor of a couple of his songs receiving airtime on a couple of local college radio stations (University of Illinois Chicago and Depaul University) as well as the hot and popular mainstream Chicagoland radio station, Power 92. In his spare time, Tech has also performed for charities such as the Big Brother Big Sister Club in Los Angeles, the Toys 4’ Tots foundation in Illinois, and other organizations to raise money for the youth.
Now that Young Tech is in the position to travel the world, people can only wonder what’s to come for this young artist. The future of hip-hop is in the hand of a 17 year old Chicago kid with the help of producers Mush Millions, Dj Dame, and Jstyles. Many people know that when Young Tech’s time comes, the music will speak for him. ”

GO GETTA...... IS BLACKTOP SOUNDS ***ARTIST OF THE MONTH***

***ARTIST OF THE MONTH***

 GO GETTA

Aja aka “Go Getta” is from the North side of Chicago. She got the name Go Getta  4 years ago from a friend who told her that her she was the ultimate go getta…it stuck.

Go Getta describes herself as a versatile artist. A writer, performer and entertainer with sex appeal that also “spits” lyrics. Claiming to be dominant and aggressive on stage, she also says that she demands the audience’s attention and gets her point across.

Her biggest challenge has been getting djs and the general public to understand who she is as an artist and to accept her music. “Chicago is a tough city to get to back you up as an artist. You have to prove yourself as a well rounded artist and grinder. You have to show them that you can get out here, rock these shows, push your music and then that’s when they begin to rock with you. If you are not hustling and grinding you can forget about the support,” she says.

Her biggest influence has been my family and true friends. She also has fans out here who genuinely love her as a person and an artist and for them she keeps pushing and making music. She loves performing and being on stage, saying it’s the ultimate rush for her.

Her favorite artists of all time is Jay-Z, Biggie, Lil Kim and Nas. Having a mother that was born and raised in New York, she has always loved the east coast flow.

She first became interested in music at the age of 7 or 8 and became a solo artist at 15. She’s opened up for many signed artists and has performed at many local showcases.

 She loves music where you can tell that the person is expressing real life experiences. She makes feel good music and she talks about things that she’s really been through.

Go Getta has a street team called So Official Go Gettas which is run by Chynaman. Her team is from the south side of Chicago but they operate all over.

Her biggest performance will take place Friday December 23rd at her mixtape release party being held at the loft located at 660 W Lake Street.

Go Getta is currently a national account sales manager for a technology firm. She describes her music as energetic, real life and passionate.

She is the first lady and president of So Official Entertainment. She currently has three artists on her label – Flava Godson, Lyric and Ajanee.

She’d like to thank all of her family, true friends and fans. “Without you I am nothing.” She would also like to send a special thanks to Chris Lux who is her friend and executive producer on “The Gift” mixtape. Also a special shout out at her best friend Jamye aka Jade Green, her sister Tracie and all of the artists who blessed her mixtape.
