[PREMIERE] Shoffy – “Motions”

Do you ever feel like you are “drowning in the ocean”? TBE Favorite, Shoffy does and we do too. With his Premiere Music Video for “Motions”, Shoffy brings us into the life of a lonely guy just trying to make it through the day. This track is one of many heartfelt tunes off his self-titled EP ‘Shoffy’ out now. Set in suburbia, Shoffy shines light on the monotony of the every day. Scenes revolving around clumsiness, frustration, and being overwhelmed by your day job can sum up this anti- fairytale of a music video. Keeping it real and keeping it relevant are two things that Shoffy does in his sleep. Before you hit the pillow, take a few minutes to watch this more than relatable premiere video of “Motions”.

If you want to hear more of “Motions”, you can also find Shoffy on VINYL MOON Volume 026: Nightshining.

PREMIERE – Shoffy – “Fake Friends (feat. Sidizen King)”

We’re launched right into “Fake Friends” with an opening salvo from Sidizen King, whose blistering verse keeps up with the breakneck drum fill that accents the rest of the track. But when Shoffy grabs the mic, he’s no slouch – spitting lines like “I’ve got no more friends from L.A. / They just hang around to get paid”. What really works with “Fake Friends” is we can hear the hurt that these toxic relations have caused. There’s a tenderness, found in both the childlike chimes of the beat and also lyrics like “Rollin’ with my old crew, leave if I don’t know you”. Unfortunately for Shoffy, if he keeps releasing great songs like this, it might only encourage the fakes to keep coming out of the woodwork. But at least he’ll have a go-to anthem to shut them down.

TÂCHES – “Eat Your Friends” (Ft. Shoffy)

Now here is a jam that will make even the brokest among us feel like that public buss is the most swagged out whip this side of the express line that used to get us home a lot faster. Hell, listen to “Eat Your Friends” too many times on repeat and you may find yourself sitting in the disabled reserved seats which you never do (because its wrong). TACHES and Shoffy are like two little devils breakdancing on my shoulder as I contemplate a list of irrational decisions going into this Friday evening…  Read more

[PREMIERE] LANY – “4EVER!” (Shoffy Remix)

As you prepare for a night out, you can’t shake the feeling from the dream. You know the images are fading fast so you try and savor every flash that echoes in your mind.
