Nyck Caution debuts his first album with Epidemic Sound, “Yellow Tape Road” 

Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, rapper Nyck Caution made a name for himself as a member of the Pro Era collective - the American hip-hop collective group from Brooklyn. Nyck Caution became a fixture of the NYC rap scene in the 2010s, appearing on projects by Joey Bada$ as well as Beast Coast's Escape From New York, and A$AP Mob's Cozy Tapes Vol. 2.   

He now debuts his first album with Epidemic Sound, called “Yellow Tape Road." The project portrays Nyck's signature crystal-clear bars, evocative lyrics, and a spin on the classic NY rap sounds with his incisive storytelling. 

The first song of the album, “On Mine," was released on May 17, and is followed by the release of “Emotional Trauma” on May 31 and “Good Company” featuring Katori Walker on June 14. The entire album will be released on June 21, 2024. 

Commenting on the album “Yellow Tape Road," Nyck Caution said:  “‘Yellow Tape Road’ is basically just me following my own path all these years in the music industry. I produced half of the album and I’m always learning and trying new styles. From introspective songs about my future kids to heavy 808 records about getting out of my face I feel like this project covers everything I love about music.”   

Gavin Luke returns with new EP “Old Boxes”  

Composer and producer Gavin Luke returns with EP “Old Boxes," releasing June 14, 2024. 

From an early age, Gavin was innately drawn to the musical world. At age 7, he began taking classical piano lessons, following the footsteps of both his parents and his grandmother. Throughout his childhood, Gavin both practiced and experimented with classical masterpieces, frequently re-writing the works of renowned composers such as Brahms and Mozart. 

Gavin’s signature sound of naturalism and classical music is rooted in his childhood memories of fishing and hiking in the lakes and woods with his family in Minnesota. It is also inspired by new-age composers, along with his passion for classical music, film scores, and modern contemporary electronica. 

Today, his music resonates with millions of fans, content creators, and brands across the globe. Gavin’s music has racked up over 450 million streams to date across music streaming platforms, and videos including his music on YouTube have generated over 28 billion views. 

Commenting on his continued partnership with Epidemic Sound, Gavin Luke said:  “Working with Epidemic Sound has opened a door for me that I never thought would happen. I am now able to earn a living from my music and I get to wake up each day and do what I love. I also have much more creative freedom now than I had before working with Epidemic Sound, and I’m able to develop and grow both as an artist and as a composer/producer.”
