British producer Narscus Prye has put out“Stop This Now”, the first of many single releases from his upcoming album “To An Unknown Place”. The song features a bubbly, arcade like instrumental, supported by strong pop vocals by Yvette Riby-Williams. Utilizing a unique chord progression and non-traditional rhythms, Prye is strikes a satisfying balance between a conventional pop sound and an unconventional indie sound. According to Prye, “Stop This Now” was born after he discovered Yvette Riby-Williams:
“Stop This Now came together after I heard Yvette sing on another project of hers. I checked out some of her videos of when she was in The Boxettes and loved her voice and her vibe. I got in touch, we met up and after I sent her through the track she did her thing on it.” – Narcsus Prye
Narcsus Prye’s musical journey began at a very young age when he played and trombone while growing up in Hong Kong. After moving to London as an adult, he worked as a producer and songwriter for notable acts like Alex Clare, Jodie Abacus, and Bonzai. Recently, he signed with The State51 Conspiracy label, where he will be releasing his debut album “To An Unknown Place” later this year.
Who would’ve ever thought that frenemies could ever be the next collab? Well, Rachel Dady and Jesse O’Connor sure did. Back in Northern Virginia, the two met each other in High School and didn’t have the best memories with bonding. Today they now live in New York City creating music together. Always crushing it with every release, Dady rolls in with their new single “Rollerblades”.
Sometimes everything you want is directly in front of you, so why run in a different direction? Directly heard from the artist; singer-songwriter Rachel (Dady) explains:
“Rollerblades is a metaphor for that somewhat childish tendency to run away from a good thing. It’s about the realization that the special someone you’ve been searching for has been right in front of you the entire time.” – Rachel Dady
With their alternative spin on pop, Jesse and Rachel definitely came in strong with their fluttery synths and catchy lyrical melodies to tell the story of the song. “You leave me notes of love, I leave you in the dark – You gave your soul to take, I had my rollerblades”. The clever songwriters tell their story of running away from love in ways so unique that it leaves chills down your spine. Songwriter/producer Jesse tops it all and sells the song with unique futuristic sounds & outstanding commercial-ready production.
Release after release, became a hit after hit for Rachel and Jesse. The path of success is engraved in Dady’s career with every step these two talents take. So here you have it, your Rollerblades. Will you be rolling in, or rolling out from the next top Duo? Follow Dady and stay updated with their talent.

According to YLY, the inspiration for “Never Saw It Coming” came on a long haul flight from the United States to The United Kingdom. Terrified, he started playing calming chords on his computer to relieve his anxiety. These chords were the beginning of “Never Saw It Coming.”
Once he arrived in the UK, he wrote and recorded the vocals with ARION HAZE, and finished the rest of the production.
“I wanted to create a song that would not only be able to get people emotionally attached but also introduce my new style.” – YLY
