Introducing Music Mergers: The Perfect Social Platform For Artists



Recording artists, if you’re looking for the perfect platform for propelling your career, exposure to interested consumers or connect with industry professionals without the distractions of social media, look no further than the newest social platform called Music Mergers.

While popular social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and Tik Tok have become the go-to hotspots for discovering new artists; however, among the new music is a hurricane of distractions that draw our attention elsewhere, such as new tech, gossip, clickbait antics and so much more. Now, finally, there is a platform that is simply about one thing, discovering your next favorite artist through exploring music. Music Mergers takes away all of the distractions that plague social media and focus on enthusiast and artist building connection, engagement and influence.

Founded by longtime friends and industry professionals Dontrell “Uncle Loops” Lendsey and Brian “Excel Beats” Whittaker. The platform’s creation is due to the 2020 COVID-19 Pandemic that, single-handedly, shut down the entertainment business. Billions of dollars were lost and many industry workers were left jobless with all live entertainment put of hold for an entire year. It was an event no one was ever prepared for.

So this would never happen again, the two veterans wanted to put a platform together that would allow for the music community to continue to thrive if this were to happen again. The minds of both Uncle Loops and Excel Beats came together to create a much-needed development tool for independent talent across the globe.

Uncle Loops, a well-known California recording artist-by-way-of-Colorado, has developed a highly-regarded resume, including collaborations with chart-topping West Coast acts, with a unique sound, a keen eye for talent and vast knowledge that earns him longevity in this business. Entering the business in 2002, his forward-thinking has helped him craft some of the exciting new sounds within pop culture. With experience, he has developed Music Mergers to be a platform that provides artists the ability to let their talent be their formal introduction and not today’s infatuation with algorithms and social status.

Not only the owner but also a client, Loops continues to pursue his solo career with the release of his latest single, “Changing It Up.” Crediting his musical influences to E-40, Too $hort, Clyde Carson, Andre 300, UGK, and Jay-Z. Uncle Loops is known as a master negotiator with his involvement in deals for musicians and notable recording companies, like Empire and Atlantic Records. He is currently preparing the release of his forthcoming project, titled Boutdo, which will feature late-Bay Area rapper, Mike Darole and slated for a June release via own imprint. Boutdo talks of lessons learned and how to maneuver in a distorted environment.

Excel Beats is best known for his production work with Grammy award-winning legends Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. Like Loops, Excel, along with award-winning production, also has a very extensive background in the entertainment industry. For Music Mergers, Loops and Excel properly designed a platform to bring back the familiar artist development for both music professionals and musical talent that they experience coming up.

In 2021, Music Mergers has been covered by several major music media outlets like All Hip Hop. Music Mergers is both mobile and web-friendly and works as a monthly credit subscription format.

Chelzzz – Poseidon



South Florida artist showcases genre-bending sound on latest hit single ‘Poseidon’ 

MIAMI, FL – Up-and-coming artist Chelzzz is shaping the underground industry while soaring to the top with her recipe of intricate beats, bars for days and a voice that can’t be replicated. This South Florida active, event curator and promoter is not your typical female artist. This lesbian entertainer quite literally bends gender specifics with every release, and her latest single “Poseidon” is no exception.  

Born from the very public divorce she’s currently going through, the song is Chelzzz’s attempt to be more vulnerable and give listeners and fans and inside peek at what’s going on in her life. With an aggressive flow of lyrics, Chelzzz encourages listeners of her music to get busy and have a good time, while also showcasing a super versatile style that has been her trademark since bursting onto the scene five years ago. 

“I sing and rap, I’m high energy, and yet I can be very relatable, as well,” Chelzzz said. “I’m also a female artist who writes lines that are more provocative toward women. I don’t exploit women like a lot of other artists do. Being a feminine is important, but not a single one of my tracks are the same. I have one song about moving to South Florida and what I’ve gone through. I have another one that was written when all the stimulus checks were dropping. And ‘Poseidon’ is about a relationship. Everything is really different, but most of the time my music is more upbeat and more party stuff.” 

Chelzzz has been releasing music as a professional artist since 2016. Serving as the primary visionary behind all her projects, she has quickly become known among industry insiders as an artist who not only delivers great music but also brings high-quality and entertaining videos to the table. Both her writing and visuals create stories that relate to audiences all over the world.  

At the beginning of 2021 Chelzzz released her first album “Somehwere In Miami,” inspired by her journey from her hometown of Detroit to Miami. In the album Chelzzz showcases her unique and captivating town, which is a mixture of a Midwest swag and South Florida vibes. She’s been hard at work since that releasing putting together more singles, which she is now ready to release over the course of the next few months. 

“I like being different and capitalizing off my own strengths,” she said. “I like switching things up and not being stuck in one box or genre. I think that’s super important for artists, and people as a whole, to see. Don’t let yourself be labeled as one thing or let society dictate who you are. My music shares that message, and more than anything that’s the biggest mark I want to make on the world.” 

“Poseidon” is currently available across all streaming platforms. Chelzzz said she plans to follow that with another single called “Monster” sometime in October in anticipation of the Halloween holiday.

MarleyIBe – SKRT



From poetry to trap, MarleyIBe announces his arrival with new project ‘Bone’

Music was always Dominik Kadoniya Kelly’s first love, but it was his poetry that first earned him
a reputation. The 26-year-old, who was born in Germany and now lives in the Washington, D.C.
area, gained a huge following on Twitter with his “Bittersweet Tuesdays” poetry that showed a
vulnerable side and built an intimate connection with his audience. “I posted a poem one day
and everybody liked it so I kept posting them but I always liked music,” says Kelly. “After the
poetry got the ball rolling and I built a fanbase I decided to translate that into what I actually
wanted to do with myself. The result? A music artist best known as MarleyIBe who just released
his newest project: Bone, which features 11 tracks with an old-school mixtape feel like the ones
Kelly grew up listening to with skits and hosting by DJs. Kelly wants each of his projects to have
a different vibe and Bone serves as his step out party. “Just an introduction, a different way for
people to view me,” he says. “The next projects won’t sound anything like this.”Bone has more
of a trap rap feel to it and it likely won’t take fans by surprise as much as Kelly’s first tape, which
caught many off guard who only knew Kelly for his poetry. “The music was very different from
what people were expecting and they were surprised by what they heard,” he says. “With this
tape they know more what to expect.”“A lot of people seem to gravitate towards the song
’Skrt’ and I believe that’s because it has a really catchy hook and there’s a chant-like vibe, a
cadence that I do in the song that gives it a chant-like vibe and I think people are attracted to
that,” he says. “It makes them gravitate towards the song as soon as it turns on.”The project’s
third track, “Baby Muva,” features Rico Nasty, who’s signed to Atlantic Records. Overall it’s a
very upbeat project and Kelly strived to create something cohesive, something that blended
together as one. It’s a fun project not meant to be taken too seriously. Kelly considers himself a
dynamic artist and while most of his releases to date feature his rapping ability he’s not just a
hip-hop artist. All of his projects currently in the works sound completely different and his next
release will give off more of an alternative rock and pop vibe. His first full album, still in the
works, will feature more of his poetry. “I grew up in Germany with my father in the military so I
moved around a lot,” Kelly says. “The type of music I grew up listening to wasn’t the same that
most people were influenced by or had the ability to experience. From just music in different
languages to festival type music, people don’t really go outside their comfort zone as far as
what they listened to here and my parents forced me to listen to different types of music
growing up.”Kelly, in particular, was heavily influenced by Tupac as a person and an artist and
says Lil Wayne has been a great inspiration. And Bob Marley – if Kelly’s stage name doesn’t give
it away – has also been a key influence. The MarleyIBe name originated when everybody said
Kelly looked like the legendary reggae artist. “There’s an old Lil Wayne song and he references
somebody else and he says ‘Marley I Be’ talking to the person outside int he studio,” Kelly says.
“I don’t know why, that just always stuck with me. Somebody else I knew blessed me with the
name and decided that should be with me and I’ve rolled with it ever since.”Kelly’s goal as
MarleyIBe is to make music that everybody can listen to. “Maybe this song isn’t for you but I
want to make a song for everybody,” he says.
