Black Coast

Meet Black Coast. Raised in The Bronx, the burgeoning producer -- born Stan Rapoport -- has deep roots in New York’s music scene. Apart from various dates with rock, hardcore and pop bands, Rapoport has swiftly made a name for himself as a go-to producer.

But it wasn’t until the release of his single “Trndsttr,” featuring New York based poet and songwriter M. Maggie, that he really hit his stride. The self-released track – without any marketing budget – has netted over 5 million spins on Spotify, and received a Lucian remix that has hit 100 million plays across all platforms.

Today, Black Coast returns with his latest release via Ultra Music called “Feel Something,” premiering exclusively on Billboard.

Featuring serene vocals from Nashville based rising singer-songwriter Remmi, the tune was written before the 2016 Presidential election, but -- for the duo -- it serves as the perfect rallying cry of hope as we head into the new year. The above lyric video was directed by Rozalina Burkova and produced by The Wild Honey Pie.

“Remmi and I were working on Feel Something mid 2016 before the shit hit the fan,” Black Coast tells Billboard. “She had a concept about how hard it may be to move on to something new, having positivity and hope for better. We didn’t know it yet, but we wrote a song with a message that some of us really need in 2017.”
