We are excited to announce our Music Collection. Music is one of the most personal forms of self-expression, and here at ISlide you already know we're all about Standing In What You Stand For. The Collection features a diverse array of artists over different genres and styles who are expressing themselves and representing their art via our custom slides. Some chose designs that speak to their background, beliefs, or something meaningful they haven't been able to express through their traditional music platform. Others have chosen designs to represent past or upcoming projects.
Up and coming artists have the opportunity to have their custom-designed slides merchandised and sold on our website alongside designs by artists such as Dave East, KISS, and Trevor Jackson, and the collection will continue to grow. Each artist has their own page (found under the Lifestyle section) with their slides and a description of who they are, where they come from, and what they stand for. Most importantly, all sales from the Music Collection will support Project Bread; Project Bread is working to support the Boston community throughout the COVID-19 crisis and they need our help. Programs such as COVID-19 Rapid Response Emergency Grants support school districts and organizations providing free meals for children; in addition, they provide information regarding Hunger and Food Resources for families. ISlide is honored to partner with Project Bread to support the community throughout this public health crisis.
Now let's check out some dope slides.
Dave East, @daveeast
A strong lyricist adept at telling gritty street narratives, Harlem-based MC Dave East has a style heavily reminiscent of '90s New York hardcore rap, while sounding fresh enough to compete with the contemporary hip-hop landscape. After building a buzz with several independent mixtapes during the early 2010s, East caught the attention of his favorite rapper, Nas, and was signed to his label, Mass Appeal. In 2016, he was featured as part of XXL magazine's Freshman Class. Since then, Dave East's growth has been unstoppable. With multiple nods in top Billboard R&B/hip-hop charts as well as all-genre charts for his singles as well as albums, he is committed to providing his fans an authentic sound. His latest work, Survival is available to stream and download everywhere.
Trevor Jackson, @trevorjackson5
Named as one of Ebony’s “25 Young Guns of Black Hollywood”, Trevor Jackson’s fearless artistry is exploding in 2020. You may know him from his work in the American sitcom, "Grownish" or his act as the lead role in the 2018 film, SuperFly. A true triple threat, Jackson breaks out of all your boxes. His creative vision and sonic momentum set him apart as a singer/songwriter, producer, and actor. Trevor’s family-owned production company Born Art focuses on inspiring creatives to embrace their individuality by embracing their imperfections and differences through art. He is excited about rolling out this collaboration with ISlide and bringing his own creative styles to the brand for his fans”.

C Wells, @livefamouswells,
Twisted Sister, @twistedsisterofficial
Originally hailing from Ho-Ho-Kus, New Jersey and Ranked as one of VH1's top 100 greatest artists of hard rock, Twisted Sisters have paved a way for individuality in the music industry since the 70s. Well-known for their 'Glam Metal' style, some of their top hits include favorites such as "We're Not Gonna Take It" from the movie Gung Ho and "I Wanna Rock", both of which had music videos noted for their sense of slapstick humor.
20-year-old graphic designer, Zanic was born and resides in Chicago, IL. Getting his start in creating artwork for Hip-Hop artists when he was 15, Zanic has already worked with some of the biggest names in the industry such as NBA Youngboy, A Boogie, Polo G, and Kevin Gates. For his work with NBA Youngboy's "4 What Important" album, he's received a Gold Plaque. Currently, he's working on some major projects but as with his line of work in the music industry - it'll have to stay under wraps until further notice!
With that being said, we hope this gave you some new slides to rock and some new music to vibe to. Be sure to follow the artists on Instagram to be the first to know when they drop a new design. Stay safe, stay healthy, and take care of each other.
