Vic August- Approach

Dropping this week Tommy Boy Australian Hip Hop artist Vic August drops “Approach” from his forthcoming EP titled “xx”.


The Melly Starz team was able to snag an exclusive listen to this smooth melodic song prior to the official drop. Vic August is joined on the track by Socialblight and UNKWN. The track is so melodic that it can blur the lines between Hip Hop and R&B which is right on trend with the times. The track is on the longer side at over 5 minutes but some of the best songs break the mold, which is the case here. The song is about a girl and his relationship with her. They have a back and forth relationship, she seems to have put a spell on him to keep him stressing her. By the end of the song, it seems our protagonist has given up on his love and would prefer if she keeps off social media with this drama and just back off already. The solo guitar riff at the end sent chills up my spine and was a perfect way to end the song.

Overall, I love the song! the delivery is spot on, lyrics are on point and the beat is unmatched. The collaborations and lyrical references are infused perfectly into the track. With this being Vic August’s first single, I can only imagine what is to come on his forthcoming EP in November. This is a great introductory song for new fans looking for the ever-elusive Hip Hop and R&B fusion. You can stream the song by clicking this link.

Who is Vic August?

Vic August
With a #1 Hip Hop project (“Truths”) already under his belt, Australian teenage sensation Vic August is now poised to make his Tommy Boy debut with, “Approach”, featuring Socialblight and UKNWN. The first single off of his forthcoming EP, “xx”, due out 11/8/19 (Pre-order available 9/13/19) sees Vic August bringing smooth melodic flows over a slick guitar-driven, Trap-infused beat, blurring the lines between Hip Hop & R&B in a way that only he can. With his signature sauce and undeniable swag, it makes perfect sense that he has already picked up co-signs from Ebro on Beats 1 and Spotify – landing on the cover of their ‘Mellow Styles’ playlist in Australia. With “Approach” being the first taste of what is to come from his new 7-track project, the lead single is more than enough to get old and new fans excited about what’s on the way.

Updates: Reviews, Promo and Top 200

Hello my fellow Starz,

It’s update time! As you know, I’m always busy in these streets bringing you the heat. My medically forced break hasn’t been as productive as one would think but I wanted to hit you with what has been happening and is coming in the future.

The past is always present:

Reviews are back! I have a ton pending and am accepting new submissions in the weeks to come. There has been an influx of submissions so bear with me while I get through them.

Promo: I am also doing event promos, no event reviews yet (medical reasons). Stay tuned for when those will come back.

The future is now:

As you know, I am now hosting a radio show alongside DJ and long-time friend DJ LX. The show drops every Friday and there are opportunities for all of you, of course.

First, if you are a DJ, you can reach out to us and have your set featured on the show. We look for open format DJs. Hit us up @elcalordemiami 

Second, I’ve finally been able to implement the track of the week into the show. You submit a track and we choose from the submissions. If you are chosen, your track will be pushed out to our thousands of listeners and you get an on-air interview with yours truly.

Third, I’m working on getting one video out each week starting in late September over on my Youtube. It will be random topics and all about the things I like to do. It will be more of a vlog.

Lastly, with the influx of work and projects coming in, it seems it is time to expand the Mellsville team. I’m looking for one or two writers that enjoy one or all of the following: games, hip hop, fashion, and entertainment. Your experience level does not matter to me, I’d love to mentor and help you build your own brand someday. If you’re good with social media that is a plus simply because I hate the entire concept of it. I’ve been a social media manager for far too long.

Shine bright

Mellsville will continue to grow and is already growing faster than I imagined after years of back and forth. The biggest accomplishment this year has been being featured in the top 200 Feedspot Hip Hop blogs. This is definitely the beginning of the notoriety that Mellsville has been working hard for over 6 years.

If you want to be featured on Melly Starz submit directly to me using the contact us page or if you want to be featured on The Heatmix Life click here. Although, I am part of the show it is separate from Melly Starz so a submission on one does not guarantee a spot on the other and vice verse. See ya after the health gets better. Shine bright Starz.
