American Songs

American Songs is the music publishing venture for legendary producer and executive Rick Rubin, and is an exclusive partnership with PULSE Music Publishing. The company’s initial signings are El-P, Goldlink, Kaytranada, and D.R.A.M.

El-P is a rap icon. The writer, producer and artist remains firmly at the center of cutting-edge music delivering his singular form of muscular, musical boom bap, lyrical mastery, and a one-of-a-kind live show to audiences worldwide. With his current project, the globally celebrated and successful act Run The Jewels, his career continues to reach even greater heights.

Rapper, singer and purveyor of his own brand of “future bounce” music, Goldlink had been operating independently through his own company, Squaaash Club, since his breakthrough mixtape The God Complex. He recently signed to RCA Records after steadily building his fan base through extensive touring, exposing more fans to his seamless blend of raw-yet-relatable lyricism over electronic, funkified dance beats. Goldlink was included on the XXL’s “Freshman List” which identifies 10 new rappers on the come up each year.

Kaytranada’s music is a consistent, insatiable rhythm that carries you through disco and soul and hip-hop and R&B. The DJ and producer has had an explosive rise with his irresistible production and live sets and he’s collaborated with the likes of Anderson .Paak, Craig David, Vic Mensa, and The Internet. He rides a dominant wave throughout that could come to be seen as the signature “Kaytranada sound.”

Rapper and singer D.R.A.M. broke out with the viral single “Cha Cha” and he has quickly found a place amongst music’s mainstay. Included on Spotify’s “Spotlight on 2016” his uptempo feel-good music is the perfect recipe for the club. His rule-breaking pop lineage is on point with his second breakout single “Broccoli feat. Lil Yachty” which has appeared on the Billboard Hot 100 and streamed more than 100 Million times combined on Soundcloud and Spotify.
