CapoDon is a Dancehall/Reggae Artist based in London. His single, “Stronger and Stronga” is produced by Shawn Keyz for Kreating Dreams Media Group. Keyz is also an award-winning filmmaker and cinematographer. With inexhaustible talent, Keyz is sure to become an important figure in music and visuals – inspiring a love in his fans, for his works. Aside from the producer’s amazing professional accomplishments, the latest single would ring hollow were it not for the incredible CapoDon on the release. This song will appeal to every listener of Dancehall or Reggae – the production is rock solid with Shawn Keyz as brilliant and as dynamic as he has ever been, cementing the inevitable fact that this track wants to have a large impact on Dancehall in 2020. “Stronger and Stronga” seems like the proper progression for both the producer and the artist.

Though some new listeners may have reservations about CapoDon’s talents before the first listen, “Stronger and Stronga” has a variety of extraordinary heat to convince them otherwise. His delivery is in rare form on this song, calling upon several of his patented styles to match the intense energy of a dark, edgy riddim built from an exotic, heavy drum kit.

Despite its minimal instrumentation, the bass line, keyboards, and motivational narrative make it a tune with undeniable appeal. CapoDon’s dynamic flow, and mellifluous delivery effortlessly floats on the riddim, and becomes extra potent when juxtaposed with the shimmering keys which provides the counterbalance to both the story and boss vocals.

The song shows CapoDon’s full range of vocal acrobatics. He has an uncanny knack for melody and his singing rarely feels awkward or forced. CapoDon’s superb vocal build in pitch and intensity along with the instrumentation. “Stronger and Stronga” is filled with earthy sounds, a catchy musical arrangement, powerful yet thoughtful lyrics, and a strong vocal performance.

Faultless composition, arrangement and production, the track is a magnificent vehicle to showcase this extremely talented performer. A soulful blend of musical styles, “Stronger and Stronga” is bursting with motivational vibes and CapoDon’s highly versatile voice – rhythmically intricate with crystal clear enunciation and clever syllable accenting.

CapoDon is a skilled vocalist and performer, whose song interpretation and storytelling draws you in. And with Shawn Keyz’s finely tuned arrangement and production, it’s much more than just an enjoyable listen. Music like this gets reggae parties and the dancehall scene live and jumping.

While one-dimensional Dancehall/Reggae artists still try to figure out how to sound future. Producer Shawn Keyz, and performing artist CapoDon, are light-years beyond any potential rivals in the underground. The sparks of creativity and pure head-nodding groove are smoldering on “Stronger and Stronga”.

Matt Heart – “Back to the Start” ft.

Making a return to spotlight after battling with ill-health, accomplished musician, singer, and composer, Matt Heart once gain teams up with his talented son Jhuryll Phoenix on the emotional and heartfelt love song, “Back to the Start”. The BMA award winning singer-songwriter, who has been in the industry for 30 years, wrote this song for his wife Lori Heart, in a moment when he feared for his life, and wanted to leave a true testimony of his feelings for her. Few artists have evolved so gracefully as veteran singer-songwriter Matt Heart.

Matt Heart

Emerging as a formidable crooner, he’s never traded in romance for filthy raunch, like many of his contemporaries who ride the trap train in search mainstream success. It’s hard to argue with classic authenticity like that.  If you’ve been following this artist for a while, you know this ain’t a surprise.

Despite being incredibly underrated, Matt Heart – a self-taught keyboard player – has written and recorded some great music during his career. And his latest, “Back to the Start”, definitely falls into this category. The track features lush, modern production work.  This is a selling point by all means.

The standout backdrop includes slick hip-hop driven drums, and EDM synths, which is clearly part of the contemporary script. Matt Heart delivers a superb performance, characterized by smooth vocals.

Like the production, his vocals exemplify emotion. His tone is amazing.  This has been consistent throughout his career, regardless what he sings. Notably, he matches the swagger of younger contemporaries here, and when Jhuryll Phoenix falls in the mix, father and son kill it.

Collectively, these two creatives make sure that every aspect of this sterling project is done at its highest possible level. Matt Heart has proven time and time again why he has lasted in this business. This new music shows his growth not only as an artist but as a man.

This is Matt Heart finally accessing his soul and baring it in one “go for broke performance” that has always been missing from his catalog. You can tell quite quickly once you begin to indulge into “Back to the Start” that it’s honest, it’s powerful and most of all, it has a lot of soul.

Jhuryll Phoenix

You can really sense the deep and enormous heart Matt Heart gives in this performance. I cannot compliment it enough. I love how Matt has taken his time with the song. Every message is being heard. Every feeling will be felt.

The progression in this song is mesmerizing – The flourishing hooks, the candid rapped verse, and the soaring choruses, all grow more powerful and haunting with each listen. It prompts us over and over again that Matt is trying to remind people what real love is.

You can expect a higher level of experience and maturity considering what Matt has been through in his life.  If like he says, “Back to the Start” ft. Jhuryll Phoenix was born from the tragedy of his illness, and properly channeled through his creative touch, and the sheer love for his wife, then it can be said that Matt Heart has transformed an ocean of ardent emotion into the truest track of his creative life.

Singer, songwriter, musician, Free’ is a talented performing artist from Fuquay Varina, NC, with a passion for soul, pop, and R&B. Born Tishia LeaAnn Johnson, she discovered her love for music in the church, when at the tender age of 8 she sang her first solo to acclaim. Free’ recently joined up with rapper and music executive, Katrell The Phenomenal, in a smoothly explosive collaboration on the track “Darlin”. The beat production is done by DoomGotBeats, while the Recording & Engineering was executed by Emmy Award Winner, Ted Etheridge, at Music Box Studio, in North Carolina.

This is the kind of music where you sit back and sip on a nice glass of wine, and just let the music take you away. Prior to this single, I felt that the state of music, especially R&B/hip-hop, was so abysmal that I had hesitated to purchase new works of this blend of music for several years. Now finally, R&B/hip-hop that was intelligent and adult and deviated from the standard of juvenile, was in my media player with “Darlin”.

This track is like listening to the best in soul, R&B, and rap at the same time. It’s a true musical treasure. Every lyric sounds as if it was written with the care of a poem, and Free’s voice is truly mesmerizing. Ms. Free’ simply has her own style and flavor.

Free has that infectious vibe and atmosphere. You can immerse yourself in her music and just relax and let go while being enlightened to what she is expressing through her intimate thoughts. Free’ owns a strong vocal instrument and her honey molasses voice will coat all your senses.

“Darlin” is smooth, and symbolizes the beauty of love. Here you have the passion and melodrama of a romantic adventure as told from both sides, as Katrell The Phenomenal brings his confident and comfortable flow to the table.  KAP is a prolific musician and rapper.

KAP is in a class by himself. His rhymes speak to the heart of every matter he affronts, and it’s no different on “Darlin”. Together with Free’, the two artists show that they know how to express music that’s made to touch the heart, spirit, and soul.

Free’ and Katrell The Phenomenal are subdued, but loud. Implicit, yet bombastic; calm, collected, but cool…and they know it. When you throw it all together, all of these factors make for a radiating release that not only hints at the artists’ true genius, but lets it shine all throughout.

The underground scene is where the real artists are, and Free’ along with Katrell The Phenomenal will have you turning your radio dial to the far left of mainstream. Find out more about these talented recording artists, and do not miss out on “Darlin” which is now available online on various streaming platforms and digital stores through TruBrilliance Entertainment LLC.

LD Williams is one of those authentic modern day troubadours. The London based artist writes all his own Indie Pop & Soul songs, and records them at home on an iPhone. Influenced by music from the 60’s through to the 90’s with a Britpop flavor, the singer-songwriter is fresh on the block and building his catalog.  Williams’ music doesn’t possess the immediacy that one would expect from the usual pop fodder. Take his double-sided single “California”, which consists of the songs, “California” & “I’ll Promise You This”. The bedroom production is understated; the core guitar riffs, a fluttery, jangly thing; and the choruses, sing-able instantly irresistible tunes. When broken down, these songs seem like they could have been classic singer-songwriter tracks in a dozen different situations, but something about LD Williams as an artist makes it possible for him to take the ordinary and, through detailed and somewhat off-kilter songwriting and singing, elevate it to something truly great.

LD Williams music rewards patience. One won’t likely find the clear pop single or other such bids for instant chart-climbing. Yet even in their raw state, listen after listen, Williams’ songs expand with newfound depth. The crisp banging beat on the opening track “California” provides itself with an edgy briskness, surrounded by the energetic strum of Williams’ acoustic guitar.

For much of the song, it’s just voice, guitar, and drums. LD Williams adopts a kind of precision-driven songwriting, a sort of deceptive minimalism. Even as the song builds in sonic impact, there’s never a shred of excess, as Williams’ voice powerfully resonates to reach its crescendo.

LD Williams arranging and performance approach benefits the textural and narrative feeling of the record. This works especially well on the second track. When Williams tells a story using poetic imagery, as he does on songs like the show-stopping “I’ll Promise You This” – garnished with an understated but fiery electric guitar solo – everything about Williams’ brilliance comes full circle.

Something about the way the song begins with a combination of the drumbeat and Williams’ own guitar playing seems inevitable and self-propelled. The natural progression of the song from verse to chorus to verse is a mark of good song writing. They track has a potent chorus, and Williams’ voice, is excellent at conveying emotion.

LD Williams has the ability to write songs which grow more captivating over time. His impressive songwriting achieves a rare balance: hearkening back to sounds of earlier music eras while pointing forward toward less trod creative ground.

But it’s his touch of the troubadour style, woven in with the soul revealing lyrics and edgy expressive voice that will catch the public’s attention. And in reality, that’s the true victory at the heart of “California”, which is executed with conviction.

LD Williams presents himself as a complete artist with these songs, but more importantly, he also accurately conveys the notion that he’s completely at ease doing his thing. This is a perfect introduction to the world of LD Williams for those unfamiliar with this talented singer-songwriter. Without gloss and pretense, “California” is a job very well done, frankly.

Lady Bain is a true songstress with deep expression and a vocal range that is out of this world http://jamsphere.com/newreleases/lady-bain-is-a-true-songstress-with-deep-expression-and-a-vocal-range-that-is-out-of-this-world http://jamsphere.com/newreleases/lady-bain-is-a-true-songstress-with-deep-expression-and-a-vocal-range-that-is-out-of-this-world#respond Sun, 26 Jan 2020 01:00:41 +0000 http://jamsphere.com/?p=37975 Let’s start by saying that Lady Bain is a true songstress with deep expression and a vocal range that is out of this world.

Let’s start by saying that Lady Bain is a true songstress with deep expression and a vocal range that is out of this world. She is unlikely ever to be pigeonholed with the seemingly never-ending mother-lode of cloned pop R&B singers, but has instead carved a veritable niche in slick, adult, soul grooves. Adult, not in the sense of being rude about sex, but adult in the sense of sounding worldly wise and experienced about relationships, hardships and love.

Lady Bain relies on solid song-craft and musical arranging that allows her voice, never overstated, room to breathe. Her confidence is both comforting and admirable. Lady Bain is one of a handful of authentic artists, who are chiseling at the foundations of an industry which is shoveling garbage down our ears.

If you haven’t yet checked out any of Lady Bain’s records, there’s every reason to start with her single “Yes To Love”. One listen and you will return to a moment of nostalgia as Lady Bain caters to listeners’ heartstrings with her powerful vocals, lush harmonies, and poignant lyrics.

The combination of a richly-textured arrangement and a superb production make for a very strong track. Authentic elements of the singer’s old school roots are sure to please listeners with a riveting performance as rendered by this gifted vocalist. Lady Bain effortlessly captures the multidimensional nature of womanhood within her music.

Lady Bain is an R&B sensation coming out of Detroit. In an era when so many artists try to stake a claim to be ‘real’, Lady Bain has walked a path that makes her more ‘real’ than most. Just four years ago Cassandra Bain was a hard working Detroit police officer who found herself in a near fatal car accident. It ended her career and tragedy struck again when she lost the love of her life to dementia.

Real life can be painful, but can also guide us to new places. A chance visit from a high school friend reminded Cassandra of a special talent, tucked away. During her rehabilitation she began to sing again, and Bain is no ordinary singer.

Drawing passion and soul from her Baptist Church singing roots, Lady Bain’s voice is also cut through with the pain and rawness of a real life, lived. Influenced by Nat King Cole, Sam Cooke, and Nancy Wilson, to name just a few, Lady Bain’s vocal is both classic and fresh. Her unique phrasing marks her out as an R&B talent with something worth paying special attention to.

Lady Bain’s island heritage adds edge and spice to a sophisticated performance; the truth of her life experience forges an original sound that echoes the legendary singers that shaped her style. Bain even started out in the 80s singing alongside the legendary Martha Reeves.

There is integrity here; style and real substance. Available across all social media platforms and about to make a splash on the scene, such is her gift, Lady Bain simply demands to be heard. Seek out a modern day classic – listen to Lady Bain today.

Northwest-based artist, rapper, and musician, C0MBINE, formerly known as Lone Seeker 777, started out his creative career in 2014 writing the song “I’ll Never Forget” in a junior talent show. He has since built upon that initial foray, raising the bar on each subsequent release – the single “K1ck It”, then the album “Rise”, followed by “Christian Girl” in 2018. The fruit of his endeavors though, started to truly come to the fore with the release of his double-sided single “Duetz” in November 2019, which was positively received by fans and critics alike. Beautiful instrumentals and thought provoking lyrics drive the core of these songs. If you’re looking for something different than the crass club bangers on the radio, this is perfect soulful and melodic riding music.

C0MBINE adds to his easygoing, rhyme-slinging status, by penning emotional, infectious melodies while keeping it lyrical. “Conscious rap” is a term used to describe rappers like this. Their songs have more meaning compared to most modern pop-rappers. Not only does C0MBINE make attentive and aware statements, but he does so in a perfect way through his music.

Beginning with “Bloodstream”, this double-sided single is ripe with lessons learned from flirting with matters of an afflicted heart. The nocent aftermath of a relationship is thoroughly worked through on this track, as C0MBINE pours his heart out verse after verse in vivid detail.

On “Bloodstream”, the rapper quickly cuts to the cause: “It was a long time comin / We were talkin marriage had a ring on the finger / Been together 4 years but maybe I had lingered / But now I got a fifth to myself and now i gotta say / It’s in my bloodstream”.

And then at then doesn’t waste any time in avoiding the effects: “So fill another bottle up to the top / Cuz I can’t get you outta my mind / So imma party all night, I ain’ never gonna stop / Till they tell me I am runnin out of time.” Overall, the melodic wordsmith has forgone boisterous offensive and denigrating rhymes, conveying a lyrical maturity that never preaches, but explains — something that many of his peers generally don’t reach until a handful of albums have come in.

Raising the bar as an emerging emcee with his captivating word play and distinguished flow, C0MBINE’s laidback and moody delivery is a shining gem and a vital component of this project on a whole. The production is soulful and jazzy with smooth guitars and warm keys creating a chilled downtempo atmosphere.

Embracing a sound that seats him in a class of his own, C0MBINE’s skill and unique canorous feel again comes to the fore on the afflicting “Message Within”: “My heart was torn to pieces / Shattered what was mine / Loneliness has taken hold upon my mind / I crave something more than this / Superficial life I live / I want to feel nothing but bliss.” Slowly, but steadily the Northwest-based artist quietly carves out an incredibly empathetic track here.

From the outset of “Duetz”, C0MBINE takes charge with authority, and the emotional vibes never quite leave for the entirety of the project. He creates that perfect balance of airtight production and melodic singing that make his verses pop that much more. C0MBINE manages to meditate on love without coming across as preachy or without coming up with a resolution for his affairs.

A compelling storyteller and a crafty poet when C0MBINE creatively catches fire, his tracks will have you spellbound. The double-side single “Duetz” was written, produced and performed by C0MBINE. With instrumentals by Azhja and PRG, and beats by Raspo Beats.

Though I urge you to support the artist via Spotify and Bandcamp, all songs by C0MBINE are downloadable for FREE on his website. Find all links below.

Rajah Mahdi Byrd is a Recording Artist from Glassboro, NJ. Born two months premature, he received brain damage during delivery, resulting in cerebral palsy. However despite this bad turn of events he has still managed to live a normal and social life growing up. In 2010 Rajah started recording music as a means to express his opinion on social situations and issues. It became a frequent hobby and in 2013 he decided to start taking it more seriously.

Rajah’s goal is to create a solid platform with his music and to eventually spark social reform with the values and ideals he portrays in his art. Planning to drop a single a week, Rajah also has a penchant for media software, such as Photoshop and Final Cut Pro.

Rajah Mahdi is able to paint dark tones as wells as with bright yellows and reds. Everything he does feels active. He doesn’t ride beats so much as bounce all over them, all while those same beats are tumbling all over the vessel they reside in.

A quick run through his growing catalogue and you can see that Rajah shows that he’s more than willing to experiment and toss new ingredients into his pot in order to cook up entirely different meals on each release. He has shown an enthusiasm for going against the grain in an effort to stand out among his peers.

Those same qualities exist on tracks like “The Get Right” (Prod. Lucid Soundz), “Jesus Piece” (Prod. CashMoneyAP) and Picasso (Prod. CamGotHits), where he effortlessly shifts between energies that somehow manages to be both soothing and ravaging.

The songs are radiant with resonating instrumentation and stacked vocals, and rarely take time to breathe. It’s a welcome addition to a genre that has become so occupied with spacey, bare-bones operations and overly simplistic results. Rajah Mahdi’s raps always attempt a balance of style and substance, as he dips in and out of profundity.

As often as Rajah’s songs express good taste and synergy, they make some fascinatingly moves. There are moments when Rajah’s rhymes are incredibly revealing too. With the flood of new school hip hop artists that don’t rely on lyrical terms, Rajah is a reassuring reminder that rap artists who practice original hip hop still exist. There’s no denying Rajah Mahdi’s talent. He can fit the mold of almost any beat thrown at him.

Just listening to his last three track releases, the production proves to be top-notch and Rajah’s flow marches with the drums and high hats. There are so many rappers in today’s hip hop who are all trying to sound the same, same productions, rap about the same old things, but it’s finally nice to see some originality come to the table.

Rajah Mahdi’s projects are full of warm shimmering sonics, layered with lyrics that drip with vivid details. Along with style and flair, his enigmatic charisma and bass-busting soundscapes will keep you coming back for more.

Jermaniel “Big Miz” Harris and known as Mr. 716 hails from Niagara Falls, New York. Taking great pride in repping his city, Big Miz has been steadily developing a fanbase across North America, including major hip-hop cities such as NYC, Miami, Cleveland, and Atlanta. He has had the pleasure of performing alongside prime contenders such as Scarface, 50 Cent, Fat Joe, The Eastside Boyz, T.I., and Gucci Mane. A Business Administration major Mr. 716 Big Miz is also an entrepreneur at the core, which smartly assists him in promoting a series of successful projects, including DBT Music Group. The New York artist is currently riding the waves with two releases – The seventeen track mixtape “Still Hot Wit It”, and the fourteen track album “The Black Tie Tape”, which we’re focusing on.

Mr. 716 Big Miz’s poetic passion and deep philosophy often make him a wonder to listen to. Something I admire about him is that despite his elevated content, his words always hit home on a level you can feel. He is very down to earth, and his style is one of the more distinctive in current hip-hop.

Even though its 2020, the realness is reminiscent of the sound that was so prominent in the best time for hip-hop. Most of the production on “The Black Tie Tape” brings nothing less than impeccable for Mr. 716 Big Miz to lay down his inspiring material. What separates this emcee from many of his genre brethren, is his ability to give inner-city narratives a three-dimensional perspective, as opposed to just stereotypical shit-talk.

For this album, Mr. 716 Big Miz has gathered an impressive list of producers and features from the underground scene. Together they have created one of the most compelling hip-hop albums I have had the pleasure to hear during the last few months. From beginning to end, there are absolutely no skippable moments on “The Black Tie Tape”.

From the moment Big Miz kicks off the EP with the title track, every verse is well conceived and his lyrics are completely heartfelt. Whereas many put out albums full of fake ramblings, and other commercial braggadocio, Mr. 716 Big Miz spills his soul to the listener.

Armed with luscious sampling and thickly layered beats, the sound quality on this release is perfect, the production always fitting the mood of each track. Many of these ambitious pieces are mainly introspective and smooth, allowing plenty of room for Mr. 716 Big Miz to flex his lyrical skills, which is exactly what he does on “Get to It” ft. Raw. While every track is excellent, there are several that are most noteworthy.

The soulful “Party All Night” ft. Abeer has a mellifluous and resonating hook that is perfect for creating a sultry mood.  “Screaming They in They Bag” ft. King Mufasa rides on a jazzy cinematic score as Mr. 716 Big Miz spits truthful and intelligent lines. Both “Different Ways” ft. Raw x Boog x Horsey Da Son God and “Link” ft. Cutta are heartfelt and reflective pieces, featuring relentless raps.

The eulogy “Eastside City Life” ft. Poppy Chu is introduced by swirling horns and strings, and epitomizes introspective street poetry over soulful production. Another 70’s styled horn-blowing cinematic backdrop drives “Macarena” ft. Jamal Gasol, Boog and “Team Motivation Chaser” freestyle Ft. Boogz x Gunz.

Life and experiences are delivered with excellent lyrics and flow every time, on “We Hustle” ft. Horsey Da Son God, “Live” and Motivation Chaser ft. Jamal Gasol, Gunz. “938 In The Morning” ft. Magic is a killer ballad, and one of the most atmospherically compelling tracks on the album. The vocals are captivating on this one. “So Much Pain” ft. Maze Musiq x Gunz x Boog is a serious cultural lesson dealt with heartfelt affliction.

Throughout this recording Mr. 716 Big Miz’s earth-toned voice and impressive narrative style will infinitely grow on you, and will do so more with every listen. If one thing is evident across this album, it’s that Big Miz actually has a love for what he’s doing and every rhyme is letting you know that.

If you want an album that will not disappoint you from beginning to end, then “The Black Tie Tape” is it. It’s not just one of those albums you grab for a few singles you heard on the radio, this is more than that, it is a complete album without any filler – all tracks coming from the heart, and a true love of the game.

Texas-based rapper, Kidricc James drops his dynamic new single “Gravy”. The track which has been peaking on Digital Radio Tracker’s Global Top 150 Independent Airplay Chart, is also supported by an engaging video shot in Houston. If I had to give a quick intro into this track, it would be: Great emotional depth in storytelling. Engaging beat. Thoroughly satisfying rap skills. More than just multisyllabic rhymes. Relatable and relevant. I think Kidricc James accomplished his intents with this track. “Gravy”really revolves around him in a much more different way than his prior works.

It’s his vision in a much fuller way, and to me presents a personal feeling and intent. Don’t get me wrong this is still a bravado-bound song, but there’s much more layers being peeled back here and messages being put out. He dug deep into nostalgia, relationships, community, family, hustle and social issues, reflecting on them in very real ways.

Suffice to say I really think this is a great track from the lyrics, to the powerful, very dope production across the board that supports the storyline. There’s a lot of sonic content driving this, personal and straight-up hip hop record. This is both inspiring headphone and street music.

It’s a great work of art that makes you think and feel, and gives you an intimate look into Kidricc James’ mindset. What’s found in the track, even prior to the storyline though, is an excellent display of Texas energy. Kidricc dives in on “Gravy” over booming 808s and shimmering keys, which set the tone for the hard-hitting production heard throughout the track.

Whatever you think of the debate between rap generations, there’s no denying the lyrical power of Kidricc James. For Kidricc, that lyrical power most often comes in the form of vivid storytelling, which here is truly film-like. His voice resonates as he exclaims, “You cannot mess with me. I got angels protecting me.”

Listening to this track, Kidricc sounds like he’s a veteran at life. And when the meat of the track finally arrives, his extraordinary lyricism and storytelling shines through. Kidricc captures listeners with his poetic style of flowing, and gives us a nostalgic feel. Unlike many of his contemporaries, Kidricc James manages to make his truths into a digestible listen.

Kidricc James has built a strong reputation as a lyricist, possibly one of the best out there right now in the underground. Lyrically, he is an emcee who doesn’t disappoint and is continually listened to, for his talent at crafting bars. The gravity in his words is matched by the sound of the production.

He shows dexterity in how he approaches the song, frequently switching his cadence and delivery. His honesty is intentional and it’s bound to deepen the connection between Kidricc and his fans. For anyone who has been following his career since “The Warning” in 2005 – and even those who have been following him since more recently – “Gravy” is a welcomed progression in a life story that leaves no stone unturned.

It can be groovy, it can be emotional, it can be messed up, its an experience to a transcendental space of mind. It emerges from influences like ancient music of J.S. Bach to Frank Zappa to modern music styles of Daft Punk, or from classical music to Rock n roll to punk to Electronic Dance Music.

Music is a complex term to just understand from a very general point of view. Its definition might keep changing from person to person depending upon their inclination and experience socially or culturally. “Water Music” might be able to bring these together and one may be able to share similar listening experience because it is not a musical product but a reflection of a free mind of the composer who just want to say something via sonic elements.

Musical patterns, could be complex and hard to understand at times but that’s just the tension which will resolve at a point depending upon the mood of the performer. It can be lofi to hifi, the idea is to stay truthful and honest about their mixed emotion.

Dependency and limitation towards expression in music can cross boundaries to a large extent when one creates music in a very open space and elements are from all over the place, from infinity. It can be on hand just a pop song with peppy melodies and bass lines and suddenly can become a polyphonic or homophonic musical matter.

The improvisational nature of “Water Music” indulges the new audience, specially those who like to explore creativity and want to be entertained not by plastic musical products imposed on them but with the real joy, of say the real rock n roll era.

Real elements to water music are not the musical notes theory but actually its building blocks are forms of music genre from rock and pop to hip-hop to EDM to classical music to urban to the future to folk and the list goes on and on. Musicians will use music genres as real elements to actually translate their thoughts generating a medium to connect to their audiences.

The Bombay Masked e- Fiddler is a music producer, live-set artist and a violinist, who picked up the instrument at the age of 9. He pursued his early music education in Delhi School of music learning, in western classical method, so he was playing music written by JS Bach, Beethoven, Mozart etc. without having much familiarity with such styles, being raised in Delhi in a very no music background environment. Although, he had always been a rock n roll fan back then.

The Bombay Masked e- Fiddler’s love and passion for making music then further led him to the University of Adelaide, Elder Conservatorium where I studied music under the masters like Keith Crellin and Stephen Whittington and achieved a degree in Music integrated with classical music on Violin plus electronic music as his major subjects.

Apart from being a classical violinist, he has been a member of rock bands, electronic music ensembles, contemporary music ensembles and has pretty much collaborated with very diverse bands and groups of music genres like rock and pop, hip hop, Indian classical, metal, experimental to Avant-garde.

Lil Richie 92 was born and raised in Florence, South Carolina. His recent hot streak with his breakthrough album and the recent promotional tour directly leads to huis latest single “Kobe”, the high point of the artist’s career so far and a perfect showcase of a rapper in his absolute prime. It’s a monster trap-induced track that feels like a massive radio hit right from the get-go.  Perhaps the greatest progression shown between his earlier releases and his latest cut, is Lil Richie 92’s ability to carry a project on his own.

Here the artist proves that he doesn’t need outside help to be a success. He’s carved out his own style and few can do it as well as he can. “Kobe” says a lot about Lil Richie 92’s confidence in his own abilities, and listening to the track, he’s absolutely right in having that confidence.

The progression of Lil Richie 92’s as a rapper in a few short years, may be the biggest highlight of “Kobe”, but a project like this certainly needs heavy-hitting production. The beat provided certainly is a heavy hitter, with a booming bassline and skittering hi-hats. There are probably few producers out there that can soundtrack Lil Richie 92’s unique style quite like this.

Lil Richie 92, especially with his unorthodox style, will likely be a polarizing figure. Some will see him as a model for the new wave of hip-hop moving into an alternative direction, while others may see him as a threat on the genre’s old school, purist stylistics as a whole.

Whether or not “Kobe” changes anyone’s perspective on the eclectic artist remains to be seen, but it does create the most vivid, most consistent portrait we’ve seen of him yet. In recent times, Lil Richie 92 has dropped an album, singles and a handful of music videos.

Releasing a fair amount of music isn’t unheard of, but for it all to be consistently strong and inventive certainly is. Seeking ascendancy to the underground trap throne, Lil Richie 92 has refined his aesthetic to such a degree, and is such a gifted songwriter, that even his minor works, such as a single track release, is thoroughly engaging.

“Kobe”, his latest track seems to climax his growth-arc, and is downright predatory. The synths sounds spectral and ominous, and the auto-tuned melodicism drips from every bar. He drops fiery lines in the genre’s signature warble, emphasizing every distinctive peculiarity in his expressive voice. And it’s a reminder of just how special an artist Lil Richie 92 is.

The deep bass-heavy beat paired with the rapper’s vocal excursions proves to be an entrancing combination. Lil Richie 92’s song-making ability is undeniable, and the high energy levels present throughout “Kobe” never tapers off. The track proves that Lil Richie 92 has a winning formula and that there’s no end in sight, as he is getting ready to gain a massive rise in his artistic status during the upcoming year.

EAST ATLANTA native and Independent content producer, 32BRANDONB, the CEO of TrapStorm Productions releases video for “Bruce Lee” off the trap classic mixtape “Trap Perfect” on YouTube and Soundcloud. THE OJF TAPE IS FINISHED and on iTunes and Spotify. 32BRANDONB is busy working on the UNDERGROUND TRAPKINGS MOVIE. It is the story of his life despite attempts to stop production.

The single is undeniably the product of a strong will. Autobiography and honesty seems to be central to his artistry, and “Bruce Lee” keeps present reality at the forefront. 32BRANDONB’s music is inseparable from his personal life, loaded with drama and intrigue.

The Chicago and Atlanta rapper showcases his vibrant personality, within noticeably roomy, melodic sonic contours, which ultimately gives the good, realistic, and delightful grey areas of his lyrics some refreshing new context.

Throughout, 32BRANDONB has enough emotional street talk tucked away in his shell to more than fill the track all by himself. It’s a showcase of versatility that plays to 32BRANDONB’s strengths enough to feel like a definitive statement, no matter how many other projects he’s released before it.

The best place to start a resume of K’Aelle strengths, is his voice, a finely tuned instrument that lies at the core of his appeal. It’s rich, nimble, and agile, and possessed of surprising range; in many ways, it’s the musical manifestation of the artist’s skill as a performer and songwriter. Though he’s undoubtedly technically skilled, K’Aelle also has the emotional depth and richness of tone required to successfully convey affection and generate a palpable mood. Which is exactly what he does on his latest single, “Your Love”, supported by an enchanting video clip.

The agility in his voice pairs well with the strain of minimal electro-R&B currently in vogue. The groovy “Your Love” is refreshing and romantic too. And when it’s time for K’Aelle to get sentimental and deeply introspective, he sounds surprisingly sincere. This is his confessional of sorts. He is letting the world know just where his heart is.

The deep thinking greater artists of our time don’t shoot from the hip. They are good administrators of their gifts. They curate their work carefully. They don’t rest simply on raw talent. They push themselves. They constantly aspire to move forward. They command respect by earning it and serving it. Greatness radiates from even the smallest gestures and details within their songwriting and performances. K’Aelle shows flashes of this potential on the thoughtful “Your Love”.

Raised in Inglewood, California, Matt Draco’s prowess blends his aggressive West Coast personality with his nimble New York inspired rhyme schemes. As a child he studied the lyricism of creatives such as Notorious B.I.G, J. Cole, and Jay-Z, and by the time he was 14, Matt also taught himself how to compose orchestral music, enhancing his musical understanding and vision. By the age of 18, Matt Draco had the honor of conducting University Preparatory School’s orchestra twice, with two different pieces composed by himself. He then returned to his native Hip-hop roots releasing a series of freestyles and singles on Soundcloud, keeping intact his ambition to revolutionize the scene while maintaining the genre’s original core authenticity.

Matt Draco is a paradoxical figure, equal parts old-school battle rapper and new-wave millennial prophet. “Get Off” is his latest single. Draco is at his most entertaining when indulging his eccentricities.

While most rappers try to stress their hardcore street knowledge, Draco has a persona that stresses not only his undeniable strengths as a lyricist, but his distinctly urgent polysyllabic flow. And while the rapper’s offhand sounding, but complex verses can be breathtaking, he’s also supported by coactive production. Together they crush unseen foes with credible vibe and technical precision.

A quick run through his discography and you’ll realize that for witty punchlines, dynamic wordplay, fierce lyrics, raw intensity, and exceptional delivery, Matt Draco is a sure bet. There are no lackluster tracks featured, every track is worth listening attention, and the single, “Get Off”, is no exception.

A typically ballsy track, lilting percussion and deep bass provide the backdrop for this one, and the wordplay is off the charts. A chest-thumping, muscle-flexing track full of bravado, the production affirms the haunting and cautionary tone that’s burned into every word.

Easily one of his better joints, you can tell Matt Draco is reaching out to his contemporaries on this one, describing a relatable, and stressful situation.  Draco’s commanding delivery and straight-talk verses will surely be accepted by an ever increasing fan base of rap lovers that want an alternative to the club-friendly mumbled noise that rap music has permanently become.

Confidence, style, intelligence, attitude, and skill, are not words easily thrown around in the game anymore, but there still are artists like Matt Draco who are able to perpetrate the use of those descriptions.

In this day and age of short hype-circles and short attention spans, it would appear to seem that Matt Draco takes the time to craft a work of quality that really resonates, and that will undoubtedly prove to have longevity. His ear for detail is evident, and you can sense the passion that went into the creation of this track.

Matt Draco’s smooth flow is the common thread that holds this recording together. A beat and bars both of the highest quality, and endless replay value, usually means hip-hop at its finest. “Get Off” serves as both, a great exclamation point, and a perfect introduction to the authentic artistry of Matt Draco.

Kiing Dee! has been boxing since the age of 6. He grew up in the Pawtucket/Providence area where he fights out of Big Six Boxing academy. He has won many regional tournaments as well as fighting in the 2016 Olympic Trials Qualifiers and previously being ranked #2 in the country. Kiing Dee! went professional in 2018 but an Achilles injury changed his life. It forced him to do the only thing he could do while recovering on his couch and that was make music. Once he realized that people actually liked his music, he decided to take it seriously. Constantly working on his craft and looking for feedback to get better, he reached out to all of his favorite artists, and got a response from King Los who was recently featured on the Netflix show ‘Rhythm and Flow’. The result was a feature on the single “Black Kings (ft. King Los), taken from the EP “The End of Summer”.

I listened to the entire project, and this is the kind of music that can make anyone a rap and urban music fanatic. If you are the type of kid who thinks all hip-hop is crunk, gangsta, mumble and whatever other misconception about the genre you could throw in there, listen to Kiing Dee!.

This guy provides an incredible listen that can appeal to all people of all musical backgrounds; a must listen, if anything. A 10/10, classic for 2019. Better yet, his lyrics are not just tales of life in the hood, but rather the poetry of every man’s daily strife. Stories of rejection, confusion, oppression, anger, love, and hope, things that anyone can actually relate to.

I’d say about 90 percent of commercial hip-hop deals with cloned themes, and a fair amount of underground hip-hop does as well. If that alone doesn’t discredit any sort of artistic value, the repeated chants of a top 40 choruses, meaningless wordplay and recycled party beats certainly will.

Kiing Dee! avoids that formula, and still churns out catchy, easy listening tracks that don’t tax the mind, but certainly feed the soul. The styles and moods shift smoothly throughout the project with rich organic sounding productions to back up the rapper.

Kiing Dee! flows with such a captivating style, filled with intensity and melody that he keeps you coming back for more. His messages are discovered upon further listening, which is a treat in itself. There can be no doubt that “Black Kings (ft. King Los), on all levels, is the EP’s centerpiece.

The track takes the listener on a battle within Kiing Dee! psyche between his heart and his mind, and he’s not afraid to show how he feels. One of the more visceral flows on the project, Kiing Dee!’s ability as a spoken word poet definitely shines as he rhymes not phonetically but through the syllables and through his accentuation of certain words.

In short, when he opens with the words: “Being black in America, is spooky nigga,” you know exactly where he is going with this track.  Kiing Dee! tells his story throughout “Black Kings (ft. King Los), and will do anything to make sure you hear and understand it.

The song doesn’t relent, as Kiing Dee! does more than just examine himself, his relationships with other people, his grind, and the way this unjust world is still working, especially if you’re a black man. This personal integrity is what drives the entire EP and makes every track stand out.

“Black Kings (ft. King Los) is incredibly fresh and real, filling a missing void in hip hop. It’s deep thoughts, real emotions, bitter situations; it’s more than most current urban music is delivering. Talk about being a conscious emcee, Kiing Dee! is something beyond conscious…his a born fighter!

Blacc Cuzz is committed to forging a glorious way forward in his career. More importantly, he’s underscoring his critical lapses in the past for sake of the young guns who may admire him. At this stage, the Pittsburgh, PA, born and raised creative, who fashions himself as a self-made businessman in the mold of Jay-Z, is well aware of his status as an artist and record label boss at Dream Big Empire. The good-natured don of the working class can rap like the most vulgar deacon you’ll ever meet, driven by reactionary outbursts of authenticity and real Hip-Hop. Much like his influences B.G., Soulja Slim, Yo Gotti, Boosie Badazz, Gucci Mane and Jeezy, Blacc Cuzz is the voice of the streets. And if you witness or are part of an argument about his mic skills, then you’ll hear a version of the statement, “Blacc Cuzz is one of the realest in the rap game.”

Blacc Cuzz consistently sets the streets aflame by delivering tales of pain, death, drugs, hustle and triumphs of an underdog, as the upcoming underground star aggressively unloads rounds of fire to remind everyone of his past struggles and the morals he stands by. “We graduated from the streets and we’re grown now,” says Blacc Cuzz. “That’s why we’re going to give them the story in music.”

His Trap-inspired project “Stretch It”, follows this formula, sporting hard, malicious production and a set of honest accounts. Blacc Cuzz allows for the listener to connect to his situation, continuing to share bits and pieces of his life inside his plain-speaking narratives.

Blacc Cuzz’s gritty, but optimistic persona shines through on every track, especially on the single “Wadd Up Doe” – a captivating track, that sees Blacc Cuzz craft a sharp and focused narrative, while handling the hook himself: “I pray to God this shit jump back, cause my plug gone have a problem. And I roll around with robbers and I hang around with shooters. Imma 2 time loser motherfucker it ain’t no choosing. When that drought came and the coke was high I was still booming…”

This is the Blacc Cuzz that everyone can love. Raw lyrics, true emotion, substance, aggressive delivery, and a touch of melody; It’s all there. No doubt, Blacc Cuzz delivers to the highest extent on “Wadd Up Doe”. You can tell Blacc Cuzz is in raw form from the jump.

Over and above being a super lyrical guy, his rapping style is so in your face that it cannot be denied. All of his words hit hard, and his delivery is just fiery. If you’re familiar with Blacc Cuzz, then you know that his rhymes are vivid and true to what he’s gone though in life.

Everything he says is done in such an honest manner that you can’t help but feel it: “I’m spitting some facts nigga I been bout a bag nigga. I love the Pyrex I call that dry sex when I drop an it come back. Imma call my dog please run that, I’m working with a hundred pack.”

If you’re a Blacc Cuzz fan, the project “Stretch It”, as well as the single, “Wadd Up Doe” will be among your favorites of the year. If you have never really been a fan of Blacc Cuzz or have never heard him before, these latest tracks should make you respect what he brings to hip hop.

The independent emcee and CEO, is a one of a kind talent. Though he brings hard truths to the table, his outlook on life is not all doom and gloom. There’s a powerful streak of underlying optimism and positivity displayed on many of his tracks too. Blacc Cuzz’s current mindset and heart is in the right place.

Indie labels and alternative artists have long struggled against the commercial and corporate music world, but extensive streaming platforms like Spotify, YouTube and Soundcloud seemed to have set a new precedent in terms of extensive exposure. Affordable home equipment might have made it possible to create music from the comfort of the average bedroom, and social media has given artists a new way to promote their own creations, but these elements have limitations if you’re a newbie on your own.

M$NEY BA3 (money before anything else) is an upcoming artist, and 25 year old military veteran old from Cleveland Ohio. The urban artist has just drop his latest single “Florida Water”. M$NEY BA3 is an artist in the best sense of the word as he stretches his muscles throughout his catalog of songs. If you’re looking for excitement and the big bang, you will find it in his collection. The artist seems to be aiming at both a hip-hop and progressive R&B audience. His vocals are great and his writing seems well above average when compared with the other acts his genre.

M$NEY BA3 is one of those artists that can take you through time and space. One minute he has you thinking about having a one night stand and then the other minute, makes you want to fall in love. He gets it right on all levels – an emotional level, a spiritual level and a sexual level.

M$NEY BA3’s songs feel intense, with lots of interesting production, and with some very nice melodies. It makes absolutely no difference whether you’re interested in this sort of thing; I mostly listen to alternative, and “Florida Water” is just so irresistible. M$NEY BA3 is himself and it shows through his soulful corduroy vocals.

Individuality is key here, because I get tired of hearing the same molded and cloned artistry, this guy brings a breath of fresh air. Never have I had so much fun listening to an R&B track. M$NEY BA3 is the perfect blend of talent and humor, a true showman. Everything about him is alluring, but most of all, everything on this track is top-tier.

M$NEY BA3’s voice is sharp and elastic, effortlessly crafting melodies from thin air. I couldn’t tell you a moment on this track that doesn’t feel captivating, and it’s because of M$NEY BA3’s understanding of his own voice. M$NEY BA3 is expanding the genre outward, showing a glimpse of growth within itself.

With “Florida Water”, M$NEY BA3 broadens his spectrum to suit a wide spectrum of urban tastes and by doing so creates a diversity that hasn’t been seen in an R&B track for a long time. Much of “Florida Water” sees M$NEY BA3 at his most devilishly charming, as he crafts an image that is so fitting to song that you can’t help but smile, nod your head, and hum along to it.

By being able to effectively construct his style with an open-minded recognition of how his other R&B and Hip-hop companions construct their music, this is M$NEY BA3 at his highest evolutionary state.

Easily appraisable for its soulfully eclectic vibe and skilled songwriting, “Florida Water” expertly fuses together elements of R&B, pop, hip-hop, dancehall, trap and soul, to create a cohesive, idiosyncratic sound.

M$NEY BA3 certainly knows how to utilize his voice to great effect. From the infectious way he holds and twists every phrase during the verse, to his adlib interludes, it’s M$NEY BA3’s vocal contributions that make “Florida Water” such a memorable track.

Rico Homicide – “Nothing to Lose” – The ultimate tension-builder that manages to keep soaring! http://jamsphere.com/reviews/rico-homicide-nothing-to-lose-the-ultimate-tension-builder-that-manages-to-keep-soaring http://jamsphere.com/reviews/rico-homicide-nothing-to-lose-the-ultimate-tension-builder-that-manages-to-keep-soaring#respond Fri, 06 Dec 2019 15:12:17 +0000 http://jamsphere.com/?p=37412 Born in Springfield (MA), Rico Homicide started out as DJ Homicide at age 12.

Born in Springfield (MA), Rico Homicide started out as DJ Homicide at age 12. His hunger for succeeding in the music business allowed him to work with big name stars and also become a DJ/Host on illradio.net during the 2000’s with owner Yukked Up. Besides being on illradio, Homicide’s music was played from Hot 97 in New York to Hot 93.7 in Connecticut. Currently Rico has dropped his latest single, entitled “Nothing to Lose”.

This song shows how the artist has matured over the years and how he is moving towards becoming a huge voice in underground hip-hop. The track doesn’t just sound like a song that was thrown together at the last minute. Everything from the beat selection to the lyrics and performance is on point.

If Rico Homicide ever proclaims himself a student of the game, he certainly proves it with “Nothing to Lose” that pairs the new school vibes, with old school street-styled rap, as he bridges the genre’s fraught generational gap. Opting to be both multifaceted and flashy, Rico demonstrates the kind of versatility and maturity that should comfort anyone that might have been worried about the genre’s future.

It doesn’t hurt that the track slaps. Right from the get go, Rico doesn’t waste any time amping up expectations: “I’m just a motherfucking killer, I got nothing to prove. I just be hustling motherfucker, I got nothing to lose.” This is the ultimate tension-builder that manages to keep soaring.

Rico Homicide seems zeroed in, and he has a very clear purpose. It’s a fire-and-brimstone approach, as he warns everybody of his status and intentions. He’s clearly not backing down from any challenge. The emotional highs in the song, which Rico clearly poured himself into, are astoundingly high. He doesn’t let a single bar go to waste. Rico is walking the walk, and then talking the talk.

You can’t fault him if you can’t find the fault in his approach. He has made it a point to be outspoken because he feels a new kind responsibility in his life. It’s clear he’s taken this approach and pushed it directly into his music. His ideas are clear, and the production bangs. Rico sounds invigorated, and both his music and his fans are better for it.

On “Nothing to Lose”, his latest single, Rico Homicide raps with the same hunger, passion and drive that many of his peers initially came into the game with – eventually earning them classic status. Rico has that same sense of purpose and direction, while telling a tale that his core audience will be built around. He clearly has a lot to say, as he raps loudly and passionately.

“Nothing to Lose”, thrust forward by Rico’s sense of purpose and righteous fury, brims with the spirit of a crusader. A chronicler of street life, an escapist and a realist, Rico is an inspired hustler on this track.

Rico Homicide is focused on proving that his initial dream is worthy of being chased. He leaves the booth showing his evolution as an artist, poised to make his craft a reality. Rico nails the beat, dropping straight fire on the verses. All he needs to do now is keep his momentum going.
