Ceo/ Rapper/ Songwriter/ Motivational Speaker. Fire Proof T.B is changing the face of Hip Hop, Gospel, and music, as we know it today. T.B is coming into hip hop like a thief, not to provoke, but to save it. He expresses this through his music, coming from 1 Thessalonians 5:2. In 2007, Fire Proof T.B came out with a sample mix tape (passed out over 5,000 cds) that gave him a buzz through Memphis and Arkansas. TB put out a song called ‘I’m Wit Christ’ that received numerous airplay on 95.7fm and 92.7fm Holly Springs, Ms.

TB takes his message straight to the streets to most secular and non-secular audience. His lyrics promote nonviolence and encouraging lifestyles. He sincerely believes that drugs and gangs are not the way to go, thus demonstrating this through his music. He worked with Man Up Foundation, Memphis Union Mission, and Stevie Moore Back to School. He believes in keeping Christ first and the airwaves are a great place to be heard.

Fire Proof T.B has shared the stage with Canton Jones, Mr. Del, K-drama, Fro, and F1 Diamond just to name a few. In 2009, Fire Proof TB strayed away from Gospel Rap. Although he never had a problem drinking, smoking, clubbing, or cursing! He had lust for women.

Fire Proof TB says, “It took God to show him that you can’t live both lives.” In 2012 he released his mixtape “Sinner 2A Saint” (Over 10,000 in the streets) with his hit single “JC WALKIN”. God has blessed Fire Proof T.B to receive various air plays in Memphis and surrounding cities.

Fire Proof T.B says, “It has always been a dream to get air play on 107.1 fm being a Gospel Artist”. In 2012, his dream came true, now he reaches not only Christians but unbelievers as well. Fire Proof T.B is happy about his accomplishments but even happier about God’s Grace and mercy towards him.

Fire Proof T.B says, “He’s happy God showed him his purpose and is using him as a solider to fight for the lost souls”. We need more positive influences for our young generation to let them know that there’s a better way. Fire Proof T.B is on radio rotation with his latest track “Numbers”.

Two Brothers with two very different stories and one great passion, music. Conservatory, home recording, and the nineties hits, are just pieces of everything they are. Davide – writer, arranger of great artists, and Carlo – composer, video maker, songwriter, graphic designer. From Parma to the world, comes the Dv Bros, with their single “Right From The Start” ft. Jenna Evans.

While it may not be true in other musical genres, or even frowned upon as if it indicates lack of talent, collaboration in the genre of electronic music quite often leads to incredible results. Electronic music done beautifully is perfectly demonstrated in this track. It’s a warm, satisfying zone-out, with a sweet melody and delicate synths, where Jenna Evans gives a soulfully understated performance to captivate the ears.

The Dv Bros have impressed me with their composition and production skills. Blending gentle vocals and electronics with inventiveness and creativity, the song quickly lures you, mirage-like, to its moods and textures – mellifluous in melody, lush and layered. “Right From The Start” ft. Jenna Evans is more than just ultra-sophisticated EDM listening.

Satgame (aka SAT GAME) is a hip hop artist out of Detroit with more music to his name than most of his indie peers. He came into this world at 8:03am on the 26th day of November in 1989 and since then has been doing whatever it takes to make his mark. This year he was featured alongside some of the most talented acts heating up the hip hop scene on Bongo Boy Records’ Volume XVI, but soon enough he’ll be impressing on his own once more with his Bentley Records release, My Bentley So Cold.

Many fans caught wind of Satgame back in 2014 when he dropped, Heart of a Warrior, Vol. 1 (under Sat Game). Since then he’s released a cascade of music from “My Shit So Cold” to “Niggas Made Cause Dey Pockets Little.” Within each of his tracks, listeners can find everything from lyrical finesse to raw hip hop ideals. Those are the qualities found in his previous releases and those are what to expect when My Bentley So Cold drops soon.

Satgame’s music is available around the world, including Australia and Mexico. Those interested in adding new hip hop to their playlists, reviewing his music, or interviewing Satgame can reach out via the information provided below.

HYPE is a 24 year-old Music Producer from the UK. He has just drop his latest track “Test Drive”. The sleek, hip-hop-influenced sounds of HYPE’s palette are not shackled to one sole style as he infuses it with plenty of electronica. His saturated synths and indelible bounce are clearly his signatures, so it’s no surprise those qualities shimmer throughout this latest release. This project exhales confidence, and is a skittering joint that unfurls with the sheen of artisanal diligence.

HYPE’s template balances neon warmth with urban urgency. “Test Drive” is emboldened by the producer’s personality, as he spends time flirting around with synth stabs and swells before tying it together for this tightly wound slow-burn rhythm.

It is a chilled-out seven-minute plus instrumental that floats on a glistening bed of synths and deep elastic basslines. With multiple listens, the squeaky synths burrow into your brain and stay there.

HYPE gives the song a pulsing quality where the volume of certain instruments quickly fades in and out. His bass is loud, his synths are airy and his drums slap hard. HYPE is one of the few producers out there today with a sound he made himself.

It’s music in its purist form, simple. It’s easy to get lost between the beat and sound, and before you know it, the track is over. It’s a cool instrumental to bump for any occasion and I’m excited to see what HYPE does next.

Harlequins Enigma – “Mau Tracks” (ft.

If there’s one thing I know for sure, it’s this: Listening to “Mau Tracks” (ft. Sara Jensen) by Harlequins Enigma for the first time, is an experience. You know there’s a journey ahead of you. It’s not until you fully immerse yourself, however, that you realize how intricate and beautiful that journey is. At his best, Åge Riisnes channels an ethereal, mysterious presence throughout the track. It combines jazz and fusion elements with European-synth-flair. The attention to progression is simply stunning; the focus deftly changes from calm to dramatic, sorrowful to triumphant. It rides on a groove that’s as instantly captivating as you’d expect it to be.

The music is heavily synth-based, but attention is paid to the percussion throughout “Mau Tracks” (ft. Sara Jensen); melodies and harmonies weave in and out of the soundscape painted by layers upon layers of synthesizers. The music present here is no immediate, rhythmic, accessible.

The arrangement commands your attention every step of the way. Although one can argue that it is as much of an existentialistic experience as it is a musical one, ultimately this only makes the track stronger as a whole. The underlying beauty found here is simply undeniable.

The experience of listening to this track can at times be one of commotion than of relaxation, as Harlequins Enigma employs mind-bending synth riffs and basslines. He draws you into his world with a sound that creates a trance-like state in the mind of the listener.

You get the sustained synth build-ups backed by repeating melodies and pulsating drums. It’s the kind of music that lets your mind take off between the beeps and whistles. While musically coherent and imminently appealing, Harlequins Enigma is a project distinct from scenes and trends. Progressive thinking is at the heart of its appeal.

“Mau Tracks” (ft. Sara Jensen) sounds like nothing else this year, or the year before, considering this track was recorded in 2018. Nor does it fit into any recent musical development beyond an incidental affinity with the resurgence of experimentation amongst a handful of courageous electronic producers.

Every electronic note and compositional element reeks of consideration and technical expertise that didn’t come overnight. In terms of impressive twists and turns, they’re aplenty. The track morphs, tangles, twists and reorganizes itself. I have no doubt that Harlequins Enigma has given us an excellent work of electronic music – a standout recording in an already peerless and consistent discography.

Crammed with ideas and fueled by a state of being, “Mau Tracks” (ft. Sara Jensen) is a track so immune to contemporary styles and aesthetics that it is almost by definition, timeless. The care lavished on the sound and theme is immediately evident – this is a track built for listening to on a decent audio system, its impressively layered blips and beats are an absolute aural delight. The song might seem dense and impenetrable at first, but dazzles after repeated listens.

MORE ABOUT: Harlequins Enigma is a Bergen, Norway-based band created in 2008 by synth musician, composer, and video producer, Åge Riisnes.  Harlequins Enigma is mostly a one-man-band, but Elin Berge, Katie Leung, and Sara Jensen has served as co-members with several appearances over the years.

The primary musical creations revolve around chip-tune, electronica, techno, experimental, video game soundtracks, space, ambient, and new age genres. Notwithstanding all the health issues, which has hampered his career along the way, Åge is focused on human rights, equality, positive technology, and an affinity for a natural world.

Listening to the single “Drive”, is a whole different and beyond glorious experience. Singer and songwriter, Damian Sage really outdoes himself with this one. The record, tugs at my heartstrings in the best and most beautiful gut-wrenching ways. I can feel the emotion as he sings each and every lyric. Released through Dark Spark Music, a record label headed by former Guns N Roses manager, and Grammy Award winner, Vicky Hamilton, “Drive” certainly gives me the chills each time listen to it. The two simple opening lines deliver the kind of powerful imagery most lyricists strive most of their lives to write: “If you’re gonna steal from me, steal my breath. And if you’re gonna take something, take my hand.”

Damian’s music is always full and with a depth of emotions unmatched. This particular song has the same dramatic and haunting music coupled with lyrics indicative of a man who is looking for a love adventure with a very special person: “March to my own drummer most of the time. But the spell that I’m under puts a new rhythm to my rhyme. Strands of your sun kissed hair glow like an amber sky. And I know we can catch the wind if we just try.”

If you have become accustomed to some of Damian’s previous dark reflections on life, you may find “Drive” refreshing lyrically, and you are certain to dive deep into the melody and rich warmth of the accompanying instrumentation.

However, having said that, Damian Sage is known to be a lyrical wizard and his use of metaphors is by now notorious. So while we’re daydreaming about love and a girl, the narrator could be cleverly alluding to some other attraction or tempting fascination.

This time, however, I’ll go with face-value contemplation. Damian keeps rising to the bar that he continually sets for himself, and this work is another treasure to be savored, no matter how you interpret its meaning. Each word is sung like the weight of his world depends on it. His voice beams with resonating ambience, as the piano, the strings, and percussion follow suit.

“Drive” feels raw, it feels intimate, but bold in its sentiments. The song, flaunting Damian Sage’s grasp of emotions, gradually builds to a full-band crescendo, complete with a gnarly electric guitar riffs neatly packed into the arrangement. At three minutes and thirty four seconds, the song has all the time necessary to allow the melody enough space to gather poignancy.

And when you’ve got a pure voice and aim for vocal nuancing like Damian, it all becomes deeply affecting. Hauntingly intimate, yet intensely epic – “Drive” moves from steady piano chords to swelling magnificence.

When songs are this good, this heartfelt and this perfectly crafted, they’re hard to ignore. It’s impossible to listen to “Drive” without being genuinely moved. Damian Sage’s music has always had a cinematic-like quality, but this latest single takes that aesthetic to a whole new level. Damian delivers something that ignites and burns directly in your heart.

Natalie Jean (Kensington, MD) has been nominated over 90 times for her music and has won many awards. Most recently, she won the Singer/Songwriter Gold Medal in the 2019 Global Music Awards, as well as “Versatile Artist of The Year” in the 2019 Josie Music Awards. An avid lyricist, Mike Greenly is a former Fortune 500 Mktg/Comm VP whose services now help execs and teams be more successful. He’s the author of Virginia’s new state anthem, has had 10 hit songs on the Billboard Dance Club charts, and has written award-winning choral songs. Together Natalie Jean and Mike Greenly, bring us a women’s empowerment anthem, entitled, “Love Your Own Power”. In 1973, the U.S. Congress designated August 26 as “Women’s Equality Day,” but the co-creators hope this song will inspire and motivate everyone to live the ideals of women’s equality every day.

Throughout history one thing remains constant: anthems about equality and freedom. When times are tough, the artists usually get to work. Musicians take the stress, struggles and strife we feel, and channel it into songs. This is how the masses begin the fight against divisive language and behavior – with music that inspires us all.

It is impossible to listen to “Love Your Own Power” and not catch Natalie Jean’s optimism that everybody can learn to be strong. Her ebullient conviction that she can convince you to “love your own power”, regardless of your situation, will lift you up.

Fierce and loud, “Love Your Own Power” is passionate celebration of not just being yourself, but a stronger version of yourself. The powerful message of self-love and self-acceptance rings true for any and every generation.

Mike Greenly’s lyrics are sure to strike a chord with every individual who cares about equality: “You’re a woman who knows that the world can be tough. There’ll be those who will say that you’re just not enough. Keep moving ahead. Love your own power. This is your time. Be who you are. Each day of your life, love your own power. Prove that you can, you can do anything just like a man. Love your own power.”

Natalie Jean’s forthright cry through Mike Greenly’s words, clearly expresses the importance of caring for and depending on yourself: loving yourself first is the most empowering thing you can do. You need to stand up for what is true and what is right – even when things feel hopeless, even when the odds seem stacked against you and you’re feeling overwhelmed.

Nothing quite helps you acknowledge your inner greatness than Natalie Jean’s power vocals on “Love Your Own Power”. This is a determined theme song for the woman who is in control of her body, her choices and her life.

“Love Your Own Power” will give you an instant confidence boost with one fired-up performance from Natalie Jean, as she and Mike Greenly, impart a lesson on accepting yourself, playing to your strengths, and not letting anybody destroy your vibe.

Born Bougain Littlejohn, in Blowing Rock, North Carolina, Bizeeee aka 4ez is back with a brand new 2019 album project, featuring the single entitled “Couple Bands Up In The Gucci Bag”. 4ez has proven to be one of the most interesting new artists during the last year. On the surface, he is a prime example of the year’s new breed of “post-future” artists, but on a meta level, 4ez is a rebel-esque grinder figure who challenges the tyrannical orthodoxy of hip-hop and society at large.

Like most interesting rappers in the modern era, 4ez’s appeal isn’t just that he’s a great emcee in a conventional sense, but it’s also the sheer visceral thrill of hearing  his melodic flows combining with glittering beats to form an intoxicatingly catchy form of new age era music.

The single “Couple Bands Up In The Gucci Bag”, delivers the aforementioned elements in bucket loads. The most striking thing about the song, is how thoroughly 21st Century it sounds. A cursory listen reveals that 4ez is an innovative artist. Even though he works within the conventions established by his peers, he is a refinement of the new school sound.

He cuts out the more annoying aspects of his contemporaries and adds a real ear for forceful hooks, as well as a colorful selection of beats that captivate. Songs like “Couple Bands Up In The Gucci Bag” showcase 4ez at his best; catchy and buoyed by a beat that is dark and soulful.

Compact and concise, with a limitless smorgasbord of sugary melodics, smooth flows and sharp introspective lyricism, the track sounds like a chill symphony in the digital age. Surfing a crescendo of shuffling hi-hats and warm keys, 4ez also leaves listeners with a relatable story – which is both an inspiration and a warning.

The reality of his world is brought to the fore; his most emotive self, sprawled across 4 minutes of revelatory music. The production crafts the perfect grooves for 4ez to channel his tale of aspiration, joy and woe, and he comes out the other side a wiser man.

On “Couple Bands Up In The Gucci Bag”, 4ez finds an outlet for his reflection and reaction, and sonically spills his thoughts in a surprisingly effective project. This is a cultivation of his honest aesthetic – it’s both a metaphoric and introspective grappling with where he was, where he aspired to be, where he is now, and where he’ll go from here.

There are many lessons to be learned from this song, regardless of what your craft or desires in life may be.  On this track, 4ez found a way to combine his usual edge with a contemplative, mellow and honest sound. The song’s simplicity will manage to reach an emotional relatability within audiences that is mostly unmatched by songs in a similar style.

Hailing from Tulsa Oklahoma, 3Mind Blight began his musical crusade in the late 90’s. The Tulsa, Oklahoma native started out crafting his skillset with Boom Bap Rap and the Grunge Rock scene. After fronting several bands and production teams, what started as a hobby soon led to a full time music career in production, instrumentation, and artistry, blending rock, rap and instrumentals. Continuing to beat the odds, both in and outside the studio, 3Mind Blight’s “1hell of a Night” marks the artist’s latest single release.

Complete with a slow and dark, mellow groove and an easy guitar progression, it tells the story of right or wrong and how good can go bad, how everything can become one goddamn mess, and how it’s just the nature of the game when you experience “1hell of a Night”. For a fitting start, 3Mind Blight’s deep gravelly voice meshes perfectly, both pitch-perfect and on-point,

Everyone listening will feel like this song was written for them specifically, because the interesting thing is, notwithstanding 3Mind Blight’s own personal narrative, that you can fit these lyrics to almost any of your own, “1hell of a Night” experiences – be it with a woman, drugs or liquor.

Be sure to treat it right, or there will always be consequences: “Sleeping with a beauty waking up to a beast, with hatred in her eyes from the pain underneath.”  The track exudes a brilliant dream-like hypnotic vibe that worms its way inside your brain.

“1hell of a Night” is a magnificent piece of music, completed in just two minutes, illustrating the artist’s ability to bring about the feelings in us that he has in himself, within a blink of an eye. It is a diversity that really makes him special, among his contemporaries.

Truthfully, with each release, 3Mind Blight gets better and better. The flows are sharper, the beats are smoother, and the narratives are smarter. There is a respectful toughness, yet sensible vulnerability about 3Mind Blight and it shines through with “1hell of a Night”. And that is why fans of this style of alternative urban rap, will love him.

3Mind Blight’s artistic demeanor shouldn’t come as a surprise; the artist doesn’t strike me as someone who has time for the casual rubbish that his contemporaries deliver. Judging by his musical catalog, he’d rather go deep on his themes, whether it’s ripping into societal hypocrisy, or intimately exploring personal issues and anecdotes, like “1hell of a Night”.

There’s never anything gimmicky about 3Mind Blight’s music; he blends genres not to be cute but to serve the fistful of terrific songs he’s written up until now. Armed with an honest persona, creative song writing and an innate ability to capture ears and audiences, 3Mind Blight’s “1hell of a Night” will leave an ear-tingling impression and stamp on the indie music world. That is why we give it 5 out of 5 stars.

The artist Michael Lewis from London UK, makes his debut with the singles “Missed Calls” and “Love Somebody” off his upcoming EP. Influenced by Jazz, Pop and Hip Hop, Lewis developed his passion by listening to artists such as Nina Simone, Marvin Gaye, J Cole, Aaliyah, Michael Jackson and many more. These songs are coming from a man deeply passionate about what he does, and this passion radiates in every note of every lyric of every beat. Lewis is ably assisted by the mesmerizing vocals of Aymee Weir, and the two are totally captivating on the mid-tempo number, “Love Somebody”.  So too is the chord progression, which is musical manna to my ears and absolutely beautiful. The insistent beat, the smooth keyboard and guitar arrangement, as well the simple and direct lyrics, are just hypnotizing.

Michael Lewis’ music has depth and meaning that we can all relate to. His voice is supple and enveloping, and in the presence of exceptionally strong songwriting, Lewis’ music keeps and holds your attention. Though “Love Somebody” purportedly has its ear on the future, Michael Lewis frequently draws on the past, most notably with a subtle melodic nod to legendary R&B and Soul tones buried inside the cool future electro-pop production. The trick of employing soft and deep laid-back vocal vibes by Lewis, perfectly complements the airy texture of Aymee Weir’s smooth pipes.

Michael Lewis one of those rare artists that actually turns out good material with distinctive vocals and no acrobatics attached. That is a rare achievement in a climate where everyone is trying to throw everything they’ve got at the wall, and hoping that something sticks.

Lewis uses modulation and restraint, doing exactly what is needed on the track, and avoiding any excess which is not in the scope of the record. This gives the track a natural, pure smoothness. Once it starts, it runs through its three and a half minutes fluently and melodically, never missing a beat.

The singer’s vocals mesh wonderfully with guest singer Aymee, and the magic is evident everywhere on the track, especially on the chorus: “And I know that you’ve been through a lot, I’m sorry. And I’m sorry. I just want to love somebody.” On the surface, it’s a love simple song, but it showcases powerful songwriting and interpreting talent.

There’s an unshakeable melody here with a prominent hook. This track is a shining moment for all involved. Between Lewis’ two debut single releases, this is arguably his best work, but it’s a question of personal taste on the listener’s behalf.

“Love Somebody” ft. Aymee Weir, definitely gives you a deep cool, yet emotional vibe when hearing it. There also seems to be some personal thoughts in here too, probably related to Michael Lewis’ own experiences. Brimming with the enigmatical stages of finding, exploring and expressing love, I recommend this to anyone who is looking for a deep, soulful listening experience for their ears and emotions.

“Hurt” is the new single by Francis MH featuring Ray Rackz. The track is taken off Francis’ new mixtape, entitled “Too Freaky, Too Soon”. The song is supported by a fresh video clip, shot and directed by Alex Sandoval. Musically, Mike Slick’s mix exudes subtlety, as the extravagant moments wax and wane, to allow Francis MH’s loquacious and melodic verses to breath. And the dude knows how to demand attention, as his rhymes carry confidence and clarity.

Francis MH capitalizes on the smooth, but banging minimalism, inherent in the track’s three minute and forty six second runtime, by contorting his vocals around the rhythm and rhymes, allowing himself to fully command the space he inhabits. It’s the perfect showcase for Francis MH’s tale of relationship intricacies, in the process cementing him as one of the premier up and coming rappers.

The track is hypnotic and unrelenting, but also intensely exhilarating in its brevity. Francis MH comes across as an incredibly impressive artist, and the listener is left with the impression that he is one who can be trusted to fully command this brand of emotional music. Everything about the construction of the song is exceptional, as if Francis MH and Ray Rackz are explicitly reminding us that they’re the best at what they do.

Check out the video of “Hurt” by Francis MH featuring Ray Rackz. It’s a piece of music that creates its own intense and unforgiving atmosphere. There’s a pure musical dopamine rush that floods the track, and it’s an absolutely beautiful sensation!

“I had an amazing time there – I got a great American style burger, saw the British punk band The Vibrators, and got a dragon tattooed on my back – all in one night,” says singer-songwriter, Jeff Marshall, of the now closed White Trash Fast Food Restaurant in Berlin. The Philadelphia, PA based artist visited Germany in 2014, and was so impacted by the venue that he entitled his latest 7 track album by the same name. Right off the bat, I’m totally loving Jeff’s skills in writing the most interesting material I’ve heard in a long time. It’s pretty hard to hear a more unpretentious and down to earth soul in the music business. Be prepared for traditional tones and timbres, as well as some unconventional soundscapes, as Jeff Marshall blends rock, blues, electronic and anything creative he can throw into the mix. The variety of styles on this album is staggering. As the album notes sustain: “There is something on the menu for you at the White Trash Fast Food Restaurant.”

How the heck anyone could conceivably combine all the twisted aspects to their musical vision in only seven tracks is surprising to say the least, but Jeff Marshall succeeds with ease. “White Trash Fast Food Restaurant” is one of those albums where every track has something unique to offer. This is the result of mixing genuine musical genius with plenty of heart and boldness. No attempt is made to pander to radio clichés or modern stylistic tendencies, if not in the use of electronics and some sampling.

The album kicks off with “Plain Like Money” which is all orchestral, as the dirty guitars kick in to support Jeff’s deep growling voice, in a song that builds in intensity and momentum. He delivers the lyrics with a truckload of passion and you can practically hear him sneer, as Jeff’s voice powerfully permeates the mix to ensure his words are heard clearly.

“Give It Up” is a mid-tempo pastiche of synth, rock and blues, with a South Asian twist. Marshall boils it all down to bare essentials and blows it up with vigor on the mic: “Cause when everything you have to give, isn’t enough, you have to find the strength inside…and give it up.”

If any singer deserves the title ‘acquired taste’, it’s Jeff Marshall, as his vocals have go from rough to, well, rougher, on the swampy blues groove of, “It’s a Secret”. And once you’ve acquired the taste you’ll be hooked by its warm abrasive tones. His voice tell a story. It laments or explains in a passionate manner. It comes from the mouth of a born storyteller.

The reggae leanings of “Relax” comes with plenty of rumble and kick, as Jeff’s gravelly voice pounds the lyrics with both grit and tenderness. “The Big Payback” rides in on a James Brown sample, as if to prove that Jeff Marshall works outside the box.

“Didn’t Pay The Rent” mixes soul and funk groove, with edgy urban rapping in a song that once again confirms how well Jeff Marshall’s rustic musical settings blend with his gravelly voice, and eclectic creativity. The title track, “White Trash Fast Food Restaurant”, emerges as a foot-stomping gumbo motif that kicks ass. It injects adrenalin into a story-line gripped by the twists and turns of existence.

White Trash Fast Food Restaurant” is the kind of album that you put on when you’re doing nothing else, and upon hearing it multiple times, lyrics and lines begin to stick out to you and when you actually hear them, they blow your mind.

It’s an album composed of intensely dramatic narratives that are complimented by dynamic instrumentals. This recording sees Jeff Marshall at the top of his game and imbued with sense of musical maturity and a serious intent of purpose.

Born in Chicoutimi Quebec, Xilax’s father died when he was just 6 months old. His mother who had barely arrived in an unknown country, Canada, had to do it alone with the help of Xilax’s grandfather and godfather. He has hardly been to school, and says that he does not feel at home because he is surrounded by people of a different color and culture.

Living as a person of mixed color, he was often caught up between both the white and black communities, which proved difficult for Xilax’s daily existence. While growing up, he often had to fight to earn respect.

Xilax is an independent rapper, singer, composer, cameraman, photographer and a marketing consultant.

Voss Soss’ career is heating up significantly, and I’ve no doubt that him reaching the proverbial mountain top, with one of his new and best releases, entitled “Heart Attack”. It’s with great angst, emotion and raw fervor that he delivers his lines on this Trap induced track. It’s almost as if he’s finally letting go of all his feelings behind his trials and tribulations through the verses. Voss’ wondrous skill vaults him into the spotlight, remaining intact through the brevity of the arrangement, as he technically rips the beat to shreds with his growling delivery.

Taking a calculated risk that fans will appreciate, Voss Soss makes sure to include plenty of doomsday, as well as cop and gangster conspiracy theories interwoven in his commentary. It feels so much like Voss has made the choice to make this music without concern of what people are expecting from him.

He just crafts his art completely from his own musings and interests and to just be in a creative space where he doesn’t have to worry about explaining his production, what he is talking about, or whatever is on his mind. He just lets it all hang out naturally.

The melody is distinct, opting for eccentric synths and peculiar pianos that fabricate feelings of outer body experiences. It’s a compelling concept for the song that comes together poetically. “Heart Attack” is brief, but an incredible expression of the Voss Soss mindset. And the level of creativity majestically evokes that mindset through his music while remaining accessible to listeners, elevating his performance artistry to new heights.

“Heart Attack” is an enhanced accumulation of the best aspects of Voss Soss past projects including his accented flow, beat selection, word association, and rapping ability.

King Femi is a Hip-Hop/Rap artist from Atlanta, GA. His latest single is “Rolex”, released via Royal Family Productions, LLC. A video for the track is also available on YouTube. The clips were shot at well-known landmarks around Atlanta, showcasing the culture of the city. On his latest single, King Femi invites listeners into his fascinating hazed-out psychedelic sound. The song incorporates a myriad of infectious lyrics onto an incredibly amped-up backdrop. The track is topped off with a beat that will surely make one feel like they are experiencing their own intoxicating trip in a hedonistic-induced world, draped in luxury and dreams.

“Rolex” perfectly represents King Femi’s uncanny ability to carefully curate each and every facet of his artistry. He gives equal attention to the aesthetic of his brand as well as the production of his track. When listening to a King Femi record, you should expect the unpredictable, as the rapper successfully integrates his innovative ideas into one clear and thrilling experience.

The artist owns and operates his own refined trap vibe, and “Rolex” with its cocksure attitude, shows how cleverly he’s honed and crafted this sonic scenario. It’s no exaggeration to say that from the opening note until the last drum beat, the listener emerges feeling they’ve been fully engaged.

King Femi is a commanding storyteller in his own right, and when he’s in the mood, he tosses his audience from one brazen, colorful lyric to the next, with descriptive ease.

Unlike many of his contemporaries, King Femi also, crucially, proves to be largely adept at self-control, allowing a natural flow between the track’s sonic peaks and valleys. So he doesn’t hit you over the head with too many bells and whistles, allowing his lyricism to get through the kaleidoscopic fusion of the sound effects.

King Femi creates music that makes your soul leave your body, and ascend into a dreamlike state. Into a world where you can achieve what you strive and fight for. In King Femi’s case, the metaphor is represented by a Rolex. You may substitute that with your own desires, but the lesson, and the craving, remains the same.

The rapper fuses psychedelic, pop, and rap into this song that results in a splash of sounds that are strikingly captivating. This leads to the bubbly synth riffs, persuasive percussion and sweet hooks on “Rolex”. Every beat, instrument, and fusion of sound, brings out the creativity in the production and King Femi’s style.

The production on the single is one of its finest qualities. Furthermore, unlike most artists who would like to utilize featured guests to the maximum, King Femi takes a different approach. There are none.

He carries this track on his own, alongside the powerful production. “Rolex” finds King Femi showing a rapper who can sound dexterous over a dizzying production and fully command attention.

With the release of his second album release “THE KING OF THE BLACK GORILLA FAMILY PART1 Mr. Mark Jones”, BIG SLAB of COMMISSION SUC shows everyone that he is constantly on the move. The album is filled with features, including 50 cent and Meek Mills. The first single off the album is “Heavy” ft. Izzacee Bandz. The artist BIG SLAB OF COMMISSION SUC is also known as S.U.C. BOSS, the head of SCREWED UP CLICK and the cousin of the late great Dj Screw. He is also the C.E.O of the COMMISSION JAM DOWN RECORDS INC in Houston, Texas.

BIG SLAB OF COMMISSION SUC bursts in on 2019 with heat and fervor on this track that mixes melody with street grit. He kicks in some trill rhymes over a slammin’ southern fried groove. BIG SLAB is a very entertaining emcee; he can be fun, but he can also get serious and throw down some lyrical depth.

Overall, the track slams from start to finish, as BIG SLAB is able to churn out a real Houston trunk popper alongside Izzacee Bandz. It goes without saying that the artist is contributing profusely to the Houston Hip Hop scene and his projects seem to all be good thus far.

BIG SLAB OF COMMISSION SUC

Like any on point artist, BIG SLAB OF COMMISSION SUC evokes feelings of adrenaline and threatening excitement, and never makes you feel like he’s just going through the motions, as many of his peers now seem to be doing. The man gives his projects vigor and urgency on his verses, allowing for the mellifluous hooks to keep the balance riding smoothly.

In another concise, frills-free show of strength, BIG SLAB has built upon the vigorous and dynamic foundation that made his first album a resounding critical success. From the jump, two different, yet complementing styles rear their heads on “Heavy” ft. Izzacee Bandz.

The live as fuck, seismic rhymes that perpetuated BIG SLAB’s debut are of course back in full force, and they’re met with an equally no-bullshit, rebel yell from the rapper, glazed over with a patina of melody in all the right places. It’s the captivating and convivial archetype for BIG SLAB’s style of rap.

The Houston artist is at the top of his lyrical game, with jaw crushing punches as he plays off Izzacee Bandz’s fresh, accessible, and consistently thrilling, melodic flow. In its astonishing scope and finesse, “Heavy” ft. Izzacee Bandz continues a tradition of greatness for the region, and serves as one of the more distinguished bright spots in an otherwise stale year for hip-hop.

Unlike a majority of new rap records, the passion that each artist puts into this project is clearly evident. BIG SLAB OF COMMISSION SUC brings the fucking fire, and Izzacee Bandz supplies the fuel. After blasting this shit on eleven, in my sound system, I’m suddenly feeling a whole lot better this morning. Check this out for yourself!

“808 Vampire” is the sign of an artist at his most complete, fully in control, and yet completely out of it, doubling down with his most distinguished batch of songs. If ever an album illustrated the diversity and gifts of its creator, this is it. But to understand and fully appreciate this master work, one must look at every ingredient accrued over dynamic, and sometimes troubled periods of time in G.E. Holliday’s life story which started out during the 90’s in Atlanta. Escaping, what he describes as, “crazy ex-girlfriends, crazed gangs, and a life pushing drugs,” Holliday set out to refocus, by leaving for college. There he caught the music bug, while graduation eluded him, his passion to create music did not. On returning to Atlanta he interned at several major recording studios and labels, taking in all he could learn. This eventually led to Holliday building his own recording studio, called Mag-Gre-Arts. This is where the artist would carve out his eclectic, cross-genre 11 track debut – “808 Vampire”.

This is an album made through a kaleidoscopic vision and alternate directions, and its production gives off the sense that G.E. Holliday set himself no boundaries or limits in its development. At least not in any linear sense. Holliday has parts and ideas everywhere, vying for a place on the album, and clearly only the strongest bits survived.

In short: “808 Vampire” is monster of an album, consisting of disparate moments of genius, where Soul, R&B, Goth, Pop, Industrial and Post-Rock co-exist in harmony. It has copious amounts of classic sounds too, and stands as a testament to G.E. Holliday’s musical diversity.

The opening track, “The Piper”, is a soulful tour-de-force that swirls with every ounce of Holliday’s personality and musical inclination. His voice slinking across the higher end of the sonic spectrum. But it’s “Heartbreakz” which signals the album’s first creative and performance apex.

Swelteringly sultry, melancholically erotic, Holliday’s vocals bake and broil within the slow-burning sizzle of the backdrop. Each song feels like a strong next step – the music’s always dramatic, and G.E. Holliday surprises with great success every couple of minutes. It’s impossible to find a bad track here.

“Lord Vanity” surges forward with a crunchy guitar and sneaky falsetto, before paving way for another album highlight – “Vampire Wedding”. The track personifies all the magic that Holliday and his Mag-Gre-Arts studio are capable of. Sexy with contrasting sound textures, gauged for maximal pleasure.

The urgent guitar drive of “Red Mink”, and the psychedelic head-nodding swirl of “Diggen-U” take us straight to the mellifluous urban groove of “Vamperella”. It’s clear that G.E. Holliday truly understands that songs can be crafted like movies, with characters, plots, twists and powerful imagery. And he uses this ploy with disarming perfection throughout the album.

“Hookerbrainz” is a musical and moral liberation of the highest order. Built on a slow club-infected beat and background chants, Holliday takes on a voyeuristic journey into the seductive twilight zone. This is followed by the baroque, chamber-pop instrumental sounds of “Mag-Gre-Arts”.

Most tantalizing of all, throughout this album, besides the performances by G.E. Holliday of course, is the profuse use of the 808’s, which add sheer weight and impulse to the proceedings. Another instrument that adds an extra dimension to this recording, is the electric six-string, which can again be savored in all its glory in on “Charlie X (Papergurl)”, and especially the brief closer, “The Wood-Oaks”.

Whether or not an eclectic album such as “808 Vampire”, is your personal thing, G.E. Holliday must be admired for his ambition, his output, his drive, and his unbelievable creative restlessness.

Anything he can think, any creative impulses that come to him, Holliday indulges in spontaneously, and without fear. Complementing his ambitious genre-fusing, is his gift for storytelling. G.E. Holliday is the type of creative that beats a new path for others to follow.

Alden Groves has used many monikers over the years, including his popular electronic alias “Evoke”. Now, however, he’s stepping forward into the spotlight under his own name with the single “Sway” (ft. Heléne). Groves draws inspiration from past emotional hardships on this project, as the title “Sway” refers to the constant rocking between emotional ups and downs while dealing with his bipolar disorder. For such a young troubled man Alden Groves displays a maturity ahead of his years on this track. Largely this comes through the inspiration fired up by reflecting his realities, and the challenging events he had to endure. However when such negative or testing experiences can be channeled in a creative fashion and given back to the world as positive energy to help people, this can be very powerful.

Turning afflicting tragedies into powerful art is one hell of a way to write verses and shows how Alden Groves has harnessed personal suffering and fears, to the point of the musical progression he has so far amassed and is continuing to show. This negative to positive theme is drawn for immediately on the track, as a tale grimly recounted.

Laced in anxiety and fear, and here to tell you something at all times, one thing the captivating and motivating “Sway” (ft. Heléne) does very well – that I feel any music should do – is take you somewhere.

The journey we depart on navigates through the appropriate segments of Alden Groves’ experiences, with each situating him in various moods and states of minds.  All of this is done through the metaphoric description of being stranded in the ocean due to a shipwreck.

An infectious energy, together with an assertive yet subtle flow rips through the verses making way for light and gleaming melodies that float you away. Groves’ commanding delivery demands your attention at all times as a listener, and as such, you are never let down – there is always a point being relayed, a moral expressed and a message being driven.

Wrapped up in a gentle but insistent EDM/Pop groove, “Sway” (ft. Heléne) finds strength in its accessibility – this will lure new supporters aplenty to Alden Groves’ lair, while simultaneously pleasing the existing fans.

This sees the track stamp its prowess as a significant single body of work, that as the title does not immediately suggest, addresses what is often considered taboo subjects. Combine this with the execution that includes a host of smoothly-laced flows, killer hooks that find many a nesting space in your head and the rich, sumptuous production, and you have quite the sizeable master work from Groves.

I don’t think there is an insufficient moment anywhere on this track – this is what they call raising the bar. One thing that is made abundantly clear throughout “Sway” (ft. Heléne), is Groves’ undeclared desire to expand and elevate his artistry. Alden Groves’ impressive and admirable creativity is strong enough to lift even the most basic sounds to thrilling heights.
