“Ketamer01B (simm’ a MAFIA)” is a track off the 2019 EP “Ketamer” by Italian DJ/Producer Doc Ketamer.

Doc Ketamer

Today’s EDM scene is at the height of its commercial success. Everybody wants to be a DJ or Producer now, and pop music, more or less, equals Electronic music. On his latest single, Doc Ketamer, who has been in the game for two decades gives us his authentic European flavored electro-jam blend. The track is victorious and uplifting, as the music pumps into your bloodstream.

Doc Ketamer brings us back to what we all loved about electro. He seems to have given us the original formula that was first unveiled many years ago, while breaching into funk territory and revealing some modern tricks along the way. In some ways similar to the adventures of Daft Punk or Justice, on this track, Doc Ketamer proves to be a technical wizard with an immaculate grasp on how this style of electro works.

“Ketamer01B (simm’ a MAFIA)” is characterized by aggressive pacing and an almost dizzying amount of variation. Overall, it is a well-rounded musical experience that is consistently engaging and innovative. It is a track that compels your attention at every moment. Doc Ketamer accomplishes this feat by using distinctive sounds and continuously varying his hooks.

Pat Rossi is a self-taught multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, singer and producer. He is also the founder and front-man of the popular Canadian Rock band The Falling. Rossi, whose acclaimed songwriting skills led him to perform with Bon Jovi after winning the XM/Serious Satellite Radio Songwriting Competition, has now set his sights on being a solo artist. The artist who has worked with, and performed alongside names such as, 3 Doors Down, Gilby Clark of Guns N Roses, Jonas and The Massive Attraction, among others, brings to the table his latest single, “Let you Go”, via the RedJam Records indie label.

The minute you press play on the single, you hear Pat Rossi’s voice dangling above this pristine and radio-ready tune — and instantly know it’s him. There’s an irrevocable immediacy to Pat Rossi.

It’s obvious from the get-go that he’s a talented musician and performer. Overflowing with bravado, his singing has a magnificent range to it. At times, he can be gentle, at others more dynamically powerfully, or fully melodramatic when necessary. Either way, he is always caught up in the moment of his songs.

Not to be simply bundled into the alternative rock category, Rossi’s catchy songwriting alone proves he’s in a league of his own. As rock sees a slow and painful death, his sound keeps the nostalgic core aspects of the genre, but navigates all the modern pop music-making delicacies. He embellishes “Let you Go” with impressive vocal and instrumental décor.

This latest piece of solo work, shows that he’s not afraid to push the boundaries of his music. The track has everything that you could have hoped for from Pat Rossi, and so much more. In fact – with soulful lyrics, a rhythm and melody that comes right from the heart, and a wide range of elements and influences – this might even be his best work to date – in or outside of any collective experiences.

It certainly is his most accessible, and potentially able to penetrate a vast music market. Again, Part of what makes Pat Rossi so brilliant to listen to is his songwriting. He’s able to translate the most incredible feelings into words and phrases, and weave them together to create a relatable, touching story.

It’s a gift to be able to compose meaningful lyrics as eloquently as Rossi does, and then be able to sing them with equal fervor and technical skill. Not only is that gift in every moment of “Let you Go”, but Rossi has expanded upon it, making the song as catchy as hell.

The lyrics serve as the heart and soul of the song, but it’s the intricate and lively melody that really makes the song stand out. The tune carries a certain weight and charm to it that makes you fall in love instantly. You’ll find yourself singing and jamming along to every word of this song.

The actual instrumental gives the song a lot of depth, and Rossi uses elements and effects that highlight the melody while at the same time keeping the rhythm front and center. In the end, “Let you Go” is a product of not only a life time of experiences, but a lifetime of doing what Pat Rossi loves. There is a passion in everything that he does, and it’s never shown quite as much as it does in this solo effort.

Malynda Hale is an award winning singer, songwriter, actress and host of social justice podcast We Need To Talk. Malynda Hale grew up in Santa Barbara, CA singing in the church. While Santa Barbara may have been a beautiful picture perfect life for some, Malynda remembers times of feeling singled out and out of place for being one of few dark-skin African-American women in an otherwise beach blonde town. Her solace and love of music took her to Azusa Pacific U. where she took on the challenging program of Opera training in the music department. The program included studies in acting, stage performance and movement.

Malynda then moved to New York where she discovered the vibrant theater scene and exercised her musical theater chops before letting the craft take her to Chicago where she met John Volk an entertainment attorney who would later become her husband and biggest fan. The two later moved to Los Angeles where they both climbed professionally in their respective fields. Malynda found voice for her experiences with race and societal issues by becoming one of the most followed social influencers and podcast host of #WeNeedToTalk, a live panel discussion she created in 2018 to bring people together on major headlining social topics.

Her latest album, The One, is social activist Sean King meets the pure sounds of Sara Bareilles. Malynda has already gained nominations for 2019 Best Pop Artist and Best Pop EP.

  1. Tell us how you got started making music seriously? 

Malynda Hale:  Music has always been a huge part of my life but I started really taking it seriously when I was in college. I put together a band and started doing local shows. Once I graduated from college I knew this is what I wanted my full time career to be and I’m very grateful that I’ve been able to make this my full time career.

  1. Who were your first and strongest musical influences that you can remember?

Malynda Hale: Growing up it was always Whitney Houston. The way she could captivate an audience with her voice and the way she told a story through her singing was so magical to me. I knew that I wanted to have that effect on people. As I got older my influences grew and I begin listening to Audra McDonald, Heather Headley, India Arie, Sara Bareilles and Gavin DeGraw. I’ve been influenced by a lot of different vocalists because music is such a huge part of my life.

  1. If I was to turn on your media player right now, which artists/songs would I see on your recently played list? 

Malynda Hale:  Currently a lot of Christian and Gospel artists! Since I’m a worship leader at my church in Los Angeles I’m constantly listening to music for services. I’ve also been listening to Broadway and Musical theatre because I’ve missed performing in musical theatre shows! My playlists change often!

  1. What do you feel are the key elements in your music that should resonate with listeners? 

Malynda Hale:  I think the fact that I’ve chosen to use music as a form of social change is what will resonate with listeners the most. Music is a universal language and social justice is a huge part of my life so being able to intertwine the two has been very beneficial for me.

  1. How do you think your formal training best helps you in your career, and would you advise young artists to follow this route? 

Malynda Hale:  I think being trained musically has definitely helped me sustain my voice. I rarely ever get tired after performances and I can record in the studio for a long time. I’m very grateful for the music education I received. I highly recommend training in your chosen craft because it will only help you be that much better in the long run.

  1. Do you ever write a song with current musical trends or listener satisfaction in mind, or how strict are you with performing different genres and styles?

Malynda Hale:  I use to, but I realized that in order for me to feel happy and genuine I had to write from my heart and not focus on what others want. Being authentic is way more important to me than fitting into what is currently popular.

  1. Could you describe your creative processes? How do start, and go about shaping ideas into a completed song?

Malynda Hale:  It really varies from song to song. Sometimes I come up with a melody first then add a chord progression later and sometimes it’s the opposite. Sometimes I start free styling lyrics and melody while playing piano. I really just depends on the mood I’m in or what type of song I’m trying to accomplish.

  1. If someone has never heard your music, which keywords would you personally use to describe your overall sound and style? 

Malynda Hale: Great question. I think I would describe it as soulful, honest, and musical. It’s a good mix of Pop, Soul, and Singer Songwriter. I truly think I have a song for everyone.

  1. What has been the most difficult thing you’ve had to endure in your career or life so far, and how did you overcome the event?

Malynda Hale:  Self-doubt is still something that cripples me often but I’m really working on getting past that and learning to just be proud of who I am, and what I have.

  1. What would you consider a successful, proud or significant point in your career so far? 

Malynda Hale:  There’s a few! But this year I was blessed to be able to open for Smokey Robinson at the Mid-State fair. It was such a validating experience. I also recently sang the national anthem at the California Democratic convention and it was a huge honor.

  1. What is the best piece of advice regarding the music business that you actually followed so far, and what is the advice you didn’t follow, but now know for sure that you should have?

Malynda Hale:  The advice I did follow was to never give up. So many times I have wanted to but I would be disappointed with myself if I did. Advice I should have followed was to not let my hunger outweigh my intuition. A lot of things and people I didn’t need to get involved in or with and it set me back a bit. But I’ve learned to have better judgement.

  1. How do you handle criticism and/or naysayers in general? Is it something you pay attention to, or simply ignore?

Malynda Hale:  I do pay attention and I’m extremely sensitive! But it just honestly makes me work harder because I always want to improve myself or try to win someone over.

  1. Which aspects of being an independent artist excites you most and which aspects discourages you most?

Malynda Hale:  I like having control over my career and choices but sometimes it gets really exhausting handling everything and it can be very lonely at times.

  1. What is your relationship with visual media? Do you think videos are important for your music, and do have a specific video clip you would like to recommend that fans watch to find out more about your craft?

Malynda Hale: I think anytime you can enhance your storytelling with a visual it makes the message that much more powerful. That’s why I love doing music videos. I would recommend people watch the music video for my song Story, it’s really touching and gives you a glimpse into the lives and stories of homeless people.

  1. In general, do you consider the Internet and all of the social media platforms as fundamental in building a career in music today, and what is your personal relationship with the new technology at hand?

Malynda Hale: I think everyone has a love hate relationship with social media, but I do think without it, it would be difficult to reach a broader audience. I personally love having connections with fans and people through social media but it can become an addiction and sometimes you just have to learn to take a break.

  1. For most artists, originality is first preceded by a phase of learning and, often, emulating others. What was this like for you? How would you describe your own development as an artist and music maker, and the transition towards your own style?

Malynda Hale: It’s definitely been a long journey. I started out trying to conform, then trying to be different then I finally realized who I was and have settled into that. Like I mentioned before, being authentic and honest is way more important to me than trying to fit in. I think I’ve grown from someone who just wanted to do feel good love songs, to someone that makes music in order to make people thing. Coupling my love for music and my passion for social justice has truly been the best step for me.

  1. Creative work in studio environment, or interaction with a live audience? Which of these two do you ultimately prefer and why? 

Malynda Hale: It really varies! There’s a benefit to both but I think if I had to pick, interacting with a live audience really gives me life and brings me joy.

  1. Do you have a personal favorite track in your catalog that has a specific backstory and/or message and meaning very dear to you?

Malynda Hale: We Run is by far my most precious song. It’s the most vulnerable I’ve been in my writing because the message is so dear to me. It was written specifically for the Black Lives matter movement but it really encompasses my experience as a black woman in America.

  1. What do you find most rewarding about what you do?

Malynda Hale:  Connecting with people. There is truly nothing like it in the world.

  1. Do you have a specific vision or goal that you would like to achieve in the near future?

Malynda Hale: Oh there’s so many!  But I think having a song of mine be the theme song for a new TV show is definitely a bucket list item. Also touring as an opening act for an artist that I love.

The emerging young rapper introduces himself to the world with a confrontational, attention-grabbing track. One of the most exciting young voices emerging on the international scene, Morish is ready to make himself known, and his debut single “Better Than Me,” is the perfect introduction to the young artist.

“You will never find nobody better than me,” Morish repeats throughout the song. Addressing a former lover who’s wronged him, he makes a convincing case, taking his heartbreak and turning it into a vengeful send-off. “I wrote you many songs, but this is the last one,” he concludes, triumphantly moving past a toxic situation. It’s a message that almost anyone can relate to.

Accompanied by a stylish music video, “Better Than Me,” shows that Morish is just as comfortable on camera as he is behind the mic. With his charismatic presence and lyrical prowess, he should become a fixture on the hip hop scene for years to come. “Better Than Me” is available everywhere now.

MORE ABOUT: The notion that ‘true sacrifice is born out of love’ guides Morish through every aspect of his life, from music to relationships and everything in between. Born into a family of Sri Lankan refugee parents who worked tirelessly to overcome their struggles, Windisch-raised Morish was quick to develop empathy, compassion and gratitude, and it shows in his music. Positive vibes are a hallmark feature of Morish’s brand of Hip Hop, and encompasses everything from his lyrics, flow, rhythm, speed, and melodies.

For Morish, his motifs stem from a desire to open the doorways of conversation to deeper topics, and often finds himself leaning into subjects that others might not have the courage to talk about. Each song conveys a specific emotion, covering the spectrum of human emotion — everything from anger and sadness to gratitude and love.

Hip Hop has always been about having something to say, and for Morish, he communicates from the heart, as he recites tales of redemption, learning, and collectively moving forward as a species. Ultimately, his goal is to put passion and intellect at the forefront of everything he does, as he believes they are the most powerful weapons we have as a society.

Morish has been actively involved with music from the age of 16. In 2018, he published his first music video for the single ‘Grateful’, which received significant media attention and was notably featured in Aargauerzeitung.ch.

Today, he is gearing up to release his debut album, which is scheduled for 2020. Guided by Morish’s principles, this body of work will see him continue to address societal problems and bring light to change through positivity. Further release details to follow soon.

YellaCatt’s latest single debut album “Super Power Pussy”. Introduces one of the finest new female talents I’ve heard in a long time. I say new, because she’s new to me. ‘She’ is of course none other than Daniella White aka YellaCatt. A painter who has created her own successful headdress atelier – “The Plumed Serpent’’. Daniella is also sound healer, reiki master, and clairvoyant. So she wears many hats, which all seem to fit her perfectly well. Her approach to song writing is fresh and intelligent, while her performances exude an energy that is captivating. I’m not sure if she has a background in theatrics, but it comes through, resulting in a well-crafted musical arrangements – the electronic production is tight, the singing is fantastic, and the addition of visuals makes for a glorious and stimulating musical experience.

YellaCatt’s performance is also something to watch, for she is the type of performer who has tremendous charisma and commands attention in a beguiling and unassuming way. If you have a look at her video of “Super Power Pussy”, you’ll know what I mean. I love her style, it is so different and I could listen to this track and watch the video clip repeatedly.

It has often been a case of style over substance when it comes to modern pop music, but this is not the case with YellaCatt as she smartly balances the two. Whilst sexy and alluring on the outside, this song talks about empowerment and self-respect.

“Super Power Pussy” has all the elements you could want from a pop song, with the edgy production and YellaCatt’s powerful vocal combining to create a rushing, infectious chorus. Daniella’s vocal delivery comes packed with an emotional weight which has to do with both technique and expression.

Countering the slower moments are the smoky hooks which dig much deeper than you’d expect. Since YellaCatt is yet another addition to the electro-pop craze, comparisons are certain to be made. Thankfully though, this single is not just a kitchen sink musical and vocal extravaganza.

YellaCatt clearly knows how to construct a pop piece and proves it on this track, which relies on melody, narrative and the electrifying atmosphere above anything else. It is also a great example of story-telling talent, which is used to good effect. Daniella takes every single ounce of her experiences and infuses them into her music.

It results in one hell of a theatrical roller-coaster ride on “Super Power Pussy” that holds attention from beginning to end. The tracks has a definitive sound, yet is diverse enough to satisfy almost any listener. Its cleverly written lyrics shine all through the track.

Those willing to immerse themselves in YellaCatt’s world will be immensely rewarded by this catchy, consistent and powerful release. If she can maintain the quality of the music she’s making, she’s going to have lots of fans following her every musical cue. YellaCatt is just about ready to swiftly rise through the musical ranks with her alluring personality and powerful performances.

Romajee is an American Artist who composes and produces his own music. Even though his music is considered to be in the hip hop genre, he has a peculiar style that is signed with his Latin vibe. With artist like J Balvin, Maluma, and Bad Bunny emerging into the mainstream charts, it’s no doubt that Romajee’s music is on the way to that level. Romajee, has always been a singer and rapper since the age of 6. He has just released his album “Romajee” available in all digital platforms.

At a time when rap seems sometimes to be drifting aimlessly, lingering in the doldrums, along comes Romajee. It is fair to say that with his distinctive Latin-Rap blend he does rock the boat. At times it’s enough to get lost in his syrupy and bouncing vocals while at other times his music is perfect for speaker slapping. Each song has its own idiosyncratic ability to somehow brighten the mood or make the listener look deeper into lyrics. Even Romajee narratives work as they encompasses the listener with just the right amount of voyeurism.

One thing that always impresses me with these new crop of hip-hop and crossover artists is the infectious energy that each one brings to the table. On “Romajee”, the young artist implements a wide variety of voices and styles. His versatility is quite impressive, as he switches up his flows multiple times.  Time and time again, throughout this recording that seems to be one of his lasting strengths. The beats hit just right, the choruses comes in strong, and Romajee puts actual work into the verses. In a relative sense, he presents a sort of family-friendliness in his music that his peers lack.

The album is well tied together and has a unified sound, each song bringing its own unique feel to the recording. Romajee proves that he is efficient in aiming for a vibe in his songs and achieving it through both words and music.

There’s no easy way to approach the topic of abusive relationships. And yet it’s such an alarmingly common theme today. Abuse doesn’t always have to mean physical abuse where the victim is left bruised and bloody. In fact, the more insidious and less noticed abuse is the emotional and mental kind. It’s so easy to let that kind of abuse slip by because there usually aren’t any physical signs. Sometimes love is such a powerful force that we’re willing to go through so much pain just to be with the one we love.

“Why Do You Stay” is a haunting song about a woman who’s trapped in an abusive relationship, superbly executed by Reggae artist, Peter Runks ” The Rock”. “If he loves you then why does he hurt you?” asks Peter.

From an outside perspective, toxic relationships don’t make any sense. Why would anyone stay with someone who lessens, abuses, and makes them suffer? This is the message Peter Runks’ heartfelt performance desperately tries to get across to the victim. The soulful tone and melody of the song goes hand in hand with the realization of toxic love.

Peter’s voice is grieved, and as such afflicting on the listener, as he pleads his case: “How long will you let this continue girl? He speaks to you in so much rage and anger,” questions Peter. This song shows how the relationship is dangerous, and that it is the moment to make a change, gather the strength to face the abuser, and leave.

Peter Runks’ measured, emotion-filled tones are in perfect order and the lyrical material is out of the top drawer. The influence of R&B vocalists is evident in his rocksteady strains, his clear delivery means the conscious messages of “Why Do You Stay” get across easily, his voice simply affecting.

Combining uptight keys and Roots horns, plus Runk’s vocal being at times semi-spoken and relaxed, and at others incendiary, the slow-burning beat cooks up an irresistible recipe. The track becomes more addictive, bar after bar, and has quality stamped all over it. Some of the strength of this album comes not only from Runks’ voice and the sheer power of the steady rhythm, but also from the production.

Reggae and Soul collide in inspirational bliss within the very effective musical structure presented here, as Peter describes how difficult it is to walk away from abusive relationships. More than a struggle with someone else, it’s a struggle within the victims themselves. Many artists, have described the many sides of this struggle, few have done it with such raw honesty as Runks.

Peter Runks is a rare talent and “Why Do You Stay”, manages to bottle some of that lightening effectively. Tawanto Saunders A.k.A Peter Runks, has a powerful resonance and an impressive control of his vibrato. If this is your intro to the artist born on the Island of Nassau, Bahamas, you have tons more to discover, but this is a great starting point for any listener.

Domestic Violence is a global epidemic. Listen to “Why Do You Stay” and help spread the word. Download your copy today!

Ozaka Bondage is an energizing indie-electro-pop band from Frankfurt on Main that will motivate you to climb that mountain, ask that girl out, or start that revolution you always wanted. They is nothing short of a bombastic bunch of talented musicians who smoke on their instruments like no one’s business. The accompanying video clip proves it with nothing hidden from view. The groove is infectious, the musicianship is on fire, and the audio mix sparkles.

“Tiny Giants” hits all the right buttons for me. Peaks and valleys in all the right places – even in the solos. Everything builds wonderfully – from the rhythm section of Vincent Master (Vocals, Bass) and Volker Kehl (Drums), to the embellishing flavors of Vakhtang Kharebava (Guitar) and Robin Schwarzfeld (Keyboard).  Without forgetting the resonant horns of guest players Quico (Trombone) and Moritz (Trumpet). Backing vocals are enhanced by Niko Huber and Selenia Gulino/Luana.

Of course superb musicianship wouldn’t mean anything if the tune wasn’t great, which it is. These guys are making some special music. The idea here is that everything is fluid, and that everything is always moving, hence they pack a mighty rhythmic punch.

“Tiny Giants” is a colorful, richly textured arrangement that makes effective use of Ozaka Bondage’s arsenal of instruments and vocals, ensuring that an exotic, other worldly feel remains throughout, even in the most energetic moments. If you’re a musician, you’re going to feel like heaven just fell down on your ears, and you discovered a world full of new musical possibilities. If on the other hand, you’re just a casual listener…you’ll experience the exact same feeling of elation!

Song Lyrics:

Sometimes we think we fall in love

In strobe filled clubs and crazy black-out nights.

Lights are dimmed and they deceive our eyes,

But we will never know until we try.

Yeah sometimes it happens that we can feel the love.

We are tiny giants we are forged in the stars.

Sometimes the night is full of stars,

When we get bored and head out to the bars.

We look around and try to find

Another giant that takes us as we are.

Yeah sometimes it happens that we can feel the love,

We are tiny giants we are forged in the stars.

With one EP and a few single song releases already on her resume singer and songwriter, Madison McWilliams has garnered over a million views on YouTube and over 1.5 million streams on playlists with her edgy stylings. Now Madison is showing her evolution from blossoming artist to a force to be reckoned with. Her new song and accompanying video for “Hurt Me” is out now.

For her new musical vision, she joined forces with songwriter Lisa Scinta and Adam Pallin aka 1-900, record producer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. “I can’t wait to share this new chapter of my music. I wrote “Hurt Me” with Lisa Scinta and Adam Pallin, collaborators who helped solidify my new sound. “Hurt Me” is a song about moving on. It tells a story of trying to get revenge and realizing that hurting someone else only causes you more pain.” Explains Madison

Recently legendary songwriter, Billy Steinberg (Madonna, Whitney Houston, Cyndi Lauper), recognized Madison as the “One To Watch” in his 2019 interview with Live Nation.

From Austin, TX, she began singing and playing piano at a young age, then studying and performing Italian opera and musical theatre throughout her school years. She’s spent her formative years writing, recording and honing her craft. Between sharpening her musical abilities, she continues to devour art of all forms.

Madison also hopes to use her platform to create positive change. She is an official Make-A-Wish ambassador and wrote her song “Fighter” as a tribute to the Make-A-Wish Children. She headlined Make A Wish’s World Wish Day in 2017 and Macy’s BELIEVE Campaign and Annual Wish Night in 2018.

She is an official spokesperson for the Art of Kindness campaign, which is partnered with Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation and she plans to continue with her ongoing efforts to support HAAM – Health Alliance for Austin Musicians, who provides access to affordable healthcare for Austin’s low-income working musicians.

With “Hurt Me” the young artist expands creatively and showcases her deep, expressive vocals as she delivers the words with a poise and an emotional poignancy that belie her years.

Pops Jr. is an emcee who is obsessed with originality. With every verse he tries to push the limit of rap as we know it. The follow up to what’s been dubbed a project “full of soon-to-be certified classic underground tracks,” New Bag 2 is upon us!

Pops Jr. states that even though he grew up in the nineties, many of his huge influences comes by way of soul artistes from the 70s. At the age of 5 years old his father “Pop Heavenly” aka POPS, put him and his 4 older brothers in a rap group called the Heavenly Boyz. The group traveled coast to coast performing wherever their Pops could get a gig. No matter how much he steered his boys right the baby of the family had different plans.

At 16 Pops Jr. caught a murder case. “I was young and aggressive which led me to take a life early” says Pops Jr. His intent was only to rob but his aggression took it too far. “That’s when it all changed,” says Pops Jr. He thought his rap dreams were over. But prison ended up giving him the strength he needed. He did 11 years straight and was released at 27 with an insane passion.

He changed his name to Pops Jr in honor of his father POPS. “My dad’s legacy being honored means the world to me,” says Pops Jr. On July the 3rd Pops Jr. unveiled his album, “New Bag”, to the world. Now he is coming with New Bag 2!

The Samhain Hot Hails From The Brooklyn Streets of Canarsie. Influenced By Some Of The Greatest Rappers & Singers Of All Time, From Jay Z to Michael Jackson He Breaches Musical Genres To Blending Every Musical Style Imaginable.

  1. Tell us something about how you got started making music?

The Samhain Hot: I started trying to write songs when I was like 7 years old but didn’t really get anywhere with writing songs until I was 14 & started recording at a studio. I wrote a whole rap song every day in junior high school.

  1. Who were your first and strongest musical influences that you can remember?

The Samhain Hot: the first & strongest musical influence is Michael Jackson. Around when I was in elementary I got into Michael Jackson heavy. My family always had Michael Jackson records & video tapes. Every kid in every class I went to knew me as the One who likes Michael Jackson lol. That Guy MJ was out of this world with his Talent. Then later on in Junior High I got into Jay Z Heavy. Everything was Jay Z & Rocafella. Then I started listening to everything from Bone Thugs N Harmony to Ja Rule. Prince, Soft Cell, Busta Rhymes, B.G. and all the Cash Money Millionaires. Motley Crue. I bought all of these Artists & more Albums. My collection is heavy

  1. If I was to turn on your media player right now, which artists/songs would I see on your recently played list?

The Samhain Hot:  Currently I haven’t been uploading anything on my Library lol. I got Lazy & started listening to music on YouTube Music. But in my Library I have the latest Soft Cell singles. Birdman & Juvenile “Just Another Gangsta” Album & Vince Neil “Tattoos & Tequila” Album.

  1. What do you feel are the key elements in your music that should resonate with listeners?

The Samhain Hot: My Music is different. It’s like I’m Fuzing Musical genres. They can hear the Hip-Hop also the R&B, the Pop, The Rock, The Soul, the Electronic Dance etc. from Rapping & singing at the same time. The horror core elements. & producing my own music the songs come from my Soul.

  1. What do you think mainly separates you from the massive crowd of artists emerging right now on platforms all over the web?

The Samhain Hot:  I’m older than the younger generation which has a similar style. I’m spitting lyrics not mumbling. Talking about things that’ll make you say “whoa!” Lol on some Eminem Bizarre styles

  1. Do you ever write a song with current trends or pure listener satisfaction in mind, or do you only compose what comes from within your natural emotions and mindset?

The Samhain Hot:  I never made a song with current trends. I compose stories that come from within. Whatever my minds brings forth. It comes naturally. It’s all me from my emotions

  1. What is your process when writing, recording and producing your music? Do you collaborate with others or outsource any of these tasks?

The Samhain Hot: When I write, record & produce I do everything alone. I don’t want or need anyone around. I’m in the Zone. The exemption being working on a collaboration with someone I know personally.

  1. If someone has never heard your music, which keywords would you personally use to describe your overall sound and style?

The Samhain Hot:  Hot! Lol. Different. People don’t even know what to Call they just say it’s different and it’s the future sound. They might say Demonic toward certain songs. I can’t really thing of any keywords.

  1. What has been the most difficult thing you’ve had to endure in your career or life so far, and how did you overcome the event?

The Samhain Hot:  Most difficult thing I had to Endure? Hmm. I can’t really say. I been cruising through life getting Lucky breaks. Never had to really go through anything difficult. When I was 7 my maternal grandmother died. That hit hard at a young age because I was close to her but eventually with reading scriptures I look forward to seeing her in the resurrection.

  1. What would you consider a successful, proud or significant point in your career so far?

The Samhain Hot:  I haven’t had anything successful in my career yet. In high school I won the Contest for entering a rap song in the Canarsie High School year book. Funny thing is I didn’t know it was a Contest and thought it was whoever handed the lyrics in first. So I wrote it in the classroom right after the announcement and handed it end when the bell rang. The people in the office were saying “damn that was fast!..I hope you know this doesn’t mean you won it’s a contest. We have to wait for other contestants.” But you know I won anyway hahaha. I am proud that I was finally able to Focus and Write & Produce my own album. Time has been running and I thought it might never happen after a while.

  1. Is there anything you would change one thing about how the music business works right now, or you completely happy with the current situation and digital platforms?

The Samhain Hot: I come from the era of Physical CD’s. Where you can look at the booklet and see the Pictures & read the credits & Thank You’s. I’ve come to accept Digital platforms. It’s not all so bad it certain ways. But it seems the artists are always getting the back end of deals. Spotify & Instagram want their cut of everything and they have too much power. We are too dependent on using them. And the major labels are in bed with Instagram & Spotify. And what will happen if these platforms cease to exist with our content on them? We have to pay to be distributed. Pay for everything we need to Promote & they want percentages of whatever you make. I can’t make anything with these streams. There has to be a better but I don’t see it happening. It is what it is.

  1. How do you handle criticism and/or haters in general? Is it something you pay attention to, or simply ignore?

The Samhain Hot: Sometimes I might freeze up and think about what they are saying. But most of the time I’m very confident in my skills and abilities so I will for the most part ignore. But no one really says anything bad against my craft. They have to know I am talented and they can’t even get pass that lol. I’m always with my Fiancé Lucy she supports me tells me what she thinks about every song I make. I’m thankful for her

  1. Which aspects of being an independent artist excites you most and which aspects discourages you most?

The Samhain Hot: I kind of Love it because I see the difference in the Major Labels now. They don’t have that big power that they use to have. They don’t just sign anyone and put up big budgets & then you end up in a bad contract and broke just because you wanted to be famous. The Major labels are declined and with the new technology I can cut out the middle man for the most part we don’t need them. I own all my music & publishing and no label can tell me what to do with my music. So now Major labels sit back and watch independent artist struggle to make a name for their self. Then when they start getting a buzz these labels want to come in and take over and take money out your pocket. And then for what? To do the same thing for you that you was doing for yourself? I rather be independent but get help from Major artists who can just put me on their platform and then let me sore on my own

  1. What is your relationship with visual media? Do you think videos are important for your music, and do have a video clip you would like to recommend that fans watch?

The Samhain Hot:  Oh Yea I love making music videos. I grew up on MTV & BET. I have videos for my Old mixtapes and currently 2 videos for the songs “Brooklyn (Be The Place)” & “Skeleton” off my album “Mother It’s Raining Red. They are on YouTube

  1. In general, do you consider Internet and all the social media platforms as fundamental in building a career in music today, and what is your personal relationship with all the new technology at hand?

The Samhain Hot: Yes it in a way it would seem that it allows us to have a platform and be independent. But as I said before Social Media & these platforms are starting to have too much power and control what content we are allowed to share. They are in bed with these Labels trying to hold us Artist back from what we deserve.

  1. Whats your view on the role and function of music as political, cultural and/or social vehicles and do you try and affront any of these themes in your work, or are you purely interested in music as an expression of your artistry and entertainment?

The Samhain Hot: for the most part I use music just in an entertaining way. But in the songs “Head Bussa” & “Shape Shifters (Bless The Children)” I brought topics about Corrupt Governments & the safety of Our Children. And the song “The Lost Children (Suicide Interlude)” I talked about Suicide with children.

  1. Do you only create and work in a studio environment, or do you also find time to perform live? And which of these two do you ultimately prefer and why?

The Samhain Hot:  I create & work anywhere from going to work my regular “9-5” (Music ain’t paying the bills lol) and at home. I travel with my studio equipment so I can whip up ideas and lay down tracks anywhere. But live performing I still haven’t got around to that yet. Seems like that barrier is hard to break at the moment.

  1. Do you have a recent favorite track in your catalog that has a specific backstory and/or message and meaning very dear to you?

The Samhain Hot: My favorite song on my album is “Skeleton”. It plays on the topic of death that so much of us have to worry about but no one seems to discuss. Death is all around us. I threw the Horrorcore in there with some biblical references and that song just came to life with a bang. The production that came out of me! I still can’t believe I made that beat! Hahahah

  1. Could you tell us something about your latest project?

The Samhain Hot: My Debut Album “Mother It’s Raining Red” is available on all digital platforms. No psychical copes at the moment. It is made of a musical body of work that consist of 18 songs written & produced by myself with no features. It’s mixed of rap with singing. Hip Hop Pop Rock R&B etc. I don’t think this is something anyone has ever heard.

  1. What do you find most rewarding about what you do? And do you have a specific vision or goal that you would like to achieve in the near future?

The Samhain Hot: I find it rewarding after creating these masterpieces. And being able to distribute them. I hope one day I can have a superstar platform so I can change the world with this music.

“Make Bank” is the fresh new single from OAO Kool of Scar Lyfe Entertainment! It’s available for streaming and download on all music platforms! “Make Bank” is the first single for the 2020 album “Tha “Breeze”.

From a city with one of the highest murder rates in the United States – Pine Bluff, Arkansas – OAO Kool portrays living in his environment through music. When he was 20 years old, he opened his first business and vowed to never work for anyone ever again.

He started his own local record label Scar Lyfe Entertainment and sparked a movement in his community with his hustle. By throwing shows he cut out the middleman and created business opportunities for other local artists as well as giving them a place to showcase their music.

While he is not known for having swag, the music speaks for itself with his lyrical compositions. After having kids, he lost focus on music and took a 6 year hiatus from the game. But now he’s back! Better and stronger!

The artist formerly known as Kool Carl is now known as OAO Kool, which means One And Only Kool!
