The producer of hip hop instrumentals known as Mo Beatz has released his latest LP album, Mo Better Beatz Than Blues. The album contains 14 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 50 minutes. It has been proudly published on his Mo Better Beatz independent record label without the direction of the corporate music industry. A cutting edge hip hop album packed with instrumental grooves, Mo Better Beatz Than Blues from Mo Beatz is a study in hip-hop music making.

Nigerian-born Mo Beatz cites as main artistic influences Bob Marley, Fela Kuti, Quincy Jones, Michael Jackson, Prince, Stevie Wonder, John Lennon, Pete Rock, and J Dilla. His own sound on Mo Better Beatz Than Blues borrows mostly from the hip hop producers of the late eighties and mid- nineties, but Beatz’s sound is all his own. Primarily a work of minimalism and surgical precision, Mo Better… teaches that a clean beat with just a dash of melody should give any rapper more than enough to work with.

The sound of “Mo Better Beatz Than Blues” is groovy and mellow,with bass that spreads,rather than stabs and pounds.His melodies are unlikely and creative,and no beats song sounds quite like anything else one is likely to have heard.This is evidently and obviously intentional.

Speaking of his artistic aims on this album,Mo Beatz writes, “I’m an instrumental artist so my album is more about providing an emotional ‘n’ sentimental vibe to listeners when they hear it.My music sounds melodic and experimental,different from the average hip hop albums.So my message would be that you can be melodic and experimental and still make a great hip hop album without sounding like everything else on the radio!”

Mo Beatz originally released Mo Better Beatz Than Blues in 2013 to widespread critical and fan acclaim. Now newly remixed and remastered, this clutch of beats never sounded more clear, more crisp, or more dialed-in to that sweet spot every rapper shoots for. Mo Beatz started his career in hip hop in the 1990s. Disillusioned with his dependence on producers for beats and instrumentals, Beatz learned to work the boards himself.

Shortly after this move, independent artists and up and coming rappers and singers began to take notice of his hip hop experimental sounds and quickly befriended him for beats, says the artist’s current official bio. However, due to the lack of freedom, airplay, respect for the underground artists and their creativity, and the constant changes in the music industry, Mo Beatz decided to take a break from music and went on a little hiatus.

It was during this period that Beatz discovered instrumental recordings by titans of the 808s and 909s like Jay Dilla and Madlib. Mo Beatz found gratitude in their art and began to feel the need to make music again, his bio reads. He began to change his approach from a producer to more of an instrumental artist.

I love making music, says Mo Beatz. It’s a passion of mine. The money is secondary. The joy of making a song and having somebody else feel it is priceless. That’s the validation.  “Mo Better Beatz Than Blues” by Mo Beatz is available now from over 600 quality digital music retailers online worldwide.Get in early,beat fanatics.

Elix Risqué (Born Elix Poe) is an American singer-songwriter and actor. She started acting in school musicals in 2nd grade and got cast in multiple yearly productions throughout elementary, middle, and high school. As a child, Elix thoroughly enjoyed performing concerts for her family with popular songs from artists such as Britney Spears, Rihanna, Kelly Clarkson, and Christina Aguilera. Elix has been writing songs since middle school and during high school, she used a computer recording software and ended up recording music that she distributed to her friends, creating a fan base all throughout her high school career. In the summer of 2015, her mother passed away and left her a generous sum of money. After paying off obligations, Elix used some of that money to fund her first professional full-length studio album, “Champagne Problems.” The album was released on September 13, 2016. To promote the album, Elix did a few live performances around the OKC metro area. On July 13, 2017, she released her newest single “Never Wake Up.” She is currently working on her second full-length album, but is keeping the details secret.

  1. How long have you been doing music and how did you get started in the first place?

Elix Risqué: I’ve been singing since I was a child. I was always in school musicals growing up and I knew it was what I wanted to do with my life. In high school I started writing songs and recording them with this cheap software and gave them out to friends. The songs were horrible quality but it still gave me some experience.

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

Elix Risqué: I’ve always been a major Britney Spears fan and she’s still my biggest influence to this day. I’ve also always been influenced by Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Mariah Carey, and even Shania Twain, which might surprise people.

  1. Which artists are you currently listening to? And is there anyone of these that you’d like to collaborate with?

Elix Risqué: Oh gosh, there’s so many! As for new artists, I’m really into Zara Larsson and Bebe Rexha right now and I’d love to collaborate with them. I’m also really into Dua Lipa and Tove Lo. And there are so many artists in general I’d love to work with like Britney, Pink, Kesha, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Cher Lloyd, Adam Lambert, Nick Jonas, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Nicki Minaj, and Eminem, just to name a few.

  1. What are your long-term goals or career plans?

Elix Risqué: I want to make a name for myself in the music industry and be the definition of a popstar. It’s an extremely difficult thing to do, but I have the determination, passion and talent, so I’ll make it happen.

  1. How do you feel you separate yourself from other upcoming recording artists right now?

Elix Risqué: I have a very unique voice, which I can use to my advantage. It’s instantly recognizable, so I feel like that gives me a bit of an edge.

  1. Have you had any formal musical training, or are you totally self-taught?

Elix Risqué: I took choir and vocal classes all through school. But other than that, everything I do comes naturally.

  1. How do you handle naysayers, haters, and criticism in general?

Elix Risqué: I just ignore them. Unfortunately, you can’t please everyone and a lot of haters are just jealous. Nothing makes a hater angrier than someone else’s success.

  1. What do you consider a really successful or high point in your career so far?

Elix Risqué: Anytime someone messages me on social media and tells me they listen to my music and enjoy it, I feel really successful.

  1. How are your songs developed? Do you handle all the processes from composition to recording, producing and mastering, or do you collaborate with other creatives?

Elix Risqué: I work with a lot of different producers, songwriters, and engineers.

  1. More than anything else, what do you feel your listeners should get out of your music?

Elix Risqué: I want them to relate to it. If it’s an upbeat song, I want them to have fun with it. If it’s a more heartfelt song, I want them to know that someone’s there for them, no matter what they’re going through.

  1. What has been the most difficult thing you’ve had to endure in your career so far?

Elix Risqué: Feeling like I’m at a standstill. Sometimes I don’t think I’m getting anywhere in the industry and it’s definitely frustrating to not feel like you’re making progress.

  1. If you had the opportunity to change one thing about the music business, what would that be?

Elix Risqué: I’d make it to where indie artists have more of a chance to stand out. Record labels use millions of dollars to promote their artists and most indie artists have to do it all out of pocket. If I could do anything, I’d love to help even it out a bit.

  1. How do you market and manage your music career? Do you have a management team or do you control everything by yourself?

Elix Risqué: I do everything myself at the moment. I’d love to have a management team but that opportunity hasn’t shown itself yet.

  1. What does your family and your loved ones think of your artistic aspirations? Do you have their full support?

Elix Risqué: They want me to be happy doing what I love, no matter what.

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

Elix Risqué: Mainstream, pop, dance, EDM, R&B, hip-hop, club.

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

Elix Risqué: Absolutely! Social media has given us a way to reach out to our fans in a sincere and personal way that wasn’t possible even a decade ago. As for me, I’m very touch and go on certain social media apps. For instance, I love Instagram but I hate Snapchat.

  1. What is the title of your favorite song in your own music catalog, and why is it special to you?

Elix Risqué: It’s a tie between a few. “Untouchable” is one because it’s so catchy and was the most fun to record. “Every Word” is a break-up ballad and I feel like it’s my best vocal performance. “Not Alone” was written in memory of mother, who passed away a couple years ago, so it holds a special place in my heart.

  1. Are your songs focused more on personal real life experiences or imaginary concepts and what you observe around you?

Elix Risqué: A little bit of both. The more heartfelt songs are all based on personal experience. Some of the party songs are based on parties I’ve been to and some of them were what the songwriter came up with.

  1. Stuck on a desert island with the choice of only 3 albums to take with you, which would they be?

Elix Risqué: Oh, that’s a hard one. “Glory” by Britney Spears is a must. It’s her most mature work to date and is honestly criminally underrated because every song on it is a hit. “Talk That Talk” by Rihanna is another one. I love that it’s club-friendly but still has an edgy sound and I’m still addicted to it. And the last one would be “Rebel Heart” by Madonna. The songs on it are timeless and I can listen to it without skipping anything.

20 What is the one thing you will never ever be willing, or prepared to do, in your quest to sustain a successful musical career?

Elix Risqué: Anything illegal. It’s true that I would do nearly anything to make my dream come true, but if it could get me in legal trouble, it’s definitely not worth it.

“He turns my life around”, with these words, Busola Martins whets our appetite as we are led with bated breath into her new release “Pleasant Surprises” ft. Bukola Bekes.  With her ingenious use of simple questions and quotable phrases, she challenges us on a mid-tempo cliff hanger to re-access our relationship with Jesus. Precisely because Gospel thrives on its spontaneity, it has often traded lyrical sophistication for its immediacy.  This is not so with this track. Saved without being sanctimonious, and heaven-aspiring while remaining down-to-earth, when it comes to conveying ministry within her music, Busola Martins handles the load with passion and purpose.

I think the success of the song is that you get to look beyond the music, finding a story, some guide and something to lead you to a cause beyond the record, thereby making it your own, and making it personal to you. Busola brings us to and through the plea to The Lord. You can hear the passion and her intention.

Busola Martins

Busola Martins

When she sings the words: “In my life show your power / In my life show your might / In my life show your glory.” The song gives vivid hope of the power of God, to those of us that suffer every day through the challenges we have to meet. In her soaring melisma Busola sends us first class on a bullet train straight into God’s presence refusing to leave until we have had an audience with the Almighty.

While listening to “Pleasant Surprises” ft. Bukola Bekes you hear Busola’s sincerity and strong smooth voice that reaches to the core of your heart. There’s no doubt that worship is her element and this track does justice to the powerful ministry that you experience while worshipping with her.

Though Busola Martins can absolutely hold her own without the aid of special guest talent, the choice of Nigerian-born Bukola Bekes as a featured vocalist is more than a welcome asset. The two show phenomenal intuition in connecting others to the Lord with voices that resonate on all counts.

Based in Auckland, New Zealand, music and worship has been part of Busola Martins life for years. An anointed worship leader serving in the Redeemed Christian Church of God, she is also a vocalist and songwriter with a growing catalog of inspiring songs.

Music has a way of touching believers in a way that nothing else can. An inspiring, truthful and uplifting testimony sung in the name of praise, worship, and prayer, is one of the most beautiful displays of God’s power. Busola Martins is one who God has gifted with this extraordinary gift.

Jay Felicite: “758 Stories 2” – a singular statement from a singular artist http://jamsphere.com/reviews/jay-felicite-758-stories-2-singular-statement-singular-artist http://jamsphere.com/reviews/jay-felicite-758-stories-2-singular-statement-singular-artist#respond Fri, 20 Oct 2017 14:02:04 +0000 http://jamsphere.com/?p=30496 When thinking of England as a musical landscape, Dancehall may not be the first genre that pops to mind for people not in the know, but it’s there, under the surface of the streets, the thump of the drum and pop of the bass reverberating into walls, and spilling out under the doorways from dub […]

When thinking of England as a musical landscape, Dancehall may not be the first genre that pops to mind for people not in the know, but it’s there, under the surface of the streets, the thump of the drum and pop of the bass reverberating into walls, and spilling out under the doorways from dub clubs and roots bars. One of the current underground stars of the UK’s indie circuit is probably Jay Felicite (pronounced; Fay-Lee-See-Tay) is a Saint Lucian born and raised singer, songwriter, sound engineer. The resilient firebrand is making a big noise with the release of his new EP “758 Stories 2”.  At its heart the EP is a Dancehall record, but by weaving in elements of edgy urban, R&B and trap, Felicite has crafted something uniquely versatile within the simple sounding rhythms and pulsating bass.

The recording features killer hooks and irresistible melodies and are both reinforced by lyrics of such acute storytelling, they’re guaranteed to be a bright spot in your day. Right from the opening track, “Let Em Know” [Prod. Edeez] the spindly melodies balance on driving percussive frames, the kicks and ride cymbal hits positioned for maximum hip-swaying effect. The synths are sent through tight delays for that extra rubbery sheen, while Jay Felicite’s vocals whoosh overhead in waves.

The cadence of the beat, the shimmering keyboard pattern, the bass drum thump, vocal tone and lyrics on “Partner In Crime” (Feat. Lucciano), combine to successfully give the song the intended celebratory, reflective and mood lifting vibe. This track stands as a firm testament of Jay Felicite’s development, growth, versatility and maturity as an artist.

“March Dem Down” is a really energetic tune – delivered in an insistent, yet melodic way. Felicite’s composed delivery has a very ominous air due to the excellent use of tone, the low pass filter being used to great effect and the venomous lyrics that he spits throughout the song.

Jay Felicite

“Do Road” [Prod. HitsByJude] is a more relaxed song where Felicite’s style of delivery, lyrics, and melodic chorus reveal a clear intention for it to be a hit single. “Champion (Overcome)” [Prod. Reddman Bangaz] is another great track I would call an album song.

The song starts off with an absolutely beautiful piano driven intro that sounds very familiar. The artist is in an intimate and inspirational mood, while the song is a revealing track giving us a better grasp of this enigmatic performer.

This is one of my favorite tracks on the EP. “Hot Steppa Remix” (Feat. So Dee, Lil G, OD, Krazy K & BowcieTT) captivates Felicite’s influential songwriting perfectly alongside the rest of the crew.

The pulsating drumming that stays steady throughout the song, and the string chugging makes the song what it is: catchy and captivating. The satisfying synths and harmony combinations makes the lead vocals and rapping seem highlighted, and the lyrics clearer to the ear.

Overall “758 Stories 2”, is a singular statement from a singular artist that is moving his game up a level. This scruple is easily overlooked though when well placed, interesting instrumentals and deep grooves take hold, encouraging us to let go of the need to understand and simply enjoy through the expression of dance.

Cris Marshall is an American Country Music Artist raised in a musical home, the small town of Haslet, Texas. He received his first drum set from his father at the age of two and by 8 he was playing his first guitar. In his teens, and alongside his dad, Cris began performing at some of Dallas/Fort Worth’s most well-known music venues. A singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer, Cris also launched his very own home studio when he was 18, recording artists and bands all over Texas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana. However his passion for writing and performing never subsided during this time, as he continued to compose original songs. Happily married and blessed with a daughter, Cris is now focused on the release of his upcoming debut album.

I need variety in my music. To earn 5 stars, this has to happen. Almost non-stop listening to a disc because I just can’t get enough of it. This album by Cris Marshall is full of songs that you cannot get out of your head, from start to finish. Chris is a great writer and he knows a good song and how its structured mechanics work.

The fact that he is such an accomplished guitarist who lays down some hook-laden tracks helps his cause too. The performances all throughout the album, both musically and vocally, are outstanding. This is what I call, ‘HCC’ or rather “hybrid contemporary country”, folks.

It takes the best of country’s roots along with a lot of pop and rock influence and blends it all together to make Chris’ unique brand of music. Music lovers of any genre can appreciate an effort like this. This is a cohesive recording from start to finish and isn’t a record that’s just a few good songs with filler wrapped around it.

I can see this album becoming an award-winning project and at a time when artists just make the same record over and over and get people to buy and play their records, Cris Marshall strives to make something new and interesting.

Listening to this album, it becomes clear that Cris has got a canny awareness of what it takes to make a hit record in today’s musical climate. There is no doubt that on this recording, he has tapped into the source of sure-fire high rotation radio hits.

In doing so, whilst transcending most of the usual narrow range of Nashville lyrical and stylistic touchstones, he will no doubt manage to draw from a wide range of listeners. What results is a lushly produced suite of songs that hint at boundary pushing.

The music will ensure he hooks as wide an audience as possible. The clever meshing of ‘everyman’ priorities in the songs will be the key to its popularity – and it has to be said, it is an irresistible piece of country-pop crossover confection.

Watch this space for the album title, track listing, musical credits and release date, as soon as it is officially made public. In the meantime take note of the name – Cris Marshall.

Indeed, you could say that Darrell McClover aka Daryl Yahudy, a former professional athlete, is a soul singer with a warm timbre and a penchant for sublime, emotional arrangements, defining what the neo-soul genre should sound like in 2017. He is a singer with a fine voice weaving a spell on songs which are full of distinctive takes on universal topics. The album “Soulful Life Within” is almost looking at how he was, how he is and how he will be in life. The warm, evocative, impeccable playing around Daryl here ensures a timeless listen.

The album is overflowing with lush, lilting ballads and stimulating soul grooves that are flush with narratives, melodies and discernable instrumentation. All 16 tracks were written by Daryl Yahudy and he’s been blessed with a tenor and falsetto range that are equally impactful.  Daryl’s approach — applying old school templates combined with his own modern-day unique flair — demonstrates why he should flourish as an artist. This new creation is as mesmerizing and masterful as his skill set will allow.

Darrell McClover aka Daryl Yahudy

After a decade in the industry most artists hope to have figured out their brand of music with sights on releasing a project that is able to grasp the hearts of their listeners. Daryl Yahudy has been able to do just on his debut album. Without reinventing the wheel he’s able to provide an authentic feel almost effortlessly.

The album’s single, “Return for You”, sees Daryl’s supple vocals glide over the rising piano soundscape, echoing a request for complete trust. This is the album’s calling card and a perfect introduction to an album that benefits from both enthralling spoken word pieces as well as soulful crooning.

An infusion of the blueprints of his predecessors combined with his own trademark sound and style have led Daryl Yahudy to unimaginable heights on his latest opus. Standout songs like “Nothing Compares”, “Virtuous”, “Joy Of Yah”, “Beauty Within”, “Pedaling For Life” and “What’s Love”, are nearly flawless in their execution, assuring his place as one whose music comprises of both sincere love, as well as spiritual and social awareness. Though the title suggests something ethereal or nuanced, Daryl Yahudy also focuses on the tangible and direct.

Tender and beautiful moments are ever-present on this debut, and Daryl’s approach is refreshing because he, for the most part, is subtle, yet direct. Not only can he blend poetry, seduction, and consciousness flawlessly, but he doesn’t try to push those limits into the realms of throwaway pop, which steadfast music lovers will undoubtedly appreciate.

If there is anything transcendent about Daryl Yahudy, it’s that he is genuinely talented and, above all, refreshing. “Soulful Life Within”, is the type of album that can and probably will be played on repeat without wearing on any music listener’s nerves—if anything, it becomes more inspiring during each rotation.

Comparisons and contrasts aside, Daryl Yahudy is the Neo of the Neo-Soul game right now, and if he keeps doing what he’s doing, he could save us all from the Matrix that Neo-Soul is bent on becoming.

I have always been eager to pick up every piece of music John J issues because of the lyrical expertise he demonstrates in every song, and the attention to the music production and features he provides. John J has just dropped a 5 track bonus EP, entitled “Pain To Power 5 Love Letters”, which comes hot on the heels of his latest release, “Pain To Power”. Like his previous recordings, each song on this EP carries a different succinct feel and hook while the flow stays swift and acrobatic. The beats, features and subject matter again excel well above average. In a weak, saturated status of the rap industry that has succumbed to pop-filled radio hits and mainstream artists that receive tremendous backing from ghostwriters, production labels, etc., John J has beaten them at their own game.

John J

“Pain To Power 5 Love Letters”, plays like a twenty-minute shot of adrenaline, as it reverberates transcendentally through the speakers. This is only amplified by presenting to listeners some of the catchiest instrumentation and largely breakneck, infectious and amazing flows the John J has ever assembled.

It helps too, to have Breana Marin on the hooks as she is a delight to listen to, both melodic and soulful. When “Last Love Letter” kicks in, after the introductory “The 4th Date”, it is not to be taken lightly. Instead it’s a signal to strap yourself in and enjoy this vibrantly orchestrated roller coaster ride of wordplay.

The four minute and four second sonic explosion that is “Crossfire” ft. Breana Marin showcases the same solid elements of strong rhyming over an electronic groove. The work features terrific, addictive and head-nodding production, plus the scintillating Ms. Marin on the vocals. I wanted to choose this as the Ep highlight, but couldn’t because of the subsequent track.

Just how do you choose the best track between this one, and “Never Good Enough ft. Breana Marin? It’s a tough call. This guitar strummed anthem continues John J’s fiery rhyming found throughout the entirety of this recording. It also contains another highly infectious refrain from Breana.

A special word of appreciation has to be said in favor of Breana Marin. Over the years I have heard hundreds of hook singers on singles, EP’s and Albums, many of them brilliant with extremely distinctive voices. Breana beats them all hands down. She currently has to be the best hook singer in the entire universe…and many galaxies beyond too.

Her secret is that her vocal deliveries encompass everything a hook would need to make any track become an ear-worm, yet at the same time her voice is subtle and eloquent enough to never encumber the track, or take over its ownership. It’s a fine line between being impressive and being overwhelming.

Breana Marin has fine-tuned her craft to perfection, and a talented and astute rapper like John J has fully grasped the potential of her art on his tracks, thus heightening his already incredible orchestrations. Such creates the wonderful formula of the emotional, vigorous and ear-catching tunes found within “Pain To Power 5 Love Letters”, which stands as one of John J’s many signposts signaling his mastery of hip hop in all its facets.

October marks the 45th anniversary of the Bee Gees song “Please Don’t Turn Out the Lights,” and fans of the musical super group of the 1970s, have reason to be excited. The Gibb Collective is a musical tribute, and a family legacy.  On the input of Maurice’s daughter, Samantha, the children of Andy, Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb have found a way to honor their fathers by infusing new lymph  into the more than memorable Bee Gee classics of the 60’s and 70’s. And what better title for the 10-track album, than “Please Don’t Turn Out The Lights”. Though I doubt anyone ever had the idea of ‘turning out the lights’, consistently illuminating the Bee Gees’ music for many decades on end.

The Gibb Collective

The task at hand was obviously enormous. Just how do you improve perfectly cut gems? Well you can’t, you can only polish them up from time to time. So with all the love and passion in the world. The Gibb Collective set about shining up their family jewels.

The interesting thing is that the collective members never assembled in one place, instead they recorded their individual parts in places as far away as Sydney, Ohio, London and Los Angeles, with the recorded pieces then being blended together in a US production studio.

“It started when my partner Lazaro and I decided to do a cover of ‘New York Mining Disaster 1941,” says Samantha Gibb (Maurice’s daughter). “We loved the way it turned out and thought it would be really cool to do more if it. We had been wanting to do a tribute for a long time for my dad and my uncles. It started to feel like the right time so we started to reach out then we talked to everybody. Each person decided to do a take on a track that was one of their favorites. The next thing we knew we had a 10 song album”.

The album cover artwork

What ensued, is nothing short of a genuine blend of the sublime and the spectacular:  “New York Mining Disaster 1941” by Samantha Gibb and “I Started A Joke” by Robin John Gibb is breathtakingly engaging, Peta Gibbs’ delectable version of “Fool For A Night” is surprisingly eloquent, as was listening to the electro version of “Angel of Mercy” by Samantha & Adam Gibb.

There are also unexpected song choices like “I Can’t See Nobody” which was the B-side of “New York Mining Disaster 1941” back in the 60’s. Berry Gibb Rhoades’ reworking of the song is another definite album highlight.

The album has many other memorable moments, especially when the The Gibb Collective interpret the so-called lesser known tracks from the Bee Gees catalog.  In this sense, Spencer dispenses a sumptuous refurbishing of the bittersweet “Don’t Fall In Love With Me,” a track from the Bee Gees’ 1981 album Living Eyes.

Formed in 1958, The Bee Gees have sold more than 220 million records worldwide. Taking on this project would have been intimidating for just about anyone. The Gibb Collective don’t suffer this condition, probably because the primary goal of Samantha (Maurice’s daughter), Spencer and Robin-John Gibb (Robin’s sons), Stephen and Travis Gibb (Barry’s sons), Peta Gibb (Andy’s daughter), Adam Gibb (Maurice’s son) and Berry Gibb-Rhoades (the brothers younger sister), is not to sell records but to preserve and enhance a legacy.

Music is a very powerful and mystical force. It speaks to people on a much deeper level than conversation. It really reaches the soul. With his new track “Judas” ft. Fyah Sthar, John-Marc Lucid hits us with music that indeed does reach our souls, an intriguing melody, piercing lyrics and outstanding musicianship included. The new release by the Texas based Dancehall and Reggae artist is a joint venture with Fyah Sthar, and together they breathe down-to-earth authenticity, making for an airy, buoyant listening experience. Lucid is a creative mind that doesn’t bother about drawers or labels – his music explores the depths of emotions and expressive possibilities, bringing joy and danceability.

Lucid has crafted this extraordinary release setting new standards for the genre, and adding a lilting softness to his voice. Apart from the singing, the underlying music is also a piece of art on its own, with the production providing multiple layers of fascination, making this song one of several stand-out tracks in Lucid’s catalog. A mixture of instrumental elements and a clever arrangement gives the song a world-music feel, while John-Marc grants us a look through the eyes of the youth in today’s world.

And indeed, the experience is vivid, palpable in the way Lucid vocally interacts with the rhythms. Anger, hope, indignation, love – all the emotions you can think of, resonate in his voice. John-Marc Lucid’s rise from a no-name to a seriously to-be-reckoned-with underground artist has been a swift one.

While some artists love to talk about being innovative and even believe they are, while they actually aren’t, others just do it big time and don’t even brag about it. One such artist is John-Marc Lucid. The result is an organic, authentic and extremely enjoyable sound.

Lucid’s impressive vocal range shows an understanding of structure and melody that repeatedly affect, not just infect, with hooks and turns that actually mean something substantial, and still lodge in the brain, just the same. John-Marc offers yet another great enrichment for all lovers of dancehall.

Nothing can be missed here to enable the track to move straight forward on the ranking lists. With no signs of dilution, this is a full sound aroma. Almost like a mission statement, the song “Judas” ft. Fyah Sthar, in a strong, yet humble spirit, makes clear once and for all that the Danchall/Reggae music of John-Marc Lucid is a serious thing, and this might just be another warning of more serious music to come.

Meaningful lyrics, amazing songwriting, superb heart-warming yet angry sound, musical teamwork, everything is so perfect in this track. Such a gorgeous and refined melody and philosophical lyrics is worth being remembered for all of the current generation. The guitarist uses swampy resonating sound so beautifully and the drummer plays simple but tight groove, with every drum fill-in is on the sweet musical spots. The bassist backs up the music stably as the boys sing the vocals with conviction. This is one of my current desert Island #1’s in the Roger Cole & Paul Barrere catalog. Yes, the track “Let It Go” is performed by a rock duo. Two proficient and passionate musicians who share the activities of a regular 4-piece band.

The credits read – Vocals (Roger Cole/Paul Barrere), Guitar (Paul Barrere), Bass, and Drums (Roger Cole). The track was Produced by Roger Cole/Paul Barrere and Mixed & Mastered by Roger Cole. This is a hauntingly awesome, rich and deep, philosophical song, simple and complex at the same time.

Roger Cole & Paul Barrere have always been a duo that speaks the truth when it comes to real life. It’s not that they have a lack of imagination, but they stay true to the society that we live in. They allow the listener to join in the emotions of real life drama, the disappointments, the struggle to find love and happiness, the laughable situations, the delicate theme of death, and the rare occurrences when we are at peace with ourselves.

I find them to be one of the sources in which you can reflect with you own personal experiences and sometimes draw a conclusion, even if it’s not to our liking. Ranging from somewhat heavy guitars and fast paced tempos, to slow meandering bass lines that seem like the chains of despair will eventually win out, Roger Cole & Paul Barrere’ music has commentated on most areas of human life during these past few years.

There are not many other bands, of course who currently have similar musical feel, but it there was, they would probably lack a certain natural charisma of humility that only comes from many years of toiling the craft.

If you’re looking for another Roger Cole & Paul Barrere record that combines musical inspiration and travelling emotions, with grounded ideals, I would sincerely recommend “Let It Go”. You’ll play it over and over if you’re at all like me. Especially the portentous intro and opening verse, bathed in deep growling guitars and moody bass basslines:

“When the world starts driving you crazy / Finding it hard to think / Let It Go / Everything just goes hazy and your heads pounding to the brink / What’s left to do, there’s nothing left to do / Let It Go”

The track’s keystone is the irascible guitar lines, but the lyrics, melody, harmony, and additional music make an incredibly gorgeous song. The futility of human existence plays a key part in the song, and the lyrics reinforce the notion of life’s limits which pervades this exquisite, if moody, masterpiece.

The single, “Let It Go”, releases officially on the 9th of November 2017

Markus Scott: “Live Life With No Regrets” – equal parts infectious and well-crafted http://jamsphere.com/newreleases/markus-scott-live-life-no-regrets-equal-parts-infectious-well-crafted http://jamsphere.com/newreleases/markus-scott-live-life-no-regrets-equal-parts-infectious-well-crafted#respond Mon, 16 Oct 2017 15:01:10 +0000 http://jamsphere.com/?p=30436 Born in New York City, Markus Scott grew up in humble surroundings, and his family were always on the move resulting in him constantly transferring schools.

Born in New York City, Markus Scott grew up in humble surroundings, and his family were always on the move resulting in him constantly transferring schools. He excelled at reading and writing poetry, before discovering that he could rap when he won a freestyle battle with a signed artist at a house party in Harlem. He soon learned to DJ too, and with his first check from summer youth, Markus went to a pawn shop and brought a laptop. He then brought a DAW, and microphone from Guitar Center and began researching how to mix and edit his vocals. He dropped his first track in 2015 and then went on to release his 6 track EP “Graduation Night” in June 2016 on his graduation day. In August of the same year, Markus released the single “Swervin” alongside a music video that started to create a buzz.

Which brings us right up to the summer of 2017, and Markus Scott’s latest full-length 14 track project, “Live Life With No Regrets”. The album is the embodiment of all the challenges and overcoming of hardships Markus has gone through to finally achieve this recording which should well and truly set him on his way.

Scott does two things well; flip his lyrics into potential contemporary hits that maintain a simple charm and wonder, as well as proficiently rap with catchy tone that rivals other artists in the same lane. As an album seeking to tell a story, this does it well.

“Live Life With No Regrets” is essentially an amalgamation of influences from differing styles of Hip-hop music into a cohesive piece. As Markus explained previously on the release of his single “Bump & Grind”,  his music has undergone a change from his earlier recordings which focused more on conscious material before he discovered that this generation seeked-out something different.

So he switched his style and attitude to move up his buzz into trendier rap circles. Whether or not you enjoy Markus Scott’s personality, or current all-round aesthetic, his music proves to be equal parts infectious and well-crafted, qualities that many artists making similar music lack.

It is clear from the intro that Markus’ confidence is sky high on this project. He effortlessly flips between vivid reflection and unapologetic flexing throughout several instrumental changes. This coupled with the atmospheric production help to make the whole listening experience cinematic, yet easy on the ear. This album is highly polished and targeted to the masses, with star performances coming in on, “Grindin”, “Hopped Out”, “Know My Name”, “Flipped”, “Your Girl” ft Joes Mill Vill and “Letter”.

Much of Markus’ considerable talents as a rapper are here on full display. The result is an album that works hard at leaving the impression that this young man is working hard to create his future within this genre. “Live Life With No Regrets” is ambitious and lavish, with Markus Scott determined to seize a destiny he believes is his for the taking.

“Sooner or Later”, the new release by independent Canadian Country songstress, Lynne Taylor Donovan, is the third single from the Nashville sessions that produced her hugely successful Euro-UK #1 hit “Strong One” and the follow-up European #2 hit “Am I Dreaming”. The reigning queen of indie country music has a knack for finding a way into the hearts of her global fan base. “Sooner or Later” has a warm and deep intention, reflecting Donovan’s eloquent and versatile tidings, showcasing her country gravitas, and a swirling pool of rich technique and tender ability.

A careful sensory indulgence is heard in the track, shedding some light on sun-kissed guitar plucks, airy drum brush filters and her larger than life vocal capacity drawn into an intimate setting, as Lynne explores the multiple facets of unrequited devotion:

“He’ll take your heart, too far too fast. Give you his word then he’ll take it back, sooner or later,” or  “He’ll look straight at you with those angel eyes, laugh like the devil while he’s telling you lies, sooner or later,” as she confirms, “ I’m a woman who knows what I’m talking about. You might not want to hear it, but you’re gonna find out, sooner or later.”

This is a song that works, and it works well on all levels. Lynne Taylor Donovan’s genuine charm has been spell casting many for a few years now with her signature musical filings enthralling the die-hard country music devotee and non.

“Sooner or Later” continues this custom, unearthing more emotional material from the artist, as Lynne gives a great vocal performance on a track that is fully developed lyrically. Donovan is again expanding her sonic palette here with some shimmering production and a very modern country edge, but she’s not stepping outside of her fans’ comfort zone.

Lynne Taylor Donovan and her production team have managed to integrate the song, and vocal performance with a fully-realized backdrop of instrumentation, making “Sooner or Later” a richly nuanced sonic tapestry that matches the mood of the story-line. It’s hard to imagine anyone else breathing as much life into this track. Artistic freedom has never sounded so good.

Musician, songwriter and guitarist extraordinaire, Odd-Arne Jacobsen has worked with most of the leading artists in his home country of Norway, in both theatre and music, and has also presented his craft internationally. He has had his own television show in Russia, as well as a solo concert at the Moscow International Jazz Festival, and has toured the USA, Mexico, Russia, France, China, Kuwait, Scotland, and Japan. In 1990 he undertook a solo concert of his own compositions in New York, becoming the first Norwegian guitar player ever to hold a solo concert in Weil Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall. Apart from his own solo projects, Odd-Arne has also performed with world famous guitarist Jan Akkerman from the legendary progressive rock band Focus.

Odd-Arne Jacobsen has recently released his brand new 5 track recording for solo guitar, “While I Was Crossing The Bridge”, out on OAJ Records. There are only a couple of other guitarists who have impacted my heart and soul to the degree that Odd-Arne music does: they go by the names of Pat Metheny, Wes Montgomery and Andres Segovia.

Odd-Arne music is a gift to the world – there for anyone, anywhere, at any time – that is given with pure love. He’s a rare musical genius who decided to make the most and give the most from his talents.

With that said, “While I Was Crossing The Bridge” is another very tasty Odd-Arne Jacobsen recording. For one, the solo guitar arrangements on “41”, “Besame Mucho”, “Cherokee”, “All Things You Are” and “Flow My Tears” seem both creative, melodic and hauntingly beautiful. Secondly, his use of light and shade, adds a dimension to the music that takes it beyond category.

Odd-Arne also makes use of tremendous sound texture without overburdening the ear. He seems to know exactly what he is looking for in a musical piece, finds it, and then executes it perfectly. Combine that with his overall compositional, arranging and interpretive brilliance, and we have an artist that we can only hope will inspire other musicians to go beyond category and genre and simply create beauty straight from the heart.

On “While I Was Crossing The Bridge”, Odd-Arne Jacobsen shows us how he systematically deconstructs, scrutinizes and rebuilds a track to become a very personal expression, probably unlike you’ve heard anybody else in jazz and classical guitar music do.

Particularly impressive are his creative workings on Consuelo Velázquez’s “Besame Mucho”, Ray Noble’s “Cherokee”, and “Flow My Tears” – a song that John Dowland originally composed for the Lute. Mix equal parts of Odd-Arne Jacobsen’s interpretive creativity and his performance skills, and this is what you get…an absolutely brilliant piece from beginning to end.

JENNIFER HOPE LAUNCHES DOWNLOAD TO DONATE FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN TO BENEFIT LINKIN PARK’S MUSIC FOR RELIEF CHARITY

Singer-Songwriter Jennifer Hope, has released her cover version of Linkin Park’s “My December” to raise awareness, and contributions for Music for Relief’s One More Light Fund in memory of Chester Bennington. The track is available for download until October 27, 2017 at GoFundfMe. A one dollar donation is all that is required to receive a download code, but any additional amount is appreciated and your extended generosity can further help many in their time of need. All donations go to the charity through the PayPal giving fund.

My December cover artwork

“Hybrid Theory”, Linkin Park’s album, shocked the masses by making good nu metal. This is of course subjective, but it’s definitely one of the most unique and successful albums from the genre at the time. Linkin Park did what most nu metal bands didn’t – they focused on hooks and melodies, not just pure anger.

Not that it was completely void of anger. The album did succeed for a reason though. These songs were memorable and relatable. But hidden in amongst the nu-metal songs on the album, the song “My December” appeared as a bonus track.

The bonus track version gave us Linkin Park’s earliest sign of maturity. This song was incredible with the pure unforced and restrained emotion in Chester Bennington’s voice against the soft instrumentation and production. In fact the song shone because it focused on Chester’s emotive vocal style instead of Mike’s furious verses. And when does briefly Mike rap on this song he sounds in pain.

It was that sonic shift in sound that promised something amazing for the band’s future. Jennifer Hope takes that promise and builds on it in the most poignant and personal way. She generates a powerful harmonic resonance with a sense of horizontal stream and an emotional melodic core that screams loss.

Chester Bennington

The original version alluded strongly towards solitude and loneliness, to a point of desperation, hence, “…give it all away, just to have someone to go to…,” is almost like saying, having anyone is better than this hollow, lonely feeling. It’s better to share happiness with someone than to be alone with it. Jennifer twists the slant and tone of the track towards the departed Chester. So when she gets to the part that goes: “This is my December. These are my snow covered dreams. This is me pretending. This is all I need”, the feeling is one of loss and the resignation of having to come to terms with that emotion.

As always, Jennifer Hope’s vocal delivery is impeccable as she conveys her heartfelt rendition of “My December” without the overblown melodrama that one would expect from a tribute song. Part of the answer can be found in the fact that Jennifer had already been planning a cover version of this track back in December 2016. “I always thought that this bonus track on the Hybrid Theory was underplayed, explained Jennifer. “After various delays, my cover version was completed on July 20, 2017. I heard about the passing of Chester Bennington shortly thereafter.” The rest of what makes this such an immensely discernible cover, can be found in the beautifully tailored instrumental – the dominant acoustic piano, the deeply resonating strings – and of course that  marvelous voice that reeks of honesty and integrity.

On his brand new mixtape, “The Time Machine” hosted by DJ Infamous, Phoenix, AZ based artist RealTalk, delivers his visceral lifetime narratives over remixes of hits taken from the 70s, 80s and 90s, including samples by Bobby Womack, Rose Royce, Michael Jackson, Prince, Xscape , Aaliyah, Pink Floyd, and more. The mixtape delivers 12 grooving tracks with beats by a handful of skillful producers, from Dj Eric Swain, Rehab Beats, to BigMattBeatz, Kaleem Beats and MCK, as well as By 318tae who has the lion’s share with 4 tracks.

The only feature is The Last Poets on the opening track, “Niggas”. If you are already familiar with RealTalk’s past works, then you know that he delivers in all categories of a recording. There is depth and variety to each song, which is supremely supported by excellent lyrics and production.

This is an artist who is contributing to his genre in a positive way and it shows once again in this album. As soon as you hit play on the opening track, which is, “Niggas” ft. The Last Poets, you hear rhythmic Afro-styled percussion, chanting, singing, and a high energy preacher type sermon – some real artistic, cultural and political vibes come through here.

This isn’t that hip-hop mixtape intro where the artist comes out rapping a mile a minute about his personal prowess. That’s because RealTalk is not trying to prove he’s an amazing rapper, he’s trying to prove he can make an amazing mixtape.

The insistence with authenticity is a familiar pose in hip-hop. For RealTalk, though, life isn’t just a source of borrowed credibility; it’s where this storyteller goes to absorb details that for others might merely be glimpsed from afar. “The Time Machine” is thick with the residue of these immersions. Even when he’s drawing on his own experiences he exercises an observational acuity that suggests how much noticing he’s been doing. Real-life subjects are addressed, providing insight into his worldliness.

All throughout the mixtape, RealTalk did things his way. Rapping over remixes of past hits, might seem like a risk in a market where nobody even remembers last month’s top 40 placings. It is a risk only real artists are capable of taking to express their artistry.

But as soon as you bump into the triumvirate of standout tracks – “Patience” (Prod. by Justwritebeats), “Anymore” (Prod. by Rehab Beats) and “Diana” (Prod. by BigMattBeatz), you realize the indefectible reasoning behind that risk. Whether or not you recognize these songs make no difference to their sublime execution and desired effect on the listener.

If anything, knowing the samples only enhance your listening experience. The heartfelt mellow production on “Down With You” (Prod.By 318tae) only complements the power of the relatable lyrics, as RealTalk digs in with his inspiring flow. It’s tremendous track for its personal details, provided by a true storyteller.

Rapping with an intense demeanor, RealTalk is in his ultimate prime on “Got To Change” (Prod.By 318tae) which is, quite possibly, one of his best tracks lyrically. The production is reminiscent of old school hip-hop and will have heads nodding in agreement as the words propel into the brain.

The hard-knock-powered production mixed with melodic vocals in the background, is captivating on “It Happened” (Prod. by 318tae), which closes the mixtape with yet another standout. “The Time Machine” is RealTalk’s truest, most personal, artistic statement to date, and is easily his best release.

London-based French music and video producer, Charly Sauret aka Woochia, is influenced by artists such as Tool, Heretik and Beethoven, which is a fairly good indication of the vast creative spectrum his music is composed within. Expect also, to find a wide variety of blended sounds to accompany his arrangements – like the tones of acoustic instruments (guitars or didgeridoo) with tones usually used for meditation (singing bowls, different types of throat singing) mixed with driving percussion and pumping synth bass lines, to deliver what is described as soft and melodic techno music.

A former student of Musicology at the University of Evry, and 10 years of composing computer music behind him, Woochia has worked with artists such as, Richard “Kory” Rivereau (Beyond the Dust, Rise) and Ebde (Ebde, Otter and Snake). His latest release, is the 6 track EP entitled “Travels”.

The recording instantly feels like a quintessential, well-crafted eclectic concoction, every bit as vital and masterfully mottled as his previously released genre-bridging output to date. Briefly running through his catalog, I find “Travels” to be Woochia’s most cohesive offering to date.

According to Woochia, all the tracks on this EP were composed or conceived in trains, buses and coaches while travelling between and around London and Paris. “These songs capture the feeling of being on the road, following the drift of the mind in its own imagination while the landscapes go by, behind the window,” he explains. For Woochia, a carefully-wielded air of familiarity – be it tempted via a balmy bass swell or a picked acoustic guitar pattern – can fare as potent as the fiercest sonic progression.

Guided by his own production – “Travels” finds Woochia not simply hitting the sweet spot between referencing his past experiences whilst keeping two eyes on the horizon, but conquering it. From the likes of the mid-tempo, melodic-conjuring of “Bus” and the acoustic guitar and percussive thrust of “Train”, to the rhythmic and haunting “Soil” and the brooding “Tunnel”, as well as the highlight “Ritual Walking” – a cinematic instrumental, where a thickly layered brass and string backdrop supports playful guitars and a hand-clap beat.

Expanding upon the blueprints of his instrumental craft, there are some real seismic peaks in Woochia’s approach here that seals the deal, as he excavates acquainted territory to reveal real forward motion and a slew of new-fangled ideas. The subtle impetus and melody that drives “Flow” forth is tangible.

Woochia’s acoustic and synth-drenched set-ups make for an unusual combination, one that delivers alluring, subtle melodies and rich atmospheric textures. It’s electronic rendered in an unusually accessible and articulate way. There’s enough energy and ingenuity to hold interest throughout, alongside Woochia’s ability to gently shift tones and textures while allowing them to coalesce lucidly.

In “Travels”, the artist displays a development in sound and execution that proves his vistas and stealth are as captivating as his desire to keep exploring new sounds and possibilities. Certainly, Woochia is happy to mix the colors from the wide palette he is holding.  It will also enable this London-based Frenchman to build a respectable reputation over the years, one best appreciated by those who tend to admire ambition and experimentation.

Mortinus: “Pyramid” – it’s a staggeringly beautiful concoction of ambience http://jamsphere.com/newreleases/mortinus-pyramid-staggeringly-beautiful-concoction-ambience http://jamsphere.com/newreleases/mortinus-pyramid-staggeringly-beautiful-concoction-ambience#respond Tue, 10 Oct 2017 17:57:42 +0000 http://jamsphere.com/?p=30374 Of all popular genres, electronica has always been one of the more globally conscious, crossing oceans and transcending cultural boundaries in a wordless communication of rhythm and melody.

Of all popular genres, electronica has always been one of the more globally conscious, crossing oceans and transcending cultural boundaries in a wordless communication of rhythm and melody. Tempering the experimental tilt of his previous material with groovier, more graceful rhythms and an ear for ethnic melody unmatched by many in the ambient crowd, Mortinus is back with his brand new double-sided release, entitled “Pyramid”. An EP containing two tracks – “Yellow Pencil” and “Gold Pencil”. Danish electronic music producer Mortinus has a Danish father and a half Greenlandic and Danish mother, while he says that there are also traces of German ancestry in his family genealogy. This amalgamation of ethnicities comes through strongly in his music, except his sounds seem to be drawn more from Middle Eastern and Oriental influences than Nordic or Teutonic flavors.

The record maintains a special aura: largely rhythmic and intricately textured, it’s a staggeringly beautiful concoction of ambience, and synth tones, colored throughout by the captivating percussive sounds. The result is one of his best sets yet.

The tracks’ perfect pacing, delicate intricacy and pioneering production style ensures it always steers safely clear of the chill-out room predictability which has badly aged so much of the ambient canon. Indeed, it’s a brilliantly complimentary merging of sounds and rhythms.

With ambient music you always have to be careful that it doesn’t become wafty new-age music. It can disappear into the ether if not done properly, but Mortinus is an eccentric producer who has little problem avoiding that pitfall. Despite deriving its magnificence from the music’s cumulative impact, both tracks particularly endure in the memory.

In the past, Mortinus has delivered critically acclaimed and boundary-pushing productions, and here he continues to do so with “Pyramid”. This is not a recording to simply commute to work to. These tracks demand to be experienced at full blast.

No matter how impressive Mortinus’ ever-morphing soup of textures, samples and motifs become there is still something unescapably mysterious about the whole affair. However, considering that the core theme of “Pyramid”, and hence, both “Yellow Pencil” and “Gold Pencil”, sounds like the melding of technological possibilities of science fiction with the mysterious civilizations of the Middle East’s distant past, its retro-futuristic vibe feels entirely appropriate. Ultimately this is an immersive, imaginative journey into the unknown.

“Pyramid” is not beat-less, isolationist background music, but a set of ambient tracks with powerful grooves, masterful instrumentation, and priceless hooks and melodies that help set it ahead of the pack.

Every now and again a part of these tracks will grab your attention and astound you, this is the way ambient music is meant to be enjoyed, its popular music, but not as we know it. In fact, it is not pop music, ambient has always been closer to classical than the ever popular verse-chorus-verse that dominates people’s fascination with music.

AnandL: “Chasing Fame” ft.

I like AnandL, I really do. I find something uniquely appealing in his voice that appeals to a sense that other R&B artists of the modern age simply don’t seem to meet.  Anand Lakshminarayan aka AnandL, is an alumnus of UC Berkeley, who graduated with a degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, but that doesn’t change the fact that he’s a solid musician with strong musical ambition. “Chasing Fame” ft. LUVKUSH is the latest track released by AnandL and to be quite honest, I’m not sure if it is his best recording, considering that the others are just as good, with slightly differing slants in sound and style. That being said “Chasing Fame” offers a number of splendid moments and an all-round interesting R&B arrangement.

AnandL quickly settles into the comfort zone he has established over his last couple of songs. It’s a good thing, in that he allows his emotive voice to soar while he generates a real kind of genuine soul in the sound. The track combines pleasant call and response type vocal harmonies together with a throbbing beat.

I have always looked back to during the late 90s and early 00s with a certain degree of fondness. I have a small amount of nostalgia for the music that dominated the charts during this period, mainly due to the brilliance of some producers like The Neptunes and Timbaland.

“Chasing Fame” sees AnandL unite with LUVKUSH to deliver a track bursting with a seductive groove and a smooth thumping rhythm, reminiscent of those carefree 90s and early 00s. Nothing here is as immediate as AnandL’s previous track, “Read Receipt”.

Instead “Chasing Fame” is filled with an intricate melody and a hypnotic groove that aurally seduces the listener into submission. With its delicate synth notes and steady hand claps, its scrumptious sound-pads and slow, bottomless bass, AnandL wonderfully constructs a track that slowly works it’s way underneath your skin.

The voices are in fine form too, with the soulful vocals elegantly sweeping over these slow burning bars. It’s the singers’ versatility, as well as the production, that keeps “Chasing Fame” sounding fresh and enjoyable.

AnandL succeeds in being utterly convincing, utilizing his rich, inviting voice to great effect. It’s an infectious track that once again highlights the artist’s inventiveness, as well as his ability to command a track – irrespective of who he shares it with.

What’s remarkable is that a part of the song’s charm lies in the fact that it sounds like the artists are having fun in the studio. This infectious, positive harmony comes shining right through “Chasing Fame” ft. LUVKUSH.

Marcus Alexander is a Puerto Rican Hip hop artist, actor, voiceover talent and event host from Chicago, IL. He has had many of his songs played on Jamie Foxx’s Sirius XM Radio Station “The Foxxhole”, and his last mixtape “#ShareThePositivity” was hosted by Jamie Foxx’s Dj, DJ MicahPhoneChecka. The entertainer, who is signed to the Desanti Talent Agency in Chicago, has acted in 13 Independent Films since 2014. He has overcome many obstacles along the way and shares that growth throughout his creative endeavors, describing his music as “lyrical therapy”. Marcus who has also been noted for his mature dress code on stage, has aptly titled his new album “Suited Up Vol.1”.

For the last few years, hip-hop has been overrun by the mumble, with nearly all of its biggest stars basically unintelligible to the casual ear. Fetty Wap, Young Thug, Gucci Mane, Future, and Rich Homie Quan are all proponents of a style of rap which is about 80 percent vowel sounds.

In some cases it’s known that lean—the codeine-based cocktail favored by many of these artists—makes you slur your words. On the other hand it’s easy to assume that this poor diction is just a way of fudging half-baked lyrics with no meaning. Whatever the debate, you can keep Marcus Alexander out of the discussion.

This dude has a clear, concise and masterful control of the spoken word – translated, that means you can understand every word that he says on this brand new album. In a recent scientific study on who has the largest vocabulary in the game. New York data analyst and coder Matt Daniels found the answer – Aesop Rock comes out with the biggest lexicon in hip-hop, with 7,392 unique words, Aesop’s closest competition is GZA with 6,426 words.

It’s early days yet, and I haven’t even counted the unique words on this album, but just listening to Alexander, you have the sensation of a rapper who understands the importance of lyrics. Which brings us to the ongoing debate of old school lyrical hip hop vs new school beat-dominated rap.

In this optic Marcus Alexander is decidedly old school, which is always a breath of fresh air in the current scene, where producers are becoming more important that rappers. Marcus puts the record straight, as he matches, and surpasses each beat, bar for bar on “Suited Up Vol.1”.

The energy and elegance of his style is evident from the very first track “Control”. A delivery that’s insistent and loud, but never shouted or in your face. And it gets even better on “All For Show”, where Marcus’ flow is metered and paced to perfection, switching up and down to match the message.

“Basic Rappers” leans on a thumping beat and a shimmering keyboard line delivered with an anthemic urgency, and is closely followed by the compelling beat on “The Gambler”, yet in both instances its Marcus Alexander’s vocal inflections and tones that dominate these tracks.

By track number 4, I’m impressed by another factor – Marcus never overstays his welcome, with all tracks staying well within the 3 minute mark, some just making it to 2 minutes. That reflects a powerful ability to withhold superfluous information – not a trait many rappers can claim to have.

From “Here We Go Again”, to “Hover High” and “Sperm Donor”, Marcus stays within his usual pair of poles: the detail-oriented old school rapper and the veritable modern-day entertainer. Some artists pull off crossover appeal without compromising artistic integrity.

Marcus Alexander evidently, is capable of being one of those artists too, and he proves it on “Battle Cry” as he measures his talents with a current hook-filled styled beat, enriched by a stunning male vocal – a really tough call for any rapper to match in terms of auditory impact. Needless to say Marcus comes up trumps again!
