Chile Colorado: the super-tight, powerful and inventive three piece rock band from Monterey, California, have released a new video for their track Robot Baby. The track is a slightly funkier, groovier piece than their previous release, the wistful, reflective guitar/keyboard cut, Take Me Back.

Even with it’s somewhat harder edge and full band performance, the song is still sleek and smooth, with sophisticated, evocative guitar by band mainstay Ron Wright who also contributes the hypnotic, almost chant-like vocals. All of this sits atop shimmering keyboards and locked in bass and drums. There’s an interesting hint of the modern version of Deep Purple in the new song, with Wright’s vocals a little Ian Gillan-esque in tone, and his guitar work both intricate and soulful like that of Steve Morse.

The new music follows the band’s seven track debut album, Getting Restless, which dropped in 2016. Since then they had great success with last year’s bluesy rock ballad, Fast Woman’s Lovin, which featured a triumphant guest vocal from former TOTO frontman Bobby Kimball. That song burst into Spotify’s ‘Best Of Electric Blues’ playlist – no surprise as it slips from Kimball’s impassioned vocal to Wright’s slinky, stirring melodic guitar solo which he then ramps up into a flurry of scorching fretwork.

Take Me Back, meanwhile has over 200,000 views on YouTube while Robot Baby is making inroads on FM radio stations across the US. The band have also received international airplay in the UK, France and elsewhere. Showing their versatility the trio also released the hard-rockin, politically motivated song No Bull in 2017 which hit #3 on Banks Radio Australia last November.

New Cubaton hit single “No Hay Un Tike” featuring JOKER x Yumita x El Falso deliver a Trap Cubano Reggaeton party music vibe

NEW YORK, October 2018 – JOKER x Yunita x El Falso recorded the single “No Hay UnTike ” in the popular Cyborg Records studio in Havana, Cuba and it has already received airplay in Venezuela, Mexico and other Latin radio stations. With a Cubaton party vibe, the song starts with sing-along lyrics and references to the social lifestyle and reality of partying no matter the circumstance with the Cuban youth generation.

The lyrics of “No Hay Un Tike” which translates to “there is not a ticket,” is a clever mixes humor and blasé of the musicians – lead singer JOKER, the beat producer El Falso, and Yumita – who are all from the inner-city streets of Havana, Cuba and understand that despite the situation with money (“moni”), the party must go on. Clearly, the song that touches on the realities many Cuban youth – a life with limited funds, access to the best rum in the world, and blasting “Cubaton” style music with your “acere” or close friends –  the video captures the group delivering witty and bold lyrics to a hypnotic Cuban trap beat. While three artists are not new to the underground Cubaton and Cuban Reggaeton scene, this debut single is the first of many music collabs with this team that combines melodic flow and flashy style.

The video for “No Hay Un Tike” was filmed in a private location in Havana, Cuba with the background of a pool party with real Cubans of all flavors who come from the artists neighborhood Central Havana. JOKER, the Prince of Cubaton, who has an underground music following in Cuba has the women moving and shaking their hips with the bass and timba heavy Cubaton beat production. The video was recently released on YouTube and social media to capture the songs essence of a local Cuban point-of-view in a neighborhood venue. The future releases from JOKER include collaborations from popular Cuban artists in the Cubaton genre like El Negrito, El Kokito, El Yordano 23, Yumita and Gomila.

I am positive the track will take you on a beautiful musical sojourn that you will love to relish time & again. It will also introduce you to a new experience with its unique use of background bass.

“Roll on Down” is a really interesting album by The Cabin Fevers. If you like the music of the Black Crowes, the Rolling Stones and Blackbarry Smoke, this band is right for you.

The voice of Renato Terziani is a perfect mix of Soul and Rock and roll. His pronunciation of English is impeccable. Even the groove produced by the rhythm guitar is impressive. The open tunings were performed with great style and precision. This in my opinion is what makes this album truly unique and original.

“Carry On”, a refined and tidy blues reminiscent of the most alchemical ZZ Top, follows the single “Over Again”, a true radio hit. As if the Black Crowes were dancing alongside the “Georgia Satellites”. Renato’s voice and Biacco’s guitar groove perfectly together. With “Little Lady” it is impossible to stop beating your foot and move your head.

In “Fly High” you can appreciate the melodic versatility of the singer, with references to Blind Melon quite evident. “Kick on the Road” is super-song Punk-rock and roll tune and is one of my favorites on the album. “Love Song” is an elegant 90s ballad that gives thickness and balance to this work.

“Mag at School”, on the other hand, is a beautiful funky rock track, with the final triptych “Everytime”, “Fall on your Lips”, “River of Tears” reaching the top.

The songs that I prefer on this album are well played, well produced and well done. Congratulations guys!!!

LETMEGOO Records proudly presents a brand new cut from the ubiquitous Anguillian-come-New York resident Rastafarian Jahmings Maccow. How to describe this latest output from a man with thirty years of recording experience behind him?

A deep and uplifting reggae soul cut would be a start. ‘Trod it Through’ first came about during solitary sessions at Manhattan’s Rocket Studios, circa mid-to-late 80s. Throughout the following thirty years, the song found itself evolving through several bands and incarnations to finally see the light of day in all of its sagacious energy, here on LETMEGOO Records.

Maccow stands like a mound, unassailable, waxing truths as his band spins dreamlike reggae textures that whirl and curl like rising smoke. He is unafraid to challenge that which you might be inclined to ignore, to tell you that “innocent blood will have to shed” while an angelic chorus of backing singers respond “we’ve got to trod it / trod it through”. Love, life, loss and togetherness are on Maccow’s mind, beautifully executed and brought to life in a swooning reggae rock ballad

The poet’s touch is evident in the couplets that anchor in the verses, imparted with a delicacy that reveals Maccow’s lifelong dedication to the artistic path: “See love coming down the street / see love, no shoes on its feet”. Thick-skinned wisdom also springs to mind, and a desire to do justice to the large concepts that Maccow takes in his stride, both musically and philosophically.

Over his distinguished career, Maccow has cultivated somewhat of a reputation as a reggae renaissance man. Here is an artist that has been responsible for some of the deepest reggae and roots rock coming out of the East Coast; the ex-Catch-A-Fire and Enforcers man has been out as a solo artist since the late 90s, captivating audiences across the city with his soulful brand of guitar-based reggae songwriting. Reggae aficionados will be delighted to finally get a chance to hear ‘Trod it Through’, the song that has skirted the edges of Maccow’s career for three decades, shaping – and being shaped by – his vast oeuvre spanning roots, reggae and rock music.

You can already picture the blue waters of the Caribbean as the slow tide laps your feet; this is Jahmings Maccow at the top of his game.

‘Trod It Through’ is released on iTunes. In the meantime, check out Jahmings on Facebook and Twitter, or over at his website.

New York, New York – Back To The Basics best describes the new release from producer and sonic design legend 4th Disciple. 4th collaborated with New Jersey lyricist Bizz The Prince to release the EP Against The Grain which was initially going to be titled Back To Basics.

The recording process was delayed as Bizz was working on several street releases with Jersey artist Louie Ave. as 4ths production complimented various releases such as Method Mans Meth Lab, Peedi Crakk Good Life, Sean Price Imperious Rex and various other releases.

In late 2017, Bizz and 4th Disciple partnered back up and went back to the basics, of one artist one producer format. Bizz The Prince provides intelligent wordplay and lyrics that flow over melodic 4th Disciple break beats. In regards to production, sound quality, lyrics and content this is best hip hop album release of 2018.

Against The Grain consists of  five tracks including the first single The Truth, Break The Wallz featuring Wu-Tang Clans Inspectah Deck, Gunz and Butter, 10 Sex Commandments, and Jail or Heaven. Jail or Heaven narration of a inmates visions from behind the wall is a classic, the genius of 4th Disciple provided production which appears to be a conversation from a low quality correctional facility phone.

The EP flows together like motion picture. The EP Against The Grain is now available for pre-order on iTunes and Google Play and the full release will be available on 4-27-18. The lead single The Truth will be available immediately by purchasing the EP via pre-order.

Global Sounds Records/ Sonic Ministry and entertainment One distribution 2018.

Pebble Beach, California based guitarist, Ron Wright’s musical day job is holding down the electric guitar chair in his indie rock band Chile Colorado. Those who love their Smooth Jazz with a crackling edge will be grateful he’s expanded his repertoire with sizzling debut instrumental single, “Happy Land”.

Wright surrounds his fiery led melody with other blazing guitar textures for an empowering and smoothly, electrifying experience. “Happy Land” is something that every rock jazz fusion guitar lover will want to check into.

This week we were lucky enough to get a preview of his new instrumental song “Happy Land”. We were instantly impressed by his rich mellow sounds, produced by both guitar and drums.

The impressive lead style had glimpses of Van Halen-esque sounding solos, yet having Ron’s own style shining through at the same time. This would make sense as Rons influences are often described as: Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix and Eddie Van Halen.

The new song “Happy Land” would surely appeal to any rock fan, but also lend a hand to anyone keen on Jazz. In addition, it also gives an element of “easy listening”, meaning any music fan could potentially enjoy the tune regardless of their preference or taste.

Ron Wright is the guitarist from Chile Colorado. They are Monterey’s “Big Electric Band” – an ALL ORIGINAL power trio evoking the textures of the Jimi Hendrix Experience, ZZ Top, Mountain, Cream, and Thin Lizzy. Hopefully, we will be seeing a lot more solo material from Ron in the coming years.

Rayne Michael takes us to a utopian dream that channels a noble spirit with his emotional remix “Lil Boy”.

Tasos Petsas is a Greek creator of electronic music. Apart from being a Graduate of The Athens Faculty of Law, he has also studied Music and Phonetics. On December of 2015 FM Records released his first album called “Heart Of Mine (Anna)” on digital and physical, as well as a limited edition vinyl CD, which reached the #1 spot on the Greek Digital Album Chart. From that album four singles have been released, and all of them reached the #1 spot on the Greek Digital Singles and were among Europe’s top 200!

The released singles are – “Mother Of Mine (Anna)” in loving memory of his mother who passed away suffering from breast cancer, “Angel Of Mine” a trip hop opera duet with lyric soprano Manja Vlachogianni , “Friend Of Mine” remixing by Lego Boy and “Anna” with Greek American musician, Thespina Patronas.  In 2017 he released a historical music theme called “Voices (Istimpei)” which reached also the #1 spot on the Greek Digital Singles and became his fifth single in a row which entered the Euro 200 chart.

At the end of 2017 Tasos collaborated once again with Manja Vlachogianni on the Christmas Jazz ballad called “Memories” which also reached the #1 spot in Greece.

During April of 2018  FM Records released Tasos Petsas’ new project called “Libra (1975) Part One” – a six track EP which already reached the #1 spot on the Greek Digital Album Chart. The lead single is called “Michael” in loving of his father who suddenly passed away last April. “Michael” is on two versions.

The first version called “Original Edit” is a retro 80’s synthwave track, and the second called “House Edit”. This mini album has a whole 80’s retro package with upbeat and positive synthesizer-based sound tracks such as his new remix of his big hit “Mother Of Mine (Anna)” and disco groove feeling on his new track called “Libra (1975)”.

Artdayn – Home Movie: An X-Rated Synthy Ensemble with Plenty of Soul. Artdayn is the brand-new musical project by Miami based urban artist Daynel Artiles​. His fresh new synthy approach to RnB & Soul is one that I can definitely get behind. His debut track Home Movie​ is a pulsing mix of contemporary 80’s sounds narrated through unfiltered gritty lyrics that really put this Synth Pop RnB ensemble in a league of its own. Not one element of this track is understated, the thrashing, swirling chaos of the track encapsulates the essence behind the track which should probably come with its own PG warning. Artdayn started his project in 2017, each of the singles he’s brought out runs with its own elemental fury, his genre-defying sound gets mixed up every time he puts out a new track. Yet Home Movie is without doubt my all-time favorite hit produced by Artdayn. Every second of the 4:40 track is an atmospheric experience of the pure aural alchemy that has been so deftly produced. The almost haunting intro leads you into a labyrinth of complex Electronica layers which really make the listening experience a palpably sonorous experience.

After listening to Home Movie, I realized that this sensually composed masterpiece may just be the only overly X-Rated track I could really immerse myself in. With its pinch of romanticism against Artiles veracious sexuality Home Movie could only be described as stunning. The tentative pacing which is strategically placed around Artiles raunchy Human League-esque vocals is enough to get anyone hot; if the breakdowns and build up’s don’t leave you needing to catch your breath, you’re probably a little dead inside.

The orchestration that created the resonance between the Soulful and earthy vocals and the carnality of the beat stands as testament Artdayn’s bordering on genius rhythmic talent. Perhaps what I adore the most is the versatility in the vocals, he switches from a soaring vocal range to a pensive flow which really allows you to swallow the melancholy on offer through the lyrics.

Home Movie was released at the start of 2018 and has not failed to get the attention of Urban music fans. The tracks universal sound is beautifully resonant, so it should come as no surprise that Artdayn’s fans are falling over themselves to praise the South Florida artists sound.  I have no doubt that a record deal isn’t on the cards for Artdayn if he keeps putting out dope tracks to the same standard of Home Movie, the tracks perfectly polished production results in a dope hit that you’d have to be pretty broken not to appreciate.

South Florida residents may have already been introduced to Artdayn’s sound as he’s made quite the name for himself as the singing Uber driver. I mean, what better way to put your music out there than bringing your passion into your day job and dousing unsuspecting passengers to a rendition of music with infinitely more soul than you would find on the radio. If Artdayn doesn’t get signed, there is something seriously wrong with the music industry. Before watching his micro car concerts, I had no idea that Artdayn was going to be so enigmatically charming.

The singer songwriter and graphic design artist is most definitely the whole package with his inspiration to positively influence his listeners lives with his music. After checking out Home Movie, he’s most definitely made an impression with me. To check out the sublime X-Rated track head on over to SoundCloud Or you can head on over to Artdayn’s official Website to check out his earlier mixes and videos of him wowing his passengers as he takes them on a journey of pure RnB soul. You can connect with Artdayn & show your support on Facebook.

The storied history of Afro-jazz funk legends Plunky & Oneness continues with a new album, Eclecticism, to be released June 13 of this year.  As a prelude to the new album, Plunky is releasing Only You, a four-song maxi-single of Afro-mellow smooth grooves on March 13.  While his maxi-single focuses on mellow vibes, the four tracks still showcase the variety and versatility Plunky and his group have shown for more than 40 years and 25 albums.  Newness and innovation are on full display on this EP as Plunky and his son, J. Fire Branch, have produced a collection of personal songs with multiple layers of beats, sounds and meanings.                                                                                                      

Listen to samples of the Only You 4-song Maxi Single, click here:

Heres how Plunky himself describes the songs on the EP/Maxi-single:

The title tune, Only You, is a smooth groove song about your one and only love.  The tenor sax lead implies that it is a man speaking to his lover, but female background vocals make it clear that it is just as likely that a woman might sing it to hers.  Every listener can hope that if they asked their lover who makes you happy, the answer would be, Only You.  This song is my nod to Najee, Gerald Albright, Boney James, Kim Waters and all the smooth jazz saxophonists who make it mellow and funky at the same time.

Love Makes Us Better is about universal love.  The modal piano vamp on the track hearkens back to the openness of John Coltranes A Love Supreme and Pharaoh Sanders Karma; but this new song combines sequencing with live instruments, vocals and soprano sax.  The song was produced using modern hip-hop/R&B sampling techniques, instrumental improvisation and lyrics to create a nu-cosmic jazz.

The instrumental track, Word of Mouth, could have been titled Oral History or*Speaking in Tongues.  This is truly a new music construct, using voices as percussion instruments and overdubbed saxophones as a rhythm section.  This is special, acoustic Nu-Afro-beat music; mellow and danceable.  

The introspective song, Dream Safari, uses a new age soundscape and a smooth Afro-jazz groove to create a vehicle for a tenor sax excursion into dream land.  The song is cinematic, expansive and intimate.  A safari is an expedition and this is a soundtrack for a quest for wisdom, peace and love& 

These are songs for this season, and with these songs I am intimating a subtle African and cosmopolitan aesthetic, an understated and diverse Afropolitan jazz-funk music.
