FRONTMAN JACOB CADE’S ‘ACOUSTIC HANG WITH JACOB FROM THE BRKN’ WILL LIVE STREAM VIA THE BANDS INSTAGRAM AND FACEBOOK THROUGH THE END OF APRIL AT 6PM PST/7PM MST/9PM EST

THE BRKN recently released their debut EP No. 3 via Right Brain Music Group/Ingrooves. Their new video for their song “Broke” has garnered over 100 views in just two weeks.

Since the band’s spring tours have been cancelled due to the Coronavirus, frontman Jacob Cade will be live streaming acoustic sessions every Tuesday through April via the band’s Facebook and Instagram. Tune in at 6PM PST/7PM MST/9PM EST at https://instagram.com/thebrkn or https://facebook.com/thebrkn and #BeatTheVirusWithTheBRKN.

“We’re all broken inside,” says Cade. “Every human being has a broken part. That’s what defines you as a person. It heals, but it never really goes away. It makes you think and act the way you do now; I think that’s a beautiful thing. Everyone in this generation tries to be perfect, but we proudly encompass this brokenness.”

“They have proven themselves as radical and unique artists whose rock music kicks down the door and demands to be listened to”Crave The Sound

The BRKN’s songs are filled with hard hitting rhythms, intense riffs and lyrics that will leave you chanting. The band formed in early 2019 and spent most of the year touring and recording. The songs from their debut No. 3 have tallied over 123k Spotify streams to date.

“Their songs are sure to get stuck in your head and have you singing along. Every song on the debut has the band taking chances and essentially going for it. Kicking off the unruly energy with intense and resounding guitar riffs and lyrical subject matter with meaning.”I’m Music Magazine

BLUEOX RELEASES SONG AND ACCOMPANYING VIDEO FOR “BLACK STAR ROAD”

Jersey City psych-rock duo BLUEOX releases now song and accompanying video for their song “Black Star Road.” Stream or purchase it here: https://ditto.fm/black-star-road

BLUEOX channels the spirit of 70’s-era Pink Floyd and My Morning Jacket, with a splash of afrobeat tendencies. The band debuted two original songs “Walk Tall” and “Panic Attack” in 2019 and have more single song releases leading to their debut EP release this Summer.

They recently paid tribute to the Grateful Dead with the release of their video version of “Brokedown Palace.” The song is available at all streaming platforms here: https://ampl.ink/8ojQj

With haunting melodies and bold lyrics, singer Kieran Sullivan (Cecelia Celeste) delivers each song with the confidence of a life truly earned. Producer and multi-instrumentalist Donny Dykowsky (Chesterwhite) is a perfect complement for Kieran’s approachable grit and melancholy as they both set the tone for a story-telling concept with themes of light and dark, the afterlife, and beyond.

“Right now, times are so critical with the Covid-19 pandemic. People are dying, a lot of people are sick and getting crushed financially. As artists we hope this song and video can offer the world an escape for a moment from the uncertain anxious reality, we all find ourselves in right now. We are encouraging our fans to donate to a local business or a charity that is in the fight against the virus. Being from Jersey City we have made a donation to support the New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund.” Says singer Sullivan. Please considering joining us and donate here: https://njprf.org/

I recently heard about an artist called D-Witt from Rockford, IL.  Illinois is the home of some prestigious sons who have left unforgettable marks on hip-hop’s history. I’m expecting an unfiltered rebel who is unafraid to bare his soul and burn down buildings. A fearless heart is a quality that makes fearless art, and I hope that’s exactly what D-Witt has arrived to present us.  So I press play on the first track called “Enemy”. The sound is open and strong-willed. There’s no doubting that D-Witt has something to say. The amount of care that goes into his lyricism stamps his skill set. He sounds very comfortable on a beat like this – percussion, keys and a rumbling bassline – minimal with no restriction boxing his flow in.

D-Witt has that passion, tenacity and slight arrogance that his every word is pure and should not be debated. “Bandz On Me” (ft. WBC & RudeBoi Hendo) is a full-on melodic anthem that bangs from start to finish.

The song has a consistent tone and flow throughout, which is wrapped in a lush atmospheric club-styled soundscape. This is a crucial element of what makes gives this track its feel. This song provides some of those explicit anecdotes that make you smile and mull around in your brain for days after you put it down.

“Escaping Me” presents a gorgeous production. You can hear all the colors in D-Witt’s palette. Filled with personal rhymes, the rapper is in his bag, deep. You can hear it in the delivery, razor sharp and emotional. The beat switch is like a stop-and-go heartbeat, while flow keeps up with the changing pace.

I love the airy melodic hook. You can hear D-Witt right in the pocket, keeping the momentum going. Between the sweet and sultry female vocals, you can hear how D-Witt has mastered the art of making each personal line strike a personal chord. You feel the weight of each line.

“Play The Game” is even more soulful, determined and focused. The vocal hook is superbly sung, and D-Witt’s dramatic storytelling is affecting. This is music that makes you excited to hit rewind. By far some of the best lyrics to be found on this set list, and one of the best songs in the bunch.

I say one of the best, because the best is still to come, in the form of “Blue Water” which delivers yet another killer vocal hook, by a stunning female feature. Unless your heart has been surgically removed, this is music you’ll feel.

Full of chilling imagery “Blue Water” is the sound of a man falling apart. D-Witt’s delivery is heartfelt and vulnerable, as he conveys thoughts that weigh upon his soul. It gives the purest illustration of his deepest sentiments. Production is superb, a mix of dark soul and edgy electro melancholy.

D-Witt shows his strength as a storyteller, and some of the best moments are the ones that leave you wanting to know what happens next. He’ll be praised for the punchlines and quotables but when D-Witt flexes the pen of a budding cinematic storyteller, he receives my highest praise.

This set of songs fulfills the expectations I harbored at the beginning of my listen experience. D-Witt had a lot to say and he said it with vigor, passion and unfiltered rawness. The standout tracks in my book – “Play The Game” and “Blue Water” – put a spotlight on a potential star working at his craft and just waiting to shine.

Central Queensland’s Anna Farquhar sings heartfelt tales of joy, sorrow and everything in between, and is heavily inspired by her experiences and travels. Anna draws inspiring from the likes of Missy Higgins, Amy Shark and Fleetwood Mac to name just a few, Anna puts her own spin on the acoustic and pop rock genre. She is unapologetically honest in her song writing — unafraid to tell the truth, her music is direct, and she wears her heart on her sleeve. Anna’s drive to create music stems from her hardwired desire to have people connect to her music the same way she has with other artists.

Anna released her first single, ‘Mama (A Song For Chris)’ back in August 2017. It made waves in the charts, debuting at #14 and topping out at #5 for the iTunes Top 200 Australian Singer/Songwriter category. After three years, a couple of heartbreaks, constant performing and traveling, Anna Farquhar is ready to release her new music, kicking it off with her single “Boy” in March 2020.

  1. Can you tell us a bit about where you come from and how you got started?

Anna Farquhar: I’m come from a country town in Central Queensland, Australia. Music has always been a part of my life in some way, whether it was singing on the tractor with dad, playing piano with my Grandmother or singing in the car on family road trips. I didn’t pick up a guitar until I was 14 and then started writing songs when I was 16.

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

Anna Farquhar: Missy Higgins is definitely my strongest musical influence, I’ve always loved her sound and songwriting. She was the first artist I really connected with. I remember when I was 11 listening to her song “The Sound of White” and I never really understood the lyrics at the time but it was the first time I really ‘felt’ music.

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

Anna Farquhar: Amy Shark, Missy Higgins, INXS, John Butler Trio, Shot Stack, Lime Cordiale and I’ve got a great playlist of acoustic covers that I’m really loving at the moment!

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

Anna Farquhar: I would love my lyrics to be the main element that resonates with listeners. My songs are honest and to the point; I really wear my heart on my sleeve when I write songs.

  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?

Anna Farquhar: When I was first starting out listened a lot to what people thought I should be/sound like instead of being who I wanted to be and I found I wasn’t writing songs that I loved. I wasn’t until about 3 years ago where I really honed in on what I wanted to be and I’ve never looked back.

  1. What’s 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 technical artistry, personal narrative and entertainment?

Anna Farquhar: For me I definitely use music as a personal narrative. All my songs are based on life experiences (mainly heartbreaks!). Songwriting is also a form of personal therapy for me, it’s a way for me to get troubles or issues of my chest and if I get a song out of it then that’s great!

  1. Do you ever write a song with current musical trends, formulas or listener satisfaction in mind, or do you simply write focused on your own personal vision?

Anna Farquhar: I simply just write what I feel. Whatever is going on in my head I just write it down. I haven’t ever really followed musical trends, I’ve definitely taken inspiration but never tried to recreate something.

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

Anna Farquhar: I usually just sit at my piano and play different chord patterns until I get a progression I really like and then I write lyrics over the top. I’ve also got copious amounts of notes in my phone with random lyrics and I have a notebook by my bed as well if I come up with ideas in the middle of the night but I usually wake up to those lyrics that don’t much sense!

  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?

Anna Farquhar: Probably people not taking my seriously when I say the music is my full-time job. Overcoming that has just been a matter of focusing on short and long term goals and pushing myself to get out of my comfort zone as much as possible!

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

Anna Farquhar: I just release my first single ‘Boy’ off my new EP and made it onto the iTunes Alternative (Debuting at #22) and All Genres Charts. This is a significant point in my career because I’ve done this completely independently and I never thought I would make it onto a chart!

  1. Do you handle your own recording, production and mastering work or do you outsource any or all of these processes?

Anna Farquhar: I had an amazing producer, James North Productions. He really helped me make ‘my sound’ come to life. James listened to all my idea and really pushed me to make the best EP I could. I really couldn’t have asked for a better producer!

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

Anna Farquhar: Simple, ignore them.

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

Anna Farquhar: Being independent makes me appreciate my successes just that little bit more because I know how hard I’ve work for them and to see my handwork pay off makes me really proud of myself.  

  1. What were your main compositional, performance and/or production challenges when starting out, and how have they changed over time?

Anna Farquhar: My main challenge and one I still struggle with is self-doubt. I’m slowly becoming less judgmental of myself and I do that by looking back and seeing just how far I’ve come.

  1. Could you tell us something about your latest project and what fans can expect to hear?

Anna Farquhar: I’ve got an EP being released later this year! Its 6 songs about relationships, I really went all out and let myself be really venerable. I wore m heart on my sleeve with this EP and at time was probably blunt and a bit too honest but I think that’s the one thing that’s going to make it stand out.

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

Anna Farquhar: My new single ‘Boy’ is definitely one of my favorites that I’ve written, I love that song. ’Boy’ came about after a guy I’d fancied kissed me at the local bar. The next day he messaged saying “I’ve been thinking I’ve just gotten over a sore throat, I hope you don’t get it because that’d be a bit detrimental to your job!” Two days later I was sick. So, while I had a couple of days off work I was thinking “Why didn’t this guy just warn me!?” and that’s where the chorus of ‘Boy’ came from. The song ended up turning into a song about relationships or crushes that are all consuming, the ones that just sneak up on you and you wish that the person could’ve warned or told you that you’d feel so deeply for them. I never thought I would end up recording it because I just wrote it for a bit of fun and was just making a joke at my own expense

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

Anna Farquhar: Both are great! Out of the two, live performance would be my top pick. Performing and interacting with a live audience and being able to connect with people is such an amazing feeling!

  1. What’s your favorite motto, phrase or piece of advice, you try to live or inspire yourself by?

Anna Farquhar: Focus on the things you can do not things you can’t, don’t focus on anyone else’s journey, just focus on your journey and one piece of advice that I hold close; there’s not just one way to do things, if you really want something you’ll find a way to make it happen!

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

Anna Farquhar: Connecting with people. Music has been such a huge part of my life and I have connected with so different artists, their music and many of them have shaped me as a person. For me to b able to connect with people the same way I have connected with other artists would be the most rewarding thing.

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

Anna Farquhar: Main goal is to continually grow as a musician and continue to do music full time for as long as I can.

The 13 track album “CA$H ONLY” by Tommy Tony is an accumulation of experiences, from his adolescence to the present, all rooted in his town. A student of the game, Tommy Tony was born and raised in the mean streets of Roxbury in Boston. Always being hard on his grind, afforded the rapper opportunities to open for artists such as Lil Wayne, G-Unit, Memphis Bleek, and many more. That level of professionalism is brought straight to this recording. The whole album is evocative of the Roxbury artist’s ability to hypnotize the listener with a fiery flow and spellbinding beats. Grade A wordplay, thought-provoking content, and compelling storytelling is the name of the game here.

Tommy Tony kicks the album off with the dark cinematic beat on “More”. From the moment the recording process started on this track, a line was drawn in the sand, with Tommy choosing to put his thoughts on front street, out loud.

Digging deep into his treasure trove of personal experiences stemming from a complicated existence, on tracks like “Picture Me Rollin”, Tommy Tony’s storytelling is at a level that could be considered sublimely big league.

But it’s more than just telling stories. Throughout “CA$H ONLY”, Tommy Tony makes you feel like you are actually there, walking the neighborhood with him. I think people underestimate what it takes to create a vivid album like this.

Tommy puts it all out there for us all to digest, judge, love and hate. That’s the sign of a bold artist, who’s able to unburden himself of wrong doings, fears, grudges and painful memories while working his way out of life’s trenches. Hearing Tommy Tony flex his storytelling skills on the dramatic “S.T.D” is a visceral experience.

The cinematic backdrop complete with killer drums and manic keys, proves the perfect vehicle for Tommy Tony’s melodic flow on top of the urgent rhythm on “No Manner$”. He also gets his lyrical guns off on “Bo$$Man”, backed by slapping percussion and looped horns.

Then in keeping with the narrative of lyrical excellence, there’s “Gang$ta”, an earth shattering moment for the album, that hears Tommy Tony unite with rhyme partner Cap J. Moving forward the good stuff keeps coming – from the ethereal and personal “Oh Lord” and “Move”, to the dynamic bang of “50 Rack$” and “Wave”, Tommy never lets up, keeping his foot to the proverbial pedal.

Going melodic on the hooks over the “Rambo” backdrop, that is at its most lethal when the drums cut back in, Tommy Tony puts on a masterclass of changing flows.

Whether it’s Tommy spitting: “Don’t matter if you hate it or you like it. Don’t matter how you cut it or you slice it. Unanimous the judges all decided. You lost already what’s the point in fighting,” on “Head$hot”, or singing the ear-catching hook on “Te$tify”, his always connecting your mind to a significant issue.

“CA$H ONLY” proves Tommy Tony is a top tier rapper, no question. The album is a straight-talking storybook that not too many rappers are capable of delivering today. Combining transcendent lyricism with incredible instrumental choices, it’s an excellent example of how beats and rhymes are supposed to blend with one another. Not just that, “CA$H ONLY” also proves that other rappers need to really step their game up.

As the months pass slowly into years, it becomes increasingly plain to all concerned that Danish electronic music producer, Mortinus is taking his craft very seriously. He has been extraordinarily prolific and has maintained an enviable level of quality in his releases. When approaching his two singles “Star Chariot (Yellow Odyssey)” and “Oceania” the question that arises is how will Mortinus sound fare in the altered musical terrain of 2020? Well the two new singles, are fine examples of some of the best ambient, chillout, downtempo and cinematic instrumental music being made today.

Mortinus’ sound is alive and well, and his trademark luscious basslines, and infinitely deep percussion has been joined by stirringly orchestrated horns and strings, resulting in his richest sound palette yet recorded.

There can be no doubt that Mortinus is very good at what he does. There is also a satisfying professionalism that leaves the listener with a refreshing cosmopolitan buzz. Sometimes the ever-shifting musical landscape can make the listener pause to consider where a returning artist exactly fits in.

Mortinus’ prepossessing, gently beatific music first appeared a couple of years ago, and each subsequent release has seen him navigate his sounds with a calm authority and quiet modesty.

There’s a sense with “Star Chariot (Yellow Odyssey)” and “Oceania” that Mortinus has consciously tried to do something different, delivering something a little distanced from his other work, without sacrificing his core principles.  Few artists write instrumentals that stick to your brain like flies to food. Mortinus is filled with such a talent, which is evident in the epic sound of “Oceania”.

The producer understands the power of simplicity, consistently creating with a linear touch and a fully textured soul. His music is confident and easy like a Sunday morning, complete with richly resonating horns, and crisp percussion on “Oceania” which inevitably inspires much humming and head nodding.

Mortinus seems to be able to create atmospheres of sound which although at first seem somewhat simplistic, are actually quite deep and entrancing. “Oceania” also has the strange quality of being really ominously epic and yet really relaxing at the same time.

If you’re looking for cleverly structured, tightly played, wonderfully enchanting music that avoids the boringly tropes that sink many of the current flood of instrumental electronic tracks, look no further than “Star Chariot (Yellow Odyssey)”.

Mortinus’ skills as a serious ambient and downtempo innovator get the make-over with the underlying complexity which augments on this track, without destroying the melodic content. The end result? A song you’ll play over and over again because you keep finding more and more layers behind its inherently catchy tune.

Mortinus keeps making high-class tracks that draw you back for more. This is what meticulously crafted and beautifully atmospheric studio music is all about. I definitely found “Star Chariot (Yellow Odyssey)” and “Oceania” to be more mature in structure and sound, than any of Mortinus’ previous releases.

The tracks are poetic in a more sophisticated way. The sounds and instruments are authentic, vivid and evoke an ethereal depth, lucidity, and timelessness. Both of these songs are virtually flawless, flowing from front to back with an effortless harmony that has to be heard. This is what the beautiful world of electronic music sounds like.

Stiff Lauren – “Faith In Me” – a triumphant track about having faith in yourself http://jamsphere.com/newreleases/stiff-lauren-faith-in-me-a-triumphant-track-about-having-faith-in-yourself http://jamsphere.com/newreleases/stiff-lauren-faith-in-me-a-triumphant-track-about-having-faith-in-yourself#respond Sun, 29 Mar 2020 23:02:48 +0000 http://jamsphere.com/?p=39027 Fearless and uncompromising, Stiff Lauren is back to deliver a triumphant track about having faith in yourself no matter what.

Fearless and uncompromising, Stiff Lauren is back to deliver a triumphant track about having faith in yourself no matter what. Stiff Lauren is a hip-hop artist who is no stranger to speaking what’s on his mind. Since he hit the scene, he’s never been one to hold his tongue or been one to fear throwing the first punch. Whether or not you’ve followed Stiff from the beginning, one thing has been apparent through the highs and the lows: he’s talented and confident – his latest single “Faith In Me” is a perfect example of that.

Stiff Lauren once again takes the industry by the horns with this song, and is ready to propel his career up yet another level. The rapper has crafted a track that surpasses his peers, and regardless of your opinion on him, there is no denying that Stiff Lauren is something special.

The overall production of the track is superb, it’s polished and crisp, delivering a true hip-hop experience. This helps deliver the experience in a well-rounded fashion, it never feels cluttered with too many sounds or layers of instrumentation, it’s a masterclass of artistic taste. “Faith In Me” demonstrates that Stiff Lauren isn’t just a emcee, but an artistic visionary.

Stiff Lauren can be compared to number of well-known resonant voices in the game, however he’s a different beast entirely. Not only does he demonstrate his ear for sound on but his ability to write music.

Stiff can deliver a catchy song without compromising his integrity for radio-play or to be a mainstream artist, in fact his songs appear to be effortlessly written while still appealing to either side of the spectrum- the hardcore Hip-Hop fans and those who enjoy the Top 40 hits.

“Faith In Me” is a prime example of this. It features Stiff Lauren delivering a pure Rap experience over a driving beat only to be fused with a brilliant chorus which enhances the song, while crossing that line of being just being one thing or the other. The inspired beat swirls, pulsates and bounces while Stiff growls and spits his rhymes with ease.

Stiff Lauren is a versatile artist. His sound is both old school and contemporary, he is the embodiment of creativity. His entire vocal performance is spot on, his voice is his weapon of choice and boy is it deadly.

Unlike these other of-the-moment stars, Stiff demands the spotlight with minimalist back tracks that focus on his fast and resonating lines. Littered with loads of assonance, consonance and every kind of literary device imaginable, he proves that he can spit eloquently.

Stiff Lauren has managed to create a brand new track that was worth the wait. The music industry is a battleground for established major label artists, let alone unsigned, underground grinders like himself. But Stiff holds his own, and shows that it’s a war he can easily fight and quite possibly win. “Faith In Me” is an honest experience, it’s Stiff Lauren in beast mode, and just like the individual himself, it’s positive and enthralling.

Phreckle$ is an independent solo artist out of Los Angeles, California. She writes all her own songs, and produces professional quality artistic music videos. A precocious talent, Phreckle$, played trumpet at 9 years old in the school band, by 12 she was performing at the Carnegie Hall, and a year later she started going to punk shows. At 17 she was playing bass in 3 different punk bands. At the age of 22, she was discovered as a model and is now an internationally signed model working with the top photographers and magazines in the industry, which has put her on the map worldwide. Phreckle$ has however, not lost her passion for music carving out a presence as a rapper with a growing fanbase.

Her latest freshly created release, is the single “IDFWP” which dropped on 3/13/2020. Females working in hip hop have always tended to raise more eyebrows than it has given birth to legitimately good music, but now with the flux of thoughtful hip hop, courtesy of such visionary artists as Phreckle$, there seems to be a little more to write home about in terms of genuine artistry and competent songwriting within the genre.

There were always fears that females would struggle to thrive in a predominantly male-dominated industry as volatile as this, and the reason has far less to do with ability and a whole lot more to do with content. Phreckle$ strips away the chauvinism and misanthropy for a more rounded, accessible branch of the genre, whether it be through mature and intelligent themes or emotional and artistic ardor.

Phreckle$ is ready to rock the boat with her inventive and catchy single “IDFWP”. Produced by Stefan Raymond Mason, the track has a spacy and atmospheric electronic backdrop, on which Phreckle$ weaves her web of self-empowering positive rap.

The flow Phreckle$ rhymes with, is also impressive, spitting out monotone bars second and then coming across as startlingly melodic the next. She is always eloquent and charming in a natural rough-and-tumble way.

The complexity of her lyrical depth works brilliantly with the straightforward, no-nonsense style of the music. The use of clean singing must also be complimented, as she displays during this song that she can carry off tuneful vocals in addition to speedy talk. “IDFWP” clocks in at roughly two minutes and fifty three seconds, and it’s just long enough to be the perfect introduction to Phreckle$ unique style.

The seemingly uninhabitable middle ground between the serious hip hop working the underground, and the hit-making pop rap that has been flooding the charts, is not an obstacle Phreckle$, as she is able to comfortably find the pocket between the two.

She sings like a pro, she delivers rhymes as if she’s been doing it since forever, and she radiates charisma without breaking a sweat. In other words, she’s the traditional total package. And that’s the thing that makes “IDFWP” so exciting to listen to. It’s almost as thrilling as watching the video for the first time.

New single from Slitherilla ft. Strapp titled “Rocket”. This is just one of many great singles that Slitherilla’s released since his 2019 project Slither Season. Slitherilla is steady building his fan base and will be an artist to keep an eye on in 2020.

Slitherilla has never been a traditionalist. He’s unafraid to differentiate himself from the mainstream, sacred rap sound, all while still having high regards in pop culture. The rapper’s power to create melodies with dynamic beats and smart chord progressions is what makes him such an asset to the new wave underground rap industry. Furthermore, his voice has a color and distinctness that can transcend any genre.

“Rocket” is enrapturing from the start, and with Slitherilla easy flow, the song’s melodic chorus and its steady hypnotizing beat, this song is one of the highlights of 2020 so far. Featuring Strapp, the track has an incredible flow from the start.

As soon as Slitherilla comes in, every trap-rap fan knows what’s up. He’s flamboyant as hell, riding the bass-booming beat with ease. “Rocket” is a project of excellent quality, with a personality of its own. The listener is in for a treat, from start to finish with this one.

Canadian born Latin pop recording artist Nancy Diaz has been navigating her way through the Canadian music scene since 2011 with her pop single “Summer Addiction” along with official music video. Her sexy and sassy fusion of English/Latin music has led to the release of many well received singles, garnering her critical acclaim and audience satisfaction. Apart from firmly establishing herself among her musical contemporaries and peers, Diaz has also made her mark in the modeling world posing for magazines, fashion labels and fashion photographers such as Cliché Magazine, Deniori Couture and Monarch Photography.

Directly involved in quite a few animal charities such as, Mercy for Animals Canada, Farm Animal Rights Movement, Animal Justice, Human Society International, Peterborough Humane Society and Toronto Humane Society, donating and fundraising for them, and championing their causes, Nancy Diaz still finds the time to drop mind-blowing tracks. This is the case with her latest electro-pop banger “No Mas” which is currently available on all platforms.

“No Mas” sees Nancy Diaz once again complete a successful collaboration with Caelum Music Production, LLC who produced the track, giving it the shine and sparkle needed to elevate all levels of performance and creativity.

It’s the perfect combination of polished and natural – the smooth, mid-tempo synth driven production contrasts with Diaz’s sultry voice, slipping from English to Spanish mid-song, and punctuated with soaring choruses. Bittersweet, earnest, and sprinkled with those little nuggets of narrative detail that distinguish Diaz’s lyrics, “No Mas” twinkles and glows with warmth.

Nancy Diaz voice transitions from dreamily melancholy to a passionate effort to make her affirming statements over a slowly-building beat. The song’s flourishing electronic sound and Diaz’s captivating vocal delivery represents an artist at the peak of her creativity and inner power. Love can be one of the most exhilarating, and yet terrifying human experiences: a friendship suddenly accelerating into an all-consuming passion.

Sparks fly, hormones surge, and you give yourself over completely to this burgeoning obsession. You throw aside caution and boundaries. It’s the kind of rush that feels like infinity. But then somewhere along the line someone does something wrong.

The emotional fall can be so devastating you wouldn’t want to go through it again. “No Mas” is a fabulous record, full of sonic delights that will make your heart burst. It oozes with Nancy Diaz’s palatable understated sass. But more importantly, it shows she also knows how to write about love…or lack thereof.

Nancy Diaz’s ability to weave a tale out of this classic trope, and do it in only 2 minutes and 44 seconds shows a real evolution of talent. She knows how to capture relationships with masterful lyrics that cut to your core with their specific details.

When it comes to straightforward, emotionally communicative songs, she deserves to be recognized as a very good writer. But even that doesn’t matter, because with “No Mas”, Nancy Diaz reminds us that beyond the smart songwriting, and the sharply focused production, she is after all, a dazzlingly captivating performer, and that shines through everything.

Upcoming urban songster, Shaud, drops his highly anticipated single “Fallin’” ft. Sean Eversen. This is a track with a generous helping of highlights, not least because of Shaud’s enviable vocal versatility and affinity for dramatic song-craft – an irresistible combo that sees him playing the afflicted hero in this passionate fantasy.

“Fallin’” ft. Sean Eversen stands out for the ingenious way Shaud’s performance moves effortlessly from offhand, earnest and charming verses, to a gorgeous, soaring bridge, and then a horny and ultimately lovesick chorus, mirroring the song’s lyrics about the complex cycles of a relationship.

The track is the product of a clear artistic vision. Shaud writes nothing but memorable melodies and his songwriting is the engine that makes “Fallin’” ft. Sean Eversen work. It takes his affinity for R&B and Pop, and turns them into a song that feels totally of the moment.

Shaud was born in Columbia, South Carolina, on August 16, 1993. By age 8, he was performing as a soloist in the junior gospel choir at his Baptist church.

Shaud released his first single, “Say Something,” in December 2018. A week later, he released his second single “Complicated”. Less than two months after his debut, Shaud returned with a 3 song EP “February” demonstrating his influences from RnB and Pop music in his early childhoods of his urban community.

By the end of 2019, Shaud had issued the singles, “TLC” featuring college colleagues , “So Don’t” featuring another Carolina Native by the name of QID, “Yours” being his first radio debut on local WXRY , and “Performance”.

Strands of piano, violin and cello move hypnotically in waves, together with choral interludes, as themes appear, fade and reappear in varied guises, together forming a seamless chronicle of Vincent Krennerich’s emotional imagery on his debut, classically inclined, three song EP, entitled “Gedanke”. Krennerich is a young German pianist and composer who recorded this solo project in Salzburg, Austria. The simple combination between the piano, which carries the melody, and the strings which add melancholic support, results in the intoxicatingly moving compositions.

The opening track, “Olivgrün”, starts off subtly – a gentle piece that evokes the stillness of early morning in the countryside. It is beautifully understated, with the piano and the player, pairing up effectively. The distinctive approach of the rolling piano notes, create a thrilling piece that is the first to encourage the hairs on the back of your neck to stand on end.

There is a lot of spectral beauty to be found on this pastoral EP. It is a respite from the rush and crowdedness of life, taking the listener to places of more beauty, solitude and tranquility than daily life generally affords us. In that direction, surely, lies a large portion of Vincent Krennerich’s appeal. This set is an absorbing and exquisite body of music, with moments that may well make you tearful and glad to be alive.

None more so than on “Gedanke”, the title track. Given its reliance on slow building chord sequences, delicate melodic hooks and exquisite harmonic aesthetic, designed together with the melancholic notes of the cello, there is no reason to question the sincerity behind the music or the sincerity with which it is received. Vincent Krennerich’s music feels safe and reassuring midst a world that seems to be less and less so.

The songs flow from one into the next without so much as a flutter, and the only hints are the subtle melodic changes along with beautifully fluctuating dynamics. This particularly true with the transition from “Gedanke” to the stunning, more fleshed out arrangement of “Das Tal”, which closes the recording.

Vincent Krennerich has absolutely no problem losing himself in his performance, as his passion for performing flows from his fingertips through the piano and into the atmosphere of your room. As the pianist’s fingers dance up and down the keys it is possible – in the back of your mind – to hear the thud of the hammers and strings working their magic.

Krennerich manages to make his performances sound effortless, all while the melodies spill out of his instrument and into the ears of what will surely be an adoring audience. Vincent Krennerich is so much more than a musician; he’s a composer, a storyteller, but most of all he’s human. He manages to make the listener feel so many kinds of emotion throughout his performances here.

All throughout the EP, the music is minimalist and deeply evocative, with the pianist’s fingers dancing subtly across the keys. Vincent Krennerich’s music evokes feeling. It pulls listeners in, but even more impressively, it pulls them in just enough to let them make the experience their own. This is an amazing accomplishment for a pianist on his debut release.

Following her well-reviewed single release “Consentido”, The Latin urban trap/electro-pop alternative singer-songwriter and visual artist KORDELYA has finally released her anticipated debut album entitled “Mal Hecha”.

In this new 9-track heartfelt album that is an ode to the imperfectly made, KORDELYA continues to showcase her tremendous vocal flow and signature light urban-based productions in songs “Consentido”, “Terco” and “Pedazo De”; stays true to her versatility with hints of tropical-synthpop in “Metiche”; and strips down her vocals by being as transparent as ever on tracks such as “Mal Hecha”, “s a l u d o s” and “Acero”.

“Propelled from a darker shade of trap, the Mexican-American artist emerges into her own distinct light of confidence and innovation, harmonizing her cultural influences for a rich sound.” – Eearmilk

“Explosive and colorful electro-pop” – Nylon Espanol

“Mal Hecha” touches upon learning how to love yourself and your imperfections: “The album is about the ways in which we can be ‘mal hechos’ [badly made] but also an awakening to our identity and what makes us unique; that sometimes instead of making an effort to change our faults we forget that we have to celebrate them too. Being shy to a certain extent makes you considerate and humble. Being ‘terco’ [stubborn] makes you persistent with your goals. Imperfections are also beautiful – you just have to find the right angle for them,” KORDELYA explains.

 

Continuously inspired by both her Mexican and American roots and her passion for ethnic, percussive instruments and electronic production, KORDELYA has developed her own style – a combination of electric array of textures, ranging from dark trap-learning production to more synth-based sounds – and delivers to her fans today the first taste of her musical capabilities with “Mal Hecha”.

“Mal Hecha” Track List:

  1. Güey

Tommy Tony recently unleashed his latest project – the 13 track album “Ca$H Only”. Tommy’s rugged bars sounds magical over soulful production, which is why this recording hits so hard. The setting allows his introspective thoughts to soar. Throughout, the rapper proves himself to be consistently witty, clever and skilled at setting fire to the vocal booth. His voice is all round edges and solid cores; he crops his words so that they’re clean and audible, and yet they also seem to run smoothly into one another. Other times, his rapping very fast and sounds unbothered.

Sure enough, the flow varies a number of times on “Ca$H Only”, as most excitingly, Tommy Tony performs a verbal balancing act against the tricky rhythms, while riding out the banging beats.

In the volatile universe of rap music, where traditionalists and young trendsetters fight for a place under the spotlight, and artists can blow up and flame out in a matter of months, “Ca$H Only” is set to send Tommy Tony towards center stage. His consistency and relatability should keep him there.

MORE ABOUT: Tommy Tony is seasoned emcee who has long been a student of the game, admiring the top lyricists of the golden era, such as Tupac, Jay-Z, and 50 Cent. He prides himself on his penmanship and keeps a reverence for the past with an eye on the future.

Mixtape after mixtape, Tommy showed his innate drive while rapping throughout the city of Boston, which led to a loyal fan base within the city and opportunities to open for artists such as Lil Wayne, G-Unit, Memphis Bleek, and many more. He is also a former member of the City Slickers Crew, a group that saw great success with their last project, “A.D.I.D.A.S.”

Tommy Tony is on radio rotation with the track “S.T.D.”

Easy Views – “Porta Da Chill” – chillout energy and soulful seduction! http://jamsphere.com/newreleases/easy-views-porta-da-chill-chillout-energy-and-soulful-seduction http://jamsphere.com/newreleases/easy-views-porta-da-chill-chillout-energy-and-soulful-seduction#respond Fri, 27 Mar 2020 15:20:56 +0000 http://jamsphere.com/?p=38973 Based in sunny California U.S.A Easy Views release their debut E.P. – “Porta Da Chill” on the Smokersblend Record label run by producer Dominic Owen (The Love Theme).

Based in sunny California U.S.A Easy Views release their debut E.P. – “Porta Da Chill” on the Smokersblend Record label run by producer Dominic Owen (The Love Theme). They define their sound as “Sunshine Chill” with a laid back Boom Bap beat. “Porta Da Chill” is one of the smoother recordings this side of the new year, melding tuneful basslines with bright, positive keyboard vibes and slapping drums. It also showcases the project’s talents for blunting sounds to perfection.

This is a work of chillout energy, soulful seduction – and in the truest sense, a work of fusion. Easy Views tease the line between various forms and styles of music, revealing that line to be extremely thin and gray. Their exploration of these thin, gray boundaries is not only insightful but also artistically captivating.

The strength of this compilation of four explorations in the land of Boom Bap groove may best lie in its production. Although the music and creative work is presented in impeccable fashion, the level of production on this release is a reflection of current developments in the underground urban sound.

As the art form progresses into its next stage propelled by the creative talent of what to us are lesser known artists, the level of production is what differentiates 21st century music from that of the past. Easy Views have created a very clean sounding, multi-layered and multi-leveled controlled impingement of sound here.

With “Porta Da Chill”, Easy Views present a selection of tracks that serve as an instrumental lover’s paradise, showcasing the broad diversity of their influences and articulation of music. Always full of groove each track takes on a different character, sets a different tone, and explores a different ambience, though all connected by one musical theme.

Opener “1990” establishes a sultry groove, setting the perfect backdrop for the warm shimmering keys and horn interludes. All is spiced up by with little touches of hip-hop, a taste of R&B, and a spoon-full of jazz.

A bare and dusty snare beat provides a blunted downtempo backdrop for Easy Views canvas on the title track, “Porta Da Chill”, as they fill it with it sparkling motifs and a bassline that punches in and out like clockwork. The richness and warmth accentuated by the use of the keyboards on “Fresh Drip”, is a masterclass in production as Easy Views provide a swinging groove for the skittering hi-hats to effortlessly bed down on.

With a continued polished production and an even higher melody count, “Switching Lanes” closes the EP. The result is a sexy, lush, glowing piece of instrumental soul with a sticky drum beat, liquid electric piano motifs, uplifting progressions and gorgeous strings.

“Porta Da Chill” is an EP that doesn’t chase any current trends nor try to emulate what has come before, rather, they build and expand, on known genre aesthetics, bringing their own “Sunshine Chill” to the groove.

Who in the world enjoys having to drive home in an overabundance of traffic after having worked eight grueling hours during the day? No one does. In truth a discovery has just been made that will surely cure the tediousness of such a trip. That discovery is Easy Views.
