In June 2018 Tasos Petsas (Tasos P.), a Greek creator of electronic music, released – via FM Records – his 7th single in a row called “Untitled”. The track entered into the Top20 of the ‘Best House Tracks’ of the well-known international site Beatport and reached the #8 spot on IFPI (Official Singles Chart in Greece) and the #8 spot on the Greek Billboard.

The video clip of the track has also been added onto the MTV UK playlist in August, and in the playlist of the popular Greek Radio channel Best 92.6 FM.

On the 9th of October, the day of his birthday, Tasos Petsas returned “unexpectedly” with a surprise release of a new track called “Bliss”. The track is reminiscent of a score that could easily be a theme for a thriller.

There is a specific note that is constantly played from the beginning to the end of the song, as the creator intended, which has a symbolic meaning for him. It alludes to the “struggle to survive”. The “strange” voices that can be heard in the track also give a nice cinematic feeling to the entire soundscape.

This week the single “Bliss” has already entered into the Top100 of best electronic-downtempo singles on Beatport, at #59.

Daddy Slaggy is a Reggae dancehall artist/songwriter inspired and nurtured by the vibrant 90’s dancehall and Afrobeat entertainment industry. Now signed with RehegooMusic Group for all streaming & distribution and previously signed to Neville Barnett’s Wolverhampton Reggae label AD2000 (2002-2004) alongside Britain Got Talent 2018 finalist Donchez Dacres. He was born and raised in Zimbabwe and is now based in Glasgow UK. Formerly known as Slaggy Yout his musical catalogue consists of English, Jamaican Patios and Shona tunes inspired by everyday social struggles and events, acting as a mouthpiece for the poor, oppressed, heartbroken, lonely and not forgetting the party animals. His music infuses styles from the 80’s, 90’s and current day, making it timeless. Daddy Slaggy is currently working on his EP titled VIBE WIT ME due out this November 2018 and aims at becoming one of the biggest reggae acts to come out of this cold island during this millennium.

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

Daddy Slaggy: Soon as my dreams of being a footballer faded I started my own sound system Black Scorpion in 1996 back in Zimbabwe then made the transition to music artist 1997/8 when i joined a reggae group called Cruxial Mix led by Trevor Hall.

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

Daddy Slaggy:King Yellowman(Jamaica) and Culture T(Zimbabwe) those influenced me to start writing lyrics before I even knew what I was doing.

  1. Which new artists are you currently listening to or find interesting?

Daddy Slaggy:Chronixx,Lila Ike and Steflon Don just to name a few and mainly the new Afrobeat wave its totally lit.

  1. What do you feel are the key elements people should be getting out of your music?

Daddy Slaggy: Positive vibes, inspiration and a good time.

  1. What do you think separates you from the crowd of Reggae/Dancehall music artists emerging right now?

Daddy Slaggy: I still use the 90’s Reggae Dancehall concept when making a song then give it a new school feel, as the new emerging artists seem to sway towards hiphop influence.

  1. Do you think music should also educate and be responsible towards its communities, or is it okay to just entertain people?

Daddy Slaggy: It should definitely educate and be responsible in most cases as it is a powerful tool that can easily bring people of all walks of life together or separate them, Bob Marley sang One Love let’s get together more than 3 decades ago but it still relevant up to now.

  1. What is the origin of you artistic name?

Daddy Slaggy: during my sound system days and early music career I used to be called Slaggy Yout a name I just created from the top of my head, only to come to the UK to find the word slaggy has a different meaning all together so as I was already known by it, I just upgraded following the footsteps of other daddy’s in the business e.g. Daddy U Roy, Daddy Screw.

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

Daddy Slaggy: I would say rocking a music arts festival with over 20 000 people as a rookie with no released catalogue and most recently signing a distribution deal out of the blue.

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

Daddy Slaggy: Dodgy performance contracts, and also the transitional period when I was trying to balance family life and music life.

  1. What key ingredients do you always try and infuse into your songs?

Daddy Slaggy: every song has a meaning, and also I love to give the listener a feel good feeling laced up with a simple hook

  1. Do you also produce the beats and write the lyrics on your songs or do you collaborate with outside sources in any of these cases?

Daddy Slaggy: I write all my songs and sometimes rope in a singer to sing the chorus I have written, as for beats I normally use beats store to buy my beats but I am starting to make my own beats not new to beat making by the way.

 

  1. Which aspect of being an independent artist and the music making process excites you most and which aspect discourages you most?

Daddy Slaggy: The freedom of expressing your art with no label politics interfering with your craft as you reap all the full rewards the downside is mainly lack of pressure as pressure sometimes brings out the best in us and finance.

  1. If you had the chance to work with any internationally recognized and successful producer or artist, who would that choice fall on right now?

Daddy Slaggy: Sly and Robbie would be the obvious choice but here in the UK would be a choice between Rudimental and Calvin Harris.

  1. Are you happy about the way the music works right now, with digital platforms like iTunes, Tidal and Spotify etc., or would you change anything about it?

Daddy Slaggy: I love the digital platforms especially Spotify I tried my luck with the old system back in 1999,2000 and I must say it’s was off putting and challenging, but with the new system you be an overnight start without leaving your bedroom .

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

Daddy Slaggy: Vibrant Afrocentric Reggae Dancehall as my music is a fusion of both African and Jamaican vibes.

  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?

Daddy Slaggy: Times have changed and social media is the game changer its now easier to have fans over the other side of the world without even a record label so I am on board with all of it now my music is reaching places lie the Philippines, Brazil etc.

  1. Tell us something about your latest release and where fans can find it.

Daddy Slaggy:  Last month I signed a distribution and streaming contract with Rehegoo Music Group so they are repackaging all my singles and some are already live on all media platforms like Spotify, Tidal, iTunes under the name Daddy Slaggy.

  1. What is your relationship with visual media? Do you think videos are important for your music? Do you have a video you would recommend fans checkout, and are you busy working on something new for them?

Daddy Slaggy: in the past I never had a chance to commit to a music video but now I have realized the importance of videos in this day and age they are really influential in how people perceive your song, so I am working on the storyboard for my forthcoming video.

  1. Do you prefer working and creating in a studio environment, or performing live and dominating an audience?

Daddy Slaggy:  I sort of favor the performance aspect over the recording mainly because I started performing with a live band before I got a chance to record and it gives the freedom to entertain which I really love.

  1. What is the next important step for you in the near future?

Daddy Slaggy: I am currently polishing up my EP titled Vibe Wit Me due out November but as a treat for my fans I am hosting a live EP streaming party on Facebook on the 26th of October everyone is welcome the Facebook handle is @daddyslaggy.

Italian DJ, producer and model Lord Conrad has been taking the dance and pop fraternity by storm – first with the single ‘Touch the Sky’, and then with the follow-up “Day After Day”. Not satisfied, Lord Conrad burst forward with another power pop release recently, entitled “1 Minute”. And just to show that he is a man on a mission, he bounces right back with a brand new track – “Fight Till The End”. So, what does he have to offer with his new release? An insane beat to smash dance-floors. He is ready to wow clubbers with his flawless tech/electro/house infused sounds and charismatic performance flair. Yes, because on “Fight Till The End”, Lord Conrad goes back to pure, classic electro house sounds.

It’s a place where you can expect a four-to-the-flour thumping beat and bin-throttling bass. But the real gusto on the track comes from the air-sucking synth sweeps and dramatically epic breakdowns. Lord Conrad makes synthesizers live and breathe in a way few can.

It’s just ear-catching, and it’s an example of the sort of thing that makes him such an extraordinary artist in the too-often formulaic world of dance music. Lord Conrad, for his part, obviously counts on his fans recognizing the personal touches he puts into his music, how each of his tracks is the product of his emotional journey.

Regardless of the quality of the music, he comes off heartfelt and genuine in this respect every time. Lord Conrad, like most producers of his talent, hits the highest artistic marks when he’s not focused on making pop music concessions, and is instead tasked with commanding attention for his potent production.

Lord Conrad is dedicated to being an EDM superstar hence he always crafts something of great value when he is behind the boards. “Fight Till The End” makes a statement that Lord Conrad is versatile in that he can be formulaic to invade the pop airwaves, but also craft songs that go straight for the throat…and the dance-floor.

While an ambitious artist seeking to stay ahead of the curve might shamelessly take up future house, Lord Conrad has done the exact opposite. He’s taken the testosterone of electro house to a higher level, managing to make it new and exciting again in the process. It’s a blood-racing synth anthem.

You just know that this one is going to be uplifting and, most importantly, super huge. Simply because you can feel it. “Fight Till The End” is bold, brash, and bassy, yet still lovely, clean and organized electro house; something we’re very no longer used to with the advent of commercial dance music.

Lord Conrad brings forth his achievement of high caliber musicianship with a genuine excitement, as well as his talent and its capacity to move people. Listening to Lord Conrad is a brilliant experience, in part, because you are so impressed with his creativity. And here he has impressed once again in a massive way
with “Fight Till The End”. This track has the potential to make it big on the club scene.

Shaun Jacobs: “Rollin’” – Commanded by soaring vocals and invigorated production! http://jamsphere.com/newreleases/shaun-jacobs-rollin-commanded-by-soaring-vocals-and-invigorated-production http://jamsphere.com/newreleases/shaun-jacobs-rollin-commanded-by-soaring-vocals-and-invigorated-production#respond Sat, 20 Oct 2018 12:19:37 +0000 http://jamsphere.com/?p=33399 started out playing drums at a very young age, but it was only when he turned 15 and his older brother thought it would be good for him to learn more than one instrument that his love for guitar, singing and songwriting was born.

started out playing drums at a very young age, but it was only when he turned 15 and his older brother thought it would be good for him to learn more than one instrument that his love for guitar, singing and songwriting was born. Growing up in a family where his dad was an opera singer and his brothers’ able musical craftsmen as well, Shaun soon started writing, recording and producing his own music.

It wasn’t long before the South African artist gained traction in his home country, winning the SAMA 2014 Adult Contemporary Album of the Year, as well as nominations for Best Producer and Best Mix Engineer. He now seemed ready to make the jump from the pond into the great big ocean. Hence the move from South Africa to Los Angeles.

And right off the cuff, Shaun is featured on the Gold and Platinum hit-maker, Bruno Martini’s single “YOUNGR”, released the 19th October and produced by Timbaland and Bruno Martini, who currently has close to 1 billion streams on Spotify.

To complete his initial international thrust Shaun Jacobs is releasing his latest single “Rollin’”, which will be available via Mulholland Records and all major digital download stores.

Shaun Jacobs’ rapid ascension from nobody to somebody means that every subsequent move he makes needs to be well thought out, and with “Rollin’” he meets all expectations. Opening like a cinematic scene-setter, it’s clear that the track is here to prove that Shaun has formulated a gritty chart-topping sound which draws from all his talents and charms and churns them into a track that’s both brooding and confident.

Shaun plays the tormented narrator throughout the verses, while the choruses have a soulful feeling which is impossible not to be swept up in. The emotion Shaun puts into his music also adds to the beauty of it. The track’s imagery is powerful and presents feelings of nostalgia to the listener.

Without a doubt, Shaun Jacobs has a built-in ability to transport you into whatever world he determines, as the song gives you the impression that it’s a life you’ve lived – a testament to his songwriting ability. With his new release, it’s obvious that Shaun is a man on a mission.

“Rollin’” sees the singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist fuse nuanced flavors into his own brand of alternative rock — relying on infectious pop hooks and soulful vocals. The introspective lyricism provides an insight into the ponderings of those who believe in the light and goodness of the world but need to rediscover their guidance to escape the darkness.

This all adds up to a solid single that presents an immediate difference to what went before, even if it does not roam too far from the roots of Shaun’s past. The anthemic track presents a sense of urgency, combined with an animated build-up and release.

Commanded by soaring vocals and invigorated production, “Rollin’” is a thoroughly immersive ride that shows Shaun Jacobs has plenty of ideas brimming in his head for the future.

You’ve written a killer song. The lyrics and music are flowing but there’s just something missing. Maybe it’s a guitar strum, riff or pluck. It could be a thumping bassline or some shimmering keys. More often than not, it’s a groovy drum beat. You know that any these would be the perfect complement to your newly written potential hit, but how can you get that sound for your song? If you’re a beginner, it’s a tough ride to create that professional recording sound at home. On the other hand, if you’re a professional you’re usually hard pushed for time to get the job done in your commercial studio.

Thankfully companies like Samplified exist. They consist of a group of professional in-house music producers with over twenty five years of combined experience in audio engineering. Samplified curate non-filler high quality music sounds, samples, loops, presets, one shots, and more. They even supply unique tutorials.

Seriously folks, the right sound can really add something special to your song. Song creation is like a puzzle with the melody, instruments, lyrics, and vocals. Sometimes the right sample or loop can be just the piece you need to complete the puzzle. And it costs a whole lot less than hiring a studio musician.

Today, samples and loops are widely used in many genres of popular music, including Electronic music, R&B, Hip-hop and even Pop music. The use of loops and sample libraries has become commonplace. There aren’t many songs on the radio right now that don’t use at least one of the two.

And as the use of these recording elements have increased, so too has the quality of its core material.  There is are extensive libraries of pre–existing loops and samples available all over the web, however it is imperative that you find out if they are royalty free in order to ensure that you don’t infringe any copyright that has been placed on the loop.

Here too, you are safe with Samplified, who have you covered. Furthermore their sample packs are compatible with any DAW including Ableton, Logic, Pro Tools, FL Studio and Maschine.

A sample can create something really special within your track and show it off; layering once again comes into play here and incorporating a sample as a layer can make the depth of your song really meaty and interesting. To this intent Samplified has recently released the Acoustic Guitar Loops and Rhodes and E-Videos packs.

They also dropped the premium super packs, “Poetica”, with Souelction artist j.robb and a cool drum kit, “Lo-fi & Chill”, with rising artist ‘quickly, quickly’. These packs will kick-start your creativity, and complete your project with professionally recorded sounds ready to boost your brand.

MORE ABOUT: Samplified focuses on pushing the boundaries of sound, providing no-filler pack content and unique tutorials. The company, which prides itself on producing sample packs full of usable content, was founded by two music entrepreneurs with over 20 years of combined experience. They seek to assist producers in improving their music sample library, mix, and production techniques. With headquarters in Austin, TX, the company is based in a thriving music community. As the music production company expands, they continue to bring different genres of production and create tutorials to assist in production efforts.

DJ/Producer All Atomic, from Bristol United Kingdom, grew up around music and was mixing tunes at nine years old and was soon deejaying at illegal raves. His music is a fusion of his influences: “You have to have an open mind when making music,” says All Atomic. “Let the music guide you, it will tell you what it needs you to do.” Persuaded by artist and producer Aniofades, All Atomic sent a demo to the Pink Dolphin Music Ltd label, and got signed up. A heap of well-received releases followed, with the producer bringing his classically unique sound to the table. All Atomic works his primary strengths, with layered synths creating throwback techno and a popping beats giving his songs the muscle it needs to drive dance-floors.

Combining ambience and techno all along with throbbing basslines, this is where the looping of metaphysics melds with the spirit of dance. Every song is crafted to perfection with either very interesting rhythms, catchy melodies, or both.

Most importantly, All Atomic steers clear of the candy-coated sugary EDM/Pop more interested in making the Top40 charts than moving dance-floors. The closest he comes to that aesthetic, is on his remix of “Smile” – an original track by the synth-pop Welsh duo Wrekit88. But even here, he manages to infuse the vocal track with some of his own left-field dissonance and synth chaos.

The UK producer is really in his element on “Fly Beyond The Stratosphere”. This is dance in its pure state; made before electronic music fractured into a billion genres, All Atomic put in a bit of everything – hovering synths, throbbing basslines, pumping percussion –  and the result is far more than the sum of its parts.

If you really want to spend some quality time with All Atomic, a good choice would be his “OMG Still Dropping Acid” EP. Here he lends the mixes a delightful trippy otherworldly flavor that subtly adds to the overall sense of a musical journey through the mind. Production is excellent, and these four tracks sound great – both through snugging headphones or big hulking stacks.

Put this on repeat and you’ll soon be voyaging through mind-space. In my personal opinion, this is All Atomic’s best work. In many ways it encapsulates what dance music could and should be about: the propagation of a feeling of euphoria for the duration of the music.

If you appreciate those 8-bit gaming synth sounds, then you shouldn’t miss All Atomic’s take on this theme, on the floor-stomper “Moon Dance” (currently known as Atomic Moon and re-released and remastered on Pink Dolphin Music Ltd). It will come at you so fast you won’t know what hit you.

All Atomic elevates electronic music to a purer and higher level, and will introduce many young people to how electronic music once used to be before it became infiltrated by radio-ready pop and cheap female vocal hooks.

Apart from rare escapades, All Atomic hardly produces mainstream music, he much prefers leftfield experimentation or undiscovered lanes. For those who grew up on electronic music in its infancy years, it does not, and could not, get any better than this.

NothingDark is a 3-piece from Montreal Canada, formed in 2018. Its members, made up of Nack Jicholson (Vocals, guitars, synth), Roxanne Miller (Bass, backing vocals) and Matt Davis (Drums, percussion) are inspired by 80’s synth pop and rock. Nack & Matt handle all recording, mixing, and production in the band’s well-equipped Montreal studio. “Tragicomedy” is their 2nd EP, while work on the third and fourth installments are already underway. For any of you synth lovers out there, this is the record to get, though there is plenty of guitar too. NothingDark is a band that will take you to places both musically and visually that you thought only existed in some distant past. The band is exotically ‘synthified’ while maintaining enough elements of alternative rock to attract that crowd too. Their oscillating basslines are immediately recognizable, the ambient keyboard textures unmistakable and the psychedelic rushes of their vocal phrasings make for an arresting listen. It is ostensibly an electronic record, but there is a rock sensibility hiding within its layers.

The minute they kick in with the mid-tempo rhythm of “Dancing on Flat Earth”, you know that these guys just have such a fresh sound that they will pull you in and hypnotize you with their beats and lyrics. Modern and yet nostalgic sounding, there is a slight Bono-ish lilt in the voice, as the music carries you away on it swaying rhythm and sprawling arrangement.

No one else currently really sounds like NothingDark, who wield, quite majestically, both astute hind and foresight. Every song on this EP is a potential earworm. NothingDark’s songs are both intensely atmospheric and totally accessible.

The bass line alone on “Look Away Look Around” is worth the price of the EP, and a riff I wish I had written. This low rolling rumble gets right under your skin and drives the song beyond mesmeric. It swirls and pops, clicks and snaps into a whirling vortex of groove.

Here the trio provide us with a sophisticated-palate blend of sonic pleasures. This track is close to being the best of the bunch. Certainly it is the most bass-heavy of the bunch – the beat is deep and sticky, pairing with the driving percussion to form a sonic honeycomb. Gorgeous and dark, the vocals too, are absolutely mesmerizing.

It’s this structural mastery, combined with the sort of impressionistic shards of synth and melody that NothingDark are so good at, that leads the EP towards the descriptions of “atmospheric” and “visual”.

Close your eyes with “More Ups Than Downs” coursing through your ears, and you’ll feel as if you can touch every sonic layer the song breathes. Steamy drums flourish in an ever thickening sound palette supporting the mellifluous lyrical shimmy. It is magnificent. Naturally, the whole thing demonstrates guile.

What pushes NothingDark above the pack, besides the beats, is its casually, strutting vocal melody; an intertwined chain of words that wriggle around the cranium. Those captivating traits surface on “Coldblood”, and with it, NothingDark takes you away – to the past, to the future, or to where you want to be.

“Tragicomedy” sees the band at their most lucid, melodically and rhythmically. They have crystallized their sonic vision into an ideal form of intellectually and emotionally satisfying music. Definitely a must have for any at all interested in synth driven indie-rock music.

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.

When looking at the official Billboard charts in recent years, it’s clear that there are a number of foreign acts at any time. Be it Drake (Canada), Five Seconds of Summer (Australia), Adele (U.K.) or Niall Horan (Ireland), a lot of foreign music pop music can be found and is loved by American music fans. However, artists from a certain region are not commonly seen in US charts: Asia.

 Analyn Almerino

Analyn Almerino

By now, everyone has at least heard about BTS but compared to other nation’s representation in North America, Japanese artists are still the exception rather than the rule. This is bound to change, according to Vancouver based Rufus Lin Productions.

The music label and production house made it their mission to bring authentic Japanese Pop music to the US and Canadian mainstream market. Their first project is called Analyn Almerino.

The 18 year old singer, born in the Philippines, brought to Japan at age six, already has an impressive track record in Japan. At the tender age of 14, she won Nippon TV’s talent show “All Japan Singing Talent Competition – Singing King”, beating over 6,000 contestants on live TV in front of a national audience.

Three years later, in 2017, Analyn entered yet another talent show, this time by Japanese TV station ASAHI TV, once again winning the hearts of the audience and jury and taking home the grand prize.

Having just graduated from high school, Analyn can now fully focus on her music career. Analyn’s and her label’s plan is to export catchy Electro Pop with English lyrics, performed by one of Japan’s most promising up and coming singers.

You can follow Analyn’s journey on her Facebook page or on her website.

“Chutney Chasers” is just one volume of aVIE’s upcoming project, aVIEonearth, which documents a common man’s life on Earth. Each part of the project that he releases will explore its own world of emotions.  As it relates to R&B, this is music of the future, steeped in the rhythms and sonics of the today, ingeniously invented for a 21st century audience. It will surely be appreciated by your ears, and you’ll find that after giving this a spin, it has in many ways changed your conception of R&B and music overall. A Classic. This dark and experimental urban recording, refined with electronics, is space age technology left to us by some alien teleported into aVIE’s body. It is truly a work of indie art, whichever way you look at it. And you will find yourself lost in every song without knowing really if you’re in a chorus or verse, but you won’t want to turn it off. One of “Chutney Chasers” greatest strength lies in aVIE’s understanding of how to create mood by weaving an impossibly complex instrumental palette, as he explores the adventures of his life.

The sounds seem representative of staggeringly diverse bodies of work, and yet none of them jar or sound misplaced; they’re all on the same mission, which is to contribute to an atmosphere of creeping disquiet. The EP’s clash of styles, both instrumentally and tonally create a psychedelic claustrophobia that is entirely representative of the narratives.

The genius of this record is that aVIE has managed to apply those sonic intricacies to his thematic approach. Everything from aVIE’s voice to the crackle of the snare and thump of the bass drum is treated with a delicate mastery, by the musician based out Houston, TX.

This 6 track package so sultry on the ear that spinning this record feels like both a carnal and otherworldly experience. When the opening title track arrives, there is no fanfare. No hyped statement of purpose or musical parting of the clouds. What we get is a warm keyboard intro, an errant bass slap, and panning jerky drums.

The man’s voice is multitudinous and angular when he sings: “nine out of ten times, I think she cares for me.” You reel amidst the splendor of this track, as you try to make sense of it, then give up and relax into the pocket of a perfect groove that’s already there.

And in that commitment to upholding the groove, we find warmth and evidence that we’re still moving forward despite the assault on our senses. Dark though it may be, the music itself invites repeated listens and rewards with serious loveliness. “Tapwater” is a surging mass of new soul built from classic thought and a rebel spirit – an unending angst and beautiful struggle.

“The Self” sparks the renaissance of slow-jam, melody driven soul, in a futuristic space, with its velvety harmonies, erudite instrumental and bombast. “New Feathers” is somehow the past, present, and future all in one. Both narcotic and weary, it feels like a living, breathing organism that mutates and grows.

The beauty of this record is in the balance: between the technical and the personal, certainly, but also between tightly constructed harmonies and melodies, and the more free-flowing sense of rhythm. “Midnight Oil” sees aVIE venture into rap territory, and it’s successful to a surprising degree.

The acoustic driven “Take Care” benefits from being so poignant, relaxed, and seductive at the same time. This is the track that gives the best shine to aVIE’s vocal textures, as it’s the most stripped down. All-round though, “Chutney Chasers” confirms that music holds the power to challenge and comfort, to take us someplace spiritual and existential. It’s beautifully, devastatingly human. Its aVIE’s life story.

Soms was born in New York, though he left when he was young and moved to Florida and grew up in West Palm Beach, FL. He started music when he was 7 and learned how to play and read music in 2nd grade. He started as a singer before he became a rapper and used to perform in plays and at concerts. Soms made his first song at 14 and started to link with, up-and-comers from Florida. He used to work and be managed by Lil Pump and Smokepurrp’s old manager. He did my first show at 16 where he opened up for XXXtentaciona and Wifisfuneral. Soms is the owner and CEO of True Undiscovered Talent LLC.

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

Soms: I’ve been in the music business since I was 14. I was always involved with music since I was young, playing instruments and singing, but my first step into rapping was when I released a remix to Bobby Shmurda’s “Hot Ni**a”.

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

Soms: My first musical influences were Frank Sinatra, Lil Wayne, and Michael Jackson. My strongest influence of the three is probably Lil Wayne because as a kid his music and storytelling captivated me and made me want to be a rapper.

  1. If any, which artists do you currently respect in the game, and are listening to right now?

Soms: Honestly I fuck with the new wave of artists but it’s not really for me so I wouldn’t say I respect any of them, but I do respect the OGs in the game. As far as what I’m listening to it consists of a lot of vibes. I just like to smoke and vibe out but recently I’ve been listening to myself a lot.

  1. What do you feel are the key elements people should be getting out of your music?

Soms: I’m just telling my story and talking about what I’m going through and how I’m feeling. I just want people to be able to relate my music to their own lives while getting to feel like they know me and feel me through the music.

  1. What do you think separates you from the massive crowd of up and coming young artists emerging right now?

Soms: I’m not with the fuck shit. I can’t put it simpler than that. I’m blunt, straight to the point and honest sometimes to a fault, and I can confidently say that I’m nothing like these other artist and hopefully people will come to realize that.

  1. As the owner and CEO of True Undiscovered Talent LLC, could you tell us something about this project?

Soms: Well it started as just me feeling like no one was listening to my music or paying attention to me even though I feel like I have a lot to offer. I just used that concept as motivation to push myself to make noise and get people to pay attention to my music. I made it into an official Record Label/Clothing Line where I have me and my artist Langston Brady signed to it and have been releasing hoodies and shirts.

  1. How did you get to open for XXXtentacion and Wifisfuneral at 16, and what was the experience like for you?

Soms: Well I can only thank my good friend and ex- manager Mateo Dorado for that. He saw my potential and really helped me get my foot in the door in the music industry and got me a little 15-20 min slot opening up for Wifi and X. That was a crazy experience for me especially at 16, I had just gotten kicked out of my house and was on some crazy shit doing whatever I wanted. I got all my friends to come out and support, and they got on stage with me, it was crazy. It’s crazy to think that X was an influential part of my career and we never even got to officially meet and connect…man R.I.P X.

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

Soms: Well the first thing that comes to my mind is my first song to hit 100,000 plays on soundcloud which was my hit song “Drip”, right now it probably has around 450,000 plays and counting. Another favorite part of my career has been opening up for worldwide famous artists and performing in front of all those people.

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

Soms: People aren’t really there for you how they say they are. Once they get what they needed from you it’s just on to the next person and so on. I’m a really genuine and honest guy even the its bad stuff and the fact that people in this business can’t be straight up and instead just lie and use people for their own benefit is so lame to me.

  1. What key ingredients do you always try and infuse into your music?

Soms: I always try to keep my music authentic, every line of every song is based on truth and something I’ve done or am going through myself. My music is like a melodic book telling the story of my life.

  1. Do you produce the beats and write the lyrics on your songs or do you collaborate with outside sources in any of these cases?

Soms: I get my beats from different producers I talk to or I get them off of Youtube but that’s really the only collaboration I do because I write all my own songs, I record them in my home studio, and I engineer them all myself too, it’s all a one man show once I have the beat.

  1. What is your personal opinion of the status of the Rap and Hip-hop game right now?

Soms: It depends on what you’re looking at. All the mainstream artists that are coming out right now are absolute garbage, lil pump, lil xan, etc. so I choose not to listen to them and go beyond just the mainstream, and what you’ll find out is that there are a lot of really fucking good artists out there now that are going to bring the culture back once this bullshit wave dies down and hits shore.

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

Soms: The most exciting part is being able to do music however I want and take career in any direction. The only things that really discourages me is when I work with people in the industry they all have more of a leg up because of their label or connections and such which makes them not have to work as hard and it makes me feel like I’m getting looked over or passed up on just because I don’t have a deal or a major cosign, but after a getting burned a couple times it just made me work harder and gave me the motivation to make it even more on my own.

  1. Are you happy about how the music business works right now, or is there something you would change?

Soms: I wish the music business was based on talent and potential, not likes and followers. The best artists could be right under your nose with 2k followers and society will completely write them off as garbage, meanwhile some bullshit artists repeating the same line over and over with 15k-20k will get more attention because of the image and the numbers. There’s so much good music out there and people are missing out getting caught up in the hype.

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

Soms: Melodic, Vulnerable, Jiggy and Honest. Its music for if you feel alone know that someone feels you, or if you wanna vibe out wit ya friends, or if you just like nice sounds. My music is all about creating a vibe and making people feel. Like actual feel.

  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?

Soms: It is  a key part of being an artist today and me personally I suck at social media and it has been a detriment to my career because I haven’t given myself all the exposure that I could have if I had managed my social media better.

  1. What is your latest release called and where can fans find it?

Soms: My latest EP was the “Let Me Help You Out With That” EP and fans can find it on soundcloud now. But recently I’ve started releasing new music every Monday as part of my “New Music Monday’s” series and will be continuing to release a new song every week on soundcloud so fans can look forward to a lot of new music from me.

  1. What is your relationship with visual media? Do you think videos are important for your music? Do you have a video you would recommend fans checkout so they can get in to what you’re doing?

Soms: When it comes to my visuals I’ve been blessed with one of the best videographers in the game with Winchoz (@winchoz). He’s been a good friend and has always supported my music since the jump and he handles all of my visual content for my music. Visual media is good for capturing someone’s attention quickly rather than just a picture so I use it to help people get a visual of the person behind the mic as well as give them something to look at while they listen to the song. I would recommend watching my “Pull Up” and “Dreams” videos which are on Youtube right now if you search Soms, and I have some new videos coming on the way so they can watch out for those too

  1. Do you prefer working and creating in a studio environment, or performing live in front of an audience?

Soms: I prefer working and creating in the studio. I’m really reserved and to myself so I like to just be focused and comfortable creating and just letting vibes flow whether it be alone in the studio or with a couple friends. Don’t get me wrong though I love to perform I just don’t like being in the club or the venue after my performance is done. I just go perform, take some pictures, and then leave cause I wanna go chill and vibe out.

  1. What’s next potential milestone on the upcoming agenda for Soms?

Soms: A LOT of new Music, new videos, new merch, and working on going on a nationwide tour in 2019. There is a lot coming that people don’t expect and I can’t wait to shock them when it happens.

Up and coming rapper Drippy Boy Water. Part of the duo Drippy Kids with Money Kid, is here to talk about his upcoming EP “Tragedy”.

  1. What is your real name?

Drippy Boy Water: Kevin Mohl.

  1. Where you from?

Drippy Boy Water: Originally From Pottsville, Pennsylvania.

  1. How have you been doing this past week with the whole Sick Nick beef and everything?

Drippy Boy Water: Just been chilling. Really. Waiting for him to say something but he hasn’t yet.

  1. What caused the beef between you two?

Drippy Boy Water: I really don’t remember of the top of my head. I think it was because he asked (my brother) for input and he gave his opinion on his video and he got all salty.

  1. And you guys never met or talked to each other, correct?

Drippy Boy Water: Yes.

  1. What would you do if you see him in the streets?

Drippy Boy Water: For real, for real, we would fight because all the shit he be talking like you don’t wanna see me on the block and shit.

  1. What rappers/music artists inspired you the most?

Drippy Boy Water: I’d have to say a lot of lyrical rappers like Eminem, J. Cole, and Kendrick [Lamar] and some mumble rap, mainly, Lil Uzi [Vert], Migos, and X [XXXTentacion].

  1. Yeah I saw you were a fan of Tyler’s, not your bother, Tyler The Creator. Does some of his music impact you?

Drippy Boy Water: Yeah, most definitely I am a fan of Tyler, The Creator. He is a great, talented artist and he had a decent impact on me.

  1. How did it feel when the popular Twitter user Memolovedemi tweeted out your diss towards Sick Nick and her calling you Good Looking?

Drippy Boy Water: I mean it made me happy that my first actual song could spread a little bit and of course, I was excited when someone called me good looking. (Laughs)

  1. Let me go back to the Sick Nick beef because I was kinda wondering this. If he wanted to, would you talk to him on the phone and make peace with him?

Drippy Boy Water: I would definitely take the chance to talk to him, maybe like in an interview. For right now though, I’m not sure about making peace with him because he’s already in his grave, if you know what I mean.

  1. It’s been a really sad year when we lost XXXTentacion and Mac Miller. With them passing away, was it hard dealing with that? I know you said that X inspired a lot of your music?

Drippy Boy Water: Most definitely, they are both some of my favorite artists and if I had the chance, I would bring them back to life. R.I.P. Mac. R.I.P. X. I did have a hard time dealing with that, but they’re both sober now.

  1. Do you think that Hip Hop should stop promoting drug use, especially after we lost Lil Peep and with the whole drug problem in the United States with 72,000 people who died from overdosing?

Drippy Boy Water: It really all depends on the situation. Some of the rappers right now would be garbage without drugs, but yeah I think so because rap should be used to inspire people and not cause death.

  1. What really frustrates you the most about Hip Hop that’s going on right now?

Drippy Boy Water: Probably on how people think that Tekashi 6ix9ine is a straight bar hitter. That’s a straight lie. In my opinion, I think he’s garbage.

  1. In another interview, you were asked if you support President Donald Trump and you said no. We haven’t really seen you talk too much about him. What is it about Trump that infuriates you?

Drippy Boy Water: Just the racism, really. I know my history. Without a doubt, we wouldn’t have the United States of America without the immigrants. Like dude, they’re the ones that are making you money. Also, the whole Muslim bullshit too like who the fuck gives a fuck about what they believe in, let them do their thing.

  1. Why do you not mention Donald Trump in your raps?

Drippy Boy Water: Because there’s no point anymore. He’s gonna be off the presidential board soon anyways.

  1. So do you find him to be bluntly racist towards Latinos, African Americans, and Muslims?

Drippy Boy Water: Yeah.

  1. Okay, off the negative stuff. Let’s talk about Tragedy. Is their release date for that?

Drippy Boy Water: Nope. I want it to be a surprise when it comes out.

  1. I just found your twitter and saw it now. What’s the meaning behind your album cover?

Drippy Boy Water: Drug abuse and what can happen since they guy crashed a nice car and that’s one of the meanings behind it. That you could crash when smoking a blunt, injecting drugs, or whatever you do.

  1. Well I’m excited to hear it. How many songs will we hear on it?

Drippy Boy Water:  There will be three including a bonus track, which is Nick’s Grave. (Tragedy EP tracklist listed below).

  1. Tragic
  2. Hard Hitters
  3. Drugs Are The End
  4. Nick’s Grave (Bonus)

Singer-songwriter, Roddan’s third and current release, “Don’t Be Troubled” is a follow-up to his 2017 EP, “Bleed 432”, and his 2016 Album, “Music House”. The recording features organic instrumentation, including guitar, piano, violin, cello, piano, and some great harmonies from Eliza Gilkyson. But it also carries the burden of a troubled time. “The year 2017 and the first few months of 2018 while writing these songs, was a troubled time for me to say the least,” explains Roddan, continuing: “All of the sudden, it seemed people and animal’s close to me were dying. In addition, an ex-girlfriend (a talented singer) whom I met and lived with in Nashville, committed suicide. And most recently, I came close to death myself, and went through a major surgery.” It’s worth pointing out at this point that despite Roddan’s recent troubled existence and his evident gravitation towards the melancholy, there is nothing in any way monochrome or depressing about his music.

Roddan tells his story in a meticulous format and makes the lyrics all the more important. He sentimental writing shows throughout the record, while juxtapositions are commonplace in a recording that is original, enticing, and mesmerizing to experience. All songs mesh together and aid in the overall emotional trek. The first song and title track, “Don’t Be Troubled” tells three different mini stories, according to the narrator.

The first tells of love lost and the regrets about things he’d wished he had said. The second about immortality, and the pain that comes with the inevitability of our mortality. The third tells of a woman who has the beautiful wedding, only to later realize that she doesn’t love the person she married.

The song fundamentally follows the narrator’s psychological observations of the events around him. Shifting perspectives allow listeners to observe the intimacy of the narrative Roddan so impeccably penned.

Eliza Gilkyson wraps us into the song’s wistfulness with a haunting and intoxicating backing vocal. “Judyann”, the second song is a tribute to Roddan’s mother who passed away as he was working on this record. He was able to find some recordings of her with her family, and added them to the end of the track.

The intricacies that make Roddan’s songwriting both pleasant and meaningful remain fully intact here. His ability to make a song sound intimate and personal, is only brought into a finer light with this track. He portrays love, loss, and heartbreak in a way that eschews oppressive morbidity.

No matter how fleshed-out the production is, every song finds its basic structure in the guitar. In this foundation, the album never forgets Roddan’s introspective, reserved manner, and he makes sure that he never loses sight of his own personal integrity.

The third song, “Leaving Today” is a duet with Eliza Gilkyson, which affronts the theme of a relationship beyond repair. As if the brilliant music composition and lyrics were not enough, Eliza and Roddan add a complete second and third dimension to the song with their complementary vocal styles, bring the complete package to the track.

The last song, “Can’t Feel A Thing – Live” features Roddan playing rhythm on a Gibson 12-string, while Rick Del Castillo plays lead on a six-string Taylor acoustic. Recorded live in Austin, TX, this is a stomping acoustic blues track about being ‘emotionally numb in a relationship’. This is a song with a strong upbeat vibe that sounds deceptively positive but it’s a grueling affair.

The two players set a powerful tone in an impeccable performance. The marriage here on a musical level, is inspired. As is true of all great songwriters who write from a personal place, to love Roddan’s music is to relate to him. “Don’t Be Troubled” successfully enhances and humbly strengthens the despair, passion, and sentiment in Roddan’s songwriting for this set.

BlowinMaddTrees are the kind of rappers you want to hang out with. They’re chilled out guys who usually rhyme about what they love most: hedonistic experiences and the finest Kush. They’ll probably never reach mainstream status, but they seem to like it that way. Their introspective and sometimes unabashed lyrics coupled with their mischievous grins, make them likable rap everymen. Uprooted from Texas to Colorado, BlowinMaddTrees is made of Johhnie Blaze’d & Jay Deezl, aka TheDankestDuo. The duo states that this single means a lot to them, because it is the first track they have done together in over 3 years. It is also the lead-up single to their EP “ThaTrifecta” which they’re currently working on.

On their latest single, “The Scent”, BlowinMaddTrees don’t stray too far from their niche laid-back vibe. They know what works for them. So this is smoke and ride music. The duo bounce off each other and it’s a fun listen with a warm and smooth keyboard dominated production. The duo just roll their shit and smoke it, sounding like the coolest motherfuckers in the place.

It’s a rare thing to treasure in the age of self-proclaimed musical geniuses, selfies, and artists who fight their own fans. BlowinMaddTrees’ insidious intentions on “The Scent” are very smooth. There`s no better word explaining the feeling. It`s raw, soulful and dope at the same time. You won`t even feel the drag from the slow-motioned roll.

I realize you might think that this doesn’t sound particularly innovative. Marijuana has been exhausted as a song topic and rappers who talk about pussy are like music critics who talk about Kendrick Lamar. But BlowinMaddTrees pull it off through pure charisma and skill.

By the end of its four minutes your stoner friends will have found something real groovy to distract them from their daily grinds. “The Scent” is never more than a step away from something entertaining, and putting it into rotation will brighten up even a straight-edge person’s day.

The beat and the overall sound on the track is just immaculate. The entire recording is dripping with shimmering keys, understated soulful choruses, and some low slung bass and drum kicks. Clearly much time and effort was put into crafting the sound for this song.

The results really speak for themselves. It should go without saying that BlowinMaddTrees’ definitely know how to cook up a tasty dish. The duo are most definitely inventors when it comes to the world of hip-hop, but they stay within their hemisphere when they’re doing their weed rap.  Their lyrics could kill most beats if the situation came to it, but they retain their laid back feel on “The Scent”.

“The Scent” is not the object of simple lines, but of an entire song that showcases Johhnie Blaze’d & Jay Deezl’s cleverly structured storytelling and open thinking, as well as their wordsmith skills. I’m sure any slightest fan of hip-hop music won’t mind bumping this in the car or at home while chilling.

You won’t find repetitive and monotonous wordplay, instead “The Scent” feels something like a stress-relieving cipher, a conversation with a good friend you bump into after a few years. So sit down, give this track a spin, and be prepared for some quality entertainment.

Independent singers who make music that isn’t in the mainstream are rising in numbers. Indie musicians cum singers often have something celebrity singers don’t have – making music out of pure love and passion for the art. They also help others to materialize their musicality in any way they can. One such singer is Plan – his real name is Harvey Dowell V. Fenellere and his new E.P “Expresso” is set to be released later this year. The genre of Plan’s music is modern hip hop soul and his music speaks of the reality of how a man decides for himself.

Plan was born and raised in the Philippines. He moved to California, the United States when he was 20, with the intent of chasing his American dream of becoming a music maker. Plan’s musical journey began when he was in his native country itself – he was singing for a metal band in high school and college. Besides performing in bars, the band Plan was in took part in many rock band competitions. The experience gave Plan a pretty solid foundation in the art of making music.

Equipped with nothing but a burning desire and his experience in music back in his home country, Plan started a solo career as an underground rapper in America. He released several music tracks and E.P independently – they provided a base for him to work further into his music, experimenting and creating fresh tunes. Plan then changed the genre of his music and decided to pursue his singing career and also start producing his own instrumental and music. And that’s when he started to reach out to people.

Plan took the avatar of a producer and became a source of medium to make music for those people who can’t afford a studio recording – he provided the means for them to record their songs on his instrumentals. His ability to help others create music gave him much satisfaction and he was also working on his first album, “Bedroom Stories” which he released in the year 2017 under his real name, Harvey Fenellere.

But it wasn’t all rainbows and unicorns for Harvey Fenellere. Unstable income and lack of money to even sustain himself beset him. Due to financial limitations he stopped promoting his songs and then ended up penniless and eventually, homeless. Homelessness pushed Harvey Fenellere aka Plan to pounce on every opportunity he got to establish himself in every way, particularly in making music. He was determined to make his distinct musicality his identity despite the odds he was facing.

Finally, when he got the chance to make music again, he came up with a new E.P “Expresso” which is scheduled to be released at the end of this year. Harvey says, “Despite being alone without help from anyone, in a new country and unfamiliar environment, I managed to create something that will be a stepping stone for me. I wanted to prove myself so badly, I risked everything I have in my life including my loved ones. I’m selfish when it comes to time but I am humble and generous enough about my knowledge to share with others.”

Harvey V. Fenellere aka Plan’s music is to inspire to cultivate a critical mind to the listeners and to kindle imagination of a story to relate to. He is also looking forward to work with different artists especially the ones he looks up to. Plan quips, “Expect more music from me.” It sounds like a plan indeed.

Plan has a brand new single out, entitled, “Invisible” which can be streamed and downloaded on multiple platforms to be found HERE.

Exit 22 Music: “Lesson Learned” – another phenomenal project! http://jamsphere.com/reviews/exit-22-music-lesson-learned-another-phenomenal-project http://jamsphere.com/reviews/exit-22-music-lesson-learned-another-phenomenal-project#respond Sat, 13 Oct 2018 11:10:28 +0000 http://jamsphere.com/?p=33325 Chris Calamera’s songwriting and production is what distances him from his pop and rock peer group.

Chris Calamera’s songwriting and production is what distances him from his pop and rock peer group. He isn’t too big on image, but big on production. What he does is continue to be himself, he lives his brand by not following fickle trends, and stays true to himself. Chris and his music production company, Exit 22 Music know exactly who they are, and what is important, and hence record amazing, timeless music with their crew of collaborators. The music production company’s blend of pop, rock and dance beats has the ability to capture the listener’s attention, both musically and lyrically. All of which are topped with superb vocal performances and can be heard on songs like “Break These Chains”, “The Magic In You”, and “Before I Fall”.

The new single, “Lesson Learned” is a real pop-rock gem that’s more nuanced and better crafted than most modern pop. The music and performances are so enticing. It also feels like the type of track that’s going to show us more layers, the more it’s played. Chris once again engages a great female singer for the lead role.

Chris Calamera of Exit 22 Music

She is in total control of her gorgeous instrument. And upon repeated listening of the single, the superb vocals, the catchy hooks and great lyrics will start to embed themselves into your brain. And, like a crack addiction, you will have to go back for more and listen, again and again.

“Lesson Learned” is another phenomenal project by perhaps one of the strongest indie pop-rock songwriters and producers around today. There are few musical creatives who I automatically give a pass, Chris Calamera and his Exit 22 Music project is one. He seems to come up with exceptional material time after time.

His productions have all the expertise of superstar material. This track has it all, voice, production, and mainstream appeal. “Lesson Learned” moves from initial vulnerability to being very empowering and moving. A mature songwriter and producer, confidence and commitment oozes from every orifice in Calamera’s creations.

Taking into account narrative songwriting, thematic production and a dramatic, emotive performance, Exit 22 Music has easily met its goal of producing an all-embracing track. Pair the technical importance and urgency with a charged vocal performance, and you have yourself a winning combination.

The narrative too, is extremely relatable. Removing herself from a dysfunctional relationship, the singer begins to realize and embrace the strength she’s gained from the experience. The pain is translated into pride and confidence as a soaring vocal performance emboldens the new woman emerging from the ashes. The commitment is supported by stellar vocal performance

Chris Calamera makes it clear yet again that his project Exit 22 Music, is here to stay and continues to develop with each release. “Lesson Learned” doesn’t reinvent any genre, nor does it try to, but it portrays an artist continuing to redefine himself – in the process, solidifying his position as one of his generation’s most interesting underground talents.

International, South African born singer-songwriter and influencer Ranwin Le-Roy (24) released his debut single Painting the Canvas March 15th 2018 and is exactly where he wants to do be for now. This Pop/Rnb singer has risen onto the French Charts according to PureBreak charts and has been in studio working alongside Advent on his debut album. Were excited to hear what he will do next since Painting the Canvas was such an interesting turn; heart-breaking yet hard hitting with a Pop/Hip-Hop twist. He wrote exceptional lyrics to this song based on his breakup which according to him was not pretty at all.

Now, those who know Ranwin Le-Roy he has quite a strong personality and this can also be seen on his social media. This has caught the attention of many influencers, fans or as he says,*friends. We asked Ranwin how he copes with having had to do shows, recording and having to have gone to university over the years and his reply was, It was extremely difficult but I knew what I wanted and I wasn’t going to stop until I had my degree in Psychology and Sociology and continued my passion; which is music. I wanted to prove to the world that education is just as important as your dreams and it is our job to inspire every generation that is to come.

Painting the Canvas was Ranwin Le-Roys way of showing his vulnerability to the world and that he is in tune with his emotions. He later said, People will be shocked by how controversial my album will be, because I speak about body positivity, shady friends and family in our lives, more heartbreak and being a boss lady/gentleman which everyone can relate to. My music isn’t only for me, it’s for every kind of heart I know.

Ranwin Le-Roy continues to explain, I experienced such an intense heartbreak and this was because I was in love and got to experience an indescribable kind of love which left me scarred. I met Author, Adam Rabinowitz on a flight to Dubai. I told him and his amazing wife about my breakup and he ended up writing one of the songs that will be on my album. This is the only song not written by me; I mean I edited and added here and there but it’s basically written in the exact words of how I felt and it broke my heart all over again reading it.

We’ve done some digging and noticed that Ranwin Le-Roy is being followed by quite an extensive celebrity list of friends and acquaintances; television personality, businesswoman, socialite, model and singer Paris Hilton who we all know is one of his biggest role models, the Awkward MTV television star Monty Geer, TV Host Darren Kennedy, Artist and Podcast host Jody Steel who seems to be a really great friend of his, Lifestyle coach Dani Stevens, Singer-Songwriter Cooper Phillips, Singer TJ Hickey, the pranksters eighty83three Belle and Jadeey, influencer Janette Ewen and many more.

We tried fishing for features on his upcoming album and we know Jody Steel will contribute in some way to his debut album but doesn’t have anything to do with what she regularly does. This is interesting because Steel is not a singer or is she? Cooper Phillips and Ranwin Le-Roy communicates quite often and she is most likely to be featured on his album. This will be absolutely amazing because Ranwin Le-Roy is a powerhouse and so is Cooper Phillips; trust me on this, you will want to hear this.

Ranwin mentioned that there will be a feature that he cannot mention at this time but it’ll leave everyone shocked. I know it leaves a lot of room for speculation. Now, although Nicki Minaj does not follow Ranwin Le-Roy on Instagram we’ve seen them interact with one another many times before as Ranwin Le-Roy said,  I stan Nicki Minaj, Queen is such a revelation and it’s a goal of mine to work with her. I won’t use the word dream because I’m working hard towards that. We know Paris Hilton follows him on Instagram, so it could definitely be her. Who knows, we’ll have to wait.

The debut album has no specific date yet but we know it’s going to be good and we know it’s coming soon. If you haven’t heard Ranwin Le-Roys debut Single Painting the Canvas, listen now!

In the midst of his highly-anticipated Fall Tour, which includes U.S. and U.K. dates and even a show with multi-platinum selling band Candlebox, Indie Rocker Pete RG has unveiled the debut single from his upcoming album Whatever We Want, Whenever We Want.

Entitled Watching The River Go By,  the single debuted October 5 and RG says that, like the rest of the new songs from the forthcoming album, the first track is influenced by the volatile time in which we live especially with regards to the lyrics.

The song features RG on lead vocals, rhythm guitars and keys, Dave Krusen (Original Pearl Jam Drummer and Hall of Fame Inductee) on drums, Adam Kury (Candlebox Bassist) on bass, Kevin Haaland (Former Skillet Guitarist) on lead guitar as well as some keys, and Brina Kabler on keys and background vocals. It was recorded and mixed in Rgs personal studio, 4L Studios, in Santa Monica by RG and Kabler.

All of the new songs are more intense and are a reflection of a band growing closer, personally, and more collaborative, musically, said RG. With the new collection, I really just wanted people to feel inspired. Inspired to do more, to think more, to enjoy more; perhaps.

Watching The River Go By is available on all major platforms and through the web site at

https://www.pete-rg.com.

Pete RG has also released a lyric video for the single, which is available here:
