Jan Helge “Janco” Nes from Kristiansand, Norway, is a resilient character, with an ardent fervor for making music, and a knack for helping fellow artists achieve their goals. Janco was a retired keyboard player, songwriter and producer who had to quit because of health problems years ago. However thanks to medical care and painkillers, he is now back on track to pursue his passion. He has launched a site called musicforsongwriters, with the intention to help singers, lyricists, and melodists to compose and complete their songs in blazing fast time. How? Janco provides a complete premade musical backing track. All you need to do is add the lead vocal, harmonies and whatever embellishments you believe will push your song to the next level, and the job’s done!

The process is more commonly known as ‘toplining’. As the website explains: “A topliner is someone who writes lyrics and melody to existing music.” An absolute peculiarity of musicforsongwriters, as opposed to its competitors, is that while other music providers’ “royalty free music” is copyrighted by someone else, the music on musicforsongwriters, is 100% self-produced and therefore can be licensed to be used in this manner. The music can also be used as background music on YouTube etc. These tracks will make your music clean and perfect. It makes them sound expertly performed.

The website has a vast music library to choose from in various music styles. You can purchase single tracks, or you can even purchase diverse bundle deals, including their whopping entire catalog at stunning discount prices offered by musicforsongwriters on their music library pages. You can obtain legal licenses to these tracks there and then get to keep 100% of the rights to the finished song(s) you produce, no matter how many sales or streams. It’s really that simple my friends.

Once you purchase the music and rights, you can add your voice or instrument to the premade backing track, and you are ready to publish it to the world. Furthermore you can publish the song(s) in any way you see fit since you own 100% of the rights. Yes, you can do exactly as you want.

Upload it to YouTube, sell it on your own website, or commercialize it on other music selling platforms. It really doesn’t get easier than that for singers, lyricists, and melodists to get their songs out there in the cheapest, fastest, and most hassle-free way possible.

Jan Helge “Janco” Nes has really done a sterling job in offering a much needed service to fellow singers, writers and performers. This really is one of the quickest, cheapest and problem free services of its kind I have come across on the web.

Not satisfied, in their quest to convince artists of their goodwill, musicforsongwriters is now offering (for a limited time period only!) a crazy bundle deal which includes a complete music library of 222 songs – which has a market value of $4428 – for only $97!! The tracks in this set are made available in the highest MP3-quality (320kbps), and are ready for download now!

If you’re still here reading this, and haven’t shot over to musicforsongwriters to check out the service and deals for yourself, you’re wasting precious time in moving ahead of your competitors and getting your professionally completed songs out there to the crowds now.

Reggae artiste Nature Ellis was once touted as the next big thing in reggae music. The singer got off to a blazing start in the industry, but eventually fell off the grid and has been relatively quiet for some time. Determined to make a comeback on the music scene, the singer recently released a new Single “Love Me” produced by Drew Stewart on the Then Now and Forever Label.

Nature believes this project has what it takes to jump-start his musical revival. The “Love Me” single is the first release off upcoming EP Drew Stewart presents Reggae from East Kingston. The single is now available on all digital platforms.

MORE ABOUT Nature Ellis:  Andre Ellis, more popularly known as Nature, is a free-spirited individual and positive songwriter who delivers his music with great passion. He hails from the beautiful parish of St. James in Jamaica and is known for singles such as “Wasting Time”, “World Peace” and ‘Love You’. Nature has been involved in music since he was nine years old.

The singer has received various accolades for his music including the best singer award at the Eastern Awards in 2008 and a trophy for his singing and songwriting in a competition put on in St James by Danger Zone in 2002.

With a name that signifies his love for the environment, Nature started getting serious about his career in 2002. Since then, he has recorded with Big Ship, King Jammy’s, Truckback Records and Ricardo Gardener’s Heart of Love Music label.

Nature also has a number of other songs out such as “Cry Out”, “Most High God’ and “Dirty Closet’, which was featured in the popular roots play, Talk Done, Time For Action. Nature’s move from St James to St Andrew has helped to propel his career over the last few years, racking up gigs at Sting, GT Extravaganza, Reggae Sumfest, Champions In Action and island Explosion to name a few.

On the strength of these singles, Nature has been touring extensively; he did three month stints in Europe where he did shows in France, Italy, Germany, Belgium and Switzerland. His most recent tour took him to Australia where he did a number of shows.

Representing a new generation of reggae that keeps in the tradition of crooners who came before and inspire him, including Bob Marley, Dennis Brown, Beres Hammond and Toots Hibbert, Nature continues to bring a fresh voice to the genre.

Austin Findley is from the Midwest. Born on August 13th, 1997 to a family from the country, He was raised in small towns around Mid-Missouri. He started learning music theory at age 14, when he began playing with a program called LMMS. He says that his unique style is a result of listening to hours of music. He grew to love The Stone Roses, for their dance-able rhythm, trippy vocals, and psychedelic guitar sounds. David Bowie taught Austin the art of singing and changing with the seasons. Lou Reed & The Velvet Underground influenced his views on poetry, music, and art. Iggy Pop, Van Morrison, The Rolling Stones, & Led Zeppelin also added some depth to his music. But that was only the start, as he has since added a wealth of musical talent to his influences; going from jazz musicians to classical music, as well as rap artists such as Eminem, Nas, Kendrick Lamar and Madvillan. Check out Austin’s website, for more information and a list of his music, books and merchandise.

  1. When and how did you get started making music? And are you self-taught or did you have any formal training?

Austin Findley: I started making music in 2012. I was fourteen at the time and going to school at Lewis and Clark. In my free time, I would play on my computer; making simple melodies on the keyboard. When I decided that I would be a musician that was when I started making music. Seven years later, and I’m still a musician.

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

Austin Findley: Eminem and Fall Out Boy. My current musical taste is a lot different than it was then. I went through a phase where I would listen to hours of music a day. I used a database called: besteveralbums.com. They rate albums based on a mathematical formula; not opinions.

  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?

Austin Findley: That’s true. I learned by doing and emulating the artists around me. My sound and genre changed within a span of three years. Before I was Austin Findley the Songwriter, I was Knackmintosh the Rapper. I felt that rapping and singing would contradict each other, so I began to rap less and sing more. Since Jazz and Classical numbers rarely feature vocals, I rarely sing. I still sing baritone. As I would listen to highly rated music, my style would change. The musical qualities are set in stone now. If a horde of masterpieces could grace my presence, I may change with the times. Right now, it’s mostly Hip-hop and Dream Pop.

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

Austin Findley: Introspection. There are aspects of my music that people like and dislike. Since my art is done at home, there are imperfections. Those imperfections can be discussed and debated. Top 40 Radio never has quirks like the ones listed above; it’s produced with thousand dollar budgets.

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

Austin Findley:  Nothing. We are all trying to become bigger fish than we are. Since the public could only remember a small group of musicians, some artists are left undiscovered. 90% of musicians worldwide are unknown to the masses. It’s common knowledge that successful musicians aren’t more talented than unsuccessful musicians; they’re just paid more. In order for musicians to become more successful, they’d have to gain skills in marketing, branding, and advertising. Those aren’t skills associated with the craft. Since artists don’t tend to think like business people, it fails. Which is why delegation could help artists more than it hinders. A team of marketers, promoters, tutors, and session musicians would make anyone successful. They’d still have to work; but not as hard. Managers could help with business opportunities too.

  1. What is your process when composing, recording and producing your music? Do you outsource any of these tasks?

Austin Findley:  I currently do cover songs with some originals. Recording and producing is currently done at home; on my computer. If I were to record music the traditional way, I’d need thousands of dollars for recording, producing, and mastering my albums. After those costs are weighed, most of the budget would go towards marketing and branding. The amount of people working on an album would increase more than tenfold. The great thing about computers is it automates jobs that used to take longer to complete. For music, that helps tremendously. Unfortunately, that also makes it easier to dilute the market with shoddy products. Another reason why music today is almost never amazing. If you’re lucky, you might get two great albums a year. I’m outsourcing the marketing right now. If the marketing is able to reap profits, I’ll consider distributing the capital gains into a mix of marketing and improving products.

  1. How strict are you with genres and styles? Do you stick to a specific genre and style or do you tend to also explore diversities?

Austin Findley: I tend to focus on Classical and Jazz traditions when it comes to composition. Nobuo Utematsu’s style of music is a huge inspiration. After you factor in the indie rock influences, you get a unique blend of experimental. I tend to stick to a blend of styles to create a fusion genre.

  1. What key ingredients do you always try and infuse into your music, regardless of style or genre?

Austin Findley:  Complexity. It’s a thing that’s polarizing in the musical community. Simple songs can be great for ballads, but bad for instrumentals. Since John Coltrane is an influence of mine, my music reflects that. Introspection. I want my fans to dissect my music and discuss the nooks and crannies. There may be aspects they like or dislike. If there are things they don’t like, I’ll listen and alter my sound; customer service is important. If I hear quirks in the sound, I’ll leave the song with them, because it causes people to think about the song more. Abstract. Since my thoughts on musical theory is focused on different keys for parts of the song, the music tends to focus on a melody; which gets filled with chords and arpeggios. I layer those sounds together and loop those sounds to minutes. If I’m unsatisfied with the result, I’ll shelf the project and return to it after work.

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

Austin Findley:  Financial obligations. Music is not my main breadwinner; clerical work is. That is how all of this is possible. The proceeds from my day job go towards the business I’m investing in. I always remind myself that the company I work for indirectly made those things possible by giving me the funds to do so. Without those resources, my albums wouldn’t be on Spotify, they’d be on Bandcamp and YouTube. Not the best place to be for a musician. In order to distribute music, you must pay tribute to a distributor. I have paid those dues and got distribution as a result. If I were to release albums free of charge, the distribution would be limited.

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

Austin Findley:  Every album release is a success for me. I made a goal on releasing an album, and I released it. I consider that a notable achievement.

  1. What were some of the main challenges you encountered when starting out making music and how have they changed over time?

Austin Findley: Juggling work and dream work together. There are times they clash. Employers tend to dislike people with hobbies and goals besides burger flipper or floor sweeper. To make more time for my craft, I’ll sometimes bring my projects to work to complete them during work hours. Since workplaces look down on people trying to improve their station, they put clauses in contracts that state they can’t do business and work at the same time. That’s limiting for many people.

  1. What was your first hardware/software set-up like? And how has it evolved since then. What for you is currently the most important piece of hardware/software in your production process?

Austin Findley: I used a laptop and a built-in speaker. My audio tools have expanded into a microphone, desktop, and Midi input for microphone. The music is created on LMMS: Linux Multimedia Studio. It’s a DAW that allows the user to make music. Audacity is used to record vocals. Aria Maestosa, Anvil, and MuseScore are used for composition.

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

Austin Findley: Autonomy. I love the feeling of being able to work without someone forcing you to. I wouldn’t trade it in the world. It has its drawbacks. Even when you don’t want to work on music, you must. It’s in the job title after all. Almost every musician has a day job to fund the hobby. They tend to spend less time than is required for financial reasons. Starting a career in the music industry requires a set of skills most musicians don’t have. It also requires sacrifices in time and relationship quality. Music can be a rewarding path for some who face uncertain outlooks on jobs. When people have little-to-no access to quality employment, they tend to create their own. This job creation rarely creates enough wealth to live off of.

  1. Are you satisfied about the way the music business works in today’s digital age with platforms like Apple, Spotify, Beatport and Soundcloud, or do you have a different vision of the business?

Austin Findley:  There are problems with the current business model of streaming and live performances. For streaming to make a difference, you’d have to stream a million plays in order to make $4,000. That’s below the poverty line! That only factors in Spotify; that does not take the others into consideration. From the point listed above, a musician would need a huge following in order to make a decent living off music alone. The music teacher musician is real. Even if you factor in live performances, the ROI on live performances is uncertain. Google the profit margins and it’ll almost always be negative for unknown acts. For legacy bands like Rolling Stones and Metallica, concerts are amazing. For the average musician: they could be a financial nightmare. It’s common for bands to go into debt to fund tours. They also tend to skip on meals and hotels in favor of couch surfing and van sleeping. It’s not a glamorous lifestyle for anyone. The Rockstar lifestyle doesn’t exist for most musicians; so the ego has to be left at the door and preferably kicked.

  1. In general, 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?

Austin Findley: Social media isn’t as effective as it used to be. There is way too much competition for one person to deal with. Instead of being censored from access to knowledge, the average person is censored from too much knowledge; they don’t know what to look up. So, musicians are competing against established brands that people trust. It’s the devil you know, that’s better than the devil you don’t. In order to stand out from other musicians, a musician would have to make their product ten times better than the competition, have their art be a purple cow, and have a team of professionals that focus on the business aspect of music.

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

Austin Findley: David Bowie. The Doors. Yasunori Mitsuta. Nobuo Utematsu. John Coltrane. Miles Davis. Charles Mingus. Fishmans. Radiohead. Velvet Underground.

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

Austin Findley:  Which one? I have two more albums slated for this year, and an album on New Years called: The Hits. The style from Neu Hälfte is similar to the ones I’m releasing months from now. The time horizon hasn’t changed the overall sound. So if you like Neu Hälfte, you’ll love Grass, Tree, and The Hits. Most of the songs on these albums are covers.

  1. Do you have any favorite track in one of your projects that has a specific backstory and/or message very dear to you?

Austin Findley: Scars of Time. It uses the layering I’ve referred to earlier to great effect. Jessy Dubai is about an actress. The song uses a Latin groove; which is incorporated into the music I create. Blame Os Mutantes and Chico Buarque for that.

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

Austin Findley:   I focus on a studio environment. I plan to branch out to live performances when I get the equipment and infrastructure to do so. I’m not sure what is required to perform live but I’ve heard it requires a PA System, musicians, security guards, and booth tables with merchandise. Those things cost thousands of dollars to obtain. Security guards aren’t that much for an hour of time; so I’m not worried about that. The most expensive item on the list would be other musicians; unless I DJ on equipment. It would be cheaper that way, but how would that look on a performing angle? A guy on a computer with headphones on? That wouldn’t make a great show, would it?

  1. What do you find most rewarding about what you do? And do you have a specific vision or goal that you would like to achieve in 2019?

Austin Findley: As a musician, I create music. Giving the world art is the greatest reward any artist can offer. For goals in 2019, I’ve achieved all the goals for this year that I’ve wanted. The type of goals that require an accent to four million fans on Spotify are long term goals, not yearly goals. It would take many years to get that many fans at once. How many years? Depends. It would not happen overnight. The dream of being discovered by playing at a bar and becoming a mega star is unrealistic. A more reasonable goal is to aim for sustainability. In good times and bad, you’ll still be in the music industry whether you have hit records or not.

Creative Producer and Electronic Music Composer Nishit Gajjar’s new EP Album ‘Oblivion Messages’ is rather a unique blend of Ambient, Post Rock and the New Age genre. The flow in each track is sometimes linear, partly disruptive, and partly unearthly. In each track it is an interesting journey which will keep the listener attentive and engrossed.

The track ‘Medeetait Spirits’ is smooth, alluring and creates a meditative atmosphere. Whereas ‘Raw Racer’ is all about chase and thrill! On the other hand, the ‘Oblivion Messages’ track is haunting and creates ethereal vibes. The usage of Indian Mantra is exceptional and quite astute in this track.

The unique aspect of this album is that Nishit Gajjar will use the tracks from this album in his upcoming short film, ‘Musing of the Muse – The Cycle’. According to Nishit Gajjar the film ‘Musing of the Muse – The Cycle’ is an other-world narrative which discusses the concept of afterlife. Mr. Big Shot Productions which is based in Los Angeles will produce the film.

Well, it will be a real treat to see how the album will sound and be utilized in the film.

You can listen to the album on Spotify, Amazon Music, iTunes and Deezer. It is also available on Bandcamp for purchase.

Knarly Jones is a producer from Detroit, Michigan. When not producing music he is working on a theory of quantum gravity and works as a math professor, holding positions at two universities. He holds a dual Ph.D. in mathematics and physics and actively does research in theoretical astrophysics. Combining a traditional electro feel with cinematic hits and strikes he has crafted the “Knarly” sound, which blends together with Electro and Progressive House. His latest track, “Atonement” is pure energy, a modern-day club symphony coming at you hard and unyielding every second of the way.  It sounds spectacular, and is undoubtedly one of the coolest EDM tracks of the year so far.

Knarly Jones makes the loudest, hardest pulse-pounding window-rattling music imaginable on “Atonement”, and thrusts the whole shebang raw and uncut into the audience’s collective consciousness. And it works like a charm. In between, he mixes in melodic female vocal adlibs, eerie atmospheres and growling synths.

Addictive stuff, which you will find yourself listening to, again and again. I listened to it over and over, the track’s relentless momentum and go-for-break energy etching itself into my memory. Emotional, evolutionary, and haunting, “Atonement” is a great melding of the electro style with a commitment to more dramatic cinematic sounds.

As a thumping beat drags you along, bass assaults your senses, percussion blasts you into infinity, voices lull you into a trance, and screaming keys cut the night sky. The track packs enough sonic treasures and mood-inducing storms that Knarly Jones is known for. With EDM leading the way, audiences will welcome “Atonement” as a quintessential electro house record that redefines what dance music can be.

Once the track kicks in, the beat gets you moving and really makes you feel alive. This guy presents a wide range of his abilities, from familiar a club rhythm to more experimental sounds. The result is an emotional piece of dance music, the perfect evolution from earlier releases.

Dance music has almost always been a constant source of motivation, joy and energy, and “Atonement” reloads that source, retaining Knarly Jones’ signature and industrious vibe, as expected. The track has been passionately crafted, and brimming with sentiments.

Evidently, Jones has found the right balance between commercial sounds and his own personal signature style, without watering himself down. Something we can love and appreciate. “Atonement” is another impressive peek at the slew of experimental sounds Jones is able to lay down and fill up the arrangement.

Whether throwing down relentless energy in a nightclub setting or igniting momentum across some of festival stages, Knarly Jones’ innate ability to create and perform crowd-pleasing, hands in the air, gripping dance floor records is what paves the way for his continuum of success.

The producer’s level of inventive music is soaring beyond expectations this year, with the release of “Atonement”. Knarly Jones’ exhilarating passion to produce music is leading him full force into the industry where he has proven his worth through every track he puts out, and every crowd he performs for.

“Ô, Rose Noire d’Iran/ La Déclamation” (‘O, Rose Noire d’Iran/ The Declamation’) is an oriental flavored poetic project by poet and spoken word artist AKA Louis, and sound designer Han Sino. Two monikers, for the same creative person who is an illustrator, book author, poet, filmmaker and musician, among many other artistic things. This latest project is available in both audio and video formats.  It is accompanied by a booklet of 10 poetic texts, in its original French language, as well as English translations. I would highly recommend watching the video version if you’re English speaking, as it has subtitles in real time. At its origin, ‘Ô, Rose Noire d’Iran’ is a book by AKA Louis, which contains a collection of poetry on drunkenness, beauty, inner voyage, brotherhood beyond color and horizons, and the discovering of the soul and the self. AKA Louis has so far completed 18 books, while his alter ego Han Sino hasn’t on an album for over a year now, breaking away from his usual rhythm.

This is mainly due to the fact that AKA Louis, has been working on various projects, including writing books and poetry, painting, sketching, and pushing forward his professional ambition of becoming a contemporary painter of abstract and colorful expressionism.

The culture of poetic drunkenness, from the orient, Asia, Iran, India, China and Pakistan, has left an impression on AKA Louis, an apparently enriched him substantially in terms of human experience. In fact he brings many of those flavors, moods, and instrumental elements into the soundscapes that support and embellish the spoken word poetry on “Ô, Rose Noire d’Iran/ La Déclamation”.

As for the poetry itself, AKA Louis makes a point of not trying to imitate the styles of classic Persian poetry by the greats, but instead pays homage to them, within his own original approach and style.  “I admire them, and give them acknowledgement and gratitude for the beautiful gift they give to humanity, through their work,” states AKA Louis. “To know our own soul through the poetic metaphors of life’s pleasures, is an authentic way to know how to fully enjoy and live life.”

Instances of the poetic nuances of “Ô, Rose Noire d’Iran/ La Déclamation” is based on the Dervish, which in Islam can sometimes refer broadly to members of the Sufi fraternity (tariqah), or more narrowly to a religious mendicant, who chooses or accepts material poverty. It is this latter instance that particularly intrigues AKA Louis’ intellectual curiosity.

AKA Louis makes it clear that in his poetry, Dervish does not ever refer to the Whirling Dervishes, which many of us may be familiar with. He also states that he has a strong affinity to the Persian culture, having had many Persian friends and contact with their communities, as well as having been introduced to artists such as Omar Khayyam, Hafiz, and Saadi.

“The Iranian traditions and culture, the Persian meals, and sense of friendship, sharing, and art of living, as well as the poetry of drunkenness is also the opportunity to discover another way to love and to elevate one’s soul,” concludes AKA Louis.

Taken into account all of the above we can conclude that of “Ô, Rose Noire d’Iran/ La Déclamation” is a work inspired by the revisited theme of the black rose, the beauty, the inner pilgrimage, but also, the praise of the heart and the elevation of the soul. The culture of poetic drunkenness, the dervishes, orient, and Asia. It is an eclectic and challenging audiovisual work, very minimalistic in its approach.

The two Han Sino soundscapes – “La Rose Noire d’Iran Thème” which introduces the work, and “Le Métronome Asymétrique” which concludes the work, are stripped down to basic eastern elements and metronome percussion.

In the middle we have the spoken word substance of “Ô, Rose Noire d’Iran – La Déclamation”, narrated by AKA Louis, which can be thoroughly appreciated in the YouTube video for English speakers. The innovative and creative spoken word poet plucks from his experiences and learnings, and emerges with a project of emotionally impacting and brilliantly written poems and music that reflect the culture and leanings of a generation that AKA Louis may be literally and physically far removed from, but is spiritually and eternally, totally in sync with.

South Korean producer and beatmaker glowcean aka Junhyung Kim, started playing classical piano at 7. In 2012, he started majoring in Jazz Piano at Berklee College of Music. But soon after, inspired by various artists such as Flying Lotus, Tokimonsta and The Internet, he decided to become a producer and embed electronic elements in Hip-hop, R&B and Soul genre. During his time at Boston, he released his unique-styled tracks on SoundCloud, including ‘Ceremony’, ‘Inside of you (Cosmic)’ and ‘Spr(ing) out’. Now back in Seoul, glowcean is blending his expertise in classical & jazz piano with electronic production to create the sounds of the future. He has just released the second remix of Mostacho Xprmnt’s “Clap With Me” in collaboration with Music Dribble Entertainment in New York, with artwork by Cikadda in Russia.

“I wanted to remake this track with a more modern, futuristic and synthesized sound. So I used digital synths like Serum, and added lots of my favorite sounds of water, foley and heavy bass,” said the South Korean producer and beatmaker. Well not only did he make it modern and futuristic, glowcean literally turned this track on its head.

Cover artwork by Cikadda

Gone are the jazzy, neo-soul tones and the resonating voice of then frontwoman Song Yi Jeon, who has since been replaced. In comes a progressive and chilled ambient groove, embellished with a chipmunk styled voice.

It’s a bold and revolutionary approach to remixing this song, which you may, or may not like, depending on personal taste, but cannot deny glowcean’s visionary attitude and the technical quality of his execution.  By the end of the song, it’s clear that this is someone who has skills beyond after-school messing around.

The whole production is a teaser of what glowcean can do with the already established elements. To say glowcean a producer still finding his groove would be disingenuous. If anything, “Clap With Me (glowcean Remix)” is evidence that he is a producer who has found his very own place and is very comfortable immersing himself into a multitude of musical contexts and expanding the possibilities of his skillset.

glowcean clearly has an extensive toolbox afforded to him by his studies and practical exploration. This track shows he is fully capable of defying the stereotype of internet remixer, backing producer or whatever mold people try to fit craftsman like him into. Bold, bright and bursting with distinctive production touches, “Clap With Me (glowcean Remix)” makes smart use of glowcean’s unpredictable crisscrossing of sounds.

It’s an intoxicating listen from start to finish. This remix is a statement of talent and creativity that may set the stage for a fruitful career for the South Korean producer and beatmaker. Whether he goes in one direction or several, glowcean definitely appears to be a producer to look out for in the future.

Christopher Baltz is a Christ centered hip hop artist based in Easton, Maryland. His new album “Maverick Wav” is about growing and building faith to what he calls “big wave” status. The album was released June 07, 2019 and is available on all major digital music platforms. Baltz is a stand-out artist who writes, raps, and sings with excellence and passion. He has everything it takes to be one of the best in his field of scope, but few have probably heard of him. This album showcases his originality and his voice. He’s got an uncanny ability to be raw, real, and musically superb. Moreover his Christian infused music is a far cry from the usual bible-punching rappers, simply throwing out the name of Jesus Christ on every line.

Christopher Baltz is just an amazing artist; he uses his experiences to relate to others and glorify God, completely eschewing the clichéd name-dropping. It’s a blessing we have someone like him in this industry. Christians need this music, people need this music. Life isn’t always rainbows and butterflies, people deal with some real things.

Oftentimes preaching won’t be enough to convince people, as they need to hear about real life experiences, in a language they can identify with. So right from the opening track, “Thank God for the Real Ones (A Real Tribe)”, this is what Baltz brings to the table on “Maverick Wav”.

On “#Maverickwav (No One)”, Baltz unwraps both his lyrical flow and singing voice, excelling at both. The song is melodic in the choruses and straight up fire on the verses. I love the emotion and passion that he puts into his music. I’m not Christian (or even religious at all) but I can relate to what he’s saying on the smooth and introspective “Faith & Flow”, and what he’s trying to achieve.

The emotion goes even deeper on “He Will Never Forsake Me”. I don’t think it’s possible to listen to the song and not feel everything bundled into the verses. It’s such a powerful song, and works well with the interlude “Hit ‘Em with the Flow”, which are sonically similar.

As you move through the remainder of the album I think Christopher Baltz does an excellent job of mixing slower songs with more of his fast-paced tracks confirming his skill and his place in the music industry. The album as a whole feels like riding waves up and down through Baltz emotions, issues, questions, and thoughts.

As you move through the back to back standouts, “Believe for More”, “I Got News (#Pro Life)” and “Raise Our Faith”, you’ll notice the album has a solid identity and cohesiveness. A lot of that is established by Baltz’s ability to seamlessly switch flows song after song, and the production which maintains a series captivating sonic elements throughout all of the songs.

Christopher Baltz says things like they are. Yes he is a Christian, and yes he will show his faith. But that doesn’t mean that all of his songs are about God. Christians struggle with regular things as well, and Baltz works his way through those topics, as he does on “I Got News (#Pro Life)”, which ties in nicely with the following track, “Raise Our Faith”.

There is a lot of debate on how the music has changed. On one hand, the artist has gained more control and can freely release music at a faster rate with less regulation from major labels. Of course one major drawback to that lack of label involvement has been a question of quality control. Front-to-back, quality-filled albums with zero filler are a rarity these days. That’s where “Maverick Wav” comes in.

As we shift through the final highlights “Who Am I… (So Much Love)” and “Came to the Cross Roads”, it’s clear that Christopher Baltz rapping is rock solid, his singing voice sounds strong, the songs themselves are more memorable, the production quality is top notch, and there isn’t a weak track to be found here. Only ones you’ll personally like better than others. I’ve listened through this album quite a few times so far, and it’s great from start to finish. Let me rephrase that: Christopher Baltz is an amazing artist, and this album is phenomenal.

The new track, “Waiting”, by neon radiation – the project by London based pop songwriter and producer, Gary Blake, is a song that’s difficult to stop listening to. Its melody is catchy and sticks in your head, and it’s just hard to ever get sick of it. This is a much tighter track than anything the project has done before. Blake just killed all the extraneous bits and separated the wheat from the chaff. What’s left is only the good stuff – crunchy, jangly electric guitars and resonating retro synths. The stuff that makes you want to sing along, bang your head with the beat, and jump up and down. There’s really nothing wrong with that. This track definitely sounds bigger and bolder than some of their previous stuff, and that’s not a bad thing. It’s a sweet wall of guitar and synth sound. It’s a different style, to be sure, but one that gives new life to the current scene.

For those still not familiar with the neon radiation modus operandi, Gary Blake collaborates with leading vocalists and award winning remixers/producers to strive and make the perfect pop song. His influences are wide ranging from 80s synth pop and new wave bands, to contemporary chart artists.

In fact Blake states that for “Waiting”, he was inspired the blend of guitar and synth on the recent Chvrches / Marshmellow offering. To be fair, neon radiation has always been amazing, I have enjoyed all of their releases so far, and this one is no exception.

As always, the vocals are powerful and nuanced, and the sonority of the track proves that neon radiation is amongst the best synthpop projects we have in the world today, bar none. Gary Blake and his project is quite ready to make their entry into the mass consciousness in 2019, embodying a cultural shift from rock groups toying with synth-pop aesthetics, toward outright synth-pop with a rock band’s sensibility.

These kinds of projects are steadily coming to the fore, and amongst them neon radiation truly stands out. The result is soaring, sparkling pop music, tinted melancholy but bright and approachable in execution.

The lead voice beams across the sleek organic and digital backdrop like light reflecting on polished mirror. It confidently and capably narrates a tale of romantic tumult, colored by hope and vulnerability, which is vague enough to write into your own personal situation.

This is pop music, rendered artfully and with plenty of personality to make an impression. It sounds spectacular, and should win them a devoted fan base that will no doubt include a lot alternative radio programmers.

The single most substantial element of neon radiation, over and above the pop genius of Gary Blake, will always be the female voices Blake chooses on each release. On “Waiting”, her voice is captivating in the sense that she can go through a complete range of emotions on a song that otherwise would fit more self-indulgent purposes. It has this immensely likable quality to it that grabs your ear — and your attention.

When backed with equally superb production and songwriting, neon radiation has all the necessary parts to put forth grandiose pop soundscapes with powerful hooks that can draw in just about anyone. “Waiting” which also features the guitar expertise of Gordon Stockley, is released digitally for streaming and download, on Friday 28-June-2019.

Emerging in 2010, Justin Llamas has been producing chart-topping YouTube cover videos for years, gaining 4 million video views and over 20,000 subscribers. Using YouTube as his platform, Justin has built a loyal fanbase, and even attracted responses from the artists he has covered. Moreover, he has become a household name on the mobile app StarMaker, building a fanbase of over 200,000 followers. Justin has also crossed over into film and television where h has featured in a number of commercials, TV shows, and films. Riding the crest of compliments received from L.A. Reid, Terry Lewis, Jimmy Jam and Babyface, for his EP “Gold”, Justin Llamas has dropped his follow-up 7-track recording, “Party on the Outside”. On this latest EP, Justin proves that with the right production and management staff, he has the potential to surpass just about anybody in his lane. While the youthful artist continues to develop his artistry, this recording marks his best yet.

Justin Llamas masterfully exhibits vulnerability, resolve, and soulfulness on the emotionally-driven, and powerful title track “Party on the Outside”, which follows the introductory “Welcome”.  From the start, he exhibits his best attribute – his voice.

Justin shares his struggles, insecurities, and loneliness. “Can’t help but put on a front because sharing the pain hurts the ones that I love. I have to put on a front because sharing the pain hurts the ones that I love,” sums up his state of discomfort, in being unable to share his inner truths.

He casually sings portions of the verses in a mellower register, amplifying his vulnerability.  By the pre-chorus/chorus sections, the full scope of his vocal expressiveness is unleashed. The soulful beastliness of his vocals, plus the harmonies, arrive in their full glory. Justin is honest about his feelings on the highly effective “Sweep!”

In a nutshell, this groovy pop-soul cut finds the singer dealing with the pain of disappointment and confrontation: “I can’t take another heartbreak. Falling down again—can’t deal with the pain. I refuse to go there again. Let us hide the truth—easy to pretend. That everything is fine…then oops another fight.” With masterful falsetto, Justin takes us on an adrenaline-filled, anxious, self-conscious journey that is relatable to anybody deeply in love during a conflicting relationship.

Justin Llamas continues to flaunt his prodigious pipes on “After You”. This is a groovy, slow burning ballad, characterized by superb production comprised of cool synths, a robust bass line, and tasteful piano.  The soaring chorus is best part of the song – the celebrated centerpiece – as Justin continues his struggles within an inter-personal relationship.

Llamas remains a force to be reckoned with vocally on “You Run, I Follow”. Once more, he shows off some spectacular vocal nuances, as he asks: “Can I know your plans? Where you go, I’m following, following.” He’s backed by an electro-driven, soulful-pop production, a backdrop he excels at.

Justin lets it all hang out on the upbeat, “Stamps”, offering no apologies for his personal habits: “No there’s no use trying to hide it. And we won’t keep it private. We had fun last night in the same old shirt from yesterday. So don’t judge or call us evil. Just because we go where we go. Yeah, we’re all party people. And you can see… You can see our stamps. Our stamps.” The track benefits from its fun groove, its piano-driven production, and liberating lyrics.  Once again, Justin Llamas strikes gold here.

The closing track, “Find You” is one of “Party on the Outside’s” biggest triumphs. Justin Llamas gives one of the truly elite vocal performances of the EP showing off his gorgeous tone – can you say chills?  The chorus is simply stunning, filled with reflective questions about the relationship. Beyond the excellence of the lead vocals, this is also a production showcase.

The way the background vocals are used to accentuate the lead, the addition of the cinematic strings – there’s some awesome, thoughtful touches here. All in all, Justin Llamas takes another step forward in his artistic maturity on this EP.

There are ample potential hits on this recording, and vocally, he’s a force to be reckoned with, only getting better and better. The constant progression of his career has once again resulted in this crowning achievement.

Tommy Capretto is a house music DJ and Producer from the greater Philadelphia area. After launching his career in 2006, things moved to the next level in 2015 when Capretto accumulated releases via leading record labels, Universal Music, Capitol Records, Carrillo Music, Armada Music, Juicy Music, HoTL Records, and others. A reputation built on being a go-to producer for club hits, Capretto has also totaled a number of official remixes for artists including Beck, Niall Horan, Hailee Steinfeld, MNEK, Dragonette, and FLETCHER among others. Capretto’s music is supported by fellow global DJs Don Diablo, Laidback Luke, Oliver Heldens, Roger Sanchez, Robbie Rivera, BlasterJaxx, Thomas Gold, KRYDER, and many others.  As a performing DJ, Capretto has played the gamut of A-listed Philadelphia nightclubs and festival events. The DJ/Producer has also hosted his own mixshows on WPTY-FM “Party 105” Long Island, “Beat 360” Washington D.C., “Strictly Dance Radio” Chicago, “Radio Danz” Miami and others.

Tommy Capretto’s latest release on the Carrillo Music label, is “Floss”. A track full of heavily swung kick drums, twisted synth motifs, rumbling bass tones, and song craft drenched in emotion. In fact, I think it is Capretto’s willingness to pour intense emotion into his music which is the key to his rise.

This is one of the records of the year for me. The way Capretto EQs the kick drum and puts the bassline on top is just state of the art. His synth licks on this piece are unmistakable, while the adlib spoken voice adds a deeper dynamic to the mix.

Tommy Capretto’s latest contribution to his discography continues to highlight his innovative productions, showing no bounds to his creativity. The universal message is a rolling, hypnotic groove with haunting angular synths that jump out of the backdrop and a strong sense of the unknown.

Capretto keeps his vision looking forward, not relying on the past to give his track context. Yet, even though he may be focusing ahead, he still relies on a chunky, nostalgic sounding beat, a fairly uncluttered arrangement and low-slung bass lines to get his message across. If you were looking for one of those no-bullshit, minimal roller-coaster house tracks for the summer, this is the one.

There’s nothing too fancy or overwhelming about this record, but it sounds phenomenal, because it’s as solid of a dance track as you can get. The kind you can let go on loop for almost an eternity without getting winded. Tommy Capretto has an ear that can take in all manner and styles of house music and a soul that can synthesize it into something special – stripped down, but banging.

“Floss” offers a compelling argument as to why Capretto is so celebrated in EDM circles, showing his undeniable renown as a club hit maker of sheer pedigree. This track is a reminder of why few, if any, can stand tall next to him on his chosen turf. “Floss” is essential stuff for the dancefloor!

Gio is a Kansas City, MO native currently based in Los Angeles. The young artist has been interested in music since childhood and started his music career in earnest, at the age of 15. His first single was met with positive reviews and went on to gain over 1,000,000 streams. His debut album “G Star” was released in June 2019. I drove with Gio’s smooth voice in my ears and a pre-summer breeze blowing through my car on first listen of his album. And now I associate this with being carefree, and every time I listen to this album, I get in that mood again. Every track has the potential to be a chart-topping hit. With the voice of an angel, Gio makes you want to sway and move, no matter what he’s singing or rapping.

Regardless of my personal carefree vibe on listening to this recording, it’s fair to say that there are quite a few tortured tracks here – whether dealing with sentimental relationships or family intricacies. Gio has obviously experienced a lot in his life, and he infuse the album with his burdens and joys.

From the moment the album opens with “Day by Day”, Gio’s vocals are consistently engaging. He has an unforced and intimate way of singing, capable of shifting without strain into a more intense register. Words are twisted and turned in an enticing fashion. It is as though language and melody are being melted together.

The slow burner, “Drip” ft. 30 pack, is an instantly impressive vocal performance from Gio. Here his voice scales the high register while soaring above the stripped down musical backdrop. He’s still got that soul/pop vibe that you’ll love, with just of pinch of sexiness.

“Waiting For You” maintains a slinky tempo, and plush arrangement which questions a romantic narrative. Gio shows vulnerability and excellently portrays his thoughts and emotions. “Fly Away” is more urgent and edgy, as Gio lays out his sing-song flow for all to see. These are some real emotions and personal complications that many of us may have gone through.

Gio’s voice over the drum kick and skittering hi-hats on “Love You Tonight” ft. OSO works wonders. This one is ready for the Top 40 charts with its reverberating vocals, and the flow on the hook which is real catchy. Gio has the talent, charisma and creativity to top his own work, and take it to the next level, which is exactly what he does on “What You Calling For”.

This album makes plenty of way for the discussion of love and relationships, and as cliché as you may expect this to be, love songs like this one are a reminder of why this is a subject so visited – because it works.

“Body On Body” ft. WMB Snappy takes the sentimental and transforms into the physical, as Gio lays his desires on the line: “Your body on my body, is the only thing that’s right tonight.” Gio outdoes himself again on “Let’s Go” and lures listeners in with his soul-filled voice.

His cadence floats above the relaxing guitar riffs, thumping percussion and electro twists, as he takes listeners on a sensational journey. It is evident from listening to “G Star” that Gio has a lot to give to the industry. The public should watch out for this record during summer because it will be dominating the airwaves.

A.Menz is a 23 year old artist based out of Boston who specializes in old school rap and hip/hop. He has a project coming out this summer with other artists such as Suigeneris, Jasper and Izzynyce, along with a charity show at Salisbury beach in Mass on August 24th. His latest track, “Conversations” tells stories of real life events and how just talking to someone could save a life or change them in a positive way forever. Following a string of dope releases, and a name change A.Menz returns with his new single. Produced entirely by @goononthetrack, this track showcases a matured and enlightened emcee who would rather educate and inspire the listener, rather than brag about how much crack he’s selling and how many bodies he’s caught.

It’s a refreshing approach to the current scene as A.Menz drops philosophic science without coming off as overly preachy. The production is the perfect accomplice for this mission as it delivers a vintage sound not abrasive yet not so smooth that you’ll find yourself nodding off. It’s a beat that sounds fresh yet familiar.

Coming right out the gate with heavy lyrically artillery, A.Menz seeks to quickly captivate the listener. Over a harmonious backdrop, “Conversations” pulls no punches, choosing to speak on the positivity of inspiring and truthful verbal communication as opposed to indifference and ignorance.

This joint should serve as a handbook to any aspiring rapper looking to break away from ignorant, negative and destructive rhymes. It’s the type of song that’s sorely needed in today’s materialistic and violent environment, urging the listener to be greater than the stereotypes placed upon them and to simply be great.

The instrumental here is fairly minimal, allowing A.Menz rhymes to stand in the forefront. “Conversations” never gets too heavy-handed, as it presents subject matters that should be addressed in this climate of apathetic dominance.

Bringing hip-hop back to its true essence is a great mission by any account, but sometimes it’s best to demonstrate what it sounds like, rather than telling us about it. Hence A.Menz simply shows us how it’s done, making “Conversations” a masterclass worth enrolling in.

A.Menz has slowly molded himself into one of the sharpest writers: his lyricism and effort are undeniable. The result is a damn fine track that is complete with an excellent technical performances and a quality beat. I honestly don’t have a bad thing to say about this track. It’s everything that made hip hop great in the first place.

From the lyrics to the beat to the overall messages, I have to say that as a fan of each golden era in hip hop, I’m proud of A.Menz for this project. He should know that regardless of the numbers he accumulates with “Conversations”, he has delivered pure, honest hip hop. And that, my friends, is the essence of this culture.

Saints Warning is a band hailing from Los Angeles, California. Their sound is fresh and modern, with a nod to the energy of indie rock and the timeless vibes of blues and alternative music. In addition to that, their songs are also quite personal and intimate, capturing that unique vibe often associated with the singer-songwriter style.

The line-up currently consists of Eduardo Enriquez (vocals), as well as David McClellan on guitar, bass player Andrew Dupras, and last but not least, Bobby Godines sitting behind the drum kit.

The group was founded by David earlier in 2019, and ever since they’re early days, they managed to combine each member’s unique influences into a groundbreaking approach. It didn’t take long for them to find their chemistry, and bring their music to some of the hottest venues throughout California. In addition to their catchy, vibrant music, Saints Warning also strikes for the positive message behind the band’s lyrics.

From the stadium-sized hooks of Van Halen and Guns’N’Roses, down to the poppy aesthetics of Blink-182 and The Beatles, anything goes!

Award-winning artist Miss Money has worked with major league artists and labels. Her music video for “On the Nephs” aired on BET, MTV and played on major stations in Africa. Her song “tFone” features Boosie Badazz. Miss Money has also headlined shows with artists such as Dej Loaf, Young MA, Boosie Badazz, Jadakiss, Cardi B, Da Babay, Jimmy Wopo and Wiz Khalifa. The Pittsburgh rapper started a RICH CHICKZ movement which was inspired by her music and clothing. Miss Money is currently pushing her latest single “Mrs. Parker” produced by Stevie Beats. It has an awesome, crisp dancehall-flavored beat with smart sexy lyrics, offering a sensual yet fresh twist on hip hop. She peaks into emotions and feelings of hers that all of us have and she’s just laying it out there for everyone, while keeping it real.

“Mrs. Parker” is vulnerable and ferocious, lewd and witty, with blunt-force charisma and more range than anyone has any right to expect. The song is delivered with infectious force. Miss Money shows off focus and brevity.

She is vivid and startling, and hell-bent on not wasting even a second of your time. What makes “Mrs. Parker” even more impressive is that it never drags, never settles, and never dilutes the rapper’s exuberant vibe. Every verse on the track matters to her, and she lets you know it.

It’s also a perfect pop song, the way it ping-pongs from well-worn catchy clichés to razor-sharp wittiness. But the way Miss Money herself handles the chorus of “Mrs. Parker” is what sticks with you, as she digs into the sing-song groove: “Now do your thing, thing, do your thing, thing, do your thing, thing, do it.”

And when she jumps back onto the verse, it’s her impressively catchy flow that captures everything that Miss Money is praised for — her punchlines, her delivery and her personality. This is a sexy passion-loaded female empowerment anthem that spares no lyrical excess in its over three minute run time.

“Mrs. Parker” shows off Miss Money’s best qualities and makes a point that she has nothing to hide. Here she takes control of her sentiments, her desires, her sexuality, and control of her sound.

This would normally be cataloged under the overused rap tropes department, but this track makes a seemingly recognizable narrative feel fresh, mainly because of Miss Money’s uniquely female perspective. The track lays out the artist’s personal narrative while also proving her to be a deeper, more diverse talent than she’s previously let on.

With its Caribbean groove, the effervescent “Mrs. Parker” is deeply connected to Miss Money’s personal essence; the song presents an artist confident enough to expand her sound but smart enough, not to drift too far from her wheelhouse.

All the while, Miss Money’s explosive personality translates flawlessly into confidence-saturated rhymes. This track will undoubtedly be heard all summer in crowded clubs. Miss Money’s song will radiate through the hearts of infatuated lovers everywhere.

Vato Perro: “/b/ is my hood homie homie bang that sh*t” – bringing EDM Drill http://jamsphere.com/reviews/vato-perro-b-is-my-hood-homie-homie-bang-that-sht-bringing-edm-drill http://jamsphere.com/reviews/vato-perro-b-is-my-hood-homie-homie-bang-that-sht-bringing-edm-drill#respond Fri, 14 Jun 2019 07:00:42 +0000 http://jamsphere.com/?p=35630 Hailing from Perris, California, Vato Perro is an EDM artist who has set his sights high in the music industry, even creating a new space for the music he makes in a new genre called EDM Drill. “EDM Drill takes dark and heavy drums, similar to Chiraq’s Drill, and places them on top of melodic […]

Hailing from Perris, California, Vato Perro is an EDM artist who has set his sights high in the music industry, even creating a new space for the music he makes in a new genre called EDM Drill. “EDM Drill takes dark and heavy drums, similar to Chiraq’s Drill, and places them on top of melodic harmonies that are very bright and vivid, such as in EDM,” says Perro. Released in late April 2019, you can find Perro’s latest single, “/b/ is my hood homie homie bang that sh*t”, and previous work on all major digital stores. For those still unfamiliar with it, Drill music has been on the scene for years, but it has gradually become more mainstream.

The style originated in Chicago, in the US, as part of the hip-hop scene and is defined by its violent and often dark content. It focuses on crime and the daily ordeals those living on the street face. Why is it called drill music though? Well, drill is the slang word for the use of automatic weapons. The beat for the type of music tends to be slower in tempo, about 60 to 70 beats per minute.

Now Vato Perro takes Chicago’s polarizing sound with its machine-gun styled percussion and ominous chimes, adding warm string pads and shimmering pianos for a dramatically epic sound that is very cinematic.

I don’t  know if Perro explicitly identifies with the drill movement, but his music scratches the same primal itch as Chicago’s heyday drill used to, while bringing a wily, melodic energy to the music that’s unmistakably his own. On “/b/ is my hood homie homie bang that sh*t”, Perro has taken a sound that was once quintessentially Chicago and created something thrillingly new out of it, in his California setting.

If any up-and-coming music producer is ready to dramatically shake up contemporary EDM music from the bottom up, it’s Vato Perro, because he is taking the genre into untraveled territories. His, is a potential talent with some of the most inventive, defiant, and raw production you’ll hear anywhere.

If he wanted to, Perro has the chops and smarts to produce for both the big guns and the local talent, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he does in the near future. While there’s no dearth of talent in the current international production music scene, Vato Perro sounds like one of the most promising with his EDM Drill style.

The track “/b/ is my hood homie homie bang that sh*t” completes the goal of showing that Vato Perro and his unique production style is here to stay, and also fully proves why everyone needs to get on board.

Doubling down on his chops, Perro shows us that there are still many fresh new avenues which EDM can travel down. This release is a welcome invitation to join the party and journey down that avenue with him.

If you’ve ever wanted to describe to somebody, what cinematic electro-pop sounded like, and needed just one song to do that, here it is – “Intoxicated” by Neon Radiation. The track, which will be dropping officially on all major steaming sites on the 21st of June 2019, captures all elements which consolidate that specific sound. Atmospheric, thrillingly noir and sensual in concept, with a warm and ear-friendly electronic soundscape, supporting a catchy melody and captivating vocal.

This is an amazing journey through a melodic arrangement, coupled with smooth female vocals and melancholy synths, giving this track very high replay value. “Intoxicated” is very powerful and has an epic like quality in instrumental composition. The song epitomizes the best elements of the electronic music genre and shows Neon Radiation at their songwriting peak.

Neon Radiation is Gary Blake, a London based Pop music songwriter and producer whose work features a range of male and female guest vocalists. Blake has always been adept at seamlessly integrating guest vocalists into his music, all while maintaining his identity and cohesiveness as a songwriter and producer and this track again shows that skill off well. The chosen female singer for “Intoxicated” is absolutely sublime in her execution of the storyline and in exulting the richly textured backdrop of pads and heartbeat rhythm.

“In the morning hope is hard to find. See my flaws of the human kind. You took my body, what about my mind? No there’s never a love guarantee,” is the kind of impassioned but tortured conflict that runs through the narrative. Far from a somber affair, though, the track’s infectious mix of melodrama and melancholy renders the song a mesmerizing slow-motion Adrenalin spike.

“Intoxicated” finds a balance between edgy electronics and sensory grace. This is an immaculate piece of cinematic electro-pop with a central hook that, together with the searching of the song’s lyrics, is enough to make one go weak at the knees.

This seems to be the new trademark sound for Neon Radiation where you can block out just on four minutes of your time, and you’ll be transported into an entirely different universe. Neon Radiation have recorded the best track they could have envisioned: a layered and cohesive package of enveloping synths filled with addictive hooks, sublime vocals, and a powerful narrative.

There’s a bittersweet twinge if you may, hidden deep within the track’s warmth that makes it ever so intriguing. Of course the vocalist’s uncanny ability to meld her pitch and delivery to the material, employing just the right amount of restraint contributes greatly to the tuneful mantra.

This gorgeously produced, introspective new record integrates all the trademark Neon Radiation elements the Gary Blake has utilized, in different ways on past outings, but his focus has pivoted towards a more lyric-centric style of songwriting on “Intoxicated”, which allows him to improve on anything he has previously done, in almost every way possible. Who knows where Neon Radiation is capable of going from here.

About Dubble U

Warren Mckee, better known by Hip Hop Recording Artist Dubble U™ was bound to the streets as a youngin, having to look out for his mother and little brother, rising from the concrete jungle of Houston Texas. He moved to Dallas starting Highschool. Always turning to music to “get away” from all the scars and pain he was dealt coming up, Dubble U was knocking on the door in the Hip Hop world at 21 years old. A few mishaps between the aggressive rapper (being diagnosed with severe ADHD never helping the energy levels) and recording agency Goodnight Audio leading to a falling out. Dubble U left the game and had no involvement with ANY music for over 10 Years.

Out of nowhere, he decided to come back at an attempt to get a Major Record deal in 2017 at age 32, but with a different type of approach. Recording completely himself using his iPhone and if that wasn’t already a challenge, to do it all ONLY freestyling just until he lands a deal.  ’Fully kicking ass, taking names, spittin’ rhymes, and giving zero fucks about anything standing in his way – Dubble U™ is here to rock your world with a signature sound & freestyle approach to the Rap game.

Dropping his first official debut records back-to-back in 2018, Freestyle Only, Vol. 1 & Vol. 2 – this emcee continually pushes himself to the next level by putting everything he’s got into every move he makes and in the process manages to break a WORLD RECORD by recording over 1000 tracks in a year and a half. Slaughtering the previous record by an underground Houston Rapper at around 300 songs. Even Elvis can’t compete – he might have recorded 784 songs over the course of his entire career, but Dubble U™ went on to record an astounding 707 songs in ONE YEAR – so you decide, who’s really the king?

Always hustlin,’ always grindin’ – Dubble U™ continues to gain a mass following and fans from across the globe by keeping it completely real with his content and working those freestyle vibes for everything they’re worth. Designed for good times & to be turnt-up, but also with depth and a range, touching on pop and rock-n-roll sounds that’ll capture the attention of listeners in several categories of genres. Officially in it like never before, the 6’4 rapper is raising the stakes for himself, & for all the other emcees out there as well, as he takes over the rest of 2019, showing the world what the art of Rap is truly all about and moving these fake rappers aside and out to show them that if ‘he said it, he meant it’.

About The Release

Up-and-coming rapper Dubble U returns with his third official album, ‘The Bang’. The freestyle filled album contains music straight from the heart and an unmatchable flow by the Texan artist. He has had ups and downs in his life, with a point in his life taking a hiatus from music for ten years. He came back stronger than ever and setting records. Dubblue U stands a record breaker with having over 1,000 singles recorded and release within a year and a half. Moreover, in a single year, he released 707 songs.

The creativity behind this artist is unmatchable as he has endless stories to tell about his upbringing, his experience, and street life. To create this monstrous record, he has used his late mother as motivation. Knowing his number one fan watches from above, Dubble U put his heart, sweat, and tears into his music. Music has served as an outlet for Dubble U, and undoubtedly, he is an artist to keep an eye on as the creativity never ends. Will that record be broken? Not likely. The Texan artist has set his foot in the door with his massive accomplishment and is here to stay. His album ‘The Bang’ will be available in every streaming platform.
