Previous albums include “Optimism”, “For Lovers Only”, and “These Are The Days”.

Recklous: “Friends and Fam” – a heavy dose of personal scrutiny and a dash of harsh reality

It’s pretty hard to believe that rapper Recklous only dropped his first professionally produced track at the beginning of 2017. Over the years leading up to now, Santa Cruz’s very own lyrical wonder has balanced three personas: The reserved, well-mannered kid, an uplifting positive artist full of ambition and wisdom and an emcee whose love for hard hitting Hip Hop and lightening quick raps defines his sound. Slowly the first began to fade, leaving the remaining two in clear vision. Finally Recklous’ latest studio project is on its way, with a brand new single giving fans a clear picture of

Roger Cole & Paul Barrere: ‘Lost In The Sound’ – their most rewarding record yet!

If you are a Radiohead fan, with a penchant for legends like Pink Floyd and King Crimson, then Roger Cole & Paul Barrere will be an easy band to fall in love with. Thick haunting atmosphere, lots of bleeps and beeps, intense melodies, beautiful vocals and mystery-veiled lyrics, are part of the deal on their latest, freshly baked album “Lost in the Sound”. The riffs and parts are tight, intense little affairs with so much power as to build a cinematic degree of tension. These are well-oiled high-thread-count arrangements that draw their texture from an array of stringed instruments and

Several websites have just featured the song and his YouTube views are starting to accelerate. Here’s a little more about the influence of the song and background of Peter: When Peter Unger was growing up, Christmas was a magical time for his family and him. He grew up in a small town in Vermont, and lived on the side of mountain three miles up a dirt road. Peter’s home was a beautifully renovated farm house from the 1700s. On a clear winter’s

Rahul Mukerji: “Ma De Re Sha” balances the obtuse with the accessible!

Rahul Mukerji is a ‘guitarist’s guitarist’ who revels in a self-penned musical hybrid shot through with intensity, precision and plenty of ethnic flavorings. His 11 track album “Ma De Re Sha” is a big sounding recording with enough of twists and turns to make Rahul’s solos sound both dynamic and interesting. The opening track “Exit 13” sets the outline tones of this collection of songs. It balances lyrical eclecticism with an Indian twist while his incredible chops help him forge his own style. There are plenty of incendiary guitar breaks and harmony guitar parts, but Rahul also demonstrates a lightness of

Triple threat alternative rock artist Zachary Ray

How long have you been performing and recording, and did you record or

Nega Blast X: “The Experiment” – this caliber and artistic conviction is required for this art to evolve

There’s really no words to describe the sound of Nega Blast X. The Burbank music arranger, author and digital artist, Dominic R Daniels, sole proprietor of the Nega Blast X project, is in a realm of his own and hardly many can touch that artsy creativity he has under the hood. Based in the trance, techno and industrial idioms since 2010, Daniels is inspired by Daft Punk, Orbital, My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult and The Mutaytor. “The Experiment”, Nega Blast X’s third album is released on Amazon, Spotify, iTunes, and all other major digital download stores.

Tisabel: “GENRE HOPPING” bristles with energy and artistic audacity

Longtime Musical director and vocalist Tony Isabel aka Tisabel boasts an unprecedented skill set. He writes, arranges, sings, plays, and performs. He busts taboos, flashes unstoppable ambition, blends genres together like paint. Soulful ballads and funky grooves, ambient new age soundscapes, Hip-hop fantasy, and divine EDM devotion. For these qualities alone, he deserves respect. However, as you know, respect is also kind of a bullshit concept. Your favorite songs may not grace anyone else’s mixes; your favorite artists may not have ever left town. A century of recorded music has given us a galaxy of worthy tunes. But the gravitational

Lee Lee Lanea: “Basswhipped” resonates gloriously

Beats aren’t gendered. So why are we still in the dark ages when it comes to gender equality in the music studio? Women represent less than 5% of music producers and engineers. Yes, the music industry—like every industry on this patriarchal planet—is sexist. That is not news. But this means we’re missing out on a whole world of sounds, stories, and perspectives. Our culture has systematically ingrained this idea that technology is more of a man’s thing. Then of course there’s the fact that most men get freaked out when women do things better than them or even as good

Free From Gravity: “To Launch Debut Album In London”

Rock act Free From Gravity are bringing an innovative style to the music market with a fresh take on what a hit album should sound like. Comprised of a well-known group of seasoned veteran musicians, they are no strangers to playing amazing music. Headed by front man Vince Barnes on lead vocals along with members of legendary 70’s groupWishbone AshMuddy Manninen on lead guitar and Bob Skeet on the bass guitar. On the drum kit is Paul Newton who has quite the resume playing along with Prince, The Marionettes and Mungo Jerry. With this powerhouse lineup, the new album by these musicians is slated to be nothing short of a hit record.

The group was formed by Vince after seeing the Eagles perform on their 1994 “Hell Freezes Over” tour when they played Wembley. This amazing show had inspired him to live his own dream of playing in front of 10,000 plus fans, all singing along and having the time of their lives doing it. With a lot of hard work and passion for the pure sense of making a great record Free From Gravity has formally announced their debut album performance. On the 30th of June, they will take at the stage at London’s famed Monto Water Rats to share their dream with their fans and of course you!

The band would like to formally invite all music lovers, as well as media to come join them for this special not to be missed performance and be part of an event that is sure to be talked about for the rest of the summer.

A preview of the song, entitled “I Have A Dream”, which we heard (or rather watched) on Youtube, covers a wide kaleidoscope of rock sounds. It is a hybrid mix of Beach Boys vocals, a 60′s rock n’ roll back-beat, chunky guitar riffs from the 70′s and a lead solo straight from the 90′s stadium-rock era. The sound production and calibre of musicians playing on the recording, guarantee peek quality performance. We’ll have to patiently sit back and wait for the EP release in June to savor all the songs put together by Free From Gravity.

Judging from this first song release, the only hurdle this music may have to face could be due to it’s particular genre, which clearly appeals to old school rock n’ rollers like myself. In this day and age of electronic samples, beats and loops, the band might encounter some market resistance from the younger ‘Hiphop beat-generation’. But these boys have been around long enough to know that already, so I’m certain that they’re up and ready for battle. Along with all us battle scarred rock n’ roll warriors, still desperately hanging on to all our nostalgic flower power dreams from the past!

You can check out the band’s YouTube channel to watch their music video for “I Have a Dream” (http://youtu.be/VIihF78iKk0) shot by Sean Cronin, who was the lead singer ofThe Marionettes, who scored not only a top ten hit in the U.S. but in Germany as well. Sean has also worked with industry mega-stars Tinie Tempah and NDubz as of late. With names like this involved in Free From Gravity you can be sure that this should be a must see date on your calendar.
