Shehzad Bhanji – “Dreams” – impeccable tone and technique

Shehzad Bhanji is a guitar virtuoso. He is mostly known for his proficiency on the electric guitar. Though his playing style at times would tend to put him in the category of guitar shredder, Shehzad is not from the pure shredder school, where most of the playing consists of running musical scales at blistering speed. His playing is more melodic and soulful, though he will shred if it fits the context of the song or passage being played. His latest album, “Dreams” highlights his skills and playing style clearly. His mastery and command of the guitar here, is unreal. His

King Femi – “Young Queens” highlights every element of his artistry!

King Femi is a Hip-Hop/Rap artist from Atlanta, GA. He doesn’t have a comfort zone. As a restlessly eccentric artist, he’s not afraid to change course, or to experiment. The elasticity of his catalogue keeps him tethered to hip-hop, as he bounces around all of its facets, like many of his successful contemporaries. With all this willful blurring underway, it seems more than fair for one of rap’s most versatile and dynamic figures to pivot towards the perceived success formula. His latest release is the trap flavored “Young Queens”. The track dazzles in its tightrope effort to remain endearingly deviant

Damian Sage – It’s impossible to listen to “Drive” without being genuinely moved

Listening to the single “Drive”, is a whole different and beyond glorious experience. Singer and songwriter, Damian Sage really outdoes himself with this one. The record, tugs at my heartstrings in the best and most beautiful gut-wrenching ways. I can feel the emotion as he sings each and every lyric. Released through Dark Spark Music, a record label headed by former Guns N Roses manager, and Grammy Award winner, Vicky Hamilton, “Drive” certainly gives me the chills each time listen to it. The two simple opening lines deliver the kind of powerful imagery most lyricists strive most of their lives

COLIN TYLER: “Live From Studio A” Ready For Release

Colin Tyler is a Chicago based singer-songwriter. Just like his music, his philosophy is uniformly unique. Colin only records live in a single take and he does not edit the tracks in post production. He also films all of his major releases. He believes that the performance is equally important to music as auditory expression. Furthermore, human imperfections should be celebrated and not concealed.

Colin Tyler’s new upcoming release set for the 28th of June – “Live from Studio A”, is a multimedia release that visually captures the performance of a live studio recording. It was recorded 100% live in a single take to analog tape. There is no post production editing. What you hear and see is exactly how it was performed in the moment it was recorded.

Live recording with artists and instruments all in the same room, at exactly the same time, has become somewhat of a rare and very noble art through the years. Only a handful of musicians still make use of this practice today.

The evolution in the way music is produced has drastically changed recording concepts. On the one hand it has had positive effects, allowing musicians of all levels to put together songs and albums in their bedrooms, without the necessity for expensive equipment, recording and production services or in some cases, even the need for real musicians to accompany them.

On the other, it has allowed just about anybody, without even understanding the absolute basics of music. nor knowing how to play an instrument, how to construct a melody, the importance of harmony, chords, keys and scales within a musical arrangement etc, to produce and publish music.

In fact to be a singer today, you don’t even need to sing properly! There’s already a computer software that will make that happen for.

All steps of music production today can be computer controlled and automated, and in most cases are. A quick run, down the radio charts will have you discover a horde of anonymous hits produced this way. Each one resembling the other. Well if we’re all using Autotune presets, the same audio loops and wav samples, it becomes very difficult to sound different, innovative or creative.

Revolutionary Chicago based singer-songwriter, COLIN TYLER.

Then along comes Colin Tyler, a simple thoroughbred musician. An artist who knows how to sing and play an instrument rather decently. He writes a plain straight melody and a couple of harmony lines, then gathers his band of players and singers into one room. The engineer does a countdown and hits record on an old analogue tape recorder, while the band deliver the song from start to finish.

The difference in the end result is immense. I daresay abyssal. The old story of digital versus analogue is an absolute no contest, in my book, when you’re dealing with real instruments played by real musicians.

The dynamics of analogue reaches spaces in the sound spectrum digital hasn’t even discovered yet. Colin Tyler’s “Live from Studio A” song tracks play testimony to this. The warmth, depth and vibrancy of every instrument and voice is enhanced and amplified to stimulate your aural sensations into a subtle, yet mesmerizing sound orgasm.

The same effect has been achieved with the visual media presented in the videos of the songs. The color tones are warm and pastel-like. The images are clean and uncluttered without superfluous zooms, jitters and special effects. Everything is concentrated on the musicians and the music.

Considering that I spent 20 years of my life working in analogue recording studios, on either side of the desk and the fact that I still firmly believe the only way to listen to recorded music should be on vinyl, it becomes clear that I rate Colin Tyler as an unsung hero amongst his contemporaries.

His choice of going with analogue and recording everything in one take, is a courageous attempt, in an era of computer produced music, to restore an art form back to it’s rightful owners – the true musical artists.

Too frequently today we refer to are all singers and music performers as artists. Artists are persons having superior skills or abilities, or who are capable of producing superior work in their field of choice. Mastering Autotune or Protools, makes you a computer software artist not a musical artist.

Colin Tyler is a true musical artist, but over and above the purist choices in devolving his music, it should also be noted that Colin creates profound and endearing songs that will captivate and hypnotize your senses.

His sound, lyrics and arrangements are solid, simple, pure and engaging.

Or as the famous expression claims. Colin Tyler’s music is “Art for art’s sake.”

A Modern day masterpiece.

Bring it on!
