Jona Da King is a hip-hop artist from Toronto, Ontario, based in Edmonton, Alberta. Jona is set to release his EP “Roots Of Love” which is scheduled to drop September 30th 2020. The artist has an eclectic musical palette which is colored by Hip-hop, R&B, Pop, as well as Jazz and Rock tones. We checked out his prime tracks in anticipation of the EP, and if the goal of this release is to make a breakout statement that Jona Da King is getting seriously started, he’s succeeded, delivering some of the smoothest, most mellifluous urban sounds we’ve heard in music

Berani – “Cut And Taste” strikes an incredible balance of disparate elements

Berani is an electronic beat maker with a diverse sound spectrum and a tendency to produce bouncing rhythms or spacious and relaxing aural experiences. In a short time span, this emerging artist out of Byron Bay in Australia, has discerning music fans and casual listeners paying attention. The sound design throughout his latest single “Cut And Taste” is what we’ve come to expect from this creative top tier producer: popping percussion, basslines that melt like butter and a healthy dose of twisted horns to make everything bump in a soul-like fashion. Sprinkled around the track are sonic effects that keep

EsZ – “Liquor & Emotions” – introspective and emotional

Hip-hop has been cranking out bangers and high energy anthems for decades, but the average genre historian is well aware that dark or emotional thoughts on a chill backdrop is not a foreign concept for the game. After all, profound moodiness feels rather natural for a culture that grew out of urban plight and the trauma of purposely disenfranchised people. It makes sense that at least some mellow tunes in the genre, reflect deep-thinking speculation, in what artist EsZ, describes as thoughts on “life, growth and fake friends” in his track “Liquor & Emotions”. The song is a drunk text

Quad – “Love” embellishes each track with his personal revelations

Acemattz & Bipha shine on “Tshanana”

Watching Acemattz & Bipha perform in any of their videos is like watching friends realize they’re onto something big time. They are accomplished rappers individually, on their own terms, and as collaborators, as a unit, their styles gel perfectly. They’re not just comfortable performing together—they are feeding off of each other, refusing to be one-upped, beaming and grinning and head-bobbing as they take turns impressing one another. By the end of each of their performances, their formation into a real show-stopping combination seems inevitable. In the new wave rap scene, there is plenty of talent to go around, Acemattz &

FuzzKill – “The Get Better” reaches all the expected heights!

FuzzKill is a four-piece rock band that started in Boston, MA. Introduced to one another through musical theatre, the band’s sound is firmly rooted in early 2000’s pop-punk influences. They released their debut studio album, “Happen”, in early 2019, and their sophomore album, “The Get Better”, just dropped on September 19th 2020. We have all heard the biggest punk bands of the 90’s and early 00’s. Their music mainly consisted of driving drums, distorted pop-punk guitar work and a set of memorable lyrics to go with the angst-filled high energy vocals. Today punk bands are a rarity, and any good

Dan Friese – ‘Jane Songs’ is something to be treasured!

Dan Friese is an Oregon-based songwriter, performer and multi-instrumentalist. In April of 2020, he released his debut EP, ‘Happiness’, a collection of self-reflective psychedelic indie-folk tracks. His first full-length effort, ‘Jane Songs’, was released on September 18th, and is available on all major platforms, along with the singles “Streetlight” and “I Can’t Say”. There’s a lot to appreciate on the new album, and Dan’s voice is arguably the most attractive aspect. Moreover, his vocals are often enhanced by inspiring songwriting and raw emotion, not to mention a wealth of down to earth acoustic guitar strumming. Dan Friese has an organic,

INTERVIEW: C.E.N. – the voice of the people

Born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and currently a resident of Dallas, Texas, C.E.N’s natural proficiency over poetry allowed him to produce meaningful and profound lyrics. Although he initially took the initiative to become a music artist for fame and fortune, he later realized that all he desires as a musician is to be respected and valued for the art he brings to the table. His music is deep lyrically and spiritually. Can you tell us a bit about where you come from and how you got started? C.E.N.: I was born in Oklahoma City, OK, and was raised in a

Hitrocker – “Project One” – breathtaking sound design!

Hitrocker is a German based producer who creates mainly within the EDM subgenres of House, Electro and Deep House. His first album, entitled “Project One” was released at the end of July, while “Project Two” is also out now. When I clicked on the playlist of “Project One”, I was met with song titles that were merely numbers – such as “Project 1.1” or “Project One.Four”. This falsely led me to expect generically themed instrumentals, simply meant to rock the dancefloor. Wrong. Well not totally. They do rock the dancefloor. But they also do a whole lot more. These are

Rashod Holmes Announces New Single ‘The One’

The soul singer relives how he met his wife and started his family on a tender new song. Rashod Holmes is known for bringing romance to life with his evocative voice, but he has never told as personal a story as the one he tells with his latest single. ‘The One’ is a true life love story that acknowledges the struggles and triumphs that go into building a long-lasting relationship. “I found the one for me” Rashod sings. “She is the girl of my dreams.” While Rashod is convinced that he has found the perfect partner, there is much more

CADILLAC BLUES BAND TX: Authentic Vintage Blues And Rock!

Consider this for openers. The Cadillac Blues Band’s live performances includes their signature bright red, 1962 CADILLAC ELDORADO CONVERTIBLE, parked out front. So right from the start you know we’re talking authentic vintage blues and rock.

The CADILLAC BLUES BAND TX , which was formed in 2008, has a line-up that includes Rick Cloutier, Keith Donnagan, Bob Powell and Arron the Irish love god! The band members total over 44 years of music experiences. Based in a small town just north of Houston, they also have a strong home town following in south east Texas. From south Houston, Spring, The Woodlands, Conroe as well as Huntsville.

The CADILLAC BLUES BAND TX play a wide range of cover versions and original material while gigging around the map. Having four vocalists increase their versatility, allowing the band to perform songs from many artists, such as; Eric Clapton, ZZ Top, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Tom Petty, JJ Cale, The Beatles, Elvis, BB King, The Eagles, Johnny Cash, Dwite Yokum, ACDC, Muddy Waters, Elmore James and many more.

The band are currently recording at Sugar Hill Studios in Houston, where they have 14 original songs in the works and are looking at an album release in early 2013.

The CADILLAC BLUES BAND TX have already made some original songs available on their website. Three of which are currently on rotation at the popular indie music station, Jamsphere Rock Radio. Namely, “Joes In The Hooskow,” “Two Beers And A Bottle Of Wine” and the latest acoustic ballad, “Words.” This is an unpretentious and beautiful song without all the fanfare. The words are simple, yet deeply moving and powerful. Listen to this song carefully and it will definitely touch your heart.

The band’s most famous original composition to date, is of course the driving rock number, “Red Cadillac.”

One thing to be mentioned is how versatile a band like the CADILLAC BLUES BAND TX are. Take a listen and watch their videos, and you’ll see that they are mainly a group that like to have fun both with their lyrics and with the way they perform. Their live version of ZZ Top’s “La Grange” paints a vivid picture of the band mates on the stage, having fun entertaining the crowd.

They have a personality all their own. And they know how to put some heartfelt emotions into their music too. “Two Beers And A Bottle Of Wine” and “Words” are both inspirational songs that are good to listen to no matter what mood you’re in, where you’re at, or what you’re doing.

It wouldn’t surprise me a bit to hear more CADILLAC BLUES BAND TX songs on mainstream radio, when the new album is released. As their music is made to entertain. But until then, in the meantime you can catch them at their website or if you’re really lucky, maybe live, in a town near you.

Just keep a lookout for their signature bright red, 1962 CADILLAC ELDORADO CONVERTIBLE, parked out front!
