D-Witt flexes the pen of a budding cinematic storyteller

I recently heard about an artist called D-Witt from Rockford, IL.  Illinois is the home of some prestigious sons who have left unforgettable marks on hip-hop’s history. I’m expecting an unfiltered rebel who is unafraid to bare his soul and burn down buildings. A fearless heart is a quality that makes fearless art, and I hope that’s exactly what D-Witt has arrived to present us.  So I press play on the first track called “Enemy”. The sound is open and strong-willed. There’s no doubting that D-Witt has something to say. The amount of care that goes into his lyricism stamps

Mortinus – “Star Chariot (Yellow Odyssey)” and “Oceania” – gently beatific music

As the months pass slowly into years, it becomes increasingly plain to all concerned that Danish electronic music producer, Mortinus is taking his craft very seriously. He has been extraordinarily prolific and has maintained an enviable level of quality in his releases. When approaching his two singles “Star Chariot (Yellow Odyssey)” and “Oceania” the question that arises is how will Mortinus sound fare in the altered musical terrain of 2020? Well the two new singles, are fine examples of some of the best ambient, chillout, downtempo and cinematic instrumental music being made today. Mortinus’ sound is alive and well, and his

Whether or not you’ve followed Stiff from the beginning, one thing has been apparent through the highs and the lows: he’s talented and confident – his latest single “Faith In Me” is a perfect example of that. Stiff Lauren once again takes

Cyrus R.O. – “Bones” is still a skillfully crafted song

I think I expected this music to be sterile and methodical. However, to my surprise, Cyrus R.O.’s new single “Bones” from his upcoming debut album “Deconvolution” is blazingly irradiated like bundle of energy that expertly marries the organic and synthetic. Underneath it all, a darker lyrical narrative dealing with “a character struggling with their gender identity, and the fear of social turmoil that comes with that.” Everything just grooves so well together; it’s a blend of sounds that I haven’t heard done this well from any progressive, jazz, or electronic artist in quite some time. It’s a masterful melding of electronic machinery with

Temperature Falls Release The Video For Their Latest Single “1-2-3”

The sound and atmosphere of Temperature Falls is built around somewhat gritty, blended organic-electronic sounding tracks that hearken the listener back to earlier times. Their latest track, ‘1-2-3’, is a seductive track that pulls the listener in with an eerie melody, sultry vocals and an ethereal reverberating atmosphere. Mixed beautifully, this is the perfect example of what to expect from this indie trip-hop/alternative rock duo from Oslo, Norway, made up of vocalist/lyricist Camilla, and multi-instrumentalist Ian J. Ward. ‘1-2-3’ is a gorgeous, melancholic song that is heart wrenchingly beautiful. Temperature Falls is one of those bands that are absolutely necessary

JARIKO Presents A Feel-Good Dance Pop Style!

Jariko is an American singer/songwriter who began his musical journey at 13 years old armed with nothing more than grim determination and a spray painted, technicolor boom box as his P.A. system. While his passions for music run across the board, Jariko found solace, at a very young age, in the artistry of internationally acclaimed musicians Elton John and Darren Hayes of Savage Garden.

Jariko’s creative development was stunted temporarily after losing nearly every possession he had to a house fire which left him displaced and devastated, but not long after, Jariko finally made it to California to pursue writing his self-titled Ep, after performing successfully in Chicago with Journey.

I will be honest right out from the start. I can’t objectively talk about any of Jariko’s work, as I do believe if this guy has the right management and marketing team behind him, that he WILL be the next big thing in dance-pop music!

Ne-yo, Bruno Mars, Chris Brown, and Jason Derulo are the crowd Jariko could step into with ease, right now. His dance-pop rhythms are soaked in vivid personality, catchy melodies, and a vocal prowess that will leave you breathless. I’m not usually a fan of mainstream sounding pop artists, but I was absolutely blown away by this 5-track Ep, from start to finish!

 Jariko presents a style that’s both easy going yet makes you want to jump up and start dancing. He and his production team have masterfully created songs that are very easy to listen to and enjoy, and just make you feel so good inside too!

Jariko has the charm, the swagger, and his voice is really out of this world. Each song on this Ep could stand on its own as a single. My personal favorites are “Contagious Love,” “Sick Obsession” and “Angels” because they’re all very emotional, and you can feel the honesty in his voice, which has a huge range. He is also gritty, smooth, soulful, sharp, and gentle when it’s called upon, and he does all of this while maintaining a relaxed and comfortable vocal timbre. Though containing only 5 songs, there is a song for all moods here; party mood, sad mood and love mood. You really couldn’t ask for more from an Ep!

Overall this Ep finds Jariko taking a particular style of dance-pop that today is often associated with just about everything that’s flawed and disposable, and applies rhythmic, melodic and vocal beauty to transform it into something much more interesting . This gives his music the effect of being modern enough for dancers, only looking for beats and rhythms, yet it is musically rich enough for casual listening as well.

It borrows from the past, remains in the present and nods to the future. As and when, Jariko chooses to expand his music from this level, there most definitely will be even better things likely to come.

Any objective person who listens to Jariko’s self-titled Ep, will instinctively feel the vibe and talent contained therein. Those like me, simply fall hopelessly in love with it!
