PROJECT GRAND SLAM RE-RELEASES “GET OUT!”

Project Grand Slam, the acclaimed band led by celebrated bassist/composer Robert Miller, has re-released their single “Get Out!”, Miller’s anti-Trump political protest song. Like many Americans, Miller has been profoundly upset by so much that the president has said and done. In response, he wrote “Get Out!”, which does not mention Trump by name but nevertheless contains a clear message. Says Miller, “I wrote the song last fall in response to all the insanity of this Administration, which I thought at the time couldn’t get any worse. But with the ongoing impeachment inquiry the song is even more relevant today”,

Monjyoti – “Neighbor Syndrome” is meticulously structured

Monjyoti Bhattacharyya known by his stage name, Monjyoti, released his second official single “Neighbor Syndrome”, taken from his upcoming album, “Hypnosis”, recorded in collaboration with music producer Papu Gogoi. I don’t even need to hear the rest of the album. This single is simply a dexterous, dynamic and sublime smorgasbord of instrumentation and lyrical canny, on a level I’ve not heard in a long time. Music can’t always be this good because we would have nothing by which to benchmark its ingenuity. There are sections that are nice mellow journeys to somewhere else and there are downright monstrous sections that

Omar Bowing – “Paradox” – is simply breathtaking in its composition and emotive power

Atmospheric, ethereal, moody, dark, progressive … these are all words that come to mind listening to the opening bars of “Paradox” – the latest track from Omar Bowing, featuring singer Tyson Yen. The music is as one would expect from this consummate composer and Guitarviol player – engulfing and entrancing. Using a whole host of rock driven instrumentation, it should not be surprising that the soundscape is lush, expansive and blasting. “The idea of the song,” explains Bowing, “is about the recognition of the power of a Paradox to challenge or even destroy a concept, idea, belief, etc., that is

On “Banksters” (feat. Kham), ABSOLOOT Tackles The Corporate Money Grabbers!

A successful record executive, artist manager, and artist himself, Absoloot embraces an industry that has made and broke countless individuals before him. Having worked in the industry for years, accomplishing album sales both domestically and internationally as an independent, Absoloot continues to progress forward gaining more momentum as he makes moves. Hailing from the Sunshine State, the Jook Capital, Absoloots’ sound blends the new school flavor with a hint of old school, in every aspect from delivery to production.

Just the other day I was reading about how Detroit has lost 25 percent of its population in the last decade, due to the foreclosure epidemic that has leveled its communities, and which was a direct product of the racist, predatory lending practices of just about every major bank there. The banks knew these sub-prime loans would fail when they made them, but they didn’t care because of the massive profits they knew they would be making. I couldn’t help thinking how these banking guys get away with anything just short of murder (and sometimes much worse), yet, apart from the odd die-hard, the major part of the hip-hop movement was paying their undivided attention to ‘big booties, fast cars and hard drugs’. I was wondering if there were any socially conscious rappers out there who still cared about the serious banking and economic issues, capable of destroying an entire nation. And then, even if he cared enough to put it into song, could he do this without preaching or beseeching, but just lay it on the line for listeners to clearly understand?

Well when you least expect it, somebody comes along and puts the record straight. Absoloot shows that Rap is still a potent tool for distributing knowledge and making social commentary, with the release of his latest single, “Banksters” (feat. Kham). He tackles the corporate money-grabbing issues, with an honest, smooth, and almost flamboyant ease that you would have expected to come from one of his peers instead.

Ladies and Gentleman, this is what hip hop should be; informative, makes you think, brings some important issues to light, and then sounds good while doing it. Rather than all the nonsensical, women degrading, how many baby mamas you can make, how much money you got, shake your thang stuff, you hear from most other artists.

Absoloot really hits home with “Banksters” (feat. Kham). The song is mature sounding, has an amazing piano-driven beat, great vocals, catchy harmonies, and is pieced together with top notch production. Most importantly, Absoloot manages to bring you the scenes of real life, in its entire inglorious splendor, from a perspective of one who is still very much in touch, with what’s happening in the world that surrounds him.

It’s not only that however, as Absoloot shows here, that he can tell a story with the best of them. And that probably will be his major advantage over most other rappers: He can tell a story with almost intellectual poetic ability and make you feel like you’re there, watching it all happen.
