Frado180 – an instrumental artist and aspiring Hip hop producer from New York City, NY

Starting out as a passionate hip-hip DJ at the age of 15, Frado180 worked hard at the local gas station in order to own his first Turntable. And he never had to look back as a local group 2 in Room with hit single “Wiggle it” fame soon discovered his talent and helped him produce his first demo. At that moment his propulsive force of music truly began to take shape by its zig-zagging through genres, settling on moments of analogue clarity as well as digital refraction. Frado180 got his first real break when he landed a gig at a

Nachamuni – “Deep Down” a total floor filler with an infectious groove!

“Deep Down” is the new EDM single from electronic music producer Nachamuni, who is based in Vienna Austria. The track extends the reach of his signature sound. Most significantly, the Deep House track showcases a shift toward the high-minded, super-precise catchy pop production vibe of most modern electronic producers. The growling basslines have the potential to draw law enforcement officers to your doorstep, depending on the decibel level and kindness of your neighbors. Its structure dominates the landscape with both breathtaking impact and precision. The track refuses to recycle an old beat, gradually building from a melodic and soulful vocal

Kambiz Mirzaei – “The Lost Ambient” – a dominating melodic mellowness behind a rising wave of dynamic, ascending energy.

The Toronto based composer, Kambiz Mirzaei, has navigated between two musical cultures: from authentic transcendental Middle Eastern melodies to North American flavored ambient, electronic and orchestral arrangements. His collaboration with Jamshid Andalibi in 1999 initiated an alternative approach to traditional use of the folk instrument, Ney, in modern compositions. If you’re looking for an instrumental record that explores cross-culture electronic and ambient themes cohesively, look no further than the album – “The Lost Ambient” by Kambiz Mirzaei. I am astounded that Mirzaei isn’t talked about more often, because there is so much innovation in his compositions and production that it’s

MAXIM SENIN From Latvia With Love, Heartbreak And Other Stories…

Having grown up in Riga, Latvia (formally the USSR) and now residing in Long Beach California for the past twelve years, Maxim Senin understood early on, the value of learning to play and perform music. With both his parents playing the piano, it was their desire to give him a solid musical education, and for him to understand and appreciate music; learning with classical music training.

When he was in the first grade, his parents got him a violin, but he quickly lost interest. They then attempted to teach Maxim the piano. The problem was that the family was poor and could not afford a piano for him to practice on. While in the fourth grade, his parents bought him a clarinet on which he learned how to play classical and jazz relatively well.

At this point, Maxim’s interest in music subsided. It wasn’t until college, when many of his friends played music and were in bands, that his interest in music was once again stoked. Since then he has not looked back and continues to write and perform music. A software engineer by trade, and also a private pilot, Maxim Senin’s love for music is now a large part of his life and is deeply engraved in his daily thoughts and actions.

A browse around Maxim’s website or the iTunes platform, will quickly evidence Senin’s music releases. From the Ep, “The Taming Of The Wolf” in 2011, to the singles, “Tarantula” and “Chains Of Love” in 2012, right up until “Call Of The Wild” and “Karaoke Queen” in 2013. Maxim Senin plies his trade with reflective passion for themes that mainly imply stories of love and betrayal. But some of his songs also denote a sense of humor and shimmering rays of hope.

On his Ep and single releases, Senin displays a laid-back and sensual style of playing and singing. Tasteful strumming and picking on his acoustic guitar, electric solos that say everything they need to say and a voice that will not necessarily stir you, yet it’s exactly the way to sing whatever song he’s singing.

So, there are no surprises here, no experimenting with new sounds or genres, no pretense, no pyrotechnics, nothing but inspired playing of some great folk-rock tunes. Maxim Senin doesn’t hype up his sound with cheesy modern production values, it’s just the basic ingredients, like melody, rhythm, and groove, which he uses on all his tracks, yet somehow there are those little differences that always keep his music fresh. Senin’s music is never loud or heavy, but it never goes into the realm of what I would consider soft.

While so many artists out there lose themselves trying to change or pimp-up their image and sound to attract new fans, Maxim Senin chooses to remain himself, to do what he does well, and it comes so naturally to him…that he does it without even breaking a sweat!

Senin’s music is filled with understated, rich, and rewarding gems that probably few have ever heard up until now. Unfortunately Senin’s brand of rhythmic storytelling falls outside the realms of the current, ‘tried-and-tested’ territory, of Top 20 radio music. It’s too bad for music lovers, because his snapshots of love, heartbreak, and life are unconventionally addicting.

Without a doubt Maxim Senin’s gentle troubadour style is oddly satisfying in an industry overflowing with big beats and heavy basslines. Give him a listen.
