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

MAZE – “From Start To Perfection” – a grand symphony of alternative and melodic rock abrasion!

Gary, Paul, Jack, Lee and Sam make up the 5 piece band from London UK, called MAZE. The band started out as a recording project, but the response and reaction they received induced them to start gigging and they have since been offered plenty of gigs for 2020. In the meantime they have released their 4 track EP, entitled “From Start To Perfection”. The recording is a rich quilt of guitar-driven sounds and rock influences. What’s thrilling about the production is not only are the clear punchy sonics, where each instrument is captured at its most resonant – but there’s

“God Of Drum”, Get Tribal Produce a Wonderful Fusion of Cultures!

Get Tribal is a transcendental music project from the US, created under the direction of Kari Hohne, author of mythological studies and books about dream interpretation. She combines ancient shamanistic drumming patterns and tonal vibrations with modern technology and ethnic instruments to create a world fusion sound with emotional and energetic impact. As the creator of many affirmation apps that have achieved new and noteworthy status at iTunes, she continues to use sound, music, dreams and myth as a way of connecting with our energetic awareness. Kari is best known for her work in dream interpretation where her app Way of Dreams is in the top of the Lifestyle category at both Amazon and ITunes.

Excellent for Yoga, movement, dance or just chilling out, Kari Hohne’s Get Tribal project delivers some songs that can be used as peaceful background or contemplation music and others which are even adapt at being exotic dance tunes. On “God Of Drum”, Get Tribal produce a wonderful fusion of different cultures, rhythms and beats that are simply intoxicating, healing, dream invoking and smooth flowing.

The “God Of Drum” album consists of 10 tracks which draw influences from cultures that are spread across American Indian, Gaelic, China, Celtic, Africa, Babylon, Anatolia, Maya and India. The tracks which are percussion driven are designed to stimulate the 7 major Chakras, the Dantien, the Soul Star and Spirit Chakras. Like the Ancient tribes who revered thunder as the divine element that activated spring’s rebirth, Get Tribal aim to use percussion sounds to synchronize the heart, mind and soul with the same vital life force.

In fact each track has a specific purpose, for example; to awaken passion, to release blockages, to activate power, to center in wellness, to achieve enlightenment and so on and so forth. Some chakra music can be challenging to listen to. With this recording by Get Tribal, even if you can’t distinguish a chakra from a raspberry, it won’t matter in the least.

God Of Drum” invites you into a perfect place where you can infuse your mind and soul with healing. The music allows you to connect with the invisible dimension of peace inside of you; at any time you want to access relaxation and positive emotions. The beats and rhythms will wake up every cell in your body and you’ll feel more energized than ever. This music seems to tap into something primal, making you feel the connection between your body and the earth.

Although curious about chakras, I don’t know much about them; what I do know is that this music reaches in and moves me in unexpected ways. Each track possesses its own complexity of rhythms and sounds, while some also include vocal interludes.

This is obviously not an album where you pick out favorite tracks above others, but I have to admit a softer spot for “The Flow Of Expression”, “Open To Wonder”, “Transcending Boundaries” and above all, “Endless Reflection”.

The rhythms in this album are quite compelling. “God Of Drum” is a wonderful, moving experience. Get Tribal and Kari Hohne capture the essence of rhythm, and sends listeners on a deep inner journey. This is a beautiful recording that increasingly grows on you. Highly recommended for anyone interested in dance, percussion, spirituality, meditation, or just plain good vibes!
