Voice in the Attic – “Warts & All” – his strongest record thus far

I discovered BC Bogey aka Voice in the Attic during 2015, listening to the single “Over”, and fell in love with this project instantly. BC Bogey is a critically acclaimed songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, award-winning music video director and classically trained singer, who works with Grammy-winning musicians and sound engineers from Europe and the USA. The way he can easily glide through the organic chill of some songs, into the homey, campfire-like tunes, then to the fully fleshed-out modern twist of others, will always surprise me. He puts so much effort into the music and the lyrics, it’s always worth supporting him.

ECHOGLASS – “Hard” – Blistering guitars, muscular bass and drums

The Lancashire, Blackburn-based collective, ECHOGLASS, is a musical vehicle for core members DA McKenna, Remmy and Bo, who release their creations through Darkhouse Recordings. Their work is musically and lyrically distinct, and from the beginning they have always transcended the generic constraints of UK indie pop, punk and rock. Reinventing their blended sound on each release. While most of their contemporaries are electronic based clones, ECHOGLASS’ latest single “Hard”, inspires and delights with its guitar driven engine room. Going against the current tide, the band’s music is intense, introspective and acutely observant – a wholly alternative world view. The lead vocals are

Kee Beez – “Keep It 100” – cocked, locked, and ready to rock!

Kee Beez grew up in the SF Bay area California with his ability to produce, perform and record. The Rap and Hiphop artist is fresh off his 10 track project “Keep It 100” from Da Kee Records. The recording has a refreshing flow to it that hip hop albums lately have been totally lacking. It exhibits a hip hop artist, holding out his pen-game and showing you a compass pointing to the true core of the hip hop culture that most albums fail to point to as of recent years. And it’s not just someone barely mumbling over lyrics with

Abeille – “Feels” – sensitivity and consummate craftsmanship

Abeille (meaning ‘honeybee’ in French) is an indie jazz-pop duo out of Nashville and Portland. This long distance project is made up of Emily Jewel and Samuel Terrazzino, who currently released their debut single “Feels”. “This song goes past the meaning of just two individuals finding each other,” explains the duo, continuing: “At the time this song was written we had just started playing music together again after a multi-year hiatus of minimal contact. This song was the turning point in our relationship from being just friends to something more.” They have since gone from being just friends, to a

DopeAMean – “Blue Faces” – There are plenty of highlights to be raved about!

DopeAMean born Josephis Wade, started rapping in 2004 with a rap group formerly known as Y.B.E. (Young Black Entrepreneurs). A decorated US Army Veteran, Wade was born in Columbus Georgia USA, to Lisa Denise Ceesay Pollard – a single mother. Raised in Metro-Atlanta, Ga and Auburn, Al, DopeAMean currently resides in Denver, and is the proud owner of the record label, Every-Thing Dope LLC. His latest project is 14 track album, “Blue Faces”. It’s enthralling on a sonic level, and the rapper keeps up lyrically, his flow more than malleable enough to fit with any groove put forward. It is

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

Alysha Releases Official Video for “David Attenborough”

A bit over a month ago, London born Alysha, a 17 year old teen with enormous talent as a singer and songwriter, would have probably not imagined for her career to catapult in such a sort of magical way. Every artist, before they begin their road to stardom and even throughout, always dream all they want to do to achieve their goals. We hear many stories of singers that were many times turned down by the industry, one that said industry sometimes gets a tough reality check, when they realize that the artist is now a superstar (on a different

“I Don’t Want To Be A Celebrity” by Vs.Unleashed

The concept of Vs.Unleashed started in a small room in NY city, years ago when Aramis Alexander decided to go ahead and follow his passion for music. Since a little child, he had always been hearing his songs and melodies inside his head, so eventually he set on to find the best way to turn these words, ideas and sounds into actual song. Fortunately, technology got better and cheaper as the years went on, so he purchased the gear and computers that were available at the time. Not knowing anything about producing, Aramis did lots of research and learned the basics of music making.

Today he has recorded and produced some 30 songs on his own.  Vs.Unleashed’s influences are the 80’s rock and pop genres, but Aramis moves from classical to heavy-metal, as he reckons that what he does is not so much about a genre but just about good music, regardless of the genre.

Aramis chose the name(brand and logo) ‘Vs.Unleashed’ (against, opposing, rebel), for the simple reason that he realized that the way he is bringing this project about, is different than what one would expect on a music industry POV, for example, they won’t do any live performances in the beginning, instead they will try and produce a video for every song they launch.

To be honest, when you see a black man stand up and NOT blurt out a swaggering rap line, but instead he blows you away with a rock riff, you have no choice but to sit up and take notice! We’re so locked into stereotypes that when something like Vs.Unleashed comes along, our world just turns inside out and upside down. This gives Aramis an enormous advantage, in one swift action he has already captured our attention, now all he has to do is hold it there with music that counts!

So what exactly does Vs.Unleashed do, to hold the initial captivating advantage on would-be listeners?

First of all, how many artists out there can say that they have not had any other musical influences while writing their own music? Can you find me an artist that does not have music that reflects their influences? It is highly unlikely. Music is a source of inspiration, and influences. Musicians always have an influence and it will always be seen and heard through their craft. Vs.Unleashed follows suit in this obvious and common trait. If after hearing Vs.Unleashed, you are reminded of artists such as Michael Jackson, Prince, U2, the Rolling Stones or Duran Duran, remember it is a positive thing. To be in the same caliber of those artists is truly a compliment.

In fact “I Don’t Want To Be A Celebrity” by Vs.Unleashed encapsulates all the above-mentioned influences and more, and it is an impressive accomplishment indeed. The song is a rare example of timeless truths expressed in a modern day format, and Vs.Unleashed aka Aramis Alexander proves to be an extremely gifted man, playing all instruments, as well as writing and producing the song. He has also produced an eye-catching video to match!

Vs.Unleashed currently records and produces entirely in his room using Logic Pro. However with the ‘bigger sound’ ideas he has in mind for future songs, Aramis has currently turned to Indiegogo (you can find his project here )to help accumulate the funds which will allow him to record and produce with the help of a real orchestra and a professional studio, as well as make good quality videos for each song release.

Vs.Unleashed has the amazing ability to take elements of 80’s rock and make them sound completely modern. This guy is capable of doing it all, from the music to the lyrics and his serving it up in a completely different way than we’re accustomed to. So let’s start giving the man his due, grab the songs and support his project on Indiegogo too!
