Red Martian: “Ghost Into The Fog” – showcases wonderful arrangements and sonic textures

On the fringes of music you can find some really spectacular things. It’s a journey that’s often worth taking- trying to scope out artists doing something unique and passionate in the face of everything corporate and plain. Here’s one of those few examples of true gems that can only really be found with a little searching. Formed in 1999, Red Martian came out of the DIY punk scene in Seattle, WA. Drawing influences from My Bloody Valentine, New York Dolls, and Iggy Pop. Having previously released five CDs, six vinyl LPs, and four acetate limited-edition EPs on the band’s own


EsZ: “MIA NIA” – precise, sharp-witted, but lighthearted lyrics !

Brooklyn-based hip hop artist EsZ (Erron’s Attic) melodically paints a story of a past relationship / lover who he prefers to call “MIA NIA” –  which is explained as ” MIA ” ( Missing In Action ), ” NIA” ( Name Is Anonymous ). One thing you cannot fail to mention when talking about EsZ, and even before you hear the lyrics, is the production. Again the track here is beautiful, bouncy and fresh. EsZ is one of the smartest young emcee’s around. His rhymes are almost always metaphoric. They are so superior to really everyone else out there in the rap business.


Terri B! – “I’m Coming Back” – her sound is smooth, strong, and assured!

I’ve been playing, producing, promoting and reviewing music longer than I care to remember. I know what it takes to make music and I know what it is like to have critics acclaim…or slam it. So each time I’m presented with a new review I tremble with the fear that I may have to casually denigrate the hard work of another. However, when I read the name, Carrillo Music, my heart almost skips a beat, for I know that the chances of any negative analysis are thrown completely out of the window. This independent electronic music label, based in Phoenix,


GZRUS: “GZ UP” – a fresh sound to serve our dance floors!

GZRUS (pronounced like Toyrs R Us but with a G’d up twist). San Francisco DJs and producers Trevor Simpson and Kosplay joined forces for what initially was a G House project. Their first project was an official remix for Carnage featuring Migos “Bricks” on Ultra Records. This was followed by a guest spot on Carnage’s Incredible XM show which gained GZRUS accolades from around the globe. The duo maintained a low profile and released bi-weekly mashups and edits that became blog favorites with support from the likes of Diplo, Steve Aoki, TWRK, A-Trak and Destructo. To keep their fast growing

Ricky Jarman: “Get To Know Ya” – a shake-your-ass, R&B inflected Pop track!

Sought after Pop-R&B singer Ricky Jarman was once contended by both Lou Pearlman of Transcontinental Records (responsible for signing N’sync, Backstreet boys, and Britney Spears) and Christian ”Dio” Diodatti of Caliber Records. (Dio has done remixes for Michael Jackson and Mary J. Blige among others). After much self-reflection, he decided to work with Dio of Caliber Records in a boy band called UNITED. At the time time he was able to meet and work with people such as Andrea Martin (song writer/voice coach for Whitney Houston and Mariah Cary), and Glenn Douglas Packard (choreographer for Britney Spears).

“Don’t Be Late” – The Inoculated Canaries single, set for official release on the 23rd of October!

The beauty in the new The Inoculated Canaries single, set for official release on the 23rd of October, lies in the way in which it navigates dynamics, songwriting, and performance energy. Even in its mellower moments, “Don’t Be Late” brims with a subdued tension that is only relieved by explosive energy. The way in which bandleader, songwriter, guitarist and singer, Michael Rubin and his cohort, on drums, bass and saxophone, James Terranova, navigates the dichotomy between soothing lullaby and devastating intensity within song form, expresses a compositional maturity that belies the classic rock format within which they would be more

Woren Webbe Gets You Hooked In The Emotions Of His Songs

Woren Webbe, is an Indian singer-songwriter and melody maker. At the age of 11 Webbe joined an English music choir where he got a massive opportunity to work with Indian jazz music legends like Laura Santana and Babush Santa. He started working for theatre groups, doing jingles, advertising and music scoring. In 2004 he left the music because he was more interested and focused on his studies.

During 2006 Webbe got over his broken love life, after having been inspired to write sad heartbreaking music which reflected his own situation. This changed his attitude making him more devoted to his music. In 2008 he sent his music to one of the most popular DJ’s in India, “DJ KARMA”, who was the only person playing Hiphop and R&B music in India at the time.

Woren Webbe debuted in the Asian Underground scene for his own new debut album, totalling over 1200000 views on MySpace and gaining over 120,000 fans on Facebook. Webbe reached #1 all over Asia in 2009.

I was introduced to Woren Webbe when I heard the track “Down In Love” featuring Karma. The song got my attention but I needed to hear more tracks before I decided to believe in Webbe’s project. Once I heard “You’re So Beautiful” featuring Efinxace, I knew that I would believe in it.

From beginning to end, this is quality R&B; some upbeat, some soothing, some thoughtful, some nostalgic, but all worth listening to. In general, I find it difficult to find a male vocalist who delivers melodically; with lyrics you can understand, and play around people of all ages, sex and creed. Webbe’s lyrics, tempo, and sound is also relevant to many, varied emotions and moods.

Out of the new breed of R&B singers like Chris Brown, Bobby V and Neyo etc., Woren Webbe needn’t feel inferior, he may only be lacking their wondrous production teams, but if he continues his constant growth in maturity and in his music style, he will certainly be able to take the torch from these guys sooner or later.

Woren Webbe delivers on all counts and could easily become one of the top, lasting performers in the R&B genre. He’s a soulful crooner and he gets you hooked in the emotions of his songs, like on “What About Us” performed together with Efinxcase. The tears just may fall on this one as you feel the boy’s pain. The song takes it back to the origins of R&B lyrically, pain and heartbreak and most of all, relativity.

Woren Webbe’s voice smooths over every track he does, proving to past fans and newcomers alike that he is here to stay. Listen to “Dreams” and “Don’t Walk Away” where he infuses pop melodies with rich, soulful productions. His vocal range and timbre, creates both strong emotion and sentiment for his songs.

Like many of his contemporaries, Woren Webbe seems to possess some love and respect for old-school R&B, and it shows through his solid song-writing skills and his soulful, melodious vocals. This is certainly among the best indie R&B I’ve heard in a while. Webbe is the real deal. He mixes a bit of the 80’s and 90’s R&B and Soul, with today’s modern urban sound, and it comes out sounding great.

Woren Webbe is a significant artist who certainly has a passion for music and best of all, anybody can enjoy his songs, regardless of genre, because they are truly beautiful, and that’s what music is: an art form able to motivate and uplift, with the beauty of its melody and rhythm. Few do it better than Woren Webbe!
