Check out “No Sometimes Yes,” a brand new EP by Luca Draccar

An exciting combination of great melodies and good production aesthetics. Producer and artist Luca Draccar has recently announced the release of a brand new EP titled “No Sometimes Yes.” He really outdid himself with this one, because this EP is yet another important milestone for the artist, who managed to channel his skills and creativity in a very distinctive way. The EP combines memorable hooks with lush soundscapes, going for a distinctive aesthetic, which sets the bar higher. What makes “No Sometimes Yes” noteworthy is the fact that this amazing production is layered to perfection. The audience is most certainly

Mind Over Matter – “Human” is near perfect in execution and direction

Three years ago, and after 100 concerts and international attention, Peter Scherfig (guitarist) and Armin Kavousi (lead singer) parted ways with the project SuitsBLVD to create what now is Mind Over Matter. Three years in the studio, collaborating with new producers and talented musicians – both in Denmark and in England – has resulted in their cinematic nu-rock / metal album entitled “Human”.  The band is planning a sonic revolution: “The purpose of the music is to spread a message of collective consciousness and ‘Mind over Matter’ to the next generation. The message is to deal with old norms and

D Williams – “California” – precision-driven songwriting, and a sort of deceptive minimalism!

LD Williams is one of those authentic modern day troubadours. The London based artist writes all his own Indie Pop & Soul songs, and records them at home on an iPhone. Influenced by music from the 60’s through to the 90’s with a Britpop flavor, the singer-songwriter is fresh on the block and building his catalog.  Williams’ music doesn’t possess the immediacy that one would expect from the usual pop fodder. Take his double-sided single “California”, which consists of the songs, “California” & “I’ll Promise You This”. The bedroom production is understated; the core guitar riffs, a fluttery, jangly thing;

Lady Bain relies on solid song-craft and musical arranging that allows her voice room to breathe

Let’s start by saying that Lady Bain is a true songstress with deep expression and a vocal range that is out of this world. She is unlikely ever to be pigeonholed with the seemingly never-ending mother-lode of cloned pop R&B singers, but has instead carved a veritable niche in slick, adult, soul grooves. Adult, not in the sense of being rude about sex, but adult in the sense of sounding worldly wise and experienced about relationships, hardships and love. Lady Bain relies on solid song-craft and musical arranging that allows her voice, never overstated, room to breathe. Her confidence is

Emerald Suspension is set to release the EP “Eruptions” on the 4th of March 2020

The band Emerald Suspension recently debated about the best guitar solo in the world. That discussion ignited a plan to create a single to be titled ‘Eruption’. Inspired by the Eddie Van Halen guitar solo of the same name, there is no mistaking the two. In the meantime, other tracks came together, with and without guitars. So now the release is ‘Eruptions’, an EP with six nifty tracks. ‘Eruptions’ features an unconventional mix of guitar, percussion, vocals, samples, noise, effects, and DIY instruments. The unique works range from noise to alt-rock to an orchestral ballad (of sorts). ‘Eruptions’ with different

Star Trek Picard Martial Arts Dance Video Starring Ben Ryan Metzger

Believeland musical artist Ben Ryan Metzger has released his new martial arts dance music video for Star Trek Picard. Ben wrote, composed, and performed all the vocals on this incredibly inspirational pop rock opera track inspired by the legendary Sir Patrick Stewart, master engineered by 13 time Grammy Winner Mike Makowski, and produced by Space Jam Slam phenom Chris Adams. With deeply powerful vocals and soaring high falsettos Ben showcases his amazing voice reminiscent of Elvis Presley and Andrea Bocelli engaging into maximum warp with an Axel Rose flare. Often compared to Michael Jackson and Bruce Lee, Ben strives to

Love Ghost – “Dead Brother”- a fresh new synthesis!

L.A. based rock band Love Ghost, are back with a brand new single entitled “Dead Brother” (release date January 24th). The accompanying music video (which was shot by Rob Zombie’s camera operator Hassan Abdul-Wahid, and directed by acclaimed horror actor Jeff Daniel Phillips) has already won Best Music Video awards at 3 international film festivals. Dark. Theatrical. Ambitious. These are the words that immediately come to mind when describing Love Ghost’s newest release, and they’re the words that make it so unique in their discography. “Dead Brother” takes the quintet’s tried-and-true sound and offers a more complex and DARKER take

Ambition: VERSES/VERSUS Embodies Many Layers and Genres To Appeal To A Wide Audience

Born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA, the all-around-entertainer Ambition has already performed at shows alongside Rick Ross, Trey Songz, Kerri Hilson and Eric Bene’t. Not to mention, his brief stint in R&B Group Pretty Ricky as 4Play, professional B-Boy dancing in Get Down Gang, Choreographing and Artist Development for  Blue-Star Artist Crave and appearances in various media outlets including Black Beat Magazine, Right On Magazine, Vibe Magazine, World Up Magazine, the BET Awards and 106 N Park.

Ambition has already been attributed to people moving their feet with the Top 40 Dance Song, “Diary,” by 11thRecords Recording Artist Tino Coury. Ambition wrote the song, produced by Coury, with Alex Cantrall (Fantasia, Dru Hill, JoJo). Now Ambition releases his highly anticipated mix-tape VERSES/VERSUS.

I think Ambition is extremely talented but he hasn’t showcased an album that frames his talent so perfectly until VERSES/VERSUS. His previous efforts all have good songs but this entire mixtape hits and keeps hitting from track 1 through to track 23.  There is a great mix of songs on here. There are club bangers, there are slow jams, and there are hip-hop songs.

Ambition really embodies many layers and genres to appeal to a wide audience. He has major pop, R&B, and even rap tracks here, that are single potentials. This is honestly a great listen.

Ambition has a nice, smooth, but energetic, R&B voice that can easily ride over upbeat and ballad tracks. Straight off the blocks with tracks like “I Want It All”, “11 To 7,” and “Perform 4 Me,” he will be able to prove to the world that he’s more than just a trendy singer and that he has a voice. Ambition has beautiful harmonies, infectious and clever melodies as he showcases his silky tone and soothing harmonies VERSES/VERSUS.

What I really love about this album is that it is contemporary but not cliché and generic. Ambition is a smart man, especially at his craft. He knows how to put his own twist on Dance-Pop and Hip-Hop singles so they can relate to what this generation’s music listeners are into, but still differ. I also love the fact that there’s such a variety on this mixtape; the fact that he wanted to incorporate more than just the straight R&B/Hip-Hop that many expect from him.

I have a strong feeling that he will continue to grow as a music artist and become a force to be reckoned with. Ambition’s fans can see the progress and maturity and the level of music with this mixtape. VERSES/VERSUS contains a bucketful of his signature heartfelt songs that girls will fall in love with and that guys can play for their women. He has delivered a mixtape that caters to his fans and Pop/R&B followers, one that builds upon his sonic repertoire and signals the emergence of an artist whose work will endure. VERSES/VERSUS really shows that Ambition is better than ever.

My favourite tracks include “Strange Clouds”, “They Don’t Understand”, “Take Ya Clothes Off”, “I Get It In”, “Hotel”, “My#1” and “Ecstasy”, but with 23 tracks the list is almost endless.

This album reflects his hard work and if Ambition chooses to expand his music from this level, even better things are likely to come!
