M.C. ZackAttack: “Rap Or Die!” – on his daily grind!

Zachery Duncan, or rather M.C. ZackAttack , has been influenced by new age lyrical poets who speak their mind through music since 2010. Soon he’ll be releasing his newest mixtape “Mind Over Madness”. M.C. ZackAttack  has recently dropped his single, “Rap Or Die!” Let me start off by saying this track isn’t for everyone, you either love it or hate it, I would say it’s a hit and miss for certain people.  We all know that the quality of hip-hop has gone downhill, with a lot of artists either going for shock value with vulgar lyrics or relying heavily on glossy production

MoEoStAr: “Algorythmic Intelligence” – You’ll find a sense of comfort in the quaintness

Norwegian Independent producer Mattias Gillis Winge Rudh better known as MoEoStAr, played the clarinet and saxophone in various bands while growing up. He started producing in the 1990s, but gave it up while pursuing an engineering degree. For a period in his life, he was simply an active music listener, until he discovered the new production software via a smartphone app. In 2016 he started the “less than a $1000 Album” project, where he aims to produce and release a full album on a $1000 budget. In the meantime MoEoStAr has dropped the single, “Algorythmic Intelligence”. Notwithstanding its modern technological

J.Dot & KD: “To Whom It May Concern” – Low on frills and rich with introspection!

I noticed that J.Dot makes his best music when he’s rapping about being a responsible man, or when he’s creating something with substance and meaning, as opposed to trying to make contemporary radio hits or battle rhymes (although he is an excellent wordsmith).  This is mostly what happens on his 4 track EP, “To Whom It May Concern”, that narrates the evolution of relationships in its various forms. To put it all in perspective, this sounds like a powerful and mature work. Something tells me J.Dot experienced things that impacted him over the past years and this album is bred

Besides uncovering the secrets of the globe Jack has a passion for music and experimenting with instruments and sounds.  “Before publishing a song, it is mine alone,” says Soundfield. “After publishing it, anyone can listen to it and decide whether to identify with it, or love it, or both.” Jack, who has been composing music since 2009, recently released his debut album, entitled “Shine”. “I have to admit,” explained Soundfield, “that my girlfriend – a solfège teacher of the

G.H. Hat: “Piano Jam 2 (Ode To Kygo)” – an authentic human expression

Modern acceptance, or lack there of, in electronic music hardly comes as a surprise. Just look back through the history of music and how the 17th century technology spread. Musicians no longer had to master a particular bow technique on the violin or cello in order to play the perfect note – They just had to press a key. Can you imagine the horror of the purists at the time? They probably all thought that the piano was destroying the soul of the music. What it did though was simplify things. It reduced what was really essential and human. People

HR Live At CBGB’s 1984 – an essential part of alternative music and punk culture

HR is most well known as the lead singer of revolutionary reggae punk rock band Bad Brains. In their day Bad Brains could have been easily mentioned in the same breath as The Ramones, The Sex Pistols or The Clash, such was their greatness. Yet the band has evolved many times in its long history, playing across many genres of music including jazz, hardcore punk, alternative rock and reggae. HR has been making music since 1976 with Bad Brains, and along the way until today, he has been acclaimed for his reckless punk screaming just as much as he has

Callum Crighton: “The Rose” – a strong ear-catching melody

Even while everything I know about my musical taste should violently reject the cheese-camp synth pop and adorable mainstream swoon songs of the 80’s, I’ve enjoyed that music ever since I was first tricked into listening to the smooth, velvety crooning of the Brit pop chart invasion during that period. I can’t really explain why I loved that music so much, I guess for the same reason people eat cheesecake: It’s loaded with sugar, almost unbearably sweet, and probably isn’t the healthiest for you, but goddamn if it doesn’t make you feel so good inside when you eat it up.

Virgil Blue: “Pain Of Loss” – gorgeous washes of sound

Virgil Blue has released his debut EP entitled “Pain Of Loss”. Inspired and influenced by Prince and Sade, Virgil, a multi-instrumentalist who started out making music at the age of six, when he picked up the saxophone, produced much of the music that can be heard on this EP. Virgil who recently moved from the suburbs of Detroit to LA has put together 6 smooth trance-like tracks that that flaunts ambient, RnB and trip-hop flavors. If you’re looking for something atmospheric and hypnotizing, then this recording may be of serious interest to you. Fragile, tender and soulful, Virgil Blue’s voice will

Sarantos: “I Love To Love You Too” a Spectacular Representation of Versatility

Sarantos is finally releasing his highly anticipated first solo music album on November 18th 2014. Sarantos who has been featured in our magazine network on numerous occasion, has a unique sound has been best described by industry insiders as “an emotionally powerful vocal style masterfully united with music that is a fusion of classic 80s rock blended with modern soft rock and pop music!”

Sarantos currently has over 1M twitter followers, 310K Facebook likes and is rated #1 on Reverbnation in the world in the pop genre. Sarantos will be releasing a new song on the 1st Tuesday of every month, a new music video on the 2nd Tuesday of every month, a new Funny video of the month on the 3rd Tuesday of every month and a new Whiteboard video on the 4th Tuesday of every month!

Sarantos, who has written over 2000 songs in his career thus far, has undergone several personal challenges with his father passing away two years ago after a long hard-fought battle with lung cancer, dealing with personal health issues like asthma and allergies which affected his singing style and just going through life’s ups and downs. That’s why Sarantos’ main motivation to make music is to raise money to help health organizations. In fact 33% of any music related sales are going straight to charity!

The 11 charities chosen for each song include American Cancer Society, American Lung Association, Make-a-Wish Foundation, American Heart Association, St Jude’s, Hellenic Academy, ASERF, American Red Cross, Children’s Hospital of Chicago, Chicago Medical School, Thanioton Society & the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Sarantos’ fourth monthly-installment music release is, “I Love To Love You Too”. Breaking away from his recent Adult-Contemporary and Pop-Rock styles, this time Sarantos unleashes his Dance grooves which sit somewhere between the dazzling disco rhythms of the 70’s and the funky vocoding sound of modern-day Daft Punk. All wrapped around a tender love song!

Make no mistake though, Sarantos is no fad caught in a time warp. He is the current real thing, giving his own unique and sophisticated spin on these styles. On this song Sarantos has a sound that doesn’t have much to do with the sound of his earlier recordings, and certainly not the previous two; which is what makes him even more interesting as a recording artist.

“I Love To Love You Too” is a spectacular representation of the versatility of Sarantos’ capabilities, ranging from this newly expressed dance tone to his classic pop-rock style, while adding some other vibes in-between, along the way.

When a song takes a complicated issue and puts it in simple terms, it is easy to miss the obvious and take it for granted. Though sarcastic and playful in nature, “I Love To Love You Too” takes on a challenging subject matter – our primal emotions. The fears, anxieties and crushed hopes and dreams that we learn to live because of being shy and timid. Try dancing to it, and see how much it hurts to go into that space if you’re a shy guy. It will remind you of things that went wrong and fell apart. But  the song is a positive one and Sarantos shows that you’re able to come out with confidence by showing your love. You know you are healed when you can pull out afterwards and smile when the song is over. You know you are heading to a better place when you can finally laugh it all away.

“I Love To Love You Too” will take you back to the first times you fell in love. Remember it, so you can move on, to your better self and have the courage to face your feelings and fears. For “I Love To Love You Too”, Sarantos has chosen the American Heart Association to benefit from the 33% of any related sales profits. Lend a hand!
