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

Kambiz Mirzaei – “The Lost Ambient” – a dominating melodic mellowness behind a rising wave of dynamic, ascending energy.

The Toronto based composer, Kambiz Mirzaei, has navigated between two musical cultures: from authentic transcendental Middle Eastern melodies to North American flavored ambient, electronic and orchestral arrangements. His collaboration with Jamshid Andalibi in 1999 initiated an alternative approach to traditional use of the folk instrument, Ney, in modern compositions. If you’re looking for an instrumental record that explores cross-culture electronic and ambient themes cohesively, look no further than the album – “The Lost Ambient” by Kambiz Mirzaei. I am astounded that Mirzaei isn’t talked about more often, because there is so much innovation in his compositions and production that it’s

Country Traditionalist JAMES CAROTHERS’ Latest CD, HONKY TONK LAND, Available Now

New Single, 

“I Must Be Alive,” Lands At Radio Today

“This boy is a stone-country singer.” – Robert K. Oermann, MusicRow

“He has a baritone to die for, and a voice perfectly suited to singing Country.” – Duncan Warwick, Country Music People

Nashville, TN — With a gutbucket baritone that brings to mind Waylon Jennings and Jamey Johnson, James Carothers delivers stirring and hard-hitting songs of real life on his latest release, HONKY TONK LAND (Renegade Mountain Records).  A tour-de-force of traditionalism, the eight-track offering features seven Carothers’ originals, and takes the listener back to a time when songs of life’s triumphs and struggles filled the Country airwaves. The disc, produced by Carothers, is available for purchase now at iTunes, Amazon, Amazon UK and GooglePlay.

The newcomer’s latest single, “I Must Be Alive,” lands at Country radio today via PlayMPE and programmers can also find it at AirPlay Direct.  With honest simplicity, the vocals evoke the emotional gravitas of Haggard, and Carothers’ words carve deep into the soul:

In the bitter cold of winter

The air burns my lungs outside

In the dead heat of summer

The sun brings the sweat and strife

It don’t take a minute

To know that I’m alive

“I Must Be Alive” is just one of the compelling tracks on HONKY TONK LAND.  Standouts include the opener, “New Country Singers,” a soft smack-down on the “lightweight Pop/Country tailgater” type of vocalist so predominant on today’s airwaves.  James sums up his feelings for their “Bro-country utopia” succinctly, singing “They don’t drink near as much as me.”

His smoky morning-after vocals make “Mississippi Clay” as mysterious and riveting as Bobbie Gentry did in ’67 with “Ode To Billie Joe.”  The title track revs things up with a tale of bad women and late nights on the road, and the teasing fiddle and hot guitar make the cut a chase for that neon rainbow.  “Trouble In Paradise,” written by James’ father, is a Country man’s take on a dying marriage and the timeless battle between good and evil.
