D-Witt flexes the pen of a budding cinematic storyteller

I recently heard about an artist called D-Witt from Rockford, IL.  Illinois is the home of some prestigious sons who have left unforgettable marks on hip-hop’s history. I’m expecting an unfiltered rebel who is unafraid to bare his soul and burn down buildings. A fearless heart is a quality that makes fearless art, and I hope that’s exactly what D-Witt has arrived to present us.  So I press play on the first track called “Enemy”. The sound is open and strong-willed. There’s no doubting that D-Witt has something to say. The amount of care that goes into his lyricism stamps

Mortinus – “Star Chariot (Yellow Odyssey)” and “Oceania” – gently beatific music

As the months pass slowly into years, it becomes increasingly plain to all concerned that Danish electronic music producer, Mortinus is taking his craft very seriously. He has been extraordinarily prolific and has maintained an enviable level of quality in his releases. When approaching his two singles “Star Chariot (Yellow Odyssey)” and “Oceania” the question that arises is how will Mortinus sound fare in the altered musical terrain of 2020? Well the two new singles, are fine examples of some of the best ambient, chillout, downtempo and cinematic instrumental music being made today. Mortinus’ sound is alive and well, and his

Stiff Lauren – “Faith In Me” demands the spotlight!

Fearless and uncompromising, Stiff Lauren is back to deliver a triumphant track about having faith in yourself no matter what. Stiff Lauren is a hip-hop artist who is no stranger to speaking what’s on his mind. Since he hit the scene, he’s never been one to hold his tongue or been one to fear throwing the first punch. Whether or not you’ve followed Stiff from the beginning, one thing has been apparent through the highs and the lows: he’s talented and confident – his latest single “Faith In Me” is a perfect example of that. Stiff Lauren once again takes

Canadian born Latin pop recording artist Nancy Diaz has been navigating her way through the Canadian music scene since 2011 with her pop single “Summer Addiction” along with official music video. Her sexy and sassy fusion of English/Latin music has led to the release of many well received singles, garnering her critical acclaim and audience satisfaction.

Cyrus R.O. – “Bones” is still a skillfully crafted song

I think I expected this music to be sterile and methodical. However, to my surprise, Cyrus R.O.’s new single “Bones” from his upcoming debut album “Deconvolution” is blazingly irradiated like bundle of energy that expertly marries the organic and synthetic. Underneath it all, a darker lyrical narrative dealing with “a character struggling with their gender identity, and the fear of social turmoil that comes with that.” Everything just grooves so well together; it’s a blend of sounds that I haven’t heard done this well from any progressive, jazz, or electronic artist in quite some time. It’s a masterful melding of electronic machinery with

Temperature Falls Release The Video For Their Latest Single “1-2-3”

The sound and atmosphere of Temperature Falls is built around somewhat gritty, blended organic-electronic sounding tracks that hearken the listener back to earlier times. Their latest track, ‘1-2-3’, is a seductive track that pulls the listener in with an eerie melody, sultry vocals and an ethereal reverberating atmosphere. Mixed beautifully, this is the perfect example of what to expect from this indie trip-hop/alternative rock duo from Oslo, Norway, made up of vocalist/lyricist Camilla, and multi-instrumentalist Ian J. Ward. ‘1-2-3’ is a gorgeous, melancholic song that is heart wrenchingly beautiful. Temperature Falls is one of those bands that are absolutely necessary

This song was released last Fall on his self-titled debut EP. DAYVID explains that “Same Old Feeling” was the last song written for this EP.

The SoapGirls: “Hater” -Urgent, aggressive and hits like an arrow straight to the heart

“Hater”, seems to be the single The SoapGirls aka Mie and Mille, have been working toward for much of the latter part of their careers. Whereas their previous label felt they should explore the more “poppy dance” side of their talents, The SoapGirls finally found a producer (Charlie Hamilton) willing to follow them down the path they’ve been trying to forge, and fortunately for all involved, “Hater”, shows this path may be the one destined for The SoapGirls all along.

the-soapgirls-300Mie and Mille were street performing at the ages of 9 and 10. Something they did every day for a full 8 years, to sell their handmade soap for different charities. The French-born sisters, who reside in sunny South Africa under the comfortable protection of its Mother City, Cape Town – home to soaring Table Mountain, golden beaches and bountiful vineyards – had their first taste of studio recording at the ages of 12 and 13.

Since then this sexy but demure songwriting and singing duo have never looked back, offering strong up-tempo tracks, and the occasional slower number, all accompanied with their unique and always impressive voices and performances. They managed to sculpt a career that resulted in The SoapGirls being signed to an important music label in the South African music industry.

But it’s not just about fame and fortune for these two creatively passionate souls. As much as they desired success, they wanted it on their terms. They wanted their enrapturing talent to shine through. They needed their sound to be built around sterling melodies, exceptional power and intelligent lyricism. They had a necessity to communicate a certain vibe in their music which could not be missed, a vibe able to even overshadow the sonic excellence of the music. Quite simply, The SoapGirls needed to be Mie and Mille…and not much else!

So without much ado, and a bucket-load of courage, they parted company from the comfort of an important label, to be exactly what they’ve always wanted to be – The SoapGirls!

The SoapGirls have now begun working on a sound meant to envelope the listener’s senses. It’s more urgent, aggressive and hits like an arrow straight to the heart. It’s awe-inspiring in the sense that the music can make your heart swell, your eyes mist and your brain race with a plethora of ideas. From their past, the girls have brought along the catchiness and pop sensibilities, but there is so much more ‘meat on the bone’ of “Hater”, compared to previous releases.

As soon as I heard “Hater”, I was instantly hooked. This is a new version of  The SoapGirls, better, stronger, smarter, and dare I say, classier, than ever before.  It is an all-round powerhouse song.

No, “Hater” is not perfect. How many songs do you know that are? But it’s damn near close! So why the 5 stars? What do I love so much about this single? In a word –growth!

It’s the sheer growth. It’s seeing two young, beautiful up-and-coming performing artists step out of what’s comfortable and safe, take a few risks and an even bigger step forward. I never thought they could come so far in just a few years from the very southern tip of Africa. This single is more complex, more thoughtful, deeper, more challenging, more clever and intelligent than anything else they’ve done.

Sensual and full of swag, their blonde-on-blonde, milk, honey and lime look, reaches way over and above, the shallow skin of vanity. The girls write music, play instruments, as well as sing and dance. In short, Mie and Mille aka The SoapGirls are a talented, extroverted exercise in modern power play. The quintessential expression of femme shine!
