Heistheartist – “Boom” (Love Version) – transposes crystal-clear artistry through spiritual glistening

Heistheartist is an American Christian singer-songwriter from Central Islip, NY. Formerly a secular neo-soul singer signed to Bentley Records under his biological name LeeMann Bassey, Heistheartist discovered that his true calling was with the Lord, after hearing an inspiring sermon by TD Jakes online one day. That day he was inspired to teach the world about the Lord like TD Jakes did with his Sermon, but through music. The song “Boom” – a song that mixes sensuality with religion – is actually based on a dream that Heistheartist had one night, in which he had relations with an angel. “Boom”

Bobby Royale – “Live Jazz at Staarsound” – There is an artistic quality in the music that cannot be overlooked

Some see hip-hop and jazz as an unholy alliance, maybe even the vulgarization of jazz. But other musicians see the genre-melding as a positive development. Every so often, in some corner of the globe in fact, you’ll find a handful of jazz musicians experimenting with jazz and hip-hop hybrids. In some ways the musical connection would seem inevitable. After all, early gospel, blues and jazz employed call-and-response cadences dealing with the same themes prevalent in hip-hop today. For some, though, the similarities end there. Straight ahead jazz musicians who have had their music sampled appreciate their work being exposed to

J.Drive – “Untitled” showers the auditory canvas with musical ideas

Hailing from the inner city of Youngstown, Ohio’s Southside, Jessie “J.Drive” grew up in a small apartment in a violent neighborhood without his natural mother or father.  At a very young age he realized that his natural affinity for basketball and Hip-hop music would become the tools necessary to pave his way to a more comfortable lifestyle.  Despite the tragic events that ended his hoop dreams, Jessie’s understanding of what it takes to make the best of his gifts regardless of circumstances is what has brought him thus far. Currently he is pushing his latest single called “Untitled”. In his

“Millions” shows off how talented and self-assured DboySlim is!

“Millions”, the track by DboySlim, has an incendiary takeoff, wasting zero time to underscore the necessary sense of urgency through a compacted sonic boom and a room full of booty. The backdrop is made of a dynamic piano loop, skittering hi-hats, and twisting synths, while the rapper updates his dance-swaying lyricism. DboySlim is impressive to say the least, while the track absolutely bumps. He creates an intense atmosphere that makes you want to jump around and groove. “Millions” shows off how talented and self-assured DboySlim is, and how he can probably live up to any hype you want to put

Andree Cassielll – “Alimento” – a universality that makes him a perfect fit for the modern era!

The Mexico City native, Andree Cassielll, possesses a down-to-earth humility in his vocal tone that makes his storytelling raps feel like they’re always coming from a place of truth over fiction. Considering the producer and artist, predominantly sings and raps in Spanish, which I cannot understand, that’s an impressive feat. The trap-inspired beats flicker in and out as Andree becomes more invested in his storytelling, and it truly feels like you’re on the phone with a rambling friend. He’s a poet, capable of transporting you somewhere otherworldly with his sound. His music has a genuine fluidity, and if he continues

EH – “Mirrors” lets it fly with the fret-board work to thoroughly rock you!

Baltimore rock guitar ace EH reaffirms his top-of-the-heap status on his new 7 track album “Mirrors”. It’s a superlative set of new music full of tightly-written, engaging instrumentals that don’t need a singer up front to rock hard and hold your attention. This type of writing is EH’s trademark, and is one of the main reasons he will develop a audience. While many other technically-proficient rock guitarists mainly play for other guitar players, EH seems to play for the people. He relies less on continuous shredding and more, on dynamically impacting riffs. EH gets us going with his opening track, “Pounding

Boonie Mayfield – “While Black (Red Light, Blue Light, E’s and R’s)” – sentiments nurtured by a history of prejudice

Solomon Vaughn aka Boonie Mayfield has always traded dazzlingly intricate verses, intellectual thoughts and propulsive rhymes, over inventive, nonlinear productions, and his latest release “While Black (Red Light, Blue Light, E’s and R’s)” re-proposes that peerless aesthetic, while adding an ulterior dose of consciousness, and reinforcing his hard-won authenticity. “This song is a 2-part storyteller based on some of my personal experiences with racism; from getting racially profiled by police, dealing with stereotypes while dating and the ugly side of interacting on social media,” explained Boonie. “I was inspired to display some of the scenarios I’ve gone through on a

Sassy Vee – “In My Dreams” has a fantastic chill dance rhythm running its course

Longing, hope, and a need to believe in reality, pour out of “In My Dreams”, the new singer by singer-songwriter Sassy Vee. It’s a clear, accomplished cry from the heart, exorcising its illusions by declaring them bluntly. “In my dreams we’re together. Holding hands and making plans forever. I wish it were true, but I cannot be with you. You have another.” The song introduces Sassy’s strengths: a voice with sultry intensity, songwriting that goes directly to the point and a production that is well aware of both EDM and Pop. The song’s arrangement is lucid and uncluttered, placing all

Dawn Of Eternity: “Guilty Deluxe” – A unique, inspiring and fresh approach to a relatively stale metal scene

NRT-Records Release Another Great Metal Album By Dawn Of Eternity

Founded by the talented singer Sara Seubert and guitar player Johannes Kittel, from the ashes of their former project, “Buried Alive”, Dawn Of Eternity became known in the metal scene. After the release of their EP, “Catastrome”, the band played all over Germany together with acts like Peragon, Gates of Dawn, Amorticure, Saint Astray and Eden’s Decay.

At the end of their odyssey, they continued their work on the debut album, “Guilty”, which was recorded in collaboration with room4Records. Being “almost done” by the end of 2013, the perfectionist, Sara Seubert, took nearly 3 more months to perfect her vocals on the album, before it was finally released in March 2014.

Right after the release, Dawn Of Eternity continued touring, with a lots of concerts in front of euphoric crowds. In October 2014 they supported the Dutch speed metal band “Lord Volutre” in the Czech Republic. Finally in October this year, Dawn of Eternity signed with the independent label NRT-Records who have re-released a deluxe version of their album “Guilty”, together with a new music video.

Dawn Of Eternity is a unique, inspiring and fresh approach to a relatively stale metal scene. The dual vocalists used in some tracks, is one of the few times I have liked this situation. The male-female, sing-growl dynamics, which can be perfectly appreciated on the track “Blind My Eyes”, create a hauntingly beautiful sound that boggles the mind – somewhere between the Devil and an Angel. Never did I ever think that a band could sound like a mix of Tori Amos meets Meshuggah, but Dawn Of Eternity accomplishes the feat.

If you like your music to be heavy and atmospheric, I can almost guarantee that “Guilty Deluxe” will not disappoint you. For those yet unfamiliar with Dawn Of Eternity -they play a style of music that sort of melds melodic death metal, hard rock and touches of Goth. One of their main strengths is Sara Seubert’s voice, which is strong, clear, high but not too high, and emotive. She could mesmerize you even if she is singing the shopping list.

“Guilty Deluxe” is one of those albums that just leave your jaw dropped in awe. Popular rock music has been so insubstantial and rehashed for the last few years that a recording of this caliber is bound to create a stir. There is not one single bad song here: they are catchy without taking that fateful plunge over the “commercial” cliff. Production is spectacular all the way through. High points are difficult to pick out because the whole album is so well-done, though “Ego”, “Cut Me Loose”, “Sing For Me”, “Guilty”, “Oceans” and “Fire” are my current favorites.

“Guilty Deluxe” also counts 4 tracks from the band’s self-released Ep, “Castastrome” among its 16 tracks. The album expands on the band’s ability to craft beautiful music while at the same time maintaining teamwork and dedication to their loyal fan base. Along with beautiful music that is layered, moving and quite powerful, the emotion released in just one song – the simple acoustically driven “Fire” – gives me goose-bumps every time!

Dawn Of Eternity is a band that deserves much more recognition than they receive. “Guilty Deluxe” is by far their best work and their love for the project shines through on almost every track. Musically the album is rife with richly textured melodies and effective overdriven guitar-based arrangements supplied by Sebastian Klüfer –Bass, Torsten Ossowicki –Drums, Sara Seubert –Lead Vocals and Johannes Kittel – Guitars & Backing Vocals.

Every song on the album is worth listening to, and the more you listen, the deeper you feel the music. It is quite a testament to the creativity and synergy of a band when you can listen to a song and always get something different from it. What more can I say about Dawn Of Eternity and, in particular, “Guilty Deluxe”?

Well, it’s powerful, it’s melodic, it’s heavy, it’s layered and it’s overall amazing. I’m so glad to have it in my collection!
