Liam Merrigan: “Broke Beyond Tomorrow” – a high sense of life and perception

Liam Merrigan is 29 year old singer-songwriter from Kintbury Berkshire UK. The 10 track album of original songs, “Broke Beyond Tomorrow” deals with Liam life experiences – either lived first hand or witnessed. I enjoyed the intimate nature of the recording, which sounds as if Merrigan was playing a beat old guitar on a stool 10 feet in front of you. Totally stripped down, this album demonstrates the great craft of the songs, as well as Liam’s expressive voice, and of course his acoustic guitar. Liam is the English equivalent of rejuvenated Neil Young in his observational skills.

Etop: “Masterworks” is ground-breaking and innovative

Etop is not your typical electronic artist. If someone says to you that Etop plays electronic music do not go thinking that he plays heavy beats and dance songs. Well he does, but not quite the way you’re thinking. Etop is everywhere. He can go to a bubblegum electronic pop tune, to a groovy dance song, all the way over to a depressing ballad. And then he can do something better than just about anyone else…go back in time. No, this is not another installment of Return To The Future. He really goes back to the past, and out of

Moorhouse: “I Love You to the Moon and Back” ft. The Cellophane Heart – brings a new slant to the genre

Irish DJ and producer Moorhouse has dedicated the song, “I Love You to the Moon and Back”, to his daughter, Abbie. It speaks about their relationship and what the future holds. Canadian artist, The Cellophane Heart, provided the vocals for the track, and the song was produced in Moorhouse’s home studio in Waterford, Ireland. The track offers a lively, upbeat 90s dance pop sound mixed with current top 40 influences from Baz Luhrmann and N-Trance. This track means a lot. And there is a reason for that. Sure, it may be electronic dance music, but it’s…different. EDM music is becoming

KonQuestNow: “NOP (No One’s Perfect)” ft. STP & J.Morgan – an assemblage of uncanny language

The preconceived notions of what a KonQuestNow (VerseBorn & Wreck The Rebel) track is going to be like are plentiful well before you even press play. This has been a boon to their career, in what has become a viral habit of either hating or loving something based almost solely on your own personal internet culture and what your daily feed prompts you to feel about a certain subject. The collective’s name has become synonymous with great lyrics, superb beats, and originality. On their latest track “NOP (No One’s Perfect)”,  produced by Wreck The Rebel, featuring  STP & J.Morgan,  KonQuestNow

Amadou Ly: “Right Now (feat. Favor Valentine)” – the music rings with self-awareness and truthfulness

From ‘Twilight: Breaking Dawn’ Vampire to Hiphop Emcee.

Never heard of Amadou Ly? Okay I’ll rephrase the question. Have you seen the blockbuster movie ‘Twilight: Breaking Dawn’?  I know, who hasn’t! Well, then you already know Amadou Ly. He plays the Vampire ‘Henri’, who forms part of the duo that makes up the French Coven in the Vampire series.

Amadou Ly

Amadou Ly who was born in Senegal, apparently attended University to study engineering, but being a shy person a friend suggested he could overcome his shyness by taking acting classes. Amadou took his friend’s advice and changed his degree to acting. The rest is history, as they say! But prior to that though, Amadou had to fight a long immigration battle in the USA, after his mother abandoned at the age of 14.

Not having completely quenched his creative thirst as an actor, on his way up, Amadou Ly, expands his artistic horizons and rolls out his emcee swagger on the debut single “Right Now (feat. Favor Valentine)”, from his upcoming Ep. As soon as the track begins it starts off with a catchy hook and a nice beat and remains that way the entire time. This is a go party and have fun record. Women, money and hustling, it’s all there – the track is banging, just as I expected.

This single could easily be a club track, or a in a movie soundtrack, or on some inspirational stuff. And that’s just the sound. Add the lyrics and flows on top of that and this is truly an instant classic. I’ve listened through its entirety at least a dozen times in a row and I just can’t get enough.

On his debut, Amadou Ly has delivered a catchy, easy to get, mainstream hiphop track. After listening to it you’ll appreciate how succinctly this track’s title summarizes its theme. Amadou’s performance is exciting, unpredictable and effervescent. All the twists and turns featured on “Right Now” feel expertly crafted – and for a debut that’s no mean feat.

Amadou Ly and Taylor Lautner

Simply put, this is a sultry sonic assault on your ears. It’s really a feel good track and Amadou Ly does a great job of capturing the soul and every topical moment in the song, by making you feel the emotion behind everything he’s saying.

Listening to “Right Now (feat. Favor Valentine)” you get the perception that Amadou Ly is an unapologetically honest artist who knows what he is and what he’s doing, and as such, his music rings with self-awareness and truthfulness.

It remains to be seen whether or not Amadou Ly can top himself with his upcoming EP going forward, but based on what he has done here, he seems perfectly capable of pulling it off…as he has always done in all the adventures and hardships he has had to face until now!
