DaKing – “CryptoBoom” is a vibe from start to finish!

Lyt Lyfe Presents The Official Video for the Single “10-4” by CHANGE

The music is booming and hard-edged “10-4”until it’s suddenly dulcet and sweeping, matching the fury and then tenderness with which Change performs throughout. The shift in tone doesn’t feel jarring, but instead like it was building up to that the entire time, a testament to how dynamic and complex the production is. It creates an anthemic, banging experience that is just as important as the words rapped. Hip-hop music, with its lack of filter and abrasive nature, has always been a vehicle by which men who uphold a veneer of toughness and masculine bravado can share their feelings. Part of

Robert D. Montgomery – If you enjoy the purity of real instruments this is for you

Singer- Songwriter Robert D. Montgomery is from San Diego, CA. He has just dropped out of nowhere with 3 singles to tantalize our ears. Embodying the sensual, romantic cool at the crossroads of contemporary jazz together with old school R&B and Soul, Montgomery gets his dreamy vibe and slow groove on while showcasing some serious songwriting chops. He works his shimmering vocal magic and acoustic-guitar strumming on the lush singles “Without You,”  “All I Want Is You” and the finger snapping “Kim K” which is obviously about Kim Kardashian. When you want smooth candlelit vocals and a little inspiration, there’s not a better man than Robert D. Montgomery.  If you’ve had enough of computer generated “music” and enjoy the purity of real instruments and great vocals, this is for you.

All the tracks have an easy-grooving, mid tempo, melodic soul attitude about it. The spaces between the old and new is crossed and blended well within the songs. Here you’ll discover the sultry uniqueness of Montgomery’s laid-back guitar sounds. His honesty and unassuming passion is also evident the more you listen. He promises to be a staple in unpretentious romantic orientated music for years to come. Hear it for yourself; don’t just take my word for it.

The whole set is such a smooth ride.  It’s easy on the ears and gets you in an uplifted frame of mind. Nowadays it’s no longer a common occurrence for artists to produce quality music. Today they can guarantee themselves platinum status simply by making an erotic video and bragging about their cars and girls. Now Robert D. Montgomery steps up to the plate and resurrects the jazzy soulful sounds of the past like a seasoned veteran -without the hype, without the soft-porn videos and without the electronic wizardry.

Montgomery proves that you can entertain and sing G-rated material without putting your listeners to sleep. This brotha sings from the depths of his soul and unleashes feeling and emotion in an almost nonchalant way. With all the trash and studio-engineered artistry on the radio and in record stores today, these songs are just a few more reasons why he is going to be a singer-songwriter to be reckoned with.

Montgomery knows about romance and all the issues that come with it (pain, drama, truth, honesty, love, lies – you know all the rest). Well, at least he sings a good game about all of it. Montgomery’s almost gospel-tinged voice delivers many truths. There are no tricks here to make his voice sound like something it is not either. The vocals are raw and the lyrics are mature.

It appears Robert D. Montgomery is on a mission to do the right thing in a love relationship.  Listening to his songs, especially “All I Want Is You” it becomes clear that his woman is fortunate to have a man that dedicates such a deep soul searching celebration to her. I’m not going to say too much but if you are a guy who has been through anything involving women you will swear that Montgomery has been watching your life and writing about it. He has clearly been through many of the same thing we deal with every day in our relationships with women.

Honesty and love, both in music and in life, are two hard things to come by, even separately nowadays, but Robert D. Montgomery managed to get them joined at the hip on these tracks!
