Tisabel: “GENRE HOPPING” bristles with energy and artistic audacity

Longtime Musical director and vocalist Tony Isabel aka Tisabel boasts an unprecedented skill set. He writes, arranges, sings, plays, and performs. He busts taboos, flashes unstoppable ambition, blends genres together like paint. Soulful ballads and funky grooves, ambient new age soundscapes, Hip-hop fantasy, and divine EDM devotion. For these qualities alone, he deserves respect. However, as you know, respect is also kind of a bullshit concept. Your favorite songs may not grace anyone else’s mixes; your favorite artists may not have ever left town. A century of recorded music has given us a galaxy of worthy tunes. But the gravitational

Lee Lee Lanea: “Basswhipped” resonates gloriously

Beats aren’t gendered. So why are we still in the dark ages when it comes to gender equality in the music studio? Women represent less than 5% of music producers and engineers. Yes, the music industry—like every industry on this patriarchal planet—is sexist. That is not news. But this means we’re missing out on a whole world of sounds, stories, and perspectives. Our culture has systematically ingrained this idea that technology is more of a man’s thing. Then of course there’s the fact that most men get freaked out when women do things better than them or even as good

Mobb Boss: “Lil Lady” – the depth, perspective and hunger of a performer

Being respected, revered and admired as an emcee is what often elevates a rapper from being one who merely strings together words that rhyme into an appreciated lyricist of the highest order. However, while there are a long string of spitters and scribes that have come along, the elite few who have found themselves mentioned in conversations and debates when discussing quality artists, have one thing in common: a track record of consistently delivering music that make the most of their lyrical abilities and serve as a piece of themselves. When speaking of today’s pack of underground orators, Mobb Boss

King Draper: “1992” – simplistic in its premise but unquestionably real in its execution

You can’t write about underground or independent hip-hop and not write about King Draper. Or at least I seemingly can’t. For the past couple years the man’s been a nearly constant presence in my journalistic exploits. And now, I’m sitting down again to review his latest 11 track project, “1992”.  The King hits me with dope music and I write about it, and I’m more than happy with the arrangement. If you’ve peeped any of King Draper’s projects before, what you get from this project won’t surprise you. Draper with his soulful, jazzy, production and his smart anecdotes detailing tales

Edgler Vess: “Violet” – essential to your hip-hop collection

Every album that Edgler Vess releases, breathes with a distinct personality, each a shape-shifting assemblage of personage and programming that sounds more like a kind of miraculous hyperlinked sound collage than rap. His lyrical feats go unmatched for sheer idiosyncrasy and insight; beyond rap enthusiasts, many of his strongest supporters are probably writers and music heads. A master of the microphone and the beats, Vess has constantly swapped out his tools and themes, avoiding revision and instead choosing innovation. When Edgler Vess does what he does, he’s impossible to ignore. He’s profound, he’s impressive, and he’s damn entertaining. In short,

Forget your radio-cheese pop or your repetitive club-dance music. This is the future right here. “I Need Rehab” heralds a new benchmark for quality and sophistication in commercially-viable electronic music. Shane Arix delivers a sequential progression of composition, artistic identity and production technique. For an artist on his debut, this is a phenomenal way to kick things off!

Technically, the production is flawless. The mixing is outstanding, and I am referring here to the multi-track mix to stereo. The quality of this mix rivals the best professionally produced EDM recordings. Each sound occupies its own space and is distinctly definable. The sense of depth and dynamics is also very well-defined. The sound layering is solidly maintained as overlapping sounds never compete with each other. The mix is comprised of a multitude of layers and elements resulting in a full and complex sonic environment that stays clean as a whistle!

Shane Arix’s musical logic and his composing theory, is also undeniable as he maintains a pop core with melodic refrains while expanding his electronic arrangement. This satisfies the listener’s appetite for easy-listening entertainment while never losing its cutting edge dance-floor flair.

It’s rare that a debut EDM single comes along that demands multiple listens. There is so much else clamoring for your attention, it seems nearly impossible to avoid distraction. Yet here Shane Arix has crafted something that cannot be denied, something that commands attention and promises to fully deliver total listening pleasure. With the release of “I Need Rehab” , Shane Arix has proven to be an oasis in a desert of EDM unoriginality!
