Kaytlyn Cate – The New Single – “Making My Heart Feel Like”

Singer/songwriter Kaytlyn Cate hails from the picturesque Cascade Mountain range of the Pacific Northwest. Upon the release of her first single, Pitchfork called Kaytlyn “the alt-rock genre’s best kept secret”. Writing about the deepest emotional issues that belie youth and innocence, Kaytlyn’s lyrical work addresses the themes of love, hope, fear, hurt, heartache, and haunting insecurity. In addition to writing songs for other artists, Kaytlyn has been hard at work on her forthcoming EP, ‘The Blue Hour’, with producer David Samuel. Kaytlyn has been reinventing herself as an artist since her first debut. She felt Darkside was not representing who she

Ronnie Walka is a perfectionist when it comes to his craft

Like a cool breeze on a humid day Ronnie Walka comes in like a breath of fresh air with his new offering. Coming off of the visuals for “TIFTL”, his soulful tribute to womanhood, “You and I” is a passionate plea from a man nearing the end of a relationship that he’s battling to save. In the process of the breakup he begins to reminisce about better times yearning to turn the clock back. A real make up to break song that will have you feeling every single word. Ronnie is a perfectionist when it comes to his craft, with

Mike LePond’s Silent Assassins: “Pawn and Prophecy” – Dense, dynamic and super tight

There is no doubt that “Pawn and Prophecy” is going to garner some serious praise. This album puts the ‘classic’ back in metal in a definitive kind of fashion. The album represents the direction many true metal fans hoped and presumed the genre would go after all the ridiculous sub-genres that crawled out of the woodwork over the past few years. This album basically sows the seeds for a whole new generation of power metal – one with technique, speed and aggression that has no regard for radio-friendly or corporate rock elements. There is no denying the awe-inspiring quality and

Newborn: “Shadow Of Your Heart” – atmospheric, beefy, and more than a little radio friendly!

The single, “Shadow Of Your Heart” is a successful demonstration of the progression of Newborn as a band. With emblematic lyrically content, well-crafted vocals, and brilliant instrumentation, this is the gem of the band’s catalog thus far. Cathartically channeling their 90’s grunge predecessors, the beautiful bone-chilling arrangement takes in various genre influences to deliver something intrinsically their own. The band’s credentials as musicians have never been in question since their debut release, but even so, the seamless nature with which they gel is impressive. And while the driving rhythm section and guitars never fail to keep things interesting, it’s vocally

Natalie Jean: “All I Want” offers up a perspective of love, fidelity and relationships

Authenticity is one of those indefinable traits that many artists search and pursue, but never quite find. You can’t build authenticity into a song through a particular gathering of words and phrases; you can’t swagger, pine or shout your way there. It just happens when you put yourself out there, daring people to listen, asking the audience to believe whatever your stories are trying to communicate. It’s an achievement that award winning, multi-nominated singer-songwriter, and Grammy voting member, Natalie Jean manages by never over singing, by using lyrical poetry that sounds like it exists now, as well as in a

Disembodied Existence: “Chapter 1: The Terrestrial Script” – jaw-dropping virtuosity

Disembodied Existence is a Progressive/Technical modern metal band composed of members from around Metro Manila, Philippines. Splendid seems a strange term for a metal-type band, yet it applies to these guys. Relevant expectations include harsh and melodic vocals, amazing musicianship, and tons of atmosphere. This review cannot do justice to the varied combinations of heavy and delicate, powerful and subtle, and always rumbling with energy. If you’ve slowly matured from your head-banging self, into someone who prefers something of much more quality and substance, then with this band you’ve got it. The first time I listened to their single “Chapter

“TOXSICK – Various Artists”  – a 3 label compilation by OMOIDE LABEL / FORCE RECORDS / MYORPH /

When you look at techno, the genre itself has a wide specter of sub genres, and that’s why you always need to dig a little bit deeper to find the true gems. Diving head first into the world of techno music can be daunting. Not only is there a rich history of distinct styles and scenes to learn, but there’s also an ever-increasing pile of must-hear new labels and artists to discover. Labels are one of the best ways to find great techno. Labels in these genres also define the genres, and define entire sounds and the artists that go

The world’s first 360° music clip in 4K launched with Noa Neal and her song “Graffiti”

Noa Opdebeeck was born in Antwerp, Belgium. She released her first English-language album, “NoaNeal – Naked on the inside” during 2003. In early 2008 she toured the United States, Mexico and Thailand with hundreds of musicians from 28 nationalities in the ‘Up with People’ tour. In 2009 she reached the finals of the K2 K3 talent show. In 2010 she was picked up by Live Entertainment and from 2012 she became one of the leading ladies for the VTM music channel. In 2013 she moved to the United States with her producer Ellie Wyatt to write songs and record them with well-known producer Mighty Mike.

In fact, “Graffiti”, her latest single was recorded in LA with Mighty Mike (Katy Perry, Carly Rae Jepsen). I was blown away at the sophistication Noa shows in this song and how she is displaying even further growth in her artistry and personal self-coming through the song and its supporting video. The melody and uplifting energy of “Graffiti” just pulls deep inside you and you really “feel” the song instead of just listening. On watching the video the experience is even more overpowering.

I love the song and was looking for a unique way to capture its spirit in the music clip.” said Noa Neal who co-wrote “Graffiti” with an international dream team: Ellie Wyatt (VK), Phillipa Alexander (VK) and Mighty Mike (VS).

In the meantime Noa Neal had been chosen by Intel for a unique project; the world’s first 360° music clip. Only a few days after Mark Zuckerberg announced his plans to treat your Facebook News Feed to an “immersive, 360-degree video experience”, the world’s first 360° music clip in 4K had been launched with Noa Neal and her song “Graffiti” as absolute protagonists, along with the 360 degree viewing experience of course! The resulting production is BIG and envelopes the viewer with a modern-day visual version of what the Phil Spector wall of sound used in the 60’s, was to audio – a true game-changer!

Although only 6 cameras were used – Facebook needs 24 – the viewing experience is truly immersive: with complete control over the camera, each viewing is completely different. Noa Neal’s “Graffiti” was produced in close collaboration with technology giant Intel.

For experienced producer Frank Molnar, this gigantic project was a fantastic challenge : “We had about 100 people cast and crew present – a stunt team, cheerleaders, skaters – band and there was no room for error since the clip was shot in only one take. A special film truck had to be brought in from France and the Intel experts provided great technical support.”

Proof of this intense collaboration with computer chip manufacturer is the “Making Of” which will have its global launch today on iQ sites, Intel’s online lifestyle and technology magazine.

Kurt De Buck, Social & Community Manager EMEA: “We are tech freaks at Intel and iQ is where we show what’s possible with technology. Creating the first 360 music video is a great example: with 64k-cameras, an impressive computer and the ‘stitching’ software we translated the enthusiasm of Noa Neal and her catchy song Graffiti into an overwhelming viewing experience.”
