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

Pastor Peter Unger Releases New Single “The Memories of God”

NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE, USA — Peter wrote this song for the older people, who he had the honor and privilege of ministering to over many years. Pete explained that many had a humble, kind, and appreciative dignity; qualities born of a long life shaped by faith and wisdom. Most were to experience the debilitating effects of age, including mental decline and dementia. During visits he struggled and prayed with them through the inevitable spiritual and emotional valleys of such a decline. He further explained that those, for whom faith and a personal relationship with God most defined what it meant to

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,

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.”
