Andy Pett – “Dumb Love” is a punchy, bouncy hip-hop track soaked in a lyrical edge

One of my favorite rap artists of late. Norwegian Andy Pett’s music speaks from the heart, to the heart. His tracks are infectious and his lyrics inspiring. From beginning to end you get a picture of what it means to be a normal person with issues. The whole point of Andy’s music is that we are all in the same boat. Whether a rapper or a high school kid or a middle aged white guy working in a bank, everyone struggles with the same issues – forgiveness, lust, faith, guilt, failure and feelings of unworthiness. Andy’s previous single release, “Back

Alterego Vibe: “Coming Back To Life” – gorgeous melodies and funky rhythms

Alterego Vibe was conceived in 2010, and originally started its journey in Italy as a bunch of close friends and musicians from the local live scene, who intended to create a collective that mixed their common funk-soul roots along with their eclectic nature and experiences across modern Pop, Dance and R&B themes. Working on their first tunes, they grew to the current 8-piece band with a powerful grooving rhythm section and a warm 3-part vocal harmony ensemble, all surrounded by modern electronic textures and loops.

alterego-vibe-350aAlterego Vibe dropped their debut EP in January 2012, followed by their first appearance on Italian National Radio. During the same year, the band decided to base their activities in London.  In 2013 they released their full debut album, “Back To Life”, entirely written, recorded and produced by the band and published by Cringe Music and Red Admiral Records UK. The album garnered immediate success on the Amazon and Reverbnation Soul Charts.

The Alterego Vibe core-members include:  Valentina Marciano (lead vocal, backing vocals), Flavio Bonetto (lead vocal, backing vocals), Christian Madella (guitars, keyboard & programming), Andrea Calvagna (bass, synth bass, keyboard & programming) and Cristiano Moro (drums). Around these core members rotates a wide variety of guests who come in from time to time to add further dimensions to the band’s sound.

alterego-vibe-350bAlterego Vibe who has recently released their official video for the single, “Coming Back To Life”, is a band that writes real songs with a gift for crafting gorgeous melodies, funky rhythms and setting it all to some of the most lush arrangements; proof that someone still makes music with a true passion for the art form, and popular music is all the better for their existence.

While current urban pop wallows in the mire of overhyped male crooners and worn-out female divas that radio programmers call ‘new soul’, Alterego Vibe delivers funky rhythms and smooth melodic grooves. They are true music makers with actual talent, who play real instruments and arrange huge, gorgeous pieces of soulful paradise!

alterego-vibe-350cFor those of you who have not come across Alterego Vibe before, you are missing out…as much as I did! They are an outfit with a lot of professional, musical integrity and consistency. Just about any kind of club you could imagine who likes funky music with a strong groove could easily find a place for this band not only on their dance-floors but blaring from the speakers in the background of everything else too.

Using both male and female vocals, Alterego Vibe assembles great contemporary funk-driven music with strong Acid Jazz influences. The suave finesse of fusing R&B, funk, jazz and modern pop sounds from this British-based, Italian group is a testament that music like this is truly food for the heart, mind, and soul!

If you’re sick of the same sampled beats, bass lines and vocal hooks that dominate today’s music, look no further than the refreshingly spunky sounds of “Coming Back To Life”. The music is outstanding, with the colorful intonations of guitars, keyboards, percussion, harmonies and magnificently melodic vocals, all-round. This is another timeless classic for Alterego Vibe!
