Bobby Royale – “Live Jazz at Staarsound” – There is an artistic quality in the music that cannot be overlooked

Some see hip-hop and jazz as an unholy alliance, maybe even the vulgarization of jazz. But other musicians see the genre-melding as a positive development. Every so often, in some corner of the globe in fact, you’ll find a handful of jazz musicians experimenting with jazz and hip-hop hybrids. In some ways the musical connection would seem inevitable. After all, early gospel, blues and jazz employed call-and-response cadences dealing with the same themes prevalent in hip-hop today. For some, though, the similarities end there. Straight ahead jazz musicians who have had their music sampled appreciate their work being exposed to

J.Drive – “Untitled” showers the auditory canvas with musical ideas

Hailing from the inner city of Youngstown, Ohio’s Southside, Jessie “J.Drive” grew up in a small apartment in a violent neighborhood without his natural mother or father.  At a very young age he realized that his natural affinity for basketball and Hip-hop music would become the tools necessary to pave his way to a more comfortable lifestyle.  Despite the tragic events that ended his hoop dreams, Jessie’s understanding of what it takes to make the best of his gifts regardless of circumstances is what has brought him thus far. Currently he is pushing his latest single called “Untitled”. In his

“Millions” shows off how talented and self-assured DboySlim is!

“Millions”, the track by DboySlim, has an incendiary takeoff, wasting zero time to underscore the necessary sense of urgency through a compacted sonic boom and a room full of booty. The backdrop is made of a dynamic piano loop, skittering hi-hats, and twisting synths, while the rapper updates his dance-swaying lyricism. DboySlim is impressive to say the least, while the track absolutely bumps. He creates an intense atmosphere that makes you want to jump around and groove. “Millions” shows off how talented and self-assured DboySlim is, and how he can probably live up to any hype you want to put

Andree Cassielll – “Alimento” – a universality that makes him a perfect fit for the modern era!

The Mexico City native, Andree Cassielll, possesses a down-to-earth humility in his vocal tone that makes his storytelling raps feel like they’re always coming from a place of truth over fiction. Considering the producer and artist, predominantly sings and raps in Spanish, which I cannot understand, that’s an impressive feat. The trap-inspired beats flicker in and out as Andree becomes more invested in his storytelling, and it truly feels like you’re on the phone with a rambling friend. He’s a poet, capable of transporting you somewhere otherworldly with his sound. His music has a genuine fluidity, and if he continues

EH – “Mirrors” lets it fly with the fret-board work to thoroughly rock you!

Baltimore rock guitar ace EH reaffirms his top-of-the-heap status on his new 7 track album “Mirrors”. It’s a superlative set of new music full of tightly-written, engaging instrumentals that don’t need a singer up front to rock hard and hold your attention. This type of writing is EH’s trademark, and is one of the main reasons he will develop a audience. While many other technically-proficient rock guitarists mainly play for other guitar players, EH seems to play for the people. He relies less on continuous shredding and more, on dynamically impacting riffs. EH gets us going with his opening track, “Pounding

Boonie Mayfield – “While Black (Red Light, Blue Light, E’s and R’s)” – sentiments nurtured by a history of prejudice

Solomon Vaughn aka Boonie Mayfield has always traded dazzlingly intricate verses, intellectual thoughts and propulsive rhymes, over inventive, nonlinear productions, and his latest release “While Black (Red Light, Blue Light, E’s and R’s)” re-proposes that peerless aesthetic, while adding an ulterior dose of consciousness, and reinforcing his hard-won authenticity. “This song is a 2-part storyteller based on some of my personal experiences with racism; from getting racially profiled by police, dealing with stereotypes while dating and the ugly side of interacting on social media,” explained Boonie. “I was inspired to display some of the scenarios I’ve gone through on a

You have another.” The song introduces Sassy’s strengths: a voice with sultry intensity, songwriting that goes directly to the point and a production that is well aware of both EDM and Pop. The song’s arrangement is lucid and uncluttered, placing all

Sabrina Petrini: “Fucking In Love” – distinct vocal quality and lyrical mastery set in a sultry bed of mesmerizing music

Sabrina Petrini started her journey as a performer in Helsingborg, Sweden, where she owned and ran a dance school at the age of 16. She managed to write, direct and produce a musical by the time she was 19 and had a rock band under her name together with her brother Donatello Petrini. Sabrina is currently completing work in the studio with producer Gabe Lopez (James Brown, Jim Verraros, Universal) and Italian DJ/Producer Dechard, who are co-producing her solo EP expected to be released during the winter of 2015.

sabrina-petrini-400The first single off Sabrina Petrini’s solo EP, “Fucking In Love” was released February 2015. There is both a piano version and an EDM version of the single available on iTunes. “Fucking In Love” is one the most powerful and beautiful singles produced by a Swedish-born artist in a long while. And considering how prolific and consistently superb Swedish pop music artists are, this is a great achievement. Sabrina’s torch song delivery on the piano version and then mixed with all of the ‘big” modern sounds of today, on the EDM version goes right for the heart….and the throat.

Make no mistake about it, this young woman is a true artist and if she never makes another single or album, she has already delivered to the listening public, a song of truth, beauty and depth, through the medium of popular music. This has got a great sound with a melody and lyrics that will stay in your mind long after the strains of the last notes have ended.

Though she has already received many endowments, Sabrina needs no awards or accolades here, because the real winners are the ones who will play, listen and get lost in the imagery she weaves all across “Fucking In Love”. It’s hard to describe Sabrina Petrini’s music in a few words. It’s a fairy-dusting of resonating keyboards on top of an ethereal cadence, its lush instrumentals alongside precise vocal transitions from low diva seduction up to high full-throated vamp. Her music neither soothes nor satiates, but it captivates.

The music itself on “Fucking In Love” is utterly beguiling and masterfully arranged – vivid and memorable, impressionable and highly detailed. It is great headphone music too, and totally remix friendly for the best clubs in the world – as good as any classic ‘modern-pop’ single release in recent memory.

I admit that I am a little late to the Sabrina Petrini party but I’m glad to have witnessed her emotionally provoking video for the “Fucking In Love” track. Together with her distinct vocal quality and lyrical mastery set in a sultry bed of mesmerizing music, Sabrina creates a world of images and emotions. This orgasmic listening experience will no doubt reach its climax with the release of her upcoming EP… and I can’t wait!
