Powerful, soulful vocalists don’t come around every day, and Italian singer/songwriter Laura Pizzicannella is one of them. Her debut single “Killing My Love” set for release on Jan. 17, 2020, showcases her soaring vocals which are reminiscent of both Florence Welch (of Florence and the Machine) and Adele. “Killing My Love” is a love song about a relationship that has ended and how you try to kill any feelings for the other person that are left in your heart. It’s a very strong, heartfelt and melancholy track written and produced by Flavio and Claudio Zampa. As a founding member of

Kidricc James – “Gravy” – The gravity in the words is matched by the sound of the production!

Texas-based rapper, Kidricc James drops his dynamic new single “Gravy”. The track which has been peaking on Digital Radio Tracker’s Global Top 150 Independent Airplay Chart, is also supported by an engaging video shot in Houston. If I had to give a quick intro into this track, it would be: Great emotional depth in storytelling. Engaging beat. Thoroughly satisfying rap skills. More than just multisyllabic rhymes. Relatable and relevant. I think Kidricc James accomplished his intents with this track. “Gravy”really revolves around him in a much more different way than his prior works.

Ervin Mitchell drops the official music video for ‘Break The Internet’

Emerging rap star Ervin Mitchell reminds us to “count our blessings every day” in the official music video to ‘Break The Internet’. On the track, Ervin Mitchell proves that he is a master at his craft of writing. I also love his style when it comes to his vocal and rapping abilities. His sound is different, laidback, almost melancholic in a way. The track is a beautiful character study that will make you consider the importance of social media, the problem of money, and the meaning of life in general. In a world full of meaningless music, it’s always great

Warchief Rasco – “Good Ones Go To Soon” continues his atmospheric Hip-hop fusion sound!

“Good Ones Go To Soon” is an oath for the real ones I’ve lost in my life from either drugs, violence, or suicide to keep going hard and following the dream while spreading love all at the same time,” says Warchief Rasco.

The cut has a quality backing instrumental, complete with a reverbed staccato guitar riff and a

Get Tribal: “God of Drum” – hypnotic and deeply evocative!

God of Drum by Get Tribal was not only nominated for Best World Album and Best New Artist of 2014 by Zone Music Reporter, but it is a convergence of Kari Hohne’s prowess with electronic music, percussion and her highly effective knowledge of ancient cultures and mystical Chakra healing . Inspired by the ways in which ancient cultures used drums as a part of healing rituals, Kari with her Get Tribal project, chose to create an album designed to stimulate the 7 major Chakras, the Dantien, the Soul Star and Spirit Chakras.

The album “God of Drum”, utilizes an impressive array of drums from different cultures, and inspired by deities ranging from India to the Afro Caribbean, Gaelic, Mesopotamia, and Mesoamerica regions among others. Listeners will find this multifaceted, meditative sonic environment to be both hypnotic and entrancing, helping them to embark on inner journeys with ease.

Kari Hohne - Get Tribal

Kari Hohne – Get Tribal

Drumming, as we know, can be hypnotic and deeply evocative, which is aptly demonstrated on the 10 tracks making up “God of Drum”. Sometimes, however, it’s also possible for drum music to be repetitive, inducing the listener to lose interest. Not so here, as the drums and percussion are gently nudged on by delicate and suggestive instrumentation, that may include flutes, panpipes, nature sounds, voices, and a hint of keyboards, giving the listener a feeling of being a part of this ceremony.

Whether you follow these ancient traditions and rituals or are simply an armchair Shaman, you will feel the intensity and mystery inherent in this album. For centuries, Shamanic practitioners have journeyed into the spirit worlds in search of healing. Using altered states they obtained knowledge, power and guidance. In the current age of environmental and social crisis many people everywhere are beginning to return to this ancient form of wisdom. “God of Drum” by Get Tribal, will help provide a musical catalyst which can serve as a tool for ordinary people searching for a way to reconnect with ancient wisdom.

Moreover, listening to the motion and manner of God of Drum – with its captivating, peaceful and sometimes thought provoking musical themes – induces me to think that these percussion pieces could also simply be enjoyed for what they represent technically – a synergistic blending of earthly instruments, combined with Kari Hohne’s knack for delicate melody and ambient soundscapes – giving the music a universal ‘New Age’ appeal. Translated, this means that all those who value well-defined, balanced song structures, with just the right amount of melody will really enjoy “God of Drum”, regardless of its instrumentation or Chakra stimulating principles.

Kari Hohne, a Lake Tahoe resident, is somewhat of an anomaly in the current electronic music genre; a language preserver, master diver, best-selling author, app designer, dream analyst, business consultant, Tai-Chi teacher, and world traveler whose strongest passion remains music, and where drumming plays an integral part in her creative art.

“I believe drumming has its own melodic tonality. It engages the heart and can lead the listener on a journey of awakening to empowerment,” says Kari, continuing, “I purposely create space in my compositions that startle the listener to open to the unexpected. Like dreaming, it is our journey into the unknown that teaches us the most.”

After listening to “God of Drum” it became clear that Kari had done a remarkable job in translating the spirit of her words into a listenable, inspirational, and involving form, as there is a very powerful, authentic depth and immediacy in “God of Drum” that will assist altered consciousness states. If Get Tribal’s goal was to provide a musical catalyst for contemporary people looking for a way to reconnect with their inner selves as well as savor the sounds that inspired ancient wisdom, then that mission has been accomplished tenfold.
