Triple threat alternative rock artist Zachary Ray

Born in Rhode Island, Zachary Ray is a Danish/American musician residing in Los Angeles. He was introduced to Metallica and Eminem at age 5, by his mother and stepfather, and became wildly obsessed with drumming. Hence his grandma from Rhode Island gave him his first drum set. Ray later took drum lessons and eventually also learned to play the guitar. This was followed by singing, which gave Zachary Ray the musical combination to perform and record with absolute artistic freedom. His latest release, is the single ”Trouble”. How long have you been performing and recording, and did you record or

Nega Blast X: “The Experiment” – this caliber and artistic conviction is required for this art to evolve

There’s really no words to describe the sound of Nega Blast X. The Burbank music arranger, author and digital artist, Dominic R Daniels, sole proprietor of the Nega Blast X project, is in a realm of his own and hardly many can touch that artsy creativity he has under the hood. Based in the trance, techno and industrial idioms since 2010, Daniels is inspired by Daft Punk, Orbital, My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult and The Mutaytor. “The Experiment”, Nega Blast X’s third album is released on Amazon, Spotify, iTunes, and all other major digital download stores. Artistically speaking, Nega

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

BogglesWorth: “NERVE” – the resonance between the melody and the rhythm is comprehensively hypnotizing

I have thoroughly enjoyed the majority of BogglesWorth’s previous works, and his latest release – the “NERVE” Ep – does not disappoint in any way. Every track is easy to listen to. It’s one of those productions that you will enjoy playing in its entirety, not just download a one or two tracks to your iPod and forget about the rest. This is good old fashioned Progressive Electronic Music from BogglesWorth. And if like me, you were in anticipation of any new stuff after his previous releases, this 6-track electronic exploration will be a great addition to your library.

From track one, “Beeper”, I instantly liked the creative synth use and the modulated bass movements, while the resonance between the melody and the rhythm is comprehensively hypnotizing. And it just get better from there on out. As a whole, “NERVE” is full of dense bass-lines, heavy drum hits, and riveting breakdowns. BogglesWorth is able to produce thick soundscapes punctuated by driving drumbeats. The sum total of this is a quality Ep with solid replay value.

The best way to listen to this is while driving or exercising; as it is upbeat enough to keep you energized but the overall lack of vocals lends itself beautifully to becoming superb background music to activities that need to keep your senses operative on all levels without being overly intrusive.

The music on “Bill Clinton” and the title track, “NERVE” can set you off into a dreamy bliss or make you bob your head to its catchy synth riffs and booming drum-lines. The rhythm never gets too monotonous to bore and the build-break-drop patterns iterate so quickly that it almost produces melodies of their own. BogglesWorth proves that he can make music that is equally well-suited as a soundtrack for work or for play, with “NERVE”. If you dig perfectly cultivated distortion, fat beats and catchy tunes, then this is the stuff.

“NERVE” is an electronic Ep that’s crafted from pure awesome. The drums and bass-lines in “Scottie’s California Cornflakes” and “E.Z.” are spectacular, and the electronica in “Blue Tuesday” is amazing to say the least. This is music which washes over you, oozes into your soul, and digs its way into your sub-consciousness. “NERVE” is best listened to with some serious volume or quality headphones. Not to mention that a couple of tracks here will well and truly really blow the club dance-floor to shreds!

Once again BogglesWorth delivers an extremely well-produced and put together release. His mesmerizing beats and interwoven layers will make you see electronic music in a different way. Each song on “NERVE” can stand alone, and yet each song fits perfectly next the others. The entire Ep is solid. BogglesWorth knocks it out of the park with this one!

MORE ABOUT – BogglesWorth is an Electronic Music Producer from Southern California. Using digital/analog synths with earth shattering beats, he creates a unique underground sound. Not a fan of genre, he believes music is a form of art, let it stand as it is and be appreciated. This mysterious producer is hard at work cranking out gnarly tunage and bringing originality back to music. Created from obscure and unconventional, fueled by strange, BogglesWorth is bizarre, peculiar, awkward and just a bit weird. From his music to his life, this rebel is always pushing the limit.
