Frado180 – an instrumental artist and aspiring Hip hop producer from New York City, NY

Starting out as a passionate hip-hip DJ at the age of 15, Frado180 worked hard at the local gas station in order to own his first Turntable. And he never had to look back as a local group 2 in Room with hit single “Wiggle it” fame soon discovered his talent and helped him produce his first demo. At that moment his propulsive force of music truly began to take shape by its zig-zagging through genres, settling on moments of analogue clarity as well as digital refraction. Frado180 got his first real break when he landed a gig at a

Nachamuni – “Deep Down” a total floor filler with an infectious groove!

“Deep Down” is the new EDM single from electronic music producer Nachamuni, who is based in Vienna Austria. The track extends the reach of his signature sound. Most significantly, the Deep House track showcases a shift toward the high-minded, super-precise catchy pop production vibe of most modern electronic producers. The growling basslines have the potential to draw law enforcement officers to your doorstep, depending on the decibel level and kindness of your neighbors. Its structure dominates the landscape with both breathtaking impact and precision. The track refuses to recycle an old beat, gradually building from a melodic and soulful vocal

Kambiz Mirzaei – “The Lost Ambient” – a dominating melodic mellowness behind a rising wave of dynamic, ascending energy.

The Toronto based composer, Kambiz Mirzaei, has navigated between two musical cultures: from authentic transcendental Middle Eastern melodies to North American flavored ambient, electronic and orchestral arrangements. His collaboration with Jamshid Andalibi in 1999 initiated an alternative approach to traditional use of the folk instrument, Ney, in modern compositions. If you’re looking for an instrumental record that explores cross-culture electronic and ambient themes cohesively, look no further than the album – “The Lost Ambient” by Kambiz Mirzaei. I am astounded that Mirzaei isn’t talked about more often, because there is so much innovation in his compositions and production that it’s

Flav Martin: “Indestructible” – Beautiful poetry, strong melodies, gorgeous arrangements

Born in New York and raised in New Jersey, Flav Martin writes and performs an eclectic blend of folk, pop, and rock music. He makes music on a wide variety of acoustic guitars and other string instruments (some are about 10″ long!) with a unique percussive style encompassing melody, rhythm, bass, and percussion simultaneously. He also keeps a plethora of percussion instruments nearby, which he utilizes with impressive technique and innovative style.

Flav Martin

Following his 2014 album, “Not What It Seems”, Martin has now released the 11-track, “Indestructible”. I begin here not knowing how I can give this album the proper reverence that it truly deserves. Who can tell you what beauty is? Or love? Or any of the elegant traits that are bestowed upon us here? Words are used for lack of anything else. The true measure of Flav Martin’s music is felt within and varies depending on how much emotion you let yourself feel. Yes, it’s that incredible!

This album will turn you on to Flav Martin’s awesome style of lyrics and intricate imageries weaved with his creative acoustic based tapestries. Begin a day with a cup of coffee, watching the sunrise, and listening to the groove of “Three Wishes” and you’ll understand that this is an incredibly remarkable piece of music that will remain a mainstay in your collection.

Beautiful poetry, strong melodies, gorgeous arrangements of varying styles is what you will find in abundance throughout this album. Flav Martin is a singer-songwriter who has his creative feet in several musical worlds, spanning rock, pop, country and folk. He is not a flashy artist, coming across as more focused on his art than on being caught up in the media hype that seems to snare so many musicians today. Martin is a throwback to the days when music was more honest and familiar, a modern minstrel singing to please himself and whichever audience will listen.

From the opening notes of “Nothing for Nothing” to the closing track, “Drinking You”, the album’s almost spiritual frankness lasts long after its last notes fade. Combine Martin’s clear, sensitive voice with his deft handling of numerous instruments, and you come away with the sensation that this musical poet has just touched your heart.

Simplicity can be a beautiful thing in this complicated world where things aren’t always the way that they should be. It’s honest and reassuring, and it connects each generation with the wisdom of the past. The music on this album is heartwarming and natural in its simplicity, and it is also thoughtful and compassionate. Martin’s lyrics of love and life are genuinely majestic, and his mastery of the acoustic guitar is impressive.

This much comes to note through the inspiring melodies of “Wild Moon”, “Soul Redemption” and “Drinking You”, probably my favorite 3 songs on the entire album. But Flav Martin is also a musical master craftsman who can carefully write and arrange intricate songs that are elegant and precise – exactly what he does on the eclectic rhythms of “Colors”, “Outta Here” and the acoustic six-string picking on “Laura’s Theme”.

The songs on “Indestructible” span a variety of styles, however all have layers of emotion attached to them. Moving, thought provoking, and inspiring. Just beautiful!
