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

Sassy Vee – “In My Dreams” has a fantastic chill dance rhythm running its course

Longing, hope, and a need to believe in reality, pour out of “In My Dreams”, the new singer by singer-songwriter Sassy Vee. It’s a clear, accomplished cry from the heart, exorcising its illusions by declaring them bluntly. “In my dreams we’re together. Holding hands and making plans forever. I wish it were true, but I cannot be with you. 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

It’s sometimes hard to find the words that accurately bring justice to avant-garde electronic works. With an artist like Maki you almost only have to mention his name for fans of the underground independent scene, to understand the potential for a great album of music. Maki should be an instantly recognizable global name within the mainstream electronic world of sound. His latest release, “Atlas Hacked”, is a classic album in the making.
