The artist has an eclectic musical palette which is colored by Hip-hop, R&B, Pop, as well as Jazz and Rock tones.

Berani – “Cut And Taste” strikes an incredible balance of disparate elements

Berani is an electronic beat maker with a diverse sound spectrum and a tendency to produce bouncing rhythms or spacious and relaxing aural experiences. In a short time span, this emerging artist out of Byron Bay in Australia, has discerning music fans and casual listeners paying attention. The sound design throughout his latest single “Cut And Taste” is what we’ve come to expect from this creative top tier producer: popping percussion, basslines that melt like butter and a healthy dose of twisted horns to make everything bump in a soul-like fashion. Sprinkled around the track are sonic effects that keep

EsZ – “Liquor & Emotions” – introspective and emotional

Hip-hop has been cranking out bangers and high energy anthems for decades, but the average genre historian is well aware that dark or emotional thoughts on a chill backdrop is not a foreign concept for the game. After all, profound moodiness feels rather natural for a culture that grew out of urban plight and the trauma of purposely disenfranchised people. It makes sense that at least some mellow tunes in the genre, reflect deep-thinking speculation, in what artist EsZ, describes as thoughts on “life, growth and fake friends” in his track “Liquor & Emotions”. The song is a drunk text

Acemattz & Bipha shine on “Tshanana”

Watching Acemattz & Bipha perform in any of their videos is like watching friends realize they’re onto something big time. They are accomplished rappers individually, on their own terms, and as collaborators, as a unit, their styles gel perfectly. They’re not just comfortable performing together—they are feeding off of each other, refusing to be one-upped, beaming and grinning and head-bobbing as they take turns impressing one another. By the end of each of their performances, their formation into a real show-stopping combination seems inevitable. In the new wave rap scene, there is plenty of talent to go around, Acemattz &

FuzzKill – “The Get Better” reaches all the expected heights!

FuzzKill is a four-piece rock band that started in Boston, MA. Introduced to one another through musical theatre, the band’s sound is firmly rooted in early 2000’s pop-punk influences. They released their debut studio album, “Happen”, in early 2019, and their sophomore album, “The Get Better”, just dropped on September 19th 2020. We have all heard the biggest punk bands of the 90’s and early 00’s. Their music mainly consisted of driving drums, distorted pop-punk guitar work and a set of memorable lyrics to go with the angst-filled high energy vocals. Today punk bands are a rarity, and any good

Kissy Sell Out

Kissy Sell Out

The Carrillo Music Label is actually the name that drew me to this set the most. I do appreciate Kissy Sell Out and all that he does, and seeing his name attached to the quality of the Carrillo Music roster, was just too much to pass up, especially with the set boasting 3 diverse remixes by Sonic Snares, Storm and FRNKROK.  “Give Me Your Hand” is definitely a dance stomper. It is a great electro composition that starts small, promises big, and delivers with gusto.

Elliot Chapman performs the vocals for this track, and if Kissy Sell Out and Carrillo Music play their cards right it could be a bona fide club hit. It is a truly spectacular piece of music, and I find myself tapping my foot, or walking to the beat, and thanks to the incessant vocal hook which repeats: “Give me your hand”, I’m thinking about it at some point throughout the day.

“Give Me Your Hand” by Kissy Sell Out, featuring remixes by Sonic Snares, Storm and FRNKROK would appeal to anyone who likes EDM, regardless of its subgenres, as it gives your heart an electric charge and your feet a reason to move. Another winner from America’s hottest independent dance music label – Carrillo Music!
