Bizeeee: “Looking For It” – an out-of-this-world scenario!

What separates #Bizeeee aka #4ez from many of today’s rappers, is his indestructible delivery. Every verse no matter what he is rapping, he relentlessly pound his rhymes into your head mercilessly, with bone crushing stanzas and a ruthless attitude. Every word spoken shows an aggressive mood and seemingly cannot be stopped by anything. With this intensity also comes a very dramatic and cinematic driven production. This intense style is especially shown 4ez’s latest single, “Looking For It”. This song is driven by a rhythmic drumbeat, hissing hi-hats, and harmonized by futuristic and spacey keys. This is a chance for 4ez to step

Quintin Tarintinto: “No Self Pity” – dense articulation!

Tallahassee, Florida rapper, Quintin Tarintinto has his 2019 fifteen track project, “No Self Pity”, out right now. This is the record many of Tarintinto’s contemporaries would love to make, but they don’t have a sufficient enough state of consciousness to draw inspiration from, or truly focus the menagerie of their minds upon. It’s the most topically cohesive, palatable and headily conscious Tarintinto ever been for an entire set of songs. His universal vision makes it all work together in perfect, coalescing, high-tech harmony. A less knowledgeable Quintin Tarintinto might have asked compelling questions and never get to present the answers projected

3Mind Blight: “Make This Right” – transcribes emotions into music perfectly

Let’s begin with the fact that 3Mind Blight doesn’t make music for the fans or the label. In the era of rappers who are doing it for the gram, 3Mind Blight is all about the art of self-expression: he isn’t rich, he isn’t cocky, and he respects those who came before him. His style is not rap focusing on bling or hedonism, instead he observes and tries to teach us everyday lessons about ourselves, but his focus is also knowing he is better now than he once was and only plans to get better, something that should be recognized as

Flo: “Mix in a Water” – all of it is crisp and gorgeous!

James Florio aka Flo, is a Toronto, Canada based producer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. His signature style combines diverse musical elements and genres together to create an immersive listening experience. The rich mixture of delicate sounds, booming basslines and silky, chopped vocals will keep listeners coming back for more. His latest single is “Mix in a Water”. Is there any way to describe the music of Flo other than stylistically shimmering, and rhythmically hypnotic? Not really: write down those words and free-associate as much as possible with eclectic and luscious, and chances are you’ll have written Flo’s press blurb. The Flo

Capo 2G: “Pullup” ft. KirkoBanz – a tidal wave of aural sensation!

Capo 2G is a Hip Hop artist currently based in Las Vegas, Nevada. Originally from Lagos, Nigeria, his unique, island fused sound which he defines as AfroHipHop is one of the many factors giving rise to his growing fan base. Capo 2G’s close relationship with A-listers such as Rae Sremmurd gives him the opportunity to learn from the front lines as he prepares himself to step into the spotlight. He begins his first solo tour in Trinidad, Colorado on February 21st. This isn’t exactly a startling revelation, but hip-hop has always been rife with emcees who style themselves as unrepentant

Natalie Jean: “What Would You Do For Love?” – a show-stopping exhibition

Admittedly I have been waiting years now for Natalie Jean to surpass her previous levels of excellence; she had arrived quietly with not much fanfare, and she steadily declared her arrival with a number of albums, singles and collaborative efforts. Needless to say I was impressed. Yet, while I immediately acclaimed and understood that Ms. Jean was indeed extremely talented, she had, as far as I was personally (and secretly) concerned, yet to produce anything indicating she was even close to showcasing what I suspected to be her fully unrealized potential—that is of course until I listened to “What Would

Jevil Project: “Shade” – Positive artistic aggression!

The Jevil Project is a France-based instrumental metal act, who does not perform live, but prefers to create music meant to be listened to. Jevil Project is proficient at marrying sludge metal riffery with dirtier post-rock guitar melodies. Trudging, down-tuned riffs drive each song, while subtle melodic movements develop on top. This pattern works to fantastic effect on the 4 track EP – “Shade”. There are tons of incredibly inspiring moments on this album. There are also plenty of riffs that will make your head bang uncontrollably. Moreover there seems to be sense of adventure on the recording, and with

Joey Cutless

He has freshly released “Veni Vedi Vici – Orchestral Compositions By Joey Cutless”. It is the perfect synthesis of orchestral and electronic scoring, with each track being dark, moody, majestic, and exciting. These 5 epic compositions are seriously waiting for a movie to happen. Even the song titles allude to as much. As a lover of film scores, I enjoy listening to scores on their own in the album format. But there is often a dichotomy in film scoring – the mandate for the composer is to create music that works for the film. So there’s no requirement that the music sound good on its own; it just has to support the visuals on screen. Not the case here, as Joey Cutless has no visuals to support hiS music, so it needs to standalone…and be good.

“Veni Vedi Vici – Orchestral Compositions By Joey Cutless” is a symphony of electronic sampling and percussion. In many ways, it’s a representation of what film scoring has become in the new century. But if you think you’ll be missing the classical themes and fanfare, think again. The album opens with “Battle With Godz” and it’s like a cover to a book. It lets you know what’s coming. I dare you to turn this one up loud because it’s rolling percussion and strings will move you. “Kill Ceasar” has plenty of great moments, again, mostly coming from the grandiose percussion, as well as the brass.

“March of Destiny” will scare the mess out of you, if you still have the dial turned up loud. I literally jumped…trust me. The drum rhythms are marching, war like, and hard hitting throughout much of the track and there is plenty of musical variety to keep things interesting. And if you think things are slowing down due to the choral intro of “Operandi”, you’re wrong. It’s a piece that hums along, grows, diverges, relying more on the choir-like voicings and the majestic string section, than it does on the percussion. I like it when music gives me a picture and this track does just that. The last bars of this piece remind me of a proud warrior walking through the battlefield music. “Lord Of The Orch”, is really cool. It’s a great closing piece that is worthy of a hero riding off in the sunset after his victorious battle.

You’re probably not going to be sipping cappuccino while watching the birds through the window with this playing in the background. You’ll need Mozart for that. Listening to “Veni Vedi Vici – Orchestral Compositions By Joey Cutless” you’ll need to let the theater of your mind create its own adventures. You’ll enjoy and appreciate the sheer artistry of Joey Cutless. He has done an outstanding job here. All the tracks are deep in symphonic sound with plenty of dramatic tones. The music is capable of completely filling a room, the headphones and even the atmosphere of your car.

“Veni Vedi Vici – Orchestral Compositions By Joey Cutless” is just an awe-inspiring collection of classically inspired orchestral soundscapes – beautifully recorded, mixed and mastered – which basically sends out the message that there is hope; there is redemption; and there are urban heroes like Joey Cutless out there willing to put their creativity on the line for the good of music, in any and every genre!
