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

Interview: STRONG A.R.M. – Coming straight out of Brownsville, Brooklyn NYC!

STRONG A.R.M. is the name that describes the 6’2″, 200 plus pound Brooklyn native who is definitely taking on ALL HATERS! It’s a perfect description of his overall attitude. This is one artist that believes anything goes when it comes to his music. He did not choose to do hardcore hip hop, hardcore hip hop chose him! It allows him to say what the hell he wants. Bringing it straight to the front line so your attention is caught and kept. Don’t get STRONG A.R.M. wrong though, that is just one area of hip hop he is good at, he

Haze Brown: “$10theRAPhy” makes your dreams come to life

Influenced by a variety of artists such as Outkast, Redman, KRS One, Alanis Morrisette, Queen, Whitney Houston, Kendrick Lamar, Childish Gambino, and Prince just to name a few, along with his love of Hip-hop, Rock, Pop, and R&B, molded Haze Brown into the lyricist he is today. Haze reigns from Northern New Jersey, where he began to flex his musical talents at 16 by trying his hand at Hip Hop after being encouraged by his high school peer J. Sweetz, whom he has rhymed with ever since.

Along with Haze’s versatility to rhyme on any subject, his melting pot of creativity inspired a musical catalog which consists of: F.O.H. (F@$k Outta Here) (2008), Hip Hop+Real Skills (2009), Bright Lights Dim Minds (2011), Hip Hop+Real Skills Vol.2 (2013) and $10theRAPhy (2015).

Haze Brown’s$10theRAPhy” is one of the most underrated albums I have ever heard. This album makes your dreams come to life. It doesn’t sugar coat and it doesn’t manipulate your emotions. What it does is take you to a special place that is indescribable. Yet the feeling never seems to wear off. It takes you there every time you listen to it.

The reason many people have probably not heard this album is that the music is strictly for hip-hop sophisticates and stoners. The main-streamers will need to clean their ears from the radio junk first. Another thing that is special about “$10theRAPhy” is that there are no noticeable guest appearances. The album is mostly Haze Brown expressing himself, and this album certainly represents freedom of expression.

The highlights on this album include the bouncing “SpaceCataz”, “View Askew(Rolling Fatties)”, a mind-blowing alternative song with a dark melody and harmonic loops, “Quitters Never Win”, which has an original looped beat and lyrical choice, “Ra-Ra Shit (Circa 1989)”, a track where Haze Brown takes us on a retro, old school trip on top of a funky beat. “ATTACK!!…Of The Munchies”, one of the most superb tracks on the album with its cranky vocal loop and an amazing concept.

The best track on this album is the soul and rhythm masterpiece “Twisted Everyday”, it has some of the best stoner storytelling and a great retro beat. All the tracks are really excellent though and they all shine in their own special ways. To conclude my review, I would like to say “$10theRAPhy” is one of the most special and original stoner albums of all time.

I really loved it because it is good to just have 30-40 minutes or so to just relax and blow your mind to an album like this. I found it original and thought-provoking. It doesn’t matter if you’re a smoker or non-smoker, it will fill you with many ideas and theories about life. It doesn’t make you feel like you have to fit in and doesn’t make you feel bad about yourself either. It just helps to ease you into being yourself.

If you remember when hip hop sounded good and you could actually play an album all the way through, listen to this. Haze Brown represents only himself, not caring about what others are going to say. He is completely in his zone. “$10theRAPhy” is the perfect album if you want to blow your mind!
