Nega Blast X: “The Experiment” – this caliber and artistic conviction is required for this art to evolve

There’s really no words to describe the sound of Nega Blast X. The Burbank music arranger, author and digital artist, Dominic R Daniels, sole proprietor of the Nega Blast X project, is in a realm of his own and hardly many can touch that artsy creativity he has under the hood. Based in the trance, techno and industrial idioms since 2010, Daniels is inspired by Daft Punk, Orbital, My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult and The Mutaytor. “The Experiment”, Nega Blast X’s third album is released on Amazon, Spotify, iTunes, and all other major digital download stores. Artistically speaking, Nega

Tisabel: “GENRE HOPPING” bristles with energy and artistic audacity

Longtime Musical director and vocalist Tony Isabel aka Tisabel boasts an unprecedented skill set. He writes, arranges, sings, plays, and performs. He busts taboos, flashes unstoppable ambition, blends genres together like paint. Soulful ballads and funky grooves, ambient new age soundscapes, Hip-hop fantasy, and divine EDM devotion. For these qualities alone, he deserves respect. However, as you know, respect is also kind of a bullshit concept. Your favorite songs may not grace anyone else’s mixes; your favorite artists may not have ever left town. A century of recorded music has given us a galaxy of worthy tunes. But the gravitational

Lee Lee Lanea: “Basswhipped” resonates gloriously

Beats aren’t gendered. So why are we still in the dark ages when it comes to gender equality in the music studio? Women represent less than 5% of music producers and engineers. Yes, the music industry—like every industry on this patriarchal planet—is sexist. That is not news. But this means we’re missing out on a whole world of sounds, stories, and perspectives. Our culture has systematically ingrained this idea that technology is more of a man’s thing. Then of course there’s the fact that most men get freaked out when women do things better than them or even as good

DownTown Mystic: “On E STREET” is filled with exceptional music!

Sha-La Music, Inc. announces the release of On E Street, a 4 song EP by US Rocker DownTown Mystic on UK Label Nub Music. The EP’s release date is December 1 and will be digitally distributed via ADA/Warner Music. The EP features rare studio performances by the Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame rhythm section from Bruce Springsteen’s legendary E Street Band – drummer “Mighty” Max Weinberg & bassist Garry Tallent. Despite having played with Springsteen for over 40 years and studio work for various artists, Max & Garry have only played together on the same session for only a few artists. This puts DownTown Mystic in some very exclusive company. DownTown Mystic started as the alter ego of

Mobb Boss: “Lil Lady” – the depth, perspective and hunger of a performer

Being respected, revered and admired as an emcee is what often elevates a rapper from being one who merely strings together words that rhyme into an appreciated lyricist of the highest order. However, while there are a long string of spitters and scribes that have come along, the elite few who have found themselves mentioned in conversations and debates when discussing quality artists, have one thing in common: a track record of consistently delivering music that make the most of their lyrical abilities and serve as a piece of themselves. When speaking of today’s pack of underground orators, Mobb Boss

Pastor Peter Unger Releases New Single “The Memories of God”

NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE, USA — Peter wrote this song for the older people, who he had the honor and privilege of ministering to over many years. Pete explained that many had a humble, kind, and appreciative dignity; qualities born of a long life shaped by faith and wisdom. Most were to experience the debilitating effects of age, including mental decline and dementia. During visits he struggled and prayed with them through the inevitable spiritual and emotional valleys of such a decline. He further explained that those, for whom faith and a personal relationship with God most defined what it meant to

King Draper: “1992” – simplistic in its premise but unquestionably real in its execution

You can’t write about underground or independent hip-hop and not write about King Draper. Or at least I seemingly can’t. For the past couple years the man’s been a nearly constant presence in my journalistic exploits. And now, I’m sitting down again to review his latest 11 track project, “1992”.  The King hits me with dope music and I write about it, and I’m more than happy with the arrangement. If you’ve peeped any of King Draper’s projects before, what you get from this project won’t surprise you. Draper with his soulful, jazzy, production and his smart anecdotes detailing tales

Edgler Vess: “Violet” – essential to your hip-hop collection

Every album that Edgler Vess releases, breathes with a distinct personality, each a shape-shifting assemblage of personage and programming that sounds more like a kind of miraculous hyperlinked sound collage than rap. His lyrical feats go unmatched for sheer idiosyncrasy and insight; beyond rap enthusiasts, many of his strongest supporters are probably writers and music heads. A master of the microphone and the beats, Vess has constantly swapped out his tools and themes, avoiding revision and instead choosing innovation. When Edgler Vess does what he does, he’s impossible to ignore. He’s profound, he’s impressive, and he’s damn entertaining. In short,

Dadanaut is currently working on a new album

Dadanaut is a dadaistic memory unit for memories and special moments. Both things that can be forgotten or overlooked too fast in the noise of everyday’s life. His main task is thus to save. Therefore, one could call him a memory unit.

How valuable these mundane things are, is often noticed only by his storage activity. He helps to remember. Through his music he would like to intensify the concentration on those little things. He wants to distract from the basic noise of everyday life and to take the listeners into small daydreams. Let’s call it Kopfkino.

dadanaut-auf-reiseFrom which time he really originates, who sent him on his mission, or when he stops, nobody knows. It’s known, that he was sighted the first time in the 1920s. His appearance must’ve been very fascinating and strange to the people back then.

The first eyewitnesses’ statements contained words like: “These must’ve been the crazy Dadaists. He looks as if he’s one of them, they just want to confuse us.” Some others were more thoughtful, and remarked: “Somebody wants to hold a mirror up on us.”

Anyway. One thing is for sure … to everyone: Dadanaut just wants to remember. Recently he’s been on a trip around the world. Just to visit some good old friends. By airship.

On his way back his camera fell over board. What a pity. So he packed the memories he got from this trip into songs. Now they bring back the landscapes, moments and encounters instead. At least in his mind.

A pleasant experience. Hopefully for you too…

Here’s a song to get an idea: Jan / Ostfriesland (Jan in Eastern Frisia)

And on his trip he even could receive some messages. With interferences and overlays though:

The album has some classical influences. Let’s say that Mike Oldfield, Pink Floyd, Mozart, Bach and Can were involved as idea generators. It’s mainly Kopfkino and should be enjoyed with headphones on.
