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.

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,

Trey Connor: “While Everything Is Now” – At the core it’s positive pop!

Trey Connor hasn’t hit stardom just yet. But that’s because his Debut CD “While Everything Is Now” is only releasing to the general public on the 15th of December 2016. From the moment that I put the EP on, I was pleasantly surprised at how upbeat and unique the music sounded. The opener “What You Are (My Spark)”, is a surprisingly catchy song that grabs your attention with its anthemic and organic musical arrangement.

Not to mention Trey’s urgent, soaring and almost gravelly vocal delivery, peppered with some falsetto interludes. Whatever the title of the EP had prepared me for, this obviously was much more than I was expecting.

The second track, “Stay” was also a very nice change in pace, and some of the sound effects and how Trey’s voice weaves in and out of the pumping beat just creates this increasing feeling of building energy. I think that’s what I like most about Trey Connor; his voice and the way that it blends in with the music and just amplifies every song.

Songs like “Hold On” and “You” are enjoyable rock-infused ones that I can promise you’ll always crank the radio right up for if they were to come on. And if like me, you have a penchant for the slower acoustic driven stuff, the sound and style changes at times as well, like on “My Ghosts”.

At the core it’s still the positive pop sound derived from various elements of different genres, with shining vocal lead-melodies. Trey then switches back to more banging pop-rock sound on “Best Of Days” to close the EP.  All these songs are just written insightfully and they’re produced masterfully.

No doubt, 19 year-old singer-songwriter Trey Connor is set to debut with a batch of playfully rolling, foot-stompingly infectious anthems, where he celebrates his roots with a booming production and high energy vocals.

The production together with Trey’s songwriting and performing talents puts Connor into the modern pop-rock realm with a bang. Plus his mix of whimsical and incisive lyrics and knack for writing singalong melodies will make fans fantasize with the deeper emotions they will definitely plumb from these musical creations.

Trey Connor’s debut record features almost all catchy and upbeat tracks he wrote himself, about romance, relationships and personal feelings and experiences. Compared to others in his lane, Trey has a raw sounding voice which resonates with shining brilliance on these songs, and he also plays some solid guitar to enhance your listening experience even more.

Trey Connor, the former leader of the band, Bulletproof Snow, will unveil his debut solo EP “While Everything Is Now” on Cave Radio Broadcasting’s weekly Friday night show “The A List”, hosted by Aimee List and Ron Russell.  The event format will include airing and discussing the EP, as well as live acoustic performances by Trey.
