Donny Richmond – A Creative Genius who remain true to his core beliefs

Donny Richmond makes a career of expanding the borders of what it means to be a performer. All the while, he seeks to remain true to his core beliefs, and the faith that sustains him. Donny’s latest international single release, “A Satisfied Mind”, is a step back in time – an intriguing remake of the #1 Porter Wagoner hit of the 1950’s, written by Jack Rhodes and Joe Hayes. The late, great Porter Wagoner was the host for Donny’s initial appearance on The Grand Ole Opry in 1997. And Donny is a longtime admirer of Porter’s laid back style. As

Stellar Lane: “Reflection” bridges the gap between true grit and pure emotion

Lead singers and siblings Jonathan and Udi Vogelsang formed the alternative rock back Stellar Lane based in Tel-Aviv, Israel. The brothers who have been playing and composing music for years are heavily influenced by Seattle’s Grunge era, hence their music has a nineties flavor, without however, losing its modern indie and alternative elements. Having two lead-singers allows Stellar Lane to give an energetic and diverse performance which has conquered many stages. The band has already toured North-America and Europe including shows at the Canadian Music Week festival (Toronto, Canada) and Deichbrand festival (Bremerhaven, Germany) which gained interest in local radio

Fenix: “All Around The World” ft. Chris Casino contains the essential ingredients of a pop confection

Alexander Mamonov rose through the sporting ranks in his home country of Russia, eventually landing squarely in Russia’s Youth Olympic volleyball team.  A self-professed hip-hop and classic rock enthusiast, Manomov had a strong attraction towards music and was quickly drawn into the electronic sphere after frequenting the Moscow club scene. In 2004 his moniker DJ Fenix started off his career and began sharpening his skills and building his network. A collaboration with the UK dance duo led to his debut single “I Believe” which achieved mainstream success in various countries, including the U.S., Australia, Germany and the UK. Fenix’s career

Robot Raven: “Life Goes On” – relationships and its attached emotions

With “Life Goes On”, Robot Raven’s latest album, it’s tempting to zoom in on any single turning point in the duo’s timeline to figure out how they made it here. The obvious choices are “Greatest Hits, Part One”, and then “Greatest Hits, Part Two”, containing 36 of their best tracks, and released before any other album or single.  John Rigg (singer, instrumentalist and producer) and Edmond Bruneau (lyricist), have a habit of doing things in an odd manner, which perfectly matches their eclectic characters anyway.  Rigg creates robot machines and is reputed to have the world’s largest museum dedicated to toy and

“Sunshine” – Artem Cithara (ft. Nicole Elizabeth & Slick Sax) conjures immediate and unflinching imagery

The scene opens to the midnight skyline of a neon city while Slick Sax’s saxophone blows like a whirling cool breeze through the balmy summer air, muting the buzzing fluorescent signs that clamor for attention. All the while, Nicole Elizabeth’s breathy vocals murmur and soar above the four-to-the-floor piano-driven beat on the stunning new feel-good single release from Artem Cithara, entitled “Sunshine”. The track is an appropriate composition from a mysterious artist, songwriter and producer whose only goal is to be taken seriously–not only as an EDM icon, but in the context of finer arts. While much of the electronic music

Sarantos: “Why Ask Why” – uniformly excellent throughout

In a sense, Sarantos is as much a realist as he is a romantic; his best songs are about fearing the worst, hoping for the best, and getting lucky sometimes. His best songs are also about three or four minutes long and loaded with licks and melodies befitting of a great singer-songwriter reared on the musical legends of our time. All of those influences coalesce on “Why Ask Why”, a tight, spirited rock track.  Purely as sound, this track unquestionably succeeds; though AOR is basically a primary color of modern pop at this point, Sarantos’ vocals and lyrical tics are

Boy in the Rain: “Wave” – a fine assemblage of piano mastery

Boy in the Rain is a composer and solo artist. His style draws heavily from classical and romantic periods, stemming from the traditional piano studies of his youth, but incorporates modern styles into a unique contemporary fashion.  His latest album, “Wave,” is a collection of original piano solos. The piano has a chief interest of exploration for many composers. Through the history of music we can even certify the following: static discoveries and dynamic ones. Bartok, for example, in many of his solo piano pieces is always certain when to use an incomplete chord, which register and which inversion to

DasMeter: “Evolution” – an uncanny knack for evoking pensive nostalgia in the present

Real-life brothers Darren (Keyboard, Drums) and Michael (Guitar, Vocals) are an American music duo project that goes by the name of DasMeter. Their debut electro-hardcore single “Mercury” was released in late May of 2015.  Now in 2017 DasMeter unleashes their brand new 13-track body of work entitled “Evolution”. Whenever you hear the words: “I choose you to be my partner in life. I promise you my unconditional love, my fullest devotion and tender care,” or “I promise to be faithful and to love, honor and cherish you all the days of our lives…”, beware, as promises like these, made by mere fallible mortals like ourselves are bound  to be broken.

Recent stats claim that over half of all marriages in the United States – a staggering 53% – end in divorce! So more than one in two marriages, where the above words are pledged, are proclaiming promises that will not be kept.

“Evolution” is born out of the failing of those pledges, as DasMeter compose the accompanying soundtrack that takes us through marriage, separation, and divorce. Up until now, the structural decisions, the subtle production touches, and the synth tones that DasMeter produce have always gone straight to the subconscious, that evokes feelings more than thoughts.

And on “Evolution”, the feeling in question seems to be a dim, wriggling, all-pervading anxiety and delusion, sprinkled with perceptible rays of hope.

They’ve made a really great soundtrack album for the moments of your day where you’re stressing about things of the heart and difficult personal-life decisions. They’ve made a great thematically uncomfortable – yet musically comforting ambiance album, one that sticks with you through all your discomforting moments.

DasMeter let you know that you are not alone in these saddening plights. Moreover, the replay-ability of this album pairs amazingly with late nights of work, road trips, a long gaze out of rain licked windows, a meditative nap…just about everything.

The uncanny knack the duo has for evoking pensive nostalgia in the present moment is readily available on this album, which will make you ponder and deliberate. The play of memory and music preoccupies most musicians, but few translate it into instrumental music as well as DasMeter do.

From the moment “twenty years” kicks in, you’ll begin to feel the narrative though the layered instrumentation.  It’s very atmospheric in places but rises to perfect IDM on upbeat back to back tracks, such as, “the wall”, “fighting for you” and “losing hope”.

There are no bad songs to be found here, even if some of them might take a while to sink in. It may not overtly hold mainstream appeal, but genre fans will absolutely adore this album. My favorites for now tend to be the melodic “on my knees”, the twisting rhythms of “I cared about you” and the brilliant synth sounds on “silver linings”.

However their aural magic is as evocative as ever on all of these tracks, and with their alchemical skills, they could well invent any necessary musical element they desire. In a music environment where most bands take great pains to be connected to their fans, DasMeter have created an environment which eludes tormented hyped-up commercial schemes for anyone interested in their music.

Why? Because the fabric of their music is creating emotional, profound scenarios that tease the mind as much as they satisfy it. The public who love this music will naturally be drawn towards it on its intrinsic merits alone, resulting in fans with a unique reverence for not only DasMeter’s music but their intelligent approach to making and diffusing it.
