Stori Brooks: “Parachutes” – a potential for greatness

Stori Brooks has been a lot of things in her career: producer, poet, conflicted rapper, scenic storyteller. While her versatility keeps her afloat, it’s tough to get a bead on exactly who Brooks is and what she stands for—is she the conscious backpacker or the straight-talking street girl? She embodies the urban alternative, and she’s working on an album, to be entitled, “EVERYTHING IS GR8”, that offers her full narrative. The first single, “Parachutes”, taken off the upcoming album offers insight into her essence, finding the rapper at her most reflective. Maybe she’s assessing her current status and how she

Samantha Bouquin: “Contemplations on Solitude and Strings” – highly expressive

Connoisseurs of experimental or avant-garde chamber music may already know of Samantha Bouquin’s inventive and entrancing sounds. This is music of great integrity, startling vitality, and striking originality, yet it is virtually unknown outside the cult following that has appreciated these ingenious compositions. A cross between homespun classical populism and the sophisticated experimentation of the avant-garde, Bouquin’s music follows in the iconoclastic tradition of forward thinking composers, but with its own frank expression, exuberance, and wayward charm; yet it is also accessible to the casual listener in the directness of its material and the clarity of its techniques, no matter

Souleye: “Snow Angel” ft. Alanis Morrisette – becoming a favorite amongst hip-hop heads

The “modern day hip hop warrior” Souleye, is getting set to release his next full-length album “Wild Man” in mid-spring, and has freshly dropped the second single from the upcoming collection, entitled “Snow Angel” featuring Alanis Morrisette, which also has a supporting video. The track is a follow-up to the previous single release, “Follow Your Heart”. On the new track, produced by Crush Effect, Souleye explores a relationship that continues to tortuously twist and turn as each partner attempts to take a break from the other –only to return.

“When I first met Souleye, I was a fan. I was captivated by his stream of consciousness brilliance, bravery, imagery and his ability to articulate in such generous and prolific ways. His music touched me on multiple levels,” says Alanis Morissette. “Souleye has a voice like no other and I was a fan who had the great fortune of winning his heart.”

As with any Souleye release, this message of realistic optimism rings loud and clear, thanks to the sonic clarity of this accredited hip-hop artist. Souleye’s easily decipherable flow and ‘why-didn’t-I-think-of-that’ lines are almost defiant in their simplicity then made even more accessible by Crush Effect production. Increasingly interested in warmth rather than the frigidity usually found in electronics, the production embraces some of the most inviting elements of glitch and the like, in this arrangement. Mixing synth stabs with heavily effected choral harmonies and a dry thumping beat.

The result is a swirling, hard-hitting electronic soundscape that provides a canvas in motion for Alanis Morissette to color on. So when she breaks into the bridge with, “You’re my Snow Angel, you spread open wide as we go back and forth,” the kaleidoscope effect of her voice is nothing short of mesmerizing. Her quality stamp put’s high expectations on the track, which is however brilliantly fulfilled by Souleye.

Never intimidated or even slightly in awe of his partner’s artistic greatness, Souleye rolls out his distinctive flow: “And when it all goes down / Will you stick around / Would you stay the night / Would you give your life / Does it even really mater / If your not will to fight / It’s all about repair this I swear / Stand my ground for my family / Work so hard that I can’t be beat / Never meet defeat / Cause if its not win-win / Then I won’t compete”

Souleye has been bubbling beneath the surface for years now, creating a buzz on music blogs and forging his own lane in the underground scene. Famous for his lightning fast lyrics and impeccably smooth delivery, Souleye has become a favorite amongst hip-hop heads. Now with the help of his talent and warrior’s will, he is starting to finally cross the underground threshold and thrust himself into the limelight.

“Snow Angel” featuring Alanis Morrisette is yet another track that proves irrefutably that Souleye is worthy of fame and reverence from the hip-hop community.  It remains to be seen if that’s really what this “modern day hip hop warrior’s” ambition is.

More About Souleye: Souleye’s musical journey began when he was a teenager in rural Massachusetts, freestyling around a camp fire to entertain his friends. Blending traditional elements of hip-hop, EDM and numerous other styles; Souleye’s music crosses the boundaries of genre, defies convention and inspires listeners with uplifting lyrics coupled with both traditional and unusual hip-hop beats and samples.
