The Frost: “Keep It Real” – There’s a classiness to this!

The Frost is a multi-genre group comprised of Leah Evans (Vocals) and Christian Gratz (Guitar, Piano). Located in Pennsylvania, their brand new single “Keep It Real” was released on December 7.  The duo emerge at a time when the ranks of sophisticated pop contenders seemed to have disappeared on a daily basis. Simultaneously chic and very creative, they thrive on the considerable charm of lead singer Evans, with her smooth chocolate voice, the instrumental talents of Gratz, as well as the pair’s impressive abilities as a songwriting unit. An absolute stand-out aspect of the new song is the way it’s

Forest Robots: “Timberline and Mountain Crest” – Inspired by natural landscapes

Let’s start of by saying that Fran Dominguez aka Forest Robots is a master at producing chilled out electronic music with heavy beats, and lots of orchestral instrumentation thrown in the mix. To call it electronic music almost seems unfair, as it implies this is music made by machines. Yes, I realize he is called Forest Robots, but this could not be further from the truth, as Dominguez’s music is pumping with life and human emotion. His latest album “Timberline and Mountain Crest” showcases 10 tracks of stunning depth, the kind of album you just throw the headphones on, turn

Edward St. Martin: “Lullaby” – blur the lines between savvy pop stylings and hard hitting kinetic soundscaping

Hailing from San Diego, Edward St. Martin has a background in film composition and classical music. His most recent single is “Lullaby”. Expectations met, superseded and immediately I hit replay. This track is going round again and I’m not the only one within ear shot of my stereo who is pleased about it. The easy laid back crossover Pop/EDM groove take is not unexpected, as I had already read that St. Martin was one for mellow tones combined with pop and soul vibes. But this track has another key element which makes a record of this nature standout. Intelligence. This

Katiah One: “Tail Spin” – an evolving, audacious artist

Soon releasing debut first EP “A Whole Lotta Water Works”, Katiah One is an artist raised on the Upper West Side of New York City. His mission is changing the common perception of the average rapper. Katiah draws inspiration from many genres including R&B and Rock, while his favorite artists include Freddy Mercury, Sam Cooke and Issac Brock.  On his latest single “Tail Spin”, taken off the aforementioned EP, Katiah deals with the deep issues of existentialism, or simply put, the meaning of a human being’s existence. Sure his talking ‘black’ talk, but you can’t go there without understanding the

Alisa Chirco: “Give Me More” – bench marked with confidence!

Alisa Chirco sure isn’t shy about revealing what’s on her mind, on her brand new single “Give Me More”, the follow up to her almost gothic-like pop ballad “Box”. Alisa sounds passionate, wanting and determined, in a driven rock song that is an anthem for empowered women. Her music here is very strong, has meaning, and is legit. The track shows that she is learning to emote in a more visceral and arguably more demonstrative way. Alisa has now escalated to being a rock chic with an attitude and bold open-confessional lyrics. A sensible direction for any reinvention is maturity, and

Roger Cole & Paul Barrere: “Old Folks Boogie Redeux” – true to their sound!

“Ya know that you’re over the hill, when your mind makes a promise that your body can’t fill!”, this is the line that inspired Paul Barrere to write the original version of the “Old Folks Boogie”, which would subsequently feature on the 1977 Little Feat record “Time Loves a Hero”. The citation came from a line Paul’s dad – an actor at the time – picked up at a vaudeville theater. He would often sing it around the house, so eventually Paul got hooked turned it into a song. For some time, Paul’s partner over at Better Daze Records, Roger

Pop singer, Livetronica drummer, producer and songwriter, Glorious, is a graduate of Berklee College of Music, who has been making music since she started playing drums at the age of three. Named after her grandmother Glorious Cooper, Glorious recently unveiled her single “Move”. In an increasingly crowded field of urban pop artists, you may be wondering what makes Glorious worth your time. To be sure, she boasts a lot of the qualities that her peers also bring to the table. Her song is outlined with an exquisite beat, her vocals are mesmerizing, and her persona appears spectacularly captivating. Without close

Ferentz and The Felons: “Hudson County” – an engaging and gripping performance

Wolvo: “Nothin Right” ft. DAYVID – towards the pop realm of charting electronica

“Nothin Right” by Wolvo is a massive pop dance banger with singer DAYVID on vocals. The lyrics as well as the melodic voice have quite an eclectic effect against the backdrop of the growling synths. DAYVID sings like an instrument, and adds an extra dimension to the heavy percussion and exotic tinkling keys. There’s romance, evocativeness, space, and longing. You can hear it as DAYVID sings “Ain’t nothing right without you” in the chorus section. It’s the one line that’s clearly repeated in the song to create a hook-like attraction.

Wolvo here, is stepping between the vastly popular tropical house music sounds, and some dupstep influences while heading headlong towards the pop realm of charting electronica, albeit in a unique way. In a genre that’s cluttered with so many similar dance numbers and techno tunes, Wolvo will be capturing momentum through his dynamic range of pop groove vibes on this track. “Nothin Right” will take listeners on a euphoric and melodic journey in under four minutes.

Instrumentally speaking, for the majority of the track Wolvo keeps it flowing with intense percussion and an insistent bass line.  His arrangement never stops in any one place, as it continually evolves. The vocals then connect the listener into the minds of so many people who miss someone in their lives.

The more this song is listened to, the more it will intoxicate the listener.  Notwithstanding its high percussive and rhythmic intensity, “Nothin Right” uncannily also has an atmosphere of relaxation which is felt in the undercurrents of the song.

There can be no denying of course that besides Wolvo’s gorgeously layered production, this is a very vocal-focused song. As is most of the electronica that attempts to enter the mainstream pop arena, for all the brilliant electronic arranging, if the vocals don’t hook the masses of average radio listeners, the song has no chance. Hence all producers are usually running around trying to find the best vocal talent they can to their songs the lustra they think it deserves.

Many producers opt for the coy female vocals, which for some reason is easier on the ears of radio listeners. To equal the impact from a male vocal viewpoint, you need a voice that is totally outstanding. Luckily Wolvo found it in DAYVID, to complete his winning electro-pop formula.
