NazB: “When We Were Young” boasts an impeccable flow

As a child growing up in Nigeria, NazB was surrounded by the music of his native West African homeland. With members of his immediate and extended family playing instruments and singing, music was a part of his upbringing. His persistence and perseverance eventually gained him the nickname Nazodobas, which eventually evolved into NazB and became his rapper alias. Now based in Zurich, Switzerland, NazB has been performing, recording and releasing hit songs, almost at will, since his debut album “Money In Da Game”, dropped in 2006. His brand of music blends hard-hitting urban beats, funky bass driven rhythms, and African

RAVENSCROFT- “STAND UP” Video is the sound of a band inspired

Ralph Buso (Vocals), Brett Gorke (Guitars), Devin Baker (Bass), Pat Magrath (Drums), collectively known as RAVENSCROFT, are working on their most unique, creative, exploratory, and bone-crushing recording they have ever produced. It’s a progressive work of metal and rock art, delving deep into the nature of their craft.

Exit 22 Music: “Last Goodbye” – one of the finest musical acts in the pop-rock underground

It seems almost impossible that an artist that has been around this long – 20 years in Chris Calamera’s case, can keep making records that stand up among the best that he has ever done. Let’s be clear: “Last Goodbye” is a great song. It’s poppy, with a big melody and an insistent rock rhythm, and it’s catchy as hell. Sounds like authentic Exit 22 Music to me. This is pure Calamera from his pop-rock songwriting style standpoint, and pure Exit 22 Music, considering the breathtaking vocals and high production-value quotient. The perfect, power-pop formula. Exit 22 Music has been keeping

Lake of the Lion embodies embody emotive sounds and textures

Lake of the Lion is the brand name and moniker for Luxembourg music composer and producer, Daniel Kohnen, who is steadily building up his catalog and increasing his fan-base with regular new releases. In recent years, ambient instrumental and soundtrack scores have been following a certain trend. Composers seem to have this motif of creating overblown pieces with harsh lead instruments blasting out from the blue and background strings creating suspense with their melodies. Sure it was fun for a while, but within that little span of time listeners were just begging for it to stop because composers had this

Natalie Jean and Levi Moore: “The Letting Go” speaks the language of the ordinary person

A good duet, in our modern age, is a rare thing. There are plenty of features, guest verses and co-writes, and the cameo drop-in is a dime a dozen. The number of genuine duets, where vocalists share verses and tell a story together in the space of a song, is very small. If your optimism fails you, as you wonder whether there are enough great acts to keep hit radio stocked with worthy pop music duets, it’s reassuring to find that Natalie Jean and Levi Moore have a first-rate single to carry us through the next few months, all by itself. The

MAKI: ‘Waking Up With The World On Fire’ – truly majestic — grandiose, slowly unfolding, and extremely cinematic

The world is a fragmented place, with fear and hate giving rise to isolationist movements around the globe and huge portions of the population turning inward rather than outward towards each other. As such waves of bigotry spread like wildfire, the music scene becomes extremely important, not just because it means more great music, but because it connects us all together on a wavelength that hits the human heart, soul and mind even harder, faster and deeper than anger can. A creative constant in the field of communicative contemporary Instrumental music, is MAKI who focuses his ample talents on a

3 Phase – ready for genre domination!

The names Chirag Shah, Prasham Deliwala and Melvin Saldana may in themselves not ring a familiar bell in your ear right now. Probably, neither will the moniker ‘3 Phase’, nor their 6 track self-titled EP. It’s logical, it’s the law of the industry’s hype machine – cast a light on the big label clones, and leave the independent creatives in the shadows. Luckily the internet has a different set of rules.  On hearing the 3 Phase EP, the lofty ambition, the focus and dedication of this creative collective of producers, songwriters and vocal talent, makes sense – its six tracks

Sy: “Get Out Of My Dreams” – grab this R&B and Soul extravaganza

The singer, songwriter and author, Sy, releases a brand new single produced by Rueben Wood. The track “Get Out Of My Dreams” is the first single release written by the artist in 2018, since writing two self-help books, “A Swan Among Ducks” and “Saying Yes to (No): Learning the Power of (No) before the end of 2017. This track soulfully captures the spirit and feel of the emotional journey of grown womanhood. It is juicy, dynamic, soulful, gorgeous, and it is nourishment for the soul…and mind, as it examines the intricacies of a relationship built on want and lust. As

IJK: “Johnny & June” – sounds invigorated!

Alternative rock artist Imad Jack Karam, known by his initials and stage name IJK, is a Dubai-based, Lebanese singer-songwriter, who has released critically acclaimed songs and recorded with internationally known music producers in prestigious London studios. Both his singles “Space Odyssey” and “Dancing Shadows” garnered a positive reception from fans and critics alike.

So, how does this new offering cope? Very well, in truth. “Johnny &

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.
