D-Witt flexes the pen of a budding cinematic storyteller

I recently heard about an artist called D-Witt from Rockford, IL.  Illinois is the home of some prestigious sons who have left unforgettable marks on hip-hop’s history. I’m expecting an unfiltered rebel who is unafraid to bare his soul and burn down buildings. A fearless heart is a quality that makes fearless art, and I hope that’s exactly what D-Witt has arrived to present us.  So I press play on the first track called “Enemy”. The sound is open and strong-willed. There’s no doubting that D-Witt has something to say. The amount of care that goes into his lyricism stamps

Mortinus – “Star Chariot (Yellow Odyssey)” and “Oceania” – gently beatific music

As the months pass slowly into years, it becomes increasingly plain to all concerned that Danish electronic music producer, Mortinus is taking his craft very seriously. He has been extraordinarily prolific and has maintained an enviable level of quality in his releases. When approaching his two singles “Star Chariot (Yellow Odyssey)” and “Oceania” the question that arises is how will Mortinus sound fare in the altered musical terrain of 2020? Well the two new singles, are fine examples of some of the best ambient, chillout, downtempo and cinematic instrumental music being made today. Mortinus’ sound is alive and well, and his

Stiff Lauren – “Faith In Me” demands the spotlight!

Fearless and uncompromising, Stiff Lauren is back to deliver a triumphant track about having faith in yourself no matter what. Stiff Lauren is a hip-hop artist who is no stranger to speaking what’s on his mind. Since he hit the scene, he’s never been one to hold his tongue or been one to fear throwing the first punch. Whether or not you’ve followed Stiff from the beginning, one thing has been apparent through the highs and the lows: he’s talented and confident – his latest single “Faith In Me” is a perfect example of that. Stiff Lauren once again takes

Canadian born Latin pop recording artist Nancy Diaz has been navigating her way through the Canadian music scene since 2011 with her pop single “Summer Addiction” along with official music video.

Cyrus R.O. – “Bones” is still a skillfully crafted song

I think I expected this music to be sterile and methodical. However, to my surprise, Cyrus R.O.’s new single “Bones” from his upcoming debut album “Deconvolution” is blazingly irradiated like bundle of energy that expertly marries the organic and synthetic. Underneath it all, a darker lyrical narrative dealing with “a character struggling with their gender identity, and the fear of social turmoil that comes with that.” Everything just grooves so well together; it’s a blend of sounds that I haven’t heard done this well from any progressive, jazz, or electronic artist in quite some time. It’s a masterful melding of electronic machinery with

Temperature Falls Release The Video For Their Latest Single “1-2-3”

The sound and atmosphere of Temperature Falls is built around somewhat gritty, blended organic-electronic sounding tracks that hearken the listener back to earlier times. Their latest track, ‘1-2-3’, is a seductive track that pulls the listener in with an eerie melody, sultry vocals and an ethereal reverberating atmosphere. Mixed beautifully, this is the perfect example of what to expect from this indie trip-hop/alternative rock duo from Oslo, Norway, made up of vocalist/lyricist Camilla, and multi-instrumentalist Ian J. Ward. ‘1-2-3’ is a gorgeous, melancholic song that is heart wrenchingly beautiful. Temperature Falls is one of those bands that are absolutely necessary

The Big Mackoofy: “GOD IS A MAKE BELIEVE FRIEND FOR GROWN UPS” – an expanding musical universe

“GOD IS A MAKE BELIEVE FRIEND FOR GROWN UPS” by the The Big Mackoofy, requires at least twelve different reviewers, or at the very worse, twelve different listening sessions on different days by one reviewer.  Two things are not to be discussed when listening to this album – genres and cohesiveness – unless you want to descend into a never-ending spiral of impossible explanation.  The Big Mackoofy don’t play any one genre, they are unto themselves a genre. One song does not cohesively follow another like a dot by dot painting, The Big Mackoofy represent an expansion of sound and color. “GOD IS A MAKE BELIEVE FRIEND FOR GROWN UPS” is the musical equivalent of the universe’s big bang theory.

The Big Bang theory is an effort to explain what happened at the very beginning of our universe. Discoveries in astronomy and physics have shown beyond a reasonable doubt that our universe did in fact have a beginning. Prior to that moment there was nothing; during and after that moment there was something: our universe.

The big bang theory is an effort to explain what happened during and after that moment. In the case of The Big Mackoofy, prior to the release of “GOD IS A MAKE BELIEVE FRIEND FOR GROWN UPS” there was nothing like this type of music made by one single band; during and after that moment there is something: universal music!

Quite simply The Big Mackoofy, take the entire band’s influencing styles, genres and sub-genres, and fling them through a 3-man blending machine that go by the names of Jeff Lucas, Anthony Joseph and Eddie Blindell. The result is 12 tracks of several hundred billion sounds that go from Soul to Reggae, Ska, Hiphop and Rock to Funk and anything else they can muster – in an album soaring through the musical cosmos, inside of an expanding musical universe that began as an infinitesimal singularity and which appeared out of somewhere in London for reasons still unknown.

Any discussion of the Big Bang theory and this album title, would be incomplete without asking the question, what about God? This is an area where science and theology meet. Creation was a supernatural event. That is, it took place outside of the natural realm.

This fact begs the question: is there anything else which exists outside of the natural realm? Specifically, is there a master Architect out there? We won’t attempt to answer that question, but what if…“GOD IS A MAKE BELIEVE FRIEND FOR GROWN UPS”?

I’m not sure who does what on this album, but you’ll hear singing, rapping and a whole lot of grooving going on. Because if there is one constant or ‘cohesive’ factor running through this album, its groove! From the smooth melodic groove of “Walk Away (feat. Ferisha)”, or the bass heavy groove of “Bring Back The Lovers”. Maybe even the soul-infested funk groove of “Super Wanger”, or the reggae groove of “YES I S”,  the rap groove of “Indian Dub”, and probably the grooviest track of all, “Lady of The Night”.

I could go on and on, but the groove is endless on this album, as is the musical creativity shown on each track. The fact is, The Big Mackoofy is one of the most forward-looking bands of the modern era and arguably, the first genuinely, all-out cosmic music band…with or without God!
