Hei$enberg – “Text Me” employs a head-bopping flow with a throwback flair

DEEPSYSTEM – “Anda Linda” – a zesty groove and a humid atmosphere!

DEEPSYSTEM, Europe’s underground ambassador of reggaeton and Latin trap — has remade the future of Spanish-language hip-hop in his image. If there is a revolution to be had in the new crossover market, this artist has done so by sticking to his guns, and mining reggaeton’s sonic riches for dancefloor gold. Rather than offer audiences lyrical signposts to what he’s thinking, DEEPSYSTEM makes you come to him, with a shared sense of explosive, downright sensual musicality and a hypnotically propulsive rhythm. Few others could do as much, in the European region. Furthermore, the man is consistent, putting out track after

Neave Zaria’s ‘Never The Same’ Is Evocative Of The Golden Era Of Jazz & Blues

Neave Zaria’s latest track ‘Never The Same’ is a soft yet impassioned exploration of our deepest infatuations and frustrations. The composition is steady but energetic, and the jazz spirit comes in hot from the get-go. Zaria’s voice bears a strong resemblance to that of the greatest blues singers of all time: Etta James and Aretha Franklin. The most modern comparisons would be to Adele and Norah Jones, but even then there’s a striking vulnerability in Zaria’s vocals that makes her stand apart. It helps that the English singer is just nineteen, but she demonstrates a superb ability at striking the

Sienná: “Q.o.S” is bristling with vital, artistic compositions!

Sienná, a native from Kyoto, Japan, living in Oslo, Norway, who pursues her vast musical talents for songwriting, musical production, DJing, and more, announced the release of her latest electronica album, “Q.o.S”. Recognized for her distinguishably unique sound, consisting of electronic bases, avant-garde, house, jazz, traditional Japanese, contemporary Japanese, and experimental, Sienná’s latest musical creation contains ten tracks embodying slow, groovy elements with instruments and vocals lofted over the top. All songs and texts written, performed and composed by Sienná except “Six Sense”, which has melody and texts from a Japanese traditional folk song called “Rokucho”.

Sienná

I have followed Sienná, since 2013, and she has a unique talent to quickly put me under her spell of smooth beats and sonic experimentation. The lady is truly gifted in her ability to compose unique, fluid, and complete tracks that are far less abstract than they sound like at first listen.

The vast chasm that once separated accessibility from experimental electronic sounds in her music has all but vanished on “Q.o.S”. Here Sienná, has reached a place where even her most languid and effusive sounds and samples are easy digestible by the ear. Some tracks may be powerfully beat propelled and instantly engaging to both the ear and body, such as “Worlds Citizens”, “Quintessence”, “Sixth Sense” and “Eastern Play”.

While on the end of the spectrum, introspective and ruminative musical pieces like “Yes”, “Iwashimizu (石清水)”, “Kasuga (春日)” and the stunning vocal track, “PM”, will engage your mind and soul. This eclectic performer and producer, has built her career on a different type of accessibility.

Her songs are not easy to fall into like EDM booby traps, but they are like quicksand slowly and steadily engulfing listeners, before sucking each one into Sienná’s all-embracing world. Her latest release is an oasis of mind, body and soul relieving pleasures, offered as a refuge from the fusillade of trap and pop crossover beats sweeping through electronic music.

What Sienná has done with her avant-garde electronic confections is nothing short of innovative and intentionally exotic, meshing together dreamy downtempo soundscapes and rhythmic beats into distinctive forms that can be called ‘atmospheric electronic’.

It culminates into pulsating sequences that make for immersive headphone music. A deliberate mind trip meant to listen to and nod to in pleasure and sheer satisfaction. “Q.o.S” stands out clearly in the electronic panorama, bristling with vital, artistic compositions that feel like all colors of paint whipped, splattered and dripped across a gigantic canvas.

Sienná, doesn’t cease to find ways of delivering this blossoming beauty, as her songs glisten and puzzle all at the same time. What comes away from her latest release is that she has finally found herself from another musical perspective.

Underneath that creative brilliance and flair is a whole cluster of songs and sonic pleasures that doesn’t hide behind layers of hard-to-understand experimental abstraction, breaking free, “Q.o.S” shows off its true relatable colors without compromising Sienná’s intrinsic artistic intentions.
