In the world of Christian hip hop, there are many rising stars, T.L Thorne is one of those underground artists

In the world of Christian hip hop, there are many rising stars, T.L Thorne is one of those underground artists, who in his own little way is rewriting the rule-book on God-fearing emcees’ relationship with the secular music game and is ready to blaze a path to widespread acceptance and cultural influence. Sandwiched between streetwise awareness, social consciousness, and worshiping God, T.L Thorne is confident, cocksure and comfortable in his lane. With that said, T.L Thorne’s delivery, flow, lyricism and beat selection are very much on point. He continually raises the bar with each and every release, which is full

OFFICIAL VIDEO: Kevin Toqe – “Shadows” was inspired by Psalm 91

Filmed and performed at 25th Street Recording (Oakland, CA), this video mixes the original electronic elements from the original “Shadows” radio version with live, acoustic instruments for a more organic feel.  “Shadows” by Kevin Toqe,  was inspired by Psalm 91, the state of being found in a safe place where God does the protecting instead of my own self-protection, and I learn a place of contentment in Him. Then, if right now seems like a “mountain” or a “valley” time of life, the real constant becomes simply the protective, consistent, and overshadowing love of God. Finding this kind of

Corlioni: “Destiny” has a genuinely refreshing effect!

In case you’re not down with the nomenclature being thrown around the EDM community currently, on his latest track, “Destiny”, electronic producer Corlioni, comfortably slides into the trend-setting genre called ‘Tropical house’. Though, it would be correct to say that the masked British producer is not really confined to that specific genre at all. Tropical house is a more relaxing yet uplifting form inside the EDM craze, a response to the grimy, dark sounds of the dubstep craze which has been losing steam for the last several years. Rather than deep bass growls that sound like a broken inkjet printer, you’ll find sounds more smooth and sweet – thoroughly happy, soothing, feel-good stuff.

For this reason, I have fallen in love with “Destiny” over the last week. When it comes on, it’s like a palette cleanser; it has a genuinely refreshing effect between louder, more aggressive music at the club. And when consumed in a headphone sitting at home, it has the same effect as a cool jug of water. Considering the scorching summer ahead, that’s an extremely desired effect.

Making good music is much like baking a cake. You can make it as spectacular and as sweet as you like with all the decorations currently at hand. But to make it edible and thoroughly digestible you need quality basic ingredients.

Corlioni obviously understands this concept perfectly and wasted no time in gathering all the right elements to make this track the summer showstopper it currently is heading to be – behind the mixing boards is none other than Miami’s Austin Leeds, who has worked with Avicii and Paul Van Dyk.

But the real surprise comes in the lead vocalist, or rather the chosen songstress to carry “Destiny’s” all-important melody line – a make or break element in this specific genre. Surprisingly Corlioni’s choice fell upon the UK-based singer, Breeze Redwine.

The surprise does not come from Breeze’s captivating vocal interpretation however, but rather her age – that smooth, melodic and suggestive voice, actually belongs to a talented 14 year-old singer-songwriter. And most surprising of all is how Breeze handled the song with such control and constraint, which could so easily have become just another cheesy pop anthem in less sensitive hands.

Of course with all the proper ingredients thrown into the mixing bowl, you still need a great core recipe and the hands of an able creator to bring the best out of the blend. And Corlioni forges all of his craftsmanship in “Destiny”, bringing forth a song that can confidently hold its own within a fiercely competitive EDM market.

The beat, the vocals, the arrangement and the instrumentation are all composed in a way that creates a truly magical moment. The superlative production does the rest! You can listen to the track on Spotify, and follow Corlioni on FacebookTwitter & Instagram.
