Moorhouse: “I Love You to the Moon and Back” ft. The Cellophane Heart – brings a new slant to the genre

Irish DJ and producer Moorhouse has dedicated the song, “I Love You to the Moon and Back”, to his daughter, Abbie. It speaks about their relationship and what the future holds. Canadian artist, The Cellophane Heart, provided the vocals for the track, and the song was produced in Moorhouse’s home studio in Waterford, Ireland. The track offers a lively, upbeat 90s dance pop sound mixed with current top 40 influences from Baz Luhrmann and N-Trance. This track means a lot. And there is a reason for that. Sure, it may be electronic dance music, but it’s…different. EDM music is becoming

Ken Eagle and Michele Akers discovered each other’s musical abilities after meeting at a dance in May 2014 and formed a duo in late October of the same year.

KonQuestNow: “NOP (No One’s Perfect)” ft. STP & J.Morgan – an assemblage of uncanny language

The preconceived notions of what a KonQuestNow (VerseBorn & Wreck The Rebel) track is going to be like are plentiful well before you even press play. This has been a boon to their career, in what has become a viral habit of either hating or loving something based almost solely on your own personal internet culture and what your daily feed prompts you to feel about a certain subject. The collective’s name has become synonymous with great lyrics, superb beats, and originality. On their latest track “NOP (No One’s Perfect)”,  produced by Wreck The Rebel, featuring  STP & J.Morgan,  KonQuestNow

Stori Brooks: “Parachutes” – a potential for greatness

Stori Brooks has been a lot of things in her career: producer, poet, conflicted rapper, scenic storyteller. While her versatility keeps her afloat, it’s tough to get a bead on exactly who Brooks is and what she stands for—is she the conscious backpacker or the straight-talking street girl? She embodies the urban alternative, and she’s working on an album, to be entitled, “EVERYTHING IS GR8”, that offers her full narrative. The first single, “Parachutes”, taken off the upcoming album offers insight into her essence, finding the rapper at her most reflective. Maybe she’s assessing her current status and how she

Samantha Bouquin: “Contemplations on Solitude and Strings” – highly expressive

Connoisseurs of experimental or avant-garde chamber music may already know of Samantha Bouquin’s inventive and entrancing sounds. This is music of great integrity, startling vitality, and striking originality, yet it is virtually unknown outside the cult following that has appreciated these ingenious compositions. A cross between homespun classical populism and the sophisticated experimentation of the avant-garde, Bouquin’s music follows in the iconoclastic tradition of forward thinking composers, but with its own frank expression, exuberance, and wayward charm; yet it is also accessible to the casual listener in the directness of its material and the clarity of its techniques, no matter

Franco Esteve: “The Wait” – the canvas of our consciousness

Let me start by saying I really enjoy Franco Esteve’s work. He is a master at using music to create colors and emotions for the soundtracks he has scored. He’s produced and directed commercials and music videos, but is best known for his work with The Doll Chronicles series of short films, particularly Consequence, The Doll Chronicles, which he produced and directed. He also composed the music for the series, for which he’s received accolades. Though his work is more focused on scoring for films Franco Esteve is not tied down to any one genre or style, and you might find him listening to Nine Inch Nails, Beethoven, Snoop Dogg, Led Zeppelin and John Barry to She Wants Revenge.

Franco Esteve

Born in the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico, Franco Esteve has had a multicultural upbringing throughout the United States and Europe. From an early age he developed talents in music and piano, as well as acting, later moving towards other areas such production, photography, design, and film. In between his more formal commitments Franco finds time to compose pieces of music which interpret specific thoughts and experiences that intrigue his intellect or afflict his emotions.

Towards the end of 2016 he released the critically acclaimed musical composition, “Quicksand” which reflected the ups and downs we experience in everyday life. Where we find ourselves sinking deeper and deeper, the more we struggle. Now Franco Esteve has worked on a new theme that has plagued his mind – Insomnia. “The Wait” is a classical style piece of music that reflects waiting and anticipation. “It was written out of insomnia and the constant incapacity to sleep,” says Esteve. “It’s something I have personally struggled with throughout my life, and I admit a lot of my ideas flow from those hours fighting with it.”

There has never been a time when human beings enjoyed waiting. Perhaps there was a time when we had a much greater capacity to wait, but that doesn’t mean that waiting was ever a positive experience. The problem, or reality, is that life requires a lot of waiting. And waiting brings anxiety. At the same time though anything that requires growth, also requires waiting. This principle applies especially to the soul. Inner transformation, development, growth, integration, consciousness, and creativity take time. We need to wait for all of that to eventually happen.

Waiting is the canvas of our consciousness. Franco Esteve captures that consciousness as it is working, contemplating, mixing the hues and tones of our mood and attitude with time ticking away, and incarnated here by the pizzicato playing of the violin. The horns, violins and cellos all cover our insides with strokes of hope and despair, sketching the unknown, at once with dark apprehension, and then coloring it with anticipation.

Our souls are bared as we wait, and what it shows depend on what it is carrying within itself – what it reflects upon, connects with, questions, contemplates, imagines, feels, and loves, or hates. Franco Esteve’s “The Wait” perfectly interprets all these palpable anxieties of waiting. Esteve has been a storyteller throughout his career and he certainly displays that extraordinary quality with this great piece of music.
