Love Ghost – “Pillz (The Sky is Falling)” will now appeal to a much wider audience

It’s always great to see a band evolve and branch out in new directions. What is even better is to see them succeed at this difficult endeavor. With their latest single –  “Pillz (The Sky is Falling)”, we see L.A. based alternative rock band Love Ghost continue on the path of evolution into much more than a rock band . They incorporate trap beats, rock grit and rap verses, to really diversify their sound on this recording. It’s really impressive to hear this sonic distinctiveness which demonstrates this band’s talent, and their fingers on the beating pulse of modern trends. I

Downtown Mystic – ‘3-Way Heartbreak’ – more than just a nostalgic listening experience!

One of the things Downtown Mystic notoriously excel at is masking emotional lyrics with upbeat, driving-with-the-windows-rolled-down kind of melodies. Their double-side single, ‘3-Way Heartbreak’, which also includes the track ‘Same Old Lover’, recorded in 1983, has all that and more. While for most other contemporary bands, it’s hard to recapture the real magic of rock n’ roll, for Robert Allen and his crew, this comes easy. They grew up during rock’s golden era, hence Downtown Mystic’s music lives up to the genre’s legacy, rather than just riding on its coattails. The ‘3-Way Heartbreak’ single, on the Sha-La Music, Inc. catalog,

Three60 and Stoley1st: “Tipsy Master_1” forges excellent deliveries

“Tipsy Master_1” is the third single off of the upcoming mixtape “Untold Storyz”. This is a collaboration project with Three60 and Stoley1st who are also two thirds of the founding team that initiated ABC (All Bout Cash) Ent. The project is loaded with features including ClassicGenius, and mixing and mastering done by head engineer @atgrox and as well as their lead artist @11vox11 on a track. Three60 was signed to an independent deal in 2011 and his music has made it to many different major sites since. This is the 4th project coming from the ABC label, with more on the way.  First “Cash”, then “Thug Waffle”, and now this…. Three60 has yet to let me down. I’m not a di*k rider or anything, I just have a great appreciation for rap, and artists who contain core fundamentals of hip hop. This track not only sends a message, but it doesn’t push it so much to the point where you don’t want to listen. Overall, in my opinion, it is a very well executed track that I would highly recommend.

Three60 (and consequentially ABC for that matter) is building a nice catalog just like other more talked about rappers but more quietly. I have played this one multiple times and keep wanting to play it. That is a good sign of its replay value for me. The track is positive with an old school vibe but not preachy or forced.

The production is more percussive and eclectic on this one than his previous releases. One thing Three60 has over many of his peers for me is his growth lyrically and his flow. Actually to be honest, both Three60 and Stoley1st forge excellent deliveries here. The two switch and blend like time travelers from a forgotten era who want to bring ancient flavor to the present.

“Tipsy Master_1” is nostalgic, yet still fresh; Three60 and Stoley1st draw from ghosts years before their time and do it with an excellence that will be immediately revered by their peers. They are independent prodigies with the potential to be diamonds shining in the hip-hop jungle.

They meet the criteria for all those crying for real hip-hop: capable wordsmiths, a conscious lyricists, meaningful concepts, on point beats, and barely any trace of outside influence.

Three60 doesn’t bring catchy jingles or gimmicks to hip-hop, he brings bars, and that is enough to create a following around him and his ABC (All Bout Cash) Ent conglomerate. In him the industry can see a refreshing artist with a mighty pen and plenty room to grow.

Three60 has found his niche as a rhyme-slayer who wants to be seen as a great artist and not a temporary hit maker. He has stayed indie and built a team bringing in people who share his passion for greatness and consistently feeds a growing fan base with raw raps and intricate records.

Skill and talent can keep an artist afloat, but being able to adapt without following the leader allows an artist to truly flourish without losing the essence that make them what they are.

“Tipsy Master_1” is the next stage in Three60’s career, and “Untold Storyz” will no doubt be a mixtape that defines who he is today. From afar, we’ve watched him grow with promise while exploring new avenues in his artistry. I’m hoping for a progressive mixtape, one that shows an artist not stagnant but courageous enough to take things to the next level. I already know, as proved many times before, that Three60 won’t let me down!
