I’ve always loved Infectious Rhythm since I first him about a year back with “Daydreams”. To be quite honest, I think the good thing about this independent electronic music producer is that he is consistent. He doesn’t have songs that repeat or sound the same, or at least, I don’t think so. I think what he does is adhere to a certain theme in each release, with a great level of creativity that becomes apparent the more you listen to it. I like it because it shows me that this artist knows who he is are and he knows the

Keys And Vices: “Chronic Nostalgia” can rock the socks off of any audience!

Keys And Vices are something of a Trojan horse. Hidden within the confines of a band with a cryptic name and fronted by a deceptively talented lady is a power-trio that can rock the socks off of any audience and probably any band they share a bill with. Stacked with massive riffs and sweet hooks, their “Chronic Nostalgia” is a monumental step in their recording career. With beefy production that highlights the tight dynamic between front-lady Jennifer Valdez (Vocals, Guitar, Piano, Lyrics), bassist Kevin McCarty and drummer Kris Ayala, the band’s first full-length offering packs enough punch to dominate modern

Exit 22 Music: “Just As You Are” has cracked the code for the modern music world

Barely a few months after the release of their previous single, Exit 22 Music and Chris Calamera are back with the new record “Just As You Are”. And it seems like the only rule of the New York City-based project is: there are no rules. They are mixing genres and experimenting with different styles and the result is the unique sound of Exit 22. Whenever the Calamera project drops a new release my expectations are extremely high. The song starts off slow and soulfully, and then loads itself with energy. The female vocals, as always, has never sounded so strong.
