Busola Martins: “Pleasant Surprises” ft. Bukola Bekes – You can hear the passion and her intention

“He turns my life around”, with these words, Busola Martins whets our appetite as we are led with bated breath into her new release “Pleasant Surprises” ft. Bukola Bekes.  With her ingenious use of simple questions and quotable phrases, she challenges us on a mid-tempo cliff hanger to re-access our relationship with Jesus. Precisely because Gospel thrives on its spontaneity, it has often traded lyrical sophistication for its immediacy.  This is not so with this track. Saved without being sanctimonious, and heaven-aspiring while remaining down-to-earth, when it comes to conveying ministry within her music, Busola Martins handles the load with passion

Weston Simonis set to release “Yoga Pants” video on Thanksgiving

For those who’re still unfamiliar with Weston Simonis and his wide range of musical styles, this is a very special talent. A native of the Grande Ronde Valley, Weston is difficult to pin down to one or two genres. Some might say he’s all over the place. I say he has the special ability to play Blues, Rock, Funk, Metal, Punk and any progressive thinking crossover music at will. Listening to his award winning album “Moments Of Intoxication” has reminded me that there was a time when you could hear all types of artists on the same radio station. Now

Jay Felicite: “758 Stories 2” features killer hooks and irresistible melodies

When thinking of England as a musical landscape, Dancehall may not be the first genre that pops to mind for people not in the know, but it’s there, under the surface of the streets, the thump of the drum and pop of the bass reverberating into walls, and spilling out under the doorways from dub clubs and roots bars. One of the current underground stars of the UK’s indie circuit is probably Jay Felicite (pronounced; Fay-Lee-See-Tay) is a Saint Lucian born and raised singer, songwriter, sound engineer. The resilient firebrand is making a big noise with the release of his new

Ghost Unknown: “7 Point Society” – raps that can be both deeply personal and confrontational

Ghost Unknown is an American musician based out of Charlotte NC. He has primarily done Hip Hop for over a decade and has in recent years stepped foot into the worlds of other genres and that of theatrical performances as well. Ghost Unknown recently dropped his 19 track debut studio album “7 Point Society”, featuring tracks with Art Project – an open and ongoing collaborative project headed by Dan Royer and Josh Bean.  I only discovered Ghost Unknown a fortnight ago. His talent as an emcee is truly jaw dropping – blistering flow, incredible storyteller, raps that can be both deeply personal and confrontational, and sometimes really witty too. On this debut album, the Charlotte rapper shows his hunger to gain respect – not anger, but drive to prove he seriously belongs in the game.

Songs like “Life Changes” and “No More” ft. Ambiguous & JAY MAC are full of the confidence and swagger of a man on a mission who will not be stopped. He is comfortable talking about his personal aspirations in life on “I Wanna Live” ft. F.Dux & Capital Chris and the philosophical “People Round Here” ft. Dan Royer, Jaws & Ambiguous, but still has an uplifting message of hope for humanity running through the album.

Some of the best songs on the album are his character raps like Can It Really Be” ft. Suicide Saints and “Nirvana Angeles, Dead Trees & City Lights” ft. Matt Dean, E.Low Dubb & Dan Royer.

The beats and production on this album are impeccable – your head will be bumping the entire album, but there’s still enough space for Ghost Unknown and his featured guests to rhyme. Ghost bursts out of the gates with an unstoppable power on “You’re SOL” ft. Tonya Wood and there isn’t a single weak track in the bunch from here on.

If you consider yourself even a passing fan of underground hip hop you must add this album to your library immediately. Simply put, it features some essential listening – “Demented Times” ft. D-Crisis, Dana Kerr & Marshall Alexander, “Concrete Baptism” ft. Dan Royer, Kyng Rash & KidCrusher and “People Round Here” ft. Dan Royer, Jaws & Ambiguous, among them.

None of the tracks on the album is condescending as such, and much of it is infused with the constant drive to push forward, to do better, to grind harder, and to understand more, in order to improve and sometimes even overcome the problems of this world.

With a hard-hitting delivery and words that pack an even greater punch, “7 Point Society” tackles real issues affecting real people. A relevant rapper is one who has something meaningful to say, penning words that will resonate with a broad audience. Ghost Unknown has achieved just that here.

In an increasingly polarized world at the hands everyday personal, social and cultural struggles Ghost Unknown exposes some of the world’s ugliness and our intrinsic weaknesses. Beaming with an air of honesty, you can feel the passion that Ghost Unknown puts into his music.

“7 Point Society” is a welcome work by an artist who’s put it all on the table throughout this album with sublime wordplay and otherworldly atmospherics. A stunning dose of realism when we need it most.
