Her debut single “Killing My Love” set for release on Jan. 17, 2020, showcases her soaring vocals which are reminiscent of both Florence Welch (of Florence and the Machine) and Adele. “Killing My Love” is a love song about a relationship that has ended and how you try to kill any feelings for the other person that are left in your heart. It’s a very strong, heartfelt and melancholy track written and produced by Flavio and Claudio Zampa. As a founding member of

Texas-based rapper, Kidricc James drops his dynamic new single “Gravy”. The track which has been peaking on Digital Radio Tracker’s Global Top 150 Independent Airplay Chart, is also supported by an engaging video shot in Houston. If I had to give a quick intro into this track, it would be: Great emotional depth in storytelling. Engaging beat. Thoroughly satisfying rap skills. More than just multisyllabic rhymes. Relatable and relevant. I think Kidricc James accomplished his intents with this track. “Gravy”really revolves around him in a much more different way than his prior works.

Ervin Mitchell drops the official music video for ‘Break The Internet’

Emerging rap star Ervin Mitchell reminds us to “count our blessings every day” in the official music video to ‘Break The Internet’. On the track, Ervin Mitchell proves that he is a master at his craft of writing. I also love his style when it comes to his vocal and rapping abilities. His sound is different, laidback, almost melancholic in a way. The track is a beautiful character study that will make you consider the importance of social media, the problem of money, and the meaning of life in general. In a world full of meaningless music, it’s always great

Warchief Rasco – “Good Ones Go To Soon” continues his atmospheric Hip-hop fusion sound!

“Good Ones Go To Soon” is an oath for the real ones I’ve lost in my life from either drugs, violence, or suicide to keep going hard and following the dream while spreading love all at the same time,” says Warchief Rasco. Rasco has a gift for writing concise, infectious earworms. When a track such as “Good Ones Go To Soon” arrives at its conclusion, it leaves a void in the listener that can only be filled by playing the track again and again. The cut has a quality backing instrumental, complete with a reverbed staccato guitar riff and a

Raine: “Is This All” – They articulate overarching purpose and meaning

Thoughtful, in control, mature. These sentiments are eminent both lyrically and musically on Raine’s latest studio single, and accompanying video “Is This All”. This was created by experienced musicians – The guitars are omnipresent, keeping the ambitious song anchored while complementing Christina Raine’s voice in a subtle call and response fashion. Christina, meanwhile – oh, the voice. Her vocals have a gritty power with a raw edge that is palpable, just waiting for the right moments to release.

If every group had the opportunity to make a song that represented itself in its most confident, comfortable and sincere state, this would be it. Raine, is made up of Christina Raine (Vocals, Guitar), Rodney Wallin (Bass), Michael Rone (Percussion), Dom Val (Keyboard), Matt Darsey (Viola), Martin Garlitos (Guitar), and Ron Brown (Drums).

Raine’s vision of collective aspiration and individual empowerment permeates this single. Christina’s soul-stirring voice soars and dips majestically on an eagle’s wing. It’s a troubled heart with tenacious muscles. Time after time, Darsey’s Viola, stirring and soulful, nail the song’s heart.

The acoustic and electric guitars emerge like a pair of spectral angels, while Brown’s sinuously thumping drums keep the whole thing together. The band’s a glorious monster, yet there’s more, much more. There’s the rolling basslines, the steady percussion and the clean organ keys.

Raine’s collective and individual talents have no doubt absorbed thickets of influences. Now, they reach out to pull you up into their blended sound which cleverly hides the sheer toil of inspired performance dedication they have sweated on the road.

They articulate overarching purpose and meaning more clearly than most. So does this sound like feel-good PR talk? Listen closely to the band, and after you’ve felt the music, judge for yourself. The road-tested communal feeling Raine have, feeds into the band’s songs, which seems clearly crystallized on “Is This All”.

There’s no pretense or posing, they simply get on with the job of making music. It’s more about substance than fluff. The band’s synergy resonates from their rapturous choruses, right down into the groundswell roar of their verses, with a sense self-empowerment.

The result is a confident-sounding record that never tries too hard and focuses on deep grooves with soulful lead vocals. “Is This All” is a single that gets everything right from the first note to the last and it’s a welcome recording from a band that deserves all the good things that will come its way in the wake of this release.
