Singer/songwriter Kaytlyn Cate hails from the picturesque Cascade Mountain range of the Pacific Northwest. Upon the release of her first single, Pitchfork called Kaytlyn “the alt-rock genre’s best kept secret”. Writing about the deepest emotional issues that belie youth and innocence, Kaytlyn’s lyrical work addresses the themes of love, hope, fear, hurt, heartache, and haunting insecurity. In addition to writing songs for other artists, Kaytlyn has been hard at work on her forthcoming EP, ‘The Blue Hour’, with producer David Samuel. Kaytlyn has been reinventing herself as an artist since her first debut. She felt Darkside was not representing who she

Ronnie Walka is a perfectionist when it comes to his craft

Like a cool breeze on a humid day Ronnie Walka comes in like a breath of fresh air with his new offering. Coming off of the visuals for “TIFTL”, his soulful tribute to womanhood, “You and I” is a passionate plea from a man nearing the end of a relationship that he’s battling to save. In the process of the breakup he begins to reminisce about better times yearning to turn the clock back. A real make up to break song that will have you feeling every single word. Ronnie is a perfectionist when it comes to his craft, with

Mike LePond’s Silent Assassins: “Pawn and Prophecy” – Dense, dynamic and super tight

There is no doubt that “Pawn and Prophecy” is going to garner some serious praise. This album puts the ‘classic’ back in metal in a definitive kind of fashion. The album represents the direction many true metal fans hoped and presumed the genre would go after all the ridiculous sub-genres that crawled out of the woodwork over the past few years. This album basically sows the seeds for a whole new generation of power metal – one with technique, speed and aggression that has no regard for radio-friendly or corporate rock elements. There is no denying the awe-inspiring quality and

Newborn: “Shadow Of Your Heart” – atmospheric, beefy, and more than a little radio friendly!

The single, “Shadow Of Your Heart” is a successful demonstration of the progression of Newborn as a band. With emblematic lyrically content, well-crafted vocals, and brilliant instrumentation, this is the gem of the band’s catalog thus far. Cathartically channeling their 90’s grunge predecessors, the beautiful bone-chilling arrangement takes in various genre influences to deliver something intrinsically their own. The band’s credentials as musicians have never been in question since their debut release, but even so, the seamless nature with which they gel is impressive. And while the driving rhythm section and guitars never fail to keep things interesting, it’s vocally

Natalie Jean: “All I Want” offers up a perspective of love, fidelity and relationships

Authenticity is one of those indefinable traits that many artists search and pursue, but never quite find. You can’t build authenticity into a song through a particular gathering of words and phrases; you can’t swagger, pine or shout your way there. It just happens when you put yourself out there, daring people to listen, asking the audience to believe whatever your stories are trying to communicate. It’s an achievement that award winning, multi-nominated singer-songwriter, and Grammy voting member, Natalie Jean manages by never over singing, by using lyrical poetry that sounds like it exists now, as well as in a

Disembodied Existence: “Chapter 1: The Terrestrial Script” – jaw-dropping virtuosity

Disembodied Existence is a Progressive/Technical modern metal band composed of members from around Metro Manila, Philippines. Splendid seems a strange term for a metal-type band, yet it applies to these guys. Relevant expectations include harsh and melodic vocals, amazing musicianship, and tons of atmosphere. This review cannot do justice to the varied combinations of heavy and delicate, powerful and subtle, and always rumbling with energy. If you’ve slowly matured from your head-banging self, into someone who prefers something of much more quality and substance, then with this band you’ve got it. The first time I listened to their single “Chapter

J-Hamz: “I Stack Up Remixes” – breaking free from the formulaic!

A medical doctor by day, J-Hamz is a classically trained pianist who produces electronic by night. J-Hamz has been featured in various music magazines and radio stations. His “I Stack Up” track was a Beatport Staff Pick as well as charting in the top ten electro house and big room charts. The EP “I’d Do Anything” also charted on Beatport and has received airplay on over a 100 college FM radio stations. J-Hamz together with Jaculator also received a nomination for the 2017 Edmonton Music Awards’ as DJ/Electronic Recording of the Year for the aforementioned EP. In his 6th release, the “I Stack Up Remixes” EP, J-Hamz (www.j-hamz.com) unveils the winners of Digital Empire Records’ remix contest for the title track of his Beatport electro house #3 charting EP, “I Stack Up” EP, featuring lyrics and vocals by Jesse Peters (www.jessepetersmusic.com).

J-Hamz has become a fearsome presence these past few years, and we’ve managed to become quite familiar with, and quite fond of, the beat-savvy, real-life equivalent of Dr. Jeckle and Mr. Hyde – doctor by day, producer by night. What we like most about J-Hamz is his ability to transcend genres.

He delves into all facets of electronic music, and he drops beats with the absolute best of them. This 5 track set of remixes is fraught with cuts that are going to crawl into your ears and make their home there for quite a while. Obviously, depending on your personal taste, some beats are better than others, but quality wise, they’re all quite similar in nature, breaking free from the formulaic.

In this new EP, listeners are presented with a combination of surreal remix innovations, booming bangers, revamped classic sounding electro, and reconfigured techno tunes. Each remix can easily stand apart from the tracks they sit next to while maintaining the composure and core structure originality found in J-Hamz’s original music.

However, there are creative moments that really hit the high mark, such as “I Stack Up (SStretch Remix)”, “I Stack Up (EzKill Remix)” and “I Stack Up (N.A.T. Remix)”. But again these depend very much on how you like your EDM sounds shaken, stirred and mixed.

These mixes contain hybrid qualities that show off a plethora of electronic elements fused together, unveiling not only J-Hamz’s original creativity, but brilliant resourcefulness and taste in order to smash these sounds into diverse, pristine and stimulating configurations.

The winning remixes in this set, though in some instances making significant changes and invigorating adjustments from the original, never lose the substance of the J-Hamz’s intended core tone and purpose. The result is a set of remixes, each adding its own distinctive style into a medium made for EDM fans, who in their own right, are each on a different musical-level, taste-wise.
