Still Hustie & WILDZ XL – “Vicious Circle of the Wildz” – another important message that the world needs to hear

Hip Hop is incredibly accessible.  If you have any performing, rhyming or poetic talent – you can tell your life story, through rapping, a beat and accessible means. This makes it globally significant – people can put their own spin on it, and express their individuality, or a collective message. Rappers, as poets, have always been a good reflection of the heart of a community. They take ideas out of the community and spread them to the rest of the world. Sometimes its stuff that’s positive, often times its stuff that’s negative. At best, it’s engaged in social, political and

MrWho??? – “Paint The Sky Funk” – A mega release that fans will devour

Ever heard of the ‘Funkjazzhop’ music style? If not, chances are you’ve never heard Dallas-based jazz/funk/hip hop, artist, producer and eclectic adlibber, MrWho??? And that’s not a question, it’s a damn statement! Coincidence would have it that MrWho??? and the granddaddy of funk, George Clinton, share the same birthday. And that’s not all they have in common. Influenced by the likes of Cameo, James Brown Barkays, George Duke, Lakeside, Maze, and Earth, Wind & Fire, MrWho??? set out to make an impact amongst colleagues and peers. Fate would have it that during 2019, the Dallas creative was approached by Maurice

Gual – “Get Down” – a retro-wave 80’s groove that is total wonderfulness! 

By the age of 10, artist and producer Gual had picked up his first guitar. Two years later he was experimenting with music production, using a Korg Poly-800 synth, his guitar, and an old Panasonic dual cassette recorder. These days Gual is still channeling all of his energy and passion into his music with a nu-disco single entitled “Get Down”. This is an excellent electronic dance track album from Gual. Fat synths, smooth syrupy and soulful vocals, and thick funky basslines make this track a must have for anyone who appreciates any disco or dance music. The whole track has

Love Ghost Premieres their brand new video “Let It All Burn”

Message from lead singer/songwriter Finnegan Bell: “Let It All Burn” is how I see the world through my 18-year-old eyes. The hypocrisy and unwanted advice that weighed me down during senior year led to this song. My Dad being diagnosed with stage 3 cancer made me more determined- “fuck what they say, I make my own way”. The song was produced by Danny Saber (Rolling Stones, U2, Marilyn Manson, David Bowie). The music video was directed by Dean Karr. The promise of his early work led to Karr being asked to direct Marilyn Manson’s “Sweet Dreams.” The resulting piece drew

Denny Strickland sees Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn character as inspiration for new song

Denny Strickland’s new track, Harley Quinn, dropped on Friday 25th October: His inspiration for the song comes from the character Harley Quinn in DC comic-book movie Suicide Squad, which was released in 2016. Denny explains, “At the time I wrote this song, I was watching Suicide Squad and I really liked Margot Robbie’s performance. I imagined her drinking gin and smoking in the club like the bad bitch she is and the lyrics just came to mind. The rest of the song just flowed out from there referencing Louis Vuitton, Lamborghini, Johnny Cage (Mortal Kombat) and my favorite mustang Fox

Global Scum – “Odium” will rattle out your teeth’s fillings!

Austrian musician and vocalist Manuel Harlander gained experience as a guitarist and frontman in various projects at an early stage. These finally culminated in the desire to give space to his creativity and the creation of his solo project Global Scum. Harlander growls, plays all the instruments himself, and is also responsible for the recording and mixing. The new album by Global Scum, entitled “Odium”, is a hard hitting Groove Metal scrutiny of a corrupted world. It reminds me of all of the Soulfly and Sepultura trademarks metal fans love. Bludgeoning heaviness combined with machine-gun beats and a bone crushing

J-Carter: “Time to Shine” is more than quality flows, rhymes, and beats

J-Carter is based out of New Jersey. Motivated by a plethora of hip-hop artists who have appeared on the scene during the past 30 years, Carter began his musical journey by writing lyrics at the age of 13. “Time to Shine”, his debut album, has been in the works for nearly 2 years now. “And now it’s here to hopefully shed light on all aspects of the world we live in,” says J-Carter. The Deluxe version of the album includes 19 tracks and features Cateasha Carter, Jasmine Carter, Aaron Carter, Jacee Carter and Janiya Harris. “Time to Shine” is a clinic of Hip-Hop execution, an insanely long album that is almost devoid of filler which is a near impossibility in the genre. J-Carter’s flow is diverse, deftly maneuvering between melodic catchy hooks to ridiculously fast rhymes that are often genius in their complexity.

“Still A Killa”, “Ain’t Yo Ni**a”, “Got It Going On” ft. Cateasha Carter, “Hold Mine Down” ft. Jacee Carter and “Remember When” all show J-Carter flowing at an absurdly high level and backed by stunning beats that are powerfully strong in their own right, but are still overshadowed by the smooth flow of the vocal deliveries themselves.

The strength of “Time to Shine” is more than quality flows, rhymes, and beats; it’s alarmingly consistent in a genre that is anything but, and stands as an utter achievement of rap art. It weighs strong lyrically and accessibility wise, and is an overwhelmingly well executed Hip-Hop album from a vocal delivery standpoint.

J-Carter’s talent is undeniable, and almost impossible to conceive until you press play. J-Carter is one of the purest underground rappers to grace the mic. When you talk about lyrics, punchlines, metaphors, flow and mic presence, Carter has it all. Check him out on killer tracks such as “Who Here Wit Me” ft. Aaron Carter and Cateasha Carter, “Get Up Off That”, “I’m On It” and “Keep It 100”.

From the above tracks you can gauge that J-Carter’s key to a successful sound though is not just the sheer verbal wizardry but his ability to tap into crossover audiences with songs that mixed fly beats, soulful samples and a strong personality.

He is also equally good at holding down entire tracks on his own, or sharing verses and choruses with his features. The bottom line is, if your head isn’t furiously bobbing to some of these beats, you’re either tone deaf or just aren’t a fan of hip hop at all.

So while the beats are created to make your neck sore, J-Carter only enhances the experience by riding each beat flawlessly. And his ability to utilize imagery just from the ambience of each song is amazing. J-Carter’s confidence on the mic makes him stand out among his contemporaries.

By the end of the album, most listeners will be begging for more of this refreshing sound. “Time to Shine” is an album that provides an immediate impact and seeks a steady response from fans in all four corners of the hip-hop world.

The lyrics sung will supply the elation that fills rooms, bring the nostalgia that transports us to the late 90’s, and fuels an assertive voice that booms through the microphone. The album “Time To Shine” is on the shelves of all major digital download stores. Find and follow J-Carter on Twitter and Facebook. Visit his Website for more information.
