Tiaday stated: “R&B has been the foundation of my life in music since I can remember. Gospel, soul and R&B were always playing in the house or being sung by my father who was also a singer and he loved Stevie Wonder, Otis Redding, Donny Hathaway, etc. One of the first songs I ever learned how to REALLY train singing along to was “A Song For You” by Donny Hathaway.

DAV!D&CLARA: “Repair” – rugged and intense!

The man and machine duo of DAV!D (David Castillo) and his computer CLARA, better known as DAV!D&CLARA, are back with a new single in 2019, called “Repair”. The track is taken from the upcoming album, “CONFESSIONS OF THE MACHINE” to be released early 2020. Much of this latest single displays a minimalist, almost survivalist element, as if every movement, gesture, and note is conserved and used for maximum effect. DAV!D’s songwriting principle seems to be “less is more”, a sentiment CLARA seems to adhere to perfectly. Together they have an artistic sensibility that’s far from common. The song is based

Iskar D’Abrel: “Ruins of You” – a compelling musical depth

Perhaps Iskar D’Abrel’s only misfortune is releasing his music at the wrong time.  Had he dropped the track “Ruins of You” in the 70’s, 80’s or even early nineties, he surely would have been recognized universally along with other greats of those eras.  It was a time where artists were not defined by a specific genre and allowed to approach different styles of music with a creative freedom almost totally lost today. Iskar is a master of song construction.  No song in his catalog is just a repeat of parts.  Each song is its own story; each follows its own

The Glacier Effect: “False Memories” carries many emotional moments

The Glacier Effect is Jason McCann, a self-taught multi-instrumentalist and graduate of the Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences who is currently based in Sacramento, California. The project’s music incorporates elements of shoegaze, indie rock, Goth, darkwave, and 90’s alternative rock to create its unique, guitar-based, cinematic sound. The quality of work across The Glacier Effect’s latest 10 track album release, “False Memories” is uniformly high and displays a genuinely concise approach: tightly structured, unadorned, precisely detailed pieces that never over stay their welcome, and never exhaust their premise. Which of course is so unlike most instrumental music. Before applying

MUSIC INDUSTRY VETERAN RICK LEVY IS “HIGH IN THE MID-60S”

High in the Mid-’60s: How to Have a Fabulous Life in Music without Being Famous first started as Rick Levy’s journal (which began while touring as Peter Noone’s bandleader and tour manager) where he wrote about discovering his roots and what turned out to be a lifelong passion realized. Readers will discover High in the Mid ‘60s is a memoir, rock and roll everyman story, spiritual discovery, survival manual and an anecdotal treasure chest of life on the road. Rick went from being a member of The Limits, a garage band, to having a failed major label recording contract, to

NuJ4X: “Dab (On Dem Haterz)” – glistening and eminently marketable

Waverly, Tennessee’s masked EDM DJ / Producer, NuJ4X, has set his sights on making a splash with his debut single, “Dab (On Dem Haterz)”. The journey for NuJ4X started when he asked his 13 year old son what he wanted to become. On replying, “a DJ”, NuJ4X wanted to show interest in his child’s choice and strengthen their bond, hence he started playing around with music…and liked it. After countless weeks, days and hours learn how to craft instrumentals, NuJ4X began to find his rhythm. Upon doing so, he created the instrumental beat for “Dab (On Dem Haterz)” and decided he really liked it. Offhand he jotted down the lyrics to what would become his debut single. He decided that he liked it so much, that he needed to release it to the masses. After time spent brainstorming, the moniker “NuJ4X” was created, along with the mask, dreads, and an all new brand.

The glistening and eminently marketable “Dab (On Dem Haterz)”, is a pleasant and inoffensive affair – unlike its general genre traits – with great hooks and definitely a professional slickness. From the first few seconds of the track it’s abundantly clear that NuJ4X is aiming for a very specific kind of starry-eyed, mid-tempo electronica with a wide appeal.

Influences and intent aside, he does bring to his work an appealingly uplifting production style. It gives the track a unified groove that nicely complements the studio vocals he’s recruited for the project, which acquit themselves well.

Indeed, it’s hard not to get swept up in the stylish hooks or the shimmering bounce of “Dab (On Dem Haterz)” both of which make a compelling case for NuJ4X’s pop sensibilities. When he nails it, he nails it. NuJ4X is a talented producer who certainly knows how to achieve his vision. Moreover, the track’s overriding simplicity is the main component of its charm.

Instead of diving head first into over-the-top drops or adding too much to the production, the vocals shine and the nuances of the song’s moving atmospheric elements get their time in the spotlight too. If the goal is to make people want to dance and send them a positive message as well, then “Dab (On Dem Haterz)” succeeds in doing both.

Fusing together lush electronics, cutting edge production elements, some rap, and melodic pop sections, into what will probably become his own unique signature EDM sound, NuJ4X is serving a vivacious beat that’s combined with a real taste for creativity. This is one of those songs that remind you how powerful you can make simple melodies by nailing the delivery and soundscape.

NuJ4X knows how to take the listener out of the room they are in and into his musical domain where he shares his feel-good vibes. And quite honestly, we’re more than ready for this experience. One minute you’re feeling content and calm, the next you have energy surging through you.

Sometimes you can come across a musician whose music surprises you. NuJ4X is one of those musicians. As he works to perfect his craft NuJ4X has been recording future singles, like “Confessions of a Pop Star” which was written for, and about Lady Gaga, “Bad Boy” which is a testament to no matter how bad the boys are, the women still desire them, and finally “Big Beats” which is NuJ4X’s ode to music.

These will lead up to his debut album which will be titled “DJ for teh Lulz”. The title is derived from NuJ4X poking fun at himself for trying to break all of the rules in the EDM genre and subvert the methods everyone else is using. Never taking himself too seriously NuJ4X has arrived at this point as a testament to his love for his son, but he’s staying for power of the joy that music brings to all of our lives.
