Forest Robots: “Timberline and Mountain Crest” – Inspired by natural landscapes

Let’s start of by saying that Fran Dominguez aka Forest Robots is a master at producing chilled out electronic music with heavy beats, and lots of orchestral instrumentation thrown in the mix. To call it electronic music almost seems unfair, as it implies this is music made by machines. Yes, I realize he is called Forest Robots, but this could not be further from the truth, as Dominguez’s music is pumping with life and human emotion. His latest album “Timberline and Mountain Crest” showcases 10 tracks of stunning depth, the kind of album you just throw the headphones on, turn

Edward St. Martin: “Lullaby” – blur the lines between savvy pop stylings and hard hitting kinetic soundscaping

Hailing from San Diego, Edward St. Martin has a background in film composition and classical music. His most recent single is “Lullaby”. Expectations met, superseded and immediately I hit replay. This track is going round again and I’m not the only one within ear shot of my stereo who is pleased about it. The easy laid back crossover Pop/EDM groove take is not unexpected, as I had already read that St. Martin was one for mellow tones combined with pop and soul vibes. But this track has another key element which makes a record of this nature standout. Intelligence. This

Alisa Chirco: “Give Me More” – bench marked with confidence!

Alisa Chirco sure isn’t shy about revealing what’s on her mind, on her brand new single “Give Me More”, the follow up to her almost gothic-like pop ballad “Box”. Alisa sounds passionate, wanting and determined, in a driven rock song that is an anthem for empowered women. Her music here is very strong, has meaning, and is legit. The track shows that she is learning to emote in a more visceral and arguably more demonstrative way. Alisa has now escalated to being a rock chic with an attitude and bold open-confessional lyrics. A sensible direction for any reinvention is maturity, and

Roger Cole & Paul Barrere: “Old Folks Boogie Redeux” – true to their sound!

The citation came from a line Paul’s dad – an actor at the time – picked up at a vaudeville theater. He would often sing it around the house, so eventually Paul got hooked turned it into a song. For some time, Paul’s partner over at Better Daze Records, Roger

Producer Lavi Beats – From Tehran to Miami!

Lavi Hoss is also known as Lavi Beats. He was born on February 23rd in 1985 to Persian American family. He was born in Tehran, the capital city of Iran. He is a son to Atta Hoss, his father and Angalia Aghapodis, his mother. He has more of his immediate family as he is an elder brother to Cameron and he has a sister, Paris. Lavi was a student of the Azadi High School in Tehran. Once done with his high school, he got into Tehran University for higher studies.

He has a unique style with music and that is due to his upbringing in an environment influenced by music. He grew up in a musical family and came across many different forms of it. His father was a former Persian singer and his own first experience with instrument came up when he started to play cello at just the age of three. Later, he went on to play the keyboard with which he continued for four years of his life. Until finally he settled for guitar after he had picked it up at thirteen.

However, soon after his liking for the guitar his curiosity got the better of him and he went on to experiment with the drums. The one he worked with was the traditional Persian drum known as the tonbak. Once done with that he moved on to the next instrument, sitar and it can be rightfully said that this exposure to all these amazing instruments is something that had an influence on his music sense. Also, they definitely had a part to play in the development of his musical style.

Lavi Hoss is all about music and it is not only specified to singing. He does a lot more than that! He is a DJ, a record producer, a singer and a songwriter. Alongside singing he continues to play the keyboard and drums. Hence, he has experimented a lot in this field we call music and he seems to have done all of it. Still, this music star like all of us has his own favorites from the field. The ones he would go on to credit being influences on the music he produced. Sam Cook, Bob Marley, Tiesto, Afro Jack, Major Lazor and Stevie Wonder include the ones to name as those icons who influenced Hoss.

Over the years Lavi Hoss experimented with music and kept on practicing. He stuck by the music and in the end music stuck by him as well. It was this dedication and strong will that got him to start with the international musical world in 2009. Since then he has been a player of the world of music. He writes his own songs and produces them in his home studio. Plus, he likes to experiment with music and is always up to try different genres of music.

Added to all his qualities, Lavi Hoss is a team player and looks forward to working with other artists. He is capable of working in a team and has been doing so. He has worked with many recording artists for that matter. Most notably among them would be Pitbull and the singer Belinda. He produced singles with Belinda called ‘After We Make Love’ and one featuring Pitbull called ‘I Love You… Te Quiero’. Moreover he also worked on one called ‘Catarsis’ a song from Belinda’s fourth studio album.

He developed in his recent years under the influence of the music in Tehran, but he has never restricted him to that at all. Although traditional EDM music is his roots for music. His vast and diverse CD collection and his songs are a clear proof of that. He claims that the music he listens to is a great influence on the work he produces.

Now, having worked in the industry for many years he plans to release his debut single ‘Dance Like Nobody$ Watchin’ On August-31-2018 under Fire Dance Lion Records which will depict the changes Lavi has undergone over his recent years. The songs are a clear picture of his development as an artist and a singer specifically.

Thus, from his major switch from Tehran to Miami he had grown and developed into the star we know him as today.
