J.Drive – “Untitled” showers the auditory canvas with musical ideas

Hailing from the inner city of Youngstown, Ohio’s Southside, Jessie “J.Drive” grew up in a small apartment in a violent neighborhood without his natural mother or father.  At a very young age he realized that his natural affinity for basketball and Hip-hop music would become the tools necessary to pave his way to a more comfortable lifestyle.  Despite the tragic events that ended his hoop dreams, Jessie’s understanding of what it takes to make the best of his gifts regardless of circumstances is what has brought him thus far. Currently he is pushing his latest single called “Untitled”. In his

Andree Cassielll – “Alimento” – a universality that makes him a perfect fit for the modern era!

The Mexico City native, Andree Cassielll, possesses a down-to-earth humility in his vocal tone that makes his storytelling raps feel like they’re always coming from a place of truth over fiction. Considering the producer and artist, predominantly sings and raps in Spanish, which I cannot understand, that’s an impressive feat. The trap-inspired beats flicker in and out as Andree becomes more invested in his storytelling, and it truly feels like you’re on the phone with a rambling friend. He’s a poet, capable of transporting you somewhere otherworldly with his sound. His music has a genuine fluidity, and if he continues

EH – “Mirrors” lets it fly with the fret-board work to thoroughly rock you!

Baltimore rock guitar ace EH reaffirms his top-of-the-heap status on his new 7 track album “Mirrors”. It’s a superlative set of new music full of tightly-written, engaging instrumentals that don’t need a singer up front to rock hard and hold your attention. This type of writing is EH’s trademark, and is one of the main reasons he will develop a audience. While many other technically-proficient rock guitarists mainly play for other guitar players, EH seems to play for the people. He relies less on continuous shredding and more, on dynamically impacting riffs. EH gets us going with his opening track, “Pounding

Boonie Mayfield – “While Black (Red Light, Blue Light, E’s and R’s)” – sentiments nurtured by a history of prejudice

Solomon Vaughn aka Boonie Mayfield has always traded dazzlingly intricate verses, intellectual thoughts and propulsive rhymes, over inventive, nonlinear productions, and his latest release “While Black (Red Light, Blue Light, E’s and R’s)” re-proposes that peerless aesthetic, while adding an ulterior dose of consciousness, and reinforcing his hard-won authenticity. “This song is a 2-part storyteller based on some of my personal experiences with racism; from getting racially profiled by police, dealing with stereotypes while dating and the ugly side of interacting on social media,” explained Boonie. “I was inspired to display some of the scenarios I’ve gone through on a

Longing, hope, and a need to believe in reality, pour out of “In My Dreams”, the new singer by singer-songwriter Sassy Vee. It’s a clear, accomplished cry from the heart, exorcising its illusions by declaring them bluntly. “In my dreams we’re together. Holding hands and making plans forever. I wish it were true, but I cannot be with you. You have another.” The song introduces Sassy’s strengths: a voice with sultry intensity, songwriting that goes directly to the point and a production that is well aware of both EDM and Pop. The song’s arrangement is lucid and uncluttered, placing all

Maki – “Atlas Hacked” is as substantial as it metaphysical, in its approach

It’s sometimes hard to find the words that accurately bring justice to avant-garde electronic works. With an artist like Maki you almost only have to mention his name for fans of the underground independent scene, to understand the potential for a great album of music. Maki should be an instantly recognizable global name within the mainstream electronic world of sound. His latest release, “Atlas Hacked”, is a classic album in the making. And I do not say this lightly. There is a growing body of research that has examined the impact on adolescents and adults of internet and social media

Camila Paiva has a depth to her music that seems so rare nowadays

Camila Paiva was born in Brazil and as a toddler moved to Boston, Ma, where she grew up and spent most of her life, as well as where she got her start in the music scene. She remembers singing her own versions of American songs through a Barbie Karaoke microphone at the age of 5 and knocking people out with her performances at family cookouts. By the age of 8 Camila took an interest to writing poems and eventually started turning her poems into songs. “I was quiet about it for a long time, I was always nervous about how people might react,” she says. “I’d never taken classes, but in private I learned to play the keyboard by watching YouTube videos.”

She was introduced to producer Mike Cip, who became a friend and mentor, and it was there at Split2nd Entertainment Studio that she began her journey into becoming a seasoned musician. Mike allowed Camila her access to his studio which ultimately gave her the experience needed to learn the basics of producing and engineering.

At that same studio she would meet Justin Mercurio, a Boston bred producer/artist who also became a long time mentor, and eventually her boyfriend. “There was a point where I felt like I had finally found my identity as a musician and that I had gotten all that Boston had to offer me as a musician,” says Camila. “Justin felt the same, so we packed our things and drove to Cali the next week.”

Now with Justin taking on the role of producer, Camila Paiva’s career was ready to move to the next level, as she became even more comfortable creating in a studio environment. Listening to her latest single releases – “Crazy” and “No Comparison”, I think it’s fair to say that Camila is such a special kind of artist.

There’s something admirable about truly stepping out on your own, as your own person, and pursuing your dreams, able to stand without the crutch of a major label. With Camila’s excellent releases, her breathy vocals and sprite-like magnetism she seems ready to gain a considerable following, and creating a demand that will grow exponentially over the next few years.

She has a depth to her music that seems so rare nowadays – of connecting with her audience in such a genuine way. The sound of her vocals and the production is laser sharp focused, yet very dreamy and soulful. It’s a whimsical sonic status that few artists know how to execute in a way that comforts yet makes people sit up and listen carefully.

The electro spaced-out “Crazy” features syncopated, but scattered bass lines and drums with the rhythm maintaining an understated measure. The track becomes an immediate indicator that Camila Paiva intends to center the track on her emotion and romantic narrative, and not any other way.

Her voice is the leader in this particular, very personal introspective heart-beating dance. Slow-rolling and ethereal, the production contains subtle nuances, which accentuate the brilliant lightness of her voice. Camila’s vocals are intriguingly attractive, as she puts the onus of the progression of her relationship on the object of her desires.

The song style choices for these new releases are indeed demanding for Camila Paiva. Her voice prances across the compositions with a high level of confidence and a great deal of control. It seems that Camila has really tuned into her strengths as a singer, and has personalized songs like “No Comparison” to comply with them.

Comfortable with describing relationship intricacies, the word play is masterful in this song. Camila’s verses have great depth, and overall concepts that evoke an urge for deeper understanding and meaning about life and love. This makes it easy for fans to feel a connection with her as an artist.

“No Comparison” definitely has the potential to be every women’s private, personal anthem. Camila’s voice croons through this track flawlessly, as she claims that there is no comparison to her love. Overall, these new songs confirm that Camila Paiva is indeed traveling on the right road in her career.

Her vocals fuse perfectly with the production as if she is floating across the beats, creating this lovely luminous aura. She has begun her path to success and soon she will, with all probability, be crossing the line into stardom. She is definitely on my music crush list.
