Pete Vagabond – “Without You” (feat. Kireina Michan) – effortless expanding synths and elegant uplifting vocals

Using an assortment of DAWs since childhood, Pete Vagabond has been making music for many years. Only recently did he decide to share my music. Inspired by what’s trending, combined with the sound of the 90’s, Vagabond makes electronic music, mostly with a definite progressive house twist. His latest single is “Without You” (feat. Kireina Michan). With an element old school candor, the best part of Pete Vagabond’s production is its uncanny ability to grow on you, stick in your head and stay there to the point that you just might find yourself humming the melody or bassline in the

On “Variations” June O owns his style and the environment he thrusts the listener into

June O aka Michael O’Connor, is a 17 year old Colombian/American from Texas. By shining light on his artistic prowess, his EP project “Variations” allows the performer to prove himself as both a singer and rapper. Here he provides various musical experiences for listeners as he moves from rap to rock soundscapes. June O steps outside of his comfort zone, and outside of the box as he experiments with different flows. The addition of alternative styles is a positive step for any upcoming musician’s career. The presence of these stylistic changes on the EP makes a statement that features and

MINOH – “The Witness” – The grit-filled production is near flawless

Jamin Oh (guitar, vocals) and Frank Strozyk (drums) first met in the 5th grade. They then played together in a metal hardcore band called The Bierfront. Twenty years later, the Korean classical guitarist and the German geology professor met again and started to write songs as a side project which in 2019 officially became MINOH. The Asian progressive post-rock duo are currently working on their debut EP, set for release in October 2020. In the meantime they have dropped the stunning single and accompanying video, “The Witness”, which addresses the increasingly dystopian state of the world. MINOH is anything but

Strangers Of Necessity – “Abundance” – dripping with jazzy soul!

Every once in a while, there comes a track that arrives out of the left field and takes people by surprise. One that can prematurely declared an instant classic and actually lives up to the title. I love all types of music, but my taste is irrelevant. What is relevant is the fact that the single, “Abundance” by Midwest duo Strangers Of Necessity, will be considered great years from now. The track speaks to a generation of people struggling to prosper and find harmony, in a confusing, stressful modern environment. The duo bring forth their mindset and experiences, with immaculate flow

The Love Theme – “Hold On” – one mighty swirl of dance-floor groove

“Hold On” is a groovy cauldron of electronic shades and textures. Part dubstep, part soul, part funk, pretty much all breaks; there’s a rhythmic melting pot attitude that runs through the track, which ricochets off the walls with crusty slapping drums and long-dark-tunnel basslines. This is the latest track by The Love Theme – the brainchild of producer Dominic Owen on his Smokersblend record label. The cut is taken off an upcoming album, out later this year. “Hold On” is an absolute monster of a tune with soulful vocal chants, and some funky bluesy guitar throughout. As with a lot


NEW ALBUM MYSTIC OUT NOW VIA STRANGE MAIN/STRANGE MUSIC NEW VIDEO FOR “GOODBYE” With authentic storytelling and varying sounds, Mackenzie Nicole bares her soul and shares her most intimate emotions, thoughts, and struggles throughout the songs on her new album Mystic out now on Strange Main (the pop music division of Strange Music.) “It’s a story I needed to tell,” Mackenzie explains. “I’m not the only person who’s been through this. I’m not the only person who has broken down and felt like the only one in the world.” With a desire to reach others who are struggling and further

Matthew J Van Howe – “Emergent Narrative” – a deluge of his sonic palette!

You could call this ambient, experimental, drone, avant-garde, cinematic or simply electronic music, the fact is “Emergent Narrative”, is so impactful it’s like it’s its own genre. It’s as if some new musical form has been created from retro synthwave sounds, and ultra-modern avant-garde motifs. I was stunned by the textures, and the moods that got stuck in my head, along with the intensity and dynamic depth. This is an album to hear again and again. Loud, raucous, serene, gentle, stretching, insistent, melodic, dissonant. It is a collection of 12 musical pieces with simple one-word titles. Meaning, the Chicago composer,

Andy Pett – “Back Again” turns hurt into art with great results on this song

Experience with adversity builds exemplary character and a spirit of resilience that allows artists to deliver great music. Their personal stories provides them with original ideas and profound insight to rap or sing about, creating a relatable feeling of vulnerability that fans emotionally connect with. Many prominent artists from today’s culture have battled through adversity to become widely accepted and beloved. There is an interesting argument – and quite a lot of statistics lean toward this theory – that adversity is necessary to become successful.  The bottom line seems to be that many artists lack the ambition to succeed because

LeeMann Bassey: “6 Feet Under” illustrate the ways in which he’s a true artist

A full-time model who has worked with renowned photographers such Cavier Coleman, Jimi Sweet, and Luis Lozano, LeeMann Bassey’s passion is singing. Hailing from Central Islip, NY, the soulful R&B artist debuted officially during the summer of 2017, although he changed his stage name to Lee Alexander briefly after a stint in the gospel music realm. His two track single “Colored” will be available for download on all major digital outlets on October 31st. In the meantime got a taste of one of the track to be included in the package – “6 Feet Under”. A heartfelt ballad, the song narrates coping with life’s imperfections which you cannot change, like you height for example. 6 feet alludes to the average height of models who are often seen as the most beautiful people in the world. This song is meant to speak to the hearts of those who feel they don’t make the grade in things they may aspire to.

This qualifies as minimalist avant-garde R&B; the reflection of what’s perceived to be known in the genre and the dismantling of it into a reworked lesson, something that challenges what you know, what you’ve been taught, and what you’ve learned.

LeeMann Bassey grapples with this style in a profoundly understated way. He doesn’t sketch his choruses with the production of a radio hit. He welcomes R&B in bluesy grayscale tones, choosing jazzy electric guitars over traditional synth and bass-heavy R&B. It’s an artist confronting life’s frailties, and LeeMann does so in a way that bares all without sounding like a sloppy, sappy mess.

LeeMann Bassey absorbs his influences, pours them through a strainer, and then filters that product once again. He is more than his voice, and “6 Feet Under” sees him illustrate the ways in which he’s a true artist.

Regardless of how much these lyrics were influenced by lines like, “I know you cannot see, but I know I’m living in a world that I’m 6 feet under for,” the ache in LeeMann’s voice is universal.

And it’s this breaking voice that carries the track. Whether he’s being candid or vulnerable, and lyrically baring it all, LeeMann’s songwriting speaks to the humanity in us all. He lets himself go, and makes music about how he really feels, and the project comes out beautifully.

Tracks like “6 Feet Under” showcases LeeMann Bassey’s unique vocal and songwriting talents as well as his ability to paint a thought-provoking picture backed only by a bass, drums and glistening guitar strokes.

LeeMann shuns the regular stalwarts of the genre and elects to record a stripped down song, which allows his incredibly diverse vocal delivery and message, to take center stage, where it should be. The track is every bit as boldly conceived, brilliantly executed as it is irrefutably fresh.
