This long distance project is made up of Emily Jewel and Samuel Terrazzino, who currently released their debut single “Feels”. “This song goes past the meaning of just two individuals finding each other,” explains the duo, continuing: “At the time this song was written we had just started playing music together again after a multi-year hiatus of minimal contact. This song was the turning point in our relationship from being just friends to something more.” They have since gone from being just friends, to a

Frado180 – an instrumental artist and aspiring Hip hop producer from New York City, NY

Starting out as a passionate hip-hip DJ at the age of 15, Frado180 worked hard at the local gas station in order to own his first Turntable. And he never had to look back as a local group 2 in Room with hit single “Wiggle it” fame soon discovered his talent and helped him produce his first demo. At that moment his propulsive force of music truly began to take shape by its zig-zagging through genres, settling on moments of analogue clarity as well as digital refraction. Frado180 got his first real break when he landed a gig at a

Nachamuni – “Deep Down” a total floor filler with an infectious groove!

“Deep Down” is the new EDM single from electronic music producer Nachamuni, who is based in Vienna Austria. The track extends the reach of his signature sound. Most significantly, the Deep House track showcases a shift toward the high-minded, super-precise catchy pop production vibe of most modern electronic producers. The growling basslines have the potential to draw law enforcement officers to your doorstep, depending on the decibel level and kindness of your neighbors. Its structure dominates the landscape with both breathtaking impact and precision. The track refuses to recycle an old beat, gradually building from a melodic and soulful vocal

Kambiz Mirzaei – “The Lost Ambient” – a dominating melodic mellowness behind a rising wave of dynamic, ascending energy.

The Toronto based composer, Kambiz Mirzaei, has navigated between two musical cultures: from authentic transcendental Middle Eastern melodies to North American flavored ambient, electronic and orchestral arrangements. His collaboration with Jamshid Andalibi in 1999 initiated an alternative approach to traditional use of the folk instrument, Ney, in modern compositions. If you’re looking for an instrumental record that explores cross-culture electronic and ambient themes cohesively, look no further than the album – “The Lost Ambient” by Kambiz Mirzaei. I am astounded that Mirzaei isn’t talked about more often, because there is so much innovation in his compositions and production that it’s

Axl & Arth – Rising Up with “Triumphant”

Fans of Jimmy Century: “eSensuals” – plenty of show-stopping material on hand

The 12-song album “eSensuals” by Oakland CA, Las Vegas-based Fans of Jimmy Century features previously released singles “All My Friends Are Ice Queens,” “Best of My Generation (Johnny Rotten),” and “Tigra Girl”. Fans of Jimmy Century (FOJC)  is an original indiewave, modwave, neo noir duo with trip hop influences, led by vocalist/songwriter/voice actor Alicia Perrone and bassist/songwriter/producer/video director Victor James. In 2013 they signed a 2-single deal with Bungalo/Universal Music Group, through whom they released their well-received single “Va Va Voom to the Moon”. They left the deal and continued to self-release in 2015. After which their song, “Delicate Fever,” was featured in the Warner Bros. film “Get Hard” with Kevin Hart & Will Ferrell.

More Sync placements followed, including for Gossip Girl, Forever 21, Finding Nemo 3D, E News Live, Hall Pass, Bad Teacher, Ray Donovan, Law and Order: SVU, Betsey Johnson XO, Melrose Place, Housewives of NYC and more. “Hot Sahara,” their most popular sync song to date was best known for its prime time feature on Showtime’s The L Word during the infamous threesome scene, aka the Hot Sahara scene.

The “eSensuals” album is a must for anyone who enjoys catchy tunes. Cleverly crafted, slickly produced, high energy songs that are insanely fun to turn up loud and sing along to, even when the lyrics venture over to the cryptic side. Perfect for a night hanging with friends, a summer road trip, or a day at the beach. Although it’s much more than that.

Their songs may be fun and catchy but they have a hard edge to them. You’ll quickly realize that Fans of Jimmy Century is a whole lot deeper than you originally thought. Heavy beats and squelching synths are more than likely to run under coy baby doll vocals and sweetly rich harmonies. Front lady Alicia Perrone has everything it takes to be a big female pop star.

Her voice can carry huge choruses, she’s able to remold her image at the drop of a coin, and she has a classically mischievous face attached to a double-take body. Musical anchorman Victor James brings plenty of glossy production and danceable thumps to the table making sure Fans of Jimmy Century have plenty of show-stopping material on hand.

From the moment the slinky “All My Friends Are Ice Queens”, kicks in, I found “eSensuals” to be a pretty astonishing mix of art, sensitivity, societal discourse and effervescent attitude. There is a surprise around every corner with FOJC.

By the time I had listened through the electro goodness of the sultry “Tigra Girl” and the edgy “Best of My Generation (Johnny Rotten)”, I was amazed, challenged, entertained and beyond pleasantly surprised.

I cannot express how great the album is. It gets better and better as it goes along. Musically, it is a terrific journey into FOJC’s masterful composing, stellar singing, and intense lyrics that remain compelling even after repeated listening.

From “Hot Sahara” to “Ghosts of Paradise”, and “Together in White Leather (Dolce Vita)”, you’ll need to educate yourself to the duo’s compositional forms and conception, as they’re so musically dense.

Rhythms and melodies combine to drive the listener to a euphoric state that reaches its natural conclusion on “Cherry Drops” and “Noirstar (Memories of His City)”, before the electronics give way to the acoustic soundscapes of “Under The Milky Way (Live Acoustic)” and “Ghosts of Paradise (Acoustic Choirgang Mix)”.

Nowadays, it is hard to find an album where you don’t skip a track. This is one of those albums. I haven’t been able to stop playing it since the first listening.  In addition to their own releases, Fans of Jimmy Century will collaborate with producer Chris Moon (best known for discovering Prince) on a special project in 2019. FOJC also produces a popular residency show at The Copa Room on the Las Vegas strip Southside called “Fatale Originale”.
