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

The driving themes behind the EP is alluded to in the song titles themselves – “Perception”, “Sentiment” and “Singularity”. Each discussing the existential weight of its own meaning

Still Hustie & WILDZ XL – “Vicious Circle of the Wildz” – another important message that the world needs to hear

Hip Hop is incredibly accessible.  If you have any performing, rhyming or poetic talent – you can tell your life story, through rapping, a beat and accessible means. This makes it globally significant – people can put their own spin on it, and express their individuality, or a collective message. Rappers, as poets, have always been a good reflection of the heart of a community. They take ideas out of the community and spread them to the rest of the world. Sometimes its stuff that’s positive, often times its stuff that’s negative. At best, it’s engaged in social, political and

MrWho??? – “Paint The Sky Funk” – A mega release that fans will devour

Ever heard of the ‘Funkjazzhop’ music style? If not, chances are you’ve never heard Dallas-based jazz/funk/hip hop, artist, producer and eclectic adlibber, MrWho??? And that’s not a question, it’s a damn statement! Coincidence would have it that MrWho??? and the granddaddy of funk, George Clinton, share the same birthday. And that’s not all they have in common. Influenced by the likes of Cameo, James Brown Barkays, George Duke, Lakeside, Maze, and Earth, Wind & Fire, MrWho??? set out to make an impact amongst colleagues and peers. Fate would have it that during 2019, the Dallas creative was approached by Maurice

Gual – “Get Down” – a retro-wave 80’s groove that is total wonderfulness! 

By the age of 10, artist and producer Gual had picked up his first guitar. Two years later he was experimenting with music production, using a Korg Poly-800 synth, his guitar, and an old Panasonic dual cassette recorder. These days Gual is still channeling all of his energy and passion into his music with a nu-disco single entitled “Get Down”. This is an excellent electronic dance track album from Gual. Fat synths, smooth syrupy and soulful vocals, and thick funky basslines make this track a must have for anyone who appreciates any disco or dance music. The whole track has

Love Ghost Premieres their brand new video “Let It All Burn”

Message from lead singer/songwriter Finnegan Bell: “Let It All Burn” is how I see the world through my 18-year-old eyes. The hypocrisy and unwanted advice that weighed me down during senior year led to this song. My Dad being diagnosed with stage 3 cancer made me more determined- “fuck what they say, I make my own way”. The song was produced by Danny Saber (Rolling Stones, U2, Marilyn Manson, David Bowie). The music video was directed by Dean Karr. The promise of his early work led to Karr being asked to direct Marilyn Manson’s “Sweet Dreams.” The resulting piece drew

ImprovFusic: “The TaleTeller” – a patchwork of colorful musical motifs

Esther Y.W.Wong, a registered music therapist, a multi-instrumentalist and a composer based in Hong Kong. Inspired by music around the world and all her travelling experiences, her style of music blends the modern with the traditional. Cat S.Y. Chau who has worked in social welfare since 1997 is the first registered music therapist in Hong Kong with a social work degree. She is experienced in providing music therapy service with various needs. Together they are the founders of a pioneering organization in Hong Kong called ImprovFusic, which was established in 2018 to cultivate community building and promote mental health, using music to connect people and share the joy of music interaction and self-expression.

Last November they released the 9 track album, entitled “The TaleTeller” which blends acoustic and electronic instruments in a patchwork of colorful musical motifs, each telling their own story. ImprovFusic are wonderful music artists. If you enjoy world music, ambient, or new age music, then you will love this album.

If there’s one thing I know for sure, it’s this: Listening to “The TaleTeller” for the first time is an experience. The second you hear the opening bars begin on “The Great Venture” you know there’s a journey ahead of you. It’s not until you fully immerse yourself a couple of tracks later, however, that you realize how beautiful that journey is.

At their best, ImprovFusic channels a soul soothing, calming presence throughout the album. The musicians, therapists and backpackers, show how deeply affecting their music is as they combine traditional instruments and modern flair. Their attention to mood-inducing tone and timbre is simply stunning; the focus deftly changing from calm to climactic, and wistful to triumphant.

The music is heavily world fusion based, so attention is especially paid to traditional acoustic instrumentation, some of which Wong and Chau have collected around the world. Throughout “The TaleTeller” you will hear instruments such as the Rav Vast, Tabla, Frame Drum, Udu Drum, Slaptop Cajon, Sansula, Wind and Strings instruments from around the world, as well as different kinds of synthesizers.

The sounds of these instruments weave in and out of soundscapes painted by layers of interchanging melodic and rhythmic patterns. The music is so easy on the ear that that you could easily forget that you’re actually concentrating on listening to the album. And that’s the catch.

ImprovFusic creates music that feeds the soul just as much as it pleases the ear. It never attempts to command your attention but rather leans towards captivating it. “The TaleTeller” is as much of a spiritual experience as it is a musical one, ultimately this only makes the album stronger as a whole.

The underlying beauty found in tracks such as “The Heart Journey”, “The Flying Dream” and “The Transformer” is simply undeniable. Perhaps the best track here is “The Ocean Fable” which can only be described as jaw-dropping. It’s easily one of the most triumphant moments, forging a life-affirming, climactic melody.

All around though, the interweaving melodies are as captivating as ever, if not more so, and the production makes sure the finer sonic details don’t get lost in the mix. It’s the kind of music that’s perfect for sitting back and letting your mind take you wherever ImprovFusic are wanting you to go.

Esther Y.W.Wong and Cat S.Y. Chau ease you into the musical wonderlands they create as each track rises up gracefully and majestically. This melting pot of atmospheres, entrancing rhythms and melodies is juxtaposed against the visionary explorations of two very gifted and perceptive musicians.
