Abeille (meaning ‘honeybee’ in French) is an indie jazz-pop duo out of Nashville and Portland. 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

Alysha Releases Official Video for “David Attenborough”

A bit over a month ago, London born Alysha, a 17 year old teen with enormous talent as a singer and songwriter, would have probably not imagined for her career to catapult in such a sort of magical way.

We hear many stories of singers that were many times turned down by the industry, one that said industry sometimes gets a tough reality check, when they realize that the artist is now a superstar (on a different

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”

After a short hiatus the Stockholm based-producer duo are back with new mature sound, having teamed up with singer Dustin Paul for their collaboration Triumphant.  Axl & Arth have been releasing music consistently since their debut single in 2015 and going through their track list on Spotify you quickly get the idea that the duo likes to experiment with genres, mash them together and never corner themselves. “Well, we don’t want to be typecasted I suppose,” says Axl. “We like to just create whatever feels right at a given moment and what inspires us differs from one day to another.

The latest video by Bad Bones – “Midnight Rider”

The latest video by Bad Bones, “Midnight Rider”, once again consolidates the hard rock band’s load of relentless energy. Lead singer Max Malmerenda sounds better than ever – his vocals right high up in the mix – and the venerable guitar of Sergio Aschieris cuts through with conviction.  Lele Balocco delivers a smart mix of speed and traditional classic hard rock drumming, while brother, Steve Balocco’s bass-rumble drives Bad Bones’ rhythm as always. Die-hard fans of hard rock and metal will embrace this, and those with an appreciation for the qualities that make contemporary rock and metal compelling along with an acknowledgement that the melodic leanings of the 80’s power sounds were integral in pushing the message to a broader audience will find “Midnight Rider” both technically and stylistically stunningly authentic.

“Midnight Rider” may just be my favorite song on the “High Rollers” album – both lyrically and musically – because it has the classic hard rock riffage that is just so irresistible. The guitar solo in this song alone is so classic that you would swear you’ve stepped back in time. You hardly hear this kind of playing style anymore.

Bad Bones have made a super heavy record with hooks and grooves in all the right places. One minute you are banging your head then the next you are singing the chorus. The choruses often utilize rhythm-intensive, lunging riffs to spike the adrenaline in favor of sustained chords and a gleaming melody.

A cinematic and empowering song that surges with an anthemic refrain and layers of vocal harmonies, “Midnight Rider’s” surgical, rolling riffs and fills before and after the climactic solo buildup showcases Bad Bones’ ethos of paying attention to every sonic detail.

The first thing you’ll notice about the track, is how insanely huge it sounds, as the band draw out their finest, most fiery performances imaginable. “Midnight Rider” is ruthlessly contemporary and gleams with an almost classic polish, delivering more punch per square sonic second than most of the band’s contemporaries have wielded in a long time.

But as dazzling and monstrous as the production is, Bad Bones’ true brilliance lies in the song performance itself. Comfortable in their tee-shirts and jeans in the video, this is the sound of Bad Bones connecting with what they do best: honing and crafting music until they hit peak hard rock efficacy.

The vocals soar and scream, while the rhythm section is tighter than two coats of paint. And it’s all done and dusted within four and a half minutes. That’s all the time Bad Bones need to deliver hard rock in its untainted form, and with a confident attitude. It’s the sound of a band treading familiar territory and paying homage to the past, while sounding relevant and looking to the future.

“Midnight Rider” is an excellent single supported by a video clip that further validates Bad Bones’ claim to classic hard rock authenticity in today’s musical climate. The band’s performance proves that Bad Bones pack some heavy artillery and can hit the target – bullseye on every shot!
