DaKing – “CryptoBoom” is a vibe from start to finish!

“CryptoBoom” is the second single by Moscow artist DaKing who is currently working on album which will feature previously unheard of 3D stereo effects. As can be gaged by the title, the song is inspired by escalation of cryptocurrencies. DaKing falls into the category of nu-wave rappers. You can hear a bit of his flow, hooks, and ad-lib driven rap style in the music of today’s newest up and comers. DaKing verses have a way of feeling like extended hooks. He loves to chant as his ad-libs swirl in the background. Sometimes he even delivers a rapid-fire flow. The project

Haze Daze – “Shadows” is rich and inviting!

Self-awareness is key, and Haze Daze getting in touch with that allows him to separate himself from the pack, reaching territory where only a handful others reside. But of course his latest track, “Shadows” is also the embodiment of the current culture. The song is the unification of the SoundCloud elite sound and the figures who came directly before, it’s an embracement of that short but rich history. Knowing your strengths or limitations is a skill that few have. Haze Daze on “Shadows”, is not only able to avoid any potential limits, but also accentuate his strengths. The track is

KingQueen embrace a blend of classic and modern rock, pumping out tracks with a lot of driving, frizzled guitar and anthemic harmonies that meet up with laser sharp keyboards, spirited rhythms and INA’s soaring vocals. They wouldn’t be out of place on ‘70s radio, in 80’s stadiums, or 90’s festivals, and on current millennium tours.

They practically have a timeless sound, where every one of their massive song choruses are perfectly designed for singalong experiences and euphoric audience participation. A knack many of their contemporaries hopelessly desire in vain.

A KingQueen song, is an invitation to a truly rocking, full-throttle jamboree that will have jumping up and down the aisles. The band prove on their EP, “Get Loud” that they know what it means to rock – with or without the aid of modern studio technology – weaving beautiful artistry that they are certain to easily perform in a live, concert setting.

Whatever the case, just put a microphone in front of INA and listen to her wail. Of course, the groundwork for the band’s delicious rock-pop foundation, is brilliantly crafted by the instrumentation and the passionate fervor of its players.

The result is this raw, unadulterated grit that crosses genres and anchors itself in cutting-edge modern rock. But take heed, underneath this immense cinematically-inclined, sonic bang, KingQueen harbor a sensitive beating heart, and a strong social consciousness that is laid out in timely fashion throughout the narrative of “Running In Water”.

“Are you living or are you just breathing, when tears are coming down for no reason. Say goodbye to everything you know. Welcome to your new life,” sings INA, as KingQueen invites us to reevaluate what makes us happy, and to not remain trapped in a life design, not of our own making.

The minute I first heard this song, I knew this band was something special. They are loud, triumphant, confident…and still consciously aware of the perils of our society. At the same time, frontwoman INA, has one of the most incredible voices currently prancing around her genre.

It’s a surprising that the band don’t yet get the mainstream exposure they so thoroughly deserve, but then again I’m happy for KingQueen to circle around the mainstream as sort of highly guarded indie secret.
