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”

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.

Ren Daversa: “SALTWATER” – on some kind of righteous mission!

San Diego-based singer songwriter, Ren Daversa is a working musician, who also spends a fair amount of her time playing her music on a volunteer basis. She is always happy to donate her talents to fundraisers, charity and awareness events. Influenced by artists like Cold War Kids, Tori Amos and Jeff Buckley, to classical, rock and country music, she is proud to present her 9 track album, entitled “SALTWATER”. Awesome. This is an overused word for the most part, but in this case, awesome, is the right one. This is a perfect record, for what Daversa, conceptually and artistically, set out to do. These are all great songs, blending pop, folk and indie-rock flavors. Ren’s voice is sultry and smoky, but then turns on a dime and becomes honest and alto. Yes, “SALTWATER” is an incredibly strong collection of songs covering a range of moods and textures.

Ren Daversa is unapologetically unpretentious and she’s on some kind of righteous mission. A beautiful rich voice. A singer-songwriter soul. Lyrical poetry of an emotional touch. Ren is a golden ticket of perfection in singing from the soul. Hence this enriched album of storytelling lingers on the mind and makes one flow with the music. Ren is smooth in execution. Her voice is loud, proud and vibrantly resonant right from the poignant opening track, “Oceans Of You”. The song starts rather gently and tentatively, before exploding into a voluminous, undulating wave of emotion.

Ren Daversa refuses to do what modern music juggernauts do in spades; pander to stereotypical narratives, under-utilize the instrumentals and downright hijack a pop or urban intonation with the intention of being relevant and popular. Ren is here to grab your attention and keep it, but she isn’t here to let you dictate her narrative.

On “Heart To Heart” she makes the music she wants to make, holding onto her folksy roots. And then goes one step deeper on the beautiful and essential organic soundscape of “Cut And Dried”. Ren’s presence behind the microphone is simply a hand in glove fit, times one hundred. “Just One Word” is rhythmically elegant.

Ren is incredible at executing this acoustic guitar-driven upbeat motif, and the production value is almost equally a highlight. And just to prove she can go one better, “Closer” is her rock out anthem. Ren cuts loose both vocally and musically here. Lots of fiery guitars, thumping drums, and layered harmonies, push this track into a euphoric listening experience. Daversa runs the gamut all throughout this record, with up-tempo tracks like this at her disposal.

“Firelight” is another quintessential example of how Ren Daversa simply refuses to pander to the commonplace conventions that plague modern music. Rich organic sounds and plenty of harmonies spread under an expansive melody.

Ren shows a striking amount of empathy for the listener with her conversational tones on “The Upside Down”, before totally mesmerizing her audience with a stupefying vocal performance on “Funny”, showing off her full range.

By the time she closes the album with the finger-snapping rhythm of “Type A”, there is no doubt that Ren Daversa deserves every bit of credit that will undeniably come her way. “SALTWATER” is set to take Daversa up to the next level.
