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

VITNE: “Aria” – oozes awesomeness from start to finish!

VITNE’s music has influences ranging from 80’s glam metal and power metal, to folk and classical RPG-soundtracks. His latest concept album “Aria”, was written, to sound and feel, beginning to end, like the experience of a Japanese-style epic RPG. While I have always been a fan of VITNE’s off-the-rails creativity and complexity, I find their songwriting to be at its strongest on this album. Overall, “Aria” is the most balanced, enjoyable, accessible, and striking recording by VITNE yet. Realistically speaking, he is no stranger to any style of music within the rock idiom, but this is a plainly unique release, a considerable achievement given the wide-reaching style spanning VITNE has done in the past. However, it still retains the wholly captivating sound that he has pioneered over the course of the last few years.

VITNE (Lead and backing vocals, flute, fife, guitar, bass, piano, orchestration, production), Julian Angel (Lead guitar) Nigel Rios (Drums) and Max Saidi (Drums on “Fever Dream” & “Vanquish the Night”), have an ability to barge through all preconceived notions of song structure and sound, by virtue of sheer kinetic energy and a maddening splurge of ideas.

The instrumentation which oozes awesomeness from start to finish, is achieved via a certain craftiness of hand and mind. The players’ technical highs are preposterously stunning, and their servings of some utterly incredible moments casts an aura of brilliance over a whole record.

“Aria” typifies VITNE’s adventurous forward-thinking approach, and encompasses racy rhythms, lyrical melodies, epic themes, soaring vocals and harmonies, organic instrumentation, scorching chord progressions, virtuoso guitar solos, melting-pot song structures, and crushing drum patterns, which are all characteristics of their sound.

What makes “Aria” special is the hard rock influence which is characteristic of all the band’s work. This comes through in the album’s rockier passages, which have a real sense of purpose, and demonstrate a unity of focus and collective effort.

At times, melodies unfold by twists and turns which are breathtaking, and at other times, they burst out of the box immediately, and are capable of mesmerizing any listener within earshot. On the whole, the album is for those who believe fervently that rock needs more ambitious deviants.

The album starts quietly with the piano and strings driven “Whispers of Another World”, before exploding with the bone-crushing “Escape”, where the high-flying choruses and guitar runs, breathe menacingly down the back of your neck. Moving forward, the rhythms, melodies, and arrangements just get more interesting with every listen.

“Turn Back Time” and “Encephalon” keeps the momentum going with chunky riffs, explosive shredding and anthemic choruses that are hard to resist. A point of note is VITNE’s vocals, which are nothing short of spectacular all throughout this album – the highs, the lows, and even the ultra-high passages are treated with equal domination.

Moreover his songwriting brims with originality and extreme creativity. “Fever Dream” drops the rhythm section and rides on pure melody for the opening, before switching up into crunch mode, loading all the band’s firepower.  “Ascension” will take you on a mesmerizing voyage into another dimension. The sheer musicality lifts you right up and puts you in the story.

From the opening notes of this album, the listener knows they’re in for something far outside of the ordinary. And it only gets better and better from there. Going through the quieter sections of “Horizon” brings to the Yes-flavored rocker, “Our Way”, and then onto the eloquent and stripped down “Nocturne”, dominated by a combination of piano and vocals.

“Vanquish The Night” and “Requiem” takes us back to the brimstone and fire, of the solid euphoria VITNE and company are capable of unleashing. In closing, “Aria” is the whole package – not concept over technique, technique over emotion, or emotion over substance. It is simply uncompromising in its artistic integrity. This is a fantastic, flawless album which is also, so far, my favorite rock record for 2019.
