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

Interview: STRONG A.R.M. – Coming straight out of Brownsville, Brooklyn NYC!

STRONG A.R.M. is the name that describes the 6’2″, 200 plus pound Brooklyn native who is definitely taking on ALL HATERS! It’s a perfect description of his overall attitude. This is one artist that believes anything goes when it comes to his music. He did not choose to do hardcore hip hop, hardcore hip hop chose him! It allows him to say what the hell he wants. Bringing it straight to the front line so your attention is caught and kept. Don’t get STRONG A.R.M. wrong though, that is just one area of hip hop he is good at, he

Thelonious Love – “The Book Of Thelonious” – a tale of universal issues, and personal struggles

Now, more than ever, hip-hop seems to be on a divergent path: two-thirds of its practitioners are mumbling and trapping, while the others opt for the high road by shunning the low-life approach for an intellectual and socially conscious spew. The beauty of music as a historical source; it serves as raw primary material that reveals to listeners the ethos of a particular person or group of people at a particular moment. What of our own time? Some of the most important music of late comes out of hip-hop, where MC’s push the issues to the forefront, forcing us to confront reality and deconstruct the myth that is the American dream. Or any other dream for that matter.  Nobody has recently done it better than Thelonious Love in his latest 10 track effort, “The Book Of Thelonious”, an album imploring us to beware of the false optimism that invades todays dogmatic culture. It’s a tale with chapters of both universal issues, and personal struggles.

“The Book Of Thelonious” is ingenious social commentary, told from a perspective of personal experiences and shows how our culture may be too condescending in accepting the direction of mainstream society, when in fact, masses of people continue to struggle helplessly, hopelessly, within a matrix that leaves their environment and personal lives in utter disarray.

Also, on a more introspective note, Thelonious Love climbs inside his own heart and soul to drag out the demons that plague him. Musically, the album is a homage to both old school hip-hop, with its worked-in live instrumentation, and to the consistent vanguard of modern production technology.

Right from the opening track, Thelonious Love’s game-plan is obvious. He doesn’t attack you with punchlines, he doesn’t growl and scream to get attention, and he’s not obsessed with simplistic hyped-up wordplay.

What Thelonious Love does is rap: which means he cultivates the storyline, he turns up the dirt, he plants the enlightening seeds in your mind, where they will grow as long as you feed them knowledge.

Luck will have it that you can find much of that knowledge in this album. But to fully comprehend and discover which mind-fertilizing lessons Thelonious Love is handing out, one has to really sit down and listen to him unwrap his soul.

“The Book of Thelonious” outlines the artist’s personal story of trials and tribulations, which in turn become universal themes, because those very same struggles are shared by many. Too many, perhaps. There probably aren’t enough superlatives in the English language to describe how satisfying and hard hitting this album really is.

Of course, no amount of uplifting spirit in your rhymes will work alone without some incredible production on the beats. Of which there is plenty to be found here. To pick out standout tracks here is an unenviable task, with so much quality spread around.

Suffice it to say that the apexes on the album, for me, arrive in the form of ‘SHADOWS’, ‘CALLBACKS’ (ft. Megz from Magna Carda), ‘WISH U COULD’, ‘ANYBODY CARE?’ (ft. Moody Bank$), ‘LIFE WORTH CHANGIN’ (feat. Midas Well) and ‘CAN’T CONQUER ME’ (feat. Midas Well).

MORE ABOUT: Songwriter, lyricist and performer, Thelonious Love hails from Houston, where his love for the Arts and writing began. After spending time in the theater, Thelonious found his home in music, relocating to Austin and joining Jurnt Entertainment. He melds southern styles drawn from Austin, Houston, and New Orleans, concocting a medley of sounds with street style production from producer Noah Fendz.
