Kidricc James – “Gravy” – The gravity in the words is matched by the sound of the production!

Texas-based rapper, Kidricc James drops his dynamic new single “Gravy”. The track which has been peaking on Digital Radio Tracker’s Global Top 150 Independent Airplay Chart, is also supported by an engaging video shot in Houston. If I had to give a quick intro into this track, it would be: Great emotional depth in storytelling. Engaging beat. Thoroughly satisfying rap skills. More than just multisyllabic rhymes. Relatable and relevant. I think Kidricc James accomplished his intents with this track. “Gravy”really revolves around him in a much more different way than his prior works.

Ervin Mitchell drops the official music video for ‘Break The Internet’

Emerging rap star Ervin Mitchell reminds us to “count our blessings every day” in the official music video to ‘Break The Internet’. On the track, Ervin Mitchell proves that he is a master at his craft of writing. I also love his style when it comes to his vocal and rapping abilities. His sound is different, laidback, almost melancholic in a way. The track is a beautiful character study that will make you consider the importance of social media, the problem of money, and the meaning of life in general. In a world full of meaningless music, it’s always great

Warchief Rasco – “Good Ones Go To Soon” continues his atmospheric Hip-hop fusion sound!

“Good Ones Go To Soon” is an oath for the real ones I’ve lost in my life from either drugs, violence, or suicide to keep going hard and following the dream while spreading love all at the same time,” says Warchief Rasco. Rasco has a gift for writing concise, infectious earworms. When a track such as “Good Ones Go To Soon” arrives at its conclusion, it leaves a void in the listener that can only be filled by playing the track again and again. The cut has a quality backing instrumental, complete with a reverbed staccato guitar riff and a

Kota Wade Stands Out In Future Moons’ Debut Single ‘Entangled’

Future Moons’ debut single ‘Entangled’ is a gripping, affecting experience, straight away establishing the band as one of the more unique, riveting sounds in alternative rock. Their haunting, vocal-heavy arrangement invokes the dark, sullen stylings of artists like Billie Eilish yet at the same time, they double down on the emotional awareness, each word tinged with the weight of a thousand sentiments. The lyrics of the song detail a passionate connection with a loved one, and the physical expressions that accompany such a spirit. Lead singer Kota Wade’s voice shines through, as her refrain ‘close to you’ echoes between the

Introducing the brand new single: ‘Under Water’ by Max M

Max M is back on the scene with a sizzling hot new release: ‘Under Water’! If you are a fan of artists like Rihanna, Beyoncé, Halsey, and Sia, you’ll love the melodic and fun feel of this track! This song is a very catchy tune, with a very uplifting beat. In addition to that, one of the most distinctive features of the song is the beautiful layering of vocal parts. From the lead vocal to the harmonies, nothing is left to chance here and there is so much attention to detail, making the song even more special and catchy. This

OneUp Duo – “Let Me Come Home” – is such a powerful message!

OneUp Duo is comprised of married couple Adam and Jerome Bell-Bastien. The pair were recently on Season 15 of ‘The Voice’ and secured a spot on Team Kelly as the show’s first ever same-sex duo. The NYC-based couple first met when they were cast in a music video as love interests, after which they fell into a real-life relationship. Bonding over their love of music, they created OneUp Due and have been collaborating ever since.  Though I have heard Adam and Jerome perform brilliantly on other tracks, their latest single, “Let Me Come Home” far exceeded my expectations and is a true gem.

A piano and string driven balled, with a lusciously poignant arrangement, the song openly and honestly affronts the question of unconditional love in a family situation. And it does so using the power of Christmas – traditionally a day that brings families together, and everyone has a stronger sense of belonging.

“My only wish this year is to feel that I belong. So let me come home this Christmas,” sing OneUp Duo. “I just want to come home, to the only family that I know. We can make it if we try. We can accept what we can’t change. No I don’t want to cry, thinking that I let you down. I’m the same boy who you loved, I’m just a man now. So let me come this Christmas.”

This is such a powerful message, and a truly painful predicament that many sons, daughters, brothers and sisters, go through each year. Unconditional love still seems to be one of the most difficult forms of sentiment to concede to another human being. It is in my humble opinion, the absolute Achilles heel of all humanity, the world over – and in many ways at the heart of intolerance.

I can hardly think of a better musical act than OneUp Duo to deliver the message contained in “Let Me Come Home”. Not only because of their open same-sex love, but because they probably have the most gorgeous and impacting voices any duo could possibly have today. OneUp Duo are simply stunning in their vocal performance.

Their voices are naturally suited, and perfectly crafted, to harmonize and execute call-and-response passages that simply soar straight to the soul of the listener. Adam and Jerome are an oasis in the desert of what masquerades as contemporary Soul, R&B and Pop music. I was hooked from the very line on the single, and I have not stopped playing this track since.

OneUp Duo are, without a single doubt in my mind, the most promising vocal duo to emerge in the last 5 years, bar none. Period. “Let Me Come Home” is a tour de force of their talents, which are unlimited. It is a really powerful track that grabs the ears and sweeps them away into a whirlwind of emotion. T

his magnificent single is damn near as close to perfection as any I’ve heard recently. The lyrics are heartfelt, straddling lines of vulnerability, strength and the absolute empowerment of unconditional love. This Christmas, if you need to let one song into your playlist…and heart, “Let Me Come Home”, is the one!
