Andree Cassielll – “Alimento” – a universality that makes him a perfect fit for the modern era!

The Mexico City native, Andree Cassielll, possesses a down-to-earth humility in his vocal tone that makes his storytelling raps feel like they’re always coming from a place of truth over fiction. Considering the producer and artist, predominantly sings and raps in Spanish, which I cannot understand, that’s an impressive feat. The trap-inspired beats flicker in and out as Andree becomes more invested in his storytelling, and it truly feels like you’re on the phone with a rambling friend. He’s a poet, capable of transporting you somewhere otherworldly with his sound. His music has a genuine fluidity, and if he continues

EH – “Mirrors” lets it fly with the fret-board work to thoroughly rock you!

Baltimore rock guitar ace EH reaffirms his top-of-the-heap status on his new 7 track album “Mirrors”. It’s a superlative set of new music full of tightly-written, engaging instrumentals that don’t need a singer up front to rock hard and hold your attention. This type of writing is EH’s trademark, and is one of the main reasons he will develop a audience. While many other technically-proficient rock guitarists mainly play for other guitar players, EH seems to play for the people. He relies less on continuous shredding and more, on dynamically impacting riffs. EH gets us going with his opening track, “Pounding

Boonie Mayfield – “While Black (Red Light, Blue Light, E’s and R’s)” – sentiments nurtured by a history of prejudice

Solomon Vaughn aka Boonie Mayfield has always traded dazzlingly intricate verses, intellectual thoughts and propulsive rhymes, over inventive, nonlinear productions, and his latest release “While Black (Red Light, Blue Light, E’s and R’s)” re-proposes that peerless aesthetic, while adding an ulterior dose of consciousness, and reinforcing his hard-won authenticity. “This song is a 2-part storyteller based on some of my personal experiences with racism; from getting racially profiled by police, dealing with stereotypes while dating and the ugly side of interacting on social media,” explained Boonie. “I was inspired to display some of the scenarios I’ve gone through on a

Sassy Vee – “In My Dreams” has a fantastic chill dance rhythm running its course

Longing, hope, and a need to believe in reality, pour out of “In My Dreams”, the new singer by singer-songwriter Sassy Vee. It’s a clear, accomplished cry from the heart, exorcising its illusions by declaring them bluntly. “In my dreams we’re together. Holding hands and making plans forever. I wish it were true, but I cannot be with you. You have another.” The song introduces Sassy’s strengths: a voice with sultry intensity, songwriting that goes directly to the point and a production that is well aware of both EDM and Pop. The song’s arrangement is lucid and uncluttered, placing all

Maki – “Atlas Hacked” is as substantial as it metaphysical, in its approach

It’s sometimes hard to find the words that accurately bring justice to avant-garde electronic works. With an artist like Maki you almost only have to mention his name for fans of the underground independent scene, to understand the potential for a great album of music. Maki should be an instantly recognizable global name within the mainstream electronic world of sound. His latest release, “Atlas Hacked”, is a classic album in the making. And I do not say this lightly. There is a growing body of research that has examined the impact on adolescents and adults of internet and social media

Dubgee – “Truth” is a prime example of how much of a dedicated artist he is

Doug Tree better known as Dubgee is a rapper, producer, beat maker, and label owner, from Vancouver, Canada. As an old school hip hop head, I’m so thankful that I stumbled on to his latest album “Truth”. Dubgee is a genuine artist and a true musician. Whether the media pays attention or not, at this point there are enough people who can hear the truth – we are witnessing one of the more versatile artists in the genre. Dubgee’s inner confessional memoir style is reminiscent of Eminem. A style that creates descriptively terrifying wordplay, but refrains in his subtle and undoubtedly potent storytelling. Even more effective, is Dubgee’s powerful nuanced presence, making the tracks delightfully more hard-hitting.

“Truth” gives a fierce and talented taste of Dubgee’s range as a rapper. Flexing his bars, the track jumps out with energy. From a creative standpoint, the artist does all he could possibly do. Dubgee has a knack for infusing diverse elements into his music while still crafting Hip Hop at its core. The proof is easily verifiable on the soul-infested bang of “Let the Music Heal Me” ft. Tiago Vasqusz, the instrumental, “Coffee and C.R.E.A.M”, and then the percussive driven “Hustle Harder”.

There is an impressive amount of work done with his vocals, as Dubgee proves himself to be just as capable behind the boards, as he is behind the mic, but it’s ultimately his writing that shines just as bright. I think this is a prime example of how much of a dedicated artist he is. The storytelling on is top-notch, on the inspirational and empowering “Gotta”, which comes just before the Rhythm & Blues inflected instrumental, “Lunch Break”.

“Maria” is another highly lit narrative, showcasing Dubgee’s sharp wordplay and tireless flow. He gets even better on “Time for Some Action” unleashing a flurry of mind-boggling rhymes, without catching his breath. Every line he delivers from the first to the last feels like a roller coaster and machine gun combined.

“Not Enough” keeps the momentum going, before the banging instrumental “Hittin’ My Stride” kicks in. Up next is the eclectic “Off Duty” ft. Jakub Evolved, before the album closes with the Dire Straits sampled “Money’s Worth Nothing”, which also keeps Dubgee’s dazzling lyrical tirades on point with a plethora of verses that are damn near impossible to discredit.

Dubgee has returned with another fresh album chock full of sounds and rhythm, bringing with him some intense flow and great lyrics. Dubgee has created a piece that is made with a lot of effort, care and time. Full of sonically dynamic production that’s always trying to impress with new tricks, Dubgee masterfully does great work with the cards in his deck.

Meanwhile, each featured appearance feels meaningful and enhances the full vision for the track they’re on. For those who’ve been following along with his journey, “Truth” is the culmination of the promise and potential Dubgee has shown throughout the years. The album is consistent with both production and lyrics and can be cemented as one of the artist’s best works.
