D-Witt flexes the pen of a budding cinematic storyteller

I recently heard about an artist called D-Witt from Rockford, IL.  Illinois is the home of some prestigious sons who have left unforgettable marks on hip-hop’s history. I’m expecting an unfiltered rebel who is unafraid to bare his soul and burn down buildings. A fearless heart is a quality that makes fearless art, and I hope that’s exactly what D-Witt has arrived to present us.  So I press play on the first track called “Enemy”. The sound is open and strong-willed. There’s no doubting that D-Witt has something to say. The amount of care that goes into his lyricism stamps

Mortinus – “Star Chariot (Yellow Odyssey)” and “Oceania” – gently beatific music

As the months pass slowly into years, it becomes increasingly plain to all concerned that Danish electronic music producer, Mortinus is taking his craft very seriously. He has been extraordinarily prolific and has maintained an enviable level of quality in his releases. When approaching his two singles “Star Chariot (Yellow Odyssey)” and “Oceania” the question that arises is how will Mortinus sound fare in the altered musical terrain of 2020? Well the two new singles, are fine examples of some of the best ambient, chillout, downtempo and cinematic instrumental music being made today. Mortinus’ sound is alive and well, and his

Cyrus R.O. – “Bones” is still a skillfully crafted song

I think I expected this music to be sterile and methodical. However, to my surprise, Cyrus R.O.’s new single “Bones” from his upcoming debut album “Deconvolution” is blazingly irradiated like bundle of energy that expertly marries the organic and synthetic. Underneath it all, a darker lyrical narrative dealing with “a character struggling with their gender identity, and the fear of social turmoil that comes with that.” Everything just grooves so well together; it’s a blend of sounds that I haven’t heard done this well from any progressive, jazz, or electronic artist in quite some time. It’s a masterful melding of electronic machinery with

Temperature Falls Release The Video For Their Latest Single “1-2-3”

The sound and atmosphere of Temperature Falls is built around somewhat gritty, blended organic-electronic sounding tracks that hearken the listener back to earlier times. Their latest track, ‘1-2-3’, is a seductive track that pulls the listener in with an eerie melody, sultry vocals and an ethereal reverberating atmosphere. Mixed beautifully, this is the perfect example of what to expect from this indie trip-hop/alternative rock duo from Oslo, Norway, made up of vocalist/lyricist Camilla, and multi-instrumentalist Ian J. Ward. ‘1-2-3’ is a gorgeous, melancholic song that is heart wrenchingly beautiful. Temperature Falls is one of those bands that are absolutely necessary

Natalie Jean: “What Would You Do For Love?” – an album with real drama and humanity!

Haitian-American singer-songwriter, Natalie Jean has earned innumerous award nominations, including a 2019 Global Music Awards Medal and was a 2019 Josie Music Awards Winner. A voting Member in the Recording Academy (GRAMMYS), Jean has already released 5 albums and countless singles, many of which focus their attention on empowering and enlightening people. Her ideals, morals, and aspirations run rife throughout her music. Natalie Jean’s latest album “Where Do We Go From Here” begins with a bold statement. The opening song is called “I Told You No” – and explains the artist’s shocking real-life experience of sexual assault. “I made it my first song, because I believed it to be impactful and the most shocking. I wanted others to feel what it is like to be assaulted,” says Natalie. “Some people think that it is the woman’s fault—if they had just done something different or worn something different.”

There is something to be said for Natalie Jean’s beautiful writing and emotional voice here, while the song solidly sets the stage for an emotional bag of issues that bother and affect Natalie, and in general afflict the world at large. The album no doubt, continues the pop powerhouse’s evolution as a raw, honest artist.

She consistently delivers amazing music that stays with me long after my first listening, and things are no different on this album. Many fans will be touched by the contrasts of Natalie Jean’s vulnerability and strengths in this album and praise it for this reason.

Some of my favorite things about Natalie’s work are her mixture of heartfelt lyrics and catchy melodies. “Where Do We Go From Here” delivers undeniably beautiful lyrics, while the music complements them in no uncertain terms.

“Heroes” affronts the theme of gun violence and the impact it has on the lives of children. “A child should be the living the life of a child, not trying to save someone else’s life,” warns Natalie. But she openly discusses everything that has pained and tested her throughout her life, and in “I Am” reflects deeply on how we are superficially judged on the color of our skin.

Natalie returns to the theme of violence on “Numb” and discusses how we’ve become so accustomed to its occurrence that we remain totally indifferent. Wrapped in a driving rhythm, “This House” – co-written with Michael Peloso – looks cuttingly towards the White House and the immigration system.

“Tired” takes stock of everything in this world that desperately fatigues Natalie’s human sensibilities. Moving forward, we find “Mother Earth”, a track that dissects our behavior towards an eco-system in dire need of a different human attitude.

Natalie points her focus towards homeless veterans on “The Forgotten”, and then swiftly switches her attention to female empowerment on “We Rise”. Uncompromising and unstoppable she moves from issue to the next, weaving what slowly seems to become a sort of concept album. Written with Darick Dds Spears, the slow burn of “We Kneel” seeks to throw light on why people are kneeling at football games.

Included into the album are 5 previously written songs that have been revisited in some way to give them a new slant. Among them, the powerful anthem, “What Would You Do For Love?”; “Hands Up” – another look into gun violence against Afro-Americans; “You Don’t Know Me” which ponders the question of shallow relationships; “Love Your Own Power” is clear in its female empowerment – “There’ll be those who will say that you’re just not enough. Keep moving ahead. Love your own power.” Finally, “The Letting Go” is about setting your differences aside, letting go, and starting anew.

All things considered, “Where Do We Go From Here” is a perfect album from an exceptional artist. It is at times a raw autobiographical portrait, and at others, an amalgamation of analysis, rage, and growth in a collapsing and hostile world.  Natalie Jean’s singing has a pleading tone and raspy edges, and it’s growing more expressive with each release.

Natalie demonstrates an abundance of lyrical confidence, resulting in an album with real drama and humanity. Given a bigger platform and increased attention, Natalie Jean is ready to rise to any occasion. I have a feeling she knows exactly where she wants to go from here!
