Heistheartist – “Boom” (Love Version) – transposes crystal-clear artistry through spiritual glistening

Heistheartist is an American Christian singer-songwriter from Central Islip, NY. Formerly a secular neo-soul singer signed to Bentley Records under his biological name LeeMann Bassey, Heistheartist discovered that his true calling was with the Lord, after hearing an inspiring sermon by TD Jakes online one day. That day he was inspired to teach the world about the Lord like TD Jakes did with his Sermon, but through music. The song “Boom” – a song that mixes sensuality with religion – is actually based on a dream that Heistheartist had one night, in which he had relations with an angel. “Boom”

Bobby Royale – “Live Jazz at Staarsound” – There is an artistic quality in the music that cannot be overlooked

Some see hip-hop and jazz as an unholy alliance, maybe even the vulgarization of jazz. But other musicians see the genre-melding as a positive development. Every so often, in some corner of the globe in fact, you’ll find a handful of jazz musicians experimenting with jazz and hip-hop hybrids. In some ways the musical connection would seem inevitable. After all, early gospel, blues and jazz employed call-and-response cadences dealing with the same themes prevalent in hip-hop today. For some, though, the similarities end there. Straight ahead jazz musicians who have had their music sampled appreciate their work being exposed to

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

Andy Pett – “Dumb Love” is a punchy, bouncy hip-hop track soaked in a lyrical edge

One of my favorite rap artists of late. Norwegian Andy Pett’s music speaks from the heart, to the heart. His tracks are infectious and his lyrics inspiring. From beginning to end you get a picture of what it means to be a normal person with issues. The whole point of Andy’s music is that we are all in the same boat. Whether a rapper or a high school kid or a middle aged white guy working in a bank, everyone struggles with the same issues – forgiveness, lust, faith, guilt, failure and feelings of unworthiness. Andy’s previous single release, “Back Again” gave us a close up taste of what it’s like to fall, struggle and get back up on your feet again. This was a serious Andy Pett, pouring his heart and soul out to his audience about his trials and tribulations.

Now on his brand new single “Dumb Love”, Andy shows us another side of psyche. Though a bittersweet tune about a failed relationship and getting dumped, throughout, Andy’s sense of humor and ability to not take himself too seriously shines through making the song a genuine pleasure to listen to.

Raw honesty and tremendous creativity are two of the most striking aspects of this work. The production is top notch, the energy is high, and Andy is one of the best in the genre right now, when it comes to clever wordplay and captivating storytelling.

“You know, I’ve had my heart broken like three times now? And I don’t know, I guess if I want to attract women like flies, I’ll have to be a dirt bag.” That’s how this song kicks off, giving you an early warning of the tongue in cheek candidness Andy Pett is preparing on this track.

“Dumb Love” is a fun kind of quirky track with the encouragement to be open-minded people when listening, as Andy weaves his stinging tale of bombed out relationships and the wrong kind of women. The rapper’s crisp bars deliver well, with transparent, witty, and at times cryptic lyrics, as Andy often buries layers of hidden messages and motifs under the surface of his rhymes.

In fact Andy revealed that the song is also about not being willing to reflect on your own faults. “Something that is true for most people in more settings other than just love and relationships,” he concluded.

He also hinted at the fact that “Dumb Love” is loaded with references to well-known pop artists, old school rappers, world events and political madness.” So keep your ears pinned to the speakers for giveaways. With his mixture of realness, and authentically sharp writing, Andy makes a good case as to why this is a great track.

“Dumb Love” is a punchy, bouncy hip-hop track soaked in a lyrical edge. Andy Pett frantically spits cadences over playful keyboard licks and a hip-shaking beat, talking about: “I don’t wanna play the game of love, I wanna be faithful.” Considering the misogynistic boasting that is prominent in the hip-hop scene, this is a revolutionary statement.

The song is crafted to build into a layered up-tempo jam. Andy Pett’s single “Back Again” is certainly one of the standout tracks of the year, and now with “Dumb Love” he shows off another side of his maturity, in both rapping and songwriting.

Saying Andy Pett is a talented rapper is a little bit of an understatement, as he can spit lyrics out at a phenomenal rate when he wants. Moreover, he can be playful, heartfelt and inspiring on the turn of a dime. That’s something special right there, its time you get into it!
