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

Max Mazzim – “Stranger” ft. Boogiie Byrd – easily one of the standouts in her catalog

Nothing excels better than excellence. Max Mazzim is a U.S.A based songwriter, actress, and R&B/Pop singer who has managed to defy all odds, reaching a pinnacle of success, while making her mark both on and off the stage in the music and movie industry worldwide.  The multi-nominated and three-time award winner for Best Music Video in the Pop / R&B genre, was discovered and signed in 2008 by George Hookz the CEO of the Str8team Entertainment Record label then based in Germany.

Max Mazzim has never looked back since. The now doctor by day, musician by night, who was raised in a Christian home in Cameroon, West Africa, has blossomed into a passionate R&B artist blending her Afrocentric roots into her international aesthetic.

Max Mazzim’s hit single “Out Ya Body”, formerly “Birthday Love”, featured Reggae Legend Beenie Man, Kirko Bangz and YK Supe. The song gained global attention, especially in France, Russia, Germany, and Cameroon, where she has held major sold out concerts. Her debut album “Un-Veiled”, featured USA Rap Star Mike Jones.

In 2017, Max Mazzim performed in front of two and half million spectators at the 70th anniversary of Brooklyn’s Historic Labor Day Festival. The list of Mazzim’s achievements is almost endless, and also includes ongoing projects, like her Skin Line product SkinGlow by Max & Co Cosmetique, and her originally designed jewelry and clothing line, MaxWoh & Co.

Now in 2020 she takes yet another step forward in an already rewarding career, with the release of her highly anticipated single, “Stranger” featuring Murder Inc/300 Ent artist Boogiie Byrd. The song depicts a woman who finds herself suddenly in love with a stranger, and what unfolds next is portrayed, within the lyrical content.

While fans have been patiently awaiting this release, Max Mazzim has been using her time wisely, quietly becoming one of R&B’s most dependable names. “Stranger” is the type of track where Mazzim shines. She navigates thumping percussion as she leaps the hurdles in her love life. It’s easily one of the standouts in her catalog.

“Stranger” ft. Boogiie Byrd, is sophisticated urban with the sensual style of R&B comfort. Magical. The lightly airy and fuzzy sound melds with Boogiie Byrd’s smooth falsetto creating a seductively mysterious mood, as Max Mazzim slides in on a sultry but determined note: “I just need your lovin’. I just need you baby. Let’s get back to Venus, lovers can’t be strangers.”

So what makes “Stranger” special? The answer is simple. A good melody. Melodies are so important on this type of song because it creates the music’s flow and vibe. It allows Max and Boogii to create an atmosphere that complements the story-line.

Max Mazzim effortlessly exudes sex appeal which is at the forefront of the track. “Stranger” was clearly intended to showcase Mazzim abilities as a fully developed artist, which it does admirably.

Her vocal performance on this track definitely supersedes her last musical offering, and isn’t even overshadowed by memorable lyrics or the first-rate production. Set against the backdrop of summery R&B and hazy contemporary hip-hop soul, Max Mazzim occupies a unique stylistic space.

Moreover, there’s an emotional maturity that’s palpable across this track, as Max Mazzim puts our emotional sensibilities into perspective: romance, like human life, is transient and ephemeral, it needs to be constantly fed to survive and thrive. This is incisive songwriting – all whilst retaining pop-inspired sensibilities. It is this sensibility that underpins the success of “Stranger” ft. Boogiie Byrd.
