“Millions” shows off how talented and self-assured DboySlim is!

“Millions”, the track by DboySlim, has an incendiary takeoff, wasting zero time to underscore the necessary sense of urgency through a compacted sonic boom and a room full of booty. The backdrop is made of a dynamic piano loop, skittering hi-hats, and twisting synths, while the rapper updates his dance-swaying lyricism. DboySlim is impressive to say the least, while the track absolutely bumps. He creates an intense atmosphere that makes you want to jump around and groove. “Millions” shows off how talented and self-assured DboySlim is, and how he can probably live up to any hype you want to put

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

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.

W.B. and The Geezers – “Bits and Pieces” takes the listener to a level that is rarely heard in Country anymore

After hearing W.B. and The Geezers for the first time in 2015, I’m glad Nashville hasn’t found them yet. These fellas make real country music, and not that canned stuff the radio sells you. W.B. and The Geezers is comprised of two Navarre area musicians – William Lake and Bill Crouch. Their past works have included songs about senior dating, the laughable and ridiculous ED commercials, but that’s just on the surface. They have always explored the deeper themes involved with the experience of getting older, and they invite you to listen and embrace it as well. Their latest, and third album, “Bits and Pieces”, is described as “Country/Americana with a touch of Wild Grass”. So if you’re tired of trying to dodge all the noise on the radio today that’s coming out of Nashville, and long for the old days of real country writing, singing and instrumentals, then W.B. and The Geezers and this album specifically is a must have.

The recording kicks off with a hip-swaying groove called “Dixie (Remix)”. But that’s just a prelude to the real stuff that gets going with the fiddle and banjo-filled anthem, “Road to Nowhere”.  If you wear bedazzled jeans and foreign made boots to your weekly line dancing class, then stick to your corporate cowboy crooners. If it’s the authentic thing you want, then turn up the resonant sound of the title track, “Bits and Pieces”, with its thoughtful narrative and easygoing melody.

There isn’t a subject that country music hasn’t featured before. However, there is a quality to W.B. and The Geezers song writing that takes the listener to a level that is rarely heard in Country anymore.

Possessing a rich country baritone, W.B. and The Geezers take us across a witty storyline with “Don’t Tell Me You Love”, which teaches us to accept people for what they are, before they switch to “Weekend Angel (Remix)” that takes a sensible look at the lives of truckers.

An album of this consistent quality doesn’t merit a selection of stand-outs but we must highlight the impeccable vocals and melody on the ballad “Tell Me Lie”. “Barney Fife of the TSA” is a tongue in cheek look at the certified body searchers of transport security, and it will certainly put a smile on your face. Up next is the slow-burn strum of “When The Bottle Call’s Your Name”, which is pretty self-descriptive and a common affliction.

It remains to be seen if the world of country music embraces W.B. and The Geezers with quite the same vigor as is reserved for their radio-ready peers. However, these guys have literally worked their butts off to present their brand of music, and there is no better testimony to this than on “Spirit of the Rockies” and “Father Time”, where W.B. and The Geezers lay all their artistic wares out on the table.

All-round, “Bits and Pieces” is an honest and introspective set of songs that establishes W.B. and The Geezers as artists who aren’t afraid to evaluate who we are, and how and why we are, what we are.

They possess a sense, not only of self, but of the world around them and aren’t afraid to let us in with songs that are forthright, meaningful, and some of the finest of the year. Their music and narratives prick just the right nerves. W.B. and The Geezers is the exact shot of country-infused goodness that real country fans need right now.
