INTERVIEW: C.E.N. – the voice of the people

Born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and currently a resident of Dallas, Texas, C.E.N’s natural proficiency over poetry allowed him to produce meaningful and profound lyrics. Although he initially took the initiative to become a music artist for fame and fortune, he later realized that all he desires as a musician is to be respected and valued for the art he brings to the table. His music is deep lyrically and spiritually. Can you tell us a bit about where you come from and how you got started? C.E.N.: I was born in Oklahoma City, OK, and was raised in a

Hitrocker – “Project One” – breathtaking sound design!

Hitrocker is a German based producer who creates mainly within the EDM subgenres of House, Electro and Deep House. His first album, entitled “Project One” was released at the end of July, while “Project Two” is also out now. When I clicked on the playlist of “Project One”, I was met with song titles that were merely numbers – such as “Project 1.1” or “Project One.Four”. This falsely led me to expect generically themed instrumentals, simply meant to rock the dancefloor. Wrong. Well not totally. They do rock the dancefloor. But they also do a whole lot more. These are

Rashod Holmes Announces New Single ‘The One’

The soul singer relives how he met his wife and started his family on a tender new song. Rashod Holmes is known for bringing romance to life with his evocative voice, but he has never told as personal a story as the one he tells with his latest single. ‘The One’ is a true life love story that acknowledges the struggles and triumphs that go into building a long-lasting relationship. “I found the one for me” Rashod sings. “She is the girl of my dreams.” While Rashod is convinced that he has found the perfect partner, there is much more

Billy Ray Rock – “Get The Funk”- hitting up all the classic tenets of funk

Washington State Singer-Bassist, Billy Ray Rock, plays more than 10 instruments and produces and performs every instrument you hear in his music. From Rock to R&B and Dance, Billy delivers them all. His single “Get The Funk”, simply adds another delicious flavor to his sonic menu. His unearthly bass chops, resonant vocal wobble and inner funk DNA is scorching hot, while it straddles the genre’s trademark grooves. Blaring horns and slapping drums accompanies the party-styled adlibs, as the track treads its momentum. If you’re looking the glossy high-tech dance-club funk perpetuated by bands like Chromeo, then this is not the

Vincent Krennerich – “Verlassene Stadt” – plenty of delicate aural color

Vincent Krennerich is a composer, songwriter and pianist from Germany. The artist, who has featured on our pages before, has released his double-side single, entitled, “Verlassene Stadt”, which translated, would mean ‘abandoned city’. The second track, contained in this set, is called “Morgengrauen”, which in English, would mean ‘dawn’. However if you heard these compositions, there would be no need to translate them, as Krennerich’s music describes itself rather poignantly. Though stripped back and basic solo piano, the key to the success of both these recordings, is the propensity Vincent Krennerich has in composing subtly fine melodies. Both tracks have

Hybrid Blues fuses stellar musicianship, heartfelt songwriting and soul-stirring vocals

Out of Aotearoa (New Zealand), Hybrid Blues are a 4-piece band, made up of Mike Everard (guitars, vocals), Adam Pendred (bass), Mark Schaumann (drums) and award winning front-man, singer-songwriter Roy Hudson. The band signed to SGNB Records USA, has just released its self-titled blues-based album. No two songs on “Hybrid Blues” sound the same. The record not only showcases Roy’s abilities as a singer and a songwriter, but also highlights the wide range of influences that have impacted on his music. The album takes you in so many different dynamic directions that it can feel a little dizzying, while the

Marshall Artz Productionz – “Go Missing” ft. SeanQ – is incredibly hypnotic, with crystal-clear production

Released Aug 28th, “Go Missing” Prod. by Marshall Artz Productionz, is the producer’s 3rd single release since June. The track will be featured on his upcoming 2021, self-titled LP “Marshall Artz Experiment”. The song features singer-songwriter SeanQ, from Dallas, Texas. The producer’s blend of R&B-inspired neo-soul and smooth chill sounds becomes its own entity within the hip-hop and urban music world. Marshall Artz Productionz work should gain high appraisal through its colorful and subtly amped vibes that play to any genre lover’s ears alike. After listening to this track, I expect that the outpouring of demand for more of the

Evie Calabasas – “STARGIRL” – strong, sensitive vocals and soul-baring songs

Evie Calabasas is a 20 year-old singer and songwriter. She started playing guitar at the age of 6 and started singing at 15 years old. After attempting to be part of band on numerous occasions, Evie finally opted for a solo career. Her first solo project, the 3 track EP “STARGIRL”, has its title inspired by the first song she ever played live.  It is a tempered and exceptional record. It shakes, rattles and rolls with minimal, almost absent percussion, a dominantly strummed acoustic guitar and occasional keyboard interludes. Above all, is Evie Calabasas’ voice, which delivers an untethered, sweetly

Her other influences or inspirations

Sound Therapy: The Awakened Alpha Chakra

Never heard of the Awakened Alpha Chakra Suite? Well up until now, neither had we.
So now you’re wondering if it’s a new album by the Red Hot Chilli Peppers or if you’ll find it on the Billboard Top100 charts?
The answer is no on both counts and to be perfectly honest and downright audacious, this CD compilation cannot even be considered music, in the strict sense of the word.
So what is this album doing in a music magazine?
Well music is made up of sounds, and this CD manipulates and produces sounds in such a way, that it could quite possibly improve and have a very positive effect on your lifestyle.
And that’s music to our ears!
So what is Awakened Alpha Chakra then?
Well it is sound therapy that has to do with “Alpha” Meditation.
And what is “Alpha” meditation?

Alpha brain waves operate between 8 and 13 cycles per second. This brainwave frequency occurs during day dreaming, fantasizing and creative visualization. This brainwave frequency is often associated with a deeply relaxed state, and with light trance or meditation. It can make for a very refreshing and relaxing “break” during the day, especially when times are stressful.

Dr. Jane Maati Smith C.Hyp. Msc.D., describes The Awakened Alpha Chakra Suite CD, which includes a 9 page eBook with complete information about the Chakras which can help you relieve stress and it’s symptoms, to be a very special CD indeed.

It is programmed with binaural beat brainwave entrainment, a sound therapy technique that is very powerful. It has been shown that brainwave entrainment is highly effective at inducing meditative and states. This is a great break through for anyone who wants to meditate, but did not have the time or teacher to learn how.

This type of meditation is also more effective than usual meditation because of the brainwave entrainment; this program can help induce a deep, Alpha level of meditation, leaving you with a feeling of deep peace and balance.

One important note: headphones or earbuds must be used for the binaural beat frequencies to be effective, and it works best to get them on the correct ears (right on right, left on left) Also, this is a deep meditative brainwave entrainment program, so play it safe; no driving, drinking, using heavy machinery, cooking, or supervising small children. Just lay back, relax, close your eyes, and get ready for one of the most unique and powerful Chakra meditations you will ever experience!

The tones will progress up, from the Root Chakra to the Crown, spending about 4-5 minutes at each. You may actually feel something at each point, experience the release of trapped emotions, physical feelings, vibrations, euphoria… each individual experience will be different, and your personal experience may not be the same each time, as you progress on your path of spiritual growth.

The frequencies used in this program are not only attuned to the Chakras, but also to the Earth… the brainwave entrainment tones progress along what are called the Shumann Resonances. The Shumann Resonance is the magnetic frequency of our planet Earth. The goal is, to not only realign your energy to the correct Chakra balances, but also to realign you to a feeling of balance with the planet. This is not music as you may be used to; it is pure healing tones using Tibetan singing bowls and ancient Solfeggio frequencies.

Remember, you must wear headphones to reap the benefits of this program, and it works best to get them on the correct ears (right on right, left on left) Also, this is a deep meditative brainwave entrainment program, so play it safe; no driving, drinking, using heavy machinery, cooking, or supervising small children. Just lay back, relax, and close your eyes for a well deserved break!

The Awakened Alpha Chakra Suite has had rave reviews from meditation enthusiasts and sound therapy fans alike, confirming the claim that this CD could almost certainly improve and enrich the quality of your lifestyle.

Which, quite frankly speaking, offers a lot more than what’s currently available on the Billboard Top100 charts.
