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

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. And I do not say this lightly. There is a growing body of research that has examined the impact on adolescents and adults of internet and social media

Prodi Lemaj & Skuhd Taylor – “PRESSURE” – a combination of aggressive deliveries mixed with a cool demeanor

Since its beginnings, hip-hop’s most explosive moments have often been its collaborations. When two rappers team up unexpectedly, the results can be compelling. However, when two artists work together frequently they develop a kind of alchemy—everything they’re on together becomes more than the sum of its parts—which is why when you see, see Prodi Lemaj & Skuhd Taylor next to each other on a track-list, you know it’s going to result in something special. It’s those connections—the rappers who keep working on each other—that make rap such a dynamic, versatile genre. Prodi Lemaj & Skuhd Taylor are a duo of

Dago Gil: “Free Dago World Music” Presence and Control over Beats!

Dago Gil was born in New York, moved to LA, and raised in Miami since the age of 12. He is the son of immigrant parents of central and South American decent. From early on he has always had a passion for Latin music and hip-hop. Due to his cultural influences he is able to live and operate freely in both the American and Spanish markets.

His first album released in 2005 entitled “Almost Famous” reminded us it is never too late to seek out your dream and grab hold of it. In his sophomore mix tape “West Side Hialeah Story”, he invites us to recall the places of our youth, the friends we’ve loved and lost in order to appreciate the present. Unable to complete is Untitled Junior album in its entirety; due to his incarceration his family and friends released “Free Dago”.

After a 3-year time sentence he rejoined society more focused and determined to share the Free Dago vision. Dago Gil currently has three tracks riding the crest of the wave off his latest 12-track album, “Free Dago World Music”; the Latino influenced “Envidia”(prod by Flawless Tracks), “Naked” (prod. by Swollen Drumz) and “Push” (prod. by Bravestarr).

I came across Dago just recently when I downloaded one of his mixtapes on Datpiff. I was really impressed with his presence and control over the various beats. While his peers are making cookie cutter mainstream knock-offs, Dago goes deeper in with his lyrics, while staying connected to the streets.

Dago Gil is one of the very few new rappers out there that knows how to tell compelling stories. This is a real man that has something to say about the world. Dago tells stories of struggles from his point of view and real issues that not a lot of rappers are capable of telling convincingly nowadays. Yes, issues such as bad relationships, violence, drugs, and being an underdog have been touched before; however Dago Gil does it in such a real way that it is undeniable that this emcee understands the world in a much broader sense than your regular college kid.

At first listen, Dago Gil is one of the the easiest people to listen to, his voice and personality  needs no warming up to, it is just smooth sailing as the beats and words flow into your head. The production on the album is incredible to say the least, every track is different, which is what I love best about the album. You have some slow burners, but  Dago Gil also shows signs of aggressive wordplay with tracks featuring rough and rugged beats like “Freestyle No Shame”, which just goes to show how lyrically raw Dago Gil is as a true emcee.

The album has some cool dance tracks as well such as “Spaceship” and “Recuerdo” which helps diversify the album a bit more. But the real heartfelt tracks, with stories such as “Do It Like That”, “It’s On Now” and “High Society” is where Dago capitalizes his artistry. Dago Gil raps with such sure-footedness that he positively propels the album as it goes on. His flow is awesome; he can easily switch up at almost any time with no sign of slack. Once again, Dago Gil really knows how to paint vivid pictures filled with social commentary and real positive messages. There is a lot of substance on this album and he is really thought provoking throughout.

I will just say that this is the direction Hip Hop music should be taking. It is really exciting to hear on“Free Dago World Music”, what Dago has in stores for listeners in the future. Dago Gil is just a breath of fresh air in the game!
