Berani – “Cut And Taste” strikes an incredible balance of disparate elements

Berani is an electronic beat maker with a diverse sound spectrum and a tendency to produce bouncing rhythms or spacious and relaxing aural experiences. In a short time span, this emerging artist out of Byron Bay in Australia, has discerning music fans and casual listeners paying attention. The sound design throughout his latest single “Cut And Taste” is what we’ve come to expect from this creative top tier producer: popping percussion, basslines that melt like butter and a healthy dose of twisted horns to make everything bump in a soul-like fashion. Sprinkled around the track are sonic effects that keep

EsZ – “Liquor & Emotions” – introspective and emotional

Hip-hop has been cranking out bangers and high energy anthems for decades, but the average genre historian is well aware that dark or emotional thoughts on a chill backdrop is not a foreign concept for the game. After all, profound moodiness feels rather natural for a culture that grew out of urban plight and the trauma of purposely disenfranchised people. It makes sense that at least some mellow tunes in the genre, reflect deep-thinking speculation, in what artist EsZ, describes as thoughts on “life, growth and fake friends” in his track “Liquor & Emotions”. The song is a drunk text

Acemattz & Bipha shine on “Tshanana”

Watching Acemattz & Bipha perform in any of their videos is like watching friends realize they’re onto something big time. They are accomplished rappers individually, on their own terms, and as collaborators, as a unit, their styles gel perfectly. They’re not just comfortable performing together—they are feeding off of each other, refusing to be one-upped, beaming and grinning and head-bobbing as they take turns impressing one another. By the end of each of their performances, their formation into a real show-stopping combination seems inevitable. In the new wave rap scene, there is plenty of talent to go around, Acemattz &

FuzzKill – “The Get Better” reaches all the expected heights!

FuzzKill is a four-piece rock band that started in Boston, MA. Introduced to one another through musical theatre, the band’s sound is firmly rooted in early 2000’s pop-punk influences. They released their debut studio album, “Happen”, in early 2019, and their sophomore album, “The Get Better”, just dropped on September 19th 2020. We have all heard the biggest punk bands of the 90’s and early 00’s. Their music mainly consisted of driving drums, distorted pop-punk guitar work and a set of memorable lyrics to go with the angst-filled high energy vocals. Today punk bands are a rarity, and any good

There’s a lot to appreciate on the new album, and Dan’s voice is arguably the most attractive aspect. Moreover, his vocals are often enhanced by inspiring songwriting and raw emotion, not to mention a wealth of down to earth acoustic guitar strumming. Dan Friese has an organic,

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’

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

Tyler Noel & Producer Sam Randle Deliver The “Remedy” Remixes!

A native of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Tyler Noel began singing at the tender age of five in the church choir. At the age of 12, Noel began her professional music career when she joined the girl group, Solo Tre. The group was signed to acclaimed producer Derek Baker, also known as Bigg D, who is known for producing Jamie Foxx’s hit, Unpredictable.

After singing with Solo Tre for two years, Noel then joined the girl group Synphony, which was created by songwriter and producer Troy Bell. Within a couple years, the five piece group, Synphony had become a trio and by the time Noel was 18, the thought of being a solo artist was burning in her mind.

With plans to attend college, fate had different plans for her when she suffered a severe partially paralyzing stroke, which left her barely able to speak at the age of 18. Her determination, love for music, and support from her father, who she credits as her best friend, allowed her to prevail against the odds and continue her musical journey at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida where she studied music with a concentration in vocal performance. 

Noel is inspired by the memory of her father, who passed 2007, and her life experiences in the streets of Florida.

“I write and sing about my life and that’s why my songs are instantly relatable,” says Tyler Noel whose vocal idol is gospel icon Karen Clark Sheard. She also adores all genres of music ranging from Mozart and Bach, to Gwen Stefani and Sarah Mclachlan, to Donny Hathaway and Brandy.

The unsigned artist gearing up to sign with a major label has an album in the works and has had a smash single with “I Can Do Better” featuring a hypersexual duet with R&B sensation Pleasure P formerly of Pretty Ricky. The song also features the production artistry of Lil Ronnie (Brittany Spears, Bow Wow, & R. Kelly). In the meantime Noel dropped another single called, “Remedy” which has no less than three versions, the original, plus two House remixes featuring Producer Sam Randle.

Tyler’s story is bursting with up’s and downs, achievements as well as disappointments. “Singing is a source of healing for me. If it’s not real, how can I expect other people to believe it?” One thing remains constant to all who know and love her as family, friend, or fan: her sincerity.

Things get off to a great start with the Sam Randle produced “Remedy”. It bears all the hallmarks of a great production style which is also why it’s so enjoyable. The song is a real grower, boasting a strong melody with a thumping rhythm and powerful vocal interpretation by Tyler. After a few listens you’ll be hooked. It’s not bombastic and overblown, yet it’s energetic, frisky and frivolous with some sparkling backing vocals to match.

“Remedy”, could easily be an instant club hit with its rapidly changing tempos and feel, the hypnotic beat and Tyler’s voice, which, dripping with pure emotion, will take your soul places that it’s never quite been.

Tyler Noel is obviously not just about “Remedy” though, songs like “Tell It To My Heart” which a knockout song and my personal favorite, “Lights On”, “Control”, “Messed Up” and “Kiss The Floor” will completely convince you that the lady is an R&B force to be reckoned with! All the songs are well written, exquisitely produced, and magnificently sung by the lovely and talented Tyler.

It’s amazing how much emotion Tyler puts into her music too. Throughout her songs, she keeps things simple, yet satisfies the complexity and complicity of modern music perfectly. Her undisclosed secret is having a sharp beat, an infectious melody, and a voice that makes your blood sizzle.

I’m glad to say that if you’re looking for a change from the usual slip-slop laden so-called female singers of today, take my advice and get “Remedy”, or any other of Tyler Noel’s songs. Her sultry voice makes love to ballads, and easily lends itself to the danceable tracks.

This is the kind of stuff you light candles too…and there’s no one better to do it with, than Tyler Noel!
