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

Dan Friese – ‘Jane Songs’ is something to be treasured!

Dan Friese is an Oregon-based songwriter, performer and multi-instrumentalist. In April of 2020, he released his debut EP, ‘Happiness’, a collection of self-reflective psychedelic indie-folk tracks.

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

Navi Singh Allures The Listener With His Talent In Deep Verse

Navi Singh is a singer-songwriter, composer, and multi-instrumentalist from New York City. Who blends classical training with popular music sensibilities. Navi can be seen performing in cities throughout the northeast United States, and is currently in the studio preparing to record material for his upcoming album, entitled Runaway Sunshine, and scheduled for release this winter.

Navi began writing songs while studying music in college and began performing at Lower East Side, Manhattan music clubs shortly after moving to the big city. Since then, he has written, performed, and recorded extensively, catching the ears of musicians and fans around the region. As a composer, he has created music for short films, animations, and television spots, as well as custom pieces and arrangements for corporate events. Navi also teaches piano, guitar, and music theory to students of all ages in his private studio.

It is hard to be anything but upbeat and happy when listening to Navi Singh. The mesh of smooth guitar, great vocals, and even better lyrics make his music really easy to listen to. He’s a passionate singer with a great range, a competent guitar player, and a gifted lyricist. He keeps his melodies clear and simple which allows him to flex the emotions of his voice and lets the listener explore the depth and weight of his lyrics.

Navi Singh has released some demos while he works on his official  upcoming  releases. The three acoustically driven tracks are “One Taste of Sweet Love”, “Shoot and Run” and “Turning World is Over Turning”.

So just where do you put Singh’s music? What kind of music does he play? Is it Folk, Acoustic Rock, Americana, Country Rock or something along those lines. The fact is, you can’t put it anywhere. Navi Singh has created his own style. His absorption of multiple genres has fused together. It’s the type of music you can listen to and reflect on yourself through innovative musical theory and imaginative lyrical poeticism.

Singh’s music is not complex. It’s original. And because it’s not complex, anyone can appreciate it. He uses basic chord progressions but allures the listener with his talent in deep verse. As far what makes him distinctive goes, I guess it would have to be his voice, or maybe his guitar style. It’s really hard to decide. That’s what makes him so intriguing. You can attempt to compare him to other artists, but really he has a sound all of his own. His music is for everyone. There is no one who won’t appreciate it.

When days are pretty stressful and people get on your nerves, Singh’s music is a great choice for chilling out. Sometimes it is good to take a break from electric distortion and screaming vocals and just take a second listen to how beautiful a guitar can sound and enjoy the chill factor of this music.

He is so relaxed, but takes nothing for granted and it definitely shows through his music. Those who don’t see the genius in Singh’s soulful simplicity are missing the point. What appears to be a bunch of somewhat repetitive chords and basic rhythm structures is really a collection of unique textures and moods that are conveyed so beautifully, they’ll move you. Navi Singh’s songs are raw and genuine goods – no additives thrown in! He is the real deal. He pulls no punches and he ain’t faking it.
