Bobby Royale – “Live Jazz at Staarsound” – There is an artistic quality in the music that cannot be overlooked

Some see hip-hop and jazz as an unholy alliance, maybe even the vulgarization of jazz. But other musicians see the genre-melding as a positive development. Every so often, in some corner of the globe in fact, you’ll find a handful of jazz musicians experimenting with jazz and hip-hop hybrids. In some ways the musical connection would seem inevitable. After all, early gospel, blues and jazz employed call-and-response cadences dealing with the same themes prevalent in hip-hop today. For some, though, the similarities end there. Straight ahead jazz musicians who have had their music sampled appreciate their work being exposed to

J.Drive – “Untitled” showers the auditory canvas with musical ideas

Hailing from the inner city of Youngstown, Ohio’s Southside, Jessie “J.Drive” grew up in a small apartment in a violent neighborhood without his natural mother or father.  At a very young age he realized that his natural affinity for basketball and Hip-hop music would become the tools necessary to pave his way to a more comfortable lifestyle.  Despite the tragic events that ended his hoop dreams, Jessie’s understanding of what it takes to make the best of his gifts regardless of circumstances is what has brought him thus far. Currently he is pushing his latest single called “Untitled”. In his

“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

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

Shari Rowe Releases Inspiring New Single, “The Heavy”

Country artist Shari Rowe delivers a message of conviction in her newest single, “The Heavy,” a song of awakening meant to encourage listeners to be a helping hand to those who need it most. “We wrote ‘The Heavy’ to inspire,” says Shari Rowe. “We can all relate. Getting that news, feeling that pain, losing sleep over the things we see in the world, grieving the loss of loved ones. ’The Heavy’ comes into our lives in many ways, and we have the power to lighten the load for each other. We all have opportunities, big or small, to be the

Priscilla: Singing and Dancing Her Way From Brazil To Los Angeles!

Brazilian singer-songwriter Priscilla will make her US debut in 2014. The video for the first single “See U on the Dance Floor,” choreographed by acclaimed dancers Dionne “Loca De Jamaica” Renée (Shakira, Usher, Chris Brown, Sean Paul) and Lorenzo “Zagga Zo” Hanna (Nicki Minaj, Snoop Dogg, MGK), could make the perfect platform to showcase the latin beauty’s dance skills and was recently  showcased on Extra Tv plus across our very own music network.

Born in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, Priscilla first discovered her passion for performance at the early age of 6. Later on, she began performing regularly at the famous Brazilian theatre, Teatro Marília, and ultimately appeared on a number of Brazilian television shows.

Priscilla’s single-parent upbringing was not an easy one. So at age 17, she left her home country of Brazil and relocated to Portugal where she attended college and acquired a master’s degree in Clinical Psychology. But Portugal never felt right for the budding young starlet – she always knew there was only one place in the world where she could fully realize her dreams. So shortly after graduating, at age 22, she decided to move to Los Angeles in order to pursue her passion for music.

Priscilla, who currently resides in Los Angeles with her two dogs, Billy and Suzy, immediately caught the attention of a producer which resulted in her recording an EP of her own songs.

Listening to the new Priscilla single is a fun, sexy, tongue in cheek experience – but despite the obvious hooks, the sing-along choruses, and the perfectly timed beats, there also lies a certain depth and soul in the lady’s artistic repertoire.

The techno-europop-esque “See U on the Dance Floor”, doesn’t try to be an avant-garde, snooty, stuck up, pseudo-intelligent single, like some of the other dance-music Divas are currently promoting. It just stays slick, solid, edgy…and yes, very danceable!

In a nutshell, Priscilla just gets the job done with her natural charm and without pretentiousness. Fortunately, being Brazilian, gives her an unfair advantage – she has those sensuous Latin rhythms running through her bones since birth. So it’s no surprise that her style is red-hot and smoking right out of the box.

The beat, mix, and vocals come together excellently on this debut single written and performed by Priscilla, giving us a small taste of her potential. She also supports the song with a frivolous and energetic video directed and produced by Moses Israel, to completely convince us to see her on the dance floor.

Priscilla is on an exciting debut with her infectious, carefree dance song, produced by Boy Reckless and only time will tell how bright her star will be allowed to shine in the musical galaxy. In the meantime you can be sure that she’ll “See U on the Dance Floor”!
