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

Rockstar Marcus – “Wavy” – a knack for real melody and a great sense for catchy production

Rockstar Marcus is a melodic/ emo rapper from New Orleans, Louisiana. Combining soulful singing with a touch of rap and a slew of talent, the artist’s single, “Wavy”, induces us to take a serious look at the artist’s past releases, while he drops an ambitious message for the future. As soon as the mellow sentimental mood begins to kick in, one is reminded of the psychedelic image of fluctuating soundwaves as the song plays.

Bernie Aka Birdbadas – “Sensual” shows a unique flexibility and verve

Bernie Aka Birdbadas wears many hats. He is an indie artist, producer, vocalist, rapper, poet, break-dancer and graffiti painter from Glyngore, Denmark. Most importantly, he is currently promoting his double single project, called “Sensual”, featuring the title track and “Everybody Wants”. In mixing and melody, these tracks are closer to uplifting trance and groovy house than anything else, and Bernie puts his bass front and center. His arrangements, consequently, are beautifully economical. Yet Bernie Aka Birdbadas manages to craft tracks far beyond the sum of their parts. In the wrong hands, the sonics he toys can sound overdone or repetitive,

The Hiding: “Run City Run” – A Great Listening Experience!

The Hiding (Anthony Salce, Ryan Di Cecco, Adrian Perri) formed out of a previous band in the summer of 2010. This project saw them tour Australia, and the USA, supporting some of the country’s most respected national and international acts. Due to a direction change, it was at this point The Hiding was born.

The Hiding have just released their latest single, “Run City Run”.The song has a fresh feel to it, with lyrics that grab on and don’t let go and a beat that is dance-worthy coupled with a hum-worthy melody. The track leaves the listener feeling delighted with a well-crafted and nicely polished song that is incredibly euphonious, uplifting, and addictive.

the-hiding-680The Hiding blends everything good from various crossover pop genres and creates work that is both current and catchy, while being complex and touching at the same time. I’m struck by how their songs can be simultaneously poppy, symphonic, inspirational, and achieve a depth that you would hardly find in the vast majority of pop music out today.

Singer Anthony has such a wonderful way of using words, so intricate and captivating while the sound of the band goes way beyond hypnotic. They somehow give you the feeling of hope and the sentiment of wanting to leave earth a better person – regardless of what your mood is!

With their latest single, The Hiding confirms that they are capable of brilliantly written, modern urban-pop-rock songs. In fact, they are setting standards to how modern rock should be played today. They balance each song with enough twists, diversity and musical hooks, between electronic and guitar driven rhythms, to keep their music on the art-rock side of the equation rather than simple, sweet candy-pop.

These guys really have a different, unique style and flow to their music.  Strong vocals and pop charm harmonize “Run City Run” into a great listening experience. At this point their music can only expand to greater heights. Can’t wait for the album!
