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

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,

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’

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

Brent LeVasseur: Another World (Aoleon the Martian Girl) featuring Élan Noelle

Author Brent LeVasseur and Singer-songwriter Élan Noelle, Collaborate on Another World (Aoleon the Martian Girl)

Brent LeVasseur is the author and creator of Aoleon The Martian Girl, a middle-grade- young adult Science Fiction and Fantasy book soon to be released on  The theme around the storyline of the book is centered on a Cosmic adventure story involving the characters, Gilbert and Aoléon as they embark on an adventure to the planet Mars and beyond. On Mars they uncover a sinister plot by the Luminon (the supreme leader of Mars) to invade Earth and steal its milk cows. Only Gilbert and Aoléon can save both of their worlds from impending doom.

Brent was interested in creating a theme song for his Aoleon The Martian Girl book project, which encapsulated the essence of the characters and the storyline. Not having ever written any pop or dance songs previously, Brent thought it would be fun to try and create one.

aoleon-elan-noelleIn his endeavors he sought out the very talented Élan Noelle and asked her if she would work with him to create an appropriate song for the theme. A  San Francisco CA native, Élan Noelle moved to Washington, D.C where she cultivated her musical talents.  At the tender age of five, Élan Noelle already knew that she wanted to perform. An exceptional singer, songwriter and producer, Élan has created a sound that is all her own. Some of her major musical influences come from an eclectic list of artists such as, Earth Wind and Fire, Pat Metheny, Chaka Khan, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Jamiroquai, Kaskade and Teena Marie.

After agreeing to Brent LeVasseur’s collaboration proposal, Élan Noelle proceeded in helping towards the creation of the song, which is aptly entitled Another World (Aoleon the Martian Girl) [feat. Élan Noelle].

The song combines the best of the classic 80’s synthesizer music with a timeless, emotional and modern score. It has an infectious, uplifting beat and lyrics you just can’t help singing along to. The emotion of the track is very clear and very powerful. I found myself grinning for no real reason after listening to it. The music made me feel that good!

For those who love melodious yet mysterious and fantastical musical imagery, you can imagine flying through the clouds on hearing this, but at the same time the upbeat rhythm is pretty adaptable for dance floor too!

aoleon-300The overall sound has a ‘nostalgia factor’ as part of its appeal, but it also is full of real singing emotion provided by Élan Noelle, whose voice is very reminiscent of Irene Cara, the absolute film-music songstress of the eighties, performer of the hit theme songs “Fame” and “Flashdance”.

Another World (Aoleon the Martian Girl) [feat. Élan Noelle] is as magical, and often times inspirationally uplifting, as well as touchingly beautiful as were those exceptionally successful songs during the 80’s.

If you ever believed that the world and beyond, was a truly magical place, this is the song for you because it will remind you of how you felt during your young adult life, and maybe make you believe once again.

However, if you’re in your young adult years right now, then you need no reminding about the wonders of a Cosmic adventure like that of Aoleon The Martian Girl, by Brent LeVasseur or its fantastical theme song, Another World (Aoleon the Martian Girl) [feat. Élan Noelle]!

Absolutely wonderful to listen to…or even to dance to!
