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

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

JoNnY EastCoast: “Its Kinda Ironic” is nothing short of greatness

“Its Kinda Ironic” by JoNnY EastCoast is nothing short of greatness. EastCoast brings it hard in this track, and he can be proud of the song. This goes back a little into the cash, drugs and girls thing, but JoNnY puts in plenty about his view on struggles in an artistic way, as he tells the world what he’s all about.

He is one of the nicest at laying down punchlines. In order for you to appreciate “Its Kinda Ironic”, you have to understand the hip hop world. This is not just another mainstream single; it’s a blend of what JoNnY has been doing in the underground world for some time.

If you don’t keep up with the mixtape and underground world then this will be hard to understand. “Its Kinda Ironic” is one of JoNnY EastCoast’s hottest tracks in recent months because of the smart lyrics, the hook, and the versatility. EastCoast is one of the few artists today that can flow about money in one song, women the next song, and a life spent hustling on the next song – all while maintaining a true and real flow in each song.

This single is a very, very, small piece of JoNnY EastCoast’s work. In order to fully appreciate what he brings to the game, you have to listen to him on his mixtapes. They are fire if you know how to listen to them.

On “Its Kinda Ironic”, JoNnY brings smooth, creative lyrics, with a sweet beat and a hot groove. You get the feeling that this dude is not just rapping and spitting rhymes to just get your respect, but he is speaking on personal stuff that has affected him. That to me shows growth. He has everything working in his favor here too – his skill as well as the tight beat!



JoNnY EastCoast knows his stuff, and is an artist whose use of words is as good as Van Gogh was with a paintbrush. He comes up with things that you would never even have thought of, he’s on cloud 9. “Its Kinda Ironic” exemplifies how supremely confident JoNnY EastCoast is in not only achieving success in the rap world, but in clearing out any and all obstacles in his way!

MORE ABOUT: Jonny EastCoast is not your average MC. He likes to look at every situation as a positive one. When it comes to writing, producing, and mastering the songs he is a perfectionist. He started writing and producing music at a young age, while falling victim to drugs and crime as a teen. Eventually leading to selling drugs and robbery to pay for, and fund such a fast life style. Not too long after he would end up in state prison for a 5 year sentence, where he would study his rhymes and rhythm for a better understanding of the hip hop scene and music production. Since being released in 2014 he took full advantage of the rhyme book and focused his time and energy into hip hop. He also started a record company together with his brother.
