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.

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

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,

Since then, he has signed a publishing deal with Universal Publishing and has worked with major artists such as Justin Bieber, David Guetta, Eminem, Ne-Yo, 50 Cent, Mary J.

After that, Herman, Edwin and Sean Michael formed the musical trio The Gore Boyz (aka TGB) and have set out to make their mark in music. All three boys are enrolled in music lessons; 16-year-old Herman takes on the ivory with the keyboards/piano, Edwin at 13 plays guitar, and Sean Michael, who is only 11-years-old, takes care of the drums.
They have spent the last six years in intense talent development following the Berry Gordy Motown model. They are influenced by old school R&B bands and the trendy new sounds of pop, R&B, and hip-hop. These incredibly talented brothers are not only gifted musicians and entertainers; they are also honor students, community servants and accomplished athletes.
