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 &

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

Producer Lavi Beats – From Tehran to Miami!

Lavi Hoss is also known as Lavi Beats. He was born on February 23rd in 1985 to Persian American family. He was born in Tehran, the capital city of Iran. He is a son to Atta Hoss, his father and Angalia Aghapodis, his mother. He has more of his immediate family as he is an elder brother to Cameron and he has a sister, Paris. Lavi was a student of the Azadi High School in Tehran. Once done with his high school, he got into Tehran University for higher studies.

He has a unique style with music and that is due to his upbringing in an environment influenced by music. He grew up in a musical family and came across many different forms of it. His father was a former Persian singer and his own first experience with instrument came up when he started to play cello at just the age of three. Later, he went on to play the keyboard with which he continued for four years of his life. Until finally he settled for guitar after he had picked it up at thirteen.

However, soon after his liking for the guitar his curiosity got the better of him and he went on to experiment with the drums. The one he worked with was the traditional Persian drum known as the tonbak. Once done with that he moved on to the next instrument, sitar and it can be rightfully said that this exposure to all these amazing instruments is something that had an influence on his music sense. Also, they definitely had a part to play in the development of his musical style.

Lavi Hoss is all about music and it is not only specified to singing. He does a lot more than that! He is a DJ, a record producer, a singer and a songwriter. Alongside singing he continues to play the keyboard and drums. Hence, he has experimented a lot in this field we call music and he seems to have done all of it. Still, this music star like all of us has his own favorites from the field. The ones he would go on to credit being influences on the music he produced. Sam Cook, Bob Marley, Tiesto, Afro Jack, Major Lazor and Stevie Wonder include the ones to name as those icons who influenced Hoss.

Over the years Lavi Hoss experimented with music and kept on practicing. He stuck by the music and in the end music stuck by him as well. It was this dedication and strong will that got him to start with the international musical world in 2009. Since then he has been a player of the world of music. He writes his own songs and produces them in his home studio. Plus, he likes to experiment with music and is always up to try different genres of music.

Added to all his qualities, Lavi Hoss is a team player and looks forward to working with other artists. He is capable of working in a team and has been doing so. He has worked with many recording artists for that matter. Most notably among them would be Pitbull and the singer Belinda. He produced singles with Belinda called ‘After We Make Love’ and one featuring Pitbull called ‘I Love You… Te Quiero’. Moreover he also worked on one called ‘Catarsis’ a song from Belinda’s fourth studio album.

He developed in his recent years under the influence of the music in Tehran, but he has never restricted him to that at all. Although traditional EDM music is his roots for music. His vast and diverse CD collection and his songs are a clear proof of that. He claims that the music he listens to is a great influence on the work he produces.

Now, having worked in the industry for many years he plans to release his debut single ‘Dance Like Nobody$ Watchin’ On August-31-2018 under Fire Dance Lion Records which will depict the changes Lavi has undergone over his recent years. The songs are a clear picture of his development as an artist and a singer specifically.

Thus, from his major switch from Tehran to Miami he had grown and developed into the star we know him as today.
