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

Quad – “Love” embellishes each track with his personal revelations

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

The Golden Cage Society Release The Video for “Mira el mar” From Their Mini EP “Mira”

The Golden Cage Society Release their Mini EP “Mira” on the 27th of February

Have you ever been lost in a piece of music before? The kind of lost where you are beamed off into another plane of existence and brought to bittersweet musical bliss with every crescendo? When you take a dip into the mysteriously mesmerizing world of The Golden Cage Society, you’re not just sinking back into an otherworldly trip of rich soundscapes and mystical storytelling; you’re taking a step into the raw, untamed mind of a genuine artist that elegantly paints a picture of life in all its ugly glory.

Fusing sophisticated song progressions with grandiose instrumental build ups, catchy melodies and paradigm shifting life observations; The Golden Cage Society are here to strike that perfect balance between infectious, pop-rock-perfection and boundary pushing experimentation. The thoughtful three-piece are currently launching into the musical stratosphere with their debut mini EP “Mira” (release date Feb. 7th 2020). Though only bearing two songs, the release is a genre-bending journey across twelve minutes of jaw-dropping musical prowess and tasteful, stylistic song worlds. Opener track “Mira el mar” whisks listeners away on a magical music trip around the sound pallet.

From Spanish influenced flamenco interludes, to epic rock-dripped euphoria, contagiously soaring choruses and screeching, frantic peaks; the song keeps you on the edge of your seat whilst eloquently revealing a story of lost love and eventual freedom from self-imposed restrictions.

The second track “Howls” questions why humans do the things that they do and the cry for deeper meaning that comes with every action we take. Brimming with ethereal guitar lines, hazy, atmospheric soundscapes and unforgettably earth-shattering crescendos; the art-rock piece itself is a howl for the desire to spread wisdom and perfectly-practiced, beautiful melodies to the world. Based out of Leipzig, Germany, The Golden Cage Society is the brainchild of lifetime artist, musician and songwriter Lutz Leukhardt. He previously ran the award winning group “Dante’s Dream” that saw some serious success in their day.

Some of the bands notable highlights include: touring as far a Haagse Pop Week, Berlin and Amsterdam, getting featured on the video game “Rock Band”, writing the title song “Gamers Unite” for an early Gamescom convention and even getting praised on their work by Billy Talent. The Golden Cage Society was formed in 2018, with the name being inspired by the scars and restrictions left behind by the darker shades of life such as prejudice, fear of commitment, existential dread and eternal longing.
