Dozenz – The Truth: 80’s Pop Hype with A Little Extra Bite

Dozenz is the latest solo project from British singer song writer and producer, that brings the essence of essential 80’s pop to life. His latest track The Truth borders on the classic sound with a contemporary hype. Fans of the genre are in for a treat. His latest track which is now available for download has quickly gained notoriety amongst fans with his unique approach to his music. Inspired by Britpop artists such as Frankie Goes to Hollywood for their playful approach to rhythmic energy and lyrics. Dozenz has created a sound that will almost surely end up just as notorious. He creates an infectiously atmospheric sound, that’s a rich synthesised cacophony as he mixes his unique brand of Hip Hop into the mix

The talent that lies behind Dozens is Saleh Hamed and his passion for mixing trailblazing anthems that are piqued with the essence of diversity. He creates music out of his passion for unity, and uses his platform to spread messages of positivity that can resonate within everyone. With such a charming reproach to music production, it’s hard not to love Dozens.

Ekaterine Music Presents DreamTaun; Contemporary Country Funk

One month after the initial release of DreamTaun, the fresh new single from Ekaterine Music and we’re still revelling in the absolute masterpiece of this sonorous sound. With its wholesome hints of Country, Americana, Electro-Pop, Funk and Ska DreamTaun has the momentum of a thousand wild horses.

The track progresses with Ska tones reverberating from the guitar with transient slips of melody from the verse to the chorus. The track has an angelic aura about it twined with the exuberance of one of the most confident women that you’ve ever had the pleasure of listening to expressing herself in a midst of raucous energy. The sound dominates its sweet euphoric vibe. The vocals are as clear as glass fracturing into a thousand pieces through the rhythm of this track. Ekaterine Music is the new musical venture from visionary Moscow born singer song writer Ekartine Goglidze whose music soon caught the attention of the BBC. In 2016, she was invited to perform her original material in the live sessions. She’s a woman of astounding grace and stunning talent.

Moonlighter Break Even Against All Odds

Bandy around the term pop-rock and the mind initially goes to some sort of middle of the road, fashion-driven dross that neither delivers the immediacy of the former nor the integrity of the later. But what if there was a way of taking the instant hook and inherent melody of a pop approach and weld it onto a driving, urgent and robust rock vehicle. Surely anyone who could do that would be carried head high through the streets, would be called saviours, the rainmakers of this current music drought, would be regarded as heroes and brave cross-genre gene splicers of the modern musical age. Or if you are looking for a more modest title you could just call them Moonlighter.

And it is this balancing act which sets them apart. As popists and rockists wage pointless pitched battle, moonlighter adhere to the cult of the song, preferring to take the role of tunesmiths who exalt composition over flash and muscle. If this retrospective is the perfect rallying point for those who have long understood that this middle way has always sported brilliant acts — pop acts muscled up by a dash of rock, rock acts whose bluster is tempered by indie details and indie acts happy to explore pop immediacy — why can’t more bands understand this simple equation.

Nikhil Swaroop – The Light: The Acoustic Zeitgeist

I’ve only just had the pleasure of being acquainted with Nikhil Swaroop. It took me approximately 10 seconds to fall completely in love with him from when I hit play on his new track The Light (The Original). The video of the light takes place within Nikhil’s inner sanctum, allowing you a personal view into his life, past and pain, with no holds barred.

He’s a stunning singer song writer currently living in India, I have to say it was my first experience listening to Indian acoustic, but one things for sure, it won’t be the last. He has the same pensive delectableness of the quaint sonorous likes of Ray LaMontagne, Keith Urban and Glen Hansard. The light is charged with upliftingly harrow emotion that flows with inexplicable ease.

Aside from his original work, Nikhil has become the master at breathing a little soul into British and American songs, from Lady Gaga to Ed Sheeran, each sound is as staggering as the last. The whole production for the video to The Light only took 50 minutes. He’s kindly left the track as raw as it gets for his fans. If only more artists were that honest with their work.

Camille Peruto – Row Ghost: Taylor Swift Meets Sonic Youth

Camille Peruto’s new album ‘From the Sea To The Sky’ is now available to download. So why has the sound caught our attention? The Pennsylvanian based artist is a little different from the acoustic singer songwriter vibes that you’re used to. The production behind the track is monumental. The stand out track on Camille’s debut album Row Ghost has all the sweet soul of hit pop acts but she knows better than to follow in their lead when it comes to instrumentals which are teaming with reverb and heavy guitar riffs over mid-tempo bass riddled beats.

Camille’s sound could almost be described as shoe gazer/indie, with the same melancholic flow of the guitar as bands such as My Bloody Valentine & Sonic Youth, but her voice is one of pure angelic poignance. The layers of her diverse variation of vocals echo over the track to convey the raw emotion behind the lyrics which paint a melancholic picture with upbeat styling.

There’s a delectably haunting element hidden within the sound of this track which makes it the ultimate hit for anyone that’s looking for a signature sound from an empowering female voice.

Check out Row Ghost and the rest of Camille’s album ‘From the Sea to the Sky’ on the link below:

Jonah Atkins Releases Extraordinary Soul Track ‘Two Steps Back’

There’s this feeling that always brew over me each time I stumble on songs like this. I can’t really put to words in that deserved pitch without being overly emphasizing on the magnanimity of the soul of this song. It’s more like suckling on morose for so long and then finding repose in a new way some moment after you reclined and left your sheath a ruin on the cold floor.

Emphatically, Jonah Atkins is a great songwriter, he sure does have his way with words, If you listen to this song with great attention paid to the lyrics you’ll understand better. This choice of using an acoustic guitar as the first instrument in this song really gave the slow tempo of this song an edge over the normal regular cool slow vibe you’ve ever listened to.

The brisance of the melody is overwhelming. Jonah Atkin’s “Two Steps Back” can be characterized as Coldplay’s “Fix you” acoustic version played with Passenger’s guitar stroke in a voice like Owlcity’s Adam Young. The lyrics and deep messages that were passed in each line of this song with such repartee is the focal reason why I would wanna hear more of Jonah’s songs.

Be sure not to remember to forget that you’ve gotta check out this great song if you enjoy listening to any of this great artists; Passenger, Adam Young and Coldplay.

Danelle’s “Broken” Is A Risky Production, But The Payoff Is Worth It

Have you ever found it odd that so many songs about feeling damaged or distraught are put together in a way that seems to convey the opposite. Major keys and crystal-clear production doesn’t exactly scream trouble. Artists, particularly singers, tend to find juxtaposing contrasting emotions to be a way of creating something unique, but when a singer has a tone in mind and can also find the perfect backdrop to amplify that feeling, we get something more powerful. Broken by Danelle is a song that builds incredibly well using slightly off-kilter elements to its advantage.

From the opening, the slightly transduced vocals have a quality about them that’s hard to pin down. They seem somewhat lo-fi in how they’re recorded, but they’re much more ambitious in their performance than what a lo-fi artist would be comfortable with. Between humanly off-beat claps and progressively more layered vocals, we get to enjoy a frightening and dynamic mix that evolves over time into something much grander than the original parts led on. In this way, the key to the song is sticking to the theme without sacrificing quality. Broken is a risky production altogether, but the payoff is well worth it.

Jordan Waller Releases Official Music Video For “Let You Down”

Singer/Songwriter Jordan Waller has a keen ear for larger-than-life melodies and emotional hooks that feel memorable and easy to relate to. His recent single, “Let You Down”, is a perfect example of the artist’s songwriting skills and lyrical prowess. The song feels lush, deep and rich, reminding me of artists such as Coldplay or The Fray. However, Jordan’s approach is a little more personal, echoing the work of artists like Ryan Adams.

You could say that “Let You Down” is a great compromise between the vibes of pop, the energy of stadium rock and the sensibility of an intimate singer-songwriter act.

Check out B.F.R. ‘The Great Unknown’ sometimes simplicity works best

When it comes to rock music, sometimes simplicity works best. This is definitely the case for B.F.R. – This band set out to create a catchy and direct tone with lots of attitude and energy. The song is a great blend of pop, rock, punk, and indie: imagine what it would sound like if Blink-182 were to jam with Coldplay! This might sound a little weird, but if I picture that “fantasy” collaboration in my mind, I would probably imagine the hypothetical resulting jams to sound something like “The Great Unknown”!

The song is atmospheric and textural, yet direct and fresh. With “The Great Unknown”, this band set out to channel their spontaneity through a simple, yet engaging set of melodies and beats. The drums are direct and sustained, while the guitars are crisp – the sound is driven, yet ever so slightly, allowing the guitars to breathe and still have somewhat of a “clean” tone that offers more defined melodies.

You might have caught him at festivals around North America such as SXSW in Austin, NXNE in Toronto, or CMJ in New York. Or maybe you’re just discovering his music for the first time.

A resident of the neighborhood of Silverlake in Los Angeles, Joseph has established himself as one of the rising stars in the buzzing songwriting scene of Southern California.
