Indie artist Bonsai Bison trims off the edges with ”No Respect”

Bonsai Bison is a musician and visual artist based in East London in the UK. ”No Respect” is the new release for the newcomer in the music scene and this is an enjoyable single.

This is all about getting that respect that you deserve and not settling for anything else. This is a vital way to go about things otherwise you can go crazy. Being manipulated and hearing lame stories all the time that you know aren’t true is no way to live. This is experimental electronic music and I haven’t heard any style like this before. The beat takes me to a strange place and I am reflective and feel like I am in a far away place. Quite a lonely place.

Bonsai Bison is creating a niche for herself and this East London artist doesn’t conform to any particular box which is refreshing to see. There are some creative sampling here and I like the home kind of feel. This is an artist keeping busy during these crazy times and getting better and better.

Detroit Emcee Ebgbev drops deep debut ”Numb to the Pain” in memory of his late father

You feel the pain deep in your heart and all you want is for it to go away. You can’t make it go away so you drown it out and soon everything feels all numb. You sink in a hole and you think you are never going to come out. You miss that loved one. Will you be strong for them. Or will you sink in the quicksand and never reach your goals in memory of the one you lost?

I haven’t been feeling too much new Hip Hop lately. As a 90’s Hip Hop fan I miss the old school beat and the storytelling. When I turned on Ebgbev’s Numb to the Pain” for the first time I experienced a feeling I hadn’t for so long. This new track has a real story.

Ebgbev unfortunately just lost his father due to to horrible coronavirus pandemic that has changed the way the world works. This is a terrible loss and we extend our condolences to Ebgbev and his family.

After losing my own father back in 2001 I got emotional after listening to this song. The pain eases sometimes but it never really goes away. Ever. You always want that one more moment to ask the old man a question. All you can do is remember the good times and cherish his memory.

This new Hip Hop track is well executed and the beat captures the moment to perfection. It’s piano background adds to the picture that he has created for us. This is new school Hip Hop with a new school feel. I like the lyricism and I’ll be keeping an eye out for more releases from Ebgbev as we all should.

Detroit in Michigan has a new emcee to embrace. With his Pops looking out for him up above, the sky is the limit.

Stream ”Numb to the Pain” right here on Spotify to hear this deep track.

There is lots of laughing at the beginning of the new single and I wondered what was next. This is the genius of L.A.Shawn.

It will come to me soon and in the meantime we are blessed to have more music from this emcee that is pushing music out as quick as the world is pushing out bad leadership. It’s happening real fast.

They haven’t defined him and this is a rapper who continues to evolve and change the game. His flow is so tight and you can tell he is real. ”Broken Dolls’‘ is a quality release for 2020 and one of the hottest Hip Hop tracks so far this year.

Mizuchi drops real new single about addiction with ”Morphine”

Addiction is a deep hole to climb your way out of. The detours are littered with tempting caveats and slightly open doors that you know you should avoid but end up sneaking in anyway. This topic is rapped through this new track from Mizuchi to effective levels that linger in your mind and ears.

Born and raised in Mumbai, Mizuchi found the inspiration for his moniker in the years of exposure to Japanese art and films. He shares its affinity with the name Varun in Hindu mythology.

Morphine” is the brand new hot release from this indie rapper who tells stories so illuminatingly right in your face. He is a true storyteller and has a unique style that I haven’t heard before. The production is raw and I’m sure was due to COVID-19. I like it though. I’ve always been a fan of music that sounds different and not so perfect. This is a good song and I admire the emcee for being so honest of his battles. It takes heart and self-awareness to get these issues out there. He could help people who is the point of music. Healing and being inspiring. Mizuchi just did that.

Inspirational Hip Hop never gets old. As long as apathy still lingers in our society, we’ll need artists such as Rooftop J to grace the airwaves with high-vibe tracks such as “We Going Up”.

Their Rap bars parallel the mellifluous feel of the beats in the track which is bound to be of interest to fans of Mac Miller, Kanye, Drake, and Kendrick Lamar.

Ever since Rooftop J made their debut in 2018, they haven’t been short of acclaim, and it’s more than easy to see why. Their magnetically connectable vibe is inimitable.

Romantic duo ‘Super Love’ are back with 5th single ‘’Ambient’’

‘Super Love’ is an American duo from New York, New York in the USA. Formed in 2019 by Constance Watkins (lead vocals) and Jared Watkins (multi-instrumentalist), they are back with their lovely ‘’Ambient’’ single, the 5th one from their exciting debut EP.

This is a soothing song and this sweet duo takes us through a journey, the song is very chilled and shows off Constance’s vocal abilities. You can see that these two love playing with each other and although they haven’t performed as a duo for long, they are totally comfortable while playing.

A brand new duo, they will go from strength to strength with more live gigs and events so they can see which songs work and some don’t. “Ambient” is a song about dealing with loss. It is melodically driven and the heartfelt vocals pair with a motown-groove jazz-fusion bass line, emphasizing that life continues even through grief. 

The band has been influenced by the local style of New York City, involving piano in their expressive sound and incorporating elements in their work from numerous subgenres, including punk and jazz. They live in an incredible city, one bursting with energy and the music scene is second to none. Let’s hope that this act plays as much as possible, so that they can light up more and get a chance to fully shine.
