Showing your love for her: Troy drops fire Hip Hop rider ‘Bonnie and Clyde’

Young rapper Troy slides in the door with a tremendous track made for his girl crush, on the just-released Hip Hop flavored song named ‘Bonnie and Clyde‘.

Fall River, Massachusetts emcee Troy brings his fiery rap style and with production by Ross Gossage, this is a new school rap track that is all about being with someone that heats up your room each time you see her. You have an up and down relationship, but when then the lights go off, the sparks fly hot like a welder’s construction site. A new air conditioner is needed when you press play here.

His flow is vibrant and his busty bars knock down the competition with a freestyle type of rapping technique that reminds you of the old school days. This was when actual lyricism mattered and hopefully this spells a return to these days. Mumbling does nothing to add value to the genre and if fact, waters the whole culture down.

Troy is raw and uncompromising on ‘Bonnie and Clyde‘ and is totally forthright with his intentions. When you like someone, the best way to is to hold them close but also give them time to breath otherwise things can get claustrophobic, which leads to disagreements over small things.

With a fire rap style, this is a new Hip Hop artist that shows loads of potential and ushers in a new era to those tired of bad music. When you are looking for your ride or die, having a passionate moment or two together certainly helps when you want to make it big in the music game.

Heat up those speakers with a hot Hip Hop track on Soundcloud and check out his IG.

The Ukraine artist ГИБКИЙ ЧАПЛИНЪ (Gibkiy Chaplin) is back with a 20 track album that you can’t help but be intrigued by on Paris — Kavkaz.

The music textures are so mysterious and meaningful, the skill on the guitar to create this music is truly unbelievable.

That delicious treat for our ears: Portland’s Soft Cheese are scrumptiously excellent on ‘Raspberries’

Portland’s grunge-rocker trio Soft Cheese urge us to lick our thirsty lips on their lead single-‘Raspberries‘-that is taken off their much-awaited 25th December self-tilted LP release.

”Connecting the dots between the heaviness of 90’s-inspired grunge and the fog of shoegaze.”- Soft Cheese

The edgy start is such a breath of fresh air from hearing mask-like music lately. The freshly picked juicy sounds are a pleasure on our timid ears and this is something that jumps your heart like a car battery sparking up after a coma-induced rest away from the world.

Gosh, I love the soothing vocals and he steams the windows as the busty bass-line makes you blush in excitement as the deft drums dazzle the airwaves; to mesh together a marvelously created mixture that doesn’t need any further tonic. The temperature is so right here and this daze-filled atmosphere makes you have deja-vu for a short moment, remembering when this type of music was so common. If this is the rebirth, then we will need a nurse to hold our hand tight as this is a happy journey that hugs the speakers just right.

This is a trio that has more charm in their pinkie fingers that most of us have in their whole bodies. You can tell by their social media that they don’t take themselves too seriously and have so much fun together. They do have big goals however, and being on the right label for them is up the list. I hope they stay indie however and have 100% creative influence always, or work with a team that totally gets it.

There is something classy about this grunge-rock act as they impress the soul on ‘Raspberries‘. Sometimes people don’t get your journey and its lost on them as they selfishly carry on with their lives. At the end of it all, Soft Cheese are here to hopefully stick around for a while and take charge of their own destiny and play in front of thousands of screaming fans, singing every song as if it was their last. Then, they will be the ones blowing raspberries at all the ones that didn’t believe in them.

Stream this awesome band via their Soundcloud and also see their vibe on FB and IG.

The story of absolute despondence: ‘Sorry for Me’ by Tom Ivory is the tale of going under due to heartbreak

The song starts right away with a bang, and there is no break the whole way through. The sad story of a broken soul is described through the lens of a new school Rap artist, who keeps it real the whole way through. The love has been lost and the barreling wave of getting sucked under the foamy water, is proving too much at the moment. 21 year old Candian Rapper/Producer Tom Ivory is so honest on ‘Sorry for Me‘, and this is a worrying story of how love can crush your heart into smithereens.

The fragmented splintered soul is so fractured like a broken arm, the pain is there right in front of you and won’t go away. This is the story about how this artist is taking too many pills to mask the hurt underneath. The actual pain is actually only growing day by day, and by hiding away in the dark corner questioning everything you did, the hurt is only manifesting deep into the body and mind.

His words are so honesty portrayed and he raps with such skill, the fury of being let down is so paramount to the listener. The open wounds are far from being healed, and the beat stings the tail like a jellyfish at your leg, the blood thickens and you feel like you are going to pass out all the time.

With a wild imagination and a downward cycle of self-distraction, the tale of how love can cut you up so deep, it hurts like nothing else you have ever felt. Vancouver local Tom Ivory is quite breathless on the exuberantly produced ‘Sorry for Me‘, the warning for all that fall too hard, and can’t get up. The support of real friends and kind strangers, is the only way to step up into reality again.

Hear this intense song on his Spotify and find him in Social Media via Insta.
