Manic sends through an original galaxy-exploring gem ‘Program 1202’

Manic send through galaxy-exploring gem called ‘Program 1202‘.

Manic is an electronic dance music producer and DJ from Southern California in the USA. He used to concentrate on remixes but after a new friend made a suggestion, everything has changed and the light went on. Focus on your own music they said. This has given this fantastic producer a whole new lease on the game and this is a quality effort.

I love the start of the track. We hear communications from space to mission control and this gets you in the mood to hear more. The electric beat then transports you into a different mood, you feel free and start thinking about what is actually up there. Looking up and not down is the message here. The world has so many possibilities and we get stuck on what is on the tube, instead of looking up, seeing what else is up there.

Program 1202 from Californian producer and DJ Manic is a thrusting song, full of possibilities and I like how he is making his own music now, with mixes of course in his music locker. For a debut track, this is a marvelous effort and full of promise.

Marsha Marsha Marsha’s rocking ‘Never’ is a story of that true love

Marsha Marsha Marsha are back with this terrific punk rock track called ‘Never‘.

Marsha Marsha Marsha is the solo Project of Derik Toy. Derik began his professional musician career in San Diego in California where he honed his skills playing just about anywhere he could.

From the surf inspired rock of Atlantic Records artist Dakoda Motor Co, or The Surfers with Kelly Slater and Peter King (Epic Records), to tearing up the club scene with the funky sounds of Polyester and the Funky Love Bomb, Derik held down the back end with precision. However, it was recording these bands, and working in the studios that Derik learned of his love for engineering and production.

Now a father of 4, and not interested in touring, Derik prefers the family life with his own studio. Derik writes and records along with various session musicians. He has released numerous tracks under different monikers, and continues to write and perform fun pop music with a rock edge with his latest band Marsha Marsha Marsha.

This is all about wanting that special one in your life and never letting go. Can this love story end well or will it not?

Finding your purpose with OneSixTwo’s Monster Ft. Tommy B

Monster” from OneSixTwo is one for the books from the Medocino County artist in sunny California.

OneSixTwo takes us inside his journey of being the underdog that has dealt with the undertones that all plague us at some point. The negative energy that can be all around us. I feel like a lot of artists are envious of his talent and this affected him. Not anymore. This is a fiery effort with passion.

This is a quality single from the rising talent from Medocino artist who sings his heart out while also featuring the excellent Tommy B. These two join forces like a perfectly cooked Sunday roast and it heats up during the ice cold beat to emanate the right temperature.

2020 has just landed the ultimate soundtrack. It has been a year stained by so many tragedies.

This fine song from the talented OneSixTwo as he slides into the place he belongs. After being the underdog due to egos and pettiness for too long, it feels like this is his best effort yet. He knows what his purpose is now and that’s to make more top shelf music for the weary souls out there.
