My Intuition: Rising Atlanta-based rapper Detroit YB breaks out the restrictive box with the street banger ‘No Rules’

With a formidable track so hard it will bust a massive hole through your brittle speakers with resolute vengeance, Detroit YB purposefully shows us into his win-now mentality on his inspiring new single ‘No Rules‘.

This is the true story of how you can grow up troubled and with very few helpful role models, as the harsh struggle to suppress your built-up anger is so real and scary. You can however make it if you want it bad enough and are able to stay away from those tempting alleys — which call your name out greedily and with evil intentions — as the blood-suckers desperately want you inside their dastardly clutches, so they can sickeningly control your every thought and move.

The busty beat is full of warrior strength — as this is the haunting message of fighting away your skin-peeling demons — and opening your own doors to the top of the mountain, with that pure hard work and inner instinct to succeed. You feel his pain and cheer him on, his skill set is motivating and tremendously expressed. This is an unflinching man who sees where he needs to go now and will never give up.

No Rules‘ from Atlanta-based rapper and music producer Detroit YB, shows us a focused artist who is playing by his own script now, as he looks to bag that paper and get it stockpiled all over his skillful rhymes. This is that hustle track to lift you off the lazy couch — as you throw away the unhealthy junk food and only aim for the top — with a true raw emcee who is heading down the right road to ever-lasting enlightenment.

That deep-rooted intuition which is hard to explain, will always be your beaming light if you open up your eyes.

ATMIG – Ah Hah: The Baroque Alt Folk Equivalent to John Carpenter’s ‘They Live’

Escape the 21st-century and slip into the sepia-tinged tones in Detroit-based alt-indie rock luminaries’, ATMIG’s, latest release ‘Ah Hah’ which chorally attacks the nature of consumerism and unfolds as the indie alt-folk equivalent of John Carpenter’s ‘They Live’.

Any fans of Amanda Palmer, Neutral Milk Hotel, The Smiths, The Cure and Echo and the Bunnymen will undoubtedly want to delve to cigarette smoke-stained indulgent single which spills alchemy through the infusion of shoegaze, rockabilly, indie rock and traditional folk.

If Ah Hah was any more absolving, I’m pretty sure I’d be antimatter right now.

Intrinsic melodies in abundance: Chandler Sedat drops debut single ‘No Way To Live’

US singer-songwriter Chandler Sedat is a fairly new artist but he shows growing maturing on ‘No Way To Live’, which is the new lead indie-rock single taken from his debut full seven-track album ‘Unknown‘.

Detroit, Michigan musician Chandler Sedat has always had music on his mind and kind of knew he would do what he loved. After finishing up with college in 2016, this is a self-motivated man who has been focusing on his music and mastering his production skills to the max.

His voice is strong and he sings with such purpose, the layers here are so intricately packed in a pulsating parcel as his hard work is brought to us over dreamy vocals.

The story of moving on from someone that doesn’t have time for you like they used to is a harsh reality that can only be seen when you are out of a picture. The snap of the camera gives you time to reflect and realize what you want to be, which is worth millions over a few cents of meaningless relationships that can end in seconds. The flame is now out and the memory will remain despite the wrongs of the past. Mistakes were made and the only way to move on is to forgive and learn from them.

Chandler Sedat is a special talent and ‘No Way To Live’ is an excellent song from the debut artist as he stamps his name on 2020.

Freshen up your earlobes on Spotify and catch up with Chandler on his IG.
