Mission:Recovery & MIO drop new passionate new song ”Unfaithful”

Mission:Recovery aka MNR is a rapper, songwriter, singer and music producer from Pune in India. He uses aggressive rap styles and adds in drum & bass dance sound elements to accelerate the music and to accentuate his message on various important youth-centric topics. Major influences include Linkin Park, Fort Minor, Machine Gun Kelly and many more.

Unfaithful” is a sad story about abuse and the raps are alight with fire here on this well-done track. The story is sadly all too real in the world we currently live in. The beat is dark and moody, just like the song. MIO makes an important feature here and the beat turns into a drum & bass track after starting off as Hip Hop. A fabulous mix indeed.

Mission:Recovery & MIO drop ”Unfaithful” into our laps and lets hope this song brings more awareness to the unacceptable abuse of children like it was intended.

Stream this new track right here on the Spotify music channel.

A Part A Party slams down the door with stomping debut ”Stummy”

Stummy” is the brand new track from A Part A Party. He craves the love of a good woman and this pandemic hasn’t helped matters. He loves getting rubbed on his tummy and thinks out aloud about what his next move is. He is trying to keep things together and pulls in with this baseline that is so catchy. The goal of making money is vital right now and he knows the rest will come when the time is right.

The inspiration has been building for some time and you can feel the energy that has been tied up. Lock down has inspired you to put out music and you cruise through the front door. The beat is drum & bass influenced plus there is a trap Hip Hop flow to this.

There are a few genres at play here and I love the variety. The drum fused bass beat keeps you intrigued and the bars absolutely shred through the dazzled speakers.

There is so much potential here from this debut track from A Part A Party. The violin echoes through like an announcement. This new artist is here with a bang and will shine through.

New artist ToleX fires out the gates with smooth Drum & Bass flyer ‘’Runaway’’ ft TobiSAX and Natalia Ibadin

If there’s a thing called love, I want you to show me. Promise me. I’m all yours. This is exactly the type of lyrics we are looking for in these at times- terrifyingly scary world of bleakness.

With sexy sax vibes illuminating at the beginning on this striking single, ‘’Runaway’’, has all the right energy to be turned up loud at any time of the day. The new track soon gets going with pumping Drum & Bass beats but maintains it’s pureness and melody expertly. I feel in a good zone listening to this style of music, reflective but with a smile on my face, feeling positive and relaxed at the same time.

ToleX has London’s TobiSAX (on sax) and the superb vocalist Natalia Ibadin in fine form, singing her heart out to the wonderful beats.

If this is the standard of ToleX’s music, we are all in for a treat to come. This production is fantastic and with the sax and stunning vocals adding a fine element, bring on more music like this.

Give Your Synapses a Shake with Bibo’s Latest Bass-Heavy Hip Hop Drop “Vice”

“Vice” is the latest bass-heavy drop from up and coming Hip Hop artist Bibo. Usually, Rap tracks which come with lashings of bass aren’t the most accessible from the first hit. But Bibo’s flawlessly smooth harmonic R&B vocals and the accordantly slick production of Vice takes it to the next level.

Any fans of Billie Eilish’s experimentally dark soundscapes definitely shouldn’t hang around putting Bibo on their radar. As reverberantly caustic as the soundscape is, Bibo has weaved in a captivating amount of romanticism into Vice adding yet another dynamic to the complete aural juxtaposition of a single.

Coskun – WORKOLIQ : An Eclectically Fresh Serving of Globally-Inspired Drum & Bass

After up and coming music producer Coskun blew us away with this world-inspired track “Prone” last month, it was hard not to get excited about his latest offering of Drum & Bass “WORKOLIQ”.

Whilst Prone did little to prepare us for what was in store when we hit play on the almost archetypal dubbed bass-heavy beats were still pleasantly surprised at the mesmeric resounding effect of the solidly structured track. There’s still a smorgasbord of eccentricity weaved into the mix, yet with a more commercial style, it’s hard to imagine Coskun will struggle when it comes to getting the notoriety he deserves for his smooth and seamless productions.

Now he’s covered Hip Hop, World and D&B with his productions we’re infinitely excited which soundscape he tackles next considering it would seem he has every genre at his deft instrumental command.

You can check out Coskun’s third single WORKOLIQ which was released October 2018 for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud now.
