Teaching The World: Brice Dunbaar is electric on new single ‘BD WHO ARE YOU”

As the soulfully intriguing beat blows into the window to capture your attention, we are introduced to Brice Dunbaar who is on a mission to tell the world that they need to open their eyes a bit further to see the whole picture on ‘BD WHO ARE YOU‘.

Brice Dunbaar, also known as BD, Breez and Maître des Fanfares is a Cameroonian-born, Toronto-based hip-hop artist, poet, drummer, songwriter and successful banker, who is bilingual and raps in both French and English in his spellbinding songs.

”Inspired by reggae, hip-hop, psychedelic & traditional Cameroonian music, I was first introduced to music in my home country Cameroon.” – Brice Dunbaar

He sings and raps with such meaning on this personal message as he has met way too many people that haven’t bothered to look at the world map — as they stay wrapped into their own world and are so tied in — they can’t get out. This is the story about his frustration with this and how he wants to help teach others this elementary lesson.

BD Who You Are You‘ from the multi-talented Cameroonian/Canadian musician Brice Dunbaar, is a story for the world to learn African better and to open your mind. His sound seems to transcend the mood and helps you unwind from all the stresses around.

After being away from music so long to solidify his career, it feels like we are witnessing a man who is going to take this as far as it can go, his passion and talent is highly visible here.

Kevin Varghese aka Kavi is an experimental hip-hop poet from bustling New York City, who carefully constructs that insightful soundscape which attracts deeper minds to the issues that really matter. He inspires us to look further, to always be evolving and never sitting down on those same stale ideas for too long.

His substantially efficient rap style flows like a delightful stream on a summer’s day, each verse is entrenched with soulful powers and conscious purpose, as he blends in the thoughts of a wise healer, who sees where the water needs to go in order for it to be used correctly.

You feel so captivated while listening to this intellectual emcee, his sentence structure has true meaning and your anxious soul has an illuminated essence that fills your heart with positive vibrations, that only serves to put your mind in the right frame to put words into enterprise ideas, that helps you win at life.

Keeping that positive mindset: Denim Dan shows us that through darkness ‘Life Has Just Begun’

Taken off the recent twelve-track full album release ‘No Guarantee‘, ‘Life Has Just Begun‘ from US singer-songwriter Denim Dan is the latest gritty song from the prolific musician with a real message for us all.

With an electric start that powers in with some hot bass-lines that will cause you some sunburn if you don’t turn it up loud enough, we are soon treated to a poet on a mission to spread his own brand of positive energy.

His vibrant tone shows us that we need to jump into the pool of life and not think twice as this is the only way to stay sane in this crazy world. We have all been stuck into thinking way too far ahead, not living into the moment and this is what 2020 taught us. Starting fresh is the mindset to use and not to let anything else drag you down.

His voice is a true guiding light through the darkness and Denim Dan brings us a can full of thought-snacks via ‘Life Has Just Begun‘. He is a man who is choosing to stay positive about horrible times and for this, we all need to take a deep breath and listen to his truthful message.

‘Ghost Town’ from MikePowerNYC is a real story about the world and the damage caused by humans

New single ‘Ghost Town‘ from MikePowerNYC is a real story about the world and the damage caused by humans and terrible decisions.

New York City-based Mike had to play some slide guitar because has unfortunately ripped open his finger, running it up the neck. Adversity sometimes leads to opportunity due to the ghostly sound of the slide with harmonics interwoven. Sometimes things go wrong but that is actually leading you into the right path. This is a great story about how a song was made and this insight is brilliant.

MikePowerNYC sings with such passion and grit, he is a fine singer with real stories on ‘Ghost Town‘. The world is in a strange place and it’s a scary place. This is a man who performs for the art, he loves music and this is his message to the rest of the globe. He is honest and for that, we need to listen. This is a rare indie real gem of music, sounds that show a growing frustration to the world. This is a wise poet who sings with meaning.
