Raising his daughter and making incredible music that helps us all heal together.

His young daughter Zelda gives him hope that each day is going to be a better one than before as she needs and wants her Daddy to be there for her. ‘Keep My Feet on the Ground‘ will bring tears to your eyes and you want Norway’s ThoseBricks to win at life.

You might not understand all that is going on inside his brain but you support him and wish him well. This is real music that has been created to share, inspire those who need it and also bring positive energy to a world that needs each sinew of it to re-boot again. The future is in the youths hands and we need to protect, teach and guide them, so they can reach their dreams and live in a better world.

Zaid spins us back to the good vibes on ‘Party Time’ (ft. Notbad)

Zaid turns the tables up on 2020 with a new release that helps us feel the ‘Party Time‘ of 2021 (ft. Notbad).

After growing up as a Canadian kid in Abu Dhabi, he knew rather quickly what he wanted to do with his life. Be behind the decks and entertaining crowds of party-goers has seeped into his soul and he feels so alive when he is pumping the audience up. This is what he does and lives for.

The rising atmospheric soundscape sets the mood for what is next. The building block that goes higher and high in your mind and then drops hard, the party starts and the bass lifts the doom and gloom. With an electronic boost and sensual vocals that makes you close your eyes and imagine those sweaty nights in the club, dancing with your friends and meeting new lovers for the night, this is exactly the tonic that we need to make us believe in life again.

Party Time‘ (ft. Notbad) from the Canadian DJ Zaid turns back the hands of time to a better place. When there were packed crowds, smiling faces and happy bodies, sliding all over the dance floor or splashing in the sun-soaked swimming pool like there was no tomorrow.

When the world is back to almost-normal, this is the exactly the type of music that needs to be played for hours and hours while we get our dancing mode back, to forget what happened in the past and look towards the future.

Get the party started on Spotify.

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.

Mentoring youth and making beats: Atlanta based Hip Hop artist One Deuce urges us all to ‘Neva Leave Empty Handed’

Atlanta’s multi-skilled producer and Hip Hop artist One Deuce rips the door open with the truthful new single named ‘Neva Leave Empty Handed‘.

One Deuce is always looking to evolve, innovate, help the youth, and get his music out to as many ears as possible. With this kind of constant self-motivation, its easy to see why he is a well-respected creative, and a strong pillar of hope in his local community.

With the shaker start that reminds you of Christmas, to a rap delivery that is so unlike many of his contemplates these days. His style is old school and reminds us of the 80’s and 90’s era where arguably the genre was at its peak and loved the world over. The smooth rap technique is highly impressive, and the consistency adds a welcome distraction from the gloomy nature of 2020.

This is a musician who feels like he is at the top of the food chain and has so much confidence in his ability. He slings a rhythm that is full of gun shots in the sample and a thumping beat that busts through the speaker, to make a cup full of ear-ringing swag for our hearts.

His Mama told him to never leave without what you came for and this is quality advice. If you set your goals high enough you can certainly achieve them but it won’t be a piece of cake. In a reactionary and ‘want it quick’ world, this is a song that is simple and smart in execution.

Neva Leave Empty Handed‘ from Atlanta’s One Deuce is a street banger that is all about taking that one chance. You might not get too many opportunities in this Walking Dead kind of world so getting your cheese when you can, is the key to life’s refrigerator.

That moment of realization that hits home hard: Chicago producer/lyricist duo SnapDibz drop real Hip Hop truth seeker ‘Dead2Me’

Atlanta native emcee Snap and Chicago producer Dibz have joined forces to power in with lots of excellent lyrics and potent production that has created the new SnapDibz hard-hitting track called ‘Dead2Me‘.

The ominously vivid electric energy that flows up from the dark seas of doom is the way this Hip Hop track starts and you know that this is going to be extra special. This intuition is proved correct this time and the honest lyrics clamp our souls with the story of how someone close wasn’t there when you were drowning, with no way out. That feeling of betrayal is described in detail like a Picasso painting, the picture of how you had your hand up and asked for help, but received nothing but crickets in return; is tough to take and you blame yourself.

His cutting edge lyrics mixed with this perfectly built beat is sharp like a Victorinox knife, that cuts real deep and twists your bones. The anger and regret in his voice bubbles up and can’t ever be popped, as the realization of being betrayed sinks into your brain. The time to heal and take stock of who will really be there for you is now on the top of your agenda.

The realistic truth is, a lot of people are only friends with you as they see something they like, it might not be visible at first but their true colors will show you in due time, no matter how well you think you know them.

Dead2Me‘ from Chicago’s SnapDibz is a truthfully sad reflection of our reality TV based world that has created monsters from merely showing how fake life can actually be successful. The power here on the beat and lyrics should be a stark warning to us all, that we need to be so careful who we let into our sea of life as they can turn the other way when you are struggling to breathe, leaving you to save yourself with no lifeguard around.

Finding your way again: Indie-Pop singer Imelda Gabs drops the outstanding solo debut ‘Fallen Angel’

UK & Switzerland based singer-songwriter, pianist and producer Imelda Gabs is quite breathlessly brilliant on the incredible visuals for her debut single called ‘Fallen Angel‘. This is something rare and special right before our eyes.

Daughter of the world-renowned jazz pianist Doctor Gabs who sadly passed away when she was just 15, this young lady has made her own lane and he would be so proud of what she has created here.

Her music is so cinematic, each layer and move has been created with such pure precision. You can tell that she is in charge of her own destiny and is not going to let anyone ruin her vision with fads or flashy tactics. Each word is sung with an elegant class that is a refreshing cleanse of the current music around that is mostly dirty and diluted.

Scars on her back, seeing a newspaper with her name and picture inside, a movie-type start, this has it all. The haunting but beautiful start is an entry into something more than a song. this is her flying free, finally released from being in bands and in other’s shadows. She is doing what she feels is right and her piercing eyes looks right inside your soul. The gift to hold her tone is there, never trying too hard to impress anyone but herself. The scene of her with her wings on and the spark filled background is a moment that gives my whole body shivers of excitement.

With a jazz background and influenced in various genres such as pop, soul and classy classical, her music is clearly original and I love how she isn’t trying to copy anybody else’s style, only to be the best version of herself each day.

Imelda Gabs is born to be a solo artist and seems happy with this new adventure. ‘Fallen Angel‘ is a song that is edgy and real, her stunning voice and ability to get a top team to join her on the journey, is a sign of world class releases to follow with her debut EP set for 2021.

Sometimes you lose yourself and run away from that special soul that really loves you, You care for them but are scared you will hurt them so you run away but come back, hoping they will still be there. The ultimate love story to see if you are a match and the timing is always an issue. This is the incredible story and a spectacular song that will be timeless. This creation is that good.

Trying to block out the noise: Toronto based singer/rapper Brandeus drops new single ‘Sirens’

https://soundcloud.com/brandeus/sirens/s-iwLtWmoHq9M

Australian born Hip Hop artist, singer, emcee and producer Brandon Williams aka Brandeus, is back with a song all about the crazy sounds from his flat on ‘Sirens’.

Inspired by fellow RnB/Rap artists such as Saint Jhn, NAV, Drake and Russ, this is a quality act that is creating his own lane in the music world and driving straight through to the top. You can sense his extra motivation in his voice that the best acts have.

After feeling extra anxious from the constant sounds of sirens bellowing while he’s trying to work or sleep, he craves the love of that special soul to make his mind calm again. The rain is falling down and so many people are dying due to covid and crimes out there which is making this young artist think so deeply about the whole situation.

His voice and style are excellent and this musician has the gift of being able to sing and rap at the same time. The beat is marvelously woven together and made to perfectly suit him. You feel a thoughtful air cloud over you and also get into the lyrics, wondering what life is like in his world, staring outside and trying to stay safe from all the madness so close to you. Big city life can be so draining on the soul.

Sirens’ is a dope track and there is so much potential for Brandeus to reach his goals. If can stand out from the crowd and get some support slots for well-known artists once the world calms down again, the crowds will go wild for his style. Blocking out that noise is tough but finding that inner peace and laser focus is the only way to go in 2020.

Finding your burning passion: ‘What Do You Want’ by producer/musician Giampaolo Pasquile (ft Jimmy Burney) is the story of being frustrated with indecisiveness

The renowned Italian born and London based producer/musician Giampaolo Pasquile brings Jimmy Burney with him on this Dance-Pop journey to find the answer on the new smash hit called ‘What Do You Want‘.

The vocals steam through the glass windows and you need to open them rather quickly, as you might pass out otherwise. This is a hot song that is all about seeking the answer that you have been asking for ages. You get no response and you get the feeling that they are as cold as ice, and they should rather live in a freezer.

”Recorded Remotely and in Total Safety According to The COVID – 19 Legislation”- Giampaolo Pasquile

The vocals are so driven and seeking the answer is proving hard as they are not telling you the whole story. The frustration hits records highs during the song, the production is spot on, and the voice is executed to perfection- the mark of a team that have woven their talents together equally. The story of a producer who took the time during these horrific times to take a breath and re-imagined his music rather than sitting on his laurels.

Taken off the new full album called ‘Remote‘, this is music made with love and with those that matter most- friends who care about music.

Sometimes people you love hide things away- deep inside their soul- that they forget where it was to begin with. In a world pull of flashing lights, bad role models and social media distractions that have changed how our brains are, ‘What Do You Want‘ (ft Jimmy Burney) is a real story that emanates through all of our minds. Knowing what you want and taking it, is what Giampaolo Pasquile does through music, and he inspires us all to do precisely that. This is the only want to be truly happy inside, rather than living out others dreams and desires, that don’t match your own.
