Manic send through galaxy-exploring gem called ‘Program 1202‘.
Manicis 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.
Shemy rolls in the game with the potent mix of Hip Hop old school beats and flow on ‘Ain’t Like The Others‘.
Shemyis a hip hop artist from Flint in Michigan and his lyrical ability is gritty and raw, the words flow so well with his style of rapping. It’s effortless and the rhythms are real tight here.
Jeff Skigh is from Flint too and is an independent recording artist. These two work well together on this one. They shoot hoops, grind and do what they need to do, to survive in the wild streets of 2020.
Taken off ‘Oh We Rapping?’, this is a fine Hip Hop track that rides above the competition due to the superior production, vivid stories and the consistent style is upper echelon. Flint seems to be a place where top quality music is made and this is one of the best tracks I’ve heard in this genre this year so far.
Jared Sylvia portrays the world right now with the relevant ‘Wake Me Up Tomorrow‘. This is inspired by the dumpster fire that is 2020 and is sung with such purpose.
Singer-songwriter Jared Sylvia is from Orlando in the USA and he sings on this catchy beat that sums up this crazy year. This is a worthwhile listen and you will connect with this one.
You feel like you are going to die young so it makes no difference what is happening today. You feel like tomorrow is going to be a better day and you miss that special person. You lust for them and without them you feel lost and not yourself. Will you be able to break from this and move on or stay in this state forever? You can’t sleep all the time however and need to snap out of this funk that you find yourself in. Or will you stay in this mode forever? Time will tell.
Jared Sylvia sings with such relevance on ‘Wake Me Up Tomorrow‘ and this indie-pop number is a great song in 2020. What a year it’s been right? This single will make you feel better as tomorrow should be a better day.

Los Angeles, United States is the home of singer Matt Geronimo as he turns the gears up to the maximum on his new song called ‘Future’.
This is all about thinking that the person you are with is the real deal. They want to be with you too and the feelings match like a beautiful sunset and spending it alone together.

Jake Inzerra jumps in the mix with his new indie-pop single ‘No Lips‘.
Jake Inzerra’s message in his music is simple: Love yourself, respect who you are, and let no one tarnish what you can be. Infectious, dance-heavy beats matched to inspiring lyrics, Jake is free spirited and all attitude. He is a pop artist whose stylistic melodies and catchy hooks demand the spotlight almost as much as his 6 inch stilettos.
Originally from the small town of Shelton, Jake was sadly bullied by his homophobic classmates. He found acceptance in the community by auditioning for local theater productions, where he immediately discovered his love for entertainment. After graduating high school, he began taking the train into New York City to study dance at Broadway Dance Center – “Every day, I woke up at 4AM, and I never rolled out of bed. It was never a chore. I was determined. I was ready to go, ready to take on the world.” This shows how much he wanted it and this is the difference from those that think that want it and those that just know.
Jake is a flamboyant, unapologetic, confident male singer who wants to be there for other artists like him. He is a trail blazer who isn’t letting what happened before effect his future. ‘No Lips‘ is a fine new song from this upcoming singer.
