Robbie Z Revs Up Some Hooks & Beats In Hot Wheelz

20 Apr

With Hip Hop & Rap musicians rapidly fusing original beats, collaborating with crossover genre artists, and evolving in sub genres, Bulgarian Hip-Hop/Pop artist Robbie Z hops into the world at a perfect and opportune time. Robbie Z will remind listeners of Kreayshawn when she became popular after her release of Gucci Gucci in 2011, both in sound and artistry. His music has a perfect blend of unique beats, EDM influences, and cohesiveness in the overall sound. The single Hot Wheelz talks about automobiles, bills, and deals. The song mixes a balance of venting, unique cultural references, and references to auto. Since his debut single Copy-Paste which came out in February 2018, he has experienced unplanned success which has fueled him to take on filming his own music videos. With his creative vibes at an all time-high its no surprise that he will continue making music and increasing the creative mastermind behind his music and image. His debut full-length mixtape will be released in late Spring 2019, titled REBELLIOUZ, with Hot Wheelz being a preview track from the mixtape.

GEA Sings With Her Heart First In Newly Released EP Snow

20 Apr

GEA is a master storyteller as she crafts her songs with her unique sound. With her EP Snow, there is a mixture of easy listening tunes and heavier ones as well.  The song Snow itself was influenced by a death of her friend. The story is of a young boy who tells his mother that he came to the world to be a snow angel. Fast forward 10 years later, and he passed away when their town got the first snow of Winter. Linking up that song with the way GEA delivers the memoriam is breathtakingly heartfelt. The musical arrangement is that of another world, with piano, violin, and synthy dream pop working together to yield a galaxy signature sound. Additionally, when listeners pair up GEA with similar artists she spans more than Nordic rock, but also can be put in the categories of EDM, Indie Pop, Dream-Pop. Only gaining recognition in September 2017 with her music, she has been nominated by the NBT Music Radio in Germany for that album and many others ever since including Hollywood Intl Golden Film Award Best Soundtrack Award for other songs. Hard work pays off as she recently released her single Time at SXSW this March and her showcase was completely sold out. By the power of connection and having a pure and organic sound, listeners recognize that GEA is unapologetically herself and the popularity follows.

Erich Mrak Spins A Beat of Sound In Latest Single Drive

16 Mar

Synth beats, the wave of hip  hop, and strong lyrics all paint Erich Mrak’s sound.  Polished and refined, the talents of his producer Bento shows through as well. With lyrics such as “down in the city, under the lights, I’ve got the time”, he sets up scenes through his music, creating an experience for his listeners. When trying to frame who his sound is like, one can place it in the realm of EDM and electro-hip hop. The bands, Cherub, Spooky Black, Foster the People and a dash of Drake all rolled into one best exemplify Mrak’s sound. Drive will be the 2nd of Mrak’s 6 singles released consecutively from January to June, culminating in a finished EP. After they are released, live performances of each song will be released as well. 2019, watch out for this musician to climb the charts without a doubt.

Now You See Me EP Unleashes Electro-Beats & Riveting Pop

9 Feb

David Browning wows with his modern tracks from his Now You See Me EP. Upon first listening, his music sounds like a mix of theatrical songs and Canadian pop that has been playing in my headphones since high school. A mixture of tracks, a favorite Call Me When You’re Single  mixes narrative storytelling and metaphors of the single life. Stay Over mixes it up with feel good EDM and electronic beats you want to run through your veins. With the genre of EDM fluctuating up and down, Browning makes it a no brainer to lump him in the category of heart-pumping pop that keeps us listening and anticipating his next creation.

Purple Skies Carries EDM Vibes By Acidic Base

25 Jan

In Siddharth Goswami’s debut album, Acidic Base delivers high-quality EDM on Purple Skies. The album overall carries the just right amount level of synthesized beats mixed with the carefully orchestrated sound. Standout tracks on Purple Skies include Halycon which has the perfect balance of synth soul vibes and the undertone beat you hear in a lot of nostalgic galaxy rock. Another favorite on the album points in the direction of the song Blurred. It reminds me of old school LCD Soundsystem, Justice, and a dash of Ratatat. All of these bands are leaders within electronica and dance music, which should definitely let Acidic Base know they are on the right track for being in alignment with making their name known as one to watch within the genre.
