Force M.D.S – Don’t Rush

Force M.D.S  new single “Don’t Rush” is a sexy R&B song that is for sure going to be a hit in the clubs around the US and abroad! Force M.D.S have a very sensual sounds similar to artist like Bryan Mc Knight or R. Kelly. The  vocals are soft yet deep really making the song into a stirring single. The composition is great and the beat production is on point with that classic R&B funk. I think Force M.D.S would do well with the adult R&B crowd because of the maturity of their sound.

Mista Roe’s new single “Birds and Bees” is a sensual R&B hit for the summer. Mista Roe has a distinct but sexy voice that makes the listener want to dance. The beat is slow yet moving with low bass and light sytnh it accompanies the vocals well. Mista Roe’s production is balanced no part of the song seems to overlap or lag.

Rich Lowe – Boogey Man

Rich Lowe’s new single “Boogey Man” is amazing! The song is a fresh breath of R&B mixed with juicy pop beats to make an all around fun song. The production is sleek and really makes the song stand out. It makes you want to get up and dance! Lowe’s music is similar to that of artist like Jason Derulo or Chris Brown, but he still keeps his own unique sound. I also want to mention the video for “Boogey Man” is really cute and funny! It pays homage to Michael Jackson’s “Thiller”, it’s totally worth checking out!

Water – One Night

Water’s new single “One Night” is sure to become a trap hit for the summer. Water’s vocals and a sick beat make this song amazing, his voice is deep and bassy and are complimented well by the upbeat sounds of the instrumentation. I think this song is reminiscent of early Atlanta trap but it still has new sound. The song is arranged with no parts overlapping or fighting for attention and the production is smooth allowing the song to flow naturally a clearly. I really think that fans of artists like Gorilla Zoe or Migos would enjoy Water’s sound.

Jaylon Ashaun’s latest single “Settle” is absolutely amazing! The song has a sound that blends R&B with an interesting electronic beat, the song is kind of reminiscent of late 90’s electronic music but it has a sound of it own. The song is well composed the instrumentation compliments Jaylon’s voice and lyrics perfectly. This song would be great for the club, it’s edgy and a little dark, perfect for dancing.

Robert Kramer – “King of Hearts”

Robert Kramer’s song “King of Hearts” is a great single, it has that traditional rock sound that isn’t heard much anymore. The song while familiar sounding has totally unique lyrics and a wonderful beat, almost reminiscent of Bruce Springsteen.  The production is great, very clear and highlights Robert’s vocals while also showcasing his instrumentation. The song reminds you of groups like Foreigner or Styx. I think Robert’s would be great for the older rocker crowd. I look forward to haring more music from Robert Kramer in the future.

Son & Thief – Repair

Son & Thief’s new single “Repair” is a great example of up and coming indie rock. The song has bass heavy instrumentals and paired with falsetto vocals, making the song stand out from others in the genre. The production is good, it seems purposely distorted to add to the eclectic sounds of Son & Thief. The song flows naturally  and lets all parts shine equally, I really like the focus on the ambient sound is there. I think fans of acts like MGMT, Muse, or Explosions in the Sky would enjoy Son & Thief. I hope to hear more from them in the future.

Concert Review: Explosions in the Sky, 4/26 Cleveland

It’s hard to describe the feeling that Explosions in the Sky’s music gives you, they blend indie rock, classical, even elements of metal into beautiful works of art. Their music has been known to move me to tears without a single word being said, and their performance in Cleveland on the 26th of April was just as emotional.It was my first time seeing Explosions in the Sky live and the show was so full of energy.

The sound was great and the House of Blues was a perfect venue for Explosions in the Sky. Each song was performed masterfully, I was totally blown away by the depth of their live musical talent. The show was intimate and small, the band performed a range of their songs focusing mainly on their new album “The Wilderness”. The band used wide range of instrumentation which they tweaked and distorted to their liking, hard hitting drums and soft strings kept my ears begging for more.

 

The night was all around amazing, the band really rocked the House of Blues here in Cleveland. One thing I can say is if you are a fan of great music and amazing vibes, check out Explosions in the Sky. I truly look forward to the next time that I can make it to one of their engagements!
