Most of these are of the electro house, trance, and dubstep persuasions, but his music blends the elements of each with those of the others in such a way as to create new amalgams from existing categories. He has been making music since 2008, and gleans inspiration from such legends of digital music as Afrojack, Sebastian, Swedish House Mafia, Infected Mushrooms, Psycraft, Hallucinogen, Cosmic Gate, Atomic Cat, Angerfist, Hanz Zimmer, Mike Oldfield, and many more.

Red Prawn Games releases official 'Robot Wasteland Game Soundtrack'

The independent video game studio known as Red Prawn Games have released their debut music album, the official “Robot Wasteland Game Soundtrack.” The album lies somewhere between an EP and an LP record, having 12 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of over half an hour. Dark, grim, futuristic and entirely immersive, the “Robot Wasteland Game Soundtrack” by Red Prawn Games is an excellent example of the ultra-high quality of music composition in today's new golden age of video gaming.

Red Prawn's “Robot Wasteland” OST is the brainchild of up-and-coming composer Przemyslaw Ksiazek, popularly known by his professional name, Ksamus. Music by Ksamus tends toward the ambient and electronic, very much alive, with sweeping waves of sound which form towering crescendos and sprawling sonic landscapes the mind can easily envision as if pictures were being painted on the canvas of one's imagination. It is the creativity of Ksamus the music fan is hearing, though, which makes it more than likely that the world will be hearing much more from this musician over the next few months and years.

Ksamus cites as main artistic influences J.M. Jarre, Kraftwerk, Vangelis, Klaus Schultze, and Daft Punk.

Asked to comment on Ksamus' work on the background score for their game, Red Prawn writes, “The 'Robot Wasteland' album is by far our best creation music-wise. If successful, we will certainly make more music in the future … Ksamus did a marvelous job composing all the pieces and accurately reflecting the game's mood and climate.”

Red Prawn describes their artistic aims by saying, “Red Prawn Games is an independent game development studio. We make games for smartphones and tablets. We always strive for the best possible quality, and that includes the sound-effects layer as well as the music background.”

The “Robot Wasteland Game Soundtrack” by Red Prawn Games and composed by Ksamus is available online worldwide beginning 22 May 2015.

Rapper J. Cobb releases new single 'Vegas'

The rapper, songwriter and performer of hip hop known as J. Cobb has released his new single, “Vegas.” The track has been concurrently released with an official music video, publicly available for viewing at J. Cobb's official website (link provided below). Both have been proudly published on the Stone Group Records LLC independent record label. Bringing the best elements of pop, rock, and hip hop to the turntable all at once, “Vegas” is clear proof that J. Cobb and Stone Group Records are names to watch in coming months and years.

J. Cobb cites as main artistic influences such titanic names as Eminem, Jay-Z, Nas, Tupac Shakur, the Notorious B.I.G., Andre 3000, T.I., Snoop Dogg, and Wiz Khalifa. While this distinguished list shows a great deal of taste on the part of J. Cobb, it does little to ready the listener for his actual style on “Vegas.” Elating, entrancing, party-inspiring and full of verve, Cobb's new single is a hip-hop track unlike any other.

Asked to describe the main theme of his new single, J. Cobb writes, “Don't be scared to dream. Take calculated risks and it's possible to create the life you want to live.”

This solitary quote sums up the artistic character of J. Cobb fairly well, and especially so when taken in conjunction with his new “Vegas” video, which colors him as a fun-loving, intrepid young man with real joie de vivre in his soul and plenty of music in his heart.

Part of the secret behind Cobb's fearlessness and sense of adventure is a background which begins in Detroit and includes time in both California and New York City. Classically trained in piano since the age of four, the endlessly creative Cobb began his first production company at 20 years old. His lyrics run the gamut from club rallies to social commentaries, bringing partygoers and revolutionaries together on the same dance floor.

J. Cobb's current official bio concludes by saying, “As both the life of the party and the voice of reason, J. Cobb creates a sound and a perspective you don't want to miss.”

“Vegas” by J. Cobb becomes available on 22 May 2015. Pop, rock and hip-hop fans should get in early.

“Be Mine” by Kevin South: Ido Records describes South as “a solo artist who, in his writing and interpreting the songs, is reminiscent of the Beatles. His is music that comes from pure feelings, a rare thing these days.”

“Shame of Me” by the Curbs: according to Ido Records, the Curbs are “Heaven-kissed cross-breeds from London who create a sound laced with beer, margaritas and passion.”

“Same Again” by the Red Queens: is an example of contemporary indie-pop music which is “Simple and decisive at the same time,” writes the label, who go on to say the Red Queens spend their time “filling the evenings of London with their notes and their messages.”

Asked to comment on the general theme of the EP, Ido Records writes that it is essentially based on “Love and respect.” With regard to the impetus of “Battle of the Tracks,” itself, they write that “Battle of the Tracks comes from an idea to unearth new talents who deserve a chance to get out in the sunlight.
