Rex Stax releases new singles feat. DØZE and Principe Baru


The producer of pop, R&B, electronica and modern soul known as Rex Stax has released a clutch of singles for the 2017 year, including “Eternity Collide,” “Lost in times” and “Trucos.” The singles feature artists such as Anuar of DØZE and Principe Baru. They have been proudly published on the Ants on Mars independent record label without the direction of the corporate music industry.

Innovative, danceable, and showcasing a colorful variety of grooves with something for fans of nearly every music genre, “Eternity Collide,” “Lost in times” and “Trucos” stand as evidence that Rex Stax continues to be a force in modern independent music.

Rex Stax cites as main artistic influences the electronica pioneers, Kraftwerk, and one of hip hop's chief innovators, Grandmaster Flash. Imagining a blend of these two sounds arrives at a style of music very close to “Eternity Collide,” “Lost in times” and “Trucos.” Fans of either legendary musician can expect many similarities in music from Rex Stax and the Ants on Mars label.

Electrowow.com calls “Eternity Collide” a “care-free Caribbean anthem.” Writer and DJ Erick writes, “From the first floating notes of Rex Stax’s new single, 'Eternity Collide,' you know you’re in for a treat. The tropical house track is an airy combination of dance beats and sparkling, synthesized percussions that keep the melody bouncing from beginning to end. Playful lyrics like 'Let's play together, closer than ever, please don’t leave no space' give the song a flirtatious tone that would be at home in a club or more intimate settings.”

Music fans are encouraged also to see the official video from Ants on Mars for “Eternity Collide” (link provided below).

“Eternity Collide,” “Lost in times” and “Trucos” are available from Rex Stax on the Ants on Mars label from over 600 quality digital music stores online worldwide now.

Singer-songwriter Paula Punch drops second summer single 'Match'


The singer and songwriter from Australia known as Paula Punch has released her second official single for the summer 2017 season, “Match.” Like her other recent releases, the track has been proudly published on the Punch Park independent record label without the direction of the corporate music industry. A contemporary folk piece with an emphasis on soulful singing and graceful lyric poetry, “Match” is a track likely to find a home in the hearts of many music fans around the world.

Paula Punch has cited as main artistic influences rock, pop, blues and folk music, the latter two seeming to lend the most to this current release of “Match.” Her songs are frequently introspective and autobiographical, her themes largely romantic, inspirational and individualist, all of which lend power to a music style built on the considerable talents of a solo music artist.

The crystal-clear studio production of music by Paula Punch belies her otherwise devil-may-care attitude.

“Music is what happened to me while I was '...busy making other plans,'” quips the singer, quoting a famous line from John Lennon.

Nevertheless, “Match” is a gleaming example of how to write, perform and record folk music. Its strength lies in its minimalist songwriting. Punch's performance elucidates the song, rather than revels in it. Recorded at Electric Avenue Studio and mixed by Rob Gist, the studio production merely polishes the track to a high shine.

“Match” is a mellow counterpart to Paula Punch's previous “Lucky Girl” release. She has hinted that more music is to come in 2017, perhaps leading up to an EP release.

Fans of contemporary folk and folk rock music have good reasons to watch Paula Punch and Punch Park to see where this chugging train is headed.

“Match” by Paula Punch from the Punch Park label is available online worldwide from over 600 quality digital music stores now. Get in early, folk fans.

Comedic rapper Raja RG releases official single 'American Crazies'


The comedic rap artist, entertainer and dance innovator known as Raja RG has released his latest official single, “American Crazies.” The track has been proudly published as an independent release without the direction of the corporate music industry. It is the official single release of his popular YouTube video of the same name which has garnered more than 80,000 views as of the time of this writing (link provided at bottom). Funny, witty, and socially on point, “American Crazies” by Raja RG is a hip hop track anyone can get behind.

Asked to cite some main artistic influences, Raja RG (AKA HinduHomeboy) mentions only Michael Jackson. That his rap song shares few attributes with the King of Pop isn't surprising, but it's notable that his videos impart a novel dance to the listener which he, himself, invented.

The dance looks fun to do and easy to learn, as evidenced by Raja RG's charming video in which he meets strangers in New York City's Central Park, gifts them a homemade “American Crazies” mask made from a paper plate and red, white and blue paint, and dances with them as he sings his song. It looks much less ridiculous than the macarena, and is less likely to annoy the average viewer.

“I am a mixed-race 28-year-old music artist who sings, acts, and dances,” Raja RG says of himself. “I just released a fresh, trendy bit of comedic fun, an original American hip-hop dance single and music video about us Americans called 'American Crazies.' I think it has a lot of potential.”

With the number of views moving steadily closer to the 100,000 mark, it's fair to say Raja RG's “American Crazies” has more than just potential.

“American Crazies” by Raja RG is available online worldwide from over 600 quality digital music stores now. Don't miss the official music video!

Folk crew Merry Hell release new EP 'Come On, England!'


The UK team of contemporary-folk artists called Merry Hell have released their latest EP album, “Come On, England!” The EP has been proudly published on the Merry Hell Music independent record label without the direction of the corporate music industry. Genuine, polished, proud and uncompromising, “Come On, England!” is as much a humanitarian rallying cry as it is an English one.

Asked to cite some chief musical influences, Merry Hell speak of “A hugely diverse range, from church music to classic folk, including Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, and English artists such as Dick Gaughan, all that married to the energy of punk and global politics.”

Merry Hell's new “Come On, England!” EP showcases two tracks from last year's popular “Bloodlines” full-length and one from their 2011 LP, “Blink... And You Miss It,” a new live take of “The War Between Ourselves.” Also showcased on the EP is an an acoustic reworking of 'Lean On Me, Love' from their debut 2011 record as it is now performed live.

It generally has the effect of bringing even large audiences to silence,” writes Merry Hell of the track. “It brings couples together, too. They get inspired by the words and sentiments of the song.”

Lean On Me, Love” is the public's first peek at their forthcoming 2018 album, “Anthems To The Wind.”

Merry Hell's current official bio describes them as offering “a joyful, uplifting slice of folk-rock with a message: an alternative national anthem for these troubled times. Based in North West England, this award winning group celebrate community, togetherness and love as antidotes to conflict, division and hatred.”

Asked to describe the themes of their new EP, Merry Hell write, “The songs express the hope that togetherness can be an antidote to alienation and division, both in politics and personal relationships. Invoking the power of peace and united voices, ‘We Need Each Other Now’ speaks for itself, while ‘Come On, England!’ is an alternative national anthem appealing to the nation’s traditions of tolerance and resistance to totalitarianism.”

Merry Hell consistently win awards, often for reasons surpassing those of mere musical quality. Most recently, Manchester's LBGTQ+ Wigan Pride organization selected “Loving the Skin You're In” by Merry Hell as their anthem.

As one website has described Merry Hell's humanist leanings, “The call to counter-racism and the encouragement of collective responsibility has never sounded so damned catchy!”

A tireless band of players, Merry Hell are slated to perform at gigs and festivals throughout the UK as their tour continues over the whole of 2017.

Come On, England!” by Merry Hell is available online worldwide from over 600 quality music stores beginning July 31 2017. Get in early, folk fans. Very early.

Singer-songwriter Paula Punch releases new single 'Lucky Girl'


The singer and songwriter of acoustic pop and adult contemporary music known as Paula Punch has released her latest official single, "Lucky Girl." The track has been proudly published on the Punch Park independent record and fashion label without the direction of the corporate music industry. Heartfelt, outspoken, and built on a solid groove, "Lucky Girl" showcases Paula Punch to be one of Australia's most genuine indie music artists for 2017.

Sydney's Paula Punch cites as main artistic influences LP (Laura Pergolizzi), and "everything from opera to rock, blues, folk and pop." She's quick to mention her upbringing in classical music, and the effect of being married to an Elvis and Stax Records fan. “I also loved all the raw energy of bands like The Pretenders and The Eurythmics and the genius of Joni Mitchell,” she writes. Her own music is most similar to that of the aforementioned LP, whose career as a performer is undercut by her titanic work as a songwriter for the likes of Cher, Rihanna, the Backstreet Boys, Christina Aguilera, and more.

"I just love, love, love LP at the moment," writes Paula Punch. "I immediately felt I had met a musical sister."

The likeness is immediately apparent in Punch's straightforward approach to song crafting. Her structure is standard pop, her lyrics equal parts earnestness and radio hooks. Appropriately, "Lucky Girl" is presented in its studio form without bells and whistles beyond the considerable talents of Punch, and her producer Rob Gist. The music fan gets the impression that she's right there, playing live for an audience of one.

Rob Gist has brought his great experience as a sound engineer, music producer, and performer in the band Girl Overboard, when working on Paula's songs.

Asked to describe the themes of her new single, Punch writes, "[It's about] my life experiences, my goals, my disappointments, my joy, my love."

Paula Punch has been in music since her youth, playing guitar, singing in the Philharmonic Motet Choir, fronting university bands, recording as a session singer, and often providing backing vocals for famed guitarist Ed Kuepper (The Saints), and other Australian artists including Anne Kirkpatrick. She is the founding member of the popular women's singer-songwriter event in Sydney, "The Friday Girls," at which venue female artists debut new material live before an audience in a supportive environment.

The Friday Girls has been called home by artists including Jackie Bristow, Suzy Connolly, Fiona Kernaghan, Corrine Gibbons, Helen Ryder, Greta Gertler and popular duo Joy and Lara (Joy Howard and Lara Goodridge).

"Rob and I hope to continue bringing these songs to life," Punch says, "that tell the story of a woman living and working in Sydney, and some of the joys and struggles that come with modern life, and being a "Lucky Girl" in a lucky country!"

"Lucky Girl" by Paula Punch is available online worldwide beginning 12 July 2017 from over 600 quality digital music stores.

Former Tooth and Nail Records artists release debut EP 'Runways to Boulevards'


Tooth and Nail Records alums Jonathan Caro and Justice Gulmatico of Bloodshed have released a new EP album, “Runways to Boulevards,” as My Compatriots. Joining them on the historic release are Matthew Vangalapudi, Hunter Chapman, and producer Matt Lapoint (Disney, Warner Bros., Universal Studios, more). The EP has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Blending power pop grooves with an early-emo aesthetic and painstakingly deliberate song structures, “Runways to Boulevards” by My Compatriots proves that the original spirit of emotional hardcore is still alive.

Founding member, songwriter and vocalist Jon Caro cites as main artistic influences Superchunk, Husker Du, Foo Fighters, and Adorable. The result is a style which never feels forced or ostentatious, but rather invites listeners with undeniable hooks and a warm, welcoming sound which feels both familiar and unique at once. Each of the 30-minute record's six tracks has a character all its own, its own reasons for listeners to make it a temporary favorite over the other five. This makes for an EP album with plenty of replayability and record-collection potential.

Kickstarted with fellow Tooth-and-Nail titan Scott Silletta (Plank Eye) on drums in 2008, My Compatriots dropped their long-awaited debut EP in 2016, followed by a quiet followup in Q1 2017, “Under the String of Lamps,” which has ignited interest in “Runways to Boulevards.” For My Compatriots, the EP has become a flagship release. For music fans, it signifies a triumphant return to the proto-indie sound of early-emo rock, the underground scene gone mainstream of which My Compatriots are veterans.

“For 2017 My Compatriots is looking for a restart,” says Caro. “These two EPs represent our new beginning. There is a mixed foundation of rock and layered space sounds weaved into each individually crafted song. A full-length is in-progress and set to be released later this summer along with performance dates to be announced.”

“Runways to Boulevards” by My Compatriots is available for free listening and album purchase directly from the band now (link provided below). Get in early, fans of early emo and power pop. Very early.

Rapper Ric Wil releases new official single 'The Bad Guy'


The rapper known as Ric Wil has released his latest official single, “The Bad Guy.” The track has been dropped in both explicit and radio-ready formats. It is proudly published on the R U Wit It Entertainment independent record label without the direction of the corporate music industry. Steady, heavy, and blending elements of old-school and modern hip hop, “The Bad Guy” is a track rap fans around the world can appreciate.

Gary, Indiana's Ric Wil cites as main artistic influences Jay Z, 50 Cent, the Notorious BIG, and Kanye West. Having been raised in Jamestown, New York, it might not surprise anyone to see the East Coast thread running through his list of favorites. Likewise, the original East Coast sound which started it all decades ago is audible in Ric Wil's own “The Bad Guy,” a pared-down, minimalist, uber-direct showcase of an MC on the mic with beats to build on and no unnecessary bells and whistles.

“The Bad Guy” is the third addition to the Ric Wil repertoire, riding on the coattails of his debut mixtape, “Ric Wil the Future,” and a single, “So Outta Here.”

Ric Wil was raised in a musical family, beginning first on trombone while developing his lyric talents on the side. His current official bio says of his early years, “He imitated the famous and influential rappers of the day until he grew comfortable with his own talents and found his performing persona.”

Today, he credits two people with bringing him to this stage in his career as an entertainer, rapper Divinicci (Uttmore Brevard), and rapper J Phenomenon (Jonathan Wilson). Divinicci and Ric Wil played off one another in a rap group, Wit It Wit It, largely specializing in freestyle. J Phenomenon is Ric Wil's real-life younger brother, whose passing in 2010 of heart failure charged Wil with an intense personal mission.

“His death was out of the blue,” writes Wil. “Losing him pushes me to want to do my music and ‘blow up’ like he said I would.”

Doubtless, J Phenomenon would be proud this day has come.

“The Bad Guy” by Ric Wil is available online worldwide from over 600 quality music stores now.

Rapper the Animal Kyrawn releases new single 'L-Mo'


The Animal Kyrawn has released his latest official rap single, “L-Mo.” It has been proudly published as an independent release without the direction of the corporate music industry. “L-Mo” is bundled at music stores with both a remix edition and a B-side, “Ride,” produced by DND Music. “L-Mo,” which was produced by ProHoeZak, is only the most recent addition to an expanding repertoire by the Animal Kyrawn which includes singles like “Dead Already” and “Hate,” as well as his spring 2016 EP album, “Feed the Wild Life.”

Showcasing versatile vocal skills, contemporary production sounds and a very danceable groove, “L-Mo” is a track for fans of hip hop all the world over.

The Animal Kyrawn cites as main artistic influences many of the great titans of old-school hip hop, such as Slick Rick, NWA, Run DMC, Ice T, Dana Dane, Nice n Smooth, E-40, Tupac Shakur, Scarface, and Das EFX. This places his favorite hip hop styles circa 1990, when great innovators like these were taking what artists like Slick Rick were doing and moving it into the next generation of rap. Hip hop of the nineties gave up plenty of the humor and sly wit of the '80s sound in favor of more mature, more complex rap music, but retained the solid back beats dancers demanded at nightclubs and MC performances.

This sums up “L-Mo” by the Animal Kyrawn fairly well. The three offered tracks are plenty appropriate for dance clubs, house parties, car stereos or personal listening. Fans of deliberate songwriting will be attracted to Kyrawn's lyric gymnastics, and listeners for whom melody lines and studio effects are key are likely to note his unique use of autotune and other background details.

Asked to describe his drive to become a musician, the Animal Kyrawn writes, “I got bored with the industry and needed to hear something different.”

In describing the themes of his new single, Kyrawn says, “[I want people to know] that it's not that serious. Take some time and have fun, but be cautious.”

“L-Mo” by the Animal Kyrawn is available online worldwide from over 600 quality digital music retailers now.

Future bass producer Chieftone releases new single 'Stray Gun'


The producer of future bass music known as Chieftone has released his latest official single, “Stray Gun.” The track has been proudly published as an independent release without the direction of the corporate music industry. Airy, affirming, fun and full of space in which to move around, “Stray Gun” is an example of EDM's emerging sound for 2017 and beyond.

Chieftone cites as main artistic influences Flume, San Holo, Knife Party, King Tubby, Bob Marley, and Prince Fatty. EDM listeners will note straight away the future-bass leanings of the former trio, while dub, dancehall and reggae fans will mark the accomplishments of the latter. “Stray Gun” is, in fact, a blend of the two pairings.

“After playing in ska and punk for the last 10 or so years,” writes Chieftone, “I have decided to branch out and release my own solo music in a completely different style.”

This new direction of Chieftone's is called future bass, a rapidly rising subgenre of EDM only yet populated by a handful of producers. With the aptly named “Stray Gun,” Chieftone aims not only to add himself to the future bass roster, but also to stand apart with his own sonic character.

“Although this style of music is reasonably new,” he writes, “hopefully my take on it will be a little different as my love for old reggae and Jamaican music will no doubt slip it's way into the sound.”

Chieftone goes on to mention that “Stray Gun” is part of an upcoming EP record of the same flavor, one in which dancehall elements may become more strongly intertwined with the future bass foundations laid down here.

Rolling Stone's David Turner describes future bass as “a still-codifying genre,” saying, “Future bass takes the ecstatic drops of dubstep or trap, but provides a warm bounce rather than a lumbering bruteness. Basslines are provided by harsh, detuned synths that buzz and purr instead of gulp and whomp.”

“Hopefully,” says Chieftone, “'Stray Gun' makes people want to turn their speakers right up and bring some good vibes to their day.”

“Stray Gun” by Chieftone is available online worldwide beginning 15 July 2017. Get in early, EDM fans.

Rapper Skyy Divinity releases new album 'It's Gon' Be Ok'


The rapper and producer of hip hop known as Skyy Divinity has released her latest full-length album, “It's Gon' Be Ok.” The record contains eleven original Skyy Divinity tracks for a listening time around 40 minutes. It has been proudly published on the DPMG United independent record label without the direction of the corporate music industry. Poetic, aggressive, and built on lines, rhymes and rhythms from the ground up, “It's Gon' Be Ok” stands as proof that Skyy Divinity is no amateur MC.

Skyy Divinity cites as main artistic influences Beyonce, Jay Z, and Missy Elliot. Her own sound is exactly that – her own sound – but “It's Gon' Be Ok” fits with music by these three titans very well nonetheless. It's pop music with an edge, having 'explicit lyrics' tags on roughly half the record. In terms of style, the entire album is radio-friendly and is likely to do well in virtually any position in a DJ's playlist.

But the most prominent feature of Skyy Divinity's “It's Gon' Be Ok” is wordplay. It's a record with much to say and plenty of creativity with which to say it.

“The message is saying things in life will get better over time,” writes Skyy Divinity of her new album. “It also sends a message of Woman Power, and of doing things your way. And last, it's about Love and War!”

Skyy Divinity hails from Freeport, Grand Bahamas. She has been writing music since the age of 11. Winning a high-school talent competition sponsored by local music studio Ultimate Dub Lab put her in the spotlight with coverage from the island TV / radio station, ZNS News, as she performed for 1600 students at her school. This would form the basis of her fledgling career as a musician. Since then, Skyy Divinity has opened for legendary hip-hop performer Rick Ross and become acquainted with such popular performers as Trina, Richie Spice, Fanton Mojah, Gyptian, and Isasha & Million Voice.

Her official video for “My Way,” the opening track on her record, is already heading into the thousands of views in only a score of days (link provided below).

Stefan Goreé releases new single 'To Live and Survive on 7 Mile'


The rapper and producer of hip hop known as Stefan Goreé has released his latest official single, “To Live and Survive on 7 Mile.” The track has been made available in both explicit and radio-friendly formats. It has been proudly published on the Nationwide Power Entertainment independent record label without the direction of the corporate music industry. Dark, genuine, and packed with intensity, “To Live and Survive on 7 Mile” is a hardcore rap track with true gangsta heart.

Detroit's Stefan Goreé cites as main artistic influences Royce da 5'9", Eminem, Big L, Ugly God, Rocaine, Sada Baby, Kendrick Lamar, Danny Brown, Big Sean, and Rick Ross, among others. His own style and sound are unique, however, even if some of his topics are familiar. No one who hears his “To Live and Survive on 7 Mile” is likely to insist they've heard something like it before.

“I want to show people that, yes, it is violence inside of Detroit,” writes Goreé, “and I have lived through some terrible times, but I want to do it in a different way. I may talk about the same subjects but I always try my best to find different ways to talk about them.”

Stefan Goreé would have had to, he's been making hip hop for so long. In fact, his music roots go all the way back to grade school.

“I used to get in trouble a lot in school,” he writes. “My mom told me to start putting my energy in something else, so I started off by making beats, originally back when I was 11.”

His beats are heavy and work to showcase the grit of his lines and rhymes. The themes of “To Live and Survive on 7 Mile” are more autobiographical than they are about a thug narrative.

Asked to describe the overall message of his new single, Goreé says, “I am hoping that my music can show people the story of my life, what I go through. I want them to know.”

“To Live and Survive on 7 Mile” by Stefan Goreé is available from over 600 quality music stores online worldwide now.

Metal crew Attempted Revenge release new EP album 'Origins'


The heavy metal group known as Attempted Revenge have released their latest EP record, “Origins.” The album contains seven original tracks for a listening time of nearly half an hour, making it a comprehensive introduction to this skilled group of rock titans from Brooklyn, NYC. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the direction of the corporate music industry. High-octane, full-throttle, and boasting atmospheric, narrative songwriting, “Origins” will put Attempted Revenge on the map of American metal for fans around the globe.

Attempted Revenge cite as main artistic influences Disturbed, Avenged Sevenfold, Slipknot, and Dragonforce. Their own style is as complex and technically advanced as these, and with similar tones overall. However, Attempted Revenge captain their songs with less ostentatious vocals which neither scream nor growl, setting them apart from the nu-metal norm. Listeners who have grown tired of such conventions are likely to appreciate Attempted Revenge's story-driven songwriting.

Asked to describe the overall themes of “Origins,” Attempted Revenge write, “This EP begins the story of Attempted Revenge and the S.L.O.P.P.Y.”

Listeners curious to know the backstory of said “S.L.O.P.P.Y.” will need to check out the record's second track of the same name. It's safe to presume “Origins” is a record with a mythos of its own, one which Attempted Revenge fans are likely to have made themselves acquainted previous to the release of the album.

“The making of 'Origins' was the most interesting experience for me,” says Reaper (vox, guitar). “I got to do a few things I like doing most which was chilling with my bros, smoking a bunch of weed, creating this and watching this come to life in ways I'd never imagined hearing. It wasn't just a fun time, it honestly was a life experience.”

Guitarist and vocalist Chris Vicious writes of his experience in Attempted Revenge, “The greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you can't do.”

“I'd love to thank everyone that has been with us since the beginning!” says drummer D'Weasel.

Attempted Revenge's current official bio describe them as “a hard rock/metal band” and having “multiple vocal leads, dual guitar melodies, and rhythmic drum-bass style.” It concludes by saying, “AR brings a unique sound, providing catchy riffs, diverse style, and awe-inspiring stories.”

“I love it,” writes bassist Sloppy Jo. “I love us, I love our music, and I love sharing our music with others. There's just something magical that happens when we work on our music together, and that magic is 'Origins.'”

“Origins” by Attempted Revenge is available from over 700 quality digital music stores online worldwide now.

Rapper MONSTER Mayweather releases new EP 'Real Eyes Realize Real Lies'


The artist and producer of hip hop music known as MONSTER Mayweather has released his latest EP record, “Real Eyes Realize Real Lies.” The extended-play album contains six original tracks for an approximate listening time of 20 minutes. It has been proudly published on the O'Third Mafia independent record label without the direction of the corporate music industry. A contemporary rap record emphasizing vocal gymnastics and urban poetry over big-production background effects, “Real Eyes Realize Real Lies” is officially MONSTER's new flagship album.

MONSTER (Make Other N-ggas Start Trembling when Entering the Room) Mayweather may be the headlining act on “Real Eyes Realize Real Lies,” but he's not the only talent here. His new EP also features the skills of artists such as Zilla, J-Ova, BossMan, TC Gambino, and Supa King Big Pope.

Asked to cite some main musical influences for his new record, MONSTER lists Tupac Shakur and Marvin Gaye, Harlem Renaissance poet Langston Hughes, and the seminal historian and pioneer of Pan-African studies during the Civil Rights Movement, Dr. John Henrik Clarke. As might be gleaned from this roster, MONSTER's “Real Eyes Realize Real Lies” is a record with plenty to say.

“This E.P. shares a story to its listeners that's simple, emotional, truthful, real, and valid,” writes MONSTER Mayweather. “I share my struggle and my sacrifices.”

Mayweather hails from the North side of Huntsville, AL, where he became embroiled in gang activity which earned him his nickname, MONSTER. His current official bio shows an awareness of sociology's Culture of Poverty theory, stating: “Transforming and ascending to new levels, MONSTER understands that a Wealthy mindset is better than a Broke mindset and wants his fans to grow with him as his music will grow.”

He strikes a similar note upon being asked to describe the overall theme of his “Real Eyes Realize Real Lies” EP.

“Just because you're being rerouted,” writes Mayweather, “doesn't mean you will not make it to your destiny.”

“Real Eyes Realize Real Lies” by MONSTER Mayweather is available online worldwide from over 700 quality digital music stores now.

Asked to cite main artistic influences for his new track, Chxxsy (often stylized, 'chxxsy') first mentions classic '80s and '90s pop, then Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson by name, leaving for last modern artists such as Ty Dolla $ign and Travis $cott. His own sound on “Day After” is slick, spacious, and produced with a surgical precision – all of which brings the King of Pop to mind, but Chxxsy's “Day After” has a pronounced 2017 feel to it which is where his individuality shines through.

Asked to describe the overall theme and message of “Day After,” Chxxsy writes simply, “Chxxsy is the message.”

Chxxsy is the stage name of Ralph Charlie, who has been making his own brand of music since 2008.

Chxxsy has also written songs for the famous Russian musician, Sergey Lazarev, songs which achieved prominence on the Russian Billboard charts.

Chxxsy is revving up to release an official EP in coming months with a title and drop date to be announced. Fans are encouraged to sample his music at his official Soundcloud page [link provided below].

Rap artist Oblivion drops new twin singles release 'Fame and Struggles'


The rapper and producer of hip hop known as Oblivion has released his new single and B-side track collectively titled, “Fame and Struggles.” The tracks themselves are “Jump Rope” and “So Gone.” Both have been proudly published on the So Many Visions (S.M.V.) Promotions Records independent record label without the direction of the corporate music industry. True, gritty, and showcasing Oblivion's knack for making something new and unique from the mainstream hip-hop sound, “Fame and Struggles” stands as evidence that Oblivion has come into his own.

Selma, Alabama's Oblivion cites as main artistic influences Lil' Wayne, Drake, and Gucci Mane. Oblivion's own sound minimizes melody lines and utilizes plenty of space between beats, allowing his vocal phrases and lyric poetry to retain the spotlight. The result is an uncluttered style of hip hop which will attract fans of rap who appreciate wordplay over massive productions involving countless effects and tons of autotune. In other words, “Fame and Struggles” is a straight-up rap record.

Asked to describe the overall theme of his new album, Oblivion writes that it's about: “Life issues, how society sees you (stereotyping), relationships, women, flexing, turning up, making money, buying cars, houses, and jewelry.”

Oblivion is a 23-year-old man born and raised in Alabama, the third of four siblings. He has been crafting rap songs since the second grade. His older brother encouraged his music talent by promising to put him on a track if he kept up the good work. Informing his rap lyrics were difficulties at school including violence and trouble with authority figures.

“One day I decided to put all these bad experiences into my lyrics,” writes Oblivion, “to help me stay focused on the positive, not the negative things around me.”

The negative heaped on him regardless, though, with the unexpected passing of his beloved grandmother. Again, he turned to his music, but life wasn't through challenging him.

“Then my older brother passed away unexpectedly as well,” Oblivion says. “With all this going on in such a short time, I woke up one day and said, 'tomorrow is not promised to you so I need to do what needs to be done to make it happen.' I have put a lot of hard work into my music so I can make my grandmother, my brother, and my family proud.”

The upshot of this is “Fame and Struggles,” Oblivion's spearhead achievement. He makes it clear that these two singles will be the start of something much bigger.

“This is not just a dream for me,” says Oblivion. “I am going to make this a reality because my parents made so many sacrifices for their children to succeed in life, so failure is not an option. I am all-in, and I have my family behind me to make it happen.”

“Fame and Struggles” by Oblivion is available from S.M.V. Records at over 700 quality digital music retailers online worldwide now.

Hesohi releases fifth LP album 'Conversation'


The digital music artist known as Hesohi has released his fifth studio album, “Conversation.” The record contains six original Hesohi tracks and a bonus single for a total of an hour and fifteen minutes of listening. Five of these are available only with the entire record while tracks Two and Seven may be purchased as singles. The album has been proudly published on the LovethangBoomin'System independent record label without the involvement of the corporate music industry. An eclectic, post-modern take on trip-hop blended with ambient and classical composition methods, “Conversation” proves that Hesohi is an artist for the new millennium.

Hesohi cites as main artistic influences Art of Noise, Cinematic Orchestra, Towa Tei, Avalanches, Todd Rundgren, Kraftwerk, the Late Night Tales Series, and All Good Funk Alliance. But he's not alone on “Conversation.” Joining Hesohi in the studio for his fifth full-length album are Douglas T. Martin, Derek Sibert, and Steve Fernandez.

Hesohi himself describes his new record as “downtempo,” but admits that “The first term that comes to mind is trip hop.”

“This music doesn’t contain the obligatory sample-based sounds that usually accompany the beats in this genre,” writes Hesohi. “The sound is synth-oriented, with live guitar and bass performances that sound like conversations between the instruments.”

This principle comes from classical music, where it is known as call-and-response, or antiphony. Also similar to classical composition forms is Hesohi's carrying of themes throughout tracks 10 and even 20 minutes long, as well as across the entire record – or as the artist himself puts it: “The idea of the 'track' is expanded and transformed into the idea of the 'composition,' in the way that one might paint a picture onto a large canvas and later paint a mural onto a wall.”

“Conversation” is digital music for the connoisseur of sounds. To steal a phrase from one of Hesohi's cited inspirations, Towa Tei, it is a sound museum.

Hesohi's label, LovethangBoomin'System, says of the record that “There is a feel of a producer exploring the sensibility of techno at a much slower pace, and without the constraint of fitting the end result into kind some kind of format. The songs take their time to get where they are going. The attention to detail provides dynamics that move the listener through the arrangement effortlessly. The time passes in a comfortable manner. The mix is lush but unquiet with a good amount of animation.”

Speaking to his fans, friends and cohorts, Hesohi writes:

“Thanks to the people who have introduced me to so many beautiful songs. I am forever on a quest to listen and learn about the world and it's inhabitants through culture and express myself with music. Thanks to the artists who inspire and energize my spirit. Thanks for the Family love and support. I appreciate very much the people of this planet. Partypeople, hold tight. We are gonna make it. Everything is gonna be alright. Stay positive. Spread love. Be kind to yourself.”

“Conversation” by Hesohi is available from LovethangBoomin'System online worldwide at over 700 quality digital music stores now.

Irish R&B singer Sarah O Gorman releases debut EP 'Concrete Rain'


The singer and songwriter of rhythm-and-blues known as Sarah O Gorman has released her debut EP album, “Concrete Rain.” The record contains four original tracks for a listening time of 17 minutes. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Blending elements of soul, R-'n'-B, and even folk music, “Concrete Rain” signals that Sarah O Gorman has plenty of evocative music to share with the world.

Carlow, Ireland's Sarah O Gorman cites as main artistic influences Tracy Chapman, Van Morrison, Nina Simone, Curtis Mayfield, and Joan Armatrading. Music fans will quickly note common threads running through this selection of legends, and as might be surmised, many of these threads lead to O Gorman, herself, and to her new record.

“It feels on a few levels like coming home,” says O Gorman of her debut album. “But that's the story of all human adventure, isn't it?”

This idea of a circuitous journey seems to lie at the heart of “Concrete Rain,” and appropriately also in the artistic process of its creator.

“Making 'Concrete Rain' happened very naturally,” O Gorman says. “I'd written the songs and had been playing them with a loop machine. Then, during a visit home, by happy accident David [Ayers, producer] and I arranged to go in the studio, initially for one day – which quickly turned into a week. I thought, wow, this is really beautiful. We found a flow.”

Sarah O Gorman's current official bio concludes with the statement, “Everything about how we made this EP reflects what I find beautiful in songwriting: the seeming anarchy but perfect fluency of the process.”

The story of human adventure, coming home, loops, perfect fluency – these themes describe the experience of hearing “Concrete Rain” very well, the title of which is also a circular kind of paradox. Sarah O Gorman's songs, studio performances and actual personality coalesce in a way that endears the listener to her as if a relationship were actually being formed. And why not?

Asked to describe the intended themes of her debut EP, O Gorman writes, “You are most beautiful, most real and vital when you stand on / come from your soul ground.”

Art like “Concrete Rain” is one of few ways to stand on and come from one's soul ground at the same time.

“Concrete Rain” by Sarah O Gorman and produced by Red Snapper founding member David Ayers is available beginning 11 June 2017 from over 700 quality digital music stores online worldwide. Get in early, soul fans. Very early.

Jazz-fusion artist Person Natalie releases LP 'Gypsy Dance'


The eclectic saxophonist and composer known as Person Natalie has released her latest full-length album, “Gypsy Dance.” The record contains eight original tracks for about 40 minutes of listening. It has been proudly published on the Person Natalie independent record label without the direction of the corporate music industry. Blending elements of jazz, country, R 'n' B and even world music, “Gypsy Dance” may be one of the most stylistically inclusive jazz-fusion records ever recorded.

For her 2014 EP record, Person Natalie listed such artistic influences as Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, Merle Haggard and Motown. For this new, flagship LP release, however, she cites only one: Miles Davis. This is both telling and appropriate of her album, considering the titanic bridges both records build between seemingly disparate music categories.

“This album is intended to be a cross-genre delight,” writes Person Natalie of her record. “It's definitely about enjoying the journey and the positive escape of music, and just letting it develop naturally.”

In addition to the considerable skills of Person Natalie, herself, “Gypsy Dance” also features the talents of players Kye Palmer, Aisha Ewell, and Ron Sanchez. It is her second self-produced album.

“It’s exciting to work with others and I feel very privileged and grateful, especially to David Lewis Luong [producer of her “Dreamy Lullaby” and “Deep as Ocean” releases],” she says. The decision to self-produce her “Gypsy Dance” LP with the aid of her father, a bassist, is a matter of creative expression.

“It feel it's most rewarding to produce on your own (though not easy)” writes Natalie, “when the party you’ve got going on in your head comes to life and translates onto a recording exactly how you intended it – and beyond, really.”

The intuitive sax performer has called “Gypsy Dance” her best studio work to date, but is also quick to reassure, “Oh, I have more up my sleeve,” hinting that her future projects may delve even further into realms outside jazz.

“I have a deep enjoyment of and respect for jazz and those that can play it, as the requirements are very
challenging and keep you thinking,” says Person Natalie, “but I feel more at home and down-to-earth, more relatable, with rock, country and R 'n' B.”

“Gypsy Dance” by Person Natalie becomes available online worldwide 9 June 2017. Get in early, jazz fans. Don't miss her official music video at her official website, link provided below.

Seattle's Paul Azizeh cites as main artistic influences Magnus, Christopher Lawrence, Wes Nesman tha Digital Dragon, and John 00 Fleming. His own sound is firmly based on the traditions and attention to melodies which made turntablism great in the 1980s and '90s, but adds to this his own spin on the post-dubstep electronic dance music scene. The result is an octane-charged groove which will appeal to house music fans from the original digital underground, party-goers of the first raves, and enthusiasts of today's popular EDM festivals altogether.

Electro-goth musician Viii releases singles “Witchlust” and “Rev 22:20”


The music artist of gothic electronica known as Viii has released his second pair of singles for 2017, titled, “Witchlust / Rev 22:20.” The tracks have been proudly published on the Voodoo Creation Records independent music label, along with the rest of the Viii catalog. Bringing the dark, suave sound fans of Viii have come to expect in spades, “Witchlust / Rev 22:20” is the latest reason fans of goth and electronica have to sit up and take notice of this shadowy studio project in 2017.

Viii (pronounced 'Vee') cites as main artistic influences Maynard James Keenan (Tool, A Perfect Circle) Crosses, Banks, Nine Inch Nails, Portishead, Massive Attack, and Prince. In fact, the single's B-side, “Rev 22:20,” is a cover tune of an original track by Puscifer, headed by the legendary Maynard Keenan. This is the second such arrangment for Viii, whose recent “Lovedecay” single came bundled with a B-side cover of “Lovesong” by the Cure.

Asked to describe the themes of his latest single, “Witchlust,” Viii writes, “Witchlust is a song where the protagonist is seduced and manipulated by a girl, going against his morals and becoming a person he hates. After falling and committing to the relationship completely, he is then discarded and left unable to fully connect with future romantic partners – becoming as cold and heartless as the girl that transformed him was.”

The Puscifer cover, “Rev 22:20” makes an erotic play on the prominent Bible verse which begins, “I am coming quickly.” It moves from here to describe a sexual obsession with a beautiful woman who is damaging to the narrator, who implores the listener to refrain from falling under her spell. In this way, the track braids seamlessly with the situation described in “Witchlust.”

“Witchlust / Rev 22:20” by Viii becomes available 2 June 2017 from over 700 quality digital music stores online worldwide.

It's usually an average boy/girl, a geek/underdog who starts realizing they have special powers or abilities. They go through a phase of freaking out, unsure of what is going on with them, not sure how to handle their newfound abilities … But each day, they keep pushing their abilities to find their true potential – and the moment they realize just what they are truly capable of, their whole world changes around them. They feel more in control, more complete and happier than ever before.”

Lay Roo sees the superhero in everyone. This is the message of his “Crazy Sooper Hero Dreams” EP, one which comes out loud and clear in his lyrics.
