Doug Ferony and his big-band sound are one of a kind at present, and this single is the perfect starting point for those who are new to his music or who are seeking out that authentic, historically rooted yet fresh and colourful jazz and swing aura.
Jay Spangler has written a retro yet classic tune for his latest single I Don’t Get You At All. Though it’s something of a grower, the track quickly manages to impress with its long-form melody and exploration of that central concept.
YHN Hammertime ticks a lot of boxes in terms of the sound of contemporary hip hop, offering melody and relatable ideas – along with character and familiarity all at once.
There’s depth & intention to the song – as was the way with punk-rock back during the dawn of the genre; the songs were there to rebel against societal ‘normality’. Conscious lyrics were reinforced by emotional & striking performances that were clearly connected to the words at hand. That’s precisely what you get here. FUCK THIS NOISE is an absolute anthem.
More Than Sex is one of his best to emerge yet – the quality and the heart that has gone into the writing is mighty. A definite hit for 2019 and one well worth adding to the long-term playlist.
The performance stands out for the passion and character that’s presented throughout. In the same instance, the music is so laid back, but it pays tribute to the classic, simple yet hard-hitting riffs and beats that played the backdrop to some of hip hop’s more historical classics.
Enzo’s way with sound design and composition is quickly effective, this track is stunning and showcases a passionate and simultaneously professional approach to music production.
Snake is a rightfully scathing song that addresses the need to let go and move away from anyone who deliberately disrespects you or breaks your trust. Bonds take time to build, so those who knowingly bend or break them don’t deserve the time of day – a difficult but often necessary truth, and something the song Snake takes to the limit.
Hip Hop rhythms combine with RnB melodies and a dreamlike, trip hop soundscape on this single from Gunzo XL.
The song has a defiantly addictive quality – the chemistry is on point, so the next step is to purely and professionally craft the ambiance around those central ideas; which is precisely what Kaiku has done.
Streak Desperado provides a gentle and dreamlike backdrop on this single – the perfect ambiance within which the artist Pegasus can offer up his mellow yet conceptually intense lyricism, in an appropriately rhythmic yet near-spoken-word style delivery.
Play With Me is an anthem, a shared sentiment of togetherness – and a song we’ll almost certainly be hearing more of as the summer months and the festival season approaches.
