With a passion for fashion and leaving an everlasting impression with his versatile vocal compositions, R&B singer Phillip Gilchrist will do you no wrong. He’s very multifaceted, melodic and really gives your ears quite the treat. His signature sound is perfect for today’s Pop and R&B realm and really proves it two-fold with his newest single “Song On The Radio.”

Not trying to be witty or anything, but this song definitely should be on the radio. The catchiness of the chorus on this song is one you’d definitely hear on any Top 10 radio countdown. Phillip‘s voice really carries the torch on this track with his mid-to-high vocal range and really sings with his own stylization reminiscent of Ne-Yo, Usher and others of a similar caliber. This song is definitely for the ladies though; it’s sexy, has plenty of swagger and really gets the sweat going once the track starts to move you. Whether you’re in a club or by yourselves, this song’s magic takes you with it.

This song has some incredible power that goes way passed the radio, but definitely sharpens the edges of a solid hit that could cut through the airwaves. It’s a home run, touch down, and goal all at once. The production value is right where it needs to be, the post production doesn’t have unnecessary antics and the authenticity of the vocal progressions are naturally executed. Once you take a listen to “Song On The Radio,” you’ll be keeping tabs on Phillip Gilchrist‘s career, including an EP he currently has in the works. You can find this current single on Spotify, Apple Music, and several other digital music streaming platforms.

Exclusive Review: Kevin Sihwan – “Catch Up” Album

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Cover Art of Kevin Sihwan’s “Catch Up” Album

When it comes to Philly/NYC’s Kevin Sihwan, DJing is the name of the game, along with the mastering of production value. Originally hailing from South Korea, Kevin has always sustained an insatiable passion for the electronically infused genre and the prospect of creating music throughout the EDM world. Once he came to the states to attend school in Philadelphia, that passion would come to fruition with his amazing energies and versatile six track banger, “Catch Up.”

Well, we certainly caught up with Kevin‘s album, and it has quite the ability to turn heads when it comes to multifaceted EDM stylizations. Title track “Catch Up” really sets the tone nicely with its bassy forefront and really utilizes buildups effectively while also being able to change moods. Don’t let the bass get ya! But it certainly will. The structure is dynamic, flows consistently and never tries to outdo itself. “Fallout” continues with its intensity-driven buildups and breakdowns, leaving no stone unturned when it comes to really putting a signature tone on the production value. It’s definitely the most melodic track and definitely resonates between one sequence to the next. The synth parts are beautifully crafted and really helps carry the torch when it comes to the album’s versatility.

“Bassline” has a little bit of a change of pace and adds a fun Hip Hop edge with excellent video game pacing. This track’s interlude is definitely anthemic and really flows perfectly with the feature vocal track. It’s another solid demonstration of what Kevin can do behind a mixing board, and never strays himself far from his own creative signature sound. This track just might end up being your favorite. “Rolling Thunder” showcases more drums and synths than anything and truly gives every angle of this track strength. The “whoa!” parts of this track definitely add a very significant touch that really keeps the listener focused and willing to stay for the whole ride. “Dance All Night” and “Get To Me” are perfect closing tracks to this record. While “Dance All Night” sticks to a similar formula to the previous tracks, it’s the 90’s and Rhodes Blues influences this song offers up with a very effective female vocal feature that truly makes this closer a gem. It’s a softer touch compared to the other tracks, but adds so much charm to the point where this change up can be perfectly warranted. It has melodic structure that really steps up to the plate, a visceral vibe and untouchable likability factors .

“Catch Up” starts and ends with a bang. These can easily be club hitters that could get any dance floor moving and any crowd vibing. While the record has its twists and turns, it still sticks to that signature sound that Kevin Sihwan manifests from the beginning – and never lets up. This is a six-track record that will blow the lid off any EDM enthusiast, and the production value is one of many reasons, but a crucial one to say the least. “Catch Up” is a melodic journey of buildups and breakdowns that everyone will love. The record is currently available on YouTube, Spotify and several other digital music streaming platforms.

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

Cover Art of Thraeyce’s Album “Multifaceted”

If there’s one thing that can be said for sure about Thraeyce‘s newest record, it’s that the album name does absolute justice. This exceptionally multifaceted, versatile and electronically infused 7-track juggernaut is a futuristic album that enriches each listener with a hypnotic listening experience full of twists, turns, and atmospheric textures.

“Multifaceted” utilizes several eclectic genre blends that tastefully include touches of Pop, Alternative, and all kinds of electro-goodness; conjuring a signature sound that is wholesome, detailed and captivatingly catchy to contagious levels. “Run” is a more-than-solid opener that could be reminiscent of a more modernized Annie Lenox while still keeping the originality out in the forefront. “Let There Be Love” has an insatiably catchy chorus that really jumps at you and dynamically showcases Thraeyce‘s musicianship factors from many angles. The production value is very technical and encapsulates an ambiance that concentrates diligently on balance and composure, giving the listener a sense of nostalgia from earlier electronic influences, but still touches on equal parts originality and familiarity; bringing together a collective of songs that is freshly innovative in its approach, but also sustains an identifiability that provides a trademark vibe.

The banger on this record is definitely “F**k It Up,” a song that has a buildup of intensity heard rarely in today’s EDM spectrum. It has a video game pacing and Kill Bill kind of package that still manages to provide beautifully textured melodies underlying the track. The relentlessly smashing beat and gang vocals will have you chanting along with this song any day of the week, and the multi layering in all the right places is a component that truly makes this track a real gem. It’s a furiously quick fix that satisfies in full and really comes out swinging once it really gets going. You won’t walk away unhappy after blasting this one in your Sony Xplodes.

“Study” is hypnotic and beautifully crafted in a way that combines vocal melodies and effective synth progressions. It puts a finely tuned mood and unwavering lyrical passion all in one place that comes together in an aura that can really create a visceral listening experience. Meanwhile “Renegade” and “Here For You” are more upbeat and melodically focused throughout more of the instrumental measures both songs articulate. They’re comforting songs that close out this record with enticement to delve deeper into Thraeyce‘s career both past and present, but definitely looking into her future releases as well. Overall, “Multifaceted” really raises the bar when it comes to electronic music mixes and all the production components that are required to compose, create, manifest and innovate with tastefully clever ideas that resonate with fans of the genre. In whole, Thraeyce successfully achieves that feat and so much more with every track this record offers. “Multifaceted” is available now on Spotify, Apple Music and several other digital music streaming platforms. You’ll thank us later for recommending it.

Exclusive Review: ANTDUAN – “Rain Drops” Single

Cover Art of ANTDUAN’s single “Rain Drops”

When it comes to mastering your craft and manifesting into a versatile artist with multifaceted musical strengths, ANTDUAN is one of those very musicians out in the front lines of the industry at large. Utilizing an electronic-infused and atmospheric signature sound to set the tone and conjure hypnotic moods, his hit single “Rain Drops” does complete justice – and for all the right reasons.

From defying all odds, having an insatiable passion and love for music at age 8 years old, the Thailand-based rising artist became determined to create his own stylization of art and win over hearts. Taking a massive interest in music production for several forms of electronic music in particular, ANTDUAN quickly enough began to compose, create, manifest and innovate with a style that honed a foundation of an electro-vibe approach merged with Techno, Deep House and other sub genres of the electronic spectrum that would put his name on the map. And his hypnotically bassy single “Rain Drops” is a solid demonstration of these elements coming to fruition.

This track’s intro grasps a sense of anticipation that is almost nail-biting, but soon enough thrusts you into an aura of diligently crafted synth-melodies, inventive key signatures, progressions, and a classic drum and bass beat with multi-layers of modern flavors that make this track a standout of its kind. The subtlety is almost mysterious but still has that bright spot in the song’s dark atmosphere that leads you down a path of beautifully crafted rhythms, keyboard textures and additives that blend in ingredients of a sound that borderlines love, lust, and the adventures of the mind. These textures sound like actual rain drops themselves, which makes “Rain Drops” not only a title that does justice to the song, but the cleverness as well when it comes to the track’s duration of attentiveness to detail.

“Rain Drops” is a brilliant demonstration of ANTDUAN‘s ability in the producer’s chair and really showcases one of his many angles of musical visions. It’s the type of song that will entice you to look more into his discography from the past, present, as well as future. The single can be found on YouTube, Apple Music, Spotify and several other digital music streaming platforms. Once you take a listen yourself, you’ll see (and hear) exactly why ANTDUAN continues to be a driving force among the Electronic and EDM universe.
