Artist Review: Julia Rose – “Touch My Body” Official Music Video

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Think of Katy Perry and Alanis Morissette cross breeding, and you get the charismatic and catchy touch of  Julia Rose.

Her single “Touch My Body”  (accompanied by a very dynamic and colorful Music Video) is not only something recognizably lovable with the genre it fits in, but has the perfect balance between 90s classic Pop sound and today’s sensibility wrapped up into one tasty package. 

She really sustains an amazing aura, not just with her movements and ability of being in front of the camera, but in her vocal approach as well. Her range is perfect for a song like this and it even offers up a bridge and breakdown with a middle-eastern influence as well. It’s almost like Pop Culture shock, but that’s perhaps one of the most lovable parts about the production value and song altogether.

Julia Rose plays a very colorful and sensual role in this video, but also shows a very merciless side to herself with her knack for keeping things rough and moving forward effectively as the song plays on. The concept, though a simple one, is beautifully executed, and gives you that Aronofski feeling after watching the video. 

The back drops are kept simple, but I am more than certain that it was intended completely. The characters in this video also grasp onto a type of lighting that makes everything cinematic, effective, and unique with the talent in the cutting room. The editing is on-point and parallels with the song extremely well. Which is another captivating and defining factor to the entire vibe being placed right in front of you.

Overall, in my opinion, there’s no way you could dislike this song or video. It has that modern edge-of-your-seat feel while a perfectly mid-ranged Julia Rose encompasses you with her commercial-worthy vocal melodies and brilliant vocal tones that perfectly match her sensibility of combining beauty, edge, sexuality and sensuality. This is strictly candy for the eyes and ears.

Artist Review: Anton Cullen – “Breaking Through” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky


EDM with 8-bit Nintendo Plugins and melodies? Sign me up!

Anton Cullen is an elite EDM producer and has a sound with a lot of twists and turns with his song “Breaking Through”. From clever progressions, memorable structures, and sound-effective melodies with a video-game spin, we get served a great value of production, tasty measures of melody, and brilliantly diverse song structures with buildups and breakdowns that compliment each other throughout the song’s captivating stride.

There’s a lot of unexpected fun breakdowns in this track that really showoff Cullen‘s versatility, which gives it a raw and original approach. It’s witty, danceable, and could easily be deemed as a club track or even a straight rave track you could loosen up your mind to, and just take what’s coming with its energy, aura, and nostalgic realm.

It’s something you can play just about anywhere; even your car to test out those new Sony Xplodes. Stuff like that. It’s not generic, but is very universal and holds a very unique balance in between being radio friendly, and straight-up gritty. It’s a toss up really (depending on the Disc Jockey).

No matter how you take this song in, Anton Cullen is new food for the ear. This has that sensibility that’ll definitely have you coming back to the song time and time again. The likability factors are there, so in my eyes, you’re gonna love this track too. Now go listen!

Artist Review: Hefe Heetroc

Review by: Justyn Brodsky


When it comes to versatility, energy, craft, and witty lyrics with a space-themed EDM Rock influence to Hip Hop, you just might do justice to Hefe Heetroc artistic merit.

One thing is for sure, I haven’t heard something quite as raw and original as this in quite some time. So if you’re looking for new food for the ear with a shot of adrenaline, then Mr. Heetroc is your draft pick. His breed of Hip Hop is not only fresh, but it also sustains elements of the 90s glory days, old school Rap, and today’s Indie scene with a very heavy edge.

This is definitely a genre bender. His track “I Already Got That” is the perfect demonstration of the energy-driven EDM and Rock/Metal chemistry that is not only cleverly structured into Hip Hop, but multilayered and multifaceted as well. First off, if you’re a fan of Aqua Teen Hunger Force, then this is definitely for you. We have a high-range vocal approach that is very commercial-worthy, but has a very indie forefront that showcases great charisma, intelligently crafted verses, and daring beat structures that will leave you at the edge of your seat. So if you want something in-your-face and merciless, then this is your anthem.

Carrying the torch over to the next track, “Addiction Tonight”, we still get the perfect EDM factor that puts the outfit on Hefe Heetroc to give him the character he deserves, and the originality that’s been displayed. Toned down a bit from the last track, we have another genre-bender with Heetroc‘ signature vocal style that puts his likability factors on overdrive.

And same thing goes for “Deep Space Stars Galaxy”. Another charismatic track with great multi layers of energy and charismatic chemistry. This surrounds more of the overall theme of what Hefe Heetroc carries with him as a lyricist, but still shows different angles of his craft and overall defining factors. Regardless, you’re gonna find something energetic, clever, and completely compelling.

There’s so much you could say about this take on Hip Hop, but regardless of how you find the words, you’ll only have the best things to say about Hefe Heetroc. Here’s some advice going into it though: strap yourself in for the ride.

Artist Review: Ricardo Padua – “Endless” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky & Dave Welsh


A new anthem has hit the club scene. And this one will have you loving every measure, every melody, and the EDM glory it glamorizes.

This anthem is GRAMMY Award Winner Ricardo Padua‘s “Endless”. The song’s 3-minute runtime definitely doesn’t make this song endless, but the impression it’ll make on you just might be an endless one. Padua‘s charismatic vocal range encompasses the track’s progression, and the production value perfectly showcases his vocal delivery and melody-driven lyrics.

And to me, that’s where the strength in this song lies — the vocal melody. It definitely carries the torch for this track, and defines it completely. The singer’s range has proper placements in both the mid-range and high-range in this track’s unforgettable verses. And each verse has a very subtle-yet-energetic buildup, before the energy-fueled chorus kicks in with the perfect club goers vibe. It’s a strong one, and definitely entices you to research more of what tricks Ricardo Padua has up his sleeves.

I’ve had a lot of EDM cross my path, and this is definitely one of the more memorable tracks with even more ear-catchy vocal melodies that we’ve heard in awhile. “Endless” is one of those tracks that DJs should be spinning endlessly wherever EDM and Dance graces its presence. Because the truth is in the title; this is a song you’ll love, endlessly.

Artist Review: Dobie

Review by: Justyn Brodsky


With an energetic yet sensual exercise in the best of yesterday’s and today’s EDM sensibilities, DJ/Producer Dobie brings us a catchy and versatile mix down with his song “Ballade Pour”.

This is a very upbeat song with a lot of charisma, consistency, and quality in the production value. It’s a perfect rave and clubbing song with great post-production additives and presents a dynamic persona with the spoken word narratives this track also has.

Dobie‘s artistic merit encompasses emotion, and the most effective way to express it. His inspirations behind his melodies also come from emotional aspects, and therefore feels what he writes, rather than just hears. Thus demonstrates his passion for his craft, and really speaks volumes about his overall persona as an artist. I’m eager to hear what Dobie‘s music manifests in the future as he continues to write, record, and release the music he’s passionate about. And it’s definitely something you’ll identify with when you take a listen to “Ballade Pour”. You won’t be disappointed.

Artist Review: Joe Kool

Review by: Justyn Brodsky


When it comes to music that never skips a beat, renowned DJ, Joe Kool, delivers the goods with his 30-minute charismatic and upbeat run-through of “This One’s Kool” from his Deep Frequency Mix Sessions; a record of twists and turns, bumps and grinds, and extremely dynamic production value.

The esteemed artist is no stranger to the turntables and has garnered critical acclaim along with an escalating fan base over the years from his insatiable experience in the field of House Music and its components to the genre; opening a world of opportunity to compose and create, to put his vision into an audio reality.

His beats have an old school approach, but have that powerful, punchy edge of today’s sensibility. It’s a brilliant 30-minute segment that’d be perfect for an event like Ultrafest. And though you can hear relentless House artist influences, there’s still a dynamic and versatile edge that makes Joe Kool stand out on his own. His transitioning between samples and the beats are smooth and never stray away from its formula. It has that classic 90s feel with today’s rhythmic and straight-forward production.

I’ve come across a lot of DJ mixes and House artists over the years, and it’s absolutely refreshing to hear something that doesn’t drench you in overpost-production, where the true character of a song or artist might be saturated or overdone. Joe Kool keeps it completely real, and his mixing and mastering efforts on “This One’s Kool” definitely does justice for his DJ abilities.

Artist Review: Sienna – “Quintessence” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky


When it comes to production value, it’s all about the elements of how and why a song is effective, and the uniqueness that is carried with it. We get an innovative, punchy, knockout beat banger with Producer Sienna‘s single “Quintessence”. A bump-and-grind go-getter track that brings a vibrant and bass-oriented chemistry to the table that puts solidification into musical innovation.

With a lot of today’s creators in the world of EDM, it’s imperative to showcase your versatility and composing ability in the best way possible, so you can give yourself and your audience an in-depth impression of your expression. Sienna has a very well-rounded craft with this track, and the intensity of the rotund low end combined with the anticipation from the song’s buildup is what really makes this track the gem that it really is.

If you have a bass-thumping sound system, then “Quintessence” will likely rumble through your entire neighborhood. It’s energetic, witty, clever, and has some great twists and turns as the song builds into a beautiful climax. It has a simple approach in its beginnings, and I believe it’s the type of simplicity that really makes this track effective when all the other elements play out.

Sienna definitely has a brilliant ear for detail and is worth checking out in every way. She delivers the goods with this single, and you’ll probably find yourself doing more research on more of her music after cranking “Quintessence” through your speakers.
