Exclusive Review: Matty Marz – “Mine” Single

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

Some artists and producers really hit it out of the park when it comes to exclusive singles. As opposed to an entire album, a single gives an artist a true opportunity to shine bright on a single track that really showcases their craft and versatility. Matty Marz does exactly that with his fresh new single “Mine”, and really pulls out all the stops in all the right places.

Emerging from the landscapes of New York, Matty Marz comes out of the gate with a fire hot signature sound that diligently combines elements of Pop, Dance, Indie and everything in between. “Mine” jumps right into action with an eclectic groove that is bound to raise eyebrows from the second it starts. Utilizing top notch production value, smooth bass lines and dynamically witty rhyming techniques, Matty puts together a song that truly captures his essence and aura. It has hints of superstar qualities reminiscent of industry heavyweights like Prince, Bruno Mars, Jason Mraz, John Mayer and others of a similar caliber, but on a much more original angle.

The lyrics are excellently crafted with a very colorful lyric video to provide some very effective visuals as the track plays out. With strong vocal melodies at the helm of every measure, you’ll never find yourself getting bored of this song by any means. In fact, it’s a song you could easily throw on repeat and love it every time. But it’s no surprise coming from an artist that’s been classically trained since the age of 12. Matty Marz seriously crushes it on this single and that can’t be stressed enough.

“Mine” is currently available on Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, and several other digital music streaming platforms. Check into this one if you want a taste of something fresh, but also cleverly familiar.

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.

Neoborn Caveman – “12 Days of Love” Single

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

Neoborn Caveman has graced our platform before. And the more we get to know him, the more versatility of his musical stature comes to light. His single “12 Ways of Love” is definitely a rollercoaster ride of one of his many angles of multifaceted goodness that truly shines on a path that bridges the gap between originality and familiarity; giving us even more insight into NC‘s soundscapes and artistic merit.

Utilizing a more electronically infused signature sound, from beginning to end, NC‘s vocals resonate both lyrically and rhythmically parallel. And that’s what makes this song truly unique – we get to indulge into NC‘s vocal abilities in ways that are multilayered with standouts of their own.

The usage of EDM is very anthemic and organized. Everything flows melodically much like his other material, but, “12 Ways of Love” is a modern treat for the ears that brings forth a futuristic sound that is also comprised of many familiar vocal melody structuring. And that’s another facet of this song – structuring. We get genre-bending elements that are surprising but still smoothly transitioned in a way that doesn’t throw the song off. Oh, and the subtlety in NC‘s voice manages to sustain perfectly alongside his musical character. The many elements used to suspend every measure of this song is chosen wisely and crafted carefully. This song has twists and turns, but never strays from its actual foundation that the track starts with. “12 Ways Of love” is one big dose of versatility with its own sense of sweetness, splendor and charm all doused in one electronic package of compelling production value.

“12 Ways of Love” releases August 31st and will be available everywhere including all digital music streaming platforms.

Exclusive Review: Kevin Sihwan – “Catch Up” Album

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

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.
