Artist Review: Rolf Schnyder – “Orange Punk” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

With a swift 80’s style of synth-infused song structures with today’s modern sensibility, we get an unwavering shot of adrenaline with Switzerland-based artist’s Rolf Schnyder‘s single “Orange Punk”.

This is no ordinary song, and will have you raising your eyebrows and tipping your glasses to its originality, energy and multifaceted signature style. Rolf serves up a song that is like a shockwave of EDM as if it took place back in the 80’s era, but with a modern energetic twist. It’s completely unexpected and really comes out swinging at the very first measure of the track. It hints at some Jazz-influenced fills and really captivates your attention; it’s definitely a song that will have you delving deeper into Rolf‘s discography and future releases.

The song structure is not complex, which is what makes it even more charming. The instrumental track doesn’t have one measure or structure that strays you from the song’s intended impact and really throws itself at you in a way that’ll keep you coming back. It’ll require more than one listen; your first initial reaction will be “wow, what did I just listen to?!” And in a great way. This is the type of song you’ll be passing along to friends.

Rolf is a very renowned musician in his home country and is really on the rise as he continues to pump out new releases. “Orange Punk” in particular is a versatile and visceral listening experience that will really entice you to research more into what Rolf has to offer. His style has many angles and never fails to keep you focused and interested in seeing (and hearing) what he has in store next. “Orange Punk” is currently available on Spotify, iTunes, and other digital music platforms and music streaming platforms. We can’t recommend this song highly enough, and once you take a listen yourself, you’ll be recommending it too.

Artist Review: Prophett – “Hold Onto Me” Single

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

When it comes to getting your body moving, and getting the beats and vibes juicin’, Prophett means serious business with his latest single “Hold Onto Me”.

Accompanied by an official music video with some scenic and dynamically shot cinematography, this track is one for the books on Prophett‘s catalogue of catchy releases with his vibrantly hooky style. This song comes out swinging in the first frame and never wavers. The funky and fresh beat with a perfect Hip Hop and Salsa combo gives this song the versatility it needs to truly stand out. Whether it’s in your favorite club hotspot or Sony Xplodes car system, this track should be spinning, no matter the occasion.

This song, like the video portrays, gives us a tasteful insight into Prophett‘s craft, sing-songy vocal style, image and swagger that’s properly presented with beautiful outdoor scenery and all about “rocking” throughout the night. It’s a track that really puts the audio and imagery on equal playing grounds and truly gives this single the best platform and portrayal it could muster. The lyrics are masterfully smooth, the production value is top notch, and this song is mainstream-worthy in every way.

If this is the first time discovering Prophett, you’ll be seriously glad you did.

Artist Review: (dIG) dEM iSBY gIRLS – “School Days”

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Glistening vocals, ambient beat structures, and a futuristic hypnotic vibe that combines the best of yesterday’s and today’s R&B is what makes dEM iSBY gIRLS (aka dIG) a gem within their own right with their freshest single “School Days”.

The voices are subtle, magnetic, and brings you to a realm of a laid-back feel that really encompasses a sound that is very visceral, ethereal, and multifaceted. Their versatile approach in “School Days” is not your every day track; it resonates with a style that touches on originality and familiarity, giving their audience a taste of something new yet still identifiable. The vocal personas also touch on different factors, landscapes, and really give each vocal component a life of its own, which is what makes dIG a group that lives up to their name. You will dig them, and really find your listener’s niche with their hypnotic style of singing.

Another part of this song is the likability factors – the sing doesn’t carry on too long, has great runtime in its duration, and is a track you can come back to time and time again. It has that staying power – the power to really stay with you even after the song is over. Regardless, you will find unconditional love for this song; and keep you in anticipation of what dIG comes out with next. They won’t disappoint.

Artist Review: Spursy – “Neon” Single

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

Some of today’s artists really know how to put a true edge to the reminiscence of yesterday’s 80s iconic sound without succumbing to plagiarism techniques or obvious direct similarities to the music of any era, but executed more in a way where the artist’s homage to the era is more reinvented or reimagined in their own way and brought out in a mainstream realm of quality. And this is exactly the type of feat Spursy brings to the table with his signature sound from his single “Neon”.

This track definitely has a glow from the very beginning of the track, and never wavers from the concept’s funky riffs, tight knit rhythm section and Duran Duran style vocals – however all executed in a way that is compellingly original. The vocal range and lyrical outbursts of Spursy is completely versatile, multifaceted, and never wavers from its authenticity, balance and composure.

Each verse is doused with that 70s/80s synthy sound we’ve all come to know, love, and miss dearly. So it’s a refreshing and tasteful feel throughout the vocal combination. And once all of this takes place, the song’s structure melts us with an insatiably earth halting chorus that truly ties it all together to make “Neon” light up the room, your earphones, and everything in between that puts this song in the forefront of your listening experience. You truly can not go wrong with this song.

From the old school songwriting sensibilities to today’s mainstream production quality – it just doesn’t get any better than this.

Artist Review: frafri – Thank You For So Much, Sorry For So Little” LP

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

A lot of producers & creators showcase their best work through their musical visions and audio expressions through sound, especially when it comes to the instrumental aspect. frafri‘s 15-track LP Thanks For So Much, Sorry For So Little is a clear demonstration into the mind of exactly that – the thought process and execution of instrumental expression and the moods and structures that parallel the songwriting structures as a way to get into the mind of a creator.

And that’s the kind of LP frafri has put together, a record of many visceral moods, innovative beats, and the brilliant use of guitar sequences and synthesizers that really set the tone for each track. From subtle buildups, explosively climactic measures and anthemic melody choices throughout the album, each song delves into a form of expression that steers along the lines of ominous emotions, and feelings that are thought provoking.

And that’s one of my favorite parts about frafri‘s latest collection of tracks – the ambience and versatility that really sets this album apart from anything else within its caliber. But I don’t necessarily mean “experimental” when it comes to that particular term, because these songs are diligently put together and definitely brilliantly structured. They flow together like chapters in a book, and scream loudly with narratives even though this album doesn’t have. But the biggest component to this record is the creative use of instruments – from introverted guitar parts to a vast array of keys and synths providing the atmosphere. After listening to all 15-tracks in their entirety, you begin to draw the full picture in your mind. The full picture that this album delivers a full, flavorful sound with wholesome totality – and you find yourself resonating with every measure both musically, and visually.

Artist Review: Sassy Vee – “I Should Go” & “Emotional” Singles

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

A gem like Sassy Vee is a girl with a vision and a girl with a vibe. She’s an absolute trifecta in the bigger picture altogether – she has class, beauty, and insatiable talent that is passionately utilized in her own signature style of music that is compellingly catchy, lyrically visceral and atmospherically ambient. And she showcases these very crucial components in her anchor singles “I Should Go” and “Emotional”. Two tracks with different eclectic approaches, but diligently executed by Sassy herself no matter what elements each song presents itself with. These are two very versatile tracks that truly bring you into the musical realm that Sassy delivers to the forefront; and never wavers from her flavorful sound she carries with her throughout every song that leaves you refreshed and aching to hear more.

“I Should Go” is a great mid-pacing yet subtle song that serves up as a flavorful modern treat into today’s Pop sensibility with Indie elements. From lyrically visceral and eased-up verses that beautifully showcase Sassy‘s voice as more of a clever and delicate buildup, the verses really caress her vocal textures and tenderness that really shows her authenticity. It’s the perfect buildup of soft-sung narratives before the powerful chorus jumps in to tie the song together with Sassy‘s wholesome vocal dubs and mid-to-high range melodies. She truly grasps onto the song’s aura and key signature to write and perform the perfect balance and composure for this track, and really puts her strengths right out to the forefront. She clearly has a knack for writing vocal parts that are not only catchy, but compelling as well, and really puts forth a style that touches on equal parts originality and familiarity, giving her audience a taste of something fresh yet still identifiable.

Her second single “Emotional” is more R&B-infused and reminiscent of the classic Motown Records era with tasteful mixtures of today’s more authentic and eclectic Soul inspired artists that perform R&B the way it was meant to be. The track is more charismatic, fun, and shows a different angle to Sassy‘s lyrical techniques and artistic merit. It’s a track that any R$B listener can appreciate, including previous generations that witnessed the manifestation of the genre, and the components that came with it. “Emotional” is also a song that truly sings from, and speaks to the soul. It resonates with the truly passionate music fan that wants to delve into an artist’s true core, to see and hear who they really are as a songwriter. All the while relating to the song in a whole, and finding out how they can identify with it.

Overall, Sassy‘s singles are triumphant, meaningful and really bring out different angles of her talent and songwriter. She’s a rare gem among many artists of her caliber, and has a very promising prospect of what 2019 has in store for her, as well as beyond. By the sounds of it – Sassy Vee is not going anywhere, anytime soon. It’s artists like her that today’s music really yearns for.
