Artist Review: Antonio Eye – “Black God Child” EP

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Indie, versatile, and lyrically explosive, Antonio Eye brings us an energetically eclectic breath of fresh air on his visceral self-produced EP Black God Child.

This record is an outpouring of creativity and is incredibly multifaceted, multi-genre and has twists and turns you never see coming with every track. From grungy guitar riffs, creatively crafted spoken word verses and catchy rhythmic choruses, this indie effort is anything but a letdown.

In fact when you begin to get through some of the tracks, you actually sit in awe with how unbelievably solidified this EP is. Antonio brings something fresh-faced to every song and really keeps you captivated with each track’s approach with its eclectic nature and powerful musicianship factors. And even if you attempt to draw any comparisons, you realize that this artist is a creator in his own right and truly exhibits a style that is unlike anything you’ve ever heard.

If you dig soaring guitar riffs, cleverly harmonized vocals and something different offered up through each track, then this brilliantly executed EP is just for you. It has a vast array of multi-genre mixes that’ll absolutely keep you at the edge of your seat.

Artist Review: Matthias Daiber – “Out Of The Blue” LP

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Blissful and dreamlike, LA-based Composer & Producer Matthias Daiber takes us through an atmospheric adventure with his multifaceted Piano and Electronic blends in his new album Out Of The Blue.

This 12-song LP is a masterpiece of its caliber and brings something new to the table with each track, all the while presenting a very recognizable signature sound that shows its presence throughout the record in its entirety and never fails to keep you transfixed on each element of every song.

Matthias‘s piano breathes life into every track with ambient electronic additives that really add a glistening touch throughout every measure. Each song is like a takeoff and landing to a perfect destination while enjoying the ride while making your way there. His approach with each track is very articulated, versatile and very well-crafted. You can’t help but feel a sense of serenity with each measure these songs offer.

The best part is the versatility and originality of the genre mix. With classic light Jazz components and very melodic key signatures that really embody a real soul to his music, Out Of The Blue really showcases every angle of Matthias‘s abilities both as a composer and performer. His ideas are authentic, the moods are very blissful, and the aura that surrounds this album provides an array of emotions that touch the soul.

Out Of The Blue is the perfect album for the innovative pianist putting a modernized touch on today’s more mainstream production value, while staying true to the humble roots of what makes piano the most theoretical instrument of our time. This is a next-level album for anyone that appreciates brilliant piano compositions and today’s more promising production formulas. The album released on October 26th and is currently available on several digital music retailers and streaming platforms. You won’t regret getting a copy!

Artist Review: Caramel Smooth Heaven – “The Shallows” LP

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

With blissful moods, dark dream sequences and subtle landscapes that encompass an atmospheric ambience, Caramel Smooth Heaven delivers an articulate demonstration of cinematic and musically crafted visuals with their single “Blue Clouds.”

Signed to Michigan-based label Kaiseki Digital and taken from their newest album The Shallows which released on October 26th and described as “an atmospheric, nonlinear experience of drowning in the ocean”, CSH is a very visceral production of emotions that captures your attention and psyche in unexpected ways.

The production value is very detailed without being too elaborate, and really connects you to the artistic realm that CSH encompasses with the signature sound that’s being showcased. It’s thought provoking, extremely innovative in its caliber and is very reminiscent of a climactic movie sequence from film creators like Darren Aronofsky and David Lynch.

The song is colorful, eclectic and never loses its pacing. It has great use of multilayering that parallels with the song’s rhythmic flow and subtle tempos, keeping every measure interesting, alive and intact with its wholesomeness and depth as a soundtrack worthy composition.

Everything you hear (and see) in “Blue Clouds” plays a role and has its rightful place in this song, and is the perfect impression for what the rest of the album has to offer. The Shallows is available now on all digital music retailers and streaming platforms, and you’ll thank us later for recommending it.

Artist Review: Goodieboyz – “Rise With Me” Single/Music Video

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

The folks at Goodieboyz have quite a concept. What started as a virtual band eventually manifested into a full-blown indie platform that showcases talent from the creators/originators, as well as feature artists from all over the world that wanna get involved. From musicianship, production, film making and everything under the sun, Goodieboyz have had the opportunity to put together some powerful content with a strong message. Their music video and single “Rise With Me” is one of those musical and visual demonstrations their platform is known for.

This politically supercharged track is heavily anthemic, atmospheric, and touches on concepts that are far too real. The video’s documentary style resonates with the flow of the Hip Hop verses and really parallels the lyrical concepts. Inspired by the band Gorillaz in their beginnings, Goodieboyz touches on a multifaceted multi-genre sound that has elements of rock, soul, rap and many iconic music eras all wrapped up into a modernized track with top-notch production value.

The best part about this song is the realism and outlook – the issues our country suffers from and the encouragement to find a way to make changes for the better by rising up as a whole. It’s a message we have heard in songs before, but never quite like this. The powerful guitar progressions and driving rhythms really helps propel this message forward, all the while providing a visual context behind the message in the video that really grabs at your attention and makes you think about the world we live in today, and how we can change it for the better.

“Rise With Me” is just as powerful in visual content as it is musically, and that’s what makes this single the gem it really is. You’ll be passing this video around to everyone you know after watching it – and you’ll definitely be keeping tabs on what Goodieboyz has up their sleeves in the near future.

    Artist Review: DBT – “Out Of Darkness” Single

    Review by: Justyn Brodsky

    Dark, hypnotic and full of ambience, we get a bass-driven sonic force from DBT‘s newest single “Out Of Darkness.”

    With subtle buildups and ascending measures that keep our anticipation in the limelight of our attention, this track keeps you completely transfixed on where the song goes next. Though it isn’t structured with any real intricacies, it’s actually the simple elements this song delivers that is most effective. And that’s what makes DBT a much needed breath of fresh air – it’s EDM without all the convoluted post production theatrics we hear far too often.

    The song flows very well and sustains great pacing. The female vocal melodies are placed correctly and really bring a cinematic edge to the overall sound, which gives each measure more versatility and likability factors as the track plays out. It’s climactic, but not explosive. This song hits a medium ground that fits appropriately and anything extra than what is already there could risk saturating the track – but we don’t get any of that here. It’s apparent that DBT chooses wisely when it comes to piecing it all together and keeps the importance of crafty songwriting structures at the forefront.

    However, this song has plenty of innovation and originality that helps carry the torch throughout the song’s overall execution. There’s a familiarity in the airwaves as each element of the song’s aura plays out. But at the same time, it showcases a multifaceted wave of freshness that we can really resonate with and identify with uniquely. And that’s what makes “Out Of Darkness” the gem that it really is.

    If you’re looking for the next feel-good EDM track that is chill yet still provides that bass-booming edginess, then “Out Of Darkness” will be one of your new favorites inevitably.
