Artist Review: D-Smoke – “Problems” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky & Nate Broshears

Some Hip Hop just can not be ignored. And that’s exactly the case when NYC rapper D-Smoke dropped his single “Problems”.

With a vocal delivery reminiscent of a more polished Dr. Dre, D-Smoke brings a flow and versatility that touches on both originality and familiarity. “Problems” is one of those tracks that not only catches your attention, but demonstrates this rapper’s artistic merit perfectly as well.

From a very well executed beat structure to an old school conceptual audio sample to fill the shoes of the hook, D-Smoke‘s musicianship is something heavily expressed in his content, context, and vocal overtone. With rhymes that are witty and clever, “Problems” is a song that isn’t too convoluted to follow; it’s a track you can latch onto, and come back time and time again to find something new to appreciate. It’s a song that just doesn’t get old and never loses its impact.

With NYC being an elite music scene, it can sometimes be flooded. Every musician and artist wants their music to garner attention and stand out; but D-Smoke is gonna have a lot less aggravation to deal with, primarily because he figured out the key ingredient to getting your music to stand out, and it’s one that every artist thinks is a secret: outstanding songwriting.

There, now you have the secret. The search is over. But D-Smoke already has this down. So while the fire is lit as he continues to climb his way to the top, be sure to check out “Problems” and see exactly how D-Smoke implements the music industry’s best kept secret.

Artist Review: NuJ4X – “Dab (On Dem Haterz)” Music Video/Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky & Michael Annotti

There is a lot of hype coming from the noise tank of EDM and its varieties. But when it comes to Nashville’s NuJ4X, we have a take on the genre with a much more multifaceted angle.

Combining a pounding rhythm and Hip Hop lyrical components, we have an explosive audio and visual package with NuJ4X‘s versatile single “Dab (On Dem Haterz). A song that is equally powerful to watch just as much as it is to listen.

Combining the concept of a lyric video and a found-footage spectrum with some innovative video editing, we have a track and music video that share perfect parallels. From dynamic vocal structures to infectiously catchy hooks, we have a chemistry of EDM that utilizes mainstream-worthy elements, and new ones that add a whole new flavor to it. It’s the type of video that needs to be seen to be believed.

Best of all, there are no cheat methods at play here. We don’t hear relentless auto-tune or overuse of plugins; we have a well-crafted track with outstanding execution and production value that any fan of the genre can appreciate. NuJ4X charisma and personality antics are also great additives. One thing most noticeable is the simplicity of the overall aura – we hear real music delivered up by a DJ with insatiable skills behind the turntables.

Once you grasp onto the track’s energy and stylization along with the overall content that “Dab (On Dem Haterz)” offers, you’ll be more than glad we told you about NuJ4X. Ultra Fest…we’re talking to you.

Pre-Release: Ty Ill

Article by: Justyn Brodsky


ORIGINS:

Hailing from the West Side of Baltimore, Ty Ill is a young aspiring Rapper currently honing his craft and coming into his own style and signature sound, and so far is hitting the ground running.

With anchor influences like Nas, Biggie, 2Pac, and Jay-Z, Ty started out by performing at his local open mics, opening him up to the scene and garnering a presence in his stomping grounds. It was then that he realized that music and performing had a major impact on his life and decided to expand his horizons by writing his own material. 

At age 17, he wrote his debut album Hard Living that ended up being self-produced with a childhood friend, Badinfo at Spitters Club Studio, which is run by Shaka Pitts, who currently owns Pitt Fights Battle League.

Ty Ill’s first professional studio effort was in Junior High among himself and a few classmates, when one of their teachers who owns a studio caught wind of their rhyming skills and offered Ty and his friends some free studio time. This experience set a fire under Ty Ill, and his determination set in even more.

PRE-RELEASE ANNOUNCEMENT:

Currently, Ty is in the process of dropping his first single “Hip Hop”  (featuring Don Trunk) which is being produced by 440Tuned at Dream 1st Studio. There will be another single dropping soon after, being distributed through Tidal, ITunes, Spotify, and other streaming platforms. 

With his eyes on the prize and mind determined to shine, it won’t be long til Ty Ill will be in the spotlight. In the meantime, keep your eyes open for his single “Hip Hop” dropping next Monday, May 30th. An EP is slated for release in 2017.
