This feel-good track definitely delivers all the goods from innovative lyrical content to overall production value and everything in between. It’s a subtle and though-provoking song that really gets the listener engaged into every measure GMO articulates. The pacing is well executed and the flow parallels perfectly with it.

Artist Review: Sasha Prendes – “Brooklyn” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

NYC’s Brooklyn Borough has a new anthem, and the city itself has a powerful voice representing it with Sasha Prendes‘ new smash single “Brooklyn.”

This artist fast-on-the-rise has the beauty, brains and talent, making her the perfect trifecta. But this especially shows in this new single with the rhythmic grooves, catchy chord progressions and authentically captivating vocals that have amassed Sasha a very promising industry buzz since this song dropped.

It’s reminiscent of other city anthems that we’ve all come to know (ie: Frank Sinatra, Jay-Z, Alicia Keys…) but with a whole new sound and atmosphere that puts NYC on its next level. And that is achieved by some key ingredients: incredible songwriting, production value, and brilliant vocal melodies. And Sasha brings all three to the table, plus so much more that any avid Pop listener can appreciate.

Sasha blends her own signature Pop sound with many other elements that include R&B and Dance, but in the end really delivers a level of versatility that is easily recognizable, yet still original in its own right. And that’s what gives her endless likability factors with a timeless style and presentation. She brings us something different that is captivating, multifaceted and is impossible to go unnoticed.

“Brooklyn” is already trending on all mainstream music retailers and has been extremely influential on social media since the song’s release date. It’s definitely a track that lets you know that Sasha Prendes is well on her way to reaching the top. And once you take a listen to “Brooklyn” yourself, you’ll understand exactly why.

Press Release: Airwaves Spectacular – “Out In The Distant Black” EP

Article by: Justyn Brodsky & Broken 8 Records

Back in 2017, we had the joy of hearing Airwaves Spectacular’s debut, self-titled record. It was an album that seemingly came out of nowhere, with the band having formed only a few months before its release. Packed with passion, enthusiasm, and will to create, the band had created a record of alt-pop and modern rock anthems that notched up comparisons to Muse, Evanescence, and the Human League, an impressive start to the young outfit.

A musical trio comprised of Cyrus Keefer, Kayla Rae, and Chris Tolentino, Airwaves Spectacular are now back with a brand new EP, bringing their 80’s influenced sound back into the spotlight with three original tracks and noticeable artistic growth. Titled ‘Out In The Distant Black’, the new EP is three neatly packaged tracks that carry on the spirit of their debut.

Led by opener “Standing Still”, a vibrant pop track that shines through glistening guitar work and an immutable energy, the new EP is clearly here to turn some heads. Second number and title track “Out In The Distant Black” is more atmospheric in nature, building from light tones and constant percussion that drive the song forward while letting the vocals shine in ethereal fashion.

Closing number “Rest Near Stone,” the lead single from the release and arguably the most infectious track, is the one to wait for. It’s an upbeat anthem that ties in the band’s love of pop and forward thinking nature, layering organic compositions with flicking digital flourishes to produce a sound that is quickly becoming their hallmark.

All told, the new EP is a real hidden treasure at the moment, and it’s a release that certainly belies the band’s short time together.

Press Release: Yann Sella – “Existence” EP

Article by: Justyn Brodsky

Blissful moods, subtle buildups and climactic energy might be a few ways to describe Yann Sella‘s upcoming self-produced debut EP Existence, on UK-based label Subdust Music. But the truth is, it’s a record you need to hear to believe.

The EP’s anchor single “Turning Circles (feat. Manchester Rain)” has already received praise and critical acclaim from press and the radio circuit. It has also garnered massive support from listeners worldwide upon its release via internet and continues to make its presence known.

Now with two more tracks to complete the circuit, Yann brings forth a record that is both atmospheric and anthemic. The thought-provoking and ambient “Twinkle” is a song that brings electronic music to a whole new realm with its next-level approach and innovative structure. It’s a track that really could be the soundtrack to your morning sunrise, or anticipation of walking through city lights. Either way, the moods this song possesses are unlike anything you’ll ever hear and really encompasses a movie soundtrack feeling.

With the title track “Existence” we get a similar familiarity as the other songs on the record, but shows a whole other side to the spectrum and really ties it all together beautifully with its multifaceted atmosphere and electronically supercharged emotion. As an instrumental record, all three tracks are most effective when played all the way through without stopping. Like a concept record that tells one story as it plays out through separate chapters. And this trilogy of tracks really delivers a brilliantly structured and dynamically produced EP that is a perfect fit for any avid Electronic/EDM listener.

Existence will be releasing exclusively through Beatport on September 28th and will be made available on all digital music retailers and streaming platforms on October 12th. Mark your calendars, you won’t regret picking up a copy of this record.

With great pacing and cinematography, Kim takes us through a cautionary tale of how the epidemic of bullying comes in several ways and effects each and every person differently, and really brings out the avenue of the song title; to stand tall and overcome the odds, and that everyone has a voice.

The acclaimed singer’s lyrical content and melody factors really pave the road for this song and really encompasses a feel-good vibe that is inescapably embedded into anyone that watches and listens to this song and video. You can’t help but feel this song when seeing the video along with the music, and the execution of the message is brilliantly mastered and is impossible to go unnoticed.

Almost all of us have encountered some form of bullying at some point in our lives. And this song ‘calls out to the haters behind the screen’ and is aimed at instilling the courage in all to stand tall and speak out against any form of bullying.
