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: Jonah Melvon – “RainWater Project” LP

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

Some music knows exactly how to touch the soul. With ambient vocal melodies, passionate rhythms and multifaceted male/female hooks, Jonah Melvon delivers up an innovative and soulful R&B album of anthems with that classic sound with brilliant textures of Jazz, Hip Hop and everything in between with every track on his newest LP RainWater Project.

Delving into a spectrum of a glistening R&B signature sound that perfectly resonates from the classics we’ve all come to know and love combined with today’s modern sensibility, RainWater Project is a triumphant album of tracks that really offer up an artist’s true passion in both performance value, as well as the strong messages in the content. This record awakens the entrepreneur spirit within all of us with his song “1099 (Mom And Pops)” from the album. A piano-infused, bluesy laid back tune that really nurtures the Soul from both Jonah‘s vocals, as well as the female feature artist. The song’s bossa-nova and rhythmic tempo really carries the mood of the track with each verse standing its own ground with the narratives and melodies paralleling each other perfectly. Then landing us into a chorus that’ll have you singing this one in your head well after it’s over.

The album also plants the spotlight on areas like gentrification, and an inhuman presidency crafted from his anthemic track “What’s Good for You“. A song that is powerful in its delivery and versatile in its overall edge. This track, with just as much swagger, puts another modern bluesy touch on this finely tuned single that brings out a brilliant execution from all angles. The message is powerful and the Hip Hop-additive makes this track very effective and gives it the perfect touches. It’s a song that really explores the true core of Jonah‘s talent and vocal approach. From songwriting technique to the song’s nostalgic pacing, this song will definitely win you over and will have you exploring the rest of this album more closely.

The biggest standout about RainWater Project is the authenticity and originality. A dynamic blend of tracks that mix the best of yesterday’s R&B approach and today’s innovative production value in all the right places. That, along with the multi-genre additives and several tasty flavors from each track will make this album one of your favorite Soul/R&B records you’ve heard this year so far. It’s an album with staying power, the power to stay with you well after it’s over. It’s also the type of record that will have you diving further into Jonah Melvon‘s catalogue as well as future prospects. RainWater Project is gonna give him a very promising year, and if this review is what lead you to his discovery, you’ll be thanking us later.

Artist Review: Cab – “Chosen” LP

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

Rappers can be around every corner of your hood, but there is only one Cab.

Combining versatility, loud bangers and subtle beats, Cab‘s album Chosen has a plethora of likability factors and multifaceted approaches to his songs; and they don’t disappoint.

Chosen starts off strong with beats that are of a whole different realm that is ahead of its time. His music resonates with a style that touches on originality and familiarity, giving his audience a taste of something fresh, yet still identifiable, but not too recognizable. He’s an artist in his own right and really projects a powerfully crafted vocal approach in the first few tracks.

He does, however, simmer down with tracks like “Thinking About You”, a song where his emotions come into play and really shows different angles to Cab‘s caliber, and it’s a refreshing and tasteful side to his album.

Chosen is an album you really need to pick up, or perhaps add to your Spotify list. It’s an album that is strong, subtle, projected, and diligently crafted from the heart.

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: Barcenilla – “Timeless” Single

Article by: Justyn W. Brodsky

When it comes to being a vocalist, you can be trained since birth, all day, every day, from dawn to dusk. And you most certainly will achieve some results. But then (not to sound like Simon Cowell here or anything), you just have it. And what exactly is it? Exactly. You just answered it in your own mind. And when it comes to truly having it; be it a beautiful voice, an ear for detail, head-turning looks, a craft for incredible melody choices and songwriting techniques and everything in between, Philippines-based Pop/R&B artist, Barcenilla, goes above and beyond the standard of today’s average, or even eyebrow-raising, trifecta.

With a remarkably organic and word-of-mouth fan base that has amassed the rising artist over 90,000 Facebook fans, 10,000 Twitter followers and over 26,000 Instagram followers, it’s no surprise that Barcenilla‘s signature sound has made an insatiable impact with listeners all over the world; hankering for that next vital voice and fresh image that truly captivates them beyond the realm of something run-of-the-mill or passive. This is where Barcenilla truly stands out – he is that next musical fix you’ve been looking for, and you have to hear him to believe it.

His most recent gem “Timeless”, which officially released December 1st, is just like the title suggests. It’s a timeless song that has not only the perfect production value to showcase Barcenilla‘s artist merit, but also shows several angles of what his vocal range is capable of, all topped off with astonishing melody placements and dynamics of delivering his strengths as a vocalist in all the right places.

Reminiscent of a vocal approach that could draw comparisons to iconic heavyweights like Prince, George Michael, and even subtle touches of today’s musical heartthrobs like Bruno Mars, Barcenilla has a tone and range that is natural, visceral, and resonates with a style that shares equal parts originality and familiarity; giving his audience a taste of something fresh yet still familiar. Which is an impressive feat in today’s world of music where almost everything has been done in some form or fashion.

But with Barcenilla, things take a natural and formulated turn in music, and “Timeless” is the perfect way to showcase his abilities both as an artist and stage persona. It’s about execution for him, and not what you sing, but how you sing it. The type of artist that could hear a poorly put-together song from another singer, erase all vocal tracks, and turn something that was essentially a flop into an absolute diamond. It’s all about the execution and Barcenilla strongly utilizes this component in his songs; and we hear that throughout every bar and measure in “Timeless”.

On top of hearing a brilliant Single with pop sensibilities. “Timeless” also delves into tastefully blended Hip Hop and R&B additives as well, giving it the perfect edge to almost any music listener that can appreciate the better side of today’s mainstream approach. It’s a song that doesn’t leave a stone unturned and really brings out the best of Barcenilla. From the looks of it, this artist is going places in 2019. So you’ll definitely wanna check out this single which is currently available on iTunes, Spotify among many others, and keep a close eye on his endeavors. You’ll be glad you did.
