Artist Review: Ariz – “Testify (Girl You’re Good)” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Two talented voices, one explosive song. We get a captivating and danceable listening experience with young Nigerian duo Ariz‘s newest single “Testify (Girl You’re Good).”

Some of the best music that graces our platform comes from younger up and coming artists that are just coming out the gate to get their message out to the world. And Ariz does exactly that with this premier single.

Their raspy and charismatic vocal approach is super melodic and really grabs your attention. Their shared, dueling verses are well placed, well paced and really solidified their signature sound between both singers. Then the chorus comes in with a higher ranged ambience and vocal projection that has amazingly catchy vocal harmonies. And that’s the peak of the song that really displays their their talent right out in the open, and it’s an unwavering joy to behold to hear this level of talent at such a young age.

The production quality of this track is very detailed and reinforces a lot of yesterday’s dance sensibilities with today’s modern additives. It’s a very vibrant feel-good listening experience any avid Dance/Pop fan can appreciate with a very versatile approach coming from a duo that clearly knows how to collaborate successfully.

And this is what makes “Testify” all the more better. It has an original yet familiar feel that is fun, atmospheric and energetic approach all wrapped up into one multifaceted collaborative effort. And it doesn’t disappoint in the least.

Ariz is definitely on a very promising path with this single, and really shows their prospective direction and depth as a dynamic duo. You’ll be very glad you gave this song a listen.

Artist Review: Zama Rripa – “American Soul” LP

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

With great spirit, good nature, and a whole hearted eclectic sound driving his passion for music forward, Zama Rripa proves with his newest album American Soul that his message is just as powerful as his music.

Zama, emerging from the elite Miami music scene, has been garnering an insatiable street buzz with his indie-folk-americana rock style and free spirited lyrics that are uplifting and warm; yet take a stand at the same time in a positive and protesting way. He has performed all over the world in various bands as well as a solo artist, and his solo effort in American Soul really touches on his experiences, views and adventures into finding one’s journey and purpose.

Each anchor single off this album is very anthemic and has a very vibrant and almost tropical feel at times. With some reggae influences in the mix with a modern folk and americana signature, each track is very eclectic in its structure and timeless in its message.

With smooth acoustic textures and clean guitar layers that blend in with a very rhythmic flow, Zama‘s songwriting structures are very fresh, bold and deliver an authentic feel that is genuine and heartfelt. You can feel the passion that has been put into these tracks, and it really authenticates Zama‘s artistic merit every time each song plays out. There’s no specific formula – he writes and plays what he loves, and that’s what makes a songwriter truly influential.

If there’s one thing I can say about American Soul, it’s that Zama aims to inspire to be inspired. And to truly take in his music for what it really is – inspiring. He’s one of those artists that truly wants to make the world a better place through his music. And American Soul encompasses that with every track.

American Soul officially releases on October 26th and will be available on all digital music retailers and streaming platforms.

Career Highlights: Young Cuban Opera Singer Dian Rene Crosses Over Into The US Latin Urban Genre

Article by: Justyn Brodsky

When it comes to being an artist, many millennial sacrifices are made. And if there’s one artist that has truly made the sacrifices and life-changes one has to make to reach a remarkable feat in the world of music, it’s young on-the-rise Opera singer Dian Rene. Someone that has moved mountains in his life to get to where he currently is.

Rene grew up in the Cuban city of Holguín and began singing at a very young age. He studied opera at The University of Arts of Cuba’s Instituto Superior de Arts, where he received his bachelor’s degree in 2013. He studied opera because classical music was all that was offered at the university, but Rene quickly found his passion for it. He also sang popular music to make a living.

Rene became a well-known singer in Holguín, performing concerts as a tenor in a company. He was a singer full time, but he said that with Cuba’s economy, there wasn’t many opportunities for opera, and it also didn’t help

that opera isn’t as popular in Cuba as it is in the U.S.

That’s when Rene and his sister decided to come to the states and make his dreams of being a full time singer in the U.S. market a reality. But it was no easy task. After being subject to hazardous jungle environments, detainment in Mexico and literally singing his way to freedom to the guards that had him and his sister held in a prison area, the siblings made a safe cross over the US border into Texas, eventually settling in Harrisonburg.

After tackling the Opera genre since he began hitting the ground running in the music realm, as of October 19th Dian Rene made another crossover, this time into the Latin Urban genre, where he can showcase his vocal versatility and multifaceted musicianship more exclusively within his craft and passion for music. He released his first US single and is currently working on new material to solidify his signature sound and become a household name in the US market.

With endless possibilities ahead of him within his talent, vocal range, image and artistic merit, Rene is comfortably settled in the US and heading forward with his career in his designated market.

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

When it comes to production value with innovation and insatiable authenticity, Lavi Beats is a name to take note of.

Delving into a bit of his history, Lavi is not only specified to one role in music. He is a DJ, producer, singer and a songwriter. Alongside that he also plays the keyboard and drums. Hence, he has experimented a lot in this the music realm and is extremely multifaceted. Still, this music star like all of us has his own artist favorites from the field. The ones he would go on to credit being influences on the music he produces range from Sam Cook, Bob Marley, Tiesto, Afro Jack, Major Lazor and Stevie Wonder, among many others.

Lavi‘s sound is dynamic, climactic and extremely effective. With production credits ranging from Pitbull to renowned singer Belinda, Lavi has been hitting the ground running since his thrust into the industry.

His single “Young Night” serves up a very tasty demonstration of his skills behind the mixing board. With a mid-vocal range and seductive lyrics grasping at a very catchy melody, the upbeat flavor to this song really comes together with every element that is implemented.

Lavi‘s other track “Miami Life3” shows a very in-depth look into his writing style exclusively in the beats department. With a punchy approach, this song demonstrates a style that shows various components to how he pieces together a digital composition. It doesn’t outdo itself with every plugin or noise theatrics. He kicks this track booming, enticing, and overall effective in its approach.

Lavi is definitely one of those artists you don’t wanna sleep on. He has amassed incredible credentials, an unwavering internet presence, and a career that cruises to new heights with every release he puts out.

  • Album Review: Blaze – “Born To Blaze” LP

    Review by: Justyn Brodsky

    If you are looking for a highly spiritual and captivating record with a great story-telling method, then Triunion Music artist Blaze‘s Born To Blaze will not let you down.

    This Christian Hip Hop artist brings spirituality to a whole new level that really grasps at your heart and your mind. Blaze‘s album is versatile, multifaceted, and incredibly charismatic with his vocal deliveries and inspirational lyrical content that gets to the heart of real life situations. It’s extremely deep, passionate, and a joy to behold.

    The beats incorporate many different genre elements and make great use of instrumentation and plugins. Each track is ambient and really flows together with Blaze‘s messages perfectly, and also showcases a handful of feature artists that really add artistic merit to this record.

    One track that really stands out is the opener, “I Surrender (feat. Sarah McTiernan)”. With a soulful female-vocal hook cruising through this song, Blaze really hits the ground running with his spiritual lyrics and clever narrative. With elements of ambient Rock and Reggae influences that add many different moods to this track, you can’t help but fall head over heals with this record immediately. It’s an opening track that lets you know that you’ll be listening to every track on this album from start to finish.

    Each track on Born To Blaze not only provides us with Blaze‘s signature style, but offers up something new and effective in every measure. You won’t hear the same song twice, but you’ll know it’s coming from the same artist; and that’s a very hard feat to reach in today’s mainstream market.

    Blaze is a complete standout of his caliber and we at Artist Reach honestly can’t recommend him enough. If you’re in the mood for something fresh, powerful, well-crafted and highly spirited, then Born To Blaze is just for you.

    The album is available now on iTunes, Google Play, SoundCloud, and other digital retailers.
