Artist Review: Yann Sella – “Turning Circles” feat. Manchester Rain

Article by: Justyn Brodsky

A track that is subtle and electronically ambient, French producer, Yann Sella, experiments with beautiful soundscapes and sonic textures in his single “Turning Circles (feat. Manchester Rain)”.

Currently signed with UK label Subdust Music, Yann Sella shows a lot of promise with this song, which is his debut single from his forthcoming EP Existence. His ability to implement different moods and sounds into one explosive emotional package is made very evident throughout each measure of this song, and the likable musicianship factors stand out effectively.

From the very beginning, the ambience speaks very loudly and the buildup and ascending measures are very soothing yet anticipating. Yann‘s use of software and plugins are very intricate but are still kept simple in all the right places, and the vocal swells are blended passionately with great melodies to bring forth more elements of what is offered throughout the artistic merit of the track.

This song is definitely one that can take your mind to a place you haven’t been, or a place you’ve been yearning for. It’s not your average exercise in EDM or Electronic Music, “Turning Circles” stays within a realm of its own and really showcases Yann‘s insatiable talent and passion for music.

From the multifaceted writing and programming to the elite production value, “Turning Circles” sets a great foundation for what’s to come for the DJ & Producer, and will definitely entice you to check out the rest of his EP when it releases.

Artist Review: Rocstarsmokey – “Take Off” feat. MH The Goat (Official Music Video)

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Coming straight outta Dallas, things get bigger in Texas with a new cinematic video and banging track from Rocstarsmokey and MH The Goat.

If you’re looking for a good time with nice cars, girls and a beautiful southern skyline, then the video for “Take Off” will suit your needs. Both Rocstarsmokey and MH The Goat, both Texas based rising rappers, bring diligently crafted bars and verses to this song and accompany it with a brilliantly paced video that shows us how Texas gets down during sundown.

With verses being shared by both rappers, we get a smooth demonstration of each artist with their witty rhyming schemes and clever vocal techniques. They both convey a laid back image that is more on the classy and comfortable side, and don’t overdose us with flashy-ness.

The beat in this song combines a versatile mix between an old school vibe combined with today’s mainstream production value, paying homage to both eras and really delivering a song that is not only likable, but sustainable as well; it’s definitely a track (and video) you can keep coming back to, and finding something new to appreciate every time.

Rocstarsmokey and MH The Goat collectively make “Take Off” a gem of a track, and we’re eager to see what these guys have up their sleeves next.

Artist Review: Emma Michelle – “Click Delete” (featuring Dani Cohn)

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

With a knack for charisma, aspirations and musical persona, we have a new queen of catchy in Emma Michelle‘s single “Click Delete”.

Accompanied by a colorful official music video alongside feature artist Dani Cohn, the girls pair up for a fresh tag-teaming song with witty punchlines and contagiously catchy hooks. Being at such a young age, this song and video has catapulted Emma‘s career into overdrive, amassing over 200,000 YouTube views in the first week of its release. With a fairly mixed reaction among the general public, we at Artist Reach fully endorse this track and have several reasons as to why.

This young artist brings forth an image that is stylish and completely likable. She acts like a young girl, well, because she is. But sings even better; she has one of those voices that delivers a versatile yet subtle sensibility that shares equal parts in energy and tenderness, and knows how to really showcase her colorful image.

Sharing verses and vocal duties throughout the track and video between the singing and cinematic components with Dani Cohn also gives us a glance into Emma‘s ability to collaborate and share the spotlight. With both girls meshing well throughout the video and song equally, their natural talent is very evident throughout every measure. From singing to rapping, harmonizing and vocal transitioning, “Click Delete” delves us into Emma‘s (and Dani’s) world of fun, friendship, musicianship, and ability to entertain a mainstream following in the better part of today’s more modernized Pop genre.

The biggest recommendation we can give is to listen to this track for yourself, and definitely watch the video. Emma Michelle is one of those younger artists that is fast on-the-rise, and worth every minute of your time.

  • Artist Review: Terry McMahon Project – “Believe” Single

    Review by: Justyn BrodskyBuffalo, NY’s Terry McMahon Project has a sound that brews some of yesterday and today’s artists we’ve all come to know and love, but still puts his own versatile touch to a signature sound the band can call their own.

    The band’s leading man, Terry McMahon, has a signature sound reminiscent of artist influences ranging from Staind, Seether, Breaking Benjamin and Pearl Jam. Their modern rock sound is bold, pure, and powerful; driven by powerful, deep and emotional lyrics that really brings the listener to identify with their music from their own personal experiences.

    The band’s anchor single “Believe” portrays a perfect example of this. The song’s dark, subtle and rock-infused combination of acoustic textures, edgy guitar riffs, and punchy rhythm section layers the music with a mesmerizing tone and puts their musicianship factors into the forefront that really brings a solidification to their perfectly blended chemistry. It’s a well-executed, multifaceted track that showcase’s Terry‘s vocals most effectively, and is evident throughout the song.

    The implementation of the 90s and early 2000s era with today’s modern rock sensibilities makes Terry McMahon Project a standout of their caliber, and a refreshment of musical years many rock listeners miss dearly. Terry and his band gives you a refreshing reminder that brilliantly written music still exists, and that the era of music we all still yearn for is still out there if you look in the right places. You’ll be more than happy that you discovered Terry McMahon.

    Emerging from the landscapes of Uzbekistan, rising record producer and songwriter IZZAT (Izzat Halikov) has recently released his exciting new single “Another Life feat. BRBN”.

    The song features vocals by renowned American singer BRBN, who really breathes life into this song with soaring melodies and an aura of ambience.

    IZZAT‘s song, accompanied by a cinematic music video, offers up a spectrum of EDM that showcases a melodic balance between key signatures, chord progressions, and a subtle buildup that makes his song a standout of its kind. The elite producer, with this track in particular, focuses on the songwriting structures and vocal composition; two components that makes this song the gem that it really is.

    The simplicity is perhaps what makes “Another Life” a very effective song that leaves the door open for strong vocal execution, and feature artist BRBN solidifies this perfectly. The verses have a very glistening touch to the vocal melodies and buildup to a very defined chorus that sticks with you. The production value boasts a very vibrant presence, and is brought together beautifully with a feature artist that both musically and visually adds to the depth and moods this song gives off.

    IZZAT also composed and produced this track single-handedly, and was recorded at Paramount Recording in Hollywood. Moreover, this song was published by Ervest Music and it is available for listening and downloading on digital platforms including Spotify, iTunes and more.

    This is just one of those songs you have to hear and see to believe. It has those captivating factors that puts EDM into a whole different realm.

  • Artist Review: Poetic RockStar – “Gemini Dancer” Single

    Review by: Justyn Brodsky

    Soul. Poetry. And a rising star gives DMV-area artist Poetic RockStar the persona and identity that has been pivotal to his career in music.

    While mastering his own craft in the writing and poetry worlds, he also utilizes his skills to encourage and inspire others to tap into their respective passions. However, it’s his own passion of writing that inspired PoeticRockStar into forming his own signature sound and genre called Neotry – a charismatic and stylistic combination of Jazz, Neo-Soul, R&B, Hip Hop, and Poetry; stirred with a modernized twist that brings out his renowned play on words, and straightforward bars-approach that sets him aside from your run-of-the-mill artist or rapper.

    His song “Gemini Dancer” is a great introduction into PR‘s world, and really showcases every angle of his artistic merit in all its glory. With a simple and effective guitar progression driving this song forward, PR delivers a soul-infused hook with a conceptual flow and versatile approach to the everyday life of being single and ready to mingle.

    Incorporating his signature Neotry sound and style into every story-telling verse, “Gemini Dancer” is a witty and brilliantly crafted track that has powerful performance value and originality. While touching on a very valid and all-too-often concept, he executes it perfectly with a very effective way of delivering a flow of words that you can easily resonate with, and enjoy in a whole different way.

    He keeps this song upbeat, encourages crowd participation, and strongly boasts a genuinely positive vibe during every measure of this song. It has endless likability factors and a catchiness that is hard to achieve in this era of music.

    You’re likely to recognize every facet of each genre implemented into this song, but it’s never been done quite like this. Poetic RockStar has set new boundaries for other artists of his caliber, and is gonna help lead the way with newer and fresher forms of artistic expression. Do yourself a favor and give yourself the Neotry experience that we got; you’ll be glad we recommended it.
