Artist Review: Shannie Ross – “Lesson” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Continuing to insatiably thrive in the market with her undisputed looks and talent, southern songstress Shannie Ross knocks it out of the park with her newest single “Lesson.”

Houston has a new queen, skip the princess part. From a dynamic image and versatile vocal approach, Shannie shows us she is worthy of the crown in this latest banger.

Amassing an enormous industry buzz with the success of her most recent EP Rebirth, her new R&B-infused track explores different multi-genre avenues with her articulate vocal style, but it’s her voice itself that really carries the torch throughout this song. She can be sensually sweet and cleverly charismatic all at once, and never fails to implement these factors into all the right places.

The pacing of the song is well-driven and doesn’t drag out, Shannie makes very good melody choices in each measure and really brings out different angles to what she’s capable of, and she’s well aware of how to maintain the proper vocal control. With a sing-songy Hip Hop style mixed with elements of Pop, she really delves into a whole new and next-level realm for the R&B genre and adds incredible balance and composure to make her recognizable and identifiable in any part of the market; be it indie or mainstream.

And that’s the thing I like the most about Shannie Ross – the multifaceted presentation. Being able to take on different roles of the same image and making her ear and eye candy for anyone that appreciates a more-than-solid R&B and Hip Hop-oriented track. Her music can be an outfit for just about anywhere in the market whether it’s the radio circuit, a movie soundtrack or any atmosphere in need of a modern, soulful voice.

For anyone interested in true southern heat, Shannie Ross really fires it up with this new single, and I’m more than positive you’ll agree once you take a listen. Be sure to check into this artists’s back catalogue as well, including her music videos. You won’t be disappointed.

Artist Review: Horizonte Lied – “Wishing To Be There” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

A shockwave with the perfect blend of yesterday’s and today’s electronic music.

That is probably the most accurate description of Horizonte Lied and their newest single “Wishing To Be There.” An upbeat electronic song that drop kicks you with its pounding rhythm section and unwavering energy. Something that is recognizable but still holds ground with its articulated originality and multifaceted production value.

Structured with climactic measures and verses that provide the perfect buildups, this single carries enormous weight with the choice of vocal melodies. From perfected lower 5th harmonies and dynamic lyrical content, this song delivers excellent musicianship factors that are shared between the performance value and the overall production.

The music and vocals definitely compliment each other perfectly and keep the listener engaged while keeping a solid flow of energy at the forefront. And that’s one of the most noticeable components of the track – the energy. Combined with the song’s aura and atmosphere, the rhythmic energy (particularly the drums) doesn’t leave a stone unturned. It addresses each verse and measure with a cleverly executed wave of synthesizers and rotund low end to really give this song a true edge to its overall execution. It’s the perfect track to test those new Sony Xplodes sound system in your car, and an even better song to crank the vibe up 10 more notches at your very club.

If you’re a fan of electronic music from any era (including EDM) then Horizonte Lied will be thriving at the top of your favorites pretty quickly. “Wishing To Be There” is that rush of adrenaline you’ve been looking for.

Artist Review: Von Rodri – “Flower Days” EP

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

When it comes to enchanting acoustic textures and a Star-like quality voice that is versatile and eclectic, Von Rodri absolutely delivers anthemic sweetness with his EP and anchor single “Flower Days.”

It’s rare that we hear a solid acoustic track anymore. So Von is definitely a fresh breath of much needed air. Resonating a classic acoustic sound with modern day production value, “Flower Days” gives us a series of feel-good moods that we haven’t felt in quite some time.

Playing lightly textured guitar parts with a catchy progression, Von gives a more than worthy vocal performance in his tone and choice of melodies. The song is very crafty and really hovers among many musical eras that accompany great acoustic anthems, and if a solid acoustic track is in your wish list, then look no further. “Flower Days” will capture your spirit and captivate your soul.

The EP is currently available on SoundCloud and recently just became available on Spotify and Apple Music as of September 22nd. Once you get a grasp onto Von Rodri‘s blissful vocals and dynamic songwriting structures, you’ll be in anticipation of what’s to come with his future releases. You’ll be glad you gave this a listen.

Artist Review #2: The Keymakers – “Tell Me Something” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

We are back with another banger from elite artist duo The Keymakers with their sensually ambient new single “Tell Me Something” and it doesn’t disappoint.

We’ve had this dynamic duo on the platform before. And I clearly remember wondering to myself what future material these guys would have up their sleeves. Well, I’m stoked to say that what they have is nothing short of amazing, and that was nothing short of my expectations.

Their new feature single “Tell Me Something” follows up their predecessor beautifully and takes us on a journey of innovative production value and lyrical bliss. With fine tuned, subtle verses and vocal leads that are melodically ambient, we get a grasp of new school R&B with Pop components that formulates a tasty mixture.

There’s a swell buildup in between verses and really gives you that edge-of-your-seat feeling as the vocals carry the torch. The likability factors are essentially endless and can be admired in isolation, but is a really great track as a whole when every measure of the song is put together. And that’s the best way to describe this song: a beautifully executed feel-good track from beginning to end, and just keeps getting better as the track plays out.

This one is highly recommended and is very innovative in its overall style and vibe. It offers up something new while still maintaining elements of familiarity from inspirational artists we’ve all come to know and love. And when you take a listen to “Tell Me Something” yourself, you’ll definitely be adding The Keymakers to that list of artists.

Combining an integration of smooth rhymes, charismatic vocals and a multi-genre approach, we get an innovative blend of Hip Hop with elements of Soul and Alternative with Fadetheblackk‘s newest single “Visions (feat. B*Star).”

With great production value and a soul-infused beat carrying the torch, this song is anything but ordinary. It’s a multifaceted creation of something artistic, inventive and takes Hip Hop into a new modern realm.

With each verse breathing life in the form of a straight and subtle flow, you can hear FTB‘s natural talent loud and clear with his ability to articulate his lyrics in all the right places. His tone is catchy, his melody-driven chorus is anthemic, and his spirit in the track never wavers.

Fadetheblackk‘s current single is distributed by Warner Music Indie platform Level and he has always been behind the scenes creating and working with many artists in today’s music industry since 2011. So with years under his belt, it’s not a huge surprise that this song is as versatile as it is, but it surely is a treat.

If you’re looking for something outside of your everyday Hip Hop single that drops from every corner of the street, then “Visions” is the track for you. It’s a song that indicates that FTB is not riding any kind of bandwagon – he’s bringing his very own creation to life; something that you don’t hear every day and a taste of something fresh, yet still identifiable at the same time.

The single dropped on July 13th and is currently available on all digital music retailers and streaming platforms. You’ll be glad we sent you there.
