Artist Review: Circle The City – “Home” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

With a dynamically Alt/Indie-Rock infused sound with a knack for subtle sweetness and multifaceted writing techniques, Canadian quartet Circle The City really puts a naturally boasted change to the game with their current buzzing single, “Home”.

Based out of Sarnia, Ontario and comprised of a powerhouse lineup featuring Riley Thompson (Vocals/Rhythm Guitar), Harold Collins (Guitar), Nathan Yeadon (Bass Guitar)), and Jesse Mootrey (Drums/Percussion), these four versatile musicians brilliantly delve into a chemistry that really shines through their flavorful, catchy signature sound and songwriting structures that touches on equal parts originality and familiarity; giving their audience a taste of something fresh yet still identifiable.

With a cleverly executed mix of sultry Jazz vocals, melodically thorough guitar compositions, funky jazz breakdowns and a pounding rhythm section that is tightly crafted, Circle The City is anything but the next ordinary run-of-the-mill band you’ve heard far too often. This female fronted group has a balance and composure that really sustains a foundation that’ll grow on you from the very first listen.

Their single “Home” is a perfect demonstration of this. The song has a Jazzy vibe that is seductive, engaging, and really visceral with an aura that showcases their style in a way that is not only effective, but very memorable as well. It’s the type of song you’ll keep coming back to time and time again, and find new ways of appreciating it. It’ll also entice you to also check out their discography of prior releases, as well as their future prospects. The band delivers up a sound that’ll capture your undivided attention, and stay with you.

And that’s another notable fact about “Home” – their staying power. The ability to stay with you even after the song is over. Similar to movies that are not only re-watchable, but also gets better every time. And that’s one of the defining factors of the power that this single gives off. Another key element for this track is the natural production value. There are no post-production theatrics or noisy plugins that take away from their naturally gifted sound, and really shines the spotlight on each band member’s ability. You get to hear true chemistry from the band as a whole as each measure comes together beautifully with a writing style that really resonates with a brilliant original take on the Alt/Indie and Rock influenced genres. Once you take a listen to “Home” yourself, you’ll see (and hear) exactly why Circle the City is an absolute standout of their caliber. The single is currently available on several digital music retailers and streaming platforms. You’ll be more than glad we sent you in their direction.

Artist Review: Rolf Schnyder – “Orange Punk” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

With a swift 80’s style of synth-infused song structures with today’s modern sensibility, we get an unwavering shot of adrenaline with Switzerland-based artist’s Rolf Schnyder‘s single “Orange Punk”.

This is no ordinary song, and will have you raising your eyebrows and tipping your glasses to its originality, energy and multifaceted signature style. Rolf serves up a song that is like a shockwave of EDM as if it took place back in the 80’s era, but with a modern energetic twist. It’s completely unexpected and really comes out swinging at the very first measure of the track. It hints at some Jazz-influenced fills and really captivates your attention; it’s definitely a song that will have you delving deeper into Rolf‘s discography and future releases.

The song structure is not complex, which is what makes it even more charming. The instrumental track doesn’t have one measure or structure that strays you from the song’s intended impact and really throws itself at you in a way that’ll keep you coming back. It’ll require more than one listen; your first initial reaction will be “wow, what did I just listen to?!” And in a great way. This is the type of song you’ll be passing along to friends.

Rolf is a very renowned musician in his home country and is really on the rise as he continues to pump out new releases. “Orange Punk” in particular is a versatile and visceral listening experience that will really entice you to research more into what Rolf has to offer. His style has many angles and never fails to keep you focused and interested in seeing (and hearing) what he has in store next. “Orange Punk” is currently available on Spotify, iTunes, and other digital music platforms and music streaming platforms. We can’t recommend this song highly enough, and once you take a listen yourself, you’ll be recommending it too.

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: No-EL Dacosta – “The Soul Man From The Endz” LP

FrReview by: Justyn W. Brodsky & Bethany A. Stephenson

A truly modern triumph, and a realm of R&B the way it was meant to be is what No-EL Dacosta‘s The Soul Man From The Endz stands up to be, and represents as a whole. An album of tunes that are soulful, versatile, multifaceted, and a realistic caressing of the heart of real R&B music.

But Dacosta‘s album is a lot more than that. This collection of uplifting anthems have additives of Blues, Bossa Nova, Jazz, Jams, Hip Hop and everything in between. From swinging mid-ranged vocal tracks to clear and concise production value, these songs share all kinds of moods. There are blissful feature artists that bring in soothing vocal textures, beautifully crafted guitar and piano compositions. Best of all, each song breathes its own life into each song. You never hear the same thing twice and every track has a new set of features that conjures these songs more into anthems, rather than just songs on an album.

No-EL‘s album is a masterpiece of R&B in its own right, and rightly so. His vocal approach is perfect for the genre and has really put a modern edge to every song on this album. You’ll absolutely love it, and puts R&B into a new modern world that gives it a whole new sound for generations to come.

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.
