    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.

    Artist Review: IZZAT – “Another Life” Feat. BRBN

    Review by: Justyn Brodsky

    Another Life feat. BRBN” was released March 5th and is currently available on Spotify, iTunes and other digital music retailers.

    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: The Mountain King – “Hitting Stellar Pipes”

    Review by: Justyn Brodsky

    A vast array of human emotions in musical form, The Mountain King brings their experimental realm to the surface with their powerful concept record “Hitting Stellar Pipes”.

    It’s rare that you find a song/track of continuity that clocks in at 34:05, but once you step outside the box, you find an effectively dark and versatile composition that puts every emotion right into the forefront.

    The music evolves as the track plays out, and is perhaps a dive into the conscious mind. It’s a tale of moods, melody, and a musical storyline that never wavers from its dark presence. With riffy and chugging distorted guitars and a punchy rhythm section, The Mountain King holds nothing back with coming at you from all angles of artistic expression. From glistening vocal melodies and heavily grungy elements, “Hitting Stellar Pipes” is a stellar exercise of human emotion in musical form.

    The Mountain King is a very conceptual approach to many genre elements. The group of multifaceted musicians tell stories with their use of musicianship factors and instrumentation that makes their artistic merit stand out from anything else of their caliber.

    If you wanna lay back, close your eyes, and experience music in a very direct way that hits human thoughts and emotions, “Hitting Stellar Pipes” hits home brilliantly.

    Artist Review: Phil Specs: “One Last Kiss” Single

    Review by: Justyn Brodsky

    Strong, boastful, and compellingly anthemic, European Artist/Producer Phil Specs hits home with his powerfully dark single, “One Last Kiss”.

    The baritone singer brings a solid narrative to the conceptual realm of loving and leaving with this song, and really tells the story effectively. With a 90s edge in production value, this brilliantly-crafted song is very crisp, ambient, subtle and climactic. His voice is definitely versatile, but it artistically brings his multifaceted persona right to the center stage.

    One thing came to mind when I first started listening to this track: great songwriting. It has that simplicity that never lacks catchiness, and a production style that isn’t convoluted with diversionary post-production sequences to distract you from anything the artist may lack. You can easily hear Specs‘ gifted talent right from the start.

    If I had to put this song alongside something or someone that shows resemblance to this same kind of anthem-like quality, I would have to say Natalie Merchant’s “Carnival” is exactly what comes to mind; which is an incredible feat for an indie artist in today’s world of overproduced music.

    You really gotta hand it to Phil Specs for this track, he really conjured up quite the treat with “One Last Kiss”, and it’ll be ringing and singing in your head long after the song is over.

    Album Review: Austin Colon – “The Path Ahead” LP

    Article by: Justyn Brodsky

    A lot of artists nowadays tend to put their music out impulsively or recklessly. Usually because of ulterior motives, lack of ambition, or just trying to make a quick buck.

    But then there are true artists that enter the studio bound and determined to compose, create, and produce something that is captivating, intelligently crafted, and magically multifaceted. Austin Colon‘s LP The Path Ahead is one of those rare cases.

    It’s true, this is a rare gem in this era of fame-hunger and impulsivity. A diamond in the rough, but shines brighter than anything you’ve seen or heard in a long time. The Path Ahead isn’t just an album you hear, it’s an album you feel.

    With brilliantly produced tracks that offer up some very dynamic twists and turns, this acoustic-infused Alt/Rock record with a folky feel-good vibe has a vast array of different styles and versatile elements that’ll keep you hooked on every song. Austin‘s range is very fine-tuned and crisp with his vocal delivery, and makes very good use of both lyrical content and the melodies that bring him to the forefront.

    Austin definitely had one priority straight — catchy choruses. Each track has a chorus that really uplifts the verses and keeps the flow of every track very effective. With very subtle and ambient piano tracks adding to the overall texture and progression of each song, Austin‘s musicianship factors are showcased very powerfully throughout this entire album, and really gets you to feel the vibe and aura that The Path Ahead brings to the atmosphere.

    With a Bob Dylan-like influential vocal execution, we get a great glimpse into Austin‘s authenticity and natural-born talent that emulates from each track. Another key element about this album as a whole is transition; each song flows to the next in a way that reminds you of reading chapters from a book. It tells a story from many angles, hear a very distinctive narrative, but also get a taste of something different in every chapter. In a way, The Path Ahead is more than just an album, it’s a musical masterpiece of literature.

    Just like Pearl Jam’s Ten, Incubus’s S.C.I.E.N.C.E., Pink Floyd’s Dark Side Of The Moon, and Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Californication, Austin Colon‘s The Path Ahead is an album where you never skip over one track, and you can always come back to it and fall in love with these songs all over again. They never get old, and never lose its impact.

    If you just discovered The Path Ahead from this article, you’ll be very happy that you did. You can thank us later.
