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.

Press Release: Yann Sella – “Existence” EP

Article by: Justyn Brodsky

Blissful moods, subtle buildups and climactic energy might be a few ways to describe Yann Sella‘s upcoming self-produced debut EP Existence, on UK-based label Subdust Music. But the truth is, it’s a record you need to hear to believe.

The EP’s anchor single “Turning Circles (feat. Manchester Rain)” has already received praise and critical acclaim from press and the radio circuit. It has also garnered massive support from listeners worldwide upon its release via internet and continues to make its presence known.

Now with two more tracks to complete the circuit, Yann brings forth a record that is both atmospheric and anthemic. The thought-provoking and ambient “Twinkle” is a song that brings electronic music to a whole new realm with its next-level approach and innovative structure. It’s a track that really could be the soundtrack to your morning sunrise, or anticipation of walking through city lights. Either way, the moods this song possesses are unlike anything you’ll ever hear and really encompasses a movie soundtrack feeling.

With the title track “Existence” we get a similar familiarity as the other songs on the record, but shows a whole other side to the spectrum and really ties it all together beautifully with its multifaceted atmosphere and electronically supercharged emotion. As an instrumental record, all three tracks are most effective when played all the way through without stopping. Like a concept record that tells one story as it plays out through separate chapters. And this trilogy of tracks really delivers a brilliantly structured and dynamically produced EP that is a perfect fit for any avid Electronic/EDM listener.

Existence will be releasing exclusively through Beatport on September 28th and will be made available on all digital music retailers and streaming platforms on October 12th. Mark your calendars, you won’t regret picking up a copy of this record.

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.

The type of artists that really capture your attention with their artistic merit and brilliant execution of musicianship are very, very few and far between. Ignacio Peña is one of those rare gems.

This Puerto Rican rocker is no stranger to the industry at all though, and is completely multifaceted from writing, recording, performing, producing, directing, media creation and more. After graduating from Berklee College of Music in Boston, Peña rose to fame in the Latin market with the release of his debut album “El Mundo al Revés” in 2000 and the subsequent tour which saw him perform festivals in Argentina, Venezuela, Panama and the United States. Peña‘s albums have garnered critical acclaim and are considered by many to be some of the best rock music to come out in Spanish.

From 2015 through 2017, Peña has been nominated for five NATAS Suncoast Chapter Emmy Awards, winning two for the WIPR-TV Short Subject documentaries “Por Qué Conmemoramos” (Why We Commemorate) and “Soy De Una Raza Pura” (I Am From A Pure Race) respectively.

Now fully loaded with his next collection of rock anthems, his newest album creation Songs For The Fall Of An Empire is one that delivers a concept about the history of debt, and really delves deep into telling a story effectively. With two singles accompanied by music videos for each, the visual aspect adds unwavering power, depth and anticipation as these songs truly keep you at the edge of your seat from start to finish.

The first single/music video for “The Same Replies” is an explosive introduction to what this album is about, as well as how the music resonates with it. With an eye-catching intro that locks you into pure anticipation, this move-trailer-like intro to the song is masterful, mind bending and astonishing all on its own as the perfect powerful entrance into a song. With ambient guitar leads, melodic chord projections and soaring harmony-driven vocals, this track hits you in ways you’d never think possible.

Shifting from Peña and his band members to the song’s visual concept is what makes this video one of the highest-energy experiences you could ask for. Every verse has incredible pacing with thought-provoking, intelligent lyrics with a dynamic rhythm section driving the song forward and smashing its way into a chorus that is melodic, catchy and suitable to any rock listener that appreciates an unforgettable chorus. The dark elements of the song really carries the weight of the song’s concept as well, and the production value couldn’t be better. This is a song and video that will stay with you even after it’s over. It’s one you have to see to believe.

Bridging over to the second single/video on the album, we get a thrust of heavy ambience with the song “Sound The Alarm” which carries over from the previous track as continuity of the same concept the album has been centralizing. From strong yet subtle verses that continue to tell a very political and supercharged story that gets the listener to pay extra close attention, we get one of the biggest buildups in anticipation before this song’s extremely in-your-face and most highlighted chorus yet.

From ascension to attention, the energy really flies high and is definitely one of the best written rock choruses of this caliber you could come by. With heavy-gain guitars and rhythmic riffs that drive with a force along with a pounding rhythm section, this climactic track is definitely gonna be one of your favorites of the album, and really puts the defining factors of the song right into the forefront where it’s most effective as a whole.

“Sound The Alarm” releases on September 17th, and is definitely gonna set the bar high for concept rock albums altogether, as well as videos.
