With a modernization and stylization that delivers vibe, energy, and a multifaceted chemistry among three brilliant musicians, Rock-tronic power trio TIGER DRIVE hits it out of the park with a cinematic music video for their single “Legend”.

The title advertises this song perfectly. With subtle verses that build up to an electrically explosive chorus, this song does no wrong.

The catchiness of this track is unwavering – each member feeds off the song’s anticipating structures and really kicks things into high gear when the chorus comes around. When watching the video, each member really shows their true artistic merit in its full package and brings you something that combines originality and familiarity with their dynamic sound.

Artist Review: IP Da Man – “In My Rarri” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

If you want an insanely charismatic beat to parallel a witty rhyming technique, then IP Da Man‘s newest banger “In My Rarri” is your draft pick.

Jumping into this track with IP‘s mid ranged vocal delivery and multi-layered transitioning definitely puts him at the forefront where his true core of talent can showcase itself most effectively. He definitely went into the studio prepared — his precision in each vocal take is very present throughout the tracking process.

IP also delivers up a sort of authentic blend of old school and modernized elements that combines a sound that has both originality and familiarity; putting a new spin on what we’ve come to know and love, so to speak. The production value on this track speaks for itself, but it’s the charismatic rhyming schemes that really sets IP apart from a lot of today’s more contemporary Hip Hop artists.

With “In My Rarri” carrying the weight for IP with the buzz that has been created with it, it definitely has you morbidly curious to see what tricks he has up his sleeves next. We’ll be one of the first ones to call first dibs.

Album Review: Sim Ross – “Mother’s Day Blues” LP

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

It’s rare nowadays that you run into one of those albums where you don’t have to skip over one track. This is exactly the case with the multifaceted and passion-driven “Mother’s Day Blues” album from Sim Ross.

Hailing from the elite Austin music scene in Texas, Sim Ross blends a dynamic signature sound that is comprised of roots-rock and Americana with edgier components and presented with limitless musicianship factors and production value. This is one of those clear and concise albums that you know you’ll love from the very first track.

One of Sim‘s notable singles, “Sweetness”, is a perfect example of how effective the likability factors from this album really is, and how it resonates with a great play on creating a multi-genre approach that brings out originality and familiarity. Taking some of the best components from his musical influences that range from Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, and The Black Crowes, Sim Ross‘s edgy vocal tones, innovative guitar progressions, and infectiously catchy hooks really brings every component to the forefront of showcasing Sim effectively, and properly. This is one of those songs that is more of an anthem – it doesn’t leave a stone unturned. The songwriting structure and overall presentation of this track delivers up one of the many gems that makes this album shine the way it does.

Taking a look at another angle of Ross, “Avalanche” brings us to a dark and witty aura that showcases the same signature that has been etched into the musical chemistry, but grasps a whole other part of you. With another powerful chorus and charismatic vocal delivery carrying the torch with authentic guitar work and all the right textures, we delve into another captivating track that brings versatility to this album that is indicative of precision and performance value.

This 14-song catalogue definitely gives a nod to an era when track sequence was an art form. It creates a narrative for the listener, and a perspective for the artist that you can identify with. “Mother’s Day Blues” is one of those albums you’ll keep coming back to time and time again, finding something new each time you play it from beginning to end. With an album this in-depth, creative, and beyond what you’ll anticipate, it definitely makes you eager to see and hear what Sim Ross puts out next. This is the type of artist you truly invest yourself into.

Artist Review: Nadel Paris – “Ooh La La La La” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Pop artists can be dime-a-dozen, but there is only one Nadel Paris.

Her acclaimed sophomore single “Ooh La La La La” starts out with her infectious chorus melody, and continues to flourish as the song’s high production value along with Nadel‘s very unique and versatile vocal range takes form and showcases her strengths in musicianship very effectively as the track plays out.

It’s definitely one of those choruses that reels you in from the first listen, and entices you to look deeper into this track, as well as Nadel Paris‘s catalogue of other music altogether.

Combining classic pop sensibilities from the older eras we’ve grown to know and love and integrated into today’s mainstream approach is what really makes this song the gem it really is. She brings out a strong showcase of musicianship, aura, relentless vocal talent, and a signature sound and stylization that separates her from your average run-of-the-mill artist.

The song hit the ground running in the internet radio circuit, and she continues to garner new fans and listeners with every set of ears that discovers this song, and her music catalogue altogether. The song peaked at #31 on the Billboard Dance Club Songs chart, and she even did a formal interview about her on-the-rise success with her insatiable drive and multifaceted talent and impact on the EDM/Pop scene in a very short time – reaching an amazing feat most artists have a hard time getting to, even with decades under their belt. But Paris came out swinging with “Ooh La La La La” and has no intention of slowing her momentum down anytime soon.

Once you take a listen to this infectiously-catchy track, you’ll be singing it in your head (or out loud) relentlessly. It’s impossible not to absolutely love this song. Once you listen yourself, you’ll understand why.

Artist Review: NuJ4X – “Dab (On Dem Haterz)” Music Video/Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky & Michael Annotti

There is a lot of hype coming from the noise tank of EDM and its varieties. But when it comes to Nashville’s NuJ4X, we have a take on the genre with a much more multifaceted angle.

Combining a pounding rhythm and Hip Hop lyrical components, we have an explosive audio and visual package with NuJ4X‘s versatile single “Dab (On Dem Haterz). A song that is equally powerful to watch just as much as it is to listen.

Combining the concept of a lyric video and a found-footage spectrum with some innovative video editing, we have a track and music video that share perfect parallels. From dynamic vocal structures to infectiously catchy hooks, we have a chemistry of EDM that utilizes mainstream-worthy elements, and new ones that add a whole new flavor to it. It’s the type of video that needs to be seen to be believed.

Best of all, there are no cheat methods at play here. We don’t hear relentless auto-tune or overuse of plugins; we have a well-crafted track with outstanding execution and production value that any fan of the genre can appreciate. NuJ4X charisma and personality antics are also great additives. One thing most noticeable is the simplicity of the overall aura – we hear real music delivered up by a DJ with insatiable skills behind the turntables.

Once you grasp onto the track’s energy and stylization along with the overall content that “Dab (On Dem Haterz)” offers, you’ll be more than glad we told you about NuJ4X. Ultra Fest…we’re talking to you.
