Artist Review: Lavi Beats

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

When it comes to production value with innovation and insatiable authenticity, Lavi Beats is a name to take note of.

Delving into a bit of his history, Lavi is not only specified to one role in music. He is a DJ, producer, singer and a songwriter. Alongside that he also plays the keyboard and drums. Hence, he has experimented a lot in this the music realm and is extremely multifaceted. Still, this music star like all of us has his own artist favorites from the field. The ones he would go on to credit being influences on the music he produces range from Sam Cook, Bob Marley, Tiesto, Afro Jack, Major Lazor and Stevie Wonder, among many others.

Lavi‘s sound is dynamic, climactic and extremely effective. With production credits ranging from Pitbull to renowned singer Belinda, Lavi has been hitting the ground running since his thrust into the industry.

His single “Young Night” serves up a very tasty demonstration of his skills behind the mixing board. With a mid-vocal range and seductive lyrics grasping at a very catchy melody, the upbeat flavor to this song really comes together with every element that is implemented.

Lavi‘s other track “Miami Life3” shows a very in-depth look into his writing style exclusively in the beats department. With a punchy approach, this song demonstrates a style that shows various components to how he pieces together a digital composition. It doesn’t outdo itself with every plugin or noise theatrics. He kicks this track booming, enticing, and overall effective in its approach.

Lavi is definitely one of those artists you don’t wanna sleep on. He has amassed incredible credentials, an unwavering internet presence, and a career that cruises to new heights with every release he puts out.

    A track that is subtle and electronically ambient, French producer, Yann Sella, experiments with beautiful soundscapes and sonic textures in his single “Turning Circles (feat. Manchester Rain)”.

    Currently signed with UK label Subdust Music, Yann Sella shows a lot of promise with this song, which is his debut single from his forthcoming EP Existence. His ability to implement different moods and sounds into one explosive emotional package is made very evident throughout each measure of this song, and the likable musicianship factors stand out effectively.

    From the very beginning, the ambience speaks very loudly and the buildup and ascending measures are very soothing yet anticipating. Yann‘s use of software and plugins are very intricate but are still kept simple in all the right places, and the vocal swells are blended passionately with great melodies to bring forth more elements of what is offered throughout the artistic merit of the track.

    This song is definitely one that can take your mind to a place you haven’t been, or a place you’ve been yearning for.

    Whether it’s worldwide selling artists or underground bands, there’s always been a refreshing and eclectic vibe coming from the true north. Psychedelic Pop Rockers The Spanish Flies are another prime example of this.

    This Edmonton group’s most recent EP Ignorance Is Bliss portrays a crafty, energetic, and keyboard-infused rock sound that showcases elements from many different rock eras; going as far back to the 70s, all the way to today’s mainstream sensibilities.

    With 5 tracks of consistent rock and roll deliciousness, each song shows different angles to the musicianship qualities coming from The Spanish Flies. With a psychedelic feel reminiscent of the 90s, add in some rock and punk influence from bands like The Doors and The Strokes with today’s multifaceted production quality, and you have a tasty stew that resonates with “Ignorance Is Bliss”.

    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 #2: AMARU – “Champagne Attitude” LP

    Review by: Justyn Brodsky

    We are beyond stoked to bring back the king of dance, AMARU, back to the platform. If you caught our first review we did on his music, then you know you’re in for a treat.

    AMARU since his first review at Artist Reach hasn’t slowed his momentum down in the slightest. From show performances, an active YouTube channel, a vast array of music videos, magazine covers, commercials, and everything in between…we are proud to bring his new album Champagne Attitude to the forefront of the platform tonight.

    This self-produced/written & arranged album is a step up in the game from the widely-acclaimed Netherlands-based artist, and has several reasons as to why. First off, the production value is a through-the-roof kind of feel. From charismatic piano arrangements, synths, plugins, and every component contributed to this Dance album, there is no stone unturned on this record.

    The single “Low On The Dough” is a great example of this. Not only is the composition well crafted, but AMARU‘s melodies and lyrical structures is what truly makes this song a breath of fresh air.

    The verses are very versatile, charismatic, and mind-bending. It has some twists and turns you don’t see coming, and when everything comes together at the chorus, that’s when you really begin to grasp onto this track’s stroke-of-genius factors. It’s a high-energy dose of feel-good fun, and will definitely have you singing along before the song’s even over.

    While every song on this LP stands out, “Low On The Dough” is definitely the perfect track to make your entrance into AMARU‘s realm with, if you haven’t heard him yet. It’ll get you delving deeper into his discography, history, and artistic merit altogether. We can not recommend this album and artist highly enough. You can see (and hear) for yourself by checking out the links below to get your copy of Champagne Attitude right now. You’ll be glad we sent you there.

    Artist Review #2: The Keymakers – “Burning Me Up” Single

    Article by: Justyn Brodsky

    We are proud to bring back dynamic duo The Keymakers with a fiery hot new single, “Burning Me Up”.

    If you caught our first review of these two incredible voices, then you know how much we love these guys. And we are absolutely blown away with this new single. Once again we have an R&B and electronically infused song with two singers that showcase endless likability factors.

    This is definitely a song for everyone, but especially for the ladies. With Usher-influenced vocals and their own versatile components that touch on originality and familiarity, “Burning Me Up” is an explosion of R&B heat with sex appeal, amazing talent, multifaceted vocal ranges, and a mainstream-worthy catchy chorus that’ll keep you singing along.

    With two beautifully clean-vocal artists at the forefront of this song, it’s impossible not to hear their insatiably natural voice talent. While the song is produced very coherently with a multitude of multi-layered plugins, the beat and key signature/progression that drives this song forward is one of the biggest standouts in the production value. It leaves open an intelligently crafted opportunity to put some unforgettable vocal melodies and structures into the song; and The Keymakers duo do exactly just that. They put lyrical bliss in each verse, and put a climactic touch on the chorus that just makes you realize just how well written this song is.

    I must say, when we reviewed these guys the first time around, I was definitely curious on hearing what these guys would put out later on. And they definitely exceeded my expectations. This is an astonishingly banging track, and if you heard them from our prior review of these guys, you gotta hear this one.
