Artist Review: SuZen Releases Her Ambient And Inspirationally Moving Spoken Word Anthem “Jiva Is Shiva (The Mantra Mix)”

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Inspirational, motivational and spiritually anthemic, UK-based Yoga Chant & Spoken Word artist SuZen projects her words into insatiable passion and magical solace with her newest single “Jiva Is Shiva (The Mantra Mix)”.

Presented as the opening track of her 7-track album, this track is a vocal demonstration of visceral feelings, spiritual realms and unwavering essence of self. SuZen, real name Susan Ni Rahilly, is renowned as a Yoga and Meditation teacher and author, and considers herself “trans-genre”: a multi-dimensional teacher. She is also regarded as a Master in India. And this track is a very clear demonstration of her authentic talent and ability to showcase her expertise through the expression of music, and it’s very effective and nostalgic when you clear your mind and let her voice guide you.

This track is one of her seven spiritual laws of Yoga, and is designated for men between the ages of 25 and 40, most specifically during their drive time; a time they can get space and personal time to think. And it resonates beautifully with its artistic merit and SuZen‘s craft. It’s a track that is ambient, climactic and very multifaceted in its content and parallels perfectly with its production value. Her voice is an angelic and hypnotic presence and really leads your body and mind to a deeper inner place of relaxation, resolution and clarity. The multifaceted nature of the track is very natural and versatile; it really delves into the depth of SuZen‘s character, as well as your own. And that’s one of the most compelling components of “Jiva Is Shiva” – its ability to connect with the listener and bring them to a spiritual resolution.

The track was released on December 4th, and is currently available on several digital music retailers and streaming platforms. It’s an enchanting track that reflects SuZen‘s 25 years as a Yoga Teacher, specialist, and artist in her own right. You’ll never hear another one like her.

Artist Review: VeRich – “Benefit of a Doubt” EP

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Every once in awhile you run into an artist that truly hits the ground running. One that grabs your undivided attention from the very first listen, and leaves an everlasting impression on you that is insatiably unwavering. This is exactly the feeling we get from VeRich‘s newest EP Benefit of a Doubt.

This is a record with a strong message. It’s music for the underdog; people that have true potential, but end up being overlooked. It’s an EP attributed to those who are willing to do the legwork and whatever it takes to make dreams a reality.

With hypnotic versatility in his take on modern Soul and R&B, VeRich‘s style is multifaceted with his very effective vocal range and lyrically clever punchlines. His electronically infused signature sound also adds the perfect splash of Hip Hop with very dynamically crafted drum parts and multilayered vocal melodies that resonate with every song diligently and passionately. His powerful vocal projection in the track “Nocturnal” demonstrates this perfectly. From elite production value to brilliantly structured songwriting components, this melodic and anthemic track brings VeRich‘s voice right to the forefront with ambience and wholesomeness. His vibrant tones and next level lyrical techniques are futuristic and ahead of its time. This track screams out passion from beginning to end.

Jumping over to his electronic banger “Junky” and the atmospherically visceral “Your Loss”, both tracks add a plethora of musicianship factors and different angles to VeRich‘s craft and artistic merit. His vocal range fits like a warm glove throughout every melodic measure and every track resonates like chapters in a book. But the best thing about it is the EP never becomes repetitive nor does it use recycled ideas. These are carefully crafted songs, and the precision that went into the perfect parallels between the authentic songwriting and the producer’s crucial touches are truly something to behold, and very rare in its own right among today’s modern music realm.

If this is the first time you’ve ever heard VeRich, then prepare for an edge of your seat listening experience. If you already know him, then Benefit of a Doubt will be an absolute treat. Either way, he is an original in his own right, yet still brings familiarity to the table with some of today’s chart-topping superstars. At this rate, VeRich is well on his way to taking his place alongside the industry’s major players; and he’ll be a household name every music fan will recognize.

Press Release: Hendrix Drops His Hypnotic And Futuristic New Single “Dreams Fade”

Article by: Justyn Brodsky

With dreamlike vocal melodies, high-gain guitar riffs and multi-instrumental chord progressions that are cleverly executed and finely tuned in its high end production value, SoCal-based producer/recording artist Hendrix brings us on a futuristic journey with his newest hypnotic creation, “Dreams Fade”.

Accompanied by a cinematically animated and thought provoking music video, this innovative track starts off very ambient and delves into climactic verses and choruses that tell a compelling story from the very first measure. Featuring female/male dual-vocal roles taken on by Justin P. Schmuckle and Georgia Van Cuylenburg, this track brings beyond intriguing melody placements to the forefront of an already-brilliantly composed song structure that makes this song all the more magical and anthemic once it all blends together with its eclectic signature. Hendrix really cast the perfect stone for this track to create a hit that sticks with you even long after the song is over.

Delving into the multifaceted use of plugins and the tightly knit post production sequences that really add to the song’s foundation, this brilliant piece of work by Hendrix shares many tasteful elements that are electronically infused with high energy rock components and dynamically placed dueling vocal melodies. It’s a fresh sound that can still resonate with familiarity of music we’ve already come to know and love, yet still embraces an overall execution of something that is ahead of its time; and its quite amazing to listen to.

But I urge you to also watch the music video for this track as well. It makes the song much more visceral and really puts the visual aspect of the music right out to the forefront. It’s a feeling that can’t really be explained other than it parallels perfectly with the song’s futuristic feel. It has sequences that tell an inner story that isn’t something easily read on the surface, and can mean something different to all who watch and listen.

Overall, it’s the detail of the song and its precision that makes “Dreams Fade” an absolute gem. Precision of the producer’s chair, as well as the songwriting aspect. This track is a futuristic and melodically catchy anthem that will have your eyebrows raising. It’ll entice you to dive deeper into Hendrix‘ prior and future releases, and have you anticipating what tricks he has up his sleeves in the shortcoming,

“Dreams Fade” officially dropped today, December 11th, and is available on several digital music retailers and streaming platforms. This’ll be one of your favorite tracks before the year is out.

Artist Review: Dion Todd – “Remedy For Insanity (Club Cure)” EP

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

With a song that is catchy, multifaceted and electronically atmospheric, we get to hear different angles of the nostalgia with Dion Todd‘s Remedy For Insanity (Club Mix) EP.

This EP is comprised of very impressive remixes of the Remedy For Insanity single from several eclectic producers including Dave Audé, Bick Fiorucci, Joe Manila, Guy Scheiman, and Dan Slater; all putting their own spin on Dion‘s hypnotic track with their own remix and musical vision of the song’s aura.

Each version has different arrangements, textures and overall anthemic qualities with every remix and brings out a wholesome essence each time. The song is a solid and energetic exercise of melody, precision and outstanding production value that is perfect for today’s modern era of EDM and electronic music. Dion has a very projective vocal approach and really knows how to implement his melody choices into the track’s key signature and progressions.

And that’s what I love about remixes – getting to hear different sides of one project. And every remix has its exclusivity and ambient focal points as to what makes it a whole new song, even though it’s the same song – if that makes sense. It’s an EP you have to hear to believe in its own right, as its originality and familiarity share equal grounds.

This remix is great for your club, headphones, playlist, and the perfect addition to your catalogue of EDM/Dance favorites. Fans of Dion Todd will absolutely love this as well as all those who are just now discovering him.

Artist Review: Barendo – “Contradictions and Disconnections” LP

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

With keyboard-fronted melodies and viscerally dark vocals, Netherlands-based artist Barendo proves that the craft of his new album Contradictions and Disconnections is brilliantly themed and hauntingly original.

Concept albums are especially rare nowadays, especially ones that are effective and well executed. However Barendo‘s Contradictions and Disconnections is a rare gem in this caliber, and has written and composed a record that encompasses shades of both originality and familiarity. With each track sharing the theme of the title, containing a contradiction or disconnection, we get an exercise of beautifully accented progressions and atmospheric landscapes in every measure as Barendo embraces us with a signature sound that is melodically dark and full of textures.

His vocal range is very appropriate for his style, which blends artistic elements reminiscent of David Bowie and The Cure. It’s hard to put him into just one category, and that’s one of my favorite things about Barendo – his versatility. He extracts many authentic blends of several genres and never makes anything obvious about his sound. It’ll keep you guessing, perhaps debating. But all you know is that it’s very beautifully crafted, articulate, and stays true to the atmosphere of the album as a whole without being repetitive. He’s an original of his own right.

His vocal melody placements parallel each other perfectly in every track, and deliver up vocal content that is almost like whispering secrets into your ear. It’s ominous, dark, and soothingly ambient with an array of emotions when you truly listen to the lyrics. This is an album that is multi-layered and multifaceted in its concept, and Barendo never wavers from this aspect throughout every track.

Also, this is his debut album. His first release. Which is a big surprise granted that it’s gonna leave you very curious with what he puts out next. Some artists take several trials and tribulations to find their niche and authenticity, but Barendo definitely gets it right on the first try with Contradictions and Disconnections. It’s an album that is interesting, isn’t rushed, and has a lot of character depth and artistic merit. It truly knocked my wind out to know that this is a debut record, and scares me as to what tricks he has up his sleeves when he hits the studio again.

Contradictions and Disconnections is uniquely original and has endless likability factors that show several angles of Barendo‘s artistic glow. He’s like candle light, but never burns out. A glow stick that never loses its color. And delivers up a collection of songs that will stick with you throughout its duration. If you love concept albums with actual meaning behind them and songs with real musicianship qualities, then this record is a must-listen. You’ll be glad you did.

Press Release: AMA Iziian Slated To Drop His Album “Woke” On December 21st

Article by: Justyn Brodsky

If this were a competitive sport; I would be Bruno Mars & Childish Gambino vs Travis Scott & Prince.. with Led Zeppelin as referee

With an insatiable knack for smooth groovy guitars, glistening vocal melodies and versatile song structures, AMA Iziian proves that his upcoming album Woke will be one of the most multifaceted records to release before the year is out.

Comprised of charismatic vocals and harmonies that are reminiscent of today’s mainstream Pop artists, AMA‘s edgy Alt/Rock and at-times electronically grungy sound brings a new wave of funky riffs and measures to the forefront with undeniably catchy melody placements. The album screams of versatility; you’ll hear an array of different elements with each track, but know it’s still coming from the same artist. And that’s one of the greatest components of Woke – there’s something for everyone on this record.

Moving through his verses with a story-telling sweetness and high-ranged R&B infused vocal approach, we get to experience a solid range of different angles to AMA‘s artistic merit. From a vibrant energy in his opening number “Get It Together” to more ominously subtle textures in “Gentleman”, the facets of his signature sound are present at all times with a twist of something different in his highly eclectic sound. It’s an absolute rollercoaster from start to finish, and will surprise you by its retro style while being able to maintain an indie sensibility that is still mainstream-worthy.

But one of the most compelling things about this album is its ability to have staying power — where AMA‘s music stays with you even after the album is over. From melody structures that stay in your head or guitar riffs that have you guessing what’s next, no matter what, Woke is an album that stays with you and resonates with your musical fascinations. You’ll never hear anything quite like it, and you’ll be addicted to each track like a bad habit.

Woke officially drops on December 21st and will be available on all digital music retailers and streaming platforms. It’s the perfect release to end the year with, as well as begin your resolutions with for 2019. AMA will also be releasing his single “Naked Ballerina” on December 4th, which will also be released everywhere. If this is your first time discovering AMA Iziian, you’ll be very glad you did. Strap yourself in for a ride.
