Artist Review: NoE – “Outlet” Official Music Video

Review by: Justyn Brodsky


A knack for the cinematic and a master of flow, we get an ideal track and modern-stylized music video from NoE‘s most recent banger “Outlet”.

Right from the start, the video is definitely giving you the action, drama, and suspense. The song gives off that intro that something’s about to go down. And most impressively, you don’t need a 20,000$ set design to make something effective on camera. So I have to give major props to the video’s production value for giving us that edge-of-your-seat feeling.

“Outlet” is another crucial example of today’s line that is drawn between indie and mainstream markets. While the song has a commercially acceptable quality to it, the presentation still feels (and looks) natural and something that isn’t forced. It has a natural flow to the performance value behind the camera and inside the vocal booth.

The video gives us an Aronofski, Tarantino, and perhaps modern day Kubrick feel. Something where the editing gives us the most impact. Where sometimes it’s not what you shoot, it’s how you shoot it. And that’s one of the major centerpieces to both this song and video as it parallels each other perfectly.

NoE‘s mid-ranged vocal tones give off the perfect approach for this track and make it most effective. It’s definitely a banger for the Sony Xplodes and a spin track for your club hotspot. Either way you look at it, this song rides the express line in between commercial success, but still thriving at being a hard working indie artist ready to take the bull by the horns himself and make a career with his music without selling his soul to the industry. And no matter where you see this song going, you’re gonna love it no matter what. And that’s what truly matters.

Artist Review: Julia Rose – “Touch My Body” Official Music Video

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Think of Katy Perry and Alanis Morissette cross breeding, and you get the charismatic and catchy touch of  Julia Rose.

Her single “Touch My Body”  (accompanied by a very dynamic and colorful Music Video) is not only something recognizably lovable with the genre it fits in, but has the perfect balance between 90s classic Pop sound and today’s sensibility wrapped up into one tasty package. 

She really sustains an amazing aura, not just with her movements and ability of being in front of the camera, but in her vocal approach as well. Her range is perfect for a song like this and it even offers up a bridge and breakdown with a middle-eastern influence as well. It’s almost like Pop Culture shock, but that’s perhaps one of the most lovable parts about the production value and song altogether.

Julia Rose plays a very colorful and sensual role in this video, but also shows a very merciless side to herself with her knack for keeping things rough and moving forward effectively as the song plays on. The concept, though a simple one, is beautifully executed, and gives you that Aronofski feeling after watching the video. 

The back drops are kept simple, but I am more than certain that it was intended completely. The characters in this video also grasp onto a type of lighting that makes everything cinematic, effective, and unique with the talent in the cutting room. The editing is on-point and parallels with the song extremely well. Which is another captivating and defining factor to the entire vibe being placed right in front of you.

Overall, in my opinion, there’s no way you could dislike this song or video. It has that modern edge-of-your-seat feel while a perfectly mid-ranged Julia Rose encompasses you with her commercial-worthy vocal melodies and brilliant vocal tones that perfectly match her sensibility of combining beauty, edge, sexuality and sensuality. This is strictly candy for the eyes and ears.

Artist Review: Uyoka – “Jupitersong” EP

Review by: Justyn Brodsky


Enchanting, ambient, and strikingly cinematic with moods that can have you walking through the city streets, and feeling the vibe and aura coming at you from every direction.

There’s a lot of different ways to describe this dynamic and beautifully-crafted record. Uyoka‘s Jupitersong displays artistic merit, and production value that fits the EP’s ingredients perfectly. This has very powerful moods and innovative musical spectrums that bring out different angles of genres we know and love today. With Jupitersong, I hear an R&B and Alternative crossover with very subtle vocal textures that showcase beautifully written melodies and lyricism that parallels it beautifully. With her deep vocal tones and great use of layering her backups, I can hear musical influences ranging from Natalie Merchant, Tracy Chapman, to Alanis Morisette and Bjork.

Her opening track “Aquaheart”, we have pure emotion and an introduction to the Soul side of the record. With a chord progression that can easily play at your heart strings, it’s hard not to fall head over heels for this song. Uyoka‘s vocal textures drive this track forward and definitely keep you fascinated.

With “Love Song”, we get a very good-vibes-only stride with the straight-forward rhythm section and soundtrack-worthy vocal melodies. This one displays more of a verse-to-chorus buildup that gives this song character and wit in all the right places. A very interesting and dynamic changeup to this song’s predecessor.

“Diamonds, Silver, and Gold” is definitely the radio hit and most-likely most-notable track. It has that chorus that sticks with you long after the song is over and keeps the song structure simple and memorable. It’s a fantastic execution of something that could be called contemporary, but with likability factors that prevent this song from being generic. It’s a feel-good experience. Her song “Firestarter” sort of follows up from what’s already been structured as well, and maintains the feel-good vibe we’ve come to hear so far on this EP.

“Daydreamer” and “The Star” are great closing tracks, with a charismatic back-to-back sensibility that works for both songs like an anthem that could attach itself easily to the other. They are songs that conclude something that reminds you of a sound, vibe, and texture you haven’t heard quite yet. And by the time you finish this EP, you’re gonna add this to your list of favorites, and pass it along to your friends.

Uyoka‘s thoughts and inspirations behind the EP: “This album explores my introspective thought process, and I hope it gives listeners a chance for them to stop and think, even if it’s just for a little while. It’s so important to take that time and really get in touch with yourself. And who knows – you might also discover something new.”

Artist Review: The Mox & J. Project

Review by: Justyn Brodsky & Chris Barbosa


An expressive journey into a multi-genre and multifaceted display of emotions, self reflection, and versatility.

Blending very infectious elements of Soul, R&B, and Hip Hop, The Mox & J. Project‘s Who We Are LP is definitely a creative collection of tracks that puts this dynamic duo on the mark. This is another one of those rare gems where you can’t just pick one song off of this album and call it a “hit” or a “single”. Because the entire album does justice, and stands out as a whole.

With a beautiful, soulfully mature and dynamic female vocalist bringing you the hooks, melodies, and lyrical sex drive to the table, it’s nearly impossible to ignore the character and persona that is being expressed through the very impressive vocal range and texture that solidifies her half of the duo’s equation. It’s mesmerizing and astonishing with the glow that her voice brings.

Jumping to the other half of the whole, we have a very charismatic and passionate flow from the rhymes, bars, and measures that are expressed through the male rapper’s edginess and self expressive nature. He has very clean vocal tones that perfectly meshes with his female partner of melody.

Who We Are is definitely appropriately titled from the self expressive tracks that encompass the meaning and uniqueness of the album. You get to grasp onto a very solidified and well-polished signature style, but you get a taste of something different in every track. That’s what makes this dynamic duo stand out with this album.

The Mox & J. Project are anything but a letdown. If you’re looking for something with a bold and new feel with many different songwriting techniques and surprisingly unique sensibilities, then Who We Are is an album just for you.
