With a passion for fashion and leaving an everlasting impression with his versatile vocal compositions, R&B singer Phillip Gilchrist will do you no wrong. He’s very multifaceted, melodic and really gives your ears quite the treat. His signature sound is perfect for today’s Pop and R&B realm and really proves it two-fold with his newest single “Song On The Radio.”

Not trying to be witty or anything, but this song definitely should be on the radio. The catchiness of the chorus on this song is one you’d definitely hear on any Top 10 radio countdown. Phillip‘s voice really carries the torch on this track with his mid-to-high vocal range and really sings with his own stylization reminiscent of Ne-Yo, Usher and others of a similar caliber. This song is definitely for the ladies though; it’s sexy, has plenty of swagger and really gets the sweat going once the track starts to move you. Whether you’re in a club or by yourselves, this song’s magic takes you with it.

This song has some incredible power that goes way passed the radio, but definitely sharpens the edges of a solid hit that could cut through the airwaves. It’s a home run, touch down, and goal all at once. The production value is right where it needs to be, the post production doesn’t have unnecessary antics and the authenticity of the vocal progressions are naturally executed. Once you take a listen to “Song On The Radio,” you’ll be keeping tabs on Phillip Gilchrist‘s career, including an EP he currently has in the works. You can find this current single on Spotify, Apple Music, and several other digital music streaming platforms.

Neoborn Caveman – “12 Days of Love” Single

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

Neoborn Caveman has graced our platform before. And the more we get to know him, the more versatility of his musical stature comes to light. His single “12 Ways of Love” is definitely a rollercoaster ride of one of his many angles of multifaceted goodness that truly shines on a path that bridges the gap between originality and familiarity; giving us even more insight into NC‘s soundscapes and artistic merit.

Utilizing a more electronically infused signature sound, from beginning to end, NC‘s vocals resonate both lyrically and rhythmically parallel. And that’s what makes this song truly unique – we get to indulge into NC‘s vocal abilities in ways that are multilayered with standouts of their own.

The usage of EDM is very anthemic and organized. Everything flows melodically much like his other material, but, “12 Ways of Love” is a modern treat for the ears that brings forth a futuristic sound that is also comprised of many familiar vocal melody structuring. And that’s another facet of this song – structuring. We get genre-bending elements that are surprising but still smoothly transitioned in a way that doesn’t throw the song off. Oh, and the subtlety in NC‘s voice manages to sustain perfectly alongside his musical character. The many elements used to suspend every measure of this song is chosen wisely and crafted carefully. This song has twists and turns, but never strays from its actual foundation that the track starts with. “12 Ways Of love” is one big dose of versatility with its own sense of sweetness, splendor and charm all doused in one electronic package of compelling production value.

“12 Ways of Love” releases August 31st and will be available everywhere including all digital music streaming platforms.

Exclusive Review: Kevin Sihwan – “Catch Up” Album

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Cover Art of Kevin Sihwan’s “Catch Up” Album

When it comes to Philly/NYC’s Kevin Sihwan, DJing is the name of the game, along with the mastering of production value. Originally hailing from South Korea, Kevin has always sustained an insatiable passion for the electronically infused genre and the prospect of creating music throughout the EDM world. Once he came to the states to attend school in Philadelphia, that passion would come to fruition with his amazing energies and versatile six track banger, “Catch Up.”

Well, we certainly caught up with Kevin‘s album, and it has quite the ability to turn heads when it comes to multifaceted EDM stylizations. Title track “Catch Up” really sets the tone nicely with its bassy forefront and really utilizes buildups effectively while also being able to change moods. Don’t let the bass get ya! But it certainly will. The structure is dynamic, flows consistently and never tries to outdo itself. “Fallout” continues with its intensity-driven buildups and breakdowns, leaving no stone unturned when it comes to really putting a signature tone on the production value. It’s definitely the most melodic track and definitely resonates between one sequence to the next. The synth parts are beautifully crafted and really helps carry the torch when it comes to the album’s versatility.

“Bassline” has a little bit of a change of pace and adds a fun Hip Hop edge with excellent video game pacing. This track’s interlude is definitely anthemic and really flows perfectly with the feature vocal track. It’s another solid demonstration of what Kevin can do behind a mixing board, and never strays himself far from his own creative signature sound. This track just might end up being your favorite. “Rolling Thunder” showcases more drums and synths than anything and truly gives every angle of this track strength. The “whoa!” parts of this track definitely add a very significant touch that really keeps the listener focused and willing to stay for the whole ride. “Dance All Night” and “Get To Me” are perfect closing tracks to this record. While “Dance All Night” sticks to a similar formula to the previous tracks, it’s the 90’s and Rhodes Blues influences this song offers up with a very effective female vocal feature that truly makes this closer a gem. It’s a softer touch compared to the other tracks, but adds so much charm to the point where this change up can be perfectly warranted. It has melodic structure that really steps up to the plate, a visceral vibe and untouchable likability factors .

“Catch Up” starts and ends with a bang. These can easily be club hitters that could get any dance floor moving and any crowd vibing. While the record has its twists and turns, it still sticks to that signature sound that Kevin Sihwan manifests from the beginning – and never lets up. This is a six-track record that will blow the lid off any EDM enthusiast, and the production value is one of many reasons, but a crucial one to say the least. “Catch Up” is a melodic journey of buildups and breakdowns that everyone will love. The record is currently available on YouTube, Spotify and several other digital music streaming platforms.

Exclusive Review: Phillip Foxley – “I’ll Try ‘Till I Die” LP

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

Cover Art of Phillip Foxley’s ‘I’ll Try ‘Till I Die’

I never thought I’d see a clean cut man of Phillip Foxley‘s age performing some of my favorite Rock, Punk and Indie styles. His long lengthy 29-track album, ‘I’ll Try ‘Till I Die,’ is an anthemic collection of songs with crunchy guitar, dynamic leads and vocal melodies that tie it all together into one rockin’ package; and it’s anything but a disappointment.

After releasing a vast array of singles, this debut album, though a long journey of a listen, is worth every listen. Opening track “I’ve Forgotten Something Else!” is an explosive and in-your-face catchy track with some of the best guitar progressions and vocal melody combinations that have been put together in this era. Phillip is not just another musician searching for that next groundbreaking sound that has over theatrical antics with post production; it’s good old plug-in-and-play, writing effective songs, and just going for it. His sound is reminiscent of classic 90s/2000s bands like Saves The Day, Ramones and The Suicide Machines. You hear this right off the bat, he’s not after anything innovative or seeking that next big thing, he just wants to write songs that are fun-filled, energetic and catchy enough to draw you in to his flavorful Rock sound.

Now again, there’s 29 tracks to choose from. While they all maintain consistency, each track offers new angles to Phillip‘s talent; adding in feature artists, instrumentals and different tastes of his signature sound and stylization. His piano track “Promises” is beautifully crafted with waves of backup vocals, gorgeous string arrangements and is hauntingly visceral from the very first listen. This album, literally, has something for everyone and offers up an anthemic sound that is comprised of multifaceted textures and versatile measures. It’s just one of many songs that will surprise you, but still fit among the rest of the album’s content.

Phillip Foxley is quite a find, and anyone that can resonate with the late 80s and 90s Rock sound with classic Emo and Indie flavors will absolutely fall head over heals with this record. It’s currently available on several platforms and we can’t stress enough how much we recommend picking this one up.

Press Release: Toronto-based Indie/Hip Hop Artist Holy Ramen Brings Us On A Visceral Journey Of Emotion With Her Debut Album “Oblivion”

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

Cover Art of Holy Ramen’s Album/LP “Oblivion”

When it comes to solidifying a signature sound that is vital, impressionable and attention-grabbing with versatility, a lot of the time it can take several trials and errors to finally gather all the musical elements needed to encapsulate that manifestation of creating your music to mix all the ingredients just right, in a way where all flavors come together for any listener who discovers you through their insatiable taste for something new. Then every once in awhile, there are rare gems that come out of the woodwork with something that hits the ground running from the very first try. That gem is Holy Ramen‘s debut release of “Oblivion.” A 10-track juggernaut of multifaceted keyboard driven songs with several dynamic vocal styles that lend each track their own sensibility of balance and composure; touching on equal parts originality and familiarity in clever ways throughout each song.

Utilizing vocal styles that sway between melody, spoken word and rapping, HR‘s very self aware stylization is filled with many thought-proving measures that explore subtlety, anticipation and buildup all in the right places that keep you fascinated on her vocal approach and overall demeanor. Her many moods and stories are at times very sad but also cross into more vital territories that bring you on a rollercoaster ride of steep hills, twists and turns; sometimes unexpected. But this definitely adds to her unwavering cleverness and tends to lead you down a path where your expectations are far different from the outcome. And all in the best possible ways.

The Hip Hop banger on this track is definitely “Possessed,” an in-your-face Hip Hop onslaught that never lets up once the verses drop. HR‘s swaggerish rapping style is showcased relentlessly on this track through many angles, including a smooth yet projective flow that gets her rhymes to come together diligently but almost flies right passed you if you take your attention off these finely-tuned details that require some next level attentiveness. Closing title track, “Oblivion,” however, is a beautifully melodic track with sensual piano progressions that really showcase many crucial facets of HR‘s artistic merit through her mind, body and soul. It’s the perfect ending to a brilliant debut record that really explores endless moods, auras and atmospheric textures that really get us to understand Holy Ramen‘s ideas and emotions. Her artistic approach to this album encompasses something different with each song, but you can still tell that it’s coming from the same artist. If you truly wanna hear a debut album that hits it out of the park from the very first try, then ‘Oblivion’ is a must listen in every way and will easily become a favorite for 2020. The album drops on August 8th, this Saturday. It will be available on Spotify, Apple Music and several other digital music streaming platforms.
