Press Release: Akiem Small – “Problems” Single

Article by: Justyn Brodsky

New York-based rising MC & songwriter, Akiem Small, has announced that he will release a new single on June 29th of this year in 2018.

Akiem’s track “Problems”, contemporary Hip Hop at it’s most infectious and compelling, was engineered by Andrew Krivonos and will be available digitally in both clean and uncensored versions from all the usual major platforms.

The song is about a man who has troubles with money and loves women. The track conveys a versatile fusion of Trap and R&B, but also takes an influence from Hip Hop and Retro R&B.

“…’Problems‘ tells a story about the type of person I am – a problem solver” commented Small. “…’Problems‘ come in all shapes, sizes, and forms and I know these are lyrics that many, many people from all kinds of environments can relate to.”

Born in the West Indies, Akiem Small made his way to New York determined to make his mark on the city’s music scene in 2014 and has been based there ever since. An artist that strives to make heartfelt and honest music, he writes and sings about urban life and what’s going on around him. The last four years in his new hometown have certainly been eventful and he’s gained more than an album’s worth of material from the experience.

A truly exciting young and rising Rap prospect, the multi-talented Small is without doubt one to watch and although he has yet to play live publicly, he has thrilled those lucky enough to catch him perform at close quarters.

“..’Problems‘ by Akiem Small is my favorite single of the season so far. He has a very versatile rap flow and I can’t wait to hear more from him.” Michelle S.

Article by: Justyn Brodsky

Elijah J is no stranger to the Entertainment industry. From successful acting roles, charting on the Billboard, and gracing the stage on Broadway, the R&B/Hip Hop recording artist and producer has been hitting the ground running since his childhood years and has continued his momentum with his hot new track “Release” (featuring KOI).

Accompanied by a cinematic and colorful music video (complete with a Hookah lounge!), Elijah J comes out swinging with his melodic and crafty verses with some impressive choreography to deliver maximum impact.

A song that expresses the trials and tribulations of relationships and the phases they go through, “Release” is a very versatile track that brings endless likability factors to the table and can easily become one of your new top favorites.

Elijah J brings even more of his persona to the video; his image, dance ability and charisma are at the forefront at all times, and really gives you a sense of who he is as an artist and musical personality. He cleverly sings over a heat-seeking beat that propels the song in a way that makes it fun, witty, and something that can easily get stuck in your head. The flow of his lyrics parallel perfectly with the choreography and overall production value; and delves into a world seen through the eyes of the artist and the enjoyment of the listener.

Feature artist KOI also delivers a well-executed rap verse that adds a whole different element to the track, and brings out another angle to the musicianship factors that any listener can appreciate. Many artists of this caliber seem like dime-a-dozen in today’s market, but none hit it out of the park quite like this.

Album Review: Blaze – “Born To Blaze” LP

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

If you are looking for a highly spiritual and captivating record with a great story-telling method, then Triunion Music artist Blaze‘s Born To Blaze will not let you down.

This Christian Hip Hop artist brings spirituality to a whole new level that really grasps at your heart and your mind. Blaze‘s album is versatile, multifaceted, and incredibly charismatic with his vocal deliveries and inspirational lyrical content that gets to the heart of real life situations. It’s extremely deep, passionate, and a joy to behold.

The beats incorporate many different genre elements and make great use of instrumentation and plugins. Each track is ambient and really flows together with Blaze‘s messages perfectly, and also showcases a handful of feature artists that really add artistic merit to this record.

One track that really stands out is the opener, “I Surrender (feat. Sarah McTiernan)”. With a soulful female-vocal hook cruising through this song, Blaze really hits the ground running with his spiritual lyrics and clever narrative. With elements of ambient Rock and Reggae influences that add many different moods to this track, you can’t help but fall head over heals with this record immediately. It’s an opening track that lets you know that you’ll be listening to every track on this album from start to finish.

Each track on Born To Blaze not only provides us with Blaze‘s signature style, but offers up something new and effective in every measure. You won’t hear the same song twice, but you’ll know it’s coming from the same artist; and that’s a very hard feat to reach in today’s mainstream market.

Blaze is a complete standout of his caliber and we at Artist Reach honestly can’t recommend him enough. If you’re in the mood for something fresh, powerful, well-crafted and highly spirited, then Born To Blaze is just for you.

The album is available now on iTunes, Google Play, SoundCloud, and other digital retailers.

Artist Review: Rocstarsmokey – “Take Off” feat. MH The Goat (Official Music Video)

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Coming straight outta Dallas, things get bigger in Texas with a new cinematic video and banging track from Rocstarsmokey and MH The Goat.

If you’re looking for a good time with nice cars, girls and a beautiful southern skyline, then the video for “Take Off” will suit your needs. Both Rocstarsmokey and MH The Goat, both Texas based rising rappers, bring diligently crafted bars and verses to this song and accompany it with a brilliantly paced video that shows us how Texas gets down during sundown.

With verses being shared by both rappers, we get a smooth demonstration of each artist with their witty rhyming schemes and clever vocal techniques. They both convey a laid back image that is more on the classy and comfortable side, and don’t overdose us with flashy-ness.

The beat in this song combines a versatile mix between an old school vibe combined with today’s mainstream production value, paying homage to both eras and really delivering a song that is not only likable, but sustainable as well; it’s definitely a track (and video) you can keep coming back to, and finding something new to appreciate every time.

Rocstarsmokey and MH The Goat collectively make “Take Off” a gem of a track, and we’re eager to see what these guys have up their sleeves next.

Artist Review: Emma Michelle – “Click Delete” (featuring Dani Cohn)

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

With a knack for charisma, aspirations and musical persona, we have a new queen of catchy in Emma Michelle‘s single “Click Delete”.

Accompanied by a colorful official music video alongside feature artist Dani Cohn, the girls pair up for a fresh tag-teaming song with witty punchlines and contagiously catchy hooks. Being at such a young age, this song and video has catapulted Emma‘s career into overdrive, amassing over 200,000 YouTube views in the first week of its release. With a fairly mixed reaction among the general public, we at Artist Reach fully endorse this track and have several reasons as to why.

This young artist brings forth an image that is stylish and completely likable. She acts like a young girl, well, because she is. But sings even better; she has one of those voices that delivers a versatile yet subtle sensibility that shares equal parts in energy and tenderness, and knows how to really showcase her colorful image.

Sharing verses and vocal duties throughout the track and video between the singing and cinematic components with Dani Cohn also gives us a glance into Emma‘s ability to collaborate and share the spotlight. With both girls meshing well throughout the video and song equally, their natural talent is very evident throughout every measure. From singing to rapping, harmonizing and vocal transitioning, “Click Delete” delves us into Emma‘s (and Dani’s) world of fun, friendship, musicianship, and ability to entertain a mainstream following in the better part of today’s more modernized Pop genre.

The biggest recommendation we can give is to listen to this track for yourself, and definitely watch the video. Emma Michelle is one of those younger artists that is fast on-the-rise, and worth every minute of your time.
