    Artist Review: Yann Sella – “Turning Circles” feat. Manchester Rain

    Article by: Justyn Brodsky

    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. It’s not your average exercise in EDM or Electronic Music, “Turning Circles” stays within a realm of its own and really showcases Yann‘s insatiable talent and passion for music.

    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.
