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.

When it comes to atmosphere, ambience and enchanting production value, Odious Love‘s self-titled EP does absolute justice.
Each and every song is crafted to its perfection. This producer’s solo project goes beyond the realm of the average record release, and really puts his heart and soul into making the mixing board his sanctuary.
One highlight from this EP that must be mentioned is the single/music video for the track “If It’s Love,” a melodic journey into musical and visual bliss that showcases two dancers that represent the song’s overall content, with their movements telling the story.
First and foremost, the lyrics and vocal melodies in this song are on today’s mainstream level, reminiscent of superstars like Adele, Sia, and others of their caliber. It has an unforgettable chorus and timeless measures of blissful moods that parallel the song’s aura and innovative production perfectly. This is definitely a next-level song that will grab your attention.
Every track of this EP is an exercise of different angles from the same producer and his capabilities not only behind the board, but with songwriting as well. There is a lot of life and spirit breathed into these songs and this EP really reflects how versatile and dynamic Odious Love really is.
This is a masterpiece recommended for all out there who are itching to discover that next artist or project that will inspire you. Odious Love‘s EP does exactly that.

With dynamic choir harmonies, a strong positive message and top notch production value, Gospel has found a new kind of power in Laos In Harmony.
The New York-based group emerged onto the scene in 2005 and has been a powerful entity among the elite NYC music scene ever since. Their ministry has been a force to be reckoned with throughout the 5-boroughs and have been highly acclaimed from their moving performances and unwavering spirituality. And this is beautifully demonstrated in their newest uplifting single “I Win” accompanied by an eye-catching music video.
The song was written by the group’s director, Chelton Thorpe, a talented songwriter, producer and musician based in New York City. It’s a multifaceted and inspirational track with all the key elements of great production and performance value. In addition to this, the music video makes this track an astonishing audio and visual experience, giving the listener the full ride that Laos In Harmony offers. The landscapes of the Brooklyn Bridge with a cast of incredible vocalists right from the start draws you in from their insatiable passion and image. The song is dynamically crafted and colorful, and parallels with the video perfectly. It blasts off, and never slows down.
Their signature Gospel sound is fresh faced, enchanting, and every voice carries enormous weight with the song’s message and spirituality. It’s the type of song that gets you through struggles and really entices you to reflect on your life. The song reminds you that with Christ, you will be victorious. This is a powerful message for all music listeners, churchgoers, and those searching for a closer relationship with God.
“I Win” is a very feel-good song and Laos In Harmony really lifts your mood with it in every aspect of emotion, spirituality, and musicality. Their talent is sensational and their togetherness as a group makes this single/music video a magical journey into a whole new generation of the Gospel. This song is meant to inspire you, and once you take a listen yourself, you’ll feel exactly just that.

There is a lot of hype coming from the noise tank of EDM and its varieties. But when it comes to Nashville’s NuJ4X, we have a take on the genre with a much more multifaceted angle.
Combining a pounding rhythm and Hip Hop lyrical components, we have an explosive audio and visual package with NuJ4X‘s versatile single “Dab (On Dem Haterz). A song that is equally powerful to watch just as much as it is to listen.
Combining the concept of a lyric video and a found-footage spectrum with some innovative video editing, we have a track and music video that share perfect parallels. From dynamic vocal structures to infectiously catchy hooks, we have a chemistry of EDM that utilizes mainstream-worthy elements, and new ones that add a whole new flavor to it. It’s the type of video that needs to be seen to be believed.
Best of all, there are no cheat methods at play here. We don’t hear relentless auto-tune or overuse of plugins; we have a well-crafted track with outstanding execution and production value that any fan of the genre can appreciate. NuJ4X charisma and personality antics are also great additives. One thing most noticeable is the simplicity of the overall aura – we hear real music delivered up by a DJ with insatiable skills behind the turntables.
Once you grasp onto the track’s energy and stylization along with the overall content that “Dab (On Dem Haterz)” offers, you’ll be more than glad we told you about NuJ4X. Ultra Fest…we’re talking to you.

An audio and visual realm of ambience, texture, and a familiar versatile stylization.
With many years under their belts as songwriting musicians from the UK cityscapes of West London, dynamic studio-duo Empire of the Ants bring us a fresh take on stylized Electronic Rock with 90s-era Grunge and Industrial influences that are among some of the best we’ve come to know.
Their music video for “Radar” is a solid first impression of the band. With a low to mid vocal range in the forefront, this ambient and subtle track really explores a progressive edge that shows comparisons to pioneer artists such as The Cure, Muse, and David Bowie. With a driving rotund low end and attention-grabbing vocal content, this listening experience parallels perfectly with the visual experience perfectly, and really shows you a style and image that is not only fresh-faced, but pays homage to some of the best music eras we’ve come to know and love over decades.
Their second video “Sirens” brings a more upbeat side to the duo with great cinematic elements with stunning use of color. This grunge/industrial crossover sustains an energetic flow but still brings out the same ambience that really gives Empire of the Ants the signature sound that solidifies their artistic merit and persona.
Their third video, “Utopia”, is another stroke of visual gratification with excellent blends of black & white cinematography. The song is very climactic and utilizes significant structures that deliver a buildup that makes this song an effectively compelling measure-for-measure and frame-by-frame experience. This one definitely looks and feels like the heart of their sound, and showcases their originality the strongest.
All 3 of these music videos are very much worth the watch & listen. If you’re into the classic 80s/90s Rock/Industrial era with magnetic framework and production value of today’s modernization, then Empire of the Ants will be added to your list of discoveries you wished you discovered much earlier.
