Artist Review: IP Da Man – “In My Rarri” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

If you want an insanely charismatic beat to parallel a witty rhyming technique, then IP Da Man‘s newest banger “In My Rarri” is your draft pick.

Jumping into this track with IP‘s mid ranged vocal delivery and multi-layered transitioning definitely puts him at the forefront where his true core of talent can showcase itself most effectively. He definitely went into the studio prepared — his precision in each vocal take is very present throughout the tracking process.

IP also delivers up a sort of authentic blend of old school and modernized elements that combines a sound that has both originality and familiarity; putting a new spin on what we’ve come to know and love, so to speak. The production value on this track speaks for itself, but it’s the charismatic rhyming schemes that really sets IP apart from a lot of today’s more contemporary Hip Hop artists.

With “In My Rarri” carrying the weight for IP with the buzz that has been created with it, it definitely has you morbidly curious to see what tricks he has up his sleeves next. We’ll be one of the first ones to call first dibs.

Album Review: Sim Ross – “Mother’s Day Blues” LP

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

It’s rare nowadays that you run into one of those albums where you don’t have to skip over one track. This is exactly the case with the multifaceted and passion-driven “Mother’s Day Blues” album from Sim Ross.

Hailing from the elite Austin music scene in Texas, Sim Ross blends a dynamic signature sound that is comprised of roots-rock and Americana with edgier components and presented with limitless musicianship factors and production value. This is one of those clear and concise albums that you know you’ll love from the very first track.

One of Sim‘s notable singles, “Sweetness”, is a perfect example of how effective the likability factors from this album really is, and how it resonates with a great play on creating a multi-genre approach that brings out originality and familiarity. Taking some of the best components from his musical influences that range from Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, and The Black Crowes, Sim Ross‘s edgy vocal tones, innovative guitar progressions, and infectiously catchy hooks really brings every component to the forefront of showcasing Sim effectively, and properly. This is one of those songs that is more of an anthem – it doesn’t leave a stone unturned. The songwriting structure and overall presentation of this track delivers up one of the many gems that makes this album shine the way it does.

Taking a look at another angle of Ross, “Avalanche” brings us to a dark and witty aura that showcases the same signature that has been etched into the musical chemistry, but grasps a whole other part of you. With another powerful chorus and charismatic vocal delivery carrying the torch with authentic guitar work and all the right textures, we delve into another captivating track that brings versatility to this album that is indicative of precision and performance value.

This 14-song catalogue definitely gives a nod to an era when track sequence was an art form. It creates a narrative for the listener, and a perspective for the artist that you can identify with. “Mother’s Day Blues” is one of those albums you’ll keep coming back to time and time again, finding something new each time you play it from beginning to end. With an album this in-depth, creative, and beyond what you’ll anticipate, it definitely makes you eager to see and hear what Sim Ross puts out next. This is the type of artist you truly invest yourself into.

Artist Review: NuJ4X – “Dab (On Dem Haterz)” Music Video/Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky & Michael Annotti

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.

Artist Review: Bad Marriage – “Old School Stereo” Official Music Video

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Grab 5 of the best musicians you personally know with similar artist influences, stuff them into one explosive package, and this is the band you get.

A lot of artists have tried to “bring back” the hair band era. Most have failed at it, and some comically pushed themselves to notoriety with it (ie: The Darkness, Ugly Kid Joe, Green Jelly).

Then there’s Boston’s Bad Marriage. A band I truly believe has re-captured what other bands have tried their damndest to capture, but at the same time have put their own spin on the era. And their song “Old School Stereo”, accompanied by a cinematic music video, tackles this concept perfectly.

A band that’s only been around since 2016, these guys have it all – down to the image, style, talent, but best of all – songwriting ability. The chemistry and cog of the machine is comprised of riffy guitar tones and chugs, a pounding rhythm section, and a vocal range that fits this genre like a glove. And although Bad Marriage just by their photographs seem to be a band just lusting for the 80s, they are so much more than that. And it’s this particular song and music video that emphasizes exactly what they’ve managed to bring to the table.

Bringing all the elements from the late 70s and 80s we’ve come to know and love, “Old School Stereo” brings forth a concept that shows us that a band can still execute an old school genre in today’s mainstream sensibility. The video is straight-forward with girls, cinematography, a charismatic and energetic show experience, and a song & video that is produced in a way that showcases Bad Marriage most effectively. Everything from the dangerously catchy chorus, gang-style harmonies, and the overall aura that has made rock & roll what it is today.

And we are definitely not the first ones to take notice of the gem that this band really is. They’ve opened for a vast array of legendary acts, including Buckcherry, Eddie Money, Extreme, Dokken, the Michael Schenker Fest, John5, LA Guns, and many more.

I could seriously go on all day about how fucking awesome this band is, but I think it’d be a better idea to just take our word for it now and go watch/listen to “Old School Stereo” and let Bad Marriage speak for themselves. You’ll be glad we sent you there.

Artist Review: Rachael Hadassah – “Ain’t Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Charismatic, fun, with a funky vibe. Singer/Actress Rachael Hadassah hits us with a positive message on her fresh sounding single “Ain’t Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us”.

Jumping fresh into a music career, you might also recognize Hadassah from films like Amazon Prime’s Misunderstood Sadie, Anykah, and the dark twisted comedy Terrorizing the Todd. But now shifting from in front of the cameras to the front of he microphone, we capture a portrait of a very versatile and determined artist.

This single definitely has a fresh city club vibe to it, and garners elements of Hip Hop, and old school R&B with a 90s feel. The chorus delivers us a very catchy and identifiable presence that puts a fresh balance between charisma and texture when it comes to Hadassah‘s vocal range. Her vocals stand very close to the forefront and really put a witty edge to her overall execution of this song.

She definitely encompasses the passion that most artists lack nowadays; you can tell she’s not just after some money grab. She is an aspiring artist truly ready to come out of her shell and shine like a gem. And “Ain’t Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us” is a great indication that nothing’s gonna be stopping Rachael Hadassah‘s drive for success anytime soon.

Artist Review: Bygone Civility – “Circling Again” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky & James Henes

Infectiously catchy, top-notch musicianship, and limitless production value might be a few ways to describe Bygone Civility‘s single “Circling Again”, but we think it all combines perfectly as a way to portray this gem through the collective musician & listener’s ear.

This song really emphasizes on a lot of key factors — dynamic songwriting, quality lyrics, and versatility. This track is definitely indicative of musician’s that really have a chemistry when it comes to composition and production, because this song has endless likability factors.

Elements of the early-mid 2000s are present while we can still hear some of the iconic music we grew up listening to in the 90s era. The vocals are on point with the effective and charismatic-yet-subtle delivery, but keeps the perfect balance and composure that keeps its aura relevant, elegant, and out in the forefront appropriately.

“Circling Again” is definitely a brilliant demonstration of the members behind Bygone Civility. You can hear depth and substance contributed from each instrument and additive that is brought out authentically, and production-wise. They sustain a very natural sound and don’t marry themselves to a particular type of formula; you just hear a cast of dynamic musicians that are innovative, creative, and multifaceted with a signature sound and stylization that almost anyone can appreciate.

“Circling Again” will definitely entice you to look into more of what Bygone Civility has to offer. And we suggest you do just that. You will not be disappointed.

Artist Review: TreDay – “TreDay” Official Music Video

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

TreDay is more than just a rapper, he’s a true character.

Combining some of the illest rhyming techniques with unwavering humor, this master wordsmith brings out a style and image not seen in every day Rap or Hip Hop.

Accompanied by a hilarious and cleverly executed music video, TreDay seriously holds nothing back with his track (also called) “TreDay”. Seriously, this is one of those chubby dudes that’s gonna steal your smokin’ hot girlfriend.

He has a baby-faced persona that completely catches you off guard with his X-rated lyricism, but it’s done very tastefully with witty components of articulated rhyming structures and bars that are spit faster than the tongue can twist.

The video’s content has the perfect atmosphere for a track like this, and tells a funny story and narrative that’ll have you passing this video to your friends, and their friends. This track, and video, has viral potential and it wouldn’t surprise me in the least if it happened.

From a 90s stylistic beat to a very mid-ranged vocal delivery TreDay delivers us a mainstream worthy track with old school sensibilities that parallel each other perfectly, giving this song a type of catchiness that is easily contagious.

By the time you reach the end of this song and video, you just might believe that TreDay could become the next legitimate government holiday.
