Artist Review: NoE – “Outlet” Official Music Video

Review by: Justyn Brodsky


A knack for the cinematic and a master of flow, we get an ideal track and modern-stylized music video from NoE‘s most recent banger “Outlet”.

Right from the start, the video is definitely giving you the action, drama, and suspense. The song gives off that intro that something’s about to go down. And most impressively, you don’t need a 20,000$ set design to make something effective on camera. So I have to give major props to the video’s production value for giving us that edge-of-your-seat feeling.

“Outlet” is another crucial example of today’s line that is drawn between indie and mainstream markets. While the song has a commercially acceptable quality to it, the presentation still feels (and looks) natural and something that isn’t forced. It has a natural flow to the performance value behind the camera and inside the vocal booth.

The video gives us an Aronofski, Tarantino, and perhaps modern day Kubrick feel. Something where the editing gives us the most impact. Where sometimes it’s not what you shoot, it’s how you shoot it. And that’s one of the major centerpieces to both this song and video as it parallels each other perfectly.

NoE‘s mid-ranged vocal tones give off the perfect approach for this track and make it most effective. It’s definitely a banger for the Sony Xplodes and a spin track for your club hotspot. Either way you look at it, this song rides the express line in between commercial success, but still thriving at being a hard working indie artist ready to take the bull by the horns himself and make a career with his music without selling his soul to the industry. And no matter where you see this song going, you’re gonna love it no matter what. And that’s what truly matters.

Artist Review: Julia Rose – “Touch My Body” Official Music Video

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Think of Katy Perry and Alanis Morissette cross breeding, and you get the charismatic and catchy touch of  Julia Rose.

Her single “Touch My Body”  (accompanied by a very dynamic and colorful Music Video) is not only something recognizably lovable with the genre it fits in, but has the perfect balance between 90s classic Pop sound and today’s sensibility wrapped up into one tasty package. 

She really sustains an amazing aura, not just with her movements and ability of being in front of the camera, but in her vocal approach as well. Her range is perfect for a song like this and it even offers up a bridge and breakdown with a middle-eastern influence as well. It’s almost like Pop Culture shock, but that’s perhaps one of the most lovable parts about the production value and song altogether.

Julia Rose plays a very colorful and sensual role in this video, but also shows a very merciless side to herself with her knack for keeping things rough and moving forward effectively as the song plays on. The concept, though a simple one, is beautifully executed, and gives you that Aronofski feeling after watching the video. 

The back drops are kept simple, but I am more than certain that it was intended completely. The characters in this video also grasp onto a type of lighting that makes everything cinematic, effective, and unique with the talent in the cutting room. The editing is on-point and parallels with the song extremely well. Which is another captivating and defining factor to the entire vibe being placed right in front of you.

Overall, in my opinion, there’s no way you could dislike this song or video. It has that modern edge-of-your-seat feel while a perfectly mid-ranged Julia Rose encompasses you with her commercial-worthy vocal melodies and brilliant vocal tones that perfectly match her sensibility of combining beauty, edge, sexuality and sensuality. This is strictly candy for the eyes and ears.

Artist Review: S-EM-C – “On The Go” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky


I always tip my hat to females that can rhyme. This is another one of those moments in whole.

With drive, charisma, untouchable production value and a made-for-industry approach, there’s no question that female Rapper on the rise S-EM-C‘s “On The Go” is ready to go straight to the top.

She’s a trifecta of her own; from looks, brains and personality. She doesn’t need to try to pull a Trina, Kim, or Nicki anytime soon. The best is a fresh banger and has a universal authenticity when it comes to where this song is most appropriate. You can use this song to test out your new Sony Xplodes,  spin this at your club hotspot, or just simply put your headphones in (preferably: Skull Candy if you own a pair) and indulge in one of those songs that stays with you even after the track is over.

“On The Go” has a great classic multilayered chorus that brings power to the song’s overall execution. And the verses have a flow that keeps you fascinated enough to bring the chorus back to the structure each time she brings out her witty and clever lyrical approach.

And that’s what this song is about to me — flow and fascination. Defining factors of what can keep a song on its feet, or flop from its starting point. But this song emphasizes so much more than just being on your feet, this one has you cruisin’, and giving you another brilliant taste of what females can bring out when holding the mic.

So make no mistake, this a cooker that brings the heat, and the fascination that keeps you on your feet. Either way, “On The Go” is quite the treat.

Artist Review #2: Roman – “Dirty Bird” Single/Official Music Video

Review by: Justyn Brodsky & Dave Welsh


We’d like to welcome back our NYC brother and Alt/Rock Singer/Songwriter, Roman, for round 2 on the Artist Reach platform with his new infectiously catchy single, “Dirty Bird”, properly accompanied by a fun, witty, and entertaining Music Video. So in case any of you have been waiting for the Roman Empire to strike again, then your wait is over.
With this track, we have the formula that Roman is known for, however just like with every artist that evolves artistically as their careers manifest, we get some new surprises, twists, turns, and the same likability factors that always end up on overdrive.

With “Dirty Bird”, not only is the song very eclectic and well structured, but Roman‘s mid-ranged and charismatic vocals that carry a humble demeanor really continue to showcase in more impressive and memorable ways, solidifying his signature sound that sets him apart from your run-of-the-mill artists that sometimes tend to struggle to find themselves due to the oversaturation of cookie-cutting post-production antics. Luckily, we do not have this downfall with Roman at all; he is not only keeping his spark of the genre alive and well, but making it better than ever.

And with all this in place, we have a very interesting dynamic in the Music Video, where no matter what you’re doing; from taking a bath to chopping vegetables to cook dinner, you can always make room for dancing. This is a humble and good-hearted video that parallels a very authentic musician that doesn’t need an arena or humongous night club to emphasize a simple thing like getting down to a good song. 

There aren’t any antics that try to put Roman in an overwhelming setting with Lamborghinis, Bling Bling, or materialistic set designs that attempt to distract you from the song by shoving an artist’s ego down your throat. It’s a video that is natural, appealing, and very effective regardless of how simple or elaborate the production design is. Real talent will absolutely do the trick no matter what content or budget you have for a Music Video, so for Roman, this song definitely shines through no matter what his budget or production costs were used. It’s another direct piece of evidence that true talent goes above all, especially musical gimmicks or materialism.

Overall, Roman is an artist that never disappoints. He has a humble sensibility, down-to-earth characteristics, and an authentic signature sound and image that is very defined and memorable. “Dirty Bird” is definitely a must-hear for the ears, and a treat for the YouTube screen. We highly recommend you check out both, the song and video. You will be glad you did.

Artist Review: Sienna – “Quintessence” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky


When it comes to production value, it’s all about the elements of how and why a song is effective, and the uniqueness that is carried with it. We get an innovative, punchy, knockout beat banger with Producer Sienna‘s single “Quintessence”. A bump-and-grind go-getter track that brings a vibrant and bass-oriented chemistry to the table that puts solidification into musical innovation.

With a lot of today’s creators in the world of EDM, it’s imperative to showcase your versatility and composing ability in the best way possible, so you can give yourself and your audience an in-depth impression of your expression. Sienna has a very well-rounded craft with this track, and the intensity of the rotund low end combined with the anticipation from the song’s buildup is what really makes this track the gem that it really is.

If you have a bass-thumping sound system, then “Quintessence” will likely rumble through your entire neighborhood. It’s energetic, witty, clever, and has some great twists and turns as the song builds into a beautiful climax. It has a simple approach in its beginnings, and I believe it’s the type of simplicity that really makes this track effective when all the other elements play out.

Sienna definitely has a brilliant ear for detail and is worth checking out in every way. She delivers the goods with this single, and you’ll probably find yourself doing more research on more of her music after cranking “Quintessence” through your speakers.

Artist Review: Antonio Dudley – “Regret It” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky


There are some songs that truly showcase someone’s ability and talent in the most powerful way, by knowing the genre their voice was meant for, or for their insatiable writing ability. We get a direct hit with Antonio Dudley‘s “Regret It” (Feat. The Myster-E).

With a beat that pulls you right in, we have an auspicious introduction into the realm and feeling that Dudley‘s craft portrays. His vocal talent and passion is present almost immediately and it’s sung with the perfect balance and composure, putting a dynamic versatility behind the song along with the spot-on production value. There’s an ambience in the beat as well that I believe really makes this song as effective as it really is. It’s an extremely refreshing approach, and it’s apparent right when the song starts.
There’s also a magnetic energy behind this song. It especially takes place when Feature artist The Myster-E puts in his Hip Hop/Rap edge into the overall mix. It fits the chemistry perfectly and puts more astonishment into the song’s overall persona with the message it delivers. The likability factor is so high, it could possibly be a flawless track. Either way you dissect it, it’s almost impossible to dislike in any way.

Antonio Dudley‘s single definitely entices you to check out more of his music, and this single is definitely the correct one if he’s looking for instant-fan status. Chances are, anyone who stumbles upon “Regret It“…won’t regret it at all. You’ll absolutely love this song.

Artist Review: Lynn – “Rise High” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky & Dave Welsh


Eclectic, powerful, and an essence of maturity and range go hand in hand with 18-year old up & coming Starlet Lynn with her second highly acclaimed single, “Rise High”.

With an insatiable sweetness of acoustic textures and Grammy-worthy vocal melodies in the song’s verses, we experience an innovative and eclectic tone from Lynn‘s vocal structures that showcase both solid songwriting and undeniable passion in her approach. There is a very subtle, yet charismatic buildup that keeps your ears glued to this song, and the forefront of Lynn‘s undeniable vocal tone is one of the defining factors that carries the torch.
And like fireworks, Lynn brings us a flawless and anthemic chorus that creates an energy source that hits us hard. It does justice to the song’s title, and even puts the song’s entirety on a whole new level. It’s a Universal sound, but one that is written in a way that sets Lynn aside from the average female vocalist. If this chorus doesn’t amaze you, I don’t know what will.

With an uplifting music video to bring this song more to life, we get a great edge and uplifting personality from Lynn as an artist and person collectively. The song and video shares many positive parallels between the perfect balance of audio and imagery, and will likely entice you to research more into Lynn, as well as keep up with her in the shortcoming and beyond.
Overall, this is a teen artist that has some major things in her horizon, and “Rise High” is a powerful, and soul-filled uplifting track that will keep you on the edge of your seat, and the song on repeat.
