Artist Review: SuZen Releases Her Ambient And Inspirationally Moving Spoken Word Anthem “Jiva Is Shiva (The Mantra Mix)”

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Inspirational, motivational and spiritually anthemic, UK-based Yoga Chant & Spoken Word artist SuZen projects her words into insatiable passion and magical solace with her newest single “Jiva Is Shiva (The Mantra Mix)”.

Presented as the opening track of her 7-track album, this track is a vocal demonstration of visceral feelings, spiritual realms and unwavering essence of self. SuZen, real name Susan Ni Rahilly, is renowned as a Yoga and Meditation teacher and author, and considers herself “trans-genre”: a multi-dimensional teacher. She is also regarded as a Master in India. And this track is a very clear demonstration of her authentic talent and ability to showcase her expertise through the expression of music, and it’s very effective and nostalgic when you clear your mind and let her voice guide you.

This track is one of her seven spiritual laws of Yoga, and is designated for men between the ages of 25 and 40, most specifically during their drive time; a time they can get space and personal time to think. And it resonates beautifully with its artistic merit and SuZen‘s craft. It’s a track that is ambient, climactic and very multifaceted in its content and parallels perfectly with its production value. Her voice is an angelic and hypnotic presence and really leads your body and mind to a deeper inner place of relaxation, resolution and clarity. The multifaceted nature of the track is very natural and versatile; it really delves into the depth of SuZen‘s character, as well as your own. And that’s one of the most compelling components of “Jiva Is Shiva” – its ability to connect with the listener and bring them to a spiritual resolution.

The track was released on December 4th, and is currently available on several digital music retailers and streaming platforms. It’s an enchanting track that reflects SuZen‘s 25 years as a Yoga Teacher, specialist, and artist in her own right. You’ll never hear another one like her.

Artist Review: VeRich – “Benefit of a Doubt” EP

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Every once in awhile you run into an artist that truly hits the ground running. One that grabs your undivided attention from the very first listen, and leaves an everlasting impression on you that is insatiably unwavering. This is exactly the feeling we get from VeRich‘s newest EP Benefit of a Doubt.

This is a record with a strong message. It’s music for the underdog; people that have true potential, but end up being overlooked. It’s an EP attributed to those who are willing to do the legwork and whatever it takes to make dreams a reality.

With hypnotic versatility in his take on modern Soul and R&B, VeRich‘s style is multifaceted with his very effective vocal range and lyrically clever punchlines. His electronically infused signature sound also adds the perfect splash of Hip Hop with very dynamically crafted drum parts and multilayered vocal melodies that resonate with every song diligently and passionately. His powerful vocal projection in the track “Nocturnal” demonstrates this perfectly. From elite production value to brilliantly structured songwriting components, this melodic and anthemic track brings VeRich‘s voice right to the forefront with ambience and wholesomeness. His vibrant tones and next level lyrical techniques are futuristic and ahead of its time. This track screams out passion from beginning to end.

Jumping over to his electronic banger “Junky” and the atmospherically visceral “Your Loss”, both tracks add a plethora of musicianship factors and different angles to VeRich‘s craft and artistic merit. His vocal range fits like a warm glove throughout every melodic measure and every track resonates like chapters in a book. But the best thing about it is the EP never becomes repetitive nor does it use recycled ideas. These are carefully crafted songs, and the precision that went into the perfect parallels between the authentic songwriting and the producer’s crucial touches are truly something to behold, and very rare in its own right among today’s modern music realm.

If this is the first time you’ve ever heard VeRich, then prepare for an edge of your seat listening experience. If you already know him, then Benefit of a Doubt will be an absolute treat. Either way, he is an original in his own right, yet still brings familiarity to the table with some of today’s chart-topping superstars. At this rate, VeRich is well on his way to taking his place alongside the industry’s major players; and he’ll be a household name every music fan will recognize.

Press Release: Hendrix Drops His Hypnotic And Futuristic New Single “Dreams Fade”

Article by: Justyn Brodsky

With dreamlike vocal melodies, high-gain guitar riffs and multi-instrumental chord progressions that are cleverly executed and finely tuned in its high end production value, SoCal-based producer/recording artist Hendrix brings us on a futuristic journey with his newest hypnotic creation, “Dreams Fade”.

Accompanied by a cinematically animated and thought provoking music video, this innovative track starts off very ambient and delves into climactic verses and choruses that tell a compelling story from the very first measure. Featuring female/male dual-vocal roles taken on by Justin P. Schmuckle and Georgia Van Cuylenburg, this track brings beyond intriguing melody placements to the forefront of an already-brilliantly composed song structure that makes this song all the more magical and anthemic once it all blends together with its eclectic signature. Hendrix really cast the perfect stone for this track to create a hit that sticks with you even long after the song is over.

Delving into the multifaceted use of plugins and the tightly knit post production sequences that really add to the song’s foundation, this brilliant piece of work by Hendrix shares many tasteful elements that are electronically infused with high energy rock components and dynamically placed dueling vocal melodies. It’s a fresh sound that can still resonate with familiarity of music we’ve already come to know and love, yet still embraces an overall execution of something that is ahead of its time; and its quite amazing to listen to.

But I urge you to also watch the music video for this track as well. It makes the song much more visceral and really puts the visual aspect of the music right out to the forefront. It’s a feeling that can’t really be explained other than it parallels perfectly with the song’s futuristic feel. It has sequences that tell an inner story that isn’t something easily read on the surface, and can mean something different to all who watch and listen.

Overall, it’s the detail of the song and its precision that makes “Dreams Fade” an absolute gem. Precision of the producer’s chair, as well as the songwriting aspect. This track is a futuristic and melodically catchy anthem that will have your eyebrows raising. It’ll entice you to dive deeper into Hendrix‘ prior and future releases, and have you anticipating what tricks he has up his sleeves in the shortcoming,

“Dreams Fade” officially dropped today, December 11th, and is available on several digital music retailers and streaming platforms. This’ll be one of your favorite tracks before the year is out.

Artist Review: Vladimir Sterzer – “Black Mirrors” LP

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

With beautiful piano landscapes and visceral measures in every track, Vladimir Sterzer brings us on a musical journey of emotions, ambience, and a surreal atmosphere with his album Black Mirrors.

Comprised of 16 tracks that are ominously dark and brilliantly melodic, Black Mirrors is just as thought provoking as it is peaceful. Each song is written and performed with absolute precision and encompasses raw emotion that parallels with the top notch production value. It’s an unwavering story-telling album that can mean something different to each person that listens, and is instrumentally dynamic as it is simple at times, though always appropriate.

Vladimir brings us more than just a collection of songs with this album, he brings us anthems, compositions of glistening textures and unforgettable piano swells that grab your attention from the very beginning. It’s an album you feel, one that you can listen to no matter the moods that are involved. It’s an album that allows you to escape the clutches of personal conflict and really release your anxiety.

Black Mirrors is an album that really puts a modern spin on some of the most prominent classical music over many generations and musical eras. It’s a rare treat and an absolute gem in its own right; and really showcases the brilliance of Vladimir‘s songwriting and overall signature sound. There is endless beauty in this album, no matter how you listen to it. And you’ll find yourself coming back to these tracks time and time again; as they are truly timeless compositions.

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Taking on an innovative and modern approach to the Pop genre, Paris-based rising solo artist Aleks Ander proves that he is a force to be reckoned with in his newest single “Faut Partir”.

With very impressive mid-ranged vocals and melodic melody placements, Aleks brings the strongest components of his craft right to the forefront with this single in many effective ways. Accompanied by a very cinematically colorful music video, Aleks comes out swinging from the very first measure of the song with his unwavering passion, and never wavers from the track’s dynamic and visceral aura both musical and visually; giving the listener experience the full package of what “Faut Partir” offers up.

His admirably clean vocal tones are comprised of very versatile harmonies and strong lyrical projections of his native French language. But the best part is – you don’t need to be fluent in French to hear how dynamic Aleks is with his melodically crafted hooks and songwriting structures. His strongest musicianship factors are the centerpiece of this track and really showcase his passion for singing and putting together a track that is ambient, atmospheric and contagiously catchy.

This is a brilliant song and video for all who already know Aleks Ander, and an even bigger treat for those who haven’t discovered him yet. It’ll definitely have you delving deeper into his catalogue, career, and future prospects. “Faut Partir” is currently available on several digital music retailers and streaming platforms, and we honestly can’t recommend this song highly enough. You’ll be more than happy you gave it a listen.
