Artist Review: Juice Sinatra – “Go” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

This Houston Rapper-on-the-rise is making some serious moves, and for good reason. Google the name Juice Sinatra and you might exhaust yourself after about 16+ pages of results. And that’s one thing this guy has his sights on — results. Also the CEO & Founder Of Sweet November Records, this artist didn’t just come out the gate, he flew out.

Juice Sinatra‘s “Go” isn’t just a wide-received Single, but critically acclaimed as well. This track carries an old school vibe, but wittingly implements some of today’s more notable mainstream sensibilities that makes this banger a song for just about anyone that appreciates Indie Hip Hop the way it’s supposed to be.

With charismatic rhyming schemes and a fun, up-beat to parallel the flowing nature of the production value, Juice delves into a type of lyricism that is edgy, clever, and innovative. With a very unforgettable beat & tempo to help carry the torch, “Go” is one of those tracks that doesn’t need a bombardment of Feature artists, overly compressed vocal theatrics, or any kind of saturation whatsoever; Juice can handle this one all by himself, and it really elevates and demonstrates the tone that he sets to give this song all the likability factors that it has.

Best of all, Juice Sinatra brings his own elements to the table in his own versatile way; something that most artists lack when it comes to executing an effective track. And that’s what we hear on this single — effectiveness. Something that gives you a reason to come back to this song again and again, but at the same time, entice you to dive in deeper into more of Juice‘s catalogue.

The best Hip Hop nowadays 9 times out of 10 comes from the Indie scene. And Juice Sinatra‘s “Go” is definitely one of those memorable tracks that supports this fact. He’s one of those on-the-rise artists you need to pay very close attention to. Because if this is the first time you’ve heard of him, rest assured it definitely won’t be the last.

Artist Interview: Trilhoutte

Interview by: Justyn Brodsky

A few days ago, we did an Exclusive Review with Dynamic Duo, Trilhoutte. Now, we’re bringing them back to the platform for an Exclusive Interview; a look inside their career as their music continues to build an insatiable buzz. So we caught up with Ty and Shaq with a set of questions that’ll give an insight to their past, present, and future
1. Where are you guys currently based out of?

Right now we are currently based out of Atlanta.

2. What inspired you guys to get into music?

Ty: I grew up around a family full of singers and musicians and in the church playing instruments such as the drums and keyboard. I would always sing to myself and when I was by myself or around my brother because for a long time I was shy. I always knew I would end up doing music but at first I just wanted to produce. Two years ago I finally went to the studio with an affiliate artist named juice and dropped some vocals and I really liked the way people vibes from my music. So ever since then it’s been a passion. 

Shaq: his is all long… it started with I miss you tracks to my ex girlfriend that caught the attention of every woman besides her lol. So I kept with it, with the help of jojo the voice and Feek. Dropped a lot of music but I had a bad habit of dropping music and taking it down. I’m a perfectionist at some times. I hate to say that shes why I started taking it serious but it’s the truth. My mom and family wants to do music and are musically talented but most sit in the shadows I got tired of sitting on it basically.

3. What are your goals in your career currently? Big or small.

Our first goal is working on our new project while currently pushing our hit single “1×1=x”. We want to prepare people for this new project because it’s not your typical R&B. We have a very unique sound and we are putting our all into this next project to make sure that our fans really enjoy it and that we stand out in R&B with our different sound. Also our goal is to make sure that we have 2018 booked and full of shows and continue pushing our brand.

4. Who are some of your biggest Artist Influences?

Ty: Chris brown, Big Sean, Michael Jackson.

Shaq: R. Kelly, and Eric Bellinger.

5. What have you learned the most since becoming active Artists?

We have learned that it’s all about patience, consistency, faith, and hard work. We had to realize it starts with us first and our vision for Trilhoutte. We had to first believe in ourselves, be patient and become business minded because most people aren’t as visionary minded as we are. Also you have to set goals and work to achieve them and it’s very important to find a team of people that have the same mindset.

6. What’s been your best and worst show so far in your career, and why?

Ty: My first show was definitely my worst show. I performed with a affiliate artist named juice and I was really prepared as much as I thought. Also the speaker set up was bad and I couldn’t hear myself so I was singing off on certain parts of my songs. 

Shaq: prolly my first show too. I mean when I was younger I definitely wasn’t the same as I am now. It took time. Feek really gassed me up over the years so I Feek Like I stand on the stage with the top R&B artist around. 

7. What song, single, album, or release in general has been your most successful so far?

Our single “1×1=x” has been our best song and has gotten the most recognition so far on Spotify. We feel like that’s a great start to show our fans how unique our sound is and it’s only a sneak peak into how amazing our first project will be. 

8. What music are you currently working on and when can we expect it to come out?

Right now we are currently working on new songs for a project which will most likely be coming out before this year ends. At the moment we will continue to push “1×1=x” so that we can keep gaining more fans and more attention and we will most likely drop our cover to Chris Brown’s song “Popping” just to give something to the fans because we have been dropping teasers and they’ve been loving it.

Artist Review: Trilhoutte – “1×1 = X” Single 

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

A track that has yesterday’s Classic R&B foundation with today’s Hip Hop sensibility is quite a treat. It’s also a chemistry that sets the groundwork for marketing and reaching an audience that is bound to take an immediate liking to what is presented.

That’s what makes Trilhoutte‘s infectiously catchy single “1×1 = X” the gem that it really is, and glistens with some very high likability factors with its versatility and familiarity of the genre that this song combines in its own effective way.

With sing-songy stylized verses that could be comparable to Ne-Yo and Nelly, the Rapping and melody combination emulates a fluid and charismatically well-crafted flow that brings out a versatile edge that sets this song apart from your average artist. The syllable-wise and wordsmithy approach really hits home without sounding generic, run-of-the-mill, or pretentious. 

This is a track that shines on a whole other level, while still being able to utilize the mainstream elements of today’s Hip Hop and R&B that you might hear on Hot 97 or 106 & Park. This song has one key factor that is very difficult to compose with today’s saturated pop-culture influenced songwriting–staying power. That memorable and infectious feeling you get after the song is over; something that stays with you and perhaps becomes a part of you. It’s a very hard thing to achieve, and even in today’s industry standard of what is called a “hit song” still doesn’t do justice to true staying power that a song can manifest. And Trilhoutte accomplishes this rarity with this single.

Artist Review: Untitled Art – “Philly To Long Branch Part 2” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Energetic, fast, relentless, and a blast of versatility in the EDM wave. 

I’ve never really heard anything like this. Untitled Art brings us a fast-paced and heavy presence with their powerful, grungy take on EDM with their single “Philly To Long Branch Part 2”, presenting some of the most impressive vocal executions that could be displayed with this type of in-your-face energy. 

It’s melodic, versatile, unforgettable to the ear, and absolutely original. It starts out completely eye-brow raising and continues to get more insatiably dynamic, innovative, loud, and action-movie worthy. 

The vocal ranges and overall mix is one of the best parts that brings out the mastered craft and artistic merit with this single, and it never outdoes itself in any way. The structures continue to stay loud, but melodic. Its formula is very fresh, but you can still hear many of yesterday and today’s musical influences that give this song extremely high likability factors. It’s definitely a song you’ll come back to time and time again, especially if you’re looking to blast something raw and original to your friends or music lovers looking for new food for the ear.

This is a brilliant single, and it definitely entices you to research more into what Untitled Art has available in their past catalogue, and future collectively. Chances are, you won’t be disappointed in the least.

Artist Album Review: C.H.A.D. The Change – “The Red Pill” LP

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Versatile, political, relentless, and emotional, this Hip Hop full-length with R&B elements that combines a diversified chemistry from yesterday and today’s Rap styles is a very memorable collection of tracks that surrounds a theme of economic and social struggles.

Award-Winning Hip Hop Pioneer and Activist C.H.A.D. The Change‘s The Red Pill LP emphasizes on a lot of issues, personal and universal problems that are endured every day by an aghast society, along with production value and versatility that showcases the many powerful messages this album has to offer in the most effective ways possible.

With a handful of elite feature artists making appearances on several tracks to supply some ear-catchy verses, hooks, and everything in between, The Red Pill is definitely a rollercoaster of raw emotions and important messages all put together to bring an overall picture to the forefront. And one of the things I loved about this album is how each track had something different to offer up in its overall execution. It isn’t repetitive, but at the same time doesn’t stray from its path.

“Negative Energy” definitely caught my ear with its hooky chorus, and 90’s influenced beat that showcases this song’s lyrical content beautifully. C.H.A.D.‘s mid-ranged voice has mainstream quality and definitely has that quality in a way that makes you feel that he was destined to Rap. Ontop of his vocal quality, his witty and clever rhyming structures add to his seemingly endless amount of likability factors. And brings with him a signature sound that is true breath of fresh air.

“Change The World” is another song that caught my ear with its charismatic hook and dynamically uplifting vibe. It’s another track that shows many defining factors to C.H.A.D.‘s versatility as well as ability. Especially if you’re a fan of Rappers that can sing some of their own hooks. But overall, this track is an absolute gem and follows the formula this LP ties together.

Best part about The Red Pill is you won’t hear the same thing twice. Each track, though casting light on specific concepts, offers up something new and lovable on every song. To me, this is an album of Anthems. Songs that could stand on their own with a powerful foreground, or blend in with a collection of other Anthems that stir up into a chemistry explosion of something amazing altogether. And that’s what this LP really shines on. The fact that this is an LP that really took its time to make sure every track was on point. That way you won’t have one song to skip over. You’ll love every track The Red Pill has to offer.

Artist Review: Never Yield Business – “Survive The Struggle” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky & Dave Welsh

Intelligently smashing through preconceived notions of what a modern Hip Hop song brings truly comes from the hearts and souls from any Hip Hop unity like N.Y.B. and is very scarce in this day and age. So when we heard this track, it was quite a treat.

This song and artist collectively is definitely to be commended and recognized for the scarcity of what today’s mainstream society lacks the most–compassion in times of need with an exploitation-free environment and being part of the solution to a very big problem.

Hip Hop Pioneers Never Yield Business emphasize on this not only in their clever and witty single “Survive The Struggle”, but as the people themselves–acting on behalf of their musical content and putting the perfect parallels in between who they are when it comes to helping others (in this case, Hurricane Harvey) and the rhythmic flow and driven lyrical messages as well as fantastic production value that conveys a Universal message that is very powerful and cannot be mistaken for anything but authentic and real.

The song’s beat goes perfectly with the story-telling method that’s being utilized in a multifaceted and well thought out way; it shines on the content very effectively, has something that almost everybody can identify with, and has the actual basis of the content being demonstrated for who they are, by helping those survive the struggle.

N.Y.B.‘s wit that transpires throughout the entire song’s execution makes this track very hooky, well assembled, and crafted to its core. We’re very honored to write a review for this song not just for its quality, but for its positivity and encouragement to take action. This is one powerful song that will leave you awaiting what tricks N.Y.B. has up the sleeves. If they were set out to make an impression, “Survive The Struggle” did exactly just that.

Artist Review: Marcus Christ – “Hate On Me” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Straight outta Compton, and a possible extended family member of Jesus himself, Marcus Christ brings forth a witty and smooth track with his single “Hate On Me”.

But regardless of the title, we aren’t gonna hate on him at all. This new-generation Rapper has a very charismatic groove with his dynamic lyrical content and authentic style, with one of the catchiest beats to assist the song’s overall execution.

This single and the album it’s comprised from called Prince of the Universe showcases many defining factors and versatility that Christ brings to the table. It has its twist and turns, traditional production value, and really delivers the content lyrically and musically in a way that sticks with you. It’s the type of catchiness that keeps you coming back.

Marcus Christ has a lot of character behind his rhymes, and also has built an insatiable fan base over the years that’s brought him positive reception and critical acclaim from his growing fan base, scene recognition, and Press collectively. Best of all, he’s an artist that did the legwork necessary to take himself to the next level and new heights — which is rare in this day and age. So I’m more than confident that there will be plenty of future prospects for Christ, especially if he keeps himself active; which seems to be the case.

Marcus Christ is a great role model for Hip Hop altogether in my opinion. Where music is the priority as opposed to publicity stunts, overwhelming amounts of bling, and the pretentious side that the genre often distracts listeners with. You’ll love the authenticity that Christ carries with him as an elite Rapper. He’s worth every minute of your time.
