Chill | Harry Nathan Follows Up Award Winning Music Video With Sophomore Single “Timeless Dream”

Posted by on November 7, 2018

Harry Nathan’s “Timeless Dream” follows up a bombastic kick off with his debut single “Rooftops” aligned with an award-winning music video. “Rooftops” introduced us to a sun-kissed yet surprisingly experimental realm where the world as we know it and a neighboring alternate dimension overlap. “Timeless Dream” falls in line with the themes of the original, containing a similar groove previous listeners will recognize. With that said, the entire emotion of the song vastly shifts compared to the first: melancholy piano, dim atmospheres, and a darkly reflective feeling play out giving this release it’s own life. Harry Nathan seems far from lacking in creative talent, expect more content from him soon.

Bass | Kantor Drops Sophomore Multi-Genre Original “Sonic”

Posted by on November 2, 2018

“Sonic” is an aggressively melodic blend of sounds and influences with which Kantor seamlessly fluctuates between trap-inflected future bass and drum and bass. The result is unique, providing a stark contrast that overflows with futuristic energy and dynamic melody. Furthermore, the release’s intricate layering and rhythmic complexity are personified by arpeggiated synths and alluring percussion. With Kantor’s latest having been in development for over a year, listeners will agree that “Sonic” was well worth the wait.

Previously known as 5 & A Dime, Kantor has undergone a massive branding overhaul, promising a dark and moody yet powerful and emotionally-driven sound. Accompanying that sound are live performances on custom-designed DDR pad, exemplifying an personification of ‘neo-retrofuturism.’ Prior to rebranding, Kantor had performed with the likes of Steve Aoki and Kendrick Lamar and was supported by acts such as The Chainsmokers, DJ Snake, Tiesto and many more.

Abstract Hip-Hop, Hip-Hop, Rap | Abhi The Nomad Brings the Slaps On ‘LOCK’

Posted by on November 2, 2018

Austin based artist Abhi The Nomad has had one hell of a year.  From releasing his debut album, “Marbled“, in February, to being granted his visa to stay in the US as a working musician, to taking off on his first headlining North American – American Alien Tour, to most recently releasing a string of stand out singles, Abhi The Nomad seems to really just be getting started.

While, “Marbled“, has already become an instant classic, racking up millions of plays and finding support from top tier tastemakers, Abhi The Nomad seems to have switched gears as of late – bringing things back to basics and releasing straight up bangers as the year winds down.  Today, he has just released his latest single, “LOCK“, featuring Foster Cazz & Schama Noel and it is a head knocking, gritty bomb.

Over a self-produced, grungy, electric guitar laden beat, Abhi and friends go in, spitting vicious bars and letting everyone know that there is no stopping them.  Always known to do things to the beat of his own drum, Abhi The Nomad crafts a hard-hitting slapper that brings an undeniable energy and braggadocios vibe, putting critics in their place once and for all.  With a promise of more singles on the horizon and a growing, rabid fanbase at his heels, I have no doubt that 2019 is going to be a huge year for the nomadic one.  Keep it LOCKed.

Electronic, Pop | Radio Smash Release New Single ‘Come on Home’

Posted by on November 2, 2018

Radio Smash brought their talent to the forefront once again with their new bright and bouncy song, “Come on Home”.  The song has a hard, yet bubbly beat in the introduction, which creates for the perfect dance song, but then slowly softens up towards the end with the introduction of a mellow guitar and laid back beat. The smooth guitars give the track an additive soothing sound, which makes the track different from other songs and showcases Radio Smash’s brilliant musicality with their ability to contrast moods within one song.

Come on Home” further cements Radio Smash as a distinct musical act like no other.  Their level of talent and drive has allowed Radio Smash to turn a passion into a dream and a dream into a brand.
