House | black a.m. Pays Tribute To Late House Legend Frankie Knuckles In ‘T.S.O.F.H’

Posted by on March 27, 2021

Frankie Knuckles is a legend among legends in the global phenomenon of dance music, house music especially. With house having roots in the UK and Europe, much of the genre’s story in the USA can be contributed to this pioneer and his dedication to the genre in the city of Chicago. The ripple effect the movement he started states-based decades earlier permeates cross-culturally and world-wide today – from just this man’s efforts alone.

In March 2021, black a.m. pays homage to the late musician with a captivating single that nails the tribute theme embraced here with sophistication and original quality. Within “T.S.O.F.H. (The Story of Frankie’s House),” a squeaky clean house production platforms an unique audio sample from a Frankie Knuckles interview. Of course, this isn’t the first time audio samples capturing dialog from movies/documentaries/interviews have been blended into dance songs. With that said, “T.S.O.F.H.,” warms the soul and easily stands out given the unique cultural implementation built into it.

At the core, black a.m.’s new single highlights an interview Knuckles did where he shares his viewpoint about how house received it’s name and dabbles in an origin story related to the genre. The mix of the inviting cadence of Frankie Knuckles’ voice layered with a complete 128 beat, that he had a role of platforming, stirs emotions in the heart hard to explain.

black a.m. continues to hit many high-points in his prosperous career, “T.S.O.F.H. (The Story of Frankie’s House),” being the next extension.

Deep House | NICOLAS Makes EP Debut With Self Released ‘Forget To Feel’

Posted by on March 23, 2021

“DANCING IN THE MOONLIGHT,” and “TEST DRIVE,” being personal highlights that have won over this writer and many others, now there is more to love with, FORGET TO FEEL EP, and the extra music that came out with it. The starting single, “FORGET TO FEEL,” gets the end-listener used to the expectations that come with the journey. Dotted, syncopated synth-notes covers the entire EP as the chill-nature of the 7-track can put you in an eased position. The two new works and the rest of the EP, for that matter, move the motions forward with the essences showcased on previous singles. “OBSESSION,” is a bit more mysterious-leaning, while “SILENCE,” has a sort of personal ‘ending’ feel to it.

FORGET TO FEEL’ is my first EP, the first body of work that I ever put out. I’ve been in the process of writing it for more than a year now, it’s inspired by my whole journey as a human being as well as the world of constant change that we live in. I see it as a collection of memories, of moments that I felt like I needed to share with the world. Hopefully listeners will relate to it and perhaps it can even become the soundtrack for a moment of your life.

Born into Gen Z, male, musically skilled, but not too much known about him beyond that, NICOLAS maintains a large amount of mystery about who he is, leaving the only natural category left to focus on when checking him out – the music.
