House | Brick’s “Off The Rack” Tells A House Story Worth Sharing

Posted by on August 29, 2016

I’m not sure if its the low pitched vocals, the in your face basslines, or the squirmy vibrato laced topline, but “Off The Rack” by Bricks is a catchy house track that’s fuses Miami and LA vibes into its own thing.

The Icon Collective graduate with a focus on house music, based in LA, is making his mark with “Off The Rack”. He’s recently partnered with a couple large companies in the music industry, so be on the lookout bigger things. Also, he’s dropping a label release soon as well too. 3rd times a charm – can’t wait to hear what’s next, the last two give a clear picture of what’s to come.

Whenever meeting an artist for the first time, you never know what you’re going to get. You go into with a certain trepidation and understanding that these artists could be a giant twat. It’s often hard to reconcile that idea, because it’s hard to separate the man from the music. So many times you’ll find that your favorite producer or artist makes great music, but isn’t the best person to be around.

First things first, look at the top left corner of the picture for some hot stuff. Do I ever wish I could have been that couch for the night haha.. As a thank you for 150k likes on Facebook, Marcus Schossow has given away a new track titled “Kings Of Summer Nights”. As alluded to by the title, this song is a dedication to the late nights he spent as a teenager growing up in Sweden. The song is quite different from his current stuff and is instead a light progressive tune that is almost trance like at times. This isn’t the type of track you would expect from him but it’s great and we can only hope he makes more like it in the future.

Hip-Hop, Rap | Vonny del Fresco – Noir Designer

Posted by on January 12, 2014

With the sheer volume of new rappers emerging every day, it never ceases to amaze me how small the hip-hop community actually is. The interconnectivity of all us youngins’ once again came around full circle when “Noir Designer” graced my inbox earlier this week. Although I was familiar with Vonny del Fresco, I never had sat down and truly listened to what he had to offer.

The distorted voice and harsh passion he brings with every line, helps del Fresco paint a vivid picture of a woman caught up in the materialistic glitz and glamour. The almost-satanic sounding song is the antithesis of a typical ballad. As del Fresco explains,

“Noir Designer” tells the tale of a night’s encounter with a female living in a materialistic world, feeding off of greed inspired by her surroundings.

A beautiful exterior disguises inner ugliness.

The finer things allow her to feel secure, indulgence in excess–drugs, sex, sparkling nights–helps her cope.

She meets someone who understands her urges–a man who wants nothing more than to use her in exchange for giving her everything she desires.

A powerful message put forward in a strikingly blunt and confrontational manner is all summed up with a thought-provoking question: Is this modern love?
