Artist Mike Maro Releases The Weekend Remix A Personal Perspective on a Relatable Experience

Mike Maro

Mike Maro

UK-based hip-hop artist and rapper Mike Maro just released a remix to “The Weekend”, chart-topping smash single from singer and songwriter SZA. The track was the third single released from her debut album ‘Ctrl’ in 2017. The song was wildly popular and even received a Grammy Award Nomination for Best R&B Performance. There is little wonder why Mike Maro decided to select this particular song to remix a la hip-hop, but fans will discover that there is a little more to the story.

It is important to note that “The Weekend” remix is not a debut project for Mike Maro. In fact, the rapper has released previous renditions of popular songs and freestyles via his YouTube channel over the last year. Thus far, each of the artist’s releases have received ample play and countless nods from fans far and wide.

“The Weekend” Remix is set alongside a sultry composition of instrumental layers that are bear a close resemblance to the vibes of neo-soul. The artist, with laid-back energy, spits a flurry of hip-hop bars speaking directly to a female muse. Mike Maro, who has gained recognition for his previous renditions, asserts himself as a legitimate rapper with some seriously dope skills.

While the mood of the remix is subdue, the lyrics are anything but. While Mike does not travel down the same path that SZA does in terms of theme, he does put his own spin on the track and creates his own visuals through his performance. While SZA is speaking to another female about essentially sharing a man on the weekends, Mike discusses a personal relationship with his own partner. The rapper uses a series of salacious metaphors to explain what he plans to do with his lady love.

The artist tells us that, “‘The Weekend’ remix of SZA’s original touches on my personal relationship and how me and my girl almost always broke up on the weekends, but instead made up and resolved it all before things got worse”. We can respect an artist that decides to bare himself to the world. He goes on the say, “I made the song reflect my own life as opposed to the original which was more flirty”. Drawing on an intimate will certainly impact with fans who will find the overall theme of the remix to be very relatable. Check out the video below.

Mike Maro was born and raised in Nigeria but relocated to the UK at the age of 17 in order to undertake a Law degree at the University of Essex. Upon graduation, Mike decided to pursue his dream of being a rapper, something he has desired to achieve since he was a child. The artist is recognized for producing catchy remixes from popular artists.

Though fans have come to love his renditions from notable acts, he has plans to release his own self-produced material with dates to be determined. For now, Mike Maro the law student turned hip-hop artist is working to expand his reach and connect with a broader audience.

Mateo Ahki Selena-An Infectious Hip-Hop Track Underground Vibes Meet Mainstream Smash

Mateo Ahki

Mateo Ahki

Jersey City music artist Mateo Ahki recently released “Selena” a new hip-hop fusion with dark beats and salacious lyrics. The track is highly-infectious as it catches the attention with bang up hook and imaginative bars. Mateo Ahki is a bright artist with a unique flair for the original. Selena which has evolved into a household name and pop-culture staple continues to re-emerge in different forms whether it is to pay homage to the late Tejano singer Selena Quintanilla Perez or the Disney star turned pop sensation Selena Gomez, the name has its own inherent power to evoke a myriad of emotions for music fans.

Judging by his latest release, Mateo Ahki is a formidable emcee who has crafted a signature style that is signed, sealed and delivered specifically for the masses. While “Selena” has a dusty underground vibe, the song is righteously addictive and has mainstream smash hit qualities. The track which is entertaining offers a slight party feel with a distinct street edge. Though Mateo hails from New Jersey, fans who dig the sounds of Southern rap, will enjoy listening to “Selena” which advances at a slower, laid-back tempo.

Mateo spits his bars across the track in a deep tone. The artist maintains a balanced performance in terms of the tone of his voice however, he does show off his personality when he nails some accents at the end of every hook. Mateo has an ear-pleasing rap cadence that conveys the lyrical content of the song effectively. His voice in combination with the instrumentals are expressed in a steady manner, creating a seamless hybridization of sound factors for listeners.

Throughout the track, Mateo demonstrates his skill as a lyricist. During “Selena” he drops some famous names in pop culture outside of Selena such as Venus and Serena, Bruce Wayne and Wonder Woman, Gina, and Aaliyah just to name a few. His metaphors are relevant and his topic of discussion is lighthearted. Fans from across several generational spreads will recognize these references and quickly find the irony in Mateo’s mentions which is affirmatively dope.

In addition to the track release itself, Mateo dropped a music video for “Selena” which is currently streaming on YouTube. The video was released on February 7th and has already locked down over 4,000 views in just a few short days.

The music video for “Selena” is nothing short of pro status. Set against several different backdrops inspired by the city lights and night liffe, “Selena” progresses with Mateo Ahki transitioning through different frames spitting flows solo and among his camp. Visuals of female actress who we presume is symbolic for Selena are woven in between the video’s frames throughout the display. Check out the video for “Selena” below.

Watch Mateo Ahki “Selena”


About “Selena”, Mateo says the song, “takes listeners on an emotional roller coaster as they experience many different creative sides”

The artist is clearly a stunning creative that will shake things up on the music scene. Judging by the time that went into producing his video, Mateo is on another level while the rise to the top gets even more fierce and competitive for independent artists who are now making music on their own terms. With a style that is difficult to match and a sound that is all his own, Mateo Ahki will be a strong force to reckon with. We can’t wait to see what’s next on the menu for this young creative who is seriously serving up some solid rap skills.

Mateo Ahki is hoping to “bring a new sound to the game” as he states. His music is a blend of hip-hop, R&B, alternative music and many other popular styles. Mateo creates what he describes to be “musical masterpieces” while showcasing his wide range as an artist. These elements can be experienced on his most recent track “Selena”. Look for Mateo Ahki’s EP release, coming soon. In the meantime, follow the links below to learn more about the artist and his music.

Dr. C & the Gris Gris Graveyard Dog Ignites the Scene with Southern Rock Fusion Driving Rhythms and Soulful Melodies Collide

Dr. C & the Gris Gris

Dr. C & the Gris Gris

“Graveyard Dog” the latest music release from the band Dr. C & the Gris Gris is making waves from their base camp of Lafayette, Louisiana and reaching a global audiences. The band describes their sound as “incendiary rock music with a southern twist” (Dr. C & the Gris Gris). “Graveyard Dog” is certainly lighting up the scene and the band is giving one memorable performance that sizzles.

The band delivers a full listening experience to include the deep and soulful sounds of southern rock fused with electrifying rock waves. “Graveyard Dog” performs at a moderate tempo with varied degrees of slow and sultry sounds and colliding frequencies of a higher pitch. The song is sonically textured while garnering attention with synergized instrumentals performed by the band. The feeling of of the song conveys a series of emotions that range from frustrated to elated, exhausted and sometimes playful. Dr. C & the Gris Gris deliver enticing energy and almost hypnotic ambiance for listeners. Rock, country and alternative music fans will enjoy listening to “Graveyard Dog”.

Popular music fans will also enjoy listening to “Graveyard Dog” as it follows a similar path of Hozier’s “Take Me To Church” which was heavily rotated in the mainstream between 2013 and 2014. “Graveyard Dog” however, is less dark in terms of the songwriting. The song has a much lighter feel though it does present some very expressive lyrics and stark metaphors.

One of the first verses on the song includes the lyrics, “I long for the days when she petted my face, like a good ol’ boy”. The band makes a correlation between a pet owner and their dog and a man and a woman’s relationship. The dog provides an interesting metaphor and listeners cannot help but to wonder what the subject of the story is feeling. Are they lamenting the loss of a loved one, are they now disillusioned by this relationship or are they continuing to stay loyal despite being treated like a dog? The song suggests the star of the show is willing to be treated like a graveyard dog who refuses to leave his owner’s side or in the case of this stunning portrayal, a lover’s side.

Dr. C & the Gris Gris recently released an Official Music Video for “Graveyard Dog”. The visuals present a clean and crisp look into the song with a bit of dramatic irony. The video is set against the backdrop of an actual graveyard where the band members are playing their instruments while a dog runs about throughout the scene. The music video is simple, yet effective in conveying the overall message and feel of the tune. The video is set to black and white which provides a nice contrast for the lyrics versus the instrumentation.

Dr. C & the Gris Gris is one of the few bands we’ve experienced that captures the essence of rock without fail. While their sound is equally as eclectic as it is electric, they still take listeners down home so to speak, calling on the American spirit. “Graveyard Dog” is a powerful song concisely sums up a range of emotions and experiences using familiar metaphors while still taking the time to entertain listeners. “Graveyard Dog” is a rich experience that delivers on great music, meaningful songwriting and all of the feels.

Dr. C & the Gris GrisDr. C & the Gris Gris call Lafayette, LA home and after listening to their sound their roots can further be understood. The band creates a distinct fusion of rock and roll with “hits of Cajun and swamp rock influence” (Dr. C & the Gris Gris).

The band, which has garnered global recognition stretching outside of Lafayette, is known for giving a phenomenal live show. No strangers to the scene, members of the band have opened up for acts such as Cheap Trick, Fuel, Sevendust and many more.

Dr. C & the Gris Gris have been likened to legendary acts such as The Black Keys, Jimi Hendrix, Guns’N’Roses and Audioslave to just name a few. The band is known for performing ‘monolithic drums, thundering bass and sleazy guitars (Dr. C & the Gris Gris). We love it!

The band’s debut release is “Hexes with Axes”and it is representative of the band’s signature elixir which fuses “memorable hooks, larger-than-life guitar solos, and in-your-face style” (Dr. C & the Gris Gris). The band is not always setting souls on fire as they have been known to slow down the tempo and kick out a mellow ballad or two. Regardless of what tempo the band performs, they are certain to offer plenty of personality for rock lovers who enjoy a great tune.

Nick Lamb

Nick Lamb

Singer, Songwriter and Musician Nick Lamb just released a new song titled “Simple Man”. In a time when materialism seems to reign supreme and relationships seem to be born out of interest, Nick Lamb is singing a completely different tune. The rock performer suggests, “maybe love is all we need”. It sounds like Nick is on to something and we just had to take a listen.

“Simple Man” is an inspiring rock song with a touching message. Fans who have not had the opportunity to listen to the track can expect to hear heartwarming guitar melodies and Nick’s soul-stirring vocals. “Simple Man” is an entertaining performance which will reveal an authentic perspective on love and life.

As Nick Lamb sings, “yeah I’m just a simple man doing the best I can, just trying to make ends meet”, he connects with everyday listeners who happen to come from all walks in life. As we are constantly bombarded with glitzy images, gold-digger types and social climbers on social media and on reality television, it is sometimes hard to stop for a moment and appreciate the simple things in life. Nick Lamb’s “Simple Man” reminds us that love is not all about what someone can do for you or what someone can give to you, but genuine friendship and affection.

The California-based singer and songwriter has penned a fantastic song. In terms of the lyrics on song, Nick delivers heartfelt verses and an infectious chorus. The song makes contemporary references that speak to matters of the heart and the struggles that individuals face in trying to navigate through relationships. Nick keeps it one hundred and lets it be known that, “Now I can’t buy you diamond rings and no fancy clothes you gonna get from me”. Nick is not here to promise the moon and stars but he assures that he is there to be a friend in any time of need.

Not only can we appreciate that Nick Lamb isn’t here for the broken promises and is unapologetically rock and roll with his guitar in tow, but he also showcases his singing prowess on “Simple Man”. The singer gives a soothing vocal performance as he croons his verses which are woven within the song. Nick’s voice is warm and inviting, a calming escape from the often jagged, unpolished and redundant sounds of popular music.

“Simple Man” is aesthetically pleasing with regards to its crafty layers. The song performs like an acoustic ballad, conveying emotion through each chord. Nick delivers a textured auditory experience that is both dynamic and soothing. The vibe of “Simple Man” is relaxed, allowing listeners to focus intently on the lyrical content of the performance.

Nick Lamb’s latest release is an exceptional fusion of soulful rock sounds. Nick gives an incredible performance that will resonate with fans who appreciate uncut music with calming ambiance and a relevant message. “Simple Man” is an original song that embodies the spirit of rock and roll from its earliest days through the present. Nick’s style is unique and the message on his song even more extraordinary. Nick Lamb encourages listeners to appreciate the things in life and love that simply cannot be bought.

Listen to Nick Lamb “Simple Man”

 



 

Nick Lamb MusicAccording to Nick Lamb, “music is the soul’s interpretation of life’s moments”. Hailing from a small coal town in Central PA, Nick was the third son of a musical couple Tom and Lorraine Lamb. Tom, Nick’s father was known about town and recognized as a local celebrity because he played music and performed country on local rock and roll radio stations and at town functions. Nick’s father was recognized for his voice, charm and acoustic guitar, ultimately “bringing down the house” during his performances. WPHB in Philipsburg, PA held an all-day tribute in Tom’s honor when he passed away.

Nick’s mother, Lorraine was a passionate writer who juggled managing the home, raising 5 boys and being a wife to Tom who was affectionately named “the Animal!” (Nick Lamb). Lorraine wrote 3 romances, one contemporary novel using a traditional typewriter and conducting research for her work at the public library. Nick says Lorraine was the “greatest author you’ve never read!” She once told him, “you have the best parts of both your Father and I” (Nick Lamb).

Around the age of 13, Nick received his most prized gift which was a one-speaker cassette deck and two Def Leppard cassette tapes. It was at this time that he started to dream of a career in  music.

Nick’s foray into a music career was inevitable, sealed by fate as he suggests. He is a self-taught musician who not only sings, but plays the guitar, bass and drums. At 29, Nick Lamb earned his Bachelor’s degree in film and video at Penn State University and later went on to get his MFA in creative writing from Wilkes University.

Nick has a variety of influences in creating his signature sound. According to Nick, “there is something special about a guitar accompanying a great rhythm section that awakens his spirit inside” (Nick Lamb).

Though Nick grew up in poverty, it did not stop him from from appreciating some of the best things in life to include family, friends and passion. He was able to see beyond the superficial and now writes music about personal moments in his own life, friendships he has made along the way. To Nick Lamb, music is his religion and he has been described as a master at capturing emotions in life’s moments through storytelling and composition. Though Nick respects all genres of music, he has a special preference for Rock & Roll. Nick says, “life is a storm and music is one of the may forms of shelter we seek” (Nick Lamb). For Nick, music has provided shelter his entire life (Nick Lamb).

AIR _KILOMETERS_BOMB_BAY

AIR _KILOMETERS_BOMB_BAY

Anthony Rodriguez is embarking on a new music journey under the moniker of AIR + KILOMETERS. The undertaking has led the Nevada-based producer to release 1 self-produced track every month for an entire year. While this type of adventure is not for the faint of heart, Rodriguez is no stranger to the scene. For over 10 years the artist has been making music, mostly in the realm of Jazz and Soul. The latest release under AIR + KILOMETERS is a track titled “Bomb Bay”. The production is the first project to released from the year-long endeavor. If “Bomb Bay” is any indication of what is to come, it is going to be one intense year for the accomplished producer. Fans are eagerly awaiting the wild ride as AIR + KILOMETERS has already received some positive press from the pre-release of “Bomb Bay” towards the end of last year.

For electronic music fans, “Bomb Bay” will represent a fresh reinvention of an ever-evolving genre that continues to morph itself into infinity. There are literally millions of DJ and producers creating electronic music at the speed of sound, however, no two DJs and producers are alike though many of the sounds that have gone mainstream are rooted in the core of the genre and its subsequent offshoots. Standing out as a unique artist and having the staying power to be relevant before the next big producer makes waves, remains to be a challenge. “Bomb Bay” makes a bold statement, kicking in doors and appropriately taking names just for good measure.

One of the biggest questions out there in the music sphere is, within this massive sea of electronic music, how can one artist truly stand out? Whatever the secret sauce consists of, AIR + KILOMETERS is mixing up a delicious concoction for the discriminating ear. “Bomb Bay” is an avant garde production that ventures away from the hybridized pop-infused sounds of electronic gone mainstream. Through the mix, AIR + KILOMETERS bulldozes over the status quo, dismantles it and draws a new lane. The final destination is still to be foreseen but for the time being, we’re thinking that this is a solid look for a seasoned producer  who has been courageous enough to trek it out into some new territory.

“Bomb Bay” is purely an instrumental track so there is no lyrical content by which to draw from however, the way that the sonic layers are constructed speaks to audiences loud and clear. AIR + KILOMETERS, through music offers a unique voice. Moreover, the progression of the track appeals to the sensory much in the way that words on a page might convey a poetic message to a reader. The track is highly expressive, sends out distinct energy and elicits feeling.

The track opens up with a some high-pitched synths and speedy sequences and an unmistakable Latin flair of the reggaeton variety. The mix drops a series of heavy, industrialized synths which reverberate continuously throughout the track. As pitchy sirens ring the alarm, the production takes on several different personalities throughout its 3 minutes and 16 seconds of play.

“Bomb Bay” is as electrifying as it is electronic, drawing on the future bass sounds and channeling elements of trip-hop, trance and the high-voltage sounds of dubstep. The track is a fusion of dark beats, frenzied melodies and ambient waves. AIR + KILOMETERS churns out an infectious groove that positions club-friendly waves and thunderous audio experiences side-by-side while moving listeners with dramatic washes and dreamy fades.

Listen to AIR + KILOMETERS “Bomb Bay” on SoundCloud

AIR + KILOMETERS is simply dope. The track holds a powerful grip on electronic music, one that will change the tone and up the ante for DJs and producers alike. While fans anticipate the release of the artist’s next 11 tracks to highlight 2018, they will revel in the fact that AIR + KILOMETERS is bringing experience back into what has become a global phenomenon, not just the latest trend. Can you keep up?

While synthpop continues to influences popular sounds, it is refreshing to get a view into its earliest flavors.

The percussive nature of “Sweet Memories” is punctuated by a friendly dance beat that is no overly powerful. The track puts out just the right frequency to get bodies on the floor without overshadowing the vocal performance delivered on the production.

The synth-driven influence on “Sweet Memories” is strong and this helps to deliver unmistakable appeal to the track. The electronic layers on the track are formed in such a way that they are hypnotic to the listener. The song washes over audiences like a gentle wave, enabling them to focus on the collection of elements to include voice, music and message.

Martin shows off his songwriting skills on the song, giving fans an interesting perspective often forgone on electronic music mixes. He sings, “leaves dancing to the ground, tell me is it fall?”, “the howling wind at night puts me to rest” The lyrics on the song are rather heartfelt and also descriptive as Martin navigates through his thoughts on the production. Overall, the lyrical content of the song is uncomplicated and does not take away from the instrumental facet of the production but rather complements it.

Martin Strecker truly showcases his inclination towards the sounds that fans love. “Sweet Memories” is on the crest of the mainstream while still catering to the underground legion of electronic music lovers. Martin offers fans a subtle groove that is rooted in dance music and one that conveys an experimental style. The track is forward-thinking, delivering future sounds which are likely to eclipse time.
