If you are lusting for the sounds of 80s synth-pop with a twist of 90s R&B, you’ll definitely want to take a venture into the world of Aaron Beri on his latest music release “Connected” from his debut album ‘Avalanche’. Thankfully, music fans no longer have to wait two decades for a mini-series such as the New Edition Story to rekindle their relationship with the sultry sounds that catapulted popular R&B male vocalists into fame long before mumble rap was considered an actual genre (!?). “Connected” is a fabulous blast from the past with a refreshingly modern flavor.

“Connected” becomes an instant favorite due to Aaron’s honey-drenched vocals and the catchy music score. The songwriting is full of emotion, delivers meaningful words and still drives a catchy pop-infused feel with a chorus that is worth repeating. After engaging with the production, it is easy to understand how the track has garnered thousands of plays across the web.

Aaron’s latest release is reminiscent to George Michael’s earlier works, the sounds of 80s pop bands Breathe and PM Dawn to name just a few. Be not mistaken however, Aaron Beri defines his own unique style as he navigates through a myriad of experiences. “Connected” is a must add track to your playlist especially if you happen to find yourself on YouTube searching for throwback R&B videos thinking to yourself, “Man, I wish music still sounded like this.”

Based in Australia, singer and songwriter Aaron Beri is set to debut his album ‘Avalanche’ in Europe. ‘Avalanche’ has been described as a, “soul and R&B soundtrack to Aaron’s childhood” (www.aaronberi.com). Aaron’s distinct style encompasses a wide scope of genres and influences that range from Rock, R&B, and Pop. The songwriter credits his mom for discovering the music that would eventually shape his style.

As a songwriter, Aaron Beri penned all of the songs on his new album which has made it a very personal experience for the artist. Aaron hopes to share his own personal story on ‘Avalanche’. As the title suggests, the project he says, “ are about the cold and destructive side of love”. “Kingdom Falls” another single on the album was produced by Aria nominee Peter Holz and Mastered by William Bowden, a Grammy Award-Winning Mastering Engineer.

A.R.T. LIVE Presents Frederick Your guide to a cool summer street look

0

Often when one thinks of hip hop you think of New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta Chicago, New Orleans, etc. Rarely does Florida come immediately to mind unless mentioned. Though the state does boast several notable rappers such as Rick Ross, Trick Daddy, Trina, Plies, T – Pain, and Dj Khaled to name a few. Often times the Miami party scene over shadows the musical talent that lies in the state. This truth is what inspires South Florida music artists like Frederick. The 24 year-old YG, SUPER affiliated hip hop artist hailing from Fort Lauderdale, Florida is on a mission to break through the spring break, South Beach, and strip club facade that hangs over the Miami music scene.

Frederick got his start later on in his life. He began to take music more seriously when he was 21 years old. This occurred from being around friends who were older than him and that inspired him to express his true self musically. They also pushed Frederick to create his own unique sound. This sound has stuck with him and molded him into the artist he is today.

Though Frederick’s initial start came from outside influencers his motivation for his craft stems from inside. It comes from the idea of introducing a different sound to the city, the amount of fun he has performing music to different crowds and being creative with friends is everything to him. These factors not only drive his motivation but they fuel the creation of his music. It is also the reasoning behind the aspirations he has for himself over the course of his career.

When asked in depth about his ultimate career goals Frederick had this to say, “I have many career goals, but one of them would be to meet Kendrick Lamar! I love him so much! Another career goal is to open the door for other artists from South Florida so that we can prove to other people that we can actually make amazing music as well.” To end the stigmas so often associated with his native music scene could easily be viewed as a daunting task but it’s one Frederick gladly accepts.

Over his career Frederick has had to face several obstacles but with every trouble came a triumph. One of the worst experiences he’s encountered was when he was at a show and a person (who shall remain nameless) told him that his music sucks and that it’ll never make it anywhere. That really got to Frederick for a while. Yet in the same situation came Frederick’s best experience which was performing his music on stage for the first time and looking at the nay-sayer’s shocked reaction once he saw that the people in the crowd fell in love with Frederick’s music. It’s times like these that made the quote “keep on runnin’.” a saying Frederick has come to live by.

Frederick can be followed on Instagram @Fredericktheegreat and on Soundcloud here: https://m.soundcloud.com/fredericktheegreat  Check out some shots of him performing live at A.R.T. LIVE: Soul Night on this post and check out A.R.T. LIVE here.

EsZ ‘Away from Me’: Unleashes Lyrical Assault Beast mode on Download EsZ’s New Street Banger Decimates

Erron's Attic

Given the fact that recording artists and songwriters have a way with words, they often use music to express their own experiences.  Many times songs are nothing more than interpretations of stories and whether factual or fiction, the story may be good or bad, depending on your role in helping to create it. Inspiring isn’t it?

Erron's AtticQuickly approaching global stardom, Hip Hop artist EsZ recently released ‘Away from Me’ an edgy track with a slightly venomous rage. The Brooklyn-based talent whose style is reminiscent to artists such as Kendrick Lamar, introduces fans to a different perspective so get prepared to be inspired or embarrassed (boys), take your pick!

If you are familiar with EsZ’s music, you will immediately recognize his artistic prowess within the first couple of bars, but this mix will either leave you stunned into silence or dodging for cover.  We are introduced to yet another facet of this young, multi-dimensional star on the rise. Peeling back yet another layer, EsZ welcomes fans into a darker realm ever so cordially, or not depending on your disposition.

We’ll just keep it one-hundred and get to the nitty. The track kicks down doors like SWAT on a bad day… a really bad day, as EsZ delivers a fury of fast-paced lyrical blows. ‘Away from Me’ is an unabashed production that speaks volumes to those individuals exasperated with common bullshit imposed upon by #haters and jealous #thirst trap victims.

Responding to the unsolicited confrontation offered up by otherwise insecure men it seems, EsZ clears his chest with some serious expletives. Though you’ll have to put some in work to keep up with this quick-witted emcee, his message rings out with remarkable clarity despite a flurry of F*bombs and and searing insults. And if you are just now dialing in to this tea, you’ll definitely want to take notes. We assume if you are reading this blog you appreciate the value substance and that is exactly what EsZ delivers.

‘Away from Me’ is anything but a subtle reminder that EsZ, also known as Erron is all about his shit, with zero plans of taking it from anyone. Despite the fact that pretty girls and their jealous boyfriends, happen to come with the territory (ahh the life of a hip hop star), EsZ who slays on this track, stays the true to the game and dices it up with a smooth set of chops.

If you are already a fan of EsZ, it should come as no surprise that the young artist is leaving an indelible footprint on music not only in his hometown, but pretty much everywhere. Thank you Internet; You are welcome world! If you are just visiting this site and dig the dope track above, head on down to the links below to get familiar with the artist and his music.

Reigning with Soul: Zhanè Monique Debuts ‘Legacy of an Empress’ EP Southern Soul Meets Trip Hop on Zhanè Monique 'Legacy of an Empress' EP Release

ZhaneMonique

One may be surprised to know that a young artist of today is able to deliver a voice that is reminiscent to the distinct sounds of decades past. With the exception of a few notable performers, music today often seems to lack the substance and talent once experienced with industry pioneers. One young performer from Atlanta, Georgia however, is breaking ground with a fiercely contemporary sound that channels the vibrations of classic soul singers and the modern nuances of a millennial generation. The artist’s name is Zhanè Monique, and she is a young lady whose music seems to be well beyond her years.

We recently got an insider look into the debut EP release by Zhanè Monique titled ‘Legacy of an Empress’. The EP consists of 7 distinct tracks that demonstrate the performer’s diversity as a singer and songwriter. ‘Legacy of an Empress’ conveys itself with regal quality just as the name of the project suggests. As the the EP opens with “Young Teen” a short interlude, it swiftly becomes evident that Zhanè Monique is not your average recording artist nor your average teen. She is a gifted performer destined to leave an indelible mark on the surface of the music landscape.

As Zhanè introduces herself to listeners singing the lyrics, “I’m just a young teen trying to fulfill my dreams” it is clear that the talented artist is on a mission and taking no prisoners. At first glance, Zhanè’s head-turning sound strikes a familiar chord. Fans of Beyonce will gravitate toward Zhanè’s execution of vocals which resound in a similar fashion. She delivers passionate vocals with comparable dexterity and range. There are few artists today, especially in pop that can truly hit a wide range of notes much less sing at all; even fewer female R&B artists are exposed to audiences through the mainstream music, so ‘Legacy of an Empress’ is a refreshing glimpse into a new generation of rising artists.

 

Check out our Insider Look into ‘Legacy of an Empress’ by Zhanè Monique

 

“Highs & Lows” is a flawless production that emerges with an acoustic feel as Zhanè belts out a mellow tune. The track, which morphs into an eclectic-sounding number expresses unique instrumentals against poetic lyrics.

“Drift” is a progressively modern number with a trendy feel. As Zhanè delivers bold lyrics she pays homage to the “ATL”. The track is an infectious production drenched in flavorful instrumental layers and complex elements.

Perhaps one of the most notable tracks on ‘Legacy of an Empress’ is “Lambs Became Lions” , a powerful number that tells a vivid tale. Using fascinating metaphors, Zhanè delivers a moving experience with a salient message.

Zhanè Monique continues her exquisite story-telling on “Legacy”, a slow-tempo track with distorted instrumentals and deep, soulful lyrics. The track, produced by ZM has a darker feel giving way to her purposeful delivery. The performer demonstrates a vast vocal range on the melodic “Hope”, a powerful track that touches the soul and endears the heart. Concluding the EP with an even stronger finish is “She Can Have You (A World in Chains)”, an unconventional production with captivating lyrics and inspiring instrumentals. Zhanè Monique gives an impressive performance throughout ‘Legacy of an Empress’. The EP is a remarkable blend of R&B, soul, electronic, and alternative sounds with a light hip-hop flair.
