EP Spotlight: Suelo’s “Perception”

Recently, it seems like every new rapper or EDM artist we meet describes themselves similarly. It usually goes something like, “I want to be the next Kanye/Drake/Lamar/Weekend…” This sentiment is then often uncomfortably showcased in their music as a shameless imitation of their heroes. While it is completely natural to become inspired by your industry forerunners, but you must stray away from riding on their coattails by replicating their distinct sound and style. 

This is precisely what Suelo naturally does so well. Upon discovering this artist, we were immediately struck by what may be his strongest asset: his courage to be entirely unapologetic in his assertion of his own unique identity.

Check out “How I Wish I Can Stay”:

The Hip Hop/Rap/EDM genres (especially in recent years with increased accessibility to self-record) can often feel uninspired and frustratingly tired due to the lack of variation, ambition, and innovation applied within the songwriting and production stage. It seems that every week we are introduced to the same regurgitated beat with the same lazy mumble-rap verses and auto-tune saturated hooks—- only to fizzle out into forgetfulness. In fact it’s hard to approach any new music without inherent cynicism and skepticism. It has become tiresome and mundane within the current culture of Pop dominated music. We, as listeners, are exposed to the same formulaic, cookie-cutter, copy of a copy of a copy brand of artists. Although these types of artists have brilliantly perfected the ability to produce safe, catchy, and infectious music; they ultimately amount to being entirely forgettable, soon to be replaced by the next musical doppelgänger. This trend has infected almost every musical appendage and genre, whether it be commercially produced or independently released.

Not only has Suelo recognized the same tired trend in the music industry, but he has made it a point to aggressively rebel against it. One of the first characteristics that we noticed in Suelo’s tracks that immediately set him apart was his willingness to be vulnerable and honest. Too often, rappers feel the need to push a familiar facade (which at this point, has become a parody of itself), or they mistake humbleness for weakness. Suelo does neither, he has embraced his own personal identity and has made no apologies for it. Suelo brilliantly combines his clever lyricism with his passion for making music, resulting in his own unique form and flow.

Suelo really showcases his vocal prowess and displays a strong command of infectious vocal melodies. With the strong and effective backing of guitar, keys, and engaging percussion; this artist proves that his voice is just one of his many strong assets. His vocal performance is authentic and invokes a strong emotional response with the delivery of each relatable line. His songwriting style is remarkable and clever, and each track contains an irresistibly catchy anthem that will be sure to get stuck in your head and have you singing along. Go ahead, try to get “Perception” out of your head, we dare you!

Check out “Perception”: 

Each track on his newest EP “Perception” oozes honesty, musical ambition, and fearless creativity. Not only are they polished and meticulously crafted, but it is sequenced to perfection, leaving the listener wanting more. This artist is definitely a trend-setter and sets an unbelievably high standard for indie Hip Hop/Rap artists hoping to break through in the scene.

Suelo is definitely one of those increasingly rare transcendent artists that doesn’t abide by the typical genre limitations and standards. Regardless of your specific musical tastes, regardless of any bias or animosity that you may have against the hip-hop or EDM genres; the sheer uniqueness and thoughtfulness of Suelo’s “Perception” EP will inspire and ignite applause and appreciation out of even the most reluctant listeners.

Check out “Ghost”: 

Its pretty damn refreshing to hear somebody so incredibly versatile and talented behind the mic (and so brilliantly selective with the production). Shying away from the typical clichés of both of the genres that he borrows inspiration from, Suelo has a remarkably unique style and sound which he maintains throughout his tracks. While Suelo certainly pays homage to the greats; he frequently veers away the genre’s increasingly tired tendencies, making the listening experience feel entirely new and unpredictable.

This is definitely an artist you CAN’T IGNORE!

Artist Spotlight: S. Pro

With independent recording continually growing more affordable and accessible than it ever has been; the industry is quickly becoming over-saturated with hobbyists and crowded with wannabes. Due to this, it is becoming ever-harder to be noticed within the endless sea of independent noise. The number of new hip-hop & RnB artists entering the industry every day is growing exponentially. With this increase in industry competition, you’d think there would be a “standard” for things you shouldn’t do if you’re trying to become noticed and successful. Unfortunately, this is not the case…in fact, it seems that a vast majority of new artists have taken the lazy route — copy those whom are more successful than you.

S. Pro has fiercely rebelled against this current trend; presenting something innovative and unique, yet entirely approachable and digestible.

It is completely natural to become inspired by your industry forerunners, but you must stray away from riding on their coattails by replicating their distinct sound and style. This is precisely what this artist naturally does so well.

This shines radiantly on his newest Single entitled “Slow it Down”.

Single Spotlight: Kristii’s “Break the Rules” (DJ Rebel Remix)

We recently had the pleasure of getting to know the incredibly ambitious and undeniably gifted singer-songwriter, Kristii.

This on-the-rise Austria-based, EDM-Pop sensation has been making waves in the music industry ever since her explosive debut. While the music showcased within Kristii’s growing catalog can be broadly described as “Pop”, there is so much more to it than what you might expect. This brilliant artist not only acts as unique innovator with her songwriting talents; but she also effectively channels her deep, emotive, and resonating vision through an impressive command of the EDM-Pop genre.

Each track featured within her catalog is fantastically sequenced in a way that maintains the listener’s interest, and contains minor mixing and instrumental intricacies that are both unique and add undeniable character to the track. Kristii consistently surprises and impresses with her outstanding vocal ability and displays a strong command of pop vocal melodies. Each vocal performance is authentic and invokes a strong emotional response with her thoughtful and emotive lyrics.

She recently collaborated with DJ Rebel. Check out the incredible track below!

Listen to “Break the Rules (DJ Rebel Remix)”: 

Her tracks differ from most recent Pop releases in that they are fearlessly ambitious and unapologetically unique and difficult to label perfectly. Each track in Kristii‘s growing catalog oozes with integrity, honesty, and emotional awareness. Not only are they polished and meticulously crafted, but they’re sequenced to perfection— leaving the listener wanting more. We can definitely see this artist continuing to climb the ranks and becoming a household name. Not only does she have the ability to craft infectious pop hooks and melodies, but she does so with a remarkably unique blending of genres and evident care for messaging and content.

Artist Spotlight: D. White

It is an unfortunate reality in the current world of music crafted by today’s generation. It seems as if fearless, ambitious artists are becoming more and more rare and undiscovered. This is mostly due to an unapologetic desire by most new-coming artists to shamelessly reach into existing successful markets, void of any integrity, and follow an incredibly safe musical formula of commercially appealing and catchy copy of a copy Mixtapes.

When approaching nearly all newly independent-released music, it’s hard to do so without inherent cynicism and skepticism. It has become tiresome and mundane within the current culture of Pop dominated music. We, as listeners, are continuously exposed to these same formulaic, cookie-cutter, brand of artists. Although these types of artists have brilliantly perfected the ability to produce safe, catchy, and infectious music; they ultimately amount to being entirely forgettable, soon to be replaced by the next musical doppelgänger. This trend has infected almost every musical appendage and genre, whether it be commercially produced or independently released. The most unfortunate result of this trend is the stifling of musical ambition and the lack of innovation to set oneself apart in the industry.

While this approach may work well if your goal as an artist is to make fast cash, albeit becoming forgettable, it certainly isn’t the winning formula for industry longevity and lasting notoriety.

In a refreshing twist, the vicious and wildly ambitious Hip Hop artist/ rapper D.White is fiercely rebelling against this trend and quickly emerging as an indie rap sensation.

Listen for yourself with D.White’s absolute FIRE “Porch Talk” : https://soundcloud.com/dwhite06/sets/porch-talk

D.White is quickly proving that with his addictive and unique style; music, as an artistic medium, can transcend the label of “commodity” and one-dimensional Hip Hop/Rap, becoming something much more cutting and immersive.

With independent recording continually growing more affordable and accessible than it ever has been; the industry is quickly becoming over-saturated with hobbyists and fame-seekers. Due to this, it is becoming ever-harder to be noticed within the endless sea of independent noise. The number of new artists entering the industry every day is growing exponentially. With this increase in industry competition, you’d think there would be a “standard” for things you shouldn’t do if you’re trying to become noticed and successful. Unfortunately, this is not the case…in fact, it seems that a vast majority of new artists have taken the lazy route —- copy those whom are more successful than you. You would think that this competitive environment would inspire some artists to go against the grain and carve out their own identity, but this is too often not the case.

This is precisely what makes this artist such a remarkable and respectable artist.

D.White has developed a sound that feels entirely fresh and new. This brilliant artist not only acts as a unique innovator; but also effectively channels his vision through an impressive command of the Hip Hop/ Rap genre. Avoiding the gimmick he could easily become; D.White stands out among an overpopulated market as a fearless and provocative artist with a story to tell.

The audio production exhibited in his catalog is nothing short of spectacular. This is especially remarkable considering the music itself is ferociously dynamic and unrestrained; we imagine this must have been very challenging to mix. Each layer within the Mixtape is uniquely stunning, with each complex sonic layer given space to breath and evolve. The genre is a brilliant fusion of D. White’s influences, with this artist sculpting his own self-defining soundscape.

D.White is a remarkable artist and is definitely a  breath of fresh air within a tired industry that has become overly saturated with copycat artists whose sole goal is to cash in on an increasingly uninventive formula. D.White is a MUST LISTEN!

Artist Spotlight: Ls Thrillz

With independent recording continually growing more affordable and accessible than it ever has been; the industry is quickly becoming over-saturated with hobbyists and crowded with wannabes. Due to this, it is becoming ever-harder to be noticed within the endless sea of independent noise. The number of new hip-hop artists entering the industry every day is growing exponentially. With this increase in industry competition, you’d think there would be a “standard” for things you shouldn’t do if you’re trying to become noticed and successful. Unfortunately, this is not the case…in fact, it seems that a vast majority of new artists have taken the lazy route — copy those whom are more successful than you.

Ls Thrillz has fiercely rebelled against this current trend; creating something innovative and unique, yet entirely approachable and digestible.

Recently, it seems like every new rapper we meet describes themselves similarly. It usually goes something like, “I want to be the next Kanye/Drake/Lamar…” This sentiment is then often uncomfortably showcased in their music as a shameless imitation of their heroes. Niagara Falls NY artist Ls Thrillz is definitely an exception and is back at it again with the sequel to his Ep “Louder Than Life”. Still heavy on the “slumplife vibe” with smooth melodies mixed with heavy percussion .

It is completely natural to become inspired by your industry forerunners, but you must stray away from riding on their coattails by replicating their distinct sound and style. This is precisely what Ls Thrillz naturally does so well. Upon discovering Ls Thrillz, we were immediately struck by what may be his strongest asset: his courage to be entirely unapologetic in his assertion of his own unique identity. This shines radiantly in his newest album entitled “Louder than Life 2”.

Listen to “Louder than Life 2″ here: 

Not only has Ls Thrillz recognized the same tired trend in the music industry, but he has made it a point to aggressively rebel against it. One of the first characteristics that we noticed in Ls Thrillz’s tracks that immediately set him apart was his willingness to be vulnerable and honest. Too often, rappers feel the need to push a familiar facade (which at this point, has become a parody of itself), or they mistake humbleness for weakness. Ls Thrillz does neither, he has embraced his own personal identity and has made no apologies for it.

This approach to songwriting naturally injects his music with integrity and honesty. His confidence in his own story, as well as his embrace of his own style allows his music to outshine the rest within the genre. His vulnerability in his songwriting makes it much more organic for the listener to connect with his songs on a personal level. These are qualities that are severely lacking within the current industry, and impressively, Ls Thrillz has already figured it out as a relatively new artist on the scene.

Ls Thrillz is definitely one of those increasingly rare transcendent artists that doesn’t abide by the typical genre limitations and standards. Regardless of your specific musical tastes, regardless of any bias or animosity that you may have against the hip-hop or rap genres; the sheer uniqueness and thoughtfulness of Ls Thrillz’s newest Single will inspire and ignite applause and appreciation out of even the most reluctant listeners.

It’s pretty damn refreshing to hear somebody so incredibly versatile and talented behind the mic. Shying away from the typical clichés of both of the genres that he borrows inspiration from, Ls Thrillz has a remarkably unique style and sound which he maintains throughout these early tracks. While Ls Thrillz certainly pays homage to the greats; he frequently veers away the genre’s increasingly tired tendencies, making the listening experience feel entirely new and unpredictable.

This artist will almost certainly be taking the scene by storm!

Artist Spotlight: BABY GEE VIBES

We previously had the pleasure of getting to know this incredibly ambitious artist, and we were beyond impressed (check out our other feature here). To catch you up, BABY GEE VIBES is an on-the-rise and widely revered multi-instrumentalist, producer, and DJ based out of Liverpool, United Kingdom. This artist has been steadily gaining exposure and increased visibility for his incredibly versatile music catalog, and has recently developed an incredibly unique take on the EDM and dark-electronica genres. Showcasing an innovative combination of dark electronica, techno, dance, and trance; this incredible artist has certainly crafted a sound that he can distinctly call his own. It is important to note that BABY GEE VIBES has taken on the undeniable challenge of being a fully independent artist. We find that one of the most glaring setbacks for new-coming independent artists is the lack of professional mixing and mastering that is necessary to break through into the mainstream markets. This certainly isn’t the case with BABY GEE VIBES.

Check this out:

His approach to music is especially refreshing in a world currently dominated by shallow Pop music. We, as listeners, are continuously exposed to these same formulaic, cookie-cutter, brand of artists.

As you dig a little deeper, there is an almost undefinable quality to each track that oozes appeal far outside of the boundaries of the techno genre. This is probably BABY GEE VIBES greatest asset. His remarkable versatility and indisputable skill appeals to the music lover in all of us. Unlike many artists within the genre, BABY GEE VIBES hasn’t limited his appeal to just established techno music fans.

We were so impressed by the creativity and fearlessness showcased within his catalog, that we wanted had to learn more about this stellar artist. BABY GEE VIBES was kind enough to take the time to answer some of our questions.


I love how you manage to render your tracks so personal and immersive. Does the melody come first, or do you focus on the beat the most?

BGV: For me, it is always the beat having the beat just gives me the base for all the other good stuff and then the journey begins

 

 

Do you perform live? If so, do you feel more comfortable on a stage or within the walls of the recording studio?

 BGV: I have performed when I have been with bands and in clubs as a MC. But I do love the studio but if I am honest I love sending the crowd mental lol

 

 

If you could only pick one song to make a “first impression” on a new listener, which song would you pick and why?

BGV: Wow that is really a hard one because I make tracks to send you on a journey of a lifetime I make music for the brain to give you the vibes that you will never find anywhere else my stuff is very toxic or dark and dirty

 

 

What does it take to be “innovative” in music

BGV: You must have a open mind I can listen to opera heavy metal edm but I am just dark and dirty and it comes from the acid and deep bass inside my mentally mixed up brain I don’t live by rules I just make it raw

 

 

Any upcoming release or tour your way?

BGV: You can get your fix every day of dark and dirty techno I work very hard and you can get 2-3 tracks a day every day from my label EDM VIBES MUSIC

 

 

Anywhere online where curious fans can listen to your music and find out more about you?
