New KvreeM Gets Us Through Aperture: Artist of the Week

When every avenue is exhausted, music can be the language of resilience. It is music that unites us in unexpected moments and situations, especially in the events of 2020. KvreeM uses his recent music selection to convey a message to the universe and his followers: “Through it all we can prevail.” May KvreeM’s latest EP release, GAPERTURE, fill the holes that 2020 has undoubtedly left us with.

Starting out with a smooth jazz tune with BE READY, with a chorus introducing you to the South Suburban Chicago artist, “He’s coming back again.” Back after another big release earlier in the month, THE MAINSTREAM TAPE Vol. II. Bridging into his next track LONELY PT. 2 is some commentary regarding black identity. “Being black is being resilient, it’s being the root of pop culture… being black is being original.” The statement is backed up with the obvious, (if you have been paying attention) from music of any genre: Jazz, Rock N Roll with Little Richard, Hip Hop with DJ Kool Herc, and even fashion & culture. In fact being black can be seen as the root of all originality, as we are all born of Africa, as one species migrating and adapting throughout the whole world. This theme of empowering messaging continues with THE WOO BOSCO THEORY.

Getting into more hip hop influenced jazz as the EP continues, CONCRETE JUNGLE highlights KvreeMs uniqueness. “Don’t compare me to the rest I’m incomparable, don’t let them people tune into your frequency,” he raps in chorus with versus outlining the box that this CONCRETE JUNGLE tries to mold us into, tied in with a music video months back. GAPERTURE would be the most energetically boastful of the EP, and the latter actually makes you wanna connect with KvreeM, and match him on a bottle at a party, but you better be matching frequencies! Always time for a celebration of growth, before we get back down to earth with SYMPHONIES and THERAPY. Perhaps the most relatable tracks as KvreeM contemplates his hustle, his struggles and his personal health, environment and growth. All in all, GAPERTURE is a superb project that can either help you heal or just get through the day with some quality music.

Find Your Way With New Brittany Nacole Music: Woman Crush Wednesday

Patiently waiting for new Brittany Nacole tunes, and our ears are finally rewarded with the glorious sound of her voice! Back with a new record after a long hiatus, time has certainly polished her talent like water in nature. Of course an artist works at their own pace, and perfection cannot be rushed! For Brittany does not create music for the moment but timeless sounds to be played repeatedly. Still buzzing in our head is the melodies of her EARF GURL LP, released just 3 years ago, followed up with NOCAINE & RIOT singles, just a year apart from one another, giving you an idea of her musics timelessness.

The energy Brittany emits through her music is quite calming and savory, giving you a sense of comfort and relaxation. Not something to lounge to, but to stroll and dance to confidently in your own energy, influenced by her sound. This still holds true with her new track HAVE YOUR WAY. The chorus itself can take you away on a cloud, “Would you like it, if I let you have your way. Don’t you fight it, baby have your way. Been a while now, since I saw your face. Been a minute, we’ve been on the chase.” This R&B track is instantly timeless, and we can go for another while cruising on this tune happily, but let us hope we hear some more Brittany Nacole sooner rather than later!

Novatore, An Admitted Addict: Monday Majesty

Still an addict even though I don’t sniff coke. In love with rap, I’m buying beats until I’m sick, broke.Novatore hopelessly deep into his art, is literally turning into a portrait in his latest music video for I’M AN ADDICT. Confessing his love for music, specifically hip hop and rap, Novatore expresses his passion over a dramatic hip hop influenced violin progression. The violin adds dramatic effect and a classical renaissance atmosphere, emphasizing passion for the art of music, as strongly as classical artists once were as they studied deeply and transformed music in their time.

With modern and some what flagrant language, Novatore’s unadulterated words expresses in his lyrics what histories greatest musicians expressed with their sounds. “When it comes to this music I’m like a crackhead, I know I’ll rock whether or not I’m making back bread.” The music video itself perfectly illustrates the energy of the renaissance period as Novatore dresses in their historic fashion, in traditional settings like an old dark church and rooms, sitting around candle light, or even inside a portrait with traditional frames, giving the hip hop track a timeless energy. Following up on music video releases of BLOODSPORT, UNDERRATED and an AZTHATIX ANTHEM with MOECYRUS, Novatore is looking to be imbedded in music history!

Young Xav Ending Out The Year With Mania: Artist of the Week

YOUNG XAV is back with a new project for his fans. With the release of MANIA, the Chicago artist announces a new artistic direction to follow up on. Being known on the mic for his hip hop lyricism, YOUNG XAV decides MANIA to be his last project to be completely influenced by rap and hip hop. With that he also announces more new music for the new year, so it should be interesting to find out what his newer style will sound like. Judging from his interview with Greg McDonald, it sounds like he may be leaning towards a favored genre of his, rock music!

MANIA is short and sweet, containing just 3 tracks, one being a freestyle to start off the EP! “If I should die tonight best believe I lived my best one. Thought my last drop was fire, shit, wait til the next one. Everything I touch Murder it, we leave it REDRUM.” In his short 3 year career as an artist YOUNG XAV has so far released a handful of singles and projects, starting with his BESIDE THE DYING FIRE EP, to his debut LP AFTER DARK, followed up by a few loosies. MANIA shows a great growing confidence in XAVs character, a bridge to a more matured sound and expression, not diluting his presentation with the superficial, but acknowledging everything that makes him and what you heard in his debut AFTER DARK. This growing character is even more evident within the first lines of ROLLING STONE, getting us prepared for whats to come, “Addressing myself, all the issues in play. My problems, I pen em’, I stock em. Jay Gatsby by day, but at night I’m Bruce Wayne, The new face of Gotham.”

New Professor Fox Brings Out The Bass Face

A teacher and a producer of music, Professor Fox would undoubtedly have a diverse playlist. From working solo to within the duo Vesper, to producing with big name artists like the late Mac Miller, Curren$y, Ab Soul, and popular Chicago artists Chance the Rapper, Vic Mensa and Sidewalk Chalk to name a few, Professor Fox has more than enough experience to spread knowledge. From his vast network you would assume P. Fox has an inclination toward more hip hop beat work, R&B and the likes, but this man sits in no box! His latest upload onto his soundcloud account hits closer to the dubstep and bass community with dark and nasty bass lines. Named BASS FACE, for the obvious reaction you would get when you hear that low end rumble.

AzMattic Speaks His Mind On The Great Divide

It is no question the social and political atmosphere in America is in question, and tensions between the elite & political classes and the working class is at an all time high. AzMattic expresses his thoughts on the situation laying down some bars on a paced hip hop beat. DIVIDED comes out as a music video, taking place in what looks like a political office and scenes from a news program, as AzMattic takes on the disguise of a career politician with the gray hair, mustache, suit & tie, doing the only thing politicians can do correctly; practicing golf and wasting time. This will be a follow up to his EP Project THE JAZZ CIGARETTE with RhymSter.

A political tune may not the sexiest music idea, but AzMattic lays it down smoothly with cool flow and compassion, remaining as neutral as Switzerland. Following a soundbite of known political crook Richard Nixon, AzMattic says out loud what we are all thinking quietly, “It’s pitiful that they can be this criminal, and we just have to take it like some vacant individuals. This ain’t forgivable, it’s time to make another option, I’m talking starting fresh and eliminating all corruption.” But he also lays out more than just a solution, but a blueprint, “Search your local shop keeper when you seek consumption, if you want to hurt them, then you got to hit their pockets; they wont notice change until they notice that there’s loss of profits.” But until we stand up and take charge and responsibility of America ourselves as individuals, might as well turn up the volume on this AzMattic music video; it is just as much political theater as what you see on your television, but with more knowledge and effectiveness.

Upon his return K3NSWAY releases a music video to JUMP, a remixed track originally by Da Baby to reintroduce himself with dramatic fashion.

Taking place in a natural setting, K3NSWAY walks in enthusiastic, ready to show out his talent. Draped with massive chain links and animal print shorts, sporting his muscles in a visual metaphor, spittin’ his versus as the natural background glows blue in a negative color filter. His most recent release takes on a Rae Sremmurd track, COME GET HER, giving the serenade a street attitude. It would follow up on his remix of Big Sean‘s track I KNOW, and Mulatto‘s beat with Gucci Mane, MUWAP. Each time without diluting the production and actually complimenting the originals.

Simone Is Unapologetic In Her Latest Music Video: Woman Crush Wednesdy

Coming into scene on a rooftop, smokin’, Simone overlooks the city of Chicago, with the sunset at the golden hour in her latest music video, SORRY NOT SORRY. As 2020 comes to a close, the singer, songwriter, dancer and fitness coach can look back at an active year when it comes to music. The video follows up on a her single ENERGI, released in the autumn season, as well as her earlier track BETTER, a 4 track EP titled GO and her 5 track album SET. Moving quick and big with her moves, it was time to get Simone back behind camera for another music video!

The beat starts it off with some foreign chanting sample, looped to a hip hop beat, giving off a rural cultural style in the otherwise very urban city. Makes for a dramatic and authentic vibe into Simone’s entry as she gets to her verses, “Big ego, tight waist, short temper, boss up, pop off, remember.” With a boss attitude, standing elevated above the city, she claims her independence and hustle, “Now I get blessed with the lick. Hear the money callin’ me ring, ring. Fuck a label, now I’m gonna sing, sing.” Thinking smart on her boss shit, because labels take too much and give too little, Simone is heading in the right direction with this quality music and attitude.
