Daddy Abe releases debut LP ‘From Alpha to Omega’

The rapper and producer of hip hop known as Daddy Abe has released his debut LP album, “From Alpha to Omega.” The album comprises 15 original songs for an approximate total listening time of one hour, making for a comprehensive introduction to this powerful and popular rap artist on a mission. It has been proudly published on the Raised Records independent record label without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Booming, grooving, and spirit-filled from its core to its overflowing brim, “From Alpha to Omega” is easily one of the best hip-hop records to ever be released with a gospel message.

Daddy Abe cites as main artistic influences Mos Def, Black Twang, Jurassic 5, Klashnekoff, Phi Life Cypher, Talib Kweli, and Damian Marley. His sound and style lean heavily on razor-sharp rhymes and lines, but benefit much from bass-heavy beats and loops which recall the old-school rap artists but also blaze new trails in significant ways. “From Alpha to Omega” by Daddy Abe blends hip hop, rap, dub, reggae, dancehall and gospel music so seamlessly that it’s suddenly surprising a record like this has never been made before.

Also notable are the other talents featured on Daddy Abe’s “From Alpha…” record. These include St. Matthew (of Jamaica) Simon Dan (Nucleus Roots Crew) Testament AKA Homecut, Jonny Alpha (Knew Jeru’slum) Khazown and Saint (of RepEntertainment) Danny Gough, and turntables by DJ Leach.

Asked to comment on the themes of his new record, Daddy Abe writes that “God’s love is unconditional. Everybody has an opportunity to walk in the blessing. It’s not based on your ability or how good you are. Righteousness is a gift. Miracles are for today. Heaven can be here and now. Religion is dead. Jesus is alive!”

Daddy Abe is a UK rapper based in Leeds. He has been an active performer since the turn of the millennium. Select singles from his “From Alpha to Omega” debut record have been played on BBC Radio and by DJ Disorder on Suspect Packages Radio.

“From Alpha to Omega” by Daddy Abe is available online worldwide. Get in early. Very early.

Sund’ri Feeling release new LP ‘Accords’

The duo of poetic jazz and groove music known as Sund’ri Feeling have released their latest LP record, “Accords.” It contains 14 original tracks for a total listening time approaching a full hour. The album has been proudly published on the Artiste de Ma Vie independent record label, entirely without financial or managerial support from the corporate music industry. Suave, classy, and full of the spirit of cool jazz, “Accords” by Sund’ri Feeling is an uplifting and exotic jazz record that will appeal to audiophiles everywhere.

Sund’ri Feeling cite as main artistic influences Ella Fitzgerald, Rachel Ferrell, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Billie Holiday, Marilyn Monroe, and more, from whom their own elegant singing style has taken its powerful yet delicate shape. Hence, a great many qualities are shared between these leading ladies and the vocals of “Accords.”

In terms of composition and instrumentation, they name a broadly various group which includes (among a great many others) Chopin and Rachmaninov, Miles Davis and Jaco Pastorius, Chucho Valdés and Chick Corea. Their music is a flowing, colorful blend of cool jazz, Cuban jazz and Brazilian jazz with subtle flourishes which recall the Paris of the 1940s and ’50s.

Speaking of the themes of their new album, Sund’ri Feeling write, “’Accords’ is about Love, our love for life, traveling, heart-full experiences and the transcendence of everyday feelings. It is an anthem to beauty, peace and freedom. 
Melodies full of lyricism, rich harmonies, dancing rhythms, improvisation and poetic lyrics serve our vision.”

Sund’ri Feeling is a duo consisting of singer Cendrine Cingala and multi-instrumentalist Richard Layan. Hailing from the French-speaking isle of Réunion, 680 km southeast of the African island of Madagascar, these music makers bring their joie de vivre into focus with danceable, highly textured jazz that begs for the lights to be turned low.

Cendrine Cingala began singing before she could walk. Sund’ri Feeling explain that she learned to do it while sitting on the bar in her father’s club.

“All sorts of funky, groove, ethnic and dance music styles nurtured her imagination as she started dreaming of singing and dancing one day,” they write. “One of her sweetest childhood memories is of singing and improvising on various music styles, with her Dad playing the guitar. Her dream to sing has come true, and it’s only the beginning!”

Richard Layan had a more traditional background, being classically schooled at music theory and piano from the age of four to 19. Having picked up guitar along the way at 11, he quickly found interest in jazz and improvisational music.

“Classical music and jazz were the music styles my family used to listen every day,” Layan writes. “I was that lucky boy! I played (and continue playing) many instruments (strings, horns and percussion) in many styles, like rock, pop, country, bluegrass, reggae, jazz fusion, jazz, música popular brasileira, música cubana, Indian Ocean music, creole music …”

Layan has been educated in music at the master level in France, Brazil, Cuba, and Reunion island with several well-known artists and improvisers.

“I had the chance to live in Brazil for a couple of years,” Layan writes, “and learned a lot about music there. Now I live on Reunion Island, where the local music is in strong expansion, mixing traditional rhythms and instruments with external influences from the whole world, and I’m proud to be a part of it!”

Opinash releases new single ‘Basic Instinct’

The digital music artist known as Opinash has released his new single track, “Basic Instinct.” The single has been published as an independent release outside the sphere of control of the corporate music industry. It is the latest part of a series of singles from the artist which have appeared in 2014, including such popular tracks as “Liquid,” “Shine,” “People Having,” and “Over the Horizon.” Glossy, melodic and elegant, pulsing, booming and energizing, “Basic Instinct” by Opinash is a digital anthem for fans of every music genre.

Opinash cites as main artistic influences such icons and legends of electronica as Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode, Jean Michel Jarre, AWeX, Tom Wax, Jeff Mills, and Laid Back. While inspirations such as these do point to certain attributes of an artist in general, these musicians mean much more to Opinash’s music in particular. His undertones have much in common with Depeche Mode, while his mode of music writing brings together the uplifting, colorful melodies of Kraftwerk and the epic, wordless narratives of Jean Michel Jarre. The result is a refreshingly unique amalgam that demands dancing and effectively works also as music for the casual listener.

Opinash, who was born and raised in Denmark, has been writing and producing music since the 1980s. He cut his teeth in the world of digital music on the popular FastTracker program for composing songs,

which is largely responsible for the rise of Europe’s demoscene and helped to shape the future of electronica and house music around the world. Opinash’s first globally distributed independent single, “Rhea,” was released in May of 2012. The entire library of his work since that time is available for sampling from his official site (link provided below) and for purchase at iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, and everywhere else great music is sold.

“Basic Instinct” by Opinash is available now.

Soundwave releases new single ‘9 Lives’

The singer and songwriter of contemporary rhythm ‘n’ blues known as Soundwave has released his latest single track, “9 Lives.” The song has been proudly published on the Emmaculate Entertainment independent music label without interference or financial support from the corporate music industry. Slick, smooth, and endlessly stylish, “9 Lives” stands as proof that Soundwave has a niche carved out for him in today’s thriving R-‘n’-B underground music scene.

Soundwave cites as main artistic influences such staple legends of the genre as Michael Jackson, Boyz II Men, Usher, and K-Ci and JoJo. Outside the R-‘n’-B category, he makes mention of Common, the Roots, Flyleaf, Childish Gambino, Blackstar, Switchfoot, and Linkin Park.

From this varied list of favorites, Soundwave’s music is most similar to the songwriting of Boyz II Men and K-Ci and JoJo, yet still his own style and tone are too fresh and new for such comparisons to be significant. His vocals on ‘9 Lives’ are the main attraction, though clever lyrics and an unstoppably classy keyboard accompaniment round out the song’s mood, the entire track being founded on a heart-thumping back beat which provides deep and satisfying groove.

Speaking of his start in music, Soundwave writes, “Growing up, church was every Sunday and Wednesday night for me. I was naturally drawn to the choir. It was to hard to sit and watch. In high school I was in choir, and after graduation everything changed when I was introduced to music by Blackstar. My friends and I really got into beats and the culture. I’ve been lost in hip-hop ever since and don’t plan on finding a way out anytime soon.”

Soundwave’s aforementioned lyrical prowess means that his songs are infused with urban poetry. Each line is deliberate and finely crafted.

Asked to comment on the themes explored in “9 Lives,” Soundwave writes, “Mostly I want people to understand who I am and where I’ve been. This song and the others on the EP ‘Exist 60′ deal with separation from love, finding the strength to move on, and also embracing your past.”

“9 Lives” by Soundwave is available online worldwide.

Rapper La ‘ Vega releases new album ‘Best of La ‘ Vega (2014)’

The rapper and songwriter known as La ‘ Vega has released her latest official album, “Best of La ‘ Vega (2014).” The album contains seven original La ‘ Vega songs for an approximate total listening time of 25 minutes, making for a comprehensive introduction to this rising star of the hip-hop underground for those not yet acquainted with her uniquely powerful style and sound. It has been released on the MVB Entertainment Music Group LLC independent record label. Prefaced by single releases earlier this season such as “Tipsy” and “Nappy,” her “Best of La ‘ Vega (2014)” album is sure to become the definitive La ‘ Vega record for fans old and new alike.

La ‘ Vega has listed as her main artistic inspirations Nicki Minaj, Nitti Scott, MC, Lil’ Kim and Foxy Brown, all of whom hail from New York City. But the rapper’s own style is grittier and closer to the heart of hip hop than any of the above with the possible exception of Lil’ Kim, with whose urban poetry La ‘ Vega’s lines and rhymes share an East-Coast edge that’s sharper than that of Minaj, Scott, or even Brown.

Commenting on her new album, La ‘ Vega writes, “This is my second ‘Best of’ compilation mixtape. It’s a collection of my most popular songs from 2014, the most purchased, streamed, and blogged about songs that were released in 2014. Because it’s a compilation, this mixtape has a variety of songs and vibes to it.”

La ‘ Vega’s first such comp appeared in March of 2014, titled, “I’m Here.” That record was also published under the MVBEMG label and is still available online containing nine songs from her best material of 2013. Yet as popular and successful as that first album has proven, tracks from her new EP such as “They Ain’t Like Me,” “Pray for Me” and “Wake the Neighbors Up” are certain to grip a whole new wave of avid fans for this Dominican diva from the Bronx.

“Best of La ‘ Vega (2014)” is available for listening and download online worldwide.

Lelectrolab releases new LP ‘World Disclosure’

The artist of electronica music known as Lelectrolab has released his latest and definitive full-length album, “World Exposure.” The record comprises no fewer than 13 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of one full hour. It has been released on the Qualia Records independent music label without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Lush, full, and bursting with bass and imaginative melodies, “World Exposure” by Lelectrolab is not named for the artist’s global distribution, but for the universal effect his music is sure to have on music fans everywhere.

Lelectrolab cites as main artistic influences M83, Kavinsky, Deadmau5, and Daft Punk. His own instrumental sounds are danceable in the extreme, but also highly textured for an intriguing casual listen. Absolutely more than mere “EDM,” Lelectrolab’s “World Exposure” tilts more toward what might be termed the classical music of the future.

“Music is an emotion,” the artist writes of his inspirations. He states that his music aims to describe a “sci-fi universe located between the power of electro- and the sweetness of harmonics.”

His new LP album, “World Exposure” has elsewhere been called “an ingenious blend of electro- influence and feelings. The lightness and the brutality of his noise create a unique harmony.”

The official bio of Lelectrolab reveals it to be a musical project created by Harold Kinet, member of
Discoclashers. “His productions reflect well his state of mind,” the bio reads. His debut EP, “Discocraft,” was published in 2009 on the 03Records label out of Belgium, with whom he has published a series of other titles. More material from the artist appears on the Konectick Digital label of Lille, France. Lelectrolab’s “Tasty Sugar” single from the “Analogy” EP received widespread acclaim and is expected to ship on compilations in short time. Kinet has performed live at Vecteur, Rockrill, Verdur Rock, Belvédère, Lido of Spa, and the Vibration Festival.

Lelectrolab describes himself as a DJ, a producer and an ambitious man who needs to share music. His official bio states that his first goal is to enjoy the scene by entertaining the crowd.

“Music gives feelings and has to be breathtaking,” he writes.

“World Disclosure” by Lelectrolab is available online worldwide. Get in early.

Ryveela releases new single ‘Ghetto Prayer’

The singer and songwriter of reggae music known as Ryveela has released his latest single track, “Ghetto Prayer.” The track has been released on the Reggae Fever Innovations independent record label with neither the participation nor support of the corporate music power structure. Loaded with soul, spirit, and the genuine tones of the roots reggae tradition, “Ghetto Prayer” by Ryveela is warm and healing music for all the people of the world.

Ryveela cites as main artistic influences such legends of the reggae sound as Sizzla, Capleton, Bob Marley and Luciano. Ryveela’s own sound and style are somewhere between all of these, having a cutting-edge feel and an old-school groove and vibe which runs throughout and makes it move. This dichotomy makes sense, too, coming as it does from a singer from Point Hill, St. Catherine just north of Spanish Town in Jamaica.

But sound is only part of his art. A large portion of “Ghetto Prayer,” like all music from Ryveela, is in the theme and message. His official bio reads, “Cognizant of the many talents already out there, Ryveela is making his mark by deliverance of his own style of conscious energies mixed with social commentaries. His main aim is to make listeners sit up and take notice. Ryveela wants to reach to as many people as possible.”

Fame is not the star’s main focus, either. Rather, he wants to effect positive change in the world around him.

“By challenging myself to find topics that are reality-based and singing them to my target audience, topics that aren’t cliché, people will find my music inspirational,” writes Ryveela of his music.

Ryveela released his debut song, “Care No More” while previously signed to a Jamaican label. He writes music to help and mend, raise and support humanity at large.

“I am a conscious reggae artiste,” he writes, “who only promotes Love and respect to my fans. My songs have messages of upliftment and words of wisdom promoting hope to get out of our everyday struggles.”

Inspired by the voices of dancehall and reggae who came before, Ryveela is ready to take up his place among those who bring happiness through music everywhere. He writes of this, “Marley served as a voice in his time; music is meant for healing and good vibes. That’s my mission, that’s what I’m about.”

“Ghetto Prayer” by Ryveela is available online worldwide. Reggae fans should get in early.
