Alternative music artist Vaughty releases new single “Warm Inside”

The alternative music artist known as Vaughty has released his newest single track, “Warm Inside.”

The alternative music artist known as Vaughty has released his newest single track, “Warm Inside.” The song features an electrifying synth pop beat and tone that is reminiscent of the early nineties alternative music sound. This original, experimental music movement from the British underground once returned dancing to nightclubs and paved the road for digital music artists for decades to come, and Vaughty’s “Warm Inside” has every excellent quality of those legendary tunes without any of their unfortunate side attributes. The song is passionate without being melodramatic, heavy hitting without being harsh, and sexy without being boringly obvious about it.

Vaughty lists as main artistic influences the likes of Depeche Mode, Vangelis, Vince Clarke, and Gary Numan, all of whom are apparent in “Warm Inside” in one form or another. This is especially true in the case of Depeche Mode, whose dark overtones contrasted so obliquely with the Jon Bon Jovis and Metallicas of 1991. This shadowy, romantic mood is very present in Vaughty’s track, and he plays upon it with just the right balance of verve and groove in his keyboard playing, back beats, and aloof, masculine vocals. Also tempering the edginess of the song is the sweet, unpretentious singing voice of Jenny Palmer, whose natural timbre is nothing like the annoying divas who ruled the house music genre of the day, but rather is soft and elegant, making for a perfect dance hall number that is just as suited for night drives through the city as it is for flashing, thumping discotheques.

In fact, driving and the city are both large inspirations for the track. Vaughty writes of this, “The sound of the song, as well as the up-and-coming Vaughty EP, was inspired by the 2011 movie called “Drive” (starring Ryan Gosling). The music is all about city life, the neon views and the atmosphere of metropolitan night life. It’s about the contrast between the cold, hard city and vulnerable human emotions.” Vaughty’s single isn’t necessarily a celebration of urban living, however, nor is it an homage. “’Warm Inside,’” he explains, “is a song about trying to keep the person you love safe in a dangerous world.”

That living in the city remains insanely dangerous cannot be helped. We don’t have to suffer it without good music, though.

Vaughty’s single “Warm Inside” is available worldwide beginning February 28, 2013.

Electronic Migration Panel releases new LP “Koffie”

The Australian solo music artist known as the Electronic Migration Panel has released his newest LP, titled, “Koffie.”

The Australian solo music artist known as the Electronic Migration Panel has released his newest LP, titled, “Koffie.” The record is a highly experimental, neo-classical work of digital orchestration that far transcends modern terms of musical classification. It is at once an audible scene of an almost palpable, visible environment, and an ambient digital music album that is extremely enjoyable from beginning to end as traditional music listening. This full-length album is preceded by EMP’s debut record, “Quell – Electric,” which was originally released in 2006 and re-issued in 2012.

The overall experience of EMP is impossible to describe appropriately as an objective hearer. The task is almost certainly best accomplished by the Migration Panel itself, thus: “Electronic Migration Panel’s music is a swirling, interconnected universe of electronic themes, noise, and soundscapes. The music is produced on a variety of analogue synthesizers, piano, treated drum machines, electro-acoustics and found sound.”

The Electronic Migration Panel is a self-funded, self-produced and self-realised vessel for the solo projects of Perth-based composer, Wheldon Thornley. Thornley is also known for his work as the keyboard player, ethereal beats programmer and producer from the multimedia collective, Masonik, with whom he has been collaborating for over four years (for more details visit www.masonik.org).

Thornley originally studied classical music, but moved to writing and performing progressive rock in the early 1990s. He lists as main inspirations such genius acts as Aphex Twin, Brian Eno, Harold Budd, Boards of Canada, Can, Future Sound of London, The Orb, Tangerine Dream, Pink Floyd, King Crimson, and Susumu Yokoto. This eclectic blend of electronica, modern rock, techno, and experimental classic rock shows very well how the swirl of sound that is the “Electronic Migration Panel” has come to be, and influences from these various acts (as well as myriad others) are easily discerned therein.

In short, “Koffie” by the Electronic Migration Panel represents the most creative music project to come out of an independent source in perhaps many years, and absolutely deserves all the attention an audiophile would give to such well-deserving projects.

“Koffie” is available online worldwide beginning February 28, 2013.

London virtuoso guitarist Max Dolan releases new EP “Lilac Moonrise”

English singer-songwriter and master guitarist Max Dolan has released his latest EP, titled, “Lilac Moonrise,” on the Isis Music Group label.

English singer-songwriter and master guitarist Max Dolan has released his latest EP, titled, “Lilac Moonrise,” on the Isis Music Group label. The record is comprised of seven original tracks in approximately 22 minutes of listening play. It is the most recent official collection of studio music from Dolan to date, and promises to be the harbinger of many full-length records to come.

“Lilac Moonrise” has an ethereal quality in terms of orchestration and tone that is reminiscent of some of the most fantastic and unique post-modern experimentalists from the late sixties and early seventies, such as Lou Reed’s infamously eclectic band, The Velvet Underground. The sound also utilizes an ambient, spacious atmosphere such as Echo and the Bunnymen were known for, as well as the lesser-known Mission UK. These comparisons do not do justice, however, to the overarching classic rock element of “Lilac…,” which also brings to mind experimental classic-rock bands like Pink Floyd, Yes, and others. The record, in fact, is unique in many ways that resist general categorization.

Dolan was born in 1985 in Jersey, United Kingdom. He is known for a flashy stage performance that is the result of much obvious skill and time spent honing his inherent talent. This can include such classic stage magics as playing behind his head or with his teeth, such performance flair being more than somewhat rare to the stage today. He began his professional career as a session musician for the Jimi Hendrix Experience on the “Experience Sessions” album. His infamous arctic-white, Gibson SG Special Limited guitar he has dubbed, “Penelope, the Gypsy princess.” 2011 saw the beginning of his chemistry-charged collaboration with percussionist Kofi Baker (son of Cream drummer, Ginger Baker).

When asked about the themes of his music, Dolan says only, “What I try and do with my music is to take people somewhere beautiful, in their hearts and in their minds. There isn’t a ‘message’ to it, as such.”

Art for art’s sake is an increasingly precious thing.

“Lilac Moonrise” by Max Dolan is available online worldwide.

Gustavo Guerra releases newest LP album “Nada Era a Favor”

Famous guitarist from Brazil, Gustavo Guerra, has released his debut instrumental LP record, “Nada Era a Favor.”

Famous guitarist from Brazil, Gustavo Guerra, has released his debut instrumental LP record, “Nada Era a Favor” (“Against All Odds”). The record contains eleven original tracks in approximately 50 minutes’ worth of listening. Guerra’s record stands as a stupefying example of what is possible with an electric guitar in terms of both tonal quality and orchestration, proving that while heavy metal musicians have been utilizing the instrument in new ways since the early seventies, it remains possible to play it with the same versatility and sonorousness as a classically played violin.

Gustavo Guerra, who is famous in Brazil for being one of her top 30 guitarists in the nation, is the most standout element of “Nada Era a Favor.” His guitaring is natural, flawless, powerful, elegant, and charged with youthful vivacity and verve. He does not show off, even when his riffs sound impossible, every phrase emitting from his fingers with alacrity and precision that is often stunning to the ear.

Still, the wonderfully surprising characteristic of “Nada…” is in the excellence of the songwriting. The orchestration of the record is absolutely fantastic. The percussion is phenomenal, the bass guitar is remarkable, keyboards are used with a creativity that hasn’t been seen much in decades, and the overall quality of the mixing and engineering can not possibly be better. The record, in short, is likely the best instrumental rock album to be released in many years.

Gustavo Guerra was born in Curitiba, Brazil. He learned to play guitar at the age of seven with his father, Buby Guerra, a professional musician, who also co-wrote the title track “Nada Era a Favor,” as well as “Que Nena Sos Vos.” Gustavo Guerra first gained popularity from his Youtube channel, GGUERRA, which he started in 2006. His music videos have been viewed by over 14 million people.

Asked about the record, Guerra says, “My passion for music gave me the strength to realize this dream, and now I’m very glad to share all those feelings with my fans, friends and listeners.” To his fans he also shares an additional message: “This album was made with lot of passion, tears and sacrifices. Follow your dream, and believe in yourself!”

The LP “Nada Era a Favor” is available online worldwide beginning February 27, 2013.

Chorale Saint Kizito releases LP “Yalimin”

The famed ecclesiastical South African choir, Chorale Saint Kizito de Bingerville, has released its newest collection of psalms of praise, titled, “Yalimin (Conduis moi ô Seigneur).”

The famed ecclesiastical South African choir, Chorale Saint Kizito de Bingerville, has released its newest collection of psalms of praise, titled, “Yalimin (Conduis moi ô Seigneur).” The full-length album is nearly an hour long with 10 tracks, each dedicated to the worship of Jesus and His Holy Mother, the Virgin Mary. Compositions are arranged and written by local music geniuses and devotees to Christ, Mr. Yapo Odo Blaise and Mr. Besse Marc Blanchard.

Coming from the region of Bingerville near the Ivory Coast capitol city of Abidjan, the album has a clear, wonderful, beautiful indigenous flavor that is a mix of South African rhythm, Zouk, and classical music. There is a delightful, natural tone not unlike much that is found in the Carribbean islands, which is understandable since the tone originated in the Ivory Coast. The Chorale Saint Kizito is comprised of 50 boys and girls, mostly students, all of whom love to sing and spend their free time praising their Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It has existed since 1998. “Yalimin” is their third published full-length record.

The Saint Kizito Choir has always been managed and supported by outstanding parishioners of the Saint Augustin Parish of Bingerville, and too many other Christians to properly name here. The Choir is dedicated to evangelize through songs, believing that songs communicate very well God’s message to the heart and soul of humanity.

“Yalimin” by the Chorale Saint Kizito de Bingerville was produced by Mr. Elimon A., a fervent admirer of Saint Kizito Choir. It stands forever as a tribute to his late friend, the aforementioned songwriter and Choir Master, Mr. Yapo Odo Blaise, who wrote most of the songs contained on the album.

Mr. Elimon A. says of the album’s message: “Praise of the Lord Jesus and joy in Jesus. Total obedience to the Lord Jesus for our salvation. Praise also to our Mother, the Virgin Mary.”

This outstanding choral record is available online worldwide.

Voltage Black releases newest EP “We, the Obsolete”

London based digital music artists Voltage Black have released their newest EP, “We, the Obsolete.”


London based digital music artists Voltage Black have released their newest EP, “We, the Obsolete.” The EP is a comprehensive treatment of their first single from their debut album, which is due out in September. The EP contains three iterations of “We, the Obsolete,” beginning with the official, standard release of the single, and followed by the “Ph03nix Remix” and “Singularity Edit.” These versions are each different enough to stand alone as an entirely individual song, and the EP comprises approximately 14 minutes of continual listening time as a result. The music fan would be mistaken to imagine that listening to this Voltage Black EP from start to finish would be like hearing a track on repeat. This is entirely not the case.

Voltage Black is, at its heart, studio musician and composer Ewan Fisher, who when performing live is joined by percussionist James Milton. The tone and general experience of Voltage Black is, in their own words, “unified by an aesthetic of layered psychedelic experimentalism.” To hear the record is to understand their aim in this. The music comes in and out like breeze, and rhythms are alive more than simply background. Fisher’s choice of instrumentation is eclectic, surprising, and genuinely original, rather than simply an attempt at being unique or unorthodox.

They name as inspirations an unlikely grab bag of names and muses. Listing their main influences, Voltage Black writes, “Experimentation, wonky old tape sounds, Warp Records artists, Bjork, ’90s and ’00s post rock, Arthur Russell, Liars….” If this list provides only a vague idea of what music might be produced using these inspirations as a template, it is perhaps because “We, the Obsolete” is the furthest thing from derivative. They throw everything that sounds good into the mix, and don’t spend any time trimming out the excess.

“Maximalism is a force for good,” says Voltage Black.

“We, the Obsolete” is available online everywhere beginning February 25, 2013.

Drogtech releases debut LP “Ordinary Life”

The digital music artist known only as Drogtech has released his debut LP record, “Ordinary Life.”

The Polish digital music artist known only as Drogtech has released his debut LP record, “Ordinary Life.” The album is composed of 12 original tracks having an average of five minutes playing time apiece, making his first full-length album a wonderfully comprehensive one, comprising an entire hour’s worth of top quality listening time. The style of “Ordinary Life” is difficult to describe, but the tone is expansive, atmospheric, and very ambient. Drogtech himself says that he does not feel there is a fitting subgenre to describe the stylistic subgenre of his record.

“There is no specific genre that defines the style,” he writes, “but ‘downtempo’ would be the first thought.” He also mentions that his songs have a purposefully progressive touch, and this is very palpable when listening to the music.

The album is two years in the making, and was not always easy in composition. “’Ordinary Life’ was created during a very emotional and personal period of time,” writes Drogtech. “I had the idea to focus on a more coherent piece of music. I’ve always been a huge fan of artistic albums because they tend to be very personal and emotional, so I decided to make my own.”

As a composer, Drogtech is very inspired. He lists among his most important influences the work of Paul van Dyk, Nick Warren, Sasha, Hybrid, Four Tet, Ulrich Schnauss, and Solarfields. Nevertheless, however, he remains his own biggest inspiration. “Some of the tracks were inspired by movies, others by the music I was listening to,” he writes, “but mostly by my state of mind at the time. There were sad and happy moments which can be reflected in the tracks. The first half of the album is more deep, while the second is optimistic.”

Music fans around the world can hear this for themselves. “Ordinary Life” is available online everywhere beginning February 26, 2013.
