JBarrera releases official single ‘Seduceme’

The singer and songwriter of Latin reggaeton and hip hop known as JBarrera has released his latest official single, “Seduceme.” The track has been proudly published as an independent release without the direction of the corporate music industry. Mellow, grooving, and coasting on an urban reggaeton beat that will make fans of listeners everywhere, “Seduceme” proves JBarrera can dish fresh jams with the best of them.

JBarrera cites as main artistic influences Kalimba, Daddy Yankee, J Balvin, and Drake. His own sound melds styles from contemporary artists in South, Central and North America, and from the late 20th and 21st centuries. Developing an idea of what JBarrera’s repertoire will sound like will need to wait, however, because “Seduceme” represents only the first glimpse from his upcoming debut LP record.

Also adding to the flavor of “Seduceme” is the exotic locale in which it was recorded and produced. JBarrera specifically went to Medellin, Colombia for the studio that would give him the sound he wanted. This makes sense, as JBarrera has deep Latin roots.

“I was born on November 5th in Arlington, VA,” he writes, “but was raised in Guatemala for almost 17 years.”

JBarrera has made music in the hip hop, R-n-B and dancehall genres, but that’s not what his “Seduceme” is about.

“My music influence, it’s always been urban reggaeton, hip hop dancehall,” says JBarrera. “Right now I’m releasing ‘Seduceme,’ the single of my first album which is coming soon. Most of the producing was made in Colombia. I hope everybody likes it.”

The Latin singer’s relationship with music is a deeply personal one.

“I love music,” he says, “especially if I can express what I feel through it.”

JBarrera parts with his trademark quote, an uplifting inspirational line he is known to utter every chance he gets.

“Never give up.”

“Seduceme” by JBarrera is available online worldwide soon.

Hip hop artist D’Amor releases new EP album ‘Gabian Ziwo’

The artist and producer of hip hop known as D’Amor has released his latest EP album, “Gabian Ziwo.” The EP contains six original D’Amor hip hop tracks for an approximate total listening time of 25 minutes. It has been proudly published as an independent music release without the direction of the corporate music industry. Seamlessly blending elements of hip hop and R ‘n’ B for a mellow groove and a solid back beat, “Gabian Ziwo” makes a fine introduction to this intriguing artist from Orlando, Florida.

D’Amor cites as main artistic influences John Legend, Tevin Campbell, Jazmine Sullivan, Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey, and Jay-Z. His own style takes the most integral qualities of modern hip hop and dresses them up in a classy, cosmopolitan delivery that will appeal to fans of pop, hip hop, drum and bass and R ‘n’ B alike.

“My album is unique,” writes D’Amor of his new record. “It’s a different type of project than most. It’s called Gabian Ziwo meaning ‘alter-ego’ in Chinese.”

A multifaceted performer onstage and in the studio, D’Amor’s qualities as a writer, singer and rap artist emerge in “Gabian Ziwo” in such a way as to prove his name will circulate in indie music circles in 2018 and beyond.

“Because I can sing and rap, I showcase those two sides in this project while expressing the ups and downs we all go through in a relationship,” D’Amor says. “Sometimes you feel unappreciated, and like the person you’re with doesn’t really love you like they say they do. It’s like an in-and-out affect. One minute they love you, then they act like they don’t. It’s confusing relationships like that I know many can relate to. And I display that on this EP.”

D’Amor hails from the hip-hop homeland of Brooklyn, NY and lives now in Orlando, FL. His debut mixtape, “Somethin 4 Da Summa” currently has circa 16,000 plays on SoundCloud and counting. Several singles from D’Amor are available for sampling and purchase at digital music stores everywhere.

“Gabian Ziwo” by D’Amor is available online worldwide at over 600 quality music retailers now.

Gothtronica artist Viii releases new singles ‘Threadfear’ and ‘Ask Me to Stay’

The producer of goth-toned electronica known as Viii has released his most recent pair of singles, “Threadfear / Ask Me to Stay.” The twin release has been proudly published on the Voodoo Creation Records independent music label without the direction of the corporate music industry. Pensive, brooding and thrumming with dark energy, “Threadfear / Ask Me to Stay” is the newest reason for fans of electronica to take note of this ever-rising artist from New Zealand.

Viii (pronounced Vee) cites as main artistic influences Maynard James Keenan (Tool, A Perfect Circle) Crosses, Banks, Nine Inch Nails, Portishead, Massive Attack, and Prince. His own bleak, yet lush and high-tech style will appeal to fans of these, perhaps particularly where Massive Attack and the Bristol sound are concerned.

In keeping with his ongoing tradition, the B-side of “Threadfear / Ask Me to Stay” is a cover by Etta Bond and Raf Riley with additional lyrics by Viii, himself.

“I wanted to cover one of Etta’s songs because her music has helped me through many difficult times,” writes Viii, “especially with heartbreak. It seemed like a fitting choice for this to accompany Threadfear.”

“Threadfear,” the original half of the release, stands tall amid the rest of Viii’s repertoire, popular and successful though they have been. Viii has described it as “a conversation held in both the past and present.”

“The first verse/chorus speaks about being aware of issues within self when entering a relationship and asking for understanding around them,” Viii writes. “But then the partner preys upon them and leaves behind further issues. The second verse/chorus jumps ahead in time and speaks about how the issues left by the past relationship have caused problems in relationships since the one previously mentioned.”

Both at his home nation of New Zealand and abroad, Viii has a reputation for taking characteristics from his eclectic musical background and creating a broad palette with them to paint interesting and unique sonic imagery.

“Threadfear / Ask Me to Stay” by Viii on Voodoo Creation Records is available from over 600 quality digital music retailers online worldwide now. Get in early, goth-electronica fans.
