Explore the World with DJ & Producer Glender’s Newest Album “Lost in My Musical Memories”

Glender-Lost in My Musical MemoriesConnecting the world…

House music is probably one of the most instrumental styles by which an artist is able to constantly innovate new sounds, and sub-genres. The music not only possesses the ability to electrify a dance party but it offers an international appeal that may be considered second to none. It is truly a universal style, that when mastered, delivers an unprecedented amount of cultural relevance in music. Dance music is driven most often not by the lyrics or words, but by the conscious expression of energy and emotion through sound. This type of music requires a deeper examination into the style, initiating dialog and provoking thought. While many dance music composers and producers narrow their scope to one particular sound, there are few that expand their reach far beyond continental lines to create noteworthy and inspiring music.

The track maintains a steadily high energy beat, later presenting soulful female vocals and wind instruments. “La Vida” , another exuberant track, also utilizes an infectious drum beat incorporated with Spanish male vocals to present a global sound mix while “Latin Side” is a more progressive sounding piece where the clave collides with jazzy piano chords.

Glender displays his diversity as an artist on tracks such as “Zi Zhu Xiao” where he transports listeners to the continent of Asia where the sounds offer a nostalgic ambiance, inspiring not only the audio but visual use of imagination to appreciate the cultural elements of the music. Glender works proficiently to blend multiple elements and effects into a remarkably powerful listening experience. Without uncovering all of the many surprises that Glender has in store for fans, we would certify this album as a digital “must have”.

Singer, Songwriter, and Guitarist Nacho Silvestre Debuts Cover of David Guetta’s “Titanium”

Nacho SilvestreWith the emergence of new media, independent artists are now able to touch music fans with a broader reach. The ability of an indie artist to demonstrate their raw talent and share candid moments with their fan base enables them to connect with listeners on a deeper level. There are hundreds, if not thousands of recording artists who have found fame through sharing sites such as YouTube while performing cover songs of popular artists.

While scouring the web for new music; we came across Spanish acoustic singer-songwriter, and guitarist Nacho Silvestre who released a video cover for David Guetta’s “Titanium”. The single is song is included on his EP Union St. (Deluxe Edition), which is a new edition of his 2012 EP release entitled Union St. Through his rendition of the popular song, Nacho delivers a unique upbeat guitar version amplified by striking vocals and visual interpretation. The skilled musician gives fans access to a more folk sounding delivery of the hit; with minimal production and virtually no vocal enhancements. Because Silvestre’s version is unplugged, void of heavy electronic influences, the lyrics are easier to understand and appreciate. He does an excellent job of capturing the essence of a true indie artist with raw, uncut talent. If you don’t take our word for it, see for yourself.

“Impossible Gray” The Latest Single from Singer Songwriter Michael Fitch

Michael Fitch Music The power to create noteworthy music is derived not only from learned skills, but an inclination to understand, create, and translate sound through a myriad of elements. Some artists continue to struggle uphill to nail down their style, to “get it”, while others, often nonconformists, work tirelessly to craft, evolve, and carve their own niche, comfortably stepping outside of already existing boundaries.

Musical Convergence..

Here we have the experimental artist, the creator who commands the attention of those who consume sound as a vital nutrient; we witness the convergence of genres into a striking composition and we crave more. Encounters with this type of artist are infrequent, but when they do occur they leave a lasting impression, and we take notice.

“Impossible Gray” the single from singer-songwriter, and musician Michael Fitch’s acclaimed album Life in Mondegreen is a sublime performance of distinct character. Having already received rave reviews, the song is truly an imaginative conglomeration of instrumental, and vocal elements; reflective of Fitch’s signature sound. “Impossible Gray” is an audacious divergence from the prevalence of pop sounds that so many artists are often associated with.

The song opens up with a symphony introduction and trailing piano chords behind distorted vocals that span with great elasticity; Fitch shifts quickly to more soulful sounding chords later in the song.  The song transitions to a more uptempo sound with melodious lyrics; the background wrapped with orchestra accompaniment and driven by percussive accents. Fitch effectively uses a broad spectrum of instruments to deliver a vibrant musical piece complimented by his strong vocals. The song meanders in and out of the lines of folk while delivering ambient electronic instrumentals, acoustic elements, and rock quality. “Impossible Gray” is a bold composition that speaks to listeners with complexity, inspiring a greater appreciation of what actually goes into developing such an artistic work.

Having grown up in Virginia, and now living in Philadelphia Michael Fitch cites musical influences such as the Allman Brothers Band, and Dickey Betts as well as many others, perhaps too many to name.  The gifted artist describes his style as lyrical, indie rock. He was exposed to music at an early age by his parents and is a self-taught instrumentalist. When asked about his music, Fitch states: “Mostly, I try to make sense of the world around me, while claiming my own space within it”. In addition to his album Life in Mondegreen released in 2013, he has also recorded Aprés La Guerre released in 2011. Check out michaelfitchmusic.com to hear more from his latest album Life in Mondegreen.

“Never Ending” The New Single from Franklin Manor

Franklin Manor Never Ending SingleThe single is “Never Ending” but, he is just beginning…

While it seems that modern popular music has reached a plateau with regards to innovation, leaving a lackluster residue once any novelty has faded, there are however, few artists that are able to develop progressive, cutting-edge music. The ability to utilize select elements from various genres to create a one-of-a-kind sound is exemplary of the evolution that has occurred over the last decades in music; where genres are not defined by hard boundaries and do not often fall into the categories that have been previously recognized.

One such artist that has successfully masaterminded a groundbreaking sound for the next wave of millennium music lovers is singer, composer, and producer Franklin Manor. Keen to the flavor of the new music fan, he enlists the unique components required to appeal to listeners who have outgrown mainstream productions, but are not committed staunchly to embracing a single genre.

Mixing it Up

Last year we were introduced to music remixes such as Florida Georgia Line’s “Cruise” featuring rapper Nelly and who can forget the 2007 release of “Apologize” from One Republic and producer Timbaland?  Both songs utilized a blend of musical elements to create a popular sound that crossed over into different genres while collectively capturing millions of spins in multiple markets.  Franklin Manor’s latest release “Never Ending” is the perfect example of just how original up and coming artists need to be in order to have staying power and gain a captive audience. The song playfully ventures outside the frontier of alternative music while still holding on to some of the genre’s distinctive conventions.

“Never Ending” is an up-tempo track with solid rock vocals while maintaining the instrumental components of an experimental dance composition.  The song fades in with a slow intro and lingering piano chords but quickly builds into a high-energy burst of artistic adventure. Franklin Manor presents rebellious edge that cuts with great depth through the use of progressive guitars, hard drums and some electronic vocal play. He delivers intense energy throughout the breadth of the song but, the single appropriately drifts out into a slow fade brining the listener down from an insanely, untamed ride.

The songwriting in “Never Ending” yields remarkable characteristics to include socially conscious yet, memorable verses and a chant-worthy chorus. To describe Franklin Manor’s songwriting as skillful would certainly not do him any justice. When we talk about the Independent Artist and the alternatives to mainstream music, we are often conditioned to seek the antithesis of pop culture however it takes a gifted songwriter to develop meaningful content and deliver it in such a way that it is widely accepted beyond the underground as Franklin Manor has done.

Based in Los Angeles, California Franklin Manor is scheduled to release his upcoming album Motive; keep an ear to the street and in the meantime, become a Franklin Manor fan on Facebook and get the latest scoop.
