Transcending time: ‘For The Love of Music’ the new album from recording artist LiJames The Chosen sets the bar

LiJames The ChosenThere are few emcees that are able to transcend time. Those who do prove to be the most influential forces in our culture. A force to be reckoned with today is hip hop artist  LiJames The Chosen who just released his latest project ‘For The Love of Music’. The album is a definitive street symphony that speaks volumes about the current climate of society. The Chosen, a name given by his mother has gifted music fans with a crystal clear visuals and lyrical mastery not seen since the era of artists such as Tupac. ‘For The Love of Music’ is a progressive spin on the underground sound that catapulted hip hop to the mainstream decades ago. Evidence of LiJames’ musical influences and avid study of legendary emcees and musicians permeates throughout each and every track. LiJames The Chosen is redirecting hip hop fans to the long-awaited socially conscious origins of hip hop music.

‘For the Love of Music’ explores a myriad of themes on each of the album tracks. LiJames’ perspective throughout the album is not only genuine but refreshing. Like spoken word, the lyrical content is powerful, poetic, and driven by bona fide experiences that are faced everyday. His delivery radiates a voice of maturity and experience that is not often heard within the sounds of independent recording artists. Trudging through the lyrical battlefield, LiJames covers topics ranging from race relations and class to relationships, incarceration to world issues. In the album, he grapples with some of the toughest issues facing our nation, and does so from a highly relative perspective.

The critically acclaimed album which is already receiving rave reviews, has some really powerful tracks that will resonate with listeners. The track “Looking Out My Window” is gritty track that provides a view into a world that few who are on the outside can truly understand. The fact that an emcee can skillfully share the inner-workings of our culture is a symbol of the excellence that an artist like LiJames lends to the movement.

Another powerful track that will reverberate with fans is “Child Slavery” which exemplifies the depth of LiJames’ observations on world issues. Throughout his tracks, he shines light on the subject matter that is seemingly too politically incorrect to address in our current sphere. He switches up the tone of the album with the track “Life is Beautiful” which is a motivating anthem that inspires and influences a positive thought process. “Chocolate Girl” on the other hand, is a candid track that pays homage to natural sisters of the world, a nice diversion from the heavier content included on the album. The lyrical content on the album is balanced well in combination with the delivery and production.

Production on ‘For The Love of Music’ is among the strongest unleashed this year. There are some tracks that have a nostalgic feel such as “What A Shame” and “Knowledge is Power” while tracks such as “Remember Me” have a more progressive mainstream sound. The album incorporates skits, audio clips, and news footage to emphasize the overall story, working effectively to connect the content with current events and subsequently with the listeners. LiJames delivers phenomenal vocal quality in conjunction with a flawless flow. The album is a diverse collaboration that encompasses the authentic voice of underground hip hop but, conveys with the precision of a mainstream production.

Often compared to artists such as Nas, LiJames The Chosen has already been buzzing in the minds of loyal fans in the Big Apple and across the world, as his latest album has coveted thousands of digital downloads. Having jumpstarted his music life as a young kid listening to ciphers on the block, LiJames The Chosen, influenced by other neighborhood emcees later forged his own path to lyrical greatness. Given the middle name of “The Chosen” by his mother, it became early on that LiJames would find amazing experiences on the horizon. With an inclination for performance, his journey has led him to be one of the most sought after artists of our time.

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.

International DJ and Producer  Glender is one such artist who has successfully garnered worldwide acclaim for his gifted artistry. After eight years, the highly regarded artist has released his most recent album titled ‘Lost in My Musical Memories’, a project that is jam-packed with heart thumping, high energy tracks.

Listeners will truly feel that they have ventured away to parts unknown with each and every single one of Glender’s tracks.

Through each song on ‘Lost in My Musical Memories’, Glender captures the nuances in culture from various walks, in life, places, and faces throughout the album. Opening with the track “South Africa”, Glender welcomes fans with a bouncy drum beat, while incorporating some realistic animal and nature sounds, literally taking listeners into the outdoors. 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”.

Glender’s album is a carefully processed delivery of  artistic ingenuity and cutting edge sounds that work effectively to connect listeners with the sights and sounds of the global landscape. ‘Lost in My Music Memories’ is not just a high-energy dance album, it tells a unique story, sharing with fans a personal journey that is not only physically moving but, thoughtfully inspiring.

“If You Were Mine”, the Latest Song from Singer-Songwriter Darcy Jeavons Soars Up the Charts

Darcy Jeavons

 

A star shines brightly…

When it comes to enlightening music, few stars have the ability to remain a permanent fix, shining their energy and light with brilliant radiance. Ever so often a shooting star in the form of a new artist bolts past, leaving fans just as quickly as he or she arrived, satisfying for only  a short time, the need for positive and encouraging music. All too often these artists are overshadowed by iconic representations of entertainment that are sometimes difficult to embrace,  hard to understand, and in all honestly shallow. Listeners who turn to music in search of deeper meaning gravitate toward the artist whose sound, message, and delivery are luminous; the artist that clearly utilizes music to feed the soul. It is this artist who becomes a mainstay in our listening device; this is the artist that we tell all of our friends about because, they are indeed brilliant.

Meet Darcy Jeavons

Singer-Songwriter Darcy Jeavons is one such star that will be illuminating the music scene for a long time to come. Hailing from Southern California, the artist who received her B.A. in Music from the Cole Conservatory at California State, Long Beach is poised to set the precedence for a new generation of contemporary recording artists and musicians. Her latest single “If You Were Mine” exemplifies Darcy’s longstanding relationship with music, her progression as an artist, and her ability to deliver thought-provoking content to music fans who are longing to find meaningful messages.

With the emotional power of Bette Midler’s “Wind Beneath My Wings”, and the intense vocals of Celine Dion, Darcy Jeavons’ latest song “If You Were Mine” is a powerful expression of faith and love. Her vocal quality conveys beautifully in the track alongside the instrumental accompaniment. The song itself was written as a live acoustic work but later evolved into a fuller sounding production with the assistance of co-producer Steve Lucier, who Jeavons said “added his special touch” to the record. While the musical arrangement leaves a strong impression, it is not overpowering, it is just the right combination of instrumentals to compliment the vocals and deliver a fresh, uplifting sound.

Intertwined with Darcy’s infectious vocals on “If You Were Mine”, is Darcy’s songwriting which meets the caliber of Grammy award-winning artists such as Barbara Streisand and Linda Rondstadt. The lyrics are not only captivating, but they are filled with all of the passion and soul needed to create a musical timepiece, a work of art that goes beyond the boundaries of time. Jeavons’ songwriting is inspiring and most importantly hopeful. “If You Were Mine”, is a breathtaking production that is a must have for adult contemporary and pop music lovers. While this single is just a taste of what Darcy has to offer, she does have an extensive catalog available for your listening pleasure. Listen to “If You Were Mine” now available on SoundCloud.
