Eric Blossman – Corner of My Eye

You can always count on the comforting lyrics and creativity of singer-songwriter Eric Blossman to help you through the good and bad moments in life, or to simply brighten up your day!

“From The Corner Of My eye” is another brilliant release from the thoughtful composer whose work is of the highest caliber and never disappointing. An emotional delivery tells a tale of broken nostalgia and a deep rooted longing to reconnect with people who once made a difference, but are no longer currently around us for whichever reason.

“From The Corner Of My Eye” once again highlights Eric Blossman’s trademark soulful country arrangements which always seem be tailor-made for his deliveries. The songwriting is also as powerful and meaningful as ever, with lyrics such as “Pictures on the wall keep reminding me of the games we used to play / Good times never last forever you see, they just seem to fade away” – painting a vivid picture of elusive memories, regret and sorrow. At least that’s what we got from it…

But if you are worried that “From The Corner Of My Eye” is going to put you in a sad mood, then you better think twice as Eric’s voice is a soothing tool. The song kind of makes me feel grateful for what I got now, and is also quite pleasing to the ear. Warm, loving tones and bright melodies cast a ray of light and hope to counter From The Corner Of My Eye’s piercing lyrics!

No doubt you will enjoy it too, give it a listen below.

 

 

 

NACH – Zambia

It’s been a while since a house release has got us as excited as DJ/Producer NACH’s latest release “Zambia”, which will be out on the 16th of May via Fardown Records!

Get ready to move and groove with a bassline as smooth as butter, supported by stylish, uncompromising percussion, classic piano keys, African vocals and so much more as NACH blends fundamental house vibes with a tribal touch, giving Zambia a timeless, distinct and classic feel.

Having produced music for 5 years now, NACH has already accomplished what so many struggle to achieve. With a string of releases on both local and international labels, with the best result being a number 33 placing on Beatport minimal/deeptech charts – The skilled beatsmith is repping Oz (or Australia for those who don’t know what that is) the propper way.

A warm, layered soundscape, with plenty of upbeat energy sets the pace in this brilliant piece and we absolutely love everything about it, specially the drop at 5m13s when NACH’s “Zambia” hits you with every single key, phase, kick, snare, hi-hat he’s got, elevating the song to the highest place – Culminating in a soul-pleasing eargasm straight to your dome!

This is that good shit. Watch out for NACH’s live performances around Sydney, as the producer is hot right now and geared up for success. His work has already landed him a guest appearancee on Bondi Beach Radio plus a Sydney’s Return to Rio Festival and more. Having also supported the likes of Carl Cox, Eric Powell, Super Flu and many more, you just know NACH is legit. Get with it!

 

One World Government – Souls For Robots

Phoenix trailblazing band One World Government has just released an unbelievable video for their stand out single “Souls For Robots”, off their “Self Titled” album!

The ultra meaningful video starts with a man stepping off his vehicle to raise a construction/propaganda sign on behalf of what seems to be a mind-control corporation, as he then drives off. It then unfolds with eye-opening truths and plays with the idea that we are all dependent on technology, seemingly living a virtual, empty life.

A daughter who lost her father, is depicted feeling insecure and researching how to “plastically” enhance her features, while looking for love, as her dad’s ghost looks on and tries to stop her doing it. As she fails to capture the superficial love she seeks, she then resorts to self harming, since she realises she’s quickly loosing grip. There’s other characters and intertwining stories in this impressive video, which ultimately ends with a guy collapsing on the floor, with people around him walking past, hooked to their gadgets, completely unbothered, as if they’d lost their already fragile humanity, to a life dictated by technology and virtual reality… We don’t want to reveal the whole plot and spoil it for you, as the video goes much, much deeper, but if you haven’t yet watched it, then you definitely need to!

What I like the most about “Souls For Robots”, is that it is a brutal yet subtle attack, on where humanity is heading and how we now live pretty much like robots, hence the single’s title.

Having been compared to Pink Floyd and Rush, One Word Government is carrying the torch for what was previously started by their peers. The song and video have an extremely important meaning which is getting more relevant by the day. If there’s also a main message which applies to anyone who is watching, it has be: ‘be kind to each other out there guys’… and put your damn phones away!

 

TAOG – Young & Living ft Caitey Riley

We all love it when a good plan comes together, right? It seems that Miami based, up and coming rapper TAOG knows exactly how to get what he wants and he’s waisting no time going on about it.

His latest release titled “Young & Living” enlists the help of the sultry Caitey Riley and the production genius of Hustle Beats, whom together, combined to create a dynamic, exciting and uplifting hit song which is quickly raking up the play count numbers online.

While the beat is pop/urban oriented with some great sub bass kicks aimed straight at your dome, TAOG lyrics and flow give it purpose and integrity, while Caity blesses it with her silky and bubbly vocals.

When it comes to putting in the work, we believe the rapper is on the path of success, having already bagged a hit song titled “Bitch I’m On The Phone” ft J.R. Donato of Taylor Gang and more recently having opened for OG Maco’s performance in Margate, Florida. His music is somewhat reminiscent of rappers such as Wiz Khalifa and A.$.A.P Rocky vocal wise but make no mistake, TAOG has his own vibe going on.

A song for those who thrive, it is an overall catchy, vibrant and bold release: “We living life the way we want, oh yeah we going strong” the rapper boasts proudly.

… Let that be the new motto, after all life is for the living!

 

General Crush – Beautiful Day

The most potent tonic for the soul is and will always be music. Just ask Boston based singer-songwriter and music producer General Crush, or better yet, listen to his latest release “Beautiful Day” and tell me otherwise?

In case you’re not familiar with the singer yet, then you should get to know. Drawing influences from artists such as The XX, Glass Animals and my favourite Jose Gonzalez, Ray Ward a.k.a. General Crush has been involved in numerous projects playing anything from roots reggae to hard rock but with his latest drop “Beautiful Day” the artist shows that there’s an evolution taking place in his music.

A song which reflects introspection and transformation, it is brilliantly mellow but still edgy enough to keep the listener curious and engaged. Perhaps, the perfect escape even… as its gentle guitar strokes, lush ethereal vocals and breakbeat like drums  allow for a dreamy mindset to settle in.

Overall “Beautiful Day” is a smooth, comforting and inspiring release from General Crush which will fit nicely in your favourite chill-out and alt-pop playslists.

Give it a listen below!
