Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

If you yearn for the good old days when artists wrote R&B the way it was meant to be, then Jason Biyo is your draft pick, and for very good reasons.

Coming out the gate with the highly anticipated debut single “Numb” from his upcoming album ‘N.U.M.B.’, Jason brings forth a signature sound that gives great callbacks to 90s/early 2000s R&B and Pop sensibilities with a tasteful blend of today’s more modern era all wrapped up into one tightly knit package for die hard fans of the genre. With innovative use of his mid to high vocal range, Jason brings strength to this track with excellent melody choices and backup harmonies that encompass an essence similar to industry heavyweights like Usher and Ne-Yo.

As the title says, “Numb” tells a story about those who say they’ll be there for you, but always end up letting you down in the end no matter how much effort you put in. It’s a song that can easily resonate with you as a listener, and although the concept is fairly known, Jason sings it in a way where his vocal delivery makes the song more about how he delivers the message, not necessarily the message itself. He’s an effective, accessible artist that will be loved among all R&B fans both old and new, and brings a fresh dynamic to the genre that will undoubtedly make him standout. The production value on this song is also a treat, keeping the musicianship factors fresh, inventive, and traditional all at the same time.

“Numb” is available now on all mainstream digital music platforms. His 7-track EP/Album drops on June 7th, and will also be available on the same platforms. You’ll be more than glad we recommended Jason Biyo, you’ll be seeing (and hearing) his name much more this year.

Exclusive Review: Rita Pam – “Change The Tide” Single

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

Everybody loves good groovy verses and anthemic choruses. It’s a great formulaic balance between originality, familiarity and tasteful blending of tempos and moods. That’s why singer/songwriter and producer Rita Pam‘s hit single “Change The Tide” is a standout of its caliber and a fresh take on a Rock-inspired Pop approach.

This song has a mysterious subtlety that immediately grabs your attention; the out-front punchy rhythm section and texturized piano and keys during the verses are reminiscent of hit songs like Alannah Myles’ “Black Velvet”, which sets the tone for the track as well as the charm. Rita‘s impressively high vocal range is very apparent and is showcased very effectively in the chorus, giving her the breathing room to explore her artistic merit. When blended together, we get a dynamic song that is diligently crafted with elements of Pop and Rock that give a great callback to the 80s as well as today’s more mainstream chart toppers.

Rita has been a staple of the industry since she emerged in 2007, and its song’s like this one that have garnered her an insatiable buzz and growing fan base. Her album ‘Anna’ (which features this single) made amazing strides throughout the market and is an acclaimed record altogether. This hit single, as well as ‘Anna’ and Rita‘s full catalogue, is currently available online and several digital music platforms. She is an eclectic artist you really need to check out and keep tabs on as she continues to write, produce, and put out new material that keeps getting better over time like fine wine. You’ll be more than happy that you did.

Exclusive Review: Maria Jacinta – “Human” Single

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky


Hailing from the landscapes of the Netherlands, Techno/Dance recording artist Maria Jacinta began hitting the ground running in the early 2000s with her electronically-infused, distinctive sound. Since then, she has garnered an insatiable buzz throughout the music world with many solid releases, industry exposure and word of mouth. And she continues her winning streak with her latest single “Human”.

This song’s Techno and Dance combination is very atmospheric and upbeat, mixing in textures of Pop elements as well which gives her the outlet to really shine in the infectiously catchy chorus. Her exotic mid-to-high range vocals are encompassed perfectly in this song and feels like she was meant to be a vocalist for this specific genre; her lyricism is projected smoothly, her vocal melody choices are wholesome and on point, and the overall production value makes “Human” a completely visceral listening experience from beginning to end.

Maria‘s vocals really carry the torch on this track, but there’s also brilliant key progressions and structure as well, and even includes an incredible EDM-oriented synth solo towards the end of the song. But overall, one of the biggest things this track has going for it is its ability to have staying power – where the song stays with you even long after it’s over, and can still be appreciated wholesomely even years later where you find yourself coming back to this track time and time again. “Human” is currently available online and several digital music streaming platforms. You’ll thank us later for recommending it.

Exclusive Review: Darshae Kiér – “Halasana Girl” Single

Article by: Justyn W. Brodsky


Fun, vibrant, and unique are a few good ways to describe Miami-based recording artist Darshae Kiér, but most of all, he is authentic and real. And he demonstrates these qualities in his newest single “Halasana Girl”.

After a heavy street buzz formed from the success of his previous single “Translation”, Darshae knew he had to keep his winning streak going by putting out this anthemic single, and just like before, he hit the mark once again. Taking on an approach that combines smooth elements of Pop and Reggaeton, “Halasana Girl” is one of those tracks that is bound to get your hips shaking and the dance floor moving. Darshae‘s lyrical ability serves up rhyming techniques that are clear and crisp, projecting smooth bars and rhymes that is perfectly parallel with the song’s ambient and uplifting beat structure. It’s a formula that works, and Darshae sells it perfectly from start to finish.

“Halasana Girl” released last year on September 27th, and since then has become an anthem for summer-fall vibes and a staple among digital music playlists. Darshae Kiér is quickly becoming a vital voice in the hip hop community and is direct proof that underground hip hop is alive and well. If he keeps up the pace, he will easily cross over into the mainstream market; and we will be stoked when it happens. You can listen to “Halasana Girl” on SoundCloud and other digital music streaming platforms. Be sure to also follow Darshae Kiér on social media to stay up to date on his current activities, as well as future events.
