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.

Exclusive Review: Oh Well – “Us” Single

Article by: Justyn W. Brodsky


Very few artists in this day and age can conjure up an unrelentingly powerful first impression quite like Chicago-based artist Oh Well. Coming out the gate with the new single “Us”, this song not only encompasses a signature style that is energy-driven and versatile, but a boat load of musicianship factors as well; allowing Oh Well to shine in all their glory throughout this single’s duration.

This anti-pop banger is loaded with an onslaught of in-your-face vocals that project a powerful delivery in Hip Hop that is rarely heard. It’s also a track that encapsulates a true knack for passion and making sure the listener doesn’t walk away unsatisfied; showcasing an innovative edge that balances equal parts originality and familiarity. “Us” has multifaceted angles of different genre blends that lend a razor sharp edge to an otherwise contemporary sound including touches of Rock and Reggae, which Oh Well ultimately incorporates brilliantly. Overall, this track brings some of the freshest ideas to a mainstream Hip Hop style, and it’s honestly a mind-blow that this song hasn’t topped the charts yet. The anticipation to hear the material they have up their sleeves after this song is absolutely riveting, and once you take a listen to “Us” yourself, you’ll understand exactly why.

“Us” is available now on YouTube and other digital music platforms. Be sure to follow Oh Well to keep tabs on upcoming events and releases.

Artist Review: Bruja – “False Prophets” Album/EP

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

If you’re the type of music fanatic that digs contagiously catchy Rock-infused Blues with a plethora of grooves, then Bruja is the band for you. The Delray Beach, Florida-based quartet of solid musicians has been making some major noise in their scene since their formation with their solid signature sound and energetic live shows. And with the release of their six-track record “False Prophets”, which dropped November 1st in 2019, Bruja has raised the bar even higher not just for themselves, but for their scene as well.

From crunchy guitar swells, ambient keyboard textures, a dangerously groovy and punchy rhythm section all topped off with anthemic vocal melodies and top-of-the-line production value, “False Prophets” is a stroke of true genius. Bruja comes together nicely to bring a collection of solid grooves to the forefront of each track very effectively, but it’s also a record that showcases each member of the machine and the impact their individual musicianship brings to the table. With a strong start to the record with the song “Coming Down”, their elements of high energy are diligently in the mix with a great structure throughout the song’s duration. This song in particular has one of the strongest choruses the album offers and never drags out in any way. The dueling crunchy guitars with crybaby-wawa touches puts an atmosphere into Bruja‘s sound that is very visceral and versatile; making this track a more than solid opener.

One factor this album boasts is its ability to remain consistent while also giving each track a different approach to the overall execution. Every instrument/element stands out on this album on its own and would not be nearly as effective if one member were to be taken out of the equation; giving Bruja a chemistry that is perfectly mixed and meshed together. With hints of reggae in the mix, this band’s charismatic sound is not only cleverly executed, but also quenches your insatiable thirst to indulge in something with equal parts originality and familiarity; a modern take on yesterday’s iconic sound that has something for everyone. With album title track “False Prophets” and the instrumental “Check The Groove”, you can clearly hear the diversity this record offers and the clever song structuring in the songwriting process that Bruja brings forth as a unit. The album closer “Roots” is also a crucial standout in its own right with a blend of elements from every track that came before it; which ties it all together into one tastefully catchy record with all the Rock and Blues sweetness you could crave with more than enough groove to go around.

‘False Prophets‘ is a record with staying power, where you can keep coming back to these songs time and time again and love it every time. It sets the bar high for what Bruja has in store for their future releases. Regardless, you’ll be keeping up with them to see just how far they’ll go. And you’ll be glad you did.

Artist Review: Prophett – “Hold Onto Me” Single

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

When it comes to getting your body moving, and getting the beats and vibes juicin’, Prophett means serious business with his latest single “Hold Onto Me”.

Accompanied by an official music video with some scenic and dynamically shot cinematography, this track is one for the books on Prophett‘s catalogue of catchy releases with his vibrantly hooky style. This song comes out swinging in the first frame and never wavers. The funky and fresh beat with a perfect Hip Hop and Salsa combo gives this song the versatility it needs to truly stand out. Whether it’s in your favorite club hotspot or Sony Xplodes car system, this track should be spinning, no matter the occasion.

This song, like the video portrays, gives us a tasteful insight into Prophett‘s craft, sing-songy vocal style, image and swagger that’s properly presented with beautiful outdoor scenery and all about “rocking” throughout the night. It’s a track that really puts the audio and imagery on equal playing grounds and truly gives this single the best platform and portrayal it could muster. The lyrics are masterfully smooth, the production value is top notch, and this song is mainstream-worthy in every way.

If this is the first time discovering Prophett, you’ll be seriously glad you did.

Artist Review: Ariz – “Testify (Girl You’re Good)” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Two talented voices, one explosive song. We get a captivating and danceable listening experience with young Nigerian duo Ariz‘s newest single “Testify (Girl You’re Good).”

Some of the best music that graces our platform comes from younger up and coming artists that are just coming out the gate to get their message out to the world. And Ariz does exactly that with this premier single.

Their raspy and charismatic vocal approach is super melodic and really grabs your attention. Their shared, dueling verses are well placed, well paced and really solidified their signature sound between both singers. Then the chorus comes in with a higher ranged ambience and vocal projection that has amazingly catchy vocal harmonies. And that’s the peak of the song that really displays their their talent right out in the open, and it’s an unwavering joy to behold to hear this level of talent at such a young age.

The production quality of this track is very detailed and reinforces a lot of yesterday’s dance sensibilities with today’s modern additives. It’s a very vibrant feel-good listening experience any avid Dance/Pop fan can appreciate with a very versatile approach coming from a duo that clearly knows how to collaborate successfully.

And this is what makes “Testify” all the more better. It has an original yet familiar feel that is fun, atmospheric and energetic approach all wrapped up into one multifaceted collaborative effort. And it doesn’t disappoint in the least.

Ariz is definitely on a very promising path with this single, and really shows their prospective direction and depth as a dynamic duo. You’ll be very glad you gave this song a listen.

Artist Review: Zama Rripa – “American Soul” LP

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

With great spirit, good nature, and a whole hearted eclectic sound driving his passion for music forward, Zama Rripa proves with his newest album American Soul that his message is just as powerful as his music.

Zama, emerging from the elite Miami music scene, has been garnering an insatiable street buzz with his indie-folk-americana rock style and free spirited lyrics that are uplifting and warm; yet take a stand at the same time in a positive and protesting way. He has performed all over the world in various bands as well as a solo artist, and his solo effort in American Soul really touches on his experiences, views and adventures into finding one’s journey and purpose.

Each anchor single off this album is very anthemic and has a very vibrant and almost tropical feel at times. With some reggae influences in the mix with a modern folk and americana signature, each track is very eclectic in its structure and timeless in its message.

With smooth acoustic textures and clean guitar layers that blend in with a very rhythmic flow, Zama‘s songwriting structures are very fresh, bold and deliver an authentic feel that is genuine and heartfelt. You can feel the passion that has been put into these tracks, and it really authenticates Zama‘s artistic merit every time each song plays out. There’s no specific formula – he writes and plays what he loves, and that’s what makes a songwriter truly influential.

If there’s one thing I can say about American Soul, it’s that Zama aims to inspire to be inspired. And to truly take in his music for what it really is – inspiring. He’s one of those artists that truly wants to make the world a better place through his music. And American Soul encompasses that with every track.

American Soul officially releases on October 26th and will be available on all digital music retailers and streaming platforms.
