Les Kirsh: ‘Tell Me To My Face’

Pop, Rock, Soul

If you’ve always been a bit of a soul fan, but are disappointed that the genre has seemingly died, then don’t despair as 70s soul-man Les Kirsh has resurrected his singing career with 3 re-mastered singles, which he self-categorises under his own label of ‘modern-soul’.

Consequently, there are a few other elements from other genres mixed in there, from pop, rock and even a little bit of dance, but as always with Les, soul is at the heart of play.

Back in the 70s, Les’ career was stopped in its tracks by a terrible car crash and it is only now that he is returning to his glory days.

Vispa steps back in time for retro synth-esque ‘Cosmic Force’

Dance, Disco/Techno, Electronica, Synth-Pop

It’s not often that you get to hear music coming from Iran, but it’s a refreshing change to see what’s happening musically in other parts of the world as electronic artist, Vispa, drops his retro-infused dance track, ‘Cosmic Force’.

You wouldn’t be blamed for thinking that ‘Cosmic Force’ is straight out of an 80s video game with its pulsating drum beat, resonating synths and sense of tension building. But this is perhaps the best part of Vispa’s music; his ability to draw on style of old and bring them into the modern day.

Not only this, but there’s certainly a dance factor to his music, made all the better with the expertly timed drops and changes in instrumentation throughout the track.

However, much like ‘Cosmic Force’ is a true space-explorer of a track, Vispa is an explorer of music himself, constantly experimenting with genre and sound to gain more ideas for his new material.

Categorising his sound under the sub-genres of ‘synth-pop’, ‘space music’ and ‘electro-orchestral’, Vispa finds inspiration from all over the musical world, taking influence from other notable artists such as classical legend Hans Zimmer, Tangerine Dream, Depeche Mode and synth icons, The Pet Shop Boys.

‘Down The Aisle’ by Music Theory

Pop, Uncategorized

In recent years, pop music seems to have diverged into so many different sub-categories that the base genre of ‘pop music’ doesn’t really exist anymore. However, up and coming Egyptian artist, Music Theory, is changing all of that with his brand of honest ‘pop’ music.

Music Theory writes about the typical topics you would expect: love, loss – that sort of thing. But in a musical world where most songs these days are about getting drunk or debaucherous activity, in some ways it’s refreshing to hear something as simply written as Music Theory’s ‘Down The Aisle’.

The talented artist admits himself that his music falls into the mainstream category, but this is perhaps the most admirable thing about his music; he isn’t trying to form his own ‘niche’ or anything like that, just write good music.

‘Down The Aisle’ is a touching love song driven by an enchanting melody and infectious vocals that pave the way for a highly memorable chorus.

The visionary artist has even started a blog to tell the story of his rise in the music industry which you can check out here:

Jake Aldridge – ‘Fireman’

Uncategorized

Jake Aldridge is somebody who puts his heart into the music he creates. The way he captivates the listener with his confident lyrics and emotional themes contained within his music. Aldridge has been building a strong head of steam thus far. He has gone to number 1 on Zone Radio’s Top 40 Charts, regular airtime on Play Boy TV and featuring on Tom Robinson’s BBC Introducing Mixtape.

With ‘Fireman’ the rapper collaborates with singer-songwriter Lisa Ambrose, who won Battle of the Bandstands, which is presented BBC Radio 1’s Rob the Bank. The essence of the song is really the story behind it. ‘Fireman’ is all about losing somebody you love in life. Aldridge unfortunately knows this all too well. He lost his father when he was age 11; the song has a strong emotional impact that can really reap through the listeners once they are aware of this personal tragedy.

Originally not having a musical bloodline, he got into after his father’s death as a form of therapy. You can see how he became a skilled and well crafted lyricist with ‘Fireman’ as they flow smoothly and the evidence of mastering rap is there.  The track is produced to a high standard; it is ballad-esque RnB fused with hip-hop. Lisa Ambrose gracefully holds her own in the unforgettable chorus. Aldridge finds peace in being able to express his personal feeling within his music; it’s similar to his inspiration of Tupac Shakur and Dr.Dre.  If he is able to carry on being produced by Bristol based Ninety II, then we can expect a polished catalogue of songs.

‘Run’ by Tony Banks

Hip Hop, house, Rap, Uncategorized

‘Run’ is the infectious new track from Brooklyn musician Tony Banks, who fuses a potent combination of house, dance and hip-hop that is carving his own space in the music industry.

EarthTone and JwlB also feature on the track, where Tony exhibits some of his best raps alongside a pulsating beat that echoes the title of the song.

Tony is an artist who takes inspiration from all over the musical world, but most notably, Missy Elliot, Michael Jackson and Andre 3000. As a result, Banks has formed a style like nothing you’ve ever heard before. Tony himself describes his sound as ‘Move ya feet, feel good’ music and it is easy to see why upon listening to ‘Run’.

‘Run’ is taken from Tony’s upcoming EP, Yes Homo.
