[Hip-Hop] Jez Dior – Scarle†† Sage

Scarle†† Sage

You know, it’s kind of strange to have an album release on a Wednesday, considering industry protocol has always been Tuesday. But why follow convention when your music doesn’t do so? Over the last few months the team here at TMN have steadily fallen in love with Jez Dior‘s music one by one, and that’s mainly because he’s consistently been able to differentiate himself from your average rapper. One of the many endearing qualities about Jez is his versatility. Sampling artists like Lana Del ReyDaughter, and even Eiffel 65, Jez draws influences from a wide range of genres from dub to alternative rock, which allows him–alongside producer Danny Score–to construct a sound unlike anything else out there. Maybe that has something to do with his upbringing, as being the son of rocker Steve Dior, he’s stated he’s looked to idols like Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain, and Kanye West for inspiration.

At only 21 (wish him a Happy Birthday), Jez Dior displays confidence well beyond his years. He brings with him a fiery intensity that shines through on bangers like “Blue” and “Move On” as well as more emotional numbers like “Love Me To Death” and “Tough To Talk To.” It’s the authentic approach to his music that’s noticeable in every one of his verses. Jez Dior strives to make real music, with true feelings regarding subjects of love, death and drug abuse, making it all easily relatable. Normally we only feature a few selections from every album we review on here, but we felt it wouldn’t be fair to just share a handful of tracks when every one of them is so special. At a length of only 10 tracks anyway, Jez Dior takes the “less is more” approach with Scarle†† Sage, providing us with a high quality experience from start to finish.

Check out a full stream of the album below, and make sure to grab yourself a free copy of the project as well.

[Show Review] Bassnectar – Red Rocks amphitheater, Colorado

bassnectar-RedRocks

And sometimes, you go to a show that just blows your mind, literally and figuratively.

The night at Red Rocks was just right, a cool summer evening as fans of the acclaimed electronic master, Bassnectar, gathered for the second night of back-to-back sold out shows. As he took the stage, the longhaired musician gave some love to Colorado and then put it simply, “I know trap music is the music style this year but I’m going to play some good old dub all night.”
Play dub? Not even, he played, threw down, molded, melted dub all over the crowd that night. Bringing along his own sound system did not hurt either, his deep melodies and intense beat sessions could be heard far outside of Red Rocks. Bassnectar, also known as Lorin Ashton, has been at this for a while the whole killing people with his musical talents. He went to his first rave back in 1995 when he was just a young buck and since then, his world and our world has never been the same. Naming himself the famous Bassnectar, he released his first album back in 2001 and I was only too happy to hear him go back to his beginning roots. He played songs that were a decade old that still held the same excitement they did when they were first released, and the crowd loved him for it. All musicians start somewhere and Bassnectar is one of those musicians whose beat naturally flowed out of him from the minute he touched his first electronic music system.

Playing for over two hours straight, Bassnectar showed why he has such a huge fan base and why his music will continue to awe and inspire his adoring supporters.

Keep rocking those long locks Bassnectar and keep capturing the hearts, ears and minds of all who listen to you.

[TMN Resident Artist for June] Dwelling with Celldweller

Klayton-Hero-Main-iTunes-Image

Start with a person. Or, more specific, a musician. Now, add in different types of music. A little dubstep, a little drub & bass, a little electro, some aggressive rock & metal and then to make things really interesting, a dash of orchestral elements. And let’s amp up the musician to take the titles of producer, songwriter, programmer, re-mixer and of course, performer. Combine all the of these elements and who emerges but a highly talented artist who has been changing the face of electronic music for almost a decade now.

Enter Celldweller, our new resident artist for the month of June. To all of his loyal fans, he is known as Klayton, the heart, mind and soul behind the red haired musician Celldweller and the man who constantly is changing the game when it comes to music.

Klayton calls Detroit home, a city with electronic music history flowing through its streets. It was here that Celldweller first released his debut album back in 2003, “Celldweller” which immediately caught the attention of fans and critics who praised Klayton for his unique and undeniably talented sound. From there, Klayton has only grown in his popularity and has taken his own music and his love for the music scene to the next level. Klayton is the proud founder of FiXT, a rapidly growing media company that works as a record label, an online music and merchandise outlet, a publicity wing, and as a film/television/game licensing department. One of the reasons FiXT covers all of these aspects is because Celldweller’s own music has been used numerous time in television shows, movies and especially in video games. Wouldn’t it get you more psyched up to destroy a few aliens with the sounds of Celldweller blasting through your headphones?

Klayton’s sound is distinctive; he brings a lot of his rock and metal passions to the table when making his music. That is something that makes him a truly diverse musician and producer, keeping true to the music of his roots but then throwing in a complete new electronic sound that captivates all of his listeners.

As we begin the new month with this red Mohawk artist, we are honored to be premiering one of his songs that is going to be released next week on Celldweller’s tenth anniversary deluxe addition cd.

Sit back and get ready for some out-of-this-world experiences with our new resident artist.

[Electronic/Dubstep] Protohype – Hear No Evil EP

Protohype

See no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil.

But feel free to play every dirty, nasty, evil electronic/dub beat that you want Protohype.
The young 23-year-old newer artist, whose real name is Max Hype, recently released the second part of his series after “See no Evil” with the highly anticipated “Hear no Evil”. The four tracks EP is composed of all original works and has some very talented vocals lent to some of the tracks.

Protohype starts the series strong with “Fly” featuring the stunning high vocals of Alina Renae. The song is my favorite on the EP; it is full of an unattainable energy that rises from your feet all the way to the top of your head. It tells the simple tale of finally being free from someone and how that has gives people the power to fly and do amazing things. There are intense drum rolls and hypnotic electronic melodies that make this an unforgettable song. “Jelly Roll” and “Bright Side”, which features Ras have a great energy surrounding them. “Jelly Roll” is an instrumental phenomenon that you can’t stop bopping around to. “Bright Side” again takes the powerful lyrics of Ras and combines them with Protohype’s intense musical style. To put the finishing touches on this EP, Protohype finishes with “Shatter” which starts with a mesmerizing violin entrance. The song continues with this beautiful violin throughout the whole song while Protohype loops in his drops and his powerful moments of electronic bliss.
Two parts down, one part to go, we can’t see what speaking no evil will do to our lips.
