Eyal Erlich, Folk Singer on the Rise


Eyal Erlich’s work presents a haunting beauty that represents the best of what bluesy folk can offer. Keeping things to the absolute essentials Eyal Erlich chooses to go for small intimate arrangements. Throughout his output there is a fondness for stripping things down to the absolute essentials. By far the heart and soul comes from his delicate lyricism, one that focuses upon a love for the world. Sung with the utmost of passion, Eyal Erlich’s voice has an incredible range. Additionally, his guitar work has a soothing quality to it, as he taps into glimmering rhythmic riffs where all feels so real and tactile. Over the course of the first few tracks of his Soundcloud profile, Eyal Erlich’s emotional delivery recalls the tenderness of Nick Drake’s later works, in particular the loveliness of “Pink Moon”.

Spacious to its core “Rain” has an angelic quality to it, as Eyal Erlich’s voice perfectly soars into the sky. A sense of community comes into the fray with the reassuring message of “Already In”. Nimble guitar work adds to the directness of “All In All”. The smoothness of “It don’t seem right” chooses to go for a spirited, almost giddy kind of energy. Celebratory energy infuses the lush “5 AM”. Hushed whispers rise up on the potent “I wish I knew”. Perfect with its balance between tremendous outpouring of compassion “Mourning Love” at times taps into Vashti Bunyan’s graceful presence.

Through his attention to detail, these songs have a tremendous emotional impact as Eyal Erlich shows off the undeniable power of folk.

Based-out of Tel Aviv, Israel, singer/songwriter Eyal Erlich takes a personal approach to his music that resonates with a humble honesty and sincere passion. Embracing the freedom of expression, his vibrant & versatile sound features soulful melodies in an acoustic setting, and a wide range of highly imaginative ideas that combine genuine heart and a sheer desire to entertain & truly communicate through music.

Junior vs. DJ Pleez – Ready to Love

Junior vs. DJ Pleez goes for a physical sort of dance pop with the passionate “Ready to Love”. With immaculate production that positively glistens, the pieces feel so crisp, teeming with life. Best of all are the vocals which show off an impressive range. Stylistically while the sound is anchored with this poppy sensibility, elements of hip-hop, R&B, even electronica flows into the mix with the utmost of ease. Right in the center of all of these and tying everything together is a tender form of lyricism, one that explores a sense of desire. Yearning and relationships help to sculpt these stories, ones that help to tie the entire collection together. At times the collection recalls the 80s R&B experiments of Neon Indian and other similarly-minded chillwave artists.

By far the highlight of the collection comes with the multifaceted opener and title track “Ready To Love”. Tactile details come to the forefront, from the soothing deep bass to the playful finger snaps. Multiple layers of sound work wonders as everything feels downright gorgeous. Slowing things down a little bit is the neon-hued realm of “Together (Forever)”. Dreamy to its core a degree of optimism enters into the mix, with a pulsing groove further adding to the sense of luxury that permeate the piece. Ending things on a high note is the lush and summery sound of “Love Ya”.

With “Ready to Love” Junior vs. DJ Pleez chooses a full-bodied, fully engrossing sort of sound, one that feels so real.

Junior (aka Brian McKnight Jr.) is a talented LA-based singer, songwriter and performer. This is a project in collaboration with SF Bay Area DJ & Producer, DJ Pleez bio here:

Regal in temperament “Los Ejes de mi Carreta” has a mysterious aura to it. Thoughtful and contemplative “Chacarera de las Piedras” chooses a nimble path, with guitars merging together with a slightly theatrical flourish. “Lie Down Beside Me” strips things down the essentials, with shimmering tones and deep, lovely vocals adorning the entirety of the piece. A brightness permeates the highlight of the album, the tender “Tres Morillas”. An autumnal presence underlies the spirited “Des Oge Mais”.

Ravenscroft – Rebel EP

Ravenscroft is a seasoned foursome of musicians whose individual backgrounds and eclectic educations present handsomely delivered melodic alternative rock.

Ravenscroft is Melodic, Hard Hitting Rock that comes from the Soul! Their sound is derived from the very Best of Old School meets New School Hard Rock/Metal. Black Sabbath meets Tool, Drowning Pool meets Shinedown, Creed meets Godsmack! Ravenscroft is very Familiar, yet very New, Original and Cutting Edge! We were lucky enough to listen to their unreleased album titled ‘Rebel EP’. The release date has not been set.

Ravenscroft offers a soulful hard hitting hard rock on the passionate “Rebel EP”. Downright bombastic Ravenscroft blasts through the EP with a take no prisoners approach. Vocals soar above the distorted guitar din and swinging force of nature style of the rhythms. Everything virtually demands to be blasted at the highest possible volume. Layer upon layer is added with the utmost of care for Ravenscroft draws from hard rock classics alongside their contemporaries. From this approach what emerges is a sound that feels timeless yet of the here and now. Washing over the listener with a true ear for infectious hooks, the compelling nature of the tracks comes from the commanding vocals alongside the colossal guitar riffs that soar over the entire collection.

Pummeling percussion and wild guitar work comes together on the churning grooves of “The Chase”. A tribal rhythm takes hold on the ceremonial stylings of “Denomination” where the vocal delivery adds to the intensity, along with the low-slung nature of bass, rumbling with a sense of fury. Rushing through with a great energy alongside a certain degree of nimbleness, “Jaded” offers a degree of tension that they build up until the whole thing simply explodes with an intense energy. By far the highlight of the collection comes from the chaotic “Rebel”. A little bit of a mystical vibe enters into the equation on the taut “Stand Up”. Turning things on their head is the tenderness of “Dearest One” where Ravenscroft turn the volume down to reveal a real ear from melody and uncanny knack for storytelling.

Aptly named, Ravenscroft tap into an atmosphere of pure unbridled defiance with the potent “Rebel EP”.




Rapper Angello Black Releases Hot New Single “Copa”

Scottsdale, Arizona’s own Latin hip-hop crossover artist Angello Black dropped his latest song Copa (Cup) . Originally hailing from Virginia, the first generation rapper/musician became enamored with the idea of a career in music at the age of 14 after having a vivid dream about becoming a performer. At the same age he was inspired to hone his craft by listening to the hip-hop artists of that time such as Jay Z, Eminem and Young Jeezy who are considered legendary MC’s today.

Over the years Black has crafted a very diverse modern style that is a mix of Latin EDM and hip-hop while he frequently spits rhymes with ease in both English and Spanish. He has also been methodically developing his brand working with other up and coming music artists while also being heavily involved in producing music tracks for television, social media and film. Black sees himself as morphing into a mogul in the music industry similar to other savvy triple threat performers turned music moguls like Dr. Dre and Black’s childhood idol Jay Z. Black sees his future as being a talent well known for producing, writing and performing – “a connoisseur to the business side of the music industry”, he says.

Angello Black’s song Copa (Cup) produced and written by Black, Izzy Neutron, and DJ Shaw T is in reference to the value of women being more than just a trophy or arm candy. Black explains, “It’s about beautiful, independent hardworking women. The go-getters. The ones that want a successful man as their companions. ”

Copa floods is available on ITunes and throughout digital media platforms.

Born in Texas to Salvadoran parents, Angello Black lived with his single mother. As a young child he remembers going to El Salvador and listening to an artist by the name of El General (Reggaeton). His sound rescinded with him for years to come. “I felt his music through my veins and from there on I made a decision that I wanted to one day make music like that” At the young age of 10 Angello’s mom could no longer financially or emotionally support her son that she had no choice but put him in foster care. Throughout the years he lived with several families, the last of which he grew very close too. His foster Grandma, who was a singer herself, inspired and encouraged him to pursue a musical career.

Everything starts with just a dream. A tiny spark. When Angello Black was just 14 years old he had a dream of performing that seemed so real, so vivid that it became his life’s goal and ambition. As a first generation musician, he began exploring the sounds he heard around him and has developed into a hip-hop artist primed for superstardom with a growing fan base stretching from the U.S, Central and South America, and the Caribbean. “Music is a part of my life, countless sacrifices life-changing experiences, music moves me everywhere. It’s the fuel to my soul. I enjoy the process of producing my craft, performing it. Its a way of life. But it’s also serving as in influence to those aspiring to peruse their dreams”, says Angello. Black adds, “My style is very modern, Latin EDM, hip-hop, rap. I usually switch it up – English and Spanish in the records. I keep it diverse in my music”.

His sound is an amalgamation of today’s boss hip-hop tones with rhymes displaying a feverishly versatile Latin swagger, taking cues and lessons from his influences such as Jay Z, Eminem, Young Jezzy, and Tego Calderon just to name a few who have laid the groundwork before him. Angello Black has also been writing private projects for television programming, commercials, ads, and movie trailers for a while now as an in-demand independent artist. Having already successfully created music for brands such as Warner Bro’s , Buzz Feed Netflix, and Toyota, Black is confident in expressing his future, “I predict my music will be collecting Grammy’s and Billboards, it will be heard globally and thru out the entire universe. ”

With the care and sweat equity that Angello Black puts into his work as both an artist and performer one is apt to believe his prediction will easily come to fruition. Currently, Black has three tunes he wrote and produced “Rap Don”, “Chapulin” and “Cumpleaños” featured on Spotify, iTunes, and YouTube. He says his music is a reflection of the life he has lived and seen set to compositions. One can tell that sky’s the limit for the young rapper as he proclaims, “this upcoming year of 2018 will be in full force of promotion and marketing my music campaigns. I also will be more involved in major labels and brands. Expanding my music all across the globe.”

Angello is currently gearing up for a promotional campaign promoting his new music and his new music video. He hopes to also one day to open up his own organization that will mentor foster children and let them know that there is hope out there with great opportunities.
