Awesome beats, surprising melodies and a sound that feels like you’re listening to an old record you just discovered in an underground shop are the feelings I get when listening to Kyn Krunk. Kyn certainly lives up to the Krunk!  Each of Kyn’s tracks are unique in that they provide the listener with such rich sonic textures that you can almost piece together your own cinematic story.  I found myself saying, “Yes!” a lot while listening to these beats.

My Favorite track so far has been “Bird Machine”, keep reading and everything changes. At first I was like ok, now I’m like this is cool! I’ll be looking forward to future developments in JackEL’s music. I feel like everyday day is Christmas when I hear “Bird Machine”.
Bird machine is clever, very clever. If it wasn’t for that song I don’t know how I’d get up to finish my posting duties but then came…

I’m Blue (JackEL Remix) – Eiffel65

This is a good remix to a familiar friend I’ve known for years, Eiffel 65’s classic song, “I’m Blue.” The remix is cool, so much so that I reposted it on soundcloud and played it again and again! Now this track is my favorite. It’s great and as for JackEL’s other works, you simply have to check em out. You must do yourself a favor and hit play.

Then discover “Fire Storm”! I’m telling you, discover “Fire Storm”.  “Bird Machine” was woah, “I’m Blue Remix” was wow and “Fire Storm” was woooooah with some great samples there, but I just wish it was a longer song. Too Short!

Why are all these hot songs I like short? That’s when I hear this….https://soundcloud.com/officialjackel/lrad-vs-animals-jackel-mashup . The problem is solved because this mashup that follows “Fire Storm” is CRAZY.  ENJOY!! Oh and then there’s the song, “Like A Pyramid Scheme”….see what happens when you listen? You can’t stop and just want to keep listening. That’s the mark of good music wouldn’t you say???  Just HIT PLAY!

Don’t forget to tune in next week for post 6 and more fresh free tunes and news! Till next time music lovers!!!

Peace & Viva Good Music!!!

Reactions to Kelvin Doe, a.k.a. DJ Focus from Sierra Leone & More Fresh, Free Music!

Welcome to post 4 my fellow music lovers! I came across this video through a link on Facebook dated 2012 and even though it’s an old story, the inspiration of it is timeless. This is a true story of then 15 year old Kelvin Doe, aka DJ Focus, who is known for teaching himself engineering at the age of 13 to aid his community. Doe sets an example for many youngsters with the idea that creativity and imagination can be agents of positive change in the world.

In the video, Doe explains how he helped his family and everyone in the poverty stricken community of Sierra Leone by using the power of technology and music. Digging through trash bins, the teen was able to make use of scrap metal and discarded electronic devices to build his own radio station, batteries and generators using advanced techniques fundamental to reverse engineering.

Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 5.19.48 PM

Known as DJ Focus, Doe plays music and broadcasts news. He adopted the name because of his belief that anything is possible if you just focus. This amazing young man proves that with enough determination and commitment anything is possible. To support young innovators like Kelvin, please visit http://www.crowdrise.com/InnovateSalone

Enjoy the inspiring video!

Freedom Fighters & Pixel – “Trick n’ Treat” (The Big Smashup)

Links to Facebook & Youtube:

https://www.facebook.com/freedomfightersofficial     https://www.youtube.com/user/FreedomFightersRiot

Excerpt from Soundcloud Bio:

“Freedom Fighters is the musical project of producer Shahaf Efrat (1989), from Tel Aviv, Israel.
Shahaf has been producing his own original music since 2005 and with a rapid rise to fame, performing worldwide since 2007.
Freedom Fighters music can be best described as Techno oriented Progressive Psytrance mixed with everyday life experiences. Whether its heavy underground psychedelic sound or a crystal clear techno oriented tune, one can be sure to recognize the unique signature sound in every track produced.”

My Take: Whenever an experienced music maker offers a mix, mashup, or an original tune free, I jump on it. In doing so I’m introduced to more great music. This time it’s Progressive Trance and Freedom Fighters is an another awesome example of a new take on established music genre. I had a good time listening to this and his other work. Check it out!

Relaxing Music Artist of The Week:

Need a Name

avatars-000066279021-hou44f-t500x500

Dario Lupo, aka, Need a Name. Genre: Ambient. Location: Melodies From Outer Space.

From Soundcloud Bio: “I create emotional, nostalgic ambient music featuring
larger-than-space reverbs.”  Links to Official Page & Facebook:  http://www.needanamemusic.com/site/   https://www.facebook.com/needanamemusic

Emotional, electronic and cinematic are just some of the words that describe Need A Name’s ambient music. Music artist, Dario Lupo makes use of piano, guitar and ambient sounds found in nature to produce a calm, soothing effect on the listener. Perfect music to relax, listen to his remix of Umber’s “The Day We Left For Earth” or “White Truffle” (My Favorite) or any of his other wonderful original productions. Listening to these tracks invoked memories of Sigur Ros and a bit of Eksi Ekso, but I was in an atmospheric state of total serenity by Dario Lupo’s own sound. Blood Pressure will be lowered and the music will wash stress away, but for best results listen with headphones on the way home from work. The tunes also work well for an evening of ambient listening in the crib.

Highly recommended.

Well that’s all for now! Be sure to drop by this Friday for more news on upcoming tunes, art and fresh free music! Till next time…

Peace & Viva Good Music!
