Interviews with top Beat music advocates celebrities, musicians, artists, and icons about their current and past music projects.
Vaporwave & fdsdf
What I was hearing was a cross between Muzak and futuristic synth-like sounds overlaid with discordant beats and rhythms. I wasn’t sure what to make of it since so many of us are conditioned to think of and or listen to music in a certain way. Harmony, beats, fluid, and congruent melodies are what we expect listening to tunes. I’m partial to soulful rhythms as they are what have always captured and held me in time, but this piece was different. The sounds on this track were dissonant, a tad jarring yet stirring in parts, interspersed with odd loops and crossfading that felt like a journey down the rabbit hole in song. It was nothing like I’d ever heard before. I learned this music is called Vaporwave, and with artist names like The Darkest Future, HKE, and Telepath, it piqued my curiosity. I knew I wanted to learn more about it and I knew just who to ask.
Waje gets real about how old generation is dealing with new generation of singers
When a new generation comes along, the old generation almost always starts to raise their nose or criticize the antiques of the young while the newer generation scorns the ways of the old. It is the inevitable circle of life.
Music has been part of Midnight Prophet's life ever since he was young, as it really helped him through very rough times. Formed in 2006, Midnight Prophet wanted to share it his music on a more broader scale. The name, Midnight Prophet, came from the fact that I wrote mostly from Midnight on and because I wanted to help others through my songs. The Other Side is Midnight Prophet's latest single, to be included on his upcoming album, and specifically deals with the isolation one feels when going through psychological abuse. Ultimately it is about coming to terms that you are not alone and that there will be a way through it.
Mulligan's 'Constant Companion' streaming on Spotify & iTunes
There comes a point, when learning music, where you lose a sense of identity. Playing the same cover songs, exhausted from scales and tired of trying to emulate an artist you admire can take a toll on you. You get lost in a sea of normality. But creating music is different. You take those same influences you loved when you were a kid, those same scales you spent hours day in and night and put it to work. You make a real Identity for yourself. A new name, a new sound. - Mulligan

RnB singer-songwriter, show-stopping performer - Sofia Evangelina
Endure is not just a song, it's a mentality, and more so, a declaration of survival. The song's lyrics feature many of artist's personal stories morphed into picturesque metaphors, so vivid that you could almost create mini-film scenes from each. 'Endure' is not about feeling the victory to overcome evil, not yet. At the moment of facing the evil, you are deciding whether you are going to cave and give in to the hell or if you will put up a fight cause you know that you were made for more. This is that fight song dedicated to the testament of the human spirit and that lust of strength we muster to endure through the treacherous moment that encaves us. Produced by Roy Hamilton III (Michael Jackson, Britney Spears, Monica, Joe... )
