'For You' ... from Tye Cee
From a very young age, Tye Cee was always surrounded by music at home. The record player was constantly playing sounds of extraordinary singers and composers of Soul, Funk, Disco, Pop, Caribbean, Folk, Bossa Nova or even Opera. Through these different currents, Tye Cee could find some relief and escape the difficult moments. This fusion of influences and meanings gave birth to his passion for singing, performing and composing his own nostalgic fusion of neo-soul songs. Through music, Tye Cee wanted to give back some entertainment, peace and relief to everyone who listens to his music – so they can see that they are not being left behind. Tye Cee knows what it’s like to feel that way. For You has been released this past August (2021) on all digital music platforms; Tye Cee wanted to do something different for his new single, For You. With this song, he wanted to have fun travelling to the dance floor vibes of the 80s. Tye Cee wanted something fresh, up-tempo with bass and funky beats to contrast with the lyrics which may sound a bit nostalgic but with inches of hope. Tye Cee hopes you enjoy it as much as he enjoyed composing and writing it.

Joyce Ln ... not just 'Static'
Joyce Ln is an Indie Rock band from Chicago, Illinois. Starting as a group of high school friends learning to play instruments and a shared love for bands like Catfish and the Bottlemen, The Strokes, and the Arctic Monkeys, Joyce Ln spent a summer learning covers and playing for friends. Shortly after, Joyce Ln began writing original songs and playing shows, eventually winning a battle of the bands to play a music festival alongside Rock n’ Roll legend Steven Tyler. After going to different colleges, the band didn’t have much time together, but made the most of school breaks to continue their passion. During the Covid pandemic, the band used their free time to focus on music again and write their latest single, Static. The song was recorded and produced by the legendary Gravity Studios. Static was inspired by the purchase of a new fuzz guitar pedal, which in extremely rare situations can capture and output radio station audio through a guitar amp. The day Static was first written, British radio signals were suddenly blasted out of the lead guitarist’s amp.

Sorry dear world
Though influences as diverse as The Rolling Stones, Muse, David Bowie, Radiohead and many others can be spotted, "Sorry dear world" nevertheless has its own style and a genuine sound identity, perfectly in tune with its times. Mixing haunting rock riffs with an irresistible electro-pop atmosphere, supported by a warm and powerful voice, "Sorry dear world" is one of those singles that you catch and love from the first listen... and even more the following ones! A French- and English-speaking songwriter, Raphaël Klemm is a real musician, a passionate guitarist nurtured on the roots of legendary rock. But also an inspired singer and lyricist. After having written and composed many songs in French, particularly acclaimed for the quality of their lyrics, he now shifts to the other side of his musical and linguistic passion: That of all these mythical groups which shaped the musician within him. Thus he offers us "Sorry dear world", a melodic bomb with bittersweet lyrics, where God has decided to ignore the calls of a world he no longer recognizes. And where Men are forced to leave a message on his answering machine, which he may never listen to...

Live with Ciph Boogie
Just like Jerellz, I met Ciph Boogie through the Stationhead app. He was one of the first people to welcome me to the platform and made me feel comfortable interviewing on air. While I was getting my concept and format together, he was supportive and ALWAYS promoting his music on the app and social media channels, so he was a natural choice for an interview.
