Review: can Elektron’s Model:Samples get everyone into hardware?

At about $400 street, with tons of hands-on control and simple samples, the Elektron Model:Samples has more in common with classic Japanese grooveboxes than the company’s flagships. So what’s it like to use? Here’s our review. This time, we turn to a new contributor – one who calls Elektron’s Gothenburg home, so we get that authentic Swedish touch. Andreas Roman is an accomplished content creator for the video game industry, an experienced tech journalist, and has a passion for music on the si...

Adam Black’s new 8802TE electro-acoustic guitar review

Adam Black have created an affordable electro-acoustic guitar that may be perfect if you’re starting out, on the road or small-time gigging. When you first pull Adam Black’s new electro-acoustic guitar out of the happily included guitar case that comes with it, the fine grain wooden finish resembles a beautiful, rustic guitar that wouldn’t look out of place on the shoulders of a nomadic folk singer. Upon whipping it out your audience might be in silent awe at the gorgeous sapel...

El Camino is an MC from Buffalo, New York who‘s been blowing up within the past couple years.

Mic Mountain – “The Avalanche” (Album Review)

Every now and then you come across a source of potential muddled in garbage. Much like a gold mine, it takes effort to get to that polished final product. There’s the excavating and digging, the refining- and then when all of that is done you’re left with a valuable item. This is how I feel about Mic Mountain and his 2018 release, “The Avalanche.” Right off the bat, the audio quality is terrible. It’s entirely unavoidable to talk about. The irony of someone named “Mic Mountain” recording wit...

Eclipse by Rosetti guitar strings review

We recently got our hands on some of Rosetti’s Eclipse strings to see how these slinky strings measure up. Spoiler alert: They’re pretty good. The nice people at Rosetti were kind enough to send us a set of their Eclipse strings for electric and acoustic guitars. We tested them out to see how they feel and what they sound like. I tried their 9-42 thickness, nickel roundwound electric guitar strings. The strings are incredibly slick to the touch with a slinkiness that makes playing on th...

570JV – “Foundation!” (EP Review)

Today, we are diving head first into “Foundation!“, the new project by rising rapper 570JV that came across our radar via submission.  From the start of listening to this EP with “If I Die”, I was kinda iffy on the direction this project was going since we try to stay away from commercial sounding auto-tune type music, but as soon as “What You Need” came on with a hard hitting beat following with the tongue twister “Remember The Name”, this is the type of EP that shows the diversity of styles 5...

DeFault Universe – “Deep Swim” (Album Review)

In 2017, rap duo Default Universe released an album titled “Deep Swim.” They’re making the rounds now, but how does it hold up today? My first listen to “Deep Swim” didn’t leave me too impressed. There are a few things which I will mention that I feel need to be improved or addressed. However, my second and third listens were much more revealing to the artistry layered beneath the surface. There is a consistently spacey, retro theme throughout the project. Each beat Coupled with the mellow, ...

HeiR – “2Pac’s HeiR” (Mixtape Review)

For any artist, of any stature, anytime you emulate an iconic figure in any career, be prepared to be critiqued at the highest regards due to the undying love and affection fans have for the unforgettable. Oakland recording artist HeiR will be just as held accountable like everyone else on this project as sparks attention with the title, 2Pac’s HeiR.

Clear Soul Forces – “Still” (Album Review)

Clear Soul Forces are a hip hop quartet from Detroit, Michigan consisting of E-Fav, Ilajide, L.A.Z. & Noveliss. They blew up at the beginning of 2012 with the viral sensation of their “Get No Better” music video but now 7 years later, they’re delivering their 5th full-length album. Things kick off with “Blaow”, where the 4 spit battle bars over a semi-jazzy boom bap beat.
