'Calling Me', 'Run' and 'Richest Man in The World' have already been featured, reviewed and added to mix tapes by numerous blogs and digital magazines.

Midnight Mystery Club is a departure from the typical House styles that David Newell has been working in for the last few years. Known for helping pen such hits as 'The Chase' by The Shapeshifters. 'Reason or Rhyme' is a return to his roots and his first love with a more Alternative, Funk, and Rock vibe.
This new album also marks the first full album collaboration with Producer Michael Gray. Gray, known for being one-half of Full Intention has also had a solo career carved by massive House hits as well. Full Intention has received decades of success and even managed a Grammy nod for their work with George Michael.
Together with Michael Gray's direction, Midnight Mystery Club has crafted an album that surprises and delights. 'Reason or Rhyme' features 10 new original tracks packed to the rafters with hooks and melodies sure to find their way into hearts and minds the world over.
The Great Long Distance is an audible recollection of the first 12 months of a long distance relationship, including the highs and lows and moments in between. It is a journal without words, each of the 12 tracks representing each month respectively. Inspired by the format of NIN's "Ghosts I-IV", the album is a sonic tapestry of different moods and themes, with various recurring motifs and the subtle melding of synthesizer and samples; the result something not quite classical, ambient or electronic - rather, an eclectic blend of the three. For fans of Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm and later Ulver
In order to excel in the independent music industry, an act has to define itself as especially unique with a sound quite unlike anything else in the community. This is a tall order, one that isn’t easily filled by acts entering variations of rock music due to the immense amount of bands flooding the scene right now. Palehorse/Palerider, a “doomgaze” trio from Denver, has released an EP entitled ‘Burial Songs’ that does a surprisingly superb job at separating itself from the pack. Let’s delve into it.
Even though the independent rock scene is quite inundated with new acts, there’s always a welcome place for an outfit that changes the formula enough to be consistently interesting and worth taking notice of. The New York-based alternative rock group Voices from Deep Below attempts to do just that, fusing together a variety of styles into a surprisingly coherent sound. Their new record, “I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear”, is a five song album that navigates alt-rock, experimental, and borderline metal and progressive influences all at the same time.
