Safe to say Becoming Phill is the only southern African electro/funk/boogie producer in the game right now. He won a Namibian Music Award a few years back for some hiphop records then went straight into this kind of sound, and here’s the album – Electrum. It’s a mix of electro, funk & r&b that is doing very well on the dancefloors in Namibia right now. It features vocals from Namibian singers Shishani and Dantago, and guitar from Christian Polloni, who has worked with Papa Wemba and Youssou N’Dour.

New single - Forgiven by Marga Lane

2016-11-12 07:37:50 UTC

Unnamed 2

Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Marga Lane creates authentic and heartfelt songs with an emotional rawness rarely found in music today. Upon graduating from the esteemed Berklee College of Music in Boston, native New Yorker, Lane moved to Los Angeles to further pursue a career as a professional recording artist and songwriter.

In 2015, Marga Lane began compiling what would be her most ambitious and personal project to date, a five-track story of love and loss. “I write a lot of love songs and love is synonymous with belief. I would hope my music inspires people to have a belief in the power of love. Whether it's love for yourself or love for another. You can believe that you are meant to be with a certain person or believe that you can overcome circumstances because you love yourself enough to,” confides Lane. Musically, the forthcoming EP entitled Undressed is powerful in its simplicity and an anomaly in a world dominated by overly produced music. Undressed, which was produced by fellow Berklee alumni Matt Bobb, showcases raw acoustic guitar, soulfully layered vocals and distinctive melodies.

Opening single “Thinking About You” begins with upbeat jazz guitar and features Motown inspired vocals. The song is a celebration of love in its truest form, a new relationship and the hope and bliss that accompany it. While “Forgiven” takes on a more sullen and melancholic tone, a beautiful ballad of regret featuring Lane’s stunning vocals.

Marga Lane has found success touring throughout the US including performing at fashion weeks and singing the national anthem at over 10 NBA and MLB games. She has enjoyed the support from popular recording stars and industry veterans including Lance Bass who featured her on his SiriusXM radio show “Dirty Pop”. Marga Lane is looking forward to the next chapter in her exciting musical journey.

Undressed is set for release December 2nd, 2016 worldwide.

Review for 52 by Orellana

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
