Matt James Mega is a unique producer from LA/NY producing multiple genre’s from hip hop/ to chill pop. What makes Matt’s production so unique is that each track is shaped around multiple acapella’s. After listening to his new 4 track E.P for free here. My favorite track has become The Balancing Act featuring vocals from Bruno Mars, Adele, Yours Truly, The 2010 Harvard-Radcliffe Veritones, Northwestern Undertones, Lykke Li, Naya Rivera (Glee), Death Cab for Cutie, Bjork, The Sound of Music (original cast). Yes this is a lot of vocals but somehow the track seems to flow smoothly with Matt James Mega’s great production skills. Enjoy this track for free below and make sure to support Matt James Mega on Facebook, he’s a brand new artists!
I’ve been waiting an awfully long time, it seems like, for The Lower Class to release their album, Wingfield. Fortunately, the album is set to drop in a couple of weeks on August 31st. Until then, check out the visuals for their first single off of Wingfield, The Sound in the Soul. Like what you hear? You should follow it up with their second single, The Proof. Yeah, that should hold you over until Wingfield drops.
The Lower Class – The Sound in the Soul by The Lower Class
The first comparison that comes to mind when trying to describe Juiceboxxx’s sound, are the Beastie Boys. While some may simply pass him off as a mere copy cat of the great trio, Juiceboxxx’s music is so much more than just a Beastie Boys ripoff act. His debut album, I Don’t Wanna Go Into the Darkness, is so punk that it immediately transcends into everything but punk. Literally every sort of genre and decade, in some form, is crammed into Juiceboxxx’s album. You’ll hear elements of funk, new wave, electronic, disco, psychedelia, and so, so much more. So really, rather than a comparison to the Beastie Boys, Juiceboxxx’s music seems more appropriate to be compared with N*E*R*D’s work. Much like a majority of N*E*R*D’s catalog, I Don’t Wanna Go Into the Darkness becomes one giant genre breaker, and throws everything into one raw sound that’s made to get a party going. Juiceboxxx’s raps give off pure energy, and his live show must be a completely insane experience. So whether you choose to compare I Don’t Wanna Go Into the Darkness to Beastie Boys or N*E*R*D albums, all that really matters is that you’re already putting Juiceboxxx into the same league as those greats.
