I got Soul Remix - Funktastic Players - Music Review

Funktastic Players is a project of David Williams. It’s the perfect blend of 70s soul with 80s hip hop and contemporary Jazz. William got his start in the 80s working for a record label called Jamm City Records where he wrote and produced for several groups. In the 90s he worked for Eco USA, BNTB Studio and MADD Trax Records. While at MADD Trax Records, Williamsproduced MADD Trax volume 1 and 2 (a collection of club and hip-hop instrumentals). He also created his own sample collection called ‘M.a.d.d Trax Representing Hip-Hop!’ with eight CDs in the collection. By the mid-90s he and two of his childhood friends opened a studio called Platinum Vibe. Production work slowed down but he was still able to produce a spoken word project for a female artist, The Prophetess. You can truly see his expertise shine in his music.
Funktastic Players really lives up to the name with this I Got Soul remix. Their classic R&B Soul sounds with the funky saxophone, my favourite kind, blends well with the subtle hip hop flair present in the record scratch. It’s an easy listen giving the perfect balance of hype with the sax and calm with the use of the bass and spacing in the music. The whole composition keeps you drawn in, like snake charmers to a snake – it makes you want to groove. Not to mention the nostalgia when the smooth tones of the voice come in. Give this one a listen when you’re feeling for a soulful nostalgia.

GEM is to headline the Los Angeles Power Women Summit in December, bringing this new style of medical-music to the masses. She has been able to make use of her time in isolation: perfecting her EP, creating a YouTube channel and working on a plethora of collaborations with other global artists. The new single, If I’m Honest, is arguably the first of its kind. It has been specifically produced in the key of B. The musical note B is associated with the crown chakra, the 7th chakras in the Buddhist tantric system. Buddhists believe that by listening to music in this key, corresponding to the crown chakra, it can heal and awaken the listener, helping to release stored negative energy and energetic blockages in the body.

Michael Coleman Is back with another Anthem!

  WE HAD A CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH MICHAEL COLEMAN, READ WHAT HE HAD TO SAY ABOUT HIS MUSICAL JOURNEY!   Michael Coleman, where are you from and what's it like in your hometown and how did you get the nickname "The Metropolitan Cowboy"?   I was actually born and raised in San Diego, California.  San Diego is just an awesome town although like everywhere else in California, it costs a fortune to live there.  My nickname, “The Metropolitan Cowboy” actually comes from a television project I was doing a few year’s back. I wrote and produced an adult-oriented sketch comedy show and since I was always dressed with a cowboy hat on and looked metrosexual we decided that should be the name of the show and my brand and I have been called that ever since.   How long have you been songwriting and where do you find the inspiration?   I’ve been writing since I was a kid, however I didn’t decide to take it seriously until I had a milestone birthday , I won’t tell you which one and it wa
