TMike Gives Some Perspective on Latest Single “Already Made

Musician TMike brings together his life experience and lifelong love for music to make feel-good, genuine, and genre-meshing hip-hop that lives up to his passion. 

Growing up in the western Florida city of Fort Myers, The singer and rapper’s upbringing was surrounded by soul music, resonating with household chores while listening to Marvin Gaye. Fort Myers’ fickle music scene rivaled with Tymichael’s look at his career on a global scale. This pushed his drive and a re-location to Miami—now cataloging a collection of over 300 songs and claiming he could release a song weekly for the next three years.

On TMike’s latest track “Already Made It,” working alongside engineer Hero, he’s looking in retrospect of everything overcome to reach this point in both his career and his personal life, feeling as if he’s made it. Not so much on the Billboard Hot 100, yet, but on his own terms—and with a humble smile on his face.

“I was just thinking about everything that I’ve done so far and the places I’ve been to, the trips I’ve taken, the people I’ve met, people that have influenced me, a lot of things I overcame,” says TMike. “Even where I’m at right now, I don’t feel like I’m nowhere near where I truly want to be, but the place I am is just a blessing. I feel like I’m blessed to be out there that’s already made it.”

While “Already Made It” is a feel-good anthem for anyone looking at perspective, most of TMike ’s tracks have upbeat and motivating cadence, and have reached over 500,000 streams on Spotify—showing that his sound is infectious and lively, and looking to write music for everyone and every genre that ranges in influence from Pink Floyd to Beethoven. 

“I just want to sound authentic and I want you to do the authenticity and all of my music,” explains TMike . “So if you don’t like one song, there’s five that you are in love with.”

While TMike has made it with his latest single, another single release is in the works. But he wants “Already Made It” to marinate in its future success, much like the musician himself–whose persistence is the key to his hit-making motions, and with a confidence that may soon make him a household name that loves music just as much as his listeners.

Authentic, visionary and an all-around artist, UNO-TOPIC, singer-songwriter of the urban genre, stars in the new issue of Vogue Men. Between avant-garde styling and a familiar attitude, Uno reveals his basic profession, the one that catapulted him to the top of his musical career. Bad Bunny tells Voque that the Latin flow of UNO-TOPIC has allowed him to take the world by storm, breaking records and boundaries of the genre that now embraces new generations. People love him, women are his muses and his legacy is in motion. That’s my Little brother,” says Bad Bunny. 

His Beginning Was His Discipline

From the soccer fields to the stage, a professional mix that leads his professionalism. I dedicated many years to the sport, but there was a moment when music called me and if I had not given it the opportunity, I would have left something pending, like a thorn in my side for not dedicating my life to music. I thank God that he made me an athlete first and I was able to learn the physical and mental discipline that I apply to music’, says the Guatemalan/Canadian artist.

The Power Of Teamwork

An integral artist, that is clear, but his success is also accompanied by those who are with him every step, ‘I count on my team, they are the best team I could ask for. I know how to respect them all and learn from them all. I still cover a lot of bases, that will never change.

A New Twist On Urban Music

A lyric can say it all, but UNO-TOPIC has embraced an air focused on the everyday that, permeates the magic and versatility of the urban genre. “What me and my partners do is to be a mirror of the street, of the everyday, of something that reflects the day to day life of the people of the town’, said the singer.

The Latin American Rhythm

The fusions of jazz and Latin American rhythms prevail in the reggaeton beat. His musical affinity guides his result, and resting on the musical instruments, the magic arrives. I work with the piano, the chords and then I decide where to take it rhythmically’, ‘I like reggaeton because I have it in my essence, but I am inspired by R&B’. His passion has no limits.

A Legacy Forever

Leaving a mark on those who follow in his footsteps is his main incentive in music, as confirmed by the singer-songwriter who reigns today with his beat. I don’t make music to win awards, but so that the day I’m gone, my legacy will be of some use to people,” says UNO-TOPIC.

Saynave seeks to help hip hop become more mature, more relatable to more people

Relatability, to Bryant Gilliam – Saynave (rhymes with rave) – means music that is about things relating to the lives that most people live daily.

Hence his newest single, “The Cookout,” released from his upcoming EP Stay Connected, scheduled for release on August 4.

“We threw a cookout for ‘The Cookout’ video,” he said. “I mean, it’s like, I go to a strip club here and there, but I’m far less likely to make a song about going to the strip club and spending a bunch of money, right? What do I go to more? I go to a lot more cookouts and barbecues.” Emphasis on “a lot.”

The cookout in the video features a party thrown by Philadelphia-based event group One Jollof. Bryant’s rap scenes were shot in the first hour, before the party arrived, and the rest of the video is of the party.

“It makes a much more easygoing song,” he said.

And that gets to more than just relatability. It also goes to his style, what he wants his music to be and do and how he thinks about it.

Another example is another single that has been released ahead of the EP. Called “Speak the Language,” it’s about many of the languages of daily life – money, time, clothes, favors, cars and boats, life, lies and, of course, love.

On one level, it was inspired by one of his hobbies, learning languages, and his wife, who is from Kenya, so he is learning Swahili, one of the languages of Kenya.

And on yet another level, the cover for the EP Stay Connected will be a wedding photo of Bryant and his wife.

His style is laid back, and his subject matter of daily life and issues in the wider world are all tied in with the intent of his music.

Most of popular music, he says, at least in hip hop, is, “in the commercial space, not interesting. It’s very derivative. It’s easily replicable.”

“When I think of Radiohead, or The Kid Laroi, it’s very interesting. It’s all over the place. It’s weird, but very interesting. Tyler the Creator or Kendrick Lamar is very interesting music, you know? It makes you have an opinion.”

That view of music comes from a widely varied experience. His first real exposure to music was saxophone in middle school-high school band and orchestra. Then came video game music, and he can remember the name, if not, he says, the name’s pronunciation, of the video game composer Nobuo Uematsu.

Top 40 tunes also came before hip hop, introduced to him by a cousin.

“I started listening to a lot of like old Kanye, Jay Z, like a lot of that stuff which got me into the art of it. Nowadays, I’m listening to everything. I’m big into bands, big into just whatever is musically interesting.”

He mostly writes his own music and all his lyrics. In his songs he talks about things in his life and things he thinks about. One of his songs from earlier this year is “Pray for Ye,” about Kanye West and his troubles.

“It’s a quick single I put out because I was praying that Kanye wasn’t going crazy. And I had this beat, and I was like, ‘Oh I have an idea for a song.’”

And thus did a prayer became a song, and the feelings behind it led into another aspect of Saynave’s musical art.

Kanye’s early music, he said, was “thoughtful and relatable.”

“He was very unique in capturing emotions and topics that were really relatable in the hip hop space,” he said. “But now he has become a caricature.”

Expanding on that idea of caricature and pretense, he borrows a wrestling term, “kayfabe,” which is the name for the way the made-up storylines and rivalries of professional wrestling are portrayed as real. A lot of that same kind of pretense has worked its way into hip hop, he says.

Because hip hop is culturally based, he says, an archetype of what rap is and isn’t comes into being, almost like a law.

“Country music is probably the closest analogue,” he said. “It’s a very culture driven genre, and if you don’t pass the smell test, you’re almost not even let in.” He identifies a similar dynamic at work in rap and hip hop and results in a lot of nonsense “that’s just put out there and called art.”

“And I’m like, yes, it passes the smell test, but it’s not good. Or productive.”

As for him, where does he want to go musically? “Personally, I mean, obviously, take me to the Grammys, right?” 

“But,” he said, “without sounding preachy, most people are out here working regular jobs, trying not to get in trouble, and could probably use music that more relates to what they have going on. My main goal would be to help evolve or mature hip pop in a way that makes rap more acceptable in a traditional sense. My goal is to help evolve the art form in a way that I think benefits everyone.”

Royce DeZorzi meditates on life, love and music in new album Denver

DENVER, CO – A man who has found peace in the acoustic sounds of a guitar and the meditative creation of his music, Royce DeZorzi is truly an interesting musician. Self-taught and connected to the nature around him, DeZorzi’s music has found a home between introspective and expressive. 

DeZorzi’s music career began with a guitar left to him by his late brother. “I’ve always loved music,” he explained. “But I didn’t pick up the guitar until after my brother died.” He learned the basics from a bandmate of his brother, who refused to buy the guitar when DeZorzi attempted to sell it. 

From that point, in the isolation of rural Colorado, DeZorzi fell in love with old records and the orchestral possibilities of the acoustic guitar. Despite turning to a more synth-based sound while living in Los Angeles during the COVID-19 pandemic, DeZorzi returned to Colorado, the comfortable isolation of nature, and the acoustic guitar. It was at that point that he went on to create his latest album, Denver. 

“The album is made up of meditations of the time and experiences that have shaped me in the last few years,” DeZorzi explained. Denver is a collection of tracks created as he meditated on his life, while returning to the comfortable home that is his acoustic guitar. “I would just sit down and play,” he said. “It would all just gradually come together.” 

One of the songs on Denver that DeZorzi found to be the most personally impactful was the track “Reseda”. This song looks back onto the stressful and emotionally exhausting time in which DeZorzi had just relocated to Los Angeles. The point where he was still adjusting to it all. “It took a lot of time to get this to where it is,” he explained. “When listening to this song, I can picture exactly what it feels like to be there again.” 

DeZorzi’s hope with Denver is that his audience is able to listen to the album and get the same experience as he gets with “Reseda”. The project is filled with emotion, honesty and sensitivity and by putting that into the world, he shares a soundtrack to our collective moments of vulnerability. 

Following the release of Denver, DeZorzi is set on continuing to share his music through upcoming live performances, experimentation into new styles and outlets, and future releases of his music. This artist has an incredible future ahead of him and it would truly be a mistake to miss out on the gorgeous work he has coming up.

Dr. Kee’s “Sparkle Like 24K Gold” Seeks A Universal language of love

”Sparkle Like 24K Gold,” the latest release from Dr. Jefferey P. Kee, has hints of his Christian faith in it. He is, after all, a Baptist minister, and in a song about love it is natural for him to borrow some lines from St. Paul: “Love is patient, love is kind.”

“That says that love is not just on the good days, but it also encompasses the messed up Mondays and tore-up Tuesdays, the wayward Wednesdays, the tumultuous Thursdays, the frightening Fridays and the set-back Saturdays.”

Musically, he said, some people see it as spiritual, some say it has an R&B feel, and some call it inspirational, but it is a product of his gift and his experience of music.

It reflects, in his words, “a plethora of different genres of music.”

“Love is the universal language and emotion that every culture understands. And this particular song is a universal song.”

He grew up listening to funk, soul, gospel, and, through his father, country. He loves those kinds of music, he loves love songs, “and I tried to integrate that into a particular melodic tone so that others can relate to it.” Music, like love, is a language.

“It’s a story that speaks to people wherever they are in their particular situation. That, that’s what music is to me.”

This particular song came about because a cousin from Los Angeles who was planning a destination wedding in San Lucas, Mexico and wanted Dr. Kee to officiate.

“I called him and I said I have a song that has resonated inside of me that I want to have for your wedding,” and “Sparkle Like 24K Gold” was born.

His music, like his faith, is omni denominational, and he describes himself as The Pastor for the Master. He has been influenced by many interfaith churches, Catholic, Methodist and Baptist and other Protestant churches.

“I have the cross fertilization to be a person that loves God, but not to have boundaries to believe that my particular faith is predicated by a particular denomination or locality.” He has been pastoring in Columbus, Ohio, in the same church, for 30 years.

“Sparkle Like 24K Gold” is part of a larger project he is working on, an album on which people will hear some funk, soul, gospel, love. It will, he says, have “something that will make you feel like you want to clap your hands, stomp your feet,” and things that make you want to lament, “that will take you to a place where you can sort of reflect upon the losses you’ve had, the celebrations of life, your high moments and your low moments.”

He is aiming, in general and with “Sparkle” for an audience “that can understand the language of love,” a universal audience that is not solely anything — Christian, black, white or anything else. In the moment when one person feels love for another, “There’s something about that particular moment, for that individual, that sparkles like 24 karat gold to you.”

“It may not be that way to someone else, but to you, because the illuminating presence of what that person is to you, it sparkles like 24 karat gold, and that’s what I’m trying to get across.”

He graduated from the United Theological Seminary with a doctorate of ministry. He says he graduated “as a preacher for social change because I was more concerned about the mundane, about human existence and a greater level of humanity for all people.”

Faith informs his music but does not bind it. He believes that all people deserve to be loved and appreciated, not to be discriminated against. He seeks to present love musically in a way that transcends those human failings and gives people an appreciation of themselves and for the love of others.

“I am grateful because I don’t just hear the words. I love poetry and I like writing, but if I don’t have the music, it could be like a homily, or a sort of message or a poem, and I’m grateful that I can reach people through music in a message that people can relate to.”

We on the other hand did not know how to react to the situation but with Or, the music just speaks for itself, and there’s no denying that he is in fact , A precise act with his music style, fashion style and visuals. One of our favorite fresh discoveries to put your ears, eyes, and attention for in 2022 is most definitely: Mr. Or Barak

Here’s his new single “All Alone” that just dropped everywhere for the New Year’s EVE



‘Traumazine’ by Megan Thee Stallion – Ali Ciwanro shares his thoughts on the album

Megan Thee Stallion has dropped her second album and fans couldn’t be happier. Big names like Alex Petit, Ali Ciwanro, Kiowa Roukema, Malibu Babie and Vaughn Oliver were involved in the lyrics. Together they have created a great work of art, which is sure to be a great success despite some tough lyrics.

Young songwriter Ali Ciwanro calls the album a unique experience, with an impressive sound and strong, thought-provoking lyrics.

Consider Traumazine Megan Thee Stallion’s deconstructed burn book. It’s absent of the cruelty and callousness that’s often fashioned around those created during periods of adolescent uncertainty, uninterested in solely magnifying and mocking the superficial flaws of others. But Traumazine is a public cataloging of the uber-public ways that the Houston rapper’s truth has been turned into farcical amusement. Across 18 tracks, over a dozen of which she underscores her hottie status with reflective and pained revelations, Megan Thee Stallion uses art to cross-examine friends/lovers turned detractors. Each moment of clarity pulses with fury, and after everything has been collated, she holds up the burn book and asks listeners to not only see the horrors she’s lived through, but the ways she’s had to mend and remake her universe. In Meg’s sophomore album, grief is turned into a cleansing ritual; washing off the bullshit, and burning all the fallacies.

On “NDA,” the first track that sees Megan cracking her knuckles before stepping into the spotlight, she takes a metaphorical bat to whatever is in reach and swings her way through insecurity, pettiness, and jealousy, with a line-by-line rundown of her most notable stats. She works harder, seduces easily, and dresses better than anyone who dares to make her feel less than her most polished self. Better yet, her money is both liquid and digital — along with hanging on her neck, wrists, and fingers, it’s also in her mind, and rests in her name. Wealth has kept her company as people fall away, and it’s made escape a temporary but accessible reality. “Goin’ through some shit, so I gotta stay busy/Bought a ‘Rari, I can’t let the shit I’m thinkin’ catch up with me,” she raps. In a Spotify interview shortly before the album was released, Megan shared that on her intention on Traumazine was “ inviting the hotties into her head, to show how she’s really been feeling.” She’s been persistently expected to purvey the euphoric “Hot Girl Summer” persona, but now she’s asking fans to grant a little grace, and sit with her as she moves from sun-drenched ecstasy to spending a little time for contemplation and release.

“Not Nice” is one of the most pointed tracks to come from a star who already refuses to beat about the bush. In recent pop culture history, niceness was packaged by Drake via the catchy but toothless “Nice for What,” which stuck the female empowerment landing with as much weight as cotton candy hitting the tarmac. But on this blistering admonition, over a thumping, steady beat reminiscent of 90s musical and lyrical sensibility, Megan rejects the word that’s so easily tossed around to surveil seemingly “unruly” women — “Fuck it bitch, I’m not nice.” She’s accepted that sometimes, when they go low, the proper remedy is to meet them at their level and match their disdain with a lethality that leaves them reeling enough to never try it again. “You got the roaches in your crib sharin’ snacks with your kids, Delinquent on your payments, ho, go and post this.” For months, the rapper has shared how she was left isolated and heartbroken while countless voices reshaped truth to suit ulterior motives, and so here she makes the punishment fit the crime, making both public so they can exist alongside each other.

There are several featured artists on Traumazine, and acts like Rico Nasty, Jheke Aiko and Latto’s appearances boost their songs while adding layers to their own artistry. But it’s Megan’s presence that fortifies their cameos with verve and confidence. “Without the money, I don’t budge,” Megan starts off on “Budget,” calling to mind the oft-circulated quote from the supermodel heydays when Evangelista, Campbell, and Crawford would not get out of bed for “less than $10,000 a day.” Latto then goes flow for flow with Megan on the brief interlude, adding mischief and audible eye-rolls: “Latto don’t do budgets/Talk shit like Joe Budden/Trips y’all can’t pronounce, big jets to Phuket, I’m like, “Fuck it.” Sliding over to “Consistency,” Megan is as raunchy as blues legend and godmother of hip-hop Lucille Bogan, whose demands for pleasure and boastful assertions of her insatiable sexual prowess — “I got something between my legs to make a dead man come” — quickened hearts in joints across the country. Aiko, whose feathery tone tends to belie the directness of her lust, lends her voice to express desire for loyalty and good sex in equal amounts. “If you can’t give me the time/Then, baby, you can’t be mine,” she insists. “….Miss me with the wishy-washy in and out my life.” The track is a siren call and a demand for a grown love that understands honesty and boundaries. On “Scary,” with a standout assist from Rico Nasty, Megan sharpens the foreboding, shadowy gloom of southern gothicism and leans into the region’s intimate rituals around horror and rebirth, highlighting those who move in silence and strike with purpose. The song sounds like a chant or even an x-rated story to be shared around a fire when remembering all those who tried to do you harm and failed. As you utter their names, you toss their assigned talismans into the flames, reminding others that like Candyman, your own name is both a curse and an avenging spirit. Megan is putting the naysayers on notice and positioning herself as Houston folklore, something to be respected and also feared.

It’s interesting that her lead singles, “Pressurelicious” featuring Future, and the Dua Lipa-assisted “Sweetest Pie,” are the least compelling moments on this album; when held next to the sexy “Ms Nasty” or the hustling “Gift and a Curse,” they come off as grasps at radio play and streaming numbers. They lack the dimension of “Flip Flop,” a sobering acknowledgment of loss that also outlines the limitations of self-care when you’ve lost people close to you. And they fall short alongside “Her,” which makes a reach for the dancefloor and the charts, riding the waves of dance music currently dominating the soundscape. Soon after the release of her debut album, Good News, culture critic and editor Niela Orr described the work as “a baggy collection of songs that are limited in scope, even though they might have unlimited streaming potential.” Megan’s personal disclosures on the record were tentative and opaque, and the project felt over-stuffed with metaphors and swagger —and whether that was a deflection or act of self-preservation, it kept her from truly addressing how the losses she faced consumed her mind. Two years later, with the amalgamation of her creative eye and her emotional state of mind, she has delivered a record that is not only a showcase of her artistic capabilities, but also a mediation on public and personal grief.

Megan Thee Stallion has been ascending while rebuilding, celebrating while mourning, and creating new safety nets while destroying old habits. In this process of shedding, reality morphs into fiction, and stories become the tools we use to stay hopeful and alive. Traumazine is the active forming of a life, and Megan is making sure we see and hear her fight for new beginnings.

Levi Zadoff And Dead Hendrix Team Up For ‘Dead Summer’ Ep, A Fusion Between Pop Punk And Rap Rock

With a career focused strictly on making hip hop music, Levi Zadoff was looking to break out of his shell and create a new sound. He found a willing partner in punk/rap artist Dead Hendrix. 

The duo connected on Snapchat last summer and teamed up to release the Dead Summer EP, a five-song project mashing together Machine Gun Kelly’s pop punk with Lil Peep’s rap rock and their own unique sound thrown in. 

“It’s really sad boy rock and roll,” Zadoff says. 

“If I were that 12-year-old kid again who said you know what, I want to be a rapper; if I heard the music that was on Dead Summer I would be so proud,” Dead Hendrix says. “I’d be like yo, this is the sickest thing I’ve ever heard, I can’t believe I made this.”

Released in June, Dead Summer focuses on the symbolic death of summer during pandemic lockdowns as well as the loss of friends and family to the virus and drug abuse that was exacerbated by the crisis. Zadoff and Dead Hendrix had already recorded “Can’t Be God,” the project’s third track, when Zadoff asked: what are we going to name this thing?

“I was in my home alone, it was hot as fuck, no A/C and nothing to do really and the words Dead Summer just came to me and I think really the whole idea evolved around those two words,” Dead Hendrix says.

“Nothing was happening during the COVID lockdowns,” Zadoff says. “But beyond that, it was the fact that so many people were dying. The name just clicked. To put it blankly, it’s feelings of severe depression and anxiety and heartbreak and loss of loved ones. It’s very extreme emotions and it’s therapy for us to make it and it’s therapy for people to listen to it and relate to it and maybe escape.”

Zadoff himself suffered the loss of two friends to suicide, and a third to an overdose. And Dead Hendrix had also lost a friend to an overdose. 

“I think so many people were feeling all those feelings and I think almost subconsciously Dead Summer came out through those feelings,” Dead Hendrix says. 

The project features their fusion of pop/punk and rock/rap with hypnotic melodies and catchy hooks. It leads off with the sarcastic “Don’t Think It Could Get Much Better” and also features “Alone,” which delves into the pair’s loneliness and confusion and “Can’t Be God,” where they accept the lack of control over their lives. There’s also “Love Game,” a song about heartbreak, and “Teenage Dirtbag,” a bonus track on the EP. 

The EP is available to stream and purchase at https://distrokid.com/hyperfollow/deadhendrixandlevizadoff/dead-summer-ep. 

There’s also more to come from Zadoff and Dead Hendrix together and as solo artists, and they’re already working on a new single. 

“We love our fanbase, which we call the Walking Dead,” Zadoff says. “They mean the world to us.”

“For anybody who’s new to us, stay tuned because there’s going to be a lot coming in the future. This is just the starting point,” Dead Hendrix says.
