Showcase Your Music, 'Your Beats': *B~Free* '9 to 5' Remix Ft. Klassik


Addictive, Socially Conscious Hip Hop Soul


B~Free
Here's another great edition to the ever-popular 'Your Beats' series.  RnB / Neo-Soul singer-songwriter and producer *B~Free* teams up with rapper Klassik for a remix of her addictive single '9 to 5'.  About the track: 

'(*B~Free*) sings of the trials & sacrifices we often endure to make ends meet, and the ultimate effect it can have on life and dreams.  With soulful productions & vocals strategically intertwined with Kendrick Lamar's Member's Only, *B~Free* teams up with renowned Milwaukee lyricist Klassik to deliver the summertime hit...a vivid example of the quality work from the songstress.'

Agreed.  *B~Free* has a great voice and the self-penned track shows that she is of the India Arie, Erykah Badu, Lauren Hill school of creating music that can make the listener not only move, but also think and feel too.

Klassik is a charismatic MC who immediately catches the listener's attention.  His animated flow is a great introduction and contrasts with *B-Free*'s measured delivery very nicely.  The Bad-Boy style jacking of a hip hop beat for the remix adds to the track's welcome 90's feel.

The original '9 to 5' features on the singer's highly acclaimed indie release 'Open Mic, Open Heart' from last year.  The project is of consistently high standard; neo-soul joints with big boom bap drums sit next to classy, piano-based ballads like 'U Would Think' and the haunting 'Blank'. Her compositional and singing skills shine throughout.       

Props to Klassik, and many thanks for getting in touch *B~Free*, you've got yourselves some new fans over here at The New Beat Maker.

The Theory For Our Revenge 'OBORO'

REVIEW: Japanese multimedia art duo make a great first impression with their mix of industrial, trap and operatic pop The following is a paid for review and post, via humanhuman (see below).  It is always an honour and a pleasure to receive new music to check out and review; especially  when it's as enjoyable a listening experience as this first offering from The Theory For Our Revenge is. The Theory For Our Revenge are COLD FAITH and Jhas; a Japanese music production, fashion stylist and visual art duo The Theory For Our Revenge are COLD FAITH and Jhas; a Japanese music production, fashion stylist and visual art duo. Their debut single ,'OBORO', is a slice of experimental electro-trap / operatic-art-pop. Starting with an industrial sounding chugging and churning, the track moves into frosty, haunting melodies. It's in these opening bars that the only potential hiccup occurs. Around the 0:38 and 1:12 marks there's a jagged synth whistle which i

Objects In Orbit 'Panoramas'

REVIEW :  The New Beatmaker favourite changes his name, hones his craft on potential best album of 2020 Producer, Sound Engineer, Musician and Videographer Objects In Orbit has been a favourite of the site since 2013. Whilst there is not a single bad project in the catalogue of the artist formerly known as Evil Alex, he has evolved and improved almost constantly from one project to the next. He is a master of sonic suspense with many of his projects sounding perfectly at home in an art installation or art-house cinema. His trademark style mixes hip hop born sample-based techniques and 4/4 beat composition along with jazz influenced time signatures and experimentation. He often incorporates eerie, industrial stylings and at times dissonant tones.  Whilst predominantly instrumental, Objects In Orbit finely weaves into layers of musical samples either long stretches of dialogue, which make the listener feel as though they are eavesdropping on private conversation, or snip
