Scottie Jax Presents ‘The Cop and The Con Man’ (Full Movie 2017)

Independent hiphop artists and aspiring film maker Scottie Jax has just released the first of hopefully many short running films. The independent artist flexes his creativity in the 30 min short action film ‘The Cop and The Con Man’. Check it out on Youtube.


Fixed Fate – Unplugged

Fixed Fate sculpt songs with true tenderness on the inviting sound of “Unplugged”. With “Unplugged” Fixed Fate appears to go on a mystical journey, one full of hope and determination. Careful arrangements recall Alice in Chain’s EP “Sap” for these are pieces whose haunting melodies and highly articulate thoughtful stories. Stories fixate on the tales of the underdog, those truly trying to overcome. Throughout it all Fixed Fate choose a stripped down, intimate sound that aims straight for the soul. Little flourishes go a long way from the kind intermingling of piano to the at times manic energy of the guitars. Easily the highlight of the sound comes from the fiery furious vocals that rise above, looking towards the sky.

On “Flower” Fixed Fate begin things on a regal tone. From such atmospheric beginnings, the song settles into a naturalistic rhythm. Rather reflective, the song is one of yearning for someone truly special. Delicate to its very core is the surreal scope of “Water” whose glistening guitar work adds to its impressionistic fervor. Gradually the song comes into focus with each reiteration. Showing off their impressive knack for storytelling is the collection highlight, the tale of “Billy”. Layer upon layer of guitar work adds to the spirited, unhinged performance. Tapping into a seemingly sprawling world is the ornate “Frostbite” whose tragic undertones end the collection with true style.

 

Sung with the utmost of heart and passion, Fixed Fate’s “Unplugged” has a timeless classic sound to it.

Danny Baxley – Crossed A Line

Danny Baxley mixes spoken poetry with dreamy pop on the beautiful “Crossed A Line”. Blurred grooves glide by with such grace over the course of the piece. Rhythms feel addictive in nature as they anchor the song’s more surreal aspects. Almost psychedelic at times the song seems to reflect upon modernity, on relationships, and the social norms that inform a person’s life. Lyrics rest at the very heart and center of the track, with the distorted vocals adding an important almost shoegaze element into the mix. By offering distant sounding vocals, Danny Baxley adds to the otherworldliness that informs the piece.

Everything starts immediately. Graceful guitar work adorns the track as the song unfurls with such style. Neatly tying together pop, alternative rock, with elements of dance thrown into the mix the song has a kaleidoscopic, all-encompassing sound to it. Volume is an absolute must for this is a song that should be felt as much as heard. Slowly but surely the song’s gradual buildup becomes ever larger, with the layers of sound swirling around in such a colorful display. Texturally rich, the way that Danny Baxley lets the melody neatly collide with this lyricism creates a song that positively teems with life. Towards the latter half of the song the piece’s mantra grows and grow until it becomes all consuming.

With “Crossed A Line” Danny Baxley creates an infectious, welcoming sound one whose ornate architecture draws the listener into a whole other world.

EVE ON VOX – ‘Rough Time’ And ‘Since You’ve Been Gone’

Professional Vocalist and Model, EveOnVox has enjoyed a career that spans over fifteen years. Starting out, C&C Music Factory selected Eve to tour as their lead vocalist after her powerful vocal audition beating out over 150 candidates. In 2003, Naked Music featured her softer tones on ‘Inside’, produced by Dave Warren, ‘A Beautiful Tomorrow’, and others produced by Blue Six. She has also shared the stage with Martin Luther McCoy, Caron Wheeler, and Japanese pop artist Toshi Kubota.

Eve has worked extensively as a model for such names as Nickelodeon where she posed as Cher’s body double, DKNY, Sony, Glamour Magazine and Rite Aid to name a few. She was the face of a 7UP national commercial, featured on The View, and has walked the runway in the Final Tributary Show in Milan for Gianni Versace shorty after his tragic death.

A resident New Yorker of Caribbean origin, from Roseau, Dominica, Eve consistently pours her passion into music as a vocalist and a songwriter leading her to launch her sound and message in a music production project called EveOnVox.

One by one Eve will be releasing a few tracks titled ‘Vent Songs’. The first release called Rough Time went through many renditions starting off as a Neo Soul, morphing into a pop RnB. Currently this live acoustic version with guitar/percussionist Guitaro 5000, brings a unique Rock/Funk sound to the song. Eve’s vocals are strong and vibrant. Rough Time is catchy enough to warrant a fourth or fifth listen.

The second song we listened to, ‘Since You’ve Been Gone’, is a bit sweet. There’s a touch of Reggae, but it has more of a Retro-Soul flavour. Eve’s vocals are mellow but strong with an intense drive behind them. The instrumental is smooth and relaxing containing every element of a hit soul single. Since You’ve Been Gone is a heartfelt song which truly showcases Eve’s passion and emotion.

Check out EveOnVox on Facebook or visit eveonvox.com for updates on her music and performances.
