Dr Jaymz is the first missionary to become an EDM artist inspired by David Guetta-Zedd and Joel Corry!

Gospel has always been synonymous with dance music. Think back to early Motown or Soul, and you will see the straight line to the dance floor. Now as the world turns and searches for new hope through the Word, Dr Jaymz is bringing that underlying sense of Peace, Love, Unity, harmonies and beats to the EDM experience.
A British minister who has preached to 80,000 people, and who has performed as a DJ Producer to thousands more, Dr Jaymz has tapped into a feeling that replaces the loneliness, depression and despair that can be felt through a soulless dive into hedonism. Praise is his game, and combined with infectious beats and soaring melodies, he has been leading the charge to a new dawn of fulfillment.
 

PRESS RELEASE:

Artist Releases Song to Tackle Growing Depression Among Youth 

BOSTON, Mass. — Dr Jaymz, a British artist now living in the USA, releases new single ‘Set Me Loose.’ As the world’s first missionary turned EDM artist, his inspiring new release tackles the growth in depression among youth. According to the CDC’s most recent report, rates of psychological distress among youth, including anxiety and depression, have increased. It’s clear that people need a sense of love and purpose to tackle these emotions. Dr Jaymz is doing just that by merging music with an uplifting message that can overcome feelings of sadness and brokenness.

In his latest release, Dr Jaymz delivers a message of freedom and deliverance, where he infuses iconic house instrumentals with gospel lyrics, lovingly crafted to comfort and heal the lonely and broken. Ethereal synths, pulsing keys, and powerhouse vocals collide, for a straight up danceable house sound reminiscent of hits by Joel Corry, Clean Bandit and David Guetta.

People who struggle with depression often feel like they have no one who cares for them or understands their feelings. However, through his uplifting single, Dr Jaymz moves the hearts of listeners with lyrics of hope and care, showing people that God loves them. The vocalist sings, I thought that I was ok but then you came and showed me a life that is a better way. Everyone is looking for a better life, and this song highlights the everlasting life found in a relationship with God through Jesus Christ. The chorus ‘You set me loose, now I wanna dance,’ sums up the vibe of the song and will surely move audiences to their feet. 

Mastered by the same studio that brought the hit single ‘Head and Heart’ by Joel Corry, ‘Set Me Loose’ is set to become another hit that will captivate listeners with a fresh UK House sound that’s become increasingly popular among music listeners worldwide.

Dr Jaymz is available for interviews to share with your audience his uniquely creative and timely approach for battling depression through music.

Brooklyn band Social Robot’s sophomore album “Outreach Program”

Social Robot is a friendly artificial life form that just wants to be polite and play guitar, but is deeply worried about the fate of the universe. It keeps a stiff upper lip about it though. Social Robot’s retro-inspired sophomore album “Outreach Program” features songs about technology, alienation, and hope over synthwave and 80s rock grooves.
“Brooklyn band Social Robot’s sophomore album “Outreach Program” brings tapedeck 80s synthwave vibes as vocalist Bayard Russell sweetly skewers the attention economy and data overload” says Nagamag Magazine.
“US outfit showcase their debut album with this smooth and sweeping pop-rock delight, with hints of The 1975”, said Mystic Sons of Social Robot’s debut album “The Botz Sessions.”
Social Robot is a sci-folk band based in Brooklyn, led by songwriter and vocalist Bayard Russell.
Lead – Bayard Russell
Drums – Jason Lang
Keys – Dave Florey
Guitar – Mike Muller
Bass – Andrew Gilchrist-Scott
Social Robot is the musical project of Bayard Russell. Bayard grew up in the suburbs of Indiana, influenced equally by The Beatles and Ice Cube. Classically trained in piano from age four, he discovered the guitar in high school and his passion for pop music blossomed. He moved to NYC after graduating from Dartmouth College with a major in philosophy and a minor in music. He has previously written for and performed with the bands Karess, Clean Slate, Funkelstiltskin, The Very Nerve, Matt Jones Band, Negative Ken, The Botz, Mark from 3A, Blindfolds Five, and Atlantic Animals. He has a solo album “Selftitled” available on CD Baby and iTunes, about which Neufutur Magazine has said, “All that individuals need to do is stick the album in and be placed on clouds of indie rock that will float them along for the better part of an hour.”
PRESS RELEASE:

Brooklyn-based outfit Social Robot goes back to the future with an 80s-inspired pop-rock album “Outreach Program”, released April Fools Day (SocialRobot.HearNow.com).  Inspired by Talking Heads and David Bowie, lead singer Bayard Russell sings about technology and alienation over grooves that invoke Erasure, Electric Youth, and Anoorak.

What reviewers said about Social Robot’s albums so far:

  • “Brooklyn band Social Robot’s sophomore album “Outreach Program” brings tapedeck 80s synthwave vibes as vocalist Bayard Russell sweetly skewers the attention economy and data overload” says Nagamag Magazine.
  • “US outfit showcase their debut album with this smooth and sweeping pop-rock delight, with hints of The 1975”, said Mystic Sons of Social Robot’s debut album “The Botz Sessions.”

What reviewers said about Bayard Russell’s solo album Selftitled:

  • “Russell delivers simple, catchy songs with honest lyrics straight from his broken heart. He effortlessly takes what most of us would consider as bad situations and makes light of them, and in doing so he creates a responsive bond of some sort with his listeners.” -HotIndieNews.com
  • “Mr. Russell sings in a warm, intimate style that avoids in-your-face anger or a passive aggressive demand you love him as a fan. “Living at My Mom’s” laments his lack of foresight in one failed relation, and “I Will Chase You” leads him into just such another learning experience. You may not learn much from Bayard yourself, but listening to him grope his way through life is a calming experience.” – Ink9
  • “Here is some deliciously sweet indie pop from NY artist Bayard Russell — think John Mayer meets The Postal Service…some very honest lyrics that make you take light of a situation that would otherwise cause you to shudder in pain.” – AudioDrums.com
  • “Should stardom befall on Russell, and there’s no reason to see why it won’t, this debut is a glaring reason for him to keep the music coming from his bedroom, as well as his heart.” -Northeast Performer Magazine

Hello Fiasco

The world of music has always been spiced up when exceptional artists come along and surprise us. Once again, the world of music has been blessed by Hello Fiasco. Hello Fiasco is a fire-brand Pop Rock group of five that comes from both Canada and the USA. They are on the rise and without flattering them too much, Hello Fiasco is great! Their tracks have tons of lyrical quality and their overall sound is epic. Apart from the uniqueness that can be found in their tone, you might think they are Cold Play.

Their debut album titled “Find the Shoreline” is an absolute worldie and so is the first single from the album: “Hold me Close.” “Hold me Close” is not just a hit song in my opinion; it goes beyond that. It is a banger and a mix of indescribable artistic beauty all at once. The highly-rated and emerging band were fortunate enough to have worked with some of the best of producers and sound engineers in the music business, and the result is songs like “Hold Me Close.” Much to the delight of fans, topafricmusicvideo did an interview with Hello Fiasco, and this is what they had to say about themselves:

The song “Hold Me Close” is flavored with rhythmic synth beats, well timed rimshots and drum kicks, beautiful piano syncopation and a powerful but sonorous voice to match it all. At first, the song starts with a syncopation of synth beats as the voice of Hello Fiasco emerges into the background.

Fast forward to the end of the first verse, there is a moment of beauty, as the song explodes and spirals into the chorus. The sudden wave of sound hits differently and sends you straight to cloud 9. Click the link below to stream the track.

Hold Me Close Lyrics

Lyrically, “Hold me close” is a masterpiece and can be found on Hello Fiasco’s official website. Overall, the hook of the song “We do the things that we’ve done over and over before, a new experience is all that I’m asking you for” paints the perfect picture of the what the song is trying to say. After all, we all remember that feeling of being locked inside with our partners during COVID, and we also remember how the whole experience of COVID caused strain on our personal relationships. Even more so, we also remember that feeling of wanting to escape and do something outside. This video is a beatiful representation of that sentiment.

Below is the lyric of the song

[verse 1]

Why don’t we step outside -Take a car ride

Why don’t we catch a flick – Maybe we will click

Like we used to way back when we were new

We do the things that we’ve done over and over before

A new experience is all that I’m asking you for

[chorus]

Hold me close and help me remember

Can you hold me close like there’s no other

I wish you would hold me close like there’s nothing else

[​verse 2]

Should I have shared the shame

Have I been wrong to blame

My courage it comes in waves

And then it pulls away

I never say a thing – I never say a thing

​We do the things that we’ve done over and over before

A new experience is all that I’m asking you for

​[Chorus]

Can you hold me close and help me remember

Can you hold me close like there’s no other

I wish you would hold me close like there’s nothing else

Can you hold me close and help me remember

Can you hold me close like there’s no other

I wish you

I wish you would hold me close like there’s nothing else

Like there’s nothing else

Hold Me Close Video​

On YouTube, the official video of Hold Me Close has recorded over one hundred thousand views since it premiered in May. The video has also received a lot of positive reviews from fans and music lovers alike. Visuals of the hit track involve alternating scenes of a couple who are struggling, but eventually they find their way to happiness. It’s great that you get to see the band performing the song in different scenes. All of this was somehow crammed into 3 minutes and 42 seconds of absolute delight.

Here is the video below

“Born Alone Die Alone” talks about a true fact of life which is that we are born alone and we will die alone. Duvee’s message in this song is crystal clear and resonates with those who understand the concept of “Man in the Mirror”. The man in the mirror doesnt wait for things to happen, he makes them happen.

Most people worry so much about others but Mr. Duvee Davis is telling them to worry more about themselves.

Duvee’s rap style comes accross in a two step trap beat. One minute he is tongue twisting, the next minute he is rapping.

Aktu el Shabazz Is A Lyrical Genius

The track “Buttermilk” took me way back to 1998 when Mos Def & Talib Kweli released the album titled “Black Star”. “Aktu el Shabazz” sounds exactly like a mixture of Mos Def & Talib Kweli put together. Immediately after hearing 30 seconds of the track, my mind and soul went straight back to 1998 Texas Southern University which was the school I attended and I truly had an out of body experience.

Buttermilk” brings back the euphoria and nostalgic feeling I had back in those school days when I would be driving in my Ford expedition with my hip hop music blasting really high from the car speakers and everyone on campus staring at me as if I was crazy. “Aktu el Shabazz” must be a reincarnation from this era because his voice and style of rap truly takes you back to the 90s.

The track is smooth and cool to any listeners ears as the baseline drops and “Aktu el Shabazz” drops his lyrical genius right on the beat. He starts the track with the hook which says “smooth like a buttermilk biscuit” and then drops a verse which is truly smoother than a Buttermilk biscuit. He further went on to dribble our minds with his rhythmic words and melodic flow. He truly can rap better and faster than most of the popular rappers we know.           

This is true hip hop at its best and a true rapper who spits really good verses that make alot of sense. He will have you glued to the radio all day long just with his slick voice, thoughtful words, and banging beats.  I have no doubt in my mind that he was heavily influenced by rappers like Lauryn Hill and Common
Dont only take my words for it but please listen to the track on Spotify and judge for yourself.
