Andrew Mancilla conjures that heady mix of pheromones, cocktails, and infectious beats that envelope you in a dance club. His soulful falsetto leads the charge through a fantasyland. “Ultimately, my new record Subtractive Color, is about fun, love, and youthful excitement. It’s about taking a limited set of emotions and creating a broad spectrum of vividly intense ones. Thus, the title.”
A pre-fame Lady Gaga was a creative catalyst for Andrew. Despite showing promise early on as an adept multi-instrumentalist, versatile and competent on trumpet, baritone sax, piano, and guitar, he lacked focus and discipline. The pair casually worked together while attending NYU. “During college, I was floating, searching for what I wanted to do. She had her stuff together and it inspired me,” Andrew recalls.
The 10-track album bursts open with, “Rewire,” an intoxicating slice of sleek R&B. Other standouts include “It Wasn’t Me,” the silken slow-burn jam which, features upcoming hip-hop artist Decora whose vocals bring a vulnerability to the song’s engrossing narrative. “That is about the follies of young love—missteps in relationships that can poison them forever.” Andrew’s playfulness as a lyricist is in full swagger on “Tell Her” which he opens with the line: I ain’t her type/but I ain’t afraid/She’s asks for a light/ I gave her my name. “I Can’t Believe Her” is a retro-futuristic delight that hits that sweet spot between the Jackson 5 and Justin Timberlake.
Andrew is taking Subtractive Color on the road with select dates in the northeast and a performance at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.

People Born Under The “Scorpio” Sign Should Listen To Ivoree Xavier’s Song
The Los Angeles-based emerging R&B singer Ivoree Xavier dedicates his newest track “Scorpio” to those of you who are born between October 23rd and November 21st. Astrologers describe them as passionate, brave, magnetic, and intensionally emotional. While others think they are possessive, jealous, and highly controlling people. Well, in the case of this song, the artist felt inspired by toxic relationships with Scorpio dudes where his love for them wasn’t reciprocated. Press play below.
As an astrology aficionado, I know that Scorpios always leave their mark no matter the circumstances. Most of them are in a process of transformation, and this could lead to misunderstandings, especially with their lovers. Of course, the good proof of this is Ivoree’s sensitive lyrics and as a Virgo, he knows how to analyze every little thing. Clearly, some zodiac signs go well together, while others don’t. Beyond the positive or negative traits of Scorpios, I think his verses are somehow relatable, plus, the laidback groove is totally eargasmic. Enjoy it.

“Friends” Is The Mellow, Soulful Pop Debut From ROME
If you’re not familiar with Romina’s music, “Friends” is a good soulful pop song to get started. The Houston-based singer and songwriter makes her grand debut under her new ROME alias. In fact, she’s stepping in the right direction after a longstanding career in different girl groups and on side projects (Romy Lombardo/Romy Lynn). The necessity of change in welcoming fresh ideas always gives good results. Clearly, “Friends” provides such a good example of her initiative, hitting over 8K streams via Spotify.
On the one hand, her gentle voice is perfect for the mellow beats. While on the other, genuine lyrics express deep feelings of jealousy and disappointment. It’s kinda like a deeply personal story, and I love how she’s completely upfront about it. Moreover, its enveloping dreaminess is packed with sincere emotions into almost three and a half minutes. I feel like this tune got me so involved in her music that I now need to see what happens next… Fortunately, the evolving Pop artist confirms there will be the second single in October, so stay tuned on her socials below!
