Check Out Sarantos New Hard Rock Song – “D’ja Cheat”

Published

on

Hard rock is probably the most misunderstood music genre. Fans are sometimes surprised to find out that Sarantos music reviews very often find a correlation to hard rock bands like Queen, Pink Floyd, Led Zepplin and Fall Out Boy. There is a driving guitar and powerful drum style that is there if one listens intently. On this specific song, “D’ja Cheat”, Sarantos goes deep into metal/hard rock territory even approaching a vibe like Metallica. People like different genres for different reasons. Some say its a primal instinct. Sarantos continues to not stay in one stream of sound and this song shows fully the experimentation that continues to be evident to followers. Songs don’t all sound the same. Fans don’t know what to expect next. This song challenges the listener. It is not safe like some of Sarantos other catchy pop flavored songs. This song is loud and confronting, and the subject matter is not something most want to discuss let alone analyze. It’s not just noise. There is a purpose and a reason for everything on this song, and music video.

Not all rock music is metal. Metal and hard rock music is very misunderstood. It is not barbaric. It is not against religion. It does not promote Satanism. It does not encourage crime. It is not sexist. It is not just screaming. It is not simple. Hard rock gets a bad rap. It is misunderstood even amnong musicians. D’ja Cheat might not climb the charts but it remains one of Sarantos favorite songs because it is raw and passionate. Sarantos champions the rockers out there who might never get the respect or appreciation of music critics but they should. Hard rock and metal have many subgenres within them. Some hard rock bands write music and lyrics that suck. But you see that in every genre of music, right?

“This video is about gambling, jealousy and cheating,” says Sarantos. “The drone footage and vintage cars were so beautiful but the real highlight of the video are the music and lyrics themselves. The story takes center stage. Although this song veers off the pop rock genre, I love trying extremes and even different genres well beyond my comfort level. I can tell my fans that I’m of Christian faith, not in any cults, not a devil worshipper and yet, I love the music as it fits this song. I love rock! I don’t think there’s anything wrong with hard rock music! It’s so misunderstood. Some of the nicest people I’ve met are in this genre. You really shouldn’t judge a book by its cover.”

33% of any music-related sales profits from this song are going straight to Alliance for Aging Research. They are the leading nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the pace of scientific discoveries and their application to vastly improve the universal human experience of aging and health. Advances in research help people live longer, happier, more productive lives and reduce health care costs over the long term and that access to the latest scientific information empowers people to take control of their health.

Sarantos’ unique sound has been best described by industry insiders as an “emotionally powerful vocal style masterfully united with music that is a fusion of classic ’80s rock blended with modern soft rock and pop music.”

Since 2014, Sarantos has won over 30 awards with Akademia LA Music and Beat 100, while also being nominated for the International Music & Entertainment Awards and the Hollywood Songwriting Awards. Even without ever using a professional music studio, label, ad agency or radio promoters, two songs “Dreamer” & “What If I Never See You Again” have spent many months in the top 200 on the majors list in the US for radio airplay, according to the Digital Radio Tracker Top 200 charts. On the independent charts, Sarantos has hit the top 10 twice.

Majestique – Overload EP
Coming off the back of the widespread success of previous collection ‘Science Of The Heart’ comes the latest EP from electronic duo Majestique – who bring a bit of 80’s magic to their sounds of now. Once again to be released through the effortlessly cool, quality platform that is Dirty Soul Recordings, ‘Overload’ will land on September 23rd.

Spanning four tracks in length and piling on atmospheric and melodic energy throughout, the hazy trickles of ‘Moonlight’ kick-start this tracklist. With gliding analogue chords moving against mere snatches of vocals, this one grows with groove and subtle funk elements.

Published

kove
Kove is back with the latest installment of his club-focused EP series, ‘Nightfires’. Using the series to delve deeper into a pure, musical sound, Kove says of his latest EP, “I wanted to take inspiration from my rock roots, trying to play as many parts as possible on the guitar or bass, and bringing more aggression into the tunes. I’ve also tried to branch out lyrically, incorporating some darker themes. “

‘Nightfires Vol.1’, landed with a bang back in April and gained strong, specialist support across BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra. ‘Vol. 2’ out now, is further evidence of Kove’s unique and breath-taking diversity, a talent who continues to defy musical boundaries and garner widespread support from his peers.

In Review: åMBe – ‘Enemy of the People’ EP

In Review: åMBe - 'Enemy of the People' EP
The haunting and futuristic music from the ‘Enemy of the People’ EP by åMBe, will surprise more than one! Born in a small village in Russia, and being keen on music since she was a child, allowed her to become a skilful artist. I would even call her as the new promising icon of the Indie/Electronica scene. The ‘Enemy of the People’ EP features a total of eight tracks, and it will be released officially in late September. She’s definitely a creative lady with out-of-the-box ideas… For the most part, the EP is made of avant-garde songs, and you will love her style if you’re also a fan of Bjork or Kate Bush. Here’s the world-exclusive track-by-track review:

1 – IDCNM (I Don’t Care No More)  Let’s all take an experimental musical journey with åMBe. You’ll be fascinated in the way she combines the quasi-operatic soprano female vocals with delicacy across the entire song. (Available now via SoundCloud)

2 – Under Waterskin Everything flows with åMBe’s sensual singing on this particular tune. Integrating a slow tempo that creates also a very organic beauty, and making you feel in a new dimension.

3 – Ache Here she performs her music in a loose way, and the song could be catalogued as radio-friendly. I’m loving the freshness of this Indie-Pop track.

4 – Peeler  In my opinion, this song has a dark touch. A provocative mix of drama and in general it will leave you feeling as if walls are closing in on you. Bringing curious experimentalism directly to our ears.

5 – Little Grain I like åMBe’s expressive voice along with the guitar chords. What a tune! The artist showcases a refreshingly innovative style full of erotism.

6 – Monster (mini.mono.opera) Once again, I love the vocal technique that makes her sound like a professional opera singer + the electronic melodic rhythms is a powerful advantage. At this point she has proven to be extremely talented.

7 – Of Your Crimes A song that starts out with lovely violin notes. It could perfectly be a James Bond theme song. So far, this is another valuable and strong track off the ‘Enemy of the People’ EP that would be a great promotional single and this is of course my favorite one!

8 – I Don’t Care No More (acoustic) An alternative version, where we can appreciate clearer lyrics and her vocal range as well. Overall, a highly recommended EP from a talented artist. A voice we are lucky to have! This material showed me there’s more to music than four-to-the-floor dance music beats.
