With the release of Ben Ridley’s ‘Sing’, i decided to take a look at this majestic, yet to the point tune.
‘Sing’ is a fantastically arranged piece, earning Ben a spot on a long list of greats!
He manages to gain a strong and cool bravado while Perfectly encapsulating the beauty that seeps through his mind; Images of New York lights, Rainy days and the bright feeling of being in a rich and cultured environment. The main theme though however, seems to be the positivity that Ben Ridley possesses, making his tracks that bit more heartfelt.
The overall feeling that the song ‘Sing’ gives me, is that of a person who has just found a new perception on life, and who is ready and willing to take on anything.
Male voices don’t come much more powerful than Russian singer, Georg Roman. Combining a blend of classical, operatic and rock styles on his new single ‘Forever’, the talented musician is one to look out for in the future.
Whilst this style may be difficult to imagine, Georg has compared himself to Josh Groban, and as soon as you listen to ‘Forever’, you will see why. Dramatic string sections set the scene before Georg truly unleahes his explosive baritone on the song. His voice resonates triumphantly over the classical instrumentation, providing his audience with quite the listening experience.
It might seem like Georg has been doing this all his life, but he originally followed the path of becoming an athlete, wanting to be a professional fighter or weightlifter. Evidently, Georg chose the right path- exhibiting his undeniable vocal talents to the world.

Exciting artist and producer, M3staken, otherwise known as M3 is releasing his super-experimental soundtrack album that blends elements of classical piano and electronic music with his primary genre of hip-hop.
Taking inspiration from huge acts such as Joey Bada$$, FKA Twigs and Jamie XX, it’s clear that M3’s style is one that is hard to pin down. However, this is not a bad thing; blending genres, experimenting with music and seeing what happens is an admirable trait within the musicianship of the ambitious M3staken.
The 8-track album entitled Apex works as an attempt to create a unique fusion of classical, hip-hop and electronic styles. He states that “as a primarily hip-hop based artist, it was important for me to emphasise the amount of musicality there is in hip-hop, while also using a mix of classical styles and modern techniques”.
M3staken’s classical sound contrasting with the hip-hop beats comes from unique techniques such as using live classical pianos rather than samples, thus escaping the hip-hop cliché.
