Live in the Lab reviewing all music, all independent, all the time, that was Christoffer Hiding with Magnetic. Yo this jawn is fire! This is 5 star material right here. This is that feel good deep in your soul, soul brother number 1 music right here! There’s not enough adjectives to describe how utterly amazing this song is. Everything from the vocals, production and arrangements was perfect. He has a distinct voice and his unparalleled style is off the charts! Christoffer is no stranger to Amped Sounds. We featured his single Shine On, which is equally amazing, about a year ago. That goes to show that this guy has a knack for creating outstanding music. Magnetic get’s the One Man Gang certified amped stamp of approval for sure! Head over to his soundcloud page soundcloud [dot] com [slash] Christopher Hiding.
Coming up we have the latest from Ships Have Sailed, Lucid Fly and more on Live in the Lab.
Live in the Lab, Amped Sounds [dot] com. This is that feel good music! Here’s Ships Have Sailed, on Live in the Lab.
Live in the Lab, One Man Gang that was Ships have Sailed with “If Only” from their LP Moodswings, which is due out on March 10th. LA’s finest is about to drop an 11 cut pop opus on your cranium! Each song is crafted specifically for the listener.The amount of thought that went into each verse, measure and note is heard with pristine clarity. I give Moodswings a 4 out of 5 stars. The album covers a variety of themes and there’s a song for everyone on it. Whether you’re connected to the up-tempo revolving door inspired “Boomerang” or the melodic, classic love story “Out of Time”, you’ll find a song or should I say songs specifically for you. Not too many modern day artists take the time out to create music with the listener in mind. And I want to say thank you guys for connecting your music with our hearts.

We’ve got the latest from Mike Larry Draw and Lucid Fly coming up on Live in the Lab.
Live in the Lab this is Mike Larry Draw with Necessitate
Live in the Lab, One Man Gang, reviewing all music, all independent, all the time. That was Mike Larry Draw with Necessitate off his new album, Amalgamate. This album is has a stroke of musical genius to it and I’ll tell you why. It’s because Draw isn’t afraid to be himself. He’s not a rapper full of thuggery and vile. He’s a backpacker, a visionary and an amalgamation of his 3 core crafts; emceeing, producing, and videography. So yeah, his music may come off as different, but it is undoubtedly a work of art that deserves its shine. Let’s check out a snip of Similar Contrast, Live in the Lab.
Live in the Lab, One Man Gang. That was a snip of Similar Contrast off Mike Larry Draw’s latest release, Amalgamate. What I like most about Amalgamate is that it’s like listening to an audiobook. Each song is its own story and each story represents a multi-faceted individual who is destined to make headway in the industry. I give Amalgamate 3.5 out of five stars. It’s a solid release. Good production and solid rhymes. I love the excessive usage of sound bites proliferated within each song. Get more from Mike Larry Draw on his official site, www.mikelarrydraw.com
Next up, Lucid Fly and Maylat on Live in the Lab powered by Amped Sounds dot com
Live in the Lab This is Lucid Fly with Waiting
You’re tuned in to Live in the Lab on Amped Sounds [dot] com that was Lucid Fly with “Waiting”. It’s been a while since the band has dropped anything new but their latest EP Stasis was well worth the wait. Female-fronted bands are always en vogue and front girl Nikki Layne gets it in for sure. Her voice is crazy man. You can peep her strong vocal performance on any track and specifically on “What Winter Was Like”. Can we cue that up? Let’s check out a clip of “What Winter Was Like”, Live in the Lab.
Live in the Lab, reviewing all music, all independent, all the time, that was “What Winter was Like” off Lucid Fly’s new EP, Stasis. We talked a bit about the vocals now let’s get into the musical aspect of Stasis. If you were fortunate enough to get your hands on their previous release, The Escape Stage, then you know what you’re in for. This band is sick with it man. The music is dark and edgy, just the way you like it. Thrashing guitars howl at you like wolves on a full moon as they seamlessly coincide with the percussion and Layne’s tough vocals. Overall I give this release 3.5 stars. It’s an airtight opus that will give other relative releases a run for the money. Get your hands on a limited edition copy Stasis and other cool merch on their web store at lucidfly.com
We’re rockin the house with the talented vocals of Melat next on Live in the Lab.
Live in the Lab, Amped Sounds [dot] com. This is Melat on Amped Sounds [dot] com.
Live in the lab, One Man Gang, reviewing all music, all independent, all the time, that was Melat with Golden off her latest release Move Me. This girl is blazing the R&B/Soul game right now. Need more proof? Let’s check out my favorite record on the album. Here’s Melat with Fanclub on Live in the Lab.
You’re tuned into Live in the Lab on Amped Sounds [dot] com. That was Melat with Fanclub. Overall I give the album a 4. The production was tight and the vocals were even tighter. At times the vocals outshined the beats, but producer Jansport J did his thing! Move Me reminds you of that Mary J, Faith Evans era of R&B. Back when a vocalist didn’t have to rely on effects and Autotune. This is one of the best releases to hit the Internet so far this year. Mark my words, this girl is going to be a superstar. No doubt about it. I’m telling you, it’s only a matter of time before Melat becomes a household name. Get Melat in your household, on your phone, iPod, tape deck, whatever by copping the release on itunes and get updates on her official site beholdmelat.com. You can thank me later!
