Balkan Beat Box’ “Chin Chin” gets Two Remixes

Balkan Beat Box’ single “Chin Chin” has gotten to remixes.  One from Bad Royale and the other from Gaudi.  Both remixes are completely different than the others Bad Royale’s has a more pop feel to it and Gaudi’s has more of an urban feel.  For two different mixers doing remixes of your song is pretty cool.  You can listen to both versions from The Music Ninja webstie where they are exclusives.  Take a jump and have some fun to see which remix you like better and if you want to check out Balkan Beat Box live see which dates they might be near you – Richard

Vacances Single “Human”

Vacances is sharing with the ComicPop listeners his single “Human”.  Vacances has with this single has that 1980’s style synth/pop going.  When he first came in with the lyrics my mind went straight to a similar sound as Human League.  Like most of these types of songs his voice is blending in with the instrumentals.  This is a fine line that Vacances will have to watch.  With “Human” he stays at the appropriate level of being right above the instrumentals.  But with his softer voice he will have to watch the power of the instrumentals so they don’t over take his voice.  Like I said though with “Human” it is working.  So check out Vacances’ “Human” through SoundCloud – Richard:

THANKS Single “Your Man”

THANKS is sharing with ComicPop Library listeners their single ‘Your Man”, with Sam Sparro.  “Your Man” is a fun single that has a playful sound to it that I love.  With the rhythm of this song being as catchy as it is you won’t be able to keep your head from bobbin’.  When you get into the chorus it really reminds me of Prince and how he sang.  Have some fun and give THANKS’ electro/pop single “Your Man” a listen, through SoundCloud, you’ll be glad you did – Richard:

Frenchy B’s Lyric Video for “Rolling”

Frenchy B is sharing with our listeners his latest single “Rolling” lyric video.  This single is from his EP En Route.  The lyric video is pretty simple with a black back ground and the lyric flashing onto the screen.  “Rolling” has a club rap feel to it that has a feel like something Will.I.Am  would put out.  This might catch some of our listeners off guard, but as everyone knows we here at ComicPop enjoy listen to music from around the world and this artist comes to us from way of France.  Here’s Frenchy B’s lyric video through his YouTube channel – Richard:

Balkan Beat Box’s New Single “Chin Chin”

sneak attack media logobalkan-beat-box

Balkan Beat Box is giving our listeners a look at the latest music video for their single “Chin Chin”.  “Chin Chin” is from the trio’s fifth album, Shout It Out, and from the start it of the single you now that the band takes an international influence in the rhythm’s in this single.  The beat has a light airy feel to it even though it is talking about the allure of material things and the music video carries over that theme.  This style might not fit with some listeners, but stretch yourself and you might find you like what you hear.  So check out Balkan Beat Box’s “Chin Chin” music video, from the band’s YouTube channel and look for their album on your digital vendor of choice – Richard:

Ben Talmi’s Lyric Video for “Play”

ben-talmi

Ben Talmi, recently signed with Communion Records, is sharing his lyric video, for his single “Play”, with our listeners.  This single starts out sounding like a type of lullaby feel to it and then the chorus takes you into a more pop beat, but still at a slower rhythm.  When you watch the lyric video, individuals with seizures might be aware that the way the video is spliced together it has kind of a strobe effect.  Also with the video, and I wonder if this was intentional because the way the song feels, when you get to the chorus many will see the influence of Sesame Street with the pronunciation shadows.  Here’s Ben Talmi’s “Play” lyric video through his YouTube channel – Richard:

Swaai Boys’ Single “Dana of Dendur”

swaii-boys

The Swaai Boys are sharing with us their single “Dana of Dendur” from their upcoming EP.  This group has that California beach feel that you got from the music of Jan & Dean and Beach Boys.  All that beach/island music that has a way of making a person relax.  So grab a drink, have a set in your beach chair, lean back and let Swaai Boys’ “Dana of Dendur” wash over you through SoundCloud – Richard:

Benta Has a “Lover In Dark”

benta

Benta is sharing with the ComicPop listeners his music video for his single “Lover in Dark”.  This from the beginning is an Electronica influenced piece.  The steady beat is close to being over used, but the rest of the piece brings the song together and makes it a great sexy dance tune.  It’s slow dance time, on the dance floor, with your partner.  The music video will take you by surprise if you are not ready for it, I thought maybe my sound wasn’t working, but then about 18 seconds in the music starts.  The video works will in the black & white medium…it gives it an even sexier feel.  Here is Benta’s “Lover in Dark” through his YouTube channel – Richard:

Heartracer Sings about Their “Dream Girl”

dreamgirl

Heartracer is sharing with the ComicPop listeners their electro/pop single “Dream Girl”.  This single has a kinetic energy that will make your body want to move with the rhythm.  The single would fit well in a dance club.  Heartracer is made up of brothers Chip and Chris Cosby and you  can tell they were influenced from the 1980’s style of music.  Very fun to listen to and a solid electro/pop single.  Enjoy Heartracer’s “Dream Girl”, through SoundCloud, and I can’t wait to see what they come out with next – Richard:
