Sunday October 18th, 2015 08:33 PM

Good music are always good, meaning they will be passed on to next generations. They are loved many and they get covered by many artists as time passes by. Good music are eternal. The latest video to surface shows a traditional Japanese rendition of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal, performed by professional shakuhachi (a Japanese bamboo flute) player Yuko Watanabe along with two backup performers on a koto (a stringed instrument, also the national instrument of Japan). The harmony of “East meets the West” is just amazing. Here’s the original by the way.  When was the last time you listened this version?

UK’s Singer Song-writer Lauren Faith Has The Sweetest Voice | MUSIC

Sunday February 1st, 2015 07:20 PM

I want to introduce a female singer that hit me recently. British native “Lauren Faith”  is a good looking and her outstanding voice drags you into her world of music. She is multi-talented and can play pianos, guitars, flutes, percussions, and violins. The first time I got to know her was this song. A very nice and relaxing house track with her sexy voice is just amazing. I love her voice but also like the music, which is very important element to determine whether a singer is good or great. If you listen to other stuff from her soundcloud, you will notice that her music is based on jazz, soul, …

JAY-Z’s ’96 Demo Ranked On “500 Greatest Albums of All Time” | Music

Saturday January 24th, 2015 08:37 PM

The golden age of HipHop, the 90’s. HipHop was far more raw at that time and it still is in some parts but one thing we can all tell is that HipHop has changed a lot since then. Here I found a very rare demo “Reasonable Doubt” which was released back in 1996 by Hova aka JAY-Z, a HipHop artist active from way back and a successful business man. Of course the quality of the mp3 is not so good as we listen to more digitally produced music on radios now and they are far more clear in terms of sound but very fresh in a way. The sales of vinyl …

Tuesday December 30th, 2014 08:33 PM

What was 2014 all about?  This is the question we ask ourselves when we hit the year end. Many things have happened, both good and bad but one thing we can say is the world is changing so rapidly and 2014 was a year of “change”. Today I want to share this video created by google, the search engine monster, where they visualized the top 2014 events that engaged literally everyone. One thing I have noticed these days is that the world is getting within everyone’s reach, meaning smaller.  If a financial crisis hits any country, It will effect the entire world in some way.  When Ebola disease was found …
