RageMD “What You Lookin’ At” (Prod. By SaDiCi)
There is no sweeter revenge than that in return for injustice. If any can capture such an emotion through music, it’s the talented maestro Notaker. The breakthrough American producer returns to mau5trap with his newest dark, atmospheric production “Retribution,” a hauntingly cinematic, spacey journey through the process of seeking – and finding – that reprisal. Notaker coaxes the listener through its opening with lilting instrumentals that build to sweeping melodies, all layered under an undulating bassline. The pressure begins to build and one can almost imagine Notaker‘s inner warrior preparing for battle, finally triumphing at the track’s driving crescendo. Months after his release “Abyss,” Notaker demonstrates that he’s better than ever by the use of analog sounds in “Retribution,” a rare find in today’s synthesized world. It’s this raw, real quality that gives “Retribution” its undeniably visceral appeal. “This song was a step in a different, darker direction for me and the first time I’ve ever implemented analog sounds into my production process,”says Notaker, shedding further light on his inspiration. “The feeling of the song makes me imagine someone planning revenge on someone for the injustices they’ve done to them, hence the name Retribution.”
David Nothaker – better known as Notaker – has received much acclaim for his musical embodiments of ambiguous natural concepts, like his interpretation of fire through “Born in the Flames” on Armada Captivating, , the subaqueous “Abyss” on mau5trap and the mystical “Genesis” EP recently released on Monstercat. With each impressive dislay of his prowess, Notaker is steadily evolving from talented newcomer to vetted dance music prodigy. He certainly has a unique musical style, one that has been praised by fans and tastemakers alike in his relatively short professional career. Inspired by legends like Hans Zimmer, Deadmau5, and Eric Prydz, Notaker specializes in creating an atmosphere around his productions to immerse the listener in the story of his sound, rather than just the track itself. 2017 has been quite a year for Notaker, and we can’t wait to see what he has up his sleeve next.

MESSYAH “I Don’t Wanna Die”
“If you’d asked Nic Signer what he planned to do with his life a few years ago, he would have told you he was going to be a preacher,” The Nashville Scene ‘s Lance Conzett wrote on Wednesday. “But well into his junior year at seminary, Signer suffered a crisis of faith that led him to abandon the church and embrace music as his future. Under the name MESSYAH , Signer marries pop hooks and modern rap music into a glittering, anxious hip-hop vibe that he calls ‘existential trap.’ His music pries apart the realities affecting his generation— financial instability, suicide, doubt— and the questions of life and existence that drove him toward a career in religion in the first place.”
Fresh off of a packed-out, debut headlining show in Nashville that was praised by Music City’s own alt weekly, MESSYAH premiered his brand new single, ” I Don’t Wanna Die ,” with Variance Magazine yesterday to even further acclaim.
Known for his entirely DIY aesthetic and distinct blend of organic instrumentation, the pop-rap artist recorded and produced the track solely by himself in just a few hours using a DX7 and a guitar in the main pad, along with some drum samples.
He told Variance , “Truthfully, ‘ I Don’t Wanna Die ‘ is a summary of my life in 2017… a checkpoint song portraying where I am in my existence. It’s a song about being broke; having no money in the bank; wanting something, even though time is slipping away super fast; and finally, after a long period of time, seeing clearly and growing in confidence to be yourself and step out into the future.”
Philip Bixby “Heartbreaker”
Heartbreaker celebrates women who can “do both”. Hopefully, its an anthem that will empower women yet also encourage men to allow their woman to flourish outside of their relationship. In the second verse, however an ultimatum is given, “if you want to be with you, then come correct”… I feel like more men should be straight up about their feelings for a girl, if don’t want her with anyone else, then you have to let her know.
Karim White “Lie To Me”
Karim White’s new single ‘Lie To Me’ does everything it needs to, and more. His charismatic rock star presence mixed with Bowie-esque lyricism is sure to catch your attention and get you out of your seat. Karim names many artists as his influences, from Prince to Led Zeppelin.
However, he makes clear that every song he writes ‘comes from the spirit of Rock and Roll’.
‘Lie To Me’ is flirtatious and energizing but also vulnerable. Karim sings of a relationship falling apart, where he would rather his lover lie to him and tell him what he wants to hear, rather than accept the truth, that they have both fallen out of love…
Karim’s drive to reach his goals is unprecedented. He has toured extensively around the Auckland open mic scene, winning over new fans and honing his sound along the way. The live feel of ‘Lie To Me’ is also exceptional. Hearing the track feels like listening to a band jamming right in front of you, playing to a buzzing, packed-out venue.
In today’s music landscape of ‘DJ’ artists, Karim White kicks back with quality, solid, rock music. There’s more of this on the way with his debut E.P. due for release on December 12th, 2017.
You can also check him out live at NZ’s hottest festival ‘Rhythm and Vines’ 2018 NYE party. www.karimwhite.com

Peyton McMahon “Tell Me Why”
Peyton McMahon has been on a musical odyssey for the past several years. Another chapter in that journey is beginning with the launch of Peyton’s initial music release; an EP simply entitled “Peyton McMahon” which contain 4 songs exclusively written by Peyton. After years of sharing imaginative covers, Peyton McMahon is now creating his own path.
It’s not like uploading cover tunes has been bad for Peyton. He has amassed a YouTube following of over 13,000 followers and gotten shoutouts from several artists. He was also personally selected by Kelly Clarkson to perform in Dallas for her homecoming stop on her Piece By Piece tour.
It has all been good, but Peyton now wants to do his own thing.
So today begins the latest chapter in Peyton’s music career. Peyton is releasing his first record of original material with his 4-song EP “Peyton McMahon”. The EP was recorded in Los Angeles and was produced by David Maemone who is a member of Gavin DeGraw’s band. David, who plays keyboards, also recruited the drummer (Michael Baker) and guitarist (Billy Norris) from DeGraw’s band to pitch in on Peyton’ record.
The EP contains 4 hook-filled tunes that would easily fit into any top-40 playlist in the current musical landscape. The lead single, “Hold On Tight” is reminiscent of Shawn Mendes with an undeniable, ‘can’t get it out of my head’ chorus. Another killer cut from the EP, “Tell Me Why” has a vibe somewhere between Hozier and Niall Horan with a slam-dunk chorus worthy of Matchbox 20. Peyton then balances those tunes with an acoustic Ed Sheeran-like ballad with an unexpected and pleasing falsetto performance called “See the Sun”. The remaining track is a pulsating pop song called “Last Man Standing” that shows a definite OneRepublic influence.
