2012 in Music
Back in 2011, Electropop/Dance music ruled all over the airwaves with hit songs like “We Found Love”, “Party Rock Anthem” and “On The Floor”. Even though we didn’t get to see a huge transition from 2011 to 2012, but we shall say that last year we were able to see more and more non-mainstream acts becoming popular. “Somebody That I Used To...

Album Review: Diggy - Unexpected Arrival
Daniel Dwayne Simmons III, better known as Diggy Simmons maybe is just a newcomer in the Rap game, but there’s no doubt that he could be up there competing with the other Hip-Hop veterans one day.

Album Review: Maroon 5 - Overexposed
With “Payphone” topping the charts all over the world, the album Overexposed is finally here. As Adam Levine says, it’s their Poppiest album to date - it’s true and sadly, there’s no Maroon 5’s signature Alternative/Funk/Soul sound on the album. But thankfully, there are quite a few jams that make up for it though. The album opener, “One More...
