Joshua Moshier, United States Army Field Band, Jim Keen – A Portrait of Honor – song by Joshua Moshier, United States Army Field Band, Jim Keene | Spotify (Spotify)

“This soundtrack is for everyone who loves to meet the evening at the TV screen, enjoying their favourite movie. It also creates a special aftertaste. Just listen and it may become an excellent part of your music collection for a long time!”

“Этот саундтрек понравится всем, кто любит встречать вечера у экрана телевизора, наслаждаясь любимым фильмом. Бывает, что хочется насладиться послевкусием, послушать понравившийся саундтрек и эта композиция станет отличным подарком и частью вашей коллекции на долгие времена!”

Navona Records presents SOUNDTRACK OF THE AMERICAN SOLDIER, an album of contemporary works for wind band performed by The United States Army Field Band. Led by Colonel Jim R Keene, the Army Field Band is the U.S. Army’s premier touring musical organization. In SOUNDTRACK OF THE AMERICAN SOLDIER, the Army Field Band presents music of classic American films and video games, and in doing so celebrates the stories they portray and the men and women who inspired them. Monitored and mixed in IMMERSIVE DOLBY ATMOS® (5.1.4), SURROUND (5.1), and STEREO, the album immerses the listener in a multi-dimensional soundscape that creates a deeply meaningful connection to the music and the stories it portrays.

Teaming up with some of the most-heralded composers in Hollywood—including Laura Karpman, Joshua Moshier, and Jeff Beal—the Army Field Band performs fresh arrangements of music from the 1941 Gary Cooper classic Sergeant York, the legendary Electronic Arts video game Medal of Honor, and everything in between. SOUNDTRACK OF THE AMERICAN SOLDIER begins with Brass Ceiling: The Journey of General Ann Dunwoody, honoring the life and work of Four Star General Ann Dunwoody who was the first woman to achieve the rank of four star general. The music is meticulously crafted with latent symbolism, such as a fanfare that portrays the movement of “supply lines” like those Dunwoody oversaw when she was in charge of the Army’s logistics.

Later we hear an arrangement of the 1917 classic, “Over There,” which became a hugely-popular anthem during both world wars; this time, it is reimagined by the Army Field Band as only they can. March from 1941,written by film-scoring legend John Williams, captures this Spielberg film’s lighthearted humor and underlying emotional gravitas. The album concludes with an unexpected treat and homage to the Skywalker Ranch, home of Skywalker Sound where the album was recorded: “The Jedi Steps and Finale” From Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

SOUNDTRACK OF THE AMERICAN SOLDIER is both a moving tribute to military heroes and a fresh look at stories and sounds of struggle and ultimate triumph. SOUNDTRACK OF THE AMERICAN SOLDIER is a unique and deeply memorable recording that is not to be missed.

Hideyuki Hashimoto – Shin (Spotify)

“Charged with a certain mood, we hurry to close the curtains, turn on the player and plunge into the world of neoclassical music. We hear how the piano mallet gently taps on the copper strings, drops of autumn rain flow down the window one after the other, and the world seems to freeze for a moment ...”

“Зарядившись определённым настроением, торопимся задёрнуть шторы, включаем проигрыватель и погружаемся в мир неоклассической музыки. Слышим, как фортепианный молоточек нежно постукивает по медным струнам, по окну стекают одна за другой капли осеннего дождя и мир, кажется, замирает на мгновение...”

"Shin" means something like core in Japanese. This is the fourth entry from the new solo piano series by Hideyuki Hashimoto, very warm tone melodies float freely around the core.

“Very dynamic and detailed work, also preserving melodiousness and harmony. Music that is firmly entrusted to your brain and does not fade away. Its waves run through the body one after another. Big and enchanting Dream Pop rhythms.”

“Детально продуманная работа, очень динамичная, но при этом сохранившая в себе мелодичность и гармонию. Музыка, которая прочно въедается в ваш мозг и не даёт передохнуть. Одна за другой волны пробегают по телу, всё большое и больше очаровывая ритмами Dream Pop.”

New Orleans singer/songwriter, Julie Elody has had quite an impressive run this summer with releasing a single every month and her new song "Pedestal" is the cherry on top.

RUNAE – You’re My Wild Storm (Spotify)

“Сочная, современная аранжировка, ангельский голос вокалистки и приятная, ламповая атмосфера. Музыка обволакивает, равноправно занимают музыкальное пространство и словно шепчет на ухо, - я с тобой, я рядом. Цепляющее мелодичное произведение!”

Runae shared few words behind this song inspiration with Nagamag:

"I wrote this song myself this summer in my bedroom and home studio in Hundested in Denmark where I live. The song is about feeling attracted to the wild and tells the story about being in love with this wild person who is unpredictable but at the same time has a power over you. I am inspired by nature and like to use elements from nature in both my lyrics and visuals.

The song has a romantic soft pop mood."

Mokita – colorblind (Spotify)

“Light and full of emotion Electro pop creation by "Mokita". The song starts smoothly and goes on with etherial lyrics followed by background soft melodies. A real pleasure to listen and spend your lonely moments.”

Raw and emotional new single from Mokita going through the struggles of depression. Beautiful and heartbreaking at the same time. Following up recent singles More Than Friends, Love Alone as well as collaborations with Lost Frequencies and R3HAB.

After all this is a band that has played several hundreds of concerts all around the world over the past 5 years and we feel you can hear that in the maturity of these performances, the tightness of the interplay, the effortless manner with which the songs unfold. Just as they were always intended.

Trudii Harrison – Getting Better (Spotify)

“Sweet Island Vibes will take you there. Quality clean reggae with an upbeat message. Produced well with a deep natural bass structure, as it should be. ”

Hailing from the rural Jamaican parish of St Ann, Trudii Harrison began singing in competitions as a child and later pursued her love of music working in Jamaica’s hotel and tourism sector as a band singer since 2012 and cabaret performer since 2013. "Getting Better", with it's message of hope and resilience and of never giving up, is from her recent (Aug 13) release True Story on CKM Infinity Studio

BuVu – Hijaz (Spotify)

“The music that instantly raises the mood and follows the relative and memorable motives of the beloved Organic House. -BuVu- gave to his track a unique note of charm at the expense of ethnic motifs, vocals and a memorable rhythm section.”

“Музыка, которая мгновенно поднимает настроение и радует слух родными и запоминающимися мотивами любимого Organic House. -BuVu- придал своему треку уникальную нотку шарма за счёт этнических мотивов, вокала и приятной, запоминающейся ритм-секцией.”

Hijaz: The wail from a foreign land

This song is the wail of the helpless feeling of "homesickness" of people who are in search, especially those who are in search of themselves.

The story was formed by the encounter of a person, on a musical journey who had lived abroad for a long time and finally returned to his homeland, with other souls that are constantly in search like him. First, the wailing sound of ney was heardand then the words of Mevlana Celalettin Rumi…The melodies and rhythms that were revealed always reminded the same endless longing, which is the longing for the "essence" where one cannot stay distant from "oneself".

Undoubtedly, it is Mevlana Celaleddin Rumi’s words that best describe this longing.

The first 18 couplets of the Masnavi are about the "ney", which is pulled off from the reed bed and cauterized inside with fire, narrating its cries in the hands of a master and trying to return to its homeland. Nevertheless, this search, this cry never ceases. As the poet Ahmet Cemil Cankat from Urfa said, being on a foreign land is always hard...

Jah Cure – You Cant See My Soul (Spotify)

“-You Can't See My Soul- came out very easy, soft and meditative, if you can express this as part of the Reggae scene. Awesome work, with unique pace and it seems that the composer has collected a thousand of sound elements into a special mix.”

“-You Cant See My Soul- вышел очень легким, мягким и медитативным, если можно так выразиться в рамках жанра Reggae. Потрясающая работа, которая выдерживает свойственный ей темп и словно конструктор собирается из тысячи звуковых элементов в уникальный механизм.”

Jah Cure is an International Reggae recording artist who has been Grammy nominated.

ah Cure is a Jamaican reggae singer who rose to fame in the late '90s only to have his meteoric climb to the top halted by a jail sentence in early 1999. During his eight years of incarceration, he maintained his innocence, claiming that he was wrongly accused; his position was largely supported by the Rasta and reggae communities, which held him up as a sort of folk hero. A number of compilations were released during his sentence and Cure even managed to record several popular albums in a prison recording studio which helped advance his career. Coinciding with his release from prison in 2007, he issued the album True Reflections...A New Beginning and began performing live to widespread acclaim. Cure continued to enjoy success over the next decade, reaching a new career peak with 2017's Grammy-nominated The Cure, marking the first two consecutive albums by the same artist that topped the Billboard Reggae charts...

Dan Heale – TLC (Spotify)

“Sunlit emotions with upbeat house riffs. The piano highlights the classic sounds of the genre. Her voice is engaging and draws one into the story told. ”

Newcastle-based DJ and Producer Dan Heale shares his uplifting new track, ‘TLC’ featuring Evalina, out now on all streaming platforms.

Delivering a fresh take on dance music, Dan’s music combines catchy pop vocal hooks with energetic sounds and summer energy. Speaking of the track, Dan says, “TLC is an uplifting and empowering summer anthem about having the confidence to make the first move and tell somebody how you really feel about them.”

I created this track with the talented Evalina. She wrote the song and recorded the vocals together with David Kisch. When they sent it to me, I couldn’t wait to work on the production side, and I finished the track straight away and sent it back to them the same day! TLC was a product of lockdown. We created a happy, euphoric and uplifting beat during a time of stress. It serves the purpose of turning negativity into positivity.”

Citing Avicii and Skrillex as his biggest influences, Dan has always had a deep-rooted love for music from a very early age. He took guitar lessons when he was a child, and also learned to play piano by ear. He first got into production when he was 18 when he discovered electronic dance music. He says, “I used to attempt to recreate sounds and music that I really liked, I remember going on YouTube and typing in, “How to make Avicii Music” and “What instrument makes Dubstep.” That was when I discovered I could produce my own music from my bedroom.”

Dan is also one half of the duo ‘Keepin It Heale’, his tracks and remixes have accumulated over 20 million streams across all platforms and have received support from the likes of Martin Garrix, Sam Feldt, Tiësto, BBC Radio 1, Capital FM, Kiss FM and many more.

Kick Bong – Zelitude (Spotify)

“Kick Bong new album Zelitude delivers a fresh electronic downtempo spring of sounds. Rich in arps and cinematic atmospheres, soft selection of drums, infused with drops of mystery, nostalgia and psychedelia, delivering a fine layered craft of quality sound.”

Banco De Gaia, Ian Urbina – My Little Country (Spotify)

“A classic buildup of arpeggiators opens the vibe. The mid-tempo techno vibe takes over and grabs you along for the journey. Strings appear and you want more. ”

Artist shared few words behind his song inspiration with Nagamag:

"I often work with field recordings but generally in abstract ways where the shape and texture of the sound is more important than its general context or meaning. For this project in particular, it is the meaning of what you are hearing that matters — the mood created by the sonic environment and the message of the words being spoken. One person stating a fact is less convincing than witnessing the reality, even if it’s indirectly.

I’ve always loved the sea, both being in it and on it. I’ve spent many happy days diving, snorkeling and being among sea creatures in their environment, and I value aquatic life as highly as I do life on land. Thus it saddens me to learn of the extent to which marine life is treated as nothing more than a resource to exploit, with no concern for what is impacted in the process. This project spurred me to not be complicit in this exploitation, and to instead call it out when I see it." - Banco de Gaia

Banco De Gaia has been performing and releasing for over 25 years now, along the way becoming one of the music industry’s most maverick innovators. His legacy is as glittering as it is diverse, ranging from Hollywood film sound credits to the critically acclaimed ‘Last Train to Lhasa’, first released in 1995 to a rapturous reception. His live act still packs out venues and festivals all over the world, with audio-visual performances renowned for their explosive, cutting edge quality: from sampling wizardry fused with haunting vocals and poignant acoustics to genre-hopping musical instrumentals, all accompanied by socially engaged visuals.

Marc-E – Brahman (Spotify)

“ At times it is not easy to interpret the enigmatic internal journey. Brehman by Marc-e opens us up musically into spiritual worlds that engage with rhythm. Whale language and sacred geometry flow through this track like a comet visiting a new Galaxy. Soothing and organic drum overtones that climax with smooth guitar riffs, welcoming to the sacred space of sound design. ”

What motivated you to write this song?

I wanted to write an acoustic song. One that would be intimate and personal. Which of course brought me to the topic of love.

How is this song personal?

The lyrics describe my biggest hopes in a relationship.

Why did you write this song?

I wanted to express my frustrations about the difficulties of dating during a pandemic. But I also wanted to write a song that was a bit ambiguous so that anyone in a relationship would relate to the song as well.

How is it ambiguous?

The line “I need to help myself to find you”…which could be taken literally or metaphorically.

Favorite lines in the song:

“I just want to grow old with you

and tell you every day,

I love you…”

Any particular anecdotes while making this song?

I unexpectedly found myself tearing up during my favorite lines, which are the actual takes I used for the song.

What did you learn from making this song?

It’s really tough to sing softly, on key and with emotion.

What instruments did you use in this song?

Acoustic guitar, Dunun, a Bell, String Orchestra, and Vocals.

With all the love songs out there, what do you think makes “Love is Real” stand out?

Reality vs Dreaming: There are double meanings throughout the song about someone’s want for love vs the truth about love. The want for love is about the self while the truth for love is about reality.

A loving relationship is a two way street in that you can’t have a strong relationship with someone without having a strong relationship with yourself.

In a love relationship both play an important part because reality is now and dreaming is the future.

KB Mike – Used To (Video)

“You can hear how a vocalist imposes every moment that seemed suitable for imparting an atmosphere. Magnificent Hip-hop rhythms instantly attract attention on -used to- with a need to repeat again and again.”

“Слышно, как вокалист улучает каждый момент, который показался подходящим для придания атмосферы. Великолепная подача материала, насыщенные ритмы Hip-Hop мгновенно притягивают к себе внимание и заставляют включать -Used To- снова и снова.”

In the visual directed by AJ Spitz [G Herbo, Lil Eazzyy], KB Mike sits at an old school typewriter where he punches out one letter after another to his ex. Those letters pile up on her bed only to be discarded in a flurry of tears. Despite looking for love elsewhere, they both magnetically find one another again in a romantic reunion. The breakup-to-makeup story serves as the perfect complement to the track.

“Used To” continues to gain traction, racking up over 11 million streams to date. At the same time, he’s already received looks from HotNewHipHop, REVOLT and more.

About KB Mike:

From the Marquette Park and Gage Park sections of Chicago’s historic Southside, 20-year-old KB Mike dodged the pitfalls of violence and poverty through art. “Music is what keeps me focused and out of harm’s way. That’s really how I navigated through all of Chicago’s stuff,” the fresh-faced artist with the confident flow and melodic voice admits. After a breakthrough 2020 that included high-six-figure engagements on Soundcloud, Instagram, and Facebook, Mike is already revved up for 2021, when he will release his anticipated full-length debut.

From a young age, KB Mike endured losing loved ones to the streets and drugs. Having found popularity in high school and the community, KB Mike tried his hand at rapping in 2018. What began as acapella freestyles to others’ songs during house arrest evolved into something far greater two years later. “Deep In Love” blends soft strings and accents with an authentically contemporary understanding of young romance. That knack for relationship rap also shines on “Drunk Texting,” a song where listeners can hear Mike’s emerging singing alongside his in-the-pocket flow. With over 2 million streams combined, these songs are two of the dozen or so that introduced a talented artist in 2020. On the heels of late January’s successful video single “Revenge,” Mike vows to step forth with his debut mixtape. In the meantime, a standout versatile voice from the Windy City is taking flight.

Cian Jay, joshua epithet – Dust (Spotify)

“Real life events of a young man layered on dreamy chillhop beat. The story continuers with an echoed chorus. Well produced and full of inner journeys. ”

Cian Jay releases his incredibly thoughtful indie rap EP 'Granite', produced by Zack Teale who also worked with Cian on his debut single 'Summer is Dead', his biggest track to date. The album is a concept piece that takes you through the full process of loss in its complete truth, it is out 27th August on all streaming platforms.

‘Dust’ is from a poem that Cian wrote when he originally came up with the concept of this album, it feels like a track where he completely bares his soul he touches on subjects of toxic masculinity that overshadows the underlying subject of male mental health. This track is a beautiful ode to the lessons that his grandfather taught him, where he subtly encourages men to be vulnerable as emotions are for humans they are not for a specific gender.

Granite in Cian's own words - "It’s about loss. The loss of a loved one, or a loss of self. The deterotiation of ‘Granite’ (new life) to ‘Dust’ (no life). It goes through the stages of grief. A lot of heartache went into this. Losing my grandfather and the big reality of ‘death’ setting in - This album was made to ruminate on all this, trying to come to terms with some kind of peace on the way. To work through these emotions and come out with some kind of clarity at the end. I find talking very helpful; I’m a big oversharer. But this was different. It was very therapeutic. All was recorded within Zack Teale's shed. It was a gentle, yet a kind of ‘powerhouse’ for creativity - A safe haven even."

Cian Jay is an independent singer, songwriter and producer from the UK. Debuting in 2019, Cian has gained a small but dedicated following through social media and his real life advertising of his music.
