Toggo Ultrarock Interview: Take a step into his Twilight Zone of creativity

September 11, 2017

The dazzling, larger than life, effervescently flamboyant Toggo Ultrarock has just released his new single entitled Cannonball. A cross between Freddy Mercury, Alice Cooper and Adele, this artist, born and raised in Norway has one of the most unique voices I’ve ever heard, in the best way possible. I was indisputably compelled to investigate his prior music, and pray for more new releases. Toggo comes with an air of mystery. Once in a band called Scared of Girls, located in Hollywood, he was about to go national when he literally disappeared. Eight months later he re-emerged, having lost everything due to a strange experience…his house, his car, his money, and his chance at fame. Now he’s back with his soon to be released EP titled “Ultrarock”, accompanying his new single and video for Cannonball. I’m still not quite sure what universe Toggo has originated from, but wherever it is, I need to be there. I visited his Twilight Zone of creativity, and had a conversation with the EDM glam rocker, who replied to my inquisition [Read More]

VIDEO: Mona Borland featuring melodic metalcore infused with grungy metal vibes

August 3, 2017

Get ready for your order! Here you go: Mona Borland is serving up some infectious melodic metalcore with a side of grunge metal making a perfect dish. Dallas based Mona Borland wanted to create something a little different and they definitely have satisfied us with their music! A little more about Mona Borland: A 4-piece outfit, their sound is best summarized as a cohesive blend of grungy alt-rock and melodic metalcore with powerful choruses. In less than a year, the band has quickly become a prominent name in the DFW metal scene, sparking a buzz with their 1st self-released EP, “Sad Sounds from Space”.           On paper, something like this—djenty space/post-rock-influenced post-mathcore—not only makes me look like I’m a genre whore, but it also doesn’t sound like something that’d be very good in execution. It’s tough to write hybridized metal, in my opinion; there’s very little room for success because you need to make the genres nearly seamless. Yet, Mona Borland manages to do this, and as far as I know, Sad Sounds From Space [Read More]

Get to know Eva as she is set to release her new music video for Bad For Us

August 1, 2017

Who is Eva off stage? Eva isn’t your typical, run-of-the-mill glammed-out, glitter-esque diva Barbie doll, which is what makes her such a sensation.  It should be noted that there’s a rumor—and this is just gossip at this point—but there’s a rumor that she’s planning ‘the biggest pop-up glitter party the world has ever known’ for her next single Over U…  I’m sure we’ll follow up with her about that… But who is Eva off stage?   “I’m a pop artist who is very much a real person. I’m not a super diva type, I’m relatable as a person. On stage I get glammed up and love sparkles everywhere, but off stage I’m pretty normal.”   Instant Karma’s remix of Bad For Us shows us both sides of the Hollywood coin –  made for Hollywood and made in Hollywood… What differentiates Eva from the vixen DJ duo, Instant Karma, is pretty simple, which is why they make for such a bomb collaboration.  Two colored-hair, pierced up DJ beauties jaw-dropping the crowd with their looks (and music) at swanky clubs and in-the-know parties are about as [Read More]
