"Pound-4-Pound" by BiGGs (Rap/Hip-Hop artist from Florida)

"Pound-4-Pound" is a three-track southern gangsta single featuring the original, instrumental, and a capella versions of BiGGs' "Look Good." BiGGs' has the vocal ability to intimidate as well as to bring the ladies to their knees. He has a great singing voice as well as a great flow reminiscent of the Notorious B.I.G. and Lil Wayne. The backing music sequence supports this intimidation/coercion dichotomy, as you get a thick, bumping beat with subtle and varied accents and quirky yet atmospheric synths. The second track, the instrumental version of "Look Good," gives you a whole different perspective on the track and allows you to focus on the dramatic hints. The a capella version stands on its own as well; you definitely feel the rhythm without hearing it, and it paints a complete picture of BiGGs' talents as an emcee. This single is recorded excellently, so the track sounds great as a whole and broken down. "Pound-4-Pound" certainly leaves you wanting to hear more of what BiGGs has to offer the music world in both arrangement and vocals. If you enjoy the Miami style of hip-hop, you'll enjoy this CD.

"Kisses in the Evening" by Dynamic Destony (Electronic Artist from Florida(FL))

"Kisses in the Evening" by Dynamic Destony is an enjoyable '80s-influenced, hard-hitting club album that features pulsing rhythms, thumping beats, and a sound comprised of many different electronic elements. This album is simultaneously energetic, aggressive, loud, and smooth, and it doesn't waste any time in giving you the urge to dance. Shades of '80s bands like Dead or Alive and Human League are ever-present in both the arrangements and the vocals, but Dynamic Destony create a unique sound by combining this with electronica and trance elements. With "Kisses in the Evening," you get power and pump as well as catchy melodies and flavorful vocals. The production quality is excellent, and the songs are all ready to spin. Standouts include the title track, "Kisses in the Evening," which bursts out of the speakers with a fat beat, strong vocals, and extreme danceability. "My Angel" features classic '80s hooks and opens a window into a bit of a darker side of Dynamic Destony's sound. "Baby Don't You Want Me" is a good choice for a closer that starts out very minimal and erupts into an epic final burst of energy. If you enjoy '80s synth pop and new wave combined with electronic and club beats, give this excellent CD a spin.

"Outlaws and Renegades" by Galloway and Kelliher is a hard hittin' country rock album with a southern rock attitude. It is an album put together by veterans of some 20 years, and it shows. There is a great deal of energy coming through the speakers when listening to these tracks, with solid arrangements and good musicianship. The vibe is positive. The lyrics are delivered well, sound good and are well harmonized at the right time. Highlights are the opener "Rebel Rock," with heavy guitars, attitude and an intent to rock the house."Virginia Moon" has a nice relationship between saxophone and guitar, and a strong vocal performance. "She's Got the Rhythm" is your classic southern rock tune with some fine guitar and harmonica work. If you like Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Allman Brothers, you'll enjoy this one.

"A Thought" by Bob and the Fritsch (Rock Artist from Florida)

RadioIndy is pleased to present Bob and the Fritsch with a GrIndie award for their CD "A Thought"
"A Thought" by Bob and the Fritsch is a twistedly eclectic collection of songs that are a reflection of a journey through one man's mind - Bob's mind, that is. The sound is experimental and is influenced by 60's Brit rock and surf music. Your ears will stand at attention while listening to this album. It is unpredictable and creative while retaining a classic sound. Highlights include the title track, "A Thought". Bob's throaty spoken word vocals mixed with beautiful surf progressions combine to produce a winner. "Duality" has a nice bouncy rhythm mixed with unassuming guitar tracks. "Microscopic Dot" features a beautifully played acoustic guitar progression and gets intimate with Bob's voice. If you like Lou Reed and Leonard Cohen, give this album a try.
