George Barnett comes all the way from the UK and his song "Reflection" is definitely making its rounds around the net. Barnett adopts a Rock infused Neo-Soul style over "Reflection" and from what we know, he has performed this live on BBC. We say to him, nice work!
"Reflection" is coming off of his EP entitled "Animal Keeper" which is available now.

Alright, this is a little change of pace from what I am usually used to from this dude. Wellz B just his me with his new track called "LAWDHAVEMERCY" and this is something I wasn't expecting. The way the track is played out it seems like there are stutters in the hook and phasers on the vocals. Wellz B only has one verse on this track because he shares his song with Mobkid The GoldenChild. This track has been out for only an hour, so I decided to give Wellz a little push so he can get some listeners and potentially new fans after this post.
My only criticism is, I was hoping that Wellz wasn't going to go all the way left field on this one. I remember my man for songs like these. I hope Wellz can get where I am coming from and I want to help out by being honest. There is nothing wrong trying different things in your music but make sure you have in mind the ability to bring your current fanbase over to what you are trying to do. I respect Wellz for evolving and picking up different pieces in his craft and his brand as a whole though.
Overall, Wellz if you are reading this man on behalf of Doing Justice iShine we wish you the best of luck in the reception and promotion on "LAWDHAVEMERCY". We hope that you get the best outcomes out of your tracks and we look forward to the EP "The Pursuit".
I give my "DJ iShine Approved" title to an artist that comes all the way down from Austin, Texas. Going by the name of Potent TAI, he started of as a shy kid, growing up in the heart of Newark, New Jersey also known as "Brick City". He grew up in the peak of Hip hop's emergence into mainstream music, the early 1990's produced some of Jay's biggest influences which helped him create his own style. Some of his biggest influences were Krs 1, Bootcamp click, Biggie and Tupac just to name a few. After years of dabbling and just having fun with his talent Potent began perfecting his style and taking it to that next level so he could pursue something more serious. He then moved to Texas in May 2010 to start a new chapter in his life. Since he has been here he worked with Clear Channel on 102.3 The Beat as an on air personality,as well as worked in promotions.
Let's get into the song, "We Know" is a forceful track for the streets with a big beat brought to you by Base Bronson. Potent TAI calls out all the non-original emcees that only focus on cars, cash, and chicks. He is brave in his lyricism and he lets them know that he know's about the nonsense they are trying to dilute into music. Potent has a style reminiscent of Styles P, Craig Mack, and Jadakiss; a style that is very diminished in the Hip Hop community.
My advice to Potent will be, don't be afraid to step into other boundaries of your Hip Hop career. It is cool to call out those that don't what they are talking about and diluting the music industry in nonsense, but other than that step into other styles of music as well. I want to hear tracks about the ladies, tell stories and also show these dudes that you have the potential to not only take initiative, but to change the game as well. Continue to study your influences and take the baton off of their content and create more concepts to annihilate the game.
Other than that this track has been approved by me, DJ iShine.
It's nice to hear a cover from a talented upcoming R&B artist. Rochelle Diamante gives her all in Mariah Carey's "My All". The relevancy of the video is a little over a year old, but it is still good to show love to someone who is putting effort into doing what they love.
I hope to hear some original music from Diamante in the future, or if she has some she can send it over to us so we can post them up.

Justin Timberlake's track "That Girl" definitely deserves a visual. These three dancers come together and put on a very impressive dance routine to the R&B Singer's track. You can see that their dance follows a nice storyline within their rendition as you see two dudes competing for the attention of the only girl dancer in the video.
This has only been out for a month, so definitely show them love and press play and continue to support good choreography.
I am relatively new to DJ Paulette and her mixes. She is an international house DJ and this mix comes from her August performance at Itaca, Ibiza. This mix contains a variety of House/EDM music that simply keeps the energy going in the clubs. Paulette is one of the few DJs that have a tenure style in her House/EDM mixes.
I personally am a fan of Kat Dahlia. I am a fan because she brings something different to the Hip Hop community with her reggae-oriented style. I haven't heard something like this since the 2000s when I was in high school (lol).
Kat Dahlia just recently dropped this music video for her new song "Happy And I Know It". It is a very unique video because unlike her being in the club or on top of a sky scraper roof, she is in random places like plantations and murals. Dahlia most likely is expressing that throughout the video, you are seeing different things that make her happy.
If you are unfamiliar with Dahlia, I would suggest giving a listen to her single "Mash It Up".
Love Mansuy is the first artist that I have heard that has an electronica R&B track without a DJ on it or as a popular redux. LM presents "White Heaven" off of his upcoming EP, Barely Legal. This song is produced by Sam Hassan and is already making pretty big waves on the R&B music scene.
The production is very diverse because it doesn't sit in one box of sound. The song has three different styles of beats in it as LM sings. LM has definitely poetic verses in his presentation and the beat compliments his art profoundly. The track has a style of storytelling and reminisce, that only LM can produce.
Barely Legal is coming pretty soon. It should be nice to hear something different from the norm.
R&B newcomer Emanny recently dropped an EP entitled "Songs About You". The project is presented by SLV and the song that caught our attention was "Miss Me". This mid tempo love ballad features Slaughterhouse member Joe Budden.
Budden introduces the song with reminiscent tags bringing the listener to attention about the song then Emanny swoops in to tell his lady "You're going to miss me girl/ and the way that we made love". From there the song just unfolds into a grown and sexy love ballad in which Emanny tells her she was more than his woman to him, let alone the sex was something more too.
The whole EP is pretty diverse for an R&B singer and we hope that Emanny is able to win over a nice demographic with his compilation. With the uphill battle of new R&B out there (such as PBR&B and Electro&B), some of us do miss that vintage, glass of wine R&B in which only a few can master. If you listened to Jagged Edge, Avant or even Tank, you know what I mean.
Overall, this song definitely knocks and we wish Emann
