"Big Tunes Big Dreams: Album review"

BIG TUNES BIG DREAMS
Imagine living 100 years in the future.What are sights, what
are the sounds? What would your wildest dreams look
and sound like if they were made manifest? 100 years
into the future ….. without a diabolical world
war or a gloried messiah's return. What if humanity
got it all together and technology actually led us
into an evolved state of consciousness.
Everything was all good and
life was a never ending party. What would the
music sound like? Perhaps syncopated
melodies infused with high frequency metallic
guitar riffs, alongside deeply soulful and energetic
ambient compositions. But all hip-hop amplified to
uncharted waters of sound. Here's the kicker it's not
the future even though it sounds like it. It may
be the time machine that scientists have been
trying to create for hundreds of years, but took
a musical genius to deliver this vehicle to us all.
His name: Korise J a.k.a. Big Tunes. His vehicle:
his album: Big Tunes Big Dreams
a musical tapestry of genres ranging from soul to
electronica to boom bap hip-hop. And not a weak
attempt either, but rather a nostalgic blender of albums
like Prince's Controversy and Outkast's Stankonia
with sound's reminiscent of Massive Attack's Blue Flames
and Sweetback. Nonetheless, Big Tunes Big Dreams is more
than a musical masterpiece, it more than word's
could describe, it's more quality music for your money.
More albums should be made like this.

Bio

Towntroniks
Have you ever asked yourself why was music created? Further if radio stations, nightclubs and even turntables could emit the most mathematically precise sound, one that hits your hips and joints perfectly, what would that sound be? I present you Towntroniks, one of Oakland California�s most eclectic array of dynamic urban music. Comprised of heavy electric slaps by some of the bay�s most formidable artist, Towntroniks is a life preserver for an otherwise sinking industry. Spearheaded by master producers BigTunes and Key Hudson, Towntronik includes submissions and features by leading Bay Area artists Cava, FIYAWATA, Viveca Hawkins, Rico Pabon, Jallah, Jahi and Kirby Dominate to name a few. This collage of crunk club bangers stands to push musical borders right off the earth�s surface. Towntroniks blends the genres of Electro, Soul House, Hip-Hop and Pop into a blender to produce a rush that puts LSD way out of business. Playful but mature, frenzied but seductive, this compilation speedy RPM Songs cannot be compared or measured by any other compilation ever produced for it rips a wide hole into to space time continuum to expose a future centuries away. A celebration of music�s next stage, I give you, Towntroniks.
