theDOLLDAZE – Blind Wilder (MP3)

“You ever been love blind?” theDOLLDAZE asks on her latest single “Blind Wilder” right before a crash of mood music hits. I’ve said it before and I’ll continue to say it, theDOLLDAZE doesn’t sing, she doesn’t even sang, this is my friends is a tour de force of vocal acrobatics. A girl with a guitar, the voice–not a voice and legs to die for. What’s not to like? The track is a buzz single from her upcoming album Mystic Novel: to be cont… Listen and download “Blind Wilder” below.

Photography by Kendrick Daye

The energy was high for Ben Carson‘s “Melodic Monster” EP release party this past Thursday at WonderRoot. First up was Jack Preston. Jack Preston’s set was definitely hip-hop inspired, the only one of the night. Jack breezed through songs from his projects. He ended with the amped track “Psycho Mystic,” a song that calls to the mind Outkast’s best. Continue reading Rock & Roll Lives On At Ben Carson’s EP Release Party

Sye Spence’s “Mad Mad World” At 529 In East Atlanta, GA

Good weather, good people, and good music is all you need. The vibes were right in 529 this past Saturday for Mad Mad World. Sye Spence‘s EP release party sponsored by Art Nouveau and hosted by Coco & Breezy brought out an eclectic mix of fashion lovers, artists and music heads ready to party to the sounds of what’s new, now and next in indie rock music.

Ben Carson opened the show with booze infused performances of his songs “Selfish,” “Isabella” & “Wasted.” Sandflower, aided by lights on her fingertips, performed second. By the time theDOLLDAZE was on stage, the entire 529 had turned into a mosh pit. The singer went through songs the crowd knew by heart including “The Hard Way” & “Words.” Her guitarist got so into the performance he smashed his guitar all over the stage by the last song she performed.

Of course that’s a hard act to follow. But Sye Spence was intent on doing just that. Dressed in a zebra striped cat suit and six inch feather laced heels Sye Spence entered the stage like a Diva and belted through “A Merican Dream.” Her performance was a mixture of Beyonce and Lady GaGa, just enough theatrics to keep you entertained and more than enough vocal skill to catch anyone’s ear.

Sye’s EP Mad Mad World is available now. Take a closer look at photos from Mad Mad World taken by GreatEclectic. Click here for more. Watch this neat video wrap up below.

“Noise Porn” Show At Studio 1-5-0 In Atlanta, GA


The most anticipated show of the Spring season has finally come and gone like most great things do. Noise Porn debut last Thursday at Studio 1-5-0 off of Marietta St. in Atlanta, GA. Headed by Kendrick Daye Aka Great Eclectic through his online magazine,  Art Nouveau Magazine, Noise Porn has transformed from a mass musical mixtape to a grand concert that included the best artist found in Atlanta. The list can go on for days starting with Rahbi, Corinne Stevie, the Doll Daze, Sye Spence, Al K!ng and even myself, Ben Carson. Even if you didn’t come for the music, just the energy and vibes of the show was enough to be in attendance for.

Free beer was being passed out in the house party form of white Styrofoam cups giving everybody a chance to get let there hair down for the upcoming weekend. Everyone was dressed in their own creative fashion form from the performers to the attendees which made this a true red carpet event. If you happen to drive by the studio, you would have definitely have gotten a few inspirations on your nest outfit. Hosted by 102.5 radio personality Zamir aka “Green Tea,” Noise Porn was ready to bring out the forces that everyone had been waiting for…

First up was new artist Guy Anthony who performed his song “Banger” and his Noise Porn offering song “G.L.O.W.” Shining in a sparkling red shirt laced with a red bowtie with matching red Nike sneaks and Fresh Printz shades on, Guy Anthony along with yours truly danced across the room in true glow fashion. Being his first time performing, I am glad to have been a part of Guy’s performance because he is bound to come off the ground faster than a GI Joe strapped to a bottle rocket.
Next up was rock star diva Sye Spence who dominated the audiences attention from their eyes to their ears. Her energetic yet soulful singing filled the room as her black, leather dress draped with silver chains caught the eye of everyone who dared to look. I had the pleasure of playing guitar to her track song “A Merican Dream” which is on her debut EP, Mad Mad World due out August 28.
For this being one of my first performances, I must say that it felt good to bring a song I made in my room out to the world. “Temptiation” is a song that I made some time ago which was featured in Art Nouveau Magazine. I took a few hints from the late Jim Morrison and did a short intro poem verse before the bass dropped for the song. I also performed one of my first songs called “Apple Tree” with the help of Sye Spence who added magical adlibs to the song.
After my performance,  I called Macon, GA star Al K!ng to the front to perform our Noise Porn song “Higher” which features me on the hook, this time singing in an R&B twist lending a hand for Al K!ng’s awesome verse. Al K!ng has an energy unlike no other and he definitely shows it through his music with songs like “Arts & Crafts” and “Beer in a Wine Glass.”
Next, Nigerian representer Naira stepped to the microphone and broke out with her Noise Porn contribution which was her seductive song “Nightmares.” Ready with her back up singers, Naira also performed her song “Overdrive” which offered a more faster vibe than “Nightmares.”
As if dressed for a Victorian funeral, the Doll Daze appear in the midst of the darkness with her band as they broke out with her song “Let It Blow” after she downed the inside contents of her flask. “Let It Blow” appears on her EP ACID REPORT: the missing peace along with another song that she performed titled “The Hard Way.” She ended her grand performance with her live rendition of her Noise Porn song “Illuminate the Sky.”
The show continued with Nouveau Music’s long running artist, Corinne Stevie. Dressed in true art fashion with the most shiniest, embroidered jacket on this side of the Mississippi with her trademark yellow Docks laced and ready for combat. She started off her set with her song “Cristal on the Moon,” produced by Miami resident Y Diz. She then went into her remixed Noise Porn rendition of her song “Grace Jones” which is more upbeat than its original version. Corinne even performed an old classic of hers, “Club Kidz” which is off of her first album Space Oddity.
After her performance, it was time to perform the Noise Porn’s album titled track “Noise Porn” which played through the first verse due to the absence of Khool Cardi. After the first verse, it was time for me to reappear to rap my verse on the title song (yeah, I rap too). In true rock star/gangsta fashion, I ran out on stage bare chested with baggy Girbaud jeans, and boxers completely visible. It was funny to actually rap again in front of a crowd as I had not done that since high school. The memories. Corinne Stevie came back to the stage with me to smash the end of the song with a hot verse where she says, “how the hell you drunk off fame and you only had a little sip?” Classic.
Last but definitely not least was the Hollywood star Rahbi who caught the attention of every eye in the room and outside of the room as he sported a bare chest with African tribe markings all over and wearing fur pants that I’m sure Animal Rights would have a fit about. You never know what to expect from a Rahbi show and he definitely entertains your every sense. Backed by an African drummer, dancers and even a guitar contribution by Brandon Thomas who performed with Anthony David. The sex poised musician performed his hit songs seducing the crowd after being escorted to the stage by Madame CJ. Rahbi is definitely the new Prince of the decade.
If you were looking to see the best of what Atlanta has to offer musically, the Noise Porn concert was definitely the place to see them… for free. From new artists to the ones you already love you couldn’t have gone wrong with this one. From Sye Spence’s daring attire, the Doll Daze’s boisterous performance, Corinne Stevie’s hypnotic vibe, to Rahbi’s sexual healing, there was every bit of a reason to be excited about this event. Through Art Nouveau Magazine, Kendrick Daye has always put on a good show, but I must say that this one tops them all. Not only because I performed (hehe) but the energy that was composed at Studio 1-5-0 was felt from the outside of the venue to the inside. Be on the lookout for Noise Porn II… I know you won’t want to miss it.

"Perfect Attendance" at 529 in East Atlanta

Do the ladies run this mutha? Apparently they do. I got the great opportunity to check out Fadia Kader’s “Perfect Attendance” show at 529 in East Atlanta.
