[Music Review] Yuri Koller “Open Doors”

Yuri Koller is a Toronto based vocalist, songwriter, and producer. His latest effort, Open Doors, came to us via a short sweet email from the man himself. It is a mashup of hiphop, RnB, and soul. Personally, I struggled to find any soul esque notes in his music, hence it just being a contemporary R&B…

[VERY, absolutely RANDOM POST]

Currently, my hair is in small plaits that look like “who did it?” Seriously, I think that the song that perfectly fits the current state of my hair is Amazing Grace. So what does this have to do with the fact that China’s economy is going to overtake the U.S. sometime in 2020? Nothing, jack…

[Review] Trey Songz “Chapter V”

RTrey Songz has a new album out entitled, Chapter V. Kai succinctly sums it up as: lacking depth, showing no growth, if anything, regressing creatively as an artiste. Scathing review but, as a fan, probably even stan simply put, I’m beyond devastated by this lackluster release of an album. It has been three years since I last bought…
