Music Submission, The Modern Day Slave

Artist or Band Name: 
The Modern Day Slave

Rising from the deep caves of the South African music industry comes The Modern Day Slave with new age experimental rap instrumentals who many may call the future, he raps about social issues as well as self conscious raps about personal reflection and development. Whether it’s crying out “fear is the man in the mirror” or “me and my brain , living our life in vain just Hoping to gain , pretty b****es cash and pain” he uses clever word play and a smooth flow to please listeners ears. It’s only been months since I started producing and writing lyrics and I have to say I have found my passion. I’ve always had a soft spot for music at the age of 13 I played my first instrument a saxophone and I knew from then that I wanted to make music in my life, though certain life experiences lead me to different places , experiencing the world I learnt a lot about myself and how my destiny unfolds . 2019 I published a blog on the topic modern day slavery and so the journey began . The more I discussed about modern day slavery I was learning myself and it came to a point where I see myself as a slave to modern society April 2020 I started producing beats on my laptop that’s when I also started writing and reflecting on my own personal experiences I see music as the best form of expression for me it’s where I can explore the limitless possibilities of creativity.

Performing to over 1000 people, opening for Magnum, Focus and Carl Palmer, they were described by Hard Rock Hell magazine as ‘unlikely stars who stole the show’, and by eFestivals as the ‘highlight of the festival’.

“Vocals that drip with passion and longing, ethereal flute and the achingly bluesy low-down guitar. Unashamedly progressive in its outlook…  gets under your skin with its elegant music and heartfelt vocals… an engrossing musical experience. ‘Broken But Still Standing’ is a brilliantly perceptive and original work of art that enthralls with every listen. Taken as a whole it is an utterly immersive musical experience that will captivate and enlighten the listener, Hats Off Gentlemen Its Adequate has to be one of the most creative and innovative artists out there today.” Prog Radar

Starveya-Moontide
Artist or Band Name: 
Starveya

Hello,

This is Aaron from the band Starveya. Our new single "Moontide" is set to release at the end of this month and I hope that someone at BBS might be interested in featuring it. I have included the official press release below. Thank you for your time.

Aaron Martinez-Starveya

STARVEYA is set to release “Moontide” on May 29th, 2020, their first new single since 2018’s “Olde Crow”. Available here: https://soundcloud.com/starveya

STARVEYA is a psychedelic, alternative rock band from the fringes of Los Angeles, California. Originating around the turn of the millennium, their music can be described as a fusion between the classic studio recordings of the late 1960’s, and that of the heavier grunge movement of the early 1990’s. The band exemplifies both of these elements in their 2013 EP Stellar Womb, coming together to showcase its own fresh, modern sound.

“Moontide” is inspired by Bob Dylan’s take on folk music, particularly the historic, "My Back Pages". STARVEYA guitarist and primary songwriter Aaron Martinez, adds that the subject matter of the song was originally inspired by the tragic death of Pink Floyd’s Syd Barret. Gradually, the focus shifted to include all people throughout the millennia that were considered crazy or foolish in their own time, but later looked back on as geniuses, innovators and prophets. “A madman today is just a hero tomorrow” and “the saviors, they never get saved” are a few lyrics from “Moontide” that illustrate the lives of such visionaries as Giordano Bruno, Galileo, Socrates and Jesus Christ, who had the misfortune of being ahead of their times, and whose importance in history is only fully realized posthumously.

STARVEYA is currently in the studio working on their upcoming, full-length album Abandon All Muses, which is slated for a 2021 release.

After being released, Eli touched down in Los Angeles, where he became a member of Savage Squad Records. He then re-released CICI garnering notable attention of many.
