Anthony Vincent of 10 Second Songs Releases Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” in 42 Styles

Bohemian Rhapsody Thumbnail

Anthony Vincent of Ten Second Songs has released his newest video, Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” in 42 Styles, including such diverse artists and bands as System Of A Down, Frank Sinatra, Scott Joplin, and Bobby McFerrin.

“I disappeared from the internet for a month to finally take on my number 1 requested song. Being away from social media was very good for me an I highly recommend this to anybody. Maybe everyone should start producing songs in multiple styles just so they too could take a vacation from social media. Also, I want to thank E Rock of course for hopping on to make the Dream Theater part possible, because I can’t shred on guitar. But i can shred on the bass! Who knew!

Erock and I also have an album coming out in November, we started a band called Riptide and we will be releasing our next single within weeks.” – Anthony Vincent

Blacklite District follows no rules. With sounds of everything from electronic, EDM and hip hop, to hard rock and alternative, the band truly stands out from the pack of what has becomes today’s generic sounding “Active Rock”. Formed in 2012 by Kyle Pfeiffer and Roman James, ages 12 and 11 respectively, the band grew organically in their local music scene through the years to come. In 2011, BLD was discovered by Grammy Award-winning producer, Stephen Short (Paul McCartney, Queen), which resulted in a 10 day recording session at the world’s largest residential recording studio, Sonic Ranch, just outside of Mexico in Tonillo, TX. The group re-located to Los Angeles and played some of the most famous venues in the world for the remainder of 2011.

In 2013, the group released “With Me Now” as the lead from it’s debut album Worldwide Controversy. “With Me Now” immediately went to #1 on SiriusXM channels Octane and Faction, hit the Top 40 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Chart (#32), and sold 100,000 copies. BLD went on a very successful US tour with Saving Abel in Jan-Apr 2014, with 26 of those shows SOLD OUT. After a legal battle with their management and record label, Blacklite District went on hiatus in late 2014.

On August 23, “The Struggle” was release to radio and To Whom It May Concern went for pre-order at digital retailers. Revolver Magazine premiered the music video for “The Struggle” on August 25. The band also announced a 41 date tour called “The Struggle Is Real Tour”. Blacklite District released a Nightcore remix of “The Struggle” to YouTube on September 6, which got over 2,000,000 plays and resulted in the single breaking the Top 40 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Indicator chart at #36.

One month later, on October 6, the group released a Nightcore remix of “We Are The Danger” which got over 400,000 plays on YouTube. A couple of weeks later, the band released “Broken Souls” to radio, as well as a Nightcore remix which resulted in 500,000 plays and hitting #30 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Indicator. This was the second song in the month of October to break the Top 40 (along with “The Struggle.”)

“The Ghost of You and Me” was released as a music video and a Nightcore remix on December 28, 2016. The song was yet again a success for Blacklite District resulting in 400,000.

On January 20, 2017, BLD released “Living In A Nightmare” as the first single from upcoming album Instant Gratification. With a coinciding Nightcore release, “Living In A Nightmare” broke the Top 25 on the BDS Indicator chart, marking the bands highest spot in chart history. The song has been streamed over 250,000 times.

On February 24, famed radio DJ Lou Brutus posted the bands video for “Cold As Ice”, which was released the same day. The song scored a whopping 350,000 streams in its first week alone, and as of May 2017, has over 3.5 million combined views on YouTube. “Cold As Ice” serves as the second single from Instant Gratification. In the summer of 2017, “Cold As Ice” was added to Spotify’s “Rock Hard” playlist, and was put into rotation on SiriusXM’s alternative channel Faction. In October, “Cold As Ice” was added to rotation on SiriusXM Octane, and it’s Minecraft music video has over 10 million views on YouTube. There are about 4 videos about a Herobrine invasion with zombies and “nether watchers” and how the main character, a player in a blue suit, survives. There are 4 songs in total in the order of The Struggle, Cold as Ice, We are the Danger (possibly not from Blacklite District), and Just so you Know.

Blacklite District released their third album Instant Gratification on September 22, going Top 10 on Amazon’s Top Electronic Albums chart.

Steep Steps’ Ultimate Playlist!

We love original music, but who doesn’t enjoy a good set of live covers? So, in that vein, we’ve decided to ask some of our favorite emerging bands to put together their own playlist of songs that they would love to perform live. Check out Electronic production duo Steep Steps’ Ultimate Playlist below!

Alanis Morrisette “Uninvited” –  RÊVE front woman Athena Hiotis may be one of the few vocalists out there who could take on Morrisette’s stunning hit single, and don’t get us started on what we imagine would be some intense and complicated layers from multi-instrumentalist and producer Tony Correlli!

Amy Winehouse “Back to Black” – another brilliant piece that we could see Steep Steps taking to a whole new level!

Low “Murderer” – The folkish, crooning aura of this track was made for the subtle electronic brilliance that Steep Steps could bring to a live performance!

Pink Floyd “Wish You Were Here” – We’re more than confident that Athena’s haunting vocals would take the Pink Floyd classic to a whole new level.

Circle of Dust “Mesmerized” – A safe choice, but one that we think the duo could re-imagine in a unique way.

Queen “Bohemian Rhapsody” – A VERY bold and brave choice–many artists have tried and failed abysmally at taking on the iconic Freddy Mercury’s classic masterpiece–but we’re definitely intrigued.

Muse “Stockholm Syndrome” – Another unexpected and daring choice, but one we can get behind!

Bach “Invention No 13 in A Minor, BWV 784” – Ok, this would likely be the coolest modern cover of all time.

Queens of the Stone Age “Everybody Knows that You’re Insane” – the ballad-like quality we’re imagining taking place with this one would be a show-stopper!

St. Vincent “Cheerleader” – What Athena’s vocal style and Tony’s atmospheric composition could bring to this finale is giving us goosebumps already!

Kenny Dubman Releases Lead Single Off Debut Solo LP, ‘Reckless Abandon’

New Jersey Guitarist and Songwriter Kenny Dubman (Prophet) has released “Ain’t Too Late For Memphis” off of his debut, solo LP Reckless Abandon. “Ain’t Too Late For Memphis” and Reckless Abandon are available to order on his Official SiteiTunes, and Amazon.

” ‘Ain’t Too Late For Memphis’, the leadoff track from Reckless Abandon’, is a comeback anthem. It’s the story of a musician that’s been out of the game for a long while and longs to break back in, but is not quite sure about how to make it happen….yes, it’s a bit autobiographic! ‘Memphis’ is really just a metaphor for getting off your ass and jumping in with both feet, which is definitely the route I took to make the album. Wrote the songs, rehearsed the band, and got in the studio as quickly as I could. Full steam ahead with reckless abandon, literally and figuratively!” – Kenny Dubman

Purchase ‘Reckless Abandon’ Online:

Reckless Abandon is the first solo effort from NJ native and lifelong six-stringer Kenny Dubman, a veteran of 3 albums with NJ melodic rockers Prophet. Loaded with earthy, organic 70’s influenced hard rock, Reckless Abandon will most certainly fill a gaping void in today’s musical climate. “I wanted to make a song record first; making a guitar record was never really part of the equation” says Dubman, though guitar fans will likely want for nothing on this offering. Blending elements of Bad CompanyDeep PurpleKansas, and Lynyrd Skynyrd with subtle hints of QueenOzzyMontrosePink Floyd, and RushReckless Abandon pays homage to it’s 70’s rock roots while still forging an identity of it’s own….due in no small part to Dubman’s powerful, raspy vocal performances. Lyrically, Reckless Abandontackles some deep and dark subject matter; not much boy-meets-girl fare on this record. “I’m not sure where these song ideas came from; I feel like they were channeled through me rather than originated within….like I didn’t really write them. I think the great Tony Joe White sums this syndrome up best: ‘….the music is all given to me anyway. Writing and playing and doing music not for the benefit of having a number one record, just to let it out of your soul, means somebody has fed it down to you.’ That’s right on the money”. Origin non-withstanding, Kenny Dubman has created (or channeled) something special on this record.

Do it justice. PLAY IT LOUD.
