DotCom: One of the best unknown recording/mixing engineers in Atlanta

DotCom: One of the best unknown recording/mixing engineers in Atlanta

Stephen Farrow, who goes by the musician name “DotCom,” is a GRAMMY-nominated recording and mix engineer, music industry veteran. Originally from Montgomery, Alabama, he has since become a part of the Atlanta music scene, getting his start within the hip-hop genre in the early 2000’s.

His original interest in the music world began at a young age. Having grown up surrounded by music, and with a gospel musician uncle who would let him experiment on mixers and sound-boards, he first began creating his music with friends in high school. Around this time, an experience in a Birmingham, Alabama studio left him hooked and determined to pursue music for a living. From that first taste, he fell in love with the different knobs, buttons, and faders, and all of the effects that they could achieve. He began a deep-dive into music creation, learning about beats, vocals, mixing, and everything in-between. From there he went on to go to Omnitech for digital media, and in 2014 became a recording engineer for Quality Control Studios. He has since worked with artists such as Cardi BNick CannonLil YachtyMigos, and more.

For him, mixing is a real passion, and he views the studio as a sanctuary and a retreat. It is the one place he wants to be, both on good days and bad. Through the music that he mixes, he hopes to form connections to others and to pass on the good vibes and incredible feelings that he gets from being in the studio. He hopes that the music he mixes will encourage listeners to connect to the listening experience; to dance when happy, to sing when inspired, to relax after a long day. Having had the opportunity to work with some of the top talents in the country, these experiences have cemented within him that the music industry is where he is truly meant to be, and he continuously puts forward his best work and strives to break barriers both for himself, and those whom he represents. He knows the cut-throat nature of the industry and has experienced it firsthand. Despite this, he has only become more driven to continue mixing, as it allows him to pursue his dreams while supporting the goals and ambitions of those whom he represents.

Having gone through numerous jobs throughout his life, from banker to warehouse worker, music and his dedication for mixing has taught him never to give up and to work hard to get where you want to be, and this is something he hopes to pass on to his clientele. Currently, he is dedicated to discovering and working with the youth of Atlanta, Georgia. His current project is with seventeen-year-old North Carolina artist, Luh Bri: a talented trap girl artist with a powerful flow and commanding style. He views signing artists and producers as his most significant achievement thus far, and the opening of the next chapter in his book, and he will continue to be entirely dedicated to the music, his craft, and creating the best tracks he can produce.

Currently, in addition to weighing in with The Hype Magazine, he is a featured product reviewer on the kaoticaeyeball.com site and can be found online at mixedbydotcom.com

[Video] Jayanna ‘Die For You’

(Atlanta, GA) – Soulful songstress, Jayanna’s powerful new single “Die For You” brings to light the role that domestic violence plays in communities across the country and the need for everyone to find their own self love to move past any drama they may be going through.

Developing her love for music at the youthful age of 6, Jayanna sang wherever she could; family events, church, funerals, weddings, plays, and talent shows. However, by the time she turned 16, her calming reality began to take a turn, as she was put out of her mother’s house and forced to find her own way in life. This only deepened her passion for the musical arts as she found comfort in singing about the pain and challenges, she was enduring daily as a teenager fully dependent on herself for survival..

Over the next few years Jayanna was able to reorganize her life, find her voice, and make a name for herself as a passionate, independent artist in the Midwest. “Jayanna is a unique talent,” says Grammy-nominated Super-Producer Miykal Snoddy after hearing her music for the first time. “Her voice is very soulful and her lyrics display a wisdom beyond her years. When she sings, you can feel the emotion of the record and she has an innate ability to convey those feelings whether reflectively heartfelt or sassy and independent. She has the total package.”

Miykal loving what he heard from just that one single, reached out to Jayanna to begin working on her first album, and the rest is music history. Jayanna packed her bags, moved to Atlanta, and never looked back.

Versatile like no other, Jayanna’s sound has been compared to a cross between Rihanna’s Caribbean swagger, Beyonce’s female boss-style, and the soulful sounds of Amy Winehouse.

“Die For You” is the first single to be released from her album entitled “Mood Swings” and is available for streaming and downloads on https://www.jayannasings.com/ and across all platforms. Also check out “Die For You” official video via Jayanna Sings – Die For You.

Sir Calloway x SpiTTzwell – Boil Advisory (Video)

Sir Calloway releases visuals for his powerful new single “Boil Advisory” produced by SpiTTzwell (video directed by Ledoox2).

Calloway defines our current, nationwide state of emergency through pivotal storytelling and wordplay. Bar for bar he breaks down critical times, pressing societal genocides, and devils in the form of politicians and the system.  Calloway delivers these harsh truths over soulful tones of piano keys and heart-pounding bass.  Sounds of police and ambulance sirens, alarms, and ferocious dogs serve as the hook and heighten the already hair-raising and bone-chilling emotion from Calloway.

“Boil Advisory” is not meant to entertain, it’s purpose is to shake citizens to the core with knowledge of what, why, when, where, how, and who are digging our worldly grave. Watch “Boil Advisory” and connect with Sir Calloway and SpiTTzwell below.

Elijah Rosario – Unorthodox Being

The debut of this artist was a shame to miss. In 2019 Elijah Rosario the star of Raleigh North Carolina put out his awaited EP Unorthodoxed being. This compilation is the perfect blend of the R&B and Hip Hop. For many it can remind one  of the combination of T-Pain and Chris brown  and T-Pain when T-Pain put together  The Best Love Song.

While we have seen Elijah Rosario as a singer/songwriter we have seen his lyrical versatility in this project, you hear the versatility in the track been here featuring Shogun.  From talking about making the bag and being on top he talks to the ladies in Drop It Low featuring Voyce giving us the strip club pop vibe. What caught our attention was the difference in the beat selection as the beat to focus, gives us the latin guitar strumming Maria Maria vibe that you can use in a club to dance with your partner. The project had nothing but consistent flows and vibes that not many people in today’s R&B has brought us now a days. It is refreshing to listen to and we suggest everyone takes a listen to this.

About Elijah Rosario

Elijah Rosario is a 26 year old R&B Artist/Singer-Songwriter/Recording Artist based out of Raleigh, North Carolina by way of Augusta, Georgia and he’s bringing that sexy and sultry R&B back! His relationship with music all started when he was only five years of age and started playing the drums in church. His love for writing began after he wrote his first love letter in the 6th grade, and judging by the reaction he received, he knew then that his words could make people feel something. He started recording vocal music in June of 2010 and has hit the ground running ever since. Artists such as Marvin Gaye, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Miguel, Rihanna, Drake and The Weeknd inspired him to pursue his passion of writing dope lyrics with beautiful instrumentation. He classifies himself as an “R&B Mood Music” type of artist. His music is upbeat, sensual, real life centric and most importantly personal. He always appreciates his lyrics being complimented by sick bass bumping through the speakers and being underlined with string instruments or piano keys. When it comes to writing he allows his palette to remain versatile.
