Electric Violinist Asher Laub Captures our "Attention"

Electric violinist, Asher Laub, spent the last 2 decades entrenched in the new york tristate club date music scene, although you wouldn’t know it from his youthful looks. He obtained three degrees in the sciences from top tier universities and pretty much ditched them all as he started gaining international exposure as an electric violinist. This ultra-intellectual artist is pretty versatile to say the least. This also captures our attention in more ways than one. It's ironic that his new single is a take on Charlie Puth's "Attention". It seems this man's backstory is something that would already garner people's attention as well.

 So how does a bright young nursing professional with so many degrees end up in music? According to Laub himself, it's because the violin is his passion. He started out on it so early. In an interview, he states that he chose the violin during his formative years. And he was deeply involved in the Suzuki method by the tender age of 3.

 With a craving for music, Laub studied classical, growing up. However, he loves to integrate the violin into modern pop, electronic and hip hop music. Take for example his song "Neon Dreams". Laub has just finished his music video for it as well. It features a pretty complex break-dancing routine. If you think that the violin does not pair with upbeat electronica, this song would prove you wrong.

 The New York based artist loves incorporating edgy music into his repertoire. His party-animal side seems to peak out from under the covers, as do the original tunes he produces. The marriage of such musical dichotomies as classical and dance is exactly what makes Laub so unique. His high energy productions set him apart from virtually anyone out there. And forging a unique path seems to be exactly the niche that Laub is so comfortable in. He is reticent, it seems, to produce anything that appears slightly conventional.

 The feedback from audiences around the world regarding "Neon Dreams" seems to prove that people really dig what Asher Laub is doing. His previous accolades might pale in comparison to the admiration he may garner from putting a fresh take on Charlie Puth's hit "Attention". The music video has some surprises, including the technology that comprises of special effects. Through even his covers, Laub utilizes the element of surprise that seems to be working for him so well.

 Those who have little exposure to either genres of music may have difficulty understanding what Asher Laub is trying to do. Radiohead faced the same confusion when they forged their unique path as a band. But experimental music does not have to sound clangy. It doesn't even need to be dissonant. In fact, it can be down right pop music friendly.

 Laub is on his mission to break into sacred musical spaces. He co-headlines at Carnegie Hall on June 29th to help raise funds and humanitarian awareness. Not only is it sure to be an eye-catching performance, but proceeds are going to Haitian-Americans in Action. The charity aims to end child slavery in Haiti. Also, the charity helps needy Haitians world-wide, including the United States.

Ultimately, you will miss out if you don't at least try to see what all the hype is about. You will at the very least be impressed by Laub's dexterity.

Chris Brown celebrated his Dirty Thirty the right way.

In an Instagram post he uploaded on his Birthday Sunday (May 5), Chris Breezy couldn’t help letting his followers in on a “secret” about his Indigo album. As he celebrated his 30th birthday and impressive commercial success of his new song, “Undecided,” Brown revealed that his new LP will have a grand total of 30 tracks.

“IM SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS INDIGO ALBUM NOW! ( oh, and just to let y’all in on a lil secret) IM TURNING 30 so there will be 30 songs on this one. SORRY NOT SORRY,” the singer wrote in his IG caption.

While 30 songs may seem like a lot, Breezy’s previous LP Heartbreak on a Full Moon contains 45 tracks, and the deluxe edition includes a total of 57 tracks. Brown’s latest tidbit about the album comes after the singer revealed a handful of featured artists who will appear on the album. Expect to hear contributions from Drake, Justin Bieber, Tory Lanez, Tyga, Tank, H.E.R., Juvenile, Joyner Lucas, Gunna, Juicy J, Nicki Minaj and G-Eazy.

The album could arrive before the end of June. On April 26, Brown’s record label announced details about new albums from both Brown and Tyler, The Creator when they released their year-end financial results. Breezy and Tyler’s names are included in the list of “noteworthy projects” they’re expecting for the quarter ending on June 30. Both of their album titles are listed as T.B.D.
