Chantel Atkins (CEO/Owner)
I started The Rhythmic Lounge in December 2010. At its start, it was a fairly simple website with the purpose of giving people a place to promote their talents and network. I had no idea that less than two years later it would transform into something much bigger. The website then underwent a complete revamp in July 2011, with a brand new look and the addition of many new features, including the creation of The Rhythmic Lounge Radio. Following suit, the radio started out as merely a 24/7 stream of hand-picked music submitted by talented musicians from the website but is now an integral part of the company. Listeners from all over the world tune in regularly to hear the wide variety of music, as well as the
educational, musical and talk-radio shows that we now host.
The radios success has only made me realize The Rhythmic Lounge could take me in new directions everyday rather than the other way around, which is why a digital magazine seemed like the next step. Im incredibly proud to present to you hardworking artists and entertainers in this magazine and on the site, so enjoy!

!The Stereo Boyz Detroit, Michigan
Stereo Boyz consist of members Detroit Mixo (aka Applauze Beetz), Kid Boombox, & Mic Audio. Before becoming super group Stereo Boyz they were a part of the Rhyme Asylum (1999 - 2008), a group that claimed a reputation of being one of Detroit's most devastating underground rap groups. Performing since a young age, the three MCs have created an undeniable stage presence. They master the ceremony & have earned the respect of every artist they came across. Completing a three month tour across Europe in late 2011, then returning 2012 & 2013, with shows in Germany, France, Austria, Holland, & Switzerland the Stereo Boyz have been internationally approved by fans abroad. With Mixo & Kid Boombox coming from Detroit & Mic Audio from Chicago they have created a perfect fusion of the Midwest. Combining strong lyrics with catchy hooks, their sound merges the best of both worlds: clever rhymes & beats that any hip hop fan will nod their head or move their feet to. The mixtape Sound Check Vol 1 was their first group effort & has earned praises from rap fans worldwide. The Stereo Boyz dropped their EP Live from the Ghettoblaster on January 2011 and their highly anticipated debut album Carz, Clubz & Theatrez has released in the Fall of 2013. Constantly in the studio working, writing, recording, rehearsing at home & abroad on new ideas, beats, and rhymes the group has several mixtapes from all group members coming out making it impossible to be slept on. Currently finishing up solo albums Mic Audio "Hometown Advantage" which released Fall 2014 have been placed in rotation on MTV Germany. Detroit Mixo "#Fresh2Life" produced, wrote, & recorded in Berlin set to release Summer 2015 with Kid Boombox "God Particle" to follow. The Stereo Boyz represent the past, present, & future of Detroit Hip-Hop. Their combination of Detroit Motown and Chicago's House & Electro Pop sound has created a Midwest masterpiece. Now it's time to share that masterpiece with the world. #PeaceLoveUnity
The Rhythmic Lounge: Our readers/followers can easily Google The Stereo Boyz and read about your talent and background in the entertainment industry but nobody knows the true identity of the group quite like The Stereo Boyz themselves! That being saidwho are The Stereo Boyz? Mic Audio: The stereo boyz are Detroit's newest form of the modern day Motown sound. Appreciated globally. Detroit Mixo: A fine blend of past, present, & future Midwest vibrations. Huey Boombox: The Grooviest The Rhythmic Lounge: Were there people around you who encouraged and influenced you to really pursue your talent? Stereo Boyz: The People - Family, Friends, & Community. Individually and Collectively. The Rhythmic Lounge: Many artists have accomplished hometown following and notorietyThe Stereo Boyz included! How have you managed to go above that and also make a name for yourselves internationally? Stereo Boyz: By doing us. Somewhere in the music timeline especially in rap culture it became cool to imitate/jock/bite another artist style because its popular. That's not Hip-Hop or human. Even though there are 3 of us in 1 group. Our identity shines from bringing our individually in unity & that notoriety you speak of comes from always being honest and open with your music. People gravitate towards real lyricism. Real ideas and healers of the world. The Rhythmic Lounge: Your first group release as Stereo Boyz was Sound Check Vol 1. How has time, knowledge and experience shaped/changed your growth and talent from that point to now? Stereo Boyz: From rhyming together in grade school, to touring the world, to now doing this interview with you. We have come so far but still have a journey ahead of us. The power of knowledge from learning thru experiences is priceless. We couldn't have imagined the love and success Sound check did at the time. Over time, we learned how any project, big or small can catch the ears of people. We all grow everyday, so still today, we are still seeds and baby trees. The Rhythmic Lounge: What can we look forward to from The Stereo Boyz in the near future? Stereo Boyz: Better music and we'll continue to be real, honest and spreading peace in our music. We stay very active as musicians & have a lot on the way. Our music is a gift from us so we don't want to spoil surprises :) Currently released the single "Taxi". A song with a b-side & bonus cut. 3 songs for a great example of whats to come from us this year. Stay connected on social media (Facebook/Instagram/Twitter) for all updates. Its really us & we love to stay actively engaged with our people. #PeaceLoveUnityAndFun https://thestereoboyz.bandcamp.com/ https://soundcloud.com/thestereoboyz https://www.youtube.com/user/mixo81 !

The Rhythmic Lounge: Please introduce yourself and give the readers a brief background for those who arent familiar with you! KZ: My name is Samuel E. Johnson aka KZ. Legendary rap hip-hop emcee from Pensacola Florida. Winner of global best song competition in August 2015. Also i've featured in a total of 15 magazines including the XXL Freshman Edition 2016. Released 5 mixtapes and 2 albums. All under my KZ Entertainment LLC Company Independently. Distributed all from Florida throughout cities as high as Sydney Australia. The Rhythmic Lounge: Your path to where you are now with your life and with music was not an easy one. What advice do you have for those with a passion and talent for music, whom are struggling to make the right decisions and turn things around? KZ: My advice is you have too set your mind. And decide are you driven enough. Too risk it all if necessary too make your dreams of musical success a reality. If you are struggling too decide. Then maybe music isn't something your destined too do. I knew at age 9. I was born too do and pursue music and entertainment. So in my opinion I feel its not something you choose to do. But you are chosen too do. And if you are chosen by being blessed with the gift of music. Then you automatically know that your drive and grind mentality. Understands the pros and cons of pursuing it and becoming successful. The Rhythmic Lounge: Were there people around you who encouraged and influenced you to really pursue your talent? KZ: Growing up my only influences really were the artists/entertainers I grew up listening too. My friends and family all thought it was a waste of time. So because of that they never took me serious I guess. Nothing I'm ashamed or spiteful over. But actually I'm very grateful. Because that pushed my drive too another level. I realized that family and friends are always last too understand or embrace how great an artist really is. But fast-forwarding too my adult years. My kids definitely became the driven force I needed. Too motivate and inspire me each day too keep pushing. Of course now, I have a lot of key supporters. Who grind with me non-stop daily. And its truly an honor too go from. The kid who used to write and emcee in his room alone for hours everyday. Too now become a person with this great support system. Too help him pursue the same dreams he wanted growing up. PRICELESS The Rhythmic Lounge: What do we have to look forward to from you in the near future? KZ: Be on the lookout for my XXL Magazine Feature releasing June 22nd 2016. I'm also pushing too participate on the B.E.T. Hip-hop Awards Cypher 2016. So definitely tune in to that, which I'm sure you will lol. Follow all my social media outlets for all updates with me. And expect more great music releasing in August 2016 for you all too enjoy.

Album Reviews Dimitri Kovachev So Intensified by Patrick Ross Rating: 1/2
Based out of Orlando, Florida composer, producer and music publisher Dimitri Kovachevs works can be found in musicals, television, and film. His compositional stylings include pop, top 40, new age, R&B, jazz, smooth jazz, folklore, soundtracks, and classical music. In 1982 in Sofia, Bulgaria he won the National Contest for Youth Pop Composers and has since that time written over 250 songs for many top singers and instrumentalist. Many of these became hit songs in the 1980s in Bulgaria, while some have sold over 250,000 copies. In 1987 and 1988
Dimitri composed many cover songs for the Melody of the Year National Television Show. His music is part of the Golden Music Library of National Radio in Sofia, Bulgaria. His latest musical release So Intensified is a collection of smooth jazz instrumentals which showcases his composition and production talents featuring guitarist John Valeri on many of the cuts. The album sets the mood for quiet and un-obtrusive instrumentals that sit in the background of any occasion in the tradition of smooth jazz music. There is definitely a touch of European flavor and mood to the music, and the melodies are simple, but effectively blended with hints of new age and pop stylings thrown into the mix. The tone is often light and effusive of quiet romantics evening and dinner music. So if your musical taste appeals to quiet background music this albums for you. http://www.dimitrik.com/bio.html www.dimitrik.com https://www.facebook.com/Dimitri-K-448856081836475/ http://www.dimitrik.com/so_intensified.html So Intensified: https://youtu.be/67CyJDYpra4 Alhambra: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4G3irr11UBs&feature=youtu.be We will get by: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=71LdTwfaC3U CD Baby: http://cdbaby.com/cd/dimitrik1
