Vinnie Vidal: Changing the Hip Hop Genre

Published

on

The Hip Hop and Rap genre for many seems to have become repetitive and lacking in originality. However, newcomer Vinnie Vidal is bringing a shift to the hip hop genre with his custom composed sounds and uncompromising integrity. Being taught by some of the greatest people in the music industry, Vinnie Vidal’s versatility is unmatched.

The singer, songwriter, and composer is gaining momentum and attention within the Hip Hop and Rap music genre with his unique sound and versatility. Vidal released his first single in February 2020 and has since produced 17 more singles.   He brings a shift to the hip hop genre with his custom composed sounds and uncompromising integrity.  Vidal’s distinctive sound is an infused Eastern flavor blended into a modern Western sound while integrating jazzy instrumentals into rap, such as a saxophone.

Vidal started his love affair with music at age 8 and composed and directed for a church choir at age 14. He makes his beats from scratch, writes the music, sings, and raps. Vidal developed a team and label,  Royal Play Records, which provides  consistently high-quality music.  His mission is to produce music that brings self-awareness to the listener while being infused with positivity and the power to heal the mind.  Vidal’s compositions focus on high quality classical mixes, rather than the traditional low frequency and destructive vibes.  Vidal believes in bringing trendy, entertaining music to the table without the profanity, sexual exploitation, violence and social injustice currently portrayed in mainstream music and media. 

Hailing from Baghdad but now residing in Canada, Vidal is a testament  to the rise of independent artistry, self-publishing and promotion over the traditional route. Vidal also explains how he understands what it takes to make quality music and which instruments are currently not being showcased. He aims to broaden the genre listening experience by infusing these sounds in his custom made beats.  

Vidal advises up and coming artists to take  a little bit of information from everyone because there is always something to be learned from everyone.  He explains that no one will see your vision clearer than yourself or hustle harder than you.  If you rely on others for validation you are setting yourself up for failure.  

“Short cuts make long delays” from J..R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring  is one of Vidal’s favorite quotes. He says “I love this quote because you really have to be willing to do the work. Many people want instant results with no hard work. It’s the turtle that wins the race!”

EDM Maniac: Safe Raving During COVID-19

Published

on

It’s been almost a year since the United States government officially decided to shut down the country to mitigate the rising coronavirus cases. Limiting activities down to only the essentials may have been great for our country’s health, but the benefits did not always translate well for businesses. If a company wanted to survive through the pandemic, they had to learn to adjust to this new world. Despite the fears and challenges that came with it, EDM Maniac, the premier source for all things EDM, was able to quickly find new ways to continue to serve their passionate fans through drive-in, socially-distanced, and virtual concerts. 


Today, EDM Maniac is primarily known as a digital publication, but their history is rooted in hosting live, in-person events. When EDM Maniac’s founder, Devin Lezama first moved to Los Angeles, he recognized the need for a space where the EDM community could unite. To fill the gap and pursue his passion, he started throwing underground raves, which eventually evolved into the sophisticated brand we know today. Understandably, hearing that the country was shutting down met him with lots of uncertainty and fear. 

“When I first got the news that the country was shutting down, I immediately freaked out because I knew live events would be one of the first things to go,” explains Lezama. “The majority of our brand is centred around our shows and events. It’s pretty much a part of the EDM Maniac’s DNA.”

Having a massive component of their business model challenged was not easy, and for a few weeks, they wrestled with the idea of throwing in the towel altogether. However, less than three months later, they were ready to hit the ground running again with some new, fresh, and safe ideas.   

In June 2020, EDM Maniac traveled to San Antonio, Texas to help promote and market a series of drive-in EDM concerts to allow fans the opportunity to safely enjoy their favorite DJ’s whilst remaining in their cars. With Covid regulations progressively loosening up, in October 2020, EDM Maniac decided it was the perfect time to finally start hosting live events again. In partnership with M3ATX, every Friday and Saturday they host CDC compliant events at The Venue ATX located in Austin, Texas. These parties give Austin EDM lovers a weekly opportunity to gather in a nightclub atmosphere and make up for lost times. 

Though EDM Maniac enjoys great music and uniting the community, health is the top priority at all of their events. “We take Covid regulations and the health of our community very seriously,” says Lezama. “At each event, we have a staff of security walking around to make sure attendees are always following CDC guidelines when it comes to social distancing and mask-wearing.”

For those who are still unable to make it to the live events, be it for geographical or health reasons, EDM Maniac continues to think of new ways to please their audiences. In their recent partnership with Insomniac TV, EDM Maniac will be delivering an immersive virtual concert experience every Thursday on tv.insomniac.com from 10 pm to 12 am PT from February 25th through April 8th. This gives fans the opportunity to party from the comfort and safety of their homes.

The coronavirus may have forever changed how live events are conducted and experienced, but EDM Maniac refuses to let this stop them. By continuously coming up with new ways to rave, they make sure the EDM community remains entertained and united, regardless of what life throws at them.
