"CHIOKE DMACHI"

CHIOKE DMACHI MAKES EXCITING POP MUSIC THAT TAKES YOU IN UNEXPECTED DIRECTIONS. CHECK OUT "RAIN" FOR A CREATIVE SONIC EXPERIENCE. - Modern Music Maker


"Chioke Dmachi – Heartless Reign"

No doubt that this guy is working with a fusion of sound that’ll attract all the right attention. I think both “Heartless” and “Crown” would make killer choices as singles as well; considering the fact that “Rain” is already out there…you gotta dig the fact that Chioke is spoiled for choice when it comes to what he could release to the people out there as the gateway into his new EP single-wise. “Crown” takes that signature R&B/Pop/Electro style Chioke thrives in, and adds a bit more club, celebration, and cleverness to this composition. I mean if you’re asking me personally, I’m probably still a bit more partial to “Heartless” as my ultimate favorite or what I’d consider to be the most accessible cut on a universal scale – but I really love the energy that Chioke puts into both these first two tunes in review. I don’t know what his own opinion is on how far he’s gone with his career as an actor to this point in life – but I can definitely wonder what might have happened if he’d spent the last ten solely dedicated to music alone – you can hear the ‘it’ factor in this entertainer all the way through the vibe of “Crown” and how comfortable & confident he is in this setting. You can even hear it directly in the words he’s singing on this tune – he knows he’s right where he’s supposed to be on “Crown” – everything about this guy screams that he belongs in music. No faults or flaws in this tune either & nothing I’d even remotely change – Chioke sounds incredible and fully in control to match the empowered theme in the lyrics. Probably the most danceable cut on his new EP as well – “Crown” will keep you movin’ & groovin’ on the floor, but also still manages to provide a ton of sincerity through Chioke’s performance. Smart moves like you’ll find in the breakdown also create additional diversity in the sound that’ll definitely satisfy those looking for more than just another verse/chorus/verse artist – this guy puts a lot of thought into the decisions he’s making as a songwriter & performer, and as a result, there’s lots to keep you & your ears interested & stoked to hear whatever might come next on the Heartless Reign EP. - Sleeping Bag Studios

He is saying something that matters so I know the mainstream conformists (bullys)!will find something bad to say about him.! I love him!!! Two thumbs way up!!!!!!!!!!! Enjoy!!” - On-Opinionated Nikki

“Ironically debut albums are made to define an artist , to tell us who they are so we can feel comfortable about labeling them. good luck with this guy. Chioke Dmachi is an ever changing artist that is continuously open to what the world has to offer him...” - FG Magazine July/August 2011


"Chioke Dmachi"

“What is the overall message you feel is being conveyed through this album and through your music? To put it simply, being authentically you is the greatest gift any of us can be to the world.
I’m very passionate about the idea of embracing all of who we are as individuals. I feel every part that makes us whole is an asset. The more you get to know and love yourself the good, the bad, and the butt ugly the more happy in life you’ll be. God made no mistake when he made any of us. We were all created equal and with purpose so stop hating on yourself and live your life...” - 360Magazine


"New Music critiques August 2011"

“With his anti-Bullying song, BoyZ Don’t Cry This artist convinces us that he knows of what he speaks, investing each word with a passionate conviction that cannot be phoned in. The churning, electro-rock tune" has a dramatic MJ-inspired opening and economic guitar/keyboard lines,
Music giving Dmachi's voice free rein to vent vocally. Considering the timeliness of his message, perhaps he could lure a notable rapper to flow somewhere in the middle, and maybe even interest a diva like Aguilera to wail an outro.”
