Monjyoti – “Neighbor Syndrome” is meticulously structured

Monjyoti Bhattacharyya known by his stage name, Monjyoti, released his second official single “Neighbor Syndrome”, taken from his upcoming album, “Hypnosis”, recorded in collaboration with music producer Papu Gogoi. I don’t even need to hear the rest of the album. This single is simply a dexterous, dynamic and sublime smorgasbord of instrumentation and lyrical canny, on a level I’ve not heard in a long time. Music can’t always be this good because we would have nothing by which to benchmark its ingenuity. There are sections that are nice mellow journeys to somewhere else and there are downright monstrous sections that

Omar Bowing – “Paradox” – is simply breathtaking in its composition and emotive power

Atmospheric, ethereal, moody, dark, progressive … these are all words that come to mind listening to the opening bars of “Paradox” – the latest track from Omar Bowing, featuring singer Tyson Yen. The music is as one would expect from this consummate composer and Guitarviol player – engulfing and entrancing. Using a whole host of rock driven instrumentation, it should not be surprising that the soundscape is lush, expansive and blasting. “The idea of the song,” explains Bowing, “is about the recognition of the power of a Paradox to challenge or even destroy a concept, idea, belief, etc., that is

Twenty three year old Brandon Nelson aka K Swayz, has been producing for about 8 years now, while he’s been an artist for a one year. The Charleston, SC creative is currently promoting his 11 track project, entitled, “1st Born”. Since this album is meant as an embodiment of the artist’s skillset, it only makes sense that he shows a lot of flexibility. He delivers a lot more than the obvious slide between rapping to singing and juxtaposition of up-tempo vibes and down-tempo tunes. Right from the opening track, “No Matter The Cost” ft. Colossal Capone, he drops mind-blowing switches

YellaCatt – “Super Power Pussy” – exudes an energy that is captivating

YellaCatt’s latest single debut album “Super Power Pussy”. Introduces one of the finest new female talents I’ve heard in a long time. I say new, because she’s new to me. ‘She’ is of course none other than Daniella White aka YellaCatt. A painter who has created her own successful headdress atelier – “The Plumed Serpent’’. Daniella is also sound healer, reiki master, and clairvoyant. So she wears many hats, which all seem to fit her perfectly well. Her approach to song writing is fresh and intelligent, while her performances exude an energy that is captivating. I’m not sure if she

Ozaka Bondage – “Tiny Giants” is a colorful, richly textured arrangement

Ozaka Bondage is an energizing indie-electro-pop band from Frankfurt on Main that will motivate you to climb that mountain, ask that girl out, or start that revolution you always wanted. They is nothing short of a bombastic bunch of talented musicians who smoke on their instruments like no one’s business. The accompanying video clip proves it with nothing hidden from view. The groove is infectious, the musicianship is on fire, and the audio mix sparkles.  “Tiny Giants” hits all the right buttons for me. Peaks and valleys in all the right places – even in the solos. Everything builds

Eid℮tic: “Infinite Hope” Is Filled With Creative Soundscapes

Anthony who resides in South Florida was born in 89’. He is an independent artist who produces hip hop using the name eid℮tic. He recently released his Ep, “Infinite Hope”. Of the Ep Anthony says: “This EP starts off in a vision through my own sort of; ‘Persistance of Memory’ bending time to my will and not understanding change… From there it takes on a life of its own.

Anthony mixed and produced the entire EP including vocals and beat creation. Apparently no sampling was used with exception of the drum breaks and vocal snippets. It’s hard to pinpoint who Eid℮tic sounds like. He seems to build and expand on the rapping styles of Aesop Rock, Eminem and Andre 3000. “Infinite Hope” is a surprising, unique, and complex hip-hop Ep.

Eid℮tic has mind-blowing metaphors mixed with his thought provoking poetry. He creates imagery in the listener’s mind that is nothing short of genius. You may not feel the power of his lyrics and messages the first time you listen to the Ep. It may not even be the second. But given the chance, you will learn to adore these tracks as they grow on you.

If you are looking for catchy hooks or an abundance of choruses, you will not find them here. Neither will you find flashy hip-hop party or banging beats. In fact, the production value of this album has nearly as much to offer as Eid℮tic’s intelligent rhymes do. The album is filled with creative soundscapes. Most of the beats are slow and comfortable, never overpowering Eid℮tic’s vocals, as they are the main focus of the music. Actually, the slow music mixed with his fast rhymes make for an intense listen.

If you are not into music that provokes your mind and makes you think or if you struggle to get inside the music because of the complexity of the messages; then this isn’t for you. Eid℮tic is for people that thrive on complexity, originality, and for people that look for a challenge when they listen to rap. This is independent hip hop at its best.

Eid℮tic stands apart from many other rappers, due to his ability to deliver lyrics that paint a picture so vivid, it makes you feel as if you’re talking to him directly in the street. However, “Infinite Hope”   is an Ep that you will need to listen to real close before you can truly grasp everything. Even those tracks that appear simple have much more to them than you might think on the first listen. Of the seven tracks, I particularly appreciated “Introduction: Amidst My Abyss”, “Upside Opposite”, “Inbetween”, “Jibber Jabberin’” and “The Quest For Questions (ft. Jacquelynn Camuto)”.

A large number of underground rappers tend to talk about themselves and the faults of mainstream, but Eid℮tic doesn’t go toward that direction at all. He just sticks to what he wants to talk about, simply avoiding all the Hiphop clichés found in mainstream.

All in all this entire Ep is simply an excellent piece of work, the more you listen to “Infinite Hope” the better it becomes. Especially as you begin to unravel Eid℮tic’s lyrical labyrinth; this is as good as underground or independent rap is right now, and it will be very difficult to come close to, let alone bettered!
