Vincent Krennerich – “Verlassene Stadt” – plenty of delicate aural color

Vincent Krennerich is a composer, songwriter and pianist from Germany. The artist, who has featured on our pages before, has released his double-side single, entitled, “Verlassene Stadt”, which translated, would mean ‘abandoned city’. The second track, contained in this set, is called “Morgengrauen”, which in English, would mean ‘dawn’. However if you heard these compositions, there would be no need to translate them, as Krennerich’s music describes itself rather poignantly. Though stripped back and basic solo piano, the key to the success of both these recordings, is the propensity Vincent Krennerich has in composing subtly fine melodies. Both tracks have

Rockstar Marcus is a melodic/ emo rapper from New Orleans, Louisiana.

Bernie Aka Birdbadas – “Sensual” shows a unique flexibility and verve

Bernie Aka Birdbadas wears many hats. He is an indie artist, producer, vocalist, rapper, poet, break-dancer and graffiti painter from Glyngore, Denmark. Most importantly, he is currently promoting his double single project, called “Sensual”, featuring the title track and “Everybody Wants”. In mixing and melody, these tracks are closer to uplifting trance and groovy house than anything else, and Bernie puts his bass front and center. His arrangements, consequently, are beautifully economical. Yet Bernie Aka Birdbadas manages to craft tracks far beyond the sum of their parts. In the wrong hands, the sonics he toys can sound overdone or repetitive,

Dynamics Plus: “Dynamic Universe Volume 9 Rocket Science” – A Wildly Eclectic Approach to Rap

Lenzmen producer and recording artist Dynamics Plus creates his sonic visions while taking the listener on a journey into the labyrinth of his imagination. It’s the inner mechanism of the Mind Action that leads us to a world crafted from Foresight that is ancient and futuristic, terrible and promising. His radioactive beats are created in Fallout Shelter Studios under the watchful eye of Doctor Atomics. This is intelligent hip hop from a lyrically enhanced scientist.

Dynamics Plus creates a Rocket Science album. This is the result when an expert lyricist is focused on crunching the numbers and crushing the formula. The remainder is a rocket ship blasting into orbit. Enjoy the ride. Finally we can say “This is Rocket Science”.

Most talented rap producers wish they could ply their verbal wares on the mic, while their emcee counterparts often hope one day, to be able to twiddle a knob or two. So what happens when these two rap’s renegade start flipping rhymes and beats for a full album?

For starters, you get a whole heap of possibilities as to where hip hop can go sonically. On “Rocket Science”, the bass lines and punctuated drums are sure to make the jiggy, jaded, and conscious bob their heads unremittingly. This album is a natural progression from previous works, with moods music shifting rapidly and without warning, tracks start one way, and then stop and morph. Musically, it is far less reliant on ‘standard’ Hip-Hop sounds, pushing more determinedly into funkier, soul, jazz and other keyboard induced grooves.

In fact, such is the wildly eclectic approach here that it almost begins to feel like an avant-garde form of beat production. Organic sounds are in abundance and littered across the whole album drawing from a huge catalog of sources.

The lyrical flow sounds like a mix between Q-Tip and Eminem. It’s so intensely musical, it doesn’t require you to like rap music at all. The lyrics are clever and occasionally brilliant, and the delivery top-notch. Every track is constructed with excellent beats, rhymes, and intricate word-play; these attributes definitely make this album worth the cheddar.

Unlike a lot of rap and hiphop artists, who are just out to make money in spite of the harm it does to the credibility of the culture, Dynamics Plus displays an interesting musical and mental progression within the genre, adding his own distinct qualities. From the opening moments of the album, there is a sense that what you’re about it hear is going to be different.

When the sounds of “Rocket Science Intro Esper Wish”, hits your ears, you are quickly convinced that the lyrical flow just couldn’t fit any better with this beat, and that goes for every song on this album.

“Rocket Science” showcases 18 tracks, but this is one of those albums where there are no single highlights. Simply put, the whole album runs as a seamless blend of music that is one complete highlight. I’d be lying if I told you there weren’t tracks that I like better than others, but I’d also be lying if I said that I ever skip to these tracks.

Bottom line: amazing production, superior lyrics and almost no time wasted. I seriously cannot think of any flaws that this album has. “Rocket Science” is a must; you won’t be disappointed by how good this album is, or how easy it is to listen to.
