Bizeeee: “Looking For It” – an out-of-this-world scenario!

What separates #Bizeeee aka #4ez from many of today’s rappers, is his indestructible delivery. Every verse no matter what he is rapping, he relentlessly pound his rhymes into your head mercilessly, with bone crushing stanzas and a ruthless attitude. Every word spoken shows an aggressive mood and seemingly cannot be stopped by anything. With this intensity also comes a very dramatic and cinematic driven production. This intense style is especially shown 4ez’s latest single, “Looking For It”. This song is driven by a rhythmic drumbeat, hissing hi-hats, and harmonized by futuristic and spacey keys. This is a chance for 4ez to step

Quintin Tarintinto: “No Self Pity” – dense articulation!

Tallahassee, Florida rapper, Quintin Tarintinto has his 2019 fifteen track project, “No Self Pity”, out right now. This is the record many of Tarintinto’s contemporaries would love to make, but they don’t have a sufficient enough state of consciousness to draw inspiration from, or truly focus the menagerie of their minds upon. It’s the most topically cohesive, palatable and headily conscious Tarintinto ever been for an entire set of songs. His universal vision makes it all work together in perfect, coalescing, high-tech harmony. A less knowledgeable Quintin Tarintinto might have asked compelling questions and never get to present the answers projected

3Mind Blight: “Make This Right” – transcribes emotions into music perfectly

Let’s begin with the fact that 3Mind Blight doesn’t make music for the fans or the label. In the era of rappers who are doing it for the gram, 3Mind Blight is all about the art of self-expression: he isn’t rich, he isn’t cocky, and he respects those who came before him. His style is not rap focusing on bling or hedonism, instead he observes and tries to teach us everyday lessons about ourselves, but his focus is also knowing he is better now than he once was and only plans to get better, something that should be recognized as

Flo: “Mix in a Water” – all of it is crisp and gorgeous!

James Florio aka Flo, is a Toronto, Canada based producer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. His signature style combines diverse musical elements and genres together to create an immersive listening experience. The rich mixture of delicate sounds, booming basslines and silky, chopped vocals will keep listeners coming back for more. His latest single is “Mix in a Water”. Is there any way to describe the music of Flo other than stylistically shimmering, and rhythmically hypnotic? Not really: write down those words and free-associate as much as possible with eclectic and luscious, and chances are you’ll have written Flo’s press blurb. The Flo

Capo 2G: “Pullup” ft. KirkoBanz – a tidal wave of aural sensation!

Capo 2G is a Hip Hop artist currently based in Las Vegas, Nevada. Originally from Lagos, Nigeria, his unique, island fused sound which he defines as AfroHipHop is one of the many factors giving rise to his growing fan base. Capo 2G’s close relationship with A-listers such as Rae Sremmurd gives him the opportunity to learn from the front lines as he prepares himself to step into the spotlight. He begins his first solo tour in Trinidad, Colorado on February 21st. This isn’t exactly a startling revelation, but hip-hop has always been rife with emcees who style themselves as unrepentant

J.R.Clark: “Zenith Spokes” – Capable of balancing and articulating his conceptual goals

For decades hip-hop has seen myriads of artists fleetingly captivate the attention of listeners

Natalie Jean: “What Would You Do For Love?” – a show-stopping exhibition

Admittedly I have been waiting years now for Natalie Jean to surpass her previous levels of excellence; she had arrived quietly with not much fanfare, and she steadily declared her arrival with a number of albums, singles and collaborative efforts. Needless to say I was impressed. Yet, while I immediately acclaimed and understood that Ms. Jean was indeed extremely talented, she had, as far as I was personally (and secretly) concerned, yet to produce anything indicating she was even close to showcasing what I suspected to be her fully unrealized potential—that is of course until I listened to “What Would

Jevil Project: “Shade” – Positive artistic aggression!

The Jevil Project is a France-based instrumental metal act, who does not perform live, but prefers to create music meant to be listened to. Jevil Project is proficient at marrying sludge metal riffery with dirtier post-rock guitar melodies. Trudging, down-tuned riffs drive each song, while subtle melodic movements develop on top. This pattern works to fantastic effect on the 4 track EP – “Shade”. There are tons of incredibly inspiring moments on this album. There are also plenty of riffs that will make your head bang uncontrollably. Moreover there seems to be sense of adventure on the recording, and with

Mike Masch: “The New Amplifier” – the underlying focal point of his talent is the production!

The New Amplifier is the brand new album from rising Hip-hop producer Mike Masch. The media hype states that the album comes with a “complete collection of thunderous 808 bass, mesmerizing synths, hip-hop strings, powerful brass, smooth piano, guitar riffs, all guaranteed to amplify your night! With enlightening and inspirational wordplay, the album is a call to push for more, to be different, to be unique. To reach for higher!”

The question is, just how close did Mike Masch come to fulfilling those gargantuan artistic promises? And for those who don’t know, just who is Mike Masch to start with?

Mike-Masch-coverMike Masch, from Ann Arbor, MI and is an American music producer-singer-songwriter. Growing up taking piano lessons at only 5 years old and listening to his dad’s classical music 8 tracks, he realized at an early age that music was a passion. It wasn’t until his teen years when those classical 8 tracks turned into a huge enjoyment for hip-hop music. After experiencing a variety of different musical genres while growing up in Michigan, Mike eventually furthered his education in music production and audio engineering, and began work as a DJ. His discovery of music production opened avenues for him, leading to the release of his debut album, and now this titanic 67 minute, 17-track follow up, entitled “The New Amplifier”.

Wow. That’s the first word that came to mind every time another track ended on this album. Mike Masch is a genius. It’s that simple. He does not fail at anything that he attempts here. This album is plain incredible. The lyrical content tells a great story. It’s not just another rapper singing about generic topics, ruining all sense of musical talent with autotune. It is a journey that Mike Masch walks you through, holding your hand the whole way. And when I say walk, I mean walk! Mike’s rapping style is unorthodox, steady and paced, going for dramatic vocal impact rather than fast technical raps alla TechN9ne, for example. It is obviously an acquired taste, and one that grows on you steadily track after track. From “Belief Revived” to the heartfelt “Now You Know”, or “Ready or Not” to “Rain Fury”, he gives you strong insight into his true inner feelings and thoughts.

Mike-Masch-350The amount of things Mike Masch succeeds with on with this record is very high, but the one underlying focal point of his talent is the production. It is what sets him apart from his colleagues and on par with many of his peers. Mike Masch is a through and through skilled music producer, blending a series of epic electronic soundscapes that most rappers would die for. The richness of the tones and the variation in moods make this a thrilling listen from start to finish. Mike Masch isn’t just some fly-by-night rapper making music for a buck. Much like Radiohead has done, Mike seems to want to push his music forward, busting out whole walls with just one melodic piano line, as on “Music Is Life”. My perception is that even if Mike dropped the rapping he has the potential to become a much sought after music producer in the game.

Mike Masch’s musical range and creativity with “The New Amplifier” is second to none. He does a great job of capturing the soul and moment in every song, by making you feel the emotion behind everything he is saying. In short, the album is brilliant. The rhymes are clever, the music is extremely rich, while the emotions are raw and the themes are totally epic. This album is musically pleasing, emotionally resonant, and entirely relevant. It is a very well composed musical journey, and one that you should absolutely follow!
