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

J.R.Clark is a hip-hop artist based in Virginia Beach, VA. He started his career behind the mixing board as a studio engineer. In 2014 started releasing his own music and building a following in the underground hip-hop scene. Inspired by artists like Curren$y, Stalley, Big K.R.I.T, J.Cole, Rick Ross, Schoolboy Q, and Chance the Rapper, J.R.Clark’s latest project, an EP titled “Sunset Symphony”. If, after listening this recording, you’re under the impression that J.R.Clark is preparing to take over the world, you’re neither alone nor unjustified. 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

The Cataclysmic Variable: “Amplified Minds” has a sci-fi theme and begins with an invasion…

The Cataclysmic Variable is an underground psychedelic hip hop collective founded by artists and producers who have set out to provide their own take on hip hop culture.  With over a decade of producing hip hop beats and recording hip hop lyrics and their “amplify your mind” focus, The Cataclysmic Variable team has the knowledge and experience to become one of the industry’s leading underground hip hop collectives. The Cataclysmic Variable recently released their mammoth 23 track concept album, entitled “Amplified Minds”, which has a sci-fi theme and begins with an invasion…

The Cataclysmic Variable project has some of those rare talents in hip hop. Lyricists include Collie Reeka, Kirbs, Tone Diz, Grim Singmuf, Riggz, Enigma, J. Cua, Ayah Light, Lindz, and Kuma Kai Akua. You just have to pay attention to every word that is said to enjoy this album. The way the rappers weave all their verses together is an incredible joy to listen too.

They are continuously in control, very deliberate and precise with speaking their words, and their timing. Obviously all these songs also come with some great writing. These are rappers who put as much thought into their words, as they do into their deliveries, and always deliver verses that are intelligent, unpredictable, and fully engaging.

This is an all-round incredible album. If like me, you are unfamiliar with The Cataclysmic Variable, they are probably pound for pound among the best lyricists in hip hop today. We know that skills don’t always translate into chart positions and sales, but as artists, vocalists and lyricists, they are in a rare class.

Intricate wordplay, coupled with gripping content set against a unique futurist theme makes for a gripping listen, which is added to having both male and female voices. Even though the world that frames the premise of the album is fictional, there are very many down to earth, poignant and personal moments interspersed throughout the record. “Amplified Minds” is simply solid from a musical standpoint and is an enjoyable listen from beginning to end.

One which you won’t finish in one sitting obviously, as twenty three tracks is a lot of mind boggling material to take in at once. Unless of course, you’re all about artificial listening – hooks, beats and the like. Something we don’t advise here, if you want to draw total satisfaction from your listening experience.

The Cataclysmic Variable go in deep here. They will touch and move you with their original story-lines, sound and thought, like few others have done. They display great insight, foresight and future sight.

There are also a bunch of talented producers present here, people like G. Singmuf, Riggs, T. Diz, and K. Loaf. Overall they deliver some very remarkable production when looking at the beats. And the way each beat serves it purpose, is just right for the song, as well as the overall theme.

This is classic experimental hip-hop; very refreshing crisp, succulent beats with nary a hint of bling, 18″ wheels or bitches nonsense. Now isn’t that a surprise for genre! Eschewing many of those pretty mainstream hooks also means there’s nothing to take the focus away from the lyrical interplay of each rapper’s flow and as well as the production intricacies.

There is plenty of lyrical interplay, while you can also sense a sort of perfect creative mind-meld between The Cataclysmic Variable members.

Mentioning single tracks or choosing only a handful of standouts, is a superfluous affair here, and would only subtract luster instead of adding to a very fine album and collective effort.  The Cataclysmic Variable focuses on quality, talent and service.
