Mobb Boss: “Lil Lady” – the depth, perspective and hunger of a performer

Being respected, revered and admired as an emcee is what often elevates a rapper from being one who merely strings together words that rhyme into an appreciated lyricist of the highest order. However, while there are a long string of spitters and scribes that have come along, the elite few who have found themselves mentioned in conversations and debates when discussing quality artists, have one thing in common: a track record of consistently delivering music that make the most of their lyrical abilities and serve as a piece of themselves. When speaking of today’s pack of underground orators, Mobb Boss

King Draper: “1992” – simplistic in its premise but unquestionably real in its execution

You can’t write about underground or independent hip-hop and not write about King Draper. Or at least I seemingly can’t. For the past couple years the man’s been a nearly constant presence in my journalistic exploits. And now, I’m sitting down again to review his latest 11 track project, “1992”.  The King hits me with dope music and I write about it, and I’m more than happy with the arrangement. If you’ve peeped any of King Draper’s projects before, what you get from this project won’t surprise you. Draper with his soulful, jazzy, production and his smart anecdotes detailing tales

Edgler Vess: “Violet” – essential to your hip-hop collection

Every album that Edgler Vess releases, breathes with a distinct personality, each a shape-shifting assemblage of personage and programming that sounds more like a kind of miraculous hyperlinked sound collage than rap. His lyrical feats go unmatched for sheer idiosyncrasy and insight; beyond rap enthusiasts, many of his strongest supporters are probably writers and music heads. A master of the microphone and the beats, Vess has constantly swapped out his tools and themes, avoiding revision and instead choosing innovation. When Edgler Vess does what he does, he’s impossible to ignore. He’s profound, he’s impressive, and he’s damn entertaining. In short,

Samie Bisaso releases the video for “This Is Why”

What if I were to demand that you love me?  Would you?  You might say, “Why should I love you?”  And you would be right to want reasons for my demand for your love. God has demanded our love (Matthew 22:36–38); it’s the most important commandment of all, according to Jesus.  Shouldn’t we ask for reasons to love Him? The Bible contains many answers to the question of why a person should love God. Sometimes though, we don’t have the time or are in the right place to search through the bible for answers. However music is often the simplest

Calle Ameln: “Moving On” – blending pop and country rock themes

You have to give credit to Calle Ameln. He has got a canny awareness of what it takes to make a great sounding record in any musical style. Calle who has always blended modern roots music with a hint of blues, folk, country, and rock, into his releases has recently expanding his horizons and musical palette, draw from many more influences.  Whatever the motives, there is no doubt that on his latest, still to be released single, “Moving On” he has tapped into yet another source of sure-fire high rotation, radio-ready sounding music again.

In doing so, whilst transcending most of the usual range of roots music’s lyrical and stylistic touchstones, he has managed to still stay firmly planted in the signature sounds found throughout the rest of his releases. In further experimenting with mixing in modern pop elements, into his country/rock roots, Calle has called upon a broad range of his musical talents to once again assist him this time around – his knack for a catchy melody, the skill for putting together a melancholy, yet uplifting chord progression and lyrical theme, plus his deep-rooted emotional voice.

The single which is due for release on the 21st of April, results in a lushly produced song that hints at boundary pushing, and which will almost definitely arouse the listener’s interest. Calle’s evolving new sound, will no doubt capture the hearts of those open-mouthed, wide-eyed, swaying fans who love a great melody and relatable lyrics over a warm musical arrangement.

As usual, “Moving On” is another heartfelt song and it re-establishes Calle Ameln’s blueprint for writing emotional music. Something he has always strived to do through most of his songs.

The clever meshing of universal themes like love and loss is the key to his songs being irresistible to any set of ears, regardless of genre preferences on behalf of the individual listener. It reminds us all that when songs have a high level of sincere emotional input the stylistic purity or genre hybridization, takes a back seat in the listening process.

To sum up, “Moving On” will inevitably garner Calle Ameln a truckload of new fans and followers because, when it is playing, it simply sounds great. People may hum and tap their feet to the tune or sadly reminisce on better days gone by of a broken relationship.

However, when you attune yourself to actually listening to the lyrics, you will understand that the narrator has gotten over his dilemma and is “Moving On”“I said I want to miss you but I don’t. You want me to kiss you but I won’t…” sounds pretty clear to me!
