Shehzad Bhanji – “Dreams” – impeccable tone and technique

Shehzad Bhanji is a guitar virtuoso. He is mostly known for his proficiency on the electric guitar. Though his playing style at times would tend to put him in the category of guitar shredder, Shehzad is not from the pure shredder school, where most of the playing consists of running musical scales at blistering speed. His playing is more melodic and soulful, though he will shred if it fits the context of the song or passage being played. His latest album, “Dreams” highlights his skills and playing style clearly. His mastery and command of the guitar here, is unreal. His

King Femi – “Young Queens” highlights every element of his artistry!

King Femi is a Hip-Hop/Rap artist from Atlanta, GA. He doesn’t have a comfort zone. As a restlessly eccentric artist, he’s not afraid to change course, or to experiment. The elasticity of his catalogue keeps him tethered to hip-hop, as he bounces around all of its facets, like many of his successful contemporaries. With all this willful blurring underway, it seems more than fair for one of rap’s most versatile and dynamic figures to pivot towards the perceived success formula. His latest release is the trap flavored “Young Queens”. The track dazzles in its tightrope effort to remain endearingly deviant

Damian Sage – It’s impossible to listen to “Drive” without being genuinely moved

Listening to the single “Drive”, is a whole different and beyond glorious experience. Singer and songwriter, Damian Sage really outdoes himself with this one. The record, tugs at my heartstrings in the best and most beautiful gut-wrenching ways. I can feel the emotion as he sings each and every lyric. Released through Dark Spark Music, a record label headed by former Guns N Roses manager, and Grammy Award winner, Vicky Hamilton, “Drive” certainly gives me the chills each time listen to it. The two simple opening lines deliver the kind of powerful imagery most lyricists strive most of their lives

“Dead Duck” – SaFE’s rhymes are tight, and constant; he never misses a beat

“Dead Duck” is the debut album by Paterson, NJ artist, SaFE (Seven and Five-Eighths) an integral part of the M.O.B.Stars collective. The album loosely chronicles SaFE’s creative development and how it shapes his outlook on the climate of his art and industry. So how does this debut album stand up to what’s happening in the rest of the industry? It’s been an unfortunate trend in recent years for rappers to build their albums around two or three extremely powerful songs, while essentially using all the other tracks as filler. This, however, is not the case with “Dead Duck”. The record delivers quality from end-to-end, with little or no faltering. Sure, some songs are better than others, but every album has its ups and downs, even masterpieces. This is a refreshingly consistent album, and should serve as an example on how to make a 21st century hip-hop album.

SaFE’s delivery remains strong throughout the recording. He sounds like one of the new crown princes of the underground hip-hop world, and he knows it. You can almost feel it in the swaggering, yet commanding tone of his voice. SaFE’s rhymes are tight, and constant; he never misses a beat.

If anyone could have doubted what he is capable of doing, I’d be willing to wager quite a bit that they will be eating crow after hearing “Dead Duck” – and as if the fact that his vocal triumphs aren’t enough, the album features some great lyrical moments too, as SaFE works his way through topics such as “body image, the Reptilian conspiracy, abortion and domestic violence, courtship and matriarchal religions among other things.”

So, “Dead Duck” has great vocals and intelligent, well-constructed lyrics, but how does the music sound? This is where another one of the record’s greatest strengths comes into play: production value. You see, almost every song on “Dead Duck” was overseen by a different producer.

These range from what sounds like creative protégés to seasoned veterans, all putting in exiting work. The overall effect of having so many hands work on the album makes for a very unique experience. Each song maintains a certain sense of individuality, yet still feels similar enough to its peers to remain coherent.

The variety of samples, beats, and all-out instrumentation on “Dead Duck” makes the record sound virtuosic, yet incredibly polished. This album is a straight up example of how nearly everything can go right on a hip-hop album, if planned and executed with maximum commitment.

The lifeblood of the album though, is unsurprisingly, its songs. On the whole, the track list is quite exceptional. You have songs like “Hunger Music (Produced by CJBeatz)”, “Return Of The Hustle feat. TD Jakes (Produced by John Qwest)” and “Gotta Be Magic (Produced by BRAVESTARR)”, which are something like history lessons to make old-school hip-fans reminisce and new hip-hop fans drool over the delivery.

“Momentarily feat. Bretagne (Produced by Stringz)” and “Drake’s Lament [Wicked] (Produced by Arkutec)” reek of classic. “Man’s World Revisited (Produced by Nu Vintage)” has an exuberant feel to it, as does “Ghettoes Worldwide (Produced by Superstar O)”.

“Gotta Be Magic III (Produced by SevnthWonder)” features some of the best rhyming on the album, while “Krisna Parker [KnXwledge] (Produced by Arkutec)” begins with the defiant sounds of the narrator speaking out: “I wrote this song. I swear I wrote this song for everybody. You within earshot, if you’re what they call a hater, whoever, whatever you want, this song is for you…” “Dead Duck” is, at its core, a very strong album.
