D-Witt flexes the pen of a budding cinematic storyteller

I recently heard about an artist called D-Witt from Rockford, IL.  Illinois is the home of some prestigious sons who have left unforgettable marks on hip-hop’s history. I’m expecting an unfiltered rebel who is unafraid to bare his soul and burn down buildings. A fearless heart is a quality that makes fearless art, and I hope that’s exactly what D-Witt has arrived to present us.  So I press play on the first track called “Enemy”. The sound is open and strong-willed. There’s no doubting that D-Witt has something to say. The amount of care that goes into his lyricism stamps

Mortinus – “Star Chariot (Yellow Odyssey)” and “Oceania” – gently beatific music

As the months pass slowly into years, it becomes increasingly plain to all concerned that Danish electronic music producer, Mortinus is taking his craft very seriously. He has been extraordinarily prolific and has maintained an enviable level of quality in his releases. When approaching his two singles “Star Chariot (Yellow Odyssey)” and “Oceania” the question that arises is how will Mortinus sound fare in the altered musical terrain of 2020? Well the two new singles, are fine examples of some of the best ambient, chillout, downtempo and cinematic instrumental music being made today. Mortinus’ sound is alive and well, and his

Whether or not you’ve followed Stiff from the beginning, one thing has been apparent through the highs and the lows: he’s talented and confident – his latest single “Faith In Me” is a perfect example of that. Stiff Lauren once again takes

Cyrus R.O. – “Bones” is still a skillfully crafted song

I think I expected this music to be sterile and methodical. However, to my surprise, Cyrus R.O.’s new single “Bones” from his upcoming debut album “Deconvolution” is blazingly irradiated like bundle of energy that expertly marries the organic and synthetic. Underneath it all, a darker lyrical narrative dealing with “a character struggling with their gender identity, and the fear of social turmoil that comes with that.” Everything just grooves so well together; it’s a blend of sounds that I haven’t heard done this well from any progressive, jazz, or electronic artist in quite some time. It’s a masterful melding of electronic machinery with

Temperature Falls Release The Video For Their Latest Single “1-2-3”

The sound and atmosphere of Temperature Falls is built around somewhat gritty, blended organic-electronic sounding tracks that hearken the listener back to earlier times. Their latest track, ‘1-2-3’, is a seductive track that pulls the listener in with an eerie melody, sultry vocals and an ethereal reverberating atmosphere. Mixed beautifully, this is the perfect example of what to expect from this indie trip-hop/alternative rock duo from Oslo, Norway, made up of vocalist/lyricist Camilla, and multi-instrumentalist Ian J. Ward. ‘1-2-3’ is a gorgeous, melancholic song that is heart wrenchingly beautiful. Temperature Falls is one of those bands that are absolutely necessary

Keno Meechie: “Fame Before 18” – incisive lyrics and beats that spurn current trends

Keno Meechie is an artist out of Birmingham, who has been doing music for 6 years. Along with deleting endless numbers of practice EPs and singles, Keno has finally released his first official album, entitled “Fame Before 18”. Along with the release of this project Keno has suffered depression, and epic mood swings, etc. “If this one blow – I’ll really consider myself one of the luckiest 17 year olds alive”, says Keno. The music world is constantly evolving. Hip-Hop has gone from generic beats to songs where the base is louder than the lyrics.

Artists are constantly switching up their flows to experiment and keep the fans on their toes. In a time where music is becoming all about money and material things, Keno’s album is certainly a breath of fresh air. He has popped onto the music scene as a very versatile artist who mixes a street style with his emotional devotion.

I’ve long been aware that rap is the most adventurous genre of music in the game, so it was no surprise to hear the eclectic blends on “Fame Before 18” – but it is a fair surprise to hear that it sounds this good. For the sake of the project, Keno Meechie morphs his characteristic rap into various connotations, presenting fans with an album made up of diverse flows and rhyme schemes.

Twenty-five seconds into the opening track, “36 Villianz” and you can hear a young rapper teasing his creative range by launching himself to a genre extreme and then working backward, track after track, to his real wheelhouse, before finishing with another genre extreme – “Never Wake Again”.

“Fame Before 18” does make Keno sound like one of the more transcendent newcomer hip-hop artists around, as he moves through the varied flavors of “Ed Hardy, “Ms Indiana” and “Anti Niggas”. Of course, at seventeen, he’s not afraid to be different or to be classified as left-field. Hence, from the unusual beats to the multifarious flows, these tracks will grab your ears and twist them into submission.

Moreover, you just can’t help but make weird body movements when listening to Keno Meechie. The crowning achievement of this tape might actually be “Ms Indiana” with its crisp rhythmic inspiration and catchy vocals. It’s a pity it’s so short, being just under two minutes. Though to be honest “Anti Niggas” too, encapsulates many ear-worm elements.

Keno Meechie is a unique, if not unusual, talent. But uneasy times call for uneasy music. “Fame Before 18”, surpasses expectations, with incisive lyrics and beats that spurn current trends for a set that sounds unlike anything else in hip-hop right now. This is stuff you can either hate or love, depending on where you’re coming from, but you can hardly ignore it, if you’re looking for diversity in the genre.

Keno is not reinventing the wheel just yet – and at only seventeen he has plenty of time to do that – but he is definitely remixing the genre’s essential constituents. In a business where it’s common for an artist to cling and attempt to re-purpose classic material, Keno Meechie is running the gauntlet with his own ideas.
