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

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

Alien Skin: “The Wicker Man” – there’s space and dynamics to the instrumentation

In August of last year we reviewed George Pappas aka Alien Skin, a long-time keyboardist and co-songwriter with chart topping Australian band Real Life, who had a multi-million selling ’80s smash with the track, “Send Me An Angel”. Having made the transition to electronic music in the early 80’s, influenced by the Gore/Wilder version of Depeche Mode, Pappas is an authentically schooled musician when it comes to things analog. Alien Skin’s critically acclaimed album ‘1980 REDUX’, recaptured the glorious sounds of real vintage analog synths and rhythm boxes, as well as the authentic auras, atmospheres and moods, of a period that spawned innovation. During February of this year, Alien Skin dropped a new track, which does not feature on the ‘1980 REDUX’ album, entitled “The Wicker Man”. Pappas explained that the track comes off one of his many hard drives containing his back catalog of unreleased music.

So what does “The Wicker Man” tells us about George Pappas aka Alien Skin? Practically nothing new, and that’s the great news! What it does, is confirm, from my personal point of view, that Alien Skin, alongside Depeche Mode, Gary Numan and Orchestral Maneuvers in The Dark – though stylistically different between them – are the only pioneers still able to make relevant, authentically sounding synth-music.

It is what I used to, and still call, electronic music with soul. It has absolutely nothing to do with the sample-based, groove box electronics currently all the rage. Not that there is anything wrong with the new stuff, it’s just a different beast that delivers different levels of enjoyment. It’ the same difference of enjoyment I perceive between a vinyl recording and digital download from iTunes.

If anything “The Wicker Man” proves that Alien Skin has musically aged better than most if not all of the musicians of his generation proving that he was a modern prophet, and remains as such when it comes to synth based music. Pappas’ voice is almost used like an instrument, as his vocal style shifts to suit what is needed by the song. What’s surprising to me is how warm the sound is – the timbre is comforting while the lyrics issue a series of warnings to the listener.

The gentle but insistent, atmospheric backing-track, floats by, confirming images of a dark expanse of space, with plenty of room for the vocals to wave their melodic way through the song. Even though there’s space and dynamics to the instrumentation, there’s haunting tension and a great sense of scope.

In a perfect world this track would sit amongst many year-end polls. The grand theme and sound deserve to be soaked up by as many people as possible. “The Wicker Man” offers up a great song and motif that will pay you back with repeated lessons.

It’s a track that certainly lends itself to persuading you to immerse yourself and explore other songs by Alien Skin. “The Wicker Man” takes what George Pappas aka Alien Skin has been steadily doing for much more than a while now, and reinvents it, boosts it, increasing its vibrancy and electronic power, and then bringing it into the expanse of the modern music landscape.
