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

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

Jason Miller: “Accel.” – an obvious amount of talent beneath a complex set of skills

The album “Accel.” by Detroit artist Jason Miller is both melodically stunning and bass bumping goodness. From the space-age track “My City” and the growling “Radiant Signals” to the driving “Lustrous Flow”, I was already hypnotized by the unique sounds and infectious rhythms three songs deep. This 14 track album plays heavy on the emotions and really utilizes its sonic elements to build a strong connection with the listener. Miller frees the inhibitions of every sub-bass raver lounged in front of a pair of speakers. He is a gifted producer with an obvious amount of talent beneath a complex set of skills. He blends classic, soul, blues, jazz, R&B with commercial EDM, drum and bass, techno and even influences from Japan. “Accel.” emerges in the exhibition of Miller placing a strong focus upon each of these styles within the electronic stratosphere.

You don’t have to be a fan of electronic dance music to appreciate that this album is one of the finest of its genre. If you aren’t convinced, the best you can do is drop a few of these tracks onto your playlist and let the bass rule your workout. Jason Miller’s formula builds more layers, more levels of energy and gets higher and higher in pitch until the drop kicks in and it peaks and breaks into another interesting phase.

This makes sure you stay locked on while the Adrenalin pumps through your veins. This happens so beautifully on “Dawn Breaks” which is unhurried and atmospheric before the syncopated drums set in to set the tone and rhythm.

“Bass Quakes” moves in a similar way, between the liquid and dubstep extremes, and continues to layer every instrument perfectly. Guest vocals cement “I Remember Everything” as a standout. The drum beat, paired with a slow-moving synth line and a playful riff in the will make you want to move and not stop.

The track builds its layers up slowly, and with each addition becomes even more fun. When it reaches its peak it comes back with a sexy synth riff that works in time with the bass line. As the genres of electronic music continue to grow and evolve, trends will come, go, and be beaten to death. But what artists like Jason Miller do is bring back the integrity of electronic music.

“Nero Orchestra” has this apocalyptic, tense feel that builds drama and sets things up for the listener to expect grand things from the record. The track features some rumbling bass and frenzied electro rhythms under flamboyant orchestral movements.

“Flashing Hearts” adds a cool haunting element to the music, whilst the keys are strong in its wispy way, Miller conveys this sense of euphoric pleasure mixed with melancholy. Production wise the track features a bright blend of heavy hitting rhythms and razor sharp synth notes for a sound that is equally as dramatic as it is catchy.

Miller is great with the production on “Accellerando” in that the clapping beat, the keyboard breakdown and the shimmering video-game tone of the synth notes create an intensely playful essence to the song, making this a complete package that you can just lose yourself to.

On “Single Serving Savior”, Miller again provides us with a great sound for the song with his blend of thumping bass and 90’s styled synths, creating a funky moody that acts as the perfect dance floor companion. One of the very cool and unique things about this album is its ability to easily switch styles. Any good album tells a story, and that story shouldn’t just be confined to the same style.

The risk of putting something on your album that is completely different from your main sound is admirable, and in this case it pays off with tracks such as “Manuel Nightmare” and “Final Mix”. This isn’t an album set around mindless build-ups and drops; it’s so much more that what you would expect.

The two final songs, “Accel Saga” and “Shin Accel” further evidences how this album is full of catchy electronic-riffs, slow-builders and frantic highs; an all-engrossing set with each song carefully intertwined with the other, though totally different between them.

What Jason Miller accomplishes with “Accel.” is a reigning in and fine-tuning of what he began to develop previously. There is evidence of a stronger concentration on composition and arrangement than just delivering simply stunning sounds.

In short, this album is definitely worth listening to. The longer you listen to each song, the more you can take apart the layers, and see how much skill went into creating songs that work well on their own but manage to hold together an album with equal share.
