Monjyoti – “Neighbor Syndrome” is meticulously structured

Monjyoti Bhattacharyya known by his stage name, Monjyoti, released his second official single “Neighbor Syndrome”, taken from his upcoming album, “Hypnosis”, recorded in collaboration with music producer Papu Gogoi. I don’t even need to hear the rest of the album. This single is simply a dexterous, dynamic and sublime smorgasbord of instrumentation and lyrical canny, on a level I’ve not heard in a long time. Music can’t always be this good because we would have nothing by which to benchmark its ingenuity. There are sections that are nice mellow journeys to somewhere else and there are downright monstrous sections that

Omar Bowing – “Paradox” – is simply breathtaking in its composition and emotive power

Atmospheric, ethereal, moody, dark, progressive … these are all words that come to mind listening to the opening bars of “Paradox” – the latest track from Omar Bowing, featuring singer Tyson Yen. The music is as one would expect from this consummate composer and Guitarviol player – engulfing and entrancing. Using a whole host of rock driven instrumentation, it should not be surprising that the soundscape is lush, expansive and blasting. “The idea of the song,” explains Bowing, “is about the recognition of the power of a Paradox to challenge or even destroy a concept, idea, belief, etc., that is

Colossal Capone, he drops mind-blowing switches

Daniella is also sound healer, reiki master, and clairvoyant. So she wears many hats, which all seem to fit her perfectly well.

Twizm Whyte Piece: “Betrayal” establishes the dominance of his craft

On his brand new EP, “Betrayal”, Twizm Whyte Piece draws on the same honesty and energy that has defined his previous work. Each beat is produced masterfully, and invokes some nostalgia while delivering a fresh experience with substance throughout. And when he gets in a looser, more naturally charismatic lane he’s got an expressiveness and charisma to balance against his flows that can be really compelling. On this 9 track collection, the award-winning independent artist refines his technique further. The EP’s pristine soundscapes repeatedly sidesteps the expected, forcing you to listen closely for clues to their unusual logic. Take the opener, “I See You Over There”. At first it’s a delicate, wintry landscape, but then it’s cresting energy lights up and pivots towards a new sound, as snatches of rapped verses weave and warp alongside processed metallic synth shapes, and from there the whole thing gets darker and stickier.

“I Know It Very Well” has a similar hypnotic effect. At first it billows and flickers, then slowly regroups around smears of minor-key synth, which flare and sizzle while Twizm Whyte Piece peaks in dazzling high-frequency rhyme intensity. Twizm has spent most of this career maneuvering deftly around a variety of beats, and on “Betrayal” he sounds less constrained than ever. Elsewhere on “Ducked Off”, the rhythm gives the music a firmer rudder, as Twizm delivers his verses in a cascade of pinprick melody, and a cosmic dirge of strings and playful keys. Sometimes it’s good to be kept guessing, as he moves in a number of directions.

The “Betrayal” EP draws from a lot of places musically, and rap’s roots are one of them. Twizm Whyte Piece opts for a more dynamic beat on “So I Go Hard”, and it really adds a cool dimension to the record. The beat digs right back into hip-hop’s roots, pairing it with some modern grandiose.

Twizm establishes the dominance of his craft several times throughout the record, and this track in particular which deals in the person, also allows for him to get a bit more intimate with his audience and to keep that connection going. With cerebral muscles and lyrical ammunition that could lay waste to the entire mumble rap wave, Twizm decides to turn down the tone a notch on “Yeah”.

He gets back to his groove on the playful and melodic “So Supa Saucy”, but it’s the slower emotional “Fly Away” which creates music with a purpose and a message to uplift and deconstruct the barriers between listeners and their struggles. Twizm flows so freely and takes you on a trip, floating over lyrics that cradle you within their arms.

“Legacy” shows off a lyrically enhanced beast manufacturing rhymes with raw materials of metaphors and punchlines that never run out of stock. The fact that he is a versatile, creative rapper with a palette of strengths and technical savvy, is again made clear over this funky bass synth-bass driven beat.

The album closes down in an explosion of synths and over-driven guitars on “Solo Dolo”, where Twizm Whyte Piece is blitzing across the beat. It’s again clear that Twizm isn’t here to stumble. There’s a refreshing quality to his confidence. This is a man who wants to translate his passion for rapping to the listener.

Each song to me feels entirely different to its processor but each displays different emotions through Twizm showcasing the musical talents in his arsenal and he cleverly uses it throughout the EP to take the listener on a journey from start to finish. The “Betrayal” EP is easily one of his best recordings in recent years.

MORE ABOUT: Twizm Whyte Piece is a multi-award winning independent artist, with over 160 performances to his name as well as a plethora of music releases and videos in his catalog.  Twizm is also owner of the Fcr247 Radio Station and the Diamond Edge Promotion Company.
