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

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

Daud Aur Yahudy: “Home Bound” – The sounds are deep-toned

A former professional athlete in the NFL, now turned singer-songwriter, Daud Aur Yahudy has released his EP “Home Bound”, which follows the re-release of his critically acclaimed debut album “Soulful Life Within”. Daud has earned his right to experiment with his sound and release something that tells us who he really is. The eloquently presents his unique version of future soul lined with a touch of love, spirituality and enchantment. His distinct flare allows him to appeal to the masses without becoming a cookie-cutter R&B and soul singer. The silky smooth, 6 song EP features peaceful and melodic vocals that bounce over luxurious beats which move between solo piano accompaniments through to fully fleshed out arrangements. The sounds are deep-toned, the melodic vocals shimmer and the beats stick deep in your bones. The entire piece is fluid and cohesive while showing the diversity Daud Aur Yahudy hoped to express.

Listeners can easily glide from track to track in a sort of thoughtful, blissful mood – smiling, thinking, and head-bobbing. True to its sort-of surprise arrival, the recording feels like a vital step ahead, in a career that’s already featured big statements and a change of direction.

“Home Bound” opts for a smaller set of songs, bringing in unique and original songwriting in order to bring a fresh soundscape to the EP. On the opener Thy Will be Done, Daud’s signature vocal thread plays over piano flourishes. As the track builds we are introduced to the introspective lyrical flair and effervescent vocal twists. It is a solid beginning.

By the time you reach the second track, “Sword Swinging”, you realize the production is great, the feel is sober, the beat is subtle, there are no trash featuring. The sound is crisp and everything is beautifully drowned into emotion-stirring reverb.

There’s a quality to Daud Aur Yahudy’s voice that has long been gone from the genre. The whole thing doesn’t taste like hollow hype and everything feels finally sincere and honest. The concept is solid, and there is not one moment of overproduced mainstream fodder here. Not even on the upbeat “Dance”, with its thumping bass drum and electro punch.

What we’ve got on “I Do” is just another glimpse of the greatness of Daud’s creations. He has the ability to do a lot with little, as he brings a hint of nostalgia in this harmony-rich arrangement. Drums, bass, keys and a clean guitar drive a luscious but mellow backdrop.

The layers of ascending vocals does what it takes to completely mesmerize the listener. The tone and mood stays very consistent throughout the EP, and I applaud Daud Aur Yahudy for never abandoning his goal for this project. Though savory and soothing, the music never fails at capturing excitement and enthusiasm.

Such is the case with “Be Careful” which builds from a quite whisper to a full blooded vocal performance from Daud. His goose bump inducing voice again leading the ways in showcasing his skills in the ‘less is more’ department. There is a specificity to this recording that makes it unique among the genre’s catalog even as the production retreats into his comfort zone.

The title track “Home Bound”, thumps and shakes like it has an actual heartbeat. Built on a rich and dynamic, organic sounding production, the song is full of emotion. Showing more poise and restraint on the verses, the chorus soars, incorporating an expanded vocal range, and more oomph all around.

Listening to the entire “Home Bound” EP, the authenticity and emotion is indisputable. The production nuances plays a gargantuan role in giving off certain vibes, which end up being about as important as the lyrics and the vocals themselves. Ultimately, Daud Aur Yahudy just got better, thanks to a truly compelling EP.
