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

Pale Blue Dot: “Only Love” – confident, clear, and proud!

We all have our different approaches to what kind of music makes our world spin but some bands offer so much to everyone, they make you feel alive and emotional. I just recently started listening to Pale Blue Dot – I know what their fans are thinking: “Where have I been?” I fell in love with my preview listening of their 2018 album – “Anatomy”. They definitely have a unique style in everything they have produced, and they have provided the variety, instrumental excellence and passionate vocals which appeal to a wide-ranging audience. Their artistry shows, as well as an honesty of where life has, and is, taking them. Pale Blue Dot is a band based in Charlottesville, founded by musician Tony LaRocco as a way to bring fellow musicians together to explore the possibilities presented by his songwriting. Pop, alternative, progressive rock, folk and bebop jazz are all sources of inspiration for the band’s ever evolving sound.

Pale Blue Dot strike hard from the very first listen. Quality writing and production make the presentation of their songs a pleasure to listen to. In an evolving line-up, the guitars add the bite and crunch the band needs to acquire its edge, while the bass and drums, drive the rhythm section through its many rhythmic complexities and nuances.

And then there is the immense band leader and songwriter, Tony LaRocco, on vocals and guitar. He quite simply turns in vocal performances you’d never have imagined possible. Throughout this record, he is confident, clear, and proud, discovering and displaying unexpected subtleties in his bluesy rasp.

It’s actually a little hard to focus on what the rest of the band are doing for the first couple of listens, because Tony’s presence is so dominant. His vocal melodies, are expressive, expansive, and totally considered. Listen to “Yesterday’s News” and “Suitcase”, to better understand what I mean by Tony being “dominant”.

Luckily, I listened through the album quite a few times, which allowed me to appreciate the brilliance of the other band members too. One of the most balanced and accessible tracks on the album, is the single “Only Love”. Upbeat and bustling with vibrancy, the track finds Tony LaRocco repping Charlottesville, alongside singer Yolanda Jones, and John D’Earth on Trumpet.

It’s a very fine performance from a collective who seemingly grow in stature, confidence, and ability by the bar. Bassist Drew Pompano and Johnny Stubbelfield on drums, drive the engine room with relentless zest on this track, while the shimmering keys by Butch Taylor fill in all spaces between the guitars of Sam Wilson, Peter Balogh and Will Thomas Reed.

Without forgetting Tucker Rogers who manages to ably squeeze his Dobro into the mix. “Only Love” is, indeed, totally awesome; a song that bursts through all of the restrictive stereotypes of its genre to reveal itself as something totally inspiring.

Pale Blue Dot is a collective with a defined sense of purpose – they focus on immersing you in their music, and letting the emotional peaks and valleys do the work of knocking you out!
