Downtown Mystic – ‘3-Way Heartbreak’ – more than just a nostalgic listening experience!

One of the things Downtown Mystic notoriously excel at is masking emotional lyrics with upbeat, driving-with-the-windows-rolled-down kind of melodies. Their double-side single, ‘3-Way Heartbreak’, which also includes the track ‘Same Old Lover’, recorded in 1983, has all that and more. While for most other contemporary bands, it’s hard to recapture the real magic of rock n’ roll, for Robert Allen and his crew, this comes easy. They grew up during rock’s golden era, hence Downtown Mystic’s music lives up to the genre’s legacy, rather than just riding on its coattails. The ‘3-Way Heartbreak’ single, on the Sha-La Music, Inc. catalog,

We checked out his prime tracks in anticipation of the EP, and if the goal of this release is to make a breakout statement that Jona Da King is getting seriously started, he’s succeeded, delivering some of the smoothest, most mellifluous urban sounds we’ve heard in music

Berani – “Cut And Taste” strikes an incredible balance of disparate elements

Berani is an electronic beat maker with a diverse sound spectrum and a tendency to produce bouncing rhythms or spacious and relaxing aural experiences. In a short time span, this emerging artist out of Byron Bay in Australia, has discerning music fans and casual listeners paying attention. The sound design throughout his latest single “Cut And Taste” is what we’ve come to expect from this creative top tier producer: popping percussion, basslines that melt like butter and a healthy dose of twisted horns to make everything bump in a soul-like fashion. Sprinkled around the track are sonic effects that keep

EsZ – “Liquor & Emotions” – introspective and emotional

Hip-hop has been cranking out bangers and high energy anthems for decades, but the average genre historian is well aware that dark or emotional thoughts on a chill backdrop is not a foreign concept for the game. After all, profound moodiness feels rather natural for a culture that grew out of urban plight and the trauma of purposely disenfranchised people. It makes sense that at least some mellow tunes in the genre, reflect deep-thinking speculation, in what artist EsZ, describes as thoughts on “life, growth and fake friends” in his track “Liquor & Emotions”. The song is a drunk text

Hugó

It’s not easy to find quality hip hop these days that has wide appeal, but by some miracle, Hugó has been able to breach that barrier. He has been on his grind, and it looks like it’s about to pay off with his debut UNKrowned K.I.N.G. Hugó strives for lyrical dominance in the game. Then he backs that up with solid, organic and soulful sounding beats dipped into jazzy flavors. The man has something to say, and he’s trying to say it in the best possible way.

Hugó is not afraid to expose himself and tell his story as it really is. Much of his appeal comes from his songs being so down to earth and easy to relate to. Sometimes he gets down, dirty and real explicit too, like on “Wet (Prod.Finale SNG)”. Other tracks of note include “Stamped Certified Crack (Prod.Emani)”, “2K14 Hippy Shit (Prod.Dre-1 Beats)”, “Self Analysis (Prod.Real Talk Inc)”, “Gonna Talk (Prod.KaCe The Producer)”, “Blowin O’z” and “Hugo Vibes”.

Hugó paints a vivid mural on the walls of your mind through each and every song. Although there is an abundance of deep material to enjoy, Hugó isn’t serious all the time. He shows love to the ladies, and has no trouble expressing it, though he always ends up getting lost in the sexual aspect of it.

Hugó manages to find himself a nice balance between storytelling, reflecting on serious topics, showing off for the ladies, and braggadocio rapping to make his debut work well. Overall, UNKrowned K.I.N.G is a solid product that comes from working his grind. Hugó is very easy to understand and easy to relate to. I’ll enjoy watching his progress to the top.
