Digital Gringo: “Project Mayhem” cannot be described as anything less than brilliant!

Right of the cuff, two things caught my attention about Modesto, California creative, Digital Gringo. Firstly, his biography reads: “Digital Gringo is a rapper that raps”. And secondly, how many rappers do you know that rhyme perfectly to the funky beat foundation of Earth Wind & Fire’s “Let’s Groove”?

Tau: “Indecisive” (ft. OGI.Ejay) – the perfect balance of pop universality, pointed soul groove and rap urgency

In an era with melodic sing-song rap, electronic productions, and groovy soulful vibes; storytellers get lost. But then there are artists like Tau, who can put storytelling on top of bars, on top of electronic sounds, on top of groovy soulful productions and deliver it in a voice that will blow your mind. Tau is building a bigger following every day by providing quality content. His tracks showcase the sort of technical mastery and new wave vibe that will make him into one of the genre’s exciting up-and-comers. He’s a guy that can float on any sort of instrumental, and tackle a wide array of subjects. Tau is a Louisiana native from Baton Rouge. His latest single “Indecisive” (ft. OGI.Ejay) was released during November 2018. The track deals with the narrator making amends with a woman from a previous relationship, despite his past transgressions.

On “Indecisive” (ft. OGI.Ejay) he takes aim at all of his competition in the new wave Hip-hop and R&B games and fires away. First impressions go a long way in any situation, and give a sense of what a person, place or thing is made of and what can be expected of them in future interactions.

This track quickly shows off Tau’s melodic crooning and finds him adopting a thrillingly flow. It provides him a chance to prove his worth and lay the groundwork for a foundation that is rooted in quality and substance, two traits that are present in most of his other works, especially the “Growth” and “Growth II” EP’s.

“Indecisive” (ft. OGI.Ejay) serves as an introduction to get acquainted with the talent on the mic, as well as the music behind it. Tau flexes his singing and storytelling skills over a thumping beat and a syncopated piano.

In addition to the lively, finger-snapping rhythm, the track packs plenty of poignant lyrical moments, which effectively stamps Tau as one of the more thoughtful, sensitive and cerebral talents to emerge as of late. While Rap, Hip-Hop and R&B, in general, are playgrounds for personal commentary and emotional stories, not everybody has the charm and power of Tau’s delivery.

It’s Tau’s desire to keep evolving that makes “Indecisive” (ft. OGI.Ejay) as good as it is. His voice meshes well with the production, as he trades off verses with delicacy and confidence before the chorus blows up into a melodic emotion that allows the Louisiana native to go back and forth with delicious intensity. OGI.Ejay shows up to add some more light to an already bright room.

With the perfect balance of pop universality, pointed soul groove and rap urgency, the two set about to impress and delight. Easily succeeding in doing both. As the urban music world continues to morph under the influence of a multiplicity of genres, Tau continues to find his way into the crossover mix. Where he goes from here will be an even more fascinating journey for his fans.
