Benny B – ‘Move Fast’

This track features more of an electronic, indie and dance vibe and I really like it. Again, referring to the Billy – Not Over You EP, there are elements in there that are similar but not totally the same. I enjoyed that over time the track builds and adds more elements to it. This doesn’tContinue reading “Benny B – ‘Move Fast’”

K’O Qua – ‘Niagara’

This track has a lot of what most rappers use nowadays. The same type of beats with the higher more intricate notes repeated throughout the track. The rapping itself isn’t bad though, but I really wasn’t a fan of the lyrics I’ll be honest. It kind of raps and lists all the reasons I don’tContinue reading “K’O Qua – ‘Niagara’”

Strong Maurice – ‘LETUDOWN [Jxckal REMIX]’

The track sounds with what sounds like wind blowing before chilled keyboards and drum beats start to match the smooth autotuned vocals. The track begins to build but just as it seems like it will reach an explosion it breaks down into what it was like at the beginning with the drum beats a littleContinue reading “Strong Maurice – ‘LETUDOWN [Jxckal REMIX]’”

Faceless Sage – ‘Long Nights Short Days (Produced by Young Taylor)’

The song starts off slowly before quicker beats are introduced at the same time as the rapping. This track is short at 2:22 and it’s kind of a hit and miss in areas of the song. Towards the middle is where the track gets better due to the bars getting much quicker, but the backingContinue reading “Faceless Sage – ‘Long Nights Short Days (Produced by Young Taylor)’”

Michael X – ‘Anthrax’

This one took me by surprise in the beginning. It had some mellow smooth jazz and I don’t ever get sent anything like that – much to my disappointment. However, just as soon as I began to enjoy the jazz it disappeared and changed, met by uncomfortable and somewhat disturbing sounds that make your hairContinue reading “Michael X – ‘Anthrax’”

Saltysoul – ‘Dank N Drizzle’

The song starts with water running and a slow bluesy keyboard and drum beat begins to play. The same tune and chord progression rings through until halfway through the song where the drum starts, and the notes begin to change. This, however, is short lived and it soon goes back to the same chords asContinue reading “Saltysoul – ‘Dank N Drizzle’”

Brandon Clarke & Tawobi – ‘No Vapes’

The track starts with two guys having a conversation in a car – from what I can gather they’re looking for the track that begins to play. It then goes into what sounds like an old 60s/70s advertisement about alcohol before a low monotonous “yeah” (I think) begins to sing in the background before goingContinue reading “Brandon Clarke & Tawobi – ‘No Vapes’”

Low – ‘Double Negative’

Most people know ‘Low’ as the American indie rock group that formed Minnesota in 1993, who were famously known for their slow tempo’s and minimalist arrangements. Early descriptions of their work was often categorized as a sub-genre of rock called ‘slow-core’, which the band did not take to kindly to at the time. Now, LowContinue reading “Low – ‘Double Negative’”
