Having self-awarded this as ‘arguably the 4th best Hip-Hop Funk Fusion Rap Song About Food Of All Time’, Max Wassen walked into this with a comedic intention, but honestly – the track has such a good groove & is brilliantly well-crafted, you tend to feel the embrace of the music & the performance above anything else.
Tex Mex Shaman’s Roll Over Matryoshka offers music fans a plus-six-minute audio journey through what feels partly like a live jam session, and partly like a beautifully chaotic, ever-changing dream.
“I dropped a tab of Acid and had just received the Masters for Avenue B, so that was playing in the background. I started getting the visuals from the music.”
Kid Loose manages to balance a clear understanding of music with a sheer passion for melody and originality. World music meets with the entrancing rhythms of house to produce something completely immersive and beautifully uplifting.
Complete with a scheduled mini-series of accompanying music videos, ‘Avenue B’ offers a stunning collection of instrumentally masterful songs and passionate outpourings – each of which is as melodically addictive as it is cinematic and vibrant.
Stephen Dusenberry takes listeners through a multilayered, retro-funk arena of optimism on this release Fools Gold. The track offers the fullness of a live jazz and funk band, along with a notably electronic aura that fuses with that raw musicality in an energizing way.
What’s That is an easily recognisable yet simultaneously humble new track. It introduces Heads or Heads – AKA, Alex Harbolt – as an artist with an unconcerned approach to artistry. Being that his primary art form of choice is film making, it will be interesting to hear where else the music world takes him as the months and years roll by.
“Never give up on your dreams. I’m handicapped, confined to a wheelchair and a breathing ventilator, but by the grace of Christ I’m fulfilling my dream of being a dance music producer.”
In the same manner in which certain legendary producers have often paved their own way within the industry – going left when everybody else went right – ChudaBeat seems genuinely unconcerned with what the majority are doing right now. Instead, he creates from a clear love for music, and that connection and brightness shines gorgeously.
These are artistic presentations, so the rhythm and the set-up is just as important as the lyrics in expressing the underlying sentiments, and that’s something thinkbendy naturally holds close to.
The backdrop is mildly funk-driven, spacious and organic so as to give off a live atmosphere – tempting you to seek out a gig. On top of this, carefully intertwined vocals pour through with the nostalgic prowess of a soul hit from a simpler decade.
These tracks create rhythmic soundscapes loaded with elements of both tribal and electronic instrumentation alike – as well as fragments of voices that help guide you through and build a notably cinematic experience.
