Both tracks are anthem-like by nature, both completely unique from one-another, yet still underlying that lyrical prowess and ever-evolving flow that runs throughout his work.
Beautifully fusing a well-known, riff-led ambiance with a smooth yet raspy, light vocal delivery, walking the line between indie-pop and hip hop, Shy Troy is quick to leave an impression with this latest release.
Chad Rico showcases both a love for hip hop – wordplay, rhyme, rhythm – and music as a more general art form and means of expression.
Fusing a thoughtful and passionate hip hop core with a brilliantly unexpected soul-rock structure and sample, the track is nothing like you’d predict it to be, yet it’s everything you could hope for in an original, alternative and addictive song.
The beat is superb, fusing a little of that dance-hall bounce with a more melancholic aura that helps highlight the underlying truth and emotion of the song.
As a producer, speakea𝟝y describes his music as ‘angsty millennial type beats’. Perhaps this is the perfect way to define his approach, but there’s far more to the sound and experience of this project than a simple four-word phrase can express. Depth and substance play a huge part, lyrically and in terms of the emotion and mood that each soundscape presents you with.
The song’s inherently loving nature is outright the main takeaway from the experience. Lines like I’ll have your back forever stand out well amidst this notably colourful and calming ambiance.
Though it sounds like easy listening from the outside – calming folk vibes, plenty of optimism and beauty – there’s an element of depth to much of the writing that adds a subtle layer of intensity. A brilliantly unique artist and a really well captured new playlist. Absolutely worth discovering.
A beautiful song, lyrically refreshing, structurally simple yet subtly creative in the same instance – long-form bars intertwine with shorter fragments of ideas. Delicacy meets with grit – images of peace are contrasted by those of violence; again subtly, just prominent enough to leave a mark.
Kicking off with the quickly anthem-like and memorably simple Lebron Solider XI, this two-track collaborative release from Mo Turk introduces an artist with a clear love for music and a natural sense of rhythm and character when delivering.
“I have had rappers brag about driving a Ferrari, yet, they text me asking me for $10 because they can’t afford to put gas in their 1984 Honda accord. I will never make fun of someone who is struggling, but I will call out those who are fake.”
loaded is not only a great track – produced to the highest quality, leading with a smooth and easily memorable hook, anthem-like on the whole – it’s also a bold and striking introduction to every artist featured within.
