Powerfully hypnotic visuals accompany a dark and industrial soundscape for this striking release from LA artist MIKEHAZE.
Bridging the gap between engrossing musicality and unwavering lyricism, this is a single that ticks a whole lot of boxes on both sides of the spectrum.
Contrary to the title of this EP, the music that pours through from the moment you click play is so smooth and loaded with good vibes, that it contrasts powerfully with the depth and emotional honesty that Dan Psycho injects into his bars.
Set up to build intensity and musicality from the offset, a simple horn intro leads into a contemporary hip hop beat and a series of accompanying visuals that showcase a thoughtful, intentional story-line.

Strong A.R.M “The way I see it, I had my Hip Hop heroes growing up, and now my kids have their Hip Hop heroes growing up.”
“The way I see it, I had my Hip Hop heroes growing up, and now my kids have their Hip Hop heroes growing up!!!! Growing up people said that Hip Hop would not last. So as Hip Hop evolves into what it is nowadays, who am I to say that it sucks!!!!!”
By the time the track comes to an end, that beat has energized the room, and that hook has softly but surely woven its way into your consciousness.
The finish on this track is a little dreamy, somewhat warped and distant, which actually fits well with the slurred vocal sound and many of the more audible lyrics.
Leading with a retro electronic warmth that tips its hat to trip hop and the late Mac Miller alike, R. Choppa’s Animal Behavior is a project with a creative set of soundscapes and a quickly recognisable, identity-loaded string of vocal performances.
This is the kind of moment and indeed song that music fans can turn to and escape within, questioning things themselves, whilst being calmed by the overall good energy and multi-coloured ambiance of the single.
Crisp, clean and contemporary sound design meets with quickly addictive songwriting on this latest easy hit from artist and songwriter FREMO.
Made up of every contemporary rap intricacy yet blended with a nineties-style melodic hit of a hook, Von Ba$$ drives with a simple love for the good times and good vibes on this latest single.
