Sky’s is a simple song in nature, a few key elements help give it a definite sense of character, and that’s all that’s really needed. There’s a calming pulse about the whole thing, a minimalist beat and a few lyrical ideas breathe in and out of the mix – like waves lapping up at the shore.
Astral Planes is beautiful, a late night anthem for hip hop and trip hop fans alike. There’s a smooth pop groove to the whole thing, plus a clean finish yet one that still lets the dreamlike aura of the backdrop wash over you in a hypnotic way.
As the founder of JYM, Jeshua’s intention is to inspire and motivate those with creative tendencies to work hard and aim high with their projects – something we can easily get behind.

Had To Grind draws strength from the simple fact that ‘Struggle has made more winners than privilege ever could’. That intro sets the bar high in itself, and the track that follows absolutely keeps it up there
Koinz does his own thing but holds close to the factors that first inspired an interest in the art-form, and David Blaine speaks volumes for that approach. A quality track that we’ll likely be hearing a fair bit of over the coming weeks and months.
