It’s always commendable when artists put in the consistent effort & attentiveness to complete a full length project like this. There’s so much more to relate to & to get lost within on an album, as opposed to a shorter EP or single.
For a soundscape made up primarily of voices & a uniquely thick, organic big beat, Shadows Fade is a surprisingly atmospheric piece of music & writing that’s an easy joy to listen to.
Sam Xhri6 is an artist whose sound fits beautifully into the modern RnB-pop-fusion world as well as offering a distinct level of character & freshness that really helps this latest single shine brightly.
The underlying concept is one of a sheer love of music, regardless of audience size or recognition, and that in itself is something worth appreciating. The song is set to inspire.
Rather than appearing as a simple performance over a beat, there’s a subtle feeling of these two aspects working in unison, so you get a confident & smooth vibe from it all. Dexxin does what he does & makes certain you hear it.
I have learned to take a “best of both worlds” approach to my music being that I’m both a Nigerian & an American. The traditional African rhythms are present with the modern afro-pop sounds, mixed with soul & other contemporary genres.
Making clear the distinction between that which is good, musically, and that which reaches just a little bit higher – Micah Woods’ single Fast Track is a song that feels like an immediate classic.
Make A Scene strikes with the concept & melody required to make certain it lingers in your mind. The sound is still his, it stays true to his creative desires, but the whole process has been cranked up a few notches & the progression pays off.
Being able to walk down the street & see live music everywhere has taught me a lot about performance. I pick up on things that I’d like to incorporate into my shows, and I’ve really just learned to be conversational on stage as that’s what I enjoy watching most.
An incredible song. The subject matter is not something many people will have directly experienced, but the way it’s been presented manages to find you & really connect.
This single produced by JENIUS showcases the smooth musicality & clever conceptual approach of Finessen under a thoughtful & somewhat alternative light.
