What stands the tallest about this version of Where Is My Mind is Costi’s rap verse, particularly that opening set of bars – it comes so unexpectedly & proceeds to effortlessly pour these fresh ideas & rhymes out to you in a calm yet confident way.
Where to start? This song has all the aspects of something you’d blast in your car for hours. Dense story-telling, intense instrumentation, a catchy hook. When the vocalist is not performing, the music never sounds empty or deserted. A lot of releases don’t have that benefit.
Rhythmically, there was never a moment where I could figure out what was coming next. It was as if he was writing a stream of consciousness. Whatever he wanted to express, was expressed as soon as he felt it.
Thoughtful words summon everyone to rise up from the depths of possessive & negative emotion, bolstering the idea that humans can indeed master their wild lions of passion. One can decide to swim in the dark & blame others for their emotional anguish, or Rise Up.
Exactly the band to make you remember what it is to be human. Every note is flawlessly hit. Every aspect of their sound is perfectly cobbled together to make a beautiful, terrifying, screaming, soaring single built to wake a generation asleep at the wheel.
Muntu Valdo brings a totally vast range of influences to his music, or to put it differently, he offers something distinctly original that rings true to his own experiences & artistry.
Duality is a component of our every day existence. Vineyard Cries displays this inevitability in his hip hop/popesque single entitled, Wolf. During the opening seconds of this dualistic experience, there’s an automatic suspense that blankets you.
King Size Slim’s live performances are in a league of their own entirely. Milk Drunk is a stand out clip from his recent 2Seas Session, and to say his performance captivates is a pretty drastic understatement.
