Leading with immediate appeal for blending a decidedly colourful soundscape with a hip hop hook that’s quickly anthem-like in its doubled vocals and melodic embrace – Lil Baba kicks of My Year in a boldly creative way.
Lee Knox pours his heart and soul into this project, and his vocals prove faultless throughout – always emotionally in tune with the subject matter, always full of genuine passion and appreciation.
Not only is Face The Mirror composed to a pristine and engaging quality, but the underlying concept is one of personal depth, reflection and honesty, and these traits united make for something that hits with classic, compelling impact.
Anuhigh’s Sterlin9 kicks in with style and confidence on the late-night anthem that is DarkSide (Gimme The Loot).
The song takes advantage of the entire musical structure of songwriting, utilising each moment to imprint ideas & a certain mood onto those who hear it.
There are moments of grunge-like funk in this song that are as bizarre as they are attractive. The music is new, exciting, and completely free of barriers.
The structure has a mind of it’s own, the songwriter has exercised their right to create freely & independently; the result is something quite mesmerizing.
Perhaps the biggest sound of the project, in terms of the instrumental involvement; the complex network of sounds and melodies.
There’s an anthemic & almost tribal sound to the vocals, which at times makes it feel like you’re witnessing some cultural initiation from a far away land.
The alternative sound has been captured very skillfully; at first making you notice it, and later making you glad that you did.
