Creative composer Donna O. Raphael takes a notably refreshing approach to crafting original music. This album, volume 2 of D’strumentals, is something of an unexpected gem.
SUNDERWORLD is an artist who quickly succeeds in creating compelling, entrancing soundscapes around his audience – fusing gradually intensifying ambiances or grooves with decidedly thoughtful, poetic lyricism, and a softly expressive vocal delivery that captivates for its emotional grit and delicacy combined.
There’s something inherently laid back about this artist’s approach to rap and to music in general – his tone of voice is peaceful, soothing even, and many of his ideas seem uninhibited and free from concern, which furthers the effect.
Hazzy E is an artist crafting her own unique take on pop & hip hop that is soaked in a certain sense of identity & originality. There’s a touch of the familiar in the style & swagger of Bitter – the rhythm, the pace, the passion & confidence.
The song showcases the strength of the artist’s voice & creativity in a number of different ways, under a number of different lights.
