Yury’s track, Books, is a multifaceted demeanor of ghost like vocals that submerges you into a post apocalyptic world. The style is definitely unique and it seems like most of the focus are on the adlibs; to pop up in different places around you phasing in and out. He has done all the production himself and it really is a gem to be able to do everything yourself. As The process is stressful, time consuming and tiring. Nonetheless, Yury has done a interesting job on his music and I’m sure we will hear from him mainstream.
Ryan Caraveo song, Run, is a post-apocalyptic anthem about a variety of emotions that people either hide or run from. The melodies in the background pull you into the world of emotion and expression; which is very similar to how Kid Cudi does with his music. I could tell Ryan been through something personal and he’s mellowing his experiences by not running away, but running to faces the challenges head on.
$OUL, Shelly and Mat’n Island song, Bitch!, almost instantly throws me into a virtual world of a video game series. From the fast colors, aggression, night scene to the touches of Timberland and Nelly Furtado. I love the energy the song started and ended with. You get to hear both sides of the scene and you can go to which side you resonate with. Live your truth.
Dread Pitt & Yung Fusion’s track, Electric Baby, is a fusion of electronic trap that has the saucy of islands sounds. The sound of the drums and the rhythmical flow of Dread Pitt really brought the track to the forefront. You can really close your eyes and feels the environment around you. You can feel the bodies grinding, the warm breeze from the ocean, the fruity pineapple drinks and the smell of remedy (weed) in the air. I believe if you like island reggae music, but also trap and hip hop, you’ll love this genre blending track.
Jimi Lucid’s song, Lilth, is a mesmerizing stream of psychedelic harmonies that brings you into another world outside of reality. One hit and you’re floating into an abyss of sorrow, pain, pleasure and understanding. The sound reminds me of a colorful enchanted forest filled with emotions and pleasure. All of that “feeling” makes Lilth.
Androu’s song, Great, is a combination of humorous storytelling about someone’s well-being; in a modernize flow that appeals overall. At first, you are sunk into a story about not being well with how thing are. You want to change it but you just don’t feel like it. Maybe this song is a motivation to keep going even when you don’t feel…well..not so great.
Shon-D track, Playing With Me, is an smokey rockin’ song that features one’s feelings and emotions. The atmosphere tone is like an oasis. Everything with this person just uplifts the mood; things appear more satisfactory. When you are really feeling someone, there’s no other feeling like it. We know when the sparks are high; we just want the cat and mouse games to go and just say you want it.
Falling Up takes you on a journey to discover new adventures with that special someone you love. It reminds me of young love. Listening to this song takes you on a higher level of love where you feel anything is possible where you can let go, be free, and be yourself and judgement doesn’t exist only true love. I like how Townsend use the words “Falling up” because it’s typical to fall in love, but “falling up” is a different kind of love it’s a love filled with excitement, happiness, and infinite possibilities.
When I listen to “Almost Summer ”, it reminds me of a summer day filled with family and friends. It is a song you can sit back and chill, and just feel the positive energy and vibrations in the air. This song makes you want to toast to the good life. What attracted me to this song is the dope beat! It feels older than what it seems; it gives you a 90’s type vibe with a fresh modern sound. Overall this song has a great mood if you’re looking for something to vibe out to over the summer.
