D’Artiste

Often times music producers get the least credit for helping create great music, but in actuality they are the reason most magic happen. Many hear Willow and Jaden Smith sound and attribute them for creating a new wave of frequencies and style. While their uniqueness needs not be overlooked neither should the production work of the young guru Daniel D’artise. The California native has generated much of the two superstar’s tracks by blending beautiful ambient sounds with abstract drum patterns creating a futuristic wave. Taking you thru a psychological mind floss of vibrant sounds, while stimulating balance with his selection of chords and melancholy feels. Below is a beat/mix-tape of his latest production placements in the industry, I highly recommend you take the time and check this entire tape out.

Political Music

In the past month, musicians Beyonce and Kendrick Lamar have used two of pop culture’s biggest stages to showcase their political message.

Beyonce’s Super bowl halftime show included her controversial new song “Formation.” Meanwhile, Lamar took home five Grammy awards and offered a visually and lyrically stunning performance of his own songs at the awards show. Queen Bey held court at the Super Bowl half-time show, urging people to join the cause, and get in formation. Leading an army of Afro-American dancers in black attire through a series of choreographed maneuvers concluded with the pumping of raised fists. Compton rapper Lamar took the stage at the Grammy Awards in a different formation, stepping out shackled and chained a story many young Americans know too well. Offering visual metaphors of police brutality and the complexity of prison with his band caged inside cells. Ending the song with a jailbreak and transition to “Alright,” an anthem about the struggle, showing a resurrection from the chain gain. Both performances where political statements, displaying the power of music, addressing generational problems encouraging listeners to change the psychological cycle. Bringing awareness to former activist groups (black panthers) and paying homage to ancestors who created a counter culture with food co-ops, free clinics, underground newspapers and exemption from the draft. Promoting a self-sufficient lifestyle and unity within the community. To see re cap of both performances click the links below… and as always

Gypsy

 

The talented young Chicago rapper Noname Gypsy has unveiled a new single featuring SPZRKT titled “All I Need.” The song is coming from her upcoming project, Telefone planning to release later this year. Noname Gypsy probably sounds familiar if you’ve listened to any of Chance the Rappers releases from the past few years. The Chicago native keeps it pretty low key, but her unique voice and rhyming ability make her immediately recognizable on the track. SPZRKT contributes with a soulful hook that gels perfectly with the remarkably stealthy beat produced by a trio of Chicago producers Saba, THEM PEOPLE and Phoelix. Noname Gypsy casually murders the track, rapping about her personal qualities and how people try to change her into something else. Listen to “All I need” below and as always…

Van Gogh!

Van-gogh!

We all like artist for different reasons. Some listen for style and delivery, others for punchlines and hooks, but seldom do you run across a talent who has the whole package. Fresco Van Gogh, a native from Brooklyn New York, is spreading his wings in the Atlanta scene with his new project coming out first quarter this year called Brooklyn, GA. Van Gogh established a solid buzz in 2015 but is looking to make a splash in the industry this year. With a heavy 808 sounds accompanied with vigilant lyrics Van Gogh creates a perfect blend of East Coast gritty rap with a Down South “boomtrap” production, making it easy to see why this album will be a recipe for success. Fresco brings substance and content with thought provoking songs like “Stalin Freestyle” where he encourages you to stop staling in life and get out and get it, and “UNDRFTD” a single where he lets it be known he is not looking for any hand-outs  understanding his potential and knowing his future is in his handsChoosing the name Van Gogh automatically raises the bar of expectations and Fresco surely meets those expectations. Using his words to paint a picture for the listener and great production as his canvas when you hear Van Gogh’s music you can’t help to compare his music to a masterpiece.

The Reach

Although California has been in a recent drought there has been no shortage of good music from The Golden State, which is evident on the up-and-coming artist Boogie’s 2015 mixtape The Reach. Growing up in the gang-infested culture that traps so many fellow Compton youth Boogie uses The Reach to give his perspective of the strife and struggles he’s witnessed in his lifetime. This lyrical assassin put his skills on display from the intro, having no features from any other rappers but still managing to keep the listeners engaged on every song. The thing that stands out most about the project is Boogie’s lack of fear allowing the listener into his world, whether he is speaking on his family, his environment, or getting shot and bouncing back better than ever. This thought provoking mixtape can be seen as a sign of inspiration for those who are currently where Boogie has been, showing them that it is possible to make it over your obstacles. Be expecting big things in 2016 from Boogie as he has recently signed a deal with Interscope Records.
