00s Hip Hop

MidLskooL shares his posthumous requests in his hip hop anthem, ‘AfterParty’, featuring Miss Toto.

With reminiscence to the likes of Fatman Scoop, Snoop Dog, Timbaland and Missy Elliot, MidLskooL’s latest single, AfterParty, offers all of the infectious energy that you’d expect to find in a high-vibe hip hop anthem.

With MidLskooL bringing 00s hip hop vibes with his dominant rap bars and featuring artist Miss Toto bringing the soul with her RnB hip hop vocals, AfterParty is as dynamic as it is galvanising. It might feel strange at first to hear MidLskooL run through his funeral preferences, but if you look between the lines, you will find that AfterParty is a subversively convincing way of telling you that the concept of death doesn’t have to be synonymous with grief. As sombre as it may be, death provides an opportunity for celebration, and we’re notorious for not knowing what we have until it is gone.

AfterParty is available to stream and purchase via apple music.

Canadian trailblazer SVLM offers a high-vibe Hip Hop playlist staple with ‘Six Speed’

SVLM has already taken the Canadian Hip Hop scene by storm, after the release of their latest track, Six Speed, he’s about to tempestuously dominate international airwaves.

The high-vibe grooves paired with their charismatically-energetic personality made an earworm out of Six Speed, which is anything but mechanical despite the romantically meta automotive focus of the track.

Their ability to infuse their endearing personality in the music video made it impossible not to warm to SVLM. Their commercial potential is undeniable. Don’t just watch this space, get behind one of the most eccentrically magnetic artists dropping tracks in 2020.

You can check out the cinematic official music video which dropped on October 30th for yourselves by heading over to YouTube.

DYYNVMIC delivers meta mindfulness with their standout single ‘Three Wives’ featuring Girls Like Girls

While some Hip Hop artists are out there writing ‘love’ songs for their side pieces, Californian artist DYYNVMIC is adding perspective-shifting nuance to the soundwaves with his single, ‘Three Wives”, which shines a mindful light on the dark side of addiction.

Three Wives is just one of the singles which you’ll find on DYYNVMIC’s distinctively alluring 2020 EP, ‘Road Work’, which is heavily influenced by the 00’s era of Hip Hop. It serves as the perfect introduction to their unique perspective and tonally-indulgent approach to production. That’s all before mentioning the authenticity in DYYNVMIC’s smooth, steady and sobering Rap bars.

Three Wives is raw, tender and transfixing right from the intro through the addition of Girls Like Girls’ vocals which ooze sincerity and vulnerability. A simple harmonic whisper of “How did we get this far” before running through a series of conflicted emotions is all it takes for your mood to fall perfectly in line.

Each ‘wife’ serves to explain a different facet of addiction, something which the artist has witnessed plenty of. With the meta-narrative style, he offers powerful emotion while never letting the stigma of addiction lace the soundscape.

Three Wives transcends typical lyrical narratives while achieving an atmospherically cinematic vibe. Any fans of Drake, Kendrick Lamar and Schoolboy Q’s sound and Eminem’s lyrical approach are definitely going to want to delve in.

You can check out Three Wives by heading over to Spotify where you can also check out their Road Work EP in full.
