Midxnite Ft. Hi Rez – The Point!: A smooth patch on a music marble

https://youtu.be/_zJ5Zhg0Dak

A fast-paced hip-hop song flow moulded with a rather mid-tempo beat is what splashes first in your ear when you listen to the intro of this song.

Followed up pretty fast in the second line was a long stretchy lyrical stealth of music flow that’s skilfully interwreathed from pitch to pitch on the same tempo within the actual baseline of the already heightened sound.

The featured artist (Hi Rez) didn’t forget to live up to expectation, with the whole morale high and tensed, he brought his A-game on this song by giving it his all towards his part of the song.

The perfect ingredient that’s needed were all in the right quantity here. For some reasons, the best part of the song was best saved for the last. Finishing the song with special lyrical rigmarole that’s actually golden is all that’s spectacular about this song.

Both rappers further marked up their own respective territories in this song by consciously laying bare all the aesthetic musical features that have distinguished them from the everyday uneventful acts. None of the rappers slacked in making know to their audience the reason why they’ve been quite outstanding over the year.

The song is actually very short, just a two minutes rap song but the punch line was uptight and 100% bespoke. This is an interesting rap/trap music that’s worth your time.

Crow Quilled Confessions Release Fascinating Track ‘A Human Being on the Planet Earth’

I recently attended a De La Sol set at a festival in Queens. I enjoyed an interlude in which a voice from the trio said that sometimes you just need to let the beat play. It’s always nice to hear how artists feel about the things they make and how they make them. It’s also nice to see how artists whose styles vary greatly can agree on certain sentiments. Such is the case with Crow Quilled Confessions. Their track A Human Being on the Planet Earth perfectly demonstrates a group who know how to let the beat play when it needs to.

For the first half of the song, there are several elements introduced that seem to orbit around the catchy, strongly-mixed beat. You might miss some details along the way if you aren’t careful, but one thing is for certain, you will feel that beat. It doesn’t seem like a drum part that needs much elaboration. It may not have much to say. This doesn’t stop Crow Quilled Confessions from letting it lead the charge into the second half, which quickly but organically reinvents its status quo with fuzzy guitars and a bass that triumphantly makes its presence known.

From here, the track becomes a ride. Suddenly the beat has taken a backseat for the exploration of all the other themes that had previously been allowing it to lead. For such a dramatic change in priority to occur while holding onto the mood and tone of the song is a major challenge. Even as the song fades out in its last 30 seconds, you can’t help but feel the beat play on in your mind. This is a song that leaves the speakers and really does affect your mind for moments at a time. It’s not overly complicated, but it’s certainly a fascinating track.
