Hawaiian Hip Hop

Kalalea is set to take over the Hawaiian hip-hop and island RnB scene with his latest single, Taurus

Very few head-over-the-heels-of-romantic-hedonism soundtracks hit as hard as the latest single, Taurus, from the Hawaiian Native, Kalalea, who is making all the right moves to take over the Hawaiian hip-hop and island RnB scene.

His fiery brand of soul in the future-ready production that transcends trends will leave knees weak and speakers hot once the steamy single kicks into full flow with the trap beats lighting a fire under his passion-slicked vocal lines, which celebrate the sensual and provocative power of Tauruses.

When he’s not orchestrating summer playlist staples, he’s integrated into the film and design industry; just to affirm that his talents are as multifaceted as they are virtuosic.

Taurus hit the airwaves on May 20; get into the groove of it on YouTube.

Taurean Meacham has released their chillingly soulful Hip Hop single ‘Seth’ feat. Aka J. Gatsby

Every now and again, I discover an artist who affirms that I’m not as aurally jaded as I often proclaim to be, the goosebumps left by Taurean Meacham’s single ‘Seth’ featuring Aka J. Gatsby was one of those rare aural gems which reminded me of my capacity to feel at music’s command.

Seth is just one of the singles which can be found on The Hawaiian-based RnB HipHop artist’s 2020 album ‘BLAKK RADIKAL’. Soul radiates through the Old School-inspired production through the sensually dreamy instrumentals and, of course, through Taurean Meacham’s conscious lyricism. Even if I listened to Seth 1,000 times, I have no doubt I would be able to pick new wisdom out of the lyrics. It’s pure urban poetry and it would be criminal for Taurean Meacham’s powerful introspection to be overlooked.

Labelling the track as mesmeric wouldn’t be an over-exaggeration.
