Ed Riley releases their latest experimental Hip Hop single “Self Love”

“Self Love” is the latest single from up and coming Alt Hip Hop artist Ed Riley who perceptibly has no intention of assimilating former artist’s work in his own. Instead of creating a track with the usual archetypal structures, Self Love is a raw hit of undiluted passion with an experimental flow.

Even with the short duration of Self Love, you’d have to have a soul of stone not to feel anything as you listen to the mesmeric tempo of the track which allows samples of nostalgically vintage Soul to bring the layers of harmony. You’ll also come to appreciate the bass-heavy EDM Hip Hop beats which transform Self Love into a reverberant immersive single.

JIM E. WATTS – MUSICAL THERAPY: When music is the cure

Musical Therapy is the latest project by Jim E. Watts (previously J-Dub), a 12-track album gone live on 21st June 2019.

Coming from the overloaded world of hip hop, with influences echoing in Drake, Eminem and possibly a pinch of Prince, he manages to stand out from the usual loop and beat structure, replacing the whole with mellow melodies and stories.

“My mind”, “Miss me now” and “Situationship”, are a clear sign of lyrics digging deeper. “It’s hard to stay focused when you live a life without a purpose”, he claims in ‘Blessings’. As a result, you can expect to hear about heartbreaks, relationship breakdowns and social turmoil, he seems to want to treat with music. And the therapy lays in the gentle and smooth (almost chill-out) sounds, mixing here and there some acoustic guitar with hip hop beats.

Maybe not all negatives in life are meant to become a personal disease and end up badly, maybe there’s still hope for redemption. And for Jim E. Watts, music is most definitely the cure.
