7evene11 releases Aquafina: Insane energy and a real feel good hit

Rap, Pop and Hip-Hop shines through in 7evene11 track ‘Aquafina’ it’s definitely one that has this insane amount of energy and is such a feel good piece of music.

Sounding similar to those like Post Malone, having that similar Laconic approach when it comes to lyrics. That very gruff sounding vocal whilst having that high-pitched electronic like style vocal coming in and of course not to mention the incredibly infectious melody that flows along in the background.

The specific genres that 7evene11 music classes do tend to use the popular technique of autotune, pitch-correcting the voice giving it a more robotic precision.

7evene11 has created something that you must add to your playlist, it’s up-beat, it’s creative and is a hit for sure.

Kofi Jamar x Ice Prince x Khaligraph Jones releases latest single In The City

A Hip-Hop. Afrobeats and Rap hit ‘In The City’ from Kofi Jamar, Ice Prince and Khaligraph Jones, a combination of vocal ranges, one killer beat and pure energy.

Three artists in a Rap song, each with different styles of vocals and offering a variety of tones, it’s safe to say that even though it feels like there’s a lot going on, that’s what makes this such a hit. The vocal tones that each artist offers are so diverse, it’s interesting to listen too when you can hear the change in pace, in pitch and the way in which it flows with the beat and each voice stands out.

The way in which it goes from fairly slow pace to really amping up the volume and getting faster and faster the Raps begin to get a lot quicker, giving you that real feel good energy as you listen.

In The City has such a rapturous rhythm, it really does show why Rap and Hip-Hop are the highest listened to styles of music.

Ato-Mik drop new single Faithfully ft Malikai Motion: Rap and Hip-hop intertwine

Born and raised in North Vancouver, two brothers Atom and Mikey Mic joined together to create Ato-Mik, recently dropping their single ‘’Faithfully’’.

A lot of aspects of this track stand out, but the main one is without a doubt the way in which both of them sound, they both have such distinct vocals, and they’re not even in the same pitch or pace which is really interesting to listen too.

However, even though the two vocals are pretty diverse they still go side by side and intertwine perfectly. Atom has a fairly soft yet deep vocal range, when he raps it’s not too quick or slow it’s the right amount of pitch and pace. Mikey has a more high-pitched vocal, but his rap is a lot faster.

The energy you hear through this track from both of them is infectious, there’s this constant up-beat rhythm. Faithfully shows how Rap can be done in a more modernised way, Ato-Mik are bringing their revised Rap sound into 2020 and it’s going to be exciting to see what they do next after listening to this.

Rapper 1K Kee releases single Lose Control (Prod.Tonycoco)

‘’Lose Control (Prod.Tonycoco)’’ is the new single by Rapper 1K Kee it’s a mixture of Rap, RnB and Hip-Hop. Intertwining three different styles into a short yet very catchy track.

Some listeners prefer songs to be longer, some prefer it to be shorter, this one is the right length and it’s enough time to give the audience a real taster of just what 1K Kee has to offer. He’s someone that knows how to create a contagious beat, even if the lyrics are repetitive, the melody that goes alongside it completely tops it all off.

At the start it’s very much like a fast pace piano tune, then the drum beats come in, as the RnB elements take the lead, by adding in the effect of repeating what they say in a high-pitched animated tone, to give it that more electronic, remix feel.

Lose Control is one that shows the importance of sound and how well a certain melody can create something that will definitely be stuck in your head.

Wazi Maret releases album Beats in the Basement: Rap and Electronica combine

Wazi Maret has recently dropped his new nine-track anthology ‘’Beats in the Basement’’. A variety of different sounds combine, from electronica, RnB, Rap and Hip-Hop. Wazi knows how to completely nail a killer beat and this collection proves that.

Each song is so distinct in their own way, some stand out more than others, but there is always a creative and up-beat melody in each one, as for the vocals they’re more of a slow pace Rap rather than being in your face and too quick, the way the beat collides alongside the vocals is excellent and the amount of talent that goes into being able to create the rhythms that Wazi portrays in this album, is impressive and shows a load of potential.

Wazi has created an anthology that shows just how well he can mix a tune together and the lyrical approach is honest and he’s not afraid to get to the point and talk about how he feels, this one is a must if your into really hard-hitting Rap lyrics followed by energetic beats and electronic sound effects.

Gbeezy DotTruuf drops single Already: A whole load of styles combined into one

Rap, Hip-Hop and RnB artist Gbeezy DotTruuf has released his single ‘’Already’’. He sure knows how to drop a killer beat.

Most of the time with Rap music, the vocals and sometimes the pace of the voice stays pretty flat. Gbeezy gives this adenoidal sound to his voice, in parts it sounds like it’s more of a gravelly tone in places and then in other parts he sounds raucous.

There is such a huge range of different vocal ranges and styles of voice, which is something that Already offers, it shows how much Gbeezy as an artist can change up his sound but the track still sound insane.

The instrumental melodies are fairly generic, it has a beat that intertwines really well with the song, but the way in which the vocal approach is delivered is what makes this track a hit for sure.

Ammon – Double Edged (Prod.pure): Rap and Hip-Hop taken to a whole other level

Rap and Hip-Hop artist Ammon has dropped a killer single ‘‘Double Edged’’ and it’s safe to say that it’s rap at it’s finest for sure.

Nowadays Rap like Pop can be such a generic genre, the way in which it sounds is just so similar, it’s a matter of what can the newer and more up and coming artists offer that would make them shine in the music industry especially in something like Rap, well it’s safe to say Ammon does not have to worry about that after listening to his track Double Edged.

Something that makes this track sound out is it doesn’t need much for it to be a hit, the vocal approach is fairly flat and has this dark and sad kind of feel to it like the voice is zoning out in a distorted way. It’s done in a way that makes Ammon so mesmerising to listen too, it’s not just your same old Rap track, it has this whole new energy one that needs to be recognised.

This single is pretty incredible and we are so excited to see what Ammon has planned for the rest of the year definitely check this one out, you won’t regret it!

Theo Mawali releases ‘We Walk’: From Reggae to Rap

Reggae, Hip-Hop, DanceHall and Rap all intertwine together to create Theo Mawalis new single ‘We Walk’.

Quite a mixture of genres for artist Theo but he manages to combine them all in an amazing way. Your taken on this journey through different ranges and vocal tones.

At the start the Reggae elements shine through, the rhythm is mellow and soft, but then as you pass the middle the sound completely turns and is solidly just Rap, it keeps swerving in and out of them two sounds, but even though they do sound distinctive genres it still works perfectly.

Theo Mawali is one to check out if you’re into the combination of Reggae and Rap or perhaps it’s something that you’ve never embarked on before, it’s definitely worth delving into for sure.

OG (Prod.treetime) single by rapper Kozie

‘OG (Prod.treetime)by Kozie is one to listen to if you’re into Rap, RnB and Hip-Hop, it’s honest to say the least, but he shares his opinion and serves it well.

From start to finish the tempo stays similar, with most Rap especially now it always has its own unique and up-beat rhythm that brings the whole song to another level. This one is very much like that, the drum beats are powerful and loud each beat has this echo that intertwines back into the flow of the Rap.

Even though it is a short track, it all goes well together. Sometimes with genres like Rap beats can become overpowering and can completely cut off the vocals, or in some cases the instrumental lacks creativity and the Rap is perfect. With this the beat and vocals never sway too far from each other, they both stand out in their own ways and it’s impressive.

Kozie nails the Hip-Hop, Rap and RnB style he was shooting for, the up and coming artist knows how to Rap, how to create lyrics that are strong and a rhythm to go with it that you just have to love.

BlueJays single Young Wild & Reckless

BlueJays single ‘Young Wild & Reckless’ is one to add to your playlist if you’re into the modern sound of Rap and RnB it also comes with a music video.

Only being in the industry for a few years, he has released music prior to this track and he never fails to make something that flows so effortlessly, when it comes to talking about the beat and the vocals nothing sounds out of place, it all goes side by side perfectly and the tempo is the same pace and pitch of the vocals which is what makes it run so smoothly.

BlueJay is not afraid to say what he wants and that really stands out throughout this track, he likes to express how he feels in his own Rap style whilst combining RnB tempos. It has this fun personality about it and the music video shows just what he’s all about.
