Album Review – Decade In The Shadows

Ohpenmiind kicks 2021 off with his emotionally charged EP “Decade In The Shadows”. The project starts with “Rollero Rooftop”, a visceral recounting of hustling days passed. Ohpenmiind’s persistent flow and gritty voice lend some legitimacy to his blunt lyricism. The production is smooth and jazzy, which really compliment’s Ohpenmiind’s vocal stylings. “Olive Grove” slides in […]

Single Review: MOBILESUIT – “Stage Five Clinger”

MOBILESUIT (amazing artist name) drops a crazy single on SoundCloud “Stage Five Clinger. MOBILESUIT touches on relatable relationship topics. Sounds like someone got caught in a toxic love triangle one too many times. The final line of the song is a classic “I made reservations for us!” I applaud MOBILESUIT for being open and vulnerable, […]

EP Review: Spookikage – “AINZ OOAL SPOOK”

Spookikage’s 2020 EP release “AINZ OOAL SPOOK” had me at the Overlord anime art on the cover, with “KKK” crossed out. Immediately, this project fell into the “this music better live up to the cover art” category. Spookikage exceeds expectations with a strong 5 track effort. My personal favorite “GUDT MORNING” serves as the intro, […]

Single Review: Intro II – “Ruthless”

Intro II stomps his way into 2020 via all streaming platforms with his new banger “Ruthless”. The hypnotic production makes a perfect bed for Intro II’s ice cold, charismatic, lazy flow. At only 1:43, the “Ruthless” beat is so hard that you have to run this back a few times just to absorb the vibes. […]

“Nirvana” Single Review

Pariah Pete(Like Mariah with a P) comes with the dope summer vibes on his syrupy banger “Nirvana”. Staggered samples and stuttered drums build a unique sound bed for Pete to zone out over. The track is crisp vocally, and contrasts well with the production. The subject matter traverses relatable topics of today’s youth. The sing […]

“Afterdark” EP Review

Danny Kobayashi’s 2020 EP “Afterdark” opens with “Alone”, a sweeping, moody and melodic sip of sad boy vibes. The production value is high, the attention to detail is apparent in every song. At 5 songs running 15 min 16 sec, this EP goes with quality over quantity. Each song is a deep dive sonically and […]
