BeckMilli, ‘Gotham’


No Comments

BeckMilli lays out her goals in her new release, ‘Gotham’. Furthermore, the London aspirant speaks for the generation who wants to push out and break the mould.

‘Gotham’ kicks off with a memorable intro with a piano melody that sounds frightening but exciting. The piano lead plays through for the majority of the piece. For me, I would enjoy for a little more variance because it can become somewhat repetitive, mostly if you are not concentrating on the story in which BeckMilli presents.

Nevertheless, BeckMilli raps with conviction, and she leaves no room for any dissonance with her rap bars matching the instrumental impeccably. Also, her tone is refreshingly unorthodox with her proving unique from the very start. However, I would enjoy more harmonies along the way. Yes, we hear a male vocalist popping up from time to time to lend a helping hand to make a few words even more powerful. But, for me, it is not enough. I prefer a few changes in the back end of the vocal mix, giving it more flavour and allowing the excitement to keep flowing.

Overall, ‘Gotham’ is a poetic gem. I relish how it arrives just that little bit different, and although BeckMili has taken influence fro the greats including Cardi B and Giggs, she still brings something fresh to the table. Her ability to fuse several genres into once is also impressive with her drill influences percolating from the get-go.

U Lie I Cry Austin Fillmore


No Comments

Heading over to my hometown of Chicago we have Austin Fillmore with his newest release ‘U Lie I Cry”, a song about heartbreak. Austin has set out to confront the fear of emotional pain and has even created the movement #ThinkgLessFeelMore which encourages his fans to feel everything they need to feel by submitting to their emotions. In his new song he does just that, he submits to his heartbreak and takes us on a journey to how he got there.

Austin has been making a name for himself on Chicago’s local scene and you may have already seen him on A Taste of, Lyrical Lemonade, Elevator, and Chicago’s Kiss FM. He has also recently graced some of the Midwest’s biggest stages, including the North Coast Music Festival and countless other local staples! His performance on Chicago’s #1 Morning Show “The Jam” has marked Austin as a star on the rise in Chicago. Austin has teamed up with Remy Prosper, a producer/composer and songwriter from my current location Miami, Fl. So let’s get right to it and see what this duo has brought us.

LocalBlac We Outside


No Comments

Heading over to Los Angeles to meet an artist whose roots are heavily in Little Rock, AR. He bring us his latest singl “we Outside” off of his album ‘Inside Voices Please’. LocalBlac’s latest release, Inside Voices Please!, is now available on Apple Music, Tidal, and Spotify.

The album was produced by AyoDlo (Playboi Carti , Trippie Redd, A$AP Rocky, and Lil Dicky.) When it comes to the album, LocalBlac had this to say, “The album itself was theoretically completed in six sessions. Usually three hour sessions, but in between recording while my engineer spent a couple minutes on building the blueprint for each mix. I would draft out music video ideas, polish songs, generate the framework for the cover and other small pieces during this down time. Ideas just constantly flying out in every session, good ideas, that I was able to finish the entire body of work in six sessions. (while working full time and class three days a week!).”

Look below for some fun facts about LocalBlac as well as thoughts on his latest single.

Young Cardi F.I.L


No Comments

Today we head over to Monaco to meet Young Cardi. He is a rapper, songwriter and record producer. He began pursuing music at the age of 16. Accompanying the release of this single, he is also dropping a clothing line called “Y-C” in collaboration with Champion. With not much else to go on let’s jump right into the music.

Thoughts on F.I.L.

This is a love song and Young Cardi expresses that from the jump. He straight up tells her, he be “falling in love” with you. He wants to fly her out to Paris and give her everything she wants. It’s a fairly short song at only about two minutes so there is little room for error. Young Cardi does well in keeping things concise. You can find the song using the following link:https://ffm.to/youngcardi.ois

Want more Young Cardi

It will be interesting to see Young Cardi on a longer song as he does have a lovely voice. He has some range when he sings and knows exactly what he wants to say.
