MIXTAPES

NUMBA1VIKTIM – [Wiardon]

By Seamus Fay // 13 Nov 2018

Dusting off obscure samples and telling stories through his illustrative lyricism, Texas artist Wiardon is on our pages today with a stellar new project entitled NUMBA1VIKTIM. Brash in its ways while undeniably skillful, this project sheds a light on an absolute prodigy in the making, as the newly-turned 16-year old talent provides clever rhymes with prowess far beyond his years. Even amidst a feature from a well-established gem in the game by the name of Wiki, he holds his own, and as it seems, this budding star can compete with the best without ever exceeding his naturally-entertaining, effortless style. Add this skill to captivating, sample-based instrumentals and gritty charisma, and you’ve got a project that hints at an incredibly bright future for Wiardon. After falling in love with this project upon my first listen, I’ve determined that my current favorite cut on this one is the lush finale, “Deniro” alongside StunnaManSam, but don’t just take my word for it. Stream NUMBA1VIKTIM on both SoundCloud and Bandcamp and follow Wiardon on Twitter here! Art by Ayjrian Tiu Mixed by Kaam Beats

What Faces The Sun – [Tullis]

By Seamus Fay // 7 Nov 2018

Communicating emotion as genuinely as possible has, and always will be, one of the defining characteristics of timeless music, in my eyes. Embodying this trait is What Faces The Sun — the latest project from an unbelievably talented new artist by the name of Tullis. Stumbling upon this release via Twitter, the versatility and advanced creative vision of this rising talent were the main two aspects of his music that caused me to keep clicking replay. Tullis’ style is refreshing in its undiluted devotion to pushing the boundaries of creativity, and in such a way, it also provides a perfected look into the intersection between music and life — a blurred line which Tullis communicates by translating his trials and tribulations directly into songs for listeners to resonate with. What Faces The Sun is a reflective, thought-provoking listen and a project that I would certainly encourage all of our readers to delve into. That said, be sure to check this one out at the link below and follow Tullis on Twitter here!

Life Away From Home – [Tim Gent]

By Elliot Montanez // 5 Nov 2018

We have one last Lyrical Lemonade debut for our audience tonight, and this time around it’s for Tim Gent’s latest project titled “Life Away From Home”. I apologize because I am a few weeks late on the release of this tape, but I just found it while browsing through Soundcloud and I must admit that I was very impressed. My favorite trait about Tennessee artist Tim Gent is that he has the ability to rap circles around his competition, and he does he great job at pairing his style with some soulful vibes to make it that much more effective. The producers that were featured on this project did an excellent job so much love to Write Sounds, Tim Gent, JT. A.B., Free P, Syksense, Chazen Singleton and Case Arnold for paving the way. I can disregard the features that helped put the finishing touches on this tape so shout out to Case Arnold, Bryant Taylorr, Kyro Swank$ and Jamiah Hudson for helping create this amazing project. Above all Tim Gent had the vision to bring together all of these creatives and he really created a project so good that it felt more like a story due to the skits …

Bedroom Headroom – [The Booyah! Kids]

By Seamus Fay // 30 Oct 2018

Stumbling upon their newest project, Bedroom Headroom, I can honestly say that The Booyah! Kids — a group comprised of the musical talents of Aidan Ludlam, Emma Lee, and Julian Kaufman — are the perfect embodiment of the infectious charm of bedroom pop. Fun and relaxed while remarkably authentic in their ways, this trio of friends is dead set on making great music and enjoying themselves while doing it, which is perfectly reflected in the funloving sonic direction of their latest project. Over the course of 9 songs, they introduce themselves with bright personality and a certain lovable charisma, which loads up on replay value and makes Bedroom Headroom an easy yet wildly entertaining listen for all of our readers out there. This is a really solid project that will definitely create some buzz behind The Booyah! Kids, so be sure to check it out below and let us know what you think in the comments!

The Sound of Bad Habit – [Baby Keem]

By Seamus Fay // 30 Oct 2018

Baby Keem is on a rapid rise to the top right now, and backed by the revered hitmaker, Cardo Got Wings, he’s here to prove that there’s an amply supply of substance behind the hype with a hard-hitting new project, The Sound of Bad Habit. 12 tracks long, this project keeps each song short and sweet, maintaining the listener’s attention with ease all the way throughout. Keem never overstays his welcome, but instead chooses to let out small doses of his addictive style in ways that will surely keep listeners coming back for more. With this, the latest from the budding star is a true testament to the lovable personality and energetic presence he holds when on the mic, and if The Sound of Bad Habit is any indication of what Baby Keem has on the way, then it’s safe to say that all signs are pointing up for the young talent.

Don’t Forget About Me, Demos – [Dominic Fike]

By Elliot Montanez // 24 Oct 2018

Dominic Fike is an artist that I just discovered for the first time as I stumbled across his brand new project titled “Don’t Forget About Me, Demos”, and it’s nothing you want to miss out on. There is six total records on this tape but you wouldn’t be able to tell by the quality of the music, it feels like a lot more then it really is, probably because each of the instrumentals provided are packed with multiple layers, not to mention that Dominic can switch his flows seamlessly. Florida has been producing mass amounts of musical talent for a hot minute now and Dominic Fike is looking to join that growing list, if you ask me this kid has some major potential and I am very excited to see where he takes it from here. Check out this brand new tape below and if you like it be sure to give Dominic Fike a follow on Twitter here.

Treehouse Audio – [Jack Karowak]

By Seamus Fay // 23 Oct 2018

In recent years, Massachusetts has dusted itself off and formed a rejuvenated music scene, yielding a number of promising talents in the process. It’s getting to the point where MA talent simply can’t be ignored, and here to embody this is one of the state’s finest artists, Jack Karowak, with his long-awaited debut project, Treehouse Audio. 9 tracks long, this offering masters the art of maximizing the power of words and sounds, using remarkably few songs to provide such a comprehensive emotional and mental recap of the life that led Karowak to this moment. It’s inherently true-to-self and absolutely beautiful in terms of sonic direction, embodying a similar effect on listeners to that of a picturesque summer sunset, as noted on the cover art. Jack Karowak put his entire heart and soul into Treehouse Audio, and the result is one of the best projects to come out of Massachusetts in quite some time. The release of a debut project is a moment of graduation for any artist, and in the talent’s case, it’s also a moment of brilliant potential that is about to propel him into an abundance of well-deserved success. Karowak is up next, so be sure to listen to his …
