Alone – [Night Lovell]

When most people think of Canadian music, Night Lovell used to probably be one of the last names that would come to mind for most music listeners. Luckily, I’m not like most music listeners, and he is probably at the very top of my list, and it’s been this way for years. His deep voice just lingers over all the peculiar beats he uses, and it echoes off into your mind in such a smooth, buttery fashion. It’s because of this that he is an absolutely magnificent and obvious addition to the G59 roster, and his impact on the label has been notable, to say the least. With Halloween just around the corner, his music should be more relevant than ever, and thankfully he decided to gift fans with a brand-new song entitled “Alone”, which contributes to his discography brilliantly. The production begins with some hauntingly deep synths and an eerie whistle before piercing 808s and chattering percussion comes into the picture. Lovell feels right at home over this style of instrumental and every single element complements his voice flawlessly as he goes in with his low pitch and suave cadence. His flow is casual and unhurried, but his words …

Yakuza – [Do Not Resurrect]

Those of you who have read many of my other articles know that my preference for music contains a wide range of different genres and subgenres. Out of all these different types of music, I go through moments in time where the dark, gritty styles truly just get me, and I go on streaks of listening to artists like $uicideboy$ and Night Lovell nonstop. While the shadowy themes, aggressive demeanors, and ominous vibes that come from many of these artists can be a bit off-putting to some, I can’t help but to dive in headfirst and just surround myself with these hard-hitting offerings. Although the aforementioned artists are getting national recognition and most Rap fans have at least heard of them, there are up and coming acts such as Do Not Resurrect, a young talent who I was recently put onto and have yet to hear a single song by him that I don’t completely and thoroughly enjoy. Most recently, this past weekend, he dropped off a track entitled “Yakuza”, and his skills are in full effect on this record. There seems to be some sort of sample being utilized right off the bat before DNR comes in to spit …

Primordial Ooze – [do not resurrect]

Ever since I got into underground Rap music, I’ve exposed myself to a variety of different subgenres and have an appreciation for most of these different categories. Out of all of them, some of my favorite music has been made by artists like $uicideboy$, Night Lovell, Ghostemane, and others, and I can’t really put a finger on exactly why. I almost feel self-conscious playing songs from artists like them for people I’m not overly familiar with due to a fear of being judged, but I typically do it anyway because, at the end of the day, I don’t truly care what they think of my taste in music. I guess I enjoy this typic of Rap because not only do the beats always go so hard, there’s just so much expression, passion, and emotion behind the dark stories that are delivered, and this adds elements that are just plain and simply missing in other types of Rap music. Although these artists have very deep and constantly growing arsenals of music that fans could never grow tired of, I’m always on the lookout for other talents that are making equally as impressive and unique music. Most recently, my brother put me …

Itchin’ for a Lick – [Jazz Cartier]

When you think of Canadian music, you might think of Rap considering I’m not really sure what other forms of music have made it big enough to truly travel into the states. The only thing is, you’re most likely thinking of Drake, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Tory Lanez, or maybe even Night Lovell, but one of the best artists coming out of the entire country is undoubtedly Jazz Cartier. His slight accent cuts through beats of all kinds, he’s not afraid to switch his style up, and he’s not trying to be someone he’s not. Although I’m not overly familiar with the Toronto phenom, I’ve gained more and more recognition for his craft after diving deeper into his discography recently. What I have noticed since divulging myself in his music is that he’s been quieter than most underground artists like to be for a little more than a year. Normally artists are afraid that they’re going to lose fans or the spotlight if they remain silent for too long of a hiatus, but this isn’t the case for Cartier. Luckily, he’s back with “Itchin’ for a Lick”, a new song that is hopefully a starting point for more new music to come. This …

I Heard You Were Looking for Me – [Night Lovell]

Night Lovell is one of the wildest artists in the current state of hip hop. His calm demeanor gives him a sort of persona that is basically the complete opposite of his lyrics and overall aura. His extremely deep voice meshes well with the lyrical content he provides in all of his songs because they combine to create an almost demonic character that is beyond dark. On the other hand, from interviews I’ve seen with the Canadian underground phenomenon, he seems like an extremely pleasant person so it seems as if he puts a mask on for his music and pretty much becomes a different person to get some things off his chest. In my opinion, he’s basically the Jekyll and Hyde of the rap game, which isn’t easy to do in the slightest. He’s back and better than ever in the single he decided to randomly drop called “I Heard You Were Looking for Me”. The beat kicks off with some tapping symbols before the drums come in to change the vibe completely. Once the blaring 808s are introduced, so are some eerie humming and soft bells in the background throughout. Lovell’s voice is as smooth as ever and …

Lethal Presence – [Night Lovell]

The Dark Prince of Underground Rap has emerged with a haunting new single that is sure to appease his cult fanbase. Night Lovell has typically dropped music very rarely but building off his album earlier this year he has released a new song and video for “Lethal Presence” that is sure to get his audience ready to rage. This song has a certain sinister tone to it, in it Night touches on releasing music with a vengeance on his own terms. He seems to be back with a reignited spirit, a dangerous fact for anybody trying to get in his way. The Ottawa native has built an insane group of fans that span across the world. As many artists he came up with have not been able to keep up with the times, Night is poised to grow bigger than ever in the next year. The visuals on this record are a perfect visualization of Night’s life filled with sold-out venues and exotic cars in the midst of Russia. Being that we got a single to close out the year it seems Night is plotting something big for the new decade, stay posted for the madness to come. Listen to …

Delaware’s Free Spirit With the Wild Mane, Lil West, Talks Mining Relationships, Finding ‘Balance’ and More on the New Vex Part 1

It’s a safe bet that the vast majority of Americans, asked to name someone from Delaware off the top of their heads, could only come up with that of Joe Biden, the former vice president currently dragging out a will-he-or-won’t-he-run guessing game regarding the 2020 presidential race. But that doesn’t mean the nation’s “First State”—our second smallest in area—hasn’t produced other accomplished individuals, including, in the hip-hop world, one of the more quietly promising young talents to emerge in recent years: melodic genre-buster Lil West. The southern Delaware town of Bridgeville—population, 2000 and change—isn’t what you’d call a hip-hop mecca, but then 20-year-old West is hardly a conventional singer and rapper. The first thing I notice as West and I sit down in a booth at the midtown location of Manhattan favorite Blue Ribbon Sushi—is that his famously wild hair has been brought under control. If the artist has one signature visual trait that’s helped stand him out from the pack during his come-up, it’s a leonine mane that serves as a nice  visual signifier of his free spirit. The hair has been on full display in videos like last year’s “No More” and the recent “Somedays” – but this …

Mental Slavery – [Night Lovell] ft. [Lil West]

As you can tell from any one of my Lyrical Lemonade features, I tend to lean towards smoother songs filled with color and bounce. However, Night Lovell is not that, and still, I can’t seem to pull away from his new album, GOODNIGHT LOVELL. Two years since the release of Red Teenage Melody, it’s clear the Canadian emcee has grown so much, taking the time to hone in on the sound and direction of GOODNIGHT LOVELL resulting in a strong, cohesive body of work that transports you into Lovell’s dark, nightmarish world. The whole project is worth a listen, but I found “Mental Slavery” to be a standout due to the addition of Lil West. Lovell comes with his typical growling, haunting vocals, but they just hit differently when juxtaposed with Lil West higher pitched, fervent style. Considering it’s one of the only guest spots on the album–Lovell is more than capable of shouldering the load–it makes the moment all the more engaging when placed in the full picture.

Joan Of Arc – [Night Lovell] Ft. [$UICIDEBOY$]

Ottawa’s own Night Lovell has proven to be a force to be reckoned with in the underground and his $UICIDEBOY$-assisted track Joan Of Arc is only more proof of that. Produced by Bud Dwyer (AKA $crim,) the hard-hitting beat was right at home for both Lovell and his counterparts who flooded the instrumental with their lethal verses that almost have enough demonic energy to make you possessed. Following his appearance on DJ Scheme’s single Love Kills Slowly, the momentum continues to roll in Lovell’s corner as we head into the halfway point of the year and with each feature or release comes more reason to tune-in and get behind the up-and-coming 22-year-old Canadian rapper. Whether or not you’re new on Night Lovell, press play on this heater below in Joan Of Arc with the $UICIDEBOY$ and keep an eye for more from these names in the near future.
