Heavy Metal – [Paris Texas]

Today we have a duo by the name of Paris Texas making their Lyrical Lemonade debut with their brand new music video for “Heavy Metal”. It truly doesn’t take more than thirty seconds of watching this video to see that these guys are different, both sonically and how well they pieced together the visual aspect of this one. Their sound is so fresh + unique that you simply can’t box it into one genre, it’s clear that they grew up with a range of different musical influences, and what that inspiration turned into with their sound is a perfect mix. The sky is the limit for these two, I am so excited to see where they go from here, but for the time being, watch this new visual below!

Five Excellent Beat Projects – [yeyts.] x [Kazam] x [Toshiki Hayashi] x [Handbook] x [igory & TwentyWeeks]

Producers/beatmakers are often unfairly overlooked because of artists. Truth be told, producers are artists themselves, as every instrumental requires its own unique form of craftsmanship, and a precise vision to execute the idea. Without producers, your favorite hit single would simply not sound the same, yet alone exist! Comparable to the clientele work of an artisan or sculptor, when producers craft beats for artists, they must put themselves in another’s shoes to innovate. However, the music of production pioneers Nujabes and J. Dilla demonstrates that instrumentals are entirely separate and complete bodies of work. Applied rapping or vocals are not complements to production, but instead honorary elements that create an alternative version. Therefore, to an extent, the artist serves as a guest feature over the producer’s original creation. To effectively shed greater light to the creative brilliance of producers, I’ve chosen to start a monthly series titled “Five Excellent Beat Projects,” which will highlight five instrumental works that I consider exceptional. yeyts. – seat back – yeyts. is super reserved mellow producer out of San Antonio, Texas. The production of yeyts. often falls under the ‘jazzhop’ category, blending blissful jazz instrumentation with polished hip-hop drums and samples. seat back is the producer’s latest offering, …

No Worries – [Tony Tone]

Introduced to me via his recent “New Crib Freestyle,” Texas artist Tony Tone’s current streak of loosies is becoming quite the must-see occurrence. Today, maintaining the soulful momentum from the last and pushing forward with his latest, the budding talent is here to unveil his new song, “No Worries (Demo).” In comparison to “New Crib Freestyle,” sonically, this release takes an adjacent path toward capturing Tony’s unforgettable personality. The gorgeous, sample-soaked instrumentation keeps things raw without compromising quality, and as a result, “No Worries” has the shimmering personality of a masterful mixtape cut. With no gimmicks involved, the song presents pure skill and endless quotables, never losing its carefree cadence along the way. That said, Tony Tone does it all without ever doing too much, and quite clearly, this is a line that can’t be taught. The PNTHN representative simply has it in him, with “No Worries (Demo)” to attest. Check out the new song below! Produced by Dakota Carley Mixed & Mastered by Pe$o
