Realm Of Light – [Roxas]

The pressure for rising acts to make a statement in every single musical medium possible as they embark on their rise to prominence has been ever-present throughout the course of history and is still vividly existent today. Impressing on a single-by-single basis is one thing on its own, but it is something entirely different for a promising act to prove themselves in their first-ever project. Building off of this sentiment even more, this situation becomes that much more daunting when one’s rise to prominence is dictated by their rapid release schedule of singles alone, and to burst on a given scene with as much force and talent alike this way, the logical next step would be to take up this task to create something far more ambitious. That situation is exactly where one of the underground’s most recent prodigies in Roxas found himself before releasing his debut EP “Realm Of Light” just a short time ago. The Graveem1nd standout had already cemented his place as one of this year’s most in-demand talents to grace this already-crowded Internet-based scene with a flawless string of singles that all added something new to this limitless talent that we see now — but in …

Capone – [ICEDOUTOMNITRIX] x [Roxas]

There are seldom individuals who can lay claim to the same type of resounding influence that ICEDOUTOMNITRIX has over the modern music landscape today. Being a beacon for any and all modern eras in the world of hip-hop, he has convincingly taken the sounds of yesterday and infused them with a certain sense of relevance, prowess, and overall quality that has left those who follow in his light the clearest path towards reaching the already-monumental place that he stands in right now. Though this telling influence is entirely powerful and quite obvious once fully recognizing it, his status is rarely placed on the pedestal that it deserves — both in his effect on the music he makes alone, and also via his outstretching nature towards rising figures that look to take after him. But if there were to be a song that fully encapsulates both of those aforementioned aspects within his untapped artistry, it would certainly be his most recent offering “Capone” with once of music’s brightest young talents in Roxas. This track serves as the epitome for all that he represents as a wholly integral figure within contemporary music today, and it is by all means an all-too-outstanding single …

Malevolent – [Roxas]

The rising and prevalent Internet-based musical underground has been developing a plethora of new and never-before-seen attitudes in regards to the genres of pop, hip-hop, and beyond. Acts in this light have been developing a stunning sense of confidence with their delivery on the mic or otherwise, yet many of them have coded that very approach with lyrics that range from equally boastful, to selflessly honest and down-to-earth. This approach is nothing new from a spectacle given the eccentric nature that both of these genres have brought throughout their respective histories, but perhaps no single act today is communicating this methodology in a nuanced light better than Roxas has this year with his incredibly resounding debut year on this scene itself. The Graveem1nd forerunner has been just as successful at intertwining the worlds of pop and hip-hop as he has at balancing a telling sense of honesty with an all-too-upfront and definitively confident demeanor through his delivery; these aspects are impressive on their own, but they become more than just that when the sheer unmatched quality of his music becomes apparent in the process. Embodying all that those previously mentioned details represent in regards to his artistry, his newest single …

Poser – [Roxas feat. Cusifye and Kasper Gem]

One of the numerous telling narratives that have circulated amongst the rising next wave of pop music is the concept of collective-synergy and transparency — and those terms are meant in the most literal ways imaginable. Despite how numerous collectives seem to spring up within this scene and come to rule the grander landscape with their influence, their rosters often have overlapping artists, and even if that is not the case, they certainly are always ones to work with each other despite the differences in name and/or contemporaries.   In taking in this sentiment, it has come to be the case that certain collectives are even helping those that are springing up and on the come up in the process — which speaks to the level of sincerity, collaboration, and community effort that this scene exudes time and time again. And when this process is flaunted at its highest degree, the resulting music that comes about is nearly always remarkable and resounding.    That is certainly the case with quite possibly the hottest rising act in this scene as it stands with Roxas, and it just so happens that he is at the forefront of an equally hot and rising …

Takeaway – [Roxas]

As this upcoming wave of prolific, creative, and simply one-in-a-lifetime crop of pop acts grows larger and larger by each day’s end, it can become extremely difficult to truly stand out as a singular entity. Some artists subvert this fact by joining collectives that may feature higher-profile acts, but it still remains almost as challenging to make yourself known on a solo level nonetheless.   With that being said, it is that much more remarkable when an artist bursts onto the scene with enough force to not only make themselves known as a mainstay in the scene already, but one that is can realistically be placed among the best that their original launching pad – their own collective – has to offer all the same.   Not a single individual has been able to accomplish this rare feat in recent times as vividly and almost so effortlessly as Roxas has. Though their collective Graveem1nd has arguably one of the most full and talented rosters that the underground has to offer, Roxas has put together a string of singles as of late that has placed them among even the best that this collective has in store, which is truly saying a …
