"CHASE" is the breakdown of an unhealthy companionship between 2 lovers .... one of which, decides that because her love is so great and her partner doesn't feel this emotion in equivalence, she must take drastic measures to keep him for herself ....
The New School Philosopher
After listening to Virginia artist Maurice Daniel's latest project entitled "Hiding in Plain Sight", it was almost as if it was imperative to light a cigar and pour a glass of bourbon, sit down and simply listen. The project is raw. The samples are inspiring. Close your eyes as the soundcloud streams and you'll think your computer is spinning a vinyl. The track that I play the most has to be "Perfectly Wrong" which is the last track on the project. It's the hidden gem, no pun intended. The song's poetic intimacy is directed towards a fragile women and the mistakes leading up to a dysfunctional love triangle. I cannot put into words how important this entire project, as well as the artistry as a whole is for the genre of hip-hop in this day and age. This is truly beautiful music, stemming from the roots of the culture.
Hip-hop's Project X
TLA artists Cal Mobley & Dubby have teamed up to create a party of epic proportions w/ their Bradly Atom filmed visual, "Ante Meridiem". The video is the notable single off of THE CLIMB EP which you can stream live off of soundcloud or purchase for $3 on Band Camp. An interesting fact about the video is that it was all created within the confines of the two artists' apartment. The apartment serves as a video set and is already being used for another up and coming visual. For a review on the new material, check out the indie hip-hop critique, NikkiSixx, who wrote a rather intriguing article on Team Loko's new music!
