908ZAY – 908

“Kick it back with a track that employs contrast in a skillful and captivating manner. Mellow, lo-fi vibes and beats with repetitive waterdrop chords, old-school vocal chop hooks, trippy sound effects juxtaposing super dynamic rap flows that portray the streets and the ambition to raise above all in most convincing way.”

Artist said about this track:

"This track is about growing up in Jersey and the people who helped me get to where I am today. Everything in this world is about building connections and I've been blessed to come into contact and work with some amazing creatives across the world. This track alone has a featured artist who is based in Atlanta and a young producer out of Germany. In this era of time distance is no longer an issue in order to create something amazing. I strive to be the best person I can and use music as a way of expression and to speak my truth in this world."

Cozy Fr – Pair of Lies

“Professionalism in writing the text is felt even with an inexperienced hearing and no questions are any questions that you have a real hit in the HIP-Hop genre! The rhythm and the manner of presenting their vocals do not leave any chances for competitors. If, of course, they have -cozy fr- have. What we sincerely doubt. (Automatically Translated with Google Translate)

The Eska – Long Way

““I don’t wanna sound mainstream” is the outright statement with which this track kicks in and its main hook - and indeed there’s a fresh feel about it while at the same time it keeps lots of those good ingredients you’d come to expect from a solid hip-hop production of these days. The Eska seems to be an artist whose promise to catch that “big wind”will come true.”

-Nagamag.com

The song kicks off with a cinematic introduction, which has a bit of a dark mood to it, but it is far from being gloomy. On the contrary, it has a mysterious weight to it, which serves as a perfect way to launch the song. Soon after, a spoken word segment chimes in, highlighting the artist’s willingness to communicate a stronger message with his lyrics from the get-go. At about 23 seconds in, the main beat blasts in, adding a massive dose of low-end and energy to the mix, but without missing out on the atmospheric sounds that made the beginning so special.

Mr. SOS – Peace & Prosperity

“"Mr. SOS" is sending his message through a track inspired from a world full of difficulties. Addictive drums, saxophone loops and vocals telling a story of life struggle. Listen and realize that if you want to improve the world, you've to start from yourself first!”

Mr. SOS revives the important question, "what happened to peace," on this anti-war anthem, "Peace & Prosperity" produced by Maxamill.

Written for Ukraine and all victims of abuse, SOS delivers smooth but concise rhymes over beautiful production made up from hard bass grooves, hypnotic guitar melodies and a sax loop that sounds like a classic hip hop version of Marvin Gaye's "What’s Going On".

The song opens with a story of domestic abuse, focusing on a character named Janie who confronts her abuser. When asked why he chose to tell this story, SOS says, "It’s because we know there's a lot going on in the world right now and we want to be able to help, but we can't fix the world unless we fix ourselves first. It also plays like a metaphor for conflict such as the one happening between Russia & Ukraine."

Then in the second verse SOS gives us positive & inspiring words dedicated to Ukraine and everyone around the world who shares solidarity with the Ukrainian people, as well as a message for all people and leaders. "It’s a song I can see being played by protesters and revolutionaries," adds SOS.

"Peace & Prosperity" is out now, with cover art by Ukrainian artist and graphic designer Mikhailo Polivanov.
