EP Review: Meanwhile: The EP – DayDreamers

As the new year arrive, hip-hop trio DAYDREAMERS have received a trail of hype from their hometown Suffolk, Virginia with their three track EP Meanwhile: The EP.

This neat project gives a sneak preview into what to expect from the uprisers in the forthcoming months. Compared to their previous dub heavy releases on NEW LEASE MUSIC, this EP admittedly has more spice, where each emcee take turns on tearing up the infectious hooks with their slick delivery.

This package may only contain three tracks, but it has A LOT of heat! Check out their EP below:

Album Review: LFTP Season Vol.1 – 3Bubble & J. Gray

Following the release of their critically acclaimed album ‘Pentagon Memoirs’ (2016) – which sits at a well deserve place at number four on NEW LEASE MUSIC’s Top Ten Albums of 2016 list –  I have a very strange feeling that 3BUBBLE & J. GRAY are going to create just as much buzz (if not more) with their brand new album ‘LFTP ‘ Season Vol.1’.

Unlike ‘Pentagon Memoirs’ which boasts summer-ready anthems, ‘LFTP Season Vol.1’ predominately adopts a laid back vibe of old school soul, a tingling sensation that the nine-track set introduces with ‘Vibin’ where the alluring contribution of the saxophone adds that magical touch.

Just in case you’re wondering what ‘LFTP’ stands for – it’s Live From The Pentagon – the name of their label. Like their previous albums, they showcase some of the most promising recruits, such as RAGS and King Kelechi, coming from their hometown Houston – and they’re on a serious mission to bring back old school/golden hip-hop through track ‘LFTP Squad’.

Further along, ‘How Long’ respectfully interrupts the laid-back/retro flow and brings the collection right up to date with its bold, counter rhythmic loop reverberating through the piece. Returning to its original theme, the album finishes off with their prominent tale of life struggles. ‘Leave Me Now’ gives a glimpse into the darkest hours of loneliness and their increasingly mistrust in friends around them.

Like its predecessor,  ‘LFTP Season Vol.1’ is an instantly likeable set; so infectious that it has a strong potential in making it the blog’s next album of the year list and beyond. Check it out below:

New Track: Chloraseptic (Remix) – McSxorpio

After a short spell away from the blog’s spotlight, MCSXORPIO starts the new year with a dope remix of Eminem’s track ‘Chloraseptic’.

The Atlanta hip-hop newcomer – whose aim is to spread positivity among the young generation – made his entry on NEW LEASE MUSIC with his 60s retro debut, ‘New National Anthem.’

Song of the Day: Let It Side – Tee Krispil

TEE KRISPIL steals today’s hotspot with a message for all the lady bosses out there through track, ‘Let It Side’.

The track is about eradicating that fight of inner conflict by going with the gut feeling and be the person you want to be – without being obsessive. In a nutshell the message in this three-minute banger is to let your hair down and Let It Slide.

The accompanied debut video, in Tee words, is ‘as equally bossy as it is silly’, a great representation of the rapper-on the-rise.
