Artist Review: Bami – “Stream Of His Grace” EP

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Captivatingly talented with her voice and spiritually authentic in her message, rising Gospel artist Bami brings us on a modernized journey into the realms of uplifting our Faith in God with her much awaited versatile new EP Streaming Of His Grace.

Bami‘s sound is explosive, multifaceted and graciously fun with a ton of multi-genre additives and flavorful beats on this 4-track record. Her electronically-infused sound combines an array of funky riffs, hypnotic jazzy tempos and a salsa/tropical and Latin edge that brings out her voice very effectively and tastefully. Her mid-ranged voice tackles very spiritual content about her Faith in the Lord and really brings a new and fresh approach to the legacy of Gospel music with her compellingly dynamic production and highly intricate song structures.

Delving into the songs themselves, the musicianship factors are unwavering. The rhythmic tempos are extremely neat and tidy and grasp onto composition techniques reminiscent of many jazz and fusion eras, but that’s just one of many components. Her Pop elements also add to the intuitive song structures and really helps carry Bami‘s voice in a way that is front and center, with very tasteful melodies in her vocal approach that resonate perfectly with the bluesy rhythms and chord progressions. This is a modern day triumph of Gospel music that could easily take on a life of its own, and really showcases an amazing range of production techniques and songwriting structures that are rare in Gospel music, if not new altogether.

The most striking part of Streaming Of His Grace is the originality. The record does not emulate any other artist and Bami really delves into a signature sound that is in her own right. You can draw comparisons to her if you think hard enough, but there’s no question that her approach in Gospel is anything but ordinary. If you’re looking for a spiritual record that is also musically fascinating and compelling, then Streaming Of His Grace will absolutely blow your mind.

Artist Review: Peltier – “Duality” EP

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

A record that is musically blissful and emotionally visceral, we get a vast array of beautiful moods and landscapes from artist/producer Peltier‘s newest EP, Duality.

From behind the creative mind of a producer lies a signature sound and a stylistic niche. Combine this with the artistic merit of that same producer, and we have Duality. Comprised of 3 tracks that diligently explore musical emotions and a visual journey into the audio realm.

The first track, “That Spot”, demonstrates the signature touches and vibes that play out through the duration of each track. A perfect introductory tale of the digital world of electronic and EDM that Peltier creates. One thing that is most notable about this track is the effectiveness it has as an instrumental track. The song starts out subtle and ominous, and grasps onto many different layers and components as the song plays out. It’s a more laid back and anthemic beat that heavily expresses moods through the crafted melodies that overlay the song.

Next number, “Sensible Touch”, sticks to a similar recipe as its predecessor, but begins to explore different angles in both writing and production sequences. The synths in both tracks parallel each other beautifully, showcasing the brilliant melody choices Peltier utilizes throughout his song structures. This song is especially melodic in the same way, and continues to bring out the signature sound this EP resonates with.

The final track, “Harpoon”, is more rhythmic and energetic, but still maintains the ambience and textures that have been heard throughout the last two tracks. This song definitely ties the tracks together, almost the same way a trilogy does to films. It’s a resolution to the three songs, and a track that really brings Peltier‘s craft to the forefront in whole. The production quality is very relevant, consistent, and puts a modern visual bliss to audio recording and instrumental songwriting.

These are songs for the creative mind, an EP that delves deep beyond the surface of your emotions, and something you can listen to and relate with when you truly take them in. Peltier‘s Duality is anything but ordinary, and will keep you fascinated on what his future prospects may hold. You’ll also be enticed to look more into his background and prior releases. It’s a record that truly puts electronic music into the emotional realm.

Artist Review: Hyyypnos – “Lie2Me” EP

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

With hypnotic beats, diligent mixes of genres and ambient vocal melodies, singer/producer Hyyypnos demonstrates his visceral production value and signature craft with his newest EP Lie2Me.

Comprised of four multifaceted tracks with different feature artists taking on the vocal roles, each track has its own moods and genre elements that add tasty ingredients to his electronically infused modern Hip Hop sound. One standout thing about this EP is the ambient approach to the songs. With something that could be described as spacey or dreamlike, the essence and aura of this record is captivating and surreal. It even has backup screams that are mixed in a way that is more hypnotic than death-metal oriented.

Another focal point of this record is the multifaceted production value. Between flavorful beats and intelligently crafted vocal melodies, the overall chemistry of the EP just has a great feel to it. There is real substance in these songs and there are several standout post-production sequences that really grab your attention and put an overall uniqueness to the EP’s duration. They’re melodic, identifiable and has a catchiness to it that’ll keep you coming back to these songs more than once. There are no one-trick pony methods whatsoever, this record is completely genuine.

Most notably, Lie2Me is anthemic enough where you’ll be enticed to delve more into Hyyypnos‘ discography as well as future prospects. He’s an artist both behind the vocal booth and behind the mixing board that can really develop songs with depth and a vast array of standout qualities of his caliber. His multi-genre approach is also something that’ll keep you watching to see what tricks he has up his sleeves on future releases. This artist, producer and EP is recommended to anyone and everyone out there who wants to capture the essence of the producer’s chair and the creative mind that sits in it, as well as lives and breathes the music that is created with it.
