Artist Review: K-Styles – “Hydration” EP

Article by: Justyn Brodsky

When taking a close listen to K-Styles on his new EP release Hydration, you can’t help but think that he is more living proof that underground Hip Hop is where the magic is truly made.

Emerging from indie label Solid Grind Entertainment, K-Styles delivers us some street heat with this 3-track banger doused with integrated vocal structures and versatile rhyming techniques. The beats quiver with ambience, the flow is elevated throughout, and in the end we encompass an artist that truly delves into his artistic realm and holds nothing back.

Starting it off right with opening track “Countin'” dives us into the perfect demonstration of K-Styles‘ signature sound and overall craft. His vocal execution over a subtle beat is so much more evident and crisp as opposed to the sounding of alarms we get in a lot of mainstream tracks nowadays. This is bringing back that old school flavor we all fell in love with and bringing it to new heights with a modernized sensibility; making it an appropriate song for any Hip Hop fan, especially those looking for something more authentic.

His anchor single from the EP “Wet (feat. Birdy Bird & Stony Tony)” is definitely the highlight. This song puts catchiness on a whole new level with two feature artists complimenting this track beautifully with each verse. Solidified with a chorus that refuses to leave your head, this track substantiates the perfect amount of energy to keep you on the move, or chill out to a feel good draft. Either way, the three voices on this track really bring it together and is undeniable with its multifaceted lyrical content.

Closing it out with another feel good banger, the track “Coolin'” cools us right off with the perfect resolution to what was started. By the time you get here, you’ll capture the artistic merit that makes K-Styles as relevant as he is, and makes you realize that artists like him are not around every corner. In the age where one could produce an album on their smartphone, you get no sense of that at all. This is a true lyricist that did it right, and didn’t succumb to fratty antics just to get some music out on social media. You can hear loud and clear that this artist truly has the gift of lyricism, the passion for the music, and the hustle for true Hip Hop

Take yourself over to your favorite digital music platform and pick up Hydration. You’ll be glad we sent you there.
