From the album, Gorgeous Polo Sportsmen, Futurewave and Raz Fresco give the track, Solar Flare the video treatment. The production and the lyrical element just blend in a coherent vision here. I love what almost feels like a native american element in the music with the wind instrumentation, and Fresco just drops a science that cuts through the air like a whisper in the wind. Sounds really good.
Here’s the new visual, Picture Yourself, from Rigz and Futurewave’s project, Substance Abuse. When I saw that these two were collaborating several month’s ago, I knew we were in store for something special and they did not disappoint. Intricate and sharp lyricism appears in tandem with you cutting edge boom bap with several twists and turns. You need to check this album!
Whatever moniker these guys put out their music under, Futurewave, Asun Eastwood, and Daniel Son only drop gems. Ever since they got their sound out a few years ago, their names stay ringing. And we all keep close tabs on when they are going to drop their next projects. So now we have Bite The Bullet, a subsequent offering from last year’s joint, Physics Of Filth (which I still bump steadily). It’s potent material that hip hop fans are going to be sure to love.
Daniel Son and Futurewave have killed it yet again with their recent album collaboration, Yenaldooshi. This album is full of gems just like this. Futurewave layers some mellow and boom bap for Daniel Son to put out something memorable with lines just like this. He’s always in the pocket:
“Maybe you’ll get signed if you tag Conway a hundred times…”
“It’s a sad sight….the devil wouldn’t buy your soul for half price…”
“Gave your life to this shit…and then the shit forgot ya…”
Let me let you in on a secret…Daniel Son and Futurewave are the best combination doing it right now. They hit on all cylinders when they chef up some new music. Whether you listen to Pressure Cooker or Physics of Filth, you will recognize the high degree of talent and chemistry that exists.
Poppy Resin is just the tip of the iceberg off of their new album, Yenaldooshi, which I have listened to twice at the point with more listens to come. There is a brilliant darkness here that needs to have a constant light shed on it. Al Divino lends his grimy approach to this particular track and it is indeed flames.
Rome Streetz and Futurewave? Yes sir/ma’am!!! We have it. An ill combination that seems like was just a matter of time when considering their talent levels. Fortune Favors The Bold is also an appropriately titled track, as the guys are leaving it all out there musically for us to hear.
The Heacrack project is on it’s way!
This is a current Dream Team right here! BrownBagMoney connects with Da Cloth over a Futurewave beat, and then the world just catches aflame. That’s how hot this shit is! Rigz, Saipher Soze, Daniel Son, and Mooch drop salvo after salvo of street lyricism that will have you yearning for more. This is a combination that needs let’s say a 16 track opus. A few posse cuts…each artist having their own track…all over some Futurewave production. That has all the trappings of classic.
A guy can dream can’t he?
Well, here we are! Our Top 10 albums from 2018. I literally listened to hundreds of projects this year so giving you a top ten was no easy task considering not only the number of albums but also the quality. And these lists are always prone to spark debate and conversation, but that’s part of the fun, isn’t it? I simply wanted to shine a light on my favorite joints this year and in part give my definitive salute as a fan to these artists and their body of work. Here we go…Enjoy!!
