Sometimes fate just has a way of bringing things together. The new Denver/Dallas R&B supergroup ARTARI can at least partially thank the stars for their creation, and their debut track Complicated is the product of both circumstance and hard work.
If there's one thing you can be certain of when tuning into a nofacevalue project, it's that you'll hear something like nothing else you've ever listened to before. 22 BIRDS may only be 4 songs (and under 10 minutes total), but there is plenty of unique music to dissect along the way. The Colorado artist brings his signature high pitched vocals to all 4 tracks, employing distinctive flows and mixing techniques throughout, clearly leaving his mark on every second of the tape. The production matches nofacevalue's dynamic presence and adds to the atmosphere. Listen to all of 22 BIRDS below.
Vwillz has been on our radar for a little bit at this point and he has stayed remarkably consistent since we discovered him. His latest track, new phone freestyle, is short but undeniably dope as he comes through with soft yet catchy vocals over a catchy beat from Jlaker. Sometimes songs under two minutes are my favorite just because of how many times they make me hit replay. Listen to new phone freestyle below and be on the lookout for more from Vwillz.
Talent can be found all across the country and Boston's Reedus 3M shows that Bean Town has some hidden heat. His latest track, Tethered features some excellent production that starts off slow but builds into a catchy, head boppin' vibe. Reedus takes advantage of the solid beat with some equally impressive flows and verses. Listen to Tethered below and get in tune with this up and coming Boston rapper.
I always get hyped when Doobie Danx drops a new track because I don't think he's dropped a bad song yet. His latest effort, Dime, is another example of the dope music he makes. Smooth harmonies, solid flows, and catchy production all come to play on this one and combine for one of the dopest songs to come out of the Mile High City this month. If Doobie can stay this consistent, it looks like he'll be one of Denver's premier artists. Check out Dime below.
Another day, another dope Denver artist to be discovered. Paridox, an 18 year old from Aurora, is one of those artists that just seems to have it. His latest track Enemy shows that talent with catchy vocals, a smooth beat, and a personal, introspective vibe that gives the song an authentic feel to it.
Intellect is one of the first we are getting the chance to write about and his project Out Of Left Field comes in strong with some old school, lyrical vibes that bring back that classic hip hop sound.
The 303's hip hop scene is becoming more robust by the day, and NTG Sound is the latest artist to make his presence felt in the city. His new tape Like Never Before is a solid example of his skills, especially the title track and Pay The Price, both of which showcase NTG's talent.
If there’s one thing the city of Denver isn’t short of, and that’s musical geniuses. Day after day, new artists pop up on our radar and you best believe Granola caught our attention. With an infectious melody that keeps you moving, and the wavy wordplay that brings you back to those late summer nights riding around town, Granola is someone to watch closely in 2019.
