NYC-based artist EsZ recently released a 6-song EP ‘If You Didn’t Get this Message, Call Me’. The project is certain to deliver the distinct sounds that EsZ fans are familiar with, which consists of a fusion of mellow instrumentals, gritty lyrics, and thought-provoking lyrical content. EsZ showcases his diverse skill-set when it comes to being an avant garde hip-hop artist performing within a new soundscape.

Listeners will be introduced to “Woke Up, Hands High” the premier track on the EP and they will not be disappointed. EsZ performs with a one-of-a-kind cadence that neophytes will relish along with his youthful tone of voice. EsZ delivers freshly-cut bars which are accentuated by soulful female vocals drifting in and out of the track in the background. The story-telling on the “Woke Up, Hands High” is not only sincere but entertaining as the listeners. Fans cannot help but to understand that EsZ is a progressive artist that is well beyond his years in performance.

The follow-on track on ‘If You Didn’t Get This Message, Call Me’, is “Saucy” a classic EsZ style track adorned with salacious lyrics and ironic metaphors. This particular track however, does have a throwback screwed-up vibe that we haven’t really heard since the early 2000s while overall appealing to a current ear. EsZ is incredibly detailed in his execution of bars and never misses the mark on delivering a catchy hook. “Saucy” is the perfect combination of grime, sensuality and a little bit of the streets mixed with a dirty club feel.

EsZ switches things up with “Going Under” which introduces a more underground sound. Lyrically, the track is poetic in nature, with a very pensive vibration. Production on “Going Under” is unblemished much like the previous tracks, however it has a simple and clean vibe that is primarily bass-driven with a synth-infused flair. “Going Under” is a minimalist performance with an infectious mist of vapor.

Next on the playlist is “We Danced For, Dazed All Summer”, a down-tempo mix with a recognizable Latin zest. EsZ takes listeners into his virtual domain while illustrating a series of mind-bending scenarios using descriptive lyrics and evoking colorful visuals through word. “We Danced For, Dazed All Summer” is categorically a chilled-out track with a lazy vibe. The track performs like a sweltering hot day at the beach somewhere on a tropical island. Fans will be in for a treat as this track takes a surprising twist, but we won’t divulge all of the deets so that you can listen for your self.

“If You Didn’t Get This Message, Call Me” starts to wind down with “To Live the Good Life”, another powerful performance by EsZ who sheds some light into what he calls Erron’s Attic, which we can only suggest would be considered a glimpse into his universe. “To Live the Good Life” is a smokey track that rests heavy on the mind. Juxtaposed with the title itself, there is an emotional presence that can be experienced while absorbing the words penned on the track leaving fans to wonder, what’s really going on up in Erron’s Attic?

What could be considered as one of the most polished performances of 2017, EsZ leaves fans with “Touching Base/Your Colors” a loungy tune with a subtle rebellious energy. The Brooklyn-based artist shares a myriad of experiences over this piano-infused track that vary from aspirational to painful with a twinge of heartbreak and inevitable healing.

EsZ is a revolutionary artist that leaves it all on the stage with every single performance. Music fans who are looking for substance and content that is succinct will not be disappointed as there are few mainstream artists today that are capable of delivering more than a catchy beat and incoherent expressions of mediocrity. EsZ happens to be the complete opposite. Falling more along the lines of hip-hop artists such as Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole to name just a few, EsZ has developed a credible game that is to be respected in terms of his artistic prowess. Not only is he able to deliver meaningful flows but his sound undoubtedly appeals to the masses as observed through his ever-growing fan base from around the world.

EsZ, though a young artist is wise beyond his years and this is evident in his intricate story-telling. He is truly a unique and multi-faceted artist that introduces a fresh perspective on life in the new millennium.

EsZ is the epitome of art and culture. Hailing from the hip-hop hub of the universe, New York City, Erron is a true contemporary. He is a visual artist as well as a performing artist, fusing his passion together to leave his mark on this world. By nature, Erron is a creative who is known for not only his strikingly visual art but his ability to deliver clever rhymes through music. His music has been covered in popular publications such as Underground Hip Hop and he has a growing legion of fans from across the world. “If You Didn’t Get This Message, Call Me” is the latest release by EsZ and it is available for your digital shopping pleasure on iTunes and Spotify.

A.R.T. LIVE Presents Frederick Your guide to a cool summer street look

0

Often when one thinks of hip hop you think of New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta Chicago, New Orleans, etc. Rarely does Florida come immediately to mind unless mentioned. Though the state does boast several notable rappers such as Rick Ross, Trick Daddy, Trina, Plies, T – Pain, and Dj Khaled to name a few. Often times the Miami party scene over shadows the musical talent that lies in the state. This truth is what inspires South Florida music artists like Frederick. The 24 year-old YG, SUPER affiliated hip hop artist hailing from Fort Lauderdale, Florida is on a mission to break through the spring break, South Beach, and strip club facade that hangs over the Miami music scene.

Frederick got his start later on in his life. He began to take music more seriously when he was 21 years old. This occurred from being around friends who were older than him and that inspired him to express his true self musically. They also pushed Frederick to create his own unique sound. This sound has stuck with him and molded him into the artist he is today.

Though Frederick’s initial start came from outside influencers his motivation for his craft stems from inside. It comes from the idea of introducing a different sound to the city, the amount of fun he has performing music to different crowds and being creative with friends is everything to him. These factors not only drive his motivation but they fuel the creation of his music. It is also the reasoning behind the aspirations he has for himself over the course of his career.

When asked in depth about his ultimate career goals Frederick had this to say, “I have many career goals, but one of them would be to meet Kendrick Lamar! I love him so much! Another career goal is to open the door for other artists from South Florida so that we can prove to other people that we can actually make amazing music as well.” To end the stigmas so often associated with his native music scene could easily be viewed as a daunting task but it’s one Frederick gladly accepts.

Over his career Frederick has had to face several obstacles but with every trouble came a triumph. One of the worst experiences he’s encountered was when he was at a show and a person (who shall remain nameless) told him that his music sucks and that it’ll never make it anywhere. That really got to Frederick for a while. Yet in the same situation came Frederick’s best experience which was performing his music on stage for the first time and looking at the nay-sayer’s shocked reaction once he saw that the people in the crowd fell in love with Frederick’s music. It’s times like these that made the quote “keep on runnin’.” a saying Frederick has come to live by.

Frederick can be followed on Instagram @Fredericktheegreat and on Soundcloud here: https://m.soundcloud.com/fredericktheegreat  Check out some shots of him performing live at A.R.T. LIVE: Soul Night on this post and check out A.R.T. LIVE here.
