Chris Grey – The Beginning (EP)

Chris Grey, pushes sonic boundaries of spectral R&B with The Beginning EP. 

Drawing from pop, trap, soul, electronic, and rock influences, Toronto’s Chris Grey demonstrates his musicality on his debut EP, properly-titled, The Beginning.

The 4-track project features the sensual “When I’m Gone,” an invitation to spend the night together without the complications of love or a relationship over explosive synths, while “Unusual” conveys the complexities of unexpected emotional attachment, amongst dark undertones. “Give” and “Goodbye” continue the story to its inevitable conclusion. With a trademark sound established, Chis Grey takes listeners on a resounding and vulnerable journey difficult to stop listening to.

The lavish guitar solos add an additional layer to his emotional and vulnerable, contemporary R&B work. It’s only the beginning for this talented young artist.

Izzy Strange – Izzy Duz It (Mixtape)

Izzy Duz It. The title serves as a double entendre, inspired by Eazy E’s explicit debut project and showcasing Izzy Strange‘s ability to create multifaceted music that spreads over a multitude of genres.

Three months prior to “Izzy Duz It”, a single surfaced from Strange featuring Blu and a rising singer out of Izzy’s hometown, Sara Fox. Titled “Just Me”, the soulfully charged Mayeniac & Leauxfi production found the trio speaking on standing on your own two feet. Then in late September, Izzy returned with the chilling tales of “Halfway Crooks” alongside Mick Jenkins and a ghastly Nate Fox instrumental. Shortly after, the news of “Izzy Duz It” was announced along with news of the aforementioned singles being added in to the mix.

With expectations set extremely high for his third album, “The Die Is Cast”, the songwriter found himself within a deep creation zone this past summer. In between brainstorming sessions for the album, he would scowl thru beats on YouTube. After venting over a few tracks, Strange was inspired to create a mixtape to continue the strong momentum he’s amassed over the past couple of years.

The mixtape features Mick Jenkins, Blu, Nacho Picasso, Tedy Andreas and Sara Fox. Production was carried out by Nate Fox (Chance the Rapper), Casa Nada, Fravo, Free Beatz, Bliss, Kenneth English, Pax Orbis, Ill Noise, FIEND, Emani, Mayeniac & LeauxFi. “Izzy Duz It” is a free mixtape available to download solely on Soundcloud. Stay tuned for accompanying videos to surface in the coming times.

Quote from Izzy concerning “Izzy Duz It”

The majority of the tracks were written and recorded in June of 2018. While working on my upcoming album. “The Die Is Cast”, I felt like I needed to release some thoughts that didn’t fit the concept. Overall, I recorded/wrote 30 tracks during that summer span, narrowing it down to just 11 for the final cut of “Izzy Duz It”. The name itself is in reference to the array of styles the mixtape holds and the Eazy-E album, “Eazy Duz It”. This mixtape is more of an affirmation for myself as an artist and a way to release some of the frustration and anxiousness I was going through.

The following year, the album won the 2008 Syracuse Area Music Award for Best Hip Hop and Rap Album. Two years later, Oxburg released his sophomore album, Premonition, which was praised for its “maturity”, “lyrical content”, “and lack of fabrication.” Oxburg has also ventured into acting, having starred in The End, a small film directed by Michael “Doowittle” Widger, a noted director in the Syracuse area.

Oxburg has been on tour, and has opened up for notable recording artists including, but not limited to The Roots and Quest Love, Common, Jadakiss, Styles P, Bobby Valentino, Cassidy, Kid Ink, Juelz Santana, Jim Jones, and Nicole Ray.

Aztek the Barfly – “Line King” (Album)

Punch line laden bars over banging beats. That has been the Detroit native Aztek the Barfly’s formula thus far and he does not deviate from that path with his latest release entitled Line King. The album is produced entirely by long time collaborator/partner in rhyme Detroit producer/emcee Foul Mouth. The combination of these two provides a maniacally crafted soundscape any mad scientist would be envious of. Aztek has taken the gloves off delivering haymaker punch line after punch line weaving in and out of dense rhyme schemes. Line King creates vivid almost palatable images for the listener propelling The Barfly into the top tier of lyricists. Line King marks Aztek’s third solo album and the first release on the Middle Finger Music imprint.
