With a tight flow is IgnoVa’s party style of “Right Now”. Featuring a nostalgia-tinged sample the song has distinct 90s vibes. By choosing such a unique balance the piece ties together a wide variety of genre: from the gloriousness of its pop affections to the infectious groove that anchors the piece. References weave their way into the narrative that begins to form over the song. The lyrics focus on the joy of living in the moment, of how a life requires one to “seize the moment” and the joy it brings. Best of all is how all of this comes together in such an immersive way.

Finally, lyrics matter
It seems like the new hip hop wave has become unbalanced by an over cast of mumble rappers and autotuners considered to be "generic brand rappers" or copycats who just mimic the same techniques. We all thought hip hop would be making a transformation into something else in years to come due to this. I'm not saying all new rappers take this route but I'm sure we can agree 80% of new hip hop artists sound the same. Without further delay, Presenting: The rebirth of lyrical hip hop, Stream "Substance" free. Jody Lo drops a substantial 6 track EP but I won't tell you its the best EP of 2017 so far I'll tell you to listen for yourself
TwoDaystoAlaska is a project to explore the meaning of life and philosophy through music. The producer is based in London, and used vocal samples together with recorded instruments. This particular song Polaris (Shelter) looks at issues of poverty, and what poverty means to the individual. The camera follows different people during the first half of the video. Who are they? What do they do? During the second half, we start to see the living spaces of homeless people, the cardboard boxes lining the underground walkway. What are their stories?

WAWA delivers inspirational positive vibes with the defiant sound of “Deaf: So What?!”. Downright perfect, WAWA’s flow is impeccable with every song focusing on rising above finding true purpose. Rhythms are infectious to their core, nicely merging together elements of dance, hip-hop, and pop into a lovely whole. By far the highlight of the sound are the highly articulate, thoughtful lyrics that focus on community, togetherness, and perseverance over all obstacles. Nicely joined with light and airy arrangements the songs linger in the mind long after they are over. Throughout the album the songs build off each other, revealing an intricate narrative that ties everything together.
