Hip Hop Isn't Dead... It Lives In The HOOD

Stream "Blue Dreams" - https://open.spotify.com/track/09E6Gp10RNU1kI3zOf6RN1?si=8HoPuzzJTC...

For me, rap is perhaps one of the most demanding genres out there for an artist to perform. If you really think about it, it requires an extra effort on multiple levels: in order to excel, a great song needs to have a punchy production, a set of memorable melodies, a characterful voice, and lyrics that actually have some substance How can you pull it off? “Blue Dreams” is a fantastic new single from rapper CPH Ca$talk, and it has all of these qualities, and more.

The artist did an absolutely remarkable job with this release, channeling a wide range of influences. Inspirations for this number include the energy of modern rap and the warm edge of the old school, making for a very distinctive, one-of-a-kind vibe. The first thing you’ll notice is certainly the high quality of this production, in terms of sonic aesthetics. The instrumental mix is balanced and direct, with a really deep low end and a crunchy mid-range that adds a lot of excitement to the track. In addition to that, the treble range is smooth and bright, adding a lot of silky edge to the mix, and allowing the vocals to really pop to the forefront of the mix.

CPH Ca$talk is particularly attentive to the details of his productions, making for a focused and dynamic sound. The instrumental track is perfectly balanced, allowing the vocals to really stand out and pop to the forefront of the mix. There are many contributing factors that make the sound truly excellent: partly, it is due to the expertly crafted mix, and partly due to the clever arrangements and spontaneous performance. This release is a combination of passion, focus and vision, and it combines instinctive artistry with true technical expertise, bridging the gaps between the best of both worlds.

The song’s lyrics are also particularly interesting, offering a personal and witty perspective on a timeless topic, without compromising on the entertainment side. In other words, this song has a lot of depth and a rich concept, but it is also fun and immediate to listen to.
