New Singles: Maps Music, Sadistik, Pete Santos, AyoK & More!
Sy: A few new rap singles to check out!
1.) Maps Music - Laid Back
Maps Music (the brainchild of Mario Alberto Paez) has released a single from his album " Instrumental Connection 1 (Left Hand Seizure" entitled "Laid Back". Maps (m2 for short) has a specialty for the signature sound of New York City hip-hop and this instrumental single embodies the sonics reverberating in the concrete jungle.
2.) Sadistik - Eden
Seattle-based emcee Sadistik has dropped the first single from his upcoming album. Produced by Boston, MA beatsmith Vague003, the single clocks in at under two minutes but contains Sadistik ripping the track with his customary alliterative rhyme schemes, wordplay, and imagery laced with dense poetics (think Robert Frost merged with Charles Bukowski). Over layered reversed synths, Sadistik goes in on the track with an impressive breathless flow.
3.) Pete Santos - Heroes
Released on February 15th, Pete Santos continues with his collaboration with Finnish-based Berat Cimili on "Heroes". Continuing to diversify his sound, Pete employs a children's choir to assist him for the hook. Cimili's upbeat stomp-handclap production provides Pete's vocals with the means to provide a rhymed look into "the love, trials and tribulations of being an up and coming music artist". "Heroes" is the third single from his album, "Fisherman", set for a March 22nd release.
4.) AyoK ft. Lingo & Diabolic - Nothin' But Heat
AyoK of North Attleboro, MA has just dropped the first single from his “2K19” mixtape released today. “Nothin’ But Heat” is an all-out wordplay assault with assists from Diabolic and Lingo, with the latter lacing the beat. With frequent appearances in the Grind Mode Cyphers, all three emcees come correct here with the lyrics and musical stylings that east coast hip-hop is known for.
