BrokeBoi Ace - Single Review: Watered Down Dreamz

15 Sep 2021 // A review by Ben Ruegg

Oh man. I like this. From the get go with the sampled sounding guitar that is looped, and paired with the low down lo-fi kind of bass that rumbles, an old school type of drum sound but in half time, I feel this. It's a tip of the hat to a lot of incredible rap and hip-hop that has come through before.

I want to be honest here and say that there is a Kendrick Lamar type production here, even with the songwriting. It sounds absolutely incredible on my speakers. The cadence changes throughout, the added voice effects or mimicking someone else... its production that speaks for itself. It gives credibility to BrokeBoi Ace by showing how much he loves his craft.

The lyrics, the delivery of it and just the whole package... I am a big fan. This is easily one of the best hip-hop tracks I have heard come out from New Zealand. It will appeal to a lot of fans of those who like To Pimp A Butterfly from Kendrick. Honestly, that is the one reference I feel best describes how good this is, to my ears.

I look forward to hearing more of what BrokeBoi Ace has to offer. This track is stellar!

Sam V - Single/Video Review: Wired
10 Sep 2021 // by Ben Ruegg
Sam V's newest track Wired is another demonstration of how Sam keeps refining his sound. His vision has been getting more focused over time, based on his previous tracks like Cotton Candy which is actually a Y$O track, and Up Up Down.
InDuna - Single Review: Strange Fruits
08 Sep 2021 // by Ben Ruegg
InDuna's approach to Hip-Hop/Rap is something that listeners should pay attention to. It fits into what kind of feels as almost progressive in regards to the styles it compasses.
2Fly Ty - Single Review: That Track Feat. Dilz
03 Sep 2021 // by Ben Ruegg
2FLY TY's newest track entitled That Track is out now and features bars from Dilz. Both Ty and Dilz perform well here with TY’s flow being delivered on a rather flat way; not hyped and not like he’s not trying.
Goodlynx - Single/Video Review: Purple Blue
10 Aug 2021 // by Ben Ruegg
Starting Purple Blue off with a real honest vibe is the sound of a major 7th on a guitar. This interval sets a tone and mood that allows Goodlynx to be direct and honest with his audience.
Dilz - Single Review: Resurrection Feat. He Ra

Dilz is real. He is authentic.

26 Jun 2021 // by Ben Ruegg
I’m a big fan of Hip-Hop - I teach it at school to my students. Hip-Hop is about being real and it has an honest vibe to it.
