Concert Review: Medasin

Seeing a live performance is a great experience, but when every act is the same a listener is left with not much to say about the acts. I attended a show at the Westcott Theater where Medasin was the headlining act, the openers gave me something to talk about it. The first 3 performances form H0RCH, Weiss Wersa, and HICK3Y were all playing a collective of Trap, Dubstep, and other EDM music styles that didn’t leave much room for personality or uniqueness in their performance or sound. A problem in modern music that I see every day, what makes these few people different from everyone else playing the same material? What makes a record label or listener like me view these acts as something people are interested in listening to or even worth signing? The answer is nothing and while H0RCH seemed to have some sort of following, he still did not differ as much from the other three, even

Deep Purple

Deep Purple is a rock band from England formed in 1968 who went on to be pioneers in the hard rock and heavy metal movement in the early 1970’s and one of the most influential bands of all time. Planned to be a supergroup of musicians who could come and go as they please, Chris Curtis used networking to find musicians who were willing to be apart of this. Curtis, formerly of The Searchers, recruited Jon Lord, Nick Simper, Carlo Little, and most notably Ritchie Blackmore. Blackmore was known for his studio work with other groups, such as the southern rock act The Outlaws. The Group would switch out musicians until early 1968 when Ian Price and Rod Evans joined the group solidifying the lineup and removing Curtis. The line up would consist of Jon Lord on the organ, Ian Price on drums, Rod Evans on vocals, Nick Simper on bass, and Ritchie Blackmore on guitar. The band’s’ debut album

Mashup Review… Not Good Releases

So a handful of artists and albums are gonna be mentioned here and none of which are really good projects. First of is a mediocre to decent project from Metro Boomin, Not All Heroes Wear Capes… HOW THE FUCK IS THE ONLY ARTIST THAT CAN ACTUALLY PERFORM WELL ON THIS TAPE 21 SAVAGE!?!?!?! What the hell Travis Scott, Gucci Mane, and while I’m not a huge fan Young Thug… how do you flop on this record? Metro Boomin delivers solid production but a majority of the features really suck on this project and Kodak Black sounds the worst anyone has ever heard him on a track. Seriously, this is just upsetting. Wifisfuneral’s new 4 track project is also forgettable and he really brings nothing to the table here. XXL Freshman my ass, you should’ve given it to Shakewell since he at least delivered a singular good track. I don’t see Wifisfuneral making it any bigger than he already is. Takeoff delivered
