One of rap’s most enigmatic artists, Spark Master Tape, has finally returned with his third full-length project Silhouette Of A Sunkken City!

The mysteriously elusive artist raps from the perspective of a comic book villain type of character boasting a life of crime while using entirely pitched down vocals. After amassing a cult-like following in wake of his first two incredible mixtapes, he abruptly went rogue leaving fans anxiously awaiting any news. Now he’s finally returned and delivered some long-awaited new music. For those unfamiliar, check out our Spark Master Tape catch up guide

Spark Master Tape's ambitious third project Silhouette Of A Sunkken City is his longest to date spanning 22 tracks, and once again delivers his dark aesthetic and distinct sound. 

The booming production on Spark Master Tape’s music is equally as important to his sound as his rapping is, and this is very apparent on the new project. His sole producer and right-hand-man Paper Platoon delivers a cohesive sound throughout the album capturing both menacing and soulful moods with each track sounding different from the last. 

The 22 track album is filled with mostly short, spastic tracks with a couple interludes and multiple production focused tracks setting the stage for the project’s doomsday-like concept. The trappy hip-hop meets hard hitting, experimental electronic production brings sample-littered instrumentals with many beat switches contrasting dark aesthetic with uplifting samples and instrumentation making for a uniquely interesting listen.

Spark’s swaggy flows are gritty and compelling as he often teases short, frantic raps before going in hard on verses dropping in and out atop the frequent beat switches while rapping from the perspective of an ominous, sex & drug fueled rap persona.

While “Tenkkeys” is the project’s most complete and refined track, SOASC is entirely filled with must-hear songs including standout tracks “WAKKEBOI," "Livin' Lavish,” “Run Em Dry,” “Goin’ Robbin’” and “Swoup In The Whip” being just a handful of our favorites. Although this album bangs from start to finish, it’s not your typical listen… so gear up and get ready to be SWOUP’d.

After an extensive amount of promotional work and single releases such as "Drifting" ft. Tory Lanez and Chris Brown, G-Eazy has finally dropped off his sophomore album. When It’s Dark Out is a 17 track journey of an album that’s sure to reach the top of the charts across the globe. The album has G straying away from the light-hearted, braggadocio filled style we saw on These Things Happen and displays a far darker, more serious side.

By far and away, G-Eazy’s most haunting song is “Everything Will Be OK” ft. Kehlani. In fact, while making his rounds throwing private listening parties across the country, G-Eazy mentioned in Denver that “Everything Will Be OK” is the most important song he’s ever recorded. Upon listening it’s quickly understood why. On it G discusses traumatic events such as dealing with his mom’s sexuality and the tragic passing of his mom’s girlfriend- leaving goose bumps on your skin.

From beginning to end, When It's Dark Out is a cohesive project that reveals just how far G-Eazy has come. Exhibiting his far more mature sound and distinguished content, G-Eazy manages to not only dodge the infamous sophomore slump, but create his best album to date.

The London born, Seattle-based producer Tom Misch has most definitely carved his own path over the past few years as he’s released a nonstop stream of content online. While appealing to a variety of fan-bases, he’s one of the few artists that stays true to himself. Instead of releasing an album he’s chosen to release a collection of beats on the 12 track "Beat Tape 2."

Although a majority of the tracks have already been released, he's now bundled them all into one coherent project. He’s also made the entire project available to stream on Spotify and Soundcloud.

Tom’s shining signature guitar and drum beats will have you drifting into the best mood possible. His smoothly seductive beats behind laid-back original vocals from a cast of featured artists like Carmody, Jordan Rakei, and Alexa Harley among others is perfect for just about any situation or setting. Listen to the entire project below and grab a copy over on iTunes and just about everywhere else.
