Sometimes recognizing “Starr” quality can be a daunting task, however with Alexis Allon you’ll start feeling the sky shine quite instantly as you press play on her brand new EP “Closer“. The Titan Records artist brandishes a powerful voice that carries its weight across a short but extremely fulfilling four record dosage that paints a vivid picture of Alexis’s capabilities.

Kicking off with one of my favorite records in the last few months is the single “Starr”  which has an infectious chorus that easily traps itself inside the space between your ears. Not only does the singing pull you in but Alexis Allon isn’t to be taken lightly on the microphone either. She squeezes in a fair amount of effective bars across “Closer“.

Keep Em” is a great example of those bars – in a more mellow record packed with jazzy vibes. “One thing that should be blatant is I’m here to make a statement‘… well statement made Alexis! The remainder of the EP carries forth the first half’s momentum. “Devotion” & the title track “Closer” are two short but sweet offerings that expand on the strengths of those before.

In closing “Closer” is a demonstrative effort that showcases Alexis Allon as a multi-talented artist who stands just as strong on her own as she does lending her vocal abilities amongst features such as her previous collaborations with Detroit legendary emcee Supa Emcee. The only thing you can ask for after finishing the EP is for more music, & without a doubt, “Closer” will stay in my rotation until that day comes.

Nametag Alexander – “Work. Win. Repeat.” The EP

Published

“Nametag Alexander follows up his most recent effort Hello Victory, with “Work. Win. Repeat.” The EP. The body of work was influenced by the mantra single of the same title from 2019, originally produced by Black Bethoven, featuring Junii. With duration being only 18 minutes, and change, ‘Tag manages to display just enough artistic vulnerability on tracks like “Dusk” and “Soul Speak”, while still maintaining his known lyric bravado on “Grands.” The “just stay focused” mentality is what makes the EP relatable, and there’s a clear intent to inspire based on the Les Brown clips throughout a few of the songs. Overall, Nametag properly delivers with this EP as “Work. Win. Repeat.” defines continuous self improvement, opposed to winning solely to impress others.”

A Return From Hiatus, Detroit Emcee Miz Korona Delivers "The Virus" EP

It has been said that inspiration can be found in the strangest of places sometimes and for one Detroit emcee that proves no truer than now. COVID-19 aka Coronavirus, has effected billions on a massive scale as humanity faces one of its most daunting tests to date. At first weary of the situation, Miz Korona was hesitant, however the encouragement of her peers has driven a return for the aptly named emcee.

A six song burst of new music titled “The Virus” has the legendary bar slinger back at it like she never left, as she takes us on a journey just shy of sixteen minutes that never peels back. By the end of the her return she is making damn sure we “Respect The Name“, the standout track amongst fierce company before she has us questioning if “45” is going to let us stay alive.

For a spur of the moment comeback, “The Virus” proves Miz Korona can disappear for a few years and still come back with a batch of pure quality like it was nothing. Thankfully, her peers have pushed for the timely return as we all experience this pandemic together and the new EP is a thoroughly enjoyable record perfect for your quarantine playlist.

On top of an outstanding showing from Miz Korona, the production & features here pack a powerful roster including Chanes, Mark Cooper, Marv WonDJ Static, King Gordy, LaShaun Phoenix, Maestro and Neco Redd.
