“Detroit Monster” by The Davis Way

Published

By

In a highly competitive market like Detroit, you know if you even dip your toe in the pool of music you better be ready to swim. Guided by a slightly different approach than normal, frequent listeners of The Davis Way will immediately grasp he has “the right gear ready” to navigate the water.
His latest offering, “Detroit Monster”, is a glimpse into the world he describes as “cinematic hip hop”. The instrumental project blends the natural elements of that genre, accompanied by operatic themes and haunting vocals. Basically, The Davis Way serves as the maestro on this well-crafted journey.
The album opens with “Foreseen”, representing not only changes in his own music but the lack of attention some of his peers gave to the actual BUSINESS of music. That same business could potentially see any of these tracks garner attention for sync licensing. The mood continues on “Veil Of Tears”, a track inspired directly by a conversation via DM he had with someone about record labels being monsters. In a plot twist, the DM he received could also be perceived as a “monster”.
With additional titles such as the “Bully With The Beats”, the album title track (Detroit Monster), and “Breaking Hearts & Faces”, you can pretty much tell The Davis Way isn’t concerned with the “so-called monster” because he feels “we have the knowledge” to prevail over negativity. “Global Dominance” would be the perfect background music for the rise and “Resurgence” of independent artists not only making great music but empowering themselves through education of the business.
“Detroit Monster” is more than a cinema. It’s a wake-up call for producers to expand the horizon and continue to build their craft.
