Export Ghost – “i Promise” Feat. Marv Won

Published

on

Raw House LLC is the brainchild of beats gordy a dedicated music lover with a passion for bringing great music to life & a goal of changing as many lives for the better as possible. With a starting roster of four talented individuals beats gordy reached out & connected me with the music his team has created for the world to hear. Throughout the plethora of submissions I receive on a daily basis it’s grown harder to stand out to me but as I dug through the Raw House roster it soon became evident that there was something here.

With four different artists one thing that came apparent after listening through was that each has their own sound & each I can see bringing a separate element to the table. It’s a fantastic starting mix that is able to provide different audible experiences well still melding together as the conglomerate. I will also say that the professionalism in the approach from beats gordy also made a strong first impression. In a world of spamming links & an inbox of people essentially “demanding” I check them out it’s always a breath of fresh air when someone is genuinely reaching out. In fact for any artists who might be reading this & are thinking about submitting music not only to DetroitRap.com but any media outlet – a genuine introduction is going to yield much better results than shoving links down throats or tagging posts without any forewarning.

Raw House & team caught my attention & for good reason. Over the next week or so I will be shining a bit of light on each of the Raw House artists starting first with Export Ghost (1/2 of TrXpMXsk).

With “i Promise” Export Ghost brings along Detroit mainstay Marv Won who closes the record after a grand opening via Ghost in this boom bap feel good lyrical mastery. I replayed this one a good ten times in a row upon first hearing it & it’s been in rotation since. If you enjoy “i Promise” and are looking for more from Export Ghost you can also tune into “Monks” here: https://soundcloud.com/exportghost/monks

If Export Ghost has got you hitting replay like myself be sure to keep watch as I’ll be diving into the rest of the Raw House roster in the coming days.

"MASTER" which features JRGotTheHiTS & AiRiN ARTiSAN is one of my favorite tracks to hit my headphones in 2019 & it's only the start of what the team has in store.

Here’s some brand new flavor for your ears with an introduction into AGiLE SOCiETY – “MASTER“.  Though new to the forefront in terms of displaying their musical collaborations to the world, AGiLE SOCiETY has collaborated with the likes of Solange, Royce Da 5’9, & Tokyo Vanity from Love & Hip Hop. A collection of songwriters and producers who’ve come together as they call an “eclectic family” this first dosage into the world of their creations packs quite the opening punch. I had a chance to meet some of the team in the past week & was able to witness to creativity first hand. I’m really looking forward to 2019 & seeing it as the beginning of AGiLE SOCiETY’S venture into your listening devices. “MASTER” which features JRGotTheHiTS & AiRiN ARTiSAN is one of my favorite tracks to hit my headphones in 2019 & it’s only the start of what the team has in store.

Filthy Rockwell

Depending what time of year it is, unfortunately things fall thru the cracks when the staff here is getting things in order for the Underground Hip Hop Awards. This project is definitely one of those. Filthy is a Grammy Nominated, Gold, Platinum, and Double Platinum producer, songwriter, arranger, composer, music executive, A&R, and entrepreneur based in Detroit Michigan. Having worked with the great of old and new Filthy has a wide history of music to pull from.  Stepping from behind the scenes he creates a musical sign of the times with “Filthy America”

There is only one vocal performance on this project via the song Behold a Pale Horse which Underground Hip Hop Awards nominee for best artist delivers a lyrical onsluaght from start to finish, no breaks needed.

With that said this project is mostly a instrumental album with sound bites scattered thru out  album. Starting off with the Inauguration its fitting to hear the voice of the late Coleman Young making his vision clear for the city of Detroit. We the people which is the song featured in the visual in this post feels like a soulful time warp. Sit back and enjoy the ride. We will leave it to you to discover the rest.

Every soundbite, every vocal snippet was strategically chosen and meticulously placed on the track(s) in a way to craft a narrative, maximize effect and evoke thought/emotional provocation.

You wont be disappointed

Leaf Erikson “Canvas of Hope” Album Highlights

A Canvas of Hope artwork

A Canvas of Hope sounds like the title for a inspiring piece of art that you would find on a gallery wall. But this work of art created lyrically by Leaf Erikson and the help of some talented singers and emcees backed by a sonic landscape put together by Meftah and fine tuned by Eddie Logix is a work of art like none other.

The intro ’76 Ford LTD to this project sets the tone and lets you know there i something real about to take place while the outro Augustus leaves you with the feeling there is something yet to come. Leaf informed us that this first project was 1st in a 3 part series. 2 great bookends for something epic in between.

Stand out tracks on this project include Fine Tuning feat Jah Connery, Fore Closure feat Smoke and H20 feat the emotion filled voice of Blue Raspberry. We also felt like D.R.E.A.M. was a song for repeat as well.

We encourage you to give this project a moment of your time. It sounds and feels like a true Classic
