http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZrBiEJ8_Q_QThe ATL artist Elhae is back and wants to share a story with us about where he came from, doubts presented to him and wishes. I always look forward to some new music from the emcee and this video keeps it simple and well presented. This dude is going nowhere but up... watch.
The highly anticipated return of Elhae has finally arrived with 'The Letters', another journey deeper into the mind which brings questions and wonders of relationships also overall life. A big yet non-damaging difference to note is that he has other producers in this project, a different direction as his usual self produced previous albums but it still feels like an Elhae album. I've always thought he has found a personal musical niche for himself and the latest project serves as another gem in the crown (Still Got It) belonging to his future, an enjoyment to hear thru headphones, in your car or by yourself in the house bumming around... it somehow always adapts to your environment. One of the differences and a reason why I like his music is that his lyrics don't feel cocky or always self-boasting, he gives you an open door (sounds honest) to what his life is and still sounds great. From piano keys lightly paving the song to soulful harmonies play throughout, even certain songs that will catch you vibing out summertime style once they come on, the album feels organic and a great music experience. 'The Letters' short and sweet at 10 tracks with 1 interlude doesn't over stay it's welcome and keeps Elhae fresh on the ear waiting for more. In the end rack it up to another fantastic album that will be on constant rotation on my iPhone and should be in yours as well, straight up good music always needs a good home and I suggest you pick this one up. I still can't believe good music like this is given away daily for free... totally legit sounds with good production for the music fans is at a good high right now.
[vimeo]http://vimeo.com/28922072[/vimeo]Elhae is coming back with "XXI" on September 18, 2011, here is a trailer for his upcoming project which I am definetly excited to see where it goes. If you remember me talking about his "Blue Dreams & White Lights" album (fantastic), you know I dig the sound and see this ATL rising Giant going to great places if he keeps it up. Check out the trailer and also his new single "Wherever we Go" below to get a taste of what's to come. "Yeah we just tryin to make it, wherever that we go."
The ATL artist Elhae is back with another full album release titled "Blue Dreams & White Lights" and the second time around is much much better. I am truly loving how his whole sound is coming up and gives his own electro flavor to the formula of Hip-Hop and soul, it shows the versatility in the artists' sound while totally enwrapping our ears. There is a certain soulful musical void to be filled and while going thru the album I couldn't help but think that Elhae could appeal to many folks that go the route of 'Ye, Cudi, N.E.R.D. and the few others that have that edge above just having a spacy electronic sound. He presents himself in different forms, be it about love (Gave You All) or shrugging off the hate and acknowledging the wrong (The Apology) it all comes off great and makes you want more than 34 minutes of album. Touches on relationships with others and himself with the issues dealt by the music industry, also the show and prove ideal by which many of us go by, Elhae comes off shining like the Dog Star in dark empty space full of dullness.
He flips from singing to rhyming and back so you would think either the rapping or singing would come off tired or try-hard, but it doesn't and comes off as another plus for the artist. There are songs that I kept just repeating over and over again (A Day Behind, Gave You All, Where To Be, Team Zero) and just could not help but get a good idea for a specific song (shhh...) and would like to explore it visually. One thing is to have a good song but I can get a scene playing in my head I immediately fall for that track. The first album "Seventh Fall" was dope, and it just got better this time around. I like where this artist is headed and think there will be nothing but good coming out of his hard work being put in. ATL always has room for another dope artist but Elhae should already have his room spaced out nicely... another one for the Giant books.
Not too long ago I posted a track by ATL artist J. Nolan, being impressed with the emcee's flow feel I was waiting on this album to drop. It has been released with great effort and is one of those tapes that you can zone out to or head nod to the end. It has a mostly jazzy Hip-Hop feel to it while weaving tales around the lush sounds and there are some tracks that go hard on some beats. A good amount of producer talent is on this album, also has the dope track 'Corazon' by Jersey's Yung B Da Producer. Peep the album and buy at your price, go and support good music my Giants!
