Elhae Got that Blue Dreams & White Lights

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.

Wrecking Crew and Associated Minds Bring 'The Heat' (American Language Remix)

Once in a while a track comes along with the force of a tornado and knocks ya down a few. This is that song and another great example of what happens for real When Giants Meet, in this track we got the Wrecking Crew consisting of Zilla Rocca, Curly Castro, Has-Lo(Mellow Music Group)  and UK Hip-Hop collective Associated Minds produced by PLO. I have already learned to expect nothing but GOOD music when someone from Three Dollar Pistol Music is involved and now finding out who Associated Minds is and what they are capable of... it's a must get. No need to write fluff, just listen below and you'll see for yourself. Giants universal indeed.

RepDom My Shalom

As with all of our travels I always have more than one post with photos. Already I miss the street vendor yelling to sell vegetables on the block, the coffee that tastes better when it's accompanied by family and the sweet breeze of DR. Relaxed and weather pleasing as ever, I have never experienced a cooler December in my entire life. It would be 11PM and we were chillin eating outside at Rico Hot Dogs with t-shirts on ahhhhh, try to do that here and you catch death! Our cousins who took us anywhere they could were as usual fantastic, we love you guys a ton!

Here are some random pieces of things I saw DR, Enjoy.
