In times when digitalization of music is finding its foothold in Nigeria, with the emergence of young energetic creatives feeling in gaps left by fading veterans who are fast losing influence, the regular soul, trippy music is now the order of the day, Alte getting sidelined with its inability to produce an A-list act with few breaking into the market altering there style of music we have Tarian who sticks to doing what he does best, making classics out normal vibes, a risky yet rewarding approach to music. Though young Tarian’s music is not what you rush, you have to let it sink in before you get to enjoy it. With budding expectations on his young shoulders Tarian released his debut extend playlist on the first of June, with much expectations, after releasing the lead track of the project Pala Pala two months before the main release fans don’t really know what to expect. According to a close source the young artiste said “music is not just about some few verses, or yeah yeah jokingly imitating Nigerian legend Wizkid, it goes beyond that, it’s a water of life and a mirror which reflects our state of mind, so I want my fans to have a taste  of what I feel, and what I see” these exact were stamped boldly on the seven track project.

The project tagged Afroclassic showed Tarian in two light, the carefree optimist who won’t tolerate nonsense on Pala Pala and a desperate lover on Feelings and Gimme love, before ushering in the bigger version of himself who takes things slow equipped with experience of old age, grey hair a symbol of wisdom is testament on Jeje, then giving us a classic love ode with who said, before speaking out his mind out loud telling bad energy to stay faraway in the guise of dancing and vibing on Ijo before  closing all accounts with Follow you.

Though no protect is 10/10 because flaws are inevitable we rate the body of work 7.5/10

“I Am Laycon (The Original Soundtrack)” by Laycon is out

Published

on

Fierce Nation Conny Sir, Laycon joins the league of artistes who put out two albums in a single calendar year with the release of the soundtrack album to his reality TV show which airs on ShowMax—I Am Laycon.

With I Am Laycon, Laycon shows a more reflective side of himself over refined rap lyrics, the braggadocious intro “Filthy” and the third song “Monrovia Hf-531” testifies to that; unlike his debut album, “…Shall We Begin”, which had more upbeat and fast paced tracks, “I Am Laycon” yields more to the mellow midtempo trap-soul side of music but still shows Laycon’s ability to make commercial club records like he did “Underrate” and “B. B. W” exemplifying the Afrorap genre tag he claims to perform.

Finito is the primary record producer on Laycon’s sophomore album just like he was on the first. Speaking on this album, Laycon writes: “The #IALbyLaycon project is a compilation of songs I recorded the moment I came out of the BBNaija house last year. It has been a hectic, fun, challenging, fulfilling, life changing 12 months and what better way to celebrate with my iCONs.”

I Am Laycon comprises 13 different tracks over a 29-minute playtime. Although majorly moody, conveying somber reflection on his journey thus far, relationship issues, career and lifestyle accomplishments, Laycon also gives room for bouncy records to flourish.

Azanti releases self-titled EP, “Azanti”

Published

on

After the successful roll-out and positive reception to 2020’s “YP & Azanti, Vol. 1” with Psycho YP, Azanti is finally ready to spread his tentacles and explore, this he does well in the form of the self-titled debut solo EP—Azanti.

With Azanti, we get to hear and experience Azanti in full form over bouncy Lo-Fi productions expressing his feelings and how he is ready to risk it all for his lover on “Dive” but how location and time might be an hindrance on “Time Difference”. On his first project, Azanti does it all, no features, going with the moody R&B/Soul vibes over mid to slow tempo paced song.

Not all tracks conform to the R&B/Soul tag by the way, Azanti made sure to fill his EP with a variety of other genres, on “Underwater”, there is Dancehall, Pop in the case of “Time Difference”, Afrobeat on the loose track—”Sunmoni” but one thing Azanti clarified (if there was any doubt at all) is his ability to dictate the pace, mood and overall ambience on individual tracks without the necessary help of his fellow Apex Village artistes or anybody at that.

When Azanti is not setting the tone vocally, he is busy flexing his sound engineering skills like he did on “Necessary” and Time Difference”. An impressive debut EP I must say.

Tracklist for “Azanti”.
