Kohn x Steve Sxaks ‘Light at the End’ Album

Philly based MC/producer duo of Kohn and Steve Sxaks return with a diverse, generational fused project titled ‘Light At The End.’  The 11-track album features Reub Boy, BellaBlu, 3T3N, Biz Mighty, Joe White, and Marrissa Joy.

Sxaks shows off his impeccably mastered production skills while Kohn delivers quick-witted wordplay, classic storytelling, and at times hits you with ‘in your face’ lyrical bombs. “Wanna Ride” offers listeners a laid-back vibe of R&B blends mixed with modern cadences. However, don’t get lost in hypnosis as “Goldar” picks up the pace with distinct striking sounds that heighten Kohn’s Trap flow. “Pay Up” is a catchy track, one that can be heard blaring anthem style. With no co-sign needed Kohn is securing bags while he levels up.

The album continues to intensify with “Shrimp Scampi.” Kohn’s zany flow and raw wordplay are magnified over a multi-genre mosh pit of fervid soundscapes. In “Replay” Kohn describes how life epitomes the redundancies of Groundhog Day but switches up yet again in “Fried Okra.” Over classic meets latter-day tones, Kohn spews authentic and animated lyricism for a throwback vibe.

“Bar Crawl” is the action-packed big screen track of the album with three minutes of raw lyrical sirens setting off a state of suspense and hair-raising chills. Once again, the mood shifts in “Palm Trees.” The sounds of striking drums serve as the heart of the track and magnify Kohn’s simple message of being ahead of the game as a heavyweight while other’s pen game is featherweight.

The duo impresses the ladies in “Pad Thai” and offers plenty of play to get them in the mood, and with a smooth soulful vibe, they don’t miss a beat. “Turn Around” is a track about constantly feeling on edge from a misled relationship. Kohn embodies the all too familiar tale through innovative storytelling.

To finalize the album, and in an attempt to spread a message near and far, from childhood to adulthood, from rich and poor, from every color in the rainbow; Kohn delivers countless gems in “Light At The End” about being true to what you believe no matter what.

Cory M – Trap Betty

 

Upcoming artist Cory Marcus aka Cory M from Tulsa, Oklahoma has been doing his thing this year with delivering quality work to the masses. He’s been taking music seriously for this past year. He released his EP “Teenage Dreams” in May. Then, the most recent project The Complaint was just released on all digital platforms a few months ago. Now, He just released “Trap Betty”. A 6 Song EP with some sauce. This that music you should be vibing & listening to. He got 1 more project on the way this year. This joint “Trap Betty” embodies a trapped mind and how he’s trying to be free from his self. He’s an advocate for mental health especially in families (children and parents) to have a better relationship. He hopes to be able to incorporate and over time transition into speaking about mental health. I definitely think this is something important that more artists need to touch on. Nothing but good vibes when he has your ear. This project was a good listen from beginning to end. You can hear his growth as an artist especially from the last project. Raw & Authentic sauce.

SINN x Chill Beatz Discuss “Ryder Music” Volume 2

On October 4th, 25-year music vet SINN will release the 1st single off his forthcoming sophomore album “Ryder Music” volume 2. I had the chance to sit down with SINN and in-house mega-producer Chill Beatz to discuss both the single and album.

MJ:  You recently announced the news of the forthcoming release of your sophomore album of Ryder Music. As a vet in the industry, your music is a timeline of your life and shows your growth as an artist. In three words describe this album.

SINN: A musical journey…

“Riding season is almost over, time to heat up the winter with Ryder Music…Da Ryder King Sinn is parking the bike and sparking up the mic” -SINN

MJ: The relationship between artist and producer is crucial when curating timeless music. Talk about the chemistry between you and in-house mega-producer Chill Beatz.

Chill: We push each other to do things that we don’t’ think are possible. Every beat is like a blank canvas and SINN is the artist!  We are brothers first, so the rest is easy.

SINN: Chill nailed it, our chemistry comes from our love of music, and a brotherly bond we have beyond the music.

MJ: Without giving too much away, share a little with the fans on what they can expect from Ryder Music Vol 2. How would you describe the SINN fans will get from this album?

SINN: For this album, I took the fans on a cruise on their favorite ride down a freshly paved road and I wanted to be their tour guide down the Ryder Music highway…

MJ: Chill, let listeners know about the dynamics of this album from production’s standpoint.

Chill: This album stayed true to the ryder music concept. Sinn also wanted to give his fans something they may hear in the clubs, so it was fun adding an R&B/Pop mix to this concept.

MJ: Take us behind the scenes and talk about everything that went into putting this album together, from the thought process to the final product.

SINN: As a vet in the game people tend to forget what struggles and growth you must go through as a person and as an artist. I’ve always been told I approach everything in an unconventional fashion, so I decided to give the fans the same great recipe just prepared differently. The thought process was for the world to know “the name and know the difference.”

Chill: SINN didn’t say a lot during this process other than it’s time for them “to know the name and know the difference.” No one can get in that man’s creative head.

MJ:  Word is the album will be released teaser-style, with a new single every two weeks. Tell us a little about the debut single.

SINN: The debut single is called “Make it Home” featuring Rita. This is a song for everyone who leaves out the door and has one goal in their mind; to make it home safe back in the arms of the one they love.

MJ: If you had to choose two personal favorites off the album what would those records be, and why?

Chill: I don’t really have a favorite but “Make It Home” is a song I think all the fans and listeners can relate to.

SINN:  My two favorites are “No Matter What” and “That’s What They Do.” The theme in “No Matter What” focuses on loyalty and no matter how far I go up the ladder I’ll always be around for my team.  “That’s What They Do” describes how a mature and secure man can refuse temptations and be loyal to his one and only.

MJ:  As we wrap up, is there anything else you would like to mention about Ryder Music Volume 2?

SINN: I feel this is my best work to date, the most monumental.

Chill: Buckle Up!
