If you love hidden gem R&B artists who are extremely talented but work under the radar, then meet your new favorite artist, Heteroclites. With his incredible range and enchanting vocal theatrics, he has been creating beautiful music all while somehow avoiding the spotlight. With the release of his most recent single “Melancholy” The singer/songwriter is now making his way towards becoming your new favorite singer.

As an artist, Heteroclites remains lowkey. He releases music on Soundcloud occasionally and will interact with fans thru live streams on Instagram (@heteroclites). What makes him such a notable artist is his tremendous range, his unique songwriting abilities and the fact that he is able to take listeners on a wild ride with his voice without sounding like he’s doing the absolute most. He is extremely talented, but subtle, allowing his music to truly speak for itself.

Just recently, Heteroclites has released his new single “Melancholy” and the song is nothing short of pure magic and even though the song is entitled “Melancholy”, it is far from that. On the track, Heteroclites takes listeners on a journey both musically and emotionally by discussing the relatable topic of being stuck in a rut. The smooth vocals paired with the warm and cozy vibe of the track results in a very welcoming and thought provoking track that R&B fans are sure to love.

Our Favorite Lyrics: I live for a second/Got lost for a minute/Rethought it for a hour

GRXZZLY Shows Lyricism Isn’t Dead in the DMV With “GoldMxnd Freestyle” Visual

Who doesn’t love a good freestyle?

Recently DMV artist GRXZZLY has dropped his “GoldMxnd Freestyle” Visual which proves to hip hop fans that lyricism is still alive.

The visual begins with a recording of a phone call of someone explaining to GRXZZLY how the scene has become oversaturated with rappers who are producing a lot of less than great music and how unimpressive this music is. The person on the phone then tells GRXZZLY to give the people something serious to listen to, and with this freestyle that is exactly what he does. With this freestyle, GRXZZLY gives amazing delivery paired with witty punchlines that will resonate with true hip hop fans. GRXZZLY stated that “this is a representation of his penmanship and mindset as of right now. Some people claim that lyricism is dead in the DMV, well I disagree 100 %”

In this generation of new wave hip hop and “mumble rap”, some may say that lyricism has become outdated, obsolete and a non factor to this generation. G.O.D.S. music group has totally flipped the script on that theory by combining lyricism, knowledge, energy and relevance to create a unique sound that is making the spirit of old school hip hop relevant to this new school generation.

The group of young emcees have most recently reintroduced themselves to listeners by dropping their newest song “Bully Hour”. The song features G.O.D.S. members K.J. The Gawd, Breezo, R. Locko, Grio Arsn and Shel Capo as well as a guest appearance by Doon.
