BigHomie Chosen starts off with a heavy dose of simplicity on his new single Envy, serving as exposure to his capabilities as a composer and, more significantly, as an artist in a humble but shockingly aggressive style.
“BigHomie Chosen” is a Montgomery, Alabama-based self-taught independent artist. He makes songs with an Ambient Soundscape, Southern Base with a Global Sound, Inspiring Vibe and Energy, and accessible content, among many other things, in addition to Hip-hop/Rap/RnB. Envy is the title of his most recent track.
Envy whizzes by in two and forty-five short minutes, leaving you wondering whether you blinked and missed it. The mix itself is massive, with vast slabs of sound compressed such that everything feels louder than everything else, and there’s a lovely sense of swirling excess to the whole thing, lending an almost psychedelic flavor to the listening experience.
The soundtrack Envy shines brilliantly for its now-familiar warmth as well as the special touches that provide color and personality. Amid this is the artist’s own variety and thematically fascinating performance — the moments vary and change, there’s a back and forth balance at work. There’s a complex tale to follow.
There’s a superb finish to the whole thing. It streams through with equal parts dynamic and instant familiarity – the hook sets in, as does the artist’s style, and artistically there’s a fair amount to admire, which distinguishes this from the majority of recent releases.
Lightness is a massive part of that; things may be peppy without falling heavy or pushing for speedy tempos, and BigHomie Chosen is a performer who expertly pays attention to that.
