“Feel Me” by “BContheTrack ft Beaux” brings the smooth and mellow vibes of hip-hop and tops them off with a characterful vocal tone and a flow that represents the track’s sentiments and style really well. The depth of the leading voice, the lyricism, and the performance styles all create a striking contrast with the softness and ambiance of the musical backdrop.
“Feel Me” sounds great, simply put – nostalgic in all the best ways, creatively fresh yet solid in its representation of the raw energy and passion of the hip hop world. On top of all of this, the sound is ultimately very real. “Feel Me” Pretend duo state that they have presented the recording in the most natural way possible, and this really comes through as you listen. It feels like a live show, right there in the room with you – you get the detail and intricacy of the music, but much more than this, you can hear the genuine passion and energy of the performances, and this is what lifts music to new heights and pushes it across invisible boundaries.
The song has something of an awesome vibe to it, though the instrumentation seems to be much more closely connected with a somewhat modern production style. The lyrics teeter between the painful truth and the poetic thought process, the latter half of the track really taking on those inner thoughts and that reflective writing style – appearing more as a general string of statements than something specific and detailed. Essentially, welcoming the audience and their own experiences into the moment.
Authenticity is everything the hip hop genre ever looked to represent. An alternative to the squeaky clean, overproduced world of mainstream rap. A place you can visit again and again in times of uncertainty. Somewhere free from judgment and glowing with ideas and emotion and artistry. As if the song title and the artist’s name alone didn’t indicate that the experience ahead of you would bring a sense of escapism and possibility, the music and performances warmly reiterate this truth.
