“MENACE” is the brand new track from artists HSR HIRO ft. HSR FINESSE x HSR Hell boy. Right from the offset, fans of old-school hip-hop are likely to get a great sense of nostalgia from this track, as well as something brand new to be swept away by.
The featured vocal on the whole track has an impressive strength and style to it that is perfectly in keeping with the sort of mood and melody expressed throughout. You get that awesome vibe in your mind straight away, it stays with you, the mellow yet bouncy vibe of the music behind the vocals helps hold it there, and overall there is a cool and relaxed ambiance to the whole thing. It works really well as a single. Simple and effective, with an optimistic and generally positive vibe – always something we need more of in the world.
Not just a great track, but one of those accompanying visual streams that is more of a short movie than a music video. Really impressive; sounds great, feels powerful and optimistic, energetic, yet soft and sensitive in many ways – easy to feel involved in, and pretty compelling on the whole.
On top of it all, the rap vocal has this thoroughly chilled out sound to it, a mood which passes on to you as you listen; it’s effective, it’s music doing what it should, flowing freely to make you feel good when you listen. Rather than shouting or screaming to get your attention, this leading vocal speaks with a calm sort of confidence – a certainty that is easy to listen to and take on-board. It makes it all very believable, and therefore pretty easy to trust and relax to.
That hook as well, it comes out regularly enough to really leave a lasting impression. The vocal performance is powerful and smooth, it builds a good contrast with the verse vocal, so the whole track feels like an episode or a story, with its various ups and downs, and never too repetitive or tiresome.
His creativity has that wonderful freedom to it that we always talk about. Confined by nothing, defined by no genre or otherwise musical walls. As mentioned – the possibilities are endless. He’s definitely someone to check out – particularly if you’re an artist, lyricist, or singer, looking for fresh, inventive, and powerful sounding beats. Even just those of you who are avid music lovers. Press play and immerse yourself in the sound. Escape from your reality for a while. Well worth your time.
