BContheTrack is an artist and rapper with an easy-going flow and a great ear for melody and well-rounded lyricism. “UP” provides the good vibes required to set you off in the right direction as the weekend and the summer slowly approach. What at first comes through as a laid-back bit of hip-hop, well performed and beautifully produced actually turns out to be a shining example of the beauty of reflective songwriting and the power of this when placed alongside a somewhat more classic, mellow rap vibe. Bill C, known as BContheTrack, grew up in South Central Los Angeles. This is why his beats combine street noises with studio sounds. BC has over twenty years of music experience ranging from Old School, R&B, Gospel, Trap, and Hip Hop. When asked what he loves most about making beats.
The style and swagger of that leading vocal is on point, the tone of voice, the confidence, the underlying message – the sound has rhythm and power and showcases a constantly evolving, ever capable lyricist and performer. The structure of the track pays tribute to that minimalist element in a way, there’s an abundance of creativity in terms of the layout – the arrangement of the lyrics, the verses, the hook – but for the most part, the whole thing has been very cleverly crafted so as to draw your focus to the flawless finish of it all and the strength and energy of those vocal parts.
The artist’s use of melody is minimal yet effective, it contrasts well with the varying energy of the rap flow. The outpouring of lyricism at certain points is mesmerizing, particularly when you consider how open and real the lines are. What’s more, nothing at all appears to be there purely for the sake of filling up the space. The thoughtful nature of the writing is consistently clear, and despite the mellow energy of the track, on the whole, it develops and grows in intensity and power through the smart arrangement of lines and effective utilization of musicality.
Production-wise the music is on point, creatively and professionally crafted and so well mixed. The whole thing allows you a real bit of insight as to who these creatives are and what was potentially the intended output of these songs – what was going through their minds, and where these particular moments of expression came from.
