@TheBrandedSwordsman If I had to give a description of the music, I’d say it’s certainly very expressive. Like, raw human emotion translated directly through an instrument, which is probably an adequate description of music in general but somehow seems particularly apt here. As for you homage, I think you nailed it, man!

@Jimmer-jammer Here's a bit of different music for you. Hip hop this time. This guy's music might appeal to you as it generally invokes positivism and isn't so much of the typical gangsta s*it. But, yeah this is probably an unusual choice for a first recommendation as it features the Wu Tang clan who are generally more hardcore hip hop than Logic, but he, like myself, is obviously a big fan of theirs to have them featured on his track and I think the song in general works quite well. Logic's verse is first and if you are interested in hearing one of his albums in it's entirety I have posted a link to his most recent work below that.

Kind regards!

@TheBrandedSwordsman Thanks! I’m familiar with Logic and Wu Tang. All very talented. I’ll throw a recommendation in this vein your way for once. Actually not sure what this guy is up to anymore but I always thought he was incredibly talented. No slouch on the trumpet either.

@Jimmer-jammer I enjoyed the Mitchmatic song, so, thanks for that - I would like to hear his trumpet playing specifically on another track - if you can recommend? I didn't notice any trumpet playing in that one but maybe I just missed it. Anyway, glad you are already familiar with those two. I really liked their collaborative track.

Edit: I think Mitchmatic had a good flow to the delivery of his lyrics, also, wondering like you what has happened to him and hopefully he wasn't involved in any Tupac Shakur-type situations, considering the information about that rapper that has surfaced recently.

@TheBrandedSwordsman So yeah, there’s no trumpet in the shared tune that I’m aware of, just from when I knew him, I can say that he was pretty great at it. I did a bit of looking and he’s now based in Quebec and goes by Mitch Davis. Here’s a song from his current form. Seems to have drifted from rap. He does all the instruments. Like I said, very talented guy.

@Jimmer-jammer Really liked the trumpet playing in that one. Like you said, really talented guy. Do you know if he has had much success outside of Canada? In what capacity did you know him?

@TheBrandedSwordsman I’m not sure on his success. Last I had heard he went down to the states on some adventure. I never knew Mitch all that well on a personal level but very much ran in the same circles. Alberta had a vibrant indie music scene in the early 00’s that we were both involved in and one of his good friends and collaborators was one of my best friends. That kind of thing.

Great conscious hip hop album, for those of you who prefer that sort of thing.

Very underrated hip hop album. The production is redolent of 1970s African American movies.

@Jimmer-jammer Besides Logic and Wu Tang and of course Mitch Davis back when he went by Mitchmatic who else do you like in the world of hip hop?

@TheBrandedSwordsman I don’t know the ins and outs of hip-hop as a genre so bear with me. I’ve always really enjoyed Swollen Members. They blew up huge here in Canada but don’t seem to be doing much as of late, presumably due to Prevail and Rob the Viking’s latest project, XL The Band, which I highly recommend checking out. I’ll post a song here. I also like Mighty Mystic and Classified. That’s probably good for now 😄

@Jimmer-jammer I'll check that out soon. Already saved an XL The Band album to my Spotify library so likely that'll get a listen tomorrow morning. Now here's one for you since you mentioned you were familiar with Wu Tang

@Jimmer-jammer Really like the Opus No 1 album by XL The Band - have you ever met any of them, like Mitch Davis? How did you hear about them? Do they have other albums or is that just the only one available on Spotify? Added them to my Hip Hop playlist.

Edit: I really like the female vocals on the album as well.
