South-coast MC Tay Devenny recently released a new E.P. entitled “Obulous”. He’s a young MC (18) but this is not his first release, and he shows maturity in his rhymes which lace some smoky, laid-back beats. The beats come courtesy of The Distance Ensemble a.k.a Bit1.
The release opens with a relaxing, wavy sound, overlaid with a male narrative. “Fallen” has an edgy sound to it:
As a bit of a contrast, “Reminiscing” takes you on a hazy journey through the sometimes frustrating process of lyric writing.
The tone picks up for “Run It” but maintains the laid-back vibe of the whole E.P. The track gives a springtime feeling.
“The Melody” talks about music: creating, promoting, publishing:
Wrapping the E.P. up is “LCN”, which features a glitchy beat, and heartfelt lyrics.
The whole E.P. is nice. A maturing MC, with a consistent vibe – the beats too. We’re looking forward to hearing more from Tay Devenny (who promises “more ish to come”). You can grab the E.P. for free from Tay’s Bandcamp. Don’t forget to check out his previous E.P. “Scriptures” too.
We’ll keep you updated on his work. Let us know your take on the E.P. in the comments.
