We recently had the pleasure of getting to know the venomous on-the-rise Rap sensation, Static Spaz.
The Hip Hop/Rap genre as a whole is one that (especially in recent years with increased accessibility to self-record) can often feel uninspired and frustratingly tired due to the lack of variation, ambition, and innovation applied within the songwriting and production stage. It seems that every week we are introduced to the same regurgitated beat with the same lazy mumble-rap verses and auto-tune saturated hooks—- only to fizzle out into forgetfulness.
Static Spaz’s newest EP “Shock Therapy” lands a devastating blow to this terrible trend, and in the aftermath, sets an incredible new standard for all new coming Hip Hop/Rap-inspired artists.
Check out the FIRE new Single “Nature Boy”:
One of Static Spaz’s most distinguishing qualities as a rapper is his ability to spit venom that has the impact much like that of a celebrated slam poet. Each thoughtful lyrical phrasing and clever word jumbling carries a hidden punch and remarkable depth that is not often found in newer Rap releases.
While other notorious rappers are tasked with focusing the listener by removing all musical distraction with pure spoken word records to show off their genius; Static Spaz is able to effortlessly blend sophistication and flow with masterfully crafted sonic soundscapes. Add some infectious beats and brilliant song sequencing and structuring to the mix, and you have an irresistible fusion of catchy music oozing with substance.
Check out previous track “Chill Bill”:
“Shock Therapy”is one of those increasingly rare transcendent EPs that doesn’t abide by the typical genre limitations and standards. Regardless of your specific musical tastes, regardless of any bias or animosity that you may have against the Hip-Hop or Rap genres; the sheer uniqueness and thoughtfulness of Static Spaz’s newest EP will inspire and ignite applause and appreciation out of even the most reluctant listeners.
It’s pretty damn refreshing to hear somebody so incredibly versatile and talented behind the mic. Shying away from the typical clichés of both of the genres that he borrows inspiration from, Static Spaz has a remarkably unique style and sound which he maintains throughout the EP. While Static Spaz certainly pays homage to the great rap standards; he frequently veers away the genre’s increasingly tired tendencies, making the listening experience feel entirely new and unpredictable.
