Truly immersive and creating a captivating soundscape, Lexxicon is an artist that refuses to be limited to one style. Showcasing his Bashment, Dancehall, Tropical R&B and Grime influences, “Bashment SZN” is the definition of cool.
A musician with layers of personality buried within his soul, the intense energy within the first single from ‘Bashment SZN’ is out of this world. Titled ‘Pon Di Floor’ – this is the type of track that makes listeners be even more excited for when the clubs re-open. Can you imagine this dropping when you’re on the floor?!
Talking about the EP, Lexxicon mentions, “As a dancehall music lover, I always wanted to create a small project that really reflected those that I looked up to and this EP is that project. You won’t be able to listen without moving, grooving and wishing you could catch a bubble.”
“Pon Di Floor” is the perfect first track from the forthcoming EP, and gives insight to an incredible release ahead.
Cloudy Clouds releases his debut album, ‘Imprisoned in a Daydream’. A collection of songs filled with nostalgia and an instant ‘classic’ feel to it’s soundscape, this is a statement for the UK’s ever-growing hip-hop scene. Claudio Elliston aka Cloudy Clouds draws inspiration from artists such as Eminem and Sha Stimuli, but always brings his own individuality to the table. An artist that’s not afraid to beat around the bush, Cloudy Clouds’ iconic aspects include British humour, emotive lyricism and personal songwriting.
‘Imprisoned in a Daydream’ begins with a subtle American twang dialogue before venturing into the unknown. A hazy beginning that lingers in your mind for days, and as Claudio states.. ‘I don’t want to leave this dream ever.’ As for the next single, ‘Struggle Rappers Anthem’ isn’t for the faint hearted. Straight to the point about wanting more exposure with his distinctive songwriting, this grime-influenced number is bathed in hard-hitting rhythms. Bringing a strong flavour of the sound of rap in the noughties, ‘Calling Round’ blends elegant piano lines with creative vocals
‘Hear It’ is a collaboration straight from the heart. Featuring rapper Aïda, the lyrics are sharp and fuelled with hook-lines. While the instrumentation is mellow and easy-listening, the chaotic vocals on top are innovative.
‘Wavy’ is a thought-provoking, relatable number, while ‘Freewriting’ features an iconic piano line that nudges early Eminem vibes. ‘Dirty Secrets’ then enters with enchanting vocals, and turns into an experimental hip-hop wonder.
An album that thinks outside the box, most of the release still pays ode to Cloudy Clouds’ influences. Though with ‘My Environment,’ Cloudy Clouds is simply in his natural habitat. Rhyming on command and ambitious piano lines, this number flows like water from a stream.
‘Pillow Talk’ feels like a subtle album feeler on the release. At just under 2 minutes long, the backing vocals are simply bewitching. ‘One Night’ is the most commercial track on the record, and features a collaboration straight from the heavens. Firahs and Lucci Rich add their own flavour to this established anthem. ‘Wrote You a Love Song’ is infused with mainstream pop sensibilities.
Arguably Cloudy Clouds’ most powerful track, ‘Your Future Daughter’ deals with truthful dialogue on the UK’s drug laws. Armed with British commentary and unique views, it’s the haunting backing vocals that you’ll be singing along to. ‘Maybe Tomorrow Then’ tells the story of feeling unmotivated, and always remembering that you can just get things done tomorrow.
Describing the album in one word, ‘Priceless’ rounds off a release with purity and charisma. Cloudy Clouds is an artist filled with character – and the thoughtful, carefully-constructed tunes on this record deserve to be listened to.
