Music: Rah Zen – Upon The Apex

Boston-based beatmaker Rah Zen comes through with a stellar new released titled Upon The Apex. As one of the main figures in the music scene there, he has been able to craft a sound that is both soulful and incredibly eclectic, with quirky electronic samples and off-kilter rhythms.

The vocal sample at the start of the opening “Ritual” gives way to a guitar lead that is looped over vocals and a thumping beat. The percussion on tracks like “Godspeed” and “Ancestor’s Call” sound raw and almost tribal, with piercing, poignant production that just sounds so incredibly dope. The whole album is full of eclectic moments that are just fantastic. “Giants Arm” features a weird, synth-heavy beat with a stellar vocal feature from Dirty Merlin. The raw, almost devilish tone of “Transmissions” is hard-hitting and engaging, while the closing track “Magnetism” is soulful and beautiful in its melody. Overall, Upon The Apex is a fantastic album showcasing Rah Zen’s diversity and range as a producer.
