Detroit music legend Waajeed has come through with a brand new EP titled Hocus Pocus. His rich discography includes projects like From The Dirt and Ten Toes Down EP, so hearing new music from the talented artist is always anticipated, and as per usual, I’m impressed by the rich, textured electronic rhythms and compositions he is able to create.
From the first track “Abracadabra,” there is a sense of mysticism. Rhythmic percussion lead the groove of the track, with lavish horns providing a jazzy soundscape that adds a rich and introspective tone to the track. The bass-heavy beat is infectious, as with the other tracks on the project. “Lotta Bounce” has… a lot of bounce to it, literally. The bass-heavy composition is upbeat and fun. “Let Your Love” is more of a dance-heavy track, with groovy chopped vocal samples, synths and an infectious beat. “32oz” is more percussion-heavy track with a fast-paced rhythm that concludes the short but sweet 4-track EP brilliantly. Waajeed never disappoints on record, and Hocus Pocus is another testament to his creativity and all-around brilliance.
