Music: Ahwlee – dead[ist]

LA-based beat maestro Ahwlee has released a brand new EP titled dead[ist]. As one half of B. Cool-Aid (with Pink Siifu) as well as releasing some fantastic projects in the past, it’s always good seeing him come through with another thumping project.

It’s non stop boom-bap madness throughout the entire project. From the thumping opener “thetrial.” with its infectious percussion and heavy beat to the soulful and beautifully sampled closer “ye.”, Awhlee is able to find his groove brilliantly. The more soulful cuts such as “oldtownb” are balanced with more hard-hitting cuts such as “spurs*|luckwldhaveit” and the gritty “queasy.” Overall, Ahwlee has released absolute head once again, which is not surprising in the slightest, but it’s still great hearing him tear shit up on record.

Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by. I run In Search Of Media with the aim of giving a platform to independent beatmakers, rappers and talented musicians. I also hope to make this a home for music discovery, interesting film analysis, exhibition reviews and other interesting content for all of you guys to dive in to. I hope to start a podcast and documentary-style project soon. If you're looking to be a part of this creative project, please go to the contact page and drop me an email, or connect via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. I also write for 'Music Is My Sanctuary.' Thanks šŸ™
