Daraja drops the last Visual Installments from his highly-anticipated classic “Art Music – Daraja Hakizimana” released on My Block Recordz/iHipHop Distribution.
In Montauk Directed by Jeremy Gladstone and That Moment Directed by Daraja Hakizimana.
Simple, good, old-fashioned, horse-sensed, musical R&B structure plus foreplay-oriented lyrics, sweet, beautiful melodies and Geno Williams’ laid-back, trademark vocals are what this album is all about. Satisfaction guaranteed by R&B songs like So Good and Remember Falling in Love or the Hiphop influenced I Want You , Go AHead and Go Ahead (Pt.2), which are great choices for chill-downs. Also plain yet sweet and beautiful are the keyboard sounds in the album. What about the rest?
I was very excited about listening to this last offering by Club 803, entitled “Cloud 9”, after reviewing their 2009 “The Addiction” album. That album had authentic ‘soul’ feel and a groundbreaking attitude that gave it a special sonic aura not to be found in modern R&B orientated releases. You may find better sung or better produced neo-soul albums than “The Addiction”, but you will be hard pressed to find as much creative spark contained within beats and vocal deliveries than the aforementioned album. This all led to one thing obviously. Club 803 created a ground-breaking precedent and elevated my expectations to an extremely high level with each passing moment.
Daraja Hakizimana and The My Block Recordz family has been putting it down, laying beats, features, and dropping classic projects since 2000. So we congratulate Daraja for all his contributions and endless work in this new millennium music industry………… #MBR #ClassofForever #congratulationDaraja
These young brothers from Houston, Texas will make a mark with the their 2nd project on My Block Recordz, Club 803 – Cloud 9. Their style is unique and very smooth. The whole project is dope and jamming. If you love H-Town, Jodeci, Jagged Edge, Dru Hill, or Ideal, this is totally another classic to add to the collection.
