NO SKIPS: MOLTEN BREATH (Album) - ZEJI

When it comes to music, contrary to what most may say, progression is actually not always a necessity. 💯 Sometimes it comes down to one sticking to what they know best and simply fine-tuning and refining their approach to its most spotless state yet. 💎 This further enhances their most defining aspects and qualities to better create the most appealing, gripping, and all-around perfect tracks. 🔊✨ And in the case of Molten Breath from the first time i listened to it weeks ago, i knew it was not a project that was concerned with saturating itself in the unknown (with the exception of Von Ded Nov) but more so with Zeji doing what he has already been doing, just at a much higher level. 📈 With a primer focus on production this time around, Zeji brought to the forefront some of the most forward-thinking and telling instrumentals he could produce and uniquely morphed it all into a project that consists of the most raucous, sporadic, yet ideally appealing beats of the entire year. 🥁 This mashed together with a number of sentimental lyrical tones and an expert sense of flow, he went on to create some of the most infectious verses in his catalog yet. 🦠 The whole album boasts numerous vocal chops, piercing drums, and out-of-the-box noises that are as chaotic and hectic as you might expect, and while not a single song sounds similar to anything else on the project, they all somehow fit with one another and piece together to create a commendable body of work. It’s just unbridled heat, nothing too complicated, pure molten breath at it’s hottest and that’s what it makes it so fun to listen to. 🔥🐉 As for favorites, there are quite a few notable ones that i could go into detail on, but i think the most impressive one is the final track, “Morticate” which has a certain indefinable quality about it that just exudes pure appeal and nostalgia alike, with its rapidly progressing percussion backing up a solemnly sung sample that is richly addictive and gripping listen after listen. 🌟
