Just when I’m positive, I mean absolutely sure that the next 10 submissions I’m going to listen to are going to sound like the last 100; that is, rips of Future, Travis Scott and Migos, someone comes along and gives me hope for creative music. Today it’s Xeno Carr and Zamorano and their ROYGBiV project. First of all, just the fact that the title is not a reference to ballin’, sippin’, or gettin’ money, kept me from sighing into a slump. ROYGBiV is an acronym common used to describe the colors that make up a rainbow; Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet. Not that surprisingly each tracks artwork features a different color. However, surprisingly, each track has a completely different flavor and is awesomely unique. Although it’s un-polished, containing rough vocal production on many of the tracks, each song kept me guessing. Not a single track led me to feel bored by repetitive flows. If I had to liken them to 1 artist it would be Allan Kingdom, mixed with… maybe… Afroman, but there’s really just too much hear to generalize. Seriously give this a listen, it saved my day of dull submissions. Thanks Xeno and Zamorano!
