Brent Faiyaz Is Criminally Underrated

I hate to say: ”I Told You” but Brent Faiyaz low key might be the next RnB king (I will still drop my infamous ”I Told You” regardless). Just to help you put a face on the man, let’s refer to himas”The Guy on Goldlink Crew’s Hook”.

Actually More Than A Hook

When ”Crew” dropped last year, it was a real tsunami in the streets (at least in my whip). For those who lived under a rock in 2017, I’m talking about the song named ”Crew” by Goldlink, Shy Glizzy & Brent Faiyaz laying a surgeon-like operation on the hook.

You know those type of songs you know are hits just from the first 20 seconds. It was like watching a Michael Jordan game 6 but on a song.

Faiyaz was the ”Assist God” by killing the high notes and while Goldlink and Shy Glizzy were supposed to be the Jordan & Pippen of the situation; we know damn well it didn’t go that way.

I mean, you know it’s real when you there’s a ”GoldLink-Crew (Extended Hook)” version on Youtube. Indeed, Brent Faiyaz made the song what it was but for some obscure reason, he went totally under the radar.

Blame it on my third-eye, the Illuminati or the fact that the song played about 400 times on my cell phone but something told me to check out Faiyaz’s music.

After hours and days jamming to this new hidden treasure, my subconscious was able to digest it and I can honestly say: God Bless Spotify!

Today, we will put you on to something you probably never heard before, a back to the basics but still current vibe and a hashtag mood type of artist you need to discover.

About The Artist

Brent is originally from Maryland but is now located in L.A. Moving to the city of angels was the beginning of his rags to riches story and he’s slowly but surely building traction around his music.

We know the term ”Soundcloud Rappers” but he’s definitely one of those rare gems you can find on this platform. With his first EP called A.M. Paradox, young Faiyaz was already making a name for himself.

Fast forward to 2017, he was featured in you know what song and it became the rap/rnb song of the year (at least in my opinion).

A Vintage Format In A New Wave

You know when we say: ”You Want That Old Thing Back”? In fact, you actually want a new and improved version of it (especially if it’s your ex-girlfriend).  Brent Faiyaz takes you back in time with his vocals. A mix of melancholy and the instrumentals to make you reconsider your life at times.

Do you know why I love to discover artists on their come up? Because they’re more relatable.  Most of his body of work gravitates around him trying to make it in the industry, difficult relationships and even hiding report cards from his mom as a younging (I mean we can all relate right).

Smooth vocals, instrumentals to give you the chill in a positive way and an artist that carefully takes his time with his process. Brent Faiyaz is also a part of a collective called Sonder; a movement bring something new and powerful sonically.

Definitely an artist to look out for in the following months.

Malefycia Is Restoring The Feeling, One Spooky Scream At A Time

Long are the days when I was cruising down the streets on October 31st either looking for candies to devour for 3 weeks straight or even as an adult looking for a popping club where I could tell people ”My costume is ME tonight”.

The truth is, I think Malefycia restored something that I thought was buried inside me. They reminded me that not only I liked Halloween but I just couldn’t find an alternative in my adult life to spark my curiosity on one side and get the thrill going on the other.

Malefycia been around for a minute but this year they’re trying something different…I mean different.

You’re familiar with the 7 sins in the bible don’t you? You’re aware of what a haunted house is supposed to be don’t you? Well, something in their team had the genius and actually vicious idea to combine these two things who might have nothing to with each other on the outside looking in but in this new adventure/haunted house experience; it all make sense!

their show called V7CE is cross theatre performance, cross the most scary thing you’ve ever seen. The show includes different scenes and interactive plays putting on the forefront the 7 sins from the bible.

What always stand out to me when it comes to Malefycia, is there raw and authentic attention to details.

Do yourself a favor and come immerse yourself in this universe and your inner child and your thrill-seeking inner adult have some fun.

The city has been quiet fashion wise over the years and as platform that mostly talked about fashion in its inception, we’ve felt it the most over here.

There would be sparks of hope here and there but besides Festival De Mode & Design, not a lot of things really stood out.

When I heard about ”The Glitch” it’s like I knew what it was about without nothing what it was about.

I mean good branding is good branding but it was more so who’s behind the good branding this time around. I had the chance to work with Myraï Lavoie in the past and one thing I can is : there’s a method to her madness.

Every artist has an eye and that eye is shaped by our views of the world and life experiences. Myraï had an interesting life.

One where being different is actually the move. One where if you don’t fit somewhere, you don’t try to get in the mold, you bend it.

For all the lack of support or misunderstand she got in Montreal, she found a place to be creative working or being in room with the likes of Paris Hilton & P. Diddy to name a few.

What she’s learned from coming out of her shell and experiencing the world she’s about the share it with us with her own fashion called ”The Glitch” tonight.

”The Glitch” is exactly what I thought it was going to be. A standout experience and experience and something you’ve never seen before just like its creator.

We are now entering an era where we want to know more about what is going on on the other side of the world.

How people are living, their culture and what is their reality compared to ours.

Sometimes the depiction of such reality is either unfair or made to look down at somebody. Other times, filmmakers have the challenge to depict a reality in a way to uplift what other cultures are bringing to the table.
