Master Mode (Ahmed, Mohammed Shaibu)
Making Music is a promising rendition of rap music attempting a sweet blend of new school and golden age sounds with hardcore and slightly commercial responses. The sounds are purely hip-hop and stylishly gangsta while lyrics are characteristically subtle.
Lyrically poetic and appreciably so but the album does not reflect enough innovative embrace to appeal to the continued evolution of hip-hop.
The rap features and sounds bear pinches of legendary attributes of 2-pac, the Notorious BIG, Lauryn Hill, and some other renowned tastes as well as contemporary traces of Kendrick Lamar, M.I, and Kanye West.
The Afro-infusions in the Making Music album are aptly rendered and exciting but the rythming on most of the tracks are not pleasingly refined.
The album layout is standard and some of the tracks connect to real-life folk and are indeed expressive, inspiring and revealing.
On the overall, Making Music by Dcharlie portrays passion and it is an obstinate expression of form. It may not be viably commercially but intriguingly captivating.
A copy of the album can be gotten here,
I am sure your heads will keep nodding.
MakingMusic album review by Jang Gyang
MY FIRST IMPRESSION BY HERNANDEZ CHUWANG ON ‘MAKING MUSIC’ ALBUM CREATED BY CHARLIEWell first of all i love the idea of a producer expressing his art in an album, you get to hear music from a whole new perspective so when i heard about the album i was super excited…..so…..i will start with tracks on the album that blew my mind and then why i feel they are dope.
1. Microphone Crush by D charlie ft illmastah and icesizay- Once you listen to this track you will understand why it’s my fav it is a very creative song, the writing is out of this world, it reminds me of MI’s blaze, a crazy description of love abi na crush for the Mic as ill mastah puts it….the choice of words its poetic and the beats on the other hand is so smooth, a feel of old hip hop very rich thumbs up to D Charlie and ice izay did justice to the song!
2. Jezebel by D Charlie ft Sho and ice sizay- Maybe is the horns? or the is it the delivery of Sho and the writing of Jezebel’s seduction whatever it is the whole song got me grooving, its subtle but still catches your attention, icesizay again gave the song a great hook.
3.First Impressive by D Charlie ft DNA and Hagalstine Tisloh- It will interest you to knowthat the hook was done by a male called Hagalstine you will hardly tell that it wasn’t a female’s voice, he hits some pretty high notes that will shock you then DNA gave us great song writing with so much morals and he delivered it well, very clear very strong i love this track and of course the beats was dope.
4. Memory lane by D Charlie ft Kroniq – Kroniq makes you fall in love in making music, he definately caused chaos with his punch lines on this song, he makes old school hip sounds cool and still appeals to those who are not even hip hop head, i love the sound and i love the rap.I think kroniq has got a new fan.
5 Germinate by D Charlie ft Dr Smith ft MSmooth- its not fair that you have a great beat, a bad ass rapper and an awesome vocalist on one track on one song haba its too much for just one song, Dr smith delivered quite well the hook sound soooo good Germinated angelic sounds then great production from DCharlie.
