Electromajic: The Remixtape – Keith Masters
Keith Masters is coming out of the Chicago scene with something called “Electromajic” which is his self-created genre that blends elements of Hip Hop, Electro, Pop, Glitch, Dubstep and Disco music. He’s had supporting performances with the Wu-Tang Clan, Foster The People and more. “Electromajic: The Remixtape” is his latest project that he has available for your listening pleasure. The Remixtape is eleven tracks long and out of those we have a handful of favorites. Going in order of appearance, Journey, is the first glimpse we really get of his style. The melody is very upbeat and we get to hear Keith Masters throw down on this track (his flow is so fast and yet so smooth) with some catchy lyrics included by Lady Nogrady.
Next up is the crazy actor and title, Gary Busey (Life Good), it’s a slower pace than the previously mentioned song. But we are able to hear a little more of that Electro touch that he mentioned to be blended into his style. This is where I feel like he’s a mix of an early Will Smith and Kid Cudi (especially at the end). Rebel featuring Digikid84 is actually the first song that I head by Keith Masters and is what ultimately led me to his SoundCloud page. This could be a futuristic song on rebellion, I think this really showcases his talent and the style that he is trying to create. Finally, I want to talk about 1988 Girls which is one of the last tracks on the Remixtape that highlights that Disco, Hip Hop feel of his music; though with this one claiming the year of 1988 it definitely gives you the Retro vibe as well. Overall I would give this Remixtape a 4.5 out of 5; it’s a lot of fun and worthwhile for the repeated listening experience. Even though I only covered 4 songs, there are far more than those 4 that are worth a listen – just list to the whole thing, you’ll like it!
