Clever rhyming techniques, melodic vocals and a visceral Hip Hop sound is what clearly makes DRK Sharlo vital voices of versatility for the genre. Comprised of Austin-based rappers Jony Shelby and Mad Nice, the duo have come together to create like-minded music that is innovative, influential and next level. And since the release of their debut single “Changes” (produced by VanillaGod), DRK Sharlo has proven that their collaborative effort is onto something.
“Changes”, released exclusively only to SoundCloud and YouTube, is a collective exchange of multifaceted melody choices and ambient beat structures. The duo puts together a track that is subtle yet still attention-grabbing in a way that both rappers are showcased properly. Both artists bring their own elements to the song, but the overall anthemic feel and good vibes is always present between the duo and is consistent with what they both present in the overall atmosphere of the track. It’s a solid chemistry that mixes very well.
With a sing-songy style and atmospheric vibe, the track is very crucial with its catchy vocal melody choices which gives the song a great sense of authenticity and musicianship. There aren’t any convoluted post production theatrics that drown out the vocals and it really leaves the perfect amount of room for each vocalist to bring their skill right to the surface without any unnecessary noise or distractions. It’s a versatile song that brings both vocalists together and really shows how effective a collective effort can be, if done right. And “Changes” really hits it out of the park.
The single is gonna be followed up by DRK Sharlo‘s upcoming EP, slated for release on December 14th of this year. This is definitely a record to look forward to, especially if you’ve heard the single. The dynamic duo is definitely ending the year with a bang to start off 2019 with just as much force. The EP will be available on all digital music retailers and streaming platforms, and will become one of your favorite releases before the year is out. Mark your calendars.
