Artist Review: Dutch Schultz – “No Pun Intended” EP

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

With dynamic lyrical techniques and a strong vocal delivery, rapper Dutch Schultz proves that he has an insatiable passion for his craft in his newest EP No Pun Intended.

Dutch is one of those artists you wish you had discovered long ago, his climactic bars and punchlines are very story-telling in their nature and No Pun Intended showcases all the right elements that makes Dutch a gem within his caliber. His authenticity is always present, his lyrical content is anything but ordinary, and he delves into each track with a multifaceted skill set that breathes life into every measure.

One standout track on this EP is “I’m Only Human”, a song that is equally catchy as it is powerful in its visceral content and overall execution. Sharing a reminiscent feeling to Fort Minor’s “Where’d You Go”, the track is very reflective and thought provoking, showcasing a side to Dutch‘s artistic merit and emotions behind the writer that pens each measure. It’s a rollercoaster of emotions that really comes together with a chemistry that touches on equal parts originality and familiarity, giving the listener a taste of something fresh, recognizable and relatable all within the same realm.

One of the most key factors of the EP as a whole however is definitely the versatility and multifaceted nature behind each track. Each song showcases different lyrical approaches and rhythmic beats that gives Dutch a different atmosphere to work with, allowing him to really put forth a different angle his skill set offers. The EP, comprised of an array of diversity and likability factors, really casts him in a different light but still holds together the same signature sound that is known for throughout the duration of every song. You never get the same thing twice, but you can still tell it’s coming from the same artist – which really confirms the authenticity that Dutch holds in place no matter what kind of song he brings to the forefront.

Dutch, who also successfully put together the showcase School Of Rap, is definitely a treat for all those who haven’t discovered him yet. He has a strong passion for what he does, which is what makes No Pun Intended the effective record that it is. And when you take a listen for yourself, you’ll definitely understand why.
