Exclusive Artist Review: AMA IZIIAN & Crooklyn Masters – “The Moment” Single

Emerging out the gate three years ago in the prominently elite NYC music scene, notable rising artist-collaborators AMA IZIIAN & Crooklyn Masters have been hitting the ground running with their distinctively futuristic sound and electronically-infused R&B aura – all diligently wrapped up in a tightly-knit package that brings their charismatic presence and next-level production value together; proving that their musicianship factors and artistic merit goes above and beyond today’s contemporary industry standard. And the dynamic duo demonstrates this brilliantly with their newest anchor single “The Moment”.

This track’s beat structure is ambient, anthemic and atmospheric throughout the song’s duration and really sets the tone for how it all plays out. AMA’s soothing and sensual vocal delivery really delves into this song’s aura that will easily keep any R&B fan fully engaged in his story-telling lyrical style, and will easily entice an essence of inspiration for singers that have a knack for an effective rhythmic vocal flow altogether. The verses are unquestionably versatile and AMA’s multifaceted qualities are apparent from the very minute the song starts. Crooklyn Masters’ ability behind the mixing board is also given a crucial spotlight with this track’s thoroughness along with the ability to showcase attentiveness to detail. It’s creative, innovative, and even encompasses a familiarity of nostalgia that we remember from the 90s and mid-2000s eras – but is also solidified and implemented with today’s modern sensibility, reminding us why we fell in love with the genres in the first place.

Another notable factor is the anthemic buildups between the verses and choruses. While the verses are more subtle, by the time the powerful chorus kicks in, you can feel the temperature rise right before the measure fully transitions. The chorus is wholesome, full and really serves up that next-level platter of raw emotion and genuine energy. You can tell musical blood, sweat and tears went into this track’s production and performance value, which makes this track a standout of its calibre and a visceral listening experience. AMA’s melody choices are brilliantly written and truly gives this song the type of staying power you don’t hear very often – where it stays with you even long after it’s over. This track is the first anchor single off the duo’s upcoming 7-track EP ‘Love Slave Auction’, which was written and put together during the Covid pandemic.

Once you yourself take a listen to “The Moment”, you will definitely be heavily anticipating to hear the rest of the EP, slated for release later this year. Until then, you can check out “The Moment” on Spotify, Apple Music, SoundCloud, iTunes and several other digital music streaming platforms. You’ll be more than glad that you did, and even if this is the first time you’ve heard AMA IZIIAN & Crooklyn Masters, it certainly won’t be your last.
