Exclusive Artist Review: Acid Messiah – “Inches” & “Cheddar Bob” Singles

Hailing from the UK landscapes of Manchester, upcoming and emerging artist Acid Messiah may be fairly new, but he’s already making impressive strides with his distinctively catchy signature sound. Utilizing several old school Rap flavors and cohesively mixing it with today’s modern sensibility, Acid Messiah’s breed of electronically-infused Hip Hop conjures up several innovative and flavorful textures that truly make him a standout of his calibre; drawing influence from several crucial industry heavyweights like Eminem, Mac Miller, A$AP Rocky, Kid Cudi, A Tribe Called Quest, and even implements influences from eclectic lyrical narratives from artists like Cage The Elephant and Tame Impala. Acid Messiah’s raw passion for his craft and insatiable desire to set the bar higher musically has been at the forefront ever since emerging into the market. And this is made especially apparent from his two newest anchor singles “Cheddar Bob” and “Inches”, two colorfully visceral tracks that demonstrate Acid Messiah’s versatility and multifaceted approach along with several angles of his songwriting ability to offer up a charismatic and catchy stylization from start to finish.

“Cheddar Bob” plays out like a character introduction. Serving up an almost 80s-stylistic Hip Hop beat with several instrumental layers, Acid Messiah’s back-and-forth narrative among the tag teaming verses delve into a storytelling method that displays two charismatic characters in the form of a hypnotic flow served up with both old school and modern flavors. This cleverly executed number is the perfect intro into Acid’s eclectic angles of his craft and truly demonstrates that he’s willing to bend the rules and even create new ones when it comes to putting out something raw, original and impressionable. This banger will win you over easily, no matter which era of Hip Hop you consider superior.

Then we have second single “Inches”, a more experimental track with atmospheric R&B flavors and a more subtle yet effective beat structure. This dangerously catchy song definitely resonates with the other single but enhances and continues Acid Messiah’s storyline and even pays dues to those who have a love for the ganja. There are several multilayered textures on this track and you can tell that the production value was very finely tuned. Acid Messiah brings the same charismatic flow to this song but also diligently showcases several new angles of his penmanship as the track plays out. It’s a hypnotic number that demands your undivided attention.

Both singles are part of Acid Messiah’s upcoming mixtape Cookie Jar, slated to drop on all major digital platforms in the coming weeks. If you’re craving something fresh and innovative but still have a love for that classic style that made the genre what it is today, then Acid Messiah will easily become an instant favorite. He’s fairly new but is already making big strides and becoming a vital voice for today’s more modern Hip Hop sensibility. These two debut singles set the bar much higher for today’s upcoming artist realm, and once you take a listen yourself, you’ll see (and hear) exactly why. You can get both tracks now on all major digital platforms. You’ll be glad you did.

Exclusive Artist Review: Craymo – “One Love, One World (We Are One)” 20th Anniversary Freedom Mix

Award Winning Orlando-based Indie/Pop LGBTQ Recording Artist Craymo has graced our platform several times and has been a close friend of the Artist Reach camp since we came onto the market. Known for his very versatile and innovative signature sound, Craymo’s tendency to write catchy and anthemic songs is not only apparent, but inspirational as well – and he brings that concept to the forefront full circle with his 20th anniversary release for his hit “One Love, One World (We Are One)”.

Accompanied by a conceptual official music video, this uplifting reggaeton number has Craymo’s signature futuristic style with distinctively versatile and inventive melodies paralleled with the multifaceted and multilayered production value he is well known for. This song without reservation diligently lives up to its title and concept both musically and lyrically, serving up an atmosphere of powerfully wholesome lyrics that touch on many key social and societal issues ranging from equality, unity, conservation and human rights. It’s a song that will easily entice you with its catchiness and at the same time deliver a powerful message just about anyone can identify with. As always, Craymo’s mid-to-high range vocals are brilliantly executed with several implemented angles showcasing his knack for effective harmonies, structures and cohesive measures; giving his audience a taste of something fresh yet still identifiable among the Pop and EDM sensibility.

This song is also proof that even though it’s an oldie, it’s still very much a goodie. This reinvented and reimagined version of a classic song among Craymo’s discography is a more than coherent exercise of shining a light on how an artist evolves over time, and it’s truly an interesting listening experience when you take a listen to the original version of this song then jump into the new version. Craymo’s ability to innovate his sound is more than apparent with this version and every one of his releases have successfully raised the bar from its predecessor just about every time.

“One Love, One World” has also garnered several awards and has been a huge impact on its own merit with its positive humanitarian message, which is expressed through Craymo himself as one of his primary goals with this song specifically. The track won the “Best Pop Dance Song”” and Best Pop Dance Mix” categories in the Fall 2021 Clouzine International Music Awards. The music video also recently won the “Award of Excellence” in the 2022 One-Reeler Short Film Competition and is currently a Finalist for “Best Pop Music Video” in the 2022 Indie Music Channel Awards in Los Angeles. The original music video won “Best Video” in the Worldwide Music Contest. The original song also won the “Best Song” category in the Hollywood Spiritual Film Festival. “One Love, One World” upon its release successfully became a top 10 download for ten consecutive years on the United Nations Project UNESCO website New Songs forPeace.org and was used as a learning aid to teach English to impoverished children in Pang Liu village in China. School teachers from all over the world started downloading the song, teaching to their students who then performed the song at their schools across the USA, Australia, China, Canada and the UK.

Overall, the 20th Anniversary version of this song not only revisits one of Craymo’s most notable and award winning releases, but also reimagines it with several innovative flavors to make it a standout of its calibre. We highly encourage you to take a listen to the original version of the song first, then this new version – that way you can hear just how much Craymo has evolved with his ability as an artist both conceptually and musically. You will not be disappointed in the least. Craymo always delivers the goods and this time is no different, and if anything, he had successfully stepped up his game even more.

It’s a song that parallels perfectly between its production and performance value without outdoing itself in any way, brilliantly concocting a futuristic electronic flavor that shines a light on every notable element of the song in both Twill’s vocal ability and writing structures. The intro of this song has ridiculous Christina Aguilera vibes with a middle eastern aura that gives it an exotic edge, then blasts into a beat structure that has an energy factor not usually heard in the electronic world. But it’s truly her vocals that live up to this song’s title, you don’t just hear a bunch of post production theatrics, but a truly talented vocalist with incredibly precise breath control, melody structure ability and ridiculous performance value. She has a rapping ability that is not only dynamic in its flow, but completely original in its execution. You’ve never heard anything like her, she’s a completely fresh sound among the female rapper spectrum.

This song’s aura and atmosphere is incredibly dynamic and inventive, serving up a very multifaceted and multilayered sound that diligently showcases Twill Distilled in a way that is not only effective, but also delivers that staying power where the song actually stays with you even long after it’s over. It’s definitely a single you will not only have on repeat, but will also entice you to do a deep dive into her career and discography altogether.
