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.

Press Release: AMA Iziian Slated To Drop His Album “Woke” On December 21st

With an insatiable knack for smooth groovy guitars, glistening vocal melodies and versatile song structures, AMA Iziian proves that his upcoming album Woke will be one of the most multifaceted records to release before the year is out.

Comprised of charismatic vocals and harmonies that are reminiscent of today’s mainstream Pop artists, AMA‘s edgy Alt/Rock and at-times electronically grungy sound brings a new wave of funky riffs and measures to the forefront with undeniably catchy melody placements. The album screams of versatility; you’ll hear an array of different elements with each track, but know it’s still coming from the same artist. And that’s one of the greatest components of Woke – there’s something for everyone on this record.

Moving through his verses with a story-telling sweetness and high-ranged R&B infused vocal approach, we get to experience a solid range of different angles to AMA‘s artistic merit. From a vibrant energy in his opening number “Get It Together” to more ominously subtle textures in “Gentleman”, the facets of his signature sound are present at all times with a twist of something different in his highly eclectic sound. It’s an absolute rollercoaster from start to finish, and will surprise you by its retro style while being able to maintain an indie sensibility that is still mainstream-worthy.

But one of the most compelling things about this album is its ability to have staying power — where AMA‘s music stays with you even after the album is over. From melody structures that stay in your head or guitar riffs that have you guessing what’s next, no matter what, Woke is an album that stays with you and resonates with your musical fascinations. You’ll never hear anything quite like it, and you’ll be addicted to each track like a bad habit.

Woke officially drops on December 21st and will be available on all digital music retailers and streaming platforms. It’s the perfect release to end the year with, as well as begin your resolutions with for 2019. AMA will also be releasing his single “Naked Ballerina” on December 4th, which will also be released everywhere. If this is your first time discovering AMA Iziian, you’ll be very glad you did. Strap yourself in for a ride.
