Soluh! - Incredible Heat Machines
Incredible Heat Machines is the first release from a group of producer BSTFRND and artist/poet Robalu. The album incorporates a couple different vibes, and the first and most prominent being space. From the stars on the cover of the album, Soluh! wants to take this album out of this world and time. The two met in college in Richmond, Virginia and built the group from there. They have both worked independently on their crafts, BSTFRND releasing his own independent projects and Robalu writing poetry and rapping via many different outlets. Robalu on the album channels inspiration from a wide variety of artists of the time. I'd compare his flow to Ab-Soul meets Childish Gambino with a splash of Kendrick Lamar. This creates a very unique flow and vibe from a rhyme standpoint on the album. The album is written in memory of Robert Earl Gibson Sr. who is commemorated most commonly on The Departure. The Albums aura is mystical and rhyme infested with metaphors taking over and dominating a smooth solid productional album from BSTFRND. My only critique would be that I wish the Rhymes were a touch louder. But it's a great product overall and well worth the $10 they're selling it on Bandcamp and Itunes for. Show this new group some love and let 'em know DrewT513.com sent you.
