Hip-Hop

This is the first and potentially only Hip-hop mixtape from artist and multi-instrumentalist AZURI MOON.

ALL MC, ALL INSTRUMENTS and ALL PRODUCTION by AZURI MOON

This free mixtape is a poetic collection of his thoughts and feelings and extrapolations during this time in his life.

"I have always seen Hip-hop as a powerful platform for expressing your individuality. It is a genre that says, 'This is Me."

The first track, G.O.A.T. Pop #1 - is basically me kicking in the door saying here I am, this is AZURI.

The second track, Dear Diary is a personally reflection on my struggles with my parents and relationships.

The thirds track, "Don't really change none" is a social critique on social culture, music and hip-hop today.

GLITCH

Story: For this piece, I was inspired by older periods in music where an instrumentalist would step to the front of the stage while their band mates took a break and command a space for 5-10 minutes. When Jimmy Page took the stage at Royal Albert Hall or Hendrix at Woodstock (Star Spangled Banner). When Miles Davis stood back in approval of a soloist or Coltrane would play before Love Supreme. When Eddie wrote and performed "Eruption" or John Bonham caused an figurative earthquake with his "Moby Dick" solo. These moments and so many others became a cliche in the 80's-90's and was rejected by the grunge movement and later pop and hip-hop genres that tended to focus more on the vocalist/MC. But it's been a long time since then and people are starting to appreciate instrumentalists in a new and exciting way. And all of this interest in platforms like instagram have allowed for new and interesting avenues on peoples instruments; However, we rarely take that out of our bedroom and even with today's master and virtuoso guitarists like, Tosin Abasi or Plini, it is rare or virtually unheard of them to play without a band or track. "GLITCH" is my contemporary expression of that previous tradition. One musician and one moment to suck the air out of the room. Appreciate you and your attention.
