Album review : Dynamics Plus Rocket Science

words by Jenn Carson for MusicBlogged.com

The lyrical talents and drive within the experimental music is top notch, setting a tone of high anticipation for the album.

Dynamics Plus Rocket Science

Music is logged and blogged

With his most prominent release yet Dynamics Plus sets out his creative vision of hip-hop with fast-paced lyrical talent and drive.

Sometimes I wish I could step into the mind of someone during their creative process. To see and hear what is going on and how the person came to create formulas in music, writing, art etc. Sometimes, those with talent fall just short of genius, making one wonder where something went wrong within the process. At times what is produced is top notch and addictive. Within experimentation it is difficult to find the balance between perfection and pleasantly weird. Dynamics Plus recent release The Dynamic Universe Volume 9: Rocket Science is the perfect example of what I am talking about. Now, don’t get me wrong, this is definitely a pretty solid album but that doesn’t mean I would necessarily describe the sound as “Rocket Science” as it isn’t as pristine or clean cut, but more so Steam Punk.

You’ve been producing for quite some time now. What’s it like being an old school producer in this new day and age?

I mostly grew up listening to House and the most popular dance records so the music I create has a wide range of influences. It’s a split of genres now. Making house music isn’t really based on being old school, it’s just one of my favorite sounds. I like big room and electro elements, but they don’t speak to me enough to create a work that fits squarely in those lanes. There’s an acceptance behind making what fits your ear and letting go of what’s trendy for profit’s sake. I think it’s great to have your hand on a pulse, but I am most comfortable creating from my ear and taste then with pure technical skills.

How did you first get into music production? 

Recording at other studios and always feeling rushed…trying so hard to maximize the time. It’s a creative-killer so I started building my own studio so I could create whenever I wanted to- in whatever zone I needed to be in.

When was your first big break as an electronic music producer? 

I wouldn’t even say I’ve had my big break yet. My break-though came when I decided to switch from beatz to instrumentals and then to something groovy and danceable. I was experimenting and working towards something. While sitting at a train station, I was cranking my latest mix and the kids started dancing. I knew then that I was on the right path.

Music Review Sleeping Bag Studios -The Dynamic Universe Volume 9: Rocket Science

Father, the sleeper has awakened.

Dynamics Plus – The Dynamic Universe Volume 9:

Rocket Science – Album Review

Dynamics Plus, is raising the bar for talent mighty, mighty high up and out of reach for most rappers that will ever have the experience of holding a mic.

Cause chances are, in comparison to Dynamics Plus, that’s exactly what they’re doing; holding it.

 

37961-lenzmen2bdynamics2bplusDynamics Plus – The Dynamic Universe Volume 9: Rocket Science – Album Review

Sooooooo…..yeahhhhhh. This is about as sick as it can get. Honestly…was it supposed to all come out THIS good?

This is ‘Gift-Of-Gab’ quality; you know, the dude that once rapped the periodic table of elements for the excellent hip-hop group Blackalicious? Seriously! Dynamics Plus has literally put together a lyrically perfect album here on The Dynamic Universe Volume 9: Rocket Science – one that shows this emcee could easily rhyme circles around the rest. I am not even remotely kidding people – the way this all comes together so incredibly, it’s very clear that someone….ahem….Dynamics Plus, is raising the bar for talent mighty, mighty high up and out of reach for most rappers that will ever have the experience of holding a mic.

Cause chances are, in comparison to Dynamics Plus, that’s exactly what they’re doing; holding it.

This absolutely astounding rapper brings a hip-hop flavor to his game and demonstrates his monstrous ability to put an entire dictionary’s worth of words into any 16-bars right off the drop in the INTRO track. I mean…he’s not taking a single moment off here! “Rocket Science Intro Esper Wish” will convince you straight-up and leave no doubt that you are about to go on a completely wild ride filled with rhymes designed to invade your mind.

“Phase Shift” comes out BIG right away, picking up the energy after the more-subtle intro track. But listen to the STYLE, listen to the SKILL, listen to the metering, the lyrics…I mean, Dynamics Plus literally HAS to have a foothold or a view into mainstream-life…there’s just way too much skill here to ignore. Each rhyme could just as easily make you take a moment to sit and think, as they might just make you laugh – but there’s no question about it; you’ll be glued to each and every word coming through sparklingly clear over the mic.

Dynamics Plus Seek End Destroy

I see you have constructed your own microphone…

You’ll experience the lighter-side of Dynamics Plus…I’m pretty sure that’s an extremely apt name after everything I’ve heard…I mean, it starts out with more energy and punch than you’ll find on 90% of the albums out there; and let me tell you…no matter how intense tracks like “Summer Anthem,” or “Hug The Pole” might be…or how funny some of these tales can be; the interlude “Skit Callus Interruptus” is prrrretttttty much hilarious enough to make you quickly spit out whatever you got in your mouth; there is a whole other level of energy still to come just around the corner. But for now…we’ll pretend I’m still listening for the first time out…

His ability to find something completely new to bring to any beat is uncanny. Something like “A Perfect Night/A Perfect World” almost hits an R&B-meets-Big-Band groove…but again, there’s never a moment where you’ll hear him sound out of place, or anything other than right at home no matter what style the beat is that comes his way. “Plenty To Say,” is another example of this kind of cross-genre cut; though it’s a strange one…I can’t quite put my finger on it…

…I think what it is, is just that I thought the ‘hook’ was one of the weaker ones I guess, despite an extremely convincing and amazing performance by the female vocalist. Each time this track comes on, I seem to like it more though…so maybe there is something there. At present, this wonderful lady is what sells me on this track as that is one completely committed performance, you can hear the heartbreak and emotion audibly come through radiantly.

But here we ARE; I’ve been waiting for this moment ever since the last time I heard it, which REALLY wasn’t all that long ago…I’d say approximately 52 minutes and change… “Turn It Up A Few Degrees” is one of the most exciting tunes I’ve heard from the hip-hop genre in a long time…if this isn’t played in every stadium as the ball-players get their warm-up on…then this world is behind by more than just a beat. Absolutely killer grind on this track; it’s all about the energy as Dynamics Plus once again puts the words on display with another wicked flow and tricky lyrics all crammed-in and perfectly metered-out. But does he “Turn It Up A Few Degrees?” Yes. The answer is a definite yes…and then some!

Limits and Limitations. A Message for 2015

Fallout Shelter member Drew Spence welcomes 2015 with a solid message.

Producer's Edge

Wishing you well in the coming year…

Words by Drew Spence

Happy New Year from Producer's Edge Magazine Happy New Year

I‘m sure you’ve heard the saying “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks” Or that old(er) people become “Set in their ways“. We look at that- as a statement related to stubbornness and unwillingness to change or adapt. That rigid and dogged determination to remain the same is rooted in believing you have ‘mastered yourself’. And mastering means you have learned enough about yourself to tell others exactly how you operate. The problem is, I have never heard this sentiment used in a positive way. It usually refers to or outlines an imagined boundary and leads to excuses.

“I’m the kind of person that needs….”

“Knowing me, I probably won’t….”

“See, the way that I am…I can’t….”

“I really don’t do well, when…”

Instead of learning about where you…
