Welcome to EvO:R Entertainment
  •  The Independent Musicians CD Reviews

    Welcome to the EvO:R Independent CD Reviews Section.
    I would like to take a few minutes to introduce ourselves to everyone. The EvO:R review section features reviews from various independent musicians that submit material for our consideration.

    I wanted to let you know a little about our review teams collective thoughts on music. It's important to let the people we review know what we think of their music and how we listened to their creations.

    We hold nothing back! The team has been instructed to be honest and respectful of all CD's reviewed.

    Artist: Sikadime
    Album: Holy Sh**t, It's A Free EP
    Style: Rap
    Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

    Since we have this great device called a computer, many rappers and people in the industry today have dedicated themselves to creating their own tracks by using software, ending up giving us a type of music that isn't really "natural," or original, but rather, obviously manufactured, right? However, other groups and artists decide to create their sound doing it in another form, playing instruments on their own or with a band, creating unforgettable and/or really entertaining melodies.

    Holy S *** t, It's A Free EP by Canadian rapper Sikadime is proof of what he spoke up, in both cases. The album starts immediately with "Good Times" sounding good old school in more ways than one. The drums and what it seems to be a trumpet has a kind of Bill Crosby sound mixed with some 80s and 90s hip hop. It has a simple rhythm but can make you dance and sing along.

    "Where I'll End Up" continues with this vibe. Again the bass, drums and trumpet come together to create something very catchy and entertaining. This is joined by the effects and rap that could compete with the greats of this genre.

    "Between The Moon & NYC" has some childish voices that add some elements of innocence to the track, as if it were a nursery rhyme. Again we have a tribute to the Big Apple.

    "The Essence" on the other hand is the opposite of what we have heard so far. It has several ingredients including a little gangster vibe in it. Snoring and piano elements and the drumů it is simple but with enough energy to hook you up.

    Songs available on Sikadime.com:
    Good Times 02:51 /  Where I'll End Up 03:12  /  Between The Moon & NYC 02:45  /  The Essence (Original 2006)  / 

    In conclusion, we see the other spectrum of this diverse genre taken from soul and gospel. Unlike the electronic sound of our times, Sikadime's latest EP is pure old school in its finest. The production is well done too.
