French Producer Terem Exceeds Expectations In New EP ‘Intuition In The Keys’ (Review)

A few days ago I wrote about Terem, an eccentric, yet powerful French producer who dug deep into my soul off of one track. Interestingly enough, Look On The Bright Side was a pure instrumental. Although there were no vocals, the record brought into mind the importance of gratitude – even in dark times. Terem’s full length, Intuition In the Keys, is finally here and exceeded … Continue reading French Producer Terem Exceeds Expectations In New EP ‘Intuition In The Keys’ (Review)

Casscade Drops His Best, And Most Mature Project Yet – ‘Ignorance Is Bliss’

Casscade’s first post on flowsfordays was his Valentine’s Day single Favorite Girl, an impressive track with a Janet Jackson sample. This was no corny R&B record, but a synopsis about an ex who supported his creative endeavors who is no longer in his life.

I dubbed … Continue reading Casscade Drops His Best, And Most Mature Project Yet – ‘Ignorance Is Bliss’

Newman – ‘Elminá’ (Project Premiere & Exclusive Interview)

Making a flawless album takes time, dedication, persistence, and confidence. If the process gets ‘hard’, many artists rush it, or even quit. There are still a plethora of rappers who stick with it till the end, and actually put out some dope content. In my eyes, this should be standard if you want people to support you. A few months ago Newman, from North Carolina, sent … Continue reading Newman – ‘Elminá’ (Project Premiere & Exclusive Interview)

Pigeons & Planes’ Freestyle Winner K1NG ELJAY Showcases His Production Chops On Instrumental Project ‘ROYALTY: The Common Tape’
