“Money Train” is a solid track by “Milli On” with a little bit of all the best parts of hip-hop and Rap music. For the most part, the track brings audiences classic hip-hop energy; a thick beat, an interesting leading riff that repeats throughout with an attractive video – the signature sound of the music – and the leading rap vocal. The rap delivery has an intense yet mellow vibe to it – the passion is there without over-focusing on speed or shouting, and this approach is far more effective in making you really want to listen. It’s also a great voice to listen to, with great flow.
The track has a great vibe, it’s addictive; the rhythm is consistent, so it keeps you captive, but the sounds are all very unexpected and unusual. The leading riff has a retro and fairly simplistic nature to it, yet the choice of notes adds to the vibe, they add to the intensity, which somehow builds and builds despite the music seemingly remaining on the same plain throughout. It’s a clever bit of production, and it’s always interesting at all times. It’s the sort of music that is difficult to place within a certain environment, but then without a doubt will fit quite brilliantly amidst whatever it is that you’re doing when you hit play. It’s fun, it’s atmospheric, and it’s easy to get into.
Structurally the track isn’t an obvious one to follow. The music works, the evolution occurs throughout and it makes sense, however unpredictable it may be. Alongside the rap edge and atmosphere is this featured vocal melody that really adds something fresh and alternative to the mix. The vocal delivery in this case brings softness in a way, emotional honesty that works in unison with the rap lyrics and concept but also contrasts with it in the gentle performance style and the feelings so clearly displayed. All of this takes place in a creatively structured track that has been well thought out and well produced so as to give you the full-throttle audio experience you’d be hoping for when seeking out fresh hip-hop.
Production-wise the music is on point, creatively and professionally crafted and so well mixed. The accompanying video allows you a real bit of insight as to who these creatives are and what was potentially the intended output of these songs – what was going through their minds, where these particular moments of expression came from. Stay tuned with Milli On to witness many more awesome works in the future.
