In keeping with our frequent discussions around the concept of Real Music, we take a little look today at a brilliantly talented musician and rapper HoffaOTR based in New York. More Time is the brand new track from this awesome soul, featuring his all skills and talents. Right from the offset, fans of Rap and hip-hop are likely to get a great sense of nostalgia from this track, as well as something brand new to be swept away by.
The type of rap that HoffaOTR offers has a lot to it that is fairly fresh sounding. He’s not simply mimicking other artists and is not particularly reminiscent of anyone else at all – which is great; that voice is his, everything from the tone, the mellow yet deep performance style, and even the slight hint of an accent, you know who you’re listening to.
The track itself is one that really gets better the more you listen to it. Once you’re locked in; once something has caught your attention, it’s not a song you’ll want to skip past at all. The music behind the vocal is of the utmost highest quality, first and foremost; that’s the production, the mix, the creativity, then on top of that you have these lyrics, and not even just lyrics – words alone have little impact, it’s the delivery that makes it matter in music – the performance of these lines and that hook is on point.
On top of it all, More Time and rap vocal has this thoroughly chilled out sound to it, a mood which passes on to you as you listen; it’s effective, it’s music doing what it should, flowing freely to make you feel good when you listen. Rather than shouting or screaming to get your attention, this leading vocal speaks with a calm sort of confidence – a certainty that is easy to listen to and take on-board. It makes it all very believable, and therefore pretty easy to trust and relax to.
