~Elaquent (HW&W Recordings)
Canadian hip-hop sensation Elaquent returns with the Green Apples and Oranges EP—another vibrant exhibition of ahead-of-the-curve production and musicianship from one of the great young producers in the game. Following his excellent 2012 EP Parallel, the Guelph, Ontario-based artist says he sees this new collection as a diverse, challenging attempt at furthering his skills as a composer.
In the past, Elaquent has described his own style as “wonky,’ highlighting his penchant for off-kilter rhythmic foundations and twisted samples of sounds and vocals that seem to buzz in and buzz out of frame.
Green Apples and Oranges definitely "exercises a little more restraint". It has its melodies in check (check out “The Official”) while maintaining Elaquent’s gifts for keeping fans guessing (“Treehome 94’” could make you go crazy). It's infectious and catchy all right but this isn’t to suggest it’s no less challenging than the work he’s best known for.
“I've always been very unapologetic regarding my sound, but I think a couple songs may catch a few people off guard,” says Elaquent. “Nevertheless, I'll let the people be the judge.”
