Jeff Martin – Me vs Me
Jeff Martin and the Battle Within
19 year old Chicago singer/songwriter Jeff Martin is bursting on the scene, bringing us hot dance beats and memorable rhymes. Although a lot of the music on his LP Me vs Me may sound repetitive, it still is an impressive effort from an artist that continues to develop. Me vs Me will get you out on the dance floor, and will expose you to some unique sounds and beats.
“No Limits” has a respectable dance beat and showcases Martin’s tight flow. Although the sound is a bit Lo-Fi, the beat is catchy and will get your body moving. The lyrics carry a positive message—you can reach your dreams if you put your mind to it. On “Beast Mode,” Martin’s rapid fire rhymes are staggering—he remains on point and does not ever go off course. The frenetic, fast paced rhythm of the music gets the listener pumped up and ready to go into beast mode. The fired up style of the beat along with the fast-paced delivery of the lyrics are perfect for the subject matter. This is a prefect song to dance to at a club or rave. Martin slows things down on “Myself,” which has a mellower tempo and a slinky, techno-tinged beat to go along with his intense rhymes. The song is catchy, with unique and interesting elements. Again, Martin’s rap skills are on point, and the song sticks in your head long after it’s over. The other tracks on Me vs Me are solid Dance/Techno/Rap songs which showcase Martin’s talents and feature hot beats. But Martin needs to be careful of this and make sure that songs are unique and are distinguishable from one another.
Me vs Me is an album with great potential, and Martin has a promising future ahead of him. His rhymes are hot, and the beats are good too. The music is the perfect backdrop for fun times and nights full of dancing. I look forward to seeing what this young artist does next!
