What We Liked: Good beats, mellow vibes
What We Didn’t Like: Songs sound the same, trance-like effects
RADIcule is talented musician Jared Hunter, who creates interesting and unique instrumental Jazz/Hop music on his new EP “Waltz to Ganymede.” The songs have a very mellow, dream-like vibe that melts all the stresses away from everyday life, and puts the listener in a calm, relaxed mood.
“Wood Grain” is a jazzy, mellow song with heavy percussion, a head-bopping beat, and dream-like organ cords. It sounds like music that you hear blasting in DSW as you browse through the huge selection of shoes. It calms you, puts you at ease, and eases you into an almost trance-like state, perhaps to persuade you to mindlessly spend tons of money on shoes you never planned on purchasing. The next song, “Billion Woolongz” is another dreamy, jazzy, mellow song. It sounds very similar to the first song, but is still enjoyable to listen to. Again, it’s another shopaholic’s theme song– blasting through the speakers in Macy’s as you look at the clothes on the 50% off rack. “Tango for Mars” has a funkier, more eclectic vibe to it. The beat is good, the instrumentation interesting. Sounds of a record scratching mixed in with the percussion are unique and keeps your interest. The song would work better if there was more going on– it seems too sparse and ends too quickly.
Overall it’s a tight instrumental collection of smooth Jazzy Hip-Hop beats. RADIcule is on his way to having a great career in the music business.
RADIcule has a good feel for what puts listeners in a chillaxed state of mind. His jazzy, head-bopping, relaxing songs are the perfect soundtrack for a shopping excursion or a trip to the spa. The only thing that RADIcule needs to be careful of is having his songs all sound too similar to one another. But despite that, his songs are great to listen to and need no words to have a powerful effect.
