Rythym and Blues
5 out of 5
Jeff Spec - Rhythm and Blues
Jeff Spec’s highly anticipated release “Rhythm & Blues” (Avery Records) is anything BUT a disappointment. Our favourite Vancouver/Victoria veteran chose to step up to the plate by compiling an entire album with beats featuring creatively mixed R & B samples, hand over most production to top rated local producer SWEET G, and let his personal thoughts flow poetically from his pen, and fittingly titling it "Rhythm & Blues".
The equation? Jeff Spec's heartfelt rhymes + Sweet G’s infectious beats = underground hip-hop fan’s delight!
On “My Thoughts” and “My World”, Jeff’s thought-out rhymes are accompanied by alternative sounding but reflective beats. You won’t hear about any guns or violence…simply REAL personal reflection and life experiences. "This my heartbeat believe it"
“All In Together”, “Home”, and “In The Air” feature infectious hooks by local songstress Ashleigh Eymann and the sweet vocals of Moka Only.
Crowd pleasers like “What I Do” and “Learn Ya”, balance out the album well with effervescent up-tempo beats.
"Rhythm & Blues" features just the right amount of heart and personal touch to make ya want more. This is no surprise as each and every time Jeff steps to the plate, he’s prepared to hit a home run bef! ore he e ver settles for a walk. Unlike most players in the game, Jeff’s no pinch hitter. And with his years in the field, we know he’s not about to strike out anytime soon.
