The "Above The Clouds" EP is the collaborative release from emcee Raashan Ahmad and Portland, ME hip hop producer Phoniks. Its infectious combination of electric piano loops, filtered basslines, and lively drum breaks lay the backbone as Raashan exhibits his natural groove as an emcee masterfully over the project's 7 cuts. Positive lyricism and jazzy soundscapes invoke memories of artists like A Tribe Called Quest and De La Soul while featured emcees such as Virginia's Awon, Chicago's MC ADaD and Slimkid3 of legendary hip-hop group The Pharcyde each bring their own unique rhyme style to balance the sonic palette. All these factors lead to a jazzed-out, feel-good project that is both relatable and refreshing, perfect to digest on a sunny afternoon cruise this summer.
