Non-Prog CD Reviews

Robbie Z

Hot Wheelz (digital single)

Review by Gary Hill

This is at its core a hip hop song. There are definitely trappings of both electronica and pop music here, though. The sound here is really a unique blend. I'd guess that this might appeal to even listeners who don't normally like hip hop. Yet, it is undeniably set in that genre.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2019  Volume 3 at lulu.com/strangesound.

Track by Track Review
Hot Wheelz

Weird electronic textures open this. The vocal comes in over the top of that. There is a cool meter to the rap. This seems to blend an electronic pop element with hip hop. It's odd in a great way. It has a legitimate hip hop sound at the same time, though. This is quite interesting.
